Product Empties | Items I've Completely Used Up!

Product Empties | Items I've Completely Used Up!

For the past few months I have been keeping the empties of the product I have been using up in a bag, waiting to share them with you!  From makeup and beauty, to skincare and personal hygiene products.  When I use up an entire product it usually means that I completely fell in love with it and wanted to use it until it was completely gone.

While I think I may have accidentally thrown out a few empties along the way, the majority of them were saved!  This video will also give you a really good idea of the products I use on a daily basis and the ones I find to be consistent and reliable.

Romantic Soft Pink Makeup Tutorial

Romantic Soft Pink Makeup Tutorial

This romantic soft pink makeup tutorial is one of my favorite makeup looks to do.  It is super simple and easy to achieve, and shades of pink look amazing on many different skin tones.  This look is soft and girly, yet sexy at the same time.  It is perfect for both the warm days of spring and summer, and the cooler days of fall.

Full disclaimer: the struggle with my eyeliner during this tutorial was real.  Despite applying tape to either sides of my eyes for a nice crisp and clean liner, I still managed to make one side much thicker and longer than the other.  Of course, I had to compensate, and did the only thing I could do with waterproof liner that didn't include ruining my makeup, which was to make the other perfect side longer and thicker as well. Sigh. #FirstWorldStruggles

Glowing Bronze & Dark Lip Fall Makeup Tutorial

Glowing Bronze & Dark Lip Fall Makeup Tutorial

Fall makeup becomes something sublimely beautiful when a dark lip is involved.  While the weather is cooling and days are shortening, the lipstick shades are darkening.  Deep purples, sultry reds, and dark browns abound and fill the aisles of beauty stores.

Whenever attempting a dark lip always remember to pair it with more subtle or natural blush, contour and eye shadow colors.  The star of the show will always be the dark lipstick, and any attempt to overpower it with dark face and eye shades will leave you looking like you're headed to a Marilyn Manson concert.  Which is cool if that's what you like, but for the majority a dark lipstick wants to appear regal beautiful.  Stick with light shades like I did her, utilizing brown, copper/gold, and tan for that effortless glowing look..

Also, take your time applying that dark lipstick.  If you make any mistakes use a small amount of concealer to "clean up" any messy areas.  Dark lipstick can be woefully unforgiving.  However, no need to take it seriously, as makeup should be fun and you should feel free to try out new and different lipstick shades!
  

You only live once.  Pick the right lipstick ; )

FALL! It is my favorite season for many reasons, but one of the best is all the new and exciting fall makeup looks.  Mauves, browns, red, oranges; the fall makeup palette is endless with beautiful shades.

This makeup look was inspired by fall sunsets and sunrises.  There is nothing as beautiful as watching the sun go down on a crisp fall night, turning the sky into transient hues of pinks, purples and oranges as it fades behind a multi-colored tree line.  What I love most about this look is the bright pop of shimmery copper beneath the lower lash line.  It plays off the browns and oranges so well.

You know when it's time to start rocking this look when pumpkin EVERYTHING starts hitting the stores.  Personally, I got my very first Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte of the season yesterday.  So grab your favorite fall beverage and let's get into this tutorial!
