Fun Purple Night Out Look

Hello everyone!

I have a fun glittery and purple look for you guys today! I felt a little burned out from work yesterday, and then I looked at my makeup and felt really creative. Creating new looks really helps lessen my stress and I love doing it!

So without further ado, here’s the look. It’s pretty simple actually. I used three different shades of purple eyeshadows, a gold liner, and a white pencil liner.

I used two palette’s, the Makeup Revolution palette and the Sweet Peach palette from Too-Face.

First, from the Makeup Revolution palette, I used the lightest shade of purple on my inner corners. Then, I took the purple shade next to it and swept it across the rest of my lids.

 

For the outer corners, I took a little of the dark purple from the Sweet Peach palette, and carefully blended that out.


I created a simple wing with my gold glitter eyeliner for NYX. Then, I finished the look off with lining my water liner with white pencil liner from NYX.


I hope you guys enjoyed this look! Thanks for reading!

Inexpensive Earrings from AliExpress

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re having a relaxing Sunday! Today I wanted to share some really cool, (and super inexpensive) earrings from AliExpress. Don’t worry, it’s not a sponsored post or anything, (I wish), just my honest review! Hope you guys enjoy and check it out!

I got these earrings from Dorado HongYe Jewelry on AliExpress. For those of you who don’t know what AliExpress is, it’s an online and app store that has a variety of different products for extremely inexpensive prices.

I paid only $1.43, (now they are $1.57), for them, which is amazing! Click here to view the page with the earrings. I thoroughly looked at all the reviews, especially the pictures some users posted. They looked very nice, so I thought, why not? It’s only about $2. So I bit the bullet and ordered them, and I completely love them!

I wasn’t sure if they would look cheap, but they look like normal fashion jewelry. The material is crystal and zinc alloy. It feels very sturdy, not like anything is going to break anytime soon. I also chose the gold detailed earrings, the other options are rose-gold and silver.

The only issue I was worried about when it would arrive. Majority of everything on the site is from China, so arrival times are expected to be at least a month or two. In the automatic note I received when I ordered, it said if I have not received the package in 45 days, to contact the seller. So I was expecting to wait a super long time.

I ordered it on February 17th and received it on March 9th. Took a little less than three weeks, which is much better than what I expected. I was thinking it would take two months.

Honestly, I think I just got lucky, because I’m waiting for a couple other packages, but this seller shipped it faster, so I received it quicker. That’s the only downside, you’re not sure when you’ll receive your products, so always order in advance!

Other than that, only buy products that have reviews. Like Ebay or Amazon, there are always sketchy shops that you need to beware of, so just use common sense and make sure it’s a legit store.

Overall, I’m extremely happy with purchase and definitely looking forward to purchasing more from this store!

Hope you guys enjoyed and leave any questions/comments! Thanks for reading!

NYX Wanderlust Dubai Palette

Hello everyone!

So around early December, I saw the NYX Wanderlust Lip and Eye Collections in Ulta, for about $10. The palettes are centered about the NYX Soft Matte Creams. I saw all of the ones named after cities, like Dubai, London, Stockholm, etc. I fell in love with the Dubai palette and had to buy it.

The eyeshadows are all great and pigmented. The purple at the top, the two below, the brown shade on the third row, and the orangy/burgundy shade at the bottom are all shimmery. The others are more of a matte finish. I like the variety of colors and that they kept the basic colors matte.

I absolutely love the Soft Matte Cream in Dubai. It’s the perfect brown shade for me. I used it in the video below.

Here’s a gold look I created on my youtube channel with this palette:

I hope you guys enjoyed! Feel free to leave any questions or comments!

DIY: Spray Paint Decor Gold

Hello everyone!

Today, I wanted to share a quick post about some decor pieces that I spray painted gold. I recently moved and want an all white room with gold touches, but things that are gold are so expensive. Obviously I don’t mean real gold, but cute decor items at Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc, are all so expensive. So I found some inexpensive items, and decided to just spray paint them a metallic gold.

If you want to see the video tutorial of the process, click here.

I bought the wooden box from Michaels for $7.99, the flowers on clearance at Michaels for $2.00, and the spray paint at Walmart for about $5. The brand of spray paint I used was Rust-Oleum and it was in the color Metallic Gold.

I know it’s a simple DIY, but I hope it inspires you guys to decorate however you want, without buying something really expensive. Why not just by it cheap, and spray paint it the exact color you wanted?

Hope you all enjoyed!

Esfolio: Gold Mask Review

Hello everyone!

I apologize for not posting a lot lately, I’ve been really busy with classes and such. But it’s time for a new mask review!

I decided to try out the Esfolio: Gold Mask that I had received from my Mask Maven subscription.

Esfolio: Gold Mask

This masks’ main ingredient is Colloidal Gold. It’s basically just tiny, nano-particles of gold. The mask says that the gold provides elasticity and purification for skin. It’s supposed to give skin a healthy glow.

Esfolio: Gold Mask

I usually feel like the majority of sheet masks feel the same, but this one really impressed me. Usually, when you put a sheet mask on, you don’t feel anything really afterwards, maybe a cooling of the skin, but that’s it. With this one, I could feel my skin actually tightening. It’s hard to explain, but I felt it working. Also, the material of the mask is different from any other I’ve tried. It’s thicker and more cloth-like, while other masks feel more like paper. After you take off the mask, you’re supposed to rub in the remaining residue.

Overall, I highly recommend this mask! It definetely did what it said it would, promote elasticity and help your skin glow. I noticed my skin wasn’t its usual “dull” self after this mask.

Let me know what you guys think and what your favorite mask is!

Thanks so much for reading!
