Happy Holidays & Thanksgiving Day Norcal Vlog!

Season greetings, everyone!  I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving with your friends and family!  We spent the holiday in Norcal and got in as much relaxing and eating as our tummies would allow!  Between the Norwegian quiche, brussels sprouts corn bread stuffing, caramelized onion dip,  deviled eggs, & cheesy bacon dip, I was in a food coma in no time!  One of my favorite things to do with leftover turkey is to add melted cheese, sea salt & pepper to it.  So delish!!!  May the holidays bring you lots of joy, laughter, yummy noms, & good fun.  I also hope you enjoy my Thanksgiving Day Vlog.  Have a blessed week, loves! ❤ ❤ xoxo ~Kelle

Lorac Enchanting Elegance & Refined Romance Palettes Review & GRWM

Hello, my loves!! In this video, I review and swatch Lorac’s Enchanting Elegance and Refined Romance palettes, both palettes inspired by the runway! I also do a GRWM Victorian romance type look with the Enchanting Elegance palette.

Lorac’s Enchanting Elegance Palette comes with 4 matte & 2 satin eyeshadows, 1 highlighters, & 2 blushes ( a muave blush & a pretty bright pink blush | Kelley Whilden

For this Victorian Romance look, I went with a pale skin with pop of pink cheeks look, glossy wine lips, & satin eyes. The Enchanting Elegance palette was so perfect for creating this particular makeup look.  Thanksgiving is approaching and I think it is a soft and pretty look for the holidays.

Included in the Enchanting Elegance palettes are 2 satin & 4 matte shadows, 1 highlighter, and 2 blushes. Lorac’s Refined Romance Palette comes with 4 satin and 2 matte eyeshadows, 2 highlighters, and 1 blush.   If you are more into matte eyeshadows, the Enchanting Elegance palette might be a better option for you as you do receive more matte shades with this palette.  If you are a highlighter person, the Refined Romance comes with 2 highlighters, rather than just the one highlighter included in the Enchanting Elegance palette.

The eyeshadows apply and blend beautifully with the smooth textures we know and love from Lorac.  The eyeshadow color schemes are gorgeousssss.  The Enchanted Elegance palette offers more options for smoky eye looks as compared to the Refined Romance palette.

If you are more of a natural makeup or neutrals person, the Refined Romance offers very soft and natural shade selections for soft and/or natural makeup looks.  This palette is fantastic for a one-stop daytime makeup shop!

Anastasia Cream Contour Palette Review & Contouring Tips!

Greetings!  Version 2In my latest video, I review Anastasia’s Contour Cream Kit and also give you some of my cream contouring tips.  When using cream contour products, I prefer using deep cream contour shades.  Even on fair skin tones like mine, I think deep shades can provide the most natural looking contour when sheered out onto the skin.  There are 4 contour palettes in the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit line, and in this video I review the “Deep” palette. It comes with six shades.  The top row of shades is fantastic for mixing into the darker shades in the bottom row, to achieve the perfect natural bronze shade for any eye/cheek look.  It took me three washes with soap and water to remove the swatches.img_9314 This is great news. Many powder bronzes just wipe right off.  Even without having to set the shades with a powder, the longevity of these Anastasia cream contour shades is remarkable: with over 8 hours of wear without budging!  This palette is also fantastic if you have dry skin like I do, because powders can just cause more dryness.  My favorite way to apply the shades is with my Elf stipple brush, and then blending over that with a synthetic BH Cosmetics face brush. Overall, I think what makes the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit such an outstanding palette is that the shades don’t look super creamy/sheen-y when applied, as you can see in the swatches.  They look like super pigmented bronzers with the blendability of a cream. Suitable for all skin tones too!  I haven’t found cream contour shades that provide this natural of a contour in a while!   Happy Sunday! XO ~KelleIMG_9245.jpgIMG_9253.jpgimg_9266-2

Giveaway Winner Announcement, October Favorites, & Drugstore Haul!

Happy Monday, yawls!  In this video I announce the winner of my Pacifica & Miracle Skin Transformer Giveaway!  Congratulations to Kathleen Gereg on winning the giveaway!  I am so excited for you!!  Also included in this video are my October favorites and a drugstore haul.

October Favorites!

I’ll begin by saying that I still can’t get enough of Measurable Difference’s Desert Nights palette!!! It has 3 duo chrome shades & 2 mattes in the most beautiful Fall colors!!

Measurable Difference Desert Nights Eye Palette | Holy Grail | October Favorites


The two matte shades are not as pigmented as the satin shades, however, they are still very wearable and build-able with a primer.  This might just be my favorite palette in all of life!  A great addition to the eye looks I create with this palette, is my new favorite waterline/inner eye area champagne highlight with NYX eyeshadow stick, in the shade: Yogurt!  This beautiful champagne shade pairs nicely with the duochromes.

NYX eyeshadow stick in the shade, Yogurt, makes the best waterline, inner eye area, & brow bone highlight! ❤ | October Favorites

Also in this vid, I swatch LA Colors $1 Bold Eyes palettes from my drugstore haul. These are definitely worth your buck!! Most of the shades in these palettes are blend-able and buttery.  A few of the shades that are a bit dryer than the more pigmented shades can be built up with a primer.

The LA Colors Full Exposure palette lasted throughout a day of modeling for Corona USA & some of our 80

For this eye look I used LA Colors Bold Eyes Full Exposure palette & NYX waterline pencil in the shade Yogurt

degree LA weather over the weekend! Because it has been warm, I have been rocking my Stila eye pencil, in the shade, Canary, on the upper lash line for an eye-brightening pop of color.

Also, I have been obsessed with my Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer.

It is perfect for pale Fall skin! Since I have dry skin, I have also been loving Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum & Youth Activating Facial Oil!

Ole Henricksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil & Truth Serum Collagen Booster | October Favorites


The serum & facial oil are decadent, full of Vitamin C, and make my skin brighter & hydrated. Also loving Johnson & Johnson’s Vanilla Oatmeal Baby Lotion as my daytime face & body moisturizer! It was my daily pre-makeup moisturizer throughout October, and has kept my makeup from moving throughout the day without the use of a face primer.  My favorite fragrance has been my Pacifica Dry Roll-On Indian Coconut Nectar Rich Body Oil!  I haven’t really been using it as a body hydration oil, but rather as a roll-on perfume oil lol.  It is my favorite Pacifica fragrance and smells divine!
