Chit Chat GRWM: Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette | First Impression Talk Through Tutorial

Kat Von Di Palette Chit Chat GRWM

FIRST OFF: Did anyone know Kat Von D was coming out with a Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette? Yes… you heard me right. An EYE CONTOUR PALETTE. Um… what’s that you ask? Yeah… I asked the same exact thing. LOL. It’s basically a contouring / highlighting/ bronzing palette for your eyes. If that’s still not clearing things up for you, all of the shades in this palette are matte neutrals. This means there is no sparkle or shine whatsoever, and because all the shades are neutrals, they’re perfect for everyday wear and tear. The palette comes with 12 eyeshadows – a mix of warm shades and cool tone shades. 3 of the shadows are extra large – with my skin tone, these shades are GREAT for highlighting/contouring my cheeks – which just makes this palette a double-wammy of goodness! The other 9 eyeshadows are just BEAUTIFUL! Like I said, they’re a mix of warm tones and cool tones – so you can create a wide range of looks quite easily. The shades included are: Laetus (creamy nude), Lazarus (cool taupe), Ludwin (peachy bronze), Samael (dusty fawn), Saleos (smoky brown), Succubus (rich rust), Solas (espresso brown), Shax (jet black), Sytry (chocolate brown), Lucius (soft beige), Liberatus (pinkish ivory), Latinus (golden bisque). ALL MATTE. These shades were created to easily contour the eye area – resulting in bigger, bolder looking eyes.

I wanted to do another Chit Chat Get Ready With Me Video as well as a First Impression Review and Talk Through Tutorial because well… I’ve really been loving the chit-chatty videos lately. Just talking to you guys as friends has been such a nice change up πŸ™‚ So get ready for a long one– in this Get Ready With Me video I’ll be doing a makeup look with a warm neutral eye using the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette paired with a metallic coral lip with the Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Melted Debutante. Enjoy!! xx

I love doing these Chit Chat Get Ready with Me videos because it really gives me a chance to talk to you guys. It’s almost like we’re best friends or something πŸ˜‰ This look is going to be PERFECT for Summer 2015!
I love love love the bright berry / magenta / violet lip trend that’s going on right now and that’s exactly what I created with this lip look! It was the first time I tried out the Kevyn Aucoin Matte Lip Color in Resilient. Let me just say…. it is phenomenal! The texture is velvety smooth and the matte formula is not drying at all which is the problem I have with most matte lipsticks.
For the eyes, I created a cool tone eye look for this talk through tutorial. I used the Tarte Miracles from the Amazon Eye and Cheek palette. OH MY GOODNESS. These colors are gorgeous – they have a great color payoff, amazing texture and awesome pigmentation. Honestly, what else could you ask for? I’ve been loving cool tones ever since I dyed my hair blonde so that was my main inspiration behind the look. ALSO: Update from the video… I figured out what the name of the beautiful coral blush in the palette is: Talented. I believe this is a limited edition Amazonian Clay blush from Tarte, but don’t quote me on that! Either way, it’s B-E-A-UTIFUL! I know I’m going to be getting a lot of use out of this blush during the summertime. Especially on those no-makeup, minimal, natural, beach days.

I hope you like this video and enjoy chit-chatting with me on this fine Sunday πŸ˜‰

Get Ready With Me: Weekend Edition!

So as some of you may know, I’m originally from Los Angeles, California. There’s no better place than the golden coast in my heart. I just love the vibe, the diversity, the people, the many things you can do in a day and of course.. the SUNSHINE! It really doesn’t get better than that πŸ™‚

This video is a typical day in my shoes… well… a fun, weekend day.. we can skip all of the monotonous weekday activities for now πŸ˜‰

I hope you enjoy this fun video of how I get ready to have some fun on the weekends! This particular day, I ended up going shopping. One of my all-time favorite activities.

Couldn’t have put this together without the help of my best friend, Angel! She did all of the videography and editing. Make sure you give the video a thumbs up to show her how much you love her hard work! πŸ˜‰
