My other lovely friend Brandie

Yes, another Brandie! My friends are so helpful and willing to let me play and practice on them. Brandie and I decided to try a darker smokey look, and boy oh boy...the girl is a fox. Even though we did her makeup at 2 in the afternoon, she looks like she is ready for a hot date with her hubby! lol Thanks again Brandie :)

The Lovely Brandi

My dear friend Brandi lets me play makeover with her! She is always willing to let me do whatever I want to experiment/practice. She is so much fun to put makeup on, and she's gorgeous! I just love her. This time she let me practice a bridal look, and I think it went quite well :) Here's the evidence...

Everyday Go-To Makeup

Here's just some of my normal every day makeup, for days when I just want quick and easy coverage. Anyone who knows me knows I have A TON of makeup and I love to play with it all, but I find myself gravitating towards these products for my normal day to day look.... enjoy :)

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer. Love this stuff

MAC Mineral Skinfinish Natural in Light. Some days I just don't feel like wearing foundation so I just wear this and I still feel like I have a good amount of coverage.

Smashbox Blush in Pink Coral. Love this go to blush when I don't know what color to choose. 

ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Natural. Let's face it, some days we don't feel like putting our entire "face" on. For those days I just add a touch of this color and it adds a little shimmer.

Maybeline Falsies Volume Express Mascara. Love this to death!

Bonnie Bell Dr Pepper Chapstick. My lips get so dry, and this stuff works great while adding a reddish pink color to my lips. Added bonus, it smells like my favorite pop :)

FOTD Natural Makeup

No big plans today, just cleaned house and ran a few errands. This look is my go to "natural" look. I tried to stay low key with the eye shadow since it was a low key kind of day. The blush was a peachy brown color and I stayed neutral with the lipstick as well.
Enjoy :)

Elf Haul

I recently made a purchase at ELF during their President's Day sale where everything was 50% off!!! I only spent $25 but a lot of bang for my buck :)

This palette is awesome! I love all the fun colors that came in it and I got it for practically nothing! I have plenty of eye shadows, but they are quite an addiction, so here I am with ANOTHER palette.
Yet again, more eye shadows!These shadows come with two similar shades in each container. One is a lighter shade, while the other is in the same color family, only darker.
These pads are awesome! Instead of having to saturate a cotton swab, it's already done for you. So if you're lazy like me, you will love these :)
Your basic eyebrow kit, gel and powder.
I bought four brushes. One powder, one blush, one contour, one small precision brush. They look like they are pretty good quality, I've only used the blush and powder one so far and I'm pleased.
Sorry the pic is a little blurry, but this is E.L.F.'s waterproof lengthening & volumizing mascara. I've used it twice so far and I really like it. It doesn't seem to volumize very well but it certainly does lengthen.

Well that's my haul this time. I feel like I got a pretty good deal, everyone loves a sale!
Enjoy my beauties :)
