Recent Makeup Looks September 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be sharing some of my most recent makeup looks and showing you guys how I did them. I quite like doing this style of post, so let’s get into it.

The first look we have is from a day when it was super cold and rainy, basically it was the first really Fall feeling day we had so I just went for it. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, this has quickly become my favorite primer. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. After that I used the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and I put that under my eyes to highlight and a few other places. And I top that off with the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was go in with bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Then I used the Model Co Blush in Peach Bellini, I’m loving this shade of blush right now. And finally I used the Too Faced Dashing Through The Glow Highlighter, I’m literally using the very last of this which makes me a little sad because it’s so good but Too Faced has a couple other highlighters that I have my eye on.

SM8

For the part of this look that I really love, the eyes, the first thing I did was prime my eyes with the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. Then I went into the Colourpop She palette and the first shade I used was Duchess and I put that in the crease and brought it down just a little bit. Then I used Filly on the outer corner and brought it in about halfway on my eyelid and blended. I then took 5 Golden Rings from a Too Faced palette and mixed that with Chick. I decided to bring the whole Fall theme together by using the NYX Slide On Liner in Brown Perfection and I topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara.

For my lips I went with one of my favorite combos for nudey/brown lips and that is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. And I topped off the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

My second look is from yesterday. I got my hair done last Friday and I’m having a lot of fun with it and now that it’s much brighter I feel like my makeup is looking better so I decided to have some fun with some pink shades.

I followed the same steps as the last look, Bobbi Brown Face Base, Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me in 5, Ivory and Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.

SM4

For the rest of my face I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush and Tini Beauty Barfly Highlighter in Candlelit.

SM19

For my eyes, after using the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, I went to my Colourpop She palette and used Dear in the crease and I brought that down just a bit. Then I went in the inner corner with Madamoiselle, decided that it was too similar so I packed Missy on top of it and it ended up looking better than I thought and you could see a little of the shimmer from Madamoiselle coming through. And the I used Pearl from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette in the inner corner. Eyeliner wise I used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the look with the Benefit BADgal BANG! mascara.

I finished the look with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush and locked it all in with the e.l.f. Mist and Set Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, I’d love to know which of these looks is your favorite if you have one.

Until next time, enjoy creating different looks and playing with makeup is always fun :).

August Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my August favorites. I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have two favorites from my August Sephora Play Box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it below. The first Play favorite is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer. This is a product that you can use as a moisturizer and a primer, so I was instantly interested. I’ve used it a couple of times since getting it and I’ve used it as a primer. The first time I used it I wasn’t having the best skin day and nothing was really sitting right on my face, so I wasn’t loving it. But the times that I’ve used it since I have really liked it. It really helps to smooth your face so you have a solid base to start with and it locks in the makeup. It also has shea butter, vitamins B, C, E. It’s gluten free, vegan and is free of parabens, phthalates and sulfates SLS and SLES. I would definitely recommend giving this a try and I think it’s one of those products that’s worth the price.

AUSP2

My second Play favorite is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. I have been using this since I got it, and I can honestly say it has lived up to what I had heard about it. I put this on right before I go to bed and in the morning my skin feels really soft and it looks almost dewy and hydrated. This is a vegan collagen and it also has alguronic acid, ceramides and Mary Thistle. What it’s free of is pretty much everything, sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, phthalates and the list goes on. This cream is on the more expensive side, but I think skincare is so important, especially when you find a product that works for you and you love, so in my opinion it’s worth it.

AUSP3

And my last beauty favorite is the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker. I can’t even tell you how much I love this. I have a few of the Lippie Stix in different shades and finishes and this one is just so good. It’s a really gorgeous, really pigmented, nudey/light salmon color in a crème finish. This is really long wearing, it has vitamin E and shea butter, and the formulation is fantastic.

AUGF1

AUGF2

AUGF3

My next favorite is a food favorite and it’s kind of random. I had the opportunity recently to try pickled brussel sprouts, I love pickles and most pickled things, and brussel sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. So I thought why not, and they were so good. There was that initial pickle flavor mixed with a sweet and sour flavor and a little bit of heat because there were chili flakes in the pickling liquid.

My next favorite is actually a sunflower update. I do these frequently on my Instagram, but I thought I would do an update here. I had the first one fully open the other day and since I took this picture, more have opened up and I’m so happy about it.

AUGF4

And my last favorite is a music favorite, Joe Bonamassa’s British Blues Explosion. I’ve been a fan of Joe for a while and this is one of my favorite things he’s done. Basically it’s him paying tribute to Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. Playing their songs in his style and it’s amazing. And it’s not just the super popular songs, but it’s the deep cuts like Cream’s SWLABR from the Disraeli Gears album which was an important album for Cream and later it was the B side to Sunshine of Your Love. And I love that he chose to play those songs. I highly recommend giving this a listen if you haven’t.

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 favorites were.

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

August Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my August Play Box from Sephora, and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Your Beauty Sidekicks, meaning these are products that make you feel like you have superpowers. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a really pretty see through green with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white and says ‘Open up for pocket-sized AMAZINGNESS #SephoraPlay’ written in green.

AUSP1

The first product we have is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer. This is an oil free, antioxidant rich moisturizer that’s supposed to help protect your skin but you can also use it as a primer and in that form it’s supposed to lock in your makeup and help it to look smooth. I really like Bobbi Brown as a brand and I’m really interested to see how this works as both a moisturizer and a primer. I’ll let you guys know what I think.

AUSP2

The next product we have is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. This is a vegan collagen night cream that you put on right before you go to bed and it’s supposed to have given you smoother skin when you wake up. I’ve heard good things about this cream, so we’ll have to see how it performs.

AUSP3

Moving on we have the Ren Clean Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. They say to make this cream the last step in your routine and because it’s full of antioxidants it’s supposed to hydrate and soothe your skin all through the day. I’ve used one product from Ren before and I liked it, so I’m interested to try this.

AUSP4

Next up we have the Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum. Like other serums, you put this on before your moisturizer and this is supposed help combat dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. I don’t use products like this often but Sunday Riley makes some amazing skincare and I’ll give it a go and see how my skin likes it. And don’t forget, if you’re going to use a retinol serum make sure to wear sunscreen the next day, protect your face.

AUSP5

The second to last product we have is the Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss in Hot Toddy. I’ve used a few of these in various colors and they all plump your lips nicely, make them feel moisturized, they smell good and you get a nice color payoff. This one in particular is a really pretty warm nude. The only thing that I don’t love about these is I find them to be a little too sticky.

AUSP6

AUSP7

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter. This is a leave in cream for medium to thick hair and you apply it to your damp hair before styling and it is supposed to smooth and protect. I have a lot of hair and seeing it start to frizz, even a little, after styling it can be annoying. So I’m really interested to try this out.

AUSP8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August Play 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 next month :).
