Icey Blue Winter Makeup Look!

Hi beauties! Just wanted to post another quick Winter themed look today! I actually got a call this morning from my boss saying it’s a snow day and to stay home! How awesome is that? ๐Ÿ™‚ So the snow has brought me this icey-princess inspiration, let’s get started!

Today i used:

  • MAC Mineralize Liquid Foundation
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer
  • L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Powder Foundation
  • SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder (bronzer)
  • MAC Strobe Liquid
  • MALLY Base Shadow/Primer
  • Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black
  • SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara
  • Z-Palette: A couple blue shade variations & white
  • Milani Baked Blush in Bella Rosa
  • Salon Perfect Falsies
  • DUO Lash Glue

As you can see i used a few different shades of blue to create depth in this particular look. I also added a very small extra wing to my liner, while bringing it out from my bottom lash line as well as on top. This made my eyes look widerย and cuter. โค When using bright colors like these, use a shade lighter than your base color to blend things out. If you don’t have a lighter shade of blue, go ahead and use white and you can easily create the faded out, lighter blue look.

For my lips i applied a primer, then dabbed a silver shadow in the middle of my lips, then applied the same lighter blue color for filling in the rest of my lips, followed by lining key areas with a darker blue shadow.

I hope you all loved & enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading and please do leave comments and thoughts for me, i miss talking to you guys! โค

I find these products to be so interesting, artistic & cultural, and definitely something different for a MAC collection. As you can see there are gorgeous gel liner pots, quad shadow palettes, single blushes, special “garden of the soul” brushes & even more available in this particular collection. I have no doubt that girls will be buying these items up not only because of the eye catching & feminine packaging, but the colors and shades that are focused on are just so wearable and unbelievably glamorous at the same time.

“Chinaโ€™s most esteemed haute couturier, Guo Pei, brings her legendary elegance to a colour collection inspired by her โ€œgarden of the soulโ€, merging vibrant jewel tones with rich neutrals, punctuated by deep graphite. Featured are eye shadow quads in deep blues and honeyed neutrals, Lipstick and Cremesheen Glass in creamy pinks and corals to bright reds and luscious nudes. Eyes look exquisite in three stunning shades of Fluidline, while Beauty Powder provides the final touch. Pro Discount is not available.”

Fabulous Fall Versatile Makeup Look! L’Oreal NUDES 1 Palette!

Hi lovely ladies! Just wanted to start off by saying if i accidently unfollow and re-follow any of you beauties, it is a total accident and it has become a very frustrating issue for me! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I really don’t want any of you to think it is intentional, i do all of this on a smart phone so if i’m scrolling through your names and i happen to just tag the “follow” button it will un-follow you, but i try to fix it asap ๐Ÿ˜ฆ โค So my apologies for that girls! Anywhoo, i did another dress it up/dress it down look for you all today! It is inspired by the wonderful Autumn, and all things cozy. This will actually be a half fashion/outfits post and the versatile makeup look to go with it ๐Ÿ™‚ I know i have lots of fashionista’s follwowing me and vice versa, so i’m sure this will be fun for everyone! โค

Let’s start with the makeup look and products i used!

image

ย image

(Dramatic look shown above, used a darker blush and lip color and pulled my hair to the side in a loose messy bun with a flower pinned into it)image

image

(Much softer look with lighter lipstick and blush and hair let down naturally)

What i used:

image

image

  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer
  • SMASHBOX Color Boosting Powder “Halo Glow” (for bronzing)
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer NC20
  • MAC Moisture SPF Foundation
  • MAC Strobe Liquid
  • MAC “Pinch Me” Blush (not shown above, dramatic look)
  • MAC “Well Dressed” Blush (not shown above, simple & sweet look)

image

This is the L’Oreal LA Palette NUDE 1, and i used the four shades that are being pointed to with brushes! ๐Ÿ™‚ I used the first shade in my inner corner and first half of my lid, then i used the second color on the other half of my lid. The next color was used on my outer V areas, and the last color was used/overlapped in the same are but blended out nice & thoroughly. I love this palette and there are just so many beautiful colors you can use everyday or turn them into something special for an event! For the price you should absolutely have this in your collection! ๐Ÿ™‚ Blendable, silky & pigmented.

image

  • HIKARI Lip Gloss in “Merlot”
  • MILANI Lipstick in “Sangria”
  • Almay Liquid Black Eyeliner
  • BareMinerals Original Foundation “Med Beige”
  • MAC “Angel” Lipstick (not shown above, simple & sweet look)
  • Salon Perfect false eyelashes (just on outer corners, not shown above)

So this concludes the makeup part of this post. I hope you really enjoyed this and the products i used are all fantastic and i would recommendย everything to you! ๐Ÿ˜€


Now let me show you some adorable, comfy & classy outfits i’ve created to pair with these warm fall looks! Yay!

Pink and Playful Makeup Look!

So this afternoon i decided i wanted to do something fun and PINK for you all! I created one eyeshadow look, and used a couple different lip colors to show you how to quickly & easily change up this look and see what this would look like with different shades of lippies! ๐Ÿ™‚ It can be transformed into a bridal event look, a night on the town look, a lovely date look and anything in between! โค

image

This is my girly sweet pink eyeshadow look, with no lipstick applied at all here. I have naturally pink lips as you can see though so this gives you an idea of what this eye would look like with a nude/pinky or mauve type lip.

Here’s the same eyeshadow with a bright pastel ย & vibrant orange lip! This is obviously more of an extremeย pink and peach combo for going out or partying, maybe heading to a concert.. something of that nature. ๐Ÿ˜‰

image

image

These are all of the products i used, and the lipsticks in this particular “going-out” look are MAC’s “Sushi Kiss” in the middle of my lips and Milani’s “Sweet Nectar” on the outer parts!

image

image

  • Milani “Sweet Nectar”
  • MAC “Sushi Kiss”
  • MAC “Saint Germain”
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer NC20
  • MAC Strobe Liquid Lotion
  • MAC Moisture SPF 15 Foundation in NC22
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer (not shown above)

image

  • L.A. Colors Shadow Palette “Tease” (the pink shade)
  • FLOWER Bronzer/Blush Duo in “Glow Baby Glow”
  • L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow 24HR in “Iced Latte”

image

  • Neutrogena Facial Lotion for Sensitive Skin (always use this on a clean face before applying my makeup)
  • L’Oreal Infallible 16HR Powder in “Porcelain”
  • Almay Liquid Black Liner
  • Lancome Paris High Definition Mascara Black

Here is the eyeshadow look with a bright pastel pink lippie paired with it. This one is MAC’s “Saint Germain.” This one is still vibrantย but the lighter pink lip softens it up a bit for a daytime more formal event.

Thanks for reading ladies! Leave thoughts and comments for me โค Love hearing from you all!

Mini MAC Haul! Quick Swatch Review!

Hi girls! Super excited because i received a special package in the mail from MAC cosmetics today. I ordered a few different lipsticks to review quickly & show you all! I’m sure you may be familiar with some of them. I have repurchased one of these colors and the rest are new to my collection ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s get started!

image

image

image

So this is what i grabbed:

  • Sushi Kiss
  • Flamingo
  • Saint Germain
  • Heroine (repurchase)

And they sent me a free sample of the strobe liquid, i have a full size bottle of this but i like it a lot so i figured i might as well grab a sample for traveling or something.

image

Here are some swatches!

image

Sushi kiss, Flamingo, Saint Germain & Heroine.

Now let me show you them on my actual lips!

Sushi Kiss:

image

Beautiful & bright pastel, creamy peachy color! I absolutely love this one and was very excited to order it. And obviously these lipsticks are great & creamy!

Flamingo:

image

This is the most subtle color of the group, it just looks like a beautiful natural healthy pinky/peach glow on your lips, it is sooo pretty. I’m really glad i picked this one up.

Saint Germain:

image

This is a sweet pastel baby pink. I was worried it may be a little to light for my skin tone since i’m very fair, but it really is gorgeous and makes me look more tan and i’m definitely happy i got it! โค

Heroine:

image

Since i really had barely any of this color left, i obviously had to get it back in time for fall! This is a beautiful deep but vibrant orchid/berry type color, It would look stunning on any skin tone in my opinion! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks so much for reading my loves! Leave comments & thoughts<3

2016 MAC Selena Quintanilla Collection!

MAC has released some information about a collection coming out in the latter of 2016 to honor the vibrant and gorgeous Selena Quintanilla, 20 years after her tragic death. The iconic Tejano music star was shot in the back by none other than her own fan club’s president. Now, over two decades later MAC has revealed they will be releasing a special line in memory of her and fans are going crazy.

Rumor has it that Selena had always dreamed of having her own makeup line, and were all very excited to see MAC Cosmetics help make that dream become reality for her. Selena’s sister was quoted, “Helping create this collection takes me back to the late night chats on our tour bus, when she would talk about having her own makeup line.”

image

This is definitely a VERY highly anticipated collection and we are all very excited to see what MAC ultimately comes up with!
