Glam New Years Party Tutorial


It's already the end of 2012 which, in my opinion, is the perfect opportunity to whip out that cosmetic glitter and go all out for those New Years Eve parties. I just can't help it. There's something about the fact that everyone will be staying up past midnight that says wearing profuse amounts of sparky is totally A-OK and I am not one to argue the point. (We all agree on this, right??)

I love me some glitter and I love me some gold so I put the two together for this year's glamorous New Years makeup. If you're still searching for the perfect party look then check out the tutorial below!


Manicure Monday: Sally Hansen Strobe Light


Happy New Years Eve (or New Years, depending on where you are located)! As the year comes to a close it only makes sense to celebrate it in a sparkling and festive way. I actually needed to record a New Years makeup tutorial so I knew my nails should be something that would match the mood as well. As I looked through my nail drawer, this lovely polish caught my eye.

Manicure Monday: Snowman Nail Art


Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Today I wanted to share a very special Manicure Monday because it's actually a fun and easy-to-follow nail art. It's been a really long time since I've done character nail art but every once in a while I think it's a creative way to express yourself and give a little happy boost whenever you glance down at your fingers. I've gotten loads of compliments on this look so I wanted to share it with you as well! :)

Check out the step-by-step tutorial below!

Manicure Monday: Layla Hologram - Flash Black


Hey everyone! Today I have another holographic polish to share with you from Layla's Hologram Effect line, and this time it's a wonderful smokey grey shade called Flash Black. As much as I love the colorfulness that holographic polishes provide, sometimes you just want to wear something a little more everyday that will match any outfit. This is one of those perfect polishes that is so special because there is an easy wearability to it but it has that special kick at the same time keeping it edgy and never boring.

This polish is, dare I say, sexy? It's soooo sexy!

Simple 1-Color Smokey Eye Tutorial


Hey everyone! Today's tutorial is my go-to makeup lately for those lazy days where I want to look put together but QUICKLY. I know smokey eyes can seem daunting for those who don't wear darker shadows but I've found that the method that I use actually produces a wearable daytime look.

With only one main eyeshadow, it's all about the shape of the shadow and how it's blended on the top line. Check out how I put this look together below!

Manicure Monday: China Glaze Ruby Pumps


Hey everyone! Today I have another holiday-perfect manicure to share with you that has consistently been one of my favorites through the years. In my eyes, every woman should have a perfect sparkly red to wear during the festive season and this is my highest recommendation: China Glaze Ruby Pumps.

It's one of those classic polishes that every company tries to replicate, but Ruby Pumps is the original and does it best. Trust me, I've tried so many dupes that left me dissatisfied every time. If you are looking for a red that is truly flattering on everyone, definitely try this one out!

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Review & Swatches!


Anymore, in the beauty world, if you hear the word "nude" or "naked" it stirs excitement but not for the reasons everyone else stirs with excitement when hearing those words. I think our makeup-obsessed ears have become rather jaded with the sexual undertones of a lot of makeup names, amirite NARS Orgasm blush?

In any case, I am very excited to share with you Urban Decay's newest eyeshadow palette: Naked Basics. It contains six "matte" (in quotations because it's not 100% matte) eyeshadows that are supposed to compliment the Naked and Naked 2 palettes seamlessly. Does it live up to that claim? Let's take a look!

November Favorites!


Hey everyone! It's still hard for me to believe that the end of the year is nearly upon us. The last couple of months since our move have whizzed by, but it has been the good kind of busy whizzing. ;)

Today I have two videos to share with you, both my monthly Beauty Favorites as well as non-beauty favorites that I'm featuring on my vlog channel, FrmJen. You can follow FrmJen if you'd like to see what's going on in my life and also come along on my random trips and adventures.

Manicure Monday: NYX Las Vegas


It's finally December and that means that everyone is gearing up for the holidays. I'm so looking forward to the festive music, cozy drinks, and sparkly decorations and along with that comes beauty products that match the mood. As soon as it started getting properly chilly (mine from my November visit back home), I knew I had to bust out some of my favorite Christmassy colors again!

What can I say, sparkly polish just feels right lately and NYX Las Vegas fits the season perfectly!
