Time To Be #SoShamless ft. Marc Jacobs Beauty

file1-1 (1)

Hi Loves,

Today we are talking about a makeup product that I honestly don’t use very often; foundation. I don’t use it much because most of the foundations I’ve used take forever to blend, feel heavy on my skin, dry out my skin, or just look straight cakey. I don’t think it’s just me, I’ve noticed that a lot of people who wear foundation seem to have the same issue as me. Well I’m here to say I’ve found a foundation that I love! The Marc Jacobs Shameless 24 Hour Foundation. I received it free from Influenster to try out and I’ve fallen in love.

Real Techniques for the Holidays

Hi Loves,

Makeup brushes have been a thing I’ve been struggling with since starting my small beauty obsession. What are the best brushes? Should I be using a Beauty Blender? What are the best ways to get a flawless look? All these questions have floated around in my head for the last few months as I’ve tried out different brands. I was sent a set of Real Techniques brushes by Influenster for testing and reviewing purposes, and boy did I ever put them to the test!

Hi Loves,

As you may know I’ve been slowly getting into makeup recently. I don’t wear it everyday, but I love having it available to play with when I’m in the mood. A new item to the makeup scene is the Bite Beauty Multistick, which I was lucky enough to receive in three shades, curtesy of Influenster, to test and review. I do own other Bite Beauty products that I bought for myself upon the recommendation of my good friend (and makeup artist) David Lucas.

Confessions of a *Beginner* Makeup Addict

Hi Loves,

Lets just say makeup has never really been my forte. I’ve always had MAJOR respect for anyone who can do their makeup and not come away looking like a clown, but when it came to doing my own makeup I stuck with some mascara, a tinted lipgloss and called it a day.

That said, I’ve gained more interest in makeup just in the last month or so. I do have a lot of products that I’ve gotten in swag bags from different events, as presents, or that I picked up myself but never got around to using.

I think my official addiction started when I was in NYC and met up with David Lucas (AKA @Davicrocket on Instagram) and he helped me pick out an amazing lip color from Bite Beauty. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with finding lip colors that work on me, especially matte ones. Then I thought ‘Hmm maybe you should do some eye makeup to go with the lip colors’. Now I’ve been browsing the internet and I placed a couple of orders from MAC Cosmetics and Colourpop Cosmetics.

Question: When did you first get into makeup?

Answer: I first got into makeup some time in High School. I used to have pretty bad acne on my forehead. I would say I didn’t have skin on my forehead just zits. So I would use makeup to cover my skin up.

Q: What was the first makeup item you bought?

A: I remember it like it was yesterday. The first pieve of make up I ever bought was the Rimmel Hide the Blemish Cover Stick. I was with my friend and we were in Ulta and I knew I wanted a concealer.
