Christmas Glam • Kylie Edition | 2016

Hey guys! I ran a poll on Twitter to see what Christmas look y’all wanted done this year…. and shockingly (not), glam won! If you want to have your say in future posts, please go to @beautybreakbets and click that follow button! We have already hit over 90 followers there and I am so thankful!!

For the sake of the post, I decided I would start with all of my face makeup and eyebrows done, so we could just focus on the eyes…

Primer: Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer. Foundation: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in the shade fairConcealer: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Setting powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Brows: ABH Brow Wiz and Clear Brow Gel. Bronzer: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil in Medium/dark. Blush: Amy Head Fresh & Lovely. Highlight: Becca Opal.

I just wanted to insert this picture to show you guys what shades I will be using from the Holiday Palette, for those of you who don’t want to continue reading!

First things first, I went in with Makeup Geek Beaches and Cream and Creme Brulee for my transition shade. Then, I used a fluffy Estee Lauder blending brush and went in with the shade Chestnut in my crease and outer corner. It is such a beautiful shadow that has found it’s way into my top favorite shadows!fullsizeoutput_3012Next, I took my Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Brush and applied the shade Frosty, which is that silvery color, all over my lid. I did end up doing a second layer using eyedrops to make it just a tad more intense… You could probably get away without it, since it does have a ton of pigment, but why not be extra at Christmas?!

After I applied the silver on my lid, I decided that it needed a darker color on the outer corner, because it just wasn’t popping like I wanted it to… So, I added this beautiful deep matte purple, Silent Night, and blended it into my outer corner and crease! I, personally, wanted to stay in the purple family, but a good black could be so awesome as well! (The first time I did this look was actually with Makeup Geek Corrupt instead. Follow this link to find it!)

I also put a little bit of Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma to the corner of my eye and under the brow bone!

From there, I used my Maybelline Blackest Black Gel Liner to add a small wing.

After that, I curled my lashes and applied the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer and then the Perversion Mascara!

To top off the look, I applied my Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Bow and Arrow! I absolutely love, love, LOVE this lip color– it is so great for winter/fall!

I hope you guys enjoyed this Christmas tutorial and that it sparked some inspiration for your festivities!

Lazy Night Skincare Routine | 2016

Hey guys! I saw where Nicole Gurriero did her “lazy day skincare routine” a couple of weeks ago, and I decided I would do the same! (Copycat, I know. I’m sorry.)

I have been wanting to show off my favorite skincare products for a while now, but didn’t want to put 15+ products on a blog post.. I mean, who would actually want to read that much?

I do slack off on my skincare routine every once in a while because it is so much and sometimes sleep is just more important.. college students feel my pain, yeah?

So without further ado, here is my not-doing-much-but-really-doing-a lot skincare routine!

Before doing makeup or skincare, it is so so SO important to wash your hands, no matter what! You don’t want nasty germs going on your face, right?

  1. Step one for me is taking off my makeup! I have been using the Purity One-Step facial cleanser for almost a year now. I feel like I have to work harder than I want to to get everything off my face with this, but my skin doesn’t react to it so I just keep buying.
    • With this cleanser I use my Foreo for combination skin to really get my pores clean. I really don’t know what I would do without this thing. It has been a key item in my skincare routine for over three years now!
  2. Step two is my favorite face wash, Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. This was recommended to me from a dermatologist in high school, and I have been using it pretty much since then!
  3. Step three is usually one of two things… I either go in with a mask or use my Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimizer. This really depends on my mood and what my skin needs at the time! However, I only use the Pore Minimizer three nights a week, lazy night or not.
  4. After this, I go in with my Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum. I have really seen a difference in my skin while using this product. It has definitely helped with brightening up my complexion and clearing up texture.
  5. My last step on a lazy night is either an oil or a moisturizer. I use the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light or the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion which are my two faves!

Well guys, that’s it for my lazy night routine! I hope you enjoyed getting a sneak peak into my skincare routine!

I might do another post with the products I left out of this one, so let me know in the comments below if you would like to see that!

Life Update | 2016

Hey guys and happy holiday season! I hope this post finds you all doing great and as excited to celebrate Christmas as I am! It is FINALLY getting cold in Mississippi, my tree is decorated, and my last day of class was last Friday! So you know what that means…. FINALS WEEK IS FINALLY HERE!!!! I have been getting a max of four hours of sleep each night night, so we’ll see what this week brings. Hopefully it goes better than expected…

I just want to apologize for being MIA yet again. I have been swamped with school work this semester and am preparing for finals as we speak! Since it was my first semester back full time (more than full time really), I needed a chance to figure out how blogging would fit into my schedule, and obviously didn’t do a very good job. BUT, I am trying my best to fix that and thankfully have a month to figure it out before classes start back again.

This semester has been a huge change for me… From declaring my major for the 57th time to Integrated Marketing Communications with Public Relations and Sports Communications specialties, to being Prayer Group Leader in Phi Lamb, cousins getting engaged, and finally pledging and becoming an official member of Alpha Phi Fraternity! Things have been a whirlwind and I hope you guys can understand where I am coming from and be patient with me.

Y’all.. I am seriously so excited for the things to come and the posts I have coming up this month! I have several product reviews and holiday looks coming soon, so keep your eyes pealed for that!

Don’t forget to meet me at here each SUNDAY and WEDNESDAY (starting December 11th) during the months of December and January for brand new posts!
