Milani Rose Powder Blushes | Review + Swatches

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Aside from lipstick, my favorite beauty product definitely has to be blush. I have a huge collection of both high end and drugstore blushes — I just can't get enough!

Since I have quite a few of Milani's Baked shimmery blushes, I knew I had to pick up a couple from the brand's newer line of matte Rose Powder blushes to check them out.

A Sweat-Proof Makeup Menu

Monday, August 10, 2015

Yesterday, my friends and I had a little picnic at Meridian Hill park here in DC. Since I knew I was going to be out in the heat for a few hours, I wanted to keep my makeup light but sweat-proof, and that called for cream products!

My Scent of the Summer: Jo Malone London Wood Sage + Sea Salt Cologne

Sunday, August 9, 2015

I'd been dying to try a Jo Malone cologne for awhile, but couldn't figure out what scent to check out. After Lily Pebbles mentioned Wood Sage + Sea Salt cologne as a favorite, I ran to Nordstrom to give it a sniff and swiftly came home with it!

I know, it's been a minute since I last blogged! Work has been especially this summer and I haven't been inspired too much for makeup shopping. That said, I have bought a few things here and there that I'm hoping to review in the next few weeks. 

First up, the  most deliciously scented eyeshadow palette, the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette!

My Signature Beauty Look

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Ah, the signature beauty look. For me, that means matte light brown shadow on the eyes, nude liner on the water line, lots of mascara, a mostly matte base, bold brows, and matte red lips. Classic. Something I can wear for decades to come.

A Warm Eye Look with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

I've got another matte eyeshadow palette in my collection! I am such a huge fan of Kat Von D as a tattoo artist and as a makeup creator, so when I heard she was coming out to an eyeshadow palette "sister" to her Shade + Light contour palette, I had to get it! I scooped up the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette during the recent Sephora 15% off sale.
