Another Marshall’s Haul
Before the snow hit in the north east, I had to hit up Marshall’s so I had some new products to play with. This shopping trip I found makeup products from Becca and Milk to try out. As with any trip to Marshall’s it’s hit or miss with products and shade ranges, so I know this foundation is a bit too light, but the undertone was right. There were also a few other things I wanted, but their packaging was open and the products were clearly touched. So let’s dive in to what I used for this look (3rd pic, I don’t use any filters/beauty mode). Milk MAKEUP - Blur Stick I like the powdery finish it leaves on my skin. I’ll have to use it a few more times before I decide how much I like it. BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation I’m generally not a fan of full coverage foundation. But this does not feel heavy or caking on my skin (yes, it’s a shade too light). I applied it pretty lightly, but you can easily build this up to you preferred coverage level. BECCA - Limited Edition Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder I was pleasantly surprised by this powder. I usually only use powder lightly under my eyes o set my concealer, but this was so light that I used it all over my face. It did not settle into my fine lines or make me look dry (aging skin). I applied with a velour puff and used a fluffy brush to remove the excess. Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek I’m a big fan of cream products and the fact that this does double duty, lips and cheeks, makes it a winner in my book. Milk MAKEUP - Kush Waterproof Mascara I’ve been dying to try this mascara (if you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know I’m on an unending hunt for the perfect mascara). But I couldn’t justify the price tag if it was just going to end up in the “meh” pile of mascaras I already have. It gave a great first impression, but I’ll have to use it a few more times before I decide to invest in a full sized tube. For under $40, I got to try some high end products that are usually out of my budget. I love Marshall’s for exactly this reason! What is your favorite Marshall’s find?

Flawless Skin #NoFilter
Step 1: The Alpyn Beauty Survival Serum is not just a serum, it doubles as a primer with a sick holographic glow. I use this alone when I don’t wear makeup, as one of the benefits is to brighten the skin. When I wear this under makeup, that’s when the game changes 😩 it gives my skin an unbelievable dewyness! I refuse to use any other primer and it’s replaced my previous HG Too Faced Hangover primer. At $68, isn’t the most cost effective serum/primer but I do think it’s worth the splurge. Step 2: The Becca Cosmetics 24 Hr Foundation gives me the most natural looking face ever. When the brand marketed this as Ultimate Coverage, they meant it! This product covers up my dark marks & held up beautifully in the heat when I went to Mexico! The Pur Selfie Foundation is wonderful, but I found it overwhelming that there were 100 shades available to choose from. Additionally, it’s not available in stores which makes the shade match process even more challenging. Nonetheless, this has a gorgeous matte finish and also covers up my dark marks so I don’t need a correcting concealer! Step 3: Becca Cosmetics Aqua Luminous Concealer is by far my favorite. It gives a ridiculous glow to my under eye area & honestly just brings my whole look together. At $32, this concealer is worth the price but I would prefer to buy it if it were on sale since there are several other concealers in the market that cost less. * Each one of these products has the smoothest, lightest consistencies! I hate FEELING like I have products on my face, and these give me an incredible skin like finish. The foundations have fabulous shade ranges that match the lightest to darkest of complexions, and I’m thankful these brands did not ignore POC!

Halloween Glam Look 2020
Halloween looked a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean costumes and makeup went out the window! This year I decided to try a glam look—with a little twist. Plus, it gave me an excuse to try some brand new products in my collection that I can’t wait to tell you about. Let’s start with the foundation of my look, brought to you by BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation in the shade Alabaster. I got incredibly lucky on my last trip to Marshall’s and scored this AMAZINGLY full-coverage foundation for $12. (Yes, you read that right. Becca foundation for $12.) This is about one shade lighter than I would typically wear, which made it the perfect base for a death-inspired glam look. This product is the most full-coverage foundation I’ve ever used, and it didn’t budge all night. No creasing, no breaking apart (even under a mask), and no fading. The finish is matte, but because of the Alabaster shade it still gave a slight glow. I can’t say enough good things about this foundation. I can’t wait to wear it again to test with a less dramatic look. When you’re going full-coverage glam, priming for and setting your foundation is absolutely critical. Without these products, I think my look would have been a goner within a few hours: Too Faced - Hangover Primer I laid this primer down first because it really does wonders for my skin. It’s not quite as tacky as I needed it to be, but I knew it was my first line of defense with the heavy makeup I was applying—so I used it as the first of two primers. The second? URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Face Primer for its tacky finish. All Nighter is an incredible line, and the primer is no exception. Layered on top of the Hangover primer, it created the perfect canvas for my intense Halloween look. After laying down my primer and foundation, I used my ABSOLUTE - HD FLAWLESS LOOSE SETTING POWDER in Brightening Banana for my under eyes and high points, followed by URBAN DECAY - The Ultimate Brush Off Translucent Loose Setting Powder to set the rest of my face. (I don’t typically set my full face with powder, but it was a MUST with this look!) Finally, after I laid down my shadows I set my entire face with the ultimate OG: URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Another brand new product I tried with my look is the EYLURE - Line & Lash Adhesive Eyeliner in black. Lash adhesive liners are becoming very popular lately, but the Eylure Lash & Line is by far the best I’ve used. The liner itself is an extremely pigmented black, and the adhesive held onto my falsies all night without a single adjustment. This product beats all the other lash adhesives in my collection, and for $10, you really can’t beat it. Want to know more about this look? Drop a comment below for my lip and shadow details!👇🏻👇🏻 😘
