What color eyeshadow makes your eyes really pop? I know there are all kinds of posts & ideas out there telling you all about that. But which color makes you really notice your own unique eye color? For me- it is purple & copper. I absolutely love the way my eyes look with both colors! But today I want to talk about this coppery eyeshadow look using all Urban Decay eyeshadows- especially from the Afterdark Palette ( I swatched & reviewed it here with a purple makeup look!) so keep reading to check it out!

Pigments have always had a special place in my heart. I discovered really cheap formulas when I was in middle school but they were absolutely the best. Back in the day, the drugstore just didn’t have very many good eyeshadows. Discovering pigments opened up so many options. Granted…I probably should’ve have been allowed to rock baby blue metallics as much as I did…but that is in the past. Today I’m talking about the Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Pigments– they’re incredibly stunning & the formula is pretty flawless. Keep reading to see all my shades! [Read more…]

But I could never do it!” then this is the post for you! [Read more…]
What are you up to this year for New Year’s Eve? Normally we celebrate in a pretty laid back way- but of course I like my makeup to look FIERCE!
When I think of NYE, I always want to bring out my best features. You’re probably thinking, “Stephanie, shouldn’t that be all the time?” & okay you might have a point. What I mean is that NYE tends to be the closest I get to “clubbing” since we’re such lame 20-somethings. I love the lighting & the glitz- much of which tends to reflect highlighter like the best spotlight ever. Using some items from the Mirabella Beauty Faerie Holiday Collection, I’m going to demo how to really get your glow on & especially make blue eyes pop- because that’s what I love to do.

Too Faced came out with these beautiful palettes a long time ago…& I’ve just been sitting around on them. I know- shame on me. I have had these for a really long time because my husband gifted them to me as a surprise…but I haven’t got an excuse for why they haven’t made it onto the blog yet! Both palettes are beautifully packaged, have nice pigmentation, & are oh-so-summery! Keep reading to check out the Too Faced A La Mode Palette & the Bonjour Soleil Palette! [Read more…]
Ever fallen in love with a look so hard that you just repeat it over & over? I have been absolutely obsessed with the look & color combo so don’t be surprised if you see it in upcoming videos & such. With the humidity completely settled in & here to stay I’ve been looking at more comfortable/effortless skin & long wearing, comfortable makeup on the rest of my face. Keep reading to see how Laura Mercier makes this look possible! [Read more…]
When it comes to eyeshadows from the drugstore, the Maybelline Color Tattoos are easily some of my favorites. I wear them as eyeshadow bases nearly day to day & also wear them on their own. When I heard they were coming out with pigments…I was ecstatic. I LOVE pigments! These are the first true mainstream/drugstore pigments I’ve tried that weren’t some form of sheer. After reading some reviews I picked up 7 shades. I have since picked up all but one! Keep reading to see my swatches & thoughts! [Read more…]
