Wearable yellow look

 Hey everyone, I just realized that I have never really posted any of my makeup looks on here! That's crazy! So, today I am going to have a really short post but of a makeup look that I really like and think is kind of different. It's a yellow and brown look. I used glamour doll eyes "lemonade" on my lid and a brown discontinued Estee Lauder shadow in my crease and a shimmery champange highlight. It's nothing to difficult and I think most anyone could pull it off. I don't see a lot of yellow "everyday" looks on people and I think it is because it intimidates people. I think people think that if you're going to wear yellow shadow it has to be with some bright, bold, crazy look and that's not true. I've worn this look several times and really enjoy wearing it- I think it could even be suitable for work! Well, here are a few pics- let me know if you guys try this look out or post pictures of a wearable yellow look you have done! I'd love to see :)

Awesome new MAC collection coming soon!

I saw this post on Temptalia's blog and am soooo excited for this new MAC collection to come out! I haven't been excited for a MAC collection since the Venomous Villains collection came out in September of last year. I really am only interested in the eyeshadows and the pink blush, I think I can totally live without the lipsticks and glosses. But wow, those eyeshadows are amazing! I'm not sure when this collection is supposed to be available but I think maybe next month is what I read on Spektra? Anyway, just click on the link to Temptalia's webpage and you can see photos and swatches. I think I may actually skip out on that bright yellow shadow, the swatch just looks silver/grey and I want some of that vibrant yellow to stand out! But the rest of the shadows are just so pigmented and gorgeous and I have nothing like them in my collection, so these babies are a must have! Let me know what you guys think about this upcoming collection, what are you planning on getting?

Sayanythingbr00ke is going to have a charity raffle!


Sayanythingbr00ke is going to have an upcoming charity raffle in which she will be donating all the money towards a local animal charity. She is one of my favorite beauty guru's and I think this is an amazing thing for her to do. I love animals so much and they need our help. I strongly urge everyone to check out her video explaining what she will be doing and about the prizes she will be giving away. I've offered to send her some China Glaze polishes to put towards the prize, so I'm hoping to here back from her soon! I am going to donate as well once the raffle is in effect. Let me know if you participate in her charity raffle as well :)

Klean Colors nail polish and gorgeous ring from Target

Ok, so first off I am so irritated. I had taken several pictures of this mani I did using Sally Hansen's Complete Salon in "Fairy Teal" and now they are alll gone save one! UGGH!!!! I have no idea how I managed to delete all the pictures I took, but alas, life must go on. Since I did manage to salvage one picture I suppose I will still a post about it since it was fortunately, the best pic in the bunch anyway. 

I can't remember how I discovered the brand Klean Colors, but I'm glad I did. They have the most unique and amazing glitter polishes I have ever, ever seen. I saw a swatch of one called "Afternoon Picnic" and thought it was just so different, I have honestly never seen a polish like it. It has small gold, green, fuchsia and blue glitter with larger hexagonal silver glitter, very cool! I had the polish for a few weeks before I used it, I just couldn't figure out how to use it and make it look amazing. Then I saw "Fairy Teal
 one day in a drug store and knew that would look amazing with it, and I think I was right. I wore it to work one night and the girls at work said it looked like something that would be on a crown, like royal jewels. How better a complement can you get than that?? I really do have to agree with them because when I first applied it that was pretty much my same thought. I feel like I do have to say that the only thing that really bummed me about "Afternoon Picnic" was that it went on really thick and took hours to completely dry, even with a fast dry top coat. However, it's so pretty that the drying time factor is worth it. I definitely plan on buying some more Klean Color polishes and reviewing them in the future as well.

I also just wanted to show off this gorgeous ring I got from Target last week. It's amazing, it reminds me of pirate treasure! It is a green cocktail ring that has iridescent holographic gold inside it that changes colors as it hits the light at different angles. I took a few pics of it to try and capture the different colors. If you see this one at your local Target I suggest picking it up! I paid $8 for it :)

Bubbly Bombshell & Here Comes Trouble Crackle Mani

Hey everyone! I have the perfect summertime mani to share with you all today and it was super easy to do! I recently purchased Orly's Bubbly Bombshell and Here Comes Trouble from their new Pinup Collection and could not wait to try them out, so I used both at the same time. I just alternated the polished on every other finger, but once I painted my nails I felt like something was missing. I had purchased quite a few new polishes all at once and was trying to figure out how to incorporate another one of my new polishes into this look. I finally got my hands on the China Glaze white crackle polish in Lightning Bolt so I just swiped that on my tips at and angle and in different directions and voila! I just absolutely adored how this turned out! It's so summery and fun looking and oh so sparkly, and what's better than sparkles in the summer right?  My only grip about the new Orly glitter polishes is that they are buildable but I feel like they would look best layered over a similarly colored base as I was able to spot a few tiny bare spots here and there. Here are a few pics of my beloved mani, enjoy!
