Forest Green Smokey Eye

Dat Green Green 

Green Smokey Eye using a MAC pigment and lots of warm toned browns!

Hi my lovely friends... and family that I force to support me :) This is a tutorial of one of my favorite looks - a smokey eye using a color other than black. Green is going to make every single eye color stand out - especially green or hazel eyes. Feel free to use this technique with any color on the lid.

This is a super simple way of doing a smokey eye- just building up darker colors on top of lighter colors -  and I genuinely believe everyone can do this.

Hope you enjoy :) Feel free to leave suggestions for what looks you want next!
Love You

Holiday Palette Review - Kat Von D Star Studded

This holiday season, I decided to treat myself (like I do even when it isn't the holiday season). I had been eyeing the two Kat Von D palettes at Sephora for forever, but I could never decide which to pick and  made it a much bigger deal than it should have been. When this limited edition holiday palette came out, I made up my mind to get it, and I am so glad I did.

This is just a little review, some swatches, and my thoughts on the shadows. Overall I give it an A. (Not an A+ because there is one I don't like..  but that is okay.)

It retails for $55.00, which isn't that bad considering you get 24 eyeshadows.

This is a limited palette.,. so go check it out at Sephora! Play around with the colors. You won't be disappointed. My favorite part was all of the matte shades. They are so DANG pigmented I didn't know what to do except buy it.

Here it is on ... 

Hope you guys like it :) Happy Holidays <3

Makeup Forever Flash Palette - For Your Entire Face



I don't know how many of you have heard of the Makeup Forever Flash Palette... (FOUND HERE), but it is truly worth a look if you are at all interested in art and creativity.

Just looking at the bright colors, it is apparent that this can be used to do some crazy, brilliant looks. But I wanted to show that you can really do ANY type of look with this palette. I filmed myself doing my entire face of makeup - foundation, concealer, contour, blush, eyes, and lips - with just this palette, some mascara, and a little setting powder.

Obviously, this is an investment, and I wouldn't review something that I didn't think was super interesting. If you are on a budget, maybe skip out on this purchase - it is not necessary. But if you have an extra 100 bucks to spend, you are creative, or you want to start building a makeup kit, this is an awesome palette.

Victorias Secret Angel

Who doesn't want to look like this?

Victoria's Secret Angels always look flawless... and the makeup is kept simple and fresh. This is an everyday beautiful sort of look, one that may require more makeup than it actually looks like!
It is really easy - I would say beginner level - and looks good on everybody. 

So maybe you can't get that perfect body, the abs and sun kissed skin, but you can get the face! So eat a doughnut with me, feel good in your skin, and come along!

Newest Obsessons


Disclaimer: I know that the word obsession is tossed about and overused... and this is just another example of that. Sorry, I'm a 20 year old girl with language issues. 

I have compiled a list of products that I have recently been either using everyday, fell in love with again, or am just strangely obsessed with. There is a big mix of skin care and makeup, as well as one little perfume purchase that I am stoked about. 

Here's the video! It's kind of long, but that's because I have this compelling desire to explain why I love each thing. Sorry if that's too extravagant - just fast forward :)

I hope you find some things that you are interested in trying! Also, don't forget that if something can be found in Sephora or MAC, go get a sample before you commit to a purchase. Makes life a lot easier.
