What's In My Makeup Bag

I haven't posted anything in a while now because of my father's death... But I decided to do a what's in my makeup bag post. These are always fun, right? I have a big haul for this month but I just haven't really had the time to get all the things photographed and ready to go so I might just do it in pieces if that's alright.

Well moving onto my makeup bag, it is a Clinique makeup bag that I got in a garage sale a while back, it was brand new and it's pretty big so I thought why not and I think it was only 50 cents lol :) I love me some deals! And sorry it's a bit dirty from being in my purse :)
So now these are the contents, it's quite a bit but there is actually still room in the bag after all this! As you can tell there is a heck of a lot of lip products in there and that is the main thing in my purse at all times. You can never have enough lip products! :)
These are the lip care things I have in my makeup bag. I used to carry around the Rosebud Salve from Sephora but it melted once so I took it out haha But I have two Chapstick Moisturizers in regular and the new green apple which is awesome! I got the Chapsticks at Walmart. I also have a Hot Topic lip balm in Cool Peppermint and a Chap-Ice Lip Care that I got at the Dollar Tree. 
These are all my lipsticks that I carry with me. It's a lot I know but at some point it was more than this! I will list them all down below so that it's easier to follow. A lot of pinks by the way if you hadn't noticed and nudes too. Can never go wrong with those two colors.

These are extras that I found floating around my purse after I had finished taking the other pictures but all of this will also be listed down below. As you can see more lip products! They are never ending in my purse haha :)
Oh look! MORE lip products hahaha these are my lipglosses. I love the pink lipglosses as you can see. :)

And last but not least are all the other necessities. I forgot my blotting sheets in the picture but they are usually in my makeup bag as well.

Rest In Peace Daddy....

Well, how to start all of this.... My father was killed Saturday night and I probably will not be making posts for a while. I will try to as soon as possible. But this just happened too suddenly I'm still in shock. I didn't want you to think I was slacking off on my posts....

FOTD: Blueberry Iced Brownie

So today I went with a neutral look because I had some important errands to run, so no fun colors today :/ I just added a bit of blue on my lower lash line so it wouldn't be so boring. But I hope you guys enjoy it!

I got this Maybelline lipstick at the Dollar Tree along with some other colors. They are pretty good lipsticks very pretty colors and moisturizing. 

1. So first I took the brownish color out of the Wet n Wild Vanity palette and used it as my transition color.
2. I took the dark matte brown color from the Natural Shany eyeshadow palette and applied it to my outer V and crease just to darken things up a bit.
3. I then took the goldish color and added it to my lid.
4. I blended it out with the matte skin tone highlight from the Shany palette.
5. Then I took the blue from the 120 palette 2nd edition.
6. I finished it off with mascara and eyeliner both on top and on my waterline.
7. I applied Maybelline's lipstick in Nude Shell.

I hope you guys enjoyed this look although it's a bit blah and kind of looks like a look I did a while ago. Have an amazing weekend!

FOTD: Caught Up in a Cotton Candy Whirlwind :)

     So today I did this look with really no inspiration, I've just been wanting to work with these colors for a while. I've done a look kind of like this one before. Anyways I just used my Manly 120 palette 1st edition which is a pretty accessible
palette! Hope you enjoy!                                            

For my lipstick I used the L.A. Colors lip gloss/ lipstick duo in Natural. It just comes with a nude lipstick and a clear gloss. I think it's a really pretty nude and it is such a nice formula not dry or anything really moisturizing. Amazing little duo for only $1! I got some of mine at Deals and some at Dollar Tree.

I really liked how it turned out :)

I kind of don't like how these lashes turned out... Should've used different ones.

Lashes are Miss Adoro #62

Ok so now for the steps of how I did it:
1. I applied this teal-ish color on my lid.
2. I went in with the pink and blended it up towards my brow and in with the teal.
3. I took this purple so subtly darken the crease and help blend out the pink and teal.
4. I took a matte skin tone highlight on my brow to blend out harsh lines then I went in with a shimmery skin tone highlight right below my brow to add a little definition.
5. I then lined my inner lower lash line with the teal and the outer lower lash line with the pink and blended those two together.
6. I lined my waterline with a white eyeliner and lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner, added mascara and then my lashes, and finally went back with the liquid liner to cover up the glue.
7. Added my lipstick
8. Fin :)

Hope you enjoyed this look and I inspired you! :)

Comfort Zone & Blue Had Me at Hello

So today I did this look inspired by a look that Vanessa from did. I thought it was so beautiful but obviously hers turned out way better lol I accidentally made it too dark. But it still turned out decent right?

For my lipstick I used Rimmel's Crush. She used MAC's Reel Sexy. I thought this color looked pretty good with it so I went along.

Below I have the palettes labeled. She has them labeled like this as well if I remember correctly.
I'm glad I used my Wet n Wild palettes today and not just one but four at the same time. By the way if you guys don't already have these palettes I definitely recommend them although the 6 pan palettes have been discontinued :( The 8 pan palettes are great so get those if you can. You won't regret it! Wet n Wild makes amazing products. 

I hope you guys liked it because it was thanks to her for the inspiration! I personally loved my look although hers was amazing!

Orange You Glad t's Wednesday?

 So today I decided to do a fun bright eye. I went with a yellow, orange and a green. I used my Manly 120 palette and my Wales 18 palette. I just felt like today was kind of a blah day since it's been in the three digits almost all week and eh this weather is driving me crazy. I do like that I can wear awesome bright eye looks during this season, buuuutt, I'm ready for fall! My birthday is in the fall and I'm turning 21 so yay me!!! :)

 Eye closed: I tried to blend as much as I could so that I wouldn't have a cut crease effect because that was no what I was looking for.

I put some green on my lower lash line just to add something extra.
I forgot to add that I used the second green down on my lower lashline.

I hope you guys enjoyed this look and you try it out!

Products used:
Wales 18 piece eyeshadow palette #04
Manly 120 palette 1st edition
Lipstick e.l.f. Nostalgic
Eyeliner Jordana Incolor in black
L'Oreal Bare Naturale mascara in black
Blush e.l.f Fuchsia Fusion

Hope you guys had an awesome day and have an awesome day tomorrow!
