Heartbreaker Makeup Look

This look came about when I found the Sex Bomb palette at Ulta. Not many people can pull off red eyeshadow, but I wanted to have a try - and with Valentine's Day here, why not?


The Heartbreaker Makeup look was born. I knew it needed to be edgy and bold. Smoky and sultry. It only came together completely after I added in the red glitter to pop.

What do you think?

6 Makeup Trends That Should Make a Comeback for 2016

There has been a lot of hate on YouTube and other social media sites. Bullying and tearing down others. It's not okay. I don't accept it.

We all have opinions - I most definitely have mine. I like to think that I can be blunt and opinionated, but I also want to think that I have tact too.

I wanted to create a fun video that played on the trends that you wish would go away, which has been making their rounds on YouTube. After thinking about it though, I couldn't find myself to go on about these trends without doing so positively. I nixed the idea and decided instead to focus on what trends I do like - which doesn't tear anyone or anything down.

In the video below, I talk about some trends that I personally love and how to accomplish them in your own routine as well. Let's keep the #positivity and stay true to the art. We're all free to create what we want. Just remember, your makeup will wash off at the end of the day, so who really cares? Do you and stay confident!
