makeup for redheads with Nyx Cosmetics Ulta Cosmetics Happy Birthday eyeshadow palette | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Afternoon everyone! Just a quick and simple makeup look today. I was up at 4:30 (thanks baby) so I could take a shower and get ready for the day before hubby had to go to work. He doesn’t usually work Sundays but he had to today. Yuk! I’m currently waiting on pins and needles for him to get home.

Makeup with Urban Decay Hatter and C-Note, Too Faced Melted Nude

Good morning, wonderful lovely readers! As I mentioned last week, I’ve been finding myself in a neutral rut when it comes to eyeshadow looks.

For today’s look using Urban Decay Hatter and C-Note (from the Alice Through the Looking Glass and Vice 4 eyeshadow palettes, respectively), I’m venturing even farther away from neutral territory.

What’s In My Travel Bag: Makeup Edition

Press Sample buttonGood morning! This week, I’m talking about “What’s In My Travel Bag” since I’ll be traveling soon. Today I’m sharing with you what I consider to be my makeup essentials for traveling.

What's In My Makeup Travel Bag | Be Happy And Buy Polish

My requirements for what goes in my makeup bag: 1) it has to be something I will actually use, 2) no repeats (double blush, double bronzer, etc),  3) it has to be a necessity, and 4) I can’t go buy something new just for the trip.

e.l.f. Jasmine “A Whole New World” Beauty Book

Purchased by Me buttonGood afternoon! I hope you are ready for the weekend, baby, because it’s almost here. 😀 My family is meeting another family for dinner tonight, and I’m really excited. Actual adult conversations will take place! For tonight, I’ve created a simple look with the e.l.f. Jasmine “A Whole New World” Beauty Book that is available now in drugstores (I bought mine at Walgreens).

I’m beginning to have quite a few of these palettes that e.l.f. is putting out. I have the Good & Evil palette, Snow White, and Ariel palettes as well. (Let me know if you’d like to see those as well, even though they aren’t available still in stores.)

e.l.f. Jasmine Beauty Book eyeshadows | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This one comes with 7 eyeshadows, an applicator, eyeliner pencil, a blush, a contour, a brush, and a lip gloss.

I gotta tell you, I don’t care for the applicator, eyeliner, brush, or lip gloss. I don’t have good luck with e.l.f.’s eyeliners and I hate lip glosses (almost across the board). It should go without saying not to use rinky-dink applicators or brushes that come in these palettes.

From top to bottom: Genie, Aladdin, Jafar. I must say that my camera muted the tones of these three – they are much brighter in person.

Top is Royal Palace, bottom is Forbidden Treasure. Royal Palace has little gold specks in it that I quite like.

For my look, I went with Abu on the brow bone, Rajah on the lid, and Lago in the crease.

I used Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Stag, and Urban Decay Perversion mascara.

My overall look – I decided to use the lip gloss to show you what it is like. It just barely tints my lips. Though I didn’t care for the lip gloss or the eyeliner, all in all, this is really a palette I enjoy. If you missed my post earlier today with the e.l.f. Jasmine nail polishes, be sure to check it out. I’d like to know what you think of today’s look!

Tomorrow morning, I’m taking my kids to listen to a live performance of Peter & the Wolf – definitely excited for that. Any fun plans for yourself this weekend?

e.l.f. Jasmine Nail Polish swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonIt’s Friday, yahoooooo! Seriously, I was able to get to sleep at a decent time last night, and I woke up actually feeling refreshed instead of draggy and blergh. Will wonders never cease?

Today I have the e.l.f. Jasmine nail polish set that I found locally at one of my Walgreens for $9.95 (or was it $7.95?). (I also picked up two different eyeshadow sets that I’ll show you later.) This is a nice basic set with 2 creme nail polishes, 1 jelly nail polish, 1 shimmer nail polish, and 1 glitter.

e.l.f. nude | Be Happy And Buy Polish

e.l.f. nude is up first, and yup, it’s a nude creme nail polish. Not much to say about this! This is 2 coats, no top coat.

e.l.f. gina girl over nude | Be Happy And Buy Polish

e.l.f. gina girl is the glitter polish for this set, and I’m showing it over each polish. At first, it was really easy to just dab on. But as I kept using it, it kept getting thicker and harder to use. :/

e.l.f. smokin hot | Be Happy And Buy Polish

e.l.f. smokin hot is next, and it is a really nice lovely red jelly polish. This is probably my favorite of the group, though the formula was a bit thin. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

e.l.f. mint cream | Be Happy And Buy Polish

e.l.f. mint cream is really just that, a nice minty green creme nail polish. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

e.l.f. purple dream | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Last is e.l.f. purple dream, a purple shimmer nail polish, also a bit thin. This is 2 coats. The glitter basically disappeared over this polish, so you don’t get to see that! 😛

Well, as I said, this is a nice basic set: nothing ground-breaking here. Since the bottles are smaller and the brushes are short, this would be a good gift for an older child or tween.

When’s the last time you had a really refreshing night of sleep? I’m afraid it doesn’t happen often enough for me, hence why last night was such a treat. Have a great Friday, and I’ll see you later!
