January BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

This morning I got my January box from BoxyCharm and I thought that now would be the perfect time to go through it. The theme this month is perfect for January, as it’s Fresh Start.

IMG_7176

The first product we have is the Dr. Brandt Do Not Age With Dr. Brandt Triple Peptide Eye Cream. This is a super hydrating peptide powered cream that is supposed to recharge tired looking eyes for a more rested look, reduce puffiness and fade dark circles, diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines and help to restore and replenish moisture. I do like a good eye cream and Dr. Brandt is a great brand, so I’m interested to try this out. 

IMG_7178

Next we have the Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya. This is an oil and silicone free moisturizer that is supposed to give you lightweight and lasting hydration without feeling greasy. This has Moringa Water, Papaya and Willow Herb, which are to help clear pores of dirt and impurities and reduce shine. This is paraben free, formaldehyde free, synthetic fragrance free, phthlate free, mineral oil free and cruelty free. This is recommended for combination and oily skin. I really like the packaging on this with the shape and color of the pot. 

IMG_7180

Moving on we have the Ciate London Velvet Eyeshadow Palette. This is a relatively new palette and it has a mix of soft shimmers, hyper metallics and velvety smooth mattes. This formula is supposed to be very pigmented and have super soft application. I really like the packaging on this palette, it has a matte pinky/purple top with ‘Ciate London’ written in rose gold and the bottom of the palette is a shiny rose gold.

IMG_7181

You get a good size mirror on this palette, which I always appreciate.

IMG_7182

This is a 12 pan palette and the shadows have a wavy look in the pans. There is some irony here, I didn’t think that I would get this palette in my box so I ordered it from Ciate before I got the box. I already told a friend they could have this particular palette, so when I get the other one I’ll swatch it. 

IMG_7183

 

 

 

The second to last palette we have is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This is my Choice item for the month. This palette is brown and the top has a matte flowered design with ‘Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise’ in a white square in the middle of the palette written in gold and there is a gold boarder. 

IMG_7184

For a face palette, this has a good size mirror and the mirror has a gold boarder around it. 

IMG_7185

With this palette you get four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns. 

IMG_7186

They look darker in the pans, but when I swatched them I found that they all seem to be very workable and buildable. 

IMG_7188

And the last product we have is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This has sweet orange and coconut essential oils. The sweet orange has a ton of Vitamin C which evens skin tone and protects against free radicals and the coconut moisturizes so you get soft and supple lips. This smells really good it has a tropical, citrusy and sweet scent and it’s bee friendly. I love a good lip balm, especially during the winter months because the cold can really chap your lips. Bali Balm has a deal going on on their website right now that is in conjunction with BoxyCharm, so if you use the code VALENTINES21 you get 55% off of your order. 

IMG_7187

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your January box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my February box :).

Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post for you and it’s a review of the Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection. I got this for Christmas and I’ve been using it since. So with this collection you get three pieces, there’s a mini mascara, a face palette and an eyeshadow palette. This has a holo look as well, it can be pink/purple or it can be a teal/turquoise.

IMG_6956

IMG_6957

The mascara that you get in this collection is a mini Better Than Sex. This is one of my favorite mascaras and a holy grail item for a lot of people. This has a nice big brush that coats all of your lashes, the formula is great because it not only gives you volume and length but it doesn’t transfer or flake. 

IMG_7111

IMG_7112

The next item we have is the face palette. This has a very glamorous design, it has diamonds and sparkles with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and a grey/black bow on top. In this face palette you get a blush and a highlighter. 

IMG_7108

The inside of the packaging is pretty as well. The top is teal with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and has a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a grey/black sparkly bow. The bottom, where the powders are is a shiny gold. 

IMG_7109

Onto the actual powders, the blush is in the shade Makeup & Be Merry. This is a brighter pink and you can easily put on too much, a mistake I made when I first put it on, but with a light hand it can look really nice. The highlighter is in the shade Angel Kisses. It’s a nice champagney gold and it has a nice sparkle to it, I like it a lot. 

IMG_7110

IMG_7115

The eyeshadow palette is very glamorous as well. It has diamonds and sparkles, a gold mirror with a white bear in the middle that’s wearing a pink diamond necklace, a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a sparkly grey/black bow. Under the mirror is a teal banner that says ‘Too Faced’ in black. 

IMG_7113

This palette has 12 shadows and they’re a mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters.

IMG_7114

I swatched these in the rows they’re in in the palette. The first shadow we have is Christmas Dreams and this is a light pink with a lot of silver sparkle. It looks really light in the picture, but it’s buildable. Next to that is Special Delivery and that is a matte light brown that has some light purple undertones. The last shadow in the row is All I Want, and that is a dark purple with silver, gold and purple glitter in it. 

IMG_7116

The second row starts with Silver Bells and that is a neutral glitter that is silver and brown. Next to that is Boxes And Bows and that is a matte light rosy pink. And the last shadow in the row is Lords A Leapin’ and that is an iridescent light pink that would be a great topper.

IMG_7117

The next row starts with Candy Cane and that is a hot pink shimmer that I really like. Next to that is String Of Lights and that is a dark pink glitter. And the last shadow in the row is Nutcracker, which is a matte dark brown. 

IMG_7118

The last row starts with Blue Christmas and that is a shimmery blue/green, it’s very pretty shadow. Next to that is Sex & Sleigh Bells, a black shadow with silver and blue glitter in it. And the last shadow in the row is Ice Queen which is a white/blue glitter that has various colors of glitter in it. It’s really pretty. 

IMG_7119

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have this collection or any of the others that were a part of the Too Faced Holiday Collection I’d love to know what your favorite shadows are. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Collection Vault Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post that I’m excited about. My birthday is coming up, it’s on the 18th, and to celebrate that I bought myself a few presents. One of the things I bought is something I found when scrolling through Sephora and immediately wanted and it’s the ABH Norvina Pro Pigment Collection Vault. This has all three of the mini pro pigment palettes for a very reasonable price.

IMG_7077

IMG_7078

The Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 1 packaging has very classy vibes. The bottom is black and the top is white with black arrow details and ‘ABH Norvina Collection’ written in a shiny gold. 

IMG_7079

You get 9 shadows in this palette and it comes with a good size mirror. You can see that it says ‘Norvina’ on the mirror, but you can peel that off if you want to. 

IMG_7080

This palette has the peachy/pink/purple shades from the larger palette and is a mix of mattes and metallics. 

IMG_7081

I swatched these in the rows they appear in in the palette. The first shade we have is a very bright matte peachy coral. Next to that is a light champagney gold and the last shadow in the row is a very pretty and interesting purple, which they call sugarplum and it has some pink glitter in it that’s really nice when the light hits it. 

IMG_7088

The second row starts with a bright matte pink that I would say is a hot pinky/red. Next to that is an interesting metallic, it’s a gold/pink mix and has a great shimmer to it. And the last shadow in the row is a matte magenta. 

IMG_7089

The last row has the signature Norvina purples in it. The first shadow is a matte lavender, very pretty, next to that is another matte purple that I would say is more of a violet and the last shadow in the row is a matte berry, but it’s a deep berry. 

IMG_7090

The Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 2 has very retro packaging. It’s black on the bottom and yellow on top with a mountain scene in multiple colors and ‘ABH Norvina Collection’ written in green and black. 

IMG_7082

Like the other palette, this has 9 shadows and a good size mirror. 

IMG_7083

This palette has the oranges/greens/browns from the larger palette and is a mix of mattes and metallics. 

IMG_7084

The first shadow in this palette is a bright matte yellow, I would call this a banana yellow. A lot of the yellow shadows I’ve tried in other palettes usually don’t swatch that great or need to be built up a lot on the eye, but this one swatched perfectly and I’m really impressed with the formulation. Next to that is a very bright matte lime green and the last shadow in the row is a light matte orange that they call cantaloupe, and it’s pretty spot on. I’m interested to see how this one will look on the eye. 

IMG_7091

The next row starts with a vibrant matte orange. Next to that is a light/medium metallic gold and the last shadow in the row is very pretty matte dark emerald/teal. When I had these shadows all together they reminded me very much of the 90’s Miami Dolphins uniforms and that first the vibe of this palette perfectly. 

IMG_7092

The last row is very unique and starts with a matte fuchsia that is very pretty. Next to that is a light metallic green that has gold shimmer in it, again a very unique and pretty shadow and the last shadow in the row is a matte brown, but it has some light purple undertones. 

IMG_7093

The Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 3 has super adorable packaging. It’s black on the bottom and turquoise on top with red, shiny cherries and ‘ABH Norvina Collection’ written in black. 

IMG_7085

Like the other palettes, this palette has 9 shadows and a good size mirror.  

IMG_7086

This has the blues/green/reds from the larger palette. 

IMG_7087

The first shadow in this row is a unique one, it’s a sheer white with iridescent pink and I think this would make a great topper. Next to that is an actual glitter that multidimensional that’s full of color, it’s purple, pink, gold and red. And the last shadow in the row is a metallic blue that is super pretty. It’s kind of smokey and has some bright blue shimmer. 

IMG_7094

The second row starts with a matte berry that I would say is a deep raspberry. Next to that is a unique blue, that is a matte sky blue. The last shadow in the row is a matte pink that is a light rosy pink. 

IMG_7095

The last row starts with a cherry shade and it’s a matte deep cherry. Next to that is a green that I don’t already have and it’s a very pretty matte jade green. and the last shadow in the row is another cherry, but this is a matte bright cherry. 

IMG_7096

That about wraps it up for this post, I haven’t used any of these yet and I’m super excited to because there’s some incredible colors and from what I can tell the formulation is very nice, the pigmentation is great and you get a fantastic color payoff. If you have any of these palettes I’d love to know which and what your favorite shade is. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

Sephora Birthday Gift 2021

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! My birthday is coming up, it’s in a week and a half, and to celebrate I bought myself a little gift from Sephora, which will be getting it’s own post, but along with that I got to choose one of the 2021 Sephora Birthday Gifts.

There are a few to choose from, so what I’m going to do is show you what I picked then tell you about the rest of them. So I typically pick a makeup item, unless there’s another option that I really want, but this year the makeup item was something that I immediately wanted when I saw it, and that’s a Nars Laguna set.

IMG_7064

On the top of all Sephora Birthday Gifts it says ‘Happy Birthday!’ and ‘Joyeux Anniversaire!’

IMG_7065

In this set you get a mini Laguna Bronzer and a mini Afterglow Lip Balm in Laguna. I really like the packaging on this lip balm, it’s a nice shiny bronze with Nars written in white. 

IMG_7066

The Afterglow Lip Balm is a moisturizing lip balm infused with a blend of antioxidents to protect and condition your lips. Color wise this is a shimmery bronze with gold. I did layer this up for the picture, but if you wanted just a light wash of color then one of two swipes of this would do the trick. 

IMG_7067

IMG_7070

The Laguna Bronzer is something I was really excited to see because Nars bronzers are some of my favorites. This is a nice light/medium brown with gold shimmer in it. I also really like this packaging, it’s matte black with Nars written in shiny bronze. You also get a little mirror with this, which is great because this is the perfect size to throw in your handbag. 

IMG_7068

IMG_7069

IMG_7071

The other birthday gift options are a Laneige Set that comes with a mini Lip Sleeping Mask, a mini Water Sleeping Mask and a mini Water Bank Moisture Cream. There’s a Moroccanoil Set that comes with a mini Hydrating Styling Cream, a mini Moroccanoil Treatment and a mini Night Body Serum. Something new that Sephora is doing this year is a revolving gift. This gift is available for all levels, Insider, Rouge and VIB, and each month it will be something different, but for this month the gift is a Kerastase Set that includes a mini Nutritive Shampoo and Conditioner. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I’m super happy with my choice of gift and I would love to know which gift you would choose. 

Until next time, enjoy the Sephora Birthday Gifts and you can never have too many bronzers :).

KVD Vegan Beauty Legendary Icons Review

Hi everyone,

Happy 2021! For my first post of the year, I thought it would be fun to do a review of something I picked up during at Sephora after Christmas, the KVD Vegan Beauty Legendary Icons Set.

IMG_7042

This set comes with three items, two of which are full size and one is a mini. 

IMG_7043

The first product we have is the Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Liner in Trooper. This is one of my favorite eyeliners. It has a fine tip so you can get a precise line, but you can also get a thicker line if that’s what you’re looking for. This dries down quickly, stays in place and lasts all day. 

IMG_7044

Next we have the Go Big Or Go Home Volumizing Mascara in Trooper. This is a long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that is supposed to give you extreme volume. This has a pretty decent wand on it that looks like it will coat all of your lashes. I’ve heard really good things about this mascara, so I’m excited to try it. 

IMG_7045

And the last product in this set is a mini Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. I really like the formulation of the Everlasting Liquid lipsticks. They’re light on the lips and don’t make your lips feel dry, they’re nicely pigmented and are long lasting. This shade in particular is a brown with pink undertones and the color range of these lipsticks is pretty big. 

IMG_7046

IMG_7047

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have this set let me know which product is your favorite and if not I’d love to know what your favorite KVD product is. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you have never have too many makeup sets :).

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month as been really busy, but I still managed to find a good group of favorites.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of BoxyCharm favorites, I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Boxy favorite is the Tarte Maneater mascara. I was a little but unsure about this mascara when I opened it because it has a spiky plastic brush and those tend to not be my favorite, but I really like this one. It says that the wand is custom made and it has over 500 bristles to coat every lash, and I feel like it does. The formula is nice and buildable and I haven’t experienced any clumping or transferring. Definitely recommend giving this mascara a try if you want your lashes to stand out.

IMG_6809

IMG_6810

My next beauty favorite is the Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Banana Brightening Powder. This does have a light banana scent, reminds me of the banana flavored Laffy Taffy. I really like this powder, I use it to set my foundation/concealer and brighten the under eye area. 

IMG_6811

IMG_6812

IMG_6813

And my last beauty favorite is the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. This is a super pigmented lipstick and it’s a nice deeper red, but it’s not too deep. 

IMG_6814

IMG_6815

IMG_6818

Moving on to more random things, I have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of camo leggings. I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping online and I came across these leggings. I’m of the school of thought that you can never have too many pairs of leggings and I didn’t actually have any camo ones prior to this, so I had to pick these up. They’re super comfy and they fit great. 

IMG_6899

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is my new Epiphone Les Paul Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele. Since I tuned this I’ve been playing around with it and I’m loving it. Not only is it beautiful, but it sounds incredible. I can’t wait to get an amp so I can see what it sounds like electrically. 

IMG_6923

My second music favorite is my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This has some of my favorites on it and I’ve been playing it quite a bit over the past couple weeks, it’s a great mix of music. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank everyone for reading, following, commenting and everything else. It means a lot and I always appreciate it. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great December :).

What I Got For Christmas 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way bragging, I like to watch and read these types of posts, and I find it fun to write them as well. So this year I didn’t have a real list of what I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides a bunch of my favorite candy, there were three other things. The first isn’t pictured because I already put it in my handbag, I have a little kit in my handbag that has all the essentials in it, and it was a mini deodorant. The nex thing was a Jergens Ultra Healing lotion, this has Vitamins C, E and B5 and moisturizes for 48 hours. This is one of my favorite lotions for winter, and I definitely recommend checking it out if you have dry skin or get drier skin during the winter months. And the last thing in my stocking was a Duracell 500 Lumen LED flashlight. This flashlight is stupidly bright, it has four different settings and it’s a mini so you get a great flashlight that fits in your hand and would definitely fit in your handbag if you wanted a handbag flashlight.

IMG_6960

So switching to gifts and starting with beauty, I have a couple of makeup related items. The first is the Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection. I think that the Too Faced holiday collection is great this year, everything is really pretty, but the Unbearably Glam had the colors that interested me the most. I’m not going to show too much of this because I’m going to do a whole post about it. But I will say that I really like the packaging, it’s got a nice holographic look to it and I like all the detail with the bear. This is a three piece set, so you get an eyeshadow palette, a face palette that has a blush and highlight and a mascara. I used this palette today and so far I’m impressed. 

IMG_6956

IMG_6957

The second beauty related item I didn’t take a picture of because it wasn’t in the stack with the other gifts. I think it’s in my wallet though. But it’s a Sephora gift card. There was a couple of holiday things I wanted from Sephora, but they sold out super quick, so I was given a gift card and with my birthday coming up, I’ll be putting it to good use. 

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion related items. The first is a USC shirt. I really like the style of this, I don’t have any long sleeved USC gear and it fits great. 

IMG_6961

Next we have a green/blue cropped long sleeved shirt. This has lace detail, cute buttons and it came knotted at the bottom. This is like a light sweater, it’s very soft and it’s super cute on. I tried all of these items on, but I haven’t worn any of them yet. 

IMG_6962

The second to last clothing item we have is a dark gray cropped Beatles sweatshirt. This says ‘The Beatles’ on the hood in multiple colors, as the Abbey Road album cover on the front with ‘The Beatles’ written below. This is super soft and keeps me nice and warm. 

IMG_6963

IMG_6964

The last clothing item we have is a light pink cropped sweater. This is crocheted/knitted so it has a ton of detail and it has three big buttons down the front. This is adorable on and is actually pretty warm. 

IMG_6965

Next we have some practical things. The first is a 2021 Erin Condren planner. The Erin Condren Life Planner has been an absolute game changer for me and I love it. The pattern that I went for this time is the zodiac and it’s customizable, so I went with Capricorn, because I am a Capricorn and my name is on it. It also came with a to do list pad and some gift tags. 

IMG_6958

IMG_6959

The second practical thing I got is a calendar. I have a couple of different calendars that I use for different things, but this is my main calendar. I always like a theme for calendars, so I went with a jet theme and there’s so super cool pictures. I also like that this calendar has a ‘on this day in military history’ fact for every day of the month. This is the first time I’ve seen that on a calendar and I love military history, so it’s a win-win.

IMG_6954

IMG_6955

I have two gifts that haven’t come yet, but I’m so excited about both of them. The first is actually a practical thing and it’s a pair of blue light glasses. I’ve wanted a good pair forever and recently I’ve been spending more time on my computer, so these will definitely be great to have. And the other is music related. It’s a Beatles songbook for ukulele. It has 100 songs, lyrics, chord symbols and chord diagrams. I’m always looking for ukulele sheet music for Beatles songs and online it can be hit and miss, so I can’t wait to have a legit book. 

The last thing I got for Christmas is also music related and it’s a ukulele. But not just any ukulele, this is an Epiphone Les Paul Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele in Vintage Sunburst. I pretty much haven’t been able to stop staring at this since I got it, it’s everything I thought it would be and more. I tuned it yesterday and have played around with it a little bit and it has such an incredible tone. I do want to get an amp to plug it into, so I can use it acoustically and electrically. I also want to get a strap for it, so if you guys have any recommendations for good ukulele straps let me know. 

IMG_6923

That about wraps it up for this post, I’d love to know what you guys got for Christmas.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had a great Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: My Go To Nail Polishes For Christmas

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already Day Twelve, it has absolutely flown by. Normally for the last post of Blogmas I show the festive nails I’ve done during December, but this year I didn’t really do super festive nails. I had them sparkly red for the first couple weeks and now they’re matte white. So what I’m going to do for this post is show you my go to nail polishes for Christmas.

IMG_6905

I have two dark green polishes that I like to use because they give Christmas tree vibes. The first is the Dermelect Me polish. This is a peptide infused polish that is dbp, toluene and formaldehyde free. This the darker of the two polishes. 

IMG_6906

The second green is Pure Ice 303 – Free Spirit. This is a medium green, but if you want it to be darker it builds nicely. I also like to use this for St. Patrick’s Day nails. 

IMG_6907

Next I have a couple of red polishes that the holidays wouldn’t be complete without. The first is Sinful Colors 852 – GoGo Girl. This is one of those polishes that I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it’s a classic red that I think everyone should have in their polish collection. 

IMG_6908

The other red is a sparkly polish, and it’s Pure Ice 1026 – Hit The Floor. This is a darker red, but I really like it and it gives a great sparkle to any look. 

IMG_6909

Moving on, I have a couple of silver polishes that I really like. Silver isn’t a color of polish that I wear a lot, but I do like it. The first one is the p2 Techno Chrome polish in 010 Steel Drama. I always wear this with a high shine top coat, but on it’s own it does have a great shine and it lives up to it’s chrome title. 

IMG_6910

The second silver polish is a more recent purchase, but I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it so far. It’s the Sinful Colors 923 – Queen Of Beauty. This is the perfect silver sparkle, it’s great on it’s own but it also makes a fantastic topper for any other polish. 

IMG_6911

Next we have white polish, actually the polish I have on my nails right now. The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in 110 – Hard To Get. This is a polish I use all year and it lends itself really well to shiny and matte looks. 

IMG_6912

Second to last we have a gold polish, but it’s a really interesting gold. It’s Kokie Cosmetics NP45 – Euphoria. This has some other colors in it, so when it shifts it can come across as blue/green toned. It’s very pretty. 

IMG_6913

And the last polish we have is a blue polish and it’s Salon Perfect 207 – Blue Ribbon. This is another polish I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it makes great looks for Christmas, but it’s also really nice for summer. A solid polish if you ask me. 

IMG_6914

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a go to polish or polishes for Christmas time let me know and I’d love to know what festive nails you did this year. 

Until next time, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed Blogmas, and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: 3 Recent Holiday Looks

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be showing you 3 festive looks that I’ve done during December. I already have my Christmas Day Makeup figured out, but if you don’t, hopefully this post will give you a little inspiration.

The first look I did was gold. I have quite a few gold shadows I could’ve used, but I went with a bold gold. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory and my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory. And set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I first bronzed and to do that I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlighter. This blush is a nice light/medium pink and it’s nicely buildable. And the highlighter is a nice gold with a little bit of rosiness. 

 

IMG_6885

IMG_6887

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and to do that I used the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and the first thing I did was take the matte nude shade and put it all over my lid. Then I took a light brown and put it in the crease. I then used a dark chocolaty brown and packed that on the outer corner of the eye and brought it a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied the bright gold. I then took that chocolatey brown under my eye and brought it about two-thirds of the way in and put the gold on the remaining third and in the inner corner of my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because it’s the holidays all of these looks feature red lipstick and for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to do something fun and a little bit over the top, so I went with green. For my face I used the same products as the first look with the exception of the powder. For this look I used the Ofra Cosmetics Banana Powder

For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola bronzer. For my blush and highlighter I used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo palette in Lychee.

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and I put the nude shadow all over my lids. Then I put a light brown shadow in the crease, just to have a background shade and a little bit of depth. Then I applied the shimmery emerald green all over my lid. It’s such a pretty color and translates really well from pan to eye. To mix it up a little I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and from that took Nooks & Cranberries, a matte red shade, and put that under the entirety of my eye and then put the white shimmery shade form the e.l.f. palette in the inner corner of my eye. To line my eyes I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and topped off the eyes with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I applied the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. And I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

And for the third look I wanted to do something that mixed a couple of colors so I went with a red and gold look. For my face, I used the same products that I used in the first look.

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer, Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and e.l.f. highlighter in Lychee.

For my eyes I first primed using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and took the nude shade, Cream Filling, and put it all over my eye. I then went into Nooks & Cranberries and put it in the crease lightly, then I packed it on the outer corner and the inner corner of my eye. In the middle I left a space and put Icing On Top, it’s a very pretty gold. To line my eyes I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and I topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. I applied the YSL Tatouage Couture in 5 Rosewood Gang on my lips and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Blogmas Days Nine & Ten: Christmas Village and Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Days 9 &10! I mentioned earlier in the week that I was going to be double posting this week and because today’s posts are rather short, I decided to make them one combined post.

For Day 9, I wanted to share my Christmas village with you. I’ve made a couple of upgrades and added some new pieces, so it’s even more festive than it was before. So pretty much all of the actual houses and shops are from Lowes, Home Depot or Ace Hardware and the accessories are from those places as well. The lighted blanket at the bottom is brand new this year and it’s from Amazon. I think my favorite new thing is the sleigh with Santa and the reindeer. It has multicolored lights on the side and it’s super pretty.

For Day 10, I thought it would be fun to show you guys my Christmas tree. There is as local, family owned tree farm that I get my tree from and I have for a few years. They have the absolute best trees and I always get a good one from them.

I really like the shape of this tree and it smells so good.

I’m super happy with the way it came out and it definitely made the overall feel so much more festive once all the decorations were on it. I also have a love/hate relationship with my tree skirt, it’s really pretty but the glitter comes off which I don’t love, so if you have any good tree skirt recommendations let me know. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a Christmas village I’d love to know what your favorite part of it is.

Until next time, have fun decorating and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas :).
