GOLD CUT CREASE FT. LORAC PRO PALETTE

Leave a Comment
I'm going to keep this post strictly a makeup look with attached details, no chit chat. For the face base I used my trusty Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation. To conceal blemishes I used my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and for under my eyes I used my Bobbi Brown Corrector to hide grayness, topped it off with my L'Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter for brightness and highlighting. To set all the liquids in place I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. For blush I used my Milani Luminoso Blush and to contour I used a mix of NYX Taupe Blush with Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, I place my contour below my cheek bones, on the sides and top of my forehead, and lightly (very lightly) on the sides of my nose. To create freckles, I used my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony and lightly buffed it out with a small, dense brush. One to the eyes, first I set down my favorite base, MAC Painterly Paintpot and the only shadows I used were from the Lorac Pro Palette. I mixed Mauve and Cream for a transitional shade then used Espresso to add depth. On the lid I used Gold and LT. Bronze mixed, Nude is placed in the inner corner. For the wing I used the Kat Von D. Tattoo Liner and Lashes are from Miss Adoro, they are #46, topped off with L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara, which is my absolute favorite mascara in the waterproof formula. Brows are filled in with my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony and set with NYX Control Freak Brow Gel. And lastly, the lipstick worn for this look was Kate Moss' Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 107. Now hopefully I didn't leave anything out, I hope you all enjoy this look.

Current Brow Routine

Hey guys, I filmed my brow routine the other day and I felt it was only necessary to share considering this is a beauty blog. I'm not going to be starting a up a Youtube or anything but I do occasionally enjoy busting out my camera and playing. Hope you enjoy. Does anyone remember when eyebrows were just eyebrows, now they are everything.

Beauty International: Kiko

Leave a Comment

Today we are looking at some makeup not easily accessible in the U.S. because you just simply do not let your boyfriend go to another country without bringing back some goods. The lovely Chris was kind enough to pop into Kiko's while in Madrid last week before catching his flight back home. After nearly having a panic attack in the chaotic world that is makeup stores, he was able to snatch me up two lipsticks, two eyeshadows, and a mascara. The prices for everything are really comparable to drugstore prices here in Alaska. I really liked that everything came in a sleek box, very similar to MAC. 

I'm going to start with my least favorite, the Define Reflections Volume Mascara in 03 Jade Black, which is a deep jade color with small flecks of light green glitter throughout. This mascara actually looks very pretty in terms of the color and packaging, unfortunately it's a poor mascara. The formula is very wet and thin, the brush looks like it would be good but it just didn't feel as though it was grabbing on to my lashes as all. The wear had to be the worse part, this started to clump on just the second coat and it added no volume or length to my already lacking eyelashes, the color was only visible in really bright light and what really bothered me was after 20 minutes you can pinch your lashes between your fingers and they were still wet. I do not recommend this product! I am hoping over time that it will start to dry out and become useable. Next, on to the shadows, Color Sphere Eye Shadow in 14, and Infinity Eye Shadow in 283. I really like both of these, I believe 14 is a baked eyeshadow given the texture and dome shape. It's a beautiful dark grey with small silver and gold sparkle throughout, this would be a beautiful transformer shade over top other shadows, I can't wait to really dabble into this. 283 is a Dark Matte Blue and I don't really think I have shades like it. I really like the texture of this and I'm hoping to get my hands on more, I believe these click into a palette.

I think my favorite out of the entire loot had to be the lipsticks, Luscious Cream Lipstick in 522, and Ultra Glossy Stylo in 808! 522 is a deep purple, which looks more brown in the tube. This is so vampy and comfortable to wear. The only downside to this was the staining, because it is so dark and creamy, it left a blue stain on my lips that made me look kind of sick. I tried it over a lip liner and it was a much more pleasant fade. 808 is a blood orange color and as the name suggests, ultra glossy! The formula is absolutely beautiful and creamy, and very moisturizing. I would prefer this color in the summer so I can not wait. I think I'm going to try to get my hands on more of these! Now I'm just overly excited to branch out and try other beauty products from around the world.

Lorac Pro Palette 2

Leave a Comment
After Sephora got rid of Lorac I came to terms with the fact that I'd have to make orders online if I ever wanted anything from the brand, until I spotted it at Kohls! Who goes makeup shopping at Kohls. In Alaska. No one. Why would they put that there, In Alaska Khols. I don't know. So anyway, there was a huge stack of these babies and they were calling to me. Had I not seen it there, I probably would have passed on buying it. I love, love my Lorac Pro Palette but when I saw number two, the colors weren't really appealing to me, but being the makeup hoarder that I am, I grabbed it anyway, because it was there, and yeah. Let me just tell you, I am so glad that I grabbed this palette!

If you have the first Pro Palette, you know very well that the eyeshadows are buttery and pigmented, with mattes on the top row, and shimmer on the bottom. With that being said, you are able to create subtle and dramatic looks to no end. I'm not going to go too in depth with this post, because there are tons of in depth reviews on this palette already, I'm really just here to express my undying love. I know I'm going to love this palette hard this winter, and I really ended up loving all of the shades, Nectar is probably my absolute favorite, it's so perfect as a transitional shade. Honestly, if you're having trouble between Urban Decay and Lorac, which I have totally been before, I've said this before with the first palette, Lorac has my heart. If you are an aspiring makeup artist, get the Lorac Pro Palettes, the combo between mattes and shimmer give you a large variety of textures and there are lots of different shades to work with. I'll add a photo below of the original Lorac Pro Palette so you can see the comparison, same packaging just different color. Lorac, you did it again.

A Cleansing Cloth You Deserve

2 comments


I went into the Body Shop recently (really too regularly actually) to find "a couple" of things, walked out with this Luxury Flannel Facial Washcloth which was recommended by an employee. It was one of my freebies from their buy three, get two free so I wasn't really bummed at the fact that I knew this was white, and that it was going to stain! I went home, pondered at it's strange spongy material and tried it out, after using it I though I was going to end up chucking it into the trash BUT after quick rinse and ring out it was perfectly white and like new again, see before and after photos above. I was really quite shocked! This is a super soft material and really great at wiping away cleansing oils and balms. I also like to use it to heat my face with warm water before a face mask. This is $6.50 and a bargain indeed, I'm definitely going to stock up.

After use, I like to wash it out with a gentle facial wash and then hang dry it. It dries really strange, imagine money gone through the washer and dryer, it becomes really stiff and hard, and quite ugly, but it's really amazing and I've finally found my holy grail facial cloth.
