Sunset Vibes

GUYSSSS!!!!! I am so proud of this look. Seriously, I normally don’t wear bright colors but seeing as I bought the Morphe 35b palette I better start right? My favorite compliment that I got from this look was from my little sister, she said, ” You can wear bright colors and not look like a clown!!” She was so proud of me for this, she’s my biggest fan and gives me so much support, it’s things like that that keep me inspired and to keep pushing, that one day I’ll get to where I want to be. 007I’m not going to go into full face details on this post, I’m just going to cover the eye shadow aspect of it, but if you have ANY questions, seriously please don’t hesitate to ask!

Okay, I know my blending sucks, I’ll get there I promise. Also, it probably doesn’t help that my lighting in my make up room is down right terrible (I’m working on it). But don’t come at me with negative comments, everyone starts somewhere!! I’ll always take constructive criticism though, or any tips or tricks! Okay, now onto the good stuff!!

First I applied Urban Decay primer potion all over my lid. Then I grabbed up my Jaclyn Hillx Morphe palette, which I love to use but hate using it because it is just so damn beautiful! OH YEAH!! If you didn’t get her palette yet she has another restock coming up august 22? I think? Well I’m pretty sure, so set your alarms and get your hands on this palette!! Using a fluffy brush I applied Creamsicle from my crease up to my brow bone. Then I applied Hunts in my crease and blended that into Creamsicle and down to my lid. I then blended Twerk into Hunts and applied it all over my lid. Ontop of Twerk I used a wet brush (I just wet my brush with the Too Faced 3 in 1 spray that I mentioned in my previous post) to apply Royalty on my lid and lower lash line. For the highlight I just applied Beam right under my brow bone and inner corner of my eye. On my lips, I’m wearing NYX Liquid Suede in Pink Lust. Actually before I started buying Kylie Cosmetic’s matte lipsticks, NYX was my go to for mattes, the formula, application and wear is great on them! And there you have it! Sunset vibes all over.

How fun right!? And I promise I’m going to really try to keep up on this blog, so hopefully I’ll have another look to serve to you all tomorrow seeing as I’ve just bought like 4 palettes from Morphe! What do you all want to see? Any requests?

Back to School / Fall make up

Guys I am so sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog, I feel awful. It’s birthday season here, and I swear like half of Chad’s family has an August birthday so, I’ve been a little busy with that.  Also I’ve been getting out more since the pain in my foot has gone down, and the weather has been just perfect lately. I just get so exhausted when I do go out that I feel like I’ve run a marathon and just want to sleep for like days straight, that might be due to depression but whatever hahaha! But I’ve gotten tons of things I want to share with you all, and I’ve been meaning to do a haul post but I am just waiting on one more package still 😦 I’ve seriously bought so much this month it’s almost overwhelming, and I just want to keep spending my money on everything so I need to cut myself off for awhile..if only brands would like give me a month to get my shit together instead of releasing new things.. I’ll keep dreaming.

Okay to the important stuff!! Today’s look I’m serving you is just something simple, but it works for fall, back to school, and when you don’t feel like going all out. falllook

First I just have to say, the more I look at this picture the more I hate it, but oh well. Also shout out to my man’s job for the geotag 😉  If anyone is in the Cleveland area PLEASE check them out, great made from scratch food, amazing cupcakes, great people and a great atmosphere!! Here’s a link for their site!!

For this look I just used #insta flawless from Rimmel London in the shade medium dark, it’s my go to when I don’t feel like doing a full face because it corrects your color, hydrates, and give you an incredible dewy glow, you can even use it as a primer!!  Apply a little bit of blush, I used the e.l.f cosmetics blush palette. Do your brows, I’m still in love with Benefit ka-brow! I think I even saw a video from Huda Beauty where she used it to contour her nose! Which is a great idea I love products with multiple uses!! Then you just mascara (Urban Decay Perversion is my go to) and line your eyes (I’ve been using Marc Jacobs highliner gel crayon lately, it just applies so niceand smooth). Grab up your highlighter (I’m still obsessed with the Anastaia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit) and make everything glow, brow bone, cheek bones, nose, cupids bow, tip of nose. Do it up ya’ll!! You can’t glow enough..am I right? Then when I’m all finished I used Too Faced Hangoverx 3 in 1 replenishing primer and setting spray to set my make up and give me a nice dewy look.  On my lips I’m wearing Kylie Cosmetics in Gorg, this lipstick doesn’t move at all. Seriously all day it stays on, you might have to reapply it once but that’s it. The only downside to this lipstick is sometimes it feels cakey and will crumble but nothing a little blot on a paper towel or napkin can’t fix. And that’s all for this post! I’m so excited for my next look. I used the Jaclyn Hill palette and…

Well I’ll just finish editing this post so I can just share it with you all. Seriously my next look I am so so so proud of. Hope you all are doing well! Till next time xx

Lazy Girl Make up

Hey everyone! Can you believe it’s August already!? Where the hell did summer go?! Not that I mind, fall is absolutely my favorite season, the colors, the smells, um pumpkin everything, boots, sweatshirts bonfires, haunted houses, and hayrides! I love fall..can you tell?!

First up I have the Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit. I bought this last week and have worn it every day since. The colors are gorgeous and buttery smooth, they don’t apply cakey and you can layer and blend colors together. Absolute perfection. I find my self wearing like 2-3 colors at once just to keep it interesting. I’ll do one color on my cheekbones, one below my brow bone, a different one on my nose and cupid bow, it really just depends on how extra I’m trying to be that day.

Okay so today’s look is my everyday go to look, when I don’t feel like doing my eye shadow or a full face of make up this is how i get down.

I just apply Rimmel #insta flawless all over my face, I’ll just use my fingers to apply it but make sure you wipe them off when finished because it is tinted and you’ll leave finger prints on everything you touch afterwards.  Then I’ll do my brows using Benefit Cosmetics Ka-brow! It’s my new favorite go to for my brows! Then apply eyeliner, here I’m wearing Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in BBlacquer. I just tight line my eyes and only go about 3/4 of the way on my lower lash line. Then mascara, I use Urban Decay Perversion, I seriously love this mascara it doesn’t clump my lashes together, and makes them long and beautiful. After mascara I just apply a little bit of blush and some bronzer where I would normally contour. Then I apply my highlight  (cheekbone, brow bone above & below, bridge and tip of my nose, cupid bow, and my chin) in the top picture I’m wearing Eclipse and Luna, in the bottom picture I went ham with Spectra because I wanted to glow purple like our waitress the other day.  When I’m all finished I used Too Faced 3 in 1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray. and boom, there you have it easy peasy.

Well that’s all folks, my next post will either be a haul post or my empties 🙂 til next time xx

Urban Decay Moondust Palette

Hey ya’ll sorry for my lack of posting, I’ve been unmotivated and physical therapy has been kicking my ass 😦 BUUUUTTTTT I’ve purchased so much this past week and I can’t wait to share it with you all!! My next post will be of everything I’ve purchased recently…maybe my next one, I’m still waiting on some packages.

Okay so, I hit up Sephora and made some impulse buys.. one of them being this beautiful palette. I totally fell in love with it after only swatching one color in the store I was like” Yep, its beautiful I need to buy it.”  Alsooo I hit up Ulta, only because they were out of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow  Kit at Sephora and well that turned into $200 later…hahaha.

First though let me tell you this story, okay so Chad and I went to dinner at a new restaurant out here called El Taco Macho. We walked in and the first thing I saw was the hostess’ (who ended up being our server) highlight!!! I have never in my life seen something so on point EVER. So naturally we walk in the door and I yelled (yes yelled because when I get excited my volume cranks to like 10) so I yell, ” OH MY GOD CHAD LOOK AT HER HIGHLIGHT SHE IS KILLING IT.  IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! No joke I wanted to bust out my phone and take pictures with her, but for Chad’s sake I didn’t. But, she was glowing this gorgeous  purple and it was just so beautiful and breath taking. . and that is how I developed a crush on the hostess/ waitress at the restaurant. Hahahaha.

Okay now onto the important stuff!! THE URBAN DECAY MOONDUST PALETTE!! YAY!!!

Okay so first impressions of this palette, I love it!!! The colors are buttery, creamy, so pigmented, and glittery almost duo-chrome like.  I know it doesn’t look like Specter is pigmented on my arm, but I promise you it is, you’ll see in another picture!! There’s not a lot of fall out with these colors, which is great, and they blend just beautifully.  I was nervous because I felt like I could see like the ridges in the bottom of the pan so I was afraid I would use it up fast, like it wasn’t a lot of product, but you really don’t need to use a lot to get a bright bold look.  I’m pretty sure you could apply this with your finger, but after swatching a lot more color sticks to your fingers. so I just opted for the wet brush route.

iphone 021

OH I ALMOST FORGOT!!  I gave up on Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow. I felt like all the colors I had were so dark, so I gave Benefit Kabrow! a chance, and I love love love it!!

For this look I used  Specter (told you it was pigmented!!) on the inner corner of my eye.  On the upper lash line I used Granite, outer corner I used Vega, and the bottom lash line I used Magnetic. I just used a small liner brush that I had gotten damp with water. I was only originally going to just do Magnetic on my lower lash but then I started playing and next thing you know I was balls deep in this palette and I had like 4 different colors on my eyes. Without using a primer this eye shadow stayed put all day, there was no creasing, or transferring of colors. If they ever release another palette like this one I will most definitely be picking it up

Alright ya’ll that’s it for tonight!! Till next time xx

Another Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Look!!

What’s up what’s up what’s upppppp!?!? I just got home from physical therapy, so I’m feeling good and motivated!!  I actually wanted to post last night but, my man got off of work semi early so plans changed. He’s a chef so I don’t get to see him as much as I would like to, so I like to give him my undivided attention when he is home. Anyone who has dated a chef or pretty much anyone in the restaurant industry probably understands what I’m talking about. Today I’m going to be serving you another look with the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette. I wanted to play with more of the shimmers so this is what I came up with!!

iphone july 2017 992

Okay so face routine…same as always, you can find it here .  It’s boring, I know…. I’m trying to go to Ulta on Monday and do some unnecessary shopping. Anything I should check out? Any reviews you would like to see? Maybe I’ll stop at some drugstores and Sephora too, so let me know!!

iphone july 2017 991

Okay now onto the fun stuff!! Prime your lids with Urban Decay eye shadow primer potion, I used to use a brush but I think it works better applying it with your finger, just a personal preference, do whatever works for you!! I used Pooter in my crease, using a fluffy brush just buff buff buff it out. Using a more dense brush I applied Obsessed all over my lid, and using the same brush I then applied 24/7 in my outer corner and blended it into my crease. Below my brow bone I used Kylie Cosmetics Kylighter in French Vanilla, I also applied this to the inner corner of my eyes. Mascara is Urban Decay Perversion, and eye liner is Covergirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact in Truffle.  On my lips I’m wearing Kylie Cosmetics in Okurr from the Koko Kollection.

ALSO!!! Speaking of Kylie Cosmetics..is anyone else excited for her next release!?! She reveals it in three days. I’m really am trying to save money…hahaha, who am I kidding. I just want it to be like a super girly pinks and purples and glitters. I’ll keep dreaming.

I think tomorrow I’m going to post a more colorful look. we’ll see how my mood is! I hope you all have a great weekend!! Till next time. xx
