I love to spice up a casual grey or black outfit with a pop of color in my earrings and my eyeshadow! When your eyeshadow is bright and your earrings are a statement, you want to keep your outfit basic and your other accessories minimal. I always choose a delicate necklace to go with a bold earring and a nude lip to rock with a darker eyeshadow. These earrings are by one of my favorite designers, Molly Phillips.

If you are loving the eyeshadows the colors are Thankful, Fancy, Gingerly and Timid. Instead of Thankful (since it is currently out of stock- I also want to try this look with Cynical. The Splash Liquid lipstick I wore here lasted through Margaritas and tacos! So it must be good! It is the color, Stellar. Check out my live tutorial on Facebook early next week! I'd love to hear your thoughts on this look in the comments!
Mom life is seriously the best life. These little people drive me all sorts of insane all day. So much so that sometimes I don’t even know how I’m going to survive the next hour until bedtime, but somehow after being away from them for one day, I miss their presence and I miss their craziness!!
As moms, we get all caught up in those crazy moments. The ones when our kids are screaming at the top of their lungs just to annoy the crap out of us! You know those wonderful moments?! Then we take two seconds to snap that sweet picture above and it captures the best in all of us. It makes me realize that sometimes I need to stop rushing around and just breath. Look around and enjoy that sweet little smile and those cute pants on backwards!
Anywho, back to makeup. Because that’s why you’re reading this anyways, right? I chose a soft look for a quick play date and to feel put together. Makeup is my confidence and my energy!! I created a custom palette from this month’s kudos using Pressed Shadow...
Can you believe it’s shorts weather?! Gosh I love Texas when Spring comes early. I pulled out my military green shorts from a Lulus.com sale last summer, a Rack top and my new green booties for Drew’s Bday! Here are some shorts that are similar. I’m super picky about my shorts because I struggle with them riding up and showing my butt! Do y’all have this issue too? I love that they are making shorts longer in the back now! Definitely makes me feel more confident and I’ve been rockin’ them more lately!
I did a live tutorial on this eye makeup look on Facebook, so be sure to catch it! I am Loving the neutral subtle pink! It definitely makes my green eyes pop. Oh and that Dip and Draw Liner makes the best wing! The lips are Younique Opulence Lipstick in Ritzy with Lucrative Lipgloss in Lovable.
Spring means bright colors and St patty’s Day means green! Did you wear your Green today?
Let me know if you want those earrings too! I received tons of compliments on them!
Yep, here’s that truly nude palette you all have been requesting! For all of my nude eyeshadow lovers, this is for you! 😍💗😍 I used the colors Timid, Gentle, Astute and Gullible. You can snag them here. Using 3 matte colors (meaning no shimmer) and one metallic color (shimmer- Gentle) Gives great depth but also a very natural finish. The key to eyeshadow is to emphasize the natural beautiful shape of your eye whilst bringing out your eye color. Nude browns look beautiful on every eye color. Using a more golden metallic as your one shimmer shadow would be best for green, hazel and blue eyes. The gold will bring out the yellow in the green eyes and make the blue eyes stand out better. For Blue, Hazel and Green eyes Gentle is a more silver/taupe/pink which might darken your eyes a bit, so using Alive, Manipulative or Fanatical would be best instead of Gentle. Gentle is perfect for brown or dark eyes.
Don't forget that this month’s Kudos gets you this palette (or any palette) plus a Spl...
I am so obsessed with this bag! It may just be the free collection bag that comes with the Younique collections of makeup, but it is literally has become my everyday bag! It fits everything from makeup to my giant iPhone. It’s cross body so you can be hands free plus the strap is removable if you just want to use it as a makeup bag.
My Makeup for today: a daytime smokey Eye and a pink lip! I used two simple colors from the Younique Pressed shadows collection . The smokey satin gray is Irrational and the gold is the new Alive! It is stunning! You’ll need good brushes for this look like the Deluxe brush and the Blending brush. You’ll also need a neutral powder to highlight your brow bone. If you love this bag, the best deal for you is to snatch up one of these collections! They save you money bundled together. I recommend this one for eyes and this one if you need your base face. Have you seen this month’s kudos too!? It’s an insane deal at 30% off! Pl...
