Hi guys! Today I thought I’d share with you the makeup that I’m currently wearing! As I was digging through my eyeshadow palette collection I knew I wanted to do something different on my eyes. So, I decided to grab my z-palette which is full of single eye shadows of varying brands. I was instantly drawn to my newer green shadows from Makeup Geek so I knew I wanted to incorporate those. The results? I ended up with a very forest/nature inspired look. I absolutely love combining greens and warmer browns to achieve a look like this. I actually did a somewhat similar one when I posted about the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette here! Funny enough, with both looks I ended up going for Colourpop’s Barracuda on the lips. There is just something about this lipstick that goes so well with greens.
Hi guys! Today I thought it would be fun to show off my matte makeup look that I’m rocking today. I very rarely rock a matte eye makeup look but I wanted something quick and simple today as I was heading out to get my hair done. The only shine I’ve added to this look is my highlight and a shimmery blush. Though I mostly show it on my lips, I am definitely mad about matte!
Hi guys! Today’s post is super late, but I’ve been very slow moving today. Tonight I’m going out to celebrate the birthday of one of my best friends so I wanted to do a warm and vampy look with the Violet Voss x Laura Lee Palette. I blogged about this palette a few months ago and I’m still in love with it! The palette itself is now sold out but, I still thought I would share the look I did with it.

Foundation: Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in 0.5
Concealer: Too Faced Born This Way Concealer in Very Fair & Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral (mixed)

Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Violet Voss x Laura Lee Palette – Priss Pot, Mama Bird and Raga Muffin (transition/crease). Alabama (crease, outer-v and under eye). Rammer Jammer (inner part of lid), Bitty (centre of lid) and Lou (under eye). MAC Eye Shadow – Cranberry and Sketch (outer-v) and Mylar (brow bone). Smashbox Rated-X Mascara (lashes).
Brows: NYX Eye Brow Gel in Blonde and L’Oreal Brow Sylist Plumper (clear)

I’m absolutely in love with how this look turned out. I really love warm and vampy looks all year round but I’m particularly drawn to them during the fall season. The Violet Voss x Laura Lee palette is particularly amazing for warm looks. I just want to slap all of the warm shades all over my face. It’s so beautiful.
If you wanted to tone down the vampy-ness of this look you could totally use a nude or dusty rose lipstick instead. I debated wearing Kat Von D’s Lolita with this but, decided to go darker. I always choose a liquid lipstick when I’m going out because of the longevity of that type of formula. When I’m out I don’t want to be worrying about it my lipstick has disappeared!
What are you wearing on your face today? Is it warm and vampy too? Let me know in the comments down below!

Hi guys! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post today but then the Too Faced Totally Cute Palette that I ordered that UPS delayed delivering two days in a row arrived this morning! I’ll be doing a full review and posting swatches in the near future but today I wanted to play with it and post the look I created.
Hi guys! Today’s Makeup of the Day is inspired by Kathy Lei’s post It Was All Yellow! I loved her take on a bold, bright yellow, and while that colour would not work on me, I decided to dig out my Urban Decay Electric Palette and add a bit of neon pink to my makeup today! You should definitely check out Kathy’s post as the looks she created in it are beautiful!
Hi guys! I was going to post my May Ipsy Glam Bag Today, however, I thought it would be more fun to use the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette that I posted about yesterday! I was so excited to slather this palette all over my face so I had to get this look up right away.
Hi guys! I just received a VoxBox from Influenster yesterday that was full of Maybelline goodies to test and review. While I am going to be posting full reviews on the items I received, I thought it would be fun to slap them all on my face and give you my first impressions. My full reviews will be more detailed and comment on wear time, and how they worked for my skin type. I did also add in a few Maybelline items that I already owned to keep this look as Maybelline oriented as I could. The photo above is all the items that I received for review.
Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to break out my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and do a look slightly different than I normally would do with it (usually I just want to slap Bootycall all over my lid… perfection!). I also thought it would be fun to finally try out some samples I got in recent Ipsy bags that I haven’t got the chance to use yet.
So let’s just get into it!
Hi guys! I know today is normally Mani Monday, but the weather was soooo nice this weekend, I didn’t manage to paint my nails! So, instead, I’m sharing the makeup that I have been wearing today! I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve done a pop of purple under my eye, which is weird considering that’s my favourite look, so I thought I would do just that today!
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.
