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.

Face of the Day with Glamour Doll Eyes and LipSense

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon everyone! I hope you are having a good Sunday. I thought I’d share with you my makeup of the day with Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadows and LipSense Apple Cider. I am having a great Sunday because I went to try on pants that I haven’t worn since before the baby was a twinkle in my eye. Last time I wore them, they fit very snugly (like, cut off my breath when I sat down); this time I needed a belt to cinch them so they’d stay up. Yay for non-scale victories! 😀

Makeup of the Day with Tarte Rainforest After Dark and Nyx Intense Butter Gloss Berry Strudel

This is my makeup of the day with Tarte Rainforest After Dark eyeshadow palette and NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in Berry Strudel.

Sinful Colors Stoned Crystal Shimmer Just Deserts, Femme Fatale Cosmetics Hourglass | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I wanted something delicate since my outfit was kind of loud. LOL. I started with 3 coats of Sinful Colors Just Deserts from the Stoned Crystal Shimmer collection. It is slightly more pink in real life. (I’m really hoping to get swatches done of this collection this week, btw.) Then I added an iridescent glitter stud to the nails with Just Deserts on them.  Continue reading

Easter FOTD with Urban Decay Vice Palette eyeshadows Fast-Ball, 1985, Underhand

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! I thought I’d show you my makeup look from Easter Sunday. I hope you don’t mind that I’m branching out more into makeup & beauty looks. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed doing and now that I think my skills are improving, I like to show what I’ve been creating. As a pale redhead, I’ve always been scared to try out looks that are more colorful, but I’m trying to be bold!

EOTD Urban Decay Fast-Ball, 1985, Underhand | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with a sticky base with NYX Cosmetics eyeshadow stick in Milk. Then I used Urban Decay Fast-Ball on the inner lid and 1985 on the outer lid.

In the crease and outer corner, I used Urban Decay Underhand. One of the last steps was to use UD Discreet on the brow bone and an unnamed white from BH Cosmetics in the inner corner.

I used L’Oreal Infallible eyeliner for my tight line/waterline, and Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Thick/Thin eyeliner as my regular liner. Mascara used was UD Perversion.

I’d love to know what you think of my bolder look! 🙂
