My Christmas Looks

So I usually don't get inspired to do holiday makeup until the actual holiday. 

It really sucks.

Here are the makeup looks I wore and played with this Christmas.

Enjoy :]

 Christmas Eve family party :]
Golden Christmas Angel [inspired by my angel ontop of my Christmas tree!]
Christmas day.

Hope you all are having happy holidays, and the best New Year's :]

My nailpolish bucket list.

Ok, let me first address the fact that I didn't do a classic Christmas look. 
I'm sorry! I just didn't have the time. I have a 6 year old and Santa was coming.
Enough said. Next series I do will be bomb and on time, lol.

So today, I wanted to go to Sally's so bad and just buy all of the polishes I wanted. However, since Christmas especially, I am broke haha.

So here are the top 5 polishes I am going to collect first. One by one. Enjoy :]

#5 - "The One That Got Away" by OPI
So gorgeous. I love metallics, I love purple, it's opaque and I want it.

#4 - "Emerald Black" by Models Own
This is part of their "Beetlejuice" collection. I LOVE this color. I have no idea where I can get Models Own, but I need to find out and order this online asap. I like having dark colors on my nails (i'm natural and square), but I like to switch it up every few days and this could be an 'all the time' color for me. I love the duo chrome.

#3 -  "Golden Green" by Models Own
From what I've seen online, I am really liking Models Own polishes. This is also from the "Beetlejuice" collection, and literally took my breath away. I have been looking for a green metallic for a long time. Everything was always too lime, or blue. This is GREEN. Hmm, I wonder if they have an army green...
Here it is :]

#2 - "Pros and Bronze" by OPI
I grew up on OPI. I've tried to convert so many times, but I always find myself back to them. I love the brush, I love the formula, just my favorite brand! This color is beautiful. I would consider this a neutral color for me. I wear a lot of bronze and golds. I'm Italian, what can I say ;]
Take a look-see...

#1 - "Sweet Peacock" by Orly
LOVE IT! I really love blue nails, but it has to be the right kind of blue. The milky ones look odd, and I don't like the robin's egg color, or easter colors... I don't know, I'm picky with blues and this is amazing. I love metallics, they make your nails really pop. My nails are my #1 accessory!
So here is this amazing blue. I've never tried Orly, but this is soooo pretty...

So yeah, I hope you liked this post. 
The colors are by no means in any particular order. They are all a part of the many colors I want to add to my collection. I am going to look more into Models Own. If you like nail polish like the ones I showed, I think you will like them. I can't vouch for anything physical about it since I've only been stalking it online, but the colors are amazing.
I hope you all had a merry Christmas, or happy holidays. Whatever you celebrate, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

I can't help it... I give presents early ;]

I still haven't had time to do my Classic Holiday look... but, I have pics of the presents I couldn't wait any longer to give my best friend =)

I was as happy as she was, lol - I wanted to see the goodies too!

Ok so here are picssss


 Kat Von D "Metal Orchestra" palette :]

She LOVED them! I knew she would... the palette is so nice. She did a smoky eye while she was playing with it. 

The Sigma brushes are exactly what everyone says - friggen awesome.

They are so soft. She used the blending brush to do her eyes, totally amazing. The face brushes have yet to be used, but they are, again, amazing. Super soft. And really dense... but cushiony. No idea, but they are just nice and weighty and are going to be goooood brushes:]

I love the feeling of giving something to someone that you just know they're going to like. 
What she gives me is of course going to be equally awesome. So expect a post on that ;]

I loved that I got to do an 'open box' too...
Enjoy Chelsea ;]

"Naughty" holiday look

As promised, here is my naughty look :]

I really like how it turned out.

I did a purple and black cut crease, a silver lid, over the top lashes... contouring, a neutral blush and a purple lip (it's showing up a little pink, but it's purple).

I wanted major emphasis on the eyes, sultry and dark... very 'naughty' ;]

 [blowing kisses to Santa, haha]

Next up, a classic holiday look. Stay tuned :]
I love you for reading!

Lots of Love,

Holiday makeup look - "Nice"

Decided this morning that I wanted to do some holiday makeup. I don't have many parties or anything that I go to, just family functions, but these looks are what I might wear out or to a house party.

This first look is my "Nice" look. Obviously "Naughty" will be next, then a classic holiday look :]

So for this I used a shimmery white on the first half of the lid, a frosty green on the second half, and a Christmas tree green on the lower lash line and the outer V. Next I added some subtle false lashes and black liner. For the face I went really fresh with a bright, flushed pink cheek and a golden highlighter. The lips are nude with a frosty pink gloss on top. Hope you like it :]

I can't wait to do "naughty", haha!

Lots of Love,

Organizing my makeup...

Hi bloggers!!

It has been so long since I posted anything on here! So today I thought I would organize my mess of a makeup stash. Some of you have asked to see my collection, so here is drawer #1 that I need to go through...

This is going to take allllllll day!!
Definitely thinking about having a blog sale. I will upload another pic when I'm done [if I don't somehow drown in my stuff, lol]

I'm glad to be back and posting! Hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it).
How are you all doing with holiday shopping?! Thanks to the internet, I'm almost done :]

Lots of Love,

Nails of the Moment - "Flirty Rockstar"

I am really, REALLY loving the Sally Hansen Xtreme wear polishes. I think I have... 8 now? Anyway, I painted my nails with "Flirt", and added a coat of "Rockstar Pink" on my accent nails. 

This is my "nail bye week". The week where each nail gets to the perfect shape and length. Next week, check my blog for my pre-Halloween "Candy Corn" nails. Eek! It's such an awesome concept. We shall see.

THEN, for the week OF Halloween, I'm going to experiment with nail design art. I have some ideas :]
Is anyone else incorporating the spooky holiday into their fashion?
I'd love to see!

Snippet #1... something DEFINITLY new ;]

So, I live life.

There are random moments in my life that are sometimes filmed.

Other than that, I don't know what to say. 

Everyday people.

Lol, awesome sauce.

So, apparently I can't "blog"

Seriously enough, I can't blog daily. It takes a lot of time, energy, and effort to make a makeup blog post suitable for the internet. I am lacking on inspiration lately...

but with the Bruin's starting tonight, the makeup Gods have been speaking to me.

So, follow me on Facebook. I am on there all day long. I post pics and such on there WAY more than this blog.
I still would like to post when I have a real deal something. So, until then, I can still keep track of your blogs on Facebook...

[click that, we can be friends]
Lots of Love,

Theme Collab with YouTuber PiinkLemonaade :]

I watch a lot of YouTube, and while I was browsing I found a new girl to watch. Her tutorials are nice, and she is awesomely daring with her makeup sometimes.

I messaged her and asked if she would like to collab on a video/post theme, and I could have died when she said yes. Lmao.

Anyway, I got white wine, and she did red wine. Check out her video, I'm putting it at the end.
I hope you enjoyed this little combo. It was fun making it, and I actually got really into the white wine thing.
I even added some green and purple, and brown liner. It was fun!

I hope you like it, as always.
I really think it came out nice,
it kinda looks like bridal makeup though.

Check out PiinkLemonaade's video :]
[she hasn't posted it yet, when she does I will do an updated post]

Super fast EOTD!

I do this super fast when sleep is so much better than getting ready

This is Sidecar from the Naked Palette, and black Rimmer eyeliner. Oh, and L'Oreal Voluminous mascara.

I know, I know, my eyebrows. Whatever, when I'm in a hurry eyebrows is really not important lmao! anyway, just smudged the liner with the smudger that comes on the eyeliner. It's like a sponge. That's it, guided it where I wanted it and ta-da! I really like how it looks blue-ish. Very cool.

Also, I collaborated with one of my favorite YouTubers and we are doing a take on red wine and white wine. I got white wine, it's gonna be a good time ;] Look for it this weekend. I'm finally catching up on my blog reading!

Lots of Love,

Q of the Day...

I am very excited about the coming of fall.
I have my leggings prepped, my jackets in sight, and boots waiting impatiently to be worn.

Now, I have my constant 3 fall nail polishes. I WANT NEW ONES!
What is a good fall nail polish?
I want a nice, blood red too.
And an army green, but not a cream... 
does that exist? Lol...

Sooo, can you girls share what you're favorites are? What your staples are? 
I'm so sick of my colors at the moment.

Lots of Love,

Tiffany Blue?

I went to go buy hair dye today because, well, I'm dying my hair. Anyway, of course we browse the rest of the store before leaving. 

BTW, anyone know a good, non-sticky frizz serum [not frizz-ease]?

So yeah, at Sally's and I saw Turned Up Turquoise by China Glaze. It was sold out the last time I went, so I snatched it this time. It's this really beautiful color, a deep emerald-y blue type of color. So I bought it and put it on, then got crafty and put little jewels. Well, the color looks like this...

But photographs like this...

"Turned Up Turquoise" by China Glaze

I have no idea how it went from a gorgeous greeny blue in person, to this on camera. I know alot of people love the Tiffany color, but I don't. I'm really disappointed I can't show what it really looks like but it's gorgeousssss.

Really pretty, this is my first China Glaze. I like this one, I give it a 4 out of 5, just because it changed to this awful color in EVERY light when I was trying to take pics...

I'm sure there will be a look up after I'm done dying my hair. I also have a request that I need to jump on. School starts very soon, so we'll be back to the old schedule :]

Lots of Love,

In need of some inspiration...


nothing (that i own) is sparking my interest... i feel the urge to do something dramatic.

when i get paid, i will be ordering Sugarpill's Midori e/s and Royal Sugar pigment. 

i love the Royal Sugar, and i need to play with it before my birthday. it's gonna be my makeup 
(sept = sapphire/royal sugar = sapphire-esque sparkly awesomeness.)

ideas, anyone?

Wearable Sugarpill :]

I'm in love with Sugarpill's Dollypop eyeshadow, so today I decided I wanted to wear it wearably (?) out!
I used it to "smoke out" my faux gold.
In case you guys don't know the colors, here they are -

Products Used

SO yeah, another quick look. I am really loving Faux Gold too. It's one of those shadows that can look like all sorts of different shades. Loves it.

EOTD Color Blocking

So I was bored and applied this summer's color blocking trend to my eyes today :]
This may not be wearable to most or some of you, but I rock this in the daytime!

Products Used

I had a lot of fun doing this, and I really like the two colors together. I think when this "trend" is over, I will still use it in my makeup. Has anyone else done any color blocking? I'd love to see it!
Lots of Love,

Gold/Purple Nails

I guess I am subconsciously impatient for fall! My nails are such fall colors :]

Purple nails: 1 coat OPI "Lincoln Park After Dark", 2 coats Zoya "Faye"
Accent gold nail: 2 coats Sally Hansen "Mellow Yellow", 1 coat Zoya "Tanzy"

I loveeeee the gold microglitters in these Zoya polishes. And just for reference they are from Zoya's Summer Collection 2011

Lots of Love,

I do looks like this when I'm in a rush, or just want to do a simple, everyday look.
Gold lid, brown crease, black liner, purple liner, mascara.

Love to all,

Just letting anyone interested in some new goodies that I am having an e-bay sale. I might do a blog sale. I have so many things unopened that I impulse bought.

see, "a serious shopping habit" haha


So yeah, thanks for looking if you do :]

Ideas anyone?

sitting here bored...
trying to think of a new series to do for my blog. yeah, i'm lame.
ideas? tell me...
[i'm thinking of one, but want input... what do you wanna see?]

Pink Wednesdays & AOTD!

I haven't done a pink Wednesday in a while, so I decided to do a little 2 in 1 post today :] 

First, here is the pink I chose today - 

OPI's "Don't Socrate-tease Me"
2 coats of polish, Zoya top coat

I know it looks a little red in the picture, but in reality, it is a red/pink base with a reallllllly pretty pink iridescence. Click on the picture, you can see it better :]

Now, my AOTD (Accessory of the Day) - 

Hello Kitty Bling Ring

Again, if you want a better look, click on the picture. I don't get why the pictures I put on here always load smaller than they are! Anyway, I LOVE this ring. Another e-Bay purchase. If you are smart about e-Bay, you can get anything you want. I always check the boxes for top rated seller, free shipping, buy it now, and new. Then I browse! 

Back to the point. This ring was $4 from Beijing. No shame in my game, I don't care. I will buy something from China, everything is made there anyway ;] This is fun, costume jewelry. My friend said she'd punch me if I ever bought this with real diamonds. The ring is Swarovski crystals. The actual detail of the ring is amazing, looks just like Miss Kitty! I love it.

Have any of you e-bayed?

Lots of love,

Captain America - Super Soldier


Here is part 2, the more literal of the series. Part 1 was classic 40's era makeup, and this is WAY more costume makeup [which btw, is my favorite makeup to do]

Here is the inspiration pic -

Here is my recreation -

I just did the eyes, because the face wouldn't really have been anything. No lipstick, nothing like that. Had I done my face I probably would have contoured with a gray toned powder. I wanted to keep it looking "dirty" - I am a soldier. Soldiers get dirty. I wanted to keep some of the star in the look, so I went with disconnected star points for my outer corner. I lined that with red to keep the red in the look as well.

Since the inspiration picture is so dark and dirty, I kept it just that. I used a bunch of grays and blacks, I used a bright silver on the inner corner for drama, and my lid just a very dark blue. I blended everything out with typographic from MAC. It's just a dark gray. This would be my Captain America super soldier war-paint. 

This was so much fun. Another cool movie needs to come out so I can do some more :]
Tomorrow is going to be an AOTD and NOTD, so stay watchin' for that!

Love you all,
