Orange Smokey Eye and Orange Metallic Lips

It’s spring/summer outside but warm smokey eye looks will always have my heart! The beautiful colors of the Nubian 2 Palette by Juvia’s Place inspired this look! If you haven’t checked out the Nubian 2 palette already, YOU MUST. The shades are very pigmented and blend out so smoothly – perfect for a smokey eye look.

Urban Decay Betrayal Eyeshadow Dark Skin Space Buns

I’m hopping on the space buns spaceship with this look. I’ve been seeing space buns popping up EVERYWHERE so I decided to give them a try myself. I made the buns out of Model Model Peruvian Ombre hair that I found at the beauty supply. 7 “bundles” for $21, I figured I could spend my money on worse things. I’m pretty please with how these turned out! View Post

So I made a post a while back about the Morphe 35W palette, which you can read here. I’ve been loving this palette recently. It has a few bright colors but I love the variety of warm browns, oranges, and purples it has. It’s a great palette for everyday looks! You know, those type of days where you want to look glam but not too glam. This palette is great at achieving a soft, sultry look effortlessly.

Shiro Cosmetics Swatches

That’s Chess // Climbing Chaos // Constant Vigilance // Epona // Wizard Wheezes // Baker’s Boy

Finally got around to swatching some of the Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadow pigments I ordered ages ago.

If you have’t heard of Shiro Cosmetics, I highly recommend checking them out.  It’s an indie makeup brand that offers many vegan and cruelty free products.  The products are handcrafted in tiny batches and quite perfectly blends makeup/cosmetics with geeky and nerdy themes.  One of my personal favorite collections is the Seven Kingdoms collection (Game of Thrones).  There’s even a shade called “Nic Cage Raking Leaves on a Brisk October Afternoon”! They offer a VARIETY of shades, hues, and colors of eyeshadows, lip colors, and blushes so there’s something that will work for any personality and skin tone. AND, if you’re not ready to commit, THEY OFFER SAMPLE SIZES so you can test all the things your precious heart desires!! Who can say no to SAMPLES?? Not me, that’s who…
