Tutorial: Daytime Smoky Eye

IMG_4017.jpg

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

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!

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

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

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a nerdy makeup tutorial (or any post for that matter. Moving is crazy!). I really enjoyed the look I did for Zelda back in February, and I was again inspired by a bamf video game character. If you’re a fan of the Bayonetta series I hope you enjoy this look inspired by the hair-weilding witch in her sequel game! Continue reading
