The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

Day Two of working in the MA office, and I couldn’t get this idea out of my head. So, we’re doing a get ready with me. I’m not a morning person (like at all), so I make sure my makeup routine when I have to get up and go places is real quick. If I can put it off until I’m more awake, I will and then I take more time with it. But there’s none of that on office days.​…

Inside Out Inspired Body Paint

Inside Out Inspired Body Paint

Recently, I did a body paint inspired by Inside Out. I couldn't decide which character I wanted to do, so I did them all along with circle bubbles for memories. This was done during a live stream over on Twitch. I figured I would do a lookbook of this since I love how it turned out and it's been a hot minute since I did one of these types of posts. I might do more of them in the future for each of my looks since I do these typically every Saturday.…

I Turned Myself into the Queen of Hearts

I Turned Myself into the Queen of Hearts

I let my Discord decided what makeup look I would do, and Queen of Hearts ended up winning. So, I decided to pull inspiration from a few different places for this look. Those being: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Disney's Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and the playing card for the Queen of Hearts. I think you'll find subtle nods to each version in the look. From the color palette to the lips to the roses painted red to the drawn appearance of the card. I really like how the look turned out... and of course, it gave me an excuse to put on a crown and my favorite blood-red wig.…

Squeeze of the Day (Citrus Fruit Inspired Makeup Look)

Squeeze of the Day (Citrus Fruit Inspired Makeup Look)

This week's theme for Caturday is Fruit, so I went for a citrus fruit-inspired look. I used a look by @lenaaleew as a reference for this look. I absolutely love how this turned out with the lemons, limes, and oranges. I didn't really have an outfit that went with the look, so I wanted to focus on the makeup and pulling in elements with the white and green.…

Marvel’s Scarlet Witch Body Paint

Marvel’s Scarlet Witch Body Paint

I've been really enjoying doing body painting lately or at least doing it once a week. That way I don't get burnt out. This week I turned myself into Marvel's Scarlet Witch from Wandavision. I love Wanda, she's one of my favorite characters in the MCU. I let my Discord decide who I turned myself into and I'm really glad they went with this character. The other choices were: Deadpool, Spiderman, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man. Plus, I haven't seen anyone else recreate this version of Scarlet Witch in body paint. The original? Sure. But this one? Nope. Maybe I'm wrong but I didn't see any on a quick search. I mostly was trying to get a sense of how anyone else would do the headpiece, but I couldn't find one that didn't use an actual headpiece, so I winged it. And I have to say I love how this look turned out.…

Cruelty Free Highlighter That I Basically Live In

Cruelty Free Highlighter That I Basically Live In

Regardless if I'm having a full makeup day with foundation or a half-makeup day with concealer and a few other products, if I'm wearing makeup that day I'm wearing a highlighter of some type. As I mentioned in my Fenty Beauty First Impressions, I prefer two different types of highlights depending on their placement. A subtle highlight that gives a glow from within on my forehead, cupid's bow and chin. And a blinding highlight on the top of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose. Though days where I'm only wearing concealer, I only highlight the tops of my cheeks as otherwise it will generally vanish too quickly as there's nothing underneath to hold it in place. So I have more blinding highlighters in this list then subtle ones.…

Hourglass Vanish Foundation First Impression

Hourglass Vanish Foundation First Impression

About two weeks ago, I decided instead of just using up the rest of the products that weren't cruelty-free I would donate them and give them away so I wouldn't keep using them. I could've sworn I had cruelty-free foundation, but it was only a really light coverage one that doesn't really look the best on my skin on days were I could use some more coverage. So I went to Sephora and tried out literally every fair foundation in the lightest shade since that's what I need. But they were all too dark or warm tone so I just looked like an oompa loompa. Then I remembered a video I saw both Jeffree Star and Tati did on Hourglass Vanish Foundation. …

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Review

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Review

I went through my wishlist the other day and decided to get a bunch of the more luxury items before I put myself on a more restrictive budget so I can save up to buy a lot of furniture to replace old pieces I've had since I was three. The Hourglass Ambient Lightening Palette is $62 at Sephora.…
