    Blogmas Day 15: Glam Mr. Grinch

    Breaking news, I finally lost an eyelash – not the wonky one that I wanted to lose but I was anticipating this moment for the past week. I’m actually really impressed that I’ve only lost one eyelash and I’ve had the lashes on for a week, that isn’t shabby. At this rate, I feel like I could wait it out for a 4 week fill but we’ll see if they start coming out more frequently as time passes. Also, it’s 40 degrees outside and global warming has fucked my mood – everything is melting and brown and smells like manure. I thought that we had at least a few months…

    Blogmas Day 14: Garnet Eyes

    People, the stars finally aligned and I was on Instagram just as Pixi Beauty posted that their giant Glow-Tonic would be available and I finally snagged one! I’ve literally never managed to purchase one of these coveted jumbo-bottles and I am so excited. It gets better even because it’s the holiday edition, I’m so pumped but that has nothing to do with today’s post 😛 I picked up a couple of the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows that I thought were good for the holidays. I have to say that these and the glitter shadows are kinda’ hit or miss with the quality. Some shades are super vibrant and…

    Blogmas Day 13: Vlogmas I’m Keeping Up With

    Does anyone still do Vlogmas!? I thought that this list was going to be a bit longer but then I realized that only 2-3 of the Youtubers that I consistently watch are even daily vlogging this year. I can understand that it might get a little monotonous participating each year, I share the same blog posts each year for my Blogmas but I still think it’s fun so it does bum me out. Also though, it’s generally the OG’s who post for Vlogmas and they’ve been doing it for literally years so I guess that logic doesn’t follow. Anyway, what I am even talking about? Trisha is an OG and…

    Blogmas Day 10: KVD Lolita, Let’s Talk

    Is a requirement of Blogmas that the posts need to be festive? If so, I apologize in advance for this non-festive post but it’s something that has been on my mind and I have some opinions (shocking). For some years now, Kat Von D has had a couple of products in her line in the shade Lolita. It’s a chestnut rose shade that is supposed to be universally flattering and admittedly, it’s a very lovely shade. Today, she dropped an entire collection built around the OG Lolita and I have an issue with this. Lolita conjures an image of a young, beautiful, petite tejana with a mischievous smile and big…

    Blogmas Day 9: Patrick Starrr x MAC Holiday Collection

    I was ID’d at Culver’s this evening for like a $3 custard and I’m still offended. I mean, clearly, if I was going to steal a credit card the last place that I would use it at would be a Culver’s or I would roll through and order one of everything on the menu! I know that there’s a lot of identity theft that happens during the holidays but a custard?! It wasn’t even that good, anyway – for today’s blog I have a few bits from Patrick Starrr’s final collection with MAC Cosmetics. This time last year, he released his first collection and it makes me a little sad…

    Blogmas Day 8: Slay Ride

    I may or may not have been patiently sitting in my car sipping coffee waiting for ULTA to open so that I could snag the PatrickStarrr x MAC holiday collection. I’m glad I went the day of the release though because MAC did not send a lot of stock to the ULTA locations, they only had a couple of each item. I skipped on the lipsticks because my lips have been crusty AF but there are some lovely shades in this collection. I snagged a Lip Glass, Patty Powder and both of the palettes – we are doing holiday themed looks at work and here is what I came up…

    Blogmas Day 7: Eyelash Extensions, Today Was the Day

    Here’s what happened, today was my long-anticipated eyelash extension appointment that I’ve been yakking in about for ages. Glamour – yes. Kardashians – who? Red carpet ready – always. Or, those are naturally the expectations one has when undergoing this type of beauty treatment. I have had eyelash extensions once before and I really liked them but they were just a treat for my graduation and I didn’t keep them up. The appointment was much as I anticipated, it took about 2 hours during which they cover your lower lashes with these little pads and you have to keep your eyes closed. It’s freaking hard to keep your eyes closed…

    Blogmas Day 5: Christmas Tag Part Three

    You guys, I finally did it – I am treating myself to eyelash extensions and while I have done it once before I’m still scared that my eyelashes are going to fall out! As soon as I scheduled the appointment, I started watching videos of horrific experiences because I just love doing things like that. I’m actually really stressed out about not being able to cry for 48-hours, I’m not much of a crier but watch this be the weekend that I start being one 😀 I’ll be sure to share my experience, unless I go bald then I won’t but also, I probably will. I generally enjoy most carols…

    Blogmas Day 4: Christmas Tag Part Two

    Fa-la-la-la-la-la–la–la–la! So, I am trying out this snowflake animation plugin and I don’t know if I love it or not. I’m going to try out some other designs and see if I like it better but let me know if it’s distracting – here is part two of the Christmas Tag that I started yesterday! Do my cats count 😛 Christmas hasn’t ever been that big of a deal to me, I enjoy the entire season – I like the decorations and music, it isn’t just one day for me. Which doesn’t answer the question at all but I like to be the person who makes the day special. Probably…

    Blogmas Day 2: Holiday Halo Eye

    I have to preface this post by saying that I have the smallest eyelids ever so halo eyes and cut-creases don’t translate very well on me but I gave it my best effort. Nicole Concilio posted a super simple gold holiday eye look on her channel and it looked stunning but totally wearable, I used a similar color scheme but tried to do the halo effect. For the brown tones, I used both of the quads from Patrick Starrr’s first collaboration with MAC but obviously any combination of brown shadows will work. For the gold shadow, I used the tarte chrome pot in Top Yacht  which is a bit on…
