April Favorites

Hi everyone,

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

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow in Champagne Rich. This is a lightweight, non sticky luminizer for face and body. This says it has a transfer proof formula and it appears to be very buildable, so you could build it up for your desired glow. Based on the swatch and the little test I did, it’s super pretty and definitely something I’m going to be using a lot during the summer months.

My last Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Ayana palette. This is a 5 pan, cool toned palette made exclusively for BoxyCharm and it has 3 mattes and 2 shimmers. 

 

I’ve done one look with this palette since I’ve had it and I think this palette is a classic example of how great ND shadows are. The formulation is great, the mattes are smooth and blend out nicely, the shimmers are creamy and everything is really pigmented. If you’re looking to try out Natasha Denona shadows and don’t want to commit to one of the larger palettes, I definitely recommend the smaller 5 pan palettes. 

And my last beauty favorite is the ColourPop Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit. I did a whole post about these, so I’ll link that below as well. I really like this kit. I like the range of colors, they’re super long lasting and they’re comfortable to put in the waterline. If you’re looking for a set of spring colored eyeliners, I definitely recommend this one. 

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Popcorners chips. These are triangle shaped popcorn chips and they’re delicious. They have a few flavors but I’ve tried the Sea Salt and Kettle Corn and I would recommend both. What I like about these is they’re light and a lot less messy than eating from a bowl of popcorn. Definitely a great snack. 

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. I’ve been doing a little bit of online shopping recently with a focus on things for spring and summer, and so far I’ve picked up some really cute pieces. The first is a white tank top from Macy’s. I like this because the material is lightweight, but it’s not totally see through. It has a thicker strap, a scoop neck, a cute little pocket on the left side and it ties at the bottom. 

My second fashion favorite is a dress from Nordstrom. I’m always trying to add more spring and summer dresses to my wardrobe and when I came across this one I thought it was super cute. It’s coral with a white floral print, spaghetti straps, a ruffle at the top and a ruffled bottom. Once I wear it I’ll post pictures on my social media. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite and this time it’s a song. So a little bit of background, the US Navy Blue Angels just started their 2021 show season and the airshow they were at did a live stream of the whole weekend, and one of the things that I’m always interested in is the music they pick for the show and how the songs go with each maneuver. I think that they have a pretty good song list, some I like more than others, and I know that it might change as the season goes on. But there were a few songs in particular that stuck out to me and one of them is American Style by Old Dominion. Not only do I think this is a really fun song, but they use it towards the end of the show when they’re in the Delta and I think it’s super fitting. Definitely a song I would recommend listening to if you haven’t. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were. 

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

ColourPop Limoncello Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another ColourPop review, this time of the Limoncello palette. This is the third in a series of the three ColourPop posts that I mentioned I would be doing. This is a palette I’m really excited about, so let’s get into it.

So this palette is inspired by Spring days and freshly squeezed lemons and you really get that vibe from the outside of the palette. It has a blue and white background with lemons on branches, cut in half and ‘Limoncello’ written in the middle in gold.

IMG_7974

You get a good size mirror with this palette and it has a yellow boarder with a cut in half lemon in front of blooming lemons in the bottom right corner. 

IMG_7975

This is a 12 pan palette that has mattes and metallics. There is a color range of oranges, yellows, blues, greens and neutrals. Just looking at it, it looks like a really versatile palette. 

IMG_7976

The first shadow we have is Tuscan Fun, a matte medium brown. Next to that is Fly Girl, a metallic orange. Then there’s Easy Peasy, which is a metallic brownish shadow with green undertones and the last shadow in the row is Limone Squeezy, which is a warm matte ginger. 

IMG_7977

The second row starts with Touring, a really pretty metallic champagne. Next to that is Amalfi, which is a matte yellow and I would describe it as a dandelion/canary yellow. Then there’s Serenade, a metallic lemon, but it’s what I would call a pale lemon and the last shadow in the row is Capri, which is a metallic lime green but it’s a deep lime green. 

IMG_7978

The last row is all about the mattes and the first shadow is The Grotto which is a very unique shadow. I would say it’s a deep terracotta. Next to that is Semifreddo, a matte light brown. Then there’s Vespa, which is a really dark brown. I would say it’s a charcoal brown and the last shadow in the row is La Festa, which is a matte demin blue. 

IMG_7979

That about wraps it up for this post, I really like this palette so far, the metallics are really creamy, the mattes all swatched really smooth and everything seems to be very pigmented. If you have purchased this palette I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. 

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

ColourPop Lizzie McGuire What Dreams Are Made Of Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a review that I’m really excited about and it’s going to be of the new ColourPop What Dreams Are Made Of Palette from their Lizzie McGuire Collection. I, like many people, was excited when I saw the launch of the Lizzie McGuire Collection because it’s not only super cute, but there’s so much nostalgia.

I really like the direction they went in for the outside of this palette, it’s tie dye with pink flowers, ‘What Dreams Are Made Of’ written in white and outlined in yellow and there’s a cartoon Lizzie in the bottom right corner.

IMG_7930

There’s a decent size mirror in this palette. In the upper left corner there’s some multicolored flowers and in the bottom right corner there’s cartoon Lizzie holding some flowers. 

IMG_7931

This is a 12 pan palette and there’s a pretty good shade range. Plus the shadows all have great names. Normally I’d wait until I had talked about a palette before using it, but I couldn’t resist with this one and I used it before I did my swatches. 

IMG_7932

So the first shadow we have is Buh-Bye! which is a really pretty metallic light gold. Next to that is Puh-Lease, an orangey/peach glitter, then there’s Done And Done, a matte peach that has some brown in it, it’s almost a peachy/beige. And the last shadow in the row is Outfit Rememberer which is a metallic pastel pink, but it has a lavender glitter in it. I’m wearing it right now and it’s so pretty. 

IMG_7933

The first shadow in the second row is Dear Diary, which is a really pretty and unique metallic yellow/green. Next to that is Outie! which is very pretty and it’s a metallic coral with a gold duo chrome effect. Then there’s Uggghhh! (I love the amount of g’s and h’s they used), and this is a matte pink, I would call it a bubblegum pink. And the last shadow in the row is Hello Fabulous and this is a metallic lavender with silver glitter in it. 

IMG_7934

The first shadow in the last row is Don’t Freak, which a matte lime green. Next to that is Soo Mature, which is a sparkly matte coral but it has a pink undertone and hot pink and silver in it. Then there’s Outfit Repeater, (one of my favorite quotes from Lizzie McGuire is “I might be an outfit repeater, but you’re an outfit rememberer, which is just as pathetic” so it makes me so happy they used these both as shade names), but the shadow is sparkly matte fuchsia with hot pink and silver sparkles and the last shadow in the row is Digital Bean, which is a gorgeous shadow, it’s a matte violet but it has pink undertones. 

IMG_7935

That about wraps it up for this post, if you picked up this palette I’d love to know what your favorite shadow or shadows are, and what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. I definitely think this is going to be a palette I do a 3 recent looks post, with. 

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

ColourPop Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun unboxing post. Recently I placed a ColourPop order and when it came I decided that each item would get it’s own post. So today I’m going to be doing the first of three posts.

One thing I haven’t tried from ColourPop is their eyeliner and I really wanted some fun liners for spring, and I came across the Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit. This has six liners in it in a range of spring colors.

IMG_7844

IMG_7845

Starting at the top we have Exit, which is a pure white liner. I have a few looks in mind for a couple of these liners, this one included, but it’s going to be fun to create new and fun looks with all of them. 

IMG_7846

IMG_7853

Next we have Extra Frosting, which is what I would call a butter yellow. 

IMG_7847

IMG_7855

Then we have Peach Fuzz, which is as it says on the tin, a peach shade. 

IMG_7848

IMG_7856

The next liner we have is Ice Breaker. This is a shade I like a lot and it’s a really pretty mint shade. 

IMG_7849

IMG_7857

IMG_7851

IMG_7858

And the last liner we have is Amethyst Hour, a really pretty lilac shade. 

IMG_7852

IMG_7859

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have any of these liners I’d love to know which and what looks you’ve done with it/them. You can buy these liners individually if you don’t want the entire kit and they’re $7.00. 

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

Three Recent Looks, Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite type of posts, a three recent looks. And today we’re focusing on looks I did with the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Palette. This palette is really bright and fun, so I’ve a lot of fun creating with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did with the palette and I wanted to use the brightest shades to see how they would perform. I will admit that I did something that I shouldn’t have when creating this look and I almost went back to recreate it in a better way, but I didn’t. If I do this look again though I will make some changes. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I went in with my 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 and I set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach.

IMG_6505

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using my Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then used the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold

IMG_6507

IMG_6513

For my eyes, the first thing I did prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Ay Que Cute, a matte light pink that has slight rosy undertones and I put that in the crease. Then I applied Ponte Hyper, a matte hot pink/fuchsia to the outer corner and I brought it up a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied Guao, a darker purple metallic. I brought a little bit of Ponte Hyper under my eye and put just a dab of Guao in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper, then applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. After I saw the eye look I decided to go full on 80’s Barbie, so for my lips I first lined them with the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09 Fuchsia and on top of that used the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Glam Bag. I set the entire look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray

IMG_6508

IMG_6515

IMG_6372

For the second look I wanted to use the more neutral shades in the palette and I ended up with the perfect fall look. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory. Used my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper. 

IMG_6506

For the rest of my face I first bronzed with the Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I applied the blush and highlighter from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee

IMG_6509

IMG_6516

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later primer. The first shadow I applied was Jajaja, a matte light-medium brown and I used just the tiniest bit in the crease. Then I applied Muy Excited, a matte burnt orange that has some brown undertones. I put that on the outer corner of my eye and brought it up a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I used Pero Like, a peachy/orange metallic with some gold glitter. I brought a little bit of Muy Excited under my eye and put Pero Like in the inner corner of the my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and applied the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because this was a fall look I wanted to go with a brown lip, so I first lined my lips with the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02, Nothin’ But Nude and on top of that put the Too Faced Peach Kiss Comfort Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_6510

IMG_6517

IMG_6388

The third look I did is basically a “more wearable” version of the first look I did. So the first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper. 

IMG_6505

For the rest of my face I first applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. Then I applied the Model Co Peach Bellini blush and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. 

IMG_6511

IMG_6518

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later primer. Then I went into Ay Que Cute and put that in the crease. On top of that I put a tiny amount of Ponte Hyper, just to deepen it up a little. For the rest of my eye I applied Eres Un Show, a lavender metallic. I brought a little bit of Ay Que Cute and Ponte Hyper under my eye and put Eres Un Show in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and applied the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara. For my lips I first lined them with the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09 Fuchsia and on top of that used the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let’s Go Crazy. And I set the whole look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

IMG_6512

IMG_6519

IMG_6400

That about wraps it up for this post, I have another one of these posts planned for November, so be on the lookout for that. If any of you have this palette let me know what you think of it and what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. 

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

Four Green Makeup Looks Of March 2020

Hi everyone,

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.

IMG_5286

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.

IMG_5287

IMG_5288

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.

IMG_5289

IMG_5290

IMG_5227

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.

IMG_5291

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.

IMG_5292

IMG_5293

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.

IMG_5297

IMG_5328

IMG_5249 (1)

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.

IMG_5299

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.

IMG_5294

IMG_5295

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.

IMG_5300

IMG_5301

IMG_5261

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.

IMG_5302

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.

IMG_5292

IMG_5293

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.

IMG_5303

IMG_5304

IMG_5278

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 :).

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.

SM4

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.

SM5

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.

SM6

SM9

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.

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 :).

Recent Makeup Look: Purple Smokey Eye

Hi everyone,

Recently I did a makeup look that I hadn’t done before, a purple smokey eye, and I thought it would be fun to walk through it with you guys and show you what I used because it was a lot of fun and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

So the first thing I did is prime my face using the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve been using this for a while and I really like it, it helps to wake up your face and it gives you a really nice base to work with.

JUSP3

Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205 Ivory. From there I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory to highlight under my eyes and a few other places. To top all that off I used the Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent. This is probably my favorite powder, but the Laura Mercier Setting Powder is a close second. And I put this all over the face as well as doing some baking under the eyes.

RML1

For the rest of my face the first thing I did is bronze using the Benefit Hoola bronzer. I’ve used Hoola on and off for a while and it always has a place in my makeup bag, it’s so good and it gives you such a nice color. Then I used the Model Co Peach Bellini blush. This blush is really pretty, it has a nice shimmer and it’s buildable. And for my highlight I used the Tini Beauty Barfly Highlighter in Candlelit. This is one of my favorite highlighters, it’s a really pretty pink and when the light hits it you get a really pretty glow.

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

AGSP2

Then I went in with the Too Faced I Believe In Pink palette. I’ve used one or two colors from this palette but haven’t really played with it too much. The first color I used was Spoiled Rotten and I put that in the crease and down on the eyelid but not all the way down. Then I used Wish For It on the outer edge and brought that in about halfway on the lid and blended. I then took Pink Christmas and put it in the inner corner and out to where Wish For It was and blended lightly where those two shadows met. Because I wanted a little more of a shimmer, I took Pearl from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and put a bit of that on top of Pink Christmas. As for eyeliner, I used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Benefit BAD gal BANG! mascara was next and lipstick wise I used the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker. I love the Colourpop Lippie Stix, this one is a gorgeous peachy shade, super pigmented and the formula is fantastic. And I topped it off with the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing this style of post so definitely look out for more in the future.

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

Three Recent Makeup Looks, Summer 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite styles of post and that’s showing you guys three of my recent makeup looks and how I achieved them. These range from May to July and are looks that I had a lot of fun with. There are a few things I want to mention quickly, when I was taking the pictures there were a few things that I forgot to include. For every look I used the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer and the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. And I finished the first and third look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and I finished the second look with the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50, I used that because I was outside all day, it was sunny, and I wanted a little SPF. With that being said, let’s get into it.

So the first look is from May, there was a stretch of a week or so where the weather was amazing and I wanted a fun glowy look to match. So for my face, once I primed, I went in with my foundation which is the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory. Then I used the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory to highlight under my eyes and a few other places. I’ve been using 5 and 10 together but my skin has been so good recently I’ve been using one or the other. And to top that off I used the Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent. I put it all over my face, but I always pack a little extra under my eyes to do a little baking.

RML1

For the rest of my face, the first thing I used is my current favorite bronzer, the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna. This is so pretty and when it hits the light it has a beautiful glow. Then I used the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose Gold blush. This is a blush I like a lot because it’s the perfect pinky/peachy shade for any time of year and it has a rose gold sparkle to it. And I finished it off with the Too Faced Dashing Through The Glow highlighter. This is from the Super Fun Night palette and there’s not that much of it left. It’s a really nice champagne shade and it blends really nicely. I’m in the market for new highlighters so let me know the ones that you guys are loving.

RML2

RML3

Moving on to eyes, after I primed, because I wanted a glowy look I went with golds and the first that I used is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold and I put it all over the lid. I really like the Caviar Sticks, they’re pretty versatile, nicely pigmented and I like the way they blend. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and used Steampunk and Cinder in the crease and the outer lid and blended until I was happy with the look. I then took Steampunk and put in on my lower lash line to bring the look together. I used a little Dashing Through The Glow to highlight under my brow bone and filled in my brows using Dystopian. I then used my trusty Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Lipstick wise I used the LOC Color Me Confident Vibrant Matte Lipstick, which is one of my favorite reds.

RML4

RML5

RML15

Moving on, the second look we have is from the 4th of July. I always try to be patriotic with my makeup on the 4th and I’m happy with the way this one came out. And overall, even though it was different to how my typical 4th would look it was such a fun day. This is when I used the Supergoop Setting Mist which kept my face protected, I didn’t feel sticky which sometimes can happen with an SPF, and my makeup stayed in place. For my face I used the same base as the first look.

RML1

For the rest of my face I used the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna, the Seraphine Botanicals blush and for my highlight I used the Tini Beauty Barfly Highlighter in Candlelit. I like this one because it’s a really nice pinky shade that is so gorgeous when light hits it you get a lovely glow.

RML6

RML7

For my eyes, after priming, I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and first used Twig in the crease and then Slate a little bit lower and blended. Then I went into the Too Faced Smokey Eye palette and used Smolder on the outer corner, blending and bringing it in a little bit. I then went back to the ABH palette and used Cyborg on the rest of the lid and blended a little. For my liner I used Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner and the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. And I topped it off with the LOC Color Me Confident Vibrant Matte Lipstick.

RML8

RML9

RML16

And the third look we have is from the other day. It was a rainy day and I wanted to have fun with color and create something vibrant. For my face I used the same base as the previous looks.

RML1

For the rest of my face I used the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna, then I switched it up for my blush. I placed an order at Sephora recently and one of the samples I selected was some Buxom Wanderlust blushes because I’ve never tried them. What I ended up doing was mixing them and they created a really nice color. What I used was Dolly, which is a mauve and Mykonos, which is a peachy shade. And for my highlight I used Dashing Through The Glow.

RML10

RML11

For my eyes, after priming, I went into the Colourpop She palette and used Dear in the crease and a little bit lower. Then I went with Missy in the outer corner, making sure to blend and bringing it in a little bit. Then I used Babe on the rest of the lid, blending a little and because I wanted a bit more sparkle I went into the ABH Sultry palette and put a little bit of Pearl on top of Babe. Then I used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner and the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lipstick I took two matte liquid lipsticks, Anastasia Beverly Hills Crush and MDMFlow Retro and mixed them together, which I’ve done before and it creates a really pretty pinky shade. And I topped that with the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Gloss for a little sparkle/shine and some plumping. What I like about this lip plumper is you can feel and see it working but it’s not so crazy to where it feels like your lips are going to fall off.

RML18

RML13

RML14

RML17

That about wraps it up for this post, like I mentioned, these are some of my favorite posts to write so look out for more in the future and I’d love to know which of the three looks is your favorite. And I am going to link everything that I could find below.

Until next time, have fun creating your looks and you can never take too many makeup of the day pictures :).
