January Empties & Reverse Rouge Update

Happy February and happy Friday! It is an especially happy friday for me. I got my laptop back!! The new hard drive means I lost the last few weeks of photos (Don’t be me, folks! Back up often! ) butΒ I am so happy to have my laptop again. Today has been a great day so far since I can actually do my work on something other than a tiny phone screen πŸ™‚

I have all my empties for January as well as an update on the Reverse Rouge project!

Happy 2017 & Makeup Resolutions

Happy omg-it’s-already-a-week-into-January ! I cannot believe how fast time has flown. Part of me wishes I had accomplished a lot more of my to-do list in 2016, but unfortunately I don’t have a time machine to go back and change things. I don’t like making hard-setΒ new year resolutions, but for 2017 I’m really aiming to just get more done! Time always slips by faster than you’d like.

In makeup news, I have some interesting (and hopefully fun!) plans for 2017. In an effort to really appreciate my large and beautiful stash, I’ll be participating in a bunch of different makeup challenges. I invite you to join me in them πŸ™‚

Halloween Makeup Roundup – Five Looks from The Wicked & The Divine Comic Book

Happy November 1 everyone! Halloween is my favorite holiday yet I found myself this year with no solid plans and no costume! So what’s a girl to do? Whip out her makeup collection and make an awesome Halloween face πŸ™‚

This year I took inspiration from one of my favorite comic series, The Wicked & The Divine. The makeup and outfits on the characters are all so unique, detailed, and bold. I channeled four of my favorite characters to created five cool looks perfect for Halloween.

Pale & Light Foundation and Concealer Swatches

Hello all!

It feels like it’s been forever since my last post. I’m 99% settled into my new apartment butΒ still trying to figure out the best configuration for all my makeup and vanity things…. It’s hard when you have a small space! πŸ™‚

Today I have a big post for you:Β all my foundations and concealers swatched! I’ve never been properly matched at MAC, but from reading a lot (and I meanΒ a lot) on reddit MakeUpAddiction and PaleMUA, I would put myself in the NC5-10 ish range. I think I’m more of a true neutral than strongly warm or cool.

I keep buying new base products to try because gosh darn it! It’s so hard to find something that matches perfectly!

August Empties!

Omg guys I’m moving in one week [insert panicky scream here]. It’s my biggest move in a long while and I totally forgot how long it takes to pack! I’ll definitely be packing until the very last minute.

On that note, I have a lot of August empties because I aggressively tried to use up as much as I could of all the half-full random things I have around. There’s a lot and I’m proud of myself, haha πŸ™‚

Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited πŸ™‚

I’ve had quite a backlog of my Birds of a Feather series that I’ve been meaning to post… so I’m procrastinating on packing for my move by playing with my makeup! Today I have jewels to show off: my emeralds! Now not all of these areΒ emerald, but these are my dark greens to my weird olives. I love green- it really helps show off the green in my hazel eyes. Alas, I rarely wear it as anything other than liner. I just can’t seem to get a fully green eye look to work on me! Any tips and tutorials from you guys would be loved ❀

June & July Empty Products!

It has been madness around my place this past month. Oh, and apparently I’m moving sometime earlyΒ September and it’s sort of unplanned and [insert excited & frantic screaming here].

If anyone has tips for how to safely pack and move with makeup and perfume (especially the 394734 indie samples I own) I would greatly appreciate it!

And without further ado, here is my super belated pile of June and July empties!
