Advice for My Teenage Self Tag Video

28 Nov

Hello lovelies!

Sorry it’s been a while since I posted anything, but between Thanksgiving, my cousin’s wedding, and a nasty stomach virus I haven’t really had a moment to spare. I did want to pop by to let you all know that I posted a new youtube video today! It’s a little tag video about all the things I would tell my teenage self. I think it’s a really fun tag and I really enjoyed filming it. I hope you all enjoy watching it!

Please give it a thumbs up if you like it and subscribe to my channel on youtube if you’re interested!

As always, thanks for watching!!

What would you tell your teenage self if you had the opportunity?

MAC Cherry Lip Liner

13 Nov

I’ve been wearing a lot of red lipstick lately. Don’t ask me why, I’ve just been on a kick. I’ve never really been that into lip liners though. I guess I never really thought they were all that necessary, but since I’ve been rocking the red pout lately I’ve found myself thinking I could use one. So, I popped into MAC and picked up their lip liner in Cherry. I chose this shade because it is just a true red that will go with whatever shade of red I happen to be wearing. I’ve loved using this liner so far and I find that it just adds a little extra definition to my lips and makes the lipstick last quite a bit longer. I might just be converted into a lip liner lover!

Do you wear lip liners? What’s your favorite?

MAC Glamour Daze Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Stolen Moment

6 Nov

So the over the weekend I popped into MAC to pick up a lipliner and I walked out with said lipliner and a little something extra. I was perusing the holiday collection while waiting for someone to check me out and I have to say that I wasn’t terribly¬†impressed¬†by most of the offerings. Not that they weren’t good products, they just weren’t anything different that I felt I needed to add to my collection – with one exception. This eyeshadow from the Glamour Daze collection caught my eye immediately. Now I’ll admit that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with taupe eyeshadows, so the fact that I was drawn to this comes as no surprise. The difference with this eyeshadow to me is the texture. It’s very shimmery, but not at all sparkly and it is super soft and blendable. The perfect texture in my mind.

I wore this eyeshadow yesterday and I seriously got so many compliments. I always take that as a sign that I’ve made a good choice! The shadow retails for $19.50 and it is sold out online, but my local counter still had plenty of them. As with most MAC collections though it might not last for long, so if you’re interested in this beautiful shade I would suggest you go to your local counter soon!

Have you tried any of the new MAC holiday collection? What’s your go to eyeshadow shade?
