Rosy Valentine’s Day Makeup

img_2812img_2815

Hello lovelies; we are only a few days out from Valentine’s Day, or Valentine’s Day weekend, and I wanted to get a romantic makeup look up that also has a sexy edge. You can definitely interchange the lipstick for something nude if a flirty romantic vibe is more your thing, or you could change the brown eyeshadow I used to smoke this out with a black for a more sultry look. Whether you’re spending the day swapping candy hearts with your significant other or hitting the movie theatres to see a certain lust-filled movie (okay, it’s Fifty Shades Darker) with your girlfriends (or you’re doing both, because you should never forget about your girls!) this is the perfect Valentine’s Day Makeup. Read below for all the details.

Holiday Look and Makeup Must Haves

img_1692

Happy holidays everyone! With Christmas and Hanukkah right around the corner, I was thinking about what my foolproof holiday staples are. I’m talking about what red lip will stay on while sipping holiday cocktails or kissing under the mistletoe, and what glitters will sparkle all through the night, because let’s face it no one wants to deal with smeared lipstick and flaky glitter this season. Below are my top picks, as well as what I used to get the makeup look above. So read on, and snag some of these for your holiday get together!

Kissin’ Under the Mistletoe Worthy Red Lipsticks

These are in order from the most foolproof to more satiny versions that may stain a cup a bit but stay on through dinner.

  1. Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick in Bawse $24 (my favorite red; super comfortable to wear, doesn’t bleed and stays on through eating, kissing, etc.)
  2. OFRA Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Atlantic City $19.90
  3. Maybelline Creamy Matte Lip Color in Siren in Scarlet  $7.99
  4. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Rita  $32

A Twinkle with the Tinsel: Best Glitters

These are true glitters, either liners or loose glitters, not a shadow with glitter in it. For any loose glitters a lightly spritz my brush with Fix + and then dip in the glitter.

  1. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy $20 (so easy to apply, can build for more glitter coverage, and does not flake!)
  2. MAC Glitter (any shade) $22 (This is the best glitter for all over the lid, it’s super opaque and wears beautifully throughout the night)
  3. NYX Face and Body Glitter $5.99 (I love these when I first open them, but sadly after a few uses the glitter stops coming out, but if you need for one or two nights the price is right and the quality is great! Just wish it had better packaging)
  4. Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art $8.99 (I only use the glitter liner side of these, and it goes on great. After a few hours it will flake a bit, but once again for the price point it’s a good glitter liner)

Drugstore Makeup Look: L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 Review

FullSizeRender

 

The “nude/naked” eyeshadow trend has been done over and over again, ever since the launch of Urban Decay’s Naked palette which skyrocketed not only Urban Decay into Sephora stardom, as well a slew of  copycat makeup palettes. The Naked 1 became a staple for me,but at $54 it’s a big hit to the wallet. I’ve skipped out on many of the similar palettes over the years, such asMaybelline, LORAC and Smashbox, but after seeing Carli Bybel using L’Oreal’s La Palette Nude 2 I wanted to try theirs (a late night after work drugstore run might have also led to this impulse buy too).  A comparison, review, swatches and drugstore makeup look are below.

L’Oreal released two nude palettes, at $19.99 a piece, I was a bit shocked by the price, as Maybelline’s The Nudes pallete as only $9.99. The L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 comes with a small brush and sponge; I purchased mine at Walgreens.  The one above is #1 and features warmer tones similar to the Naked palette, the #2 palette is cooler and similar to Urban Decay’s Naked 2. I went for #1 as I use my Naked way more than the Naked 2. Below is a comparison between Urban Decay’s and L’Oreal’s take on the natural shadow look.

Comparison

FullSizeRender (2)

This palette features 10 shades, whereas the Naked palette features 10. You get three matte shades (1 cool and 2 warm) and only get two in the original Naked palette. The mirror on the L’Oreal palette is much larger than the Naked mirror, but the Naked brush is much nicer than the L’Oreal option. The L’Oreal features two highlighting shades, the Naked has one. But the Naked palette offers more diverse colors including a purple, pink, slate and black, whereas L’Oreal’s features mostly warm toned browns and golds.

 Review

FullSizeRender (1)

The La Palette Nude 1 is a great affordable option for anyone looking to start out in makeup (high school and college students, I’m looking at you!). I also think this palette is awesome if you don’t want to dig into your more expensive palettes. Even though I’ve owned my Naked palettes for a few years, I hate using them everyday because those suckers are expensive! I think the three matte shadows in this palette really convinced me, as it’s really hard to find good matte eyeshadows at the drugstore. The palette and the 2nd version, features all the colors you could want in a warm or cool toned palette. I personally like that this palette is not complicated with random colors. You could use this for day or evening, so it’s perfect for travelling. I will say the colors are a bit chalky, but I didn’t have fallout and was able to blend. I give it a score or 9/10. I think this will become my new everyday staple, even though I adore my Naked palettes. They wore well with an eyeshadow base for 8-10 hours. P.S. I wish these shadows were named. I think it’s a bit lazy to not name makeup, but maybe that’s the writer in me.

Emma Stone SAG Awards Makeup Look

Photo taken by me
Photo taken by me

Emma Stone is everything I love about young actresses in Hollywood, she’s witty, fashion-forward (I mean did you guys see her tuxedo inspired Dior Couture Gown!?) and she’s not jumping from man to man, flashing her undies every 5 seconds. But also I love that she embraces her whiter than white pale skin, considering we’re in the same boat there. It gave me the inspiration to recreate her SAG Awards look (view here). Between the beautiful red lip (drugstore may I add!) and coppery eye, I knew this is a look I would wear at a real-life event, whether it be a wedding or Valentine’s Day. This look is glam, flirty and chic all rolled into one.

Primer: Smashbox Photoready Primer

Foundation: New Maybelline Fit Me Dewy Foundation in Porcelain

Concealer: NYX Photoready HD Concealer

Eyebrows: Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyebrow Mousse in Medium Brown

Lips: Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Gladiolus  (according to glamour.com’s Lipstick blog this is the exact lipstick Emma wore).

Earrings: Free People (sold out), similar Forever 21 Faux Gem Drop Earring 

New Year, New Looks

Picture taken by me

Hello everybody, I hope everyone had a fabulous, crazy and safe New Year! I, unfortunately was working, but one of my resolutions for next year is to not work NYE, unless I’m planning an awesome PR event! I also want to expand the blog in 2015, which I touched on in my “Getting Real: No Farewell Here” post.  Some personal resolutions for the coming year are to establish my career in public relations or a related field and move out of South Jersey, I also want to make it to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which I believe is happening in May (I’m squealing already!), save for a trip to Europe, attend an outdoor music festival and finally live by my favorite statement, “Create your own happiness”.

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog, it truly means so much to me. I love creating looks and supplying reviews. I’m sorry I could not get a New Year’s Eve look posted before the new year, but I’m leaving all the products I used for my NYE look, along with cheaper alternatives below. This look works for any fancy night out, even Valentine’s Day! Let me know if there are any posts you guys would like to see in 2015, I have lots of ideas already brewing. Anyway on to the makeup….

Forget About Dark Colors; You’ll Want Powder Blue this Fall

In the Pale

The pale color trend has definitely continued from last years runway shows; I mean who could resist the cotton candy colored hues that for surprisingly  stand out as edgy against the sea of blacks and burgundy’s fall clothes usually bring? Last year it was pale pink, courtesy of Celine’s über popular pale pink coat (view here on vogue.com look #6). This trend broke open when Kim Kardashian sported this coat, click here to see. But this year I’m predicting another pale hue is going to be taking names and stealing the money out of your wallet. But don’t worry, this trend is too beautiful to float away, so you won’t be having any puffer jacket regret next season. Below are your pale hue options!

3 Halloween Looks You’ll Want to Wear All October Long

Halloween is my favorite holiday, I get to dress up as whatever fictional character I want and delve into those spunky bright colors I can’t wear on a normal day. Because let’s face it, wearing green lipstick to class may have people looking at you like you’re the new student from Mars. But on Halloween we get to embrace our inner warrior queens, evil villains and beloved princesses. For this years fantastically frightful season I’ve created three looks that cover most of the Halloween makeup spectrum using makeup you probably already own!

Daenerys Targeryn 

Game of Thrones is my favorite show and one of my favorite book series, so when I saw Spirit Halloween was releasing Daenerys costumes I swooned. I went for Dany’s Dothraki look, which can also work if you’re a warrior princess or goddess this Halloween. This look is dewy and stripped down, making it super easy to accomplish. Products used are listed below.

 Poison Ivy

A few years ago this Batman villain rose to the top of Halloween costume lists when Kim Kardashian wore this look. I admit ever since then I’ve been obsessed with creating a Poison Ivy makeup look, and when I found a magically fierce Poison Ivy costume on spirithalloween.com I was ecstatic. This is definitely my favorite of the three looks and I hope this inspires you to bring out your inner bad ass, all while looking spellbinding.

Princess Jasmine

Princess Jasmine wins hands down for having the dreamiest makeup and outfit look out of all the Disney Princesses. I mean this girl doesn’t wear a poofy dress and she has a pet tiger, what’s not to envy? unfortunately, I do not have beautiful caramel skin like this princess, and all the bronzer in the world can’t help that, but I’ve created a bold purple eye look anyone can wear for their look. Costume from Spirit Halloween.
