Gradient Blue Under Eye

Hi guys! I was going through my eye shadow palette drawer when yet again I was inspired by the Urban Decay Electric Palette. I sometimes go quite awhile without touching this palette but lately I can’t get enough of it! It even made the list for my June Favourites.  I generally use it to add a pop of bright colour so today I thought I would do a neutral eye look with a gradient blue/purple under eye.

MOTD: Warm Neutrals

Hi guys! I’m back with another Makeup of the Day post! I noticed today that when I use my Urban Decay Naked Palette I usually use it more for very light, almost non-existent makeup. I will use a few of the darker shades to add depth to the outer-v of my eye but that’s about it. So, today I decided to venture into just the darker side of the palette and do a warm, darker look using this beautiful neutral palette. I also decided to add a few more products in the mix that I’ve acquired over the past month or so that I haven’t gotten around to testing yet.

YouTube Video: Purple Look using the Vice 4 Palette

P1020113

Hi guys! I know I do a lot of purple looks, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to film for this week when I sat down to film. I had done this look the night before when I had friends over and I ended up really liking it so I decided to try to re-create it.

Disclaimer: There is a section where I ended up going off camera so I had to cut it out, and then back track a bit and explain what was missed. I think I ended up making up for it. I don’t have a camera where I can see myself while I film so for the time being my husband has to centre it for me and then I have to hope I stay in the centre. We are working out the kinks as we go!

Hi guys! Today I’ve got a quick overview of the beauty items that I either received for Christmas, or purchased during the Christmas Holidays!

First up we have the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette which I received as a gift! I started eying up this palette after the first time I saw it. Growing up I have always been a Gwen Stefani fan. She is so talented and always looks fantastic so a palette that she collaborated on has my name written all over it. It’s a beautiful neutral palette with a few pops of colour. I’ll be going into more detail on this palette later this week! Continue reading

Blush Round-Up

Hi guys! After my last round-up post I decided to round-up my blushes and swatch those for you as well. I figured I would start with blushes because it’s a relatively small portion of my makeup collection. I love how much a complimentary blush can make a look more complete. I usually go for a little wash of colour on my cheeks, I don’t really wear anything too intense when it comes to blushes. The blushes are less intense than my swatches suggest, I tried to build up the colours so that my camera would pick them up.  Continue reading

Holiday Look #3

Hi guys! I mentioned in this week’s Snapshot Sunday that I had two Christmas Parties that I attended this weekend. My intention was to post these before I left on both nights. However, with getting ready being the process that it is and being short on time, that didn’t happen. So, I am going to post them this week, starting with the first one (Friday’s) today. My apologies in advance for the less than ideal lighting, but I got ready in the evening so the sun was long gone by that time.
