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:

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.

Baby Talk

After finally playing catch up for a couple months, hopefully I will be posting on here regularly. This look was done with Colour Pop's Super Shock Pigment in Baby Talk, which is a really rich red pigment. It's not advised to use these pigments on the eyes but I used it as a liner and I didn't have any issues with it.

I also used the Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette, which I still really love using and I paired the look with Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Pookie Bear, which is a beautiful bright coral shade.

Grammy's 2017: Lady Gaga

Oh man I am so late in posting this look.. but I was blown away by Lady Gaga's look at the Grammy's this year! Red I feel while now on trend, it's one of those risky colors but it's also such a fun color to play with on the eyes and if you are not careful you can look sick, which I'm sure I have made the mistake of looking before.. lol

Dupes: Lorac I Love Brunch Palette

So Pastel palettes seem to be all the rage right now, with the Kat Von D Pastel Goth palette and then Lorac comes out with The I Love Brunch palette and while yes pastels for Spring isn't anything new but when I saw that this was coming out I was interested in at least swatching it because the pastels where pretty and the bright aqua shade was really speaking to me.. however looking at the setup of this palette it reminded me of another palette that I did purchase last year, the Sephora + Pantone Modern Watercolors palette.  You look at these two together they have the same shades..  so no I didn't need to purchase this palette.  I actually swatched it while I was working and I have some pictures to share with you guys..

Ok me being ghostly pale, the pigmentation sucks on these shadows, there is maybe 4 or 5 shades that are workable but that's not enough for me to purchase a $44 palette. If you want to purchase this you will need to use a white base to make the colors pop and really build up the colors.. I still had to do this with my Sephora Modern Watercolors palette..

Displaying IMG_0623.JPGDisplaying IMG_0624.JPG

Also I tried a new mascara from Butter London and I hate it.. it's called Iconoclast and it makes my lashes so clumpy (you will see in the closeup)



Something new I tried and I like is the new Bare It All foundation from PUR and I quite like it. It's thicker but it really gives off a nice natural, skin look. It doesn't look cakey and I applied it with a Artis dupe brush that PUR came out with and I like it more than my Moda brush.

PB and Honey Palette

After months of seeing this palette being teased on Instagram, I knew I needed it in my life. I was lucky because I used a 20% off coupon plus I had $11 dollars in Ulta rewards so I bought it as soon as it was released to platinum members. Then I anticipated it's arrival to my home and when it finally came I opened the box and the packaging was so adorable. I opened up the palette and all the colors were so pretty and eye catching.. and then I swatched it...  Where is the pigment Too Faced? Why aren't the colors showing up on my ghostly pale skin? One of the colors Creamed Honey is my exact skin tone, so actually that color works great for an all over base but the rest of the colors were so disappointing! I had to wet my brush and keep layering the Going Nuts shade..What happened? Why aren't these better quality like the other 9 pan palettes because all of the other ones I have are fantastic. I think after this I'm taking a break from Too Faced shadow palettes...

I Need a Play By Play

I have been just loving the Colourpop pressed eye shadows and in the second batch of new colors they came out with a lot of cool green shades. Checkmate is a matte seafoam green shade that is just so unique and Sideline is this really awesome duo chrome shade that is green with a purple/burgundy shift. Play by Play is another duo chrome but this one is more of a peach color with a green shift. I also used a color called Team Captain which is another matte shadow but it's a deep forest green shade.

I also purchased one of the new Creme formula lipsticks, I find these to be one of their best formulas of lippie stix because they are so comfortable and creamy and just sit really nice on the lips. Sure Thing is also a really lovely nude shade.

SAG Awards 2017: Emily Blunt

I don't think I have talked about the new California Dreaming palette from Lorac yet... but it's actually pretty great. I really need to do some swatches.. I just never have time.. lol

I wanted to do a look inspired by Emily Blunt's rose gold look from the Screen Actors Guild Awards, it just look really fresh for Spring, and it was a work day so I got to try out some of our new products.
We had a sale on Bliss Color products so I picked up the Bliss Staycation Foundation and I don't know how I feel about it yet, it has a really beautiful finish and lasts a long time but I think it may have broken me out, I will to try it out again because I really do love Bliss products.

Another new edition to the California Dreaming Eye Palette is the Cheek palette which I think the colors are gorgeous, which a light hand I could wear the highlighter, the bronzer/highlight shade is a little too dark for my skin tone so I will probably use it for an eye shadow. The two blush shades are also really pretty.

Grammy's 2017: Adele

Adele was queen of the Grammy's this year. Which would be no surprise to anyone. She slayed with Hello all year round and continues to make just really great music. I really loved Adele's look and wanted to create something similar. I pulled out an old friend for this one, the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette and a new product which I think is one of my favorite products at the moment and it comes from Flower Beauty. Flower Beauty is Drew Barrymore's makeup line, you can purchase Flower Beauty products at Walmart. The product I was so blown away with is her Face Palette in Light.  It consists of a Bronzer, Blush and Highlight and the highlight it so breathtaking, it's so smooth and buttery almost like a cream product, there's no glitter just a really beautiful sheen.

I also mixed a new lip shade called Bare Necessities from the fairly new Colourpop X Alexis Ren collection with an OG lip shade called Vice which is also and Ultra Matte lippie but way too light on it's own.

I Pinky Promise Love Muffin


 Colourpop recently, the week before Valentine's Day, came out with a Valentine's Day Collection. I think besides the 90's collection a couple falls ago, it might be one of my favorite collections. They came out with a quad of super shock shadows, a ton of new pressed powders, a mini lippie set, a pigment and single super shock shadow and a highlighter.

For Valentine's day week I really wanted to rock some pretty pink looks and these items really took me there.. I also incorporated my Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts palette, which was only appropriate..  and the Colourpop highlighter Tough Love is the perfect pink, where its more of a champagne pink, just gorgeous! I also used the shades in the One of A Kind Duo Set- Pinky Promise which is a stunning wine shade in a metallic finish and Going Steady which is a deep wine shade in a matte finish. They really compliment each other nicely.

For the lips I used one of the Ultra Satin lips from the Short and Sweet mini collection called Love Muffin which is a lighter pink shade and I topped it off with Sugar Lips a glossy lip shade with a lot of multicolored glitters but not chunky or gritty on the lips.

Lady Gaga: Super Bowl Look

Now you know I had to do a look inspired by Lady Gaga at the Superbowl... and a month later here it is!! haha

I was rooting for the Falcon's this year because it would have been cool to see someone who is not Tom Brady win.. but as the fates would have it the Patriots dominated the field. I'm not a huge fan of football in general although my family are avid Lions fans, which I will never understand why.. I was more excited to see the half time show because you really never know what to expect with Lady Gaga and what her performances entail... I actually really liked her performance medley of hits and she really danced her booty off, but more importantly than all of that her makeup was impeccable. Her makeup artist Sarah Tanno really did an amazing job with her overall look. It made her look like such a star and she looked stunning!! Luckily Sarah shared with us the beauty breakdown on Instagram and she used all Nars products, I only had one of the products she used and it was only because it was a Sephora birthday gift last year.. otherwise my interpretation is pretty affordable.

I used mostly Colourpop pressed shadows which are fairly new to my collection and I have to say I really enjoy the formula of their shadows, very pigmented. NYX also came out with new pigments and while I was over at Ulta I had to try them out, you know for.. science. I picked up two shades, Froyo which I used in the look today it's a really lovely lavender/pink frosty shade and then another called Vegas Baby which I haven't used but it looks like a golden silver glitter bomb in the best way possible!

I also tried out a new primer, which I had gotten as a Sephora sample, the Smashbox Pore Minimizing primer (the purple one) and I'm kinda impressed with how well it filled in my pores.

Holy Trolls!

You guys I am so obsessed with the new Trolls eye shadow palette by PUR!  When I first saw the release for this I was a little underwhelmed and thought it wasn't something I would have been into because the Cinderella palette wasn't terrible but I am not a huge fan of the PUR shadows in the Selfie palettes but this one is pretty impressive, I'd say the pigmentation rivals the Anastasia Beverly Hill shadows, dare I say that! This palette is so much fun because while it's more of a normal palette it has these beautiful pops of color. Poppy is an intense shade of pink that I adore, DJ Suki is a bright orange, Guy Diamond is this beautiful duo chrome shade... I seriously need to do swatches on this palette..

Lorac came out with 6 new satin lip sticks in really cute names, still very fitting with the "alter-ego" branding. I actually bought two of the six shades in Snow Bunny and Granny and oh my goodness these lip sticks are so creamy and moisturizing and I find they actually stay on for quite sometime.


Side note, well maybe not, because it's about Trolls still but I just recently saw the Trolls movie and it is so freaking adorable I can't even handle it! It's funny and random and I'm all about it!
