Mini Haul

Mini Haul

Hello everyone, I hope all is well. I know a haul right before Christmas might seem mad… but when shopping for others I get so side tracked.

Well without too much rambling. I went to three stores CVS, Sephora (of course) and Lush.
Because I’m an addict and need professional help. #shopperanom

From CVS I picked up:
The Creme Shop Snowman Sheet Mask $2.99
Elf angled liner brush $5.00
Invisibobble Hair ties $7.00

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Sephora:
The Tarte Scrub Clean kit (just because I’m a sucker for minis) $12.00

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

And Lush:
Magic Wand $8.95

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Like I said this was a super mini haul!

Question of the day should I do a post on what I receive for Christmas?

Purple Makeup Look:

Hello everyone.. I hope all is well. I cannot believe summer is flying by! ( I’m not ok with this.)

Today, I was inspired to do a beautiful light purple makeup look. I wanted something bright and shiny, with tons of shimmer!IMG_3485

Starting out with my face makeup:
Benefits Porefessional Face Primer 
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Color Correct Cushion Wonder ( I don’t know how I feel about this product yet!)
MAC Cosmetics Foundation mixed with Estee Launder Double Wear Foundation
MAC Cosmetics Concealer (On my acne and scars)
Anastasia Contour Kit (Under eyes with light and around my face with the dark)
Elf High Definition Powder (For baking under my eyes)
MAC Cosmetics Foundation Powder
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush 
Tarte Pro Glow Palette  
(For my highlighter)IMG_3488

Eyebrows:
MAC Cosmetics Eye Liner (Coffee)
Elf Eyebrow Kit
Anastasia Concealer (Carve out my eyebrows)
Anastasia Brow Gel IMG_3489

Now to the main event… My eye makeup:
-Starting out I used the Too Face White Chocolate Chip palette, taking shade Cake Batter all over my lid.
-Taking Mac’s shade Cork in my crease.
-Continuing in my crease I used Mac’s Black Berry. (Remember to blend, blend, and blend.)
-Back to the Too Face palette I used Sugared Raisin all over the lid.
-Using Satellite Dreams from Mac in the outer corner, I blend it towards the middle of my lid.
– Switching over to the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself palette I take the highlight shade in the middle and place it on the middle of my lid and blend it out. As well as on my eyebrow and the inner corner of my eye.
-Taking Lorac Liquid Liner to make my wing.
-Finally I added a few coats of Essence Lash Princess after using an eyelash curler.

Just a disclaimer I didn’t have a set look in mind when I started… So, you do not need these exact shades!-

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself First Look

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself First Look

Hey everyone! I hope you all have been super well. I’m coming to you with a first look on the new Tarte Make Believe in Yourself.

The color selection is beautiful, there is a good mix between neutral and “fashion” colors. There are ten shades of eye shadows around the palette and one cheek shade in the center. The pigment pay off is really good. Nine of the shadows are shimmery and one is matte (Myth). The cheek shade is definitely a highlight shade.tarte4

Starting with the matte Myth and working clockwise:tarte1tarte3

This is the time I’m going to throw in that the palette also smells amazing! Just like cocoa!

The packaging is well-made. There is a large mirror and a beautiful piece of art on the front.tarte2

My next post will involve a makeup look from this palette as well as a much more in-depth review on how the colors actually perform. If you have any other comments or concerns don’t be shy, just leave them in the comments below! Lets chat.

Question of the day- Would anyone like a review on these products?

Tarteist Pro Glow

Hey everyone! In my last post I got the Tarteist Pro Glow Pallet. A few of you were interested in a review and I’m very happy to oblige! First let me tell you how I would “grade” a makeup product: Quality, packaging, price, color choice, versatility and how often I would actually use the product. Seems like a lot for just “makeup” but I feel like if your going to add something to a well picked makeup collection it better be worth it!

Quality: The color pay off is beautiful! There is not a lot of fallout or dust if you will. A little goes a long way. These highlighters are buildable and blendable

Packaging: The packaging gets an ‘A’ for sure. Its matte with gold writing, I’m mean how chic. It’s very well made and has a different type of packaging compare to most face palettes which makes me very happy!

Price: Well this product is around the $45 dollar mark. Pricey yes but I believe with six colors its worth it.

Color choice: The color choice is amazing! They are beautiful. You get four highlight shades in very different tones. You also get a creme contour shade as well as a lighter powder contour shade! I think that’s a bonus.

Versatility: I could wear these colors with everything! Six colors mean lots of versatility.

How often will I actually wear this palette? Well so far I’ve only owned this pallet for a six days and I’ve used it everyday! Id say I’m going to wear it very often.tarteistopen

My final thoughts is that this product is completely worth it. Especially if your just starting out or like to keep your collection small this is perfect. I really love my Tarteist pro glow, I think you will too!

If you have questions comment below, we’ll talk! Also whats your favorite highlighters?

Easter Basket Goodness

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Easter, I know I did.

I’m absolutely stunned at the love and generosity my family showed this year. I woke up Sunday morning, went downstairs and boom! My parents really went overboard with my Easter basket and I could not be more thankful. They are extremely supportive with everything I do, they told me I could use these products on my blog. My heart just melted! So I figured I would share what I got with you all. Sort of like a written haul. (Also, a disclaimer for you all, this is by no means a way to brag.)
