Easter Sunday Makeup!

How many of you are getting together with family or friends on Sunday? Heading to church to celebrate Easter? Have you put any thought into what makeup you’ll wear? Well I have! Easter Sunday is a bright and beautiful day, usually when women wear a pretty, colorful dress, and their daughters wear white gloves and bonnets. Okay, I’ll admit…this was my childhood, but what’s cuter than a little girl in white gloves and a bonnet??

Anyway, Easter is a time to celebrate. The day is often associated with bright and beautiful colors. Pastel pinks, purples, yellows and greens. Here are a few beauty products that would make your Easter complete!

Above: Pastel Pop Eyeshadow Palette by Sephora!

A sweet palette of eight eye shadows in matte, shimmering, and sparkling formulas.

Give your Easter look a dreamy, sparkling touch with this palette of pastels that can easily be mixed and matched. The collection includes four matte powders that can be worn alone or as a base, and four sparkling top coats that add a dazzling, radiant finish!

Not into pinks? What about this gorgeous purple palette from Lancome!

 Natalie’s Beauty Review:
I was able to somehow convince my friends daughter to take a box of products and try them all out. She let me know what products she loved and which ones were a bit lacking.

I loved the black nail polish, especially because it went on so nicely. I recieved tons of compliments on it but all minus 3 fingers had chips in them. Despite the chips I would definitely take the time to paint my nails again with this same color the next day. The silver glitter chunky nail polish was a perfect match to go with the black following the trendy different colored middle finger.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Opulent Lacquer Trio $18
A set of mini nail polish trios with glamorous colors, rich metallic finishes, and multidimensional textures.

Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. These limited-edition nail lacquers are packaged in complementary trios, combining beautiful shades with eye-catching finishes: metallic, sparkle, and metallic-matte. Use each lacquer solo or combine these beauties for unique nail designs all your own.


I liked the Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss because it added a nice pink tint to my lips as well as a smooth feeling.

Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss $8
Swirls of two ultra-high-shine, shimmery shades combine in this limited-edition marbleized formula.


Mark Lash All You Want has become one of my favorite mascaras, it was extremely easy to get the look of nice long lashes. I usually get clumps in my lashes but i haven’t gotten a single clump with this mascara and it really lengthened my lashes.

Mark Lash All You Want $10
Lash All You Want mascara adds 20 times the volume to lashes!! Unique brush has bristles at the tip to get at the tiniest lashes.

If you’re looking for a mature look in eye liners, the Sephora + pantone universe brown eye liner (pencil) would be the one, it was a nice color and fitting for everyday use. the only draw back I saw was the pencil would dull very easily when being used.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Foiled Waterproof Eyeliner Set $30
A set of six highly pigmented, mega-metallic, waterproof eyeliners. Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. The smooth formula contains polymers that effortlessly glide on color and lock pigment in place with a waterproof seal, and the ultra-creamy texture is perfect for blending or creating a precise, stylized line.


I enjoyed the Clairol Smooth hair cream because my hair had virtually no frizz the next morning (i used it at night), my hair was easy for me to work with an extremely soft. I really liked how it looked the next day, just the natural look of my hair was great and I received a lot of compliments.
