Summer Glam: Lashes & Lips

Hey, Everyone!

For me, SUMMER makeup is EASY makeup!
I don't know about you, but I don't always have the patience to paint a full face just to have it melt off hours later! (I try though, I still try!)

I live in Arizona, and it's a million degrees right now.  I wanted to create a look that was comfortable, easy, fast, and still a bit glam ♥

I covered the basics: light skin coverage, lashes & lips. DONE ☺

I opted for an intense pink lip for this look, and really LOVE this product!
It's a lip stain from J. Cat Beauty and it's very serious pigmentation, with a lot of serious hydration!

I hope you like the look!

Maybelline: The Blushed Nudes

Hey, Everyone!


I know that I've been away for a bit, so I am excited to be back with a blog post today!  I've missed you so much! I've tried to pop in on some of you to say hello when I've had a moment, but life just got busy, and that ain't always a bad thing ;-)
I hope you are all doing well, and let's talk about makeup! ♥

First of all, you all know that I am a sucker for awesome palettes... Second of all, you all know that I love awesome DRUGSTORE palettes! This one is a beauty ♥

I know many of you have seen Maybelline's new The Blushed Nudes Palette, but I finally got a chance to play with it, and I absolutely love these rosy tones!

The pigmentation is quite decent, textures are lovely, and blendability is very impressive.
For $10, this is well worth it.

I put together a simple look that can be worn day to evening, work or play.

I hope you like it!
