My love of makeup started at a very young age. At age 10, I would spend all my babysitting money at Ulta on OPI nail polish. I received my first high-end eyeshadow palette in seventh grade and wore eye shadow to school every day. (Let’s not relive those pictures) So, it really wasn’t a surprise that I grew into the makeup hording girl I am today.
When it comes to makeup, it’s always assumed that the more expensive products are always better. But as a frugal spender, I have found some of my favorite products at the drugstore for under $10.
12 weeks ago, I started taking classes with Emily Miller Makeup to become a certified makeup artist. I learned about skin tones, eye shape, airbrush, and the trick to putting on fake lashes. Only once did I glue someone’s eye shut, pretty big accomplishment I think.
Never did I think that this class would teach me about myself. I feel confident and capable of creating something great. I’ve always had a secret obsession with makeup, and now I feel better about sharing it.
So, here are my four beautiful models (thank you if you’re reading this). Each was airbrushed, and is wearing a pair of the Kiss 03 lashes for an extra pop.
The cult favorite of YouTube, and Sephora bestseller are the Becca highlighters. I’ve bit the expensive bullet twice and purchased the highlight in the shades Moonstone and Champaign Pop. I do not regret purchasing as they are beautiful and add the perfect glow to the skin.
I could say just run out and buy them yourself, but that wouldn’t fit the purpose of this blog post would it?
I defiantly have a makeup attention. I’m always trying out new products and I’ve tried multiple makeup subscription services. Today I’m going to share my Sephora Play box with y’all!
I’m a sucker for makeup subscription boxes. I was subscribed to Ipsy for almost two years before switching over to the Sephora Play box. If you don’t know, the Play box is $10 a month and includes 5 beauty products and a perfume sample each month. Everything inside can be found at Sephora and it even comes with a card for an additional 50 points to your rewards account. So basically it’s free!
As we get closer to Spring, I’d thought I’d share what my internet searches have been recently! Off the Shoulder Tops– I love the feminine vibe it gives while being elegant yet fun. Great for date nights or days when you want to look a little more flirty. Glossy Lips– The matte liquid lipstick trend… Continue reading My Current Obsessions!
