Hey Crazies!

Today’s look is fun and colorful, but I also added neutrals to make it more wearable. I’ve been posting about 1-2 times a week, and I’m going to try to post almost everyday from now on! What do you think? New makeup looks almost everyday?! By the way, I made my VERY FIRST MAKEUP TUTORIAL VIDEO on youtube!!! (so make sure to click the link and support me by watching it)! 🙂

Now onto the look!

LOTD: Sparkle Cat-Eye+Red Lips

Hey Crazies!

Today’s look is classic, but with a modern, glam, glittery twist! It’s kind of more of a Holiday look, but I wanted to do this anyway 😀 Hope you like this gorgeous, sexy, glam look!

BIRTHDAY HAUL+BEAUTYCON LA 2015 (Video)!!

Hey Crazies!

Today’s post is SUPER exciting! I just turned 15 on the 10th of July!!! And for my birthday, I went to BeautyCon LA yesterday. It was THE. BEST. DAY. EVER!!!!

MAKE SURE TO WATCH THE VLOG I MADE WHILE I WAS THERE: CLICK HERE!!!! (I was there with my friend Collins Key (a magician who was on America’s Got Talent) so I got to go backstage and meet Bethany Mota, Zendaya, Kandee Johnson, and SO much more, so make sure to check out the link up there, because this video is completely exclusive!!!

So here is what I got for my birthday:

So to start this Birthday Haul off, I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette, which I’ve been dying to get ever since it came out!

Review:

I expected this palette to be pretty good, and it is AWESOME. What I really love is the color range, their such uniquie shades. They’re pigmented, smooth, and wear really nicely on the lids. I’m also in love with the colorful packaging of the palette! (Look coming soon)!

Price: $30

IMG_5656

Since I’m a member of Sephora, I get a free gift from them for my Birthday. And I got these two NARS Lip Pencils.

IMG_5756

This shade is called Rikugien and it’s a satin finish.

IMG_5758

The other one is called Cruella, and it’s a matte finish.

Coming from a trust-worthy brand like NARS, these pencils are awesome. They go on smooth, last long, and these two colors can be worn with literally any skin tone.

IMG_5753

Next I got an Anastasia Lip Gloss and one of they’re famous Liquid Lipsticks.

IMG_5754

I give the packaging an A+, and if you’re looking into getting one of the lip glosses, they smell like Vanilla Cupcakes, which I LOVE but some people might not, so just a warning. 🙂

IMG_5760

This is the lip gloss, and the shade is called Dainty. I was really impressed with this. It’s super long wearing, but isn’t sticky at all. And you don’t even need to wear a liner or lipstick under it. I’ve REALLY been loving the pale pinky-nude shades for the Summer, because they make you look really tan. I highly recommend picking this baby up.

IMG_5762

This is the liquid lipstick, and the shade is called Carina. This is a bright, perfect-for-Summer, matte pink. And I LOVE this stuff. What makes this special, is that liquid lipsticks are usually quite thick and heavy, but this one is surprisingly lightweight, and you only need one layer and you’re good to go.

IMG_5763

Next, my parents got me this GORGEOUS watch by Bulova. I wore it to BeautyCon, and got a ton of compliments. It’s really simply a beautiful piece of jewelry.

IMG_5767

I also got this Viva La Juicy Perfume, and I LOVE the scent. It’s girly, yet sophisticated, and I love the roller-ball, it’s super quick and easy.

IMG_5768

I got 3 samples of a Chanel Mascara.

Before:

After:

IMG_5772

This is only ONE COAT!!! I love this stuff. It’s super black, and really adds a lot of volume to the lashes.

IMG_5773

This is the Diorshow Professional Mascara, and I got it in the shade #168, which is a fun purple color.

IMG_5774

IMG_5775

IMG_5776

The last thing I received was the Too Faced The Return Of Sexy Eyeshadow Palette.

The packaging is GORGEOUS and high-quality:

IMG_5777

IMG_5778

All the shades in the palette are either shimmery, pearl, satin, or metallic.

IMG_5779

It also comes with these little idea dudes, and a Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer:

IMG_5781

It also comes with a black water-proof eyeliner in the shade Perfect Black. (It’s an awesome eyeliner). 😉

IMG_5783

Naive, Ingenue, Innocent, New In Town, Casting Couch, Pink Diamond, Icon, Divorcee, Hopeless Romantic, Primadonna, 7 Year Itch, Bombshell, Hollywood, Maneater, Beautymark.

I CANNOT say how much I love this palette in words. If you love shimmer, sparkle, and good-quality, I HIGHLY recommend this. The eyeshadows are ALL smooth, ALL pigmented, and  I am ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with this palette!!!!

Well that’s all for my 15th Birthday haul!!!!!! Hope you guys enjoyed!

Again, make sure to check out the my BeautyCon LA Vlog HERE!!!

Have an amazing, beautiful day! ❤ 😀

LOTD: Smoke and Mirrors

Hey Crazies!

Today’s look is a cross between a smokey eye, and a glittery look. I love this super dramatic look, and to tone it down, I did nude lips instead of bright or dramatic. This look can totally be worn with red lips as well. (The glitter featured is MAC 3D Silver Glitter). 🙂

Here we go:

LOTD: Brown Smokey Eyes and Dark Lips

Hey Crazies!

Today’s look is a smokey eye look, but using browns, so it’s softer. And this look will totally go with any lip color, but I went for a dark vampy red.  It’s just a very kind of classic look with a bit of a twist.

Hope you like it!
