June Sephora Play Box

This month’s box of goodies is an excellent one! A glowy primer, some skin care, a liquid bronzer, a (pretty meh) cult favorite mascara & a lovely perfume. I can report that the SPF, primer and bronzer are all very nice. The perfume is nicely scented without being too much and the mascara is fine. Not my number one but it’s ok. Let me know how you like this kind of video, if at all!

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 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.

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.

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.

Peachy Glowy Sping Makeup

Who doesn’t want glowy, gorgeous, healthy looking skin?! No one, is the answer. In today’s video I show you a few of the skin care + makeup steps I take when I want to have skin that looks like an angel’s. I’m going to toot my own horn here for a sec… I couldn’t stop looking at my skin in the light the day I recorded this because it looked so dang good.

Gray Liner & Purple Lip

I wanted to try something new + use a couple products I don’t usually use – a gray gel liner + my MAC Pure Heroine lipstick. I thought the combination wold be unusual + a bit vampy, and I think that’s exactly how it turned out! I spent a lot of time making sure the wing + lip were crisp, often going over the same spot over + over again to ensure good color pay off + nice, even lines.
