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…]
Purple is my favorite color & every fall I tend to dip into that color scheme even more! While purple-toned shades are my favorite for eyes, purple lips are awesome! I collected some of my absolute favorites & included varying price ranges as well. Keep reading to check them all out! [Read more…]
Every year I look forward to the ULTA 21 Days of Beauty where they roll out tons of deals worth snagging. This year I’m a bit late to the game though! Normally I am all about lip & eye products but this time I’m sharing the 3 face products I was most excited to try at a discounted rate. I picked these out myself & am excited to give you a bit of background so you can snap them up at a great deal!
It seems like every year or so everyone all of a sudden has the same holy grail concealer & I am always on the fence of purchasing. After returning the famous NARS concealer (it was too close to a drugstore option!) last year, I thought it was time to give another high-end concealer a shot. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer immediately caught my eye for two reasons- Urban Decay actually makes shades light enough for my skin & I love a full coverage concealer. Keep reading to see if it is a hit or a miss! [Read more…]

Ipsy bag? I kept thinking to myself Why would I bother reviewing these if I keep thinking I’m going to cancel? In retrospect… I probably should have kept showing you guys what I was getting since I’ve stayed subscribed. Getting back into the swing of things & being excited about mail…well now is the perfect time to start sharing again! This month I was really happy with my Ipsy bag so I’m actually pretty pumped to share it with you!
When I’m ready to jump full-speed into the warmer months, the first thing I look for is a bit of color! Color is the fastest way to change up a look & something that can really make a look pop! Some of my favorite products to add a splash of color to my makeup are in this post & I even have a way to save some cash with ShopatHome.com– so keep reading to check it out! [Read more…]
So last week I turned 26! How about that? I actually had some real highs & lows this year but I think I’m coming out of it a much happier person. Shed some serious baggage, improved myself, & am starting out this year on a definite positive note. I can’t ask for much more! Instead of doing a birthday haul today I thought it might be fun to show you some of my favorite birthday gifts from years past in the beauty category- what do you think? I can still do a little birthday haul soon if you’d like to see it! Keep reading to check everything out! [Read more…]
The Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash came out quite awhile back…possibly for the holidays? It is actually still available here at Macy’s right now so I thought I’d give you the down & dirty on it. For some reason I completely resisted the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick phenonminon. Everyone seemed to have & love them but then I just…didn’t buy them. I sure bought everything else though. I figured I’d get around to them & now that I have I’m ready to share with you what I think!

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…]
