My Easy Every Day Makeup

Lighting helps too! ūüôā¬†

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!!!!!!

I hope everyone is having a drink (or 3) and enjoying their Friday!

I am going to be showing and talking about the few products I have been using everyday for an easy daily look.

primer

 

I start with this lovely primer! I got this in a Sephora Play box which is why it is a sample size. I have been loving a more glow look lately and this really helps with that. You can buy full size here for $38.

CC+

 

I really love BB and CC creams. This CC+ from It cosmetics is amazing. It is your skin but better so it is not heavy but great coverage. Plus that SPF 50+ is outstanding! Can purchase it here or here for $38.

 

#7

 

This has been my 2nd go to. I will alternate between the two since they are both your skin but better. I love that this is a dropper! IT is a bit more expensive for a “drugstore” foundation. You can find it¬†here¬†or¬†here¬†for $17.99. It is the airbrush formula.

 

undereye concealer

I love this for my under-eyes right now! I love some other ones but this one has been doing the job and it is drugstore! This is the Maybelline superstay better skin. (is lighter than pic is showing) You can find it here for $6.79. I like the Fit me one as well!

 

spot concealer

I got this in a birchbox again why it is a sample size. This is what I use for any spots that need some extra coverage. You can buy full size here for $32. I really like the formula for blending.

 

setting powder.jpg

 

I have been using this as my setting powder. It is cheap and lovely! It comes in a loose formula as well which works just as good and even better for baking. I like this one for traveling and my handbag. You can find it here for $6.

brow pencil

This little gem is great for brows. It is the It cosmetics universal brow powder pencil. You can find it here for $24.

inside palette

 

This is actually a contour palette but I use it for shadows instead. I take 1 & 2 together to create a nice brown to cover my veins on my eyelid and to give it some color that looks natural. I take the #3 and use it as a brow highlight because I don’t like to much highlight on my brow bone so this color is just enough. You can find it¬†here¬†for $21.

 

shadow

 

This beautiful shade is what I add on my lid to add a little shimmer. It is just enough to brighten up your tired eyes. You can get it here for $19.

 

eye pencil

In my bottom waterline I use a nude color to make my eyes appear more awake. I love this trick. Any nude would work. ( I am not sure where I got this)

eyeliner

This is what I use on my bottom lash line for liner. Not in my water line but on the lash line. It is in the color expresso from Smashbox. They don’t have the crayon formula like this anymore. Sorry!

 

I use two mascaras because I can! haha I use this one for bottom and this one for top! Bottom is $25 and top is $12.

bronzer

 

This is a great bronzer from Revoultion Makeup. I love it! You can find it here for $7. You should check out some of their other stuff too!

 

 

blush

I got this in an ipsy bag. It is from City color and my #1 is called blackberry because it is more of a purple. I could not find this palette but here are the matte blushes ( the colors are not the same but there is a good selection.

 

highlighter

Lastly, I have been using this highlighter from Laura Geller in “gilded Honey” It is just enough golden highlight. You can find it¬†here¬†for $26.

 

I of course finish off with a setting spray! ūüôā

March Ipsy “17

march ipsy

Hello Darlings!

March’s Ipsy bag is not that impressive as you can see from the picture above. I do like that the bag is shaped differently.

march ipsy concealer

This first item is a dark spot corrector concealer from City Color. It’s a creamy formula that at first impression seems to be hard to work with it. I will need to put this to the test with a brush.

march ipsy blush

This item is a blush from “So Susan”. It’s a blush & Glow luminizing Blush in the color rose rust. It really is a rusty rose color with some shine to it but no glitter which is a plus!

march ipsy serum

This is a collagen serum from Mint Pear. It is used morning & night so I will have to put this to good use and see if I notice anything.

march ipsy lip paint

 

You have heard me talk all about these lip paints from Tarte in the past and I love them. This is in the color: delish which I don’t think I have. This will be a nice addition to my collection. It is a pretty mauve rose/brown.

march ipsy brush

Lastly, is a blending brush from “skone” I have never heard of them before. I will have to put this to use and see if it is a good brush. By the feel of it it seems nice but it sheds.

What did you get in your bag? Did you like what you got?

Weekend Recap 3-13

IMG_0939

Hello Darlings!

How was your Weekend? Mine was spent just as you see in the picture above.

It would seem allergies this year are really kicking my ass! Jake and I spent the weekend laying around ( I have been coughing my ass off for like 2 weeks! annoyed all ready) We finally finished Jessica Jones on Netflix and began watching Lucas Cage. We are huge Marvel fans But we have never read a comic book lol. We are trying to get them watched before Iron fist comes out this week!

My drink of choice this weekend for my cough was the ingredients above! haha It seems to help better than the over-the-counter meds I picked up.

What do you like to do when you feel like crap?! Any home remedies you love?! Are you a Marvel fan?

Weekend Recap

Hello Darlings!

How was everyones weekend? I suppose some of you might still be enjoying a long weekend with Today being President’s day.

The weekend came and went by real quick for me. I swear last week was really long and then finally Friday came and before I knew it Monday was here.

Saturday started off running errands like normal so we could enjoy Sunday more. I did try out that mascara I got in my Ipsy bag I talked about¬†here¬†and I am not impressed. I know it was only a two day test but it’s not something I will reach for when I want to look my best.

It does give the lashes a nice coating and it does take an extra minute to take it off at night since it is a waterproof. Who knows though sometimes I end up not caring for something to later go back to it and love it. I will give it a few days (maybe a week) to dry out a little and then give it another go.

Saturday night we did go out for sushi at one of our favorite¬†places¬†called Tsubaki Sushi & Hibachi. They don’t have a website so I linked their FB page and it may not look like much but the best places are usually in the least likely spots. If you are in the Oklahoma City area and enjoy sushi I recommend giving it a go!

Sunday we had a few items to pick up from the store for the week and that was it. The rest was just a lazy Sunday.

What did you do this weekend? Did you have a long weekend? If you are in the OKC area what places would you recommend for any kind of anything?

Maybelline Influenster

Hello Darlings!

Did everyone have a great Halloween? We didn’t really do anything this year.

I am ready for the holidays coming up next! It will be nice to enjoy a tiny vacation.

A few weeks ago I received a package for received to try out this 2 SuperStay 24 color lip wear.

The 2 color I got where constant toast ( light pink) and Keep up the flame (red). I am not much for reds so I gave it to a friend.

I tried on the pink one a few times hoping for better results each time. I sadly was not a fan of these.

From far away they look great but up close it was dry, flakey, and felt awful on lips. I wasn’t even able to get the¬†gloss (moisturizer) side on before it turned patchy.

I was able to see every line in my lips which I was not a fan of.

I think there are better long-wear liquid lips out there. I love colorpop and KatVonD liquid lips.

I did see some people liked this so of course this is just my opinion.

Happy Monday!

xoxo
