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 ❀

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚ 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!

Birds of a Feather: Purples (lipstick swatchfest #1)

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day πŸ™‚
Today I have for you a new feature! As you all know, I have a ridiculous amount of lipsticks and I’ve been recently trying to sort through my whole collection of makeup and really find & use my favorites! Therefore, what better way to catalogue things then by posting pictures for you guys? I call it “Birds of a Feather”, since they’re not really lipstick dupes but definitely cousins. Along the way, I hope to find my favorites as well as weed out the ones I don’t like as much. Today’s ‘birds’ are all the lipsticks I call purple!
