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?!



Bella Eyeshadows

I am a big fan of the brand Milani from the drug store.  I am always impressed by their quality! I have read amazing reviews on their Bella Eyes eyeshadow and decided to give them a try!   I went into CVS and bought the shade “Bella Champagne”.  I figured I would try one to see how I like them.  I picked this shade because it’s a shimmery brown shade that you could wear every day.  I now understand why these eyeshadows have such hype!  Great pigment and a beautiful color selection!

So… I later go into K-Mart and see a clearance basket filled with Milani eyeshadows and a bunch of other products! I literally could not believe my (Bella) eyes! Of course the store was closing in about 15 minutes, so I went crazy searching through what I would consider a dream come true!


As you can see… I did pretty well under such pressure! I probably looked crazy, but it was worth it!  I got 5 shadows! Two of them were .99 cents and three were $1.99!  The one I had purchased at CVS was $4.49.  I was so excited to be getting these great shadows for so cheap! I refuse to buy them from CVS now knowing I could pay a lot less elsewhere!

The colors I got were :

Bella Pink

Bella Espresso

Bella Charcoal

Bella White

Bella Cafe

So, remember… check clearance ALWAYS!   You never know what fabulous makeup you can find!  Unless I got there first! 😉

All about that glow

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we can’t have a pretty summer glow!

Milani Baked Bronzer in “Glow” is a gorgeous shade with a light shimmer.  I use this bronzer on my cheek bones only because it works as a highlight as well.  Even though the shimmer is minimal I wouldn’t want it all over my face.  Applying it to your cheek bones adds a nice color and glow without being too much.   I am currently so pale, so this is a great product to give my face a little more color!

Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands!  Their quality and packaging looks and feels so high end.
