Hey beauties! I wanted to make a quick post about my makeup today. Recently I haven’t been feeling myself and mostly that has to do with the fact that I dont get ready with a full face of makeup and a cute outfit everyday because of work.
I also barely have time to do anything I want to accomplish personally. Could I sit down and time manage every minute I have and make it work? Yes. I’m sure there are people out there way busier than I am that can manage everything they want to do. But in reality, that’s not me. I don’t think it’s a lack of time management skills as much as it is a blatant disregard of my own needs.
Today was one of the days that my skin looked great and although I threw my hair back in a bun, I felt a little bit more like myself. I only wore foundation, Fenty Beauty Contouring Stick Trio, some blush, setting powder and some mascara. I felt good about my makeup today. I think I might be a tad hard on myself for not accomplishing the impossible (because my goals are sometimes a little too unrealistic– although I do shoot for the stars).

Hi beauties! A crazy thing had happened the other day, as I was about to help a friend by doing her makeup for an event I forgot that I ran out of setting spray earlier in the week. I had no other choice but to run to the drugstore before I went to her house to pick up some affordable setting spray. I chose the Wet N’ Wild Cucumber Photo Focus 3-in-1 Primer Water Prep+Set+ Refresh setting spray. I got it from my local Rite Aid for about $5 which is VERY affordable for a setting spray.
Hey beauties! My best friend and I went into a Sephora and we decided to go on a shopping spree. Well, needless to say I walked out of the Sephora with $350 of makeup. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be (lol)!
So what did I get that costed me this much?! I’m going to be hauling all of the stuff I purchased! Another haul? Again, I wouldn’t be surprised considering that’s one of my favorite kinds of posts.
Anyway, I usually don’t go into the Sephora stores I usually purchase my stuff online so this was actually a little different of an experience for me. Instead of shopping online and looking at all that I can get, I am actually playing with the makeup on display and testing things out. I also went into the Sephora store without a specific item in mind. I was just picking things out as I went along.
Here is what I got:
- Tarte Unleashed Palette
- Violet Voss Creme Brûlée Mini Palette
- Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder
- Eye Love Sephora Mini Palette
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette
- BECCA Cosmetics Collectors Edition Champagne POP Highlighter
- Tarte High Tides & Good Vibes Palette
- Natasha Denona Mini Sunset Palette
- (Not Pictured) Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette
- KVD Tattoo Liner
- Laura Mercier Lipstick
I am in love with all of the items I got. Sadly my highlighter was broken when I brought it home so I’ll have to exchange that but otherwise I have no problems!

Hey beauties! Since it’s finally summertime I think we are due for a best BB cream makeup list because in all honesty full coverage and even medium coverage foundation is just way too heavy to wear in this heat! This is makeup melting season everyone, so lets dive into the best BB creams to get this summer:
2. Dr. Jart+
4. Burt’s Bees
7. Too Faced
9. KIKO Milano
Hey beauties! I recently went out to a club with a couple of my friends and Ryan and I was so in love with my outfit and makeup that I just HAD to share it with y’a;ll! I wish I actually took better pictures of my makeup because I loved it THAT MUCH, but sadly we were in a rush to leave so I don’t have pictures showing my makeup in bright lights but I do have selfies and pictures from that night to give y’all an idea of what my makeup looked like!
For my outfit I actually ended up dragging Ryan with me to my go-to quick shopping store, Forever 21. Usually Ryan hates shopping with me because it’s basically a 5-hour event but he managed because I wanted to pick up an outfit really quick. I ended up finding an outfit that costed me no more than $17 which was such a deal! I got a bright coral/orange skirt with a silver zipper and a paired that skirt with a black sheer low plunging v-neck bodysuit and a pair of black sandal heels.
The outfit was definitely minimalistic, so I had to do something extravagant with my makeup. I started off with doing some bright coral/orange eyeshadow to match my skirt, but the look needed something. SO, I ended up blending the shadow to the inner corner of my eye and adding some vibrant teal glitter shadow in the middle of my lid for a spotlight eyeshadow look. I was obsessed with it and I added a black winged liner and some Lily Lashes to top the whole look off.

Hey beauties! I found a really interesting brand from the Dollar Tree the other day. I wanted to try something from the brand that didn’t involve makeup so I chose the silisponges they have! In this post I will be testing the quality and outcome of my foundation with the silisponge from the Dollar Tree and the silisponge from Milk Makeup.
Dollar Tree Silisponge
For each sponge I am using my FIT Me liquid foundation from Maybelline. The Dollar Tree Silisponge right off the bat seems a lot thicker but the edges are very harsh and the “skin” on the silisponge is not on there very tight. As I applied the makeup it seemed pretty easy to move the makeup around but it was very hard to blend. I already know that silisponges are hard to blend in general. But each time I tried to blend out a hard to reach area (bridge of my nose) the sponge would wrinkle and make the uneven foundation worse. It’s important to mention that the makeup that was rubbed on there permanently stained the “skin” of the silisponge. I tried all different soaps, even Dawn wouldn’t get it off.
Milk Makeup Silisponge
The Milk Makeup is $14 in comparison to the only $1 Dollar Tree silisponge but I can tell that whatever this one is made of, the “skin” is tighter and the edges are a little smoother. When applying the makeup it was easier to blend due to the firmness of the silisponge and it is smaller so it can get in those hard to reach places. But overall silisponges are not easy to use to blend makeup out so I don’t like them in general.
For the silisponge face off I think Milk Makeup wins because it did have a better and more pleasant performance. Plus, they get brownie points for the cute design of theirs with the sparkles.
