Beauty: Deck of Scarlet Makeup Palette @deckofscarlet #scarletlooks #beauty #makeup


Happy Monday, again! I hope you’re enjoying spring wherever you are in the world, although, that might mean fall or Autumn in some places of the world!

I came across a cool beauty subscription on Instagram called Deck of Scarlet . You can sign up on the website, if you think it’s something you would love and use. The price of signing up for the subscription is worth it. Most makeup palettes of this quality are so much more money.



Deck of Scarlet’s makeup quality is amazing, vegan, cruelty free, and all those wonderful things that mean the makeup is organic, natural, and better for your skin. I love that this subscription is a palette and not separate beauty products alone.



When you can find makeup that also has excellent pigment and provides you an entire makeup look, or series of looks, in one palette of eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, lip color, and eyeliner and lip liner, as part of the package — this is a smart conceptan excellent makeup subscription service.




Lip Liner


Eyeliner


Not only do subscribers receive a new ‘look’ or possibilities of looks, to play withevery two-months, but they have the choice to skip a month, if they don’t like the palette. If you don’t like it, you skip and don’t pay anything.

The only downside for some people, is remembering to click into the email or visit the site and skip a palette, if you wish. But actually, June’s palette is pretty awesome too. This makeup palette’s from April and contains “exotic . . . Bora Bora hues.”



The other neat thing about this subscription is the makeup tutorials provided by the bloggers who joined up to create these high-quality and on-trend looks for subscribers bi-monthly. The tutorials are what hooked me, I couldn’t get the same look with what I had at home.

The quality of The Deck of Scarlett Palette’s is what will keep me purchasing makeup palette’s every two months, should most of the palette colors be ones that I can use; and should the tutorials remain relevant to me.

Also, if your vacationing somewhere, this is the perfect low-maintenance and space-saving makeup palette to bring with you for an easy everyday and evening look all in one. Add some mascara, CC cream, and concealer and your set.


Eyeshadows (on top) – Starry Eyed, Bora Bora, and Bronzed.

Highlighter/Eyeshadow – Roxstar

Blush – Lovesick


If you want a bit more makeup or your skin tone is more fair, black eyeliner to tight-line on your upper water-line, and a bit of pink-lipstick and (or) gloss, to mix with either lip shape provide is great.


Lip colors– Smooch and Swept Away


P.S. This isn’t a paid promotion, I just love the Deck of Scarlet palettes. They are seriously amazing!

Beauty: The Messy Lived in Bun


Kate, from The Small Things Blog in a Messy Bun (www.thesmallthingsblog.com)

If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know one of my favourite beauty and lifestyle bloggers is Kate from The Small Things Blog. She does some awesome makeup tutorials as well as her forte, wonderful and easy to follow hair tutorials. Kate used to be a hairstylist before she had her two lovely baby boys.If you have mid- length to longer hair and you have second-day hair, or you want to throw-up your first day hair into a wonderful messy bun, here are a couple of YouTube videos by Kate on how to get the perfect messy bun. The second video works best for me, but you might find her most recent method better for your hair. It is up to you 🙂

To make texture in my own hair for a messy bun, I will often tease the hair at the crown of my head with a salon brand of dry shampoo (such as Bedhead or Scruples) and a rat-tail comb. I also use Unite Texture Spray to give my hair more volume, texture, and a lived in messy look, followed by more teasing at the sides and underneath of my hair. 

You can curl or make waves in your hair before you make your messy bun, as Kate often does, but as long as you make your hair a mess with products, such as the two I suggested, I don’t find curling your hair or making waves before is necessary if you have straight hair. If your hair doesn’t stay in a messy state and begins to fall before you put it up into a bun you might want to use hairspray such as Davon’s Strong Hairspray (which you are still able to comb out) before you put your hair up. A light mist will do. As well as a mist over your hair when you are finished styling your hair into a messy bun.

Generally, the messy bun is a hairstyle you want to be able to do fast, to get the hair out of your face, or to do a hairstyle that still looks nice but is able to be done on hair that won’t do much else. A messy bun is a style that works well if you have small children, but it is also stylish enough to do to go have dinner with a friend or another couple.

Please watch these two wonderful messy bun tutorial videos below by Kate. If you can’t see the videos when you receive my blog in your email, you will have to go into my blog to see the videos, or click the links provided above the videos to go right to Kate’s blog page of the tutorial.
