What’s in My Makeup Bag (February 2020)

It’s been a while since I blogged about makeup, but I have been using some makeup products I absolutely love this year and need to share them with you!

Frozen II Collection from Colourpop

I fell victim to the pretty packaging on this eyeshadow, and I happen to be a fan of Frozen. #girlmom So this fun Anna-inspired eyeshadow palette was a great impulse buy. The gold glitter is what ultimately sold me! (I’m a HUGE eyeshadow addict. I think I buy it even more often than lip products!)

All the shades are highly-pigmented and do not crease. The deep purple hues are perfectly plum and subdued- subtle enough for day time! read more


Gift Guide: Easy Gifts for Women

I often find that I always see gifts I want to buy the ladies in my life, but when it comes time to do holiday shopping, I freeze up. Anyone else?! So I put together this holiday gift guide (or any time gift guide!) for women that’s chock full of easy peasy gifts! You can give them alone or bundle a few together!

What I love most about them is that they are mostly one-size-fits-all (with the exception of the vest, but thats an easy one because it doesn’t have sleeves!). You won’t have the stress of wondering if your gift will fit the recipient, and in my opinion, anyone should be happy to receive these cute pieces! read more

5 Things I’m Currently Crazy About: Beauty Edition

Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil

For the longest time, I didn’t know what to use on my brows. The easiest thing for me to do was use a chocolate brown color from an eyeshadow palette to fill them in!

I picked up this Maybelline Eyebrow Definer Pencil because it looked easy to use and didn’t require a sharpener. I am hooked!

All I do is lightly outline my brows with it and then fill them in with short strokes. Then, I use the brush end to make everything more tame and uniform. My brows haven’t looked this good probably ever! read more
