FOTD: earth tone eyes

Hi Everyone!
Two days ago I broke out my new, Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow from MAC's To The Beach Collection (TTBC). I must say, I love this color! It is fun, vibrant, and different from my mostly brown eyeshadow collection. I did use browns on the outer corner and crease to tone down the look a bit....

Here's what I used for the eyes:

  • MAC Painterly paint pot
  • MAC Sweet & Punchy TTBC eyeshadow
  • Bobbi Brown Copper Sand shimmer wash eyeshadow
  • BB Copper Cocoa shimmer wash eyeshadow
  • BB Walnut creamy eye pencil
  • MAC Float On By TTBC eye khol

Hope you like this different look for the eyes. This is definitely not something I would wear everyday, but it is a fun look to spruce up a plain outfit. 

What's something new you are trying?

Traveling Makeup

HELP! Ladies (And Gentlemen) how do you travel with your makeup? I am going on vacation for a week and will be flying... what are your essentials? what do you take in your 3-1-1 baggie? do you check a bag or just do carry-on?

FOTD and Mascara Love!

Hi Everyone!
It's a humid Saturday here! Hope you are all enjoying the weather and using sunscreen!

Notice the extra baby curls and frizz? That's the humidity talking.. haha! *Also note, this is after wearing my makeup for 6 hours and going for a walk in the crazy heat!* Anyway, here's my face of the day! I am wearing:

Murad Oil Control Mattifer with SPF 15, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Warm Radiance (Sephora 100 point perk), MUFE HD Powder, Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer, BB long-wear cream shadow in Moonstone, BB creamy eye pencil in Caviar, NARS Laguna Bronzer, MAC msf in Smooth Merge, BB powder blush in Slopes, Dior Extase Mascara for length and MAC Opulash for thickening! (I also used NARS lipgloss in Chihuahua, but I didn't but it back on before taking this picture)

I'm just going to say I loved the end result on this look!  I thought it had the right amount of sparkle, great blush color, and I looked like I was wearing false lashes! Just look at this close up of my eyes:
 I mean, WOWZA!!! I loved the way these two mascaras worked together!

Also, you probably can't see the Moonstone color very well because I had to use my computer to take the picture since my camera is dead. I am loving Bobbi's new summer beach club collection! You should check it out!

What are you currently wearing? Anyone using two mascaras to thicken and lengthen like I am? Have you tried Opulash or Bobbi's Beach Club yet?

Sephora by OPI-Gold Nails

Last week when I went to the mall with my mom, I picked up a few things from Sephora. I have been using OPI a lot, and figured why not give the Sephora by OPI a chance. So I picked up two golds, one is a metallic called "Charge It!" and the other is a glitter called "Only Gold For Me"

This picture doesn't do them justice... They look really nice in person! I used two coats of Charge It and topped it off with about 3 coats of Only Gold For Me. I did place the glitter in some places that I missed, but overall I think the finished look came out great. Check it out:

(ps-both pictures were taken with a flash)

I think this are going to be hot for summer! What are you summer nail polish pairings?
