Ariana Grande: One Love Concert

Oh Ari, you are one of these people that I can't stand but the more your humanity and compassion for others comes out, I excuse your diva attitude and like you more and more.. You put together such an amazing concert.. What happened in Manchester was terrible, and you really went the extra mile for your fans and the people who were affected by this awful event.  It was uplifting and you could feel the love through the screen.

I was not only captivated by your kindness but also your highlight.. girl, your makeup was absolutely stunning along with Katy Perry's, who makeup I also plan on recreating that day... but Daniel Chinchilla knocked it out of the park.. her highlight was so golden and glowy.. if you didn't see it in HD you didn't get the full blinding beauty but omg it was everything!!! So nice work Daniel!!

I used a couple of favorites to create the look along with some limited edition items from Colour Pop's Birthday Collection which was Blow Me Out which was a gorgeous bronze highlight but I used it as an eye shadow mixed with another limited edition super shock shadow also from Colour Pop which was called Utopia, one of their mixed shades, more of a bronze/rose gold.


Here's the Look:

Priyanka Chopra: Metallic Look

So as we are rolling into July, which means we are just a little halfway done with this year.. woah.
I turned the elusive 30 years old last month and we went and saw the movie Baywatch. Although it's not the greatest movie of all time, I will say it's exactly what the show was and doesn't take itself too seriously.. I think the Rock and Zac worked great together and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie as a whole, it's a fun summer movie. 

With that in mind I have been following Priyanka Chopra through her Instagram and seeing all her beautiful red carpet fashion and makeup and this metallic look really caught my eye. I had just purchased the new Skinny Dip palette from Jouer and it is absolutely stunning! These shadows  are so pretty and foil beautifully but the work best when applied with your finger. Star Light was such an impressive shade for me that just looked out of this world..

What Unicorns Are Made Of

I have never tried Zoeva products before, they weren't a brand that was really in my radar. I saw a Trendmood post about their new Sweet Glamour Palette and it looked so pretty and springy and I was very hesitant to purchase a pastel pallet, especially after passing on the Lorac I Love Brunch Palette.  I actually really enjoyed using the Zoeva palette, the colors are light but they are still pigmented.

You definitely can't do a unicorn look without a fun highlighter! I decided to go with What Unicorn's Are Made of from Love Luxe Beauty, it's a beautiful multi-colored highlighter but still gives the cheeks that rainbow swirled effect but light enough where it's still wearable.

For the lips I used one of the new Colourpop Ultra Metallic lips in Dirty Birdy, which is a great light pinky metallic and popped that right in the center of the lips.


Here's my look:

Coachella: Lady Gaga Look #2

Here's another totally awesome Lady Gaga look from Coachella weekend. I loved how futuristic it was and I loved playing with a duo chrome in the center of the lid and Voltage by Makeup Geek is such a magical color. Then you get that playful bright blue color on the lower lash line, it's quite a different combination.. kinda reminds me of my school colors to be honest.. Go Wolves!

Another palette I have been using constantly is the Too Faced Mini Chocolate Chip palette which I love using the matte colors for different transition shades but I love and both hate how small the palettes pans are, but the palette itself is quite pigmented.

I finished off the look with the color Cougar which was from the Colourpop Sundays In Silverlake collection two years ago  but it's a beautiful matte Fuschia/ Red shade.which would still be appropriate for this summer

Coachella: Lady Gaga look #1

I know Coachella was like months ago, but nothing topped Lady Gaga's makeup during the festival. The first picture I saw of her was on her makeup artist Sarah Tannon's instagram and I was stunned.. that pink eye line goodness was just everything and it didn't make Gaga look sickly, she also added a some flower artwork to her face which I decided not to do.

I just started using the new Covergirl Total Tease mascara and at first I thought it was gonna be so gimmicky with the weird wand, one side is normal but the back side has these tiny pick-like bristles and it actually does an awesome job and makes my lashes look so good!! One of my favorites at the drugstore right now.

Lorac Pirates of The Caribbean Dead Man Tell No Tales (swatches and pictures) Palette

I cant help but be one of those people that can't understand why they keep making Pirates Of The Caribbean movies but yet when movie themed makeup comes out  I go bananas.. This is exactly what I did when Lorac launched the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. This palette is really nice, I will say the packaging is massive but the quality of the shadows make up for it. Now if you are deciding what to get from this collection as a whole go for the cheek palette.

Colour Pop Spring: Nectar

 Colour Pop went the way of Too Faced with the Peach colored products, which is fine by me because I love peach tones especially in the spring it's very fresh! I am still pretty into the Colourpop pressed shadows, I think they are great dupes for higher end shadows! In this look I used the Blow Me Away palette with a few select other peach shadows in the line. I was super excited that they brought the super shock shadow Flipper back, because it's such a soft orange but it has silver sparkles to make a huge impact. Take a Break is one of my favorites because it's such a beautiful peach/gold duo chrome and it looks great as an inner corner highlight. Issues is a great matte peach transition shade and Centerfold and Cut Outs are great bold mattes as well.

I added Ultra Satin Lippie in Botanical to the peachy mix, which is a really bright peachy coral look which I love wearing during this time of year.

Here's my look:
