The Sephora VIB Rouge sale starts tomorrow (4/16/15 for VIBs and 4/17/15 for Beauty Insiders) and of course my cart runneth over. I have put together my ultimate wish list, which includes the elusive Viseart eye shadow palette and a replacement for my shattered Becca highlighter in Opal. Now it’s time for the hard part…narrowing it down.
Jennifer Lopez is always shutting it down during awards season. Things were no different at the 2015 Oscars. She wore a gorgeous nude Elie Saab gown and paired it with a colorful and fresh makeup look that had us all asking “is it spring yet?” Hopefully things start to warm up sooner rather than later. In the meantime, check out my recreation of J. Lo’s Oscar makeup.
My first monthly favorites of the year features what I have been loving from my recent hauls. Tarte’s tartelette palette is everything! Didn’t think I’d be into all matte looks until I tried its mix of neutrals and plums. The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow palette makes me feel red carpet worthy. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve spotted this on celebrity makeup artists Instagram accounts before I broke down and made one my own.

My latest haul features enough contour products to make me unrecognizable; the goal of any respectable beauty routine. Just kidding! Lol. But seriously, it seems like everyday a different beauty company launches a new product to capitalize on the contouring trend. Click here to see the latest items I’ve added to my collection plus a few bonus goodies. Continue reading →
I caught a glimpse of Jennifer Lopez’s makeup at the Golden Globes and I was immediately inspired to create a smokey eye with my new Tartelette matte eye shadow palette. That woman can do no wrong! 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.
Here is the next installment from my holiday makeup tutorial series with thefancyfaced. We created looks featuring the signature red lips that so many of us like to wear during this time of year. I used my latest addition to my red lipstick collection – NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. It is a gorgeous deep red. I absolutely love the formula! Although it is matte it does not dry my lips as much as some of my other matter lipsticks from other brands. It is very comfortable and lightweight while giving great color payoff with one layer. You don’t feel like you’re wearing anything. I’m having a bit of a NARS moment. Can’t get enough of their stuff lately! And did you see the sneak peek of their upcoming launches that Eva Chen (Lucky’s Editor-in-chief) posted on her Instagram?
My mouth is practically watering #beautyjunkieproblems.
