Dusty Rain

I’ve got the blues! Well, blues on my eyes that is! It’s been rainy, cloudy, hail-y and just down right icky up here in in the North. So instead of letting it get me down, I thought I’d play its game. Here’s what I used.  Continue reading

Sometimes I don’t hate taupe

Image

If you have been following me long enough, I’m sure you know that I barely ever reach for taupes. But every now and then, my mind switches up on me and I dip my brush into the very few taupes I own and have some fun. I absolutely love taupe and purple, they play so well together! If you have yet to try this combination, you are missing out! Also, please excuse my extra wide/long septum ring. I have to flip it up my nose now for work, so it needed to be big enough for me to do so. Not a huge fan but come summer when I don’t have to worry I am switching it out to something gorgeous. So don’t mind for now! Continue reading

Even the devil has to look pretty.

I’m heading out to see a showing of the Vagina Monologues with a group of my close girlfriends and guy friends! I am absolutely so stoked, it will be the first time I’ve seen it! Here’s the look I’m wearing for it. Products will be up later! If you’re a bit worried about the title of my post, two of the eye shadows I’m wearing are called Demon and Sinner! But really, these are purely made of sin.   Continue reading

Take a bite out of this beauty.

BITE High Pigment Pencil in Chablis

Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. What it’s formulated without: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan

Emily told me that she was looking for a lipstick that she could swipe on and walk out the door. Nothing too flashy but something to perk up her complexion in an instant, even when she wasn’t wearing makeup. So we went on a treasure hunt in Sephora, and the many swatches my arm made me look all shades of fabulous. Seriously, I came out of there looking like I just went through a makeup battle zone. But you know when you find the right lipstick, it just feels right? This was it and the moment we swatched it. we knew we had found the one we were looking for.  Continue reading

Lock in the coverage.

Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation in 45

What Sephora says: “Kat created this foundation to provide exceptional coverage, without compromising a smooth, striking finish. Formulated with 21 percent pigment, this powerful formula was developed to match a broad range of skintones with bold coverage—the proprietary pigments can even effectively cover tattoos. The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance. Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish and the added emollients provide a velvety texture for perfectly smooth, hydrated skin.”

When my skin is severely misbehaving (which let’s be honest, sometimes it just likes to be a total jerk) I reach for this. I’ve been using this for the past couple of months and it has more than once allowed me to walk out of the house not completely self conscious. Especially around that time of the month when all I want to do is cover my face with a paper bag and crawl under my bed covers with a bottle of Tylenol and the BBC Sherlock series. If your face is misbehaving, pick this up.  Continue reading

Olive you.

Since it’s been ages since I’ve posted a face of the day, I figured I should really get back on that! Have I ever told you guys that I love the color olive? I really, really love it. So here’s a light olive look that I threw together for you. I got some gorgeous greens from Silk Naturals that I wanted to play around with and I’m extremely happy with the result. I hope you all love it! I’ll post products soon when I get back from the store!  Continue reading

Some beach, somewhere! With a nose ring.

I’ve got a ring now!

It feels like I haven’t been out of the car in a month! Last week I was on the Oregon Coast and this week I’m down in Newport Beach California, where I grew up. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun! Here’s a really simply beach look I created today. Lots of gold to match the warmth of the sand and sun. Continue reading
