3 Recent Looks Lime Crime Venus III Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I have a post that I really like doing, and that is a 3 recent looks. This time it’s going to be about the Lime Crime Venus III Palette. This is a palette that I really like a lot and I’ve been having fun playing around with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did with the palette and I wanted to do something fun a bright, so this is what I came up with. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and Ofra Pressed Banana Powder to set it.

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Nars Laguna bronzer. Then I applied just a little bit of the Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry blush and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the palette and the first shadow I used is Ecstasy and I put that in the crease, but I did so with a light hand and built it up just a little bit. Then I took Paradise and packed that on the outer and inner corners of my eyes, making sure to bring it in a little bit on both sides but leaving a space in the middle. For the space in the middle, I mixed Beam and Rapture and it created a really pretty effect. I then took Paradise and put it under my eye from the outer corner to about 2/3rds of the way in and for the rest and into the inner corner I used Beam. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I wanted a nice pink, so I used the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous and I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to do something with the pink shadows in the palette and I really like how this look came out. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nuge Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 250, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_7721

For the rest of my face I used the same products as the first look. Nars bronzer in Laguna, Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry blush and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. 

IMG_7728

IMG_7730

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them with the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. I then went into the palette and used the shade Dreamy. I took that and put it in the crease, building it up just a little bit. I then took Bliss and packed that onto the outer corner of my eyes, bringing it up into the crease just a little and onto the lid. For the rest of my eye I applied Beam and blended that with Bliss. I then took Bliss under my eye from the outer corner about 2/3rds of the way in and for the rest and into the inner corner, I applied Beam. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I wanted a pink, so I used the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous. And I set everything with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_7725

IMG_7597

For the third look I wanted to do something different to the first two and I think it came out so good. I like this one a lot. 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, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_7726

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then applied the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and Too Faced Angel Kisses highlighter. 

IMG_7727

IMG_7734

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I took Ecstasy and packed that into the crease. I really like using eyeshadow as liner, so I took and angled brush and lined my eyes using Ecstasy. I then connected the crease and the tip of the liner for a bigger effect and for a bit of sparkle I tapped on a little bit of Heavenly. I topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. For my lips I wanted something brown to bring it all together, so I took the Beauty Vaulte Kozy Kira Lip Liner and put it all over my lips, topping it with the Nars AfterGlow Lip Balm in Laguna. And I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. 

IMG_7729

IMG_7603

That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing posts like this, so look out for more in the future. If you have 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 :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought that today would be the perfect day to do my March favorites. I have a pretty good and fun mix of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. This is one of those holy grail makeup items for me, it has a really nice and creamy formula that doesn’t smudge, run, transfer or flake. The brush is on the fluffier side and it really does a great job of coating all of your lashes. Plus you get a ton of volume and length without your lashes feeling heavy. This is a mascara I always recommend.

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

My next favorite is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. I wanted this palette when I saw the spoilers for the box and I’m so happy that I got it. This is an 8 pan palette with a shade range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and brown. There are also five different finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. I’ve been using this palette quite a bit and I have a 3 recent looks post coming on it. I don’t want to give away too much of my thoughts on it right now, but I will say that I definitely recommend giving this palette a try. 

IMG_7542

IMG_7544

IMG_7554

IMG_7555

And my last beauty favorite is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This is a product that I was slightly unsure about when I saw it because I really don’t like the essence of rose in beauty and skincare products, but I do love a good setting spray. After a few times of using it I can tell you that I do really like it. Once you spray it the smell dissipates pretty quickly and what you’re left with is makeup that it locked into place for up to 16 hours and won’t smudge. 

IMG_7550

Moving on to more random favorites, I first have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of shoes. It’s not just any pair of shoes though, these are the Hoka One One Cavu 3’s. I’ve been looking for a good workout/running shoe for a long time and hands down these are the best ones I’ve tried. They’re comfortable, supportive and they don’t give me shin splints, which is huge. These are a little more expensive, but the quality and comfort is worth every penny. I also have to thank Tony Kanaan for recommending Hoka, because I might not have found them otherwise. 

IMG_7451

IMG_7538

My next favorite is a candy favorite and it’s the Hershey’s Cookies and Creme bar. Cookies and creme is one of my favorite flavor combos, and I’ve always liked the Hershey bars but they’ve been revamped and now have more cookie pieces which make it that much better. Definitely recommend.

IMG_7558 

My second to last favorite is a racing favorite and it’s an event that took place last weekend, Funny Car Chaos. I watched the live stream of the race and it was so fun to see so many Funny Cars show up to qualify and race, every round was great, the races were close and it was a great event to watch. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month it’s Eric Clapton, in March I spend a lot of time listening to Eric because it’s his birthday month and while I listen to him regularly in general, but it’s definitely more in March. 

That abut 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 March favorites were. 

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

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 :).

March BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my March box from BoxyCharm, and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Boxy Lucky, which is perfect because St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th.

IMG_7540

So the first product we have is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. This is a really pretty palette, it has Venus herself on the front with pink hair, the background is lavender and it has a rose gold boarder around it. 

IMG_7542

You get a decent sized mirror with this palette and the mirror has a rose gold boarder around it as well. 

IMG_7543

So this is an 8 pan palette, and there are a range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and browns. There are also five, yes five, finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. 

IMG_7544

The first shade we have is Dreamy, a matte mauve. Next to that is Beam, which is a light lilac that has a pinky shift to it, then there’s Heavenly, a really pretty rose gold and the last shade in the row is Rapture, a light-ish blush/pink shade that has a little bit of shimmer to it. 

IMG_7554

The second row starts with Ecstasy, a matte deep purple/brown. Then there’s Paradise, which is so gorgeous and I can’t wait to see on the eye, but it’s a bright fuchsia that has a little sparkle to it. Next to that is Bliss, which is a matte rosy shade and the last shadow in the row is Beloved, which is a metallic, it’s a unique shade that I had to Google to double check, I was being accurate about, but I would call it a mink/brown. It’s a very pretty shade though. 

IMG_7555

The next product we have is the Too Faced Damn Girl! Mascara. This is my choice item for the month and it’s one of my all time favorite mascaras. This has a very creamy formula that doesn’t run or smudge. The brush is on the fluffier side so it coats all of your lashes and it gives you a ton of volume and length without feeling heavy or flaking. This is a mascara I always recommend. 

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

Next up we have the KAB Cosmetics Lip Oil in Blue Raspberry. This is exactly what it says, a lip oil that is supposed to hydrate your lips and it comes in six different tints. I have to be honest here, because I always like to be transparent with my feelings when it comes to product reviews, this is a do not pass go, do not collect $200 situation. I know that people tend to be trusting of a brand or think it’s going to be super great when it comes from someone they’ve seen on a tv show, but there’s been controversy behind KAB and from my experience with this brand and other brands like it I would say stay away, but if you are interested in it I would recommend doing your research just like you would with any other brand. With this product in particular, the packaging has a really cheap feel to it, it doesn’t smell good, I also question the color choice, and I think it’s overpriced. It’s $20.00, and for that, lower and slightly higher, you can get much better quality lip oils. 

IMG_7548

IMG_7549

The second to last product we have is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. I was 50/50 when I saw this, on one hand I love a good setting spray but on the other hand I don’t love the smell of rose in beauty or skincare products. I like roses as a flower, but the essence of rose I do not like. But I smelled this and it smells really good, so I’m excited to try it out. This is supposed to be aura lifting, packed with antioxidents and says it will prevent smudging and lock in your look for up to 16 hours. 

IMG_7550

And the last product we have is the Lavish Wet Brush Cleaning System. This is a brush cleaner that comes with a bar of soap, a silicone cleaning pad and a little tin to store it all in. From what I can smell through the packaging, the little soap smells really good, which is always a plus. I was just thinking about how I need to buy another brush cleaner, so this came at the perfect time. I have another product from Lavish, the dry brush cleaner and I love it, so I’m interested to try this out. 

IMG_7551

IMG_7552

IMG_7553

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your March box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my April box :).

Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post for you and it’s a review of the Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection. I got this for Christmas and I’ve been using it since. So with this collection you get three pieces, there’s a mini mascara, a face palette and an eyeshadow palette. This has a holo look as well, it can be pink/purple or it can be a teal/turquoise.

IMG_6956

IMG_6957

The mascara that you get in this collection is a mini Better Than Sex. This is one of my favorite mascaras and a holy grail item for a lot of people. This has a nice big brush that coats all of your lashes, the formula is great because it not only gives you volume and length but it doesn’t transfer or flake. 

IMG_7111

IMG_7112

The next item we have is the face palette. This has a very glamorous design, it has diamonds and sparkles with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and a grey/black bow on top. In this face palette you get a blush and a highlighter. 

IMG_7108

The inside of the packaging is pretty as well. The top is teal with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and has a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a grey/black sparkly bow. The bottom, where the powders are is a shiny gold. 

IMG_7109

Onto the actual powders, the blush is in the shade Makeup & Be Merry. This is a brighter pink and you can easily put on too much, a mistake I made when I first put it on, but with a light hand it can look really nice. The highlighter is in the shade Angel Kisses. It’s a nice champagney gold and it has a nice sparkle to it, I like it a lot. 

IMG_7110

IMG_7115

The eyeshadow palette is very glamorous as well. It has diamonds and sparkles, a gold mirror with a white bear in the middle that’s wearing a pink diamond necklace, a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a sparkly grey/black bow. Under the mirror is a teal banner that says ‘Too Faced’ in black. 

IMG_7113

This palette has 12 shadows and they’re a mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters.

IMG_7114

I swatched these in the rows they’re in in the palette. The first shadow we have is Christmas Dreams and this is a light pink with a lot of silver sparkle. It looks really light in the picture, but it’s buildable. Next to that is Special Delivery and that is a matte light brown that has some light purple undertones. The last shadow in the row is All I Want, and that is a dark purple with silver, gold and purple glitter in it. 

IMG_7116

The second row starts with Silver Bells and that is a neutral glitter that is silver and brown. Next to that is Boxes And Bows and that is a matte light rosy pink. And the last shadow in the row is Lords A Leapin’ and that is an iridescent light pink that would be a great topper.

IMG_7117

The next row starts with Candy Cane and that is a hot pink shimmer that I really like. Next to that is String Of Lights and that is a dark pink glitter. And the last shadow in the row is Nutcracker, which is a matte dark brown. 

IMG_7118

The last row starts with Blue Christmas and that is a shimmery blue/green, it’s very pretty shadow. Next to that is Sex & Sleigh Bells, a black shadow with silver and blue glitter in it. And the last shadow in the row is Ice Queen which is a white/blue glitter that has various colors of glitter in it. It’s really pretty. 

IMG_7119

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have this collection or any of the others that were a part of the Too Faced Holiday Collection I’d love to know what your favorite shadows are. 

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

What I Got For Christmas 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way bragging, I like to watch and read these types of posts, and I find it fun to write them as well. So this year I didn’t have a real list of what I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides a bunch of my favorite candy, there were three other things. The first isn’t pictured because I already put it in my handbag, I have a little kit in my handbag that has all the essentials in it, and it was a mini deodorant. The nex thing was a Jergens Ultra Healing lotion, this has Vitamins C, E and B5 and moisturizes for 48 hours. This is one of my favorite lotions for winter, and I definitely recommend checking it out if you have dry skin or get drier skin during the winter months. And the last thing in my stocking was a Duracell 500 Lumen LED flashlight. This flashlight is stupidly bright, it has four different settings and it’s a mini so you get a great flashlight that fits in your hand and would definitely fit in your handbag if you wanted a handbag flashlight.

IMG_6960

So switching to gifts and starting with beauty, I have a couple of makeup related items. The first is the Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection. I think that the Too Faced holiday collection is great this year, everything is really pretty, but the Unbearably Glam had the colors that interested me the most. I’m not going to show too much of this because I’m going to do a whole post about it. But I will say that I really like the packaging, it’s got a nice holographic look to it and I like all the detail with the bear. This is a three piece set, so you get an eyeshadow palette, a face palette that has a blush and highlight and a mascara. I used this palette today and so far I’m impressed. 

IMG_6956

IMG_6957

The second beauty related item I didn’t take a picture of because it wasn’t in the stack with the other gifts. I think it’s in my wallet though. But it’s a Sephora gift card. There was a couple of holiday things I wanted from Sephora, but they sold out super quick, so I was given a gift card and with my birthday coming up, I’ll be putting it to good use. 

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion related items. The first is a USC shirt. I really like the style of this, I don’t have any long sleeved USC gear and it fits great.

Next we have a green/blue cropped long sleeved shirt. This has lace detail, cute buttons and it came knotted at the bottom. This is like a light sweater, it’s very soft and it’s super cute on. I tried all of these items on, but I haven’t worn any of them yet.

The second to last clothing item we have is a dark gray cropped Beatles sweatshirt. This says ‘The Beatles’ on the hood in multiple colors, as the Abbey Road album cover on the front with ‘The Beatles’ written below. This is super soft and keeps me nice and warm.

The last clothing item we have is a light pink cropped sweater. This is crocheted/knitted so it has a ton of detail and it has three big buttons down the front. This is adorable on and is actually pretty warm.

Next we have some practical things. The first is a 2021 Erin Condren planner. The Erin Condren Life Planner has been an absolute game changer for me and I love it. The pattern that I went for this time is the zodiac and it’s customizable, so I went with Capricorn, because I am a Capricorn and my name is on it. It also came with a to do list pad and some gift tags.

The second practical thing I got is a calendar. I have a couple of different calendars that I use for different things, but this is my main calendar. I always like a theme for calendars, so I went with a jet theme and there’s so super cool pictures. I also like that this calendar has a ‘on this day in military history’ fact for every day of the month. This is the first time I’ve seen that on a calendar and I love military history, so it’s a win-win.

I have two gifts that haven’t come yet, but I’m so excited about both of them. The first is actually a practical thing and it’s a pair of blue light glasses. I’ve wanted a good pair forever and recently I’ve been spending more time on my computer, so these will definitely be great to have. And the other is music related. It’s a Beatles songbook for ukulele. It has 100 songs, lyrics, chord symbols and chord diagrams. I’m always looking for ukulele sheet music for Beatles songs and online it can be hit and miss, so I can’t wait to have a legit book. 

The last thing I got for Christmas is also music related and it’s a ukulele. But not just any ukulele, this is an Epiphone Les Paul Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele in Vintage Sunburst. I pretty much haven’t been able to stop staring at this since I got it, it’s everything I thought it would be and more. I tuned it yesterday and have played around with it a little bit and it has such an incredible tone. I do want to get an amp to plug it into, so I can use it acoustically and electrically. I also want to get a strap for it, so if you guys have any recommendations for good ukulele straps let me know.

That about wraps it up for this post, I’d love to know what you guys got for Christmas.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had a great Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: 3 Recent Holiday Looks

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be showing you 3 festive looks that I’ve done during December. I already have my Christmas Day Makeup figured out, but if you don’t, hopefully this post will give you a little inspiration.

The first look I did was gold. I have quite a few gold shadows I could’ve used, but I went with a bold gold. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory and my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory. And set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I first bronzed and to do that I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlighter. This blush is a nice light/medium pink and it’s nicely buildable. And the highlighter is a nice gold with a little bit of rosiness.

IMG_6887

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and to do that I used the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and the first thing I did was take the matte nude shade and put it all over my lid. Then I took a light brown and put it in the crease. I then used a dark chocolaty brown and packed that on the outer corner of the eye and brought it a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied the bright gold. I then took that chocolatey brown under my eye and brought it about two-thirds of the way in and put the gold on the remaining third and in the inner corner of my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because it’s the holidays all of these looks feature red lipstick and for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to do something fun and a little bit over the top, so I went with green. For my face I used the same products as the first look with the exception of the powder. For this look I used the Ofra Cosmetics Banana Powder

IMG_6884

For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola bronzer. For my blush and highlighter I used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo palette in Lychee.

IMG_6890

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and I put the nude shadow all over my lids. Then I put a light brown shadow in the crease, just to have a background shade and a little bit of depth. Then I applied the shimmery emerald green all over my lid. It’s such a pretty color and translates really well from pan to eye. To mix it up a little I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and from that took Nooks & Cranberries, a matte red shade, and put that under the entirety of my eye and then put the white shimmery shade form the e.l.f. palette in the inner corner of my eye. To line my eyes I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and topped off the eyes with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I applied the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. And I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

And for the third look I wanted to do something that mixed a couple of colors so I went with a red and gold look. For my face, I used the same products that I used in the first look. 

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer, Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and e.l.f. highlighter in Lychee. 

IMG_6892

IMG_6894

For my eyes I first primed using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and took the nude shade, Cream Filling, and put it all over my eye. I then went into Nooks & Cranberries and put it in the crease lightly, then I packed it on the outer corner and the inner corner of my eye. In the middle I left a space and put Icing On Top, it’s a very pretty gold. To line my eyes I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and I topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. I applied the YSL Tatouage Couture in 5 Rosewood Gang on my lips and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Blogmas Day Two: Black Friday Haul

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Two! Today we’re going to be doing a Black Friday haul. I did a bit of shopping during Black Friday and Cyber Monday and most of it was Christmas gifts for others, so the few things that I bought for myself is what I’m going to be showing you today.

IMG_6722

You’ll notice that I included the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette in this picture and that’s because I did buy it during a pre-Black Friday sale and originally this post was supposed to be the first one of Blogmas, but I was still waiting for a few things to be delivered so I swapped the posts. I will link yesterday’s post below if you haven’t read it. 

IMG_6715

IMG_6716

Sticking with the theme of makeup, I picked up one of the Too Faced Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows. This one is in the shade Candied Rose. These are high shine, multi-dimensional liquid glitter eyeshadows that give you great color payoff, but they dry down really quickly and are really long lasting. These are on sale right now on the Too Faced website for $5.50, so get them now if you want one. I know I’m going to be getting a few more.

Moving to skincare, I picked up a few things from Sephora and the Sephora Collection. I really like the SC face masks, so I picked up a trio. 

IMG_6723

The first one I got is the Watermelon After Sun Mask. This comes with a face mask and a decollete mask and is for quenching and tan perfecting. This one isn’t exactly a winter mask, but I do like to keep the after sun masks in face mask drawer just to have them. 

IMG_6724

The next mask is a Lychee face mask that is Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening. I haven’t tried the lychee SC face mask before, but I do love a brightening and moisturizing mask, especially in the winter so I’m excited to try this one. 

IMG_6725

And the last one I got is a Charcoal Nose Strip. I don’t actually do nose strips that often, but I do like the charcoal ones. They’re really purifying and I think they work the best. 

IMG_6726

And the last thing I bought is a blanket, but not just any blanket, a super plush and oversized blanket. I got this at Kohl’s and they had a huge selection in terms of pattern and I picked this geometric blue one. 

IMG_6730

They weren’t wrong when they said super plush and oversized. This is probably the softest blanket I own and it’s the perfect thickness for a blanket this cozy. 

IMG_6732

In terms of size, it’s 5ft by 6ft and you can comfortably use the short side of it. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking for a blanket for yourself or as a gift for someone. 

IMG_6731

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys picked up anything during Black Friday, I’d love to know what you got. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas so far :).

3 Recent Looks, Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite types of posts, a Recent Looks. This time it’s all about looks I did with the Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette. I really like this palette a lot, I think it’s very versatile and I like every look I’ve created with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did when I got the palette. I thought that one of the best ways to test the palette would be grab the brightest shade and just go for it. I’m really happy with how it came out. So the first thing I did was prime my face using 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 the whole thing with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

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 using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Dreamland which is a matte peachy/salmon shade and I put that in the crease. Next I applied Turn It Up, a really vibrant hot pink satin shade and I put that on the outer corner on my eye and blended into the crease a little. For the rest of my eye I applied Euphoric, a cream toned glitter. I put a little bit of Turn It Up and Dreamland under my eye and Euphoric in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, then applied the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara. Because I did a bold eye I wanted to do a neutral lip, so I lined my lips using the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and on top of that used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. I set the entire look using the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

I then 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 used my Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I applied the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Eyeshadow primer. The first shadow I used was Photo Op, a matte light orangey brown and I put that in the crease. Then I used On Set, a matte chocolatey brown and I put that on the outer corner of my eye, a little bit in the crease and blended. For the rest of my eye I applied Pure Bliss, which is a medium toned gold glitter. I put a bit of On Set under my eye and Pure Bliss in the inner corner. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooperto line my eyes and applied the Urban Decay Perversion mascara.

I then took Electric, a deep blue glitter, and put that on two thirds of my eye. For the rest of my eye I applied Utopia, a light blue glitter with flecks of white and yellow glitter and I blended those together a bit. I then took Insta-Worthy and put that under my eye.
