L'oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliners: Black and Brown- Ulta $8.99

I have to admit that eyeliners are my arch nemesis at times. When it comes to eyeliners, I need something that is easy to work with. I found that in this pencil. Because it’s a jumbo pencil, it actually helps keep my hand more steady. I love the black, as its dark and rich in color. The pencil is very creamy and when applied it looks very smooth. If you want a thin line or a thicker line you can accomplish that with this pencil. If you want to smudge your eyeliner, this pencil is great for that too. It comes with a pencil sharpener, which is a plus so you don’t have to find a jumbo size pencil sharpener. I also love the brown as I use that on my lower lash line. The brown gives a subtle more natural look. Sometimes black on the lower lash can look too harsh, depending on the look you’re going for.

Essie nail polish: A Cut Above- Target $6.99
It’s a beautiful pinkish/rosy color with big chunks of glitter. The glitter is sooo saturated throughout the nail polish that it can worn by itself or layered on top of another nail polish.  I apply 3 coats to achieve a full coverage nail. The color is pretty long lasting as I went about 4-5 days without any chipping.

Urban Decay Naked Palette- Ulta $50.00

This palette has been out for awhile. Actually a newer one was released recently, Naked 2.  I’ve had this palette for a while but I have recently been using this as my go to eye palette. Primarily because it has beautiful neutral and highly pigmented colors which are perfect for work. When doing my eye makeup for work you want something quick and easily accessible. I don’t have time to use various colors from various palettes. My go to colors of the palette is Half Baked( beautiful copper-gold color) on my lid. Buck (brown matte color) in my crease. Virgin (satin finish highlight color) as the highlight for my brow bone. Three colors, three minutes and I’m out the door!!

Maybelline Dream Nude Air Foam Foundation- Target $8.99

I bought this foundation on a whim and was happily surprised. This is a nice foundation that dispenses into a foam consistency. It has a dispensable pump allowing you to control how much product you use. Maybelline claims that this foundation provides a flawless finish and I would have to agree. After I apply and set my foundation, my skin looks smooth and perfect, not even looking like I have foundation on. The foundation is very lightweight and provides light to medium coverage. It’s ideal for someone who is needing to even their skin tone, however if you need a full coverage foundation this will not be optimal. I am shade Caramel, there are 2 shades darker than that. Remember if your shade isn’t available, you can always mix 2 colors to achieve your perfect, custom shade.

Completely random I know!!! But for the month of March I have had this song in heavy rotation!! I LOVE this song. Adele’s voice is beautiful and breathtaking. Not only is her voice impeccable but so is her style. Her vintage, 1960's look is gorgeous and simply classic. #teamadele.

Hope you guys enjoyed!!
