A Week of the Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

Hi guys! While I posted my first impressions of the Morphe’s collaboration with YouTuber, Jaclyn Hill, over the weekend, I thought today I would share with you five different looks that I created using it. There’s definitely many, many different possibilities with this palette but these are the first five that I created! I still have many more that I want to create but if I kept going this post would never go up.

Crease: Pooter
Lid: Meeks
Outer-V: Mocha

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Hi guys! Today I’ve got my first impressions of the beautiful Anastasia x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit for you! Given that I love Anastasia Beverly Hills, the YouTuber Nicole Guerriero and highlighters, this purchase just seemed to tick off all the boxes. As well, these highlight shades seemed really quite unique to my collection as they are quite warm in tone. While I have seen some backlash on collaborations with YouTubers and so on, I personally think they are a great thing. Who wouldn’t want to collaborate with one of their favourite brands? I can only imagine it must be such a huge honour and career milestone for these people who started off with a camera and an internet connection. So, with that said, if it is a YouTuber I watch and a product that I think I would enjoy, I am more than happy to support it.

YouTube Made Me Buy It

youtube

Hi guys! The concept of the “YouTube Made Me Buy It!” post is nothing new, but I haven’t done one yet and as an avid YouTube-watcher I thought this would be fun! So let’s take a stroll through some of my past makeup purchases that I was convinced I needed from watching YouTube!

Too Faced | Chocolate Bar Palette

When I started getting into watching YouTube more, this product was already out. I wasn’t convinced I needed it right away as I had all three of the Urban Decay Naked palettes already. But, KathleenLights won me over with her constant praise of this palette. Do I regret buying it? Not at all, I love this palette! Plus, it smells like chocolate.

L’Oreal | Pro-Matte Foundation

I am someone who needs a matte foundation so when I started to see this pop-up all over YouTube I knew I needed to try it. I believe I first saw it on Young, Wild & Polished’s channel. Do I regret buying it? Nope! This is my go-to drugstore foundation. I’ve probably gone through 5 or 6 tubes of this! Continue reading

MOTD: Warm & Vampy

laura-lee-violet-loss-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.

Products Used:

Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm in Sensitive
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)
Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Blush: Becca x Jaclyn Hill – Amaretto
Bronzer: Tarte Park Avenue Princess
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop layered with theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer on top
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)
Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Heathers

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!

Ipsy Glam Bag: June

Ipsy-Glam-Bag-June-2016.jpg

Hi guys! It’s time for another Ipsy Glam Bag! I have really been enjoying subscribing to Ipsy. At first I wasn’t sure about subscription services because I figured, for what I spend on it a year, I could buy something full-sized from Sephora which I would probably use/enjoy more. However, while I still do kind of think that because I don’t always use all my samples up, I think they are great for trying new brands/products! I love waiting to see what kind of items they have sent me and I’ve got a lot of winners so far! You can check out my other Ipsy Glam Bags here!

While my eye is still not completely healed, I decided to film my Ipsy bag anyways because it is feeling significantly better today and is much less red. I keep saying I’m going to “film my next Ipsy Glam Bag” and then something happens which causes me to have to write the post instead, but this time, eye-be-damned, I’m filming! At least my eye is much less sensitive to sunlight today, I think I will actually be able to leave the house in daylight! If you didn’t read my last post, I talked about what happened to my eye and you can find that post here! I haven’t filmed in awhile so I am a bit rusty so it is very short but I’ll get back into the swing of things!
