FREE Julep Halloween Box! Just Pay Shipping! ($2.99)

Attention nail polish lovers! Julep is giving away boxes of Halloween-Inspired nail products (and an eyeliner) for ONLY $2.99! That makes it FREE, you just pay the shipping which is only $2.99! These boxes are worth around $40.00 in value, so get it before it's too late!


I'm super stoked to try the new "Stardust Finish" polish pictured above! I personally LOVE this brand. It dries quickly, and they have such a HUGE variety of shades that I could never get bored with this brand!

The polishes are normally $14.00 a piece, so like I mentioned above, getting 4 of them AND an eyeliner for only $2.99 is one heck of a deal!

Now this is a monthly subscription of $24.99 a month, and it's FREE to cancel. Quite a few people will try it out and cancel if they are not satisfied. You can cancel at any time, so if you are interested in just trying it once, please read the Nitty Gritty below. Either way, you are getting one heck of a deal in my opinion! If you stay subscribed to the Beauty Editor Box, you get over $40.00 in products for ONLY $24.99! That is WAAAAY cheaper than buying these polishes individually from Sephora. Also, they have sales often, and you can pick up polishes for $2.00 when they clearance them out seasonally. Curious about how much I love this brand? Scroll down after reading the next paragraph to see what shades I have of theirs in my collection! (will have the pictures up in about 15 minutes and edit this post!)

The Nitty Gritty: By signing up for a  Julep Maven box, you are signing up  for a subscription to receive  these boxes on a monthly basis. so after this first month’s box is sent for a total of $2.99  (which is free, the $2.99 is for shipping) the monthly cost will be a total of $24.99 for over $40 worth of products, which is still a pretty good deal and cheaper than buying this brand from Sephora individually. You will be notified via email on the 20th of the month for a preview of the products that they have customized just for you for the next month’s Beauty Editor Box. If you’d like to cancel the subscription at any time, you can call the Julep Beauty Advisors at 877-651-3292. You must cancel by the 24th at 11:59pm (PST) to avoid being charged on the 27th. You can also cancel the subscription by email as well, in the Contact Us page from their website. It's free to cancel at any time.

Cranberry and Champagne Tutorial for Fall 2014

As I'd stated before, Fall is my favorite season! So to get in the spirit and celebrate this wonderful time of the year, I'm doing so many tutorials to share some fun and easy looks for you guys! This one I call "Cranberry & Champagne." It's super easy, and it's an easy and classy way to wear red eyeshadow without looking crazy!


Step 1: Prime your eyelids. I used the Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer in Sheer.



Step 2: I applied the Elf Mineral Eyeshadow in Elegant on my entire eyelid, stopping at the crease.



Step 3: Using a tiny brush and the Elf Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Feeling Lucky, I created a cut-crease, keeping the line as sharp and crisp as possible right above my crease. (I have very deep set eyes)



  • Step 4: I then blended that Eyeshadow stick upwards and outwards for a smooth transition when working with the powdered shadows.


Step 5: I then applied the Elf Baked Eyeshadow in Burnt Plum directly on top of the Eyeshadow Stick and blended it upwards and outwards. This is a beautiful red shade, and I used this shadow dry for this part of the look.




Step 6:  I then applied the Elf Mineral Pressed Eyeshadow in Forest Frolic to the outer edge of that crisp cut crease. (Directly on top of the Burnt Plum) I blended this upwards and outwards.



Step 7:  I then applied the Elf Baked Eyeshadow in Chocolate Dream (My Fave!!) directly where I applied the Forest Frolic. (Outer edge of the cut crease) I blended it upwards and outwards.



Step 8: Next, I applied Urban Decay's Sellout as a soft highlight for my brow bone.



Step 9: Using the Same Eyeshadow Stick as before (Feeling Lucky) and using a small brush, I smoked out my under eye area, connecting it to my upper eyelid for continuity.



Step 10: I then applied the Burnt Plum Baked Shadow WET for a shiny foil metallic look, directly on top of the smoked out under eye line I just created. (I used the Elf Makeup Lock & Seal...this holds products in place for over 10 hours, EVEN in 100 degree weather!)



Step 11: I used a super cheap black no-brand gel liner (I'm out of my other gel liners atm) to create a cat eye line to make the cranberry "POP" even more so with the Champagne shade.




Step 12: I then used one of my FAVE products in the world for Holiday Tutorials! I brought out the fabulous Elf Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in White and I had forgotten to take a pic, but I lightly dabbed my finger into the product and gently patted the inner corner of my eye for a soft sparkle transfer to make this look soft and Glammy, without being Whammy. <----I can't believe my fingers even typed that out. I Are Dork.


Step 13:  I then applied a black liner (Too Faced Perfect Black Liner cause it's waterproof) on my water line.



Step 14: I then applied a coat or two of mascara using the Elf Mineral Infused Mascara.



Step 15: I then swept a shade of blush from the Elf Studio Blush Palette (Shade pictured) in Dark across my cheeks.



Step 16: I decided to go with a rose-gold highlighter and the one I used was the Elf Radience Enhancer in Sunrise. I swept that on the very top of my cheek bones and blended it in with my fingers.




Step 17: I lined my lips using the Prestige Lip Liner in Bamboo.



Step 18: I then applied the MAC Lipstick in Taupe very lightly as a base.



Step 19: I then topped off the look using the Elf Mineral Lip Gloss in Trendsetter.




ALL DONE!





So what do you guys think of this look? Would you wear it out?

DailyLook Clearance Sale! (Possibly an Extra 20% Off)

So I'm about to place an order with one of my go-to websites, Dailylook.com when I noticed that if you download the Iphone app and use the code "ILOVEDLAPP" you will get an additional 20% OFF your order! (This may or may not exclude sale items. A friend of mine tried it with sales items in her cart and it worked for them, another friend of mine said it didn't work for her, so it's worth giving it a shot!) Keep in mind that shipping is around $5.95!

I bought a metallic red circle skirt for $3.95 and the first ring pictured. Every time I've placed an order with this company, my package has always arrived within 5 days which is awesome!






They generally add new stuff to the sale page every week, so it's worth checking out often!
Let me know what kind of deals you guys score!
