Sunset Eye Tutorial Ft. Juvia's Place Masquerade Palette

This palette is EVERYTHING!! 

So after watching numerous youtubers gush about how amazing Juvia's Place palettes are, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and decided to try it out for myself. (I know, I look crazy lol)

For $25 the "Masquerade" palette is a steal-especially considering the quality. These shadows are highly pigmented with a YUGE color payoff and extremely long lasting.

Since I'm still pretty much a novice in the eyeshadow department, I decided to experiment a tad. Originally I had planned to go with a more subtle "pink champagne" look on my lids but it ended up turning into this gorgeous sunset-esque look.

Eyes: The Masquerade Palette by Juvia's Place
Lips: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip-Limbo
Wig: Freetress Equal "Kitron" in OP430

If you want to see how I achieved this look check out my tutorial below and don't forget to like and subscribe to my channel so you don't miss future vids!

$17 Hair! **FABULOUS U-Part Natural Hair Unit**

Hey ya'll! I fell in love with this unit as soon as I took it out of the package! This is my first review on a wig that isn't a lacefront unit and I'm LOVING the versatility! The Janet Collection offers this unit in a variety of natural hair types but the one I'm rocking is 3A to match the texture of my leave out.

Take a look at my review on this unit below and head on over to my channel to subscribe so you don't miss new vids!

Wig: Get it here
Lips: MAC "Ruby Woo"

My FIRST Get to Know Me Tag!! *New Vid Alert*

Hey guys! I'm baaack! So I finally did the Get to Know Me Tag! Check it out below! 

I had such a blast filming and editing this video! I know this is a little bit different from videos I've uploaded in the past, but I thought I would keep it a little upbeat and try to keep from dry and stuffy ❤

I'm learning how to tweak editing and hopefully I'll be able to purchase some better software so my vids can be a little more YouTube pro, and a little less YouTube novice lol!

New Videos on my Channel + Christmas & New Year's Eve

Hey guys! I know I've totally neglected you for a couple of weeks but I promise I'm going to be a lot more consistent updating my blog to reflect my channel. I had a super hectic (but blessed) holiday season this year and I wanted to share a little with you all!

Christmas: This was the first Christmas for Pat and I that wasn't spent with either one of our families so it was kind of special because it was just us at home. We got a tree from Wal-Mart (like $29 I believe) and decorated stockings (OMG, I never realized how arduous crafting is and I totally respect anyone who can make something beautiful out of glitter pens and a freakin' stocking because mine looked like trash). I wish I had thought to take pictures before I took everything down so that I could share it here buuuttt....I totally spaced. I got: a new keurig, a wine aerator, some dope wine glasses from my cousin, this freakin' amazing box of goodies from my best friend Rox, some pokemon socks (score!), and 2 new Buffy comics/volumes really side note: I am a total Whedonverse groupie and have been since I was probably 9 or 10? I just started Season 8 of Buffy (I know, I'm so late) and I'm reading volume 3 right now. I've always been sort of a speed reader and I finished the first 2 volumes in a day so I'm trying to break 3 up into "episodes" because I can't spend $30 a day on new books on my undergrad budget.

In other news!! I uploaded my "favorite mattes of 2016" video on my YouTube Channel and I'm super excited about how it turned out! You can check it out below:

Most of these lippies are from Colourpop with the exception of the LAColor "Mistress" and MAC "Matte Royal". I usually don't purchase MAC lipsticks because they're so doggone expensive but luckily I got this fabulous royal blue one from my future mother-in-law (who is amazing)

I look like an alien, I know. Hush.

New Years: So being the smooth-talking gangsta that I am, I convinced my good friends to let me film our New Year's Eve celebration and they were really really good sports about it. Especially considering the fact that I sort of plied them with liquor and edited at will *evil laugh* They didn't see the final result until it was live on my channel and firmly cemented on the internet forever (bwahahaha). I think it turned out really great and I had so much fun putting it together. Check out how we rung in the New Year below:

I hope you guys liked the new vids! Head over to my channel here: ChampagneTaste for more reviews, college/couple VLOGS, and makeup tutorials! <3
