June is National Gay Pride month, and to celebrate I went down to New York to join my friends in watching the NYC Gay Pride Parade. Of course I was excited to support my friends and cheer on those who were marching, but I think I was most excited to do some colorful makeup. While on the weekends I like to get creative and rock some colorful makeup, rainbow eyes are just too bold for getting groceries. I created this Gay Pride makeup using Sugarpill Cosmetics, an indie brand that drag queens and bright makeup lovers alike love to use. Learn how to get my Gay Pride makeup down below!
It’s been a bit since I’ve blogged about makeup! Weekends are really the only time I get to wear the bright, colorful makeup that makes me feel most myself. Usually I opt for bright eyeliner with a subtle lip, and this look was no different. I took some inspiration from a look I did in 2012 and did a fun pink underliner look! Find out how I got this look down below.
I’ve been on a Wet n Wild kick, haven’t I? It started with the liquid lipsticks, then to the brand’s newest foundation, and now this eyeshadow palette. I was never into Wet n Wild, but after trying the ombre blushes last year, I’ve fallen head over heels for this brand. When I saw this palette in CVS, my first thought was that it looked like the Urban Decay Naked palette. My second thought was to try it out and review it for you guys! So, without further ado, check out my Wet n Wild Au Naturel Palette review down below!
After trying the NYX Total Control Drop foundation and being completely disappointed, I was a little skeptical when I saw YouTubers talk about the Wet n Wild Photo Focus foundation with as much fervor. I saw Tati rave on about it, Casey Holmes say that this is her current favorite foundation and a bunch of others praise this foundation. For only $6, there’s no way I could pass on this. Was this foundation as good as the YouTubers say it is? Read my review down below!
It’s February empties time, which means me explaining my trash! Does anyone else think this concept is weird yet oddly satisfying? Looking at all the empties I’m accumulated during the month makes me feel better about my purchasing habits. It also makes me feel accomplished that I used up an entire product. Read what I thought about all these products down below!
February was a short month but yet it lasted so long? Like, every week felt like an eternity? Usually months go by so fast, but this month went by so painstakingly slow. I guess that meant I got to try out more products! Read about my February favorites down below!
For a while, it seemed like no one on YouTube could stop talking about the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation. Almost every channel I follow would post a first impressions using this drugstore foundation. I’ve passed on it multiple times at Ulta, but after the third time, it was time to buy a bottle for myself and try it out.
I was perusing CVS (as you do) and checked out the updated Wet n Wild section. Usually I glance by the brand, but after my love for the Color Icon Ombre Blushes, I had to take another chance on the brand. When I saw that the brand released liquid lipsticks, I was skeptical. Most drugstore liquid lipsticks are notorious for not even drying matte. But these were only $4,99 a piece, so I took a chance and bought two of the Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks. Did they live up to the hype? Read my review down below!
The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is one of my ultimate favorite palettes. The colors are ones that I can use every day for any look and the colors work with my skin tone perfectly. But unfortunately I’ve hit major pan on one color and a bit of pan on another. When I saw that Urban Decay was releasing the Naked Ultimate Basics I knew I had to have it. I’ve been playing with this palette for months now, and I have some strong opinions on it (as strong as opinions on a palette could be.)

I’m not going to sugar coat it: I hate football. It’s fun to watch the Super Bowl, but I don’t care for it at all the rest of the year. Up until a few weeks ago I thought Gronk was a hockey player and never saw a photo of Tom Brady. But when the Super Bowl comes around, I get excited. I love the excitement and pressure of the game, the delicious food and of course, the funny commercials. Now that I live in New England I have to root for the Patriots, so I created this Pats-inspired Super Bowl makeup. Find out how I got it down below!
