Hey guys! Today I thought I would share with you a makeup look that is perfect for Fall! This look is all about warm maroon and plummy shades and is just so pretty! These colors would be flattering on any eye color, and is a great take on a classic smokey eye. Instead of using black or deep brown and gray eyeshadows, I used a matte maroon red in the outer corner of my eye and a matte pink to blend out the crease. Dramatic enough for a nighttime look, but definitely a wearable daytime look as well. I paired mine with a pink and red plaid shirt, and the two went together perfectly.
So if you're like me and have one or more beauty subscriptions then you probably have samples galore, something similar to this...
Or perhaps you just collect the ones from all your Sephora purchases...
I simply open one of my packets and squirt it in this container, and then dispose of the messy packaging. I only put one packet at a time in here, and usually it will last me a week or longer.
I currently have a Shiseido moisturizer in mine right now (which feels lovely on your skin btw!!!)
As for my eye creams, I am using an old Tarte eye cream container that I emptied a while back. I washed it with some soap and water and wiped it clean with some rubbing alcohol, then emptied a packet in it as well.
Hey everyone! Today I thought I would share some of the beauty items I have been gathering over the past month or so. I've used all of these products at least a couple of times, and have really been enjoying them. Maybe this will give you some ideas on various items you might be interested in trying! First up are some items I have recently purchased from MAC that I am absolutely loving.
Tinted Lipglass in Florabundance, $15
If I wear makeup I generally tend to do a dramatic eye and a super simple lip, and I really love just swiping on a MAC Lipglass and going. Florabundance is a gorgeous creamy nude-peach that goes with just about any makeup look. LOVE.
Jouer Lipstick in Grace, $22
I was watching a random video on YouTube several weeks ago and the girl was wearing this lipstick. I can't remember who it was, but it looked SO pretty on her....so of course I had to have it. Grace is such a pretty orange-coral-pink lipstick! I haven't worn it myself, as I am starting to gravitate towards more deeper/neutral shades given the time of year. But, I will definitely break this bad boy out in the Spring or whatever. Even throughout the Fall and Winter months sometimes I will swipe on a bright lipstick to liven things up a bit. This would be perfect for that!
Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel in Checkmate
Softlips Cube 5-in-1 Lip Care in Vanilla Bean, $3.49
I have purchased both of these products twice since Spring this year. This has basically been my go-to sunscreens this year. I especially like the face one from Hawaiian Tropic. Their stuff always smells so darn good.
Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a beautiful nude polish that I have fallen in love with!
"Checkmate" from the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy line is an absolutely beautiful light beige nude that applies flawlessly to your nails. I used 2 coats of the polish and 1 coat of the diamond top coat and ended up with a gorgeous manicure. This polish lasted for about 8 days before I noticed any wear or chipping, which I would consider really good for a drugstore nail polish. I have 3 colors from this line, and I have really enjoyed all of them. So far Checkmate is probably my favorite, as I gravitate towards this type of color the most! Highly recommend!
