New Beauty Products

Hellooooo!! So, I haven’t done a post about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on some of my new products! My sister is makeup obsessed and she is trying to convert me! I’m a clothes girl, but she says it is so worth it to splurge on good beauty products. I’m slowly purchasing a few new items here and there!

NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette: I love love this and highly recommend it! I’m not a contour pro yet, but I’m working on it! I don’t even use my other bronzers now! The palette is fab and so worth the money!

20150716-133852.jpg
Make Up Forever Duo Matte Powder: I’m not completely sold on this. I have been using it for 6 weeks or so and feel like I can find something better! I hear their liquid foundation is fab, so maybe I’ll give that a try! My skin has gone cray cray since becoming pregnant.. I usually have pretty clear and smooth skin. My skin keeps producing little bumps(not pimples?) and is kind of dry and definitely not smooth. If you have any suggestions on products or cleansers let me know!
Maybelline a Dream Fresh BB Cream: So, this is my first ever BB cream… I know I know.. I need to get with it. I really do like it! I thought I would try a cheaper brand and see what the hype is about before I splurge. I use the color medium/deep. When I use this I don’t have to apply a moisturizer before applying my makeup. It has pretty good coverage, but I do feel like it makes me look a little oily throughout the day.

NYX Matte Black Liner: I love this eyeliner! I like liquid liner the best, but when I’m in a hurry this is definitely my go to liner!

20150716-151158.jpg
Lancôme: I’m not sold on this just yet. I have read so many blog posts on how to get thicker lashes and a lot of girls recommend a lash primer/extender. I feel like it makes my lashes stick together after using it a few days in a row.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: I like this mascara so for! I go between using this and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! I will probably buy this product again!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m heading to Chicago to go see Taylor Swift with my sister! I’ll probably be the only pregnant girl, but I’m okay with that!

Xoxo,
Amanda

Makeup Must Haves!

Gooooood morning!! I hope you all are bundled up and staying warm! It is sooo cold here and is supposed to be even colder tomorrow.. Yippee(joking! Ha!) I look like a fluffy marshmallow right now!

My sister is super in to makeup, so she has been buying me new products(what a sweetie:) ) and trying to upgrade my products and brushes. Yikes! She has a lot of work to do! I usually put on a little bronzer and mascara and I’m good to go! I have never been good at hair or makeup, but I LOVE clothes! Obvi! I must say, I have grown pretty fond of MAC lippies and Too Faced bronzer! So, below are a few of favorites!!!

20150106-072008.jpg
Urban Decay: This is a must if you are usually in a hurry or like things as simple as possible when it comes to makeup!

20150106-072324.jpg
Too Faced: I use this bronzer all year round! I feel like it lasts forever! So worth the money!

20150106-072755.jpg
Stila: I’ve been using this for the last 3 years. I’ve tried a few other blushes, but keep going back to this one!

20150106-073517.jpg
Too Faced: This is a must! Thank me later!

20150106-073721.jpg
Smashbox: Like the Stila blush, I’ve been using this for the last 3 years. I can’t find anything I like as well! This primer definitely helps your foundation stay on better! I have oily skin and I feel this makes me look less oily! It might just be in my head!

20150106-074319.jpg
Too Faced: My favorite mascara EVER!! I tried Younique this summer and love my Too Faced mascara more!

20150106-074645.jpg
Make Up For Ever: My sister gave me 3 of these for Christmas! They are fabulous! Usually by the end of the day I have eye shadow clumped in my creases, but not since I started using these! So far so good! My sister swears by them! She has 2 of the 3 Naked pallets and she like these shadows just as much, if not more than the Naked pallets!

I think I will save lipsticks for another post!

Thanks for reading!!

My Go To Beauty Products

Hey Hey Heyyyyyy!!!
I haven’t talked about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on what I have been using!!

20140508-094422.jpg
This stuff is aaaamazing!! I have super sensitive skin and this stuff does not break me out!! It does wonders!! I have dry skin in the winter and oily skin in the summer and this works all year round! The oil is rich in vitamin c, so it helps make your skin look brighter and is also a fabulous moisturizer!
I use this under eye treatment cream at night. I never really had circle under my eyes until I had Miss Libbey! I feel like this cream really helps with my under eye circle!!

20140508-095336.jpg
First Aid Beauty has some fabulous products! I’m really in to their moisturizer and eye cream right now! The moisturizer is the bomb! Like I mentioned earlier, my skin was soooo dry this winter. It was disgusting, but the moisturizer works wonders!! It soaks in to my skin really quickly! The under eye cream is great for those in their 20’s and 30’s! I use it in the morning after I wash my face. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles and definitely helps my under eyes stay hydrated!

20140508-100140.jpg
Ok, I promise this is the last moisterizer….. But, seriously guys you NEED to use moisterizer!!!! We don’t want to look 55 when we are only 30! This stuff is great if you don’t want to pay a lot! I use this when I’m not really going to wear much makeup because it has SPF in it! You can find it at your nearest CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart!

20140508-102019.jpg
These face wipes are fab!! I have tried sooo many different brands of face wipes and these are my favorite so far!! Some feel rough on my face and burn my eyes, but these don’t! I feel like they kinda smell like tanning lotion though, but other than that I love them!!

20140508-102305.jpg
I clearly have an addiction to eye cream! The Olay Hydrating Eye Cream works really well! I use it when my eyes feel super dry!! You can find it at Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens, but this is similar!
Who doesn’t love a face mask!! I really like this one! It is great for overall cleansing and it really clears my pores!!

Hope you guys find that you like some of these products! I would to hear what works for you or if you know of anything you think I would like !

Thanks for reading!!
Xoxo,
Amanda
