I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone with makeup lately and have been really trying to play with color! I recently received the new Urban Decay Moondust palette and couldn’t wait to dig into it. I usually am drawn to mattes and this palette is completely shimmer but with its unique duo toned jewel-tones, I couldn’t resist! I also finally dug into my metallic liquid lipsticks which I’ve been hesitant to play with. I was never a fan of frosty or pearlized lipsticks on my complexion but Colourpop Flitter, which is a close dupe for Kylie’s Heir, was sooo gorgeous with this look. Definitely something new for me! I hope you love the tutorial.
Thanks babes for all of the love on this makeup look! Tbh it’s one of my faves! As I mentioned in my review of the Nikkie Tutorials x Too Faced The Power of Makeup Collection, it’s usually pretty hard for me to get color to POP on my lower lashline. My shadows end up muddying and looking lifeless. With these shadows, however, the jewel-tones popped on my brown eyes all night long. I hope you guys really love this tutorial – I slowed down a lot more than usual and really went through my full face routine thoroughly showing you how I layer all of my complexion products, bake, and contour my nose. I hope it’s super helpful, let me know! For a list of all of the products used in this tutorial (with direct links!), keep reading this post!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing weekend. Just like many of you, Nikkie Tutorials is one of my absolute favorite beauty YouTubers — if not my absolute favorite. Her artistry is an undeniable talent but it’s her production value that really drew me to her when I discovered her channel last year (I’m always late on the train!). Everything is perfection from start to finish, her backdrops, lighting, makeup, and of course her awesome personality. I was so excited to see she was creating a palette with Too Faced, perfectly named The Power of Makeup, and was even more geeked when it showed up on my doorstep (thank you!!!).
It will be available HERE or online only at Sephora August 15th! Congratulations Nikkie!!!!
I always strayed away from traditional nail polish on my hands because I always felt that it would start chipping almost immediately. For me, a manicure never lasted more than a day or two so I always gravitated towards acrylics and gel manicures all throughout my 20s. I love doing my nails myself when I have some downtime and I’ve been on the hunt for a polish that stays on and looks fresh for days. In comes Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy™ Longwear Nail Enamel and even better… Revlon’s incredible Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat™! This product is not only easy to apply with it’s wider brush, but also longwearing and shiny!
Happy Saturday, I hope your weekend is off to a beautiful start!
We all have our favorite steps when it comes to doing our makeup, mine has always been my actual face. I always wish I could just do my face and have someone else do my eyes and lips. I love color correcting, highlighting, & contouring – just really sculpting and defining the face. The most important step is foundation, if its off, it’ll throw the rest of it off and you’ll probably end up with “ghost face” in photos. Worry not, we’ve all been there but with a few easy tips hopefully it’ll make it simpler to find your perfect match!
