A COVERGIRL makeup look and Ulta giveaway

A red carpet rock-inspired makeup look with pops of pink and purple

You know what they say: “Always be prepared…”

…to walk a red carpet with rock stars. ๐Ÿ™‚

Because seriously, you never know.

In the event you find yourself alongside the left shark Katy P. as her plus one at a fancy awards show, you need a makeup look with an edge, maybe like this sassy red carpet rock-inspired eye with smoked-out purple liner and cool-toned lids.

Here’s a step-by-step in pics (YouTube tutorial coming later this week, and there’s also a giveaway at the bottom of this post). First, I prepped my skin with some products from Olay, then followed that up with lip colors and eye products from Covergirl (all available now at Ulta)

By the way, Ulta shoppers, from now through February 14, 2015, buy any Covergirl product, and get an extra Covergirl product for 50% off! (BOGO 50% off)

A quick step-by-step red carpet rock-inspired makeup look with pops of pink and purple

First, gotta prep! I started by washing my face with Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream Cleanser before moisturizing with Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Intense Repair Treatment.

Next, I evened out my skin tone and texture by applying primer, foundation and concealer, then filled in my brows with Covergirl Bombshell Powder Brow Liner in Dark Brown.

To give my eyes more depth and drama, I lined my water and lash lines with a black eyeliner and smudged out my upper lash lines with the darkest shade from Stunning Smokeys, another Covergirl Eye Shadow Quad.

Now, a pop of purple! Using a wet brush head, I blended the two purple shades from the Covergirl Eye Shadow Quad in Va-Va Violets, then applied them on my lower lash line. Once dry, I blended out the edges to smoke 'em out and diffuse any harsh lines.

 After bronzer, blush and highlighter on my cheeks, I lined and filled in my lips with a hot pink lip liner, on top of which I blended Covergirl Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Honeyed. Lastly, for extra oomph, aka "sparkle and shine," I accented the center of my lips with Covergirl Lip Lava Lip Gloss in Ooh La Lava.

  9. Danielle D says:

    I’m so bad at styling hair that when my hair dryer broke on a trip to South America 4 years ago(darned voltage conversions!) I didn’t replace it for…like 6 months. And even now it is rare that I even blow dry it. I suffer from serious hair laziness. If a hair style can’t be achieved with beach spray and a claw clip it is beyond me.

  10. Maribel D. says:

    I love how wonderful your skin looks!

  11. Solangel says:

    On a scale of 1 to 10, my hairstyling is 1….I just let it airdry! Thank you for this giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best eye cream? It’s a toss-up between Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge & Clinique Superdefense age defense eye cream in SPF 20 . . .

  18. Kathy Hanley says:

  27. Lauren says:

    I’ve been using the regenetist micro sculpting cream for a while now, and I love it, like most of their products. The luminous line is also fantastic. For an eye cream though, I grab my Roc, for the retinol. I’ve been curious to try the full lash bloom mascara, but it might just be because of the cheery pink packaging!

  28. A Rod says:

    Love the look.

  29. bhevarri says:

    I make the best pizza! You know why??? Cause MY pizza is COVERED WITH ONIONS!!!!! YUM!

    My Dad makes the best pizza.

  52. Chelsea B says:

  53. Pamela says:

    I’m kind of an eye cream whore. I’m using Clinique’s all about eyes rich right now as well as Mario Badascu’s one with hylauranic acid but I always come back to Tarte’s maracuja cream. It’s nice and emollient but absorbs completely.

    Thanks for the contest.

  54. Crystal says:

    My hairstyling skills are like a -2. If I couldn’t straighten my hair, I’d probably be bald. Seriously so lacking. Lol.

  55. Laura says:

    Love your hair ๐Ÿ™‚

  56. Lisa Foster says:

    My hairstyling skills are pretty mediocre, a 4 out of 10 at best. I’ve never figured out how to do an “updo” right.

  57. Liz says:

    while I think my makeup skills are pretty decent, my hair styling is limited to brushing it and basic ponytails. I don’t even dry it unless I’m visiting a place where the temps are below freezing.

  58. Ashley says:

    I’ll take your perfect skin and a side of lip lava for $1000 Alex!!!

  59. Karyn Kirke says:

  60. Sarah Hall says:

    Ciro’s makes the best pizza in our area.

  62. Zoe says:

    Loving the eyeshadow!

  63. shayla carpenter says:

    My chinese Zodiac is the Rabbit, which I love, feel like it describes me a lot better than Scorpio.

    I’ve also just met this great tabby, woke up to her sitting on my chest ready to snuggle. She laid there for 30 minutes just purring at me, I’m contemplating ‘borrowing’ her from my friend:)

    I actually just started using eye cream. Not sure how recent it was, but Ulta & Target finally carry the Boots brand in the US! I started using the Beautiful Skin Rich Hydrating Eye Cream. So far, so good! It really hydrates & is gentle even when I get it close to my eyes.

  149. GPATRICK says:

    My tried and tested eye cream has always been Philosophy’s Hope in a Tube. It’s a simple, glycerin and vitamin based formula but it’s pleasantly thick and works well with makeup. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have to know what you’ve been doing for your skin because it looks amazing! My skin is by no means terrible but I’m always trying to tone down the redness in my cheeks so I can wear blush. Sounds

    First of all, you are rockin’ that look! I love the Notice Me Nude pallete! It is beautiful! Ok, since we share a love of felines, did you see that guy who spent $50k to make his home an amazing house for all his cats?! It is a bit much, but I’d like to incorporate some of the ideas, like having shelf walkways for them and scratching posts attached to the walls so they can climb up to the walkways. Kinda cool! Here’s the link or you can just go to pet360.com. Enjoy! ~ Pam

Having just started blogging again (specifically with a beauty blog), I’m always on the hunt for new products to try out. I’ve never shopped at Ulta, so between the items in your giveaway and the $50 gift card would definitely help me grab a few things for my first haul and Ulta review! Thanks for the chance ๐Ÿ™‚
