Josie Maran Holiday Look & Palette Giveaway!

Hi Bellas,

I'm finally back with another video!  Sorry for the delay.  I was getting over a virus and busy with school, work and the holidays.  This is a holiday tutorial featuring the Josie Maran Eye Love You Palette as well as Brush Lab brushes.  FYI Maran is pronounced Mer-In, lol, I said it wrong a few times.  I actually wore this look for Thanksgiving.  You'll definitely want to check out this post to see a Holiday look that will work all year long, as well as a chance to win one of 3 amazing Josie Maran Eyeshadow Palettes!

In this video, I also feature a new line of makeup brushes from  I'll make sure to review these super cool, modern brushes soon in an upcoming post.
My tutorial features Josie Maran's Eye Love You Palette.  I'm a sucker for anything in palettes, especially eye shadows.  I've featured Josie Maran products in the past, and I've found them to be extremely high quality and the ingredients are pretty amazing.  This palette is no exception.  The Eye Love You Palette was developed to take you from day to night with a variety of colors that suit all complexions.  Though some of the colors are light, they all have a warm shimmer which makes them even appropriate for darker complexions.

The palette is slim and compact but also comes with a huge mirror that's perfect for travel.  I love how the colors aren't overly shimmery...rather they're more of a satin or matte with a bit of shine.  The shadows are also infused with Josie Maran's signature Argan Oil which makes them soft and super buttery - the color is pigmented and super easy to blend.

In this palette you get:
Radiance - soft white pearl shade with a golden shimmer
Crown - soft sky grey with peachy luster
Champagne - champagne pink shimmer
Cabernet - deep purplish wine with a soft gold luster
Feather - pink, grapefruit shade with a sparkling gold shimmer
Adorn - light grape shade with a hint of baby pink
Royal - midnight bluish black with a soft indigo shimmer
Cloak - pitch black, matte midnight with peekaboo silver glitter

This palette retails for $42 at and you can also find it at
