The Gothic Peacock

I wanted to do a makeup tutorial on my channel for fun, and someone suggested a Gothic look. I loved this idea and found this amazing look on Pinterest.

a240e2d7d1ce8053a16660d846fa349fGorgeous right! I could not do that. I must find out what type of liner the roses have been applied with. So instead I came up with my own look using this as a guide, and it turned out a lot more Peacock than Gothic, and it really didn’t look like her.

So here is what I dubbed the Gothic Peacock!

Products Used

Hip Creme Liner in Black
Hard Candy Eyeshadow Crayon – Gold
LA Colors Eyeshadow Palette
LA Colors Eyeshadow Crayon – Forest Green
ELF Loose Eyeshadow in Dreamy
ELF Shadow in White
Benefit Highbeam Eye Brightener


I totally realized after I uploaded the video that I didn’t put on any mascara. I did on the first eye, but not the one I did in the video. To make this look really actually be pretty, I suggest false lashes. I had some, but no glue. So there it is, the Gothic Peacock. I hope you enjoyed it!!


So while it wasn’t Gothic, it was all me. I apologize for the scary picture at the end, I look sadistic, I promise I am not sadistic. I like sadistic things, I digress. Here are some more Gothic eye looks to end this post on a good note!!




Nail Polish Wars!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I wanted to do something fun, and reach out to others on Youtube. I came up with this idea for nail polish wars which meant I would challenge another Youtuber to a battle. Below is the first one with a Maleficent theme.  I find it hard to find beauty youtubers that will try the nail battle simply because they tell me they aren’t good with nails. I want to battle anyone who wants to take on the challenge. I will let you in on a little secret, I’m not that good with nails either. I just like having fun!!

Videos on Youtube and Going to CVS

I have started making videos on YouTube and I am loving it! I have all these great ideas, and the process of filming, and editing is so much fun! I am doing it for fun, and that is why I am not nervous about it being out there. My sister and boyfriend commented that my background makes me look like a hobo, which is so unfair to hobos everywhere, and my sister wants me to do my face makeup, but I love nail art, and coming up with fun and new stuff.

You can see my What’s in my Bag video here..

I have an American Horror Story nail tutorial uploading somewhere. Anywhoo, I am looking forward to this new journey on YouTube, I also plan to be a lot better posting things here about makeup and pretties! Stay tuned for new posts at least every time I post a video to explain some things better and show pics.

Have an amazing weekend!

Also I have a kind of story about CVS. I went there like I always do to buy makeup I don’t need. The lady said not a word to me the whole time she checked me out, and I stood there awkwardly because I feel like you should at least say hello. It made me uncomfortable, and feel like she was judging my purchases. I’m sure she wasn’t but I just like for my salespeople to talk to me.

Making Bows, Victorious Secrets, New Hair, and New Lipstick!


I finally created a bow for my hair. The picture is upside down. I will take another. Resampled_2013-09-05_12-53-48_984 (1)

Okay so I used the ribbon I bought from Walmart, string, a little hot glue, and a Bobbie pin. It didn’t take long, and I think it turned out pretty cute. If you don’t know I love bows. I have some owl ribbon, some star ribbon, and purple polka dots I will be trying. I also learned that you can make bows and rings out of duct tape, I will have to look into this further.

This brings me to my haircut. The stylist I went to actually knew what she was doing. My hair turned out looking the best it has in years. No longer a bushy blonde and red mess, it is a pretty Auburn color, and flatters my face.  I told her I was grateful to not have a ‘sort of mullet’ anymore and that I would definitely be back.

I got some new lipstick after my appointment and new hairspray, and Redken glass I bought from the Salon. They were out of Big and Sexy so I purchased Garnier Sleek and Shine Anti Frizz Spray.

So apparently I never hit PUBLISH on this, ridonkolous! So I am now, even though I went to the stylist again this morning because it has been that long since I posted a new post. Wow, crazy. So my hair is done again. I bought two new Essie polishes

Mod Square and Penny Talk


Penny Talk does not last long at all, the metallic ones just come off. Love, love, love Mod Square.

I also got a new Revlon Color Burst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical and I like it! Here is a pointy photo of it!



mhh  Looks an awful lot like my old hair, and it’s sideways!
