Most Popular Makeup Product Posts of 2015

Liquid Lipstick Review Update: Colour Pop, Milani, sephora, Kat Von D

If I had to define 2015 on Everyday Starlet, I would call it: The Year of Makeup.  I really rediscovered my love (err, obsession) with makeup.  While my makeup tutorials are some of my most popular post (and some of my personal favorites to create as well), my makeup reviews have also been extremely popular with my Starlet readers.  Next week I’ll be sharing my top tutorials, but today I wanted to share the best of my makeup reviews, swatches, and fabulous beauty stuff in general…

My Most Popular Makeup Product Posts of 2015…

10. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Swatches … this was my very first swatch video.  I’m so proud of how it came out (it’s also my most disliked YouTube video… I guess you can’t please everyone)

9. The Perfect Orange Lipsticks For Everyone .. I loved overcoming my fear of orange lip colors this year!

Last week I shared with you my love of Pinterest and my most popular Pinterest boards.  Even though Pinterest will always have my heart, Instagram is a social media unlike any other.  I can’t believe I was once hesitant to jump on the Insta-bandwagon (hey, even Starlet can have questionable judgement from time to time).  Now that I am totally an Instagram addict, I thought I would share with you my most popular photos….

Most Popular Lifestyle Posts of 2015

I have to admit, sometimes I get so caught up in makeup, fashion, and beauty that I just forget about everything else around me.  While Everyday Starlet is mainly a beauty and fashion blog, I like to throw in some Starlet lifestyle posts as well… after all being well-rounded is an important Starlet character trait.  Last week I shared my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015, and next week I’ll be sharing my popular fitness and health posts.  So today I wanted to share my popular posts that focus on food, decor, events, and just generally fabulous things…

Here Are My Most Popular Lifestyle Posts of 2015…

5. StyleWeek Northeast 2015: The Finale … going to Providence StyleWeek was definitely a highlight of 2015.  I covered each day of the event in a separate post, but my coverage of the finale seemed to be a favorite

4. Red Carpet Popcorn for the Oscars … who doesn’t love a glamorized popcorn recipe!

I must confess, I spend a lot of time on social media…. probably more than is healthy.  With all the time I spend on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, I sometimes neglect what is possibly my most favorite social media of all (okay after YouTube)… that’s Pinterest.  When I first joined Pinterest, it was possibly the biggest time suck of my life.  But I did stop buying as many magazines so I figure the money I was saving out weighed the time I was wasting… it’s Starlet logic, just go with it.

Since I started blogging, I have focused much more on my Instagram presence, and promoting myself on Facebook and Twitter.  It seems as if my old friend Pinterest got left behind.  But we’re reconnecting and it seems like old times again! So I thought I would share with you my most active Pinterest boards of 2015…

Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015

Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015 - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Continuing my series of the absolute best Starlet stuff of 2015 (you can see my most popular fashion looks here), I wanted to share my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015.  I decorated a table for each major holiday last year.  Starting from this past Halloween I tried to make each table into a fashion designer themed look.  Some of my tables were actually some of my most viewed posts this year!  Sometimes a vision would come to me, and I would find everything I needed at Michaels and Jo Ann Fabric.  Other times it took a lot of brain power and many shopping trips to get everything to come together.  Either way, it’s all worth it!  So without further ado…

Here are my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015….

5. DIY Rustic Glamour 4th of July Tablescape… I wanted to capture Summer Sophistication with the whimsy of catching fireflies (in the form of fairy lights) in a mason jar

4. Glamorous Pink and Gold Valentine’s Day Tablescape…. vintage romance was my goal with this table

3. Valentino Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape… these pumpkins inspired the whole table!

2. Old Hollywood Glamour Oscars Tablescape…. this table made watching the Academy Awards at home even more glamorous!

1. Kate Spade Halloween Tablescape… This was my very first designer themed table, and it definitely got the best response here on Everyday Starlet and on social media!

I also want to give a shoutout to my most recent (and one of my personal favorite) tables, my Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape

Silver Bells Makeup Look

Silver Bells Makeup Look - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

As a little overweight girl, I used to dream of being a dancer.  Being up on a stage with the costumes and all eyes on me was heaven in my mind.  Alas, my curves detoured me from being a professional ballerina (and the fact that I didn’t take my first dance class until I was a teenager, but that’s another story).  I still take the occasional dance class, and I do Ballet Beautiful workouts regularly, but I probably will never dance in the Nutcracker.  But you know what anyone can to no matter their size, shape, or age… wear makeup!  So I thought I would take this opportunity to do my silver smokey eye/nude lip combo makeup look to the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy… because it’s the holidays, I’m an Everyday Starlet, so why not!  This look is perfect for any Christmas party, holiday event, New Years Eve celebration, or just a fun night out!

I can’t believe it’s almost 2016!  Everyday Starlet has grown so much in the past year, and there’s even more to come!  In the next few weeks I wanted to highlight the very best of ES, starting with my most popular fashion looks from the past year.

I’m always surprised by what looks really take off, but it seems that there are a lot of busty babes out there who can relate to my curvy girl struggles.  I’m also very excited that most of my top fashion looks have been in the past few months.  I’ve been taking a lot more fashion risks and I’ve been loving the direction my style is going in.  It feels great to be getting such a positive response from my fellow Starlets! So without further ado…

Life Lately

Hello Starlets, The Holidays are quickly approaching and life is getting increasingly hectic.  I wanted to check in with you and give you a few Everyday Starlet updates!

First, I have BIG plans for ES that will be coming in the next year!  I’m very excited about them, but I can’t reveal too much too soon (a Starlet always keeps ’em guessing).  As a result of all of these exciting happenings, my posting schedule for ES, my YouTube channel, and my social media may be a little erratic or the next month or so.  Fear not!  This is only so I can focus on some of the new things I have planned for ES and…..

I have a few changes that will be happening soon in my personal life.  Don’t fret, they’re all good.  Be sure to subscribe to my Mailing List, and my YouTube channel, as well as my Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook so you don’t miss any of my Starlet life!

In the meantime, don’t miss my glamorous Christmas gift guide…..

My Birthday was a week ago, and I got the greatest gifts EVER!  PET got me Dita Von Teese’s latest book Your Beauty Mark.  She is my style icon, and I’ve been waiting for this book forever… it did not disappoint! My parents got me the Christian Louboutin lipstick which I’ll test for a full review!!

Christmas Tree Green Makeup Look

Christmas Tree Green Makeup Look - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Christmas is usually all about red lipstick… and believe me, I love me some red lips!  But I wanted to switch up the traditional Christmas makeup look (like the Old Hollywood Glamour Look I did last week) and give green some attention.  So I created this Christmas Tree Green Makeup Look with a dramatic green smokey eye, glowing skin, and a pale nude/pink lip

Here’s what I used so you can shop this Christmas Tree Green Makeup Look:

Note: I filmed this makeup look and took the photos right before I was running off to do a comedy show and I realized right before I left the house that I completely forgot mascara… I think I was so distracted by how beautiful my Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in So Hollywood was that I wasn’t paying attention… that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!
