Here's a little Valentine's Day-inspired NOTD that I did using Deborah Lippmann's Strawberry Fields Forever, Essie Blanc, Essie Pin Me Pink, and What's Up Nails nail plate in Love is Everywhere.

How are you doing your nails this year?

NOTD: Pink and Orange Leopard Print

The cold weather had me dreaming of warm summers and tropical islands so I was inspired to do this warm weather leopard print on my nails. I used Essie Soles on Fire, Essie Pin Me Pink, China Glaze Moonlight, and Sally Hansen Wild Card for this look.

What have you been wearing on your nails lately?

Makeup Look of the Day: Pink and Orange

Today I created the makeup look shown below:

I was inspired by my pink and orange eyeshadows and wanted to create a more fun, summer-y look.
I used Fenty 370 as my foundation and then did my contour with Wet n Wild's Megaglo Contour Stick in Call me Maple. To conceal my undereye area, I used Benefit's Boing under eye concealer and Morphe's concealer. I set everything with Ben Nye Banana Powder. I used NYX Brow pencil in Burnette for my eyebrows and Hank and Henry mascara for my eyelashes.  I used Too Faced's Cool Girl on my lips

For my lids, I used the Profusion Cosmetics Sienna's palette as well as the Huda Beauty New Nudes palette.

What do you think of this look? Would you wear pinks and oranges on your lids?

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite purchases from the Sephora VIB sale: the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette in the shade Medium Dark.

This bronzer is very nice and smooth on the skin. It blends out well and is nicely pigmented for my skin tone (Fenty 370).  I'm constantly amazed by how smooth the product is and how it just melts into my skin/foundation seamlessly and gives me a "natural" look. 

The highlighter is also perfect for my skin and gives me a subtle and glowy highlight that looks like a dark peach on my skintone. It's not an Instagram "glow to the heavens"/ "you can see me from space" highlight. Instead, it makes you look healthy and radiant and youthful and is perfect for the days where you want people to notice you and not your makeup.

Overall, I would give this product a 5/5 and would repurchase this over in a heartbeat.
