Bringing the bash this holiday season with Essence Makeup!


This post is sponsored by essence and Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own. 

Enjoying endless holiday parties or simply having the opportunity to hang out with your family & friends more often, makes the holiday season one of my favorite parts of the year. I love dressing up and being more adventurous when it comes to my makeup which usually happens around this time of the year! 

If you have been following my blog, you probably remember my previous posts that included high-quality and affordable Essence Makeup ( fun spring makeup tutorial & back to school makeup look). This time around I've created a super easy and quick holiday makeup look using only Essence Makeup products. I honestly can't stop raving to my friends about this brand and some of my favorite items like Pure NUDE Highlighter or Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara.

Holiday Makeup Look with Essence Makeup


I am absolutely obsessed with Essence matt matt matt lipsticks. They are creamy, pigmented and cost only $3.99! I've always loved red lips and I feel like "06 kiss me if you can" shade will look flattering on anyone! Check out some of my favorite shades and swatches at the end of this post!



To do my eyes, I reached out for Essence All About Roses Eyeshadow Palette ($5.49) which includes 8 pigmented and creamy shades. Muted browns and purple colors work great as crease and lid shades while the lighter pinks and lavender colors work well when applied all over the lid or as an inner corner highlight. All About Roses Eyeshadow Palette is very wearable and it's a great everyday eyeshadow palette!


Essence Makeup offers many great mascaras that are among my favorite but guys, Lash Princess totally killed it for me. I still can't get over how absolutely amazing this mascara is. It gives my lashes so much volume and length and it only cost $4.99!


For this holiday look I used Essence satin touch blush in shade satin love. This blush has a great pigmentation and it blends effortlessly. It complements my complexion and adds a natural color to my cheeks.


I don't know about you guys but I am totally addicted to eyeliners. I wear them almost everyday and I find eyeliner pens to work the best for me. Essence superfine eyeliner pen is very precise and draws fine lines which help tremendously when you are trying to get the perfect cat eye. It is also very pigmented which is my pet peeve when it comes to eyeliners, they have to be the blackest of the black! Love this one!

Getting My Game Day Glam with L'Oréal Paris!

Getting My Game Day Glam with L'Oréal Paris!


This post is brought to you by HBO and Her Campus Media

Football season is in full swing and what's better than watching a good game while eating all the delicious snacks (with the emphasis on snacks ha). I am definitely in it for the food (mostly) than the game itself but I do like to show support to my husband's team so I usually will wear his team's jersey and get my casual glam on. Recently I discovered some new L'Oréal products and thought they were an awesome addition to my easy going game day glam! 

 L'Oréal Colorista 1-Day Spray comes in lots of fun colors and it's basically a temporary hair color spray that is gentle and washes out after one use. I always wanted to try pink hair so I am stoked to try the pastel pink shade soon. I have blonde highlights on my naturally dark brown hair so I think it will look really pretty!


You can use Colorista on both blonde as well as darker hair colors and since it doesn't have bleach in it, it won't mess with your original hair color.  You just simply shake, spray and allow few minutes for the product to dry. Make sure to not spray too much at first, the color becomes more vibrant as it dries.


Since I am usually going easy on the eyes on a game day, I do like to make sure I am wearing a cute lipstick. L'Oréal Infallible Paints liquid lipsticks are a great choice since they are nicely pigmented and super comfortable to wear. I am actually really impressed with these babies! The color payoff is excellent and they apply effortlessly!




Swatches: Infallible Paints Lip Liquid Lipstick in 314, Infallible Paints Mattes in 346, Infallible Paints Metallic Liquid Lipstick in 336.

Depending on my mood I either choose the satin, matte or metallic finish and for today's post I am having a little fun with the boldest out of the three which is color 336 from the metallic line!



And what is your favorite game day look? Let me know in the comment below!
