GRWM: Bridal Shower!

GRWM: Bridal Shower!

Hello all! Yesterday I went to a bridal shower and decided to do a little get ready with me. I’m doing hair and makeup, plus a little outfit peek! Gotta love wearing a summery dress in 30 degree weather, come on Wisco. What we do for cute outfits!

Makeup

Most of this you’ve seen before, so I’m just going to mention 3 specific products: Stila Eyes Are The Window Palette in Soul, LoracPRO to Go Blush in Coral, & Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm.

Hair

       

I swear to god this post isn’t sponsored by L’Oreal, but I’ve been loving their stuff as of late. Especially with shorter hair.

Outfit

I added a cardigan and tights before heading out in the cold!

Spring Beauty Haul!

Spring Beauty Haul!

I went to Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom Rack and low and behold- purchased a little haul. I’ve decided after this that I’m going to either do a no-buy month or wait to buy anything until after schools done, which is May 13. I think I can do it! I didn’t really go with anything to specific to buy, just to see what’s out there. Also, I didn’t know Madison had a Nordstrom Rack, so that was a wonderful surprise!





From Sephora (L to R): Cotton Pads, Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, Anastasia Brow Wiz in Granite, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, Mini Bite Agave Lip Mask & Whipped Cherry Scrub Stick

Chicago Spring Clothes Haul!

Chicago Spring Clothes Haul!

Two weeks ago my mom and I went to Chicago! We were there as a birthday present for me and went to the Book of Mormon. It was sooo good! Naturally, we had to do a little bit of shopping. We’ve been there many times but this time stuck to state street. I highly recommend this because it’s less crowded and they offer great stores! Spring is my favorite season and I love the fashion that comes with it! 

Old Navy





The Loft

Edit

A’gaci 

This store is only in nine states but their clothes are wonderful and affordable. They do have a kickass website too and I highly recommend checking it out. http://www.agacistore.com





What’s your season to dress for?

Keep being you!

February Favorites!

February Favorites!

All right, so I think it’s about time to write about my February favorites. Better late than never, right? I am hoping that spring will come to Wisconsin in March! Please, please, please. 2015 is flying by so far, so let’s see if that keeps up! Makeup timeeee. I’m overtired, can you tell? L’eggo!





Urban Decay Naked Foundation in 2.0 

This shit is wonderful. It really is like your skin but better. It’s super light weight and has okay coverage. It’s that perfect transition foundation from winter to spring. I’ve never tried an urban decay face product and I couldn’t be happier!



Real Techniques Buffing Brush

This is a brush that I’ve had sitting in my drawer for awhile just not knowing what to do with it. Now, I’ve used it with the foundation above and I love it. I think I like it more than the expert face brush. I think that it just makes your foundation go on smoothly and finishes flawlessly. 5 star brush and high recommendation. 



Milani Baked Blush in Rose D’Oro

I’m fairly certain I’ve talked about this blush before but it is something that I’ve been obsessed with in February. It just adds that perfect pink glow to your face without looking to doll like. I seriously love how this looks and I want to try out more of Milani’s blushes. 



Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie

I love these things. They are so creamy and moisturizing. It is a gorgeous berry color, which is my favorite shade. It’s easy to wear and throw on again throughout the day. This is another product I want to give a go in a different color. 



Revlon Colorburst BalmStain in Honey

When I wasn’t wearing the one above, I was wearing this one. This is a your lips but better shade for me. I really like how it looks on the lips. It just adds that little extra oomph. Seriously obsessed. 

Keep being you!

BRAND New Face: Rimmel

BRAND New Face: Rimmel

There are many times I forget that I have certain makeup items in my collection. This new idea (BRAND New Face) will basically be a brand focus, where I only use products from that brand. Therefore, I can revisit products I already have and give any reviews/first impressions. The one cheat that I am going to let myself have it eyebrows. Lets face it, once you have routine, you really don’t stray.

Does that make sense? I hope so. The first brand that I am going to visit is Rimmel. This is probably my favorite drugstore brand, it is just so reliable. While doing this face, I definitely found some new discoveries but also visited old gems. Without further ado, here is a BRAND New Face: Rimmel!

For the base I used Matte 9-in1 BB Cream in Light and Match Perfection Concealer in Light. I have raved about the concealer many times, and nothing has changed. It is still my favorite all time concealer. The BB Cream was a product that I have not tried before. I actually really like it. It gives a really good first impression. The color is wonderful and easy to blend. It dries matte and looks like your perfect skin. I’m very impressed and will be using this again!

On my eyes I used ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige, Exaggerate Felt Tip Eyeliner, and Lash Accelerator Mascara. I have used the eye shadow stick before and it is a pretty, bronze color. Super easy to blend and just adds a nice little something. I loved the Lash Accelerator Mascara. I put it on and instantly put it in my makeup bag. Slowly, I’m learning what I like in a mascara. It has taken long enough and this ticks all the boxes. The standout product of this face for me was the eyeliner. I’ve tried it before and it just never really worked out, not today though! It went on so smoothly and it was super easy to do. It dried matte, which I actually really like, and it stayed put.  This is an entirely new discovery and I am so happy. I’ve never been able to find a great drugstore eyeliner so I am pumped to keep trying this out and see how it holds up! So far, I’m in love.

The last two things I used were the Natural Bronzer in Sun Light and Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 11. I’ve used the bronzer and I don’t really have any kind of opinion on it. I’m still trying to figure bronzers out, they kind of confuse/taunt me. It does add a nice warm glow. The lipstick is to die for. I’ve always loved their lip products and this is just another one that I picked up. I think that the color is absolutely gorgeous. I am living for the dark red and black liner look. Rimmel Lipsticks never fail to disappoint.

What Rimmel products do you recommend? How did you enjoy this? Is this something that I should do more of, if so what other brands would you like to see? I hope you had a fantastic day 🙂
