Current Favorite Makeup / April 2016

I want to make sharing my current makeup must haves/favs a regular thing because the makeup I use changes so regularly when I do have a fav its a big deal (to me at least) and at minimum its worth sharing.
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom

First the ELF brush, this brush is fan shaped and it works as a great and quick sculpting tool for bronzer. If you want a precise contour this isn't the brush you want but for bronzer its perfect I love it.

Second the Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette has just been my absolute fav since I purchased it. I love the warm tones. Also I smells like PB&J how do you not love that. I highly recommend getting it while you can before it sells out.

Third the butter bronzer is a perfect everyday bronzer. My real everyday makeup it limited to tinted moisturizer or bb cream, mascara (brow and eyelash), bronzer, and a lip. and for those days this bronzer is the best not to mention it smells sooo good, kinda like a pina colada. If you don't like really fragrant things I wouldn't recommend it.

Fourth, like I said my real everyday makeup is limited and this brow mascara is for those days. It helps make my brows look fuller and helps them stay in place. and its only $3!!  

Fifth and last is this awesome setting powder. I wanted to try some setting powders out because some of my foundations were looking a little oily or two shiny on me. Also I wanted something to help my makeup last but more specifically my concealer. This is one of the setting powders I purchased. I love this one in particular because 1. its brightening and I need that 2. it smells like vanilla 3. its does the job I need to do as far as being a setting powder and 4. I love the vintage packaging (Always a sucker for packaging) 

It seems Ive been loving things that smell good.. lol.
So those are my current must haves/favorites what are some of yours right now?

All about them Brows

It was requested more than once that I do a video on how I fill in my brows so you asked and I answered. In the video I go over the different ways I fill them in with different products.

There are three different categories of brow products, I show you a couple examples of each and here are the products I mention (Click the name of each product to go to where you can purchase it, see pricing and colors, or for more information)

Brow Powders:
Brow Bar to Go : My go to brow powder pretty warm colors
Morphe 35O palette : Great eyeshadow palette with a nice grey brow that I use for my brows

Brow Pencils:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz : My favorite brow pencil that Ive used so far
Universal Eyebrow Pencil by Ofra: another great high end pencil
Loreal Brow Stylist Definer: My favorite drugstore eyebrow pencil. Close dupe for the brow whiz.

Brow Pomade:
Anastasia Beverly Hils Dipbrow Pomade: Weird to get used to but creates perfect brows
E.L.F Eyebrow Kit: Not a dupe but a great option if you want to test out a pomade without spending the money.

One Year With Ipsy!

I have officially been subscribed to Ipsy for one whole year! I was sure I would get tired of it but Im not. I just cant stop wont stop, I love Ipsy. I used to do Ipsy looks based off of whatever was in my bag and in honor of being with Ipsy for a year I thought Id do it again. This bag had some awesome stuff for doing a look with, so let get into it!

Here is my February 2016 Glam Bag aka my one year bag.  

Here's What I Got: 
Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in I'm Kind of a Big Deal 
Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment in Sierra Nevada #05
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil 
Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in Pink Sequin 
Margaret Dabbs London miniture crystal nail file

First off I love the design of this bag. Its so cute. I always keep one in my bag filled with necessities and this one is replacing my current one for sure. I loooove all the items in this months bag, well the nail file is kinda whatever. I was in need of a new one so, still useful, but kind of whatever. The lip gloss is by far my favorite. I need a full size/more. I love how glittery it is. I LOVE glitter. And speaking of, the brown glittery eye shadow.. HELLO beautiful. The nail polish is cute, I had a similar color but it dried out so it was nice to get another cute pink back in my collection. The primer oil I was SO excited to try. I love using oils so this was totally up my alley. Ive used it a couple times before makeup and once at night. It does make your skin soft and moisturized. As far as being a primer, I dont feel like Ive used in a way that I can give a proper review but I like it so far! 

On to the look

These pictures do not do the lip gloss justice but I do love how it all turned out! Let me know how you liked your Ipsy bag this month! If you don't have an Ipsy subscription but you are interested let me know!
