IMG_9233

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a semi-wearable gold eye look. I used my Anastasia Subculture palette that I shared a few blog post ago. I have to be honest about this palette and say that this sucker has tremendous fall out (see pictures below). Like ridiculous fall out. I had to be extremely care when creating this look. I loved the look I came up with don’t get me wrong it just took me a little bit to accomplish it.

The three colors I used are:

New Wave

Adorn

Fudge

Would you over look the fall out from this palette? Do you mind palettes having fall out?

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.

My Everyday Makeup- February

img_0558

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my everyday Makeup routine. I had been using a bunch of new products at the beginning of January, but that was taking up too much time of my morning. I decided to create a look that I could wear everyday since I knew my time would be limited with grad school starting back up again. So here is what I came up with, hopefully you all enjoy.

I want to remind you that sometimes the basics are better than the extra fluff products we are being told to buy. This month try using some of your tried and true products and cut sometime in your beauty routine.

The product I used:

Here is what I did to achieve this look:

What are your go to products for a quick and easy everyday makeup look?

img_0348

Happy Saturday Everyone!

As we all gear to wrap up 2016 I wanted to post one last blog post, but I wasn’t sure what to talk about. So instead of just doing a random blog post about a topic I wasn’t too thrilled about I thought I would post a tutorial for my New Years Eve makeup look. I have to work so I kept it pretty simple, but still very chic and worthy of the New Year.

So here is what I used for this eye look:

-Laura Mercier Caviar stick Eye Color in Rose Gold

-LORAC PRO Mega 3 Palette

-Essences Eyeliner Pen

-Maybelline Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara

See you all in 2017!

Have a great NYE and stay safe.

This weekend is so busy for me. I have a bridal shower and a birthday party to attend on Saturday and I have to travel 2 hours for both so I sat down on Thursday thinking what makeup am I going to bring with me. I wanted a look that could be appropriate for both the bridal shower and birthday party and I think I nailed it.

Make up Look: You’re Such a Tease

IMG_0772

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a makeup look I created using the Tarte Glam Goodies Kit that I reviewed last Friday. You can check that out here. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and create something a bit more dramatic than what I would normally wear.

IMG_0762

Step One: I mixed crush and first kiss and applied it all over my lid.

Step Two: I added a soft matte brown to my crease to balance everything out. (This color is not included in the palette.)

IMG_0764

Step Three: To deepen my outer corner even more I added heartbreaker.

Step Four: I added whisper to my brow bone and blended everything together.

IMG_0766

Step Five: Apply your favorite mascara. I did not use the Tarte Mascara because it makes my lashes drop and a bit of smudging occurs.

IMG_0774

IMG_0768

Step Six: Apply the Tarteist Lip Paint in TBT.

Hope you all enjoy this makeup look!

Let me know if you want to see more makeup looks in the future?

Have a great day & I will see you on Monday!

Playing with color: A simple Makeup look

IMG_0599

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a makeup look I have been playing with. I am normally not the person that wears any color on my eyes. I tend to shy away from colorful eyeshadow and most times colorful eyeliner. I decided to change that this month and picked up two new eyeliners in a green shade.

I played around with them and this is what I came up with.

IMG_0594

A very simple eye look that adds a bit of color to any outfit I wear.

IMG_0597

The two eyeliners I used are: 

NYX Colored Felt Tip Liner in Teal

Essence Gel Waterproof Eye Pencil in Urban Jungle

IMG_0598

The rest of my face makeup is: 

Covergirl trunked nudes palette

E.L.F Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick in Touch of Pink

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Fanciful

I absolutely love this combo and I plan on trying out other colors for Spring and Summer.

Do you have any eyeliner recommendations? Favorite colors to play with?

Have a great day!
