Matching eye shadow to your clothes?

20 Jan

Remember this trend from the 80s? NO.  Well then I am clearly way older than you.  But, yes we used to do this.

Yesterday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet also showed this trend on Lupita Nyong.

20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

It’s an update on the trend.  She isn’t wearing the turquoise all over her eye, just the inner corner and a bit in the inner crease.

I am loving this trend and I can’t wait to try it myself.

What do you think?

Beauty Box Subscription – Update to what we get

16 Jan

Once upon a time I wanted to cancel my Julep monthly subscription and get another beauty box.

sleeping-beauty-photo

This week my wish came true, and now are are both subscribers to Birchbox!  To update, I will now be receiving Ipsy and Birchbox.  These are both $10.00 per month, which means I am still saving money from what I paid for Julep. Julep was $20.00 month.

I may add yet another subscription to my month since I’m used to spending $30.00 and now I’m *only* spending $20.00 HAHA.

We had such a good time on New Years Eve, we forgot to post anything about it.  We went to the 7 Deadly Sins party hosted by our fantabulous friends in their Envy inducing gorgeous loft.

We drank

BH Cosmetics California Collection Make-Up Look

27 Dec

A few weekends ago, I went out for a friend’s birthday and I was in a sparkly Holiday mood.  I hadn’t used the BH Cosmetics California Collectionin Malibu before since it’s gold.  But it was Christmas season and I was feeling bubbly, and then I got some bubbly, HAHA.

2013-08-19 15.31.15

I used the NYX HD Eye Base with San Francisco and Malibu.

And I love how my HD Powder totally showed up white in the flash!  hahahaah

I blended the gold into the bronze so I didn’t look like a bumble bee, bzzz.  I think it turned out rather nice.

Review Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio

26 Dec

I received the Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio  in my December Ipsy.

2013-12-20 09.37.41

My Review :

This is a great little trio palette.  The colors are dark and the payoff is good.  They are pretty glittery, and are good for a party or evening look.

The only gripe I had was that they colors started to slide on the sides and on the bottom  after a few hours.  I wore the look with the NYX HD Eye Shadow Base. It wasn’t awful and I wouldn’t not recommend this product for that reason.

I don’t see the trio on their website anymore, but you can get a 12 shade palette for $24.00, so essentially it’s $2.40 per shade.  Not a bad value.

 I will try again with the Urban Decay Primer Potion to see if it grabs it more.

Here is the look I did:

Ipsy December 2013

20 Dec

wpid-PhotoGrid_1387336503744.jpg

Here is what I received in my December 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag

Ardell Natural Lash.  We are a huge fan of fakies here at Godmother Beauty.  Ardell is one of my go – to brands of lashes so I was excited to get these.  I usually get a lot of uses out of one pair.  Go-go-Gadget Lashes!

The Nicka K New York in Classic Toupe.  Some people are hating on this color, but I sort of like it.  It’s classic, it’s safe for work, and I will probably get a lot of wear out of it during these dark Winter months.  From Ipsy – ” Formula is free of DBP, Toublene, and formaldehyde. ”  I like that!!!

2013-12-20 09.35.21

Be A Bombshell – The One Stick in Girl Crush.  This can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks.  I like the idea of a cream blush, so I’m excited to try this for Spring.  I’m not sure how I dig putting cream anything on my lids since I have enough problems keeping them oil free.

2013-12-20 09.36.35

Pop Beauty – Bright Up Your Eyes Trio in Smokin’ Hot.  – Love this!  Such great colors and great pay off.  I will do a full review of this palette super soon.

2013-12-20 09.37.41

NYX Ultra Creamy Round Lipstick in Iced Honey. I haven’t even cracked this open yet because the color is pink.  I am saving this for Spring.

2013-12-20 09.35.59

I’m pretty happy with this Glam Box.  Lovely to have couple of products that I am exited to use in a few months.  Makes Spring seem that much more enticing.

What did you think of this month’s Ipsy?
