Can We Dupe it? Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette

Can We Dupe it? Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette

At the beginning of 2020, Jeffree Star announced that the Alien Palette, which has been out of stock for some time will no longer be coming back. Since this is one of my favorite palettes even though I broke it when I took it out of the original packaging, I was debating on getting a second which now will no longer be happening. So, I thought I would bring back this series and see if I can come up with some dupes for my favorite shades in that palette.…

3 Looks 1 Palette: Ace Beaute Vintage Dawn Palette

3 Looks 1 Palette: Ace Beaute Vintage Dawn Palette

Since I have already reviewed the formula of two palettes from Ace Beaute, I figured I do something different with the next palette which is the Vintage Dawn palette by doing three different looks using only this palette. This palette was released with the Scarlet Dusk palette, but unlike that palette this one isn't as monotoned. However, it does include 12 shadows that were inspired by sunrises around the world (though I'm not sure what sunrises have green not that I'm complaining as I love the shade) for $34.99.…

Watercolor Inspired Makeup Look

So I had to do my own take on it, I know she was inspired by another artist however I was unable to find the original painting as it appears their account was deleted otherwise I would totally link you to that painting as well.v…

Pantone Color of the Year (2020): Classic Blue Inspired Eyeshadow Look

Pantone Color of the Year (2020): Classic Blue Inspired Eyeshadow Look

Pantone has announced the Color of the Year 2020, it's Classic Blue (19-4052) and I thought it would be fun to do this again. Last year, I did it when the Color of the Year (2019) was Living Coral. So I thought I would do something similar again, though this time instead of a creative makeup look based off the color, I'm just going to use it as the base for my regular eyeshadow look.…

Tangled in Lights Makeup Look

Tangled in Lights Makeup Look

I don't have a big tree to decorate this year though I did help my mom with hers. And hers isn't the same color palette that I would go for. Granted this look isn't that either unless you count the rainbow icicle string of lights that I have on my balcony for the season. Since we're in the midst of Blogmas, I thought I would try my best at a recreation of this tangled up in Christmas lights look by Abbey Strohmeyer (and inspired by Sandra on Instagram). Check out their versions of this look as both are incredible.…

Rainbow Splatter Skull | Vanessa Davis & James Charles Inspired Makeup Look

Rainbow Splatter Skull | Vanessa Davis & James Charles Inspired Makeup Look

I was really inspired by this look James Charles and Vanessa Davis did for the "launch" of the Morphe x James Charles mini palette. Which is basically the same palette just smaller. I got the original palette when it launched, moved and had to part ways with it due to size, then regretted that and my sister repurchased it for me as a moving in present (my sister comes up with a million reasons to get me makeup, I generally don't ask her to but if I mention a palette looks cool and I can't afford it, suddenly she surprises me with it. She's the best, I love her to death). However, I recently got the Norvina Collection Volumes 1-3 and decided to use those instead to create my own version of this look.…

5 Eyeshadow Palettes I Reach for the Most at the Moment

5 Eyeshadow Palettes I Reach for the Most at the Moment

Summer is in full swing and I've been living for a mixture of colorful and warm toned neutral makeup. I haven't done a lot of non-makeup review or looks type posts in a long time, and since I want to mix things up I thought I would share palettes that I've been reaching for the most within the last few weeks since summer started. These are by no means the only palettes I'm using but just the ones I've used the most.…
