EOTD: Romantic Eye Look- Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette!

Pretty & Romantic!

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette
Hiiii! Thanks for stopping by today! :-) I purchased the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette a while ago... and forgot. That's what happens when your a makeup addict, haha. I was feeling inspired to create a romantic mauve-y eye and this one was the perfect palette for the look!

I used the matte rose pink in my crease with the deeper reddish brown in the outer corner. I then went in with the metallic pink-purple shift shade all over my lid (love that color!). I took the metallic baby pink color next to it and applied it to my inner corners. Lastly, I used the matte cream shade as my brow bone highlight.

I'm so in love with how it came out. It's really simple but the colors look so beautiful together. I love how they make my brown eyes POP! Leave me your thoughts down below in the comments and tell me what palette will you be using for you Valentine's Day look.

EOTD: Easy Valentine's Day Eye Look Using Drugstore Products! (Wet n Wild & Maybelline!)

Simple Valentine's Day Look!

Easy Valentine's Day Eye Look Using Drugstore Products

Valentine's Day is almost here so I created some looks in preparation for the special day! Today I'm sharing a very simple Rose Gold and Burnt Red look using drugstore products. 

The palette I used is the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette in Rose in the air and it's only $4.99! It's a new item and a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette for a fraction of the cost. I love the mattes in this palette! For this look I decided to mix both of the bigger pans and buffed them into my crease. I then took the matte red/burgundy shade and deepened the outer v and also ran it underneath my lower lash-line with a pencil brush.

I wanted a beautiful metallic shade for my lid and the Wet n Wild palette didn't have what I was looking for so instead I used the NEW Maybelline FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold! This shade is stunning! It's the perfect rose gold tone and I love how foiled it looks on the lid. I finished the look off with my favorite matte liquid liner and mascara and there you have it! Super simple right? :-)

You can create this look for under $15 which is pretty amazing! Stay tuned for more looks coming soon. Make sure to share and leave me comments with your thoughts!

Review: E.L.F Cosmetics Correct & Set Under Eye Powders! (Rose and Peach!)

NEW from E.L.F!

E.L.F Cosmetics Correct & Set Under Eye Powders
Thanks for stopping by today! :-) I've been so eager to share my thoughts on the NEW E.L.F Cosmetics Correct & Set Under Eye Powders! They are only $4 each and there's 3 shades to choose from based on your skintone (rose- light tones, peach-medium tones and banana-for deep tones). They are meant to brighten the under eye while also making fine lines appear smoother and dark circles less noticeable. I tried out both rose and peach because I wasn't sure which shade would work best for me so lets get into my thoughts!

I tried out rose first and I found that it was waaaay to light for my liking! I know a lot of people really enjoy a super light under eye but I prefer something closer to my skintone. This shade would be perfect for fair to light skintones. 

The directions say to pretty much use it to "bake" your under eyes by applying a generous amount over your concealer; wait a few minutes and dust away the excess. I didn't technically go that route because it's a really tiny container so I didn't want to waste product haha. Plus, a little really goes a long way because they are pretty pigmented. I used my damp beauty blender to apply it over my concealer and instantly I noticed the brightness and how smooth the area looked! I was pretty impressed! My concealer didn't crease throughout the day and I'm so excited to report that my under eye didn't look dry one bit! I recently had some horrible experiences with other powders so that was a huge plus for me.

The peach shade is my favorite! I felt like it worked just as well and was a better match for my skintone. Above you can see the difference between rose(left) and peach(right) on my light-medium skintone. I love how it looks on the right! Me a few years ago would've rocked the super light under eye haha but now I feel like it ages me now.

Bottom line: This product is amazing! It's convenient and affordable. I love that E.L.F has options for most skintones too. This is now part of my makeup routine so definitely check it out! :-)
