Eyes:

  1. Laura Mercier powder under my eyes… this is going to get messy ladies!
  2. Inner corner of my eyes: I used Verve from the front of my eye to the middle, then packing on Pistol in the middle.
  3. Middle to outer corner of my eyes: I blended Pistol and MAC Knight Divine together
  4. Crease: I went in with a MAC Brush using Satin Taupe to blend out my crease.. I then took a MAC Brush to blend everything out.. constantly blending this look. Since my eyes really pop when I add some purple shadow, I took the color Busted and added this to my crease as well.. blend, blend, blend!
  5. Using the Urban Decay Setting Spray I picked up the color Gun Metal from the first palette and sprayed some setting spray.. I placed this color on the middle of my eyes for more of a silver effect.
  6. Outer Corner: because I can’t help myself when it comes to a smokey eye I added some of the color Dark side to the outer corners of my eyes and blended this until I was satisfied with the look.
  7. Smoke it out! : using a smudging brush, I first took MAC Knight Divine and blended this on my bottom lash line.. after I cleaned the brush off and picked up the same Dark side color and went over this for a more layered effect.
  8. Liner & Lashes: this was a huge tip from my cousin, I used the gel liner before adding my false lashes.

  1. Again I used the Laura Mercier (linked above) powder to set under my eyes, I knew this was going to get a little messy.
  2. I packed on the UD half baked color all over my lid, I wanted this to be mainly gold and not have any other shades of gold involved.
  3. Crease: I blended MAC Soft Brown in my crease to soften this look, since it is a matte color I knew it wouldn’t take away from the golden look I was trying to achieve.
  4. Liner: I can’t resist a good winged liner look and I normally do this with a very neutral look, since this was going to be festive I decided to wing it. Using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid liner it was a bit easier to draw out my desired winged look rather than using the gel liner. I haven’t used this liner much but I expected the pigmentation to be deeper since it is a black liner. I had to go over my liner a few times to get the dark black look I wanted.
  5. Mascara & Lashes!
  6. Lips: Oh this lip color is just. I don’t even have a word. It SLAYS. This is by Colour Pop Cosmetics in the shade prim.

Leopard Lovin’: How I styled the latest animal loving trend

Leopard. Ah, one of the many fall trends. Fun fact: I’ve had this scarf for many years now. I believe that a little animal print added into your wardrobe is a good thing, but in moderation of course. We don’t want to end up like Scary Spice now.


Jaclyn Hill recently posted this picture and I really loved the green and leopard combo.


Her jacket though, sold out. So I got creative and created my own interpretation of the look…

These American Eagle booties I got on sale LAST black friday, my cousin was wearing them and of course having to do everything that my older cousins do – I JUST HAD TO HAVE THEM. Luckily she shares my sense of style and my knack for sales. These were a definite score and I got a lot of use out of them, currently sliding into season 2 with these booties.

I also decided that there was a lack of light in my photos so I went where there was light…


Today I am wearing…

And this wouldn’t be a Jaclyn Hill inspired look without some hoop earrings, am I right girl?


Accessory details…

I’d like to dedicate this blog post to my good friend Nicole, this post is for you my leopard print lover!! ❤️
