Get Ready With Me! // Shaaanxo by BH Cosmetics Palette

Even though my love for getting ready for a night out is deep and true and pure and I like to take my time, that certainly doesn’t always happen. This video is case in point and rears it’s head towards the end as I am delicately clutching a lash letting the glue get tacky while highlighting my face… listen, it’s real life and I know we have all been there. I really, really like the way the makeup turned out even though getting there wasn’t the most relaxing experience of my life.

Let’s talk about the palette itself for a second, shall we? Shaaanxo has become a serious addiction for me over the last, I don’t know, maybe year. I watch her daily vlogs, regular beauty videos and follow her on Snapchat. I find her to be super talented, refreshingly honest, hardworking and also happens to be a dime. So when she released this palette, it was a no-brainer…I needed it and I needed it yesterday.

The Good: As I mention in the video, many of the shadows remind me of Makeup Geek shades, which isn’t a bad thing. The colors are pretty and work well together. They especially come to life with some Fix+ spray.

The Bad: I do have a couple complaints, however. I had a lot of fall out the first few times I used the shadows and still experience mild fall out but that’s not a deal breaker. I also wish there was a more neutral transition shade, as the mustard shade is a bit bright on my light skin for day to day wear. If there was a brown I would probably never use another palette again. The lipsticks are beautiful but do not appear in the lips as they do on the pan.

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!

Get Ready With Me // Blue Mascara

Today I decided to film my fairly quick + easy makeup application! It’s Sunday and I wanted to use a small amount of makeup, and use a beautiful blue mascara made by NYX that I have had sitting in my collection for who knows how long. This is the look I came up with, focusing on clear skin and a very fun pop of color on the eyes!

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.

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 🙂
