Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower - Albert Camus

Our east coast weather flip flops everyday. Thursday was nice, Friday and Saturday were chilly, and today is slightly in between. My little sister Alyssia and I used the opportunity to take some nice fall pictures. We took a walk around the block and enjoyed the beginning of Fall.

And guess what I got my hands on this weekend? The much anticipated, Urban Decay NAKED palette. It came in the mail Saturday and all I've been doing is playing with it. Here is what I did today:

On my lid is Smog and my crease is a mix of Hustle and Buck. I also lined my eyes in Whiskey. The liner goes on so creamy smooth and the colors are amazing. I am in love. I can't wait to use Gunmetal and Creep together!

It is officially Halloween so I would just like to say HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Of course, be safe, get lots of yummy candy and if you don't want your chocolate, you can pass it on over! I did a lot of partying this weekend so today I'm taking my sister trick or treating. She's a delinquent devil :)

Hey beauties! Yesterday I went to check out A Tartan Tale and here is what I got:
Vain and Glorious Lip Kit
My Scottish Fling Exclusive
Moonlight Night Pigment
Tis Noble to Give Viva Glam

Overall, I'm happy with what I got. I skipped out on everything else because I just wasn't interested. Moonlight Night is my first pigment so I can't wait to try it. I love Pink Split MES, but it's best to be used on top the paint pot to see it better. Here's a look I did with it yesterday:

MUFE HD Foundation
Blushcreme in Posey
NYC Loose Setting Powder
Fresco Rose Paint Pot (My Scottish Fling Exclusive)
Pink Split MES on lid
Sketch in crease
NYC Liquid Liner
Brows filled in with Brun
In Sync Lipliner
Viva Glam V l/s
Baby Sparks Dazzleglass

xoxo Can't wait to see other hauls =)

Minnie Mouse :)

Hey all! Thursday night I went out to a costume party dressed as Minnie Mouse. I got the costume idea from YT guru SMLx0. I was going to do pink smokey eye, but instead did a smokey eye. Hope you like.

I'm wearing MUFE Foundation and my Maybelline Charcoal Smokes quad. I purposely overdid my cheeks in Posey and my lips is NYX l/s in Narcissus with Viva Glam Gaga on top.
I also went to MAC and picked up some goodies from A Tartan Tale. I definately spent more on this collection than Disney but am overall happy with everything. I will post my haul tomorrow. Here is a look I wore today with products:

I'm using the MES Pink Split in this look. I will put all the products in my next post along with my overall thoughts on this collection
xoxo Enjoy your weekend and thank u all for the constructive criticism on my last post. I will eventaully redo the sunset look but more dramatic. Now I really want to try lashes lol

Sunset Look

For the record, I DID NOT wear this look out! lol I was experimenting today after class and this is what I got. Any constructive criticism is welcome so I can learn from my mistake.
On my eyes, I used Going Bananas and the other colors are from Coastal Scents Regular and Shimmer Palette. What do you think?
I know it's kind of a lot but I'm working on it. I'm also wearing one of my favorite tops from summer. It's raining today :(

Sailor Trend OOTD

Hey all. I know its rare I update on a Tuesday but I got out of class early and for it to be 73 degrees today on the east coast is a BIG DEAL so I planned on wearing my sailor dress I ordered from Hot Miami Styles :)

You can find the dress here.
My face is really simple as always for school and I wore Up the Amp today. I'm officially in LOVE with this lipstick.

Time to get ready for work! Hopefully I'll have time to post tomorrow.

Let's Up the Amp in Florida!

Happy Monday! I tried to be a little creative in my post title, lol.
Anyway, long story short the Sephora sale started a day early. Thanks to one of my lovely friends who has the blog Confessions of A Doll, she bbmed me. Me being impatient told my sister to order my items, BIG MISTAKE! She ordered the wrong things. I had to cancel my order and now 4 days later my credit card transaction isn't cleared, UGH!
I forgot I had money stashed away for A Tartan Tale so I dipped into that money and picked up Up the Amp l/s from MAC. It's gorgeous!

I also ordered Florida creme blush from the MAC in Lillyland collection released back in January. I was first getting into MAC around that time and didn't know about LE stuff so I called Gone but Not Forgotten on Wednesday. They told me 2-4 weeks but I got an email on Thurs saying my order has been shipped. It came today :)

It's a lot bright than my Posey creme blush and it's very POW in the pan but it shows up beautifully on skin. Here is my FOTD:

In this one, I'm wearing Up the Amp with Revenge in Sweet l/g on top
Have a wonderful Monday. Did you get anything from Sephora? and thanks for the recs for Going Bananas :)

I Like It Like That

I ordered I Like it like that l/s and Going Bananas e/s the other day from MAC Going Going Gone and used the l/s today. I think I found my HG everyday pink lippie. All my other pink lippies I save for the night, but I think I found one I can wear for the day!

On my eyes is Woodwinked in the middle of the lid, Twinks all over lid, Sketch in the crease and a dark brown from my CS Palette on the outer v. I also put my eyeliner thicker than usual and winged it out. Something different. :)
Im loving my new lippie.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what will go well with my Going Bananas e/s ??
Take care lovies and happy friday!
xoxo Kay

Hello Fall :)


For it be mid-october over here in New Jersey, the weather is still pretty bearable. I can't stand the cold one bit and today was a good day to go to the pumpkin farm.

It was such a gorgeous day. Me and my family went on a haunted hay ride and Alyssia picked out a pumpkin to paint. My family thought I was silly to put on makeup but hey, why not! Time to really do the bold lip with a nice subtle eye. I'm eyeing the CS Fall Festival Palette but here is what I did today:

I'm wearing Woodwinked on my lid and used a grey color for my Maybelline quad in my crease. For my outer corner I used Vainglorious. My cheeks are Posey blushcreme and my lips is Heartless l/s with Wicked Ways l/g on top.
Happy Fall everyone and enjoy the weather while you can.
