Playing with Color Placement

7 Sep

Hey there friends. Not really sure if I like this one, but I’ll post it anyways, see what everyone thinks.color placement 2

I’m always impressed when makeup artists are able to pick seemingly random color placements on their eyes and it turns out f*cking fantabulous every single time. So I turned off my brain, grabbed my UD Electric Palette and some Colourpop and MUFE shadows, and got to it.


The eyeliner is definitely my favorite part of this look. I’m planning to replicate it in a simpler, more neutral look so it can really shine, as I do feel it gets a little overpowered by all the colors.

Products used were most of the Urban Decay Electric Palette, a few Make Up For Ever shadows, a tiny bit of Sugarpill, Colourpop SuperShock shadows in Dare, Slave2Pink, Animal, and Ibiza; and the Physicians Formula Eye Booster.

Makeupstorming | Avant Pop Mermaid ft. NYX

18 Jul

Hey there friends. I recently picked up a few things from NYX and had a very VERY quick playtime with them at 11:00 pm. I’m not kidding; I get off work at 9:30, bone tired, and the first thing I think is GOTTA GO DO MAKEUP NOW. I’m insane, I swear.

Anywho, this was done in about ten minooooots, so no judgey-judging the sloppy lines.


Man, I love blues and greens on my eyes. I really have to force myself to do looks with warm tones, especially warm neutrals. I think I was born to wear blue eyeshadow. It is my legacy 🙂

♦ NYX Avant Pop Palette (the colorful one)

Thoughts? I think I’m especially weird right now…it only gets worse as the night goes on.

Review | Colour Pop Haul & Swatches

17 Jul

Hey there friends. Kay, I knowww I’m late late late to this bandwagon. But now that I’m here, I’ll admit- it’s amazing.


I totally didn’t mean to buy a rainbow, but that’s kinda what happened. Prepare yourself for the barrage of photos ☺DSC07905

I’ve used all these shades once in a look today. My thoughts are: AHHHH THESE ARE AMAZINGGGG.

But seriously, I NEED to place another order. Maybe one with more neutrals. Anyhow, here’s a shade rundown.

Erotic is a gorgeous blue-based red with golden sparkles. It applied well with a brush. All of these colors apply best with your fingers, but some of them I was able to apply and blend out with a synthetic brush. Animal is a coral-orange with golden sparkles. Similar consistency to the others, very smooth. Sour is a yellow with a tinge of green; it was a bit patchier than the others. Fizz is a bright green with loads of silver sparkles. It was the hardest to work with because of all the glitter but once on, it was sooo beautiful, probably my favorite of the bunch. colour pop 2

Ibiza is a turquoise blue with a bit of sparkle. It’s been on my to-buy list for probably months. It has one of the smoothest consistencies of any shadow I’ve ever owned. Love. I ♥ This is difficult to describe…it’s a neutral-to-cool toned silvery taupe with silver sparkle. Instant impact when applied with a fingertip. The two Lippie Stix have similar buttery formulas. Charm and Raw need to be layered several times to achieve full opacity. I don’t know yet about the lasting power, but they do not dry down much, so I’d guess only 2-4 hours.

Thoughts on Colour Pop? I’ve got two very different looks using these products coming up soon soon very soon, so stay tuned 🙂 Overall I’m extremely happy; for $5 a pop, CP really delivers on the quality (and the shipping! I got free shipping and my order arrived in < a week. Radddd.)
