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.

ST PATTYS DAY | Green Lipstick | New Products

Hey everyone! The one day wearing all green and drinking Irish car bombs from sunrise to sunset is finally here; St Patrick's Day. There's a legit historical reason for the celebration but I dont want to bore you with my history and facts that may or may not be from Wikipedia. Well, I normally never do much to participate in festivities but today was slightly different because I had a green lipstick. I received the lipstick in a gift bag from GenBeauty(I'll be using products ALL year from that bag I got so much!). I usually stick to nudes so I tried to push myself to be bold today.

Black Mask | Trend | Skincare

Hey everyone! So Im pretty sure you've seen the humorous  video of a woman in excruciating pain as she removes her charcoal mask. It's hilarious and if you haven't seen it I'll link the video here. Based on the video I assumed the intensity of the mask would work wonders on the few blackheads I had. I scrolled through the comments section looking for a link to the mask so I could give it a try. Well, ladies and gentleman, the verdict is in: it works!

Flower Jelly Lipstick | Trend

Hey everyone! I received my Jelly lipstick in the mail and let me tell you, it's so cute!! This trend first came on my radar last year when Cosmopolitan featured it on their site. After reading the article I all of a sudden started to see pictures of the lipstick popping up everywhere. The brand that was stirring all the trendy pics is Kailijumei(22$). The brand in my picture is not that but I got it at a fraction of the price(1$) with an identical concept.

Selfie Lighting | Affordable

Hey everyone! You may or may not know that Im pretty much a self proclaimed "Selfie Queen" ;) I will not stop until I get a good pic for the gram or my Snapchat(@campbellsoup010). Some might say Im narcissistic but I strongly disagree. You wont ever catch me having a selfie session if my hair/makeup/outfit weren't on point. I feel like pulling together a great head to toe ensemble is an art because most people aren't that talented...*instantly thinks of their aunt who wants to fit in with the young kids so bad* So why not show off your talent??! My logic exactly! Going out at night, or having crazy California weather,  you dont always have ideal lighting so I began my search for some help.

Purple & Gold look | MORPHE 35F palette

Hey everyone! The other night I was suffering from crazy insomnia so at 2am I decided to do an entire full face of makeup, like, WHY!? I couldn't sleep and had done everything but was still awake so my last resort was this haha I actually really liked the look and wished I was going somewhere to show it off. Thank God for pictures though! Keep reading to see how I got this look :)

 Hey everyone! Ok so not sure if you remember me talking about GENBEAUTY all over my snapchat and insta but this post is all about it. Back in December I got an email from the IpsyOS team inviting me to the event and that my ticket was complimentary. I was at work when I got the email and was so excited!! Excited because I'd been wanting to go to that event, excited because I was invited as a beauty creator and excited because, hello, MAKEUP!!

SKINCARE ROUTINE for oily skin

Hey! Its been awhile so let me not waste time and get right into this post ;) I'll do a 'where I've been' post soon!


From the beginning I was quiet about it on my social media accounts because I feared something might go wrong and we wouldn't get the house. Eventually I was just like, ok I dont care. We JUST BOUGHT A HOUSE!! I started to post subliminal pictures on my snapchat of an empty lot and add a house emoji. I did it to track progress in a fun way until more development had been made. Those who knew me already knew what it meant because I was so excited I never shut up haha Talking about how we customized our home and having one built from the ground up was nothing but a blessing! Since sharing more pictures and posts many people have asked me questions...Like, how we did it/ cost etc...I made a post to talk about our home buying experience because I get so many of the same questions haha *Im no real estate agent Im just talking about what we did and explaining from my level of understanding on what I can* Bare with me & enjoy, its a long one!
