Met Gala: Selena Gomez

I have been wanting to do this look for the longest time... I wore this look in October, for breast cancer awareness month and it's such a fun daring look! Selena wore this to the Met Gala this year and it was one of those looks that always stood out to me.

Also I had an opportunity to try out the new Covergirl Vitalist foundation through an Influenster Vox Box, can I just say I love Covergirl and I typically love their foundations and their products but their shade selection in this line is terrible.. their lightest shade is way too dark for my skin tone, which is a shame because I did really like the finish and would have repurchased in the future.



Here's the look:

Selena Gomez Met Gala Makeup


































Here's my look:




















Here's what I used:

EYES
  • Base- Colourpop Concealer in Fair + Full Zip
  • Lid- Colourpop On The Fence with Fair Play and Poodle on the outer corner
  • Crease- I traced Colourpop liner in Boots from the lash line to crease to carve out the shape. Then I placed Fair Play and Poodle on top.
  • Highlight- Colourpop Full Zip
  • Liner- On top I used Boots and then on the water line I used Lorac Pro Liner in Black, on the lower lash line I used Sauvage with On the Fence in the inner portion to lighten and make a little more pinky.
  • Mascara- Lancome Monsuier Big
CHEEKS
  • Primer- Smashbox Primer (purple)
  • Foundation- I was testing out a new foundation from Covergirl and it was too dark for my Skin tone so I mixed Cover Girl Vitalist with Too Faced Born The Way Foundation in Snow
  • Concealer- Colourpop in Fair
  • Blush- Lorac Beauty and The Beast Face Palette in Enchanted
  • Highlight- Algenist Reveal Luminizing Drops in Champagne
  • Bronzer- Urban Decay in Sun Kissed
LIPS
  • Colourpop Lippie Stix in Birdy

Yes Please, it's time for fall!

 I have been MIA for months.. because I just looked and my last post was in June.. oops!
Summer has come and gone and now it is towards the end of Fall and Thanksgiving is in 2 days.. I don't know about you all but this year has just flown by..I have been doing makeup looks and I plan on posting some within the next few days..

Colourpop continues to be on top of the game and since then they have had seven eye shadow palettes? This look is using their first palette and actually one of their most popular palette, the Yes Please palette, which is low key a dupe for the Natasha Denona Sunset palette.

I just can't justify spending money on a palette as pricey as the ND palettes and this Yes Please palette is only $16 dollars!! I mean you can't beat that and you get the quality as well with the colourpop shadows.


Here's my look:

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.

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.
