A Belated Valentine’s Day Tutorial

الله‎ and Evil Eye gold & diamond necklaces by @georgethejeweler | Y Layered Necklace: Baublebar

Happy Friday!

Ha! If you follow me on Instagram & caught my stories these past couple weeks, I’m sure you saw I was stuck editing this video for what felt like forever! This was my first time filming in 4k, & I do have to say that the quality of the footage looked incredible, but I just can’t do that again before updating my iMac’s RAM. Holy Moly!

I created this romantic glam look and was planning on getting it up before Valentine’s Day to give y’all some inspo but alas… its late! I’m a heavy glam girl no matter the season or occasion so I’d wear this look year-round anyways. If you’re into my makeup looks, I’m gonna guess that we’re on the same wave length! Enjoy the look & let me know what you think!

Cozy Brown Fall Makeup

TGIF!!! Is it just me or was this the longest week ever? I can’t believe there’s one week left until the Holidays and 2018 will be here in a blink, ahh!

As we make the official transition from fall to winter next week, I wanted to squeeze in one more cozy fall look. Y’all know I love my browns! I used the new-ish Morphe 35O2 Second Nature Palette and it’s giving me all the hot chocolate vibes. I loveee all of their neutral palettes & as always you can use coupon code IRENE for a discount on anything Morphe!

Enjoy the tutorial!

It’s also just perfect for winter and the holidays around the corner — I just love glitter and the colors are so warm, cozy, and chocolatey. Testing out some new products in this look as well like the new Huda Beauty Faux Filter foundation & Tarte Tartelette Toasted palette!

Whistler with BECCA Cosmetics | Canada

Iya’s first international trip, y’all! This time last week I was cuddled up with my lovebug in the mountains of Whistler, British Columbia! BECCA Cosmetics invited me to celebrate the launch of their holiday palettes, the Aprés Ski Glow Collection, and they were so accommodating with me bringing my daughter along. Iya is just shy of four months old and is exclusively breast-fed so there’s no chance of us being separated any time soon, neither of us are ready! I already got sappy about it on Instagram, so I’ll spare you the dramatics but BECCA welcoming us with open arms truly meant a lot. I had all kinds of anxieties about becoming a mother in this industry, thinking I wouldn’t be able to travel anymore or really participate in things but so far even with the challenges, my work-life balance has been incredible. Gotta roll with the punches!

Flawless Bronze Makeup

Happy Monday!

I am SO happy to see the amazing feedback on this look as it was one of my favorites as well – THANK YOU!! I used a ton of Morphe products to create this look which is great because their products are so affordable, especially when I tend to use pricier complexion products – it’s great to have a high/low balance. I mentioned a blue shampoo in this video that’s keeping my blue-black hair on point, you can get it HERE.

Alrighty, enjoy the tutorial and leave me some love! Please don’t forget to subscribe, it means so much. xo
