Summer Vibes – Warm Pink Makeup

Hello beautiful people!

This warm weather and sunshine has me feeling some kind of way lately! I LOVE the sun, and I LIVE for sunny 75° days where the sun can beat down on my skin and remind me why I am lucky to be alive!

I created a really pretty eye look using the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette to celebrate the sunny season, and wanted to share it with you all! I am really sorry a lot of my eye looks have been using the same palette lately. The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette is just incredibly versatile, and there are SO many amazing subtle, glam, and crazy looks you can create with it.

ANYWAY, here is the final result!

I won’t go to much into face makeup deets because they are not what I want to highlight in this look. However, I will list what colors from the palette I used if you like this color scheme and decide to try a similar look yourself.

  1. Crease/Inner V: Silk Creme and M.F.E.O.
  2. Crease: S.B.N.
  3. Center Lid: Little Lady
  4. Outer V: Jacz (very small amount)
  5. Lower Lash Line: Silk Creme, M.F.E.O., Jacz
  6. Inner Corner: Faint

Then I used the brush I used for my crease and inner v to buff and blend all of the colors together. Here is a better view of my eyelids so you can see how the blended colors looked.

My lipstick is the Ciaté London Liquid Velvet lipstick in the shade “Secrets”. I love this color, and this formula! My mom bought me this lipstick at the Sephora in Times Square, NYC back in September 2017, and it is such a shade for all seasons! It is one of the BEST matte lipsticks because it does not crack, crease, or dry out your lips! I definitely recommend Ciaté London liquid lipsticks if you want a good one to try.

What do you think of this makeup look? Do you like it? What colors remind you of summer?

xoxo until next time!

I Tried to Follow a Kristen Davis Makeup Tutorial – This is What Happened

Happy Sunday everybody!

I’m sure you’ve all seen the tag going around YouTube – beauty YouTubers are filming themsleves following other beauty YouTubers’ makeup tutorials. I decided to try it for myself, and I knew I wanted to use the pretty blue shades from the MorphexJaclynHill palette. So I did a little YouTube searching and found a fun tutorial from Kristen Davis that made following the eye makeup look easy. You can view it below!

Her look is gorgeous, right? I didn’t have all of the exact products she used (other than the Morphe palette of course), and the false lashes I had on hand were a bit on the dramatic side…. LOL. Here is my final result!

Don’t be fooled – the lighting makes it look a lot better than it actually was. I thought I looked like a drag queen (nothing wrong with drag except I don’t look good with this dramatic of a look… plus I want to look like a woman, not like a man trying to look like a woman).

How do you guys think I did? The glitter eyeshadow topper I used was not as intense as hers (I used Colourpop’s Alchemy, she used an actual eye glitter), and the lashes she used were a better length for her face than the ones I used.

I never adventure with bold blues because I feel like blues don’t look well on my skin tone or with my hazel eye color. Nonetheless, this look was fun and definitely out of my comfort zone! Who’s eyemakeup tutorial do you think I should try next?!

Comment below on how you think I did, and if you would like to see me attempt more beauty tutorials from YouTube!

Crochet Hat Project

Good morning leaps readers!

I have recently taken up crocheting, and I am so obssessed with it! I’ve been learning through online tutorials from Melanie Ham, who is a crafter and blogger. She is amazing if you are interested in crocheting and have some time to learn!

Anyway, I tried using wool yarn the other day to make a messy bun beanie (a hat with an open top so your bun can stick through), but that project ended up looking more messy than beanie… LOL. So, I decided to try to crochet a slouchy hat using 100% acrylic yarn, and the outcome was SO PRETTY!

Here is close up – I matched my makeup of the day to my hat! I used purples and pink shimmers from the MorphexJaclynHill palette to do my eye makeup. My lipstick is the holiday 2017 Ultra Matte Lip from Colourpop in the shade Lil Pump!

Here is another angle that shows off the hat and eye makeup (and my engagement ring lol) a little more. This hat took me a little under four hours to make in its entirety.

The fit is relaxed and slouchy, and it stays on well. There has been no slipping of the hat over my eyes or off of my head! I am really excited to make a few more of these. My sister already asked me to make her one!

If you like my crochet work, be sure to check out my Etsy and take a look at my crochet bun covers! I might be adding hats to the listings if I get some more good feedback from other people!

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Until next time xoxo
