Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and spent lots of time with their daddy! Today is Konnor and I’s 4 year anniversary!!! YAY!! I am so grateful to call him mine forever and love how much we have grown these past 4 years. He is definitely the one who keeps me calm and always makes me laugh through any positive or negative situation. I am so ready to spend many many more years with him enjoying the adventures this life brings our way! Tonight, I am fixing us a special dinner…that I got off of Tasty! We are having garlic shrimp Alfredo with bruschetta and finishing with chocolate mousse…YUM! Follow my Insta story to see me cooking and how it turns out!

Now! Lets talk about these SUPER affordable and amazing products! Most of these products I use on an everyday basis and recommend 100%. Below is a full list of all product details! Also, comment below if you would like to see a step by step makeup tutorial using these products. Enjoy!


Foundations and Concealer: I have been using these two foundations every day this summer, and love how full coverage they are! As you might have read in my previous posts, I struggle with extreme redness and have a hard time finding a trusted foundation that covers completely without looking cakey! These two foundations are perfect for giving me a flawless skin like look AND covering 99.9% of my redness! Next, we have the Maybelline “Fit Me” concealer. I compare this concealer to the NARS radiant creamy concealer (which is also one of my favorite high end concealers). What I like about this concealer is how well it highlights under the eyes and T zone. It brightens the right amount and is very lightweight which is a must for me!

Eyeshadows: Y’ALL…Let me first start by saying how pigmented these shadows are. The slightest amount of these eyeshadows will go a LONG way! I was definitely in shock how pigmented they were when I first received them in the mail. Simply one of the creamiest, easy blendable, pigmented, affordable shadows I have ever had hands down! Also, this Maybelline single eyeshadow is SUPER pigmented as well and is a great black shadow for any smokey eye! COLORS: Twilight, Whimsical, Cosmopolitan, Cupcake, Frappe, Creme brulee, Purely naked, Rapunzel, Shimma Shimma, Peach smoothie, Vanilla bean, Ice queen

Mascara, Eyeliner and Brow Pencil: I recently purchased this mascara and really like how thick and voluminous it makes my lashes look! Next,  is this Ulta eyeliner that I seriously have had for so long now and still have lots of product left! This liner is all that an eyeliner needs to be…super black, twistable packaging and lots of product! Lastly, is the NYX eyebrow pencil. I am going to be honest, I do not have to work a lot on my eyebrows with them naturally being so full. With that said, I like this brow pencil because it is easy to fill in those small gaps and brush down any crazy brow hairs!

Bronzer, Blush and Setting Powder: I decided to purchase this bronzer after watching a review of it on Casey Holmes Youtube channel. I am actually so glad that I did after using it the first time! I feel that it gives my skin that perfect bronzey glow and is super easy to blend! Next, I want to talk about the Maybelline stick blush. I am really impressed with the color and how well it blends with it being a cream base. Last, I am LOVING this Setting powder from NYX. I am an extremely oily skin type and like to powder the mess out of my face haha! This product has been perfect for keeping me matte all day long and not giving me a white cast in photos. Obsessed!

Lips: Before makeup application, I always start off by moisturizing my lips and love using this eos lip balm. This lip balm smells soo good and gets the job done! I am naturally drawn to all kinds of nude and pink shades so these lip products have been an extremely affordable and trusted choice! For lipstick, this L’Oreal one is the perfect nude and smells like baby powder which I am not complaining about haha! This NYX lip liner is super creamy and has a nice neutral tone to line any nude or pale pink shade! My favorite lip product right now is this Colourpop liquid lipstick! This lipstick dries very quickly, stays on all day and is THE most pigmented liquid lipstick I have tried on the affordable side. Right now, I have 4 shades of this liquid lipstick and absolutely love every one of them!
