FOTD: Tartelette in Bloom Pallet

img_6713

We made it to day five!!! The Tartelette in Bloom pallet is one every girl should have. This is honestly the perfect everyday pallet. I remember earlier this year this pallet is all I reached for. It’s a true neutral pallet that only has three shimmers. Obviously people would automatically reach for the shimmers to put on the lid so I decided to do a full matte eye just to show the versatility. Thank you guys for sticking with me these five days! I hope to get some reviews up soon since I have been using a lot of new products. Full product list is below!

Favorite Fall Lippies!!

Fall

Hi Loves!!! Fall is quickly approaching and that means FALL LIIPPIES!!!! I think everyone who loves makeup loves Fall Lipsticks! Most people always think super vampy lip colors but some of my favorite Fall lipsticks are on the pinky, red side. It was hard to narrow down my favorites to only ten (I know ten is still a lot lol ) but I managed to do it!!!

*FYI trying on TEN lipsticks is no joke lol my lips were in pain by the end haha. Most of the colors are matte so my lips did stain after the first lipstick so I’m sorry for sloppy application and stained/bruised lips lol*

FOTD: Drug Store Edition!

Fireball

Hi Loves!!!! First things first….I’ve missed you! I took a week off from work (and blogging lol ) to relax/celebrate my 25th Birthday (#RaiDay was everything!). Of course I did some makeup shopping for my birthday (Thanks Ma, Jas, Antonae and Lamont!) so expect a birthday haul of all the goodies I got later this week, just waiting for a few online purchases to arrive. I also got some umbrella lights (Thank you baby!) so I’m excited to play around with those to improve my pictures! OK now that all of that is out the way, lets get into this FOTD were I used ALL drug store products!

As always the first thing I did was my eyebrows. I used the NYX Micro Brow Pencil for the first time and I loved it! I know in my area (Detroit, MI) they sale NYX products at Ulta, Target, CVS, and also at local beauty supply stores. Next I did foundation and used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless….hands down my FAVORITE drug store foundation! If you would like a review on this just let me know! For me this foundation applies best with a round top foundation brush. I like the Real Techniques expect face brush in particular. I do not prime my face with this foundation because I don’t get super oily just slightly dewy, which I like in the summer months.

All About Eyeliner!!

DSCN0846

Hi Loves! Today we are going to talk about eyeliner!! This was a very hard topic to cover without doing a video so I hope the pictorials do this topic justice. I will cover gel, liquid, and pencil liner, my favorite eyeliners and also the technique I use to apply. PSA: excuse my brows in these pictures lol I did not fill them in so they are looking a little ratchet. My apologies in advance.

The liner I reach for the most is the Maybelline New York Eyestudio gel liner in Blackest Black. I LOVE this liner because its super black and the finish is matte! For this to be a drug store product, the quality is amazing! Another gel liner that I hear a lot of good things about is Inglot’s gel liner in #77. This is slightly more than the Maybelline but I hear it’s great. To apply the gel liner I switch between this BH Cosmetics eyeliner brush I got in a set and the Real Techniques eyeliner brush. They both work really well and I feel I have a lot of control when applying liner with them. For liquid liner I like the WetnWild H2O Proof liquid eyeliner. This liner will not go anywhere once you apply it! I also like that the brush on the applicator is short, which makes it easier to control. As far as liquid liner, the drug store has some of the best! NYC, e.l.f., Milani…all these brands have great, inexpensive liquid liners. Last is pencil, which is the type of eyeliner I use the least. My all time favorite is the Milani Liquid Eye because it’s an eyeliner pencil that is liquid like. It’s very easy to apply and most importantly for me, easy to smudge. You’ll see what I mean by this later on.
