Long time no sea, my dears!! I am soooo sorry that it has been so long since my last post. I’ve been incredibly swamped with work and life changes that I have had zero time to blog or film. In lieu, I have been posting quick video reviews on Instagram story, if you want to follow me there. The past few months have been dedicated to months of vocal work and songwriting. Super sadly, I wasn’t able to hit up the beach most of summer. Waaaaaaaaa. A girl can dream about it, though :). Speaking of the sea, Honey Girl Organics (HGO) has just come out with a new range of face sticks, developed on the island shores of Oahu, Hawaii! They have become a staple in my daily skin routine over the last month! Made with organic beeswax (containing over 300 micronutrients!!) and gorgeous oils, they help keep my skin nourished and moisturized. They are compact and easy to throw in my travel and makeup bags for quick, no-time-to-spare kind of days. The luxe gold packaging is gorge and twists up for quick, easy and smooth application.
The HGO Protect stick keeps my face protected from hot LA rays on the days that I run outside. We are currently in the midst of October, and today is 100 degrees outside! The Protect stick contains uncoated Non-nano Zinc Oxide to filter out uv rays and heal chapped skin. It moisturizes & soothes my skin all day and doesn’t clog my pores like sunscreen generally does. SWOON. I’ve been absolutely loving the HGO Prime stick before I apply my Wet N Wild foundation. It is the most hydrating primer I have ever used. So hydrating, in fact, that if you wanted to skip a moisturizer and just apply the primer stick instead, you would be goooooood. If you have dry skin like I do, definitely give it a go!
My most used of them all is the HGO H2GO stick. Lately I have been using it at night before I apply my Honey Girl Organics Night Cream for a double dose of hydration before zzzz. H2GO is made with organic bergamot, that helps to relax facial nerves and muscles, and organic German chamomile to help soothe the skin. Also love to use it as a lip balm and toss it in my handbag for quick skin pick-me-ups throughout the day. All three of these beeswax babies make getting ready an absolute breeze for just under twenty bucks per stick. If you want to check them out, head to their site and sign up to their newsletter to get 25%off of your first order! If you try them out, I would love to hear how they are working for you! Wishing everyone a bee-you-tiful week!!
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
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.
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!

Greetings, fellow earthlings! Thank you so much to everyone who entered to win The Beatles music giveaway! Your support is amazing!!!! I used randomresult.com to select the winner…and drum roll please…..the winner is NONIE FUSS! Thanks so much for your support on my channel, hon! Enjoy the music! For those of you that really wanted to win the giveaway,
never fear, I will be doing a makeup giveaway in the next few weeks! Stay tuned for it! A big shout out goes out to Shay Cosmetics for requesting on Instagram that I do another makeup look tutorial. Your support is rockin! Thank you!! I used both drugstore and high-end products to achieve this look. The pop of color liner can be worn day or night with a gel Milani eyeshadow, in the shade Bella Cobalt, on the upper lash line. For uber color, I soaked my liner brush with face mist before dipping into the blue cobalt. To make the look more posh for night prowling, simply add some more black liner and smudge it out around the eyes! Because the blue liner shade is lighter in color than my eyes, it helped to make my eyes look bluer and brighter in sunlight. I wanted to pair the blue liner with some mod mauve-ness,
so I used Milani’s Berry Amore blush & Smashbox Soft Lights Tint. This cheeky pairing is great with Mac’s Myth lipstick. The focus of this look really was on the eyes with the rockin liner & lashes. I can never ever be without my Pacifica Dream Big mascara.
Faux falsies are a thing! What girl or boy doesn’t want the effect of false lashes, without the mess of having to apply them?!!! Also a giant shout out and thank you to Pacifica Beauty for featuring my No Brushes makeup look today on Instagram & Twitter. Love you inspiring ladies!! Also, please be sure to leave me any requests you have for future videos in a comment below! If you dig the day/night makeup look, liking the video & subscribing to my channel would be sooooo righteous! Thanks loves!! XO ~Kelle
TGIF, everyone!! I hope everyone had a beautiful week and also hope you have a rockin weekend to come! If you like comedy, then you will surely enjoy seeing me be at the devices of my fingers in the NO Makeup Brushes Challenge! Thank you to my amazing subscriber, Nonie, for suggesting that I do this fun full faced makeup look without any brushes! I loved the way the look turned out! In this video I also share with you one of my eyebrow tricks for creating a cool modeling look that I like to wear a lot. Simply drag your brow pencil a little more towards the bare area between your brows to rock your inner Elvis! Whilst applying this makeup look with my fingers, I also discovered a few cool new makeup tricks! I discovered a great new way to get super-duper smooth under-eyes. Who knew that applying the silky Wet N’ Wild banana powder from the Dulce de Leche contour palette under the eye without a brush (for the first time ever), would give the absolute smoothest finish!!! It made my under-eyes look airbrushed! Anywho, I hope you have as much fun watching this video, as I did filming it! Thanks again, Nonie, for the request! Your support is always so amazing!!! I will be announcing the winner of the Beatles music giveaway this upcoming weekend, or at the very latest, on Monday Sept 26, 2016. To enter, be sure to see my giveaway video! Good luck, everyone!!! XO ~Kelle
Happy Labor Day, my loves!! I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend! Just in case you missed my latest YouTube video, my Highlighters Only Challenge video is below! Thank you to my subscriber, Nick, for requesting this video! It was so much fun putting together this full-face-using-highlighters-only look with some of my favorite glow-potions. I didn’t have a shimmery foundation, so I made one by mixing up three of Hard Candies’ highlighters. Hysterical as a foundation, the 3-highlighter mixture is actually a great one for daily dewy glow on the high points of the face! Overall, I would most definitely say that this look isn’t meant to be a wearable look, as lots of highlights on the skin can exaggerate every nook & cranny! BUT, it does photograph great for editorial and black and white photos! Hope you guys enjoy the video! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
