Three Recent Makeup Looks: Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

 Today I thought it would be fun to show you guys three of the looks I did recently using the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions palette. This is unlike any other palette I have and I don’t wear colors like this very often, so I’ve been having fun with it. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first look we have is the first look I did using the palette. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glow Starter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This gives a great glow under foundation and smells really good. Then I went in with my foundation, I’m still using the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory, but I’ve switched to the liquid version and I like that much better. I also switched bought some new sponges and switched out the Beauty Blender ones that I was using for the Real Techniques and I like the Real Techniques so much better for blending. I then applied my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory, under my eyes and a few other places and topped it off with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

For the rest of my face I first went in with bronzer and used Too Faced Extra Toasty. This bronzer is nicely pigmented and blends well. Then I applied the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush from the Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. Isla is a pretty coral shade, the formulation is really nice, it’s quite pigmented without being too much and it’s very buildable. And I topped it off with the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is one of my favorite highlighters, it’s the perfect light pink and gives a great shine.

For my eyes I didn’t have a set plan of what I wanted to do, but the first thing I did was prime with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eye Shadow Primer. This has become a primer that I reach for a lot. It’s on the thicker side, but really does make the shadow last all day and it brings out the colors of the shadows you’re wearing. The first shadow I went in with is the light matte pink in the top left corner and I used that as a base all over my lid. Then I used the the last shadow in the palette, the matte raspberry, and I packed that into the crease and blended. To deepen it up I went in with the first shadow in the second row, that matte maroon, and I put that a little bit in the crease but mostly I packed it on the outer corner of my eye and blended. On the rest of my lid I wanted some sparkle, so I used the rose gold glitter in the top right corner. I took that same matte maroon under my eyes on the outer corner, joining it with the outer corner on the top. I brought that in to the middle and then used that same rose gold on the inner corner under my eye and brought that to the middle to meet the maroon. I then lined with the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I finished off the eyes with the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara, this is a mascara I started using recently and like the Better Than Sex, I really like it. If you want long lasting volume and length, I recommend it. On my lips I first applied the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, this is a nude liner that I use a lot and really like. On top of that I used the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. And I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

The second look came from me wanting to just play with makeup and use glitter on a random Saturday. And I did in fact go run errands in the look and only received one or two odd looks for being at the grocery store with a eyelid full of glitter. The base of my face for this look is the same as the first look.

IMG_5744

For the rest of my face, I first went in with bronzer and used the Benefit Hoola bronzer. This is one of my longtime favorites and definitely one of my go to’s. Then I applied the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee & Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold blush. This again is a blush I’ve been using for a while and have repurchased a few times. It’s a nice pink and the glow that you get from it isn’t too over the top. When it came to highlighter, I picked a relatively new one for me, the Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in 335A: Bloom Time. This is a pretty pink that I would say is between a light and medium pink shade wise and has a nice shine too it when the light catches it.

IMG_5749

IMG_5750

For my eyes, after priming with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged, I went in with that same light matte pink and used that all over the eye as a base. At the point I had decided that I wanted to do a halo eye look, for the first time, so I just went for it with my shadow choices, full send. I picked that matte raspberry and packed it in the inner corner of the eye and in a bit, then I did the same on the outer corner, bringing it in a bit. Once I was satisfied with that I decided to go full glitter and grabbed the small palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House party and went with the gold glitter, Miss Kringle. I then used the matte raspberry under my eyes to bring the look together. I lined my eyes with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner and applied the Sephora Collection Lashcraft Big Volume mascara. I used the same combo on my lips as the first look and set the whole thing with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5751

The third look is from the other day and for this look I want to play with the more red shade in the palette and was inspired by the sunset. The base for this look is the same as the other two, which was not intentional because I do have other primers and setting powders I use, but it just worked out that on these days this is what I used.

IMG_5744

For the rest of my face I first used the Benefit Hoola bronzer, then went in with the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush and when it came to highlighter I wanted to use a product I just got, so I used the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling. This is a subtle silver shimmer and is great on the face and the body. I really like it.

IMG_5753

IMG_5754

For my eyes after priming with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged, I used the light matte pink as a base all over the eyes. Then because I wanted the sunset look I first went in the crease with the light matte peach shade. Then, to use the shade I haven’t yet, I went in with that orangey/red on the bottom left and packed that in the outer corner and a little in the crease. On the rest of the lid I took Don’t Carat All from the Too Faced Pretty Rich palette and topped that with a little bit of Fluent In Diamonds, a gold glitter. I lined with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. I lined my lips with the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, then used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca, this is a light pink/salmon shade and I’m wearing it today. I like it a lot. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have the Ruby Obsessions palette I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. Also, I really enjoy doing posts like this, so look out for more in the future.

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

Three Recent Makeup Looks Winter Edition

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be showing and walking through three of my recent makeup looks. I always enjoy doing this type of post, and with that being said, let’s get into it.

The first look we have is from right after Christmas when I was wanting to try out my new makeup, so I had a little look through the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party collection. I did do a post on that recently, so I will link that down below. The first thing I did was prime my face with the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer, I’ve been using this primer for a while and I really like it. It gives me a great base to work with. 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 topped that off with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper. This has quickly become one of my go to setting powders, it gives you a great smooth finish and it smells like peaches which is a nice addition.

IMG_5012

For the rest of my face I used the blush, bronzer, highlighter palette from the Christmas Cookie House Party collection. The bronzer, Extra Toasty is a really nice lighter brown and it blends really nicely. The blush, Daydreamer is a lighter to medium pink and it’s very buildable and the highlighter, Get Frosted, is gold with pink undertones and it’s so pretty.

IMG_5013

IMG_5014

For my eye look I wanted to do something simple but fun. So the first thing I did was use the Too Faced 24+ Hour Anti Crease Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer. This primer is great, it locks in my eye shadow and it works really well with glitter and shimmer shadows. Then I went in with What A Batch, I used that as my base shadow and because it’s a lighter brown that gives off a nice color, I used a little extra in the crease. Then I used Secret Santa, a deep chocolate brown on the outer corner and brought it in a bit and blended. I then took Easy Bake Lovin’ which is a really pretty, and pigmented, deep sparkly copper and put that over the rest of my eyelid and blended. I used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Smashbox Super Fan Fanned Out mascara. To bring the look together I used the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. There are a ton of different shades of these lipsticks but they’re all really pigmented, long wearing and smell like peaches.

IMG_4766

My second look was from that time between Christmas and New Years when no one really knows what to do with themselves and for the first time in a while, I was bored. So I thought that having fun with makeup would be a great way to use my time. I was right.

For this look, I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow, then same base as the previous look. Covergirl + Olay Simple Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory. Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder.

IMG_5012

For the rest of my face I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush, which is one of my favorites. And the Too Faced Get Frosted highlighter. The rose gold sparkle in the blush goes so well with the tone and sparkle of Get Frosted.

IMG_5015

IMG_5016

For my eyes I went to the smaller palette in the Christmas Cookie House Party collection and after using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I first went in with On A Roll which is a light beigey nude and I used that as a base and I put a little extra in the crease. Then I used Can’t Catch Me, which is a dark brown, in the outer corner and I brought that in a little bit. I then picked the glitter shadow that on first glance stood out the most and that is Snow Pink and it’s rose gold. Since this look I’ve worn another glitter shadow and they’re all so good. I went with my go to Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper for liner and finished the look with the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara, my favorite of the Lancome mascaras. I wanted a more neutral lip so I used the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. And spritzed my face with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5022

IMG_5024

IMG_4797

And the third look we have is from NYE. For this look I wanted to do something fun and play with color.

My base for this look is the same as the previous, GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow primer, Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder.

IMG_5012

For the rest of my face, I used one of my favorite bronzers, Benefit Hoola, then I used the Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and the Too Faced Get Frosted highlighter.

IMG_5017

IMG_5018

For my eyes, the first thing I did was apply the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow primer, then I went in with Cream Filling, which is a nude and I used that as a base. Then I used That’s My Jam, a really fun and pretty berry toned purple and I used that on the outer corner of my eye and brought it in about halfway and blended. I wanted something that would add sparkle and go with the purple, so I used Tinsel Town, which is a sparkly purple/white. I then used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and brought it together with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I wanted a little bit of sparkle on my lips as well so I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Liquid Lipstick in Crush and topped it with 69, Winter Blizzard from the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses #LipStories set. It’s a metallic white base with pink shimmer and it’s so gorgeous. Then I spritzed my face with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, like I said, I quite like doing this type of post so look out for more in the future.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and makeup is always fun :).

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 :).

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.

SM7

SM10

SM1

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.

SM17

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.

SM18

SM20

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.

SM13

SM16

SM3

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 :).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :).
