GRWM: Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault & What make up brushes do I use?

Today it is time for a Get Ready with Me video! In this video, I will be talking to you about my favorite makeup brushes and create a look using all 4 eyeshadow palettes from the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Vault. Being a Morphe noob, having tried just a few of their products, this is the first release by them that truly had me craving the product. Of course, this product has proven to be quite the controversial palette. All the more reason to review these palettes and put them to good use. Watch the video below to hear my thoughts! grwm get ready with me morphe & x jaclyn hill vault review swatch favorite makeup brushes

GRWM: Youtube made me buy it

When I did a get ready with me a few weeks ago, many people seemed to like it. So I decided to do another chatty one where I do a full face of makeup surrounding a certain theme. So today, I am working the Youtube Made Me Buy It tag into this look. Meaning, I will be doing a full face of makeup using products I bought because other bloggers and youtubers recommended them. In the mean time I will be chatting about the products as well and say how I feel about them at the same time.  grwm youtube made me buy it

GRWM: blue & green wearable make up look

Curious to see how I would create a quick and easy late summer make up look? We’ve been having quite the Indian summer these past few weeks and so I thought it would be fun to show you a wearable, yet colorful make up look. With a very simple base and very few face products to begin with, this make up look has you out the door in minutes. The star of the show is the Sleek Calm Before the Storm palette.

GRWM: Urban Decay Vice 4

Because I was aching to show you the Urban Decay Vice 4 palette in all its glorious action, I decided to cut to the chase and rather than give you a full review, I chose to make a Get Ready With Me video instead. Full reviews take some time and I first want to play around with the colors some more before I feel comfortable posting a review. But in the mean time I just cannot deprive you of the prettiness that is of course. So here it goes!

Get ready with me #2 (video)

Get ready with me #2 (video)

It’s October and it’s now time for fall break for many people. And so I thought what better way to start off my own fall break than with a new video? In the video below I will show you how I do my hair, my make up and last but not least what outfit I’m wearing. For close ups of the make up, I decided to put these here, as well as a full list of products used/ worn. Enjoy your Saturday!

full face

The look I’ve created is one of my staple fall looks: a darker smokey eye and a plum lip. Lately, I’ve been loving wearing grey eyeshadows and then mixing in a bit of purple or burgundy. To darken up the look, I used a black eyeliner. I went easy on the cheeks and face department to not overtake from the heavy colors on my eyes and lips. So I opted for my current favorite blush: Benefit’s Coralista. I used a bit of bronzer to lightly contour my face. For lips I went with a matte plum colored lipstick by Illamasqua. Because I wanted to add a bit of shine to keep the color from looking flat, I added a touch of the prettiest gloss ever on top. Savage Grace by Chanel is my first high end glos but I’ve been really liking it for sprucing up these darker matte lip shades.

Video: Get Ready With Me #1

Exciting times, video times! I am not too fond or good at making videos which is why I don’t do them very often. But when I saw these ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos I thought: I can do that too. So the other day I sat down and gave it a shot. Hoping I was in frame and that you could actually see what I was doing, this was also the first time I used this camera to shoot something for this blog. So that’s extra exciting. I hope you enjoy this rare treat and you can still see pictures, including my full outfit and close ups of the eye look below. Enjoy your Easter Monday!
