Fireworks + May Favorites

Happy Memorial Day!!!

I hope you all have been well! I have been finishing up school and trying to get stuff ready for senior year.

My brother and I got some fireworks and we set them off and here are some of the shots

The next thing I've been very excited about is my May favorites, just a couple products that Ive been using throughout this month that have really been awesome!

First thing is PUR's Bare It All Foundation that is full coverage but also light on the skin and lasts all day!

The next thing that I love is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea! It is such a light spray that can be used for moisturizer or a setting spray!

The Tarte Maracuja Oil is such a wonderful base for foundation that gives it a dewy look to your makeup, I use it for a lighter look compared to a full glam look! 

The final thing I adore is the Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara that gives a long but not clumpy eyelash look! I pair it with the Better Than Sex for a glam look!

Again, I hope you all are well and I will see you soon!

St. Paul Trip!

Hey everyone!! 

How are you? I'm doing well! I've been experimenting with my new makeup a lot lately and it has been so fun! My favorite products I've been using NARS Concealer, Too Faced "Natural Love" Palette, and Winky Lux's collaboration with Marzia Bisognin "Natura" Palette! 

Tarte & Too Faced have been my top two brands lately, I just love the products all together, they have such a richness and all of the colors are so pigmented!

This is a mix of the Natura palette using SOLE (golden), FUOCO (burnt orange) & FOGLIA (green) and a base of "Bunny Nose" from the Natural Love Palette

Even though the flowers are just starting to bloom I still think they are so beautiful, especially the tulips! That red tulip caught my eye from the other side of the park today and I had to get a good shot of it,, absolutely beautiful!

the last of these are just some really neat photos from downtown, its such a creative place to be and I hope I get to go back soon to take some more really cool pictures!
