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.

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:

On Wednesdays We Wear Wednesday

 I have been really bad lately when it comes to taking pictures of my eyes.. I am so sorry guys!  I will try to get better but the next few posts are going to be full face. A few months back Colour pop dropped some new liquid lip sticks and they were all based off the days of the week and I think I purchased 4 or 5 shades out of the 7, Wednesday was great because it was the color pink and duh you have to wear pink on Wednesdays right?

I used another old favorite of mine the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette which is still so good and awesome quality. Also I'm sure I have said this before but Satin Sheets makes a gorgeous highlighter as well as an eye shadow and today I used Totally Fetch as a blush.

I don't know if I mentioned this before but I have been using the Fiona Stiles contour palette for a while now and I have been loving it! I've been using it with the NYX Fan brush which just blends everything out like a dream!

Here's my look:

Movie Premiere: Priyanka Chopra's Mermaid Look


I was never a huge fan of the tv show Baywatch, the only time I really was exposed to it was when I was over my friends house and we would watch some episodes after school. Then there were talks about a Baywatch movie last year and to be completely honest I was not into it at all.. it was nothing to do with the cast because the Rock is great, I love Priyanka in Quantico, and Zac Efron is pretty good in comedic movies so eh it would have been fine but just didn't feel necessary.... but I have changed my tune every since I saw the trailer, because this reminds me of 21 Jump Street, which is one of my favorites and again a movie that no one had asked for... bottom line is I am waiting to see this movie when it comes out next week!

I was so taken with Priyanka's makeup at the Miami premiere, it's so beautiful and magically mermaid like. I used only a few shadows to complete the look granted most of them are discontinued from Colourpop which is a bummer but really you could use any shadow to recreate the look.

I still haven't changed my opinion about the Lorac I Love Brunch palette.. but I do like the pastel looks for Spring. I used again my Sephora Modern Watercolors palette to achieve this look. The Cargo Swimmables liner in Lake Como really made this look pop.
