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.



Here's my look:

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.

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
