Let’s Talk About Makeup: these are a few of my favorite things


Hey hey!

I don’t know about you guys but I definitely fall in love with a few products and they become ALL I want to use. Whenever I sit down at my vanity table, my hands are roaming for these items before my butt has made full contact with the chair.

my happy place-my vanity table with all my makeup

As of late I am in love and obsessively using the following:

Morphe 35 Color Shimmer Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is a TREAT. It is 35 shimmery hues of deliciousness and best of all they are ALL fall inspired. I am a HUGE Morphe Makeup fan and that’s because every product I own from them is vibrant, applies beautifully, and best of all AFFORDABLE. That palette is under 25 $ and yet is on par with eyeshadows that I have paid WAY more money for.

Here are swatches I found on pinterest of every shadow in the palette:

As you can see theres a lot lighter colors perfect for the brow bone and the inner corner of your eye. There’s also MANY bronze/orange colors along with several beautiful dark green/olive shades.

You have SO many options, you could do at least 100 different looks with this palette. The only downside is that there’s NO matte shades so if you are on a trip you would want to bring along some matte shades to balance things out since I DONT like when an eye look is ALL shiner. You at least want a nude matte and one or two matte dark browns for blending.

Two Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo

This little highlighter duo is AMAZING.

I found it when I was at Sephora spending some birthday $$. The way light reflects off of it is so lovely, I haven’t seen a highlighter quite like this one. It really gives off this rosy glow that isn’t sparkly or overly bright. Its a subtle highlight, just a hint of warm candlelight on your cheeks when the sun hits your face in just the right way.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush & Contour Palette in Sugar & Spice

This blush palette was only 10$!! Yes that’s right! I reviewed them on my Beauty on a Budget¬†and I’m still in love with them!


This is a swatch of all the blushes on my arm in natural light.

There’s 4 matte colors and 2 shimmery highlighters

The colors are quite bright so apply sparingly! They are lovely colors though with the ability to look good on almost any skin tone.

Dior Diorshow Mascara

This mascara has been a favorite of mine for a long time. Its a bit pricey so I stopped buying it several years ago. My husband took pity on me and bought me some for my birthday and WOAH it’s just as amazing as I remember!


This is before and after using diorshow. As you can see this mascara makes your lashes POP but still looks very natural with little clumping!


Colourpop Lippiestix in Nevermind

I started seeing coulourpop products all over Pinterest and my interest was instantly peaked. I decided to order some last month and OH MY GOSH! What a fantastic company! All of their products are SUPER affordable and their lip products have become a fast favorite.


Never mind is a beautiful deep plum with a semi-matte finish.
