Ethereal Sprite: Avant-Garde Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

My Dah’lings, you said it, and I listened. I was honestly a little bit hesitant with this whole look but after a resoundingly positive review from you guys I decided to launch my #13DaysOfHalloween Tutorial series with this mischievous Ethereal Sprite / Avant-Garde makeup look. This look is fairly versatile. All you would need to do to transform it from a sprite to a mermaid would just be to change the color palette that you use and add scales or chunky glitter. I wanted to make this look reasonably accessible to everyone, so all you need is your eye makeup, highlighter, and whatever cream color you’d like. You do not have to have the MUFE Flash Palette if you do not own it. Tons of brands, especially around Halloween, carry cream paints. However, if you are in a pinch, you can always use a cream blusher, lipstick, or an NYX…

Fall-Inspired Makeup Tutorial: Bronzed Olive Cut Crease & Faux Freckles // ohjaechaos

GUYS! GUYS! GUUUUUYS!!!! FALL IS FINALLY HERE!!! I may be just a skosh RIDICULOUSLY excited (and basic) with my enthusiasm, but Fall is my favorite season ever. PERIOD. In light of this most jubious occasion, I have decided to bring you a very appropriate makeup tutorial now that we are beginning to transition from Summer to Fall with this bronzy-olive, sparkly, grungy makeup look-thing. I hope that you enjoy it. This is my favorite look so far for this month, so at least its got that going for it. HOORAY! A note about the look: I was planning on wearing one of my auburn wigs while I was filming, hence the ruddy brows, but I couldn’t get it to cooperate while I was applying my makeup —- so I took it off until I was done. I love how changing up your hair can change the look completely. Wanna see what I’m…

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty 2016: My Picks // @ohjaechaos

It’s September, which means Ulta’s annual 21 Days of Beauty Event. This event features beauty deals STEALS that only come around once or twice a year. If you are a makeup lover, I’m fairly sure you already know what I’m talking about, but if not – these deals are perfect for stocking up on your favorite products for the rest of the year. I’m going to apologize for not posting this sooner, but you know how life has been recently… I’m trying to find my feet still, but at the moment – we’re just taking life a step at a time. With all that aside, here are my picks for the event: September 4th: URBAN DECAY REVOLUTION LIPGLOSS for $11/each instead of $22. I ended up picking up two of these, Kinky and Apocalypse. I wasn’t aware that there is only a 2 per person limit otherwise I would have gotten…

Running Late Makeup Tutorial + College Tips | #IpsyOS B2S Collab // @ohjaechaos

Hello, my Darlings! Thank you so much for hanging out with me for this super-quick tutorial and chat. I hope that those of you who are just starting college or are in college have found this video helpful. I got the hairbrained idea to make the intro of this video a little fun and very much me. Normally, I am a night owl but when I do have to wake up early in the morning — I wait till the last possible instant because let’s face it: I need all the beauty sleep I can get. This look is super easy, and while it isn’t the most avant-garde or grandiosely glamourous look, it gets the job done of hiding the dark circles and helps to make you look a little more put together. I realize that Colourpop’s Adios and 90210 Super Shock Shadows are discontinued — but there are TONS…

Stillness and Stars

Did I ever tell you how much I love gazing up at the stars? Maybe love isn’t strong enough of a word, but when I can go out in the middle of nowhere, away from crowds, away from lights, and city noise… Where I can be immersed in the stillness and silence and look up to see a cacophony of little twinkling lights that are billions and billions of miles away…THAT is one of my happy places.

Some might say that it’s because I was born at night, but I don’t think that’s the reason. See, I grew up outside the city limits of a small town for the majority of my childhood. There were a few houses, but we were surrounded by sheep farm on the back side of the lot and then across the yard was a large ranch/horse farm. It wasn’t Little House on the Prairie, but it was peaceful. Add to that I’m an adventurous tomboy at heart, so I was CONSTANTLY running around the countryside, partially trespassing on the farm lands to get to Rivendell  (which was my secret hideout… I’m a huge LoTR nerd. Are you surprised?), and just having fun. My favorite part of all of that was just going outside and watching the stars.

Fast forward to now and here we are. I live on the outskirts of a fairly decent sized city, with a TON of light pollution. My view of the stars isn’t as nice as it was in my childhood home, but it’s the best one I have so I make due.
