I hope everyone had a great new year and that you are looking forward to all the blessings that 2017 has in store.
So I was a little tied up and I asked my Dear Aunt Pearl to fill in for me and do my best and worst beauty products of 2016, and y’all I think she might’ve taken my job for me!!
Now since it is my favorite products for the entire year the video is a bit long so be sure to grab a cuppa coffee and maybe a snack but trust me Aunt Pearl will keep you entertained the entire time!
Its been a few weeks since I’ve posted and now that Christmas is over my life can return to some normalcy I’ve missed you guys but I’ve been working behind the scenes purchasing some new items to share with you, so see you have me to thank for doing the legwork for you so you don’t have to now isn’t that love?
OK so there’s been a huge hype in anticipation about Kat Von D beauties newest creation the holographic alchemist pallet her site says that this palette has been years in the making and is both vegan and cruelty free and the packaging is totally recyclable and biodegradable thanks Kat for looking out for our environment!
Not all of this sounds amazing but does it really work? You will have to check out my latest video to find out👌🏿See you in my next post 💋
The other day I told you about my new eyeshadow palette obsession:
My Newly-Found Love
The colors are soooo pigmented and vibrant that I just cannot seem to put it down. I am having too much fun creating different combinations of colors. The Morocco, Soft Peach, and Fudge seem to be my go-to crease shades but this time I decided to add a pop of color sort of last minute or shoud I say after the fact. I will show you the before and after the fact photos:
MOTD Products Used:
- Intense gaze
- Pink champagne as an inner corner highlight
- MAC Heroine matte lipstick
Before the after thought
I began taking pictures and I kept thinking that my eyes were missing something. Then I realized that I did not do a liner which was a total oversight on my part. So instead of my traditional black or dark brown liner I stepped outside the box with this:
I used Knicknak Blue liquid liner and it gave my eyes the pick-me-up it needed.
Which eye look do you like best?

I purchased Anastasia’s Artist Palette when it first came out and I featured it in my post about my favorite go-to eye palettes for the work week see post here but now I am going to have to add a newly found favorite!!
Move over Artist Palette…I’ve Got Another Love
OMG look at these colors they are freakin amazing and the eye looks are endless. I haven’t put this palette down since it arrived in the mail 3 days ago. I think I dream about what the next day’s look is going to be. The Morocco, Soft Peach, and Fudge are the best crease and transition shades it seems like I always start there. I am having so much fun with this palette and I am now an avid Anastasia fan and will purchase every single one of her palettes from this day forward. Scouts honor!
