Hey guys! Sorry that I haven’t been posting lately but life has kept me soo busy! We’re considering moving so I’ve been on this mad dash trying to find a good apartment in time and I haven’t had much time to dedicate to my blog recently but I’ve got big plans for the future and all of this craziness should be over very soon! 😉
I know that not all of you follow me on Instagram so I figured I’d make a quick post showing you some of my recent looks as well as the details for them.
For the natural part of this eyeshadow look, I used Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie, Beaches and Cream, Taupe Notch, Purely Naked and Sweet Dreams & the green is from my Coastal Scents 252 Palette. This white liner is Stila’s Stay All Day in Snow. It looks super cool but I wouldn’t really recommend it. It’s hard to get opaque. I really need to break and order a good white liner! I’m also wearing Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense in #50 on my lips.
This eyeshadow look was done with the Sephora Facets of Marsala Palette which I ADORE! The color choices in this palette are just blowing my mind since I’m a total sucker for reds and warm shades in general. Overall, I really love the Facets of Marsala Palette but certain shades have some serious fallout issues so you’ll probably want to do your eyes first with this! It appears to be sold out online but your local store might still have a few around! 😉
I’m wearing NYX Cosmetics Euro Trash on my lips and House of Lashes Temptress Wispy lashes.
A girly-vampy look? 😛 For the eyes I used lots of random shadows including shades from the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette, the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette and the Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette paired with Siren from House of Lashes. Lips are Diva from MAC.
I did this neutral eyeshadow look for my 2 year anniversary with my wonderful husband using the LORAC PRO Palette 2, Makeup Geek’s Cocoa Bear and House of Lashes Temptress Wispy lashes. I paired it with MAC’s Ruby Woo in the picture but later changed it to NYX’s Alabama because I wanted a darker red.
My “Oh shit, no time to mess with eyeshadow!” look. I created this ombre berry lip using NYX’s Sweet Pink lipstick paired with MAC’s liner in Nightmoth. For my wings, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in Jet which is the eyeliner I find myself reaching for most often lately as it is black, black, black!
And I’m going to finish up this post with one of my favorite looks that I’ve done lately which was inspired by the amazing @catysuewho on Instagram.
To create this dark lip, I filled in my entire lips with MAC’s liner in Nightmoth and applied MAC’s Rebel lipstick on top of that.
The eyes were done using the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette, the LORAC Mega PRO Palette & Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack. I topped it off with Hello Sunshine Glitter from Lit Cosmetics, House of Lashes Siren and Inglot’s AMC Gel Liner in 79 on my waterline.
P.S. My brows in all of these pics were done with the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ash!

So yeah, that’s pretty much my life in a nutshell lately! A giveaway, a few makeup looks and a maddening search for an apartment which I’m about to just abandon! lol Moving always sounds like a good idea in the beginning but it doesn’t take long for the stress of the situation to kick in. How is 2015 treating you guys and gals so far?
