Naked Smoky Tutorial & Giveaway

Affiliate Links / Product Samples

If last week’s softer pink hued makeup and pop of red wasn’t for you, how about it’s edgier, grayer cousin? I will say, this can easily be glammed up with a red lip, and I promise you won’t get any judgement from me. (In fact, I may or may not have worn a red lip with this to my holiday brunch. I’ll never tell.) But this makeup look makes a statement all its own.

I’ve had the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette since it came out but hadn’t been feeling much like doing a cool toned smoky look until recently. Maybe now that the weather is getting chilly and it feels like winter is truly upon us that is cause for me embracing the cooler hues. Not to say I don’t love the palette (I really do, actually! It’s full of a ton of great matte and shimmer shades that I’ve really enjoyed working with. The one glitter shade, Armor, I could live without though.), it just hasn’t been getting much love as of late.

Holiday Party Looks: Outfit, Makeup, & Double Giveaway!

Affiliate Links / Product Samples

Is it Christmas yet?! While I can’t believe it’s almost here, I am ready for it. Mostly because I get to take a few days off work and hopefully catch up on some much needed sleep. Until then, I’m back with the next in my holiday party looks series! This one is probably my favorite, as because it incorporates my favorite holiday color (red), sparkles, and fringe. Pretty much all the best things in party wear, if you ask me.

Boucle, Lace, & Giveaway

Affiliate Links / Product Sample

There’s nothing quite like a little wild and crazy storm to get you in the holiday spirit. As I’m typing this, it sounds like there’s a monsoon going on outside. I’m just grateful I don’t have to go out in it… at least not for a couple of hours! While some are getting snow, we’re over here getting flooded by rain. I’m not sure which is the better option, honestly. The last time it snowed here in Seattle, we barricaded ourselves in the house until it was gone so we didn’t have to deal with the unfortunate drivers on the road. #SeattleLife

Burberry Beauty Mulberry Smokey Eye & Giveaway

Is there anything more pampering then going and getting your makeup done? Honestly, I think not. There’s something really nice about not being the one in control of your face, and I absolutely love getting my makeup done at Nordstrom because I always learn something new.

Last Monday, I stopped by after work to check out the new Burberry Beauty Counter at Nordstrom’s Flagship store in Seattle. Adam, a local makeup artist and beauty manager at Nordstrom, let me know about the new line and invited me to check it out. Being the beauty fanatic I am, I said of course!
