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!

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!
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!

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!
When I did my makeup this morning I decided to put my white eyeliner to use. I was looking rather tired in the eyes, so what better way to brighten them up than with white eyeliner!
I did my usual liquid eyeliner to create my winged effect on my lid. Then I applied mascara on both my upper & lower lashes.
The last thing I did was apply the white eyeliner to my water line (the inner rim of the eye).
I think this look helps make you look awake & fresh-faced!
In my rush to get Lilly Pulitzer items at Target, I did manage to snag two lip glosses. I actually thought they were lipsticks, but when I got home I realized they were glosses. I was bummed when I realized that. But once I tried the glosses, I was forever changed!
The pigment of the glosses is exceptional! The colors are really bright & become the statement of your makeup look.
Another thing I love is the applicators. I was able to easily apply with precision, & get a smooth finish.
The two glosses I purchased were 105 in Pink Tremolo & 201 in Rose Symphony (which is what I’m wearing above).
Don’t think you can’t get these glosses anymore. I went to my local Target & they were in the L’OREAL section. They have various shades, even a nude which I was tempted to buy, but refrained.
Let me know if you have tried these lip glosses, & what you think!
