Two Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar: eye shadow pallet

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Tow Faced HangoverRx Primer

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder

Two Faced Lip Injections: instantly sexy lips plumping gloss

I am all about trying new foundations and I use different ones depending on the occasion and being a make up hoarder I just enjoy collecting it. This It Cosmetics is one of my favorites for an everyday look it has spf and anti aging properties. I have also tried the It Cosmetics cc cream and I liked it but it’s very light coverage. Perfect for going to the beach or lake! Now the tarte shape tape is my ALL TIME favorite concealer. Nothing compares its perfect to wear alone to cover up blemishes or for a full face. I just started recently using the hangoverrx primer and so far I really like it. It smells nice and it doesn’t clog my pores like most primers do. Now for the lips, the lip injection lip gloss is like nothing I have ever used before when you put it on, your lips tingle and you’re like what the heck is happening. But the results are amazing! It really does plump your lips! The break out powder and eye shadow are both new products that I’m excited to try and have never used before.

Hope y’all enjoyed this haul have a great weekend!


Dior Forever vs. Estee Lauder Double Wear


So for about the last 4 years I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and it was my ride or die everyday foundation and I absolutely loved it (and still do). However, recently it started to oxidize on my skin and break up throughout the day and I would find myself having to constantly re-apply it. It was also a very dehydrating foundation and it was almost impossible to blend with my concealer. The Double Wear is full coverage and heavy on my skin and I was starting to break out a lot. One of my girl friends recently recommended that I should try the Dior Forever foundation. So this past weekend I went to my local Sephora and got mashed for the Dior Forever. Let me just take a moment to say, THIS IS THE BEST FOUNDATION I HAVE EVER USED IN MY LIFE! The coverage is so full and hydrating and it has SPF which is amazing! I still love the Double Wear but I feel like it is more of an event foundation that you would wear out to dinner or a gala or something not and everyday foundation. The Dior is light and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and not gross.


A Round Up Of My Beauty Favs

AC1D392A-3C43-44EA-B941-E1648CB84FD99EA77C83-B6B9-4F02-BE76-25F7D7410A688B3F5B8C-2F0E-465C-AF89-8B7977128DFFB03D2A0A-6EE1-455B-AEBC-DC9D36F39210A4282F3D-9CD9-4B3D-8F29-C2F0503E7440DC2EF163-972B-4615-BA92-F8CF46800C9BB87E8A00-DB3C-4783-B81C-2A23D329F3B2DEA592FE-D42D-4D1C-A88E-A2CDD698AE3F5F078D52-D96B-4B05-A1C6-17F659FDB68017E7A243-C455-4F13-896F-F0154F9DB32ETonight I have put together a few of my favorite beauty products that are my ride or die, holy grail, oh my goodness can’t live without beauty favs! So first off are the Revlon matte lip colors these are my all time favorite drug store lippy colors, they are long lasting and smell amazing. I buy mine from Walmart because well I go to school in the middle of no where and the closest Ulta is 45 minutes away, also I’m a broke college girl balling on a budget so these $8 lippy colors are A1! Next up is the best eye shadow known to man, Bare Minerals, Nude Beach this eye shadow is so pigmented but not heavy and not to glittery I wear it pretty much everyday because personally I think it’s easy to put on especially if you don’t want to wear eyeliner but still feel glam. Side note I did however drop this eyeshadow this morning all over the floor and cried a little inside. This butter bronzer I got from CVS and  is one of Jaclyn Hill’s favorites and well of course if she tells me to go buy some kind of make up on her YouTube channel I’m sold and have to go get it because she is like the prettiest woman alive. But this bronzer smells AMAZING I have gotten all my friends hooked it’s the best. Next is the snake skin Morphe brush case another recommended product by Jaclyn Hill it keeps your make up brushes clean and won’t mess them up, because you know when you’re traveling and you toss your brushes into a ziplock and then they get all misshaped and then they just don’t work the same. This little box is the answer and it lays flat how cool is that! Another Morphe product is the M439 best foundation brush it blends out your make up so beautifully and gives you a natural cake free finish. LIVE. LOVE. DIE. for this brush (haha). Finally, the Garnier Micellar Water  removes eye make the absolute best and doesn’t burn at all! It helps get rid of any stubborn make up after washing your face and leaves your skin feeling fresh. I hope y’all enjoy some of my favorite things and have a great night!


Glow and Go: morning routine


Stores: Sephora, Nordstrom, & Ulta

Good morning beauty babes! Early start this morning, time to glow and go! The first step in ensuring for a youthful and awake look when it feels like you have been hit by a truck is to wash your face. You would think using cold water to wash your face would wake you up right? WRONG! Warm water wakes your skin up and makes your whole face feel alive again. My first step is to use the Purity makeup remover to remove any left over makeup from the day before, next I mix Clinique Facial Soap and Clinique Sparkle Skin Exfoliator on to my Clarisonic brush and start to wash my face. Now my face feel squeaky clean! Next I go in with Estee Lauder Micro Essence water, I swear y’all this stuff removes all the redness from your face and leaves it feeling hydrated. Then I put on the Estee Lauder Pore Minimizer and the DayWare sunscreen and my face is prepped for make up. I love the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, its like  blemishes and redness don’t exist with this little magic wand. I then apply the Hello Flawless pressed powder by Benefit and the L’Oreal voluminous Lash Paradise (Jaclyn Hill’s fav). Now my look is complete and I can hopefully make it to my 8am class in time! I hope you have a wonderful day!
