Happy Spring Equinox! Today I have a gorgeous Spring 2014 release for you, the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette “In The Tropics.” It’s a gorgeous palette with ten baked eyeshadow shades in varying colors. Sephora really did a fantastic job of choosing colors for this palette because the shades remind me perfectly of a night in a tropical, exotic location underneath the moon. I decided to put together a spring look for you, as well, with lots of pastel shades that glimmer in the light. Come and enjoy the first official day of spring with me! (more…)

Holiday Makeup Look: Sparkling Gold Eye Makeup with Pink Glossy Lips!

I’ve been on a roll with holiday makeup looks lately. I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but I enjoy sitting down at my vanity after a long day and decompressing by playing with makeup. I decided to do a super lustrous gold sparkle look on the eyes with contoured cheekbones, pink blush, and glossy pink lips. It’s very feminine and this makeup will catch the light beautifully, sending sparkles in the way of anyone who is looking! I’m using a favorite product of mine for the eyes, LORAC 3D Lustre Drops, which are a revolutionary product that you drop onto the back of your hand and pat onto your eyelids for insanely beautiful sparkle. I’ve got the full look inside with all the products I used! (more…)

Holiday Makeup Look: Vampy Lips featuring MAC Cosmetics “Media” Lipstick

Since I’m going through all of my holiday makeup look ideas on here, I decided to include one of my favorite vampy lip colors, MAC Cosmetics Media Lipstick. I love MAC “Media” so much because it actually has tones of brown and plum in it, so it ends up being flattering on a lot of different skin tones. If you’re very fair skinned, fear not! These lip colors will work incredibly against your milky white skin tone. I know a lot of people are intimidated by vampy, sexy lipstick shades like this one, so I’m going to show you a look using it, and a full breakdown of all the products I used. (more…)

Maybelline Fall 2013 Runway Collection: “Autumn Dream” Eyeshadow Palette, Swatches & Makeup Look

I brought back my old tradition of “drugstore hopping” the other night, which is basically where I drive my husband crazy by visiting every drugstore in a ten mile radius to see what new releases they have. I finally found the Maybelline Fall 2013 Runway Collection which I had been on the prowl for. First of all, these Maybelline EyeStudio Eyeshadow Palettes and I go way back. From the very first month they were released years ago, I fell in love with how plush and pigmented they always are. I own almost every single palette in the permanent and limited edition collections and I think they are a home run when it comes to beauty bargain eyeshadow palettes. Autumn Dream is the palette that particularly caught my eye from the display because of the stunning jewel tones it has. (more…)

I recently saw the display with the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments and immediately my heart started beating faster and I wanted them all! I am a huge fan of the Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow pots, so I knew I would love the pigments. I decided to pick up one and test it first before I went buck wild. Today I have Improper Copper for you, which immediately caught my eye because I love wearing copper tones on my eyes. Copper tends to bring out my eye color and it still manages to be in the “neutral” family. I can wear it during the day and make it more dramatic for nighttime. Full swatches inside, as well as an eye makeup look using Improper Copper, (more…)

Natural Makeup: How To Achieve The “No Makeup” Makeup Look

My husband has been going through at-home training, so he was home today and we were able to go on a romantic little date downtown. We stopped to pick up our CSA share for the week, leisurely strolled the aisles of Whole Foods, and he even patiently waited for me to shop through Ulta! When I’m going out on an occasion like this, I like to do a “No Makeup” Makeup Look. Let me explain…men can’t always tell when you’re wearing makeup, so the point is to have the makeup be there but naturally enhance your features so it actually looks like you’re wearing very little. I give my eyes a very natural looking contour and glow on the eyelid, my cheeks are contoured with bronzer, and my lips get a naturally nude gloss. (more…)

Summer is just around the corner with Memorial Day weekend almost here (the unofficial start to summer). Bronzer is a must-have during the summertime.

Today I have three of the new Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzing Powders for you. Each gorgeous with their own depth of color and finish, there is something for everyone here. The best part is that these bronzing powders come with a drugstore price…so no breaking the bank! (more…)

Today was just one of those Monday’s where I felt like I was completely exhausted from the really busy weekend. I woke up and looked in the mirror, saw my tired-looking eyes and sallow skin and thought to myself, “How can I perk my face up today?” Fake it until you make it, right? This Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick in Ravishing Pink seemed to do the trick for me. It’s a really beautiful pastel pink shade that looks glossy on your lips, so the light seems to just be drawn to your face. It perked up my lips, brought a little sparkle back to my eyes, and made me look more awake. (more…)
