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.

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!

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!

Giveaway Announcement & Day/Night Makeup Look!

IMG_7279.jpgGreetings, fellow earthlings! Thank you so much to everyone who entered to win The Beatles music giveaway! Your support is amazing!!!!

For those of you that really wanted to win the giveaway,

Pop of Milani’s Bella Cobalt gel eyeshadow for liner, a mauve cheek & nude lip makes a great day-to-night look!

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 InstagramTwitter. 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

This makeup look was achieved without any makeup brushes! | Lashes: Pacifica Dream Big Mascara, Lips: NYX Butter Lipstick, Shade: Thunderstorm, Brows: Rimmel Scandal Eyes, Shade: Taupe

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

 

 

 

Day or Night Drugstore Makeup Look | GRWM

Okay guys, as requested here is a GRWM vid of one of my all-time favorite drugstore makeup looks, as well as my current hair routine.  I like to wear this makeup look lightly for daytime and amped up at night.  Also love wearing this look without mascara sometimes. How in TARNATION this vid is 35 min long is beyond me! lol.  I also had a few flubs with my mascara that I ended up just turning into a smokier liner for night.

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette | Any look can be created with this palette!  

The Wet N Wild duochrome shadow in the Comfort Zone palette is what really makes this look. This palette has been a holy grail for eons!  My go-to is pairing it with a peachy cheek, as the tones work nicely together. For day, I normally wear a natural gloss on my lips with this look, but for night, I mixed the Milani’s “Nude Creme” & Wet N Wild’s “Within These Adobe Walls” lipstick shades to finish the makeup look. For my hair, I added

Pacifica Hairvana Leave-In Conditioner

Pacifica’s Hairvana Leave-In Conditioner and Native Flower hair Oil to give it some body and sheen while it air dried during the video.  Pacifica haircare products have uber nourishing ingredients for my course hair.  I especially love Hairvana’s coconut scent!  My hair dries in lightning speed, so I almost neva blow dry it.  I just twist it, & wrap it into a low bun, and then remove bun for heat-free waves. Hope you guys enjoy this look!  Please be sure to like & subscribe to my channel for more beauty, fashion, & style videos! :_))))) XO ~Kelle

March Favorites!

Alas, March favorites!!  Better late than never, right!?! In this video I share my favorite products over the month of March.  I was blessed to meet some amazing brands at the Natural Products Expo a few weeks ago.  The rest of the photos will be up soon, I promise!! A few of the brands made it into my March faves vid.  Must say that I cannot get enough of Pacifica’s Dream Big mascara!

Pacifica Dream Big Mascara | March Favorites

It doesn’t clump after 2-3 coats and makes my lashes super long!  I have also been lovvvvvvvving the illuminating primer by Mineral Fusion (wearing it in my faves vid).

I wore the Mineral Fusion Illuminating Primer in my March Faves vid & it held up amazingly in 90 degree heat!

It reminds me a lot of the Smashbox and Bare Minerals “slippy” primers, that I adore! Mineral Fusion’s Illuminating primer is made with 24 carat gold flakes to help calm the skin.

This primer applies like a dream and smells like citrus.  A tiny dot of this primer, goes a very long way.  Can’t get enough of it!!  Also I have been loving the Lilac Skin Softening Witch Hazel by Humphrey’s.

IMG_9636.JPG
Humphrey’s Lilac Skin Softening Witch Hazel | March Favorites

I think it’s fantastic that Humphrey’s offers several kinds of witch hazel to choose from, depending on your individual skin’s needs. The Lilac version is hands down my favorite because of its skin softening quality & refreshing scent.  I’ll do a more in depth post on the benefits of witch hazel very soon.  If you have oily skin, the Citrus Oil Control is also fantastic!  I’ve used it a few times because my skin can get oily depending on how much makeup I am wearing.  Another super fave is my David’s toothpaste!!  It’s the best natural toothpaste I have ever used and let’s face it…the aesthetics of it’s recyclable metal package is so gorgeous!  It also comes with a metal bar that you slide onto the bottom so that you can twist out every drop of toothpaste.  LOVE THAT!! Sulfate free, this natural toothpaste leaves your mouth tasting so fresh and so clean, clean!! 🙂

IMG_9804
David’s Natural Toothpaste is the best natural toothpaste I have ever used!

Another fave is the Caldrea body oil in the scent No. 1 Aloe Water Apricot.  It is a beautiful oil that keeps your skin super hydrated.  It has lovely light notes of spring and apricot.  So yummmmmy!!!!
