It's been a long time since I've done a two-minute transformation, so I thought it would be fun to do another one with fall colors. By coincidence, I ended up using all matte eyeshadows. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKJhPuHlJd0 The music in this video is by an awesome independent artist named Jasper Sawyer. Check out his YouTube page for all his music! I've linked to his channel in the video description. As for the products, well, I used quite a few: Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation in Ivory Nude NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Light 2 Vanilla beautyblender Anastasia Brow Pomade in Soft Brown Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powder in Dim Light Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Milani Coming Up Roses Blush in Awakening Rose Becca Highlighter in…

September Favorites 2014

September Favorites 2014

Videos
I had only a few favorites for September, but I just found myself reaching for the same things over and over again. Without further ado.... [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSa16APukVg&w=560&h=315] Here's a little more information about each of the products I talk about in the video (or just the TL;DR version for those who don't want to watch the whole video!): MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 - I couldn't find the contact lens case I was using to save the extra product that comes out of the pump (explanation in my review of this concealer), so I went for using the whole pump and using the excess to spot treat and prime my lids. Then I could go without foundation or BB cream! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (sample) - Ever since I…

FOTD, Tutorials and Tips
EDIT: I posted this a few days ago, but it posted to the date I began the draft...back in October! My apologies, and enjoy! Hi all, I wanted to show you one of my favorite looks so far for this season. I wore this to a holiday dinner a couple nights ago, and I was really hoping to have it up before Christmas in case you needed a simple holiday look as well, but alas... What's great about this look, though, is that you don't really need an "occasion" to use it because it's not over the top. I think a deep plum or berry lip would also look great with the gold eyes! Here's the final look: And here's how to do it: 1) Start off with your favorite…

Favorite October Outfits

Favorite October Outfits

OOTD, Style
Hi everyone, First off, I'd like to apologize for being sort of inconsistent this month. I've had a really hard time sleeping, and that keeps me from getting stuff done like blogging. I'm working on fixing this, so I hope to be better with it this month! I'm starting with my favorite outfits from October, and my October favorites will come next. As promised, I did a better job this month to make sure I actually took pictures of my outfits to share with you. I have four that I really liked. The weather had been a bit inconsistent lately, so there's a good mix of warm- and cold-weather outfits from the month. Outfit 1: I just love the colors on this sweater! I made sure to pair it with neutral…

Hey, all! I'm going to close out what turned into a fall mini-series, with what got me interested in beauty in the first place: nail polish! I love how great I feel when I have freshly-painted nails. It can make something a mundane as holding a pen feel more exciting. I love digging out my fall colors because it gets me so inspired and excited for fall weather and outfits! Hopefully this will give you a little inspiration, too :) Fall Colors with a Cream Finish Cooler weather doesn't mean you have to suck the color out of everything! Fall is the most colorful time of year, and you can draw from those colors to bring some life to your nails. https://flic.kr/p/qb5idL Colors shown: Revlon Top Speed in Vintage -…

Fall Blushes

Hi, everyone! Since you guys seemed to like my fall lips post, I thought I'd do the same thing for blushes and nail colors, too! So look out tomorrow for the nail colors. Let's get to the blushes... The "goes with everything" neutral https://flic.kr/p/qbcvEM I wrote a post about this Milani blush because I love the color, texture, and packaging of it! A mauve blush is great for fall because they're usually not necessarily warm- or cool-toned, so you can reach for it any morning knowing it will look great. I also love this brownish blush, NYX in Cocoa. It gives the cheeks a little color but can look much more toned down than a bright color. A natural pink https://flic.kr/p/qb6bgj Some might argue that there's no room for pink…

Fall Lipsticks

Fall Lipsticks

Fall, Lips, Product reviews, Seasonal
Hi! As the weather cools down, it seems like everyone's pulling out their "fall lipsticks," but what kinds of shades count as in season, and what if the typical fall shades don't seem to suit you? Well it turns out "fall lipsticks" can cover a lot of ground when it comes to shade selection, so I've chosen what I think are some basic color categories that will look great this season. Deep berry I feel like this color is what comes to mind first for a lot of girls when they think "fall lipstick." This kind of shade can flatter many different skin tones and look great during the cold weather months. My favorite deep berry is MAC's Rebel, but I'll go for the Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready…

Hi everyone, Autumn is taking a while to arrive in Pittsburgh, which is kind of nice compared to last year when it felt like we just went straight to winter. But in between heat waves I've gotten to experience a little bit of fall, so even though I'm typing this post wearing shorts, I'll be looking back to the last couple weeks for my responses! I was tagged to do this post by Tori from Notorious Beauty Blog. You should definitely check out her blog and YouTube channel! She's really sweet and gives such genuine reviews. Also, Tori: You mentioned in your tag that you're in SoCal for school...I'm from the Bay Area, so even though that's pretty far away it made me really happy. Now for the questions: 1)…

Hey, girls! The best time to catch sales is between seasons, as stores are trying to clear the shelves to make room for the next batch of stuff. I went to Target and Ulta a couple weeks ago and decided to try some products I haven't tried before, and went back to Ulta last weekend, so now I have two trips worth of products to show you! I don't usually like to shop at Ulta for drugstore products (it's often more expensive, and I'm not in love with their coupon and rewards systems), but it's worth it when there are any deals or sales going on. Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know my first impressions of these products as I've been starting to use them. Trip 1 - Target…

Nordstrom Rack Haul

Beauty hauls, Beauty steals, Style, Style hauls
Hey, everyone! You know I love a good deal. The other day, we were near a Nordstrom Rack, and I remembered that I had a cash back deal on my card, so I just had to check it out. I walked out with five items and over $130 in savings. First, the little things: https://flic.kr/p/qb6hBA I got a UD eyeshadow palette, a Stila eyeshadow, and a pair of earrings. I actually didn't even see that they had makeup until I was about to get in line to check out. Of course, I have no self control when it comes to discounted makeup. I mean, seriously: https://flic.kr/p/qbe6Eg DISCOUNTED. HIGH-END. MOTHER-EFFING MAKEUP. The UD palette I picked up is called the "Eyeshadow Ammo." It has a couple of shades that are also in…
