Renaissance Faire makeup look and hair

Hi everyone! I thought I’d share my hair and makeup look I created a few weeks ago for attending a local¬†Renaissance Faire (RennFaire). It’s always fun to go to this RennFaire because 1 – there are a ton of redheads which I don’t always get to see! and 2 – the booths are fun to peruse and activities are so fun to watch.

Jesse’s Girl Fire Fly + Glee nail polishes swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonSo‚Ķyou might have noticed that this published this morning and nothing was written! That’s because I was exhausted last night and forgot to check that this was ready to go before I turned off my computer. :/ Yesterday afternoon, I mowed most of my front yard, which took an hour and a half, and I was just beat to all get-out. Anyway, for realsies this time, let’s check out Jesse’s Girl Fire Fly and Glee.

Fire Fly is a golden flake polish that in some lights has a greenish tinge. This is meant to be a topper as it is quite sheer. It has a good consistency and dries satin. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Glee is a sea-green nail polish with golden shimmer. It is more green in real life. This is sheer and applies unevenly. It might stain as well! This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Okay, now that you’ve seen these for yourself, what are your thoughts? I picked these up awhile back from Jesse’s Girl on clearance, and it looks like there are still quite a few polishes on sale for $2!

Makeup look with Glamour Doll Eyes, Jesse’s Girl, Jordana Sweet Cream Matte

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! Lately I’ve noticed that reviewing makeup notwithstanding, I’ve fallen into a rut with my makeup looks – I tend to play it safe with neutrals & browns or neutrals & purples. I mean, yeah, play to your strengths but I need to stretch myself a bit.
