POP OF BLUE | SPRING MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Wednesday, February 3, 2016



Hey beauties! How are y'all enjoying the start of February so far? I'm excited for Valentines Day, but I am so ready for spring! I'm excited for warmer weather and fun colors. I'm going to LA next week, and I can't wait to get inspiration. A big trend that is coming back this spring, that we've seen many years on repeat is BLUE EYESHADOW. Yes! I love a good blue. You can wear the trend so many ways, but the easiest and most wearable way is just to do a pop of blue on the lower lash line with a neutral look. Today I created this fun look using some new Makeup Geek shadows, and I through in a little duo chromo purple to add a fun twist. I hope this look inspires you to play with some color! Enjoy the tutorial!

Dollup Beauty Makeup Case/Palette Review!

Tuesday, February 2, 2016



DOLLUP CASE MAKEUP ORGANIZER + MAGNETIC MAKEUP PALETTE | REVIEW


Hey guys! Today I'm going to talking about a really cool makeup palette/organizer- the DOLLUP CASE MAKEUP ORGANIZER + MAGNETIC MAKEUP PALETTE! I recently started following Dollup on Instagram and I thought these makeup palettes were so cool. They are like a Z-Palette, but look like a clutch, plus have a built in mirror and place to store brushes/pencil products. It was designed by­­­ makeup artist Nikki Hynek, she wanted to create the perfect way to house your entire beauty look in one gorgeous place while keeping you and your makeup stylishly organized at home or on-the-road.  The hard case design protects and secures your daily essentials—no more dirty or broken cosmetics—while a convenient hinge feature allows the case to open flat for easy access to all your makeup.  A customizable naked magnetic palette, elastic holding bands and an interior drop-down vanity mirror completes this perfect portable vanity for everything you need to dollup, touch-up and go!

Now, I want to mention this is a palette I would probably take to touch up with or on a short trip. If I needed to pack a large amount of makeup, I'd probably have to take another makeup bag. But! This is so cool for a night out because it can double as a clutch! It comes in 5 different colors, here I have Mintea Blue. Here's a look inside mine! I put together a little palette with some Mac eyeshadow pans, and a couple of Tarte blushes (did you know the blush pans pop out for palettes like this? good job Tarte! haha)








Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you try out a Dollup Case!
