Hey y’all! It’s been a while, and I’m so sorry! If you want to keep up with me on the daily, I invite you to check out my snapchat at cianicoleking or my Instagram at nicolekinghall. I’m WAYYYY better at posting there for right now. Anyway! This is a look that will wow your friends, but takes no time at all.  There isn’t even any line involved! I used the Jaclyn Hill palette by Morphe to smoke out my eye, then added lashes for some drama. Hope y’all like this look! Let me know what you want to see in the future.


Hey loves! This is probably the #1 request I get for tutorials after makeup. So here it is! This is how I get my big southern hair everyday. Pro tip: Keep Batiste Dry Shampoo handy, and you’ll have to do this once or twice per week. So easy to freshen up in the morning with a little dry shampoo at the roots.  Products and video link are below 🙂

OMG my first ever hair tut!

hey loves! I can’t get enough of the Jaclyn Hill palette so I used it again today for this look.  I used some of the matte red-browns on my lids for a soft cat eye effect. I used the shimmery teal/green shades to line my under eyes for an extra pop of color. On my lips I used Clinique’s cocoa peach lip liner, and layered coral pop matte lipstick on top. check back soon for a new youtube! filming starts tuesday ❤

I think we can all agree that most animals are cooler than most humans. As much as I love makeup, I love little fur babies even more. I’m trying to educate myself on which brands are cruelty free so that I can make responsible purchases. If you want to learn more about cosmetics and cruelty free lines, check out this blog post!

Welcome back friends! I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about a very controversial and difficult subject…animal testing in the cosmetic industry. This post was very hard for me to write but I feel this is an important subject that we should all be talking about. The way I look at it is I have a voice, the animals do not, so why don’t I be their voice! 🙂

WARNING: In this post I will not be posting slaughter videos or cruelty photos. I will be talking about sensitive subjects and some of my information can be a bit graphic. I just hope to spread the word on this horrible practice and if I can educate just one of you and make you think twice I have done my job. In this post I will be posting “happy” photos of wild animals that are commonly tested on in cosmetics…
