Let’s jump into the December in Makeup with some of my MOTD’s.

Dec. 5th -. Simple MOTD using some Tarte Eyeshadows. Nothing exciting here really. Just something quick, easy and warm.  photo Dec. in Makeup - Bee Beauty 17_zpseqlhta9o.jpg

Dec.8th – I got my hands on the Smashbox Double Exposure Palette and created this smokey eye using the purple tones in the palette. I should have a review of the Full Exposure coming up soon.  I paired this eye with Loreal Colour Riche in Mica. photo Dec. in Makeup - Bee Beauty 19_zps2f7zfxxp.jpg  photo Dec. in Makeup - Bee Beauty 20_zpsllr966uw.jpg
Dec.9 – I got a little more creative with the Full Exposure Palette and used the warm rusty brown and rose gold shade paired with Too Lips Satin Liquid Lipstick from Colourpop as liner and lipstick. I topped the lips and cheeks with the WetnWild Gold Bar Highlighter.This was one my favorite looks of the month. Surprisingly easy.

Dec.12 – I posted this looks which I also have a tutorial for here: Holiday Glam | An Affordable and Cruelty-Free Makeup Tutorial. untitled-designThis look was done using only Drugstore/Affordable makeup that is also Cruelty-Free! This was also one of my favorite looks from December.

At this point, my MOTD’s weren’t in their usual format since I had family staying in my office/makeup studio. I’d moved all my makeup into my kit and didn’t have my lights set up so these are more just selfie style. My sister in law and I did out makeup every day together at the kitchen table and played with each other’s products and we also had fun playing with filters as you will see.

Dec 21 – Playing with @lunatick_cosmetic_labs contour palette and @limecrimemakeup Venus II with @mirrorsintheattic. I think I need that palette in my life.

Dec.22 – Mirrors in Attic and I raid Ulta Beauty and I played with the Lunatick Labs Contour Palette and Lime Crime Venus II again. I think I also had a Lime Crime Velvetine on the lips in Cindy. I also played with filters like crazy because my lighting was shit. lol.

I found myself reaching for this little fella constantly through the month. A great cream liner for next to nothing in price.

As for primer, I have been consistently reaching for the Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick for those areas that I have enlarged pore and fine lines. I think it’s working well for me since I keep grabbing it. LOL.

Okay, I and lipstick had a real moment this month. I brought so many and received so many in December, but these little guys I have been using for part of November and all of December. I will be doing a review on the line this month.

The black shade and I are in a relationship apparently. lol.

I also reached for these little guys pretty consistently. The quality is outstanding on these. I’m obsessed with the gold highlighter.

Wet N Wild Gold Bar + Wet N Wild Velour Vixen Trio

I’m having a hardcore love affair with these Sonia Kashuk brushes. I mean, look at them. They might as well have my name all over them. I know you guys I know I love bees but I also love serpents. There are a few brushes in the set I don’t know how I lived without. So dramatic, I bloody well know I am. So extra in fact, these brushes get they’re own cup on the vanity. Sonia Kasuck has a matching cup I would like to have but mama was low on funds by this point and over 10 bucks for a plastic cup is pushing it.

An odd thing I was super obsessed over in December was ugly drab ass olive green nail polish paired with a metallic accent nail. (I need a navy blue now like CIA from OPI)

I rocked this polish quite a bit this month as well, I mean it has all the colors I like plus glitter.

  1. Inspired post! Lots of color and snakes! The Wet N Wild Gold bar is a fave of mine as well, good shimmer and price! Gotta love it. e.l.f. cream eyeliner is my other go-to, have it in coffee and it’s great. Again, good product great price. Your eyeshadow blending is on point. Enjoyed your post!
