The Ordinary Foundation First Impression & Salem Vlog

Welcome to a weird two-in-one video! I wanted to test out the new Ordinary foundation on a day when we were adventuring to Salem so I made this combo vlog slash first impression video. Spoiler alert: Salem was INSANELY busy during October but it was a good thing to check off our collective bucket lists. The main reason we went was to see the It’s Alive! exhibit at the Peabody Essex museum, which is a small collection of items from Kirk Hammett’s much larger collection of horror/sci-fi pieces. The journey was long, parking was treacherous and it was packed but it was certainly an experience. As for the foundation? You’ll have to watch and find out!

GRWM // Red Sox Game

Hey guys! I was genuinely kind of in a rush had to do my makeup, no time to play around. I had to go with a standby look so I obviously stuck with neutrals and a cat eye, topped off with a festive Sox red lip! Even though we lost, I still had a pretty silly time drinking Sam’s Summer, wolfing down a Fenway Frank and dancing to alllll the up-at-bat songs. I have listed the products below! xoxo

Chit Chatty GRWM + Life Updates

Hi you guys! I’m back! If you didn’t know, I took a little break because I just wasn’t feeling it. And I didn’t want to film or do anything relative to YT, but I think that breaks are good! I was also sick, and I traveled to see my sister to be her date to the Marine Ball so the past couple weeks have been busy. Anyways, I posted on my Facebook just letting people know I was feeling uninspired, and the outpouring of love I got blew my mind. The support was unreal, and there was no way I could walk away from something I not only enjoy, but it turns out that it brings joy to others, too! 🙂

Here’s a little Get Ready With Me that I filmed the other day. I had just received my November Ipsy bag, so I used a bunch of those items in this look! Not going to lie, I couldn’t help myself and talked basically the entire time so it’s a long one. Love you guys!

Game Day Makeup // New England Patriots

I have become a ride or die Patriots fan. Something happened to me within the last 6 years and I am forever changed…I now care when we make a play, listen (begrudgingly, mostly) to sports radio and follow a multitude of Patriots twitter feeds. I’m in, and I’m in it for real. I can’t pass up an opportunity to rock a red lip and lucky for me, one of the Pats’ colors is red. This is a look I like to wear during game day, and am always looking for new ways to wear my team’s colors. THIS LOOK’S A TOUCHDOWN! It’s ok, I hate me for that one too.

Here’s a quick Get Ready With Me on today’s game day!

Green + Gold Fall Makeup // Makeup Geek Duochrome

For today’s look I used a couple Makeup Geek Duochrome eye shadows! I used a couple of the lighter, more user friendly shades this week at work but have been dying to get my paws on the darker shades, which I think pack more of a duochrome punch. In addition to the eyes I wanted to use a Colour Pop liquid lipstick – the color is stunning and totally fits the look, but they are a little drying (FYI!). If you have requests, let me know!

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.
