My Hair Styling Products 

Beauty

Hey Guys! Happy Friday!

This week in particiluar has just seemed to drag on! I’ll be more than happy when I can finally crawl into bed tonight and turn on a good movie.

Anyways, today I wanted to feature another one of my YouTube videos where I talk about the styling products i’ve been using and loving on my hair.

Having short hair has been something of a recent thing for me only having had it cut this way for about a year. Within this past year it has taken a lot of trial and error to find the right combinations but I think I’m finally starting to figure it out. Also, if any of you have some short hair tips I would love to hear them!

So, I hope you guys enjoy this video and let me know what you think!

Makeup Brush Collection

Beauty, Lifestyle, Makeup

Welcome Back!

I hope you guys had a lovely weekend. It’s currently 16 degrees and snowy where I live so I am definitely looking forward to some sunshine and warmer weather! Anyways, today I wanted to share with you a collection of my current/favorite makeup brushes that I used on a day to day basis.

 

I am a firm believer in the fact that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get good quality makeup brushes. All make up brushes I use are under $15 a piece. If you’re looking to add some new brushes to your collection, look no further than some of the ones I’ve mention here.

Brush #1:

 

This Elf Flat Bop Brush is awesome for applying any kind of power foundations you might be using. I use this brush when applying my Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. It provides a smooth application as well as leaves your makeup looking flawless.

Brush #2: 

 

I like to use this brush to apply whatever blush I might be using for the day. It works great when applying color to the apples of my cheeks. I also love this brush because it is part of the Eco Tools cosmetic makeup brush line. This means, each product is made with a bamboo handle, recycled aluminum cap, and is 100% cruelty free.

Brush #3:

 

When using this brush, I like to apply any sort of bronzer I might be wearing for the day. The slanted bristles allow for a more precise line while the roundedness of it allows for any appropriate blending. If I want to add some warmth to my face and make it look like I have a slight contour, I reach for this brush every time.

Brush #4:

 

Speaking of contour…I recently mentioned this brush in my “New Makeup Products” post. I can’t rave enough about the quality of this brush and the fact that it was so incredibly affordable. I use this brush when I’m trying to actually get that contoured look. The packed bristles and the straight edge makes for the perfect contour tool.

Brush #5:

 

This is the first Real Techniques brush I have ever purchased and I will say honestly that I’m looking forward to owning more. I use this brush as somewhat of a buffing brush. When I’m finished contouring or applying any sort of makeup I like to finish by blending out any harsh lines or access powder. The bristles are super soft and the the overall design of the brush is extremely comfortable in the hand and nice to use.

Supreme Shopaholic Tag

Beauty, Happiness, Lifestyle, LUSH

Happy Tuesday and Welcome Back!

So today I will full admit that I was pretty excited about today’s post. The reason being, is that I was actually tagged by fellow beauty blogger elliesprettylittlelessons to do the Supreme Shopaholic Tag. This is the first time I’ve been tagged to do something like this so huge thank you to Ellie!

The rules for this tag are:

Name the person who nominated you and insert a link to their blog

  • List the last three things you bought
  • List three of your favorite stores
  • Write down why you love to shop
  • Name five super shoppers and link to their blogs!

 

The last three things I bought:

  1. Pure Essential Oil Diffuser   
  2. Tigers Eye Genuine Stone Bracelet  
  3. Arlesienne perfume by L’Occitane  

List three of my favorite stores:

  1. American Eagle– I honestly haven’t gone into this store without finding 800 million things that I NEED in my wardrobe immediately. It’s kind of funny because for a while this store wasn’t even on my radar. It wasn’t until my little sister got a gift card for her birthday and we decided to take a look. Since then its been a blessing and a curse rekindling my love for this store.
  2. LUSH– Ok…it’s LUSH people whats not to love?? The fact that their products are not only amazing but also the fact that money money is being used towards great causes. Not only does the store fight animal testing, they also ethical source their ingredients, respect the environment, and donate proceeds to charity through their product Charity Pot. This store has it all and does it all and thats why its one of my favorites.
  3. Nordstrom/ Nordstrom Rack– I like to think of this store as the magical wonderland of shopping. This is a department store that literally has it all. They carry everything from Top Shop to Joe Malone to Adidas. I could spend hours and hours in this store. (maybe not buying everything…but a girl gets to look!) I would say one of the best thing about this store is their return policy, it’s not questions asked even without a receipt. So, for those who seem to always loose that pesky piece of paper, this store is a dream.

 

Why I love to shop:

Well above all, shopping brings me joy. But also, for me, shopping can be all sorts of things. It can be a getaway from the stress of everyday life or that special time to hangout with your best friend and talk. Shopping can also be just looking without having to buy a single thing. When I do actually buy something though, I love the feeling of treating myself and getting myself something that I have had my eye on. Even better, what I love the most about shopping is shopping for the deal. Its knowing I can buy something that normally retails for $100 and get it for $50. By doing that, I’m able to get what I want or maybe afford a nicer item without having to break the bank.
