My everyday makeup routine

I’m not sure what happened but I really love makeup right now. My favorite thing to do right now is scroll through YouTube and watching beauty vloggers unbox their new beauty products and I start to get so excited because I NEED to try everything out. I’m definitely a beginner when it comes to buying makeup and applying it but I have the basics down.  I started using powder foundation a few months ago but it really has no impact on my face and I didn’t really like the consistency. I stopped by Sephora and picked up the Sephora liquid foundation in the color Deep Mocha. It matched my skin tone perfectly and it was only $20. This works so much better than powder. And it blends beautifully.

My NYX first base spray primer and setting spray work so well for me. I spray my beauty blender with the first base spray then I apply my foundation. I find that it blends better when the beauty blender is a little damp. And the dewy setting spray gives me that everyday shine that I like on my face without being too over the top.  If I’m not in the mood to use either I just use my First Aid Beauty hello fab coconut skin smoothie Priming moisturizer. It’s soft and makes my skin smell so good!

For my lips, I either keep it simple or take it to the next level with color. Some days I just want a lip balm and other days I like matte lipsticks in a dark color or a bright lip gloss. It really just depends on my mood that day. A lot of my lip products are from Ulta or the Marshalls beauty section. I try to find great products at an affordable price so I don’t break the bank while shopping for makeup. What do you guys use in your everyday makeup routine? Tell me in the comments below!

Masking away

FullSizeRender (9)

I did some major skin care shopping and I picked up the Mask of Magnaminty clay mask from Lush. There’s two versions of this product and i purchased the self preserving one that has honey in it. After you wash your face apply the mask for 5-10 minutes. What’s different about this clay mask is that it doesn’t get rock hard and uncomfortable on your face. Oh and it smells like honey and peppermint! I used the mask for a week straight and you can definitely see how healthy my face looks if that makes sense. I purchased the 4 oz container for $12.95.


Yes or no to blotting sheets

I have this love hate relationship with blotting sheets. I spend 8 dollars for a pack and it runs out days later.  The purpose of blotting sheets is to control the oil on your face while you’re wearing makeup or just to freshen up throughout the day. I use to buy Clean and Clear blotting sheets all the time but as I got older my face started changing and I kept breaking out every time a sheet would touch my face.

I’m trying to find a way to control the oil around my nose while still getting the proper moisture on my face. During my search for an oil free face I stumbled upon Fig + Yarrow and I purchased the white face mask.  The white Fig + Yarrow face mask is made for sensitive and normal skin types. It provides a deep cleaning without causing your face to break out. I’m thinking if I use this face mask every other night along with blotting sheets throughout the day my face might react differently. I just ordered some blotting sheets from Ulta.com. Review on the mask and blotting sheets to come.

New beauty products



Mario Badescu Eye Cream

I finally  got my hands on this product and I love it. You can definitely see a difference after the first use. When I don’t get enough sleep at night you can see how tired I am when you look at my eyes so I needed a product like this.


Ulta BB Cream Beauty Balm

I’m excited to use this product. I usually wear makeup when I’m going out but I wanted something lightweight and easy to use during the day and BB  creams are perfect for that. It applies very smooth and it’s doesn’t cause breakouts.


Gucci Guilty Perfume Set

It smells AMAZING.. That’s it!


Soul Sunday Sugar Scrub

I love Soul Sunday Products and I got this sugar scrub as a Christmas gift. I use the multi-task oil right after the scrub and my skin feels like heaven! This could also be used as an exfoliator.
