Boyfriend Does My Voice Over // Classic Holiday Glam

I enlisted the help of my sweet boyfriend to do voice over for this sparkly holiday makeup look! He surprisingly knows a lot & always manages to buy me super rad makeup as gifts. This video also kicks off the holiday season for my channel! I love a good bit of glitter paired with a red lip & this time of year is the perfect excuse. Enjoy!

HOW TO: Long Lasting Lip Color

Lisa Eldridge is the makeup goddess of all makeup goddesses, in my opinion. She is brilliant, having worked on countless clients (Kate Winslet is her bestie), appeared in magazines and on runways + currently serves as the Makeup Creative Director at Lancome. I love her philosophy of less is more and how fresh and modern all of her looks are. I think you can tell by now how much I admire this woman. Every film she puts out, I watch! I especially liked one that I am sharing with you today about how to achieve a long-wearing lip. The technique is great and I thought I would quickly show you how you can get it with any lip color you want. Even after the bulk of your lip color has worn off, your lips should still be beautifully stained.

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.

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!

Kendall Jenner Poppy Lip

Shout out to Kendall Jenner + the makeup Godesses over at Estee Lauder for creating a truly beautiful matte Poppy lipstick shade! Generally I stay away from mattes as they can be fairly drying but this is just so beautiful I couldn’t help myself when I saw it was for sale. I went a little wild recently with makeup purchases recently (evidenced partially by my Polar Purchases post) and felt the need to showcase them in a video!

Products, pictures + music info listed down below, as always! Hope you enjoy this one 🙂
