Splurge Sunday!

Sometimes you have to treat yourself. I’m sure that just like me, you all like to splurge a little bit every now and then. I can tell you one thing, this MAC lipstick in the shade Diva is worth the splurge. This lipstick costs $17 and it is worth every penny.

It is a perfect matte burgundy color. The lipstick goes on smooth and it is perfect for all day wear. It can be a little drying, but I make sure to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day and it’s perfectly fine. I would recommend using a lip liner just to keep your lipstick from bleeding during the day.

MAC lipsticks will always hold a special place in my heart. The pigment is fantastic and they are great for long-wear. With the Holiday season coming around the corner this is the perfect product to add to your wish list, or maybe even treat yourself this year! Either way, you’re sure to look fabulous rocking Diva this winter.

Eyes That Sparkle and Shine

I’ve always been a big fan of glitz and glam, and that stands true when it comes to my eyeshadow. Sometimes you need a little something to take your eye makeup to the next level. This NYX Roll On Shimmer does just that. I have it in the shade Salmon¬†and I got it at Ulta for $3.99. It’s a nice dusty rose color.

I use this product to take my eye makeup from day to night. I apply the shimmer to only my lid and then shade around the outer edge of my eye and the crease. To help the product stick to your eyelid you may want to use an eyeshadow primer or a touch of concealer. Even without primer, this is a shimmer that will last you all through the night. This shadow is perfect for a night out, formal, or any other even where you want to add the perfect touch of glitz to your look.

Spooktacular Nails

I was browsing the nail polish section at Ulta a few days ago and I was having the hardest time deciding which polish to buy, as usual. I was debating between a bright coral and a sea foam green when this beautiful polish came into my line of sight. It was my obvious best choice because fall is finally here and Halloween is just around the corner.

This is an Essie polish in the shade Haute Tub. At first glance it seems like your average black nail polish, but when it catches the light it has a sort of purple shimmer to it. I feel like the purple glitter gives the polish a perfect spooky Halloween-type touch. The pictures don’t quite do it justice, but trust me this polish is beautiful. You can find it at Ulta for $8.50. Go out and get it so you can rock some fabulous spooktacular nails with me this Halloween!

Homecoming Tailgate: Get the Look

Get excited because it’s homecoming! Today is the homecoming football game at my school and I have to look fab¬†for the tailgate. I thought I’d give you a little overview of the products I used so you can look just as great for tailgates, football games, or any other events you might have going on. The look I have today is a little mixture of high end and budget beauty products, but worry not because there are cheaper substitutes for the high end products that I use. I will include all of the prices at the bottom of this post.

I started off with the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation and a touch of Maybelline Master Conceal concealer. I set my foundation and concealer with the Maybelline Fit Me matte poreless pressed powder. I also used NYX Born To Glow liquid illuminator in the shade Sunbeam on my cheekbones.

To add a little color back to my face I used Too Faced bronzer in the shade Sun Bunny Dark and blush in the shade Who’s Your Poppy. As a base for my eyeshadow I used Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in the shade Barely Branded. I used Tarte eyeshadow in the shades Champagne & Chocolat and Tea for Two in the creases of my eyes.
