Beauty Mix: Plum Eye Makeup

Welcome back to this weeks Beauty Mix with Ashleigh and I. This week for the Beauty Mix is all about the plum colors. What a perfect shade for fall. For the Beauty Mix: Plum I decided to use two of the Tarte Cosmetics palette; Energy Noir and Tartelette Amazonian Clay matte shadows. I love these palettes because they’re seriously for creating beautiful simple warm tone eye makeup.  I wanted to keep this makeup look simple but glamorous at the same time. All the makeup details for this makeup look will be listed down below.

I’m so excited that it’s officially Fall. I have been ready for Fall since August. I’m not a huge fan of spring/summer because it’s when my allergies are TERRIBLE. Plus fall is the best; you can wear leggings, jeans, sweaters, scarfs and of course boots. I love it. Since it’s the first day of Fall, I wanted to share with you guys OUR Fall Bucket List. We also decided to do a Nature Scavenger Hunt this year with the boys, so we can enjoy fall before winter comes. We have short fall and long winter weather. 

Beauty Mix: Olive

Welcome back to this weeks Beauty Mix with Ashleigh and I. This weeks Beauty Mix: Olive. I love the olive green colors especially on anyone because this color just goes well with any eye color. I have brown eyes and sometimes finding colors to make my brown eyes pop can be hard but olive (or purple) definitely does the trick.  I’m using the eyeshadow shades from the new PUR Cosmetics Selfie 2 palette + a foil color from the Makeup Revolution – Makeup Geek palette. 

Best Brow Products

Eyebrows on fleek! At least that’s always important to me. Before I started to get into makeup, I had no clue which eyebrow products to use or start off with. So when I started to watch youtube tutorials I noticed a lot of bloggers were using the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade but of course I was hesitant about it because it was a high end brow product and I wasn’t sure how to use it. 

It’s My Birthday – Turning 28

Growing up when it came down to my birthday I would be that girl who needed a whole a week to celebrate her birthday. When I became a mom at 20 I realized that birthdays weren’t going to be the same anymore because I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to. I mean I could but I chose not to. My energy goes into my little guys because that’s what matters to me.  Today I’m turning 28 and I’m really realizing that it’s not about how I celebrate my birthday but being thankful I’m able to see another year. Looking back at my life I’m really happy with the person I am today. 

Luminess Air

Disclosure- Luminess Air products have been provided in consideration for a review. This is not a sponsored post. Makeup is something I’m extremely passionate about and when it comes to makeup the perks are trying new products. I was contacted by Luminess Air to do a review on their Airbrush Kit. I’ve never tried or used airbrush kits. It’s like a new thing for me. I was a little intimated at first but after a few uses I got the hang of it.  The Luminess Air airbrush kit comes with the airbrush machine, 4 different foundation shades, primer, brightening glow, bronzer and blush. 

Beauty Mix: Smokey Eye

Welcome back to this weeks Beauty Mix with Ashleigh and I. This weeks Beauty Mix: Smokey Eye. I don’t know about you but I love a good smokey eye. Whether it’s black or different colors. To me smokey eyes are sexy and glamorous. If I could wear it everyday I would.  This week I wanted to do something wine and purple colors instead of the plain black colors. I definitely loved how this turned because it perfect for the fall. 

Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lipsticks

I recently purchased the Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lipsticks. I wanted new matte lipsticks for the summer and fall. If you know me, you already know I love matte lipsticks because I hate glossy lips. When I received these in the mail I was so excited to try them out because of the shades I got.  Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lipsticks have a velvet texture to them. Goes on liquid, dries on matte and the pigmentations on these are amazing.

This week is all about the bold makeup. Whether it’s dark eyes with nude lips or simple eyes with bold lips. I created this look for you today. Smokey brown eyes and wine lips. Super easy to do.
