Tutorial: 1920’s Moviestar Glam

img_4260

Hey everyone! Today’s tutorial is pretty exciting for me because it’s definitely out of my comfort zone. I tend to focus on natural and basic looks most of the time, but sometimes it’s fun to get out of the box! I wore this eye makeup to work one day and my coworkers thought it looked a little bit like the makeup of 1920’s movie starlets. I took the idea and ran with it, creating this ultra-glam and shimmery look for a day at work and a night on the town. Read on for the tutorial! Continue reading

The Look: Wearing the Fullmetal Alchemist Pocket Watch

IMG_4206.jpg

As many of you know, I’m quite a lover of all things nerdy and consume tons of media in my free time. I’m a big anime fan (see my Sailor Jupiter look), and my favorite one of all time is Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. My friends know of my total obsession with this show (what’s wrong with re-watching something every single year?) and I was recently given a great prop from the show! Thanks so much for the perfect gift from my bestie! I found that Edward Elric’s pocket watch is not only a fun thing to own, but makes a great accessory! So I am writing this post to share a few ways that I’ve worn it in the last week. Read on for my looks! Continue reading

Tutorial: Daytime Smoky Eye

Winter is in full force here in Chicago, and I’m holding on to these last few days of beautiful makeup before it’s too cold to care. Once it gets below 20, I have to cover my whole face, so lipstick is basically worthless. However, the coldest days have just begun, and that gives me time to use my most beautiful deep lipsticks for glam looks! One of the most stunning way to enhance your eyes is to do a smoky eye. I’ve toned down the intensity of this look for a daytime eyeshadow that is perfect for any activity! Read on the tutorial. Continue reading

How to Have a Self-Care Day

Hey guys! Today’s post is not about getting glam like usual. Instead I thought I would share the ways I like to relax and take care of myself on a day off. It’s important to slow down every once and a while and consider what you need for yourself, whether that is a break from social media or a pedicure. November was a bit of a rough month for me, and these techniques helped me feel so much better! Read on for my ideal self-care day! Continue reading

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a review (a symptom of having no money for new makeup sob) and I have a fun one for you today! Most of you know that I am a big fan of the cult favorite brand Colourpop. The products are extremely cheap for the quality, and so far I have liked almost all of them! This time I tried an Ultra Satin Lip as well. Read on for my take! Continue reading

Tutorial: Shimmery Rosy Brown Eyes

img_3898

Hey everyone! Today’s tutorial is one of my favorite Fall looks. I think a lot of people don’t want to wear pink or rose undertones in Fall. It’s all about maroon and browns this seasons. Don’t get me wrong, I love those deep colors a lot! But I think pink is fun for any time of the year, and sometimes you just don’t want a super dark smoky look in the Autumn. Personally, I only want to look like a straight-up vampire every once and a while, so today’s look is where I gravitate the most. Read on for the tutorial! Continue reading

The Look: Casual Coffee Date

Hey everyone! This post is for people like me, who might be just a little bit “dating challenged”.

Maybe you just get dressed haha). This look is focused on a very casual date at a coffee shop. Read on for the rest of the look! Continue reading
