Alice In Wonderland Party Makeup Look GRWM & Vlog!

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. ¬†IMG_1826 2The 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 Barcel√≥.

In the video, I also take you with me to the party!  Was such a fun party with some rockin LA artists!! Enjoy! xoxo ~Kelle

This “Alice” look was created by using a metallic turquoise shadow by Profusion to create a kitten flick. ¬†The lip shade was an alchemy of two Wet N Wild red & pink matte lip shades.¬†

The cheek highlight was created with Physician’s Formula “Nude” eyeshadow strip palette! ¬†I’ve been using it as a highlighter a lot lately!

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette And One & Done Foundation Review & GRWM

 

Hi guys!  In my latest video I review the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette and Naked Skin One & Done Foundation.  The Naked Smoky palette is perfection!  So versatile for both day and night eye looks. IMG_3090 2.jpgIn addition to creating fierce smoky eyes with both warm & cool tones, el natural looks are also a cinch to create with the matte & warm shades.  Another great thing about this palette is that it is organized by shadow textures: 4 mattes, 4 satins, & 4 metallics, all grouped accordingly.

This handy-dandy texture arrangement makes putting the look together so fast and easy! The doubled-ended brush contains a blending brush and smudge brush. The bristles are soft and I really love this brush (a rarity for me to like the brushes included in a palette! ūüėČ

IMG_3105.jpg
The doubled-ended brush included in the Naked Smoky palette is soft with a smudger & blending brush.  ‚̧ it!!
For the smoky eye look created in my video, I used a combination of Smolder, Armor, & High (my fave metallic shade in the palette!), Password, & Combust.  The Smolder shade is a greyish-purple and my favorite shade in the palette.  Over the course of building the smokey eye in the video, Smolder made my eye color change from dark blue, to light grey, to green. What the!?!!! Makeup is magic!!!  I paired the eye look with a bright berry lip with NYX’s Butter Lipstick in the shade Thunderstorm.  Loved how the look turned out and hope you do too!  The Naked Skin One & Done Foundation is a light and gorgeous on the skin.

IMG_3069.jpg
Urban Decay One & Foundation provides the your-skin-but-better look, and the Naked Smoky palette offers options for both day & night eye looks.  Win-Win!
I could be wrong by calling it a foundation (might be considered a BB Cream?).  Either way, I love it.  It has a thin, light texture and gives my skin the your-skin-but-better look.  I found that applying it with fingers is the best way to apply it.  Applying with a brush just feathers the product away.  Also, I loved that I could build the coverage up.  The best part about this foundation is its skin care benefits.  Love that it has peptides in it!  Also, it lasted all day and night without moving, and at the very end of the day my skin felt SO soft.  No exaggeration here: no other foundation in all of my life has ever made my skin feel so soft.  This foundation/bb cream will come in super handy in the summer too!  I’ve been wearing the palette & foundation a lot since Christmas. What are your thoughts on the Smoky palette and One & Done Foundation?  I would love to hear them. Hope you enjoy this review video! Happy New Year, my loves!!  ‚̧ ‚̧ ~Kelle

Lorac Skinny Black And Love, Lust, & Lace Palettes!

In my latest review video, I cracked open my Lorac Skinny Black palette and Love, Lust, & Lace palettes!  They had been collecting dust for a long while on my review-to-do shelf.  In the video, I give you my first impressions/review (with live swatches) of both of these beautiful palettes.  The lace packaging.  So beautiful, chic, and winter-y looking.

Winter calls for a winter-y¬†looking palette like Lorac’s Love, Lust & Lace!

The Skinny black palette is very sleek as well, with a beautiful combo of 7 matte and satin shades.  The faux croc packaging is elegance.

I am not the best swatcher when it comes to left-handed swatching lol.  The Love, Lust, & Lace palette also comes with a beautiful combo of matte and satin shades.  All very wearable with great inner eye/brow bone highlight and transition shades.  Gorgeous neutrals palette with a blue pop of color.

The Skinny Black palette is everything you would need for traveling.  Very light, skinny, & compact for throwing into your makeup case. I especially love the two taupe shades.  The black is soooo pigmented and amazing for smokey liner.  Love the combo of warm and cool shades.  Perfection.

The formula in the Skinny Black is very smooth, silky, & buttery.  I have a feeling I will be using this palette on the daily!

The Lorac formula. Obsessed.  Also impressed with the combo of warm & cool shades.

November Favorites: Skincare, Highlighters, & Heat-Free Big Hair Styling Tips!

TGIF! It’s about that time for November favorites (in December lol). ¬†I went a little highlighter crazy with my favorites this time! Some days we just need a pick-me-up and highlighters do just that! ¬†I’ve loved layering my highlighters & blush over the past few weeks. ¬†I wore the layered, highlighted cheeky look I’ve been swooning for,¬†in my favorites video, so that you can see how they look on the skin (minimally) in the daytime. ¬†My absolute favorite blush right now is Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush in the shade Coffee Cake.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush, Shade: Coffee Cake | November Favorites 

There will be nooooo clouds in your coffee with this blush, let me tell ya!!! The copper, peachy sheen beautifies the skin flawlessly! ¬†I’ve been wearing it with pale skin, and also with winter self-tanned skin for castings. ¬†The bouncy, cream formula blends like a dream and dries to a subtle, glowing finish. ¬†For not-so-subtle, I just apply more lol. ¬†All skin tones can rock this copper beauty! ¬†Layered on top of this blush, I’ve been applying Wet N Wild’s Fergie Highlighter in the shade, Photo Bomb.

Then I blend Measurable Difference’s Baked Face & Body Highlighter in the shade, Copper, on top of that! ¬†This baked shade is such a soft powder and also looks great with a¬†tan!

I just loveeee the look of the coppery bouncy blush paired with the gold & copper highlighter shades from Wet N Wild & Measurable Difference, respectively. Another highlight I’ve enjoyed wearing on its own, with no other makeup products, is¬†L’Oreal’s Touch On Color Highlighter in the shade, Golden Amplifier.

This light, creamy golden highlighter is great for on the go, thanks to its compact size. If I don’t feel up for wearing makeup, I just swipe it on my cheeks and eyes and I’m good.¬†Also, gold is the perfect highlighter shade to rock on the cheekbones for the holidays! ¬†My go to winter self-tanner has been Vita Liberata’s Organic Extra Rich Self Tanning Lotion in the shade, Dark.

It gives my skin a natural, bronzed look without being too¬†tan (as we are in the midst of winter ;). ¬†I love that it is an organic formula, applies streak-free, and is a true bronze tanner without the orange tones! Also in my November favorites video is my¬†big hair don’t care, heat-free styling secret: VELCRO ConAir rollers.

ConAir Velcro rollers are my secret to BIG Bridget Bardot hair! | November Favorites

Bridget Bardot hair is VERY possible with these fuss-free & heat-free curlers. ¬†I like to wrap my wet hair in them and secure them to my noggin with bobby pins. ¬†Sleeping in them is not the most enjoyable, but it is my preferred method. ¬†I think I have just gotten used to¬†zzzzzz’g with a gigantuan velcro rainbow pinned on my head lol. ¬†After the hair has dried completely, gently remove the curlers, and helloooooo Bridget! ¬†Sometimes the hair is so big that I have to tame it down a bit with some hairspray. ¬†Total change of subject: for quick hydration for my lips, I’ve been loving my EOS balms.

img_0447
EOS balms | Flavors: Coconut Milk & Summer Fruit | November Favorites

The coconut milk ¬†(pink striped packaging) is my new favorite ūüôā ¬†Removing makeup has been easy and refreshing with Garnier’s Micellar Water (the one with the pink cap). ¬†It will remove waterproof eye makeup if you saturate your cotton pad and apply and hold it to the eye area for about a minute. ¬†Essential Oil’s Honey & Aloe Facial Mask has been giving my skin some extra hydration when it needs it. ¬†I was sold with the words honey & aloe, two great skin ingredients. ¬†It is a creamy mask that is amazing for dry skin. ¬†For extra body hydration, I have been loving Mineral Fusion’s Unscented Body Lotion. ¬†It is organic with uber-hydrating ingredients like glycerin & coconut oil, and really does¬†provide 24 hours worth of hydration! ¬†This is the perfect after-shave lotion for dry legs! ¬†I’ve even used it on my face here and there with no problemos! ¬†If you liked my November Favorites Video, please be sure to give it a like & please be sure to subscribe for more of my videos! Happy weekend, loves! ¬†Muahhhh!!! xoxo Kelle ‚̧ ‚̧ ‚̧
