POP OF RED | Date Night Outfit & Makeup

Hey Guys!

It’s that time of the year again when we are all bombarded with everything pink, red, sweet and bright! Although I am not doing anything on Valentine’s Day this year – It is a Tuesday after all and I dread going out on week days- I went out last Friday. I guess I can classify this look as something I would wear today, if I was to step outside in the snow/frigid weather. It is currently snowing as I type this, so go figure. Alas, I only went to work and cannot wait to go back home where it is warm, with Mother Netflix waiting on me.

 I feel this makeup and outfit look is so appropriate for the occasion. I decided to go with a red lip, paired with a flawless foundation base and flirty eyes. I really like how this look turned out. With makeup, practice truly makes perfect!

Blue Velvet | Makeup

Hey Loves!

I am learning to let go and step outside my comfort zone. I am talking personal life, work life and… even makeup. I typically do neutral/natural looks but I decided to step outside the box. I’ve had the Luxie Beauty “Blue Me Away” palette for almost a year and I finally worked up the courage to give it a try. Outcome? Love. I hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed creating it. Moral of the story is to step away from the usual. You never know what will happen.

My Relationship With Make-up


When it comes to makeup, one might say I am weird. I do not wear any. I don’t like the feel of it on my face.  It makes me feel like I am covering my skin and my identity. Quite frankly, I really do not want to invest time, energy and resources into make-up. I am a simple type of girl. I like to keep things relatively easy and fast.

Don’t take me wrong, I don’t have anything against make-up or whoever decides to wear it. I actually enjoy watching tons of videos on Youtube on makeup  applications and the pretty “new” colours. I find myself going inside the MAC store once in a while just to look at what is new or try out a new shade of lipsticks. However, it is just MY personal preference and choice to not wear any.  I have given makeup a try: bought powder/foundation/lipsticks, but could never get into it. Although my skin is far from perfect, I would rather deal with my imperfections instead of covering them. I feel like they make me who I am, in a sense. Plus I would rather sleep an extra 10 minutes in the morning instead of doing my makeup! lol

What do you think of makeup? Am I the only one who is just simply not into it? Leave a comment!
