Winter Makeup Routine

Today, I thought I would share my winter makeup routine with y'all. I've been testing some new makeup products and love this combo!

I tested the look on my sister, Natalie:



FACE

Face Base Illuminating Primer | Models Own

I use clean fingers to apply this product onto my face. (CAUTION: It is extremely sparkly!)

Dream Fresh BB Cream | Maybelline

I use a wet sponge to apply this product to my face. I like to use two coats of this product because it's so sheer. If I have any redness/imperfections I'll go with a concealer.

#NoFilter Finishing Powder | NYX Professional Makeup

This is my favorite powder of all time. It makes my skin look so smooth and radiant.

Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush | Tarte Cosmetics

I love this blush! It lasts a whole school day, which is a miracle to me.

High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter | Benefit Cosmetics

As far as I'm concerned, this is the best highlighter on the market. I like to apply this to not only my cheekbones, but the center of my face too.

EYES

Highliner Gel Eye Crayon  | Marc Jacobs Beauty

I simply tight line my upper lash line.

Troublemaker Mascara | Urban Decay

I don't love this mascara, but it's growing on me. I definitely prefer Urban Decay's Perversion mascara.

Brow Shaping Gel | Ulta Beauty

I like to run a bit of product through my brows to keep them in place. This product does just the trick!

LIPS

Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss | Essence Makeup

This is my favorite lipgloss. I can't say enough great things about it. It's so shiny! A little bit goes a long way (and it lasts a really long time, too!) My go to trick: Apply a little bit of product to the center of your lips. Not only does it look more natural, but it makes your lips appear fuller. Win, win!


Question of the Week: What's your favorite makeup product? 

10 Things To Do On Spring Break

Spring Break is right around the corner! I am so excited to be able to take a break and focus on my mental health-- college can be so stressful!


1. Catch up on school work.

Now is as good as time as any to get caught up on assignments. You can work at your own speed and devote the time necessary to that assignment you've been putting off.

2. Get ahead on assignments.

So, maybe you're like me and want to get ahead on some assignments. Not a bad idea! I like to use break as a time to get ahead on readings and final projects.

3. Do some spring cleaning.

I know when I come home for the weekends, I usually don't do much cleaning. Now is a perfect time to dust my room and clean out any old makeup in my drawers.

4. Catch up on some sleep.

I know I'm not the only one who stayed up until 2 AM last week writing a paper for my psychology class. Girl, take this time to rest.

5. Get together with high school friends.

If you're home and you have the time, get together with your high school friends. It will be nice to see their faces again.

6. Work on a hobby.

I'm sure you all know my hobby is blogging. It's my pride and joy. If you have a hobby dedicate some time to it. In college, you're always working on assignments. Now is a great time to show yourself some love.

7. Go to the beach.

For the Instagram pics.

8. Spend some quality time with your family.

I spend Monday-Friday at Cabrini University. I spend Saturdays running around and Sundays are really the only day I get to see my family. And, that's when soccer season isn't in session. And, when is it not?

9. Go on a mini vacation.

Hey, if you're bank account allows for it, get away for awhile!

10. Relax.

Do a face mask. Paint your nails. Watch Netflix.
