Happy 2022! I hope you all had a great holiday season enjoyed your break. I definitely enjoyed mine, but I’m excited to be back. For my first post of the year I thought it would be fun to do a review of one of the makeup items I got for Christmas and that is the Too Faced Christmas In London limited edition makeup collection.
Because this is a London themed collection, the outside of the palette has a London winter scene. A classic London taxi, Big Ben in the center with a bow on it, the London Eye in the background and two buildings. One has the Union Jack on the top with people having a Christmas party inside and the other has a chimney sweep on top and inside it’s more chill. Of course Santa and the reindeer can be seen flying across the top. In addition to the palette, you get a mini mascara.
The mini mascara you get is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. This is a holy grail product for a lot of people, myself included. The formula is great, it doesn’t clump, flake or transfer. The brush grabs all of your lashes and it gives you the perfect amount of volume and length. This is always a mascara I recommend.
The palette itself is interesting and I say that because in it you get 4 different blushes and 20 eyeshadows. This palette is also scented, it says it smells like English Toffee, which I don’t quite get, but it does have a pleasant sweetness to it.
The top of the palette looks very similar to the outside with the exception of the London taxi.
With the blushes and the eyeshadows there’s a mix of finishes, you have mattes and shimmers, as well as a good range of colors. The pan size of the blushes is pretty good and while the eyeshadow pans are smaller, it doesn’t seem like they’re small when you’re dipping into them.
Starting with the blushes, the first shade we have is The People’s Princess, which is a medium shimmery pink. Then we have Pretty & Punk, which is a more true pink. Next to that is Carnaby Sweet, a peachy/orange shade. I mixed Carnaby Sweet and Pretty & Punk together when I was testing the palette and it created a very pretty color. And the last blush we have is Spice Girl, which is a darker pink. And since we’re on the subject, I’d love to know who our favorite Spice Girl is because at one point we all had one.
Moving on to the shadows, I swatched these in the rows they appear in in the palette. The first shadow we have is Chrimbo Vibes, which is a very light white/nude shadow. Next to that is Christmas Queen, a light/medium matte brown. Then there’s Figgy Pudding, a pinky/purple shimmer with pink undertones and pink/purple/white flecks in it. And the last shadow in the row is Tea At The Ritz and that is a matte chocolatey brown.
The second row starts with You Can’t Hyde, a matte mauve shade, that I did build up a bit in the swatch, and I do really like. Next to that is Tower Of Lovin’, a matte peachy/nude shade. Then there’s Saville Bow, a matte lilac and the last shadow in the row is Butter My Biscuit, a super pretty gold shimmer.
The third row starts with Too Faced At Carnaby, this is probably one of my favorite shadows in this palette, it’s a light pink shimmer. So pretty. Next to that is Piccadilly Thrilly, a matte, dark rosy pink. Then there’s Boxing Day, a rose gold shimmer. And the last shadow in the row is Mulled Wine, which is that shimmery maroon with the gold shift that was in so many palettes in 2021.
The fourth, and second to last row, starts with Abbey Snowed, a matte nude. Next to that is Baking In The Tent, shoutout to my fellow GBBO lovers, which is a a matte similar to Christmas Queen, but a shade or two deeper. Then there’s Press For Champagne, a shimmery white with a purple shift that would be perfect as a topper or for highlighting under the brows or in the inner corner of the eye. And the last shadow in the row is Father Christmas, which is a shimmery copper.
The last and fifth row of this palette starts with Christmas In The Cotswold, which is a light matte brown. Next to that is London, Actually which is a lighter gold shimmer. Next to that is Last Christmas, a super pretty green shimmer that I can’t wait to try because it just seems like one of those shadows that’s going to be gorgeous on. And the last shadow in the row is Spotted Dick and that is a matte, super deep chocolate brown.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any new makeup for Christmas I’d love to know what you got. I will be doing a ‘Three Recent Looks’ with this palette, I might do two, one with the neutrals and one with the other colors. So look out for that.
Until next time, enjoy creating different looks, you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes and here’s to a great 2022 :).
Over the weekend I received my September BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is BTS aka Behind The Scenes, so this box is full of items to get you ready for your close up.
The first product we have is my Choice item for this month, the GlamGlow Youth Mud Stimulating & Exfoliating Treatment Mask. This mask uses volcanic pumice rock to exfoliate, smooth the appearance of fine lines and softens the skins texture. It has natural clays that lift any impurities you may have without messing with the skins essential oils. It also has antioxidants from green tea that give the skin a glowing and youthful look. This is GlamGlow’s OG mask that started it all and for whatever reason I hadn’t tried it yet so when I saw that it was a Choice option I knew I had to get it. I’ve heard great things about this mask, so I’m excited to try it out.
The next product we have is the Elemis Superfood AHA Glow Cleansing Butter. This cleansing butter has fermented pumpkin enzymes and Acerola Cherry, which are rich in AHAs, that help to brighten the skin along with mango butter and chia seed oil which nourish and hydrate the skin. Elemis is one of the better skincare brands, I’ve tried a few of their products in the past and liked them a lot. I don’t use a lot of cleansing butters, but I’m interested to try this out.
Moving on we have the Pinky Rose Cosmetics Multi Use Makeup Base Sticks. This is the Duo Hip Hop and Jazz set. This is kind of a cool deal, the Hip Hop side of this is a cream primer stick that you can use as an eyeshadow primer, or whatever you see fit. The Jazz side is a cream eyeshadow stick that is a really pretty bronzy/copper that has some shine to it. I like it a lot, especially for this time of year. And of course you can use these together or separately.
The second to last product we have is the Give Them Lala Beauty Mascara. This brand is from Lala Kent who gained popularity on the Bravo show Vanderpump Rules and is fairly new. I went and checked out the website and it has this mascara listed as ‘Lala’s Everyday Mascara’. This mascara says it will give you fuller and more dramatic looking lashes without clumping, flaking or smudging. This has a silicone brush with short bristles that says it will elongate, plump and separate your lashes. I do love a good mascara so I’ll give this a try, but my one complaint is with the packaging. On the handle it has this nice marble pattern but that isn’t carried down onto the rest of the tube so it looks a little bit incomplete and mismatched.
And the last product we have is the Half Caked Best Friends Forever – In Bloom + Duo Fiber Brush Set. This is a blush and brush set that includes the Half Caked 813 Duo Fiber Brush, 100% synthetic, which has a light lavender handle while the brush itself is a tan shade on the bottom with a brown line in the middle and white fibers on top. It did get a little smashed in the box but it’s decently soft and seems like it will be a good brush for blush and it’s supposed to give you an airbrushed finish. And speaking of blush, the In Bloom blush you get with this set is in the shade Freshly Squeezed. This blush has a matte finish and was created with sensitive skin in mind, so it’s fragrance free. This shade, Freshly Squeezed is a little more out there than I would typically go with a blush, I think it’s a little dark for me, but from the swatch I can tell you it’s incredibly pigmented and seems to blend out nicely.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your September BoxyCharm 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 October box :).
Today I thought it would be fun to share with you what I bought during the BoxyCharm January Add-On sale. I usually pick up one or two things depending on what’s available and in January I found something I really wanted to try out.
This palette is magnetic and when you pop it open it says, ‘Smile, you are beautiful.’
This is a full face palette, so you get six eyeshadows, a blush, a bronzer and a highlighter. The pans are magnetic, so you can easily pop them out and switch them around/replace them.
Starting with the eyeshadows, you get six and there is mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics. The first shadow we have is Clean Slate and that is a nice peachy shimmer. Next to that is Reset, a matte orange that has some brown in it. Then there’s Fresh, which is a gorgeous metallic mint green. Next to that is Ready, a matte red that has some orange in it. Then there’s Ambition, which is a metallic brown with some gold shimmer in it and the last shadow is Goals, which is a metallic rust/coppery shade.
Moving on, there is one blush and one bronzer. The bronzer is in the shade Current, and it’s a nice light/medium brown that appears to be buildable. The blush is in the shade Intentions and it’s a slightly deeper pink.
The highlighter is the main focus of the palette, and it’s Ofra’s best selling highlighter, All of the Lights. This has four different shades in it and you could use them individually, but when you blend them together it creates a gorgeous champagney/gold that has a ton of depth.
That about wraps it up for this post, I’m really excited to use this palette. The eyeshadows seem really nice, the formulation and pigmentation, from the swatches, seems like it’s really great. If any of you guys have this palette, I’d love to know what you think of it.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many face palettes :).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This palette has 12 shadows and they’re a mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 :).
Recently e.l.f. brought out a new product in the form of their Bite Size Face Duos. These are very similar to the Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, but for your face. A little info on the Face Duos; there are 8 colors to choose from, they come in blush and highlighter or bronzer and highlighter, there is a mix of shimmer and matte shades, the colors in each duo compliment each other and the shade range is pretty big for only having 8 palettes. And one of these will run you $3.00.
This is what each palette looks like and for being bite size the pan size is decent.
I bought one just to see how I liked it and I got mine in the shade Lychee.
I really like this shade for blush, it’s a lightish pink and I’ve found that it’s very buildable. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn an e.l.f. blush and this one is very smooth and nicely pigmented. Initially I wasn’t sure what to think about the highlighter because this is my first experience with an e.l.f highlighter, but I do like it. This one is in a nice lighter gold that has a little bit of rosiness to it. It’s not the most pigmented highlighter ever, but it does build nicely and it’s very pretty when the light hits it.
I know that I won’t buy all of the other shades because I won’t use them, but I’ll buy at least one or two more. If you’re wanting a new face palette in general or you’re looking for one to pop in your handbag, I would recommend these.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve purchased one of these let me know which and if you haven’t but are going to I’d love to know which one.
Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many face palettes :).
I received my August BoxyCharm box yesterday and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Boxy Glamping, which is a great theme as for the late summer months.
So the first product we have is my choice item for the month, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Purifying Cleanser. This is a cleanser that removes your makeup, residue and any dead skin you may have while also getting rid of sebum and decongesting your pores. This says it will leave your skin feeling mattified and fresh but it won’t dry it out. This is a product I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so I’m excited to try it and I’ll let you guys know what I think.
The next product we have is the Minetan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula that works in a time release fashion so you get layers of hydration as you sleep. This is supposed to instantly absorb when you put it on and will not only leave your skin super hydrated but super glowy when you wake up. I really like the idea of this, so I’m interested to try it out and see how I like it.
Moving on we have the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. This primer says it will enhance your eyeshadow and keep it locked in from day to night so you don’t have to worry, dries quickly and transparent. It’s also cruelty free. I love a good eye primer and I do have a couple of favorites, so I’m interested to see how this one compares.
The second to last product we have is the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set. This is a mini set of Trestique’s best selling shades of highlight stick, blush stick, eyeshadow crayon and brow pencil. The highlighter is in the shade Maldives Luminescent and it’s an absolutely gorgeous champagney shade with just the right amount of shimmer and a great glow when it hits the light. I was looking to buy another highlighter in a shade like this, so this is perfect. The blush is in the shade Moroccan Rose. It’s a nice rosey shade that leans towards the natural side and appears to be very buildable. I don’t usually like blush sticks, but I’ll try this one out and see how I feel. The eyeshadow crayon is in the shade Tahitian Shimmer and it’s a unique shadow. It does have a nice amount of shimmer and went on really creamy. It’s a mix of a brown/gold/bronze. It’s a very pretty shadow. And the brown pencil is in the shadow Americano. It’s a nice medium brown in a warmer tone. I like the triangle shape of the pencil and how you can get in there and be precise.
And the last product we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvety finish. In tone this is a deeper red, but you can tell it has berry undertones. It has shea butter to condition and nourish your lips so they feel hydrated for hours after application. Based on the swatch I can tell this is super pigmented and it felt really light on my hand so I assume it will feel light on the lips. This also has one of those cushion applicators, and I don’t have a lot of lip products with that style of applicator so hopefully it applies as well as others.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August BoxyCharm 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 September box :).
As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be a good time to do my May favorites. I tried quite a few new things this month, so I have a good mix. That being said, let’s get into it.
Starting with beauty, I started BoxyCharm and because I subscribed at the very end of April I got my April box in May along with my May box, meaning I have favorites from both. I will of course link both of those posts down below if you haven’t read them. The first is the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. My go to eyeshadow primer is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but this one is now up there as a go to. It’s on the thicker side and has a fade proof and crease proof translucent finish that really does make my shadow last all day and brings out the vibrance.
My second beauty favorite is the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This has hyaluronic acid and algae extract for smoothness, to seal in moisture and help in reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This has quickly become a favorite of mine. I’ve been using this since I got it and I do feel like I can see a difference. I’ve used a few different Murad products and they’re honestly all great. I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a new eye cream.
My second to last BoxyCharm favorite is the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. In this palette you get three blushes, hence blush trio, but you have Seclusion which is an orangey/peach shade, Isla which is a coral and Toasted, a rosey pink. These blushes are all very pretty. They’re buildable, blend out nicely and are quite pigmented without being too much.
My last BoxyCharm favorite is the Vintage By Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha. This is honestly a great lip pencil. It’s in a really nice medium brown that goes super well with most of my current nudey/brown lipsticks. I’ve also worn this on it’s own all over my lips, it goes on really smooth and has great staying power.
And my last, non Boxy favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size eyeshadow palette in Truffles. This palette is a mix of darker neutrals, browns and blacks. There is a lot of versatility in this palette and I’ve worn it a few times since talking about it. I also ordered the rest of the Bite Size palettes I was missing and got them yesterday, so look for part four of the Bite Size series soon.
Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Popcorn. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are one of my favorite snacks and I love popcorn, so when I saw these I was intrigued. These don’t have as much of that vinegar pop that you get with the Cheetos, but they have a good heat and will leave your fingers that bright red-orange.
And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the 20th Anniversary Edition of B.B. King and Eric Clapton’s Riding With The King album. This comes out on June 26th, but it’s available for pre-order now on CD, 2 LP and Digital. Along with being remastered, this album has also been expanded. So you get two unreleased tracks, Rollin’ and Tumblin’ and Let Me Love You Baby. I have the original CD, but I’ve pre-ordered this. Rollin’ and Tumblin’ has been released on Spotify and I think it’s great. Eric has done a few versions of this song over the years and this one fits in perfectly with the rest of the album and I’m glad they decided to add it in now.
That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your May favorites were.
Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great May :).
Today I have something that I’m really excited about, the start of a new series, and that’s monthly BoxyCharm unboxings. I’ve wanted to do BoxyCharm for a while and after the end of Sephora Play, I subscribed. For those who don’t know, BoxyCharm is a $25.00 a month beauty subscription box and in each box you get 5 full size products. There are upgrades you can do and different boxes you can get, but this is the standard box.
I subscribed at the end of April, so my first box is the April box. When I was going through and setting my preferences, I selected a makeup heavy box with a little bit of skincare, and this box is exactly that.
The first product we have is the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This cream has algae extract and hyaluronic acid so it’s supposed to restore smoothness, seal in moisture and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve tried a few different Murad products before and really liked them but I’ve never tried any of their eye creams, so I’m excited to try this out and I’ll let you know what I think.
Next we have the Ciate London Eye Lustre Creme Eyshadow in Cupid. This is a lightweight shadow with color shifting pigments that is supposed to be fall out free. This is honestly one of the prettiest shadows I’ve owned. When you look at it in the tube it’s a really pretty purpley/pink, but when it hits the light it shifts to gold. I’m honestly excited to wear this.
Moving on we have the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. As this is a blush trio, you get 3 blushes. The first blush is Seclusion, which is a peachy/orange, then there’s Isla, which is a coral shade and Toasted, which is a rosey pink. I’m wearing Isla today and it’s quite pretty. These blushes have a good amount of pigmentation without being over the top and they blend out nicely.
The second to last product we have is the Vintage By Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha. This is a nice medium brown and it goes on really smooth. I’m wearing it today all over my lips with and I really like the way it looks and how long it wears. About halfway through today I put a Too Faced gloss on top and I still really like how it’s looking. This is a lip pencil I would recommend.
And the last product we have is the Steve Laurant Lip Gloss in Posh. This is a lightweight, high shine lip gloss with opacity but also gives a great color payoff. When I swatched this it came off as an orangey/brown and my first thought was that it would probably look good with the Vintage Cosmetics lip pencil. I don’t always reach for a gloss when I’m doing my lips, but I’ll give this one a try and see what I think.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your April BoxyCharm 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 May BoxyCharm box :).
Today I thought it would be fun to share with you the makeup look that I did for Easter and how I did it. For this look I wanted something fun with pastels and I’m really happy with the way it came out.
So the first thing I did for this look was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This gives a great subtle glow under foundation. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory. Next I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and a few other places I wanted more coverage. And I topped that off with the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It translucent setting powder.
For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and used the Too Faced Extra Toasty, this is a lighter brown and it has a nice amount of pigment and it blends really nicely. I then used the Model Co blush in Peach Bellini, this has a little bit of shimmer and shine and isn’t too pink and I highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is such a beautiful highlighter, it’s the perfect shade and it has a great pop when the light hits it without it being over the top. This is probably my favorite drugstore highlighter.
For my eyes I didn’t have a real plan going into it but a few shadows stood out and I went for it. The first thing I did though was prime them with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and put Fresh all over my lid as a base. Next I used Bloom, which is a matte pinky coral, from the Sultry palette and packed that into the crease and blended. From there I went into the big palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party and packed That’s My Jam, a berry toned purple, on the outer corner of my eye and a little bit into the crease to meet Bloom. On my lid I used I Love Yule, a really pretty pink with gold sparkles and I lightly dabbed Tinsel Town, an icy and sparkly purple/white, on top to bring all the colors together. Eyeliner wise I used and KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. On my lips I applied a Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Queen B, a very pretty mauvey purple and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
That about wraps it up for this post, I always love doing posts like this so look out for more in the future and I’d love to know what your Easter makeup look was.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many sparkly eyeshadows :).
Today I thought it would be fun to talk about four makeup looks that I did this month that I had a lot of fun with. I was noticing that I have quite a few different green eyeshadows throughout different palettes, so during the week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day I did different looks using them and I’m really pleased with how they all turned out.
The first look we have is very simple. The first thing I did was prime my face using the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer, I’ve been using this primer for a while and I really like it. First Aid Beauty has a great range of products and all the ones I’ve tried have been great. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. Then I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and anywhere else I wanted more coverage. I topped that off with the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent setting powder.
For the rest of my face I used one of my favorite bronzers, the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna. This is a nice lighter brown that’s really blendable and has a nice shimmer to it. Then I went in with a Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is one of my all time favorite highlighters, it’s a beautiful rose gold that really pops when the light hits it without being too over the top.
For my eyes I started off by covering them with a little concealer and then I went in with my eyeliner. I used the Lord & Berry Velluto eye pencil in 1808, Supreme Green. This is a deep green that is really pigmented and goes on nice and smooth. I topped that with the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, applied Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker, this is a gorgeous peachy/nude in a creme finish and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
The next look is one that I found while scrolling through Pinterest and thought it would be really fun to try and recreate and I’m super happy with how it turned out.
For this look I started with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is something you can wear on it’s own, under foundation or you can use as a highlighter but I like it the best under foundation and it gives a nice subtle glow. I followed that with my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and I set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder. You get a nice smooth finish with this powder and it smells like peaches.
For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, this too is a nice lighter brown that blends really nicely. Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
The eye look is where it gets fun. To start I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, then I went into the big palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Collection and the first shadow I applied is Cream Filling, I used this as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to Oh Snap! And did that in the crease and a little bit on the outer corner of the eye. I wanted something with some sparkle that wasn’t too crazy so I went in to Icing On Top for my eyelid. It’s a gorgeous light rose gold. Then to bring in the green I went to the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette and put the deep sparkly green under my eye and for a little bit of pop I put a tiny bit of sparkly silver in the inner corner. Eyeliner wise I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion and I topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lips I used the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, which is a great nude liner, and the Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
The second to last look I did is one that I do more often than any of the others and I think it’s a fun look.
To start I primed my face with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. Then I used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder.
For the rest of my face I went in first with the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, then with the Too Faced Daydreamer blush. This blush is a light/medium pink, it’s really pretty on and very buildable. Then I used the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
For my eyes I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer then used the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette and the first shadow I used is a really light peachy/nude and I used that as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to a deep matte green and put that lightly in the crease and more heavily on the outer corner of the eye. And I used the sparkly silver on the lid. I applied the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes with the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara, this does fantastic things for your lashes. I used the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede on my lips and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
And the last look I did was for St. Patrick’s Day. I had a lot of fun with this one and it looked even brighter in person than in the photo.
I started this one with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow then used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.
For the rest of my face I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
For my eyes after applying the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I used that really light peachy/nude shadow from the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette as a base, then I went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette in Hot Jalapeno and I used every shade. I first used that light matte green and put that in the crease. Then I used the dark matte green and put that a little bit in the crease but mostly on the outer corner of the eye. I put the bright sparkly gold on the lid and dabbed the light sparkly green on top of that. It made a really fun color mix. I used the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the eyes with the Benefit BAD gal BANG! mascara. For my lips I applied the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and the KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing these posts so look out for more in the future.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many green eyeshadows :).
