My most expensive vice (besides lip products) are base products. I'm obsessed with getting the most flawless face, and the end result is me eyeing foundations and trying to figure out the foundation that will make me look flawless, yet natural. So far, the closest foundation that has gotten me to where I want is the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (Review). Of course, because there are always new products out on the market, I have been eyeing a few high end liquid foundations. Hunting for a good drugstore foundation that is yellow toned is hard, making me usually gravitate towards the more pricey foundation. As a result, today I am sharing with you the foundations that I am probably going to buy next and feel free to share with me a good liquid medium to full coverage foundation for oily skin.

Hello friends! Today is my first day of my last year in college (FINALLY!) and as such, I decided it was only appropriate to share with you the products that will be essential to me looking human and not a zombie. As this is my last year, the classes will be harder than before and plus I will be writing my senior thesis this year (and then there is something called grad school applications) so I probably won't be caking my face too much with makeup. The products I am going to talk you through today are products that I would wear on a day where I need to quickly get ready and look somewhat presentable to the public.

Pics Taken at the Toronto Zoo!
Hello friends! Today I am sharing with you some pictures of my adventures when I was in Canada. The majority of these pictures were taken by my phone so the quality isn't always the best...but I hope you guys enjoyed it regardless. I didn't end up getting to go sight seeing as much as I would like, but nevertheless it was a blast :) Used the subway for the first time by myself #adultstatus amongst the many food adventures (I mean, can't you tell with how many food pictures on my Instagram? I feel like it's more food then makeup these days lol).

Hello friends! I am now back from Toronto, so I finally am getting around to posting the blog posts I have been been diligently writing while I was on the plane (I totally was blogging on my phone at around midnight on my flight there). So I was tagged awhile back by the lovely Iqra over at The Blushing Giraffe to do the Starting Over Tag. The essential point of this tag is to discuss what products you would purchase again if you lost all your makeup! So in this post you will see a lot of old favorites as well as some newer products that have made the cut!

Hello friends! Today I am sharing with you a relatively quick and easy Get Ready With Me Video, featuring a rather glowly face. The main inspiration out of this look today was the fact that I actually ran to Walmart to grab the Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki (the highlighter everyone loves) because I wasn't willing to fork out the $38 for Jaclyn Hill's Becca Collab Champagne Pop. I'm also using a lot of drugstore products here (minus the brows and the face primer...and someone help me find a good drugstore face primer please). Unlike the majority of my makeup looks, this one offers light to medium coverage and isn't long wearing. I hope you guys enjoy the video!

As the title implies, YES I AM GOING BACK TO MY MOTHERLAND (yes I do consider Canada my motherland). Words cannot describe how pumped I am to have Tim Hortons multiple times a day when I am visiting along with (hopefully) being able to meet up with my lovely friend Vanessa over at Citron and Guavaberry. A lot of these products are products I'm trying to finish up and are products that are trustworthy. On my last trip to Canada, I made the mistake of bringing out products that haven't been truely tested before...and as a result I was an oily mess the majority of the time I was there. However, we learn from our mistakes and move on! I won't be gone for more than a week, but nevertheless I wanted to share with you the products I will be bringing with me onto my trip across the border! If you are interested in seeing what makeup brushes I'm bringing, the brushes in last years Travel Makeup Bag to Canada is basically the same as the ones I'm bringing.

Hello friends! Today I am sharing with you my thoughts on these four It Cosmetics for Ulta Brushes from the Airbrush Essentials Collection. These are currently the majority of my high end brush collection (minus the Mac 217 and two Anastasia brow brushes). I have been buying them slowly, usually waiting on a 20% coupon from Ulta on prestige brands before I bought them. I have not regretted any of the brush purchases I have made, these four are soft and don't shed when you wash them. Also, another benefit of these brushes is that they are all synthetic!So for those of you who were wondering how these brushes were, hope you find my thoughts here useful!
