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.

I love makeup but I honestly don’t like it when it’s heavy, overdone, or takes over 10 minutes to apply. I’m always checking out these Youtube channels for new application techniques. I never want to look overdone, I love wearing makeup because it completes the look I’m trying to achieve but I don’t want it to look like it’s wearing me :-). Since the weather is changing I wanted to try golden hues. I love a sun kissed complexion that glows and I will be changing my hair color back to my golden highlights, I’ve been trying new makeup.
I’m wearing Mac Studio fix, with Mac concealer. I have on Mary Kay’s Golden Copper, L’Oreal lash extender #675, Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner, Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow #570….hope you like the pictures.
Which hair color do you prefer?
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!
