Sunset Eyeshadow Makeup Look

Hello Beautiful!

This past weekend my family and I went to Marshall’s to pick up some beauty blenders for my makeup kit. I always like to browse the makeup section while I’m there to see if I find any gems.

This was my lucky day! I scored some #MORPHExJaclynHill palettes for $7.99!!! I was super stoked! I also got a few MAC lipsticks for $7.99 each.

The first Morphe palette I used was Ring the Alarm. It’s a beautiful rich red and brown, warm toned palette. Right up my alley!

I died when I saw this! It even comes with a mirror inside which is a huge plus!

Here’s a pic of the makeup look I created with it and a list of all the products at I used is below.

Red, white and blue Fourth of July/ Independence Day inspired makeup look

Hello gorgeous!

I know I’m a day behind, but I just wanted to share this fun Fourth of July inspired look. Obviously I didn’t go out with this, it was just fun to create a look to go with Independence Day! 🙂

My son also had a blast watching the fireworks at Shepherd of the Hills church. Every year they have a huge celebration and my husband and I have gone for the past 12 years. I guess you can say it’s a family tradition and it was so awesome to see my son’s face light up as the fireworks went off! Every time they burst he would scream “BOOM”! It was the cutest thing 🙂

Hope you all had a safe and happy fourth!

Till the next one, Laugh often and Love always!

Bright & Colorful | Pink & Purple makeup look | LA makeup artist

Hello beautiful!

So, I’ve been dying to get my hands on this Sugarpill Cosmetics “Sweetheart Palette” for the longest time, but haven’t gotten around to ordering it.

20130701-095022.jpg

I went into Nigel Beauty Emporium the other day and there it was! This was the only palette out of the three that they had so I got it. Plus they sell all 12 individual eyeshadows. I couldn’t wait to get home and try them out.

Let me just say, I’ve been missing out! These eyeshadows are so pigmented and lasted me all night. If you live here in Southern California you know that we just had a major heat wave and through the heat it didn’t melt off or rub away. I was very impressed!

Here’s my look using these fabulous shadows. Hope you like it.

Take care gorgeous! Till my next one Laugh often & Love always!!
