IMG_0372

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I hope you all are using this as the perfect excuse to spend the day putting you first! That could be like me, which will be in a bubble bath, or on a sexy date. Regardless of your dating/marital status make this day about YOU and your loved ones!

The holiday has inspired the look I created in the photo above. I would like to say I created this look to wear for any  of your glam needs, Valentine’s Day or not! My favorite part about this look is that I used an affordable palette, YAY! The Royals palette by Bad Habit Beauty is the featured eyeshadow palette for this look. The whole color scheme is gorgeous  & dreamy ❤ See the video below for the tutorial and below are product details.

Date Night Glam

IMG_9114

Are you ready for some glam to get you ready for Valentine’s Day or even a night out with friends? The other week I created this date night look (photo above) on my YouTube channel. I really like this look and it’s pretty easy to wear even if you’re not into too much color. My tip to experiment with more rich/bold eye looks is to balance your overall look with a more neutral lip color. The lip color that I’m wearing is NARS Slow Ride. This is one of my favorites and pretty much the perfect nude (I would toss all of my others to keep this one). Also the formula for a liquid lipstick is so amazing and nothing I have compares to it. The palette I used is only $12 and compared to the colors found in the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette.

Below is the tutorial where I show you how to achieve the look. The great thing is that you can follow at your own speed and it’s like we’re doing our makeup together.

Valentine’s Day Glam

Whether you’re going out with a new boo, your main flame, or just with your girls you want to look your best for Valentine’s Day, right? Right! The key to any glam look is to enhance your inner sexy goddess personality. Some of us gals are a fierce and smoking type of sexy, it almost makes you a tad uncomfortable, but in the best way. While on the other hand, some of us are a little more the sweet type of sexy. The palette that will unleash all sorts of glam is the Lorac Unzipped Palette. It’s been the answer to unleashing my inner goddess lately. The quality, pigment, and ease of blending is GRADE A and the shade range is exactly what you need. I can go from office to bad-ass and everything in between. So, in shorter words YOU NEED THIS PALETTE!

Mauve Grunge Makeup with L’Oreal La Palette Nude 2

Hi glamazons! In my previous post I featured my latest addition to my makeup palette hoarding lol, the L’Oreal La Palette Nude 2. This palette is like a sultry, moody dream of cool tone neutrals with hints of mauve. Needless to say I think this is the sexiest color palette, it’s even the color palette of my room. So I decided to create an alluring grunge inspired makeup tutorial featuring this palette and also my ABH Artist Palette. If you don’t have these colors don’t worry, use something similar. All that matters is that you have fun and get inspired 🙂
