Tarte Thursday

I just went to Ulta and picked up a couple things.  I was only supposed to go get my favorite hair spray, but they stopped carrying it…sad day 😕  Instead, I found a new palette and I’ve always wanted the rose gold eyeliner from Tarte.  The eyeliner is the Tartist Pro glitter liner and it retails for $24.  The palette is called “Don’t Quit Your Day Dream.”  It retails for $29.  I will do a look with these two products this weekend and post it either Sunday or Monday.  I will be at cheer camp this weekend and won’t be home until about 3:30-4 on Father’s Day.  Here a couple of pictures!

Happy Thursday all!  I’m hoping to have a new YouTube video soon!

Favorites!

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been in a slump lately.  Hoping this will get me out of it now that I have time to dedicate to blog.  I’m hoping for a post 2 or 3 times a week!  Going for 3 times a week.  I haven’t done a “Favorites” post in sooooooo long so here we go!

  1. Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation
    Arbonne FoundationThis is my favorite foundation!  It is weightless and 100% vegan!  It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.  I can wear it from morning to night and not feel a thing.  With other foundations, it would irritate my skin by the end of the day, but this one does not make me feel like I’m wearing makeup.  I am in the color neutral beige, but I usually have to buy another one because I get super tan in the summer.  It is literally the best foundation I have ever used.  You can order your foundation here!

    2. Arbonne Makeup Primer
    Arbonne Primer
    Best makeup primer ever!  It is not oily and works like it needs to!  For those who don’t know, the Arbonne brand is pure, safe, and beneficial.  There are no dyes, no parabens, no animal products, etc.  As we are all getting older please be careful what you are putting on your skin.  26 seconds is all it takes for the chemicals in your personal care products to enter your bloodstream.

    3. Arbonne the Real Conceal
    Arbonne Concealer
    Love this concealer!  Just like the foundation, it is light weight.  Arbonne has seven different shades and they match perfectly, and just like the foundation, I will have to get two different colors because of the summer time.

    4. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette
    Rainforest of the Sea
    As you all know, I have a problem and I love neutral palettes.  😀  I can’t help it!  It is very pigmented though.  I love this palette!  Tarte has stepped up their game when they created the Rain Forest of the Sea line.  I feel like the pink and purple are like mermaid colors, I love these colors and they are all shimmer!  I got this from Sephora, and it retails for $36.

    5. Milani’s Matte Lip Creme (Adorable)
    Amour Matte lip creme
    Probably the perfect nude lip.  It is also the dupe for Kylie’s Candy K lip color.  I think this retails for $6-$8 vs. Kylie Cosmetics $29.  I love this color and wear it all the time.  Definitely check out more colors from Milani.

    6. NYX HD Finishing Powder
    NYX setting powder
    HOLY GRAIL.  The only finishing powder I use.  For $10, that’s a steal!  The perfect makeup setter.  My makeup stays and is matte.  It doesn’t dry out my face.  I got this at Ulta, but you can also get it at Target or wherever they sell NYX products.  This is my favorite drugstore brand.

    Thank you all for reading!  I am making it my goal to blog three times a week so I will hold myself to that.  If you want, you can drop some ideas down below in the comments, and I will try my best to accommodate it!

    Happy Monday

Las Vegas!

  You’re probably wondering, where the hell I’ve been.  Well, on Sunday technically Monday at 2am, I just flew back from Las Vegas for Arbonne’s Global Training Conference (GTC)!  It was my first one ever, and I met a ton of great people, got to know my roommates and teammates better, and learned A LOT.  At GTC there were 20,000+ people!  Don’t believe the hype:
The conference was at the MGM Grand Arena, and then there was an Abundance area aka the overflow room that had 15,000 people in there!  One of the best conferences I’ve ever been to.
Team Freedom at Tom Urbans!  Shout out to Stacey Lindsey for treating us to dinner that night.
If you’ve ever been to Vegas, lots of walking, eating, and drinking.  There were a lot of great speakers that changed my life the past week.  I even met my spirit animal who was the keynote speaker at GTC.
The picture above, there was a shop Arbonne boutique and two giant “a’s” that you could sign.  Pretty sure I signed Team Freedom STL…and something else then drew a heart around it.

Please stayed tuned because I will be starting a YouTube channel soon!

Wine About It

Yes, I’ve been MIA.  I was going through cheer tryouts, for those of you who don’t know, I am a cheer coach at my former high school. (:  Yes, I do love it.  You’re probably wondering how it’s like dealing with teenage girls, but it’s not so bad.  It has it’s ups and downs, but more ups!  Followed by cheer tryouts from Monday-Thursday from 5:30-8:30pm, after work on Friday, I drove to Hermann, MO for a bachlorette weekend.  My best friend is getting married!  Here are a few pictures from our adventures this past weekend.  Needless to say, I got home Sunday mid-morning and crashed for a couple of hours.

Gorgeous weather and great wine, and I couldn’t ask for better friends to spend the weekend with.  I know this post is different from all, obviously, but I thought I’d share some of my personal life with you guys since you’ve been following me for a while now.

I think I’m gonna do a tutorial tonight, and post it tomorrow so stay tuned!  Hope your Monday is great, see ya guys!

Glow Kit!

It’s here!!!  I’ve jumped through a lot of hoops to try and get this Glow Kit, and I finally have it!!!!  It is sold out at Sephora online and in stores, it is not sold at Ulta either.  It retails for $40.  My favorite vlogger Nicole Guerriero finally got her dream come true and did a collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills!  She created her very own, beautiful glow kit with six shades!
The six shades are beautifully pigmented and she named them herself.  Here are swatches of them.  They are not only highlights, but you can use them as eyeshadows as well.
From top to bottom is: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Day Dream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter, and 143.  Kitty Kat is like a nude pink, Forever Young is a light nude color, Day Dream is a very bright pink, Forever Lit is obviously white and one of the best highlights for the cheeks and inner tear ducts, Glo Getter is a gold, and 143 is a bronze.

Get this while you can!

Genius Ultra

#arbonne

Hello all!  It’s been way too long and I’ve been way too stressed.  I’ve had a lot of cheer related events going on and our season is still not over.  So to deal with the stress, I’ve been pampering myself with the Genius Ultra from Arbonne!

You can purchase the Genius Ultra by itself, but who wouldn’t want the products to go with it.  The three products that I received (Arbonne is running a special right now on this, until supplies last) is the firming neck cream, the serum, and lifting and contouring eye cream.

I wash my face with my Arbonne smoothing facial cleanser and then use the eye cream under my eyes.  I dot it all under my eye and use the Genius Ultra in circular motions to apply the cream.  Before I apply the eye cream, I use the serum since it makes my face firm.  I let it dry and let my skin absorb it and then I use the eye cream.  The eye cream delivers the appearance of a more lifted, awakened skin.  It tones the skin and restores a firmer look to the eye area.

Not only do you have to use the Genius Ultra with the eye cream, but with any of your moisturizers.  The device has three levels of warmth (yes, it warms up and makes your face feel awesome).  You’ll want to pat any remaining product on to your skin, do not rub.  After you are finished, you’ll want to clean the Genius Ultra with a soft cloth.

As for the neck cream, I use this before putting on any moisturizer.  This neck cream helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles.  It has become a favorite of mine.  The entire RE9 Advance set from Arbonne is what I’ve replaced my full morning and night routine with.

Mini Haul

I had $50 to spend at Ulta so of course, I wanted to try some new products from NYX.  I have one product not pictured, which is the Honey Dew.  I’ve already used it and love it.  No, it is not sticky if you were thinking that 😄 I’ve also already tried the Totak Control foundation and I love that too.  It is a dropper foundation.  If you’ve tried MAC’s lightweight foundation, it’s just like that, but cheaper!  It retails for about $13.  It’s full coverage & it’s lightweight.  I feel like there’s nothing on my face when I have it on.

I haven’t tried the illuminator stick yet, but it’s such a great copper color.  Here is a swatch below:

I wanted to try their eyebrow wand.  Ive never done my eyebrows before so thought I would give this a whirl.  The best thing I bought is the Tarteist Pro To Go.  The colors are gorgeous and I will be creating a Valentine’s Day look with this palette!

I LOVE THESE COLORS!  This little palette retails for about $23.  My favorite color is the gold in the middle and the shiner color on the very bottom.  I like all of these colors though.  Everyday and night look ❤️
