On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink! 

Juvia's Place Mini Masquerade Palette and ColourPop x Hello Kitty Lock Diary Ultra Matte Lip

Happy hump day, girl! For most people, holiday season is a time for rest, relaxation, plenty of good food and quality time with the family. That isn’t always the case if you work in retail, though. I’ve been busier than ever lately and haven’t had much time to play in all my new makeup like I want to. Now that we’ve got past Christmas, things are slowing down a bit and I have a little bit more time to crack open my new goodies.

One of the first things I reached for was the Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Palette. It has a gorgeous mix of neutrals and bold brights in a variety finishes from matte to foiled. I needed a little pick me up this week so I decided to skip the neutral look and go all out with pink lips and eyes this week. And since I was all pinked out I figured I’d share the look I created with you today. 😊

Time to Get Vampy!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Mahogany, Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Deep, Anastasia Beverly Hills Potion Liquid Lipstick, Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

The second I start to feel a little chill in the air I’m instantly ready to break out the boots and vampy lips. In the blink of an eye, I’ll go from glossy, bold lips and sandals to Uggs and a super deep vampy lip. That’s right. This girl doesn’t do grey areas! When fall first hit, I was really feeling the fall vibe with some warm neutrals. Once the temperature started to drop a little I decided to slip into something a little more vampy like a plummy smokey eye and a blackened plum lipstick.

Shimmering Eyes & Nude Lips are Perfect for Fall

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Mahogany, Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Deep, MAC Highlight the Truth Mineralize Skinfinish, MAC Taraji Glow Mineralize Skinfinish, MAC Strip Me Down Lipstick on Dark Skin

It’s officially fall and I’m kinda digging it! I’m not gonna lie though. I was happy to break out my boots and leather jacket but I mildly freaked out when the temperature nose dived and it started getting too cold. I love a good fall breeze but I live for mild 70 degree weather where I can comfortably rock boots, warm eye looks and a good caramel nude or vampy lip. That’s my kinda fall!

Still Obsessing Over the MAC Chris Chang Collection

MAC Chris Chang Collection for Summer 2016

Anyone else still drooling over the MAC Chris Chang Collection? I know I’m not alone here! Initially, I purchased a few products from the collection solely because the packaging is beyond gorgeous and I had a $10 off discount code. Once I finally got my hands on my new Chris Chang goodies I developed such a strong love for the collection. Not just because the packaging is amazing but also because the actual products turned out wonderfully too. I don’t have a bright yellow matte shadow in my collection so I jumped at the chance to bring home Royal Woo Eyeshadow which I knew would be a great lid color for spring and summer. Rich Coral Cream Colour Base can easily be duped in my collection but orange blushes are so easy for me to wear so I went ahead and tossed it in my cart too. It’s a bit sheer but I like that I can easily build up Rich Coral for a soft, natural flush of orange that warms up my complexion and gives me a nice luminous glow too.

Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection Inspired Look

Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection: Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick, Telluride Pot Rouge, Telluride Eye Shadow Palette

Don’t you just love fall collections? There’s warm, cozy shades of gold, pink and bronze everywhere that makes me feel all fuzzy inside of my oversized cardigan. One of my favorite fall collections this year is Bobbi Brown’s Telluride Collection because it’s loaded with warm hues that mimic that beautiful sunset of the Telluride, Colorado skies.

Shades like tawny pink and deep bronze take center stage to help you transition into fall effortlessly. There’s a handful of new and limited edition pieces to drool over in Bobbi’s Telluride Collection but I couldn’t keep my eyes off the Telluride Eye Shadow Palette, Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick and Telluride Pot Rouge for Cheeks & Lips. I loved them so much I that I just had to order them and whip up a warm fall inspired look for you guys.

MAC is Beauty Inspired Look

MAC Alpha Girl Beauty Powder, MAC Shade Fluidline and MAC I Get No Kick Eye Kohl from the MAC is Beauty Collection

Happy Saturday guys and gals! It’s a beautiful sunny day out and I just wanna play in the sun and some new makeup. Unfortunately, I work late tonight so I won’t get to frolic too much today but I did get a chance to finally try my MAC is Beauty Collection goodies and I’m so in love. So in love! I’m already a big fan of MAC’s fluidlines so I knew I’d love Shade but Alpha Girl and I Get No Kick turned out to be amazing too. I Get No Kick is pure heaven on the waterline and looks even more amazing applied to the tear ducts for a bright eyed look. And Alpha Girl? Holy crap! That stuff has a golden glow that’s so, so gorgeous! I almost want backups of both!

MAC Moody Blooms Inspired Eye Look

Many MAC collections have come and gone this year but Moody Blooms seems to be the one that inspires me the most. It’s just something about those sultry jewel tones! Thanks to some incredible will power I only ended up with a blush and fluidline. The eyeshadows were so beautiful and tempting but I noticed I have similar colors in my stash. I figured I’d whip up a quick Moody Blooms inspired look to have a little fun and keep me from ordering more stuff. Hopefully this works!

Quick CCO Haul

I don’t think I can describe how happy I was when my mom decided she wanted to go to the outlet mall. The first thing that popped into my mind? CCO! The Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) sells discounted Estee Lauder brand makeup including Clinique, Bobbi Brown and MAC. If you’re ever in search of a limited edition item from a previous collection CCOs are a great place to start!

Face of the Night

I don’t usually make New Year resolutions but this year I vowed to try to go out more often. I’m so young but I hole myself up like an old lady LOL! Last week I decided to get my butt out of the house and go out for a night on the town. I wasn’t going anywhere special so I didn’t go all out but I did doll up a bit for the fun of it. Check it out!
