So how has everyone been? The holiday season and school have been pretty crazy. I’m finally on holiday break and I couldn’t be happier! Work is keeping me busy, but I would love to know what you want to see on my blog, as well as YouTube.

Sephora VIB Sale Picks!

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year is here, and no, it isn’t Christmas. Beauty lovers have waited all year for the annual Sephora sale, and it is finally here! Enjoy 20% off for a limited time, if you are a VIB member.

I wanted to do a post dedicated to my personal picks for this sale, and I want to know what you are all picking up!
Let’s begin.

First up is this beautiful palette from Huda Beauty, called the Obsessions Palette. I personally want the palette in the shade Mauve.


Next up on my list is the Colourpop Semi Precious Shadow Palette. This is a Sephora exclusive, and is absolutely gorgeous. I have had some rocky interactions with this brand in the past, but since these will be purchased through Sephora, I feel like my experience will be a bit better!

I like to use the sale to try products I may not usually try, and one of those is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Vol 3. This gorgeous palette looks like it would be perfect for my skin tone, and is just seriously calling my name!


Have you seen the Kat Von D Everlasting Mini set?! It is so adorable, and with 20% off, who could pass it up? This set contains 8 neutral shades from the Everlasting range, and looks so pretty.

NEW NARSissit Palette?!

Okay…I know I just did my makeup wishlist but I just saw this on Facebook and I NEED THIS OMG! Screen Shot 2017-03-24 at 1.59.44 PM.png

So Nars recently came out with this beauty, the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette, and it looks absolutely stunning. This retails for $59.00 (kind of high, in my opinion) is limited edition, and offers 12 shades:
Newbury Street – frosty cream
Windsor – camel
Privilege – yellow based gold
Dover – taupey brown
Foix – corally orange (I know, my shade descriptions are the best)
Castille – orange based brown
Alnwick – red based copper/brown
Beaumaris – frosty brown
Splendor – taupe with gold shift
Versailles – bronzey gold
Montaillou – espresso brown
Reale – satin black

I genuinely want this palette, as the other palettes that Nars has come out with haven’t really caught my eye quite like this one. If you are into neutrals, I think this is a great palette, although I am still a little iffy with the price.

What do you think, have you tried this? Is this on your radar? Let me know in the comments!

My Makeup Wishlist

Ah to have unlimited money. Companies these days are coming out with so many new products, it’s hard to keep up! I thought I would compile a list of the items I want the most, and would love to hear what all of you are wishing for as well!

Before we get into it, please be sure to follow my new Instagram HERE and like my Facebook page HERE so that you always know what’s up!

First thing is the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow_11318921

OHMYGOD this product is beautiful! If you have dry skin like I do, this looks like a dream! I have seen this used a couple of different ways. This can be used for a strobing effect, or how I plan on using it is all over my face 🙂

If you have been following me for awhile on YouTube, you know that I absolutely love the MAC Strobe Cream as a moisturizer, but this claims to add a softening effect, which the Strobe Cream does not have. I just really want to try this!



Next product is the Becca Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector.

s1901891-main-LheroThis looks absolutely stunning. I have been a little hesitant to purchase Becca products after the whole drama with Jaclyn Hill, but this may be my exception. I have seen swatch after swatch of this and I am very intrigued. What do you think, would you rock a purple highlight?




Now of course I HAVE to include Too Faced in this list. Their new Natural Love palette  has me obsessed.s1928365-main-LheroI mean, just look at those colors! I love that they’ve included a lot of mattes as well as shimmers, and a variety of warm shades. I know this has been compared to the ABH Modern Renaissance a lot lately, but if I had to choose between the two, I would go with this one without a doubt. I just like the variety this palette offers a lot more than the other.

This next product is the Milk Makeup Blur Stick.

Now, I am adding this one with a slight amount of confusion. I am definitely very curious about this product, so I do want it, but I am also a little wary of it.s1898196-main-Lhero

I have seen very mixed reviews about this, but to me it seems like Benefit Porefessional in stick form. I am a firm believer in trying things for yourself, so that’s what I’m going to have to do! Have you tried this yet?





Last, but certainly not least, is the Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Lipstick.

I do not have a specific color that I want, I just simply want to try out the formula. This is another product that I have heard very mixed reviews about.s1911817-main-Lhero

Everyone on YouTube says they really love this, but a lot of people that I have talked to in my real life have said that it can crack and start to dry out a bit. This makes me wonder if the influencers are just trying to please MUFE, or if this is their true opinion.



So that is it for today’s post, I hope you enjoyed!

Sugarplum Fairy Inspired Look


Products Used:

-Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion-

-Sugarpill Tako Shadow-

-Sugarpill 2am Shadow-

-Sugarpill Poison Plum Shadow-

-Lit Cosmetics Disco Diva Glitter-

-Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil-

-Essence Nude Love Lipstick-

How I achieved this look:

Priming your eyes for a look is the most important step you can take! My favorite is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (link above).
After priming, highlight the browbone with Sugarpill Tako shadow, and then blend 2am into the crease. Next, pick up a small amount of Poison Plum on the same brush, and begin to blend that into the crease as well.
Next, I applied Disco Diva to my eyelid and blended the crease to make sure there wasn’t a line.
After that, I applied lashes and lined my waterline with my Chella pencil.
With a pencil brush, smoke out the lower lash line using a combination of 2am and Poison Plum, and then apply mascara.
To finish off this look, I used a nude lipstick, but if you are feeling adventurous, try a purple!
