Fresh spring makeup (with 2 lip options)

Spring is here! Which means it's time to break out some brighter colors and soft, dewy makeup looks. I love dark lips for fall/winter but I have been really itching to get out some of my bright lipsticks! This is a soft pink eye shadow look I created with a light pink/nude and bright pink lip option. Keep reading to see how I created this look!

Real Techniques sculpting brush set

I think I saw this on either Instagram or Twitter the day it was released and IMMEDIATELY bought it. Real Techniques has yet to disappoint me with any of their products and I knew I could get a lot of use out of these brushes!

Quick review: Tarte Park Avenue Princess palette

Since warmer weather has made it's way to the south, I've been on the search for a better bronzer. So while I was in Sephora this palette caught my eye because the bronzer looked light and matte - great for pale skin!

Green and gold smokey eye - St. Patrick's Day makeup

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner (or if you're like me you celebrated it this weekend to avoid a work week hangover) and I wanted to create a wearable green smokey eye. Most of the shadows used for this look were from the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette which has some AMAZING greens and golds.

MAC Burgundy X nine eyeshadow palette

I recently ordered the MAC burgundy times nine eyeshadow palette from Nordstrom ($40) - I don't have a ton of MAC shadows so I thought this was a great time to try out a few. There are several well loved shades in this palette! Here are my thoughts and some swatches!

Green duo chrome eyes - make a mediocre eyeshadow better with a color base!

Recently I bought a Sephora collection duo chrome eyeshadow and was SOOO excited to use it but...when I swatched it the color just wasn't what I'd hoped for. BUT! I knew I could make it work over a color cream base.

Review: Rimmel lasting finish 25 hour foundation

I recently came across this foundation at Walgreens in the 'new products' isle and it caught my eye. I knew the name because this is not a new product from Rimmel, it has just been repackaged and the formula has slightly changed. Of course I had to get it because a few years ago this was my go-to full coverage, long lasting drugstore foundation!
