Classic Christmas Makeup

Classic Christmas Makeup: Festive and Fun

 

holiday makeup

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great holiday season.  I wanted to come do a classic Christmas makeup tutorial because, of course!  I went with very very classic: simple eye, radiant skin, and a bold red lip.  Now I almost never wear a red lip, but when I do you can pretty much be completely certain that it is Christmas.  It is super easy, and I created the look using my new Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette, which I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised by and totally loving.  Be sure to check out the makeup tutorial below if you like the look and would like to see how I got it!  I hope you enjoy :)

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015: Maria Borges Won the Night

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015

victoria's secret fashion show 2015

 

Being yourself is always the right [thing] to do. By being yourself, I mean choosing the hairstyle that you want and not what people ask you to do in order to be beautiful or sexy in their eyes,” Maria Borges

My LOVES! The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015 has come and gone, but there was a truly historic moment very few will be talking about.  While most outlets will be obsessing over Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, I would like to turn your attention to true hero of the night: Maria Borges.  The 23 year old Angolan model opted to walk the runway sans extensions wearing her natural hair, saying, “I told my agent I wanted to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show with my natural hair.  I was nervous, but I had to do it. When they said yes, I didn’t expect it, but I was so happy!”

Courageous is an understatement.  I was reminded of my days as a 2nd grader, rocking a very similar cut and all the teasing I had to endure.  I remember then feeling ugly and ridiculous.  And looking at her, I see the same strength it took for me to pull through and shape a sense of self that refused to bow to society’s standards of beauty.  Some may have mixed feelings about her decision, but I love the way Maria Borges used her platform to represent a beauty we all too rarely get to see.  This is one Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show I was more than happy to watch.

Purple Holiday Makeup Look

Purple Holiday Makeup: Holiday Glam for a Night Out

purple holiday makeup

Hey guys! I wanted to come and show you a makeup look I have been loving recently! It is using my customized palette of Coastal Scents Hot Pots.  I put it together recently and I have to say that I really enjoy it!  The shadows are so buttery and pigmented, and it is gorgeous.  It reminds me of the Jaclyn Hill palette a little bit, but it definitely has my own twist on it.  I think this look will be perfect for Holiday parties, or just a night out this season, and my favorite part about it is that it’s different than your classic Holiday look.

Be sure to check out the video below! Hope you enjoy :)
