These are the products that I swear by! My go-to makeup !


First of all I would probably die without the beauty blender.  I love love love it!  I cannot say enough good things about the Beauty Blender.  In my opinion it is the best tool to apply makeup.  I use it to apply my foundation, concealer, and powder. It’s a game changer.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation is such a beautiful foundation.  I have discovered that applying it with a dry beauty blender works best for me because it is a very watery foundation.  It makes your skin look flawless and never looks cakey!

Milani Matte lipstick in the shade “Naked” is such a great color for every day. It’s a perfect nude!  Milani’s lipsticks are great quality and inexpensive.

NYX is another brand that never lets me down!  I tend to use this blush a lot! It is in the shade “Pinched”.

MaxFactor 2000 Calorie Mascara is incredible.  Gives my lashes tons of volume and never clumpy!

What are some of your all time favorites that you couldn’t live without?!




A lot of work goes into applying makeup!  Depending on the look… there can be a lot of steps and products involved. So, we need our makeup to last and last and last!

The Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powder REALLY does keep your makeup looking fresh all day!


I love this powder for many reasons!

  •  It’s an amazing way to set your makeup so it stays in place, but it also gives my skin a softer appearance.
  • Setting your concealer is a must to avoid it from creasing and this powder has never let me down!
  • My shade is Translucent and it never leaves my skin with a white cast.  Also, if I have a picture taken with a flash on it doesn’t white out my face like other powders can do.
  • My skin is dry, but I can have a little shine once in a while.  You will be shine free .. guarenteed!
  • Lightweight and doesn’t irritate my skin.



Don’t mind if I do

I decided to check out Sephora on Cyber Monday because I was long due for some new beauty supplies! My beauty blender was getting old and I have been looking for a new shampoo.  So I waited until Cyber Monday to see if they had any good deals.

I found a promo code call PARTYPICKS that allows you to pick from 3 different choices of samples and a clutch. I LOVE free beauty samples!  Next to diamonds, they are a girl’s best friend! You never know what new product you might end up loving!

I am so excited to try these new samples!  So far, I have tried the Roller Lash mascara, the JackBlack lip therapy, and the Makeup Forever Lip Gloss.

I love the mascara and the lip balm, but I think the Make Up Forever lip gloss is nothing special.  A basic lip gloss that didn’t have much pigment at all.

What kind of deals did you find for Cyber Monday?!
