Deja Boo

 I originally did this look on 4/20 and I didn't take any pictures of it. So.. I had to wait and recreate it another time. It was also the first time that I tried out the new Milk Kush mascara which is bomb! This mascara has Cannabis oil in it but it doesn't have any THC properties so you cannot get high when you wear it. I have been wearing this mascara for at least 3 weeks now and I really love the way that it makes my lashes look and they don't feel like they have a ton of product on them and what's nice is you can layer it without it looking clumpy. Side note: the packaging is heavier than I had imagined it would be and you could definitely knock someone out with it.

Getting back to the eye shadows.. Colourpop had a beautiful array of unique greens in their Festival collection and they paired fantastically with the teal shades.


Here's my look:

Prelude to Spring

 One of my favorite palettes of the moment has to be the BH Cosmetics Festival Palette. It's just so pretty, pigmented and the colors are so fun! I still haven't tried using all the shades yet but I have really enjoyed using it.

Colourpop also came out with more of their Supernova shadows, which are more of the pastel variety. I find with a few of these that they can get a little patchy and it's best to layer them on top of a shadow that way they look a little more opaque. Prelude is a warm peach shimmer and worked great with this palette.

Special Delivery



A few months back Colourpop came out with their Spring collection of super shock shadows to bring the color back to Colourpop. The shades are all different colors and some I still haven't played around with. Special Delivery was the first one that caught my eye.. I tend to gravitate towards Orange and Mermaid colors. Special Delivery is an Ultra Glitter but it's the ultimate mermaid shade with gold glitters.

It Takes Two To Mango

Colourpop doesn't just slay me with their products but also the names of their products and the ones from their Festival collection are no exception. Two To Mango is such a cute name and on top of that it's a beautiful muted pink shade almost leaning on lilac. For this look I used all the coordinating blues and purple shades that I ordered, including this beautiful duo chrome shade called Fault Line.

I incorporated a new product from Colourpop into this look, their new satin blushes, which are so vibrant and fresh looking. The Winging it duo with the shades Whirl and Swirl, are the perfect pops of purple for Spring.

Still loving the Lux Lip formulation, Pinkie's Up is a beautiful rose nude shade, that's nice tone for those with fair skin.

I Flux With Felix

My favorite color in life is Orange, so I tend to gravitate towards orange lippies and get really excited about them.  Felix is a new Ultra Satin from Colourpop and it is such a stunning bright orange.. kinda reminds me of the Too Faced Liquid Lip in Mrs. Roper (which I also love) and I thought it would be kinda cool to add the Colourpop gel liner in Puppy to the mix, which is a bright orange but I only focused on the middle of the waterline and married the rest with a gold eye liner.

I got to use some more new super shock shadows from the Butterfly collection: Three's a Cloud, a goldie orange ultra metallic and Flux With You, which a light gold ultra glitter with silver sparkles.




Here's My Look:

SAG Awards 2018: Brie Larson

Today's look was inspired by Brie Larson's makeup from this years Screen Actors Guild Awards... yes I should have done this look months ago. Brie Larson was one of my favorite looks from the SAG awards this year. Her makeup artist Rachel Goodwin gave her this really cool navy and icy blue look. She used all Nars products, which I actually had one of them but in the powder form... Nars Orgasm which is a cult favorite.. I think I got this as a point perk cause it's the deluxe size but still very pretty.

With this look I got to use some of the new Colourpop pressed shadows from the Festival Collection Backstage, which is a matte cobalt blue and Bassline, which is an icy periwinkle blue shade. I really like how this look turned out.

Here's the look:





























Here's my look:























 Here's what I used:

EYES
  • Base- Cargo HD Picture Perfect Primer
  • Lid- I worked on the outside part of the lid first with Colourpop Luckfully with a flat shader brush and placed shadow Backstage on top. Then in the inner portion I used NYX Shadow Stick in Baby Blue and then mixed shadow Bassline and Meteor from the BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic palette on top.
  • Crease- just blended Backstage a little, but she really didn't have a crease shade.
  • Highlight- Purfect from the Pur Minerals X Boxy Charm palette.
  • Liner- On top I used Colourpop liner in DTLA, on the lower lash I used Luckfully on the outer part with Backstage on top. Then in the inner portion I used Baby Blue with Bassline and Meteor on top and Baby Blue in the water line.

Hi Suppose..

 It doesn't seem like Colourpop is going to slow their roll anytime soon.. they just cranked out a Festival collection and now they will be collabing with MakeupShayla.. which I will more than likely be picking up because I just saw the swatches literally two seconds ago and they are gorgeous!

Yesterday's look was very springy, because I live in MI and while I enjoy Winter.. it's still cold and snowing/hailing here at the end of April. I just want to see Spring! 

Still really enjoying the Festival palette from BH Cosmetics but I incorporated some super shock shadows from the Pretty Fly set. Up in the Air, which is this dark aubergine satin color and Soul-cialize which is really bright pink lavender shade which is an ultra-glitter and it really popped against the dark shade.

On my lips I used Ultra Satin in Hi Suppose. This color is so pretty!! It is a bright Magenta shade and it just makes a statement.

  • Liner- On the lower lash line I used Swag, with Up in the Air in the outer portion and Soul-cialize in the middle.
