What I got for Christmas 2016.

Yes, I know this is super late. Yes, I know people have moved on from Christmas and are gearing back up for school and taking on this new year. However, I still wanted to show you guys the latest additions to my collection!

Sephora Brand Avocado Facial Mask.I used this mask right away and I really loved it! I woke up the next day with a more clear complexion. Sephora has really great masks and I definitely recommend this one!

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème in the shade Light 3.This is my absolute FAVORITE CONCEALER right now and I am so thankful to have been able to add it to my collection!

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lip Glosses.

From left to right: Moonglow, Love Drunk, Hey You.

I had never used Marc Jacobs Beauty before Christmas and these have definitely become some of my new favorite glosses!

Marc Jacobs Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon.

From top to bottom: (Big) Eyes!, Blacquer(Berry), (Cinder)Ella.

I had actually run out of all but black eyeliner, so I am really excited I got these! I have tried BlacquerBerry on my upper lid and it transferred really bad, so I definitely recommend using these on the lower lash line and waterline! I am going to give it another chance with maybe a different shade and see if they just do that, or if it was a one time thing.

Marc Jacobs The Bronze- Bronzer Brush No. 12.I am absolutely OBSESSED with this brush! It is so soft and fluffy and just… OMG. It’s amazing. It is super pricey, so if you’re looking for a great bronzer brush to splurge on, this is your guy!

Marc Jacobs Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette.LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this palette! Such amazing formula and pigmentation! The blush and highlight are so BOMB. The shadows don’t give much room for various looks without other palettes, but still a great addition to my collection!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette.I just want to shout out my super sweet cousin, Darden, for giving me this palette!! It was so unnecessary and I do not deserve you doing this, but THANK YOU SO MUCH!! This is the only palette I’ve used since Christmas and I am in LOVE with it.

Now. Last but not least…..

Canon Rebel T6i Camera!!!I am so so SO excited about this, it isn’t even funny. We’re going to be taking this thing to the next level! Thank you, Dad!!

Part of the reason it took me so long to get this post up is because I’m still learning how to use my camera, edit, and all of that fun stuff.. I am kind of getting the hang of it, but please bear with me!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to leave a comment down below if you have any of these products, or tell me what you got for Christmas!

Christmas Glam • Kylie Edition | 2016

Hey guys! I ran a poll on Twitter to see what Christmas look y’all wanted done this year…. and shockingly (not), glam won! If you want to have your say in future posts, please go to @beautybreakbets and click that follow button! We have already hit over 90 followers there and I am so thankful!!

For the sake of the post, I decided I would start with all of my face makeup and eyebrows done, so we could just focus on the eyes…

Primer: Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer. Foundation: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in the shade fairConcealer: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Setting powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Brows: ABH Brow Wiz and Clear Brow Gel. Bronzer: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil in Medium/dark. Blush: Amy Head Fresh & Lovely. Highlight: Becca Opal.

I just wanted to insert this picture to show you guys what shades I will be using from the Holiday Palette, for those of you who don’t want to continue reading!

First things first, I went in with Makeup Geek Beaches and Cream and Creme Brulee for my transition shade. Then, I used a fluffy Estee Lauder blending brush and went in with the shade Chestnut in my crease and outer corner. It is such a beautiful shadow that has found it’s way into my top favorite shadows!fullsizeoutput_3012Next, I took my Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Brush and applied the shade Frosty, which is that silvery color, all over my lid. I did end up doing a second layer using eyedrops to make it just a tad more intense… You could probably get away without it, since it does have a ton of pigment, but why not be extra at Christmas?!

After I applied the silver on my lid, I decided that it needed a darker color on the outer corner, because it just wasn’t popping like I wanted it to… So, I added this beautiful deep matte purple, Silent Night, and blended it into my outer corner and crease! I, personally, wanted to stay in the purple family, but a good black could be so awesome as well! (The first time I did this look was actually with Makeup Geek Corrupt instead. Follow this link to find it!)

I also put a little bit of Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma to the corner of my eye and under the brow bone!

From there, I used my Maybelline Blackest Black Gel Liner to add a small wing.

After that, I curled my lashes and applied the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer and then the Perversion Mascara!

To top off the look, I applied my Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Bow and Arrow! I absolutely love, love, LOVE this lip color– it is so great for winter/fall!

I hope you guys enjoyed this Christmas tutorial and that it sparked some inspiration for your festivities!

Christmas | 2015

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS! WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS! WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 👶🏼🎅🏼❤️

Good morning my loves!!! I meant to share a holiday look with y’all, but I just ran out of time. I photographed my eye look from last night so I will try to get it to y’all later in the day.

As for now, I just wanted to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas!! It is so easy to get caught up in the gift giving of Christmas, but please don’t forget the Reason for the season! God came to us in the form of man to save us from our sins. He is the reason we celebrate today (and every day). After all, you can’t spell Christmas without CHRIST.

“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” -Luke‬ ‭2:11‬

So… If you’re fortunate enough to have a loved one to spend today with… Even if it’s your puppy… Hug them close and remember why we’re celebrating! Don’t worry about the size of the present under the tree, or if there even is one. That’s not what really matters.

Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright. Round yon virgin Mother and Child, holy Infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

Here are some pictures from our Veazey Christmas morning…Keeping the tradition alive with my little Rebel loving nephew! Oh and of course Star Wars..Santa came to see the puppies in our house! They are in Doggie Heaven! Ft. Some of my new baking stuff. Giving the pups their Christmas treats from Santa!!Scoutie got some just for her, too! ❤️Santa came to see me, too! That makeup organizer though!!! 😍😍

Joy to the World, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare Him room, and Heaven and nature sing, and Heaven and nature sing, and Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing!

Have a blessed Christmas. Happy birthday, Jesus!

Xoxo.

Christmas List 2015!

These are some of our Byers Choice carolers. Aren’t they fun?!

So guys….. I have had like NO time to sit down and really commit to a post with finals, job applications, and the just craziness of the holidays. I am so sorry and promise to get on a regular schedule after the season.

Even though this is super late, I still wanted to share a few things on my Christmas list for 2015! I haven’t written out a list in I don’t know how long. I usually just let Santa bring me whatever he thinks I would like. (Yes, I am 20 years old and still believe in Santa Clause.) However, this year I do have things that I would really love to open up on Christmas morning…

These are more practical items, as I’m not one to actually use the super bright palettes like the Kat Von D-Mi Vida Loca palette. Sorry, but people around here would think I had lost my mind if I actually used the shades in that palette. It’s beautiful, but not for small town, Mississippi. So, here is my wish list for 2015! It’s kind of lengthy, so bear with me.First on my list is a makeup organizer! I’m really loving this mirrored one from potterybarn.com! It’s super glam and would look so pretty on my bathroom vanity.

 

Next on my list is this Large Brush Roll by MAC! I’m using a cloth one now and I’m so over it getting dirty. I love that this has a zippered pouch and two open pouches. It would be so great with all of the traveling I do between school and home.

I have one brush on my list and it is the MAC 135 Large Powder Brush. I don’t actually own any MAC brushes, but I have heard this is a really bomb brush. So, I definitely want to add this to my collection!

Now, I have the Makeup Geek Starter Kit and Z-Palette bundle. I’ve been DYING to try out the Makeup Geek shadows and this seems like the perfect palette for that. It has 9 shadows, consisting of: Cocoa Bear, Mocha, Glamorous, Creme Brûlée, Shimma Shimma, Drama Queen, Prom Night, Unexpected, and Corrupt! These shadows are just so beautiful and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they end up in my stocking!

Next is the GlamGlow Glamtastic Facial Set! I recently used a sample of the blue one from Sephora and I’m obsessed with the way my skin looked and felt after using it just once! I really want to try the other ones to see which one best suits me. It’s kind of pricey which is why I haven’t gone out and bought it already, so why not let Santa pay for it instead, right?

Next, I have the Philosophy Purity Cleanse, Refine, and Renew Kit! I have actually never used any of the Philosophy products, but have heard great things and am itching to get my hands on them.. Especially the cleanser. I have yet to find a cleanser that doesn’t burn my face like crazy.. I’ve been told this one is great for sensitive skin, so I’m hoping it works!

Now, I have the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. I absolutely love this bronzer!!! I received a sample of this in my birthday gift from Sephora and just recently got around to using it. It is so pretty and doesn’t turn orange on my skin like some of them do. I just really need this in my life and will be getting my hands on it one way or another!

This is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I’ve never really used a setting powder and am noticing some breakup in my foundation, so I’m definitely going to need this in my life ASAP.

Okay, this definitely isn’t the last makeup product I want to get my hands on, but I’m making it the last one for this post. Because my makeup wishlist goes on forever. This is the Becca Mineral Blush in Flowerchild. I first discovered this product on the Becca Instagram and I just think it is so beautiful. My eyes light up every time I see this and I just HAVE to get it!

Alright, this is not actually on my list, I just had to share. I’m completely obsessed with this new David Yurman bracelet! I just think it’s so neat and different from his other pieces. I also really like the all black matte one. It isn’t very practical, but I definitely wouldn’t mind if someone just really wanted to get this for me… (Wink,wink)

I also want a few of the Makeup Geek pigment shadows, Kat Von D liquid lipsticks and some other lip products. If you want to know which ones I have my eyes on, let me know and I’ll do another post about them!

Have you tried any of these products? Are they on your Wish List? Drop me a comment down below, I’d love to hear what’s on your list!
