Recently I asked you guys which palettes you were most interested in seeing first- & the Viseart Dark Mattes #04 was a standout! Which is perfect timing! I definitely have a review coming up soon but I wanted to share this eyeshadow look I’ve repeated quite a few times recently during fall. Because-oranges!!! Keep reading to check out more photos & see which shades I used! [Read more…]
I’ve really been missing sharing my favorites! As some of you may remember, I used to post youtube videos. Then I stopped. I’m still getting ready to get back into videos & I’m hoping to be ready for 2017! In the meantime I’ve really wanted to start sharing my favorites again. I’ve done lots of reviews & tutorials lately but favorites let me share updates & seasonal discoveries. I have a ton because I have finally started feeling more like myself this month!

Because eyeshadow palettes are life right? No but really- eye palettes are my favorite makeup item to seek out season after season. Red lipsticks make me smile. A gorgeous highlight makes me swoon. But an eye palette make my world turn. Today I’m sharing 9 limited edition options you can get your hands on right now. With gifting & sales around, now is the time to make your list. I apologize in advance if I make yours longer…just kidding I have zero shame which it comes to makeup enabling. [Read more…]
I really wanted to save this palette until I had used it quite a bit- & now I have! This Smashbox palette here is one that is my absolute go-to for travel so when I saw this…well it was basically made for me! I love palettes like this for when I am in a hurry or, like I said, traveling! I did have one mishap- I lost the brush somehow! Sorry about that! You can see more information on this double-ended brush here. I have several brushes from Smashbox that I love so I’m sure this one is fab too. Anyway- enough rambling! Let’s get into the review!
Ipsy & I have had a tumultuous relationship lately…but I’m trying to get better about sharing it with you! I’ll admit right off the bat I’m pretty happy with this month though! Again I’m kind of bummed the Ipsy cards are lackluster in the information department…but I’ll tell you about the products myself below! [Read more…]
November was a pretty exciting month for me I must admit. We found out we finally get to move onto our next base- & it was one we wanted! I’m prepping to travel to California in January for both IMATS & quality family time. It has been bitterly cold but lacking snow- less work for us! I’ve also come upon some awesome new products, some older favorites, & just lots of beauty finds all around.
I’m a big fan of changing up my look which can be seen all over the blog. I tend to bounce from rainbow eyes to neutral & back again. Everything is pretty so why not give it a shot right? With the recent 20% off beauty sales & such I’ve also picked up some new items. & there are way more I haven’t even shared on the blog yet- so that is something to look forward to! Besides the lip colors, I wouldn’t say these items scream fall which is fine with me. [Read more…]
I’ve made a major error & I need to apologize. I’m so sorry I’ve fallen in love with a palette that has already sold out online except for Amazon. I tend to try & review items for longer than most apparently & not I’ve waited too long for this rave review. Trust me when I say you need to get your hands on this palette.
The Smashbox Master Class 3 Palette is limited edition & the first in the series I’ve picked up. The other palettes were pretty but just not what I was looking for. They weren’t as pretty as this one from what I can remember & something about the packaging just wasn’t right. They weren’t as travel-friendly which is important to me for when I actually travel. This palette contains 32 eyeshadows & 6 face products…& they’re gorgeous! Keep reading to check them out! [Read more…]
Have you ever picked up a palette & immediately thought of a certain season? The Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette is limited edition for Fall 2014 which is just so fitting- this palette is so stunningly autumn. I wish I had reviewed it earlier since it is sold out at a lot of retailers- but I will list some it is still available at below. This palette is everything & I included my favorite eyeshadow look along with it! Keep reading to see swatches, my thoughts, & a truly easy fall look. [Read more…]
Smashbox is one of my favorite brands to buy from around the holidays because they usually put together fabulous sets at an impressive value. This year I picked up three of them: Smashbox On the Rocks Always Sharp Liner Set, Smashbox On the Rocks Be Legendary Lip Gloss Set, & the Smashbox On the Rocks Photo Finish Primer Duo. All three sets are beautiful, different, & full of savings! Keep reading to see swatches & my thoughts! [Read more…]
I normally try to do lots of Halloween tutorials…but this year it has been crazy busy. With the new site & lots of life stuff I haven’t gotten to share as much as I’d like. Today, however, I get to show you a tutorial I absolutely fell in love with! I used a variety of products (all broken down below) but it doesn’t have to just be Halloween either. The eyeshadows I used mainly are from the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette which I’ll be reviewing soon- & this look is just a favorite! Love my purples! Keep reading for the products & application tutorial! [Read more…]
