    Prom [Chaperone] FOTD

    This past Thursday, I chaperoned my 5th prom! I can’t believe I’ve been to that many proms. I thought it would be fun to post a FOTD and show some of the products I used. I used Sephora’s Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation as my foundation and Benefit‘s Porefessional as my primer (not pictured) to create a flawless base. Next, I used Smashbox’s #ShapeMatters palette for my eyeshadow, contour, and highlight. There are also brow powders included, but I continued using my IT Cosmetics pencil that I’ve been using. This palette is so comprehensive, but surprisingly does not contain a blush which is a shame because this could totally be an all-in-one palette! I…

    MAC Ellie Goulding FOTD

    Happy Wednesday! I’m back with another FOTD post since I enjoyed putting together my last one so much.

As soon as I saw the promo pictures released from this collection, I knew I had to get a few pieces. The shades and products were right up my alley.

I used the MAC blush in “I’ll Hold My Breath”, the palette in “Halcyon Nights”, and the patentpolish lip pencil in “Revved”. I…

    Urban Decay FOTD

    Happy Easter! I hope all of you who celebrate have a wonderful and hopefully sunny day while celebrating with friends and/or family. It’s been a while since I’ve done any sort of face of the day (fotd) post. Back in my first year of blogging, I used to share the makeup products I was wearing on a weekly basis, but I stopped doing that because it was getting to be super repetitive. So I thought I’d share a simple look I wore the other day just because 3 of the main products I used were from Urban Decay. It’s not a one-brand look because I don’t own an Urban Decay foundation…

    New Passport FOTD

    It’s about that time for me to renew my passport and while I still have a couple months to go I decided to get it done now. Waiting until the last minute for (certain) things gives me anxiety so I’d rather get it done way in advance and not have to worry about it. So last weekend, I went to get my picture taken to mail in. A passport picture, like a new driver’s license, is going to have to last you a while so you want to look good. Obviously, you still want to look like yourself, but like the best natural version of yourself! I thought it might…
