I did a few pretty simple makeup looks this past week, all of which only took me about 5-10 minutes on average. I actually ended up really liking how they turned out, so I thought I would do a quick photo roundup of the looks. I’ve posted them on my instagram, so if you follow me there, you may have already seen them. I used a lot of the same products for these also. Make sure you let me know which one is your favorite in the comments!

Pastel looks are so much fun, and it’s the perfect time for one! It’s Easter, it’s Spring, and my once vibrant hair has also faded into a more pastel rose color. I love trying to get a little creative and use colors that I wouldn’t normally use in an everyday makeup look. Overall, I’m quite happy with this look. I really love how the colors just seem to blend really well together.
👽 Mannakadar Blush (shade Paradise)
👽 ColourPop highlighter (shade Honeymoon)
👽 Lime Crime lipstick (shade Airborne Unicorn)
👽 Loose Glitter
👽 Shany 120 color eyeshadow palette
👽 Shany gel eyeliner (shade Supernatural)
👽 NYX retractable white eyeliner
👽 Grande Cosmetics Mascara Primer (white)

What a cool idea for a bag this month! You all know I am a creative/artsy type, so this is perfect. It comes with markers so you can color it! I haven’t colored mine yet because I want to use more than just the two colors they provided me with, but I probably will eventually.

I received my fourth VoxBox, complimentary of Influenster, a week and a half ago. If you’re new here and don’t know what Influenster is yet, it’s a site/app that gives you the opportunity to receive and try products for free in exchange for reviewing, sharing on social media, and completing a survey afterwards.
I have to admit, I had not heard of Grande Cosmetics prior to this, but I was definitely intrigued once I got the email that I would be receiving this box. I had never used eyelash serum or primer before, but I was definitely excited to try them. Especially since I don’t have very long lashes.

I am beyond excited to be posting my first collaboration with Rossy from AyR Galaxy! I contacted her a couple weeks ago about doing a St. Patrick’s Day makeup post. We both like trying out different looks, and we’re on a similar skill level when it comes to makeup, so I felt like we would be a great match together.
I thought it would pretty cool if we each did two looks and then split those among our blogs. I am posting one of my looks here on my blog, and Rossy will be posting the other look I created on her blog. Likewise, I’m posting one of her looks here, and she will be posting her other look on her own blog. So make sure you check out her blog post so you can see the other great looks we created!

I had Friday off work because I had to wake up at 5:30 am to take my mom to a medical appointment. She was being put under anesthesia, so she couldn’t drive. I’m usually just going to sleep between 4 and 5 am, so I wasn’t too happy about this. I had requested the day off work (even though I’m not scheduled until 2 pm) because I figured afterwards I would come home and sleep most of the day.
Surprisingly, I didn’t feel much like going to sleep once I got home. I drank an energy drink and then I decided to go get my hair done because it really needed it. I didn’t really know for sure what I wanted done, so I kind of just made up my mind when I got there. I was thinking about just getting my blonde touched up, but I also mentioned possibly wanting to go pink again. My stylist was really excited about that because she said she hadn’t got to do pink hair in years. She said everyone seems to want blue or purple hair. I actually did almost go blue too, but I decided against it since when it fades it usually leaves a greenish tint to your hair.

I’m a little late getting this post up. It’s already March! I’ve been quite stressed out at work this week, and as soon as I get home I just feel like crashing. That’s what I almost did tonight too, but I had to muster up the motivation to get this up so that I don’t stray too far off schedule.
The design this month has a classy and elegant feel to it, though it’s not one of my favorites. I don’t dislike it either, I’m just sort of indifferent to it. I don’t really use the bags though. I just kind of hoard them.
