FALLing In Love With Big Curls & Purple

Happy Friday!

Who doesn’t love purple!? This color is gorgeous in any season, but there’s just something about fall that makes me fall even more in love with it. Today I want to share a look I did recently starring this beautiful color and some big curls.

I absolutely adore this look. That purple is poppin and I love big curls. Here’s the step by step on how I got the hair:

1. Apply  5 in 1 Miracle Styling Creme by Lottabody to dry stretched hair.

2. Section hair. The larger the section the larger the curl.

3. Wrap the section of hair around your index finger.

4. Remove your index finger and wrap a piece of foil around the section of hair securely.

5. Put the foiled section in between a hot flatiron. Press and hold for 10 seconds.

6. Release and repeat. When you’re done it’ll look something like this

7. Next, remove the foil from each section to reveal the curls

8. Lastly, separate and style to your liking.

I LOVE this quick and easy method to get some gorgeous curls. 

As for the purple lip, I used Be-Dazzled by ColourPop Cosmetics and for some shine I added an overlay of Purple Pop by Jordana.  The combination was life.

This entire look was so pretty and perfect for fall to me. What’s your favorite hair and lip color combination for fall?



Color Icon Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Hey luvs!

This weekend I was strolling through Walgreens as I often do, and came across some new lip pies by Wet n Wild. They are called Coloricon Matte Liquid Lipsticjs. I was instantly curious so I picked up one.  When I tried it out, I fell IN LOVE! 

So in love that I went back to Walgreens and picked up the other two colors they had. Let me introduce you to “Take It Like A Vamp”, ” “Too Tulip To Quit” and How Fleek Is Your Love”.  Lol to these names though!

Well, today I’ve got my swatch video to share with you all, but let me just tell you, these lippie are bomb! Smooth, juicy application with a perfect matte finish AND they don’t kiss off! Oh, plus they’re on $2.99!!  Go get you some. But, first check out my video here.



Going For Gray

Hi luvs,

One of my absolute favorite colors to rock, especially for fall is gray. Gray tones are super chic and classic. Not only do I love styling my outfits staring this color, I also love using this color as a statement lippie. And today I want to share my favorite gray toned lippie, Petit Four by ColorPop Cosmetics 

This is a beautiful color from ColorPop’s Ultra Satin Line. Although this color does kiss off a little the finish appears matter which I love. 

Here are a couple of different ways that I’ve paired this beautiful lippie with two of my favorite Jordana liners, Blue Devine & Plush Plum. Even though Blue Devine is an eyeliner I adore it for lips.

The application is super smooth and the finish is perfect! I love this lippie.  This color is also stunning straight up, all by itself.

If you’re looking for a gray lippie I would definitely recommend  this one. I know I’ll be reaching for it a lot this fall. 



Oh My Gloss!

Good morning beauties!

Typically when it comes to lip wear I opt for a matte finish but, when I saw the new Oh My Gloss lip colors by Rimmel I decided to try one out.  I picked up the color Pin Up at Walgreens where all of the colors are currently on sale (but 1 get 1 1/2 off). 

This color is a really pretty pink that gives a nice juicy finish. It goes on really soft and is NOT sticky, which was my biggest concern.  This color is super vibrant and screams summertime! 

So, for those days or nights I want to go a bit luscious I’ll definitely go for this product. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go pick up a few more before the sale ends!

That’s it for now!



New Brow Favorites

Good morning beauties!

Nothing puts a face on point like great brows and a bold lippie. I love trying out new brow products and lippies. Lately I’ve tried out a few new brow products and have settled on the two I’m going to talk about today as my favorites.

Here they are! Brow This Way Gel by Rimmel London and Milani Stay Put Brow Color. Both of these products are inexpensive but amazing and you can find them both at my favorite drug store, Walgreens.

I adore using these products together. Here’s my usual step by step

1. Line my brows with a brown pencil by Jordana Cosmetics 

2. Fill in my brows with the Milani Stay Put Brow Color. It’s really thick in consistency and the brush it comes with is nice and sturdy

3. Lastly I go over my brows with the Rimmel Brow This Way Product. This product goes on wet which was a bit odd for me initially but when it drys it provides such a nice finish.

Together these two products help my brows stay on point. Today’s makeup look is staring these great brow products and this bold Milani Cosmetics lippie in the color Matte Iconic



Well, that’s it for now!



Marshmallows and Wings

Happy Friday Luvs,

Today’s post is about yesterday’s glam look. It was actually pretty simple but really beautiful. At least I loved it…lol. The highlights were a wing liner using Wet n Wild MegaLiner and my new ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lippie in the color Marshmallow. If you missed my ColorPop Swatch video you can see it here. Here are some pics.

Hey luvs!

I had the pleasure of trying out a new lippie from an up and coming brand. Kerry Kosmetics has some beautiful lip colors that are super vibrant and glide on perfectly. 

I tried out the color Surise. It’s a stunning orange shade, great for the spring and summer seasons. After coming off of a long weekend spent with just me and by boys this gorgeous lipstick is helping me get my life today!


There are a total of  20 colors in this Luscious Lipstick line. To check them all out click here.




Key Lime

Hi beauties

So, for Christmas my sister gifted me some great new NYX Cosmetics Lippies. I absolutely adore there lipsticks! They have an amazing color variety. This past weekend I decided to try out one of those colors. This is the color Key Lime from the Macaron Lippie line.

I was inspired by the packaging and decided to pair it up with black.  I also added a green shadow from my bh cosmetics 120 color eyeshadow palette (2nd edition) ADORE the look. 


One thing to note. I did notice that the Macraon line is definitely more matte so the application isn’t as smooth as the colors from the Wicked Lippie line. Adding a light top coat of Vaseline helps.
