Beauty Basics…From a Drug Store Beauty…

Hi beauties! I wanted to share some of my beauty basics. I haven’t shared my makeup bag must have’s in a minute. I’m totally a “drugstore beauty” because with the exception of my MAC studio fix foundation and Ambering Rose cheek blush, I buy everything else from the local drugstore or Walmart. I’ve been shopping around for new makeup to compliment my natural hair. It was red but unfortunately it’s already washed out to a rich brown color. I’ll put a rinse in it soon but for now I’ll keep it brown , which is my natural hair color. If you’ve read my previous posts, you see that I’m trying to work on popping eye colors and nude or earth-tone colored lip colors. I feel like everything has to look natural for some reason 😉 
I’ve shared a few of my current faves with you. I hope you all find it helpful if your shopping around for new makeup to add to your collection. 
Foundation: MAC Studio Fix *I use base color around the eyes—>/ Base: Cover Girl
Cheek: MAC Amboring Rose Blush
Lipstick: Loreal #815  Ginger Spice
Lipgloss: Loreal Color Riche #805 Soft Nude
Eyeshadow: Revlon Colorstay #570 Luscious
Eyeshadow: Wet N Wild  Coloricon Collection #737″ Blue Had Me At Hello” & #738 Comfort Zone”

Plaid Flannel Shirt & Burgundy Pants…

Hi Beauties! Hope the work day ended well for you all. I went out this weekend and decided to pick up some new lipstick shades. I wanted to try lining my lips with a lip pencil but the purple lip liner had glitter in it and naturally my lips are big enough and sure don’t need any added attention..LOL!! I’ll try it next post, just to see how it comes out. I found these three colors by Wet n Wild for $4 each Fuchsianista, Stoplight Red, and Ferguson Crest. I love the shades and rocked the Fuchsianista shade in this post. What do you think of the color?   

Now about the outfit, I found this flannel shirt at Old Navy, the colors are bright, and pretty. It looks blue in the picture but it’s actually mint green 😉 It was on sale for $14, the pants I’ve had for some time now but I thought it would look great to dress up flannel since I always see it dressed down. I’m gonna have to stop by Old Navy again because they have so many comfy shirts on sale but I didn’t want to go over board. Until next time guys, hope you like the pictures!

Top 6 Fave Lipstick Shades…

Hi beauties *kiss *kiss! I wanted to share my personal top six fave lipstick shades. These are lipsticks that I currently use. I’m a huge fan of L’Oreal, MAC, and Mary Kay. I see all these new colorful lipstick shades like, purple, green, and blue out on the market lately but I won’t be trying any unusual colors 😉

I have full lips and for me that says a lot about the shades that I pick for my lip color. I do not like bright, overly colorful and unusual colors because it just will not look right on me. Besides, I’m OK with not trying every new trend.
For me the lipstick has to have some degree of shine, not too oily, and I hate lipstick that cakes up and smudges for every little thing you do. I look for long lasting, practical colors, that work well with my complexion.
I find that L’Oreal has a great combination of shades, cost, and accessibility because I can grab one at the local drug store or Walmart. For a mother always on the go accessibility is a big factor for me. I love MAC but rarely have time to head to the local mall for a new lipstick and Mary Kay has to be ordered *ugh! 

Check them out…Hope you like!

XOXO
