Too Faced Country Palette Makeup Look



I recently swatched and reviewed the new Too Faced Country Palette here. I decided to put together a look for the blog, as I always do, so you can see the shades in action and how pigmented they are. I was especially impressed by the purple-grey shade in the palette because it’s so unique. I put together a smokey eye that differs from your traditional shades and looks more on the smokey blue and grey side. What I love most about these shades though is how the colors look slightly different depending on the lighting. Full tutorial and more pictures inside, (more…)

Too Faced Country Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review



I recently featured the Too Faced Rock n Roll Eyeshadow Palette which is part of a new release of palettes by Too Faced. The other half is this gorgeous Too Faced Country Palette, which is all about Nashville Nudes and southern culture. This palette is, in general, much more soft and for someone who likes more neutral, cool-toned shades. I fell in love with this palette after swatching it and can honestly say that both this palette and the Rock n Roll one are fantastic in quality and pigmentation. I’ve got full swatches and my thoughts inside, (more…)

Shimmering Black Smokey Eye with an Orange Crease!



Today I decided to sit down and have one of my epic “random makeup sessions.” When these moods strike, I sit down at my vanity and just start grabbing products, shades, and colors that come to me. I don’t think too hard about how I want it to look but more-so what kind of mood I’m in. I love a good smokey eye. Smokey eye makeup is sexy, sultry, and looks good on everyone. I do like to mix it up though and do different shades and combinations, so I created this shimmering black smokey eye with an orange crease. It’s an unexpected pop of color and warmth to the eyes, and if you’ve got blue or green eyes, it will really help them pop. It’s super simple to recreate and requires only two shades of eyeshadow to achieve! Full tutorial and product list inside, (more…)

Milani “Bella Blue” Collection Swatches & Review



When I got the press release for the Milani Bella Blue Collection, the first thing that I thought was, “Wow, they have guts!” It’s a compliment of course, since so many drugstore brands refuse to put out edgy shades and products. I love when I go into a drugstore and look at the beauty displays and see something that REALLY catches my eye that is different, unique, and quirky. To me, that is what cosmetics are all about…expressing yourself. The Bella Blue Collection features 3 colored mascara’s, a nail polish, and a lipstick all in gorgeous shades of blue. Swatches and thoughts inside! (more…)

It’s a different take on the classic smokey eye and it will make any eye color stand out. Full tutorial and details inside, (more…)

NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows, “Callisto” & “Subra” Swatches, Review, & Look



I cannot even tell you how much my eyes lit up the second I saw the press release for these brand new NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows.

There are twelve shades total, and I have Callisto and Subra for you here today. Both are absolutely stunning and do not fail to impress in terms of formula and pigmentation.

“The Lady is a Vamp” Makeup Look, featuring Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in ” 916D – Ravin’ Raisin”



I was having a moment the other day when I just didn’t feel like slapping on another shade of coral, pink, or nude lipstick. Sometimes in the spring and summer I just like to go completely off the wall and do a nice dark, vampy, sultry lip. It’s unexpected and it can be incredibly sexy when done right. I chose a shade in my collection that is very affordable, so everyone can go out and find it. I used Wet n Wild’s MegaLast Lip Color in 916D – Ravin’ Raisin. It’s this really rich, opaque brownish-violet shade that is quite flattering to a variety of skin tones. I often hear many people say they are intimidated by a dark lip like this one, so I’m going to show you what I paired it with and give you some tips and tricks. (more…)

Red Lipstick Look & Tips featuring MAC Cosmetics “True Love’s Kiss” Lipstick



I recently picked up one item from the new MAC Cosmetics Maleficent Collection and that was the one lipstick, True Love’s Kiss. What is it about red lipstick that is so classic and alluring? I have plenty of them in my collection, but I couldn’t pass this one up because it seemed so pigmented, creamy, and bright. I put together a Maleficent-inspired makeup look to go along with the lipstick: simple brown eyeshadow that is shaped into a cat-eye to elongate the eyes and add to the sexiness of the look. I have full details inside, (more…)
