This post is a bit late but I finally feel like I’m getting back into my usual routine which means I will continue my weekly posts on here 🙂
This haul is a mix of things I picked up while on vacation and things I received when I was gone. Matte & Metallics are having a moment in my daily routine right now so I had to add to the obsession…
Dark lips are my absolute FAVORITE trend. Besides neutral lips, I tend to gravitate towards vampy sultry colors at any makeup counter. One of the reasons being it can dress up any simple look into a classy yet sophisticated one. I thought I would share my go-to choices!
Packing makeup to travel with stresses me out a bit. One of the main reasons is because I want to bring my whole vanity. I’ve learned that I need to pack smart (not light because let’s be honest that’s not gonna happen.) AND it gives me the opportunity to use all the mini little cute beauty products I have hoarded over time to put to good use! Since I am going to Hawaii in a few days I thought I would pack a bit early and share with you guys what I bring with me when traveling to hot/humid island areas. (Lanikai Beach | Photo by ME.)
Liquid lipsticks are having a moment right now in the beauty world and I absolutely love it. I’ve actually had these products for a while but thought it was the perfect time to share my thoughts about them since a lot are good color choices for fall!
This was definitely an impulse buy. I would think of any reason not to buy this palette because I have a million and one but once I saw it sold out on Sephora.com and Ulta.com I panicked and bought it on Nordstrom.com
I have been a HUGE Lora Arellano admirer for quite sometime now and she has been an inspiration for me too. When she started Melt Cosmetics with fellow Beauty Dana Bomar I became an instant fan. I’ve waited so long to get this product just because of the price was a bit high for me and it always sold out so quick. A few months ago it finally came back in stock and with a swiftness I made the purchase I wanna say within the first 2 minutes it went live. 🙂
Each month I plan on sharing a list of products I have my eye on (old/new products) which I probably don’t need but that never stopped me anyways 😉
I’m the type of person to not really touch up my makeup throughout the day. When I put my makeup on in the beginning of the day I intend for it to stay put of course 🙂 The only thing I touch up would be my bottom eye liner and lips. And since this is my makeup bag that I take to work it has a lot of easy basic grab n go items.
Not a lot of makeup show events come to the Bay Area so when I found out The Makeup Show Pop-up was coming to town there was no question I had to stop by! It was basically like a mini IMATS which was great since I’ve never been to one yet. It was super crowded but definitely worth it! I’m very proud of myself for not going too crazy… Thank god I made lists! (Picture above via: @themakeupshow on IG) Here’s a quick overview of what I got:
