Peaches and Berry Makeup Look

Hello lovelies! Today’s post is a little bit different, since I haven’t shared any go to looks in awhile. So I’ve chosen to share my go to look for the winter and my favorite winter trend. Also with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought to go searching for some inspiration.  I searched through the Adore Me site to find some inspiration of what my go to look would be paired with one of their bra and panty sets. I kept coming back to the Fiona Contour Plus set. The set is sweet and girly and yet at the same time is beautiful and sexy. Let me jump right in and share my look with you.

Traditionally when it comes to eyes, I go straight for neutral shades, creamy champagne shimmer on the lids and browns in the crease, with black liner. I felt that my normal look would be a bit too harsh to go with the Fiona set. I kept getting creamy and peachy vibes. I took a look into my collection to see what I could come up with. This is what I came up with.

I primed my face with Hourglass Ambient Light-Correcting Primer in Mood Light. A little color correcting and concealing with the Maybelline Mastercamo color correcting kit, Covergirl’s Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in 110 and the Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in the Neutralizer shade under the eyes.

On my eyes, I primed with the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden and set it with Bisque from the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette. All the shadows came from the Mega Pro 2 palette except for one. I went into the crease with Melon and blended it slightly upwards. Then placed Sorbet directly into the crease, and was much more careful in blending this out, allowing only a little to go in the outer v. In the inner corner and all over the lid I put Peony. I really wanted to incorporate the shade Flamingo from the Smashbox Light It Up Trio. It is a beautiful peachy pink shade that reminds me a lot of Nars Orgasm blush. I used Flamingo on the outer half of my lid. Liner was the Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Sable Brown, used lightly along the lash line as well as in the tight line and water line. I smoked out the lower lash line just a bit using Melon and Sorbet to tie the whole look together. I keep my brows super simple and use the Maybelline Brown Drama in Deep Brown.

I went on to finish my face, using Nars blush in Orgasm and highlight with Becca’s Champagne Pop. I set my face with the Urban Decay All-Nighter setting spray. I then applied my L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar 2-Step mascara on the upper and lower lash line. I couldn’t decide which direction of lip I wanted to go with. So I chose more of a daytime option and an evening option.

My Daytime Option:

Covergirl Katy Kat Matte in Sphynx and Maybelline Velvet Matte in 10 Nude Flush

Covergirl Katy Kat Matte in Sphynx and Maybelline Velvet Matte in 10 Nude Flush

I chose these shades because it definitely is more in my comfort zone. While the eyes are more on the peachier side I feel like the lips complement them very well. Also, peachy lipsticks just don’t look that great on me.

My Evening Option:

Maybelline Coloursensational Matte in 660 Touch of Spice

Maybelline Coloursensational Matte in 660 Touch of Spice

I chose Touch of Spice as my evening option. In the tube it looks more of a peachy nude, but on my lips it takes on more of a brown-berry shade. I also love that its not a deep berry.

There you have it! My look inspired by the Fiona Contour Plus bra and panty set by Adore Me. Don’t forget to check out Adore Me for their selection of bra and panty sets, pajamas or workout attire for more inspiration. Have a fantastic week!

New Year, New Hair, and…

Hello lovelies! I just wanted to jump on here real quick and give you a quick update. At the tail end of Blogmas, I started to fight a cold that has only in the last week gotten worse. In preparation for the new year and Christmas, I went and chopped off about 8 inches of my hair. I love my new hair cut. It has cut down my getting ready time literally in half! My hair takes about 3-5 minutes to blow dry. Before it took at least 20-25 minutes. I was able to wash, blow-dry, do my full morning routine and ready for work in just 45 minutes! I can’t wait to see how my shorter hair curls and handles a tousled wave. img_2389 Have a happy and healthy New Year! See you in my next post!
