Everyday WORK Makeup | 15min TOPS

 Hey everyone! As you may or may not know Im in the military(GO NAVY!) Often times our schedule is so demanding we don't have much time to get ready but if you're someone like me then you make time haha My thing is, I have to at least cover up my dark circles and pretend that my life is well maintained so my junior personnel can be a mirror of that to our fellow crew. Like, yeah we work crazy hours and barely sleep but we STILL look good af! haha maybe that's just me but whatever. This is a "no makeup - makeup look" with DRUGSTORE products that will take you 15min or less, promise.

Hey everyone! I posted a picture to my twitter showcasing my brows and I got retweeted by my fav makeup brand Benefit!! Not a big deal to some but to me it is :) you can find the tweet here. My brows are naturally pretty thick so I just have to fill in the sparse parts and add more definition. I wanted to try all of the products but found them individually sorta pricey but then they came out with a brow kit that had everything I wanted! (well I bought the brow pencil separate earlier) I'll do a tutorial on how I achieve my brows soon.  Keep reading to see my first makeup tutorial ;)

Love it or Leave it | Dupes

Hey everyone! Recently I've been following a lot of beauty trends and found one on dupes. In this post I'll be showing you a couple of  products I use religiously and their high end/ affordable dupes and which ones I love or which Im gonna have to leave(because of either price or functionality for me).
Starting with my intro pic: I bought the NARS radiant creamy concealer last year and have loved it ever since. Im finally almost out and was about to go buy a new one when I stopped at CVS to pick up a prescription and happened to walk past the makeup section. I saw Wet n Wilds display and wanted to try their new foundation, but was unsuccessful in finding my shade, so I decided to try their Photo focus concealer instead.
