I’m pretty particular when it comes to makeup brushes, as I think most are, for me they have to have a certain feel and work a certain way. Once I find a brush that meets those qualities, it earns a permanent spot in my collection! Like.. forever! One of these brushes I have had for almost 13 years!

These are my everyday makeup brushes, the brushes I use without fail no matter what look I’m putting together!

PS. Most of these are pretty affordable!


As promised and a little late but oh wells, my 2015 Beauty Favorites!

If you’ve been about for a while you know that I don’t do monthly favorites and that’s because I don’t try enough things in a month and also because I usually will use something to death when I love it. Kinda like these products!

I made some pretty awesome discoveries/re-discoveries this year!

Soft Holiday Glam


Can you even believe that Christmas is three days away!? I sure can’t! I also have not yet finished my Christmas shopping…

So with still a lot to do and the madness that is already the holidays, this year I want to keep the makeup simple! I decided on this soft holiday glam look with a bold red lip, it’s super quick and easy to achieve which is what I will need come the 24th of December!

Green Smokey Eye


Lately, I have really been enjoying putting makeup looks together. I have a few more scheduled for this month. Perfect for the upcoming holiday parties!

Today I have a green smokey eye for ya! I was thinking like Christmas tree, festive, so I decided on green! :)

I wanted to go for a really dark green, which didn’t happen. BUT , I actually really love this way this turned out. While it’s still somewhat of a smokey eye it can totally be worn during the day.

Cranberry Smokey Eye


I can’t believe Thanksgiving is 3 days away! I mean I’m excited for all the food but wow it came quick!

So in honor of Thanksgiving, I decided to whip up a little cranberry smokey eye because, you just can’t have Thanksgiving without a little cranberry right?! 😉

And, if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, you could definitely do this for a date night or a girls night out!
