Makeup Revolution and ColourPop

Now that I have my office/vanity room set up, I’ve been able to organize everything so it’s super accessible. Over the weekend I had to venture out for lunch in San Francisco and decided to play around with my new Makeup Revolution Affirmation palette. Super affordable, the colors are quite pigmented and who doesn’t love 32 shadows for $15. The look pictured below includes the affirmation palette, as well as ColourPop’s liquid matte lipstick in the color Trap. Read below to see how I got this look. If you’ve created a similar look, please let me know! I’d love to see it.

  • Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay (placed on lid up to brow bone)
  • Affirmation Eyeshadow palette by Makeup Revolution (see image for step-by-step placement of color)
    1. Using a clean eyeshadow brush, place color A on lid up to brow bone.
    2. Using a clean blending brush, place color B in the crease, blending in windshield wiper motions. Blend color B into the outer “V” of the eye, placing a little on the outer corner of the eyelid.
    3. Using the same eyeshadow brush you used to apply color A, apply color C on the eyelid, covering any empty spots with color C. Apply color C on inner corners.
    4. If necessary, apply color B into the crease again to deepen the color.
    5. Using a clean fluffy blending brush, blend crease out so lines aren’t as harsh.
    6. Using either a clean eyeshadow brush or an eyeliner brush, apply color D to brow bone (under eyebrow) to highlight.

Work Party Makeup

This week, I’ve been representing the magazine I work for a lot, and tonight is no exception. We have a work-related function after working hours, so I thought I’d keep it professional, yet fun for the event tonight. Here’s the look and check out the details below the photos.

I officially am in love with that Too Faced Candlelight Glow highlighting powder and will be using it every down from now on. Do you like this look? Let me know!

Professional Glam Look

Today I am heading back to my alma mater, San Francisco State University, to help judge magazine ideas for a contemporary magazines class (my full time job is the digital media manager for Marin Magazine in Sausalito, CA). That being said, I decided to do a full face of makeup today since I will be out representing the magazine. Why do I call it “professional glam”? Because the gold layer of eyeshadow has glitter galore in it. Subtle enough for the workplace, but glamorous enough to up your every day makeup game. I used a variety of products that I will list below. Here are a couple snaps of my look:

So that’s my look! I received my latest Too Faced order yesterday and will be writing a post about those products soon, as well as my before and after series with the solid beautycleanser I purchased from Sephora.

I hope you like this look!

La Matte Lipstick from Too Faced

As you can tell by my latest posts, I am really loving matte lipsticks right now. Before I even purchased my latest Melted Matte lipsticks, I had purchased a couple La Matte lipsticks from Too Faced. Today’s photo features the color Sorry, Not Sorry. I love the way this feels on my lips. It keeps them moisturized and they don’t crack throughout the day.

I’ll re-share my base makeup products with you too:
