What are your favorite makeup products? Specifically, what are your favorite brushes? I’m on the hunt for a new set and need ideas. I have my eye on the Real Techniques face brushes, but I’m not sure if I should spend the money on Sigma brushes or if there’s a more affordable alternative. Let me know!

AND. Congratulations, Leatra! You are the winner of the Divergent makeup kit giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered. I appreciated all of your responses and I can’t wait to host another giveaway soon. This next one will be fashion related. Stay tuned!


Divergent: Tori Wu inspired makeup

I am doing two Divergent looks inspired by one of my favorite characters in the book, Tori Wu.


She just looks like a bad ass. Today I have recreated one of her hair and makeup looks from the movie so I can pretend to be half as cool.

Her look is a much edgier version of a neutral eye and lip, and her hair gives the illusion of a shaved side part. I recreated the look using products from my new Divergent palette because let’s be honest, I wasn’t going to do a Divergent giveaway and not get anything for myself from the collection. Limited edition = need to buy it.



From left to right: NARS Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, Maybelline Rocket Mascara, Make Up For Ever Concealer in 5, Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, Buxom Foundation in Meet Me Latte, Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown, Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder, Divergent Collector’s Palette.

I used Luminous Taupe (middle eyeshadow) all over my eyelid and blended Envious Chocolate (right) into my crease and smudged it along my top lash line. I highlighted the inner corners of my eye with Candor Lace (left) and contoured and added blush with Compassionate Copper and Rosy Horizon. I finished the look with Artistic Mauve over Naked. The lip gloss and bronzer are definitely my favorite in this palette. Both are extremely pigmented and the lip gloss is far from sticky.

Do you plan on dressing up as your favorite Divergent character for the premiere? Who would you choose?

Next week I am doing a Tori inspired outfit. Time to bust out all my black.

Have a great Thursday and thank you for reading.


Today’s Makeup

Just a quick today’s makeup. I decided to play with my Sigma Flare palette today since it usually gets buried and ignored under my LORAC Pro and Urban Decay palettes.







From left to right: Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Purple, NYX Cream Blush in CB06 Diva, Sigma Flare Palette, Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara in Black, Sephora Eyeliner in Tiramisu, Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu.

Two eyeliners? What? Yes, my Sephora liner made it into the photos on accident because I couldn’t decide beforehand which one I wanted to wear. I decided on the gel liner because it rarely gets any love.


Neutral eyes, neutral lips. I live on the edge.
