CG's Electric Nights Summer collection- 'Treble Maker'

Happy Weekend!
It's a nice, long 3-day weekend for tons of people here in the States.
Lots of sunshine, boating, drinking, eating, and general partying is going on :P
As such, I have a bright, party-isn neon for you today.

I have to apologize in advance for my nails.
I had to pack up my classroom for the summer,
and the boxes/moving were not kind to my nails :/



Anyway, here's 2 coats of 'Treble Maker'.

'Treble Maker' is a neon lime/blue-green that is sure to draw attention.
Formula was good; not streaky or thin like CG's Spring collection.
Opacity was good- it only took 2 coats to reach :)

Cocktail Makeup Series- Kiwi Blueberry Mojito

It's that time again!
Now that the warmer weather/summer is basically upon us,
it's time for my annual Cocktail Makeup Series :)


Today's look is based off of this gem that I found on Pinterest:
Kiwi Blueberry Mojito

This bad boy looks DELISH.
(Find the full recipe here!)
These colors are two of my favorite to play with on my eyes,
so I was really excited to create a variation of this for my series.


Here's my look:




I used:
UD's Primer Potion
UD's 'Sabbath' & 'Heroine'- crease
Sugarpill's 'Afterparty' & Sleek's 'Bolt'- highlight
Sleek's 'Powi' & 'Cream Soda'- inner corners
Sleek's 'Pear Drop', 'Mint Cream', & 'Cricket'- lid/lower lash line
Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara

Colourpop Cosmetics - Julep

I have another one of the four lippies I purchased the other day to show you!
This one is another pink, but it's much more toned down than 'Go Fish'.
Here's Julep:

Julep is described as "a bright red coral" cream... but I don't know about the 'red' part :)




This was really a gorgeous color that's perfect for Spring or Summer.
The creamy texture to the hippie was great,
and I would definitely suggest it for the upcoming season!
:)

Game of Thrones makeup series- Dorne

Happy Sunday Funday!
I have another post in my GoT makeup series today.
If you've been watching the show lately,
you'll know that Dorne is becoming an increasingly prominent place,
with the Martells being from/ruling there, Oberyn, and the Sand Snakes.

Here are a few of the pictures I used of Dorne as inspiration:


And here's the soft/subtle look I created:


I used:
UD's Primer Potion
UD's 'Lucky', 'Reign', & 'Brokedown'- crease
SYN Cosmetics' 'Slim'- inner corners
SYN Cosmetics' 'Blaze' & 'Zone'- lids
SYN Cosmetics' 'Trace' & 'Greedy'- lower lash line
Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara

Revlon Matte Lip Balm 'Mischievous'

Happy Tuesday!
Ya'll know I love me some Revlon matte balms.
I've done God knows how many posts on them because they're AMAZEBALLS & perfection.
Today, I have a light, spring/summery matte balm for you.

This is 'Mischievous'.



This is a pastel, orange-cream matte balm.
It's screams summer, and the tanner your skin... the better this would look.
My face isn't super tan, as you can see :)

Regardless, it's a great balm.
Looks great, feels great, and lasts great :)

Colourpop Cosmetics- 'Go Fish'

Happy Mother's Day!!


So I know I've been MIA of a week or two again,
but the end of the school year is truly winding down now,
(I have ONE full week left!)
and my schedule is crazy busy.


However, I finally took some time to blog about 1 of the 4 new Colourpop lippies that I ordered a week or two ago.

Today's post is about 'Go Fish'.

This is the first Hyper Glossy lippie that I've tried.
I usually prefer a matte finish,
so I was skeptical about liking this one.
Here it is:


'Go Fish' is described as a "vibrant, coral-red"... but it's more of a vibrant, hot pink ;)
Either way, IT'S AWESOME.
I couldn't believe how much I loved it.
Summer is a perfect time for a lippie like this,
and I can't wait to break it out :)

CG's Electric Nights collection- 'Glow with the Flow'

Ittttttt's almost May!
What?! How is that even possible?
Anyway, May = summer, and summer = neons.
THUS, I have yet another neon from CG's Electric Nights collection :)


Here's 3 coats of 'Glow with the Flow':

Just as it looks, 'Glow with the Flow' is a vivacious neon pink :)
It's probably one of my favorites from the collection, as simple as it is.
Consistency was good, and it took 3 coats- but it was opaque after that.
I love it! :)

CG's Electric Nights collection- 'Home Sweet House Music'

Sorry I've been so MIA lately!
The end of the school year is crazy for teachers.
As such, I've had literally no time to blog, create looks, and I haven't even had my nails painted half the time :(( Sad.

Anyway, I found some time today to quickly swatch a new neon I got form CG's Summer 2015 collection Electric Nights.
I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS COLLECTION.

I love neons anyway, but I'm a pretty bug EDM fan & go to a ton of shows,
so this collection is right up my alley ;)


First up is 'Home Sweet House Music'.
Here's 3 coats:

'Home Sweet House Music' is a pretty typical, lovely neon orange.
It reminds me of 'Sun Worshiper' from their 2010 Poolside collection.
The consistency was a little watery,
but overall- I like it :)

Game of Thrones makeup series- Meereen

IT'S FINALLY THAT TIME.
Game of Thrones is back!
As such, my makeup series has returned again, too :)


If you saw last night's episode (no spoilers here, don't worry)
OR if you've read the books,
you'll know that at this point in the story-
Meereen is becoming increasingly more important.


Meereen is the largest of the 3 city-states of Slaver's Bay.
Before Dany liberated the slaves,
it was one of the most lavish and richest cities in that part of the world.

Based on the gilded gold on the pyramids and statues
as well as the mud/clay brick that the rest of the city was built from,
here's the look I created:



I used:
UD's Primer Potion
SYN Cosmetics' 'Slim'- inner corners
Shiro Cosmetics' 'Hodor'- inner half of lid
Shiro Cosmetics' 'I Loved a Maid'- outer half of lid
Shiro Cosmetics' 'Climbing Chaos'- crease
Shiro Cosmetics' 'Queensguard' & 'Womens' Weapons'- highlight
Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara



I wish the sheen from 'I Loved a Maid' was easier to see,
but otherwise, I love this look.
It definitely reminds me of Meereen :)
It's actually a look I would wear out in a heartbeat, too.


Anyway,
stay tuned for more looks for the series :)
