Clarins Sunkissed Summer 2017 Collection - Review, Swatches, and Looks

Makeup brands release collections several times per year, but I can easily say that my fave launches are holiday and summer collections.  I like holiday releases because I'm a sucker for a festive gift set, and I love summer launches because I am Team Bronzy Glow.

Clarins Sunkissed Summer 2017 Collection is exactly that - warm, golden, and everything that I love about the sunny weather.

Face of the Day - Pride 2017

Happy Pride, friends!

fotd pride 2017 too faced sugar pop palette mac  embrace me

I originally intended this look to be a rainbow eyeliner look that involved putting a rainbow of eyeshadows over a white base.  However, as the look progressed, I kept adding more and more ideas to it, and it got to the point where it looked like a total mess. So I took it all off, and whipped up this look in about 10 minutes.  Very Jem and the Holograms.

Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup in 'Fair Ivory' - Review, swatches, Before & After

Besides a good colour match, the number 1 thing I look for in a foundation is coverage.  So when I heard about how Dermablend's priority is achieving good coverage, the heavens sang.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in 'Respect the Pink' and 'Club Hopper' - Review, Swatches, and Looks

I remember when NYX came out with their first batch of shades from the Liquid Suede collection.  I HAD to get my hands on 'Sandstorm' and 'Soft Spoken'.  They were incredible!  They were smooth, creamy, pigmented, and lasted all day.

So my expectations were at an all time high for their second batch of shades.

Face of the Day - Wedding Updo

I finally know what it truly means to say "Wedding season is upon us".


I just survived 3 straight weekends in a row of baby showers and weddings, and racked up about 10 hours of combined driving to attend them all.  Even though it was a busy time, of course I had to snap a few face shots, since I was getting glammed up anyway.  This is the look that I wore to wedding #2 of 3.
