Hello, October! My favorite month of the year. You have no idea how much I love October. All things pumpkin, Halloween, candy, baking and of course movies. Don’t judge me but I’ve been watching my favorite Halloween movies since September. Also, I found a NEW holiday drink at Starbucks. Can you guess what that is? Nope, it’s not the Pumpkin Spice Latte, it’s the Maple Pecan Latte. If you haven’t tried it. You must, it’s so good.
Holy moly! We’re at the end of September already. WHERE IS TIME GOING?? I need this year to slow down a bit so I can actually enjoy the last few months of 2017. Because we’re officially in the fall season, last week we shared with you guys our burgundy makeup looks and this week it’s all about the orange makeup looks.
Happy First Day of Fall. Although it is 90 degrees in Wisconsin (thanks to the heat wave), I’m still going to start off the first day of Fall by doing a really bold burgundy color makeup look. That’s what this weeks Beauty Mix is all about. Burgundy screams fall. It’s dark, warm, and bold. To be honest this color is my favorite color to rock during the fall season.
First off I have to say HAPPY WEDDING DAY to my girl Kelsie. She’s getting married today. So excited for her. Welcome back to the Beauty Mix Series. Last week us girls shared 4 different warm toned eye looks which you can check out here, here, here and here. For this week’s Beauty Mix it’s all about the Brown Tones. As a brown eye girl, brown eye looks are probably one of my favorite looks to create. I wanted to create a look that was very bold and smokey because fall is all about the bold and smokey eye looks.

It’s been a few months since Ashleigh and I have done the Beauty Mix series. But we are definitely ready to share with you some looks for September through December. This time we have 2 new beauties collaborating with us; Kelsie & Lily. These girls are such great bloggers and I’ve gotten to know them very well. I love that they both love beauty as much as Ashleigh and I do.
It’s been a while since I shared a makeup look on my blog and today I wanted to share with you this Simple Peach Glowy makeup look I had created a few days ago which has been my favorite to do because of the simplicity. During the spring/summer months, I love to keep my makeup looks very minimal because I don’t have time to sit and do glam because it’s just going to melt off. The humidity in Wisconsin is insane during the summer months. So the fewer makeup products I have the better for me.
You guys!!!!! I have been so excited to share this with you because I’ve been so excited for this collaboration. I’m collaborating with my blogger bestie Alexis from A Blissful Haven. We are showing you some Valentine’s Day makeup looks + fashion looks for you. This is the first time I’m ever collaborating with a fashion blogger. I can guarantee you’re going to like the looks that Alexis has put together for you if you’re still not sure what to wear for Valentine’s Day.
I have another fun collaboration and it’s with my girlfriend Andrea from Glam Hungry Mom. We have been friends for a long time now it seems. Just like me, she also has two little boys and loves all things beauty. So we hit it off great. We wanted to create a makeup look using a palette we haven’t used but that included a pop of color. We both decided to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made palette.
You guys we are ringing in 2017 in 4 days! CRAZY. If you didn’t catch it yesterday on the blog but I did a 2016: A Year in Review. With that being said this week for the Beauty Mix is all about the New Year’s Eve look. I’m definitely a fan of New Year’s Eve makeup look because you can do WHATEVER look you want because it’s a HUGE celebration. So today I did a smokey eye using black and burgundy because I wanted to use my Urban Decay Heavy Metal (Glamrock).
5 days people! 5 days until Christmas. Are you done with your shopping? I sure ain’t. I have to finish up this week. This week for the Beauty Mix: Christmas (Holiday Makeup). I just love holiday makeup looks and this week I wanted to keep it classy, sparkly but bold with the red lipstick. I honestly believe that this look is super simple to do. The classic wing liner with the gold glitter liner above it and white sparkly shade on the crease.
