2017 Favorites!

Hello all!

It’s my annual “I’m going to try blogging again” post. But this time it should stick, I’ve written a schedule for myself and have some content ideas already, so hang tight!

2017 was an interesting year for me. I started off in a job that I wasn’t a fan of but I loved the people I worked with. Then in March I took a new job that I absolutely detested. I only worked there until June and spent the summer unemployed. That meant I got to hang out with my mom a lot which was great because sadly she lost her best friend in February and they spent one day a week together in the summer.

Then in August I decided to take a leap of faith and move to Minneapolis. I was going to work in a hotel up there but then I applied for a job in my field, had an interview the week I moved up and was offered the job the same day. It has been an incredible job that I’m so grateful for. I’ve met awesome people and love the cities. I have no idea what 2018 has in store for me but I’m excited nonetheless.

All right, enough rambling. Let’s get to the makeup!

May Favorites!

May Favorites!

Your favorite inconsistent blogger here back with a niche favorites. Honestly, they are the best posts to write and the main reason I’m writing this is because one of the products blew me away, and I was not expecting it. So! Let’s get into it.

Cover FX Calming Primer

My skin has done a complete 180 in the last few years. It has gone from incredibly oily to now dry, and often red. I picked this up for a pretty penny on a whim at Sephora and I’m really happy that I did. It’s a great primer that is true to its name in that it calms my skin. It is the perfect first step to your makeup routine and I can’t recommend it enough.

LORAC Pirates of the Caribbean Cheek Palette

If you guys didn’t know from my blog name, I’m a huge Disney fan. I’m also a huge makeup fan, obviously. So combine the two and what do you get? An empty wallet. I love this cheek palette and the fact that it combines highlighters, a blush and a bronzer. I’m going to New York later this summer and I will definitely be bringing this with me. I also might have already ordered the Beauty and the Beast eye shadow palette.. first impression anyone?

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Enchanted Dream Eye Shadow Palette

I placed a Feel Unique order a few weeks ago as I missed some London essentials, and decided to add this in my cart. I’ve always wanted to try her eye shadows as I’m such a big fan of the cheek palette. I’m really happy I did. The quality is amazing for the price. When I’m just running out the door/don’t want anything to fancy I just put Cocoa Plum all over my lid and call it a day. It looks really pretty on its own or mixed with the colors in the palette.

Maybelline Master Fix Setting Spray

This something I picked up after I had run out of my Milani spray- they don’t sell it in my local shops ūüė¶ I’m glad I tried this one though because I do like it a lot and it’s almost empty. When I use a setting spray, I like to feel it spray on my face. Maybe that’s weird? This does that and I think it does a damn good job of making my makeup last longer. I feel incomplete when I don’t finish my makeup with a spritz of a setting spray.

EcoTools Makeup Brush Shampoo

You haven’t blogged in 3 months and you’re putting a brush shampoo in your favorites? Listen, the first time I used this I had little to no expectations. I followed the directions on the back of the bottle and let my brushes dry. When I picked them up the next day to use them, I was absolutely blown away. Not only were they squeaky clean, they were also as soft as the day I bought them. This is something that now sits on my bathroom counter because it is that good.


That’s a wrap for now folks! I promise I’ll try to blog more. I’m going to a Once Upon a Time event this weekend and I’m Disney bounding each day so maybe I’ll do a post with how to get the looks. That could be fun. Tell me- what were your May favorites and what do I need to try?

Valentine’s Day \\ The Look

Valentine’s Day \\ The Look

Ah, the best day of the year for single people – Valentine’s Day.

To me, this has and always will be a Hallmark holiday that I do not care to celebrate whether or not I have a boyfriend.¬†Thought I’d do a little tutorial for all the non-believers/Valentine’s lovers. I’ll be waiting for the candy sale on the 15th.

Here’s my 10 step tutorial for V-Day.


Step 1: A dark smoky eye to accurately reflect the color of your soul


Step 2: Cat Eyes to foreshadow that you’ll become a crazy cat lady


Step 3: Waterproof mascara for when you realize that literally all of your friends have significant others


Step 4: Full coverage concealer to hide your true feelings


Step 5: Sharp contour to show that you¬†aren’t to be messed with


Step 6: A strong brow to show that you are a strong woman


Step 7: Highlighter because you need more men to notice you


Step 8: A dark, vampy lip because lord knows you’re not making out with anyone


Step 9: Setting spray to make your makeup last until you find a man, better hope it’ll keep your makeup on for years


Step 10: Finish the look, conquer the world – or the bar

First Impression: Elf Liquid Eyeshadow

Hello Lovelies!

I was browsing in a different Target the other day and I came across new Elf products! They had a bunch of their aqua products, and me being me, I knew I wanted to try out their eyeshadow. I thought I’d do a first impression and wear it all day with final thoughts!



The full name of this is aqua beauty molten liquid eyeshadow and I got in the shade rose gold. When I first applied it, I used my finger to blend it out and was unimpressed. However, I then decided to give it another shot and used my MAC 217 brush and fell in love. It’s a gorgeous wash of color and super easy to wear. I applied it around 12pm, worked out and sweated my ass off around 6pm and it was still fully intact! It lasted all damn day and I’m obsessed. I might have to try out a couple of other colors.


I really, really liked this. Plus it was only 4 dollars and that seems like a steal to me! I might have to try out a few of the other products from the aqua range. Have you tried anything from it?

June Ipsy!

June Ipsy!

Guess what’s back, back again? That’s right! I have resubscribed to Ipsy and I can’t tell you how excited I was to see that little pink envelope by my mail box! I love this. I really, really do. And I really like the products I got! Plus the bag this month is awesome! Lets get into it ūüôā



Vasanti Cosmetics Kajal Waterline Eyeliner – Intense Black

I am always on the hunt for eyeliners that actually stay put in my waterline cause most don’t. So I’m really excited to give this a go. Here’s to hoping that it stays and is a success! It’s such an intense black. I love it!


Urban Decay Eyeshadow – Lounge

When I saw this, I thought ew green?! Then I watched it and turned reddish. What? I’m really excited to try this on my eyes and see what the color looks like! Also no worries- the cardboard it came in assured me I’m not under the influence.


Be A Bombshell Pout Potion – Secret

This smells like summer and I love it. I’m not one for this light of shades but I’m thinking I’ll put it with some darker colors to lighten them up. The color is actually great and I wouldn’t mind seeing what other colors they have.


Delectable by Cake Beauty Everything Balm

This product confuses me. It tells me it does everything but I really don’t know what it does or where to put it. I will say it smells delicious so that gets major points. I’ll try figuring out what I’m supposed to do!


Crown Brush 3 Tone Bronzer

This is a tiny little thing so I’m assuming I swirl the color together because it would be impossible just to grab one unless I use a tiny, baby brush. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I like the idea so we’ll see!

What did you get in your Ipsy?
