First Morphe Brushes | 2015

YES YES YESSSS! Today is such a happy day!! My first three Morphe brushes finally came in! I ordered these brushes because 1- I needed new brushes and wanted to try these out, and 2- Everyone I know who has Morphe brushes absolutely loves them!Eeeek! Can you hear me squealing all the way from Mississippi?! These are my brand new Morphe brushes! I could NOT be more excited to finally have them in my hands!The first one I got is the M439-Deluxe Buffer. I’ve never been a foundation brush girl, my mom raised me using a sponge and then I went to a Beauty Blender. Jaclyn Hill convinced me to buy this in one of her recent videos. This brush has already completely converted me from sponges, and I haven’t even used it yet! I love how short and fat it is. It’s not as big around as I thought it was going to be, but it’s still really nice. I am SO excited to use this!The second brush I got is the E4-Angled Contour brush. I like that it’s kind of rounded instead of a harsh angle like some of the ones out there are. I’m so excited to contour and bronze my face with this!Last, but definitely not least, is the M438-Pointed Contour brush! I will be using this brush to set the under eye area. It’s small enough to get right next to the lower lash line but big enough to cover the entire area. I love this one already, too!

Alright, that’s it for this post. I think you probably already know this, but I am so beyond excited to use them! From what I can tell, I’m really going to love these brushes. I mean, I’m already completely obsessed and wanting more! They’re super soft and feel so great to the touch. Hope you all enjoyed!

Mini Ulta Haul | 2015

Hey y’all! I went to Ulta today for new foundation, and, of course, didn’t leave with just that. (Shh, don’t tell my parents.) So, I wanted to share my new additions with y’all!Aaaah! I can’t contain my excitement! I’m just so in love with every product I bought and can’t wait to use them!The first thing I bought, and what I went in for, is the Too Faced Born This Way foundation in the shade Ivory

I’ve been using the Urban Decay Naked Weightless foundation, but this week it started leaking oil out of the pump, breaking up on my face, and making me look kind of orange. So I had to, very reluctantly, throw it away. It was a sad day.. So, I used a sample of this for the Ole Miss football game last Saturday and I absolutely fell in love! At Ulta, a consultant told me this was her favorite foundation and it just confirmed the reason I wanted it. It’s a full coverage, oil-free foundation and is really great for combination/oily skin. Even though it’s full coverage, I don’t feel like my face is caked with makeup which is why I really love this foundation!This is the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. I have been wanting this setting spray for a long time, but every time I’ve gone to Ulta or Sephora it’s been sold out. I have heard awesome things about this product and cannot wait to start using it!     Next I have the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Fig. OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS COLOR. It is so beautiful! I don’t do deep lips other than red because it can make me look kind of hard but this…. Oh man. It’s the perfect mauvey purple! Definitely a must-have in your collection. I want more of the Melted Lipsticks because this one is perfection! This is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Bad Blood (brb while I channel my inner Taylor Swift.) I’ve been in serious need of a red lip pencil because, let’s be real, my lips are always red. The last one I got is a brick red, I needed more of a firetruck red and this one is perfect! Some lip pencils tend to dry out my lips but this one is more creamy. Really excited about this! Last, but not least, is a mint eos! I got this one AGAIN because I always seem to lose mine…or they get stolen. This is my favorite Chapstick ever, I carry one everywhere I go.

Well, that’s it for my first and last Ulta haul of 2015! Hope you enjoyed it!

Mallory’s Semiformal Look!

Hey y’all! This is a very exciting post for me because it’s my first makeup tutorial, and it was the first time I did someone else’s makeup! YAY!! The beautiful young lady in the picture below is my best friend and Big, Mallory. I was fortunate enough to do her makeup for the Phi Lamb Semiformal last Friday. I had an absolute blast and wanted to share! I really hope you all enjoy! Since Mallory and I do not have the same skin type or color, I decided to use a mixture of her products and mine. I used her foundation, bronzer, and Naked palette. The rest are from my collection.

After applying moisturizer and some of her Mary Kay Eye Primer, I did her eyeshadow first to prevent any fallout from ruining the rest of her face.

I started out using the Naked 2 palette with the shade Bootycall on her lid and in the crease, then I blended Tease in the outer corner to middle of her lid and crease, and Suspect on the outer corner. I wanted to pull in a little bit of purple to make her eyes pop, so I blended in Estée Lauder Provocative Plum into the outer corner and crease. After applying the amount of purple I wanted, I went back to the Naked 2 palette and used Verve in the inner corner and under the brows to finish the shadow.

I then used Amy Head Creme Liner in Pearl in a pretty dramatic wing. I finished her eyes with two coats of Maybelline Turbo Volum’ Express mascara in very black!

Since her eyebrows are basically perfect and don’t need to be filled in, I went over them with Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to keep them in place.  After doing her eyes, I applied her Mary Kay luminous-wear liquid foundation. I put a dab of product on her forehead, nose, under her eyes, cheeks, and chin and blended it out over the rest of her face to create a flawless finish.

Then, I put Amy Head Highlite Powder under her eyes to set her under eye area.

After that, I used Mary Kay mineral powder foundation as a bronzer/contour, making a 3 on both sides of her face. Then I applied a light amount of NARS blush to the apples of the cheeks, blending upward to the top of her cheeks.

Then, I used my favorite highlight, Becca + Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop, on the apples of the cheeks, middle of her forehead, down the nose, her Cupid’s bow, and chin!

After that, I took an Amy Head powder brush and lightly swept it over her face, avoiding her eyes, to create a smoother finish.

Mallory decided on this deep lip so we used Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Iris! Which definitely makes the look. Products Used:

  • Estée Lauder Resilience Lift moisturizer.
  • Mary Kay luminous-wear liquid foundation in the shade Beige 5.
  • Mary Kay mineral powder foundation in Beige 1.5. (Used as bronzer)
  • NARS Super Orgasm blush.
  • Becca + Jaclyn Hill highlight Champagne Pop.
  • Amy Head Highlite Powder in Gold Lustre.
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 pallet.
  • Estée Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Provocative Plum.
  • Amy Head Creme Liner in Pearl.
  • Maybelline Turbo Volum’ Express mascara.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
  • Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Iris.

My Skin!

Hey everyone! I’m going to start my makeup posts within the next few days. Before I get into that, I wanted do a general post about my skin that would be easy to find so you wouldn’t have to read through other ones to get this information.

Skin: I have combination, sensitive skin. I’m oily in my T-Zone which is where I tend to break out, and more normal everywhere else. I have an olive/golden skin tone and usually get pretty tan/bronze in the summer!

Face shape: I have a round/oval face.

Eyes: Hazel, almond shaped, and they’re pretty sensitive. I have to wear glasses when I’m at sporting events where I’m far away from the game, in class, or driving because I have a weaker right eye. 

Lips: I have a small top lip with a fuller bottom one. 

Hair: I have long, brown hair with caramel highlights,  that I get done at Juve in Memphis!

Alright, that’s pretty much it for this post! It’s not a very fun one, but I felt the need to do it. Thanks for reading!

Xoxo.

In no particular order, let’s start with Cubic.

MAC Cubic MAC Cubic

Cubic is a satin finish. MAC’s description is “soft muted pink”. This was my first ever MAC blush and it was picked out for me by the SA. Its one of those blushes that doesn’t wow you in the pan, but its a very subtle, natural looking, neutral blush for fair skin. This one…
