Wednesday Makeup Wish List

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Makeup is always a huge favorite of mine. I have all the makeup I could possibly every need and I still want more. What can I say, I am a girl, makeup is an outlook for me. I love being able to play with makeup and do new looks with different colors and products. I always have an ongoing wish list of multiple things. Today I am sharing my items I am currently wanting. Beware, you may want to spend some money. PS! I am sharing my thoughts on two of my new favorites at the end.

Daily Makeup Routine

Monday, March 13, 2017

Makeup is a hobby of mine, besides shopping and fashion. I love long trips to Ulta and testing new makeup products. I will go ahead and say this I don't wear foundation and rarely concealer. Eyeshadow and lipstick are a major necessity in my makeup routine. Mascara is one of the given needs while putting on makeup. Today I am giving you my mini reviews on each of these products that I love!

Hoola Bronzer is favorite year round. It is a highly rated product from Benefit, many people love using it as a bronzer or even to contour. I personally use it to add some warmth to my face with or without a tan. I am not a pro at contouring, but I try my best to add dimension to my face.

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara will be a top contender of my mascara collection. I have had multiple tubes of this mascara and can say I will always love purchasing it. Lancôme has another mascara favorite of mine, Définicils, which is almost a tie to this mascara.

MAC Cosmetics has some of my most favorite lipsticks ever. I never hesitate the price when purchasing from MAC. I love the color options, textures, and the Vanilla smell is perfect! This color shown is Plumful, which is described as a rosy-plum and pairs great with the Half-Red lipliner from MAC.

Creating the perfect winged eyeliner can be hard unless you have the best eyeliner to do it with. Stila  Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is the best eyeliner I have come by. I have tried multiple others, none compare to this one. I have even tried the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner that is a highly rated one as well, but it still never compared to my Stila one. The Kat Von D made my eyes burn while putting it on if I got too close to my lash line. Stila one lasts all day, easy to apply, easy to take off, and waterproof!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara is a lovely favorite of mine. First, can we state how adorable the packaging is?! It reminds me of hair rollers and is so vintage! This mascara is known for holding the curl all day, which I can say it does! I always curl my lashes before applying coats of mascara. Then using this mascara helps lengthen my lashes and holds the curl!

This is one of the palettes I could not wait to get my hands on! The Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette was the longest for my to have my hands on! I would check my Ulta for it and waited roughly a month till they finally had back in stock! I was able to use my reward points and got almost $21 off!  Ever since I have had this palette, I have been in love! The colors are so unique and different to my Urban Decay Naked palettes. I love the red and plum colors in the palette, they make playing with makeup so much better.

My favorite blush at the moment is something so versatile, that goes with most makeup looks. Benefit Sugarbomb is the perfect blush to carry with you on trips or wearing on a daily basis. The four shades all blend together to a natural color and has the perfect amount of shimmer to add some color to your cheeks.

Urban Decay carries my second favorite lipsticks. This one specific color, Rapture, is one of my most used colors. I can wear is pretty much year round, depending what I wear. It is described as a dusty rose and I loved this color so much I purchased the blush to match! I use this lipstick on days I don't have any eyeshadow or when I use my Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay.

Eyebrows are a big essential when it comes to putting on my makeup. Some days all I wear is mascara and I fix my eyebrows. That is what I MUST put on to exit the house. Anastasia has a great Dipbrow Pomade that has many color options to match. To top off the setting of brows I love the Clear Brow Gel, which I recently got in my Play! By Sephora monthly subscription box. I have used it many times since I got it and love how it sets my brows and keeps them perfectly in place. When they are set, it almost feels like glue in my eyebrows!

Highlighter is becoming a raved product to have. Everyone loves seeing highlighted cheek bones in pictures and makes you glow. I love testing out highlighters and I love the Urban Decay Shimmering Powder for Face and Body. I have two of the colors and love using them. Some people say they have too much glitter, but I love the shimmer payoff they give.

You may ask. All this makeup what do I use to take off my makeup? I use the Makeup Eraser. I have used it roughly for a year now and am obsessed. I have a total of 3, one for a backup, and two to use rotating while one is being washed. Sadly you can't find them at Ulta, but you can at Sephora and Aerie(by American Eagle)! When American Eagle does the 40% off purchase, usually these are included so last time they had that sale I bought two. With just wetting the Eraser, I just wipe off all of my makeup. Once a week or two roughly, just throw it in the washing machine and ready to use again!

Ruffle-Sleeve Top & $60 DUPE

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Since it is finally March, my mind is set on wearing all Spring outfits. I recently went to J.Crew Factory and fell in love with this Ruffle-sleeve top. Not only am I obsessed with the stripes, it is NAVY stripes! Navy is a huge staple item year round in my closet, I can never say no to navy. Which brings me to my favorite purse I have ever carried. My Longchamp, this one is the smallest size in navy, of course.
