Makeup of the Day | LORAC POREfection Foundation + Pinks and Purple

 

So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m obsessed with pink and purple eyeshadows. I know people are afraid of them, but they shouldn’t be! I’m hoping that at the very least my posts help inspire people to try them out.

Anywho, the most exciting thing for me today was trying out my new LORAC POREfection Foundation. It’s my first high-end foundation (aside from a MAC foundation I got recently) and I chose it because of the great reviews online. I also happened to color match myself perfectly. Stay tuned for a First Impressions video on it.

Makeup of the Day | Revlon Colorstay Sea Mist

 

Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow quad in Sea Mist initially looked like a “grab bag” of colors. A pink, a blue, a purple and a green. I honestly didn’t think it would work.

 

I was wrong.

This quad quickly became one of my favorites, and you can see why:

When blended nicely, the colors create this “starry night” type look that is not too purple, too blue or too green. The light blue shade packed onto the lid catches the light perfectly and brightens up even my brown eyes. 🙂

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag

Whenever I travel, I tend to overpack. I love having options with me because I never know what I’m going to want to wear, or how the weather may change. This is no different when it comes to makeup.

Lately, I’ve been doing my best to “lighten the load” and not pack so heavily. I just recently took a trip to the Bahamas for a wedding and decided to give you the inside scoop of what’s in my travel makeup bag.

LORAC Makeup SALE on Hautelook? Maybe…

Today I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to find out whether or not Hautelook will be having a LORAC palette sale later this morning.

See, on the website the event isn’t listed, but on the app:

20140314-075738.jpg

Why is this so exciting? For starters, LORAC is expensive. I tend to splurge on their eyeshadows mainly because they offer high quality shadows, including mattes, which I can’t say for all high end brands. What makes me even more excited is the fact that it specifically says “palette.” Could we maybe be seeing the PRO palette for a steep discount?

A girl can dream.

Anywho, the maybe sale starts 8 AM PST (11 AM for us east coasters). Be sure to check it out!
