Out of this World (Halloween Post)

28 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I hope you all enjoyed your pre-Halloween weekend!! I went to a Halloween party hosted by my company and I ran into the worst scenario!! At 6pm I made the decision that I did not want to be Medusa, my planned Halloween costume!! At this time I racked my brain and wardrobe for some idea of what to be and this is what I came up with.

An ALIEN!! This was the perfect costume for me…quick and easy to put together. I went for a warrior princess vibe with my hair and outfit. I love the color play that you can do with a costume like this and I definitely recommend it for those who haven’t picked a costume yet!! You can go big and paint your entire body or just your face. As far as makeup….the options are endless, this is the perfect costume for somebody who wants to let some of their creativity out!! I definitely would do this again for a themed party or event.


Have you planned your costume yet?

Thank you for reading….and remember…

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today’s post is dedicated to the brand Mytee B.A.D. (myteebad.com). I have posted about this brand in the past, with a look inspired by their Tripe L bracelet Tuesday Tip: Be Inspired!!. In thatt post I focused on the “Live” bracelet in the Triple L set and today I am doing a look inspired by the “Love” Bracelet in the set. This bracelet is adorable and the perfect way to represent ‘love’.  It is a hand beaded bracelet with gorgeous colors like pink, fuchsia and purple. It has skulls, which we all know are huge right now and it has a silver medallion that reads “love”. I wear this bracelet often for a nice pop of color in my daily arm candy.

I decided to create 3 looks for this bracelet because I felt that “love” would deserve more than just one! I went with an editorial look first by having a simple eye and some heart focused lip art. This was definitely something fun just for pictures, but unfortunately not something I could wear out and maintain. The next two looks are very similar, the main difference being that one is more purple and fuchsia based while the other has a bit more pink in it. These looks are definitely wearable for a fall first date or a night out with your sweetheart. All three looks feature my top 3 favorite Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic liptars; Belladonna (Ultra Violet) Black Dahlia (Blackest Blackened Red or Blood Red) and Anime (Bright Neon Fuchsia/Pink). In the first look liptars are used to feature a Black Dahlia heart, while in the second look I mixed the colors to create the perfect fall plum darkened at the corners with Sugarpill’s Bulletproof pressed eyeshadow.

The Love bracelet gave me the opportunity to express my love for a few things in one shot! I used liptars that I will not hesitate to say I am in love with. They are amazing to work with and the colors are to die for.  My all time favorite color is purple and you can see that I put it everywhere I could in this look. Along with my OCC liptars, I used shadows from Sugarpill Cosmetics and Inglot Cosmetics. These three companies are my favorite makeup companies and it was great to use them in a look representing love.

What are some products or companies that you love? What is your go-to product for a date?

I hope you all enjoy this look and thanks for reading 🙂 Remember….

Throwback Thursday: Sugarpill Cold Heart Palette

13 Sep

Hey Lovers!!
Today I want to do a throwback Thursday post about my first Sugarpill purchase and one of my favorite palettes; Sugarpill’s Cold Heart Palette. This palette is no longer in stock but the individual shadows can be purchased on Sugarpill’s website sugarpillshop.com. I purchased this palette as a birthday present to myself in January 2011, about a year after the company launched. As a purple and blue fanatic, this palette definitely called my name.

This was a perfect way for me to enter the world of makeup! This palette contains an amazing matte black called ‘Bulletproof’ that is perfect for smoking out the eye or setting your eyeliner. The white shadow ‘Tako’ is the perfect highlight for the brow bone or the inner corner. The bright blue shadow in ‘Afterparty’ is amazing!! I love this shadow, it is super pigmented and versatile…. great for the lid, colored brows or as a liner! Last, but far from least, is ‘Poison Plum’. This is the shadow that I purchased the palette for, an amazing and pigmented purple that is even more versatile than ‘Afterparty’!! Use it for the lid, colored brows, eyeliner or even as a blush!! I feel that with this palette I got the best of all worlds….highlights, smokey, brights and brows!!
Though this specific  palette is no longer stocked, I highly encourage you all to order a shadow from Sugarpill Cosmetics. This company is one of my all time favorites and this is why I wanted to dedicate a Throwback Thursday post to my first purchase from them. They are cruelty-free and also have vegan products (the website indicates which products are vegan). They are definitely great quality and at a price point that makes it hard not to purchase! Sidenote: With every purchase I’ve made with them I’ve received a sample of a shadow and a cute sticker!!
Here is a picture of the palette from a post by obsessedwithvanity.blogspot.com

Here is a recent picture of my palette, almost 2 years after my purchase it still has so much product!! I use this palette on a daily basis and it is one of the best purchases I have made. I have also included swatches of these amazing shadows.


What is your favorite product that you’ve purchased? When did you purchase it?

Thanks for reading Lovers! And remember…..
