Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my March Favorites. I have been testing quite a few new products and I am excited to share them with you. I feel like this month I had such a good routine going when it came to my skincare and makeup. I am really excited for spring to hopefully make an appearance this April. Is that too much to ask for a little bit of warm weather?

As you will see I have been trying out a few new products that are natural and good for your skin. They come from this small shop in Harrisonburg, VA. You can check them here if you want to learn more.

I’m currently trying out two new different makeup products from with simplicity and I have been enjoying the new additions to my makeup routine. I picked up their dry or wet eye shadow product in Latte and their mineral matte foundation.

I finally got around to painting my nails and picking up a new perfume which you can read more about here. I returned to my tried and true mascara from Maybelline the Colossal Volume’ Express Cat Eye edition. The last and final product that completely blew me away this month was the Black Radiance Perfect Tone Matte Lip Creme in Berry Naked.

Like I mentioned earlier I have been killing it with my skincare routine this month and I owe all of that to my new face wash from with simplicity. I also picked up the boscia no pores no shine T-zone treatment that has been helping me keep my T-zone shine free throughout the day. Last but not least I have been taking my eye makeup off with the Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads these have been part of my routine for quite some time.

I hope you all enjoyed my March favorites and that you all have a great start to April. I’m excited to see what new adventures and things I discover this upcoming month.

What were some of your favorite products for March? Anything you would recommend me try out?

Have a great Friday! See you all on Monday.

Taupe Eye Shadow.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

When it comes to make up I am either too busy to do a proper eye look or I have plenty of time to do the whole nine yards on my eyes. When I was traveling this past summer I discovered a eye shadow that made it super simple to get ready. You can pretty much find it any where and depending on your skin tone you can find different variations of it in the drugstore or in various palettes. I’m taking about the taupe eye shadow or better know as the one eye shadow look. If you don’t own a eye shadow like this I will give you a few reasons you should.

1. It simplifies your makeup routine.

2. You can pretty much find them anywhere.

3. You only need one color to create a beautiful look.

4. You can dress this eye shadow look up or down for any event you may have.

5. The color suits most people’s skin tones.

Now that we got that over with let me share a few of my favorite ones in hopes that you try out this very simple yet beautiful eye look.

Pixi loose eye shadow is a beautiful pigment that has beautiful gold flex for a more dressed up look.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe is a perfect base for all of your taupe eye shadows if you want a more intense look. It can also be worn alone for a cooler toned eye look.

Kiko 124 eye shadow is a dark brown taupe with a cooler undertone for a more sophisticated look.
