What’s In My {Lipstick} Bag | Summer 2018

Hey y’all!

I recently re-discovered my love of lipsticks, so I wanted to share with you a few of the favorites that I ALWAYS have with me. Does anyone else have a specific “lipstick” bag that they keep in their purse to hold all of their lipsticks, or is it just me? Although I keep way more lipsticks than this in my bag, I narrowed it down to my 5 favorites to keep this blog post as short & sweet as possible!

Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream Team Liquid Lipstick Bundle

Three of my current favorite lipsticks came in the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream Team Liquid Lipstick Bundle! The three shades that this little set comes with are Moon Child, Dreamy, & Rêver.  This trio is the perfect set of lipsticks, and every color is so wearable! Yes, even the orange 🙂 I was really impressed with these, especially since they were my first ever liquid lipsticks from ColourPop! (crazy, right?). I was expecting them to be a lot more drying and not as long-lasting, but it hardly feels like I’m wearing lipstick when you have these on and they last all day! Like, put it on at 6 am, do a chemistry lab & eat lunch, then come home at 4 pm and IT’S STILL ON. Doesn’t look cakey, doesn’t crack, doesn’t do that weird thing where it wears off everywhere but the outline of your lips and it looks like you’re wearing a weird lipliner (does anyone else relate?). Dreamy is a matte rose-ish nude color and looks so pretty! I think I’ve worn this one almost every day this week. Moon Child is more of a light pink-nude gloss, but its so pigmented and has a really pretty gold shimmer to it. Rêver is definitely a pop of color! Ths one is a super matte orange-red, but its so pretty and is one of my favorite bright lipsticks!

Bite Beauty Matte Crēme Lip Crayon in Glacé

Bite Beauty Matte Crēme Lip Crayon in Glacé is a gorgeous dusty-mauve, and is long-wearing, water-resistant, and super hydrating! I love Bite products because they’re all natural and contain ingredients such as agave, orange peel wax, and brown sugar.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Audition

The last lipstick that I always like to keep with me is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Audition. This lipstick is one of my favorite lipsticks ever because it’s such a gorgeous neutral rose color and is so creamy. It hardly feels like I’m wearing lipstick! This lipstick is so pigmented and stays on all day, so I hardly have to reapply. It works well with natural makeup, no makeup, or a full face of glam.

And that’s a wrap! I didn’t include everything that I keep in my lipstick bag, because that would be way too long of a blog post. These are just a few of the ones I wear the most often, and I hope you love them as much as I do. 

Much Love,

My Top 10 Beauty Products

Hey yall! I’m going to be sharing with you my favorite beauty products that I use every single day (almost). I usually try to go for a more natural overall look, but I do have days when I really feel like rocking some winged liner. Let’s get started!

FACE. 

My favorite foundation and primer are the Too Faced  Born This Way Foundation in the shade Porcelain (applied with the Real Techniques expert face brush), and the Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, also by Too Faced. These are both so hydrating and it hardly feels like you’re wearing foundation. I set my foundation with a fluffy brush and the NYX Pressed HD Finishing Powder in Translucent. For Bronzer, I use the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, which I have in their Cheekathon Blush Palette. My favorite blush is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in the shade Paaarty. (I love it). These products have such a good color and are nicely pigmented, and blend so nicely.

EYES.  

I’ve started using the Colourpop Take Me Home eyeshadow palette, which I absolutely love because it’s so versatile. The palette only has six shades, but those eyeshadows are all you need for either a natural look or a more smokey, sparkly look. I use the light peachy shade on my lid, then use the slightly darker warm color for my crease. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll thinly line my eyes with Revlon’s Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner in the shade Blackout, but I usually just go without eyeliner. I curl my eyelashes and apply a few coats of Sephora’s Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara in the color black. For brows, I’ll use the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown to shape my eyebrows and define them a bit. 

And that’s it! Somedays I wear makeup, other days (like today), I’ll just go without it. It totally doesn’t matter whether you wear super glam makeup every day, super natural makeup every day, go without every day, or mix it up. (like me!). I hope yall enjoyed this and don’t forget to check out my Winter Skincare Favorites!
