St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite posts to do, a makeup looks post! This one is going to focus on the look I did recently for St. Patrick’s Day. I always like to do fun and festive looks and for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day I feel like there’s so many possibilities, which I love, and I really like the way this look turned out.

Starting with the base of my face, the first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything using the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For the rest of my face I first bronzed using the Nars bronzer in Laguna, then I applied my Too Faced blush in Makeup & Be Merry and Too Faced highlighter in Angel Kisses.

The first thing I did for my eyes was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. So for this look I wanted to use multiple greens, so in total I used four different eyeshadow palettes. The first one I went into is the Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 2 from the ABH/Norvina Collection and from that I used the green that’s in the middle of the top row, A2, and that is a matte lime green. I took that and put it in the crease. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette and I used Theme Park which is a really pretty matte emerald-ish green and I put that in the crease as well and brought it down a little bit to the outer corner of the eye. For the outer corner specifically I wanted a dark shadow that was still green, so I went into one of the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, Hot Jalapeno, and used the dark green. It’s like a gray green and I packed that on the outer corner and brought it in just a little bit. For the rest of my eye I knew I wanted a sparkly gold, but I didn’t just want any gold, so I looked through different palettes and ended up going with the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and the shade Kiss & Caramel. This is a really pretty medium gold and it’s super buildable. I then took Theme Park and the gray green from Hot Jalapeno and blended those under my eye and brought them about halfway, then used Kiss & Caramel for the other half and in the inner corner of my eye. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper to line my eyes and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I wanted a neutral/brown lip to offset all the color on my eyes, so I first lined my lips using the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Kozy Kira then used the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Venus and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a fun makeup look for St. Patrick’s Day I’d love to see what you did. 

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

Five Pink/Red Looks of February

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post, that I really like doing. Last March I did a series of festive looks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, and I thought it would be fun to do the same with Valentine’s Day. I had a lot of fun doing these, so I think this is a trend I’ll be continuing.

For the first look I wanted to do something simple, but still fun. The first thing I did was prime my face and for that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything using the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

I then went into the Too Faced Unbearably Glam Palette and first put Boxes And Bows in the crease, then took a mixture of Christmas Dreams and Lords A Leapin’ all over my lid. I wanted to do a fun liner, so I sprayed an angled brush with setting spray and went into the ABH/Norvina Mini Vol 1 palette. I picked the first shadow in the second row because it’s really bright and fun. I topped off the eyes with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I first took the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09, Fuchsia and filled my lips in lightly, then I put the Trestique Mini Lip Glaze in Paris Pink, on top. And I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

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 :).

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

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.

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.

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.

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

April Favorites

Hi everyone,

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

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Sephora Play Box, which I will link below if you haven’t read. My first Play favorite is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is a holy grail product for me, I’ve been using it for a while and I always recommend it. It detoxifies, soothes the skin and helps with skins elasticity.

IMG_5434

My next favorite is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. I’ve worn this a few times since I got it and I really like it. There’s no clumping or transferring and it makes my lashes look full and long. Basically it does what it says on the tin and if you’re looking for a new mascara or just want to change it up then I definitely recommend giving this a try.

IMG_5431

IMG_5432

My last Play favorite is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I have a few of these Nars lip pencils and they’re some of my favorites. This one in particular is a really nice medium brown. These go on so smooth and have great staying power.

IMG_5438

IMG_5439

IMG_5440

I wanted to say quickly that as Sephora Play has ended I have subscribed to BoxyCharm and starting next month I will be unboxing those. I’m super excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy reading it.

And my last beauty favorite is the Sinful Colors Quick Bliss Nail Polish in 2674, Flushed. I’m always buying nail polish and when I saw the Quick Bliss line online, I was interested. The Quick Bliss line is quick dry, says it dries in 1 minute and I can attest to the fact that it dried down super quickly. They also have cherry oil which helps to protect from breakage. Flushed is a really pretty and sparkly pinky purple that goes a little bit gold when it hits the light.

IMG_5363

IMG_5362

Moving on I have a book favorite and it’s Tom Clancy’s Enemy Contact, A Jack Ryan Jr. Novel by Mike Maden. I’ve always really liked the Jack Ryan series, including the Amazon show. I haven’t read all of the books but after reading this one I picked up a few more. I really like that the series was expanded to Jack Ryan Jr and I think the writing is fantastic. This is definitely a series of books I recommend.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s the song A Conversation With Alice by Joe Bonamassa. This is a new song from Joe and I’ve been really liking it. I think the story behind it is great and I love the fact that he took his experience and turned it into a song. This song has a lot of elements that I like in a blues song and Joe plays slide, which I always really like. I first heard this on Spotify, but I’ll link the YouTube video below. It’s definitely worth a listen.

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 April favorites were.

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

April 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be unboxing my April Play Box from Sephora, but this isn’t a regular Play Box, this is actually the last one. Sephora has decided to end Play and they’re going to be rolling out something different coming soon. The theme for this month is Best-For-Last Beauty, which are some favorites products from the Play team. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through red with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Thank you for PLAY!ing’ with two hearts, written in red. I also received a thank you note for being a long time subscriber and it let me know that there is an extra product in the bag and a set of ten beauty and Play themed stickers.

IMG_5430

IMG_5426

So the first product we have is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. This is supposed to have a super creamy formula that gives length and buildable volume for up to 24 hours. I’m wearing this mascara today and so far I really like it. The formula is actually really creamy and it went on without any clumping and there’s no transfer. I quite like the brush, it’s nice and big with the plasticy bristles and it has a spikey bit on the end that makes sure you can get all your lashes.

IMG_5431

IMG_5432

The next product we have is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is a holy grail product for me and my absolute go to for setting sprays. It’s light, dries down quickly and once it has dried then your makeup is locked in. The box says for up to 16 hours and it delivers.

IMG_5433

Moving on we have the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is one of my favorite eye creams, I pretty much swear by it. It’s super lightweight and sinks in quickly along with helping with the elasticity of the skin. It has tiger grass which soothes and comfrey leaf which detoxifies. This is a product I always recommend.

IMG_5434

Next we have the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a lightweight mushroom infused lotion that is supposed to calm your skin and help to reduce any redness you may have. I don’t really have any redness, but I’m going to give this to someone I know who already uses and loves it.

IMG_5435

The second to last regular product we have is the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42. This is a super light sunscreen that can also acts as a primer along with absorbing any oil you may have and giving a matte finish. I don’t always use an SPF under my makeup, I typically do a setting spray that is an SPF as well but that can get a little tacky, so I’m interested to try this out.

IMG_5436

And what would be the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask. This is one of my all time favorite hair masks and I’m actually running low on the one I have so this is perfect timing. You put this all the way through your hair, leave for two to five minutes and rinse. It leaves your hair feeling really soft and healthy and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5437

The extra product that I received as a thank you is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I’m wearing this today and it’s a really nice medium brown shade. It went on smooth and it’s lasting well through the eating and drinking I’m doing. I have a couple of this is a range of different colors and I think they’re great.

IMG_5438

IMG_5439

IMG_5440

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your April Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. I’d also love to know what your favorite product is that you’ve received from Sephora Play in general.

Until next time, enjoy your products and thank you Sephora Play for all the great products :).

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.

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_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.

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.

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 :).

Blogmas Day Six: Christmas Day Makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Six! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through and that there’s only two weeks until Christmas. Today I’m going to be showing you guys what my Christmas day makeup is going to be. I like to decide what I’m going to do beforehand, so on the day I can just pop it on and have a chill day. For a while I’ve been doing gold eyes, but this year I wanted something different and this is what I came up with.

So, the first thing I did was moisturizer my face with the Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I really like this, it makes my face really soft and it gives me a nice glow that peeks through my foundation. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. After that I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes to brighten and in a few other places. And I topped that off with the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.

CHM2

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was go in with my bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Then I applied one of my favorite blushes, the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush. And I topped it off with the Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin.

CHM3

CHM4

For my eyes, the first thing I did was use the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, this is probably my favorite eyeshadow primer. Then I went in to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette and used Twig in the crease. It’s a really nice brown and I use it as a crease color for quite a few looks. Then I used the dark matte brown from the e.l.f. Eye Candy Eyeshadow Duo Set on the outer corner of my eye and I brought that in just a little. And on the rest of the lid I used the bright white shadow from that same e.l.f. duo. I then used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the look with the Lancôme Monsieur Big mascara, it gives you lashes for days.

CHM5

CHM6

ELF8

To top off the whole look I applied the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple. This is a deep brick red and I love it. It’s a great red lipstick. And I locked it all in with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

CHM7

CHM8

CHM1

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like to do posts like this so look out for more in the future. I’d also love to know what you guys do on Christmas. Do you go a little glam with your look, keep it simple or rock no makeup?

Until next time, have fun creating your looks and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas :).

November Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my November favorites. I have fun mix of items this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, all of my favorites are from my November Sephora Play Box, which I will link down below. My first favorite is the Glamglow Glamstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I really like this. It has pearl particles infused in it so it highlights as it’s hydrating. It sinks into the skin quickly, it smells nice and when you put it under foundation you do get a nice subtle glow.

NVSP1

My next beauty favorite is the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede. This is a beautiful rosy pink shade with a satin finish. I don’t have a lot of lipsticks in this shade but this one has made it’s a way to the front of my lipstick drawer. It’s nicely pigmented, has a creamy formula and has great staying power. This is one of those lipsticks that works in any season and I definitely recommend it.

NVSP6

NVSP7

NVSP8

And my last beauty favorite is the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. I’ve talked about this in the past, this is one of my favorite scents. I have a bottle of it sitting in my perfume shelf right now. It’s a very warm and slightly spicy scent with a vanilla undertone. I think it’s very well balanced and it’s perfect for this time of year. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.

NVSP12

NVSP13

My next favorite is a food and drink favorite and it’s holiday teas. I haven’t been listening to Christmas music yet, but I have gone in on the festive foods. Here I have the Celestial Seasonings Decaf India Spice Chai (I drink this all year, but more in fall/winter), Bigelow Peppermint Bark (Minty Chocolate Herbal Tea), Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice (I haven’t tried this one yet but I’m excited to) and Twinings Holiday Berry. I think the Peppermint Bark is my favorite right now but they’re all great and Twinings has another seasonal one that I want to pick up.

NVF1

Moving on I have what I guess you could call a lifestyle favorite and it’s HotHands hand warmers. I always buy a box of these in late November/early December but it got cold quick here so I bought some at the beginning of the month. I always keep a couple in my handbag and I’ve been appreciating myself for it. They stay warm for quite a while and they’re great to have around.

My second to last favorite is a website and it’s FoodTribe. FoodTribe is the sister site of DriveTribe, started by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May of The Grand Tour, and it’s all about food. There are a bunch of different categories or tribes on a ton of different food related subjects. I’ve been doing a little bit of food writing and recipe posting so I will link my FoodTribe profile down below.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, it’s Take That Odyssey-Greatest Hits Live. This album is from their recent tour, which celebrated their 30th anniversary, and it was recorded at the last show of that tour in Cardiff. This also has a DVD companion. I’ve been listening to this on Spotify since it came out and it’s so good, I also have seen little bits and pieces of the tour on YouTube. I think they did a brilliant job and I love the way they stayed true to their classic songs and changed the arrangement on others. 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 this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and if you’re celebrating I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving :).

-K

November Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my November Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Beauty For Self Care, meaning that these are products you can use and play with when you’re treating yourself to a chill night. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on the top. The front is a pretty see through purple with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Jugar, Spielen, Giocare, PLAY! #SephoraPlay’ written in purple. Those all mean play in various languages, there is another language as well but it’s an Asian language and I don’t even know how I would attempt to write that.

NVSP5

The first product we have is the Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can either wear on it’s own or under your foundation. Because this is infused with pearl particles it highlights as it hydrates. I’m wearing this right now and when I put it on I was surprised at how glowy it was. It smells nice, sunk in to my skin quickly and I can tell that I’m more glowy than usual. Overall I really like it.

NVSP1

Next we have the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30. You put this on after your serum and before your foundation. It’s supposed to give you sun protection, a good base to work with and because of the tiger grass, reduce any redness you have plus protect your skin from environmental aggressors. I’ve used one Dr. Jart+ product in the past and I did like it so we’ll see.

NVSP2

Moving on we have the Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara. This is a mascara that promises big, full lashes in one coat. The brush you get with this is an odd shape, it’s shaped like an S. I have tried Lancôme mascaras in the past, but the one I used I really didn’t like, the formula was too thick for my liking. But this one seems to be better. I will definitely let you guys know what I think.

NVSP3

NVSP4

The next product we have is the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede. This is a really pretty rosy pink shade with a satin finish. I’m wearing this today and I honestly love it. It’s really creamy, nicely pigmented and it has great staying power. I’ve been eating and drinking and it’s holding up really well. I would definitely recommend it.

NVSP6

NVSP7

NVSP8

The second to last product we have is the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. This is a unique lip product, it’s a lip balm meets lipstick. So you get this nice plum lipstick color but with a lip balm texture. This swatched really nicely and the color is really pretty. I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think, I’ll probably post pictures on Instagram.

NVSP9

NVSP10

NVSP11

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume. I have a bottle of this and I absolutely love it. It’s a slightly spicy and very warm scent. It has vanilla undertones and it’s very well balanced. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance definitely do, it’s so good.

NVSP12

NVSP13

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