Purple EOTD

Hi Dolls!
I hope you’re all having a great weekend. I had a fantastic night in with my girls on Friday (nachos, margaritas, and a Friends marathon) and spent yesterday at home, being lazy. I have some really exciting news to share, but I’ll have to wait until after tomorrow night to tell you guys. Seriously, so excited :). And no, I’m not engaged/expecting lol; this is beauty related.

One of my friends has asked me to do a wedding makeup trial and if she likes it, I’ll be doing her makeup in December. Her favorite color is purple, so I’ve been playing around with different shades of it to get inspired. Here’s a look I put together yesterday:

Products Used:
-UDPP original all over the lid and long lower lashes.
-MAC Nocturnelle e/s all over the lid, just past the crease. Also blended along outer 3/4 of the lower lashes.
-Urban Decay e/s in Flash in the crease, to soften the edge of Nocturnelle. Also blended into the inner 1/4 of the lower lashes.
-Urban Decay e/s in Sin along the edge of Flash.
-Urban Decay e/s in Virgin blended along browbone and inner corner of eyes.
-MAC Sketch e/s blended into the outer v ov the upper lid and a little into the crease.
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner along upper lashes and the pencil on waterlines.
-Neutrogena Healthy Volume mascara.

What are you up to this weekend?


All Brown Smokey Eyes + A Mini Haul

PhotobucketWhat my bed looks like when I’m getting ready :).

Hi Lovelies,
Happy Tuesday! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I love my black pencil and liquid eyeliner, I wear at least the liquid every day. I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone and decided to do a smokey eye without any black shadow/liner this weekend. Part of the inspiration came from Drop Dead Diva; Jane always has lovely smokey brown eyes that warm up her fair complexion. I played around with some MAC shadows and Ulta liner to create this:

Products Used:
-UDPP all over the eyelid and along lower lashes.
-MAC Wedge e/s applied all over the lid, halfway to the brow past the crease.
-MAC Corduroy e/s blended into the crease.
-MAC Embark e/s blended into the crease and outer corner of the lid. Also applied along lower lashes and blended with a fluffy brush.
-MAC Mylar e/s blended into the inner corners of the eyes and along brows.
-Ulta Extreme Wear Gel Eyeliner in Perfection applied along upper lashes and winged out.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.

My birthday’s on the 10th, but I picked up some goodies with bday coupons my favorite stores sent last week. Check it out:
-Victorias Secret Rockin’ Body Luminous Perfecting Cream. Price was $12, I paid $2 with my bday coupon.
-Philosophy Happy Birthday Beautiful body wash/bubble bath/shampoo. It smells like cake :D. This was free.
-Torrid earrings. Price was $10.50, I paid $.50 with my bday coupon.
-OPI InStyle Red. This was free with my subscription that I got myself for my bday.
-MAC Ample Pink Plushglass. This wasn’t for my bday, but it was new so I included it in the haul :P. MAC sells it for $18.50, I paid $13 for it on Ebay.

What have you picked up recently?


Pink & Purple EOTD + New Bag

Happy Monday Lovelies!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend. I’m typing this from my family’s home computer, which is one of the slowest machines on the face of the earth, but I couldn’t stay away from blogging :). It’ll be at least a week before I get another charger for my laptop. Here’s a pink and purple EOTD from last week. Pink is kind of intimidating to me, so I have to use it in small doses. I included a rough outline of where I place the colors (hope it helps, Rayleen!).

Products Used (all shadows are from MAC):
-UDPP original all over lid and along lower lashes.
-Sunset B. in the inner corner of the eyelid.
-Hepcat blended into the edge of Sunset B., moving towards outer corner of eyelid.
-Nocturnelle blended into the outer corner of the lid. Also blended along lower lashes.
-Naked Lunch blended above the crease along the edge of all the pink/purples.
-Dazzelight blended along brow as highlight.
-Revlon Colorstay liquid and pencil liners in blackest black.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.

How do you wear pink eyeshadow?

One more thing. For those of you that don’t follow me on Twitter, I bought my first Coach bag :). I had seen the purse at the Coach store for about $498 a few months ago and just couldn’t rationalize spending that much on a bag right now; that’s saying a lot, because I can talk anyone and myself into buying just about anything lol. Well, I was at the Ontario Mills mall and by chance, walked into the Coach factory store and spotted the bag for $219. This sales lady comes up to me and hands me a 30% off coupon to use on any purchase. I had to drag myself out of the store, pouting like a little kid. I slept on it, consulted my bff (all the way in Italy lol), and decided to pick up the bag the next day after work. At the end of it, I paid $165 and don’t regret it one bit! I had to give up shopping for any other clothes/shoes in July , but I’m so happy that I don’t care. This is the large leather Ashley Satchel; it’s timeless, chic, and goes with everything.  LOVE!

I hope you all have a great week :).


Blue Flame

Hello Beauties!
Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week :). How did all of you spend the long weekend? I went out for drinks with one of my besties (hi Liz!), spent time with my sisters, and spent allllll day at the beach on Monday. Although I used an entire tube of sunscreen on myself throughout the day, I’m still burned. Seriously hoping that the red patches calm down soon. Check out my view on the beach, it was already packed at 7 am!


On a sad and happy note, I miss my bff, Shannon, so very much. She’s in Italy this entire month (I know, SO JEALOUS), and I’m bummed that I don’t get to meet her for drinks after work or email/text with her regularly. Putting the sadness aside, I’m really happy that she was able to take the opportunity and can’t wait to see every picture and hear every story. Kiss a few Italian boys, Shan! She’ll be posting pics from her trip, on her blog if you all want to take a peek :).

Here’s a blue EOTD that I put together this past weekend:

Purple Wings

Happy Sunday!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend :). I’m over at the boyfriends house, counting down to the premier of the new season of True Blood! I felt like playing with color today, so I did my usual winged liner in purple, instead of black. Loved the way it turned out!


Products Used:
-E.l.f. cream liner. Click here for my review.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.
-E.l.f. angled liner brush. I highly recommend this brush to any gel/cream liner newbies, it makes application so much easier than a foam tipped applicator or a normal liner brush.

Okay, it’s True Blood time! I’ve been waiting since last summer, can’t miss it :D.


Subtle Definition EOTD

Happy Friday Babes 🙂
We made it! So excited for this weekend, I’ll be going to Laughlin on a party bus with the bf’s cousins on Saturday…it should be interesting lol. What do you all have planned this weekend?

I went out with Shannon last weekend and had a lot of different colors on so I decided on a neutral eye with a little bit of definition that wouldn’t compete with my clothes. I keep reaching for the Naked palette because it goes with everything, but I promise to start reaching for my brights again. Are there any eyeshadow colors you’d like to see me create an EOTD with?

Products used (from UD Naked Palette):
-UDPP all over eyelid.
-Naked eyeshadow all over lid, halfway past the crease.
-Buck eyeshadow blended into outer corner v.
-Virgin eyeshadow blended along brow and inner corners.
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner along upper lashes.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Getting Liz Dolled Up!

Hi Beauties,
I hope you’re all having an amazing long weekend! I’ve been spending a lot of time with my girlfriends, sleeping in, and catching up on some favorite shows.
One of my closest friends, Liz, asked me to do her makeup for a wedding yesterday. I always have so much fun doing other people’s makeup, and it felt so nice to get a text from her at the end of the night saying, “I don’t want to wash it off!!” :).




The final look:
I hope you had an amazing time at the wedding Liz, I had so much fun doing your makeup :). Love you!

Have a beautiful day everyone :D.

Gettin’ Naked…With Urban Decay

Hello Beauties,
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week. I’m FINALLY done with school for the summer 😀 and looking forward to having nights off for walks, concerts in the park, and lots of adventures with my friends.
On to the good stuff! I cannot tell you how much I love the Naked Palette from Urban Decay. The colors are all perfect neutrals that are great for work, and easily vamped up for a night out. Seriously, the $50 I paid were so worth it, and I will be getting a backup soon. If you don’t own it already, I highly recommend picking one up if you’re a serious makeup junkie. Here’s a look I put together for a night out with the boyfriend:
