Monochromatic Peachy Pink Spring Makeup

Loved creating this soft peachy look perfect for warmer weather using a couple shiny pretty products I was dying to use…Stila’s Magnificent Metal Eyes in Kitten and Makeup Geek’s In the Spotlight. I shamelessly watch Shaaanxo’s Vlogs every single day and she uses this Stila product often in the inner corner and it always looks incredible on her! I realized that I used waaaaaay too much on this day but whatever. I also rocked what I like to call the Accidentally Aggressive Cat Eye. Whatcha gon’ do.

Simple GRWM Featuring Miami Fever

As I was getting ready today I decided to turn on my camera and film this SUPER simple, easy Get Ready With Me using Kathleen Lights’ latest collaboration (this time with Ofra Cosmetics) – a gorgeous Burnt Orange liquid lipstick called Miami Fever. While it has been quite cool and rainy here in my slice of New England, I decided to slather this shade all over my lips and I am pumped that I did. It is so great for the upcoming Autumn season! I find that the lipstick itself doesn’t ever completely set, as I was smooching my niece this afternoon and did notice orange transfer on her sweet little nose, but the color is stunning.

This was a legit GRWM so I didn’t have time to take proper photos or film an intro…I’ll do better next time.

Taylor Swift 2015 VMAs Makeup

Did y’all watch the VMAs last week? While I am an enthusiast of many kinds of music, pop music will always have a very special place in my heart. I love it, I live for it, the music, the videos, the drama, the sass. I can’t help myself. I was that kid who set up my stuffed animals to perform Mariah Carey concerts and created and sold fake concert tickets at age 6. I have always loved pop music, and what goes along with that better than award shows?! The VMAs is where I saw Justin Timberlake’s first solo performance in 2002, and in 2009 I realized just how incredible talented Lady Gaga is.

Now that I have an eye for people’s makeup, I find that I am always checking out the contours, shadows and lips of the VMAs attendees, and T Swift’s flawless makeup instantly drew my attention. So, I have recreated it! I loved creating this look on the fly, and loved the looks I got throughout the day even more. The only person to compliment my look, aside from my sweet boy, was the dry cleaner. He was very impressed and I thought it was so sweet that he took a moment to let me know how beautiful he thought my eyes were :p

Chatty Makeup Application Featuring Flawless Foundation Routine

This base makeup has been my go to as of late and has been working like a dream! From the primer to the setting spray, it lasts a super long time and looks great even when I am ready to wash it off. Could be the Champagne Pop, who knows. I decided to do a chatty Get Ready With Me and boy oh boy, can I talk. I knew I had the gift of gab already but damn, I had to edit this video down and I still came out with about 20 minutes of footage! Grab a drink and settle in!

Navy Liner + Glitter!

If I am being 100% real with you all, I must confess that I felt hella inspired by Katy Perry to do this look. I am the girl who has loved KP wholeheartedly from the beginning. I bought her album, I got her stickers, I saw her in person at Warped Tour but after getting rained on decided to skip her set because “she’ll be back”. After being a freakin’ megastar. Anyways, I got tickets for her Prismatic World Tour with a girlfriend last year and finally had the opportunity to see her. At the Garden. Girl’s got skills.

Her Prismatic World Tour made it onto my most favorite place, Netflix, so naturally I put it on and ate it all up. And then filmed this look because glitter is pretty and she wears it and I had some in my drawer from an Ipsy bag.

Meghan Trainor Dear Future Husband Video Look + Foolproof Cat Eye Trick

Guys, I am on a serious Meghan Trainor kick. When her album first came out a few months ago it was on heavy rotation but then, as it always happens, I put her on the back burner. The recent release of her video for the song “My Future Husband” has put her album back into my life! Aside from the song being super cute + catchy, the makeup in this video is my idea of perfection – cat eyes, bright lips + contours. To me, it doesn’t get much better than that! The look I chose from the video is actually the thumbnail + the photo that comes up most often when  you Google image search Meghan Trainor My Future Husband. To watch the video, click here.

In this video I show you a foolproof way to accomplish a cat eye! All you need is some tape + whatever eyeliner poison you prefer – gel, liquid, pencil or even eyeshadow for a soft wing. You really can’t screw it up using this method, it makes it so easy to create a wing, big or small.

Ariana Grande Grammy’s Tutorial

Today’s look is inspired by the lovely Ariana Grande! She generally rocks a cat eye, nude lips and not much on the face. I threw on a pair of feline lashes for some added drama, which is totally optional. I added a bit of Hoola bronzer as well but I forgot to press play when I did so you just don’t see the application of it, but it’s there. Ariana is much more golden than I am so I wanted to duplicate that a little bit. This look is insanely simple + you should all try it! The picture I used for reference is below!
