FCS Halloween Soap Box Review & Giveaway!


Did I scare you?
I probably did considering it's been almost 4 months since I've last posted on my blog.
I'm sorry :(

Alas, here I am to review the new and limited edition soap box from Fortune Cookie Soap!
I got so excited when I got the news they were coming out with a Halloween collection, because 1. I love Halloween, and 2. I wanted to see what they would come up with!

They didn't disappoint.

Emma Watson Gold Leaf Makeup - Deathly Hallows Premiere

Ello there!
After being requested a long time ago, 
I'm finally getting around to putting this up!
(I recorded it like a month and a half ago...)

As the title suggests, this is the look Emma Watson wore to the premiere to the Deathly Hallows part 2.
Which marks the end of my childhood 

And as I say in the video, I did my hair to match hers as well!
Too bad it's not brown anymore!

So I hope I did her justice, because she's definitely an important person I believe!

Summer Yellow & Glitter Makeup!

Long time no blog post!
..and tutorial..
(just under 2...yes TWO, months..)
I apologize sooooo much for that,
trust me, I don't want to be one of those beauty bloggers who never do tutorials.
But in my "Where Have I Been?" video, I've told you how hectic my life was/is.
Reason in being I've just been uploading non-tutorial videos.
Little editing, and no need to write a matching post.
If you do tutorials, you know how much work they can be,
especially me, considering I talk a lot.
(Most of my videos are 30 minutes long before I edit)

But here I am!
As I said, this was initially inspired by a look Sherri Shepard wore on the View..
Lemme tell ya, she by no means had glitter liner, glitter on the lid, orange on the bottom, annddd big ass lashes.
How I got to that was all my creativity flowing!
I also want to add that I recorded this a month ago!

Without further ado, let's get on with this!

Effie Trinket Makeup Tutorial

May the odds be ever in your favor!

I seriously love this book, and the movie!
Effie would probably be one of my favorite characters, 
and I wish she was in the movie more!
I originally did the purple look,
with the lavender wig,
buttttt that didn't look so hot,
and i felt like this particular look was somewhat neglected!

I've tried to cover my brows numerous times,
but fail every time.
So hopefully, I can get the hang of it soon!

Spring Mint Makeup Tutorial

By now, I think it's pretty known that I have an obsession for mint.
Everything mint.
So of course, with Spring around,
pastel colors are in,
and I capitalized on it!
And it's definitely a more wearable Spring look, 
as opposed to my Spring Color Block tutorial,
so here we go!

Spring Color Block Makeup Tutorial - Pink and Purple

Hello, Spring!
I really wanted to record, and had a pastel purple in mind,
then my friend Sarah brought up pink, and this look flashed in my mind.
It's kind of inspired from Queen of Blending,
seeing that she's done a look or two with this technique.
The lashes on the pink/red eye, completely wanted to ruin this tutorial.
A piece of them fell off,
they didn't want to go on evenly,
glue got in my eye,
and when I was trying to fix the liner, I messed it up.
Which you'll see in a later picture.

I know it's a little cray cray,
but I have a somewhat more wearable spring look coming!
I hope you enjoy!

Sarah Michelle Gellar Ringer Makeup Recreation

I'm just going to start out by saying...
At first, I was skeptical,
but it just keeps getting better and better!
And the glamorous, gorgeous, and fashion forward Sarah Michelle Gellar totally makes it.
I couldn't imagine the show without her!
The look I recreated is a mix of the "every day" look she wears,
and the one from the gold and black party.
Also, I apologize for all of the products used!
I was trying all kinds of different things to get the right look I wanted!

I hope you guys enjoy!
Do you watch the show?
Love it? Hate it?
Let me know!

Katie Gallagher NYFW S/S 2012 Makeup Recreation

Just another "off the runway" look!
This one especially caught my attention because of all of the red!
Turns out, in the actual show, they didn't wing out the liner,
and wore bigger lashes.
I think colored lashes are totally a fun twist on what can be a neutral, everyday look.
So enjoy!

Suno NYFW S/S 2012 Makeup Recreation

Basically all is said in the video!
I wanted to recreate some NYFW looks, and found this one, and another on Temptalia.
It seems to me that the trend for this spring and summer is very glowy, natural skin, little on the eyes, and little on the lips.
All about simplicity.
Another big trend is pastels, which I LOVEEE especially mint green!
Sadly, I don't have a mint green shade :\
This look, for Suno, is very simple. 
I have no idea why the video is so long.
Under the articles, it had a makeup breakdown with products listed and such,
so I tried to match those as best as I could!
Though, I did forget about the glossy factor on the eyes!

Red Carpet Makeup - Loreal Destination Beauty Entry

So I wasn't going to enter this contest, because I thought I had no time, but I said F it, and decided to give it a go!
I've noticed a lot of vintage looks on the runway:
Neutral eyes, cat liner, and either glossy or matte red lips.
Trust me when I say this, practically everything that could've went wrong, went wrong.
My light went out, and one of the more important ones at that, I kept messing up the liner, and smudged the mascara.
And I hate the fact that I wasn't able to include what I used on my face, lips, and everything else.
So it will be listed below!
Regardless, here it is!!
And yes! I'm blonde again!
I still have pre recorded tutorials and such with brown hair,
so don't be alarmed!
Hope you guys enjoy!

Alice In Wonderland Inspired Makeup - Wearable

There's something so addicting about the Alice in Wonderland story.
Most likely the colorful, disastrous, messed up story line and visuals.
This was requested, and of course I couldn't say no!
I think the pastel/shimmeryness, yes shimmeryness, of this is perfect for spring!
Eventually, and you know me and my eventuallys, I'll get around to doing a more dramatic version of it!
Hope you enjoy it!

Glam Rocker Makeup Tutorial

So ignore the fact that it's been two weeks since I've posted a video!
I don't know how it happens, but time just flies by me,
then when I think about it,
it's already been a week!
But! As said in the video, I'm hoping I can get back in the habit!
I tried uploading this the other day, and I guess I wasn't uploading anything?
I blame Youtube.

Anyway, this was requested,
and I wanted to do something dramatic, and with my Dangerous palette,
so thus comes this look!
One for the Feminine will be soon.

I hope you like this,
and I hope that you still love me regardless of my absence!

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Photos and Swatches

The time has come for MAC to release their new Viva Glam additions.
The past two years have been Gaga herself, and Cyndi Lauper, but now the torch has been passed down to Nicki Minaj, and Ricky Martin.
With every lipstick purchased, or lip conditioner, all proceeds go towards the MAC AIDS Fund.
So by buying a gorgeous lipstick, you're helping the research in the cure for AIDS!
