Earth Tones

Earth Tones

I put together this simple and affordable outfit for that casual Sunday brunch with the girls. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am the BIGGEST thrifty shopper they know. I am always looking for the big red sign that reads SALE! When you’re a beauty on a budget like I am, that’s the first thing you spot. I truly believe you can find great clothes and shoes at an affordable price. I decided to stick with all earth tones for this look including the makeup. Hope you enjoy!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

It’s all about the matte lip right now; every cosmetic company is coming out with their own version of a liquid lipstick.  I personally LOVE a good liquid lipstick but not everyone likes the drying effect that a liquid lipstick gives. For those of you still looking for a good matte lipstick without the extreme drying… Nyx soft matte lip creams are the way to go!!  These lip creams are the perfect in between; you still get a matte finish without it drying out your lips.  There are 22 different shades of the lip creams at an affordable price ($5.99 @ Ulta.com).   These are a definite must have in your lipstick collection!  Here are a few swatches of some neutral and bright summer colors.

June Favorites

Can you believe June has come and gone so quickly?  Don’t blink because you’ll miss out on life and can someone please tell them to slow down the time!  With that being said I’d figure I’d jump into the products that I have been obsessing over this past month.  Summer typically calls for less makeup but…yea I don’t do less makeup 🙂  I am a full-face at all times type of gal.  So while some typically have BB or CC creams, I have full foundation, blush, and bronzers, it’s just me and I love it!

Let me just say the hype on the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR foundation is REAL!!  This foundation is EVERYTHING!   For those of you who are oily, this will be your new best friend.  This foundation will not budge, no matter how hot or sweaty you get this sucker is staying on all day.   The only major downfall is the color selection.  They tend to have more of a yellow undertone to them, and the shades do not match up with the L’Oréal True Match foundations.   I mix my shade (107) with my other favorite foundation, Maybelline Fit Me (310), to get the perfect color.  I promise you, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!
