Blogmas Day Twelve: Christmas Day Makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe we’re already at the end of Blogmas, it truly flew by. For Day Twelve I thought I would share with you guys what my Christmas Day makeup is going to look like. I usually mention it every year, and this year it took me a little while to decide what I wanted to do. I like to do a little glam but not full glam for Christmas Day because we have a very relaxing day and chill in our lounge wear and I’m happy with what I came up with.

The first thing I did for this look was prime my face with the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Primer. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed with the Nars Laguna Bronzer. Then I applied the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo Blush in Lychee and highlighted with the Too Faced Angel Kisses Highlighter.

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette and the first shadow I used was Desert Sand. I took that and put it in the crease. Then I took Amber Sky and also put that in the crease, making sure to blend well. I then took Dusk and packed on the outer corner of my eye. For the rest of my lid I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and applied the shade Snow Fake. I then took Dusk and ran it about halfway under my eye and for the other half and into the inner corner of my eye, I applied Snow Fake. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips, I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with the MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank everyone for reading along this Blogmas, I had such a great time doing it. It’s always one of my favorite things to do. If you guys have figured out your Christmas Day makeup I’d love to know what you’re going to do and if you go makeup free on Christmas Day let me know that too, I’m always interested in what people do. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Ten: Holiday Makeup Looks

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten! Today I thought it would be fun to share some festive makeup looks that I’ve done during December. This is in the style of my Recent Looks posts and you know I always love to do those. For these looks I wanted a theme, so I went with festive colors and decided on green, red, gold and silver.

The first look I did was the green one and this has very Christmas tree/Grinch vibes depending on how you want to look at it, but I really love how this came out and it was fun to play around with green because I don’t always do that. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Primer. Then I applied my Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

IMG_0096

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. I then used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo Blush in Lychee and highlighted with a mix of the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette

IMG_0098

IMG_0105

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills/Norvina Mini Pro Pigment Vol 2 Palette and put the light green shadow from the top row, middle, in the crease. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette and packed the shade Theme Park on the outer corner of my eye, into the crease a little, and onto the lid a little more than I normally would. I then went back to the Vol 2 palette and took the green shimmer from the bottom row, middle, putting it on the rest of my lid. I then took Theme Park and ran it about 3/4 of the way under my eye, putting the green shimmer the other 1/4 of the way and into the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with the MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the red look I went for candy cane vibes without being super candy cane and I really like how it turned out.

Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Primer in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette and took the shade Camping and packed it onto the outer corner of my eye and the inner corner of my eye, bringing it into the crease in both cases, and left a space in the middle of my lid. To fill that middle space I went into the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette and used the shade Bitter Start. I then took Camping and brought it about 3/4 of the way under my eye and for the rest and in the inner corner I applied Bitter Start. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. For my lips, I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with a mix of the MAC Matte Lipstick in Red Rock and the Sephora Collection #LipStories Lipstick in 23 Cabin Fever/After Hours.

The second to last look, the gold look, is one that if you red my Dito Cosmetics post or follow me on Instagram you would have seen because I did it quite a bit during college football season. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Primer. Then I applied the Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara.

For the last look, the silver look, I wore this for a neighborhood Christmas party so I wanted to be more glam and I love this one. It’s so cute.

Then I applied the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach

I took the shade Slate and put that in the crease, then I took Noir and packed that onto the outer corner of my eye, bringing it into the crease just a little bit. For the rest of my lid I applied Cyborg. I then took Noir and put it about halfway under my eye, then I took Cyborg and put it the rest of the way. For the inner corner of my eye I wanted a little bit of brightness, so I applied the shade Pearl. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips, I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with the MAC Matte lipstick in Russian Red.

Blogmas Day Seven: What Makes This Movie Great, It’s A Wonderful Life

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today we’re going to be talking about Christmas movies and more specifically It’s A Wonderful Life.

It's a Wonderful Life - Where to Watch and Stream - TV Guide

If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s a 1946 film with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, directed by Frank Capra. The basis of the movie is George Bailey (Stewart) gives up his personal dreams to help his community, comes upon some issues and hard times and jumps off a bridge. He’s saved by an angel, his guardian angel, who is trying to get his wings and that angel, Clarence, then shows George what the town and the lives of his friends and family would be like if he hadn’t been born at all and didn’t exist. George seeing this, realizes that he wants things to go back to normal and that things are pretty damn great. 

It’s such an incredible movie overall. It’s tradition in my family that on Christmas Eve we all go to my parents house, have dinner and watch this movie, so I’ve been watching it since before I can remember. 

There’s so many quotable moments from it and it truly never gets old. They do have both black and white and color versions of it available now, but having watched both, I can tell you that the black and white is so much better. It really brings home the classic and nostalgic feel. 

I mentioned that it’s tradition in my family to watch this movie on Christmas Eve, but the thing to that is no one watches it any other time. It does come on TV around this time but we all hold off so we can watch it together and have it truly be a once a year thing. Also the commentary that inevitably happens is more fun and funny if it’s the first time in a year that everyone has seen it. 

There are obviously a ton of great movies to watch during the season, but this one, for me, really makes it feel like Christmas and gives me all the cozy feels. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any similar movie traditions let me know what you watch and if not I’d love to know what your Christmas Eve traditions are. 

Until next time, have fun watching movies, I’m glad you’re enjoying Blogmas and invest in the plastics George :).

Blogmas Day Five: Christmas Tree and Decoration Spotlight

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Five! Today I thought it would be fun to show you guys my tree this year and to talk about decorating.

I think you guys know this, but if you don’t, I have a real tree. There’s a local tree fam that I go to that I love. I found it a couple years ago after the one that I used to go to stopped being in the Christmas tree game and since then I haven’t gotten a tree that I didn’t absolutely love. The care they take and the way they shape their trees is top notch. I really like the tree I got this year, it’s the perfect fit and it smells amazing.

IMG_9908

I don’t have any new ornaments this year, and I can’t remember if I mentioned it last year, but I got a new tree topper. The other star I had quit working, so I found this one and I like it a lot. It adds a nice little pop of color to the top and it ties in perfectly with the lights, because as you guys know, I do my tree in multicolored lights. I also have to get a new tree skirt because mine ripped when I was putting it away, so if you have any recommendations of a good place to get one, let me know!

IMG_9973

Another thing I wanted to share is a new decoration I got this year. I’m always looking to add more or update decorations and this year I was really looking at window lights. I found the cutest light and let’s be honest, most perfect for me. I love all the little details. The snow on the tires, the ‘Happy Holidays’ on the tree. So cute! 

IMG_9856

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any new decorations this year I’d love to know what and I’d love to see what your trees look this year. 

Until next time, have fun decorating and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas :).

Blogmas Day Two: Gary Barlow Christmas Album Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Two! Today we’re going to be taking a look, doing a little review of a new Christmas album, The Dream of Christmas by Gary Barlow.

I really like the album cover, it’s got that very Gary Barlow mix of being classy and in this case obviously Christmas without being over the top. This came out at the end of November, so I’ve had the chance to listen to it fully a couple of times. The track listing reads as such;

1). The Dream of Christmas

2). Sleigh Ride

3). Wonderful Christmastime

4). How Christmas is supposed to be (featuring Sheridan Smith)

5). This Christmas

6). Come on Christmas

7). My Dear Acquaintance

8). Winter Wonderland (featuring the Puppini Sisters)

9). The Colder It Feels (featuring Sheku Kanneh-Mason)

10). Merry Christmas Everyone

11). A Child’s Christmas in Wales (featuring Aled Jones)

The deluxe version has the following five songs as well;

12). I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

13). I Believe in Father Christmas

14). In the Bleak Midwinter

15). It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

16). Christmas Sweater

With this album Gary does a great job of not falling into what some artists do when they do Christmas which is to do the songs with just a little bit of their personality attached to it. This is very much a Gary Barlow Christmas album. The arrangements are unique and give some of these songs a new perspective. The arrangement he did on Merry Christmas Everyone is incredible, it’s so soulful and beautiful.

The original songs are brilliant in my opinion. I think Christmas Sweater is my favorite, it’s really fun and so far everyone I’ve played it for has liked it a lot. I think there’s also something to be said for How Christmas Is Supposed to Be, the video is super cute and it really touches on how stressful the holidays can be and to remember to enjoy it and have fun.

Overall I’m glad Gary decided to do this album. If you are a fan of Take That and haven’t listened to much of his solo music you will like this and if you’re a fan of his in general you’ll really like this. I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t, it will make you feel super festive.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve listened to this album I’d love to know what your thoughts are and what your favorite song/songs are.

Until next time, have fun listening to Christmas music and I’m glad you’re all enjoying Blogmas :).

Blogmas Day Four: Why This Movie Is Great: White Christmas Edition

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Four! Today I have something a little bit different, a few weeks ago my friends and I were having a lively debate about Christmas movies (Home Alone 3) and there was a definite divide between the two sides. One thing that was agreed upon when I brought it up, at least by the people who have seen it, is that White Christmas is one of the best Christmas movies, so I thought I would talk about why I think it’s great.

IMG_6782

White Christmas was released in 1954 and stars Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen. This was actually a big deal when it came out because it was the first film to be released in VistaVision. I think one of the things that immediately drew me in the first time I saw this movie, I think I was about 10 years old, was that it starts in 1944 during the war because, as a self proclaimed history nerd, that’s one of my favorite time periods. And from there Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye team up and start taking over the entertainment world. I’ve always thought that Bing and Danny were the perfect pair for this movie, they balance each other very well. 

When they meet Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen, they, after some trials and tribulations, basically start down the road of becoming a double act and end up in Vermont together. Where there’s more trials and tribulations, including romance and what always comes with romance in movies, confusion, but it all ends well as an incredible show is put on, a beloved General is surprised and couples are formed (I’m team Rosemary and Bing for favorite couple, but I want to know what you think). 

At the core of this movie is the music, all of the music is incredible. There isn’t one song that I don’t like or I think doesn’t belong in the movie, and yes, I do have all the songs pretty much memorized. The dancing is also fantastic and it really helps to bring the musical scenes together. 

The costuming is on another level for me, the costumes for the Sisters number with the blue dresses and the fans will always be iconic but for me, the ultimate costumes are the red dresses at the very end when they sing White Christmas. To this day I still want one of those dresses because they are incredible and I feel like everyone needs to own one. 

I found out that White Christmas is on Netflix, so I will be forcing all of my friends to watch it during Discord movie night, because everyone needs to experience the magic and wonder that is White Christmas. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I’d love to know what your thoughts are on White Christmas and I’d also love to know what your favorite Christmas movie is. 

Until next time, have fun watching Christmas movies and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas :).

What I Got For Christmas 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way trying to brag, I’m one of those people that enjoy reading and watching this type of post. This year I didn’t have a real list of things I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides my favorite candy, there was a Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar mist and body lotion. It’s my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Along with that there was a little flashlight, I love little practical things like this and you can never have too many flashlights. The last two things that were in my stocking were a mini Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder infused with peach and sweet fig milk and the Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach.

WIGC1

I used the setting powder yesterday and today and I really like it. Added bonus, it smells like peaches. The lipstick also smells like peaches and it’s a comfort matte, long wearing and also infused with peach and sweet fig milk. Too Faced lipsticks are always really pigmented and this one is no different. I believe there are 13 shades of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few more.

WIGC2

WIGC3

Continuing on with the beauty theme, the first thing I unwrapped was the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party set. I was honestly so, so shocked to see this because I had mentioned it in a text to my mom like right after it came out then didn’t say anything after. I was considering buying this for myself as a Christmas gift but it was sold out on Sephora and Too Faced when I looked but for whatever reason I didn’t check at my local Sephora and they had a couple left which I’m super happy about. I’m going to be doing a separate post on this, so I’m not going to get into it too much, but I will say that yesterday I wore a couple of the shadows and I’m really happy with them. It was a good makeup day.

WIGC14

WIGC15

The second beauty item I got was the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Lip Stories Lipstick Set. This is also going to get it’s own post, but I will say that I’ve swatched all of these, wore one on Christmas Day and I’m wearing one now. I’m really liking them and I recommend them.

WIGC13

Next up we have a fashion item and it’s this light powder pink shoulder bag from H&M. I have a few different handbags and clutches but nothing like this. Like I said this is a light powder pink suede with silver hardware and leathery handles. It has a snap closure, one medium sized pocket on the very front, the main compartment and another pocket inside the main. You can adjust the way you wear it, so if the handles are the same length then it’s a shoulder bag, but if you stretch it out you can wear it like a crossbody. I didn’t realize when I was taking the pictures that it was a little crooked but that’s because of the pull on the door and not that bag.

WIGC9

WIGC10

WIGC11

WIGC12

Moving on we have a couple of practical things. The first is a 2020 Erin Condren Planner. I got my first Erin Condren Planner last Christmas and it was an absolute game changer, so I knew I had to have one for the new year. This will be getting it’s own post, but I did go for a different pattern, different colors and I put my first and middle name on it.

WIGC6

WIGC7

The second practical gift I got was a calendar. I have a couple of calendars that I use for different things and sometimes they’re different sizes but this one is my main calendar. There are two or three themes I typically go for when it comes to calendars, this one is jet themed. And has some great pictures.

WIGC4

WIGC5

And the last thing we have is music related, and it’s the Doobie Brothers Live From The Beacon Theatre Blu-Ray and CD Set. I talked about this when it came out, I have it on my phone and they showed a little bit of it on PBS. I like to have a physical copy of music, hence the CD Set and if I can help it I buy all discs in Blu-Ray. So I’m excited to have a music night and watch the full concert.

WIGC8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did also receive some socks, because it’s not Christmas if you don’t get socks, and a mug but it’s currently in the dishwasher because I used it this morning.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: Christmas Nails

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already the last day, it’s been more stressful this year I will admit, but it does feel like it’s flown by. And I will probably be doing it again next year. Today though, I’m going to be showing you the nails that I did this month. Every December I do festive nails and I find it to be a lot of fun, so let’s get into it.

The first week was a little strange because it was right after Thanksgiving and my Thanksgiving polish was still fresh but it kind of fit in so I left it.

SEPT1

What I used was the Sinful Colors, 2621, Nakey Nay and the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat. Super simple but really pretty.

CHN1

The second manicure I did was in keeping with the simple theme and very wintery and it’s matte white nails. I did forget to take a picture, but what I used was the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails 110, Hard To Get and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat.

CHN2

For the third manicure this was when I started to get more into the design and I did snowflake nails. But I did them differently than I normally would, so I did one big snowflake on my ring finger and on the rest of the nails I did a bunch of little snowflakes.

CHN5

To do this I used the Salon Perfect 207, Blue Ribbon, Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Fine Tip Pen in 360, Pearly White and the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

CHN3

And the last manicure I did, the one I have on now, is present nails. I do this one every year because they’re super cute, very festive and easy to do.

CHN6

To do this, I used the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I, Pure Ice 1626, Hit The Floor, Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Fine Tip Pen 380, Red and Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

CHN4

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys did festive nails this December I’d love to know what designs you chose.

Until next time, thanks you all for reading the 12 Days of Blogmas. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Seven: Christmas Day Activities

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today I’m going to be talking about some of my favorite Christmas Day activities. I’ve mentioned this before, but on Christmas Day my family has a really chill day and it’s pretty much always been that way. I do my makeup on the more glam side, do a simple hairstyle and put on some cozy loungewear. We take our time opening presents and just enjoy ourselves.

After the present opening there’s a good amount of time before dinner and after everyone has messed with their presents it’s only natural to want to fill that time with something, so for us it’s always been games. As my siblings and I have gotten older the games have changed, but now we have our favorites.

One of my favorites is darts. This is a newer addition to the holidays but I think it’s one of the most fun. I highly recommend buying a dartboard if you don’t have one because it’s a great game and kids and adult alike can have a lot of fun with it.

Something I try to do at least once during the holiday season is put together a festive puzzle. I love puzzles always but especially during the holidays because it’s such a cozy thing to do. And the festive puzzles are so cute and have great pictures.

Ever since I was a little kid and I know before I was born, my parents would buy my siblings a new video game or video games. That tradition has continued on as we all have consoles and love to play games, there are some we play team up and play together and others only one of us will play. But on Christmas day one or multiple of us will open up a game and we’ll all play.

The last activity we have is dominoes. On Christmas night after dinner we all gather around and play dominoes. This is something we’ve been doing for years and all have a lot of fun with, especially because we’re all a little competitive with each other but there’s always so many laughs.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have any games you play with your family on or during Christmas I’d love to know what they are.

Until next time, enjoy your traditions and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Six: Christmas Day Makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Six! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through and that there’s only two weeks until Christmas. Today I’m going to be showing you guys what my Christmas day makeup is going to be. I like to decide what I’m going to do beforehand, so on the day I can just pop it on and have a chill day. For a while I’ve been doing gold eyes, but this year I wanted something different and this is what I came up with.

So, the first thing I did was moisturizer my face with the Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I really like this, it makes my face really soft and it gives me a nice glow that peeks through my foundation. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. After that I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes to brighten and in a few other places. And I topped that off with the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.

CHM2

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was go in with my bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Then I applied one of my favorite blushes, the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush. And I topped it off with the Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin.

CHM3

CHM4

For my eyes, the first thing I did was use the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, this is probably my favorite eyeshadow primer. Then I went in to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette and used Twig in the crease. It’s a really nice brown and I use it as a crease color for quite a few looks. Then I used the dark matte brown from the e.l.f. Eye Candy Eyeshadow Duo Set on the outer corner of my eye and I brought that in just a little. And on the rest of the lid I used the bright white shadow from that same e.l.f. duo. I then used the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the look with the Lancôme Monsieur Big mascara, it gives you lashes for days.

CHM5

CHM6

ELF8

To top off the whole look I applied the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple. This is a deep brick red and I love it. It’s a great red lipstick. And I locked it all in with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

CHM7

CHM8

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like to do posts like this so look out for more in the future. I’d also love to know what you guys do on Christmas. Do you go a little glam with your look, keep it simple or rock no makeup?

Until next time, have fun creating your looks and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas :).
