New Beauty Series Coming Soon and Collaboration Opportunity!

Hello everyone! For today’s post I actually wanted to announce a short series I’ll be starting on the blog. As you may know, I’ve loved creating makeup looks and you all seem to enjoy them or want some tutorials. So I thought a cohesive series would be one of the best ways to showcase some inspired makeup looks. I won’t announce the theme of the series yet, but I think it’ll be a great opportunity not only to practice my makeup skills, but hopefully give you ideas for your own looks as well. I want to find different ways to explore and share beauty on this blog, whether that is through different series or through collaborations. With that being said, if you love beauty/makeup and would like to work with another blogger to create different looks, please contact me through my email ( or comment below! We can brainstorm and of course think up the perfect posts together!

I also wanted to share a quick makeup look with you guys today. The funny thing with makeup (at least for me) is going in with a specific idea in mind, and the look going in a completely different direction. That’s exactly what happened to me this time around, but I still think it turned out pretty cute and very wearable.


I used very warm tones in the crease as well as a gray/smokey color from the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette. This was my first go at a halo eye, which is placing shades at the outer corner of your eye, but also the inner corner. This leaves an empty space on the middle of the lid for a metallic or glitter shade. I went for a rose gold glitter and a classic gold shade.



I made my winged liner a little longer than I normally would, but a dramatic look deserves a dramatic wing, right?! I also layered dark blue and teal glitter shades on top of each other for a bright and colorful under eye. Lastly, I put on a pair of Eye Spy lashes from Dani Mansutti. This was my first time trying these lashes, and I love how gorgeous but natural they look! That’s very important when I’m buying lashes; I adore that extra flare falsies give, but I don’t love when they look too thick or too fake.


I finished off the whole look with a warm lip color. I used a brick tone from Tarte and layered a nude shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills on top. I made sure to concentrate the nude shade at the center of my lips to create a light to dark effect. It’s very subtle, but these shades worked well together. It was a bit difficult to blend them together to create a gradient because they are both matte shades. Once everything was complete, the look actually ended up matching my t-shirt very well which was great for photographs!

Let me know what you guys think of this look! If you have any questions about anything makeup related that you’d like me to create a tutorial on, please let me know in the comments! Again, if you’re interested in a collaboration please reach out to me through email or in the comments letting me know you’d like to be involved (and of course include some ideas if you’d like!) Talk to you all soon!

    I love how natural the falsies look, they don’t hide your lids and the eyeshadows are visible ❤️

      that’s definitely what i want in any falsie. hate when the eyeshadows are covered up!
