Hello everyone! So, I'm a little late with this post but Christmas Eve is tomorrow and this will be the makeup look I will be wearing. Red lips are a must for this time of year so I thought I would incorporate a red lip color this time around.

Base: I always prime my face, and right now I'm currently using the Benefit Porefessional. I like this one because it has a silicone texture but it does not feel like it clogs my pores. Then I use my Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation all over my face because I wanted a matte finish with this look. I also used MAC Sudio Fix Concealer in NC15 on my blemishes. This is the best concealer for blemishes that I've tried so far. And to cover my panda eyes, I used my sample of the It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eye in Nuetral Medium

Eyes and Eyebrows: My eyebrow product doesn't really change, the Anastazia Dipbow Pomade is the best, my shade is Blonde, obviously, haha. I have been loving the Elf Longlasting Luminous Eyeshodow in Toast because it's a beautiful, glittery gold color that is perfect for Christmas and holiday looks. I put that all over the lid and then I blended some Faint from the Urban Decay Basics Palette into the crease and Venus in the inner corners and brow bone. And now for my favorite part! The cat eye! The Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liner is great for having a lot of control and it makes it so easy to get the perfect flick. I finished off the eyes with the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. Feel free to add lashes if you like, later on in the day I put on some individual lashes.

Cheeks: I did some light contouring with the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Look at the pan on that thing! I need a new one soon. And for my blush, I used the NYX Creme Blush in Natural.

Lips: Lip liner is a must with a red lip, the one I used was the Rimmel Exaggerate Liner in Red Diva and the Revlon Laquer Balm in Enticing. I wore this lip combo to the mall once and I had multiple people complimented me in my lipstick. You know when it looks good when strangers ask you what you're wearing. 

And there you guys have it! Let me know what you will be wearing this holiday season! See you next time! XD

Cult Classic: MAC Rebel

Hello everyone! I really need to do a haul post because here's the second thing that I bought during my birthday week. It'll be up soon, I promise! But I thought I would do a post on MAC's Rebel because sooo many people talk about it and I broke down and got the lipstick as well as the travel sized lip glass.

As you can see, the swatches are beauitiful! I love the purple-berry tones in it. This shade is perfect for fall/winter. I find it easier to wear than really vampy shades because it does not require as much upkeep and it a softer look. If you're into berry lips and you don't have this shade, run out and get it because this perfect.

But, as for the lip glass, I would pass. It sometimes bleeds out of the lip lines, and that is something that I usually don't have have a problem with. It's gorgeous swatched, but on the lips in can look uneven and weird. It's a good thing I didn't buy the full size because I won't be finishing it. It works for a little something extra in the center of the lips, but I make sure to be careful and not go too close to the edges. I think I would love this formula in more natural shades, but for this deep berry color, I don't think it was well executed.

MAC: Rebel

MAC: Rebel + Rebel Lip Glass

Do you guys have Rebel? What do you think about it? Does it live up to the hype? See you next time! XD

Review: Tonymoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bars

Hello everyone! It's been a while! I decided to take a break from blogging to collect inspiration and focus on my studies for two weeks. But, finals are over and I can get back into the swing of things! It was my birthday recently and I got a gift card to amazon so I decided to get something that I've always wanted but never just buckled down and ordered it. And that was the Tonymoly Petite Buuny Gloss Bars! They are so dreaming cute! I mean, the different shades have a different face, and it has ears. Tonymoly gets an A+ for packaging.

If you're looking I to getting these, don't expect bright color right away. The swatches that I show are very concentrated but I built it up to show the color. I really like the formula because some days, I don't really want a ton of color on my lips. These shades are bright, but they are so easy and they brighten up the face. I like to wear these when I'm having a lazy makeup day and need something to perk up my complexion. And since they are more on the sheer side, they fade very gracefully and if you apply enough, it will leave a slight stain. They don't have a strong scent, so no worries there. The shades I got were #6 Juicy Orange (left) and #4 Juicy Cherry (right). Even though it's winter, I will still rock a bright orange or pink lip, I don't really care about that sort of thing. So if you're into these kinds of colors, I would definitely suggest these.

I'm looking forward to getting more shades! Let me know your favorite Korean lip products, because I'm planning on ordering more. See you next time! XD
