#MakeupMonday
So I have lots of drug store favorites but I narrowed it down to just 5! If you're anything like me you'll probably have the urge to run to your local store and pick up some/all of these items and I figured more then 5 products would be too much pressure : p
So here are my HOLY GRAIL items from the Drug Store.. I will not be including ELF products because I wanted to stay with products that "WalGreens & CVS" carry :)  I will be happy to do a ELF Must Haves blog though if requested!  Okay on to the fun part.. 


LIPSTICK:
Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick offers all the creamy luxuriousness of high-end lipsticks without the wallet-depleting price. And its nondrying formula will stay put well after your three o’clock coffee run. I cant forget to mention the color selection is huge. It was hard to choose my favorite color but I narrowed it down to 1 and I think this color looks great on everyone!! (Gorgeous peachy nude) Cream: DEMURE  **Dupe Alert** Left: MAC SHY …

I am constantly trying new products and Im excited to share with you my favorites and must haves purchased in 2012!  Enjoy..
Eye makeup Remover: Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover This is my definite Holy Grail eye makeup remover! Ive tried others and nothing compares.. Im now on my 5th bottle ! It takes off even the toughest eye make-up in a gentle way, and is not irritating at all on my sensitive eyes. I use it with a cotton ball and with just one my eye makeup is gone! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Foundation Primer and Eye Primer: Benefit The Porefessional This stuff is heaven sent! I started with a sample and have gone back for the full size. Not only does it make your pores and lines appear smaller it helps with shine as well.. I have no shine with this product and that for me is amazing! I love this primer with any foundation and Another reason I am in love with this product is: if you have a blemish you can dab extra primer on that area, delicately cover with concealer using a concealer bru…

10 Mascara Tips & Tricks

1.How to Properly Apply MascaraPerfect your mascara application with a 3-step process:Step 1: Wiggle the wand left to right at the base of lashes. It's the mascara placed near the roots -- not the tips -- that gives the illusion of length. Step 2: Pull the wand up and through lashes, wiggling as you go. The wiggling part is key because it separates lashes. Step 3: In this final step close the eye and place the mascara wand on top of lashes at the base and pull through to remove any clumps. 2.How to Keep Lashes From ClumpingFor some, lash combs are simply too fussy. But for some makeup artists, they're a great invention and keep lashes glob-free and perfectly separated. To use a lash comb, first apply mascara at the lash base, then wiggle the lash comb through to the tips of your lashes. Not into the lash comb? Get rid of clumbs without them by removing excess mascara from the wand. Wipe wand on tissue, this eliminates blobs BEFORE you start.  3.What it Means to "A…

How to dress a larger bust ♡
After having breast augmentation a year ago, I wasn't aware of the trouble I would have with how my clothing fit. With the size I choose  (I ended up a 34DDD) I have to be careful with what I wear.  So here are some tips that I like to keep in mind while shopping for new clothing and while dressing with what I already have.  The goal is to show off your curves without looking boxy or frumpy/baggy. My stats: 40-32-41 5'5 150 :)
Keeping “the girls” up high..  and supported will give you the illusion of more of a waist. You tend to lose your waist when you have a large bust as it naturally sits lower as it takes up more room on your rib cage.  Great bras are a must.  Don’t forget to adjust your straps every time you wear a bra.
Wear low cut shirts.. Not too low, but ones that stop at the top of your cleavage.  Yes, V-necklines are the most minimizing, but really, you can also wear square, scoop and sweetheart necklines well.
Accessorize with a larger necklace... Th…
