Quick & Easy Holiday Look

As far as holiday makeup looks go, this one is fairly straight-forward – it’s all about a red lip, gold, fluttery lashes & glowy skin. It’s kinda my version of makeup heaven. This look can be achieved with things you probably already have in your collection & can be adapted to your features. Want to do a cat eye? Be my guest. Want to skip that nose highlight? Good on ya. Don’t feel like applying lashes? Do ya thing, girl! (or guy!) All I ask is that you enjoy yourself, cause that’s what makeup is all about.

Ingrid Nilsen Inspired Hair + Makeup

Ingrid Nilsen, aka Miss Glamorazzi, has gone through a hell of transformation over the years that I have been watching her. She has undergone a person journey that has reflected through her video content, and it has been amazing to watch. Thanks to Ingrid I know about Tanya Burr and Estee Lalonde, aka Essie Button. Thanks to Ingrid I feel like it’s ok to be myself on the internet, and to talk about things that may be considered tabboo (though I haven’t really had the opportunity to ‘go there’). I think she is wonderful and lovely, and I feel inspired by her message for all of us to give ourselves our best chances, and to be our most authentic selves. She is a beautiful person, inside + out! So doing this little tribute to her was a no brainer.

Ingrid loves the NYX Matte lipstick in Indie Flick, a champagne eye and wavy hair, so I replicated that for this video!

Recent Every Day Makeup Routine

If we are being completely honest, I am a woman who highly covets sleep. I am a night owl that could stay up until who knows when and sleep until well after the sun comes up. Needless to say, the morning and I are not pals. I do a lot of things to make sure I can get a few extra zzzzz’s in the a.m., which is not limited to styling my hair the night before, choosing an outfit and even planning my makeup. Don’t tell me I am the only one to do the latter…right?

Anyways, I have recently gotten into a bit of a groove when it comes to the latter and that’s what I’m sharing with you today! A defined crease, a pretty lower lash line, a wing and some simple lips. This is perfect for work and for the days we just can’t be bothered. To amp this up, add lashes and a fun lip. See? Easy peasy.

Secret Garden Copycat

When I saw this video by Jaclyn Hill, I low key lost my mind. Not only were the new matte shades by Makeup Geek gorgeous, but I owned the very shimmery green and purple shadows she was using on her lid (insert happy dance!). It took me juuuuust about 12 hours to re-create the look and I am SO GLAD I did! I obviously don’t have the MUG mattes yet (they don’t come out until later this week), so I used what I had already, mixing and applying, praying the results would yield something similar to my girl JH. The green is a duochrome called Secret Garden and to be honest, I had no clue how I was going to make this shadow work but Jaclyn showed me the way with sandy browns, purples and even some poppy pink.

My version is below…I tweeted it (@AmberRae) and was stunned when Marlena herself RT’d it! I have been freaking out on the inside pretty much all day about it. I didn’t edit these at all, sometimes I will play with light to show true pigmentation but I didn’t need to for these. I hope you guys enjoy, and if you’d like a tutorial on this look let me know and I would be more than happy to film it for you! xoxo

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!

Zoella Inspired Autumn Makeup Look

When I first started watching YouTube, it didn’t take long to discover the adorable Zoella, aka Zoe Sugg. Everyone already knows who I am talking about, of course (she just hit 9 million subs, are you kidding me?!). Luckily, we share a love for Rimmel lipstick in 107 and can’t resist pairing it with a gold eye. Zoe recently shared a tutorial featuring a similar look and it inspired me to do one of my own. This lipstick gives me all the fall feels, and is perfect for this time of year.
