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!

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.

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

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.

Sparkly Purple Smoke

Another weekend, another Makeup Geek Sparkler to try out. I apologize for the redundancy but I only bought two of these babies and can’t pull them off in the workplace, so they have taken over my last couple uploads. But for good reason – they’re gorgeous! Enjoy this one, a purple smoky situation using Kat Von D’s new Shade + Light blush, and the Makeup Forever HD Foundation in liquid form rather than a stick – I made the switch and my dry skin is SO much happier!

Sparkly Green Liner

The red lip is a little played out for the holidays, am I right?! I mean, I won’t lie, I LOVE a bold red lip but sometimes we want to play up the eyes instead with a little green when you’re feeling festive. This look focuses on an insanely cheap eyeliner by NYC that I was actually gifted last year and it is gorgeous! Perfect for this look.

Rainy Day Lunch Date

A couple of week ago I filmed this GRWM for a lunch date! I intended to go very light but you’ll see, it did not happen. The photo used for this post was from another date, as I genuinely didn’t have enough time to snap any pics for this post! But it is from a lunch date I had with my sister, hence the smile on the face.
