2015 NYE Glam

NYE is the ultimate glam night of the year and gets me the most excited makeup-wise (aside from concert nights). This year I'm going for a dramatic eye and a super nude lip. Think heavy metal glitter + gloss, tons of lashes, and a swipe of sleek liner.

December Beauty Favorites

I'm dubbing this the month of the nude liquid lipstick and high impact mascara. Along with some staple base products and a few Charlotte Tilbury splurges, it was the perfect way to round out the end of the year.

The Christmas #MOTD

This year I've been super focused on gorgeous neutral lips (think Anastasia Beverly Hills Pure Hollywood, YSL #1, and all of the KVD liquid lipsticks) or dark, vampy shades. However, there's no better time than now to sport a bit of sparkle and a bold red lip. Nothing beats a classic red Chanel lipstick with a glowing/sparkling look for Christmas.

The Battle of the High End Mascaras

For the longest time I've been 100% loyal to my drugstore mascaras (nothing beats a Maybelline in my book); however I recently decided to dip my toe into the high end waters. Since my drugstore brands can prove to be rather hard to get off, I wanted to give my lashes a break. I've found that high end mascaras are just as long-lasting but not quite as stubborn to remove.

The Edit | Current Everyday Makeup

With a hectic pre-holiday schedule the past few weeks I've been relying on an easy, yet glowy look to get me meeting ready each day. I've been skipping my standard liner and opting for intense black lashes instead, creating a base that is glowing yet long-lasting, and grabbing the best liquid lipstick I've owned in ages.

Just Landed | New Product Launches

There have been quite a few new launches lately and each of them equally exciting. With the holidays right around the corner I thought it would be the perfect time to round up some of them incase you are looking for a few extra things to add to your wish list or pick up for someone else!

The Charlotte Tilbury Roundup

Over the past year I've been slowing adding to my Charlotte Tilbury stash. Her products aren't super easy to find here (ordering through Nordstrom is really the easiest method) so I've been picking up things here and there - which is probably better for my bank account! However during our trip to LA we finally visited an actual counter and I couldn't resist adding a few new items to my collection. I was fairly well behaved and only picked up two pieces even though I wanted to do more damage.

The Season Of Somerville

My first introduction to the Kate Somerville brand was through the ExfoliKate and I immediately fell in love. I then quickly added the True Lash & Goat Milk Moisturizer to my stash. When a gorgeous blue box landed on my doorstep filled with Kate Somerville favorites I was more than excited.

The Los Angeles Photo Diary

I left Los Angeles Sunday morning feeling refreshed, relaxed, happy, and with a little sand in my shoes. I can safely say it's the first vacation I've had in a long time that didn't leave me exhausted, ready for my own bed, and needing another vacation. It's almost like they pump something into the air out there that left us feeling so happy and content.

Currently Loving | Tumblr Inspired Accessories

In the past few months I've become seriously addicted to Tumblr. It's my favorite creative outlet - the best place to find inspiration, zero pressure (unlike Instagram or another site where I'm uploading content), and the best place to head when I need a bit of a mental break from everything else. That being said I can't help but find myself adding things to my shopping cart that are directly influenced from the images I reblog. I'm lookin' at you Adidas Superstars & over the knee boots...

With the holiday's just around the corner, I decided it was the perfect time to pull together a little guide of my favorite luxury items that would make the perfect presents for any beauty lover in your life (or for yourself).

November Beauty Favorites

Another month down and another month closer to 2016 - how crazy! Keeping on trend with this month's love of palettes, I had to include a few in this favorites. It's also the time of year to up the shimmer (in both highlight form and eyeshadow form) so I've thrown in my favorites for that as well!
