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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought I would do my March 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 March Sephora Play Box. If you haven’t read that there will be a link down below. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I’ve mentioned a few times that Amika is one of my favorite brands when it comes to hair products and this dry shampoo didn’t disappoint. It not only made my hair feel refreshed but it was soft and it gave me nice volume. And this didn’t leave any residue like some dry shampoos can.

MRSP5

My next favorite is the Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I knew as soon as I swatched this I would love it and I have been. I’ve been using this most days since I got it and now it’s got a permanent spot in my makeup bag. It’s got a great glow when the light hits it, the amount of sparkle is perfect and I love the color. It’s perfect for spring/summer and like I thought originally, very buildable. If you haven’t checked out Nars Bronzers I definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP8

MRSP7

MRSP6

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace fragrance. This not only smells good but it wears really well. When I first smelled it I was immediately brought to sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows with friends. It’s woody and spicy but also sweet and vanillay. This is a fragrance that you can definitely wear all year long because it’s so well balanced.

MRSP9

My last beauty favorite is my makeup look from St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to do something fun and festive but I don’t have a lot of green eyeshadow, I am going to order the ColourPop Just My Luck Palette though. So I did a gold eye, I used three golds, blended for 100 years until I liked it, and did an emerald shade on my lower lash line. I’m overall really happy with how it came out.

MRF4

Moving on, I have a fashion favorite and that is the Crystabel Sneakers from JustFab. I was browsing through their website recently and found myself looking at sneakers which is something I don’t have a lot of. One thing I’m never opposed to is expanding my shoe collection. I was looking at a few different pairs, but I feel in love with these and because I’m a popular size, I bought them immediately. They come in three different colors, white, black and rose gold and I bought the rose gold. They have white stars, white on the back and white laces. I’ve worn these once since getting them and not only are they super comfortable, but they go with pretty much everything.

MRF2

MRF3

I have two kind of random favorites, the first is puzzles. I’ve always loved doing puzzles, I grew up doing them and recently I got back into it. I completed this puzzle in a few days, mostly working on it before I went to bed, and I was so happy when it was done. This is a 1,000 piece Dowdle Folk Art London puzzle and every time I looked at it I discovered something new. I really like the style of the Dowdle Folk Art puzzles, so I’m going to look and see what else they have.

MRF1

My next kind of random favorite is baseball. Yesterday was Opening Day and baseball is officially back. The Mariners had a little bit of a different start because they played their first two official games in Japan, which was cool. But they were able to start this season at home yesterday and win! Which was super exciting and really fun. This year it’s basically a whole new team, but I’m excited to see how this season is going to play out.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Alone in the Universe album. This isn’t an album that I listened to a lot when it came out, but recently Spotify has been playing me a lot of the songs and I’ve really been enjoying it. Top to bottom it’s a great album, I don’t think I could pick one song that’s my favorite but When I Was A Boy and All My Life have been playing a lot. If you haven’t heard it, I would definitely recommend giving it a listen.

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 I hope you had a great March :).

March Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my March 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 in Bloom. Now that it’s officially Spring, these products, a bouquet of beauty is what they’re calling it, are here to help you with your spring looks. The bag this month is similar to the previous months, plastic with a snap closure, see through red on the front with various beauty and lifestyle objects and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back of the bag is white with ‘Your once-a-month, squeal-inducing bag of amazingness is here #SephoraPlay’ written in red.

MRSP1

The first product we have is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. This is supposed to leave your hair feeling soft, refreshed and give you volume. I absolutely love Amika, so when I saw this I was excited. I use their dry conditioner and hair mask and it does wonders for my hair. If you’ve never checked them out, I would definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP5

The next product we have is the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser Skin Transforming Hydrating Cleansing Serum. This is a one step cleanser that is supposed to not only remove all of your makeup, but hydrate your skin. I’ve never used any of the IT Cosmetics skincare, but I like them as a brand. I’m interested to try this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

MRSP2

Moving on, we have the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in Y245- Soft Sand. I’ve tried a couple of the Make Up For Ever foundations in the past and I like them. This one is a medium coverage, while being lightweight and buildable. And it’s supposed to leave you with a natural finish.

MRSP3

Next up we have the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Noir. This is a mascara that I’ve talked about before and am currently using. I like the brush that you get with this, it’s big and curved so you really get all of your lashes. And it’s has Jojoba Seed oil so it really doesn’t clump or flake.

MRSP4

The second to last product is the Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I’m a big fan of Nars and I actually haven’t used any of their bronzers. The first thing I did when I opened this was swatch it and it’s honestly so pretty. It’s got the perfect amount of shimmer and the glow when the light hits it was amazing. It also seems to be really buildable and I’m looking forward to incorporating this into my makeup routine.

MRSP8

MRSP7

MRSP6

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace fragrance. This smells so good, it’s woody and spicy but also a little vanillay and sweet. But not in an overpowering way, it’s very well balanced. It reminds me of sitting around the fire with friends roasting marshmallows. If you ever get the chance to smell it, I would definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP9

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