Let’s talk cat eyes! Today’s beauty blog theme is the infamous cat eye! I figured I would share some of my favorite drugstore brand eyeliners.
Who doesn’t love a cat eye slayed for the gawds?
This NYX gel liner in jet black was the first gel eyeliner I ever purchased. This was my OG eyeliner. I love how it dried jet black and matte. It’s also great for smudging under eye looks.
Wet and Wild’s Megaliner was a true hardship for me! I couldn’t use liquid eyeliner for anything when I first started to attempt doing a wing. I would try, try, and try again until I ended up with panda eyes.
Liquid liner definitely takes patience. I think that’s why I always used to reach for the NYX gel liner. It was easier to use and dried quickly. I have noticed myself reaching for this a lot more often because once you know how to use this liquid eyeliner, it is LIFE.
The Maybelline masterprecise pen has made an appearance on my blog before. I purchased this for the first time last year and was immediately hooked! Where was this pen when I started doing my cat eye? It has the easiest application out of all the previous mentioned liners. My only con is that I have to go over it a few times to get it jet black. I still reach for it on days when I want quick, easy, and no fuss eyeliner application.
My newest obsession is the NYX vivid brights eyeliners! The wand has an extremely tiny brush that makes application a breeze. I felt like a pro makeup artist using this the other day. I ended up going back and buying more colors. It’s goes on easy and dries quickly. What more could a girl ask for?
Those are my favorite drugstore brand eyeliners at the moment. What are some of yours? Let me know below in the comment section!
Happy Monday! I can’t believe I am still going strong with my 30 days of blogging. Today’s topic is Autumn inspired makeup.
I created this look using only my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette on the eyes. This palette is my GO TO palette. I noticed recently that I have hit the pan on the colour burnt orange. Its favorite shade to use for a transition.
Living in South Florida, I never noticed the seasons. I was very thankful being in England last Autumn to be able to experience the rusts and reds of the leaves changing to prepare for the winter.
Neutral tones are definitely my fav! I love the browns and beiges of most palettes. I used my Anastasia renaissance palette for this neutral tone look.

I think I’m over Matte lips. Don’t quote me on this! Lol I love a matte lip but there’s something about a juicy lip in the summer that gets me every time! Lol
What kind of lips will you be going for this summer? Matte, gloss, bold? Let me know below in the comments!

Let’s talk eyeliner! Today’s post is supposed to be about crazy eyeliner. As much as I wanted to do funky and crazy eyeliner designs… my skills just aren’t there YET. Emphasis on yet, because my skills will be one day.
I was recently in Boots and noticed a brand new NYX cosmetics section. I haven’t been able to find the vivid bright liners anywhere. Low and behold there they were!!
Every single color was available, so I picked out a few. I decided for this look I would use the color “vivid sapphire”. It’s gorgeous on my skin tone. I was nervous about how it would look, but in the end it gave my look a funky twist.
I love that the NYX vivid brights liners have a thin applicator. It made applying the liner so easy! The color went on smooth and had so much pigment with just one swipe.
I recommend this product 100%! What are some of your favorite eyeliners? Let me know below in the comments. 💙
These are a few of my favorite bold lip looks. Normally, I am a nude toned lip girl. Nudes are life! Occasionally, I like to step out of the box. I know stepping outside of the box can be strange at first, but all you have to do is embrace it girl!
This is one of my favorite drugstore reds. It is a deep cherry red color. I love it on a dark grungy look. My only disappoint with this lipstick is that it feathers after hours of continuous wear.
MAC’s Riri Woo is a gorgeous bright red with a slight gloss. It’s on its last end. I know I probably should have thrown this out ages ago…. but its so hard to let go of this color.
I have a love-hate relationship with MAC’s Fervent. I never know when its “appropriate” to put it on! I get the most compliments when I wear it. LOL I love this color but get scared of a deep dark purple lip. I have to take my own advice and embrace it!
What are some of your fav bold colors? Let me know below in the comments section!!!
I don’t know if this the usual norm for the U.K. but I am still very cold! This is my first spring in England. I have to admit it is nothing like springtime in Miami. We headed out for our usual walk and I decided to opt for warmth and comfort.
I purchased this orange hoodie from Prettylittlething.com thinking it would be darker than it actually is in person. It says staff across the front. It’s an on-trend lightweight over -sized hoodie. I topped it with my favourite army vintage jacket. You can read more about this jacket in my last OOTD post linked here—>
The Adidas pants are super comfy. I wear them whenever I am in doubt of what to put on for the day. They are actually men’s track pants in a smaller size. I love wearing unisex clothing. We shouldn’t be limited to wearing only men’s or only women’s clothing.
My favourite sneakers are my Adidas NMD. They have the most comfortable sole known to man. LOL, I can walk for miles in the sneakers and not feel a thing.
Whenever I do not feel like messing with my hair I always throw on a baseball cap. I purchased this Adidas baseball cap from Poshmark.com for $6! It’s such a great investment, as I wear it most days!!!
This past weekend I ended up in Brighton. I was excited to visit all the stores as my friend had a make up appointment at M.A.C. She invited me to tagalong.
I’ve been trying to decide on a new foundation that accommodates my skin color. All of my other foundations are more orange base as opposed to golden. I didn’t know that M.A.C. gave 10 day samples of foundation. They were super friendly and helpful. I was given two different foundations NC45 and NC47.
The foundation is the Studio Fix Fluid which is good for people with oily skin. If you’ve been following me you know I have disgustingly oily skin. I explained to the make up artist that I had super oily skin. She then suggested I try the mattifying gel and the oil control lotion. I also was given samples of both of these to try. I will do another post with my thoughts on these two products.
It’s hard to choose foundations because one matched my neck well while the other matched my face better. I think I’m going to go with NC45, as it blends better on my face. How do you choose your perfect foundation?
I also picked up a few other things this highlighter from M.A.C. called, Oh Darling and it is EVERYTHING!! The golden shimmer is gorgeous on all skin tones.
I also opted for honeysuckle matte lipstick by MAC. This pinky toned nude is gorgeous with MAC’s chestnut liner on my skin tone.
I hope you enjoyed my pickups and if you have any comments or suggestions please leave them down below. 💜
Thanks so much for reading!!!

I put together a colourful look using my £4 Makeup Revolution Colour Chaos palette. The pigment in the palette is gorgeous. Inspired by Coachella season, I wanted to do a different look from my normal neutral or mauve tone looks. I love all of the shades in my Makeup Revolution “Colour Chaos” palette, and can’t wait to do more spring & summer looks!
