I went to the MAC store with one of my girls friends the other day and I decided I needed a new nude lipstick. I think most people either have MAC’s lipstick in Myth or have heard of it. I actually have it myself, but it is much too pale for my skintone. If I do use it it’s with another lip color just to lighten it a bit. I have a few other nude like colors but most have a pinkish undertone to them so I wanted one more neutral with a peach undertone instead. Enter MAC’s HoneyLove! I wasn’t so sure when I swatched it on my hand in the store but when I put it on after I got home I fell in love. It is exactly what I was looking for. I am having a hard time NOT wearing it everyday because I love the color.
Here is the color swatched on the back of my hand:
As you can see it is quite close to the actual color of my skin which I think is important when picking your perfect nude lip color.
Here is the color applied to my lips:
If you’re near my skintone and are looking for a new nude lippie I hope you give HoneyLove a try!
So I was feeling the need to do a makeup look last night and once I puled everything out I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was listening to music and the Katy Perry song Dark Horse came on and I remembered seeing the video and thought, that’s what I am going to do. At first I was going to do the purple look but then I could find my purple glitter. I think it’s probably in my trunk in my other makeup kit (and yes I have more than one smh, it’s a problem really). My recreation isn’t exactly the same because I did the eyeliner on the inner corner different than in the video and of course I don’t know exactly what makeup her MUA used but I think I got the colors pretty close
Hope you like my re-creation! Let me know if you’d like me to post products and I will!
I posted the picture below on my Instagram last night. I actually purchased this a while back but just haven’t had the chance to play with it yet because I have been so busy booking bridal trials that I haven’t had the chance to do anything a little more creative. I was itching for some color in my life so I thought why not try it on myself?
As you can see from the photos it is very matte. It’s quite drying on the lips which is why in the bottom part of the picture it is glossy because I added Benefit’s California Kissing (do they even make that any more?) I used only one coat of the lip mix to get this opacity and because it dries quickly it can easily be layered for a more intense blue lip look. They are very mixable so you can definitely have some fun with them. I think I will be playing with these more often!
I got two of the Rimmel Show Off colors recently as a prize from Influentser and thought I’d review them here on my blog. The two colors I got are Big Bang and Celestial.
Here are the colors swatched on the back of my hand:
Celestial and Big Bang
Here are the colors swatched on my lips:
Overall I really quite like them. They apply easily and I enjoy the applicator, which has a hole or well in the applicator that hold product so you don’t have to keep dipping into the product to get enough to apply to your lips. The applicator also makes it easy to apply the brighter colors (like Big Bang) without having to reach for a lip brush to make it precise. I did notice that with the color Celestial it tended to hangout in the lines of my lips a little bit more than Big Bang. Both lip colors stained my lips and good lasting power and dry to a semi matte finish. They do have a slight scent which reminds me sort of like artificial watermelon smell.
Have any of you tried any of these? I am tempted to pick up a few more colors!
Hey All! I hope your holiday weekend was great! It was nice having an extra day off from the office! I spent the day building blocks with my son then we went to Chuck E Cheese with his cousin and close friend! It was a great Monday for sure! But Tuesday has come along and it’s time to get back to work! I received these images (and a few more) from photographer Bob Kozma from SassyAss Photography and I couldn’t wait to share! Makeup by me of course on model Ashleigh Henry! I did the makeup, hair and styling for this shoot so I was one busy girl! Not to mention we were almost snowed in! I hope you enjoy! I’ll be posting more images from the photoshoot on my Facebook page if you’d like to see more
A quick note to say Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope everyone’s day was

Hey all! I recently became a makeup artist for Mineral Fusion cosmetics. I will be doing in-store demos, showing customers how the products work. I decided to try them on myself to get a better understanding of the product. Here is the makeup look I came up with, which I thought would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Here’s the look! I took it in a few different lights, except natural light because it’s so late! Gotta love late night posts, hence the tired eyes but I couldn’t help it! Enjoy!
