Makeup Tutorial: Kim Kardashian | Grammys 2015

Kim-Kardashian-Grammys-2015-Makeup

I got my Kim K on and tried the look she wore to the Grammys this year. The eyes were completely shimmery, which is a totally different style from what I normally wear. It was a top pick when I asked who had your favorite look of the night on Instagram so I gave it a try. I loved the result and think this would be great for a date night. I can say that with confidence because it’s Kanye approved lol. Check out the tutorial here.

New Year, New You Makeup Haul

Glamglow Thirstycleanse Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

New year, new me! That’s what we all say, right? I’m currently fighting my soda addiction by going cold turkey. It is day four and I feel like I need to scratch little tally marks on my desk or something for each day I go without a sip. I’m definitely going to need at least a little medal for this or something. Soda is one of my greatest vices, second only to my love for makeup, which fortunately can’t kill me. Anyway, I pretty much went off the deep end hauling ever since the holidays came around and there were tons of deals and new launches encouraging me to makeover my stash. Check out my video to see what I picked up. I am especially excited about my new Charlotte Tilbury makeup! I had been coveting one of the items for months on end and it turned out to be everything I wanted it to be. Gotta love those moments.

I knew I was doing a sexy themed video later that night so this look was perfect! As I mentioned in the tutorial, I saved a bunch of pictures of J. Lo’s look so I will be recreating it with this palette soon.

Makeup Tutorial: Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

New palette and time on my hands means playing in front of the camera. Seems like the jury is still out on the Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette but I was certainly a fan of the colors I used to create this look. If you are looking for a comparison, I would say that the texture of most of the shadows I tried were very similar to the Lorac Pro palettes. It is certainly a great value but you could pay more for a more creamy/buttery product. Which side of the fence are you on?

5 Minute Makeup Challenge

5 Minute Makeup Challenge

I challenged myself to do a full face of makeup in a quarter of the time it takes me to do a “quick” look…5 minutes. Just ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that it is not possible for me to get ready that quickly. It’s a sickness lol. Did I make it? Click here to find out.
