Dollar Tree Makeup Look


Hey everyone,

A couple days ago, I posted about some Dollar Tree makeup. So yesterday I put that makeup to the test.

Dollar Tree makeup used:

  • Beauty Benefits Bronzer in Sepia
  • Beauty Benefits Blush in Crimson
  • Beauty Benefits eyeshadow trio in Classic

Eyes- Brown shade in the crease, pink shade on the lid and bluish green shade on my lower lash line.

Face- Used bronzer as contour and blush on my cheeks.

Pros-

  • Pigmented
  • Easy to blend
  • Stayed in place for 6 hours

Cons-

  • Very powdery and lots of fallout.
  • Blush is very pigmented, so you can end up looking like a clown.
  • The bronzer has a lot of shimmer. (Which is a con to me but may not be for you)

After 6 hours of wear time. We went out for Mexican food and I was sweating like a whore..lol

I think this is great makeup for someone who is just starting out or on a budget. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look good.

New Years Resolutions 2018!!!


Hey everyone,

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday. Our family had a wonderful time. My husband was off work and was able to spend a lot of time with Mattie and me. It was very nice.

So usually my New Years resolution is to lose weight, which I will be changing to living a healthy lifestyle. I have realized that I don’t do good with diets. I always feel like a failure if I don’t lose weight and I hate feeling that way about myself. So no more of that.

I will also be getting into essential oils. I just signed up with Young Living and I’m so excited to get started. I’ve seen how amazing these oils are and can’t wait to start incorporating them into my family’s life.

I also want to be more present. I get distracted so easily. I really need to focus on putting my phone down and spending more time with my family.

That’s what I’m going to be focusing on this year.

What is one for your New Years resolutions?

Thanks for reading my post.

Blogmas Day 13- Easy Makeup!!!


Hey everyone,

So today, I had a doctors appointment. The one thing I hate doing when I feel like crap, is looking anywhere near acceptable to walk outside my door. I want to stay in my yoga pants and giant t-shirt with my hair all messy. But no, I had to go to the doctors office. So, I did the absolute least.

The absolute least-

I wanted to post a before picture but forgot to take it until I was almost done with my concealer..lol

Step 1- I applied the Wet n Wild Conceal Makeup Stick under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin. Then I blend it out. The formula of this is very creamy and feels more like a foundation stick than concealer.

Step 2- I used the Wet n Wild Blush in Floral Majority on my cheeks and blended it out.

Step 3- Wet n Wild Highlight stick in When The Nude Strikes. I applied this on the high points of my face.

Can you see a trend with the Wet n wild makeup sticks?? Lol

Step 4- Next I applied Maybelline Fit Me Powder all over my face to set all the cream products.

Step 5- I applied Younique Splurge Cream Shadow in Unapologetic on my lids and blended it out.

Step 6- Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix on my brows.

Step 7- L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise on my lashes.

Step 8- Wet n Wild lipstick in Will you be with me.. weird name lol. I love this lipstick, it’s only 99 cents and they are really creamy and feel amazing on my lips.

There you have my easy peasy makeup of the day.

Blogmas Day 10- Skincare Routine!!!


Hey everyone,

So, I’m gonna be honest with you, I don’t wash my face everyday and sometimes I leave my makeup on while I sleep. Since I’m getting older, I really need to start keeping up with my skincare. I don’t want to look like the walking dead by the time I’m 40..lol

Here is my skincare routine!!!

First I use the Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser to clean my face. Then I use the Pixi Glow Tonic to tone my skin. It’s also exfoliating which makes my skin glow.

I use the Pixi Rose Oil Blend to help with my skins luminosity and I love the smell lol

I end my skincare routine with L’Oreal Reviralift. This stuff is amazing, it’s anti-aging, which I need. Plus, it moisturizes like a dream..lol

There you go, that’s my skincare routine. I swear this post is not sponsored by Pixi. Lol

Blogmas Day 8- Makeup of the day!!


Hey everyone,

I feel like I’m running out of stuff to write about already..lol. This will be a short post.

Yesterday, when my husband got home from work we had to run out to pick up the plate for my new car. Then we went out for Chinese and some shopping. It was a lot of fun. Our daughter was cracking us up at dinner. Matties hilarious!!

Here my makeup from yesterday!!

Blogmas Day 5- Christmas Wishlist!!!


Hey everyone,

Christmas is only a couple weeks away. I still have a ton of shopping to do, I always wait until the last minute.

So, this year my husband and I aren’t exchanging gifts. We just bought a car, so thats our gift. I still think it’s fun to make a wishlist, just in case lol

Wishlist-

Clothes-

To me clothes always seems like a boring thing to want for Christmas. I feel like Christmas and birthday gifts should be something fun. Clothes to me aren’t fun but I really could use some new clothing items. Being a stay at home mom, I’m usually sporting yoga paints and a t-shirt. I need some nice going out clothes.

Makeup-

The Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette- I’m not a huge fan of Jaclyn Hill but her palette looks amazing.

Too Faced Clover palette is so cute and has some really amazing shades.

Kitchen Appliances-

Keurig- Normally in the morning I’m home with just my daughter, so I hate making a pot of coffee just for me. This would save me a lot of time and money.

That’s pretty much all that I would want, there’s really nothing that I’m dying to get my hands on. A new car is the most amazing gift I could have ever received.

What is your top wishlist item?

Blogmas 2017- Day 2- Makeup of The Day!!!


Hey everyone,

Yesterday my Sister, my daughter and myself went to the mall in search for a present for our 14 year old niece. I felt really old because I have no idea what 14 year olds are into..lol

Here’s My Makeup From Yesterday-

I started out using Maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation.

Next I accidentally used my Maybelline Fit Me powder before I applied my concealer..lol

Younique Mineral Touch Skin Perfecting Concealer- Yay, I remembered the concealer. I just used this under my eyes. I love this concealer. I did set it with powder afterward.

Avon True Color Luminous Blush in Plum Pop.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer- I’m so pale that I need to use bronzer just to look alive.

Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eyebrow Shaping Kit- My eyebrows are disappearing, so slapping on some eyebrows is a necessity.

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Palette- I applied Earl Grey to my lid and blended it out with Almond Truffle. Then I applied Dark Truffle to my lower lash line. I put Cafe Au Latte to the center of my lids. I used Divinity to highlight my brow bone and inner corner.

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise- I love this mascara. I love how I can only apply one coat and get amazing volume.

NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray- I sprayed this all over my face. This is amazing and helps my makeup from disappearing throughout the day.

NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel- I applied this to my cheekbones to make them pop.

Lipsense in the shade Lexie Beary
