Happy St Patrick’s Day! I actually was out celebrating a night ahead of the real day so I thought I’d share with you the St Patrick’s Day makeup look that I created. Every time I wear green eye shadow I remember why I love it and wish that I wore it more often. I really need to do it more often than just on St Patrick’s Day. While my plans tonight are a bit quieter (I’m going with the husband to see a comedy show), I think I’ll do another green eye makeup look anyways. Why not?
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! 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!
Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm in Sensitive
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral
Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and Maybelline Matte + Poreless Translucent Powder
Blush: Urban Decay After-Glow Blush in Rapture
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: theBalm’s Mary Lou-Manizer
Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette – Samael (crease and outer v) and Laetus (all over lid). Makeup Geek Foiled Shadow – Fantasy (inner lower eye) and Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette – Grasshopper (outer lower eye). Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Demolition. L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara (lashes).
Brows: NYX Micro-Brow in Taupe and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend
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. Since pink is such a prominent colour for Valentine’s Day I decided to do a very pink look using the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette with other pink accents throughout the face. For more information please check out my video tutorial below!
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
Hi guys! I can’t believe that 2015 is close to coming to an end. When I look back at the year, there isn’t a lot that jumps out at me aside from starting this blog. I really think that this blog was the highlight of the year because it was the moment that I decided to take a chance and do something that I love. I’m not going to get into my resolutions in this post, as that will be it’s own post, but next year I’m going to aim higher that’s for sure.
I thought it would be fun to do a New Years Eve Inspired look. If you haven’t already decided what you’re doing for makeup tonight, maybe this will help get the wheels turning! Continue reading
Hi guys! I saw this tag on BrightEyeBlog and thought I would get into the Christmas spirit and give it a go! If you haven’t checked out her blog, please do check it out!
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
It definitely would be Elf and then the Grinch (the Jim Carey one) Continue reading
With the holiday season in full swing I find myself reaching for my red lipsticks more frequently than usual. To me, red lipstick is a staple in my collection but I don’t find myself wearing them every day. With my fair skin, I find that reds look dramatic on me. I do like the way they look but just not for the average day. Continue reading
Hi guys! Welcome to another holiday inspired look! This is the look that I wore to my husband’s work Christmas party last Saturday. My inspiration was to do something that had gold and sparkle in it. Of course, given the nature of this event I wanted to add a red lip as well. Since I did a matte true-red lip in my last holiday post, I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I chose Urban Decay’s Catfight since it leans more on the pink side, but still has some red to it. I also thought the a bold red lip might have been a bit too much with my red dress. All in all, I’m very happy with how this look turned out! Continue reading
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. Continue reading
