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!

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!

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.

Smokin’ Hot

I’m really having a Gray moment. Maybe it’s all the dreary New England weather but who cares, I’m loving it. So much so that I had to paint my nails Essie’s Smokin’ Hot AND film a tutorial for a gray smokey eye. Smokey eyes really aren’t as complicated as everyone thinks they are – you just need a few shades of the same color & to blend the heck out of it! I hope this tutorial is helpful & inspires smokey eye confidence. I used gray but you can really use any color your heart desires – purple is one of my favorites! Please leave any questions or comments down below. Enjoy! xx
