Happy Monday Everyone!

Today kicks off my Makeup Mondays looks for this month and I am so excited to bring you some fun holiday looks that cater to all range of skills. I want you all to feel inspired and not overwhelmed by the content that I post. So, I am starting with a pretty neutral and wearable look for all my readers who want something easy and simple.

This look uses one palette and only three shades. You can build up the intensity if you wish, but it’s pretty simple and can be recreated with any neutral palette you may own.

I hope you all enjoyed this look and stay tune for the other more fun/playful looks I have for you all throughout the Fridays in December.

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

Today I am sharing with you two products that I have been using as multi-tasking agents in my beauty routine. Both of the products that I mentioned below have been game changers for me.

I use this as a bronzer all over my face and as a transition shade on my crease for all of my eye looks.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter 

I use this highlighter to highlight the high points of my face and I recently started to use this as a eye shadow and I have been loving it.

I have been loving multi-tasking products that cut time out of my beauty routine. I also love that I am saving money by finding different uses to products I already own.

What are some of your favorite multi-tasking products? 

Have a great day and I will see you on Friday !

My Glamorous Everyday Make-Up Routine

 

IMG_9810

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my almost every day glamorous makeup look. On most  days I have been trying to put more effort into my eye look. Especially those days I know I have meetings scheduled and I need that extra confidence. Again, I don’t do this every single day I do tone it down if I don’t feel like being this glam at the office. But this past month I have been wearing this look 3 out of the 5 days of the week.

What I used: 

Profusion Mixed Metals Eyeshadow Palette

Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Foundation

Anastasia Amrezy Highlight

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Hudson

Directions for the Eye Look:

One: Place Adventurous on the crease.

Two: Place Rust on the 2/3 of the outer corner of your eye lid.

Three: Use Devious to darken you crease and blend the look together

Four: If you wish add a touch of Risky to the outer crease for a darker look.

Five: Apply your favorite highlighter on the inner corner of your eye.  You can also use any of the shimmering shades this palette has to offer.

Have you tried any of the any of the Profusion Makeup Products? I just recently discovered them at Target this past holiday season. I am highly impressed by the pigmentation and the wear of this palette.

I hope you all enjoyed this eye look!

See you all on Friday.

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:

I absolutely love how simple yet versatile this look is and I can change the lip color when I choose to tone it down or dress it up.

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

Have a great day!

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

I hope you all enjoyed this look and that you have a happy and healthy New Year. I am so excited to see what 2017 has in store for me and this little corner of the internet.

See you all in 2017!

Have a great NYE and stay safe.
