Mani Monday: Pastel Cheetah — June 11, 2018

Mani Monday: Pastel Cheetah


Happy Mani Monday! I’ve brought you a more colorful look this week. Here’s how I did it.

The main color on all nails but the ring finger is two coats of OPI Nail Lacquer in Suzi Without a Paddle.

The main color on the cheetah nail is two coats of Essie Nail Polish in Backseat Besties.

Using a dotting tool, I created the center of the cheetah spots with OPI Nail Lacquer in Suzi Without a Paddle.

Using the smaller end of the dotting tool, I created the details and lines of the cheetah pattern using OPI Nail Lacquer in You’re Such a Budapest.

I topped it all off with a coat of OPI Start to Finish Base Coat, Top Coat and Strengthener.

See you all soon!

Thursday Thoughts: ColourPop Golden State of Mind Shadow Palette


Hey! This week I’m sharing the ColourPop Golden State of Mind Shadow Palette with you.

If I have one complaint about this Palette, it’s that there’s no mattes. You guys know I love my shimmer and glitters, but you’d have to have something else to create a complete look.

Skincare Sunday: NO:HJ Aloe Mud Mask — June 3, 2018

Skincare Sunday: NO:HJ Aloe Mud Mask


Hey guys! So this was one of those impulse buys. You know, where you buy something just because it’s pretty? I’m not at all familiar with this brand, but really wanted to see this on.

And guess what! It totally paid off! Look how stinking cute it is!

I totally love this gold lace sheet mask. I’m not sure what the mud aspect was for, but the aloe did leave my skin hydrated. I will definitely be grabbing more, if only for the Snapchat photos!

See you all soon!

Skincare Sunday: Brown Lab Blackheads All Clear Kit — May 27, 2018

Skincare Sunday: Brown Lab Blackheads All Clear Kit


So on this skincare Sunday we are going to be talking about Brown Lab Blackheads All Clear Kit.

So first you have the Blackheads-softening Duvet Nose Pack. Basically, it’s like a sheet mask for your nose that softens stubborn blackheads.

And just look how cute you’ll look wearing it!

Then you’ll have the Pore-clearing Cacao Peel-off Strip. This is your more traditional nose stop. The ones you’re probably more used to.

And still looking cute!

Then there’s these things. Basically you use the side with the hole to remove blackheads.

And the side with the cotton swab to clear in off.

Then you take this little mitt and wet it and scrub away.

Lastly, you have this Pore-soothing Biocellulose Mask.

Overall, this was decent. I still have other things I prefer, it this is definitely better than just plain old nose strips.

See you soon!

Face of the Day Friday — May 18, 2018

Face of the Day Friday


Hey guys! I created this look for you, and I’ve got to say I really like how the blue looks against my brown eyes. I also love that it doesn’t clash too much with my ridiculous hair!

The Prep

As usual, I woke my eyes up with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also hydrated my lips with some Pure Paw Paw Ointment in Grape.

To keep my lashes going, I did my usual Grande Lash-MD Lash Enhancing Serum, followed by coating my lashes with some Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Vitamin E Oil.

The Face

I used some Tony Moly Egg Pore Yolk Primer, and decided to skip foundation today, since my skin wasn’t looking too bad.

I did decide to cream contour, using LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Toast, and blending it out with a dampened Beauty Blender.

To conceal under my eyes, I dabbed on some Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Lemonade and Vanilla Latte. I grabbed my dampened Beauty Blender and blended like forever.

To sculpt my face a bit more, I used my NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo in Taupe/Ivory. Then, (again, I know!) I used my Beauty Blender.

To contour my nose, I went a different route. I used NYX Professional Makeup Micro-Contour Duo Pencil in Light. This I just used my finger to blend.

To set everything, I used a Japonesque Go To Brush to swirl on some RCMA No Color Powder.

To go back over the contour, I used a Japonesque Kumadori Blending Brush and a Morphe G18 Brush to sweep on some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines.

To fake a blush, I grabbed my Sigma F15 Brush to add some Frankie Rose Blush in Peach Pink to my cheeks. I blended that out with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.

For a nice glow, I used a Morphe M501 Brush to add some Too Faced Mystical Highlighter in Unicorn Tears to my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose.

The Eyes

To fill in and shape my brows, I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gels in 16 and 20. To clean up the edges, I used a tiny tiny amount or Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige and a Morphe M508 Brush. To set that hard work, I ran some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer across them and brush through that with a Morphe M115 Brush.

Now for the fun part. I created a transition shade using a Morphe M505 Brush and some NYX Professional Makeup Nude Matte Shadow in Leather and Lace. I then deepened up the crease a tad with a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush and some NYX Professional Makeup Nude Matte Shadow in Get Naked.

To create a bright base for the next part, I used a Younique Cream Shadow Brush to apply some NYX Professional Makeup Cream Shadow Base in White. I blended out the very edges of that with a Morphe R39 Brush.

Very carefully, I used a Morphe E14 Brush to pack some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Egotastic onto that area, but only in the inner and outer corners. I also ran a tiny amount along my lower lash line. I once again blended the edges with a Morphe E41 Brush.

For the brightness in the center, I used a Morphe E19 Brush to cautiously add some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Vegas Baby.

The Final Touches

I sealed all that hard work in with some Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray.

For my lip color, I used NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie in French Maid.

I competed the look with a couple coats of Grande Mascara Lash Boosting Formula.

And that’s all for today! I’ll see you all soon!
