Three Recent Looks, PowerPuff Girls x ColourPop Palette

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! Today I’m back with one of my favorite styles of post, a Three Recent Looks and this time it’s all about the PowerPuff Girls x Colourpop Palette. I’ve been saying for a while that this post was coming, life happens, other palettes show up and require attention, but I’m a woman of my word so here we are.

I really like this palette. I think that it’s very versatile and you can have a lot of fun with it. All of the shadows are very pigmented and nicely formulated.

For the first look I wanted to do something that incorporated all of the PowerPuff Girls and I really like how this one turned out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. 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.

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. Then, because I wanted a different tone of blush, I went into the Too Faced Christmas In London Palette and mixed the Pretty & Punk and Carnaby Sweet blushes. I highlighted with a mix of the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette

IMG_1529

IMG_1535

For my eyes, I first primed them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I moved to the palette. The first shade I took was Silico and I not only packed it on the outer corner of my eye, but blended it up into the crease as well. Then I took Chemical X and applied on the rest of my eyelid. To bring together the theme of representing all of the PowerPuff Girls, I then took RowdyRuff Boys and brought that halfway under my eye and for the other half I applied The Fashionistas. On the inner corner of my eye, I dabbed a little bit of Chemical X. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips, I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner and filled them in with the KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

My second look is Blossom inspired and I love how this turned out, I think it really showcases how pretty the eyeshadows are. So the first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. 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_1527

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed with the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer. Then I applied the Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and highlighted with the Too Faced Angel Kisses Highlighter.

When it came to my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the palette and applied a light layer of Pokey Oaks in the crease. I then took Girls Rock and packed it on the outer corner of my eye and for the rest of my lid, applied Frenemy. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. For my lips I took the Dominique Cosmetics Creamy Fill & Define Lip Liner in Crush and used it as an all over lip color. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

My third look is Bubbles inspired and I had a lot of fun with this one. Any look you can use glitter, is an extra fun one. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Translucent

IMG_1528 

For the rest of my face, first bronzed with the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer, then I applied the Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and highlighted with the shade Icy from the Ace Beaute Glow Essentials Highlighter Palette

IMG_1533

IMG_1539

When it came to my eyes, I first primed them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the palette and blended a very light layer of Crime Fighting in the crease. I then took RowdyRuff Boys and packed it on the outer corner of my eye. I decided that I wanted an extra pop and fun element, so I used one of the glitters, Townsville. I thought about using the other glitter, Superfriends, but I wanted a contrast. Although I have used Superfriends in another look and it’s very pretty. I wanted a little pop of color and brightness to bring it all together, so I took the ColourPop Creme Gel Liner in Big Splash and lined my water line. I lined my eyes with the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips, I first lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always love this style of post, so look out for more in the future. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :). -K

Three Recent Looks, Beauty Bakerie Sour Ya Doin’? Palette

Hi everyone,

Today we’re back with one of my favorite styles of post, a Three Recent Looks and this time it’s with the Beauty Bakerie Sour Ya Doin’? Palette. You guys, this palette is SO GOOD! The formulation is great, as is the color range. All the shadows are very pigmented, go on smooth and creamy and blend very well. Beauty Bakerie did a fantastic job with this one.

This is a 9 pan palette with the theme of lemons and lemonade, it’s perfect for spring and summer.

IMG_1099

So, for the first look I really wanted to play off of the lemonade theme and use the yellow shades and holy crap. The metallic shadows in this palette are truly next level. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder

IMG_1354

For the rest of my face I first bronzed with the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer, applied the blush from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted with a mix of the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient palette

IMG_1355

IMG_1362

For my eyes, I primed them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light, then I went into the palette. I took the matte yellow, Tart and blended it into the crease. Sometimes yellows can be disappointing in palettes because they are hard to formulate, but this one is nice. I then took Icy and applied it on my entire lid. Because I wanted a little extra brightness, I took the ColourPop Creme Gel Liner in Extra Frosting and applied it in my water line. I then took Tart and ran it 3/4 of the way under my eye and for the rest and in the inner corner of my eye, I applied a lighter layer of Icy. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. For my lips I took the Dominique Cosmetics Creamy Fill & Define Lip Liner in Crush and used it as an all over lip color. I set the look with the Maven Beauty Rose Setting Spray

For my second look I wanted to play on the sweeter side of the Sour palette and I like this look a lot. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

I highlighted with a mix of Radiant and Icy from the Ace Beaute Glow Essentials Highlighter Palette

IMG_1357

IMG_1364

For my eyes, I first primed them with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light, then I went into the palette. I took Sour and blended that into the crease, the I took Pink Lemonade and packed that on the outer corner of my eye, bringing it in about half way. For the rest of my eye I applied Sangria, I originally thought that this would be a good shade to use as a topper, and it still would, but this stands well on it’s own and I like it a lot. I then took Pink Lemonade and ran it under my eye about half way, for the rest of the way and the inner corner of my eye, I applied Sangria. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner and filled them in with the Sephora Collection #LipStories Lipstick in 36, Spring Break. I set the look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

For the third look I wanted to use the other metallic in this palette, the orange, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder in Translucent

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light, then I went into the palette. I took Bellini Me and blended that in the crease and for the entirety of my lid, applied Refresher. I then took Bellini Me and put it under my eye about 3/4 of the way and for the rest of the way and in the inner corner of my eye, I applied Refresher. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. For my lips I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless.

Three Recent Looks, Too Faced Christmas In London Palette

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I’m back with one of my favorite style of posts, a Three Recent Looks and this time it’s all about the Too Faced Christmas In London Palette. I find this palette to be super versatile, there’s a nice range of shades and finishes so the possibilities as far as looks go is endless really. The mattes are really smooth and blend out nicely, the shimmers are creamy and everything nicely formulated and very pigmented. The blushes are that way as well. It’s overall a very solid palette.

For the first look I wanted to do something fun but not too over the top and I do like a peachy/pink look. Overall I’m super happy with how this one came out. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. 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_0728

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed with the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. Then I went into the Christmas In London Palette and mixed Pretty & Punk and Carnaby Sweet blushes, it looks a little dark in the swatch but I did much less in real life. And I 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 palette, took Tower Of Lovin and put that in the crease. I took Piccadilly Thrilly and packed that on the outer corner of my eye, winged it out a little, and also brought it up into the crease a bit. For the rest of my lid I applied Too Faced At Carnaby. For a little brightness, I took the ColourPop Creme Gel Liner in Exit, and lined my waterline. I then went with Piccadilly Thrilly under my eye, about 3/4 of the way and for the rest and the inner corner of my eye, I applied Too Faced At Carnaby. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Translucent

Blogmas Day Eleven: BoxyCharm, A Year In Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be doing a BoxyCharm Year In Review. I got a lot of great boxes this year and had a ton of favorite products, so I thought it would be good to put them all together and share what I really loved.

January:

The January box was a strong start to the year, and my favorite from this box was the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. It didn’t feature in any of my recent looks posts, but I do like it and I do use it, it tends to fall to the back of my bronzer drawer, so I need to make a spot for it towards the front.

IMG_7176

IMG_7184

IMG_7185

February: 

Ace Beaute made a really great impression in BoxyCharm this year, at least for me, and one of the things I loved in February was the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette. I use this all the time, I think it’s a super fun and versatile palette, in fact I talked about it in yesterday’s post. The other thing I loved in February was the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip & Cheek in Rendezvous/Swipe. I use Rendezvous solely as a lip product and I like it a lot. It’s a very pretty shade of pink.

IMG_7328

March: 

The March box had three items in it that I either loved already or have become staples in my makeup collection. The first of which is the Lime Crime Venus III Palette. This palette is super cute, it has some super pretty shadows in it and I love the versatility it affords. Then there’s the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara which I’ve loved pretty much since it came out, it’s so good and always does my lashes good. The last product is one that I was initially unsure of because I don’t love rose in beauty and skincare products, but it’s turned into one of my favorites and it’s the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This locks in your makeup and you don’t feel sticky. Because of the rose water, it’s actually kinda refreshing.

IMG_7550

April: 

In April I received the Flirtacious Looks Monarch Lash Pack and these lashes are SO good! It came with two pairs, Baby Girl, an angled lash and Charmer, a round lash. The second thing I loved from the April box is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow Illuminator in Champagne Rich. I used this a lot during the summer and it gives a great glow but is also buildable so you can have your desired level of glow. 

IMG_7919

IMG_7924

IMG_7927

May: 

The May box saw me receiving two things that I have since repurchased and have talked about so many times since. The first is the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. This is a nude lipstick with the hydration of a balm and it’s so, so good. I honestly recommend, especially if you’re a nude lipstick fan. The second is the Murad City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer. I mentioned this in my Winter Skincare post and it’s an excellent moisturizer because it not only moisturizes, but it protects against blue light which is perfect for me because I do spend a bit of time on my computer. My skin definitely likes Murad. 

IMG_8187

IMG_8209

IMG_8206

June: 

The June box had two things that very much screamed summer to me, a bright lipstick and glowy skin. The bright lipstick came in the form of the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red, which has become a go to of mine in my red lipstick collection. The glowy skin came from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette, I talk about this all the time, you guys know how much I love it. 

IMG_8488

IMG_8502

IMG_8504

IMG_8506

July: 

In July I got a great mix of great makeup and skincare. The Ofra Mini Mix Palette in Good To Go is something I already loved, so when I saw it was a choice item for July I picked it and it turned out to be a great choice because I just hit pan on the bronzer and because these are magnetic pans, I can just swap out the new and old ones. The BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black has become something I reach for a lot in my eyeliner drawer and I like it a lot, you have a lot of flexibility so you can do the thin precise line or you can do a thick and dramatic wing. On the skincare side, this is when I got the Mudmasky Vitamin Infused Eye Serum, I also talked about this in my Winter Skincare post and I love it, I can see a difference since I started using it. 

IMG_8792

IMG_8806

IMG_8808

IMG_8799

IMG_8803

August: 

The August box featured what as become a go to eyeshadow palette for me, the Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette. I used this palette a lot during college football season and when I did my gold eye look for yesterday’s post, this is what I used to do it. I’m also a space nerd, so that made this palette extra fun for me. My second August favorite is the Volition Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil. I have a couple of dark spots on my face, and this has helped tremendously, it’s a great product. Definitely recommend it you’re looking to get rid of any dark spots. 

IMG_9035

IMG_9037

IMG_9033

September: 

I’m gonna be honest, this was not my favorite box of the year. I did and do like the GlamGlow YouthMud Glow Stimulating Treatment. This is the OG GlamGlow product that made it what it is today and when you use it you can see why. Obviously the more you use it, the more results you see, but when in the 10 or so minutes you have it on, you can tell a difference. The exfoliating properties give you smooth, glowy and soft skin. The other thing I liked in this box is the Half Caked 813, Duo Fiber Brush. I use this for blush, and it gives you an airbrushed finish. It’s also super soft and I like the colors, I don’t have a lot of brushes in this color. 

IMG_9285

IMG_9303

IMG_9314

October: 

The October box was fantastic. I feel like as we got closer to the end of the year, the boxes got better and better. I’ve talked about this palette a number of times since getting it, but the October box gave me the Ace Beaute Falling For You Palette and I still love it so much. I used it yesterday and it’s still great, the color range, the mix of mattes and shimmer, the color payoff and the formulation are all top notch. This box gave me something I had never tried before, and that was the Appeal Cosmetics Adhesive Liner. I’ve worn this a few times and I do like it, I find it to be quicker and easier than messing around with lash glue, and we all know how much of a mess that can be. I also received a set of lashes that I love, they’re from Camara Aunique Beauty and they’re the Mary Lash. They do give you volume and that oomph that you want from a false lash, but it’s very natural. The last thing in this box that I love is the Tresluce Beauty Like An Artista 4 Piece Brush Set. I know that at the time I received this set the brand was fairly new, but for a new brand they seriously smashed it with the brushes. They’re all super soft, blend nicely and they’re nice to grip. 

IMG_9433

IMG_9445

IMG_9447

IMG_9449

IMG_9451

IMG_9454

November: 

In November I genuinely loved everything in the box, and I don’t know if that’s happened in the time I’ve been doing BoxyCharm. It started with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light, I talk about this all the time, it makes your shadow last all day and it amplifies both mattes and shimmers without being too sticky and tacky. Then we have the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette. For being a smaller palette it has a lot of versatility and the colors are so, so pretty. I’ve been using this a lot recently. The Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer is one that has quickly made it’s way into the front of my bronzer drawer, I love that it’s on the lighter side so you can build it up as much as you want and you get that nice Hawaiian glow. The Luxie Pautips Por La Noche Brush Set was nice to see because I really like Luxie brushes and this came with a cute little pouch which is currently holding these brushes and all the random single brushes I had. The last product in this box is the Bodyography Makeup Brush Cleanser. I used this recently when I cleaned by brushes and having it in the spray bottle was so much quicker and easier and I feel like it didn’t take as much to clean them as it usually does. 

December: 

I won’t be revealing my thoughts and favorites from the December box in this post, but I will be doing so in my monthly favorites like I always do. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same overall Boxy favorites let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you loved from BoxyCharm this year. 

Until next time, enjoy your products, I can’t believe Blogmas is almost over and I can’t wait to see what I get next year in BoxyCharm :).

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. The first thing I did was prime my face with the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Primer. 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. 

IMG_0096

For the rest of my face, I used the Ofra Mini Mix Palette in Good To Go. I first bronzed with the Current Bronzer. I then applied the Intentions Blush and highlighted with a mix of the top and bottom shades from the All of the Lights Highlighter.

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.

Blogmas Day One: Three Recent Looks, Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Day One of the Twelve Days of Blogmas! I’m super excited to be doing Blogmas again, it’s one of my favorite things to do during December and I’m glad you guys like it too. So we’re going to start off with one of my favorite types of post, a Three Recent Looks and we’re doing it with the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette. Though this isn’t a super Christmassy palette, I figured it a good thing to start with because the sunsets you get during winter and the Christmas season can be pretty spectacular and this palette embodies that.

A little info, this is a 10 pan palette with a mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics. It’s a very versatile palette with a great formulation and excellent color payoff. I’m having a lot of fun playing around with it.

For the first look, I went with something very simple. When I first got it and I was looking for some info I went to the Violet Voss website and saw some of the sample looks they had done and wanted to recreate one. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter in Nude Glow. 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 Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer, this really has come one of my go to products since receiving it. Then I applied the Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry Blush and Too Faced Angel Kisses Highlighter. 

IMG_9883

IMG_9890

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the palette and took Lilac and applied it all over my lid and that was it. I rarely do just one shadow on my eyes these days, but I wanted to really test it out. I then took a little bit of Lilac and put it under my eye as well 3/4 of the way and for the rest and the inner corner of my eye I applied Vanilla. 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 applied the Sephora Collection #LipStories Lipstick in 36 Spring Break and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to play with the neutrals in the palette and I think this might be my favorite look that I’ve done with it. I’ve recreated it a couple times since and you might be able to tell that between the first picture and the second I got a new phone so the photo quality is better. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 250, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder

For the third look I wanted to do something really fun and sparkly so that’s what I did and I think it’s a fun look. The first thing I did was prime my face with the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth and Blur Primer. I got a sample of this in a Sephora order recently and forgot how much I like it. I’m definitely going to have to repurchase.

Three Recent Looks, Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite posts for you, a Three Recent Looks. This time with the Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette. I got this palette in my BoxyCharm box last month and instantly liked it when I saw it. I’m a huge space nerd and this appeals to that side of me.

IMG_9035

You get a good size mirror with this palette, which is always a plus and it’s actually a really good mirror for a palette. 

IMG_9036

This is a 12 pan palette with 5 different finishes, there’s matte, shimmery, creamy, ultra shiny glitter and shimmer with sparkle. Because this palette was inspired by Venus there is a bit of diversity with the color range, so you do get the option to create some fun and different looks. 

IMG_9037

So for the first look I wanted to do something with the golds in the palette and I’m really happy with how it came out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set it with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder

IMG_9215

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Nars bronzer in Laguna. I used the blush from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted using the Touch In Sol Glowdient Palette and mixing together the first two shades. 

IMG_9216

IMG_9222

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I moved into the Venus Palette and first applied Phobos in the crease. Because I wanted a darker brown on the outer corner I went into the ColourPop Limoncello Palette, took the shade Vespa and packed that onto the outer corner of my eye, bringing it up into the crease just a little. For the rest of my lid I applied Jupiter and for a little extra glitter, dabbed a little bit of Deimos. I then brought Vespa under my eye about three quarters of the way and for the rest and into the inner corner of my eye I applied Jupiter. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I wanted a lighter brown for my lips, so I first lined them with the Vintage Cosmetics by Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha and filled them in with the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Bombshell. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

IMG_9217

IMG_9223

IMG_9139

IMG_9141

For my second look I really wanted to play with the fun colors and do something the pinky shades and purples. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. 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_9215

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then applied the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and highlighted with the Touch In Sol Glowdient Palette, using a mix of the first and third shades. 

IMG_9218

IMG_9224

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer. Because I wanted a berry shade in the crease, I went into the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette and first used the darker shade (first shadow in the middle row) and to lighten it up just a bit, blended that with the lighter berry shade (last shadow in the third row). Then I went into the Venus Palette and because I wanted a purple shade, took Europa and packed it onto the outer corner of my eye, blending it up into the crease just a little bit. For the rest of my lid I applied Kallisto and topped it with Venus, which is such a gorgeous topper. I brought Europa under my eye about halfway and the rest of the way and into the inner corner of my eye I applied Kallisto mixed with Venus. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. I wanted a lighter lip with this look, so I first lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Nude Lip Liner and filled them in with the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. And I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. 

IMG_9219

IMG_9225

IMG_9154

I did the third look when it was a colder, more fall like day, so I went for the orangey/brown fall vibes. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. 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.

For the rest of my face I used the Ofra Mini Mix Face Palette in Good To Go. The bronzer is in the shade Current, the blush in the shade Intentions and the highlighter, which I used the top, bottom and shade on the left side, is in the shade All Of The Lights. It’s such a great and versatile palette. 

IMG_9220

IMG_9226

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. I then went into the Venus Palette and first used Mercury in the crease, it’s a nude shade, but I wanted to bring a little brightness. I then took Phobos and packed it onto the outer corner of my eye, bringing it into the crease just a little. It was looking a little light at that point, so I mixed in just a bit of Vespa from the ColourPop Limoncello Palette. For the rest of my eye I applied Mars topped with a dab of Moon. Looking at it you might wonder why I used Moon because it is a pinker shade, but it has some gold flecks in it that really come through if you have a light hand and it added a lot to the look. I then brought the Phobos/Vespa mix under my eye about half way and for the other half and into the inner corner of my eye applied the Mars/Moon combo. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Liner in Black and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I wanted a lighter nudey/brown lip so I first lined my lips with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Nude Lip Liner and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. 

IMG_9221

IMG_9227

IMG_9169

That about wraps it up for this post, I really do like this palette, I think it’s a lot of fun and the shades are pigmented, blend well and you get a nice color payoff. I know that Dito Cosmetics has themed palettes similar to this one, so I’m definitely going to look at those. Like I said, I really like doing these posts so look out for more in the future. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

4th of July Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to Recent Look post on my 4th of July makeup look. I always do a festive makeup look for the 4th, trying to make it different than the previous year, and I’m really happy with the one I did this year. I think it was really fun and it came out great.

So the first thing I did for this look was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Next I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory followed by my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

IMG_8774

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Nars Bronzer in Laguna. I applied the blush from the e.l.f Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted using the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Glowdient Makeup Palette, mixed together. 

IMG_8775

IMG_8777

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Photo Op, a nude/brown, as a transition shade, putting it in the crease and blending it out just a bit. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette and took the shade Noir, which is a dark blue/black, put it on the outer corner of my eye and brought it in just a little bit. I then went back into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Electric, a sparkly dark blue with a black shift, and put it on half of my eyelid. For the other half of my eyelid and the inner corner of my eye, I went back to the ABH Sultry Palette and grabbed Cyborg, a sparkly silver shade. I then took Noir, Electric and Cyborg and put them under my eye, matching where they were on my lid. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I obviously wanted a red lip, and for that I used the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red. This is a new lip color for me, I’ve only worn it once, and I didn’t line my lips because I wanted the full effect of the lipstick and because it’s in pencil form you don’t always have to. And to set everything I used the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a festive makeup look for the 4th I’d love to know what you did. 

Until next time, have fun creating different makeup looks and I hope you had a fun 4th :).
