MOTD: Warm & Vampy

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.

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!

Glamorous in Gold!

Glamorous-in-Gold.jpgHi guys! Gold is usually out of my comfort zone because I tend to prefer either browny-warm shades, or cooler toned shades. I don’t generally wear a lot of gold because of the yellow undertones and how they look with my fair skin. However there are a few gold items in my collection, and since Gold is the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Theme for June, I thought I would do a gold themed look with a video tutorial!

Violet Voss x Laura Lee Eye Shadow Palette

Hi guys! Oh my goodness you need this palette! I’m just going to cut straight to the chase, it’s amazing. Okay, now that I have that out of the way… I started seeing YouTuber Laura Lee’s collaboration with Violet Voss pop up all over the Snapchat of basically every beauty YouTuber that I follow. I had heard of her, but I hadn’t really watched any of her videos. I couldn’t believe how amazing this palette looked! The swatches looked super pigmented, and buttery smooth so I was instantly intrigued. I started watching her channel and was hooked! After watching her video where she talks about the palette in more detail, I knew I had to mark the pre-sale date on my calendar because I knew these babies would fly off the shelf. Boy, am I glad I did because I am in love!

The palette itself is mostly warm toned, but she did add a few cool toned shades as well to balance it out. There is a nice mix of mattes, shimmers and metallic shades so you have everything you need for a complete look. The palette is nice and compact so between that and the ability to do several different complete eye shadow looks with it, it would be great for travel. If you haven’t already seen it, you need to see her video on this where she talks about each shadow and why she picked each name. You can find that video here! A lot of the names are inspired by Alabama which is where she is from. I’m not sure if this was just for the pre-sale but the palette also came with a photo signed by Laura Lee herself which was a nice touch! Continue reading
