NYX Makeup Favorites! 

I recently purchased the NYX Color Correcting Concealer. This stuff is amazing!


Taking notes from art class in elementary school, this concealer uses the color wheel for how to conceal. I use the green on any red spots (acne, pigmentation), and the yellow for blue under-eye circles or veins. Apply your foundation over the concealer. The results? Marvelous! 


I also love their Intense Butter Gloss. This color (IBLG11) is the exact one used on my wedding day. It’s a sweet little reminder!

Our Wedding Day!!!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted on here! It’s been a crazy fast two months! We got married, went on our honeymoon, moved, & started our lives as newlyweds. It’s been so wonderful!

I thought I’d share some beautiful pictures from our wedding day. I’m so happy with how they turned out!

Thanks so much to Kyle Weaver Photography!

(Be on the lookout for some wedding posts in the near future!)

Beauty Find: L’OREAL Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lipcolor!

While browsing the makeup aisle at Target the other day, I came upon these beautifully packaged lipsticks.

 :

This collection is exclusive to L’OREAL. Female celebrities inspired these various colors. I picked up the Blake Lively red, Julianne Moore red, & Julianne Moore nude.

Other celebrities include Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Doutzen Kroes, & Liya Kebede. Target has the reds and nudes. I believe you are suppose to go by the celebrity that has the most similar coloring to you, then pick their lipstick. However, a lot of the lipsticks look like they would work for various colorings.

I think these are totally worth the purchase. Beautiful shades, beautiful packaging. Can’t go wrong!

Stila Best Of Kitten Gold Makeup Set!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Over the weekend I took my usual trip to Marshalls. I almost left with a new Kate Spade bag, but it was white and sadly had a few marks on it. I did, however, leave with some Stila makeup that I’ve been eyeing ever since I started watching YouTube makeup videos. It was beautifully packaged in a gold, metallic box that caught my eye instantly. Inside it had an eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip gloss, liquid luminizer, and a gold bracelet from Baublebar. For $18 I thought it was a steal! I took some swatches & the payoff seems great! The colors are beautiful. This find was awesome!

COVERGIRL & Maybelline Makeup Haul!

 :

Happy Tuesday!

I’m always hesitant when looking for makeup. It can be difficult to find the correct colors, consistency, & coverage. But I ended up taking a chance on two concealers, both by COVERGIRL. The first concealer, truBLEND FIXSTICK Concealer, works great for discoloration & scars from blemishes. I have a few scars on my face from blemishes, and this covers them so well! It’s a creamy consistency, and the coverage is great. I put it around my nose, on scars, and discoloration.

 :

The next concealer is by COVERGIRL also. It’s Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer. I used it under my eyes. It really brightens the eye area, which is always a plus!

Finally, I re-purchased a liquid eyeliner, Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner. This is an excellent liquid liner that makes drawing on wings super easy!

 :

Overall, great purchases that only cost around $20 total! Comment below if you’ve used these products, or if you have recommendations!

At Home Spa Treatment!

 :

Happy Weekend, everyone! I decided to do an at home spa treatment last night, & I’m so glad I did! My skin is so soft now, and I feel like my pores have shrunk significantly. The treatment I used is Montagne Jeunesse Fruit Smoothie masque. This masque has the ingredients of raspberry & mango.

Directions:

*Test a small, discrete area of your face to be sure of no irritation*

Cleanse face (I used my Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser & warm water)

Apply masque

Relax for 10-15 minutes (I only did 10 because it felt weird dried on my face, lol)

Rinse with warm water & pat dry with a wash cloth

I really loved the smell of this masque. It’s not over powering, but it does have a slight fruity smell. I thought it was very refreshing! Fair warning that as it dries, this masque does feel weird (very dry feeling). I haven’t used a face masque in a long time, so that may just be me, but I only left it on for 10 minutes.

I’m not sure where you can purchase this masque, & others like it, because it was a Christmas gift. However, Amazon has them for $11 here.

“Oh my gosh I need a (fill in the blank)!”

Happy Friday, everyone!

If you are like me, your purse has your whole life in it. I keep things in it that would save me if a zombie apocalypse strikes, or, you know, I have a beauty emergency. I typically would rather have too many items in my purse than wish I had something I didn’t put in it. Better safe than sorry!

How about you? Does your purse hold items for any life moment?
