Tutorial | Every Day Makeup

Hello my loves!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic day! Today I'm sharing my every day makeup routine with you all. This is my go-to look when I'm not recording a tutorial or when I don't know what look to do.
For this look I am using a lot of products that can be multi-use such as concealer, face powders and bronzers for the eyes because it cuts down on the amount of products I need to use.


Holiday Look #3 | Christmas Blues

Hello my loves!

Today's post is another addition to my holiday makeup series. This look is incorporating different shades of blue and some pops of silver.
For this look I pulled out my BH Cosmetics 88 Color Cool Matte Palette (discontinued I believe). I used just this palette to achieve this blue smokey eye with a light pink lip.


Holiday Look #2 | Cranberry Smash

Hello my loves!

Today's post is the second look in my holiday makeup look series. This look is a cranberry semi-smokey eye with a pop of orange in the inner corner.
I am totally loving this look because it can be worn during the day or evening. To a family party or the club. It's very wearable, but still bold and bringing attention to the eyes.


Tutorial | Zendaya Inspired Brown Smokey Eye

Hello my loves!

Today's post is a Zendaya INSPIRED makeup look, not a recreation. Yes, I'm aware that it doesn't look exactly like her makeup, but I love this look nonetheless.
I decided to play around with my MUFE Flash Palette for the lips since I don't own any brown lipsticks. I enjoyed this look and loved how it came out.


Holiday Look #1 | Rihanna Inspired Gold & Plum

Hello my loves!

Today's post is the to start of my Holiday Makeup looks series. This first look is a gold and plum eye look inspired by Rihanna. This is a very simple, yet glam. You can pair this with a bold lip, a nice dress or even a casual outfit.
I really wanted to play with my Lancome eyeshadow in All That Glistens because I'm obsessed with their lustrous formula shadows. I love how the plum pops out from the crease and accentuates the gold on the lid.


At Home Manicure

Hello my loves!

Today I'm sharing with you all how I do my at-home manicures. I have not been to a nail salon in over 2 years simply because I love painting my own nails. I have now "mastered" the art of doing my own manicures. 
This was a request from Teisha922. She follows my vlog channel and wanted me to share how I do my nails over on my beauty channel.

The magenta nail polish I had on before taking it off is L'Oreal Colour Riche in Violet Vixen.


Tutorial | Night Time Makeup: Purple Smokey Eye

Hello my loves!

Today's post is a collaboration with the beautiful Brittany Jones on YouTube. We are collaborating in a day time and night time makeup look. Her look is a beautiful day time look and mine is a night time look. Definitely go check out her tutorial and her channel!
I went for a purple smokey eye for my night time look using Lancome eyeshadow (yes, I know. I am slightly obsessed). Purple is just a fun color to use because it's playful, sexy and can be worn for many occasions. I paired it with a bold purple lip for full on bold glam. I also did a nude lip for those who prefer to keep their lips more natural.

I seriously had a ball creating this look and using this palette from Lancome. I can't wait to do more looks surrounded around this palette.


Tutorial | Neutral Pink Makeup

Hello my loves!

Today's post is yet another awesome collab with another awesome YouTuber. This a pink lipstick makeup collab with the beautiful Tahara from Tahara's Lounge. Go and check out her video and subscribe to her channel.
We decided to create a makeup look surrounded around a pink lipstick. For my look, I decided to go a bit more neutral on the eyes and make the lips pop. Instead of picking Mac Candy Yum Yum (favorite pink lipstick) or even a drugstore lipstick, I decided to go with a beauty supply store lipstick. I went with Beach Fuchsia (#800) by Nicka K.

Using this lipstick reminded me of how much I love Nicka K and a good pink lip!

I purchased everything with my own money from either Walgreens, Walmart or Rite Aid.


Tutorial | Kat Graham Inspired Makeup

Hello my loves!

Today's post is a recreation on a look that Kat Graham had on for an editorial shoot. I loved the combination of the plum and purple with a light lid. It screams daytime glam to me.
I definitely have more celebrity inspired looks coming!

 Next week there will be a Zendaya inspired makeup look coming :)

This a real easy look to do. Just grab you a nice olive green and a brown or two and let's get to glamming! Hope you all enjoy this look!

Tutorial | Gray Smokey Eye

Hello my loves!

Today's look is a gray smokey eye! I have been dying to use this gray eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown to create this look and I'm in love with how it came out.
This is a very simple look paired with a nude lip, but even a red or pink lip would go great with this look. I have worn this during the day and evening and it was perfect. It's not too dark  and blunt like a brown or black smokey eye, but it's still looks amazing on the eyes.

Check out the tutorial!


Tutorial | Inglot Bronze & Plum Smokey Eye

Hello my loves!

Today's post is a tutorial surrounded around Bronze, Plums and Burgundy shades. Another fall inspired smokey eye that's wearable for the day time. I decided to play around with my Inglot eyeshadows again because they are soft, smooth and buttery on the eyes.
I paired this look with a bold purple lip to bring in the plum/burgundy shades in the crease. I love how it makes the eyes have a more purple feel to them even with the bronze on the lids. You can always pair this look with a nude lip, a brown lip, a pink lip or whatever color that floats your boat.

Check out the tutorial below!


Tutorial | Fall Leaves Smokey Eye

Hello my loves,

Today's look is inspired by the beautiful colors of fall leaves. I love the combination of orange and burgundy on the lids. I paired this look with a bright pink and burgundy ombre lip, but you can always rock a nude lip with this look.
The pictures are not the best quality, but I still wanted to share photos of the look with you all.


Webster's Pages Color Crush Planner Setup

Hey my loves!

Today I'm here to share with you all my setup of my Webster's Pages Color Crush Planner in Light Pink. I have had it for about a month and a half now and I'm ready to share it with you all.

Everything in this planner was personalized by me because I took a bunch of the inserts out to use for next year. Hope you enjoyed this! New setup coming in January.


Skincare Haul | Lancome, Simple and Clean & Clear

Hello my loves!

Recently I picked up a few new skincare products to try out because I needed to restock on moisturizer and cleansers. I am huge believer that no matter how good your makeup looks, if your skin isn't taken care of your makeup won't be at it's best potential best.
I decided to scout my local drugstores for some products that I've been eyeing so such a long time and I was pleased to have found them for great prices. First, I had to repurchase one of my favorite serums ever especially since I had two coupons to use.

I had to go to my local Lancome counter and grab the Lancome Visionnaire advanced skin corrector serum. I fell in complete love with this serum back in 2012 when I started working for the Lancome counter at my local Macy's. I have fallen in love with Lancome skincare products this was a definite keeper for my vault. The price of the serum can range from $79 USD to $145 USD -- expensive to me. However, I had two coupons AND my old coworkers swung me a great deal so I snagged one up while I could.

If you're not familiar with the serum, Visionnaire [LR 2412 4% - Cx] is a second generation serum with the Double Jasmonate Complex and new smoothing ingredients that correct wrinkles, pores and skin texture in real time, and over time. Since using it since 2012 my skin has looked and felt so smooth and my texture has been a dream.

Eye Cream


Tutorial | Blue Brown Duo Chrome

Hello my loves,

I wanted to start making use of my Wet n Wild palettes because they are stunning and since I have so many I figured I could do two to three tutorials using each palette. This tutorial is the first one using the Comfort Zone palette. It's full of greens and browns. I wanted to really use the brownish blue duo chrome eyeshadow because it's simply stunning. It is a dead on dupe for MAC's Club eyeshadow or their Blue Brown pigment.
I wanted to create a subtle smoky eye that is wearable for both day and night. I paired this with MAC's Candy Yum Yum lipstick because I just wanted that extra pop of color. I love how simple yet dramatic this look is. It can be paired with a nude eye for work or a red lip for a night out.

I do plan to create two more looks using the comfort zone palette because it's such a pretty palette. Hopefully you all enjoyed this look as much as I enjoyed creating it.


Webster's Pages Color Crush Unboxing

Hello lovelies!

Finally after waiting almost two months for my beauty to arrive, she has come and I'm so excited to share her with you all. My brother purchased me a Webster's Pages Color Crush planner in Light Pink for my 24th birthday. The order was placed on June 29th at Blue Moon Scrapbooking. They didn't get their shipment until August 17th, so it was shipped the same day and arrived on August 19th.
I absolutely love my planner! She is such a beauty that I'm even going to name her, but I have no idea what yet. I purchased the Light Pink kit and I'm highly impressed with it. I paid $34.99 plus $5.99 for shipping which made this planner around $41 USD. They are also sold with just the binder, but I thought the kit would be better to use.

The Webster's Pages Color Crush planner kit is an 18 month planner with both month and week on two pages. The binder is an A2 size (comparable in height to a medium Kikki-K or personal Fiolfax just slimmer). The planner has gold rings, the leather is smooth and soft, and there are other inserts with the planner...including some cute diary stickers. You get a today marker, top loading envelope, two dashboards, two clear overlays, a note pad, vellum cover quote and 5 gorgeous dividers.

Planner Haul #9 | MAMBI Haul

Hello loves!

Today's planner post is about my all new Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) products! I decided to dive in and get the Happy Planner from the Create365 line by Me and My Big Ideas for 2016. I was debating between this and just getting another Erin Condren planner, but I decided to go along with this planner and I am so happy I did!!! I ordered my planner and accessories from the MAMBI website because my local Hobby Lobby was cleaned out. I did however get two things from my Hobby Lobby.

Tutorial | Cover Girl Red Revenge

Hello my loves!

Today I am back with a makeup tutorial focused on CoverGirl's Outlast Longwear Moisture lipstick in Red Revenge. I was sent this to review in my I Do Voxbox from Influenster. I love a good red lip, but I hardly wear them as often as I should. Red lipstick is just so versatile and can stand for power, confidence and even be sexy.

Red Revenge is a true blue-based red with a bit gold flecks in it. It's very smooth and buttery when applied to the lips. I don't have to tug on my lips. Shockingly it doesn't feather either which is perfect for any red lip in my book. It last a long time without drying my lips out or moving all around the place. I am a huge fan of the new CoverGirl Outlast Longwear Moisture lipsticks and will definitely get my hands on a few other shades.
I decided to do a matte neutral eye that was a bit smoky to pair with this lip and I think it came out great (minus my brows). I decided to pull out some well loved, but neglected single eyeshadow to complete this look.

This look is very easy to do with only three eyeshadows and quick for any time of day. Whether you're a beginner or experienced this look can be accomplished. You can smoke it out further for the club or lightened up if you prefer something light and airy.


First Impressions | CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation

Hello my loves!

Today I am here to share with you all my first impression and review of the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation. I received this product in my I Do Voxbox from Influenster for review. I wanted to get this foundation ever since I found out it was released because I'm a huge fan of CoverGirl foundation Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation which gives a matte look, so I wanted to see if this would do the opposite -- give me the glow and great coverage.
Initial look | After eyes and lips done.
CoverGirl says the following about their newest foundation:
Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation’s oil-free, non-greasy formula gives your skin a natural luminosity that lasts all day! Perfect for achieving radiant skin, this all day foundation hydrates skin while providing flawless coverage.


Planner Haul #7 | Hema Washi Tape & Sticky Notes

Hello my loves,

I am here to share with you all some new goodies I got from the Netherlands. I ordered a bunch of Hema products from 4 different shops on Etsy…mainly washi tape and a few sticky notes. I am completely obsessed with them and definitely plan to get my hands on more Hema products when I can.
I have been dying to try out some Hema products for a while and finally caved in to do so when I had the chance. Hema products are not sold in America so I had to order from somewhere reasonable and Etsy seemed like the place to go.

Skinnygirl Tasy Nutrition Bars

A delicious treat for brides! Keep your energy levels up on your big day with this wedding day essential. Available at all Target locations and Target.com. Price is $4.99 USD. 
The flavor they sent me was Chocolate Almond with Coconut and because I'm not a huge fan of coconut I didn't eat it, but my sister and my mother shared it and they fell head over heels with it. They said it tasted sweet, gave them enough energy and didn't seem like your traditional nutrition bar. I have tried other flavors and I must agree. This will definitely be in my wedding day kit.

Skincare Review | SK-II

 Hello my loves!

I recently did an unboxing of some SK-II products that I received for review courtesy of BzzAgent (click here) and now I'm back to do my full review and final thoughts of the products I received. I have used these products for a total of 7 days now and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you all.

I received the following in my kit: 1 fl oz bottle of the Facial Treatment Essence, 1 full size of the Facial Treatment Mask and a 0.51 oz container of the Essential Power Cream. The mask was great for one use. The Facial Treatment Essence has enough product to last me another 4 or 5 days. The Essential Power Cream should last me another 2-3 weeks depending on how I use it; either once or twice daily.
When I first received these products I was totally ecstatic about it because I've been dying to try some SK-II skincare products. I have heard so many great things about this brand and I'm a sucker for great skincare products.

Before I began into my thoughts on each of the products I want to share some quick information on the brands essential ingredient:
It all began with a stunning realization at a sake brewery in Japan. Over a decade of exhaustive research later, SK-II discovered Pitera™ — the secret to crystal clear skin 
This miracle ingredient is at the core of the revolutionary products SK-II offers. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is a liquid concentrate with 90% Pitera™ in every bottle. SK-II Facial Treatment Masks deliver an indulgent concentration of Pitera™ in a single application. SK-II Essential Power Cream contains Stem-Acanax and Pitera™ to radically improve firmness and reduce wrinkles. Your future isn’t limited by your DNA. With the right regimen, you can change your skin’s destiny. 
I must say that I am absolutely obsessed with their products. I cannot explain how much joy these products bring me. The results where quick, my skin feels hydrated and it's just a match made in heaven.
I have used these products for a week with having a dry patch on my face due to an insect bite and this not only added extreme hydrating which stopped the dryness, but also healed the mark unbelievably!

Keep in mind: I have only been using these products once a day in the morning, but it is recommended to use them twice daily. If I was using these products as instructed I am pretty sure the results would be even more outstanding.

Facial Treatment Mask

The first product I tried out was this mask and I will say I was completely iffy about trying this out because I have never tried a cloth mask before. I'm more of a clay or gel mask kind of girl. I, however, was completely stunned with how well this felt after getting adjusted to the cloth on my face.
This is a luxurious facial mask with an indulgent concentration of Pitera in a single application. Your skin is immediately and exceptionally immersed in moisturization, resulting in a visibly radiant and crystal clear complexion.


BzzAgent Unboxing | SK-II Products

Hello my loves,

Today is a great day! I am sharing with you all my unboxing of some SK-II products I received thanks to BzzAgent. I have been eyeing SK-II products for a very long time, but their prices had me double guessing the products. I am so glad they had this campaign with BzzAgent because now I can try them out and give you all my thoughts and feelings on these products.

I received these products free from BzzAgent in exchange for a review. I am not being compensated for my thoughts and opinions. They are all my own.
I have never been so excited to unbox skincare products in my life before, but this has definitely filled that spot. These SK-II products are trial size products that will last about 3-6 weeks depending on how sparingly and how often you use them.

The products in this box are as follows:

Tutorial | Mint & Chocolate Halo Eyeshadow

Hello my loves!

Today I wanted to play around with some color and I really wanted to try out the halo eyeshadow look, so I came up with this simply glittery mint and chocolate brown look using some products I haven't used in a long time.
I totally enjoyed creating this look for you all because it encompassed some oldies, faves and things I've totally forgotten I had. I hope you try this look out on your own!
