Holiday Makeup + Update ♥

Hellooooo,

I am so sorry for being gone for so long! If you watch my video you will know why I’ve been missing for the past month. I missed blogging and making my beauty videos so much and I’m so excited and so motivated to begin again. I wasn’t able to upload a video before christmas so I decided to film this holiday look in case you guys wanted to try it out for New Years Eve ( I know it looks more like a Christmas look, sorry!). I am making a vow to stay more consistent with my blog and videos because in order for me to make them successful, I have to continue to give you guys content, so definitely stay tuned for more consistent posts!

I hope you guys had an amazing Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) and of course I wish you guys the best new year! I will probably have a post or two before Jan 1st so I will see you then!

If you enjoy my video, please make sure to subscribe to my Youtube Channel so you can stay up to day and of course don’t forget to share with your friends and family! Love you all and thank you so much for sticking with me through my little hiatus.

Brown Lips & Neutral Eyes ♥

Autumn has quickly become one of my favorite seasons. Lately I’ve been really into the beautiful fall colors and the weather has been just right. This has inspired me to create a makeup look using Browns and Golds ; Fall colors. Recently I bought the Lime Crime Velveteen in Salem and it’s the perfect brown lip product for the fall. I am obsessed with it and wanted to create a look around this lipstick. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did creating it, let me know if you like talk through videos better than voice over ones

Lips of The Moment – Shades of Orange ♥

Although Summer is pretty much over and everyone is prepping for vampy lips and dark eyeshadow, I’m still stuck on my bright lipsticks. Orange is a color that I truly believe can be transitioned from Spring/Summer to Fall. Winter not so much. Since the days in New York are still a little warm I decided to show you guys my favorite Orange lippies! You still have time to rock this shade so feel free to make those lips stand out!

Lipsticks

Orange isn’t a color for everyone. It sort of falls into that drastic color box with purples, blacks, blue’s , and pretty much every other “different” lipstick color. I love to have fun with my lips so I decided to include different shades and pigmentations so that there’s something for everyone!

lips 1-91. Maybelline ColorSensational VividsElectric Orange : Definitely one of the truer more pigmented Oranges. This formula is amazing. Super creamy and glides right on. You do have to reapply throughout the day, but it does not dry out your lips.

2. NYX Butter LipsticksHot Tamale: Probably one of the truest Orange lipsticks you’ll ever find. Looks like an Orange Crayola straight out of the crayon box. Easy formula, Glides right on. Doesn’t stain the lips and is moisturizing.

3. YSL Rouge Pur Couture13: Super pigmented and moisturizing. Love the way it feels on my lips. Also very true Orange. You have to reapply with this one as well. Only thing I don’t like is this lipstick tends to feather so make sure you wear a lip liner with it.

4. Maybelline ColorSensational VividsVibrant Mandarin: This lipstick is more of a Reddish Orange. If you don’t really like stepping out of the box when it comes to lipstick colors but you want to stay on trend, this is probably one of the best fits for you. It definitely looks more Red than Orange but is clearly still Orange.

5. Revlon ColorBurst Matte BalmAudacious: First of all, let’s talk about my love for this product in general. It’s matte and the formulation is amazing! I also own the purple one and I love it. Although it’s matte, it feels amazing on the lips – not drying at all. The color isn’t as pigmented as I would love for it to be but it’s a very wearable Orange. Great for daytime!

6.  Too Faced Melted LipsticksMelted Coral: This is another matte lippie which is perfect for those of you who are not into the whole glossy lips thing. I have really dry lips 90% of my lifetime so for me, this lipstick is great when I pair it with a lipgloss, if not it’s not really my favorite. The color is very toned down so you can definitely get away with it during the day.

7. Wet ‘n Wild Megalast LipsticksPurty Persimmon – Umm, let’s talk about the price point for such an amazing product! I’m pretty sure I only paid $2 for this at the drugstore and sometimes they’re buy one get one 1/2 off. How amazing is that!? This is probably one of my most worn lipsticks because it lasts all day! The only two downfalls is that it is super drying on the lips and it also stains them. Other than that I totally recommend this lipstick, especially for the price point!

8. NYX Butter GlossCherry Cheesecake: I mean who doesn’t love NYX’ lip butter glosses? They’re a must have in anyone’s makeup collection! This is the perfect orange to wear either by itself or over a lipstick. It’s pigmented enough to wear alone but also light enough to wear on top of other Orange lipsticks.

9. Revlon Colorstay Moisture StainMiami Fever: This is a new product to me but so far I love the way it feels on my lips. The pigmentation is okay… I feel like it goes on very streaky but I love that it’s a bright Reddish Orange so it’s very wearable and can be daytime and night time appropriate.

 

So those are all of my favorite Orange lipsticks of the moment. I had a mixture of high end and drugstore which is amazing! I hope you guys found this post helpful when trying to choose an Orange lipstick. If you’ve tried any of these or have any other recommendations please leave them below.. We all know I love to try new products!

Black Lips & Neutral Eyes ♥

Black lipstick has been the new trend lately, besides the Kylie Jenner Nude Lip. I’ve been wanting to try this trend for a while but was a little hesitant since black lips is so difficult to make wearable. I’m pretty sure the last time I wore a Black lip was when I was about 10 years old for Halloween (I was a witch btw).

Anyway, I’m super happy with how it came out! I made sure to bronze my skin and contour perfectly so that my face didn’t look too flat. I wanted to keep the eyes neutral but still a little smokey to give it a nice exotic effect.

I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I did filming this. I am seriously obsessed with how it came out so I really hope you guys love it just as much!

Night Out Makeup | Feat. Amrezy Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills ♥

If any of you are as addicted to makeup the way I am, I’m sure you also follow a thousand and one makeup “guru’s” and makeup artists on Instagram. Many of these girls are lucky enough to establish an amazing following which eventually leads to brands taking notice of them. Amrezy is one of these girls. I have been following her for a while now and I just love all of her amazing makeup looks! She’s definitely the QUEEN of highlighting in my opinion, for sure. She recently collaborated with Anastasia Beverly Hills (The QUEEN of eyebrows herself) to create an eyeshadow palette.

I personally love to support my fellow Youtubers, Bloggers, and Instagramers as much as I can, especially when I truly believe in their talent. With that said, I went out and bought this palette the week it came out (Totally would’ve bought it the day it came out, but of course it was sold out everywhere!) I’ve been in love ever since.

I plan on doing a review on it soon, so definitely stay tuned but I couldn’t help but play with it as soon as I got it so I decided to film a video doing just that 🙂

I hope you enjoy this look that I created, like I said, it was the first time I actually used the palette so I wasn’t even sure what I was going to do in the beginning haha. If you do enjoy the video, please share it with your friends & family (hey, you can even tag @amrezy herself!), comment, like, and of course subscribe!
