Hello Waffle April 2017 Visage – Where the Wild Things Are

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE! I have accomplished the impossible, haha 🙂 This is the last 2017 Hello Waffle visage review I needed to catch up on. You can find all things Visage here, or continue back in time to March here (or jump forward to the most recent December 2017 here!)

This month’s inspiration was the very fun Where The Wild Things Are book.

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.

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 ❤

Birds of a Feather: Blues & Greens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another installment of ‘Birds of a Feather’! This time I moved on to my eyeshadow collection and catalogued my blues and greens. I’ll go back to my lipstick collection soon, no worries! There’s just so many reds that are ever so slightly different that it’s taking a bit more time than usual. Isn’t that always the problem with reds, haha 😉

Anyways, onto today’s colors!

Halloween Makeup #2: 60s! (a.k.a Victoria from ‘The Man From UNCLE’)

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I had some fun doing a 60s style look 🙂 It’s mostly inspired by the glamorous Victoria from the film “The Man from UNCLE” with a dash of Gaby as well. This is a really easy Halloween look to do, since it’s more of a period style than a crazy full-out costume. If you’re looking for some 60s makeup inspiration, read on!
