Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! I’ve recently gotten a TON of questions about what mascaras I use sooo I figured it was time to write a whole post on my favorites. I’m a mascara junkie – I loveee it and probably own WAY too many, but I’m OK with it! Today I’ll share what I’ve been using recently that I’ve been loving!

Beauty Talk: Best Mascaras

1. Stila Huge Extreme Lash: This has been my latest obsession and I absolutely love it. It’s great not only for lengthening but for providing volume as well. I also love using black mascara and I feel like this one is super black. It’s a very wet formula so it’s great for someone who loves to add a lot of layers (me!). The only downfall with this mascara is that it’s messy! Whenever I close the tube there’s ALWAYS mascara on the outside and it creates quite the mess.

2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I always feel SO funny when people ask me what mascara I’m wearing and I have to tell them it’s called “Better Than Sex.” But seriously, this stuff is GOLD. I love layering this mascara on top of the Stila Huge Extreme Lash. This one is also a pretty wet formula so it’s great for layering. You can let the Stila mascara dry a bit and then go ahead and apply this one on top after. Both mascaras are great on their own but I personally love the combination of the two!

3. Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara: Ok guys this one has been a tried and true favorite for YEARS now. And I’m sure you’ve heard all about it from other people BUT let me tell you how I use this mascara. In my opinion, this one is great for lengthening and getting rid of any clumps that may have formed. I usually apply this one after the Too Faced one (I know, seems so high maintenance and it kind of is! lol). I don’t always apply this one but if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll do the extra step. I’ll also use this one on my bottom lashes. I feel like the previous two mascaras I mentioned are too thickening to use on my bottom lashes so I usually use this one! I love this mascara too because of the applicator. It has a ball on the end of it that helps reach those tiny lashes that you can’t typically reach with a normal applicator.

4. Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer: I feel like lash primers are often overlooked and I wish people realized the beauty of them! I’ll be honest – I rarely use one but when I do, I use the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer. This is so great for lengthening your lashes BEFORE you even put mascara on. You apply this – it looks funny because it’s white – and then you apply your mascara right on top! It really works wonders and I highly recommend using this for someone who doesn’t have the longest lashes. It makes a world of a difference!

5. Tarte Mandater: Another great name for a mascara if you ask me! This one is another favorite that I’ve been loving recently. First of all, the packaging is SO cute. Also this mascara is another great one for lengthening! I’ll use this one the same way that I use the Benefit one. It’s great on it’s own if all you’re looking for is lengthening and a bit of volume, but I think it works best when layered on top of another mascara!

April Wednesday Wishlist

April Wednesday Wishlist

Hi everyone! Welcome to my April Wednesday Wishlist!

I’m back with yet ANOTHER wish list! I add things to my wish list every single day (you could say I have a problem!) This month a lot of the things that are on my wish list have to do with makeup, jewelry, and shoes. I have ALWAYS loved jewelry (who doesn’t, right?) and recently I have become obsessed with trying out different makeup brands and products. Here are some of the products on my wish list this month:

From left to right: Bauble Bar Earrings // Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines // JCrew Romper // Urban Decay Bronzer // Quay Sunglasses // Striped Dress // Ugg Wedges // Benefit Cheek Palette

Makeup: I have heard so many great things about this Benefit Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer and I really want to try it out this summer. I have a bunch of events coming up (as I’m sure a lot of you do too) and I definitely would rather not have tanlines. I feel like this product will be perfect for adding a touch of color to your body without looking fake! Another makeup item that I want to try is the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer. I have never tried an Urban Decay bronzer before, and I am looking for a new bronzer! Now onto palettes – I am a sucker for blush and this Benefit cheek palette is just calling my name! I love the colors and they are FULL size products and the whole palette is only $56. Amazing. Another palette that I want to get my hands on is the Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio. I love hourglass products and I feel like this palette will be a great addition to my makeup collection.

Clothes & Accessories: These Bauble Bar earrings are so fun and I’m crushing on turquoise right now! I love the style of these and the color combination – I think they’ll be perfect for summer! This JCrew romper is right up my alley. I love how its simple because I can pair bright and bold accessories with it! I think it would look super cute with this jean jacket. Let’s just take a moment to admire this dress. The colors. The style. EVERYTHING about this dress is amazing. It’s in the higher price range, but I feel like a dress like this is worth the investment. It comes in another color too!

Did you know that Uggs made sandals? I had no clue! When I saw these wedges I was so surprised to see that they were made by Ugg! I love them and I feel like they will be super comfy. They’re the type of wedge that you can wear with anything (like the black romper or striped dress!) and they will look good. They also won’t break the bank – they’re reasonably priced! Ok let’s talk about this Bauble Bar necklace. My cousin actually texted me earlier saying she wanted a choker necklace – and I think I found the perfect one! This one comes in a few colors and is super girlie and cute. I love it and I think anyone can pull it off!

Now for the last two products on my wish list (I am dying for both of these!)These sunglasses have been on my wishlist for a while now. I don’t know why I don’t just buy them – they are only $50! I think they’re SO unique and so cool, and I have a weakness for sunglasses, I seem to want them all (yikes!!). And last but not least, this David Yurman bracelet is seriously screaming my name. I am hoping to get it for graduation (hint, hint!) or I will save up for it! As you may know, I always have a stack of bracelets on, and this one will go perfectly with all of my other accessories!

 

WOW this was definitely a long post! I hope you enjoyed my April Wednesday Wishlist! What’s on YOUR wish list this month??

Thanks for reading!

Rose All Day

Rose All Day

Hi everyone! In today’s post I’m featuring this Rose All Day shirt! Enjoy!

Rebecca Minkoff Bag // Rose All Day Shirt // Similar Sunglasses // Nike Sneakers // Bauble Bar Bracelet // Urban Decay Lip Color // Bauble Bar Ring

This Rose All Day shirt has quickly become a favorite of mine! The material is SO soft and who doesn’t love a cute graphic tee like this?? For this look I paired it with skinny jeans and my favorite Nike sneakers. I love how the gold from the sneakers goes with the gold in the shirt.

To add a pop of color to this look, I paired it with my  Rebecca Minkoff bag with the most colorful tassels. I also wore some tassel bracelets from Bauble Bar which are perfect for adding color to any look. And recently I tried Urban Decay’s lip gloss and I absolutely love it. The color stays on ALL day and isn’t too sticky at all. I have never been a big fan of lip gloss because I always feel that it’s sticky – I’m glad I found this one that doesn’t feel that way! I’m wearing it in the color ‘electric pink.’

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I styled this Rose All Day shirt!
