Countdown to V~DAY: Day 2 Bomb af Eyeshadow

<<Plz ignore my dollar store foundation and scary eyebrow>>
Today, I’m sharing a makeup look (yes omg I know) that I created for Valentines day. Even though I’ll be stuck at work all day, I’m still going to be rocking my V day Lula Roe’s and this bomb look.  (REAL QUICK– Go follow my blog Instagram @itsme.amieg tysm!♥)

I created this look using the Ulta Rose Gold Palette (You can get it here http://bit.ly/2ida9s0 for $20). ||Obvi, you don’t have to use this exact palette||


So I pretty much used every shade in the palette *oops* but you’re more than welcome to customize it and make it your own!♥
Any whoo, I started out by priming my eyelids with Trust Fund Beauty’s primer just to give my shadow something t stick to. First I used a fluffy blending brush and the shade “Prosecco” and applied that all over my lid. Then I used a smaller blending brush and applied the shade “Breathless” to my crease and outer corner. With this shade, you can’t really add too much so you don’t have to be as precise. Next, I used my crease brush and mixed the shades “Dessert”, “Luxe”, and “Orchid” and applied everywhere I applied “Breathless”. **The pic says Sweetheart but I meant Orchid oopss** Lastly, I took a flat angled brush and the shade “Dahlia” and applied a small amount to my outer corner and absolute inside of my outer portion of my crease. Be sure to go easy with this shade since it’s so dark.

After that, I applied my Ulta liquid liner and then went back in with “Dahlia” on the smallest brush I own to smoke out my lower lash line.

Lastly, I applied my Model Co mascara and used my Sinkdinavia Setting Spray to finish off the look!

That is pretty much the look! I just did basic foundation, contour, and highlight (a list of products I used for everything else will be at the bottom of the post).

 

Other products I used:

  • elf foundation stick in “Nude”
  • JS Skin Frost in “SO Fu**ing Gold”
  • Nyx Contour Stick
  • Ulta Beauty’s Nude Face Primer
  • elf brow kit in “Light/Medium”
  • it Cosmetics Brow Pencil
  • inspir Concealer stick

January Faves 2017 ♥

Y’all this month has been CRAZY asf! From deciding to move out to starting a blog and even starting up my bath bomb business again; I’ve had a jam packed schedule lately. I’d most definitely be a blabbering mess right now if it wasn’t for my “me time” where I take about an hour to do something I enjoy. This month I’ve found a few new things I enjoy so I thought I’d share my Faves from January!

  • Lately, I’ve been loving the e.l.f. BB cream, mainly because I’m super lazy, but also because it matches my skin tone perfectly and smells like sunscreen!
  • If you watch my videos on YouTube, you’ll know I love The Balm and I just got my Manizer sisters Trio! It’s so amazing I’d deff recommend!
  • My fave skin care item is the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Cleansing Face Wash. It keeps my skin acne free!
  • For my birthday, my boyfriend’s mom bought me 3 pair of Lula Roe Leggings and I’m in love!!! Today I’m wearing my valentines day pair ♥
  • My most used app of the month is Tumblr- you can follow me artemis-gwen or poppin-pixie-powder for my aesthetic account
  • I’ve been killing some online poker lately (no real money of course) I’ve been using the Poker King Texas Holdem app!
  • This month’s most played song is on + off by Maggie Rogers
  • My fave movie I’ve watched this month is (FINDING DORY but since I watch that every week and I’ve seen it like 53 times I’ll go with my second fave) Trolls! It’s so stinkin cute!!
  • I’ve been watching Burn Notice on Netflix a lot this month and I’m addicted♥
  • On Hulu, I’ve been binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race since it’s now “expiring” so I’ve finished season 6! (My fave queen is Adore♥)
  • This month’s fave emoji is the Pineapple bc it’s so ~artsy~🍍

 

That’s all for this month. Hopefully I’ll have more for February!♥

Dupe Day Tuesday #3

HEY GUYS! Today I’m uploading a video on YouTube so be sure to go watch that (^-^)

https://www.youtube.com/user/snug61

Anyway, today’s Dupe Day is going to feature some of my fave products! ♥

  • ColourPop is one of my favorite brands y’all don’t understand the love I have for this brand! CP’s Highlighters are the BOMB.COM no matter if they’re dupes or not! Any who, CP’s Wisp($8) is a similar dupe for Becca’s Opal($38). I do love Becca but I feel like I get a better quality from CP.♥
  • ELF has made so many dupes for higher end brands and they’re not stopping now! If you love Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop($38) then you’ll love e.l.f.’s baked eye shadow in Enchanted($3). I mean no one will know that your glow is eye shadow so it could be the perfect highlighter!
  • Wet n Wild is one of the most underrated brands. Their lippie in “sandstorm” is a perfect match for ABH’s Ashton.

 

Weekly Review: Dose Of Colors

Hey guys, sorry for missing Dupe Day Tuesday this week!!! (I know I suck) Life has been crazy this week with meal preps, classes, apartment hunting, and all the other things I fill my time with. ☺

Anyway, in all the chaos, I forgot I ordered 2 Dose Of Colors liquid lipsticks!
The ones I bought were Bare with Me and Truffle (links at the bottom ( No, I don’t make a profit from you buying them, I just love the products!)).

So, I was a little confused when I opened the boxes. The colors looked EXACTLY the same in the bottle.

But GIRL lemme tell you these were anything but the same. (unfortunately, I forgot to take a side by side pic so here’s one from doseofcolors.com )

 

I absolutely love Truffle ♥ It looks sooo good on too! Bare with me is amazing but I don’t have the badass-ness to wear nude lips out in public )):

This product does take a lil bit to dry but once it does, it’s not going anywhere!

BARE WITH ME

Hopefully, I can make it up to y’all for missing Dupe Day by doing 2 posts in one day????? ♥
