Makeup Product Fails

For the most part the makeup that I have used is great and I love it but every once in a while I have a product that does not meet my expectations!  Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I still had in my makeup drawer that I never reach for because I simply did not like them.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil

Eyebrows are one of the most important things when it come to doing my makeup so when I ran out of my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, I obviously had to restock.  Because I was still not financially stable at this time, I looked around for a good dupe.  NYX is one of my go-to drugstore brands so I was excited to see that they had an eyebrow pencil similar to the Brow Wiz.  I was not sure how I felt about the pencil at first but a gave it a couple a chances before I decided how to feel about it.  Keep reading to see if this pencil is a hit or miss! Enjoy!

Everyday Makeup Routine

We all have our go to makeup routine that is quick and easy for everyday wear.  Mine has started to change a bit, at least in the eye area.  This makeup routine is what I will normally wear to work because it takes out the thinking and I get more time in bed! I also don’t normally wear makeup days that I am not doing anything, unless I feel bored.

So let’s get right in to my everyday makeup routine!

My face makeup tends to be the same no matter what, I really like my foundation so I don’t feel the need to wear a different one on an everyday basis.   Continue reading

My Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products

Hello!!

Since getting more into makeup, I have definitely leaned more to high end makeup because they have better quality most of the time.  With that I have also gotten away from drugstore products but there are some products that I find amazing and cheap, which makes the product even better.  My two favorite drugstore brands that to me have high end qualities are NYX and e.l.f. Cosmetics.  Of course other brands have awesome products but these are the two drugstore brands I trust the most.

Anyway, here are my favorite drugstore products. Enjoy!

Hello!!

I thought I would share my daily makeup with you.  On the days I do wear makeup (which is not everyday) I usually wear this.  I may or may not wear eyeshadow, eyeliner, or lipstick but the rest of the makeup is what I have on for sure to feel like I am put together.  I have to mention the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz because this pencil is a game changer.  The pencil is tiny enough to precisely fill in your eyebrows and the spoolie brush on the other end is very convenient.  I use to shape my eyebrows and also to blend the product for a more natural look.  I also really recommend the ChapStick in the Candy Cane flavor because it smells like Christmas and it gives an amazing tingly feeling to your lips.
