YVES SAINT LAURENT Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll

What Sephora says: “Baby Doll creates a full open-eye effect by lifting and separating lashes. The patented formula creates long-lasting volume and intense color that is evenly dispersed with no flakes, clumps, or smudges for up to 24 hours. Reach every lash, including the baby ones for a full fringe effect. The brush has duo-length bristles that adapt to all lash types, separating, coating, and multiplying lashes for defined volume.”

Stop what you’re doing right now and head to your nearest Sephora to pick up this 100 point perk because this mascara is killer. I ended up getting two of them because I love it so much and I plan on probably getting two more (hey, I’ve got points so I’m going to use them!) and I don’t want to be without this. If you’re a fan of lashes that are sky high without clumps, you will love this.  Continue reading

Last call for spring

Schools out for summer! Well, not really. I still have summer classes. But I’m sure as hell not letting that keep me from enjoying my summer. I’m heading out with my ladies tonight and I wanted my look to be as sizzling as the temperature outside. I hope you’re all enjoying your night as well! I am still loving the Vice Palette by Urban Decay, it’s absolutely perfect for summer! You can bet I’ll be showcasing it many times this summer. Here are the products that 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

Who says neutral has to be boring?

Today I have a natural daytime spring look for you! I love using neutrals, it’s an all day, everyday kind of thing for me. They add so much to your look without going overboard and I think they get looked over a lot. It’s my first time doing a collage/picture tutorial so bear with me. The lighting was also super frustrating today and my camera wasn’t cooperating either, but practice makes perfect, right? Robin, my roommate was kind enough to be my model for the day and she has seriously gorgeous blue eyes. I loved every second working with her! Expect to see more of these in the future! Onto the tutorial! 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.

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

Urban Decay Smoked Eye Shadow Palette

What Sephora says: “An Urban Decay take on the always-popular smoky eye, this 10-shadow palette includes traditional black and gray, as well as modern-colored hues for smoky eyes. Each velvety shade features Urban Decay’s new shadow formula and proprietary Pigment Infusion System™, allowing infinite depth to your eye looks, whether you commit to all-out nighttime smoky or just apply a hint of sultry smudgy color for daytime.”

Smokes and I are not friends, we’re more like casual acquaintances. Tell me to do a black smokey eye and I will run in the other direction! Let’s just say it’s not my thing, but for the girls who love rocking those bedroom eyes, you need this in your life. These shades will knock your socks off, and there’s a good possibility they’ll also knock the rest of your clothes off as well.  Continue reading

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

What Sephora says: “An eye shadow set featuring ten of Urban Decay’s bestselling shades—from neutral to vivid to all-out smoky.”

You all know me and color–half of the time I won’t even go near it. However, when my best friend Emily (fashionista over at Sekond-Skin!) said that she wanted to explore the world of color with her makeup, I was determined to help her find the best palette. The search led to Urban Decay and possibly one of the most versatile and easily wearable, playful color palettes I’ve ever come across. Em was hooked and surprisingly, so was I.  Continue reading
