I’ve recently been trying to purchase new products to try and am loving it. In January I was experimenting with makeup a little. Im not a heavy makeup fanatic because lets be real I don’t know how to blend eyeshadow very well. I can get away with light shadows and all that but once you put color and a black on them lids forget it. I guess that just means I need to start practicing more.
I wear foundation everyday unless I am hanging out at home. Obviously at the end of the day you need to take your makeup off in order to stay away from those nasty zits. Face wash alone just doesn’t do it. I like to double cleanse my face, sounds awful and drying but thats what your toner and moisturizer are for. I take a makeup or baby wipe and pour the liquid on and go to town cleansing my face starting from my forehead working my way down to my neck. I make sure that wipe has no white spots and that every inch of it is filled so I know my face is makeup free. After that I end it by washing my face and going on with my skincare routine.
This has been my EVERYTHING I literally LOVE this product. It’s been out on the market forever but I never grabbed it to try. One day I decided to grab it on my way home from work. Lets just say best decision of ma life! I wear a crap ton of foundation, well I’d like to say so, other people probably think I wear a light bb. I spray this on my Beauty blender before applying my makeup and after all my makeup is done. I use powder on my face at the end. But to finish it off I spray it on my face and just feel like it completely makes my powder melt into my skin making me have a flawless finish.
I have always had small lips. The whole trend right now is to have full lips. Let’s be real here not everyone can afford lip injections. You can line your lips but that takes some time. I like fast and easy. I popped into Sephora to pickup a lip plumper. I was recommended to try Buxom by one of the sale associates. I gave in and decided to pick a neutral color. OMG I put it on my lippies and they were tingling and it was so satisfying. It make your lips appear full and the gloss totally helps make them look much more voluminous. The color payoff is great pigment in this product is reasonable. It does tend to come of after about 25 minutes but im okay with that.
Luxury mascaras were my thing in high school. I had no bills nothing to really pay for. As soon as life hit me I got a job bought a car and school came around…….my makeup game downgraded because that wasn’t as important as the other things. Luckily I found a awesome mascara that I’ve now been using for about a year and a half now. I like to use the darkest color and pack it on without having my lashes look clumpy and this is just what this mascara does. They do have a water proof version which is awesome for the beach days that will be coming up. This mascara does not flake which is an A+++++. Even the high end mascaras tend to flake. If I had a million dollars and had the option to choose Chanel or Loreal mascara I would probably go for Loreal. That’s how serious I am….. BTW don’t get me wrong i’m a complete obsessor over Chanel.
Last but not least these Top Shop boots have been my everything. I love to wear a fun piece. My favorite staple piece to wear are shoes and bags. Let me tell you Top shop always kills it with their shoe designs. Their sizes usually run pretty true to size which is awesome especially if you’re ordering online. They’re very inexpensive but looks like you paid a couple hundred bucks. I usually wear wear them with skinnies and a simple white v-neck for a casual look. If Im feeling a little dressy Ill throw on a button up, stick it in, and put on a cute belt with a little hat.
Let me know what your January Favs were 🙂
