New Years Eve Makeup Tutorial





Hey! I hope you like this tutorial for New Years makeup! I decided to go in a "wearable" direction, because I know there are already going to be a lot of colorful looks out there. I don't own any glitter, (I know, what is WRONG with me!?!?!?) but if you have some feel free to go ham with it!!! Also, please ignore my eyebrows... They have been needing attention for a while now... I actually got them waxed the day after I filmed this... Womp womp...

4 Looks, 1 Palette Using Lorac MegaPro 2



Heeeeeeyyyy!!

So today I'm sharing this video with you. I was brainstorming ideas of looks with the Lorac MegaPro 2 and I was having a hard time. I just wanted to stick in a little corner of the palette.. I needed to break out of the rut I was in with this palette. So I sat down and had a good long look at her. 



After about 5 minutes, I turned on my camera and let the creative juices flow, 4 times.... It's a little odd, looking at yourself in the mirror with 2 different eye looks on at the same time. It's also really cool to see exactly how each style makes your eyes look differently! 






I'm planning on doing more videos like this, are there any palettes you'd like to see something like this with?? If I own it, I'll definitely try this out!!

I hope you guys enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed filming it!!

Have a WONDERFUL day, and if someone hasn't already told you today, You are Beautiful!!\

Orange Blowout Eyeshadow Tutorial



Hello!! I was inspired to create this look because fall is almost over (or is over, depending on who you're talking to....) and I'm not ready to say goodbye.... I wanted to get one last fall inspired look up before I dive into Holiday Makeup!! 


I am so in love with the way this look turned out!! I think this it, though bright and bold, is still rather wearable! Especially if you have BLUE eyes!! What do you think?


Hope you enjoy!! Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to write or film about!!!

Have a great day, and if someone hasn't already told you today, You are BEAUTIFUL!!!

November Favorites!

Today I'm sharing with you my favorite products from November. I didn't wear a lot of makeup last month, but when I did, I pretty much wore the same thing each time.. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.. But since it was such a small collection of items, and I was truly enjoying using them, I thought I'd share them with you!!


Foundation

I've been LOVING this foundation combo! 110 is just a little too yellow for me, and 115 is too dark, but mixed together, they are my perfect shade!! When I first tried this foundation I was NOT impressed. My Revlon Clolorstay (Oily/Combination formula) held up way longer and looked better. But, I have really come to enjoy this foundation over time. I think when you are trying a new product, you have to learn the right technique that really makes that product sing! I prefer to apply this with a damp sponge, but I've also had good results using a flat top kabuki brush. 

I know what you're saying, "That's a bronzer and its shimmery! Why are you using that to set your foundation?" Well, I don't use it to set my whole face, just the arias I'm not quite wanting to highlight, but still want a little something special. This is a VERY FAIR "bronzer," Medium to Deep skin tones can use this as a highlight. I find that this is too dark to use as a highlight, its just a touch darker than my skin tone. But if I apply it shearly, it gives me a radiant "real skin" texture. I have OILY skin, so I have to set the crap out of my foundations. This powder helps to add that extra layer of oil control, while keeping my skin looking like skin. 

I have 2 favorite highlighters this month, as you can tell.... I have been using these two interchangeably, and sometimes at in tandem.... Yes, that's right, I double highlight!! I am not ashamed! Any who... Both of these are amazing highlighters! Super glowy and light enough to show up on my paper white skin! 

Eye Shadow

I have three favorites in this category... 
1: Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes palette. This is an AMAZING all matte palette. There are a few colors that are very similar to each other, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, especially since they are the shades I tend to over use the most... If you like mattes, you'll love this palette, and the good news is, this is in the collection at Ulta!!!
2: The Balm Nude Tude. This palette is incredible! I probably say that about all my palettes... But it’s true! I love this palette so much!! One particular shade speaks to me deep down; Sexy, a deep brown with a lot of red undertones. If a color could be “sexy” this is it!  My only complaint is that there aren't more mid tone matte shades. But that is why I’ve been using my Essential Mattes palette…
3. Coulour Pop Super Shock Central Perk. I have been OBSESSED with this shadow since I got it a few months ago! But in November, I couldn't put it down!! It's so warm and delicious!!! 
I actually have a tutorial up on my YouTube channel, using both palettes and the Colour Pop shade!

So, these have been all my favorites from November! What were your favorites last month? Let me know down below!

Have a Wonderful Day!!
And If someone hasn't already told you today, You are beautiful!!

I'm Obsessing Over These Looks!


With the cold weather settling in, I, like everyone else, am starting to gravitate towards darker, more dramatic, smokey looks. My Pinterest account is exhibit one, proving my [unhealthy?... Nah!] obsession.


Look 1, Look 2, Look 3, Look 4, Look 5


1.Linda Halberg is probably the most famous Makeup Artist in the world...(?) If you don't know who she is, you've probably pinned at least one[hundred] of her looks.. She is definitely a huge inspiration to me. Perhaps even a muse?

2. I absolutely can not get enough of this look! I LOVE purple eyeshadows and this look makes them SO WEARABLE!!!

3. This look is so sexy and intense! I can not get enough of gold eyeshadow, but sometimes the gold can tend to fade away or blend too much in with your skin tone. With this look, you don't have to worry about the gold getting lost, because it really pops against that purpley-grey on the outer and inner corners! Also, I'm a sucker for a spotlight, and this is the definition of a spotlight...

4.That inner corner highlight, though!!! Everything about this look is amazing! From the greige ombre lip to the warmth in the crease and those lashes! Lashes-for-freaking-days!!! And lets not forget about her skin... It's FLAWLESS and her contour is on point (I boycott Fleek....)

5.This look is so WARM and golden and makes me want to eat my weight in Caramel (who are we kidding here, I ALWAYS want to eat copious amounts of Caramel...) Literally, if this is not the makeup version of a Yule Tide Fire, I don't know what is...
