Natural Glam Holiday Look

Hello lovelies! Welcome back! Today I decided to share with you my natural and pretty simple to do holiday look. This is a great way to amp up your day to day look, and works for an office setting. I also think you can accomplish this look in less than 15 minutes! Yes, I said it! This look can be completed pretty quickly.

For my look, I used the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation in 365C soft beige. I then did my brow with the Maybelline brow drama in deep brown. I then touched up a couple of bare spots with the E.L.F. brow pencil in neutral brown.

On my eyes I used Foxy all over the lid, and Bootycall on the inner third of the lid, from the Naked 2 palette. For liner, I used the Kat Von D ink liner in trooper. This and the lips probably took the most time for me. If you prefer a pencil liner use that. Use whatever you are comfortable with. Another option would be to wing out your liner. I attempted and it just wasn’t happening for me today. On my lashes I used the Urban Decay Perversion Bigger, Blacker, Badder mascara.

I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Dollface. I think this is the perfect wintertime blush shade. It may not look like it in the pan, but for me it is the perfect natural flush shade. For highlight I used Tarte’s Amazonian clay highlight in exposed highlight. I finished off the look with the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink lip color in 20, Pioneer. This is the perfect red that anyone can pull off, and it makes your teeth look whiter!

That’s everything that I used for my natural holiday glam look. I hope you enjoyed this look. If you want to see me do other makeup looks let me know what you would like to see. Have a great Monday and I’ll see you in my next post.

My Go to Fall Look

Hello lovelies! Welcome back! Today I’m sharing my go to daytime look for fall. I’ve worn this look running errands, going to work and everything in between. With this look I am able to complete it in about 10-15 minutes.  If I’m running really late, I will eliminate a few steps, such as the eye brow pencil, the eye shadow, and sometimes even the mascara.

On my face:

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer
  • Becca Backlight Priming Filter
  • Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation in Soft Beige

On my eyes:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
  • Mac eyeshadow in Soft Brown
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Perversion in the water line
  • Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

On my brows:

  • E.L.F. brow pencil in Neutral Brown
  • Maybelline BrowDrama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Deep Brown

On my lips:

  • Blistex Silk & Shine Lip Balm

  • NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee

  • Maybelline Color Jolt Lip Paint in 05 Stripped Down

I’ve been bouncing around between the three different lip options. For the most part I would choose depending on the happenings of the day. If I’m going to work during the day I’ll opt for the lip balm or lip gloss. If I am working an evening even I will go for the lip paint.

That’s everything for my everyday fall make up look.  What is your go to look? Have you already written a post about it? Share it in the comments. I would love to check it out. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you in my next post!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

Hello everyone! A little while back I shared with you what I thought would be good picks during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale. I know because of my project pan I am on a no buy, but when I do my shopping, I do try to shop when there’s a deal. First, I looked at what I have and then looked at what deals were going to be happening at Ulta. So let’s see what I picked up during the sale plus a couple other bits that I picked up at the same time.

First up are the Philosophy Purity made simple one- step facial cleansing cloths. I picked up two packages of these. I thought because they are cleansing and not makeup removing wipes these would be great for at the gym. After a good workout just to cleanse the skin quickly until I get home.

Next I picked up two Stila eyeliners. Both are shades of brown. The lighter brown is the shade of Espresso which is a medium shade of brown. The darker brown is the shade of Damsel which is a dark black brown. When I did my last clean out of my stash, my brown liners were old and definitely expired.

Last items that I picked up from the sale were two Tarte blushes and a highlight. The blushes that I picked up were Exposed and Dollface. Exposed is a nude shade. I picked this up because I was looking for s nude shade that could possibly work for those no makeup- makeup days. Dollface is a beautiful light pink, which I think is similar to the shade that my cheeks naturally flush. The highlighter I picked up is in the shade Exposed Highlight. It is a nude shade that can easily be used as a highlight AND an eye shadow. I think it would look beautiful as an allover sheer wash of color for a quick 5-minute look.

Now on to the items that I picked up that weren’t part of the sale. On one of the trips to Ulta, I brought my boyfriend with me. While I was looking at whatever the deal was that day, he was insisting on getting something for me. I continually told him no he didn’t have to. As we were walking out he saw the display for the Urban Decay Vice Waterproof Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks, the metallic ones specifically. He told me to pick a color out and I chose one of the nude, light pink shades, and he goes how about this one. This is the one that ended up coming home with us. He chose the shade Big Bang. I love this shade! This is the shade that I would love everyday, but I am not confident to rock it everyday.

The last couple of items I picked up from Target. My Target is right next to Ulta and well, I have the I see a Target and I must go in and see what I can pick that I don’t really need. They had the Wet n Wild stuff buy one get one 50% off. I picked up the coloricon blush in Rose Champagne and the megaglo Contouring Palette in Dulce De Leche. I thought that the blush would be a nice drugstore option for a nude blush, however after I swatched it on my hand it may be better as a highlight or an eyeshadow. The contour palette I have yet to swatch. I am hoping because I am so fair that it will work or at least be a nice bronzer option for the summer.

That’s everything! I love everything that I have picked up. I can’t wait to really use these things and test them out. If you want to know my thoughts on any of these items let me know. I hope that you have a great weekend and a Happy Easter to those that celebrate. See you all in my next post.
