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

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!

Face of the Day: Warm Smokey Eye


Hey lovelies,

Time for a face of the day post 🙂
I’m trying to do these posts 1-2 times a week. I have fun with them, and I do seem to receive great feedback when I do them.

Anyway, today I’m having a typical “me” day. I sat down thinking I was going to do something simple and light and finished with a smokey eye. Oops.

I used a few colors from my Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack and a few from my Kat Von D Shade + Light eye palette. I used “blurr” and “unseen” from the dark matter stack, and then used a few brown shades, the burgundy shade, and a little bit of black from the Shade Light.


My face today is Nars All Day Luminous, and now that I have figured out how to make this work on my dry skin I absolutely adore it. It did take me a bit to figure out how to make it work on my skin though.

For contouring I laid down a cream contour with my Nyx wonder stick in “light” and set that with the cool brown shade in my Wet n Wild contour palette (mine is dulce de leche). For blush and highlight I went with the new Wet n Wild Silver Lake trio in “sunset junction.” I have a review of these coming up, but let me just say that I am obsessed with the highlighting shade in this trio so far. It is shimmery and slightly pink and flatters my skin tone…I would’ve paid the $4 just for that highlight. #truelove



On my brows is the Ofra cosmetics “universal” eyebrow pencil set with Nyx’s tinted brow mascara in “black.” Yes, I know one of my brows is looking a bit odd…I’m trying to let them grow out a bit so I can reshape them. It’s driving me bonkers.

I put on a coat of a new (not in stores yet) mascara by Covergirl, and my lashes are Kiss lashes #11. My liner is my physicians formula eye booster in ultra black as usual, and my water line is Nyx Tres Jolie gel liner.

Bottom lash line is smoked out into an oblivion using the same colors on my top lid.


Originally, I had gray lips and I didn’t like how it looked. So, I changed it to “Melted Chihuahua” by Too Faced. I didn’t want to get this color because the name freaks me out, but I swatched it in Ulta and needed it. I guess it’s okay since no chihuahuas were actually melted in the making of this lipstick.

Oh, and I have a new septum clicker 🙂 Yes, my baby loves to try and pull on it. Mom life.

That’s about it for today’s face of the day! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Review + Look: Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack


Some people get their partners chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day, mine got me makeup…and flowers. I’ve been legitimately lusting over the Melt Cosmetics stacks since they came out. They’re just so perfect and right up my alley. Matte, grungy, cruelty free…and expensive. Everything I love is so expensive it seems. So, Jeremy told me to order it a few weeks ago, and I was ecstatic!

I have never stalked a tracking code so hard. Okay, that’s a bit of a lie…but I was very excited.
Let me first say that the shipping was super quick! It took about 2 days to arrive at my door, and it came in a cute black box that was very well protected.


If you’re not familiar with Melt Cosmetics, they’re mostly known for their matte lipsticks, it seems. However, they came out with these eyeshadow “stacks” that seem to have taken the instagram world by storm. I’ve seen them everywhere, and it’s made it hard to get them out of my mind. The stack itself is composed of 4 shadows that are magnatized, and the top is a mirror, which I found pretty nifty.

The shades include Blurr, Unseen, Enigma, and Dark Matter. There is another stack called the “Lovesick” stack, but it’s not exactly my style. I wanted the grungier stack.

Price $48 at

About the formula These are extremely matte shadows. When I swatched them I noticed they are so matte they seem a bit dry and patchy, and that concerned me. However, once I applied them to my eyelids I noticed these are very easy to blend and super pigmented. I have never worked with matte shadows as pigmented as these that are also easy to blend. Sometimes with matte shadows if you try to build them up the look appears chalky and it becomes harder to blend…I didn’t have that problem with these.

How they wear They wear very well and did not budge on me. They didn’t smear or look dry after a few hours. All around amazing in terms of how they wear. I do try out all shadows with a primer, because that’s how I always wear my eyeshadow.

Any Tips? If you have dry eyelids like me, you may want to use a creamier base like a concealer and top it off with a bit of setting powder. The setting powder will make it easier to blend out the colors. I also moisturize my eyelids every morning as well…because I was genetically blessed with snake skin lids.

Swatches Like I said before, these shadows are very matte and it was hard to get smooth swatches on my skin.


From left to right: Blurr, Unseen, Enigma, Dark Matter

Blurr- a very light brown that I think can be used as a perfect crease color, but it’s purpose is supposed to be to “blurr” anything that needs to be blurred in a look since the other colors are so dark.

Unseen- A darker warm brown. I adore this shade. It’s everything I love in warm brown shades. I feel this would be an ideal shade to do cut creases with, which is probably what I will try next.

Enigma- Probably the main reason why I wanted this stack. A rusty red shade. Very “color of the year.” I am obsessed with this color. So pigmented and pretty.

Dark Matter- your standard matte black shadow. This is super black. Like the blackest shadow I have ever owned…and that includes the Kat Von D matte black shadows. If you use this for a smokey eye, be wary and tap your brush or risk turning into a panda. A matte black is always handy in sets like this, in my opinion.



This is a look I did using all 4 colors in the stack. I did use “blurr” to blur out the outside and smooth any harsh lines out, and it did just that!

Overall I absolutely adore this stack. From the packaging concept to the colors themselves…I am so happy that I finally own this. I’m a grungy girl at heart that loves a great smokey eye, and this stack has everything I need to do that without having to reach for multiple single shadows and palettes.

If you own this, tell me your thoughts on it? Link me to your reviews and looks?
