Holiday Look | Gold & Jade Sexy Smoky Eye with Lorac PRO

Hey, girls!

It's so amazing to get back to my blog. I've let school, work, and my personal life consume me for a while now, so blogging has been put on the back burner. I am so sad to admit that, especially since I watch all of my other blogger friends and vloggers that I keep up with moving forward and getting better and better at what they do. Although I am super proud and amazed by the things I see from those girls (and some guys!), I can't help but kick myself every night because I'm not doing something that I love to do. Well, no more! I have a break from school for a little while and since I plan on doing nothing but working, going to the gym, and attempting to become employed by Sephora or Ulta (cross your fingers!), I'll be posting more. 

So, the holidays are finally upon us. Thanksgiving came and went, and here we are on the verge of Christmas. I wasn't ready at first, but as the date comes closer, the more excited I become. I see Christmas decorations everywhere, as I'm surrounded by holiday food and drinks whenever I go out. Most importantly, though, is that I see and experience so many people doing nice things for one another. Seeing the positive and beautiful side of human nature is such an uplifting thing to witness, experience, and be a part of. 

I've been watching and seeing so many Christmas looks that involve reds and golds that I asked myself, "where's the green?!" So... I took out my Lorac Pro Palettes and went to town. I'm so proud of this look, and I think it's PERFECTION for brown eyes. 

Bare with me on the quality of photos as I am on the hunt for a new camera. Any suggestions? 

As usual, all details will be listed at the end of the post. Enjoy!
