Get Ready With Me: Feeling Springy.

Spring is in the air and I'm so happy the season is finally here! I filmed a Get Ready With Me video featuring the Lorac Unzipped Gold eyeshadow palette. The palette retails for $42 and features 10 highly pigmented eyeshadows. It's definitely going to be a must-have product for me during the Spring and Summer seasons.



Be sure to watch the video to see how I achieved this quick Spring makeup look!

DIY: $10 & Under Makeup Brush Holder.

I am currently working on changing and re-organizing my makeup collection and set up. My first project was to re-do and organize my makeup brushes. I could easily go out and buy some new makeup brush holders, but I thought it would be a lot more fun to customize some myself. Be sure to keep reading to see how to create this inexpensive but very cute makeup brush holder!

DIY: $10 & Under Makeup Brush Holder
Materials You Will Need:
Your choice of container
Decorative Fillers
Your choice of decoration(s)
A pair of scissors

Most of these items can be found at your local arts and craft stores. I decided to use a glass vase I found at the Dollar Tree to hold my makeup brushes. There are an assortment of sizes available and they're only $1 each! The rest of the items shown were purchased at my local Michaels. Michaels is always offering a 20% off, 40% off, or even a 50% off coupon.

Depending on your decoration of choice you may need a few more supplies like glue, a glue gun, or a sewing needle. My decoration of choice is an adhesive trim, which only requires the use of scissors.

I purchased this adhesive trim from Michaels. It retails for $1.50 and there are a range of colors.

Here is a close of the blinged out adhesive trim.

You're going to want to measure your adhesive trim around your container and cut where necessary.
Then you will carefully place it in your designated spot on your container.

I decided to place mine around the rim of the glass vase.

I then thought it would be cuter to add a little bit of bling towards the bottom as well.

Now it's time to add in your decorative fillers and your makeup brushes!

This is the final results of my makeup brush holder. I really loved how it turned out.

Everything costed me less than $10 total and it takes less than 5 minutes to do. If you decide to recreate my makeup brush holder then please do share it with me! I would love to see how yours turned out.

How do you store your makeup brushes?

Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette - Milano Collections.

Wet n Wild and the Wet n Wild Fergie line released a range of new products and shades for 2015. You can expect to see swatches and reviews of those new products on my blog or Youtube channel. I have been trying out a few of the products and I am loving them so far! The first product I decided to share is a current favorite of mine and will definitely be a must-have product to own.

The Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection introduced two new eyeshadow palettes: Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palettes. There is a smokey eyeshadow palette and a neutral eyeshadow palette. Each palette includes 10 eyeshadows and a dual brush applicator. Today I am sharing the Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections, which is the neutral palette.

Wet n Wild Fergie Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections

Description: When you've always got a camera pointed at you, every side has to be your best side! This incredible palette of intensely-pigmented shadows comes in a range of textures from translucent highlights to subtle mattes, to shimmering glitters - all of which the camera loves. Its satiny-smooth formula is nylon-treated and jet-milled for ultra-pigmented, crease resistant color that lasts all day so you'll always be studio-ready. Cameras out!

Retail Price: $7.99

Available: Walgreens Exclusive



This eyeshadow palettes feature 10 eyeshadows. I love that this palette has a range of eyeshadow finishes. There are 2 satin eyeshadows with subtle shimmer, 5 shimmery eyeshadows, and 3 matte eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow is nicely pigmented. I was really impressed with the pigmentation!

The packaging is nice and compact. It doesn't take up as much space as other eyeshadow palettes I own. This makes it a lot more easier to store and organize. The size of the palette also makes it travel friendly.

Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial: Flirty Pink.

Valentine's Day is tomorrow, so I wanted to film a makeup tutorial inspired for the holiday! This makeup tutorial features an eyeshadow look with neutral tones and hints of pink. Adding some glitter or a shimmery pink eyehadow in the tear duct or on the lid will make the look a bit more fun. You can also opt for a bolder pink or red lip color than what I decided to use for this look.
