Everyday Makeup

I'm very fuss free when it comes to my makeup. I skip makeup 2-4 days a week and often skips steps like foundation and primer. I like to look slightly more polished, and then finish it up with a bold lip on most days!



The Base:
Collection Concealer and Revlon Nearly Naked Powder: I don't really care to use foundation to cover up the imperfections on my face. Unpopular opinion, but I think acne covered up looks more disgusting then the red spots themselves. But then again I don't have cystic acne so its not for me to say I guess. Anyways, I just conceal under my eyes and then powder my whole face. The Nearly Naked Powder is enough of a light coverage for me to feel spruced up! This one looks busted as hell but I've already bought a backup, just waiting to finish this one up!

The Cheeks:
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, ELF Golden Bronzer and Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in "Exposed": I adore matte cheeks and both of these fit the bill. The Chocolate Soleil Bronzer gives me the perfect contoured sunkissed look without being too heavy. I already spoke about this blush in my favorite blushes post but it really is the best everyday bronzer and it looks awesome. ELF's Golden Bronzer is not a bronzer at all on my olive skin tone but it is the prettiest highlighter, I use it in the inner corners of my eyes as well.

The Lips:
Wet n Wild Lipstick in Spiked with Rum and MAC Lipstick in Diva: Spiked With Rum is the best pinky brown everyday shade that I have found for my skintone. I wear this when I don't want to worry about bold lips or when bold lips aren't appropriate(in my eyes they always are, but you know the deal). Diva is my current favorite dark lip but it's probably because it's my newest. I'll do a video on all my favorite fall/winter lip colors soon.

The Eyes(and Brows):
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Benefit Gimmie Brow: I rotate mascaras and try new ones all the time. Anytime there is a mascara point perk at Sephora I usually grab it, just so I can say I've tried it. Better Than Sex is not my absolute favorite but I don't hate it at all. There are better cheaper ones though, so I probably wouldn't repurchase after I use this sample up. The Stila Liner is my absolute holy grail liner. I know a lot of people have complained about theirs drying out but I purchased mine in early august and it is still going strong. I do already have a backup though. I'd hate to be without it. Before Gimmie Brow, I had given up on caring about my brows. A couple weeks before I got it I had been experimenting with powder and pencil and I hate both. My brows are just unruly and slightly sparse. I don't like brows that don't look natural. Gimmie Brow tackles all my needs in one. It's a tinted brow gel that also volumizes! I usually use two coats but my brows are never crispy and they look beautifully natural. The price is absolutely ridiculous but until I find an alternative, I am a slave. No turning back now!

After typing this it seems like so much but it really literally takes me about 3 minutes to do my face and I do my eyeliner/mascara on the train to work usually which takes me 2 minutes tops. What are your everyday makeup staples?? ♥

Thankful





Top: H&M | Pants: H&M | Shoes: H&M | Bag: Zara | Lips: Sephora Color Last in No23

Hi everyone! Happy thanksgiving to all of my American readers! I'm working early today but I am still in the greatest of moods. This has been a rough year for me in terms if me finding my place in the world, but I feel a bit more grounded and a bit more happy and I really think that this blog is a big part of that! Thank you guys so much for reading and following my blog. I may only have a little over 200 followers but I am really grateful that anyone is interested. I'm only able to post about twice a week right now, and I hope that's enough, but any more makes it seem like a job, and I'm super busy at the moment. I don't need another job, haha. I really can't express my thanks enough, but I will, in a giveaway coming next week. Thank you guys so much for everything! ♥

Gift Idea: Origins Holiday Sets and Reviews!

Origins Holiday Sets
Hi guys! I want to do some holiday themed posts and I figured I would start with some gift ideas! This video is about some Origins sets that I picked up but I think that skincare sets are an awesome idea in general. I for one would love a skincare set from any brand because it gives me a chance to try multiple things from a brand. I bought these for myself because they're such a good deal and Origins is my favorite brand! For example, the "Merry Moisturizers" set is $49.50 and it comes with a full size Make a Difference+ moisturizer which is $39.50. So for $10 you get the 3 other items, which are valued in the $35 range combined. That's amazing. I love holiday season for these sets, skincare, makeup or otherwise!

Origins Morning to Midnight set review
Morning to Midnight: $52.00
High Potency Night-A-Mins, Ginzing Moisturizer, Ginzing Eye Cream, and Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.

The Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is a cold weather/holiday/dry skin savior but I also use it in warmer weather when I just want a boost of moisture. It's just too good. I let it sink in for about a half hour before I go to bed, just to avoid smearing on my pillows. I just finished my previous Ginzing moisturizer and that was an amazing moisturizer but I don't know if it will take me into the winter so this one is probably getting pushed into "storage" until April or May. I love the eye cream, which I also have ten thousand samples of laying around and Night-A-Mins is one of my all time favorite moisturizers and I am so happy to have another one. I actually bought these sets when they were having a deal where if you spent $65 you got a 1oz of Night-A-Mins and a deluxe sample of No Puffery roll on eye gel, so I have Night-A-Mins for freaking ever and I couldn't be happier!

Origins Merry Moisturizers Set review
Merry Moisturizer Set: $49.50
Make a Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Moisturizer, Make a Difference Plus+ Hand Treatment, Make a Difference+ Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion and Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.

I know what you guys are thinking. Why the hell would you buy a set that had a double in it. Its simple. I fucking love this mask and I can never have too many extras. Aside from the hand cream, I have tried all the products in this set. I just finished my last jar of the rejuvenating moisturizer which I freaking love and I'm so glad to get a new one. I just started using the treatment lotion and it reminds me a lot of the rejuvenating treatment gel that leaves my face feeling super moisturized, but its just a bit lighter, which I prefer during the day under makeup.

What holiday sets are you loving so far? ♥
