Seven Deadly Sins Makeup Collab

Let us jump back to November because let’s face it – I’m somewhat terrible at posting stuff sometimes. I’m working on it, though, so here we go. /insert time travel noise here. The wonderful and hella creative MUA, Hazel (@hazelsheartxo) invited me to join a collab she was orchestrating with the theme of Seven Deadly Sins. Now, before you jump on me with it being overdone – I have to disagree. Everyone has their different take on it and I always find it interesting to see how each individual person comes up with their own twist. I received the prompt of GREED… and then my head exploded with ideas going in all directions. It was kind of frustrating because I had a hard time narrowing it down on what I wanted to do… but in the end, this is what I went with. Something dark and somewhat enticing because let’s face it…

DIY Matcha Face Mask ft. Pure Leaf Matcha Tea + Review / Influenster #PureLeafHomeBrew

Tea is tasty. I have dedicated TWO whole drawers in my kitchen to my tea stash so when Influenster was like “Yo! Do you want to review some tea?” I was like HECK YES I DO! So they did, and here we are! I received two different kinds of matcha from Pure Leaf; Pure Leaf Matcha Pure (aka plain) and Pure Leaf Matcha Ginger. Realizing that this was the first post and video for the new year, I decided that it should be a bit different so… DIY TIME it is! This DIY is fairly simple and is right up there with the LUSH face masks that I occasionally buy when I’m in need of a little retail therapy pampering, but before I get into it – lemme talk about the tea. MATCHA! — PURE LEAF MATCHA TEA — Each container contains 12 (1 gram, each) sachets. The tea is derived from single…

Oh Hai There. I’m Back… again! // Vlog + Life Update December 2017

Oh geez. A lot has happened between my last post and now, but I think I’ll save the recap for later. Right now, I’d like to announce that my YouTube channel is rising back up from the dust *(and moldy food you left under the bed) just in time for Christmas! Anyways, for now here’s the brief Twitter rundown of what’s been happening: Mr got a job,  we had to fix up and then sell our house, moved 1500+ miles, lived in a tiny temporary apartment for two months, bought a house just in time, moved in, and now we’re fixing it up. How have you been!? Are you ready for the makeup tutorial that’s coming tomorrow? Tell me all about what’s been going on with you in the comments below! Also, while you’re down there go ahead and let me know what you would like to see from me…

Golden Child // #MOTD // @ohjaechaos

There is something about the color gold that looks AMAZING with brown eyes, don’t ya think? Especially if those eyes have a little bit of green to them that the gold can accentuate and pull out center stage. I have this long blonde wig that I rarely ever wear because it is Rapunzel-length long and it always gets tangled… BUT during my recent foray into making my Instagram feed a little prettier – I’ve been doing a color order thing… or at least I was in the middle of doing a color thing until May came around and then it was all PURPLE PURPLE PURPLE for Lupus Awareness Month. I may pick it back up again. It did help to keep me on my makeup toes when I would have the energy to do my makeup.  Plus, you have to admit that it looks quite pretty. To be completely honest, summertime is…

Dewy Skin & Faux Freckles Tutorial // Fake Freckles 101 // @ohjaechaos

One of the most requested tutorials is here, dah’lings! Now you, too, can create realistic faux/fake freckles and fool everyone. /Cue the fanfare! 

Before I go into the details, and a few more tips and tricks that I forgot to talk about in the tutorial, I wanted to express my love for faux (or fake) freckles. As some of you might notice during my live streams – I have a lot of scars and a few acne spots on my face. I’m okay with them. They’re not my favorite, but they are mine. For the longest time, I would just cake on the most coverage foundation I had in hopes to cover them… but I’ve started to ease up with the cake face and opt for an easier (and more awesome) way — by adding some faux freckles. Smattering the freckles on my face does help to disguise any texture, spots, or hyperpigmentation… and it looks cute.

Growing up, I would always get the summer freckles on my cheeks and shoulders. I freckle if I’m out in the sunlight but since I’ve had to restrict my time out in the Big Day Ball, due to spoonie complications – I cheat. Freckles are beautiful, plain and simple. I hope that if you are reading this and you have freckles, please cherish them. They’re awesome.

And now… let’s get into it. IT’S FRECKLE TIME!

Real Talk: The 5% of Me – Social Media Vs. #SpoonieLife // @ohjaechaos

Fun fact: IRL me and the “me” you see on social media are two different people. Big shocker, right?!? Over the years, I have made a conscious effort to stay as positive and uplifting on social media as I can… but the truth is it gets tiring and it is costing me more spoons than I have. Over the last half of a year or so, my Spoonie life has started to go down hill. I found out that I have Fibromyalgia on top of the other goodies that my body has so graciously gifted to me… and with Mr. Chaos’ abrupt layoff from his job (of almost ten years)… the shit has been piling on [being an adult frakkin’ sucks] and we cannot seem to catch a break. With that has gone my ability to keep up with posting content consistently, whether it’s been here on the blog, on my YouTube channel, or…

First Impressions: Eylure Brow Products // @ohjaechaos

A couple of weeks ago,  I was sent a little package from Eylure (via Obviously Social) to try out some goodies and post a few photos on Instagram. The package was full of new and shiny brow products and a couple of pairs of classic Eylure lashes. I figured I should get off my duff and write up a little first impression review of the new(ish) / new to me brow products that Eylure has recently released. Now, before I go any further I want to let you know while my Instagram posts were sponsored… but this review isn’t, and as always when I review products, all views are 100% my own.  In the box, I received: The Brow Control and Shape Gel Eyebrow Brush and Wand Brow Luminizer Pencil Brow Palettes in Blonde, Medium Brown, and Dark Brown Brow Pencils in Blonde, Medium Brown, and Dark Brown False Lashes in…

FAVORITES: Spring 2017 Edition // @ohjaechaos

*What’s that?* *… a wild favorites video has appeared out from behind the bushes!* Ooooh, Dah’lings. I know that I said in my last YouTube video (aka Chats with Chaos ep. 1), I said that I’d be more active on my YT channel… well – life has been a turd, and my spoons have been sparse but guess what?!? I filmed a springtime favorites video for you. Keep in mind; this video is about 39 minutes long. Grab a snack, sit in a comfy chair, and let’s do this!!! Did somebody call for a ‘lock? (Swipe to see non-shopped makeup photo) 🔮🔮🔮🔮🔮 Makeup Details: @beccacosmetics First Light Priming Filter, @milkmakeup Blur Stick, @makeupforeverus Ultra HD Stick Foundations in Y215 and Y225, Aqua XL pencil in M10 and M80, @tartecosmetics Shape Tape Concealer in Fair Neutral, @occmakeup John Doe Creme Colour Concentrate, @katvondbeauty Tattoo liner in Trooper, Lock It Blotting…

Lavender Hair and Marvel Wear // #OOTD // @ohjaechaos

Let me start off by saying this: I’m not one for OOTDs. Normally, I wear the SAME type of outfit – EVERY DAY! You may ask what it is – and I’ll tell ya because it’s simple: A nerdy t-shirt or tank top from JORDANDENE, jeans, and my Vibram FiveFinger shoes… if it’s cold there will be a coat or flannel, but that’s it. I’m pretty basic on the daily, and that’s okay. 

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer – Influenster VoxBox Product Review #ElevateYourFoundation // @ohjaechaos

Howdy. I have another review for you all, which you probably already realized since the whole title of this post INCLUDES the giveaway word… of “review.” Ha. I’m sarcastic today… you’re welcome. Anyways, I wanted to talk to you a little bit about the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. [FULL DISCLAIMER: I received this product, for reviewing purposes, from Influenster. If you are unfamiliar with Influenster, click here.]  So as the clever (*cough* obvious) title of the product says, this is a mineral foundation primer. Mineral makeup products are made with natural-made minerals such as iron oxides, talc, zinc oxides, etc. It doesn’t contain a whole lot of filler ingredients nor does it tend to contain emollient oils and waxes, fragrance, and preservative ingredients found in conventional formulations. Some say that mineral makeup is better, but I leave that up to you. Everyone’s skin and preferences are different. I don’t know about you, but anytime…

Replacing the Old & Busted with NEW HOTNESS!

Flashback to 2015: My YouTube channel was just a wee baby zygote and the mighty overlords at YouTube released the Channel Trailer function. I wanted to make my channel look all fancy… so I pieced together a little channel trailer with the few videos that I had under my belt. It was crude, the beat of the whole video was nonexistent, and it didn’t really flow with my style… but at the time, I THOUGHT IT WAS AWESOME! Since then, I ended up accidentally forgetting about that little video while my channel started to blossom, content wise. You don’t really see it unless you are a new visitor to my channel and since I’m obviously NOT one of those, it just sat there…. until it dawned on me that HOLY FRAK I have a channel trailer that is WAAAAAAY outta date. Thankfully, by the time I started to work on it…

YSL The Shock Volumizing Mascara // Influenster #ShockTheWorld

Almost two months ago I received another Influester VoxBox. This time it was for the brand new Yves Saint Laurent Mascara called “The Shock!” Now with the campaign coming to a close, I decided to sit down and write up a full review of it since I have been using it for a good long while. So here we go.   You might recall that YSL released another mascara last year that ended up flopping – BADLY. So much so that they even recalled it from stores. It was called the Vinyl Couture Colorful Mascara, and I wasn’t a huge fan of it, and I completely understand why they recalled it… but I’m getting off topic. I’m not 100% sure but I think that The Shock is the revamped, reformulated version of the Vinyl Couture Mascara. While the new one doesn’t come in more than three shades, the formulation is…

Hermione Granger Cosplay Makeup Tutorial // #13DaysOfHalloween // @ohjaechaos

This should come as no surprise to you, my Dah’lin, but I am a HUGE Harry Potter nut. I gobbled up the books and the movies and the first character who I connected to was Hermione Granger. I was a brainiac (sometimes brown-nosed know-it-all), and she was one too. Granger is one of my FAVORITE go-to cosplays. I figured “What the heck. Why not throw in something for the Potterheads?” So I did. Muwah ha ha ha ha. Just remember, It’s LeviOsa… not LevioSA! Am I the only one who thought that Hermione could go into both Gryffindor and Ravenclaw houses? Apparently, her bravery and boldness were the reason why she was sorted into Gryff. I was sorted into Gryff, too, but always felt that I could go either way. I guess that worked out in the end…  IF you want to save some $$$ while you level up your…

Orphan Black: HELENA Cosplay Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days Of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

Don’t mess with my Sestras! If you are a fan of the series, Orphan Black, you probably know that Helena takes the cake in the psychotic department but has a heart of gold. I wanted to kick off my Orphan Black Clone Club series with her because she’s my favorite… and I can. Cosima is a close second, but I don’t have an appropriate wig for her just yet, so… her tutorial will come, in time.  Anyways… last weekend was Wizard World Tulsa, and I was planning to go, but my chemo infusion was this past Monday so that through a wrench in my plans. Had I gone, this was going to be one of my three cosplay looks for the con. I decided to share my tutorial with you guys for the 13DoH… and here we are. I know I’ve kinda fallen off the bandwagon with the daily tutorials. Being a…
