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

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

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

Pass the Bubbly.

LUSH Liquid Lipstick in Bubbly

What LUSH says: “A fun, flirty pink that has a subtle shimmer. Wear it lightly for a more translucent look, or apply generously for a brighter color that reminds you to be cheerful and high spirited. The moisturizing jojoba oil and rose wax base ensure lips stay soft and smooth. Because this creamy lipstick is so versatile, many of us have been using it as a blush. Just dot a small amount on the cheeks and blend well. Bubbly; Laugh out loud.”

I will admit, this was not one of the colors that was chosen for me when I spun the Emotional Brilliance Wheel at LUSH. I know, I’m such a cheater. But, it was just too beautiful not to add to my bag! I loved the name, the color and once I put it on my lips I knew I was sold. It’s such a bright and fun hot pink for summer, and if you don’t have a flirty pink for summer, get on this ASAP.  Continue reading

This is a natural tan, I swear.

What Sephora says: Amazon bronze delivers the right amount of sun-burnished glow while treating your skin with nourishing ingredients. It’s perfect for all skin types and tones and never looks chalky. Amazonian clay, nature’s most perfect ingredient, acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness, improving clarity and texture, and removing surface oil for a true Brazilian bronze bombshell finish—all while replenishing and rehydrating skin. Reinvigorate a dull tone naturally using the puff wherever you desire a subtle, warm glow that will power through the day.” Formulated without: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan

I have been in love with this bronzer since Chantell bought it last summer. It is seriously drop dead gorgeous. Being the bronzers fiend that I am, I can’t believe I don’t own this yet. I wanted to wait until I got a job, and now that I finally just got called back last night (whoohoo!) you can bet this is going in my makeup bag ASAP. Chantell was nice enough to let me swatch this bronzer for reference because it is absolutely perfect for summer, and there isn’t one like it out there.  Continue reading
