My Signature Beauty Look

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Ah, the signature beauty look. For me, that means matte light brown shadow on the eyes, nude liner on the water line, lots of mascara, a mostly matte base, bold brows, and matte red lips. Classic. Something I can wear for decades to come.

A Warm Eye Look with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

I've got another matte eyeshadow palette in my collection! I am such a huge fan of Kat Von D as a tattoo artist and as a makeup creator, so when I heard she was coming out to an eyeshadow palette "sister" to her Shade + Light contour palette, I had to get it! I scooped up the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette during the recent Sephora 15% off sale.

I Heart DC Part One: Cherry Blossom Season

Thursday, May 7, 2015

A few weeks ago, I went down to the Tidal Basin to check out the 2015 National Cherry Blossom Festival. The cherry blossom trees are one of my favorite things about DC, but the crowds are madness!

L'Oréal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Lipstick Review: Doutzen's Red + Julianne's Red

Just in time for Mother's Day, L'Oréal Paris recently came out with a new lipstick collection, the L'Oréal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds. Similar to the last Collection Exclusive release, each lipstick shade in the Pure Reds line is named after a L'Oréal celebrity spokesmodel. I picked up 400 Doutzen's Red and 401 Julianne's Red, since my skintone is most similar to Doutzen Kroes and Julianne Moore's coloring. Check them out!
