Hello Waffle Visage July 2017

This month’s  Visage theme was Little House in the Big Woods. I appreciate that Hello Waffle always includes a sheet that outlines the theme as well as the contents of each month’s box. This month was something I was unfamiliar with (sorry! I never read the Laura Inglalls books much as a kid!), so I appreciate the extra work to include the explanation of theme.

Shiro Cosmetics Fall Collection: A Series of Unfortunate Events

I am literally a year late with this review, but hey! Better late than never! And of course the timing felt right since it’s truly autumn sweater weather now.

I have Shiro’s whole “Collection of Calamitous Cosmetics” swatched for you today. It is their Series of Unfortunate Events collection from fall 2016. Their new fall 2017 collection just dropped today too! It’s inspired by the animated mini-series “Over the Garden Wall”.  I am OBSESSED with Shiro’s fall collections. Remember the Harry Potter one from fall 2015? Still one of my all time faves. The fall eyeshadows they make are just pure perfection.

Without further ado, let’s view this incomparable tragedy about orphans, terrible villains, a secret society, and many unfortunate events.

Birds of a Feather: Warm Autumnal Matte Browns!

birds-of-a-feather-warm-brown-HEADER

Hello and welcome back to a much-delayed installment of Birds of a Feather, where I swatch a whole pile of similar colors next to each other! Today, in the spirit of September and the rapidly coming fall season, I broke out some of my favorite warm brown autumn shades. These are 99% matte shades.

These are primarily loose shadows, although I do show off my custom (massive) GlamTech palette of pressed shadows and swatch some of those too!

If you love pumpkins, firesides, coffee, butterscotch, oversized sweaters….. well this is the right place for you.

Hello Waffle Visage Box March 2017

Hello all! The end of May and April have been crazy busy, both in bad and good ways. I had an endless plague of computer and car problems, and I’m in the middle of moving to a new state (again!). So forgive my slow posts. I do plan on doing a combined April + May empties post later on this month!

Today I have a belated review of the Hello Waffle Visage from March!

Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited 🙂

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 are 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 ❤
