Becca Lilac Geode

Becca Cosmetics shimmering skin perfectors are one of my all time favorite highlighter formula, and when I first saw Lilac Geode, It was no different. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be hitting pan very sIMG_20170909_182637_508oon.

Becca always seems to be a little less colorful than some other brands when it comes to

highlighters, but in the last year they have branched out quite a bit with the addition of their Light Chaser highlighter collection and my personal favorite, Lilac Geode. Its pretty much a perfect match for my aesthetic.

This highlighter has been out for several months, but I decided to write about it since this limited edition highlighter seems to have gotten a new spot on Ulta’s display at my store. Are they winding up to announce that it is permanent like every other highlighter shade that was supposed to be limited edition? Are they

going to keep stocking the shelves until inventory runs out? And most importantly… Do I need to buy a backup?

If you don’t already have this highlighter and love pinky-purple tones with a touch of gold, don’t forget to go swatch this and grab it before its gone (if Becca can be believed about their limited edition products, that is.)

Been a while, beauties

Guys. Its really been awhile. I just thought I’d acknowledge my absence and say hello to all of you beauty lovers out there that might be reading this. Or people that want to keep tabs. Whatever. Not for me to worry about.20180130_211651.jpg

I’ve been going through a lot personally, and decided that it might be a good time for me to get back to posting here. My journey has been a long and difficult one, but I’m happy to be where I am in life right now. I truly can’t wait to see everything that is to come in 2018. Big things.

I am still at Ulta and loving getting to work with makeup and talk to people about my favorite stuff every day. I’ve changed some things up in my personal style and can’t wait to see what inspiration I’ll gain this year. I am grateful to work with and meet such talented and creative people every day.

I hope 2018 is treating all of you well. xo. Don’t forget to be true to yourself.

 

 

 

November Beauty Favorites

I didn’t have much time to write and take photos of my favorites last month, so I’m combining my favorites from October and November. These have been the trusty favorites that have taken me through the fall so far. Fall is always a busy time for me, so its always nice to have things I’m excited to reach for again and again. Don’t get me wrong, I like variety, but I love getting into a comfortable routine in the fall. It’s cold, gets darker quickly, and my schedule is more packed than usual.  Read on if you’d like to see my favorites for the month.

Life Update!

I haven’t been updating for the last month, and I wanted to let all of my readers know what’s been going on!wp-1479432939879.jpg

I’ve just started working with Ulta Beauty as a prestige beauty advisor in the last few weeks, so getting acclimated to my new job has been time consuming. I am really excited and feel very fortunate to be doing what I love. Ulta is so far a great company to work with, and it is giving me greater opportunity to improve my makeup artistry and expand my skills.

I also recently celebrated my 28th birthday on November 13h, and you better bet that I’ll be showing off those goods. There has been no shortage of new releases,  and I’ve got a few little hauls to share; MAC holiday collection, a birthday haul, a really exciting  Voxbx, and more! I’m hoping to have some fresh new content as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your patience! Hopefully my new job will give me more exposure to new releases that I can share with you all.

My Lipstick Tattoo!

Last Thursday I got a tattoo I’ve been wanting for a long time… A mark of my obsession with all things beauty. I chose a lipstick and wanted something a little dream inspired, surreal, sparkly, and even more luxe that a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick tube.

I wanted to write about my experience and give my artist Linzi some major props for her work. She works at Family Tradition Tattoo in Mooresville, North Carolina. It’s a bit of a hike from Raleigh, but every time I go, it’s so worth the trip! Continue reading

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar

IMG_20141215_170657

Too Faced has just released the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar to the general public as of December 15th, but I was able to get my hands on it a few days ago thanks to Sephora’s VIB Rouge program that allows Rouge members to buy special release products early.

I promised myself that I wasn’t going to go for it, but of course, I wasn’t able to resist when I saw the colors! I was worried at first glance that the colors would be too similar, but the second chocolate bar palette definitely brings something new to the table!
