The holidays are nearly passed but I wanted to quickly share a tutorial for how I like to do my makeup during this time of the year. It’s always fun to add a little extra glitter or bright lip to an otherwise everyday makeup look. I love doing my makeup most days so I hope this tutorial gives you a little inspiration for the next time you’re getting a little extra dressed up!

Easy Holiday Glam Makeup Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Starting with foundation, I’m mixing two favorites, one from Estee Lauder and the other from Clarins and I’m using a Sigma flat top kabuki to blend this all over my face and then a flat foundation brush around my eyes.
  • Step 2  Next I’m apply the MAC Pro Longwear concealer and using a damp makeup sponge to apply it under my eyes and down the center of my face.
  • Step 3 / To set everything I’m applying the Laura Mercier translucent powder. I have dry skin so I don’t know why I do this but it makes me feel better when I do.
  • Step 4 / Next up is brows, and I’m using the Anastasia Dip Brow in Taupe which I actually think is too dark for me but I make sure to apply it with a light hand in small strokes.

  • Step 5 / For all the eyeshadow I’m using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette and I’m starting with the shade stark which I’m buffing into my crease as the first transition shade.
  • Step 6 / Next I’m grabbing Anaheim and blending this into the crease as the next transition color.
  • Step 7 / For the last transition color I’m taking Zone and deepening up the crease zone.
  • Step 8 / Lastly, I’m grabbing punk and placing this in the outer v and gently blending towards the middle of the crease. I like to place the color and blend it slightly then pack on more color and then gently blend again until it shows up well.
  • Step 9 / Now I’m picking up Pop and placing this on the lid.
  • Step 10 / Then I’m going back to Anaheim and placing this on my lower lash line.

  • Step 11 / Next I’m applying an eyeliner from L’Oreal and then a Clarins mascara on my bottom lashes. I have lash extensions so I’m just combing through them with a brush.
  • Step 12 / Now I’m going to quickly contour my face with the Nars Laguna bronzer and I like to go under the cheekbones, along the top of my gigantic forehead, under my jaw, under my bottom lip and along the sides of my nose.
  • Step 13 / For blush I’m applying the Becca blush in Foxglove on my cheekbones.
  • Step 14 / Then the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft ‘n Gentle as my highlight and I’m also placing this under my brow and in the inner corner of my eyes.
  • Step 15 / As the last step, I’m applying a MAC Lipliner in Beet and then a MAC Lipstick in Party Line.


It’s that time of year again! Halloween is coming up quick but all the parties and fun events will be here even sooner! I am super excited about this Harley Quinn tutorial. I really stepped out of my element to become this villain. Watching the batman cartoons growing up, the joker girl was always my very favorite, so of course recreating this updated version was such a blast! What are you planning to be for Halloween this year?

Some mornings (or afternoons) you simply don’t have a lot of time to spend on your makeup, or want to!  I know this is often the case for me, and on most days too. Ever since we moved to Arizona I have been sweating my makeup off nearly every single day. It gets to a point where I simply don’t want to spend much time putting it on anymore.

During the summer months I love going on a mini “hair retreat,” giving it a break from the usual stressers that can cause damage and breakage. I try to avoid hair tools as much as possible, go longer between washing it, and keep it moisturized with plenty of oils. Here are a few of my favorites that I think could also be beneficial to you!
