A Belated Happy Halloween! Poison Ivy with Indie Makeup

Hope everyone’s Halloween was fun and full of candy! This year I did two costumes (Poison Ivy and Peggy Carter) but I made the extra effort for my Poison Ivy makeup. As an additional challenge I tried to use only indie makeup!

Hello Waffle February Visage (2017)

Hello all, I have a special post today! I recently received my very first Hello Waffle visage monthly box! It’s an indie makeup subscription and you can find Hello Waffle here.

I adore every single thing I’ve bought from them and I tend to pick up visage extras whenever they show up, so I took the plunge and finally subscribed to the monthly box 🙂

EOTD ~ Indie Spotlight on Victorian Disco!

Happy Monday (or in my case, “happy six cups of tea day!”) Mondays are not my favorite at all. But in order to brighten my day I decided to do a fun and easy eye look! Something you guys may not know about me is that I actually have way way more eyeshadows than lipsticks! Which really is a feat to accomplish. I’ve been collecting indie brand loose pigments for hmm, probably six years now and I have a huge collection from a lot of different brands. (As well as singles and z-palettes and a regular palettes that aren’t in the photo and well, you get the point! I have a lot of eyeshadow).


a whole drawer of eyeshadow!

I’ve been meaning to document and actually use everything I own at least once for the purposes of swatching, so I thought “why not start today?”

quick EOTD post~!

HALLELUJAH I have internet again! This week has been so weird/awful with the lack of internet. Going to a local coffee shop to get an internet fix is just not the same as being able to hang out in my own house with my good friend Netflix 😉

Anyways, posts will go back to regular soon. For now, here’s a quick eye-of-the-day I did! Lately I’ve been super obsessed with eyeliner (you’ll see my Ulta haul soon) and I’ve been playing around with different fun combos of colors. Here’s an eye look I did with an old Boots No7 Stay Perfect  liquid liner in “Sapphire” and Maybelline Color Tattoo in #65 “Gold Rush”.
(I’m wearing nothing but eyeliner and mascara, so forgive the bareface! Also the mascara is L’Oreal Butterfly Intenza which I hate/love because it’s SCENTED. WHY IS MASCARA SCENTED?? It irritates my eyes so much but it does look nice.)


gold & blue, whoo hoo!


That’s it for now! Just a fun little EOTD 😉

til later, lovlies~
