Recent Face of the Days 1/24/2015

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! ūüėČ

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! ūüėČ

I’m wearing NYX Cosmetics Euro Trash on my lips and House of Lashes Temptress Wispy lashes.

NYX Eyeshadow Base Review

Hey guys! I was rambling on about my love for my NYX Eyeshadow Base in White in a post a few days ago and that’s when it occurred to me that I love this product soo much that it totally deserves its own post and review.

NYX Eyeshadow Base review


Packaging: Comes in a small round container with a twist on lid. It’s a little bit of a bother to get your fingers in there, especially if you have long nails, but you can always use some sort of tool to scrape a little up.¬†7/10

Longevity: I pair this with a primer but when I use it my eyeshadows usually stay vibrant and crease free all day long. 9/10

Application: Easily spreadable when dabbing with finger. 9/10

Texture: Slightly thick and tacky consistency is great for holding and intensifying eyeshadows. 9/10

This product comes in three colors, Skin Tone, White and White Pearl. Skin Tone is best suited for use with neutral eyeshadows, White will created added vibrancy to all shadows and White Pearl will created added vibrancy while also adding a pearl/shimmer effect. White is my favorite!

Recent makeup looks!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to make a little post showing some of my recent makeup looks to maybe throw a little inspiration your way or showcase some products that you maybe didn’t know you needed yet! ūüėČ If you want to see my day to day looks more often, be sure to follow me on Instagram @SultrySuburbia.

Workin’ on my cut crease game lately! Seriously, I’ve had way more failed cut crease attempts than I’ve cared to admit but I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of them. For this look I used my Urban Decay Electric Palette, a few Makeup Geek Shadows and the Anastasia Waterproof Creme Color for my eyeliner. Lips are MAC Myth. Brows are Anastasia Dipbrow, as usual.

Too Faced Friends and Family Sale!

Hey guys! It’s that time of the year again and the Too Faced Friends and Family Sale is in full swing! First Sephora, then Too Faced. How much more temptation can I resist? ūüėõ

Too Faced is offering 20% sitewide (sale items excluded) until 11/14/14 at 11:59 PST. Just use code “TAKE20” at checkout to get the sale price.

So what to buy if you’re new to Too Faced? Too Faced has a lot of great products but I have some personal favorites!

The Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick¬†is truly an awesome product. They’re comfortable to wear but most importantly, they aren’t playing around when they say “long wear”. This stuff goes and goes, lasting through eating, drinking and nearly anything else you can throw its way. It surprises me every time I wear it when I go to touch up my lipstick and realize it’s still looking fabulous. You can check out a review of this product by me in Melted Ruby here.

Pink & Gold Glitter Look!

Hey there! I just wanted to take a minute to share my pink and gold glitter look from the other day and tell you how I accomplished it.


For the eye shadow, I started with¬†Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie as a transition shade. Next I grabbed my Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette and applied Totally Fetch (hot pink) to the inner and outer corners of my eye and connected them through my crease. I then took Urban (medium vibrant purple) from the Urban Decay Electric Palette and used it to deepen the inner and outer corners of my lids, also connecting it through my crease. I left the center of my lids blank up until this point where I went back to the Pretty Rebel Palette and applied Instigator (bright¬†gold) to the center of my lids. Time for the glitter! I brushed Urban Decay’s Bondage Makeup Adhesive over the gold eye shadow and pressed my glitter into the glue using a dense brush. I decided to opt out of eyeliner this day and just went straight to my favorite lashes, Siren from House of Lashes.

What I’m Packing for Vacation

As some of you may already know, I’m leaving for vacation to Austria tomorrow¬†and I’ll be away for about two weeks! This is kind of a big deal for me. I’ve never been out of the country before and¬†I’ll be meeting my in-laws and the rest of my husbands family for the FIRST TIME!

With that being said, replies to comments, emails, etc. will be slow for a while but I’ll try to get back to everyone as soon as I can. I also have ¬†a couple of posts, including one tutorial, set to publish while I’m away so keep your eyes peeled! O_O

So on to what I’m packing! These are some of my¬†favorite products, “necessities”, and some things that are just really versatile/useful. I¬†obviously could have packed much lighter but we’ve got room in the luggage and I like variety.

I’m not ashamed to admit that lip products are my weakness. I often have half a dozen lipsticks just hanging out in my purse so it was kind of hard for me to narrow it down to this many (I added NYX Sweet Pink afterwards! Oops.) but I think I’ve got my bases covered. NYX Matte Lipsticks in Butter & Forbidden, NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel & Tiramisu, NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red & Plum, Maybelline Color Elixir in Signature Scarlet, MAC lipsticks in Ruby Woo, Diva & Please Me¬†and finally Too Faced’s Lip Insurance for a little extra help on long days.
