Wedding Guest, Shay Mitchell Inspired, LORAC Unzipped Palette Tutorial!

lorac unzipped tutorial

Hey guys! I had to get this LORAC Unzipped tutorial up because wedding season is at hand and I know a lot of wedding attendees will be snapping photos of their own.  Those of you who follow me already know LORAC is one of my favorite cosmetic lines.  I really love the LORAC Unzipped palette for soft, romantic looks.  It is similar to the Urban Decay palette, but better suited to my skin tone in my opinion.  Whether you are breaking it down on the dance floor, or pouncing for the bouquet, this look is sure to impress! I wish you all a happy wedding season, and hope you have the most fun 🙂 to fab photos, and beautiful memories! I hope you enjoy this LORAC Unzipped tutorial and even give it a spin yourselves!

Plum Smokey Eye for Smoldering Nights Out!

plum smokey eye

Why a Plum Smokey Eye?

Who doesn’t love a smokey eye? I think it’s pretty safe to say that most of us can surely appreciate one, even if we aren’t up to rocking them all the time.  I love a classic black smokey eye as much as the next girl, but sometimes I like to jazz it up with a twist!  Cue the colors: I opted for plum this time, and decided to add a pop of glam with a bright gold along the lower lash line.  I LOVE how this came out, and I hope you all enjoy it too!

Preen.me VIP: Laura Gellar Beauty Spring 2014 Collection

preenme vip laura gellar

Hey guys! So I’ve already told you all that I am a fan of Preen.me, here, and so I was more than ecstatic when they reached out to me to try some products from Laura Geller beauty as part of the Preen.me VIP program.  The set, which includes products from the Laura Geller Beauty Spring 2014 Collection, includes some very beautiful eyeshadows and the most long wearing liquid eyeliners I have tried in a long time…if not ever.  I swatched one of the liquid liners from the Calligraphy set before I went to bed, and when I woke up it was still there.  Though it had smudged a tiny bit during the night, I’m not a still sleeper, the intensity and color had withstood the test of time.  Without further ado, here is the video!

smokey cat eye

I usually (pretty much always) prefer and go for the nude lip, but I actually really love the way Sangria works with the eyeshadows I used. Yay, for trying (and most importantly, liking) new things! I hope you all will try this look out.  You can swap out the eyeshadow colors to give this sultry smokey cat eye a different effect every time.

I hope you enjoyed the video and had an amazing Valentine’s Day no matter who you spent it with!
