Shaaanxo Palette Tutorial

Hey beauties,

Remember this look that I posted in my Shaaanxo palette review? Well, I decided to film a tutorial on it!

Blue brownish shades are ones that seem to be very loved among many, so I wanted to do a different take on it. With the pop of color on the lower lash line and with blue brown lips.

You can also see this palette in action in the video.

All products and brushes are listed down in the description box underneath the video. I hope you all enjoy this look as much as I did creating it!

As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope that if you’re new to my blog you will consider sticking around or subscribing to my channel.

I hope you’re all having lovely days.

Face of the Day: Morphe 35O Palette

Morphe 35O palette

Hey lovelies,

It’s Thursday, and I do have a Face of the Day post for you all! I have been wanting to share several looks using the Morphe 35O palette for awhile now, so that’s what I’m doing today! Yes, I fought the presale madness to get this palette. I actually ordered this within the first 15 mins and didn’t get a shipping code until a few weeks later. So, if you still haven’t received yours, be patient. I’ve seen some pretty rude comments on the Morphe page lately. They were clear about when they would be shipping presale orders, so I was actually surprised when I received mine randomly instead of getting it a few weeks ago, like I had planned.

I will say this palette is worth the wait though, and I will be posting swatches of it very very soon!

Today’s look is very warm, and involves orange shades on fair skin. Gasp! I know, a year ago I wouldn’t have dared put orange on my eyes, but the past few months have opened my makeup heart a bit, and I have been wanting to play with more warm tones. Honestly, if there’s a shade that you want to wear, just go for it. Confidence is everything, and sometimes a bold (or warm, in my case) change in style is what you need to shake things up.

IMG_2949 morphe 35O

Primer: Nivea Men’s Post Shaving Balm

Foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum mixed with Manic Panic’s dream tone. Yes, I still use dewy foundations in Fall. Even though this foundation is a bit too yellow for me, I’m determined to use it and another foundation up before I can justify getting the new Too Faced Born This Way foundation.

Concealer: Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in Chantilly

Powders: Laura Geller Balance and Brightening Powder in Porcelain and Elf HD undereye setting powder.

Bronzer: Tarte’s Park Ave. Princess Bronzer. I really love this bronzer and the warmth it brings to my face.

Contour: Nyx HD blush in “taupe.”

Blush: Milani’s “Awakening Rose” blush. Ah, I haven’t worn this in like…two weeks? I love this blush, we all know that.

Highlight: Nyx’s “Ritualistic” illuminator. I brought this back out after seeing it compared to Nar’s “Albatross” highlight. This is a gorgeous white gold highlight that flatters multiple skin tones, including fair skin tones.

Brows: Nyx tame and frame brow in “espresso” set with their brow mascara in black.

Primer: Hard Candy eye primer

Palette of choice: Morphe 35O palette. I wish I could give names, but I just did my usual style of eye makeup to test this bad boy out. I used a warm transition shade, one of the bright oranges in this palette after that, and then mixed that with a orange-y brown lower in the crease. I used a pink shimmer shade on the lid and a dark brown smoked out on the outter v of the eye.

Liner & Lashes: Liner is actually “War of Five Armies” by Shiro Cosmetics. I use this as liner often, because it’s a gorgeous reddish brown shade. I mixed the loose shadow with Medusa Makeup’s liner medium and flicked it out. Lashes are the Ardell Double Wispies. Mascara used on top and bottom lashes was Maybelline Lash Sensational lashes.

Lower Lash line: I put War of Five Armies in my water line while it was still wet and took the orange and an orange-y brown shade and smoked that out into an oblivion. I mean, we should be used to this by now from me. It’s just what I like.

Lipstick: Black Moon Cosmetics “Libra” lined with Nyx’s “Nude Truffle.” I promise I have a review on these coming soon, I just really wanted to test them out and I am a bit behind on posts because I got sick and I’ve been wanting to spend more time playing outside with my kids. I do love this shade though, it’s the perfect everyday Fall nude for my skin tone!

Necklace is from Worship 13 🙂 it’s the Vintage witch cat pendant!

That’s it for today’s look! I hope you all enjoyed this warm look, and next week I will be showing a few simple last minute costumes to put together for Halloween. Because as a mom I know the Halloween struggle of getting everyone else’s costumes perfect and then the day of Halloween thinking, “Okay, but what about me?” Ha!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

I uploaded my September Favorites, a Halloween Tag, and most recently another Fall Glam tutorial. I really hope you all enjoy them, and if you’re not subscribed to my channel, you should be!

I’m kidding, only subscribe if you want to. It does give you a chance to see when I first upload new videos. I’ve been uploading twice a week right now, and I’m hoping it stays like that for awhile.

New Makeup Tutorials!

Hey beauties,

First off, Happy October! September kind of flew by for me, but it’s okay since my favorite holiday is almost here! I’ll more than likely be trick or treating with my kids, but I’m truly excited because Harmony is now old enough to pick out her own costume. Lately, she’s been obsessed with Tim Burton films and weird clay-mation movies, so I’m eager to see what she has in mind.

I do not have a detailed “Face of the Day” post this week as I’m trying to catch up on a few things I need to film so I can finally start on Halloween tutorials and blog posts! I do, however, have a few new tutorials on my Youtube channel! One is very glamorous, and the other is very dark and bold. Kinda grungy, still kinda glamorous.

I hope you all enjoy them! If you’re not subscribed to my channel, you should be! You can see when I upload new videos first and come chat with me!

  1. Too Faced Stardust palette & the Vegas Nay Grand Glamor Lashes

This tutorial is the more “Fall glam” look. It’s really not very hard to achieve, but the lashes really steal the show in this look, in my honest opinion. They take the look from everyday to “bam!”

I do have a full product list underneath the description. If you’re curious about the Too Faced and Vegas Nay Stardust palette, I have a full review with swatches here.

2. Warm Eyes + Black Lips ft. Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack

pretty zombie cosmetics black cat IMG_2357

I’ll be honest, this is probably my favorite tutorial I have done so far. It was really fun to create, and it’s very bold, yet very simple to achieve. Those are my favorite kinds of looks, honestly. The ones that anyone can do and do a bit messily and them still look glamorous. I haven’t used my Dark Matter stack in awhile, and I paired it with a few indie shadows to keep this look mostly vegan on the eyes and lips, other than the Nyx inner corner highlight. I do have a review of the Dark Matter stack here if you want to see if I feel this 4 color magnetic palette is worth the hype.

Full details and products are under the description for this look as well!

That’s it for what’s new on my Youtube channel! Which is your favorite look? If you have any requests, please let me know!

As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

FOTD: Fall Inspired (Video Tutorial Included)

IMG_1906

Hey lovelies,

This week’s face of the day post is actually a video tutorial! I really wanted to do a fall inspired tutorial, and I’ve been feeling these wine and plummy red shades lately, so I decided to just smack those colors right on my eyeballs and lips.

Ever have one of those days where it’s just not a good selfie day? I was having one of those days, but I’m overall happy with how this look turned out, other than the fact that I somehow forgot to include an inner corner highlight. I wasn’t going to not upload this based on just that, but it’s all good. I think it looks fine without it.

Anyway, I really wanted to do a video tutorial using the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. It’s one that I use so often, but so many of the shades remind me of Fall. That and many of the shades in this palette are reminiscent of a few Lorac palettes and the Naked 3 palette, so it’s an awesome money saver without skimping out on quality! I always talk about how amazing it is, so I decided to put my brush where my mouth is and show you all. Okay, I put my brush where…my eye is?? You know what I mean.

Maybelline Blur and Illuminate Primer

Night Time Smokey Eyes: Collab w/ Hello Kaily

IMG_1230

Hey lovelies,

Sorry that I did not have a Face of the Day post up this week! It’s been a bit of a busy week, and let’s just say that some fun things are coming to my blog and Youtube channel next month! Anyway, I did post a new video on my Youtube channel, and it’s a tutorial! Even better, it’s a collaboration, so you can watch two tutorials!

If you tuned in last week, Kaily and I collabed with our favorite Wet n Wild products, so this week we posted a day and night look. Kaily did the day time look (which is gorgeous btw) and I did the night time look.Okay, this is a look I wear often no matter what time of the day it is, but it’s smokey and sultry.  Kaily stayed true to the one brand and actually used only Wet n Wild products, and I kinda cheated. However, I did try to stick to only drugstore brands/affordable brushes if I couldn’t use a Wet n Wild product. My skin texture is a bit different, and some of the concealers and such don’t work out for my skin, and I didn’t want to use it and pretend like I think they’re awesome when truthfully I don’t.  It’s also the look I was wearing in last week’s video, just a different lip color.

The key to looks like this is to constantly add, layer, blend, and repeat. I know the word “blend” gets annoying after a bit (I practically hate the word at this point) but it is really crucial, and changes the look and shape completely.

I hope you all enjoyed our two part collab, and I have Kaily’s video and channel linked in the description box under my video. Be sure to check her out if you haven’t already!

Face of the Day: Purple + Graphic liner

IMG_8171

Hey loves,

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another weekly Face of the Day post! However, this week I actually filmed this look. I was feeling inspired and had a bit of free time (aka the babies were sleeping) so I sat down and played with makeup. I was feeling inspired by several things, the color purple and one of my favorite youtubers, ReeRee Phillips. If you’re not subscribed to her, she does very goth looks, but they are somehow artsy and wearable…or at  least wearable to me. There’s something enchanting about her makeup tutorials, so if you’re not subscribed to her, check her out. I also love that she uses classical music as the background for her videos…I can only handle that whistling song so many times. I’m just being honest.

Face of the day: Revealed 2 Palette 

  

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette is one of my favorites. I love the mauve and browns in this palette…it’s just so perfect in every way! I also haven’t shown this palette any love in a bit because of all the new palettes I’ve added (oops) so today I’m showing this beauty some love! 

  

  

This is a really simple “mauve smokey eye” I did today using most of the matte shades in the palette. I have the deep mauve shade on the lid and the lighter pink shade as a transition shade. I put the chocolate brown shade in the crease to deepen the mauve shade a bit and then placed the reddish brown shade on the outter portion of my eye. I blended until my arm was gonna fall off with this look. 

 

I used my trusty physicians formula eye booster pen to create a wing and my lashes are Kara #43. 

On the lower lash line I blended the light and dark mauve shades together and placed the dark brown on the outer part. My waterline is Rimmel scandal eyes in “nude.”

On my face is Nyx blush in “taupe” to contour and I used my Pixi “subtly sunned” bronzer to warm up my face a bit (unusual for me, yes) 

Blush is colourpop “prenup” which is a really pretty mauve type of color and highlight is by physicians formula

Brows are an ofra brow pencil that came in my lip monthly bag this month. More info on it next week!

Lips are colourpop’s lippie stick and pencil in “brink” 

Everything was set with my urban decay all nighter spray.

Welp, that’s about it for today’s face of the day! I hope you all enjoyed!
