My Eyeshadow Collection

I’ve probably said this a gazillion times but I’ll say it again, “I don’t really wear eyeshadow”.  I don’t really know why. I wear foundation, lipstick basically everything else, but you will rarely, ever see me wear eyeshadow. Do I hate it? I don’t think so, I guess I’ve never really found the use for it, because I like my makeup really simple. I’m not trying to bring out my eyes OK? Haha. Recently though, I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone. Keep reading.

Today, I want to show off My Eyeshadow Collection. I blog a lot and I find that wearing eyeshadow, brings out my eyes and makes my pictures stand out more. I just love the dramatics of it all. This is not a review, I’m just showing off my growing eyeshadow collection. Here it goes!

Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Spice Edition – I recently bought this from my local drug store. I like this eyeshadow palette, because of the rustic colours. There’s a lot of red, burgundy and brown. I find that these colours look the best on me. Shop it Herefullsizeoutput_1464.jpeg

Rimmel London’s Magnif’eyes Mono Eyeshadow – This a brown shimmery color that I love wearing. I wear this every time I put on eyeshadow. I use it as a base to put on other eyeshadow, or I  wear it by itself. As you can see, it’s almost done because I use it so much. Shop it Here

Quo Colour Wonderland Eye, Lip and Cheek Collection – My brother bought this for me for Christmas last year and I absolutely love it. There are so many colours to choose from! It’s insane. I like this because whether I want to go simple, or, dramatic there’s a color for that. This is from my local Shoppers Drug mart.

Why I like Wearing Makeup

 

Have I always been into makeup? No. I was more of a tomboy growing up.Did my mom teach me how to wear lipstick and foundation? No. My mom doesn’t even care about makeup.So how did I get to start like wearing makeup? Keep reading to find out.

I can’t really pinpoint the exact moment when I started to like makeup but it wasn’t at age 8 or 14. At those ages I was more interested in books, more than anything else. I was probably 25, when I bought my first Mac lipstick. My first foundation was Black Opal which I found in a store across the street.

I didn’t know what Sephora or Nyx was until about a year ago, when I started working across the road from the mall. I was in a professional environment so I didn’t want to look like I just woke up out of bed, so that’s when I started getting more into wearing makeup.

My coworkers would talk about different brands that they use and what works and what doesn’t work. It was all so new to me, but so intriguing so I started buying different foundations and really seeing what works  best.

So Why do I like wearing  makeup?

1.I think because I’m a creative person makeup gives me the chance to create. It’s like my face is the blank canvas and I can just paint whatever picture I want people to see. I love that. One day I can be sultry, the next day I can look simple. It’s awesome.

2. It makes me feel confident. Yes, I know we should all be confident without makeup, and I am, but it just makes me feel more confident. It makes me feel like I can just go up to anyone and talk to them without having to worry about how I look. I know you girls can relate.

3. It enhances my best features. I have high cheek bones and wearing makeup, specifically contouring my face, helps show my cheek bones and enhances them. If I want my eyes to pop, putting on mascara helps with that. Makeup is just the bomb.

4. I have dark spots on my face so foundation helps to cover that up. I’m just being real with ya’ll. My skin isn’t perfect but makeup helps it to look good

I love makeup and I’m probably not going to stop wearing it. I also really don’t care if people say I wear too much makeup because people’s opinions don’t really matter to me.

I also don’t wear makeup 90% of the time but when I do, I like to get all up  in it.

I’m also trying to get rid of my dark spots so you know? I’m working on myself.

And to guys who bash girls who wear makeup, “Leave them alone”. It’s not your face, so don’t judge. Some girls like to wear a lot, some don’t wear any at all. Love people for who they are.

If you don’t wear makeup I don’t judge. As I always say ,”Do you”.

Makeup is fun though, you should try it sometime. XOXO

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer

Girls always talk about the foundations they use, but what about what’s under your Foundation? Do you use lotion or primer? Do you apply a lot of primer or little primer. Do you like your primer creamy or hydrating? Do you even use primers bro? So many questions.

Today, I’ll be discussing the Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer

I have the sample size which I got from Sephora as a free gift with my points.  At first, I was skeptical about trying it but I decided to be open minded

I do photoshoots for my blog on Sundays and I Always wear makeup for this, so I decided instead of using up all my Fenty Beauty primer, to use this with my Maybelline Foundation.

Things I like about this primer

  • It’s very hydrating – When I put this on, it feels like I just washed my face. My face feels so hydrated and cool.
  • It leaves my makeup looking fresh with a healthy glow – I have oily skin, so the fact that this doesn’t make me oily, is a miracle.
  • It’s not heavy – Some primers can feel really heavy but when I apply this to my face it feels like I have nothing on. My face doesn’t feel like bricks Haha
  • It makes my makeup look flawless – Every time that I have this primer on, it makes my foundation look so flawless and airbrushed and it shows in my pictures. I woke up like this, I woke up like this.

Overall, I really like this primer and I’ll use it again. The only thing I don’t like is the price. Fifty dollars for a primer? Girl, bye. Just give me the samples please and thank you.

What primers do you use?
