I’ve really been missing sharing my favorites! As some of you may remember, I used to post youtube videos. Then I stopped. I’m still getting ready to get back into videos & I’m hoping to be ready for 2017! In the meantime I’ve really wanted to start sharing my favorites again. I’ve done lots of reviews & tutorials lately but favorites let me share updates & seasonal discoveries. I have a ton because I have finally started feeling more like myself this month!

When a new season comes around the bend, most people change things up. Lip colors for summer? Bright & warm! Fall lip colors? Vampy & sultry! Now I’m not saying you have to go with the crowd because if you feel like rocking a coral blush in the middle of autumn- have at it! What I will say is it isn’t only my color cosmetics I switch out- it is everything! My skincare, hair care, foundations, & concealers all get a new blend as well. For autumn I tend to go for a lighter shade (goodbye self tanner!) & something a bit more comfortable. Keep reading to check out my picks & how I use them! [Read more…]
I’m a big fan of the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks & when I saw the new shades in the Rebel Bloom Collection I was sold. This collection came out months ago but I’m just now getting around to reviewing! I wore quite a few shades throughout spring & I’m actually finding myself reaching for them even more as summer approaches full heat! Check out my swatches & review below! [Read more…]
Matte lip products are still having a serious moment. I’ve been promising a big matte lipstick post for some time now but I just wasn’t quite ready yet. & now I am! Basically I wanted this post to be BIG. I’m talking huge. Because I love me some matte lips! My lips tend to be more dry so the list I’ve compiled tends to have really comfortable, creamy, & gorgeous shades that don’t tug the lips. I’ve gathered up my absolute favorite formulas & brands here to share with you- keep reading to check them all out including both lipstick & lip cream options! [Read more…]
Recently I’ve collected quite a few eyeshadow palettes that I think are perfect for spring…& I thought it’d be fun to share them with you! I haven’t played with these yet so it is half a haul & half a shopping list! Check out some of my new picks from drugstore to luxury! [Read more…]
Maybelline has long been a go-to brand for me when seeking out drugstore lipsticks. I have 7 of the 10 shades to share with you today & I’ve been wearing them for months. When they first came out there was an intense craze (myself included) & I picked up the shades I thought were either most original or that I figured I’d wear the most. Craving Coral, Ravishing Rose, & Nude Embrace were the shades that didn’t make the cut. Without further interruption I give you my thoughts & swatches of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Sensational Lip Colors in Daringly Nude, Touch of Spice, Lust for Blush, Faint for Fuchsia, Mesmerizing Magenta, Siren in Scarlet, & Divine Wine.

November was a pretty exciting month for me I must admit. We found out we finally get to move onto our next base- & it was one we wanted! I’m prepping to travel to California in January for both IMATS & quality family time. It has been bitterly cold but lacking snow- less work for us! I’ve also come upon some awesome new products, some older favorites, & just lots of beauty finds all around.
I’m a big fan of changing up my look which can be seen all over the blog. I tend to bounce from rainbow eyes to neutral & back again. Everything is pretty so why not give it a shot right? With the recent 20% off beauty sales & such I’ve also picked up some new items. & there are way more I haven’t even shared on the blog yet- so that is something to look forward to! Besides the lip colors, I wouldn’t say these items scream fall which is fine with me. [Read more…]
Orange is the New Black is one of my favorite shows currently…so we quickly flew through the 2nd season. I’ll make sure not to reveal any major spoilers but this season was intense (which was expected) but also full of awesome twists. One of my favorite characters on the series (which is on Netflix for those who haven’t indulged yet!) is Nicky aka Nichols who is just a seriously awesome character. She’s rough one minute & understanding the next but always speaks her mind. In collaboration a few other vloggers & bloggers (linked below!) we sought to cover some of our favorite characters- keep reading to check out my look! [Read more…]
Ever fallen in love with a look so hard that you just repeat it over & over? I have been absolutely obsessed with the look & color combo so don’t be surprised if you see it in upcoming videos & such. With the humidity completely settled in & here to stay I’ve been looking at more comfortable/effortless skin & long wearing, comfortable makeup on the rest of my face. Keep reading to see how Laura Mercier makes this look possible! [Read more…]
Laura from My Newest Addiction have been blogging friends a really long time so it only makes sense we decided to do our first video collab together! We wanted to both use the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette because she is so stunning & versatile. When we came up with the Alter Ego Palette idea we thought it would make a great tag too!
How does it work? Pick one of your favorite palettes & zero in on shades you use the least then create a look!
