Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks/Inspiration part two

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with part two of my Valentine’s Day makeup post. Like I said in the first post, I did a total of six looks, and I’m excited to show you guys the rest of them so let’s get into it.

For the first look I wanted to play with more of the rose gold color scheme and I do like how this one came out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the YSL Touche Eclat 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.

For the rest of my face, I bronzed first and to do that I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer. I then applied the Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and to highlight I used a mix of the lightest and pink shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette

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 Too Faced Christmas In London Palette (Three Recent Looks post is coming). I first took Tower Of Lovin’ and put a light layer of that all over my lid, then I took Piccadilly Thrilly and packed it on the outer corner of my eye, into the crease and out onto my lid just a bit. For the rest of my lid I mixed Boxing Day and Father Christmas and applied that. I then took Piccadilly Thrilly and ran that under my eye about halfway and for the other half and into the inner corner of my eye, I again mixed Boxing Day and Father Christmas. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I turned to what has become a tried and true, go to combo for me. I first lined my lips with the Model Col Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the next look I wanted to play on the lighter pink side and do something simple. The first thing I did was prime my face with the YSL Touche Eclat 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 Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach. 

IMG_0598

For the rest of my face I first bronzed with the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. Then I applied the Too Faced Makeup and Be Merry Blush and Too Faced Angel Kisses Highlighter.

IMG_0606

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them with the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Lime Crime Venus III Palette. Because I wanted a simple look I went with the one shadow approach and put the shade Dreamy all over my lid. I did want a little sparkle, so to top it I went into the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Palette, took a little bit of Vintage Doll and applied it lightly. 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 took the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09 Fuchsia and used it to line and fill. I topped that with the Sephora Collection LipStories Lipstick in 69 Werk It for a little bit of fun and sparkle and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

With the last look I had to do red because I would be remiss if I didn’t do a red look for Valentine’s Day and I’m super happy with how it came out. I think it’s fun and I like it a lot. The first thing I did for this look was prime my face with the YSL Touche Eclat 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 Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Translucent

IMG_0601

For the rest of my face I first bronzed with the Nars Laguna Bronzer. Then I applied the blush from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo Palette in Lychee and highlighted with a mix of the lightest and pink shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette. 

IMG_0602

IMG_0608

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 Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 3 and taking the shadow in the bottom right corner, applied that in the crease. I then went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette, took the shade Camping and applied that in the crease as well. Going back to the ABH Norvina Mini Vol. 3 Palette, I mixed the first shadow in the second row and the first shadow in the third row and packed that onto the outer corner of my eye, brought it into the crease a little (with a lot of blending) and brought it onto my lid about halfway. For the rest of my lid I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and applied Snow Fake. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I did some layering like I did with my eyes, but it was unintentional. I first applied a light layer of the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red, on top of that I put a little bit of the Sephora Collection LipStories Lipstick in 23 After Hours. Because it wasn’t exactly the shade I wanted yet I went back with a slightly darker shade and put on a bit of the Sephora Collection LipStories Lipstick in 31 Golden Gate. To add a little bit of fun and sparkle, I lightly applied just a bit of the Sephora Collection LipStories Lipstick in 69 Werk It, I did forget to include that in the picture bit you can see it in the look. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a favorite look from these three I’d love to know which and if not I’d love to know what your Valentine’s Day makeup is going to look like. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and I hope you have a fantastic Valentine’s Day :).

Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks/Inspiration part one

Hi everyone,

As we’re getting close to Valentine’s Day I thought it would be fun to do some different looks to give some inspiration and just have a little fun with the holiday. I did six looks in total and decided that that would be too many for one post, so I’m doing it in two and this is part one.

Starting with the first look, I wanted something on the softer side because sometimes a soft, romantic look is the perfect thing. The first thing I did was prime my face and for that I used the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer. I got a sample of this but had yet to use it, so I used it in full for every one of these looks. I do actually quite like it and would consider buying a full size. Next 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_0552

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. I like this a lot, it gives a nice bronzed and glowy look and it’s very buildable. For blush and highlight I went into the Ofra Mini Mix Palette in Good To Go. I used the Intentions Blush and a mix of the lightest and pink shades in the All of the Lights Highlighter.

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. I went with this one because I wanted a white base. I then went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and taking Cream Filling, put that over my whole lid. I then took Sled No One Ever, and put it in the crease and on the outer corner out of my eye. For a little bit of sparkle and highlight, I took Tinsel Town and put that in the inner corner of my eye. I also took Sled No One Ever and put that under my eye all the way. I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips, I first lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil, then I filled them in with the Trestique Prime + Shine Lip Crayon in Paris Pink. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to do something with purple because I don’t wear it very often, but I think it can be a fun shade to play around it and I’m very happy with how this one came out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer. 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_0552

For the rest of my face I went with the Ofra Mini Mix Palette in Good To Go for everything. I used the Current Bronzer, Intentions Blush and a mix of the lightest and pink shade in the All of the Lights Highlighter. 

IMG_0556

IMG_0562

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 Lime Crime Venus III Palette and put the shade Dreamy in the crease. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette, took the shade Carnival and packed it not only onto the outer corner and into the crease a bit, but I brought it about 3/4 of the way onto my lid. For the rest of my lid I went back to the Lime Crime Venus III Palette and used Beam. I then took Carnival and ran it about 3/4 of the way under my eye and for the rest and in the inner corner of my eye I applied Beam. I lined my waterline with the ColourPop Gel Creme Liner in Amethyst Hour and I lined my eyes with the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner. I topped it off with the KVD Go Big or Go Home Mascara. For my lips, I applied the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous and I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

For the third look, and last of this post, I wanted to do a fun, bright pink look and honestly this one might be my favorite. For my face the first thing I did was prime using the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer. I then 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

Then I went into the Powerpuff Girls x ColourPop Palette ( a Three Recent Looks post is coming with this palette), and took the shade The Fashionistas and not only packed it onto the outer corner of my eye and winged it a bit, but I brought it onto my lid about 3/4 of the way. For the rest of my lid I applied Prof. Utonium. I then brought The Fashionistas under my eye about 3/4 of the way and for the rest and in the inner corner of my eye, I applied Prof. Utonium. 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 first put on a very light layer of the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous and topped it with the Trestique Prime + Shine Lip Crayon in Paris Pink.

NHRA GOES FOUR-WIDE IN LAS VEGAS, TORRENCE,TASCA III, ENDERS, OEHLER GRAB WINS

The NHRA took to Las Vegas this weekend, this time with quadruple the craziness. That’s
right, for the first time this season, the NHRA went four-wise and it did not disappoint.

For those who are unfamiliar, four wide racing is done in quads and there are a total of
three rounds as opposed to four and the first two racers to cross the finish line advance
until we get to the final round a singular race winner in crowned. It’s always exciting and
you never know what’s going to happen.

Starting with Top Fuel, the first quad of the day had three competitors and featured
Brittany Force, Antron Brown and Justin Ashley. Brittany and Antron advanced with a 3.72
and 3.82 respectively, outrunning Justin’s 3.89. The second quad featured Clay Millican,
Todd Paton, Billy Torrence and Jim Maroney. Clay Millican and Billy Torrence advanced
with a 3.75 and a 3.76, while Jim Maroney and Todd Paton had problems of their own. The
third quad featured Steve Torrence, Cameron Ferre, Leah Pruett and Greg Carrillo. Steve
and Leah were on solid a to b runs with a 3.75 and a 3.80, which were enough to outrun
Greg and Cameron’s 4.10 and 4.13. The fourth and final quad of round one featured Doug
Kalitta, Rob Passey, Shawn Langdon and Troy Bu. The Kalitta teammates both ran stout
3.75’s while Troy ran a 3.83 and Rob, a 5.23. Round two featured two quads and they both
had some incredible runs. The rst had Brittany Force, Antron Brown, Clay Millican and
Billy Torrence. Antron grabbed the win in that quad with a 3.76, while Clay picked up the
second win light with a 3.81 outrunning Brittany’s close but slower 3.81 and Billy who had
issues. Quad number two featured Steve Torrence, Leah Pruett, Doug Kalitta and Shawn
Langdon. Shawn and Leah both had issues and were out of it almost immediately, giving
Steve and his 3.77 and Doug and his 3.76, a trip to the finals. The final quad, let’s be
honest, was stacked. We have Steve Torrence and the Capco team, Doug Kalitta and the
Mac Tools team, Antron Brown and the Matco Tools team and Clay Millican and the
Denso/Parts Plus team. It was a close race, but Steve Torrence ended up taking home the
Wally with a 3.82, followed by Doug Kalitta (3.86), Clay Millican (3.91) and Antron Brown
(4.72).

IMG_0520

Next we have Funny Car. The first quad of the day featured Robert Hight, Jonnie Lindberg,
Cruz Pedregon and JR Todd. JR and Robert managed to drive around Cruz and Jonnie with
a 3.95 and 3.98 to a 4.28 and 7.26. The second quad had Ron Capps, Bobby Bode, Bob
Tasca III and Jim Campbell. Bob and Ron had solid runs with a 3.91 and 3.93 to Bobby and
Jim’s 3.99 and 5.89. The third quad of the first round featured John Force, Chris Morel, Matt
Hagan and Blake Alexander. John picked up the win with a 3.92 and Matt was close behind
with a 3.93 while Blake ran a 3.95 and Chris a 4.20. The last quad of the round had Alexis
DeJoria, Terry Haddock, Chad Green and Tim Wilkerson. Tim picked up the win with a 3.91
and Alexis grabbed second with a 3.95 while Terry ran a 4.06 and Chad had problems.
Round two started with a very strong quad of JR Todd, Robert Hight, Bob Tasca III and Ron
Capps. This was a very close race, but Ron and his 3.93 and Bob and his 3.93 managed to
outrun Robert’s 3.95 and JR’s 3.98. The second quad also featured some tough
competitors in John Force, Matt Hagan, Tim Wilkerson and Alexis DeJoria. Matt and Tim
ran solid a to b run’s with a 3.92 and 3.94 respectively over John and Alexis’ 4.04 and 4.25
to put them into the finals. The final quad featured Bob Tasca III and the Ford team, Matt

a 3.93. Matt Hagan was second (3.95) followed by Tim Wilkerson (3.92) and Ron Capps

and 6.68. The second quad featured Mason McGaha, Deric Kramer, Chris McGaha and Kyle
Koretsky. Like a lot of Pro Stock races this was close, but Deric and Mason got themselves

tough, it featured Erica Enders and the Melling Performance team, Aaron Stanfield and the

Blogmas Day Nine: December BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Nine! You might be asking what happened to Day Eight, but instead of doing a traditional post for it, I streamed on Twitch on my podcast channel. I started a podcast with two of my friends, it’s called The Unlikely Trio Podcast, we’ve done three episodes so far and it’s a lot of fun. I’ll link it, but definitely check it out and come hangout with us!

Back to today’s post, yesterday I received my December BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it with you. The theme for this month is Gift Of Glam which is perfect for the holiday season. Not only are people literally gifting so much makeup and skincare to one another, but with all the parties during the season, BoxyCharm is the perfect gift to yourself.

IMG_0058

So the first product we have is the Mudmasky Mineral – Infused Double Cleansing Mask. This is a non foaming, fragrance free cleansing mask that is infused with minerals to detoxify and deep cleanse your face before bed. Along with the blend of cleansing minerals, it’s mixed with Mudmasky’s signature Premium Moroccan Lava Clay and this blend helps to restore your skin’s pH levels, prevent acne and reduce redness. This is a 3 in 1 formula so it’s deep cleansing, pore refining, restoring, nourishing and hydrating. I’ve been using the Mudmasky eye serum and I like it a lot, so I’m interested to try this out. It sounds great. 

IMG_0061

The next product we have is the TYNT Beauty TYNTED – Hydrating Tinted Eye Cream in the shade Whisper. This is a sheer, color correcting eye cream/concealer. This is fortified with squalene, apple extract, jojoba seed oil and super hyaluronic acids so you get a well hydrated and supple finish that helps to reduce the looks of under eye circles. Because it is a sheer formula, it says it’s buildable, which is always a plush. I’m intrigued by the idea of this, so I’ll try it out and see what I think. 

IMG_0062

Moving on we have the RealHer Dreams So Big Eyeshadow Palette. This is a 9 pan palette with a mix of matte and shimmer shadows in neutral tones. These shadows are infused with avocado oil, coconut oil and other vegan ingredients for buttery shadows that are highly pigmented and blend nicely. I really like the packaging on this. It’s very sleek and cool. 

IMG_0063

You get a nice size mirror with this palette as well, which is always a plus. 

IMG_0064

I didn’t swatch this palette because I’m going to sneakily use it as a stocking stuffer for someone, but I wanted to show it you guys because I think it’s a nice palette and this would be great for anyone would likes neutrals or someone who is just starting out in makeup and doesn’t have a lot yet. 

IMG_0065

The second to last product we have is the Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner – Water – Resistant Liquid Eyeliner. This is a vegan, fade proof, water resistant liquid liner in an intense black with a micro brush tip so you can get the precise line and definition you want. Seraphine Botanicals is a brand I’ve used on and off for years. I actually used another eyeliner of theirs, I think it was Liquid Coal, and I did like it so I’m excited to try this one. Plus you can never have too many eyeliners. 

IMG_0066

IMG_0067

And the last product we have is the Benefit Cosmetics Georgia Golden Peach Blush. This is one of Benefit’s best sellers and it’s easy to see why. This is a really pretty warm and vibrant peach shade with a nice, soft golden shimmer that gives you a lovely little glow. In the swatch it was really smooth and blended easily. Plus it smells good. 

IMG_0074

This comes with the little brush that most Benefit products have and I think they’re so cute. I have used the brush once or twice and even though it’s not what I usually go for, it’s decent. 

IMG_0075

It also has a little mirror which is great if you’re reapplying on the go. If you wanted to pop this in your handbag you would be set. 

IMG_0076

I think for me because of the tone of it, I’m more likely to use it as a highlighter, but I’ll try it out as both and see what I prefer. But I do like it and I think it’s super pretty. 

IMG_0077

That about wraps it up for this post, if we got any of the same products in our December BoxyCharm boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products, I’m glad you’re liking Blogmas and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Blogmas Days Nine & Ten: Christmas Village and Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Days 9 &10! I mentioned earlier in the week that I was going to be double posting this week and because today’s posts are rather short, I decided to make them one combined post.

For Day 9, I wanted to share my Christmas village with you. I’ve made a couple of upgrades and added some new pieces, so it’s even more festive than it was before. So pretty much all of the actual houses and shops are from Lowes, Home Depot or Ace Hardware and the accessories are from those places as well. The lighted blanket at the bottom is brand new this year and it’s from Amazon. I think my favorite new thing is the sleigh with Santa and the reindeer. It has multicolored lights on the side and it’s super pretty.

IMG_6866

IMG_6867

For Day 10, I thought it would be fun to show you guys my Christmas tree. There is as local, family owned tree farm that I get my tree from and I have for a few years. They have the absolute best trees and I always get a good one from them. 

IMG_6766

I really like the shape of this tree and it smells so good. 

IMG_6777

I’m super happy with the way it came out and it definitely made the overall feel so much more festive once all the decorations were on it. I also have a love/hate relationship with my tree skirt, it’s really pretty but the glitter comes off which I don’t love, so if you have any good tree skirt recommendations let me know. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a Christmas village I’d love to know what your favorite part of it is.

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

August BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale Haul

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I finally received my BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale order and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. I wasn’t really looking for anything specific during the sale but I did end up buying one thing and I’m excited about.

What I bought is a MAC lipstick. They had a couple of color options, but I went with 640, Red Rock. I had a slight uh oh moment yesterday because it was a warm day and this sat in my mailbox, which retains quite a lot of heat, for a good amount of time and when I opened it I noticed it was sweating. I had to do some googling and quite a few websites said to put it in the fridge so I did and it worked like a charm. So if your lipsticks ever start sweating the fridge is the place to put them.

IMG_6207

IMG_6208

This lipstick is really creamy, highly pigmented and has a matte finish. This is what I would call a classic red. There was at least one other color option, it was a bright pink, but MAC does red so well that I couldn’t resist. 

IMG_6209

I’m of the school of thought that you can never have too many red lipsticks. I can already tell this is going to be perfect for the holidays and I can’t wait to wear it. 

IMG_6210

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you shopped the August Boxy Pop Up Sale let me know what you got and if not I’d love to know what your favorite MAC lipstick is, 

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many lipsticks :).
