FIRST POST ✨
Hello everyone! This is my first post so I thought I would introduce myself and give some background on my skincare/beauty journey! My name is Haley and I am 20 years old. I never really struggled with/or cared about my skin until I got into college and I was completely breaking out, and I figured I should stop putting my foundation on NOT using my fingers 😂. That being said, I have come a LONG way! This photo I tagged some basics that are staples in my makeup routine, both very good for the price and are amazing quality that I have yet to replace! e.l.f. - Lip Plumping Gloss

Simple bronzey-peachy makeup 🍑✨
Today I bring you an almost full face of drugstore makeup! I’ve found some drugstore gems that I’ve been obsessed with as of late and I unconsciously used a lot today for this simple peachy lewk! I’m gonna be honest and say I’m a bit bummed about summer coming to an end, so I might have gone a bit crazy with the bronzer today but I really liked how this turned out so here, a breakdown of the products I used which are all mainly drugstore and/or less pricey options ☺️ ⭐️ DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer the only luxury product I used today. This is my favorite concealer ever so I basically use it every time I do my makeup. I’ve reviewed it before, so I’ll just tell you it’s amazing. 10/10. ⭐️ e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I know this has been around for a while but I picked it up in a set not too long ago and it’s just as amazing as everyone says it is. It literally makes my pores disappear! ⭐️ essence - Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder Essence is one of my favorite drugstore brands, they offer great products at true drugstore prices. The packaging may not be the nicest but if the product is good then that’s fine by me. This bronzer works great on my skin tone, smells like coconuts and blends beautifully onto skin. ⭐️ essence - Pure Nude Highlighter another Essence favorite! This is the creamiest powder highlighter I’ve ever used. It looks almost wet on the skin, never powdery. Just one of my favorite highlighters overall, not just drugstore. ⭐️ essence - Satin Touch Blush I think Essence just does powders really well, another great powder product from them! They’re blushes are inexpensive, blend so well and last a while on the skin. ⭐️ COLOURPOP - Baby Got Peach not drugstore per se, but drugstore priced! Colourpop’s monochrome palettes are my favorite. The peach one is a must if you have a similar skin tone to mine, I think these are just lovely. ⭐️ e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel amazing brow gel, it fills in my brows, tames them and holds. ⭐️ e.l.f. - Lip Plumping Gloss I’m not a big fan of plumping glosses because of the burning sensation I get from most of them, but this one is bearable and the color is so cute! It’s a very comfortable gloss in my opinion. ⭐️ ROYAL & LANGNICKEL - MŌDA Metallics Triad Eye I used this brush today to give some shape to my eyes and it’s an amazing brush! Super soft and the triangular shape is great if you’re not that good doing eye makeup (like me!). I just really don’t like the handle, it’s so ugly to me lol but the brush is 💯 ⭐️ I used this Wet n Wild blending brush to blend the shadows I used today, and Wet n Wild brushes are some of my favorite drugstore brushes. Very affordable and easily accessible! #CheriePartner

Long lasting challenge!
The tarte sea color splash lipstick in island life is a long wearing pigment, rich lipstick that’s offered in an array of creamy shades! Color Splash Lipstick offers intense pigment with buttery-smooth conditioners for moisture-rich, long-lasting, matte color that won’t bleed. It’s formulated with antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts to help make lips look firmer, fuller, and smoother. This lipstick is offered in 24 shades so you can switch up your lip color as often as you change your mood! I absolutely love using this lipstick, it is the perfect nude shade and gives you a very comfortable wear! It is so creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips! This product wears fantastic throughout the day! I had this lipstick on for over 12 hours and I eat with it on, I worked most of the day, and I worked out, and through all of that it only lost a little bit of tint! But that is amazing, I definitely expected it to lose some tint considering I eat with it on, which is amazing! My skin is very dry and this didn’t make my lips any more dry, and my skin tone is light medium! tarte - Sea Color Splash Lipstick

CURRENT FAVOURITE LIP-GLOSSES
Hey everyone! Today I am going to be sharing with you my favourite lip-glosses✨ Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Candy Queen You may know that I am not someone who can handle intense plumping lip glosses – for example I can struggle with the Too Faced Lip Injection. The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker range does tingle the lips and plump ever so slightly, but it’s nothing crazy and it doesn’t hurt. I love this pale pink shade ‘Candy Queen’ to wear over lip sticks or alone on minimal makeup days. These are so affordable too so it’s an amazing option to try. I also have the shade ‘Plums Up’ which is a beautiful colour too. Too Faced Rich & Dazzling High Shine Sparkling Lip Gloss in ‘Raisin The Roof’ I am absolutely obsessed with this & it couldn’t not be mentioned in my favourite lip-glosses post. It is so beautiful as it has lots of glitters throughout it that actually show up really well on the lips. This is the most ‘glittery’ gloss I have tried and it is such a nice option if you do want that glitzy look. It isn’t sticky compared to other formulas. I love the shade ‘Raisin The Roof’ as it is a bit of a deeper berry tone which has more pigment than some other glosses. It looks nice on the top of lipstick but my favourite way to wear this is on its own. I love the applicator on this gloss – it is flat & picks up a lot of product so you don’t have to keep dipping into the tube. Myleene Klass Lip Glaze in Mirror Mirror I won a set of these lip glazes in a giveaway a bit ago and this is the only shade I ever wore, and I have since got rid of the other shades. I love this one as it a nude shade that is almost clear on the lips with a little bit of shimmer. It looks really wet and glossy on the lips though, so if that’s the look I am wanting I reach for this! I love this on top of pretty much any lipstick too. The only down side is that the doe foot applicator is quite small so you do have to keep dipping back into the tube as it doesn’t collect a lot of product each time. Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lipgloss in Rebel Now, I wouldn’t call this a ‘plumping’ gloss as I don’t notice a difference in my lips however I do love this gloss for other reasons! This gloss is stunning on its own or with a lip liner – it is thick (yet not sticky) & pigmented and stays on the lips better than other glosses, so it’s definitely one of my favourite lip-glosses. It has no shimmer or glitter at all (unlike all others on the list) which makes it look super smooth and glossy. I wouldn’t recommend this if you do want that plumped affect but other than that I adore it. Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lipgloss in Dreamer Another shade from Bare Minerals but I just had to mention both as they are both some of my favourite lip-glosses! This one is more of a golden peachy nude shade that every collection needs! Unlike ‘Rebel’ this one has shimmer throughout it and I love pairing this with a nude lip colour. Just like ‘Rebel’ it isn’t really plumping in my opinion. Again, it is thick, pigmented and not too sticky. I feel that this shade would work for so many people. That’s it for my 5 favourite lip-glosses! What do you think? Are you a gloss kind of person or do you prefer matte?
The Best and Mehs of Too Faced
I am unashamed to love kitschy packaging. So over the years, Too Faced definitely drew me in. Most of their products have been wins for me, but I did find one dud + a trend. Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Not every shadow in this palette is buttery or easy to blend (i.e. Cherry Cordial and Black Forest orest Truffle). But the nude colors are wonderful. Salted Caramel is still one of my favorite one-shadow colors of all time, and I use Semi-Sweet to fill my brows every day. Too Faced - Melted Matte-Tallic Liquid Lipstick (Shade: Sell Out) It has a very thin texture, and dries down super fast. it lasted through my 9-5 work day, surviving both lunch and coffee. It only started to break down at the end of the day, making it look like blotted lipstick. But for its opacity, it's definitely a fav. Too Faced - La Creme Mystical Lipstick (Shade: Pink Chocolate) A very balmy lipstick that goes on evenly and almost glossy. Smells like delicious lemonade, and the sturdy packaging makes it feel royal. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara I have tried a lot of mascaras, and this one stands out for making lashes look feathery. The wand makes it easy to separate lashes evenly, and the thick formula makes them look thick from the root. Out of all these products, I only had one 'meh.’ Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Now discontinued, but I think it follows a trend in Too Faced. Just like the Chocolate bar, the dark matte shades with sparkles are hard to blend and build up. The sparkles also seem to blend away... The brown shades like Peanut Butter perform well, but if you're going to get a product with Too Faced's strengths, might as well get an all nude palette.

Revlon AND ColourPop Lipsticks!
I realized that I have a lot of lipsticks from Revlon and ColourPop. I really like both brands. So I chose 5 out of the huge collection I have. I think they are just so beautiful. 💘Which one is your favorite? REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick325 - Toast of New York It has a moisturizing texture, a beautiful shade, and it's smooth and easy to apply. It's suitable for daily use for a radiant look and for when you want to wear only lipstick. REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick 225 - Rosewine Shade 225 is a cinnamon red bean shade with a pink tone. This shade is not really stunning but it's still much better than the MAC See Sheer lipstick. ColourPop Just Peachy Lip Bundle I wanted to buy all three shades after doing arm swatches but not so much after doing lip swatches. They're hard to evenly apply and bleed into lip lines easily. They're also super hard to remove. ColourPop Arriba Ultra Matte Lipstick This matte textured lipstick doesn't dry out my lips and is easy to apply. I especially love this one! ColourPop Ziggie Lippie Stix and Lovelife Lippie Stix ColourPop Lippie Stix is quite smooth on the lips when first applied but it dries up the lips after a while. However, both shades are really pretty.

A lipstick you may not have heard of
Bodyography wasn’t a brand I was very familiar with, until last year when then released their fabric texture lipsticks and I won a full set of them in a giveaway. I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional lipsticks because they look too harsh on me, but these are buildable and can be applied for a blotted effect. Bodyography describes them as “demi-matte” lipsticks with a “next-to-nothing naked feel,” which I would say is accurate. They are cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan, and contain coconut and jojoba oils to moisturize. This is the shade “velvet,” and as you can see it’s a deep burgundy that always makes me think of blackberry juice. This is not a color I would normally wear, but since I can apply it and blot it do it looks more subtle, I really like it. It doesn’t last more than a few hours though, but I really don’t mind applying. I wish it were a little more moisturizing, but honestly my lips are always dry and I haven’t found any one product yet that has offered me a solution for it. These lipsticks are $26 each, which is a little pricey in my opinion. However, these will last me forever since I don’t wear them every day, and when I do I only apply a little bit. I recommend checking out Bodyography if you haven’t heard of them!

“FEEL-GOOD” MAKEUP LOOK
Although I’m staying at home all day and seeing no-one besides my boyfriend, I find that putting on some makeup helps me feel more put together and productive! Here is my “feel-good”/“cheer-me-up” routine for quarantine: 1) BRONZER NUDESTIX - Nudies All Over Face Color Glow in Terracotta Tan This creamy bronzer is the perfect neutral shade that isn’t too warm or too cool-toned. It adds the perfect amount of color to my face and definitely minimizes any dullness in my skin. It’s pigmented but easily blendable for a flawless natural effect. 2) BLUSH NUDESTIX - Magnetic Plush Paint - Lip, Cheek & Eye Color in St. Tropez Blush always makes my skin look brighter and more radiant. It also just makes me look healthier! This multi-use product can also be used on the eyes and lips. It has a thin-consistency but blends out seamlessly without disrupting any base products underneath. 3) BROWS benefit - Double the Precision Brow Pencil Duo in 4 Brows define the face so adding a bit of color and thickness definitely helps to frame the face! It makes a huge difference- and this brow pencil is super skinny so you can simply fill in any “bald” spots and add a few strokes where you want more thickness and definition. 4) EYESHADOW ARMANI beauty - Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow in 23 I don’t want anything crazy but just a hint of color makes the eyes pop! I love this eye tint because it has a thin-consistency (just like the Nudestix Plush Paints) and applies sheer-but-buildable. I only apply this along my lashline and blend upwards for a soft shadowy look. 5) MASCARA L'ORÉAL - Unlimited Length and Lift Waterproof Mascara Mascara is SO important to me because it frames my eyes and makes my eyes look bigger and more awake! I love this mascara for lash definition but it doesn’t add too much volume. 6) LIP STAIN Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like For just a bit of added color to the lips, I love this lipstick for a stained effect. It’s a soft-matte lipstick that’s incredibly creamy but sheer and the shade is a perfect “MLBB” shade! 7) LIP GLOSS Too Faced - Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper The best “cheer-me-up” product is lip gloss. It just adds shine and makes my lips look and feel more pouty! This gloss is not sticky at all and has a tingling effect that plumps up your lips slightly.
