Makeup Revolution Haul

Wow wow wow!!!!!! Talk about COLOUR!

Hey friends, long time – no blog. I won’t go into all the dirty details of my absence but we can blame a majority of it on schooling. But I’m here today because I have just a fun haul to show off and brag about! This is my Makeup Revolution haul and I’m so so so excited to have this much of it available to me. I didn’t buy this all in one sitting, but broke it up into two visits to Ulta. I haven’t touched anything here except the highlight palette and damnnnn, I am impressed.

I originally wanted the Morphe Bretman Highlighting Palette, but they didn’t have any available in store and I could only get it online. I know Morphe isn’t exactly a prestige price point, but it was $29 for six highlight shades. Hmmmm… not bad pricing, but I got this Makeup Revolution for $15 which EIGHT shades. If anyone is on beauty for a budget, this is the stuff right here. It isn’t chalky and the shades look absolutely wet on the skin. I was lucky enough to have a palette in the store available for me to swatch before I bought. I was a little iffy on it before swatching, and then I was sold.

Also, if you  notice, there are some other fun things I picked up like three eye shadow palettes. Go ahead and keep reading, and I’ll let you know all about them.

Revolution Re-Loaded Palette – Newtrals 2

$7.00

This palette right off the bat is so gorgeous. I believe that this is supposed to be an Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance dupe. These shades are to die for, and the pigmentation is there. It is blendable and…. AFFORDABLE! Fifteen eye shadows for $7.00. Can you believe it? That comes out to .46 cents a pan. The shimmer shades alone are great with a pigment brush, but put some Fix+ (or just wet it with whatever you have) and you got an even better deal than you thought. The bottom left shade is amazing and I’m such a sucker for anything Maroon.

Revolution Re-Loaded Palette – Iconic Division

$7.00

What does this palette remind you of? It’s supposed to be the closest dupe to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Yes.. that controversial one. Now I don’t know truly the quality of that one, but this one is awesome! I noticed when that this shadows have a creamy texture to them almost. They aren’t chalky feeling when you touch them, and glide smoothly. And the green shimmer shade in this palette is gorgeous.

 $15.00

So I believe this palette was a collaboration with SophDoesNails and what sold me on this was that shimmer blue and purple. Oh my goodness, that puuuurple. When I swatched it on my arm, it was SO pigmented and beautiful. I knew it would look great if I were to pack it on with a pigment brush. This palette is a little but more than the first two, but you get twenty four shades at .63 cents a pan. Not bad pricing for the great quality. I really enjoy the balance between the shimmer and mattes making good options for cute cut crease looks.

Okay, so I know this isn’t a Makeup Revolution product, but I want to share this brand with you because their facial products are perfect. I have a few things them this brand, and I unfortunately can’t find an online store for them other than Amazon, but if you live in the US, please stop by your local TJMaxx to pick this up. I paid $7 for this 8oz bottle and it is a comparable dupe to Sephora’s $30 Herbivore Rose water. It’s refreshing and it smells great. I usually wipe off all my makeup at the end of the day and spray this on as a refresher. This is a good hydrating spray for this summer heat.

Well this concludes my little fun haul. I really can’t wait to try more Makeup Revolution products, especially their eyeshadows If you guys want a YouTube review and tutorial of these palettes, go ahead and let me know! Also, thank you so much for reading and let me know know what you think of this brand and if you have tried any of their products.

Thank you guys for reading, and I hope you enjoyed my little mini haul!

Makeup Revolution Haul

Mini Ulta Haul

DSC00592

Hey everyone! I decided to go look at some makeup today at Ulta, and picked up these fun three items. I had a coupon for a good 20% off the total purchase and I used that to my advantage with the Benefit Blush Bar palette. I have the original palette from them and LOVE it so much, I had to get the second edition. Also, lashes. I am obsessed with good lashes, and I saw Kiss cosmetics came out with a new Triple-Push-Up line so of course I had to pick up a pair.

DSC00603

So first off, can we please talk about this BEAUTIFUL piece of art!!!! If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the first one, I strongly suggest you at least pick up this one. For the price of $58 for 5 FULL-SIZE Benefit Hoola Bronzer, and four FULL-SIZE blushes, it’s honestly a steal. Just one full-size is already costing you $30. That’s why I didn’t want to just buy one of them, and waited to pick up this second palette because I would sort of feel like I wasted money on just one.

The downfall of this palette is that they didn’t make this available in the Hoola Light bronzer. I feel like they should have at least released a second palette option replacing the Hoola with the Hoola Light for the fair skinned makeup lovers. In the first edition, there was the Hoola and Hoola Light which was great for makeup artists! If you are fair skinned, but really enjoy this palette, you could use the Hoola as an eye shadow. I ended up using my Hoola Light as an eye shadow base.

I’m excited to try the new added blush in this palette, which is the Gold Rush. Look at the beautiful glow just beaming up at me. It’s so beautiful! The Dandelion is the completely matte blush, but you can easily top it off with one of the more high shine ones to give it a pop. Don’t fear it if you are more tan/dark toned. It doesn’t wash me out even when worn alone. It is a beautiful matte color and can be worn either way.

If you want my opinion on that little brush – I don’t have one.

I always try to pick up a value pack of Wispies when I can get a good deal on them. They are the original beauty essential in any every day girls bag. They are light, fun, and beautiful on the eyes.

DSC00594

Whenever I pick up any ulta glam pair of lashes, I always judge their beauty by turning the case horizontally so I am able to see the volume it gives from the side. The higher it goes, the more glam it is!!! These are SO voluminous. They have three layers to them, and I like how spread the lashes are. I’m not sure if I am using the right term there, but the style of the lash placements caught my eyes! Kiss Lashes always serve when they put out their glam lashes. Their Faux-Minx collection is also one of my favorites.

Thank you guys for reading, and I hope you enjoyed my little mini haul!

Hi friends!

Today I wanted to challenge myself with some black eye shadow and I think I did okay. I wanted to add some glitter to really make it pop!!! I’m not sure what they call this because it’s a cut crease but it smokes out into a black. I stuck with one eye shadow palette which was the Sephora Pro Editorial Palette. Below are the products used and if you keep reading I will tell you how to achieve the look.

Eyes: @sephora @sephorapro Editorial palette – the pink, orange, black, white and maroon colors.
Lashes: @dodolashes in style D115 code “Tigerlily” for 💸💸💸 off!
Glitter: @nyxcosmetics loose glitter
Mascara: @wetnwild Lash Renegade Mascara
Brows: @benefitcosmetics in shade 4
Highlight: @nyxcosmetics and @bhcosmetics

  1.  Prime your eye lid with a concealer and then put on lightest eye shadow shade as in your most whitest white (1) you can find .
  2. Take a blending brush and blend the light pink (2) on your brow bone, but leave enough space under the brow to highlight.
  3. Take your orange (3) with the same blending brush, and blend on top of the pink, but leave a hint of the pink still showing.
  4. Take a hot pink (4) and blend on top of the orange with the same blending brush.
  5. Now here is the tricky part – taking the black (6) eye shadow. How I did this was this was taking a liner brush  and line out the black line.
  6. Brush out the black with more black eye shadow with a round blending eye shadow brush and make sure you blend in your black eye shadow well so you don’t have a hard line. This might take trying 2 or 3 brushes to get the right blend.
  7. Take your dark maroon (5) and blend LIGHTLY on top of the black and pink, to blend together.
  8. Cut your crease with concealer.
  9. Take white eye shadow on the inner cut crease and dab it in.
  10. Take a small flat concealer brush (this is what i feel like works best when blending in a cut crease) and take your orange (3) and pull it back towards the black. Make sure you blend the orange into the white.
  11. Now take the hot pink (4) and do the same motion, but on top of the orange.
  12. Take your maroon (5) and do the same motion, but on top of the hot pink.
  13. Take your black (6) and do the same motion, but on top of the maroon and blend into a wing.
  14. I do step 10-13 one or two more times to make the colors extra vivid.
  15. Take glitter glue ( I used NYX Glitter Glue) and dab it on the part between the maroon and black.
  16. Take hot dark pink glitter (used NYX) and dab it on gently. Make sure you give it a blended effect and not harsh lines.
  17. Now blend the hot pink eye shadow into the glitter, as well as the black eye shadow into it.
  18. Last steps are to add lashes, and smoke out your under eye with the pinks and black.
  19. D O N E!!!!!!

As you can tell, this is not an easy look and this could have probably been easier explained through a video. Maybe next time for a hard look I will create a video tutorial. What do you think?

Hope you enjoyed the look! Can’t wait to show you my next one.

Hi friends!!!! I am so happy that you guys gave me such positive feed back on my previous post. It means so much to me that I can write something on here and actually have it be relatable to others. A little update for you – since that last post, I did create two more looks that I did end up deleting a couple of days later on my Instagram. I understand that this is problematic and an issue for me that I need to stop doing. One day I will learn how to be more comfortable with my posts and not worry so much about what others think.

On the positive side of this post, I did make a new look that I am ACTUALLY proud of! Funny story about it though – I actually did not like this look and then I took photos of it and it turned out better than I thought! I used two palettes for this which was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance ($49) palette and the ColourPop Golden State of Mind ($26) palette for the cut crease. The jewels I got off Amazon for super cheap. I think it was 500 pieces for $6.

Note for you guys if you are interested in the ColourPop palette – There is no transition shades. These are all eye shadow toppers or good shimmers for a cut crease, or halo eye. And I use Fix+ by MAC with this particular palette.

This look required a lot of blending and patience. I really thought I was going to have to start over half way through, but I made it!

Here is a little eye shadow map for you :

For the inner cut crease I used :

Confessions of a Makeup Blogger

Hi friends! Today’s post is going to be a little different, so bear with me. Lately, I have been feeling off and down about my ability to apply makeup. Something inside me had lost it’s spark and this is not how I want to start off my New Year. I have been fighting some bad feelings, which is why I shied away from posting for a bit.

No one ever told me about the mental battle that you have to go through when you decide to open up publicly to the world on the Internet. It’s not something anyone can walk away from 100% without something hurtful being said about them or having something not go their way.

If you’re reading this, and you’re in the limbo of beginning a makeup blog, do not let this scare you off or away from achieving your dreams.

This is something personal I have been going through.

I am in the process of currently understanding that not everything is going to get 1,000+ likes and just because you have one or two successful  posts, it doesn’t mean that you have hit the major leagues. I have had extremely successful posts, and some not so much. It’s like once you have your first post to be huge, you expect that over and over again. That isn’t the case. You can’t always expect high standards on everything because that just isn’t life.

So, since I had been walking around with such an high expectation that was not reached continuously on my posts- my self-esteem dropped. I didn’t want to pick up my brush. I didn’t try hard enough to even complete a look. When I did finish a look and posted it, I immediately deleted it, fearing it was not good enough. I felt like I had lost my passion because I felt like no matter how hard I tried on my look, it was shrugged off by others. I know what I shouldn’t care so much about others, but my makeup is my art. I would imagine that this is how many artist may feel once or twice in their lives.

I have to understand that it is okay if not everyone likes what I post. And that I can not allow my passion to burn out because of my self doubt. It’s a learning process once you begin to blog about anything.

I can not wait for you guys to see what else I have in store for this year. I love makeup. I love to blog. And I will continue to combine both.

Thank you for reading. I truly appreciate it.
