Day to Evening Makeup: Metallics


Hey, Everyone!

For this weeks makeup look, I wanted to create a neutral metallic eye that is day to evening friendly! 
I've been really inspired by all of the gorgeous metallic shadows that I've been seeing all over the place. Rich coppers and golds, with lots of shimmer and dimension.
The look I came up with is super easy, versatile, and wearable.
I added a flirty pair of lashes, a glossy metallic lip, and I think it turned out awesome ♥

I used the E.L.F Baked Eyeshadow palette in "Texas", which is packed full of sexy metallics, and each shadow is so complimentary of the other, you can create a ton of gorgeous combos 😍

I hope you like the look 💖

Holiday Makeup: Emerald Green Smoky Eyes

Hey, Everyone!

It's been quite a while since I've done a post, and all I can say is that LIFE got in the way!  It's been an adventure, but I'm BACK! So for all of my super loyal friends that stop by and visit, THANK YOU!  I sincerely appreciate your kindness, support, and encouragement ♥

With that being said, for today's makeup look I created a Holiday look. Anyone got a Holiday event that you may or may not want to go to?? Work party, family gathering, or tree decorating at the in-laws?  Or maybe it's something more fun, like a night out with the girls, or a date night?  Well regardless, I have a really simple and eye-catching makeup look that is festive for any event this time of year!

I went back to my roots on this one and used the ORIGINAL Too Faced Smoky palette to create this, and man do I love this collection.  It is so easy to use, and I have so many happy memories with this little friend ♥
Anyway! On to the look.

I hope you like it!
