Halloween is hands down my favourite holiday. Nothing beats dressing up in a costume and going out. Usually I purchase a costume, but this year I thought I’d try something different and put the costumes together myself. I have to say, Instagram was a huge inspiration for this. Between seeing so many posts of galaxy makeup and zombie makeup I had a lot of ideas swiming around my head. My galaxy costume was my main costume this year and I spent my weekends working on it. Since I was going out twice, I also decided to do the zombie costume after seeing what my sister had planned for that night. So, let’s take a look at my costumes, shall we?
Night 1: Galaxy Costume
For my galaxy costume I knew I wanted to get a black body suit and sponge paint it. The skirt was a spontaneous add-on when I went to buy the body suit. This also gave me something to adhere my planets to. The planets were all hand-painted on styrofoam balls and velcroed to the skirt. I am shocked that I only lost one planet when I wore this out. Funny enough I lost Earth, so I’m working on re-painting it so I can wear this again on Tuesday. Continue reading
Hi guys! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought it was appropriate to bust out my holiday looks series again. For today’s look I decided to create a look using my Valentine’s Day present from my husband last year (Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette) and put together a festive pink look! When I think of Valentine’s Day I just want to slather myself in pink! My apologies in advance for the photos being a bit out of focus, this is apparently what happens when I try to squeeze in a photoshoot before work… But, I think you can at least see the basics of the look!
Hi guys! I was taking the ‘rest of the year’ off from writing blog posts, but I just couldn’t resist sharing my New Year’s Eve makeup look. I’m not going out tonight, but am having a relaxing night at home with my husband and bestie. But, that didn’t stop me from going full glam.
Hi guys! For today’s holiday look, it’s also a makeup of the day post as I’m sharing what I am wearing for Christmas Eve. I have a family dinner tonight so I decided to do another festive look for the occasion. I say festive or holiday look loosely, as I’d wear most of these looks any time, but I find they all work well for the holiday season. I’ve been dying to use the shade Smashlee in the Violet Voss x Laura Lee Palette and just haven’t gotten around to it, so today seemed like the perfect time.
Hi guys! Today’s holiday look encompasses one of my favourite parts of this time of year, a classic red lip. And of course, for this I had to use one of my favourite reds, Too Faced Melted Matte in Lady Balls. I get so many compliments when I wear this colour and I definitely wear it more than ever during the holidays. Each time I wear it, I secretly hope that someone asks me what colour I’m wearing because this shade has such a great name. The looks I get when I say I’m wearing “Lady Balls” makes it so worth it.
Hi guys! My last holiday look was warm & cozy, so this time I thought I would go cool & metallic to change things up! I love wearing purple so I’d wear this every day, to a holiday party or wherever, but I thought it would fit nicely with the season. I love how different it is from any other holiday look that I’ve pulled together. If this isn’t your cup of tea for a Christmas party, I think it would be perfect for New Year’s Eve as well! Okay, let’s dive deeper into this cool & metallic holiday look!
Hi guys! As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m trying really hard to get into the holiday spirit since Christmas is face approaching! With that being said, I’m excited to share more holiday looks with you! I did a whole bunch last year and I’m ready to share more. Today I was inspired by the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Fast Lane that I recently hauled. I also was eager to bust out my Morphe x Kathleenlights Eye Shadow palette again for you guys because I’ve been wearing it a ton lately and I’m in LOVE. Today I stuck to gold as I feel like that’s a wonderful shade for holiday looks.
Hi guys! In the spirit of it being Easter weekend I thought it would be fun to do a bright Spring look and add a video! I’ve been seeing so much turquoise lately so the main goal was to incorporate a little bit into a look. Continue reading
Hi guys! Since St. Patrick’s Day is a workday if you work a 9-5 Monday to Friday job and you’re not on March Break I thought I would do a look that allows you to incorporate some green into your look without going over-the-top. All I did was one of my typical matte natural eye looks but added a pop of green under the eye. I’m really happy with how it turned out! If you’re looking for something a little more green, I did post a more green eye look a few months ago here!

I think this is a very work appropriate, yet fun look to do if you are stuck at work for St. Patrick’s Day! You could really add a pop of any colour to this look for any occasion. I personally love using purple under the eye with a neutral look like this (huge surprise, I know!).

Hi guys! With Valentine’s Day being tomorrow I thought it would be fun to do a festive look for the occasion.
