I’m Back! Here’s How I Would Pack Next Time… Major Change!

Hello Friends! I am finally settled back into normal life. I had an amazing time on my honeymoon in Punta Cana. The weather was perfect and we met amazing people that hopefully we get to stay in touch with. I did however pack too much makeup. I know I can’t believe I am saying that. My skin was, thankfully, was so clear I really didn’t need much. Plus with the heat and humidity you don’t want to feel like you are melting. The first day I wore all my makeup and not a single day after that did I. Here is literally what I wore each day and what I will be packing for the July 4th weekend trip we are taking. IMG_5919

  1. I used my Tarte Shapetape concealer as foundation. I just dotted a tiny bit all over my face and blended it in. It gave a light evenness to my skin which was perfect.IMG_5923
  2. I gave my skin a little color by using a bronzer/blush by Too Faced. IMG_5924
  3. I gave my eyes a quick wash of color by using one of my favorite small palettes by Bad Habit Beauty. Nothing too crazy.IMG_5925
  4. Of course I had to do my brows with my absolute favorite product, ELF Lock on liner and brow cream. It looks so natural and stays on all day.IMG_5922
  5. Next I add some mascara using the Tarte Tarteist mascara.IMG_5926
  6. Throw on some lips. I used different products but I feel in love again while rediscovering the Buxom lip gloss in Mai Tai.IMG_5921
  7. Lastly and most importantly I put on Lashes every single night. It just makes everything look put together and takes any simple look and elevates it. I used the Eden Rose faux mink Lashes in the style Heartbreaker. I also used the House of Lashes Lash glue in the dark color.IMG_5920

So that’s it! 7 super simple steps and just a few products lead to a perfect look that was easy to do but looked glamorous still. What are your favorite go to products?

April 2018: Hits and Misses

Can Y’all believe it’s already May!?!?! I can’t and that means in just 25 days I will be on my Honeymoon!! I seriously can not wait and I’m sure that isn’t obvious haha. I have a few posts thought up for honeymoon related things and we are hoping to come back pregnant! Then I will have tons of post ideas ready to go! Okay enough blabbing, let’s jump into what I loved this month.

HITS

  • Herbal Essences Sheer Moisture Cucumber & Green Tea Foam Conditioner. Woof what a mouth full!! Anyways I have been seriously loving this foam conditioner. I thought I would hate it, especially with my long, thick hair. It didn’t leave my hair feeling slick like a normal conditioner but I still was able to get a brush through it and my hair wasn’t ever greasy. I really loved the results and my husband loved the smell.                                                                                                        Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.20.16 PM
  • Bad Habit Eyeshadow Palettes. Honestly they are all amazing. So richly pigmented and blend like a dream. And you can not beat the affordability. I would recommend these to anyone wanting amazing color payoff without a hefty price tag or if you just want a bomb palette. I can’t wait to see what else comes from this brand.

  • The Balm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter. Sometimes when you gather and collect makeup like I do you tend to forget about old favorites. I rediscovered this beauty and even put it in a pile to be packed for my honeymoon.Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.17.18 PM
  • Lastly I have be Obsessed with the BH Cosmetics Festival palette. I know I’ve talked about this before but the colors and the color payoff are so amazing. Such a great palette!                                                                                                    IMG_4852

MISSES

  • Just Nutritive Self Tanner. Let me start off saying this is not a total miss. I actually love how easy this is to use and the color that develops. But because it goes on clear you can not see what areas you have missed which leaves it streaky. Also I waited hours after applying to allow dry time and after putting my watch back on even a day later, I have a white strap around my wrist from the watch.
  • Spiral Twisters.. I just don’t understand how these work for girls with straight hair. Maybe because my hair is very thick and heavy they don’t work? My best friend loves them but I find that they just stretch out and my hair slips out of the pony tail very quickly.

 

That’s it for today! Leave me comments about what you are loving!

February Favorites!

Hey Lovely Friends! This month I dove in to some great products and I just have to share. February was a strange month here in the South because it went from being really warm to a little chilly… I do not enjoy this chilly weather. I’m hoping it warms up soon. So I didn’t get out of the house much. Doing your makeup with no place to go is still fun but not clearly as exciting haha!

Even through all this I still managed to find some fabulous products I couldn’t put down and here they are.

  1. Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara. I am Obsessed with this mascara!!!! It is pitch black and leaves my lashes so full and long. It is definitely my go to for those days that I don’t put lashes on. The brush defines my lashes and I really can’t say enough good things. If you haven’t tried it then what are you waiting for???Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.06.59 AMScreen Shot 2018-03-09 at 5.59.27 AM
  2. E.L.F. BB Cream SPF 20. This BB cream adds just the perfect touch of coverage and smooths out any redness. It is very inexpensive and gives spf coverage for the day. The BB cream is super blend-able and creamy. I reach for it everyday!
  3. Bad Habit Beauty “After” eye shadow collection palettes. These palettes are dupes for the Huda Beauty Palettes and OMG they are sooo creamy, pigmented, and build-able. And at only 10$ a pop… I mean come on. Ah-Mazing!
  4. Indian Healing Clay. Only 10$ and this jazz can do so many things! I have been using it for face masks and after only one use my pores were cleaner and smaller and my skin was incredibly silky smooth. It sells out quickly on the Hush app so keep your eyes peeled for it and get your hands on it as soon as you can!Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.28.38 AM
  5. Lastly is not a makeup item but I am obsessed. The Ultimate Classic Jogger from VS Pink. OMG so soft and comfortable. A must have in your wardrobe for lounge days or everyday if you are me!                                             Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.23.57 AM

Bad Habit Review- MUST TRY!

Hey friends! I know I have baby fever and I have lots of mommy posts prepped and ready but trust me I have not forgot about beauty and how much I love all things makeup!

If you have been with me a while you know that since becoming a mom I love finding amazing affordable makeup that performs high end but costs drug store. I know some people have expressed how they have a problem with companies making dupes of high end products but I love it, if it is done well. Bad Habit Beauty is a bomb.com company with whom I am obsessed with!!! You can purchase Bad Habit through the Hush app.

Wanna know how much I love Bad Habit?? I have purchased every item they have made!!!! Everything has been amazing quality and such a great option if you can’t afford or don’t want to spend 45$ on a palette. BHB makes dupes for many palettes like many of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes and Huda Beauty.

To the left is the newest collection from Bad Habit Beauty. It is a great dupe for the Huda Beauty Obsessions eyeshadow palettes which run 27$ a palette. The Bad Habit palettes run 10$ each or bundle all 4 palettes for 30$. It is really amazing that they can get such great quality product and fantastic packaging for such a low price.

The Hush app is a must for any beauty lover. They have so many amazing brands and some other brands I have never heard of, but I can confidently tell you that Bad Habit Beauty is a must!!!!
