MOTD | Winter

makeup of the day for winter

Even though winter is coming to an end, it doesn't mean it's too late for a Winter Makeup of the Day (MOTD)! I've done a few of these on my blog before, but I think I want to start doing them every season. With every new season, I find different ways to change up my makeup to make it weather-appropriate. Since it is a little colder out, I try to stick with more moisturizing makeup, and I might even wear heavier makeup on the eyes.

The Perfect Combo? | Anastasia Illuminator in Starlight and A23 Brush

Anastasia Illuminator in Starlight and A23 Brush
When Black Friday comes around every year I stalk all my favorite beauty websites for amazing deals. To be honest, I haven't tried much from Anastasia but back in November they had a deal to get their new highlighters at a discount and receive their brush for free. So I picked up their Illuminator in Starlight and the A23 brush. Who really needs more highlighters? I definitely didn't! But I snagged the deal and now I would love to share my thoughts!

Today I have a really exciting review to share with all of you! I am a huge fan of Sephora's favorites kit! They come with many products at a great value.

Hopefully it will come back in stock if you would like to try it for yourself!

First Impression | L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation review

Hello lovelies! Today I am doing a highly requested post, a first impression on the L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion foundation. The whole cushion foundation trend, I believe, started in Asia, but it has been making its way to the US. I was very excited when I first heard about it a few months ago, so when I saw it in stores I was lucky enough to find a sealed foundation in my shade. This foundation is a little pricey, around $15, depending where you buy it. I would definitely recommend trying to use a coupon like at Ulta.
