I’m reviewing something super cool today. This lipstick has been all over the Internet lately and I totally bought into the hype. The Ciate Glitter Flip lipstick is a matte liquid lipstick that transforms into a metallic, glittery lipstick by pressing your lips together. It’s innovative, something we’ve never seen before and totally cool! Check out my Ciate Glitter Flip review down below!
I’ve had the picture for this look edited and ready since my last rainbow eye makeup look, but I never got around to posting about it. Right when I posted that look, I started a retail job that unfortunately didn’t pan out. Now that I have the time again, let’s start writing again!
Today I’m sharing this Green and Glitter Underliner look. This is extremely similar to the Pink Underliner look I did back in June, but this time it’s green! Underliner is my favorite way to incorporate color into my eye makeup without looking overly done or dramatic. Check out how to get this Green and Glitter Underliner look down below!
Glittery, statement wings are my go-to look for when I want an impactful look that takes no time. For lunch with a friend I decided to go with a bright blue wing with fun yellow glitter. Find out how I got the look down below!
I never celebrated St. Patrick’s Day much, but this year, especially seeing all of the beautiful nail arts, I was inspired to create my own. This involved sponging, nail vinyls and free hand nail art, so I was definitely in for a challenge. This was surprisingly easy though! Find out how to recreate this at home below.
Today I have a HUGE nail polish haul that I’ve been collecting for a couple of weeks now. I think I have a pretty good collection here! Check out the polishes I got down below!
After wearing my 15 minute library makeup look, I realized I wanted to jazz it up a little bit. It was feeling a bit neutral and I wanted some more color – hopefully to make studying for finals less boring and headache inducing. After adding purple eyeliner, it wasn’t enough. So of course glitter was the natural answer! This ended up looking so eye-catching and colorful that I wore it three times in a row. Check out how I achieved it down below.
I followed every step in my 15 minute library makeup tutorial, but this time used a purple eyeliner to amp it up. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ransom. Unfortunately, this was discontinued, but any iridescent eyeliner would work. Blue, green or even gold would work with the glitter. Asphyxia from Urban Decay is similar. I also smudged it out under my lower lash line.
Next, with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Distortion, I applied a thick layer just to the roots of the eyeliner. I then speckled a few dots towards the edge of the smudged out liner with whatever was left on the brush. Over the purple, it started to flash different colors. What I love most about this eyeliner is that it looks differently depending on what you layer it over. This time, it flashed green, yellow, blue and purple. I love how it attracts light to my eyes. It looks like my eyeliner is glowing!
I want to try this over Junkie, also from Urban Decay. The green/blue duochrome in Junkie would make the glitter look even better.

I wanted to get back into nail art, so I decided that I would go back to a stand-by: the glitter fade. It’s easy, has lots of sparkle and it looks like you spent a lot of time on it.
Usually with glitter fades I will paint on the glitter, but I thought I would try a technique that I have never tried before.
Using makeup sponges, I created this glitter fade easily and without creating a thick nail in the process. The sponge soaks up all of the nail polish base and leaves behind the glitter. This makes the glitter go on more opaque, with less layers and less work.
What you will need:
A base polish of your choice
Latex free makeup sponge (like these)
Cleanup brush and cotton buds
- Paint your base coat and base color like you usually would. For this glitter fade, I chose Zoya Dakota. Let dry 10 minutes.
- Take your glitter polish (I chose OPI In True Stefani Fashion) and wipe it along the edge of the makeup sponge.
- Start dabbing the glitter at the edge of the nail. When there is less glitter on the sponge, start working towards the middle of the nail. This will create the fade. Repeat until you get the desired opacity.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 on each nail.
- After 10 minutes, apply top coat.
- Glitter will get around your nail, but it’s easy to clean up. After the top coat has dried, wash your hands and try to scrub around the nail. Then, apply cuticle oil. The oils will lift the glitter. Repeat this process until all of the glitter is gone.
That’s it! It’s an incredibly easy nail art that only takes a few minutes. The only thing I wish I had was a latex barrier. These barriers make cleanup easier. They’re kind of expensive (you could go the DIY route and just buy special FX latex, but that’s messy), but they make cleanup so much easier. It’s something that I want to pick up sooner than later!
