Tropical Cocktail Makeup Tutorial

    Can’t wait for the review on the Revlon lip stains, I’ve been wanting to try them but they’re usually close to $10 :/ , also do you find the Tokidoki pencils a lil hard to use? I bought the same set while they’re pigmented and very glittery they seem a lil hard for me to get on, like they’re not as creamy. I love them though, great look luved it :D

      The eyeliners at Hot Topic are surprisingly pigmented and are really easy to put on. They’re pretty cheap too.

    What brushes did you use for this tutorial? Do you think you can also add what brushes you used when doing tutorials? It might not be necessary..I’m just slowly building my brush set and I like to use some of your tutorials as guides. lol Thanks and love the tuts!

    Absolutely gorgeous Leesha, I love the color combination in this look. It made me pine for a tropical beverage, complete with tiny umbrella.^^

    If you apply the lipstain first and the balm after it won’t look so splotchy. ;)

    It looks amazing! love it! I’ve looked a lot for a lip gloss/lipstick… any lip product with that exact colour, so now I know where I can find it.
    I love all Inglot products, but ’cause I don’t live in the U.S. or any country that has an Inglot shop in, I can’t buy them. Is there any other place I can purchase those products?

    Man, I wish I could get away with bright colors like this… this is one of my favorite of your looks yet! :D

    Hey, I’ve been looking for something I can contour with and I just don’t seem to have a clue. Do you have any suggestions of products for someone with fair skin (like yourself), something that’s fairly easy to find and doesn’t cost $20 and up?
    Thanks in advance, you’re my fave makeup guru!

    I love all of your looks. They are so creative and hot, But I just can’t really get myself to wear bright colors. I stick to neutrals. Golds, browns, purples, greys. Could you do a look with those colors? Thank you :)
