Saving Money on Makeup

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 4.28.20 PM

I am a frugal person for the most part.  The idea of paying 50 dollars for an eyeshadow palette makes me cry a bit inside.  I don’t think there is one palette in my collection that I’ve paid full price for.  A lot of people really give into the idea that they need the latest and greatest, but my first piece of advice to save your dollars is… Avoid the hype  Wait until the..

What’s in my Bathroom

bath2

I always find it interesting what people keep in their bathrooms.  For myself, the makeup items in the bathroom are used on a near daily basis, at the very least weekly.  I keep the majority of my collection in my bedroom, because the steam from showers carries monstrous bacteria and you do not want that in your powder products! Urban Decay Primer Potion  Of course this is in my bathroom!  I use it.. Read More

I’ve been reading similar posts lately, one on the ever lovely From Roses, and other from Pint Sized Beauty, and I’ve really been enjoying them!  I thought I’d jump on it.  I actually (sadly) couldn’t think of 10 things to be really excited about, so I had to cut it down to five. Single Shadows  I have been really neglecting my palettes lately in favor of my single shadows.  I know a lot.. Read More

Halloween Look: Frankie Stein

Too soon for Halloween?  Never.  This was my Halloween look from last year.  I didn’t blog much last year during that time so I thought I would start this year off with a recap.  What I hate about online tutorials for Halloween is, yes, they look really cool, but you need lots of extras.  I like to use what I have in my collection already to create Halloween looks and basically, just keep..

The moment I saw this release I knew I wanted this eyeshadow to be mine.  The color oilslick just CALLED to me.  It looks a lot like Colourpop’s BAE which is one of my favorite shades to wear.  So I ran out and picked it up as soon as I could get my hands on it.

Makeup Memories: Red Lipstick

Smell is one of the biggest triggers to human memory.  Olfactory memory is considered one of the strongest types of memory that we can reach.  When I was a young girl, I thought my grandmother was the greatest person to ever live.  The older I get, the more true that statement becomes.  My grandmother dropped out of school in the sixth grade to care for her younger siblings.  She decided to sell her..

This was a fun little hashtag going around on Instagram, check out my page here, created by these lovely ladies:  Nikki & Nika.  Basically, each day was a new color that you would show off your shadow collection with.  I tried to choose a different brand of shadow for each day, I was pretty close!!  Here’s a just a recap of a few really fun days of instagramming.

Makeup Menu: Concerts

concerts6

Most of the makeup that has to do with festivals and concerts hit around the summer time.  However, for me, most of the concerts I’m interested in come later in the year, around fall.  There aren’t a whole lot of rock concerts in my area in the summer.  Aftershock comes in a few months, but I don’t think I will be attending because I’ve already seen a lot of the bigger bands that..
