Holiday season is upon us, and it’s the perfect excuse to go all out on glam makeup. Today’s video is a makeup tutorial on this purple and gold look for a holiday or New Year’s Eve party in collaboration with a fellow youtuber Rotem Beauty.
Then you find yourself sitting at your vanity at the beginning of December scavenging for favorites in you makeup stash, bad blogger! Anyway, welcome to my November Beauty Favorites!
After last episode’s look into some cozy Fall routines and recipes (here), Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast has thrown a new challenge at us for the fifth episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2. This time we are exploring Fall Trends by taking inspiration from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016 (here). When Marta told us to do a Pantone Fall Trends 2016 makeup look, I was of course attracted by the yellow, orange, red and green shades, that are my daily comfort zone. In fact, I just recently published a tutorial on a Thanksgiving makeup look using such colors (here). However, the prompt also said to challenge ourselves, so indecisive and challenged I was while creating this double faced makeup inspired by fall colors.
I’m a bit late to the game but here are my October beauty favorites! I had a great month with my birthday on the 14th and lots of makeup to play with.
Welcome back for the sixth installment of the Paciugopedia! If you are new to this series, each month we get to recreate a makeup look by another makeup artist / blogger that the boss Svampi from Beautybats picked for us. You can find the looks from the previous four episodes here. I inadvertedly skipped episode 5 in February due to the super exciting things that happened (read more here), but now I’m back super excited for this look.
Ah Valentine’s Day, a day to celebrate love and wear anything pink you can imagine. I have never been a big fan of the holiday as a commercial invention to sell, so no gift guides from me here. Nonetheless, I do take it as and excuse to go out for a nice dinner with my other half and dress up nicely, because why not!
Thank God It’s Friday! I’m not going anywhere tonight, but it’s a good occasion for me to share a more dramatic makeup with you guys. For this look I wanted to give a different twist to a makeup I have been wearing all the time lately. I have been tanning a bit and therefore gravitating to warm colors for my eyeshadows using my beloved Nabla shadows. To spice it all up a bit, I used a blue liner and eyeshadow on the lower lash line which introduces some contrast and more color to the look. This look is perfect for spring and even more for summer thanks to all the shimmer and sunset tones. These are my warm contrasts.
Happy Monday peeps and welcome back to another monthly favorites post. February was a crazy month, lots happened and it literally flew by without me really wrapping my head around it. But let’s get into all those beauty bits I have loved and used the most this month.
Happy Friday beauties!! In December I grabbed a few gorgeous shadows from Nabla Cosmetics among which an incredible shimmery blue called Eternity that is absolutely stunning. Admittedly it’s not an everyday color to wear for work, but I find it an incredible pop and makes for a very intense smokey eye for a night out.
Holiday season is my favorite time of the year to dress up and amp up my makeup for parties. This time I want to go with a new very colorful look and the stars here are Cattleya eyeshadow from Nabla Cosmetics and Rebel by MAC. I’ve been wanting to use Cattleya since I bought it this summer, but all my warm red tones always called me more, so I finally decided to make it the center piece and boy isn’t is absolutely stunning!!!
