MOTD: Modern Grunge 

I pulled out my Carli Bybel x BH Cosmetics Deluxe Edition palette to create today’s makeup look! I also added a bright yellow/green winged liner to add a pop of color to a typical grunge-y makeup look.

Keep scrolling to see more pics of the look I created and, as always, a full list of products that I used.


  • Primed my eyes with Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
  • Used the Carli Bybel x BH Cosmetics Deluxe Edition palette for my entire eye look (except the liner). I used the two warm brown shades in the crease, deep purple on the outer corners, and metallic purple shade all over the lids.
  • Applied a coat of Essence Lash Princess mascara (black and blue tube)
  • NYX Vivid Brights liquid liner in shade Vivid Escape
  • Ardell “Demi Whispies” lashes
  • Marc Jacobs black eyeliner pencil


  • Used Tarte Shape Tape concealer shade light/medium as a foundation
  • Tarte Shape Tape concealer in light sand to conceal
  • Set the face with Wet N Wild Photo Focus finishing powder in tan beige
  • Set under eye area with Essence matte setting powder
  • Bronzed my skin with NYC Sunny matte bronzer
  • Contoured with the Fiona Stiles contour powder in Ahiko
  • For blush I used a light cool toned pink shade from the BH Cosmetics Nude Blush Palette
  • Highlighted using the pink highlight shade from the Carli Bybel x BH Cosmetics palette
  • Filled in my brows only using the Essence Make Me Brow brow mascara (dark shade). I did not want to fill in my brows too much so that they had a messy and feathered look.


  • Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Stunning
  • NYX Butter Gloss in Madeleine overtop


MOTD: Metallic Cobalt Blue Halo Eyes

I used the Juvia’s Place Masquerade palette and the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette to create this bold eye look today! This is by far one of my favorite looks that I have created so I hope y’all like it just as much as I do!

  • For primer, I used the Smashbox Studio Skin concealer
  • In the crease, I layered shades Sauced and Cayenne from the UD Naked Heat palette. I used these same shades to smoke out my bottom lash line as well.
  • I applied the shade Chi (metallic cobalt blue) from the Juvia’s Place Masquerade palette all over my lid. I used my finger to apply the shade Giza from the same palette in the center of my lid to create a halo eye effect. I used the same technique on my bottom lash line, but did not smoke these shades out too much.
  • Sephora crayon eyeliner in “My boyfriend’s jeans” (metallic cobalt blue shade) in the water line.
  • Curled my lashes and applied a coat of Essence I Love Volume mascara to my top and bottom lashes.
  • Applied a pair of Ardell Demi Whispies


  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade 128)
  • Smashbox Studio Skin (light/warm) and Tarte Shape Tape concealer (light sand)
  • Set my face with Essence matte setting powder
  • Bronzed my skin with the Covergirl True Blend bronzer in 200 bronze
  • BH Cosmetics Nude Blush palette (neutral shades)
  • BH Cosmetics Spotlight Highlighting palette (shades Dream and Glow)


  • ABH Dipbrow Pomade in medium brown
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi
  • Wet N Wild lip gloss in “Ring My Bellbottoms” (sheer gloss with gold reflects)


Pink & Violet Smokey Eye

One of my favorite eyeshadows EVER is Star Violet from MAC, so I wanted to do a look inspired by this shadow. I used Star Violet all over the lid and deepened up the outer corners and crease of my eyes using the purple shades from the Carli Bybel + BH Cosmetics palette. This eyeshadow will look absolutely gorgeous with any eye color too!

Brows & Lips

  • For brows, I filled them in using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown. I wanted my brows to look a little messier than usual- this is kind of trending now.
  • For lips I used the Revlon lipstick in the shade Mauvy Night and dabbed a little bit of Maybelline’s Blushing Beige in the center of my lips to create a soft ombre effect.


Everyday Glam Makeup (feat. the Carli Bybel Palette)

I finally did a look using the BH Cosmetics & Carli Bybel eyeshadow and highlight palette! I know this palette has been out for a while, but it recently became available on (I am not sure if it is available in-stores) and I have been using it almost everyday since! The palette is only $14.50 but the quality of the shadows and highlighter shades are AMAZING! The packaging is also thin, lightweight, and has a good sized mirror so it is great for traveling.

This has been my go-to makeup look recently and I definitely recommend picking up this palette if you do not have it already!
