Makeup Monday: The Silver Lining

IMG_0434

Happy Monday Everyone!

I can’t believe we are so close to 2018 ending, where did this year go? None the less this year has been a roller coaster and I’m looking forward to finding the silver lining in all that I have lived through this year. I created this look in honor of the year ending and thought it would be a great look for a New Year’s party.

Makeup Monday: Moments of Love

IMG_0525

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today’s look is a very personal one I created as a wish for next year that is so quickly approaching. I’m specifically referring to my love life. I wanted to channel what I want out of a relationship in 2019, and this is what I came up with. A darker, sultry and sparkly look that makes me feel happy when I look at it. This was such a therapeutic experience for me and I love the final product.

Welcome to winter Wednesdays on my corner of the internet. I am so excited for all of the awesome things I am going to share with you all this month. To start off I am talking about skincare and making sure your skin is protected.

I picked up this skincare kit at Target and it contains:

0.5 fl oz Sunday Riley GOOD GENES All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment
0.07oz SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair
0.5oz Lancer Skincare The Method: Polish
15g Tula Skincare Hydrating Day & Night Cream
1 fl oz DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
1 set Erna Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask
100ml Bioderma Sensibio H2O
10ml Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 (PA+++)

I wanted to highlight four products from this skin care collection that I completely feel in love with when I was trying this out.

This Deep Cleansing oil completely shocked me at how light weight it is. I was one of the most lightweight and cleansing oils I have ever used. No sticky residue and washes off with water like a dream.

These multi-task eye serum masks were such a cool experience because they were and instant fix to my puff eyes.

I focused on my eyes this particular pampering and I had to try out the This Eyes cream in this set. I loved how light this eye is and that it can be used twice a day.

I hope you all enjoyed this mini review and that you are taking some time to take care of your skin this holiday season.

Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!

Festive Friday: Old Town Alexandria Boat Parade

Happy Friday Everyone!

I am so excited to kick off my Festive Fridays with this amazing recap of the Alexandria, VA Boat parade that is held in Old Town. My roommates and I scheduled a fun afternoon exploring shops and eating great local food as we waited for the annual boat parade. This was the perfect way to start the Holiday Season and I can’t wait for you all to see what else I have in store for you this whole month.

I would highly encourage you to check out your own local festivities in your surrounding areas.

Have a great Friday!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today kicks off my Makeup Mondays looks for this month and I am so excited to bring you some fun holiday looks that cater to all range of skills. I want you all to feel inspired and not overwhelmed by the content that I post. So, I am starting with a pretty neutral and wearable look for all my readers who want something easy and simple.

This look uses one palette and only three shades. You can build up the intensity if you wish, but it’s pretty simple and can be recreated with any neutral palette you may own.

I hope you all enjoyed this look and stay tune for the other more fun/playful looks I have for you all throughout the Fridays in December.

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday!

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Dark Magic Palette

IMG_0419

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a new palette I picked up from Ulta. I feel like this particular palette would be great for the Holidays. The price point is $15 which makes it a great gift for the holidays and a nice little splurge for you.

IMG_0407

This is the first time I have tested out any Morphe products. When I swatched the colors at Ulta they seemed to be really pigmented, which is a plus in my book.

Let me know if you have tried out any Morphe products before? Any ones you recommend I should check out?

Have a great day!
