Cute AF Collaboration

My fellow blogger and twitter friend, Kyles, reached out to me to do a collaboration. Now saying that we don’t live in the same city or state for that matter we had to get a little creative. So we chose a palette we both have and created looks. The palette we used was the Colourpop cute AF palette which is a super warm palette. Don’t forget to go check out and follow Kyles to see what she created!! you can find her : BLOG and TwitterIMG_3406 For this look I created I wanted something a little more simple than some of the looks I create because I had a ton of errands to run and had to take the baby to his checkup.

Out of the palette I layered and smoked colors over the lid starting with the lightest colors in the palette then gradually adding in darker colors but focusing them more on the outer corner. I used every matte shade except the yellow. Then to add a touch of shimmer and blend everything together I added the gold/orange shimmer in the bottom row.

I really love this palette but wish it had more dark tones in it. I find it almost a little difficult to create a whole look with the palette, It can be done but just not to what I love personally.

till next time!! Everyone who celebrates have a great Thanks Giving!!!!

Colourpop Review

Lately I have been getting so much new makeup! I love it and I’m not sure where to even start so I will begin with all the colourpop newness that I have. First off I got the “I Think I Love You” palette.                                                Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 7.51.55 AM As you can see this palette is so stunning! It is perfect for creating everyday looks and includes some seriously stunning and pigmented shades. I absolutely live for a deep matte black and a shiny gold. There are great mattes in the palette for a perfect base and all the metallics add the perfect punch to any look! And only 16$ colourpop is a non brainer for the girl on a budget.

Next up I tried out their new brow pencils. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.05.30 AMIt is much like the original ABH auto pencil. Very thin tip with a nice spoolie on the other side. It is very creamy and the product is smooth. I don’t think it will replace my ABH dipbrow any time soon but this is a nice pencil to have!

Lastly my mom gave me this lippie. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.15.41 AM This is an ultra satin lip in the shade “First of All”. It is a rich raspberry shade and I love it! My mom typically only wears nudes so I get really excited when she gets bright colors because I know they will be mine! And this color is awesome, right up my ally.

Alright friends if you haven’t colourpop yet what are you waiting for?? The prices are so affordable and the products are seriously fantastic! A+ from me!!

YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stain Review

Hello Friends! I can not believe I forgot to post yesterday!!!! OMG, I was doing so good. Oh well no use crying over spilled milk. Any ways I mentioned before that I won a contest on twitter and I received two YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stains. I wanted to share my thoughts on them!

My swatches aren’t amazing but the left is shade 403- Rose Happening and the right is 402- Rouge Remix. I am utterly obsessed with these lip vinyls. They are incredibly creamy and smooth, leaving your lips feeling super soft. They also stain the lip leaving a lasting color all day. They layer over other lip colors very well also. So if you aren’t a huge fan of how liquid matte lipsticks can leave your lips feeling, these will soften them up!

Overall I would definitely say these are amazing and definitely approved. The only set back is that they are 36$ each… Super steep for a lip color but the formula is awesome. Something I would have never purchased myself if I didn’t win it. But now I want them all!!

Friday the 13Th

Day 13 of Blogtober and it’s friday the 13th! Being the halloween freak that I am, I’m going to have a quick, short post for yall.

This is my necromorph I created. Don’t ask me what a necromorph is because it is a mystery. It is just a weird creature. I used liquid latex paste and aluminum foil to create the jaw piece and used ellimorph plastic to create the teeth and just painted everything including my face. I also added lots of hair serum to my hair to make it greasy and gross.

I’ve been trying to go out of my box and work on different looks. I don’t love how this turned out but still thought it was cool.
