My Go-To Glam Makeup Routine

Hey dolls, Happy Monday, hope you had an amazing weekend! 

Today I have beauty post for you! Super excited to share my go-to glam makeup look. This look uses some of my current favorite products. While away on a business trip this week I wore this look all week and not only was it quick and easy but I felt FLAWLESS wearing it! Listen, I am a makeup lover through and through but I do not beat my face that often. I work from home so I don't usually have the need to get all dolled up everyday. I will be challenging myself to get dressed and do my face daily. For no other reason besides it makes me feel better when I look better. So here it is my go-to look for that daily glam look.

Foundation: Let's start with the base. I have been severely underutilizing my Fenty Beauty Pro Matte Foundation. I picked this up when my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation was running low and ran out the door. So glad I picked it out of my stash because I truly love it all over again. I'm in the shade 420 and I think it's a perfect match. 

Concealer: Admittedly, I'm a bit of a concealer hoarder. It kind of just happened by accident. One day I was buying a backup and the next I had almost a drawer full of concealers I wanted to "try". The Colourpop No Filter Concealer was one of them. I tried it about two weeks ago and have been loving it ever since. I know exactly why so many people are a fan of this product it truly is a MUST TRY and for 6 bucks you won't regret it. I'm in the shade Dark 46 but think I'll go a bit lighter for a brighter look for now this works. 

Eyes: Huda Beauty lil min palettes are so stinkin cute and easy to travel with. My favorite is the Warm Brown Obsessions palette. It's small and compact and perfect for Fall. 9 shades of creamy, pigmented goodness. It's 29 bucks so a tad pricey compared to drugstore brands but I've had mine for at least a year and no where near pan on any shade. 

Lashes: Do yourself a favor and check out some the Ardell Double Up lashes in the style double wispies. I freakin love these lashes, like, a lot! 

Powder: Not everyone NEEDS powder to set their face. I my friends am not one of these people. AT ALL. I will end up a greasy mess within an hour or two if I don't. If I do it usually takes at least 6 hours for the shine to break through. Now I have been trying different setting powders along the way and my Laura Mercier powder is one I've decided to STOP playing myself over. If I use something else I tend to regret it, so yeah I'm about done playing the experimentation game with powders. Do yourself a favor and just buy THIS one. 

Blush: My go to blush is Raizin by MAC. Again another one of those "if it an't broke, don't fix it" products. 

Highlighter: Currently I'm wearing the Wet n' Wild highlighting powder in Crown of My Canopy. I have multiple highlighters and it's not the best but it does the job. This is a good one and only a few bucks at your local drugstore. 

Setting Spray: This is the glue that holds it all together. Or should I say hairspray that sets the entire look together. I recently tried this Morphe Continuous Setting Spray and I like it I do. However, my usual go-to is the Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray

Makeup Monday's: ABH x Jackie Aina Palette Review

Good Morning Dolls!

Happy Monday to you, I hope you had a great weekend and day is off to a good start so far. I wanted to come to you today with a beauty post. I'm still getting my footing with my blogging schedule. I'm thinking makeup/beauty on Monday, Fashion/Shopping on Wednesday and Lifestyle on Friday's. Let us see how this works but putting it out there to hold myself to it. With that being said please let me know down below what products you would like to see on the blog. I've been really into skincare, haircare and makeup as always so I will consider all those on a Monday. 

So today we will chat about the Anastasia Beverly Hills X Jackie Aina palette! I purchased this palette as soon as it dropped but just now talking about it. I have been a fan of Jackie Aina since her Army days. When she collaborated with ABH and seen this palette I knew I had to support because's GORGEOUS!!

14 shades that are perfection for women of color and FALL, I just couldn't resist. I can easily see this being my go to palette for the season and really going forward. All ABH shades are typically super creamy and easy to blend and this palette does not disappoint. I also love this palette include a nice sized mirror and brush that's actually GOOD!

So these beauty posts I'm still figuring out dolls. If you want to know something specific for these posts please let me know and I'll make sure I capture them in future posts. Do you want to see swatches (I plan on doing that in the future, btw), step by step tutorials, a quick video attached etc. That's all I have for today so thank you for spending time with me, I hope you have an amazing day!
