Black Friday 2014 + HAPPY THANKSGIVING YA TURKEYS!

In a rare, serious moment for me, I'd like to say that I am very grateful for all of you in my life.  Amen. What did everyone do to celebrate today?  I did my friend's makeup and another friend's hair then we went and ATE.  I love family and friend time.  And in case you were ...

Anastasia Beverly Hills New Eyeshadow Singles – Review & Swatches

A company you already love dropping a new product you know you'll love before you even get it?  Where my pre-order form at?

Easy, Last Minute Halloween Batman Mask with Everyday Makeup

Let's start out by saying there are some POPPIN' halloween makeup tutorials on YouTube. However... I am the official Grinch of Halloween.  I don't love the holiday.  I know.  I just don't.

Lover.ly Collab + GGG “Brides Just Wanna Have Fun” Makeup

I have been super lucky to get to attend not one, but two of my close friend's weddings this year.  At each wedding we danced all night and gave the bartenders a decent workout.  Both weddings were beyond fun and so memorable in different ways.
