2015 went by incredibly fast I really can’t believe its 2016. This has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding years I’ve had in a while and I have a lot of positive and exciting things to look forward to for 2016. Now that I have a clean slate for the new year of fresh ideas for twenty five sundays I thought I would start off with my top 15 of 2015 that were thoroughly loved and repurchased throughout the year.

When I wake up in the morning I look forward to putting my makeup on. But sometimes my bed wins and traps me for 10 more minutes so I have less time to do my morning routine. I figured out a fool proof 5 minute face that I can do and rush out the door without looking like a sleepy head.
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!
Its safe to say Hawaii is basically my second home.. if you truly know me you already know this.. specifically Oahu. I try to go at least once or twice a year. One of my best friends has lived out there for a few years now so that is another reason for my frequent visits. It’s hard to sum up everything I did but I’ll give you a pretty good summary of my whole trip.
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!
