March Finds

IMG_1337-001

I cannot believe it is already April! March flew by -although I can’t pretend that I’m sad to see winter (FINALLY) go. I wanted to share some of my favorite finds of the month. I don’t have a ton of favorites but they are all products that I love and would definitely recommend. Definitely found some goodies this month that I will be using all throughout spring!

Beauty in Simplicity

IMG_1094-002I’ve been loving really simple and natural makeup lately. This is my go to look for days when I want to look put together and nice but still very natural. I wore this makeup look probably everyday (or at least the days I actually wore makeup) in college. It’s so simple yet creates such a pretty look!

Spring Haul

IMG_1051-002

So big surprise – I went shopping! I went to the mall with a friend and wasn’t expecting to find or buy anything – boy was I wrong. I ended up getting lots of goodies. I’m a big sale shopper – when I see good deals, I just can’t resist. Both Target & Cotton On were having great sales (Target on shoes). All the stores have such springy things out now and I love it! I wanted to share my recent…

Quick Review: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

What is it?

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is a finishing powder. It gives your skin the appearance of being in really flattering light. According to Hourglass, the powders capture, diffuse, and soften the way the light hits your skin to give you a luminescent appearance. Basically, they cast a very flattering glowy finish. They all have a powdery texture and require very minimal…

Get your Green On: St. Paddy’s Day

Get your Green On: St. Paddy’s Day

cropped finish

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I loveSt. Patrick’s Day. It’s probably one of my favorite days of the year (kinda weird, I know). Between all the green, irish music, irish food, and beer – I just think it’s a blast. (Plus I’m Irish and it’s around my birthday!) St. Patrick’s Day seems to be one of those holidays/celebrations that a lot of people don’t really change their makeup for. Green…

Running Late Makeup Essentials

Running Late Makeup Essentials

If there’s one thing I’ve masted since entering the “real world” (aka life beyond college), it’s how to make yourself look like you tried when you really didn’t. These are some of my go to tips for those mornings when I’ve hit the snooze button a few too many times. If I’m going to be at work all day, I want to at least look nice and put together – even if I’m exhausted. I’ve pretty much got this…

My Top 3: Bronzer

My Top 3: Bronzer

IMG_0753-002

I absolutely love bronzer. If I had to choose only 2 makeup products to use on a daily basis, it would be bronzer and mascara. I’ve definitely tried my fair share of bronzers throughout the years. For my fellow pale girls, you know the struggle is real. No one wants to be that person looking like an oompa loompa wearing bronzer that is way too orange. These are my current top 3 bronzers. They…

The Bedtime Wind Down

The Bedtime Wind Down

IMG_0658-001

After a long stressful day, there is nothing better than washing up and climbing into bed. My favorite part of the day is when I can get into my pajamas, wash my face, and relax. Especially after long 13 hour days, there is no better feeling than washing off all my makeup and moisturizing my dry winter skin.

The first step in my nighttime routine is taking off my makeup. My favorite eye makeup…

The Easiest DIY Lip Scrub

The Easiest DIY Lip Scrub

As I’ve said before, I am obsessed with lip products. I am always trying new things to give me soft and silky lips. I hate winter for a lot of reasons but constant dry and chapped lips are definitely on the top of my list. I found this super easy lip scrub DIY and had to share. It not only takes minutes to make but it contains ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Enjoy!

Sally Hansen Sandstorm

 

I just bought this color the other day and I’m absolutely loving it! I was originally planning on buying Essie Sand Tropez but as much as I love Essie products – it pains me to spend $8 on a nail polish. I found Sandstorm which is similar to Sand Tropez but was only about $3 at Target. It’s a beautiful sandy beige color. I can’t get enough of it! I applied 2 coats but…
