MAC MATTE LIPSTICK COLLECTION: THE BRIGHTS

mac lipstick for dark skin

I am a HUGE lipstick girl.  I love all types of lipstick, from matte to satins, and I have tried a very wide range of them from different brands…but I always come back to MAC.  I love the quality and consistency, and I have to admit, there is something oddly satisfying about adding to my collection of sleek, bullet shaped lipstick tubes.

Even from before I started my channel, I loved watching dark I have done a lipstick swatch video from the MAC Matte Collection, with more fall/winter shades, and so I wanted to come on and do a video on the more colorful shades in this collection.  If you are into matte lips, but don’t like liquid lipsticks then I highly recommend these!  There are gorgeous, pigmented, and wear very comfortably for the most part.  Even the driest of them, the Retro Mattes, are comfortably wearable over a good base.  The normal mattes are very creamy, while also longwearing, and I recommend them for on the go wear.  I have also included some dark skin lipstick  lip liner suggestions for those of us who need to tone the brightness down! Enjoy 🙂

MORPHE BRUSHES EYESHADOW PALETTE HAUL AND REVIEW!

 

morphe-brushes8

If you spend any time on Instagram looking at makeup and beauty posts, then you have most likely heard of Morphe Brushes. They are well known for their makeup application tools, but it is their eyeshadows that caught my attention! I first heard about these shadows from Jaclyn Hill, and was lucky enough to be able to snag the Jaclyn Hill palette when it came out.  I loved the shadows in that limited edition release so much that I decided that I needed to get my hands on more palettes.

On this haul I picked up the Morphe 35O Palettes, both the shimmer and the matte, along with the 35F palette.  I love them.  The shadows are buttery and smooth, while very pigmented and consistent.  Some pots do have a more powdery texture, but it’s not a huge problem.  If you want to see my review, along with swatches, be sure to check out the video below!  Enjoy 🙂

HIGHLIGHTER FOR DARK SKIN: JACLYN HILL CHAMPAGNE POP COLLECTION

HIGHLIGHTER FOR DARK SKIN

I remember when I was starting out in makeup, I noticed that celebrities often had a certain glow.  I later came to realize that this glow was the result of highlighter, and then decided that I needed to find a way to make highlighting a part of my makeup routine! My highlighter collection has grown exponentially since then, as I continue the search to find the perfect highlighter for dark skin, and many of my favorites are Becca Cosmetics products.  I am a huge fan of Becca Cosmetics highlighters.  They are buttery, pigmented, and smooth and they are so beautiful on a wide range of skin tones.

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 🙂
