Greetings, dears!! In my latest video is a makeup look for tv commercial castings. If you are a model or actor, this is definitely the video for you! This commercial look is also a great look for anyone to rock on jeans & t-shirt days! The art of commercial makeup for camera and print work can be very tricky. It can also take the most time to achieve versus “louder” makeup look applications. As a model and actor for over ten years, it has taken me a longgggg time to learn that soft, “barely there” makeup look that pops on camera. When preparing for that day of castings, we don’t have makeup artists with us to make us feel confident before walking into that room full of eyes. This can sometimes be stressful and lead to the over-application of makeup, which is counter-intuitive to a natural commercial look. So when you can master a barely there commercial look that looks like you, that stands out naturally, photographs/films really well, andmakes you feel confident in that casting room….you will be unstoppable in those castings! And unstoppable in a comfy sweatshirt and jeans! Much love!! ~Kelle
Ahhhhhhh aromatherapy! It’s about that time for April favourites (in May lol). Lately I have been rather obsessed with Soap & Glory’s Smoothie Star Body Milk. It is incredibly moisturizing and smells like a dream. It is a gourmand scent with almond, honey, oats etc. I don’t find the scent to be sickening sweet, but rather, a calming sweet accord-ion of well-orchestrated notes. It layers so nicely with musks & floriental perfumes. Absolutely loveeeee it!
Another favorite is my Ibiza round hair brush. This brush beats every brush I own! A blow dry is just never quite the same if I try and blow dry my hair with my other brushes. The Ibiza grabs every strand of hair in a section with one swipe, smoothes & shines each strand, and brushes through it effortlessly. If you have long hair, this is amazing for big Bridget Bardot waves. Also great for straight hair looks. It is a blow dry and styling must!
April wouldn’t have been the same without my Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster in the shade: light to medium. It is similar in shade to my beloved butter bronzer, but has more of a glow due to its sheen. The sheen doesn’t register as glitter on the skin, but instead as a sun kissed glow. When I wear a faux tan, this is the bronzer I pair with it. As reflected in the below photos, this bronzer is very well loved :)))

My skin cleansing routine in April included a new cream cleanser I have been adoring from Lily of the Desert. I’ve been testing out several products from this line over recent months and will be mentioning a few more of my faves very soon. This gentle, aloe-based cleanser is fantastic for my dry skin peeps. It has been my go-to cleanser for a quick scrub before and after my workouts. I love that it also includes chamomile. #soothing ❤
After cleansing, my skin gets a quick daily exfoliation with Doll Face Beauty’s Clarify Tonic. I’ve mentioned this baby many times on my blog and channel. It is THAT good. The glycolic acid in this balancing tonic keeps my skin exfoliated and refreshed. I wear it once daily either right before moisturizing/pre-makeup or before bed prior to moisturizing. ❤ it!
Another skincare product that I was never without in April was my Honey Girl Organics The Lotion Face & Body moisturizer. It preps and plumps my skin for makeup and keeps it deeply moisturized all day long. Cruelty-free, organic, gluten-free & made with honey and skin-soothing luscious oils, this emollient moisturizer is the bees knees.
Lastly, but certain not leastly, is my DW Home Black Rose Oud candle. This is basically heaven on earth. The scent is rich, decadent and sooooo relaxing. This candle falls into my top 5 candles list of all time. I will be doing that blog and video someday soon :))))) Maybe it’s just me, but every once and while I will get a wiff of tobacco with the rose and oud notes. I am like a mad woman on the hunt for a perfume that smells identical to this black rose oud scent. The gold lid with black bow & black glass holder makes the presentation of this candle so classic and chic for the home or to give as a gift. A bath and bubbles would not be the same without this black rose beauty. #DIVINITY
An alien is among us in my latest Sci-Fi Makeup Look & GRWM video! This look was recently requested on my YouTube channel and was so much fun putting together for you guys! When I think of sci-fi I think of aliens and robots, so that became the inspiration for the look. I used my Urban Decay Vice palette to create the gradient smokey grey/white eye for the alien–robot effect. For the ethereal looking highlight, I used Wet N Wild’s When the Nude Strikes highlighter stick. I wanted the focus to be on the alien eyes, so I topped the look off with a nude lipstick by Wet N Wild called Blossom Out. This look turned out to be one that I loved so much that I’ve begun wearing it out at night. Hope you guys enjoy the look and video! Much love! ~Kelle

Hi loves!! This is the makeup look that I wore to my friend’s Alice In Wonderland birthday party this week! In my latest video I give you the deets on how to achieve this retro inspired editorial “Alice” look. The outfit ensemble included a black/white striped dress from 599Fashion, a diamond-shaped necklace I made with some bits and bobs I had lying around, and a pair of funky patent leather red/gold striped platform heels by Paloma Barceló.

Anyone else have the feels for Spring!!? The sunshine-y weather today is the first day in a while that actually feels like Spring might be right around the mountain! Yay! Felt as if it would be a good time to post my review of Tarte’s Tartelette In Bloom palette for you guys!
Upon opening the palette I was greeted with the wafting aroma of chocolate! Ummm major brownie points!! It smells identical to my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes! Who knew!?!!
That means that I, of course, had to give it a taste…and, yep, the shadows tasted sweet like cocoa! lol.
I love that this palette is equipped for any kind of natural eye look, as well as shadows suitable for smokey eye looks, like Leader, Activist, & Smokeshow.
A woman never knows what she’s up against, so it’s best to be prepared for ANY makeup look 🙂 This palette mos def has you covered!
Included are 3 satin shades, namely, Funny Girl, a gorgeous champagne shade…..
…..FIRECRACKER….a coppery bronze,
and Rocker, a taupe-y silver shade.
Of the three satin shades, Rocker, the taupe-y silver shade, didn’t swatch as buttery, soft, & pigmented as the other two shades. But, nonetheless, it is still pigmented, buttery, beautiful, & my fave of the satin shades :). The two matte shades, Jetsetter & Smokeshow, were the least buttery & blendable of all the shades in the palette. After using Jetsetter today in a look, it blended out to perfection, so maybe I’m just not the best swatcher! In my GRWM vid (above), Smokeshow applied a bit patchy on one of my eyes, & took a bit of work getting it blended out on the other. This makes it difficult to denote if the patchiness is from the shadow, the brush, or the primer.
Funny girl is the best champagne shade for inner eye & brow bone highlighting! I could seriously stare at all 3 of the satin shades for like ever.
This is an ideal palette for travel. It has everything you need with shades perfect for day-to-night, and also includes a giant mirror.
All in all, I LOVE this palette. I will get a ton of use out of it, and highly recommend it if you are a neutrals girl! Of all the shades, Rocker, Leader, Rebel, & Funny Girl are my faves! Hope you enjoyed this review!! Muahhhhhh!!! xoxoxo ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
