Netflix’s Death Note: Reaction Video

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on the Netflix adaptation of Death Note. I watched the trailer and formed some opinions on the cast and story line. I hope you guys find this interesting! Let me know what you think in the comments!

New Hair

Happy Saturday everyone!
So February is my birthday month, (February 1st), and I decided it was a good excuse to treat myself. So I went out and got some highlights! I’ve always had black hair and wanted a change. As nice as black hair is, it’s pretty boring (at least to me). Braids and curls don’t look nearly as cute as when there’s some sort of dimension to it, so I got some highlights. My hair dresser described it as a balayage sort of highlight. Here’s the picture I used to show her what I wanted:

I know if you have black hair, lightening it is super hard. It does cost a lot, (mine was $100), but I’d rather get it done by a professional than a friend who claims they can do it. As much as I like my friends, I don’t want an amateur coming at my hair with bleach. I really recommend if you’re considering someone like that, ask them for pictures to see what they’ve done. I thought I would share my look to inspire any of my dark-haired girls who are nervous about dying their hair.

I’m super happy with the result! It’s not too much of a drastic change, but the color really makes my hairstyles look good. Even if it’s just bedhead, it looks a thousand times better. I love it so much! I hope you guys get inspired! Feel free to comment and ask any questions.

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!

Thank you for watching!

Dead Frida Kahlo Halloween Tutorial

Hello all!
I thought it would be fun to do a Frida Kahlo inspired Halloween look, so I hope you guys enjoy. My video on how I did it is below!

I already had my foundation and concealer done, so I started with my eye makeup. 

I primed my lids with the NYX White Eyeshadow Base. I used to NYX Dubai palette to create a gold look, with some burgundy that added depth. You can check out the video to see the exact colors. Then, I used a dark brown eyeshadow as a false liner, to add some smoke to the look. I also added some lashes from the Dollar Tree.


I moved onto the distinct Frida Kahlo brows. I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ebony to achieve the look. In the middle of the video, I was going to leave a little gap, but at the end, I decided to go all out and make it a unibrow. 

The next step is optional, depending if you want a haunted look, or just be a normal Frida Kahlo. If you want the haunted look, skip this step. It’s the contouring/blush part. In her pictures, Frida has a strong affinity for her blush, and contour/bronzor. So I used my Elf Blush and Bronzor duo to achieve this look, as well as adding more a pink blush with my Mac Blush in Pinch Me. 

For the haunted Frida look, you need white and black face paint. I used a cheap makeup sponge and applied the white paint to the bottom half of my face and neck. 

As I waited for it to dry, I did my hair. I did two low pigtails, then pulled each pigtail to the opposite side and secured then with a bobby pin. If you look at (time) in the video, that’s where I do the hair.

Then, I moved onto the flower “headband”. I just cut the stems off of some fake flowers from the Dollar Store and stuck then in my hair, to create a fake flower headband. It worked very well!


Back to the face, I used a small, liqud liner applicator, and created a long mouth, and added vertical lines through it. I also blacked out my nose.

And that’s about it for the look. My outfit was just a simple, black maxi dress. I added a large scarf, as my shawl, because Frida wore shawls a lot. I added some gold, dangly earrings and called it a day. 


Hope you guys enjoyed the look! Happy Halloween! 

ColourPop Lip Swatch

Hey guys!

Recently, I purchased some new Colourpop lippies and thought it would be fun to show you guys. A couple of them I already showed you guys, but I thought I would feature them again for people who haven’t seen.

Lippie Stix

Lippie Stix

I love the formula of these! I have them in the matte finishes, but unlike other mattes, they aren’t drying at all. Honestly, they have a slight shine to them, but I don’t mind. So they aren’t completely matte, but they definitely last a long time.

Ultra Matte Lipstick

Ultra Matte

I love both of these colors! Beeper is a really taupe color with purple undertones. If you want Kae, I highly recommend getting the lip liner with it, because it is really hard to apply without one. I love the color, but because it’s so dark, one mistake can make a big mess. But the color is amazing! Also the packaging is cute, because all of the products from Karrueche’s collection have gold detailing on them.

Ultra Satin Lipstick

Dopey

I only bought one of these because they were new and I wasn’t sure if I would like the formula. But it is amazing! A little bit of shine, smooth on the lips, and the color is perfect!

I hope you guys enjoyed! Feel free to ask me any questions!

OOTD: Summer Denim Dress

Hello!

Today I wanted to share my denim shirt dress. These dresses are popping up from many different stores/brands and I’m loving it! I bought mine from Forever 21, for about $30. But I’ve seen cheaper ones at Charlotte Russe and in online stores. They come in many different styles, but I opted for the long sleeved, tunic style dress.

It has a little denim “belt” that I prefer to tie in the front. Click here to see a short clip of the entire dress. My shoes were actually on sale at Sears for about $10!

I hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD!

OOTD: Tan Summer Dress

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my favorite dress with you guys! It’s is a faux suede, light brown dress. I bought it from TJ Maxx and it’s from the brand Sage. I love that it’s sleeveless and has a mock turtleneck.

I love the designs on this dress, they give a bohemian/tribal type of feel.
