Back to School Makeup - Making Neutrals Fun For Someone Who Hates Neutrals

Yeah, it's that time of year again.  Back to grad school for me and back to school for a ton of other young whipper snappers.

I love going to class, I really do.  It's normally the only time I get to really experiment with fun makeup...to a certain degree of course.

Unfortunately I'm in an MBA program, and there's not a lot of fun going around and I normally stand out in a classroom because of my bright makeup choices.  It's the first day of classes though, so I don't want my professor's thinking I'm crazy until they get to know me.  Because, you know, I'm that "fun" kind of crazy.

I find that even when I'm using my neutral colors my makeup is still way darker than the other students.  Oh well.

Anyways, now that my complaining about having to tone down my makeup is over, here's what I wore tonight:

Holiday 2014 Warm and Cool Eyeshadow Looks

I'm sorry for the late posting of holiday looks but I created a warm and cool look just in time for New Years!  

Here's a picture of the shadows used:
BareMienerals Ready 2.0 in The Flashback, Urban Decay Naked Basics, SugarPill's Heart Breaker, Too Faced Pretty Rebel, BareMierals Loose Eyeshadow in Pebble, SugarPill's Loose Pigment in Goldilux
From the palettes I used the following shadows:
Heart Breaker - Velocity
Pretty Rebel - Too Fetch
Naked Basics - Crave and Venus
BareMinerals Ready 2.0 The Flashback - Deja Vu & Amnesia

I also used Brown from the Lorac Mega Pro Palette (not pictured).

If you don't have the exact shadows used, just substitute something you have in your stash that's close.

Taste Test - Celestial Seasonings "Candy Cane Lane" Green Tea

So I just posted about the #FrostyVoxBox I received.  If you missed that post you can read it here.  In the box I got a sample of Celestial Seasonings decaffeinated green tea in Candy Cane Lane.  I know this is a beauty blog but I have a passion for tea as well and I have quite a huge collection so I thought I would share some reviews/thoughts on some teas every once and awhile.

Seeing as I just received this voxbox and this tea was inside, I thought this would be a good place to start.




Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Review

So in a previous post I mentioned receiving these items from Influenster for free for testing purposes.  You can read about that here.

I'm excited to review these items as they were some of my favorites that were given to me!



#FrostyVoxBox Thoughts

So I open my front door today to look for packages and to my surprise a Vox Box has shown up on my doorstep!  For those of you who don't know what a vox box is, they're boxes filled with goodies from different companies sent out to people to review for free.  To get one, all you have to do is sign up on influenster.com and link your social media accounts.  I have a widget to the right that will take you right there!  

I believe some vox boxes are given out at random but you have a higher chance of receiving one if your social media accounts reach a lot of people (lots of Facebook friends, Instagram followers, Tumblr followers, etc.).  They make it fun.  You review things, you unlock badges, and then you get perks.  

Anyways, back to the #FrostyVoxBox!  Here's a picture of the box with the goodies inside!



As you can see, there's an assortment of items.  Keep reading for a break down of what's in it and what I'm most excited to try!
