What I'm Loving Tuesday: Eye Shadow Palettes at Sephora

What I'm Loving Tuesday: Eye Shadow Palettes at Sephora

I have my eye on adding two eye shadow palettes to my growing collection. I tend to stay with more warmer palettes, but I am looking for two palettes that will keep me in a warmer tone, but has some colors that I can use to step outside of my comfort zone so that I can create some new looks. I have included my final picks that I will be choosing from. I will also have a tutorial soon with my two picks so that you can see how it turned out.

I already know that one of the palettes that I will be picking is the Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette. It is not new, but I think it has some colors that I would normally never use, so I think it would be a perfect mix of colors that are in and out of my comfort zone. Do you have any eyeshadow palettes you cannot seem to live without this Spring?

Spring Style Office Chic

Happy Tuesday!

It's officially Spring and I do not know about you, but I am loving all the spring florals. This Spring I am stepping out of my comfort zone and wearing way more prints than I ever have. All of these are great transitional pieces that you can pair with skirts, pants, blazers, cardigans, jean jackets, etc...the sky is the limit. Anytime I am buying any clothing piece it must pass the test of being able to work from day to night as well as me being able to style it various ways so that I can get some longevity out of it. Prints are something I typically do not reach for because at times I have a hard time styling them, but I have made a goal for myself that this Spring I will work on pairing prints much better. Hopefully I can add even more flair to my clothing wardrobe especially after my massive Spring clean out. If you are not already following me on Instagram, please do. I recently talked about how my husband's idea of fun one day over Spring Break was me going through three dressers and three closets to purge my clothes. The process was no fun, but of course it is always a great feeling to be able to donate clothes to Goodwill, other charitable sites, or at my school to fellow co-workers or students who may be in need.  Take a peek at my Spring picks because I am sure you will love them as much as I do.

Any items you cannot live without this Spring? Please let me know in the comments.

January + February 2018 Beauty Favorites

January + February 2018 Beauty Favorites

Alright y'all, let's talk all the beauty products I just could not seem to put down in January and February. What I mean by I could not put them down is that I used these products every single day of January and February.

  • Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is the BEST concealer ever. It is the first product that I would ever call the holy grail of concealers. If you are not using this product as your concealer you need to stop reading this post immediately and purchase. I use the color Tan for a reference. In the summer I will more than likely have to switch to Tan Sand. 
  • MAC Cosmetics Patrick Starr collection lipstick in color Mama Starr. If you are my same skin tone you must own this lipstick. It is the perfect every day pink nude color. 
  • MAC Cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix is a must especially when wanting to put on a shimmer eyeshadow color. Spray this on your brush and it it just picks up the eyeshadow color so nicely. Also, after you are done putting on foundation, concealer, contouring, and setting powder and you feel you look a little too white then spray this on before finishing the rest of your makeup. 
  • Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick has become my hands down holy grail foundation for me. I love how the color perfectly matches my skin tone and it lasts all day. 
  • Hourglass Ambient Bronzer gives the perfect glow and bronze look that I am going for. 
  • Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara has the perfect brush that picks up every last lash. One coat is absolutely perfect. 
  • Stila All Day Waterproof liner really does last all day. It stays in place and glides on so smooth. 
  • Farsali Rose Elixir is great primer before putting on a matte lipstick. It helps the lip color last longer and has drastically improved my fine lines on my lips. 
  • Laura Mercier setting powder is what I would consider another holy grail product. It is the best setting powder. I have tried a whole lot of setting powders and this is the only one that can tame my oily skin. 
  • Farsali Unicorn Essence is the best primer. I have a whole collection of primers and I keep going back to this one. Any foundation that I have used after using this primer just goes on so smooth and helps my foundation stay matte. 
  • Huda Beauty Desert Dusk eyeshadow palette has the best shimmer shades. The pigmentation of all the shadows is amazing and it is so versatile that you can go from creating a tame look to a very dramatic look. It is the first palette that I have gotten out of my comfort zone when it comes to using the typical subtle brown shade shadows and started using colors I never thought I would ever use and still feel professional. 
Other favorites that are not linked on the photo are...
  • Violet Voss HG Pro eyeshadow palette. I have used every single color on this palette and each color is beautiful and the perfect eyeshadow palette that you can use for any occasion and will not need any other palettes in your collection. 
  • ColourPop Cosmetics Lux Lipsticks. I purchased 10 colors and I love them all. My favorite color is Pinkies Up and Ghosted. They are the perfect go to every day nudes. 
  • Benefit BadGal Mascara. I am typically a girl who goes for a thicker wand, but I am really digging this smaller wand. I think it picks up every little lash really nicely. 

There you have it...all of my January and February beauty favorites. So what have you been loving lately?
