hello hello!


First and foremost, I want to wish everyone a very happy new year AND say thank you to all those who have reminded me to update my blog! Thank you for being so loyal even if I update my blog like once a year, haha! Life got a little crazy ever since I started working and I haven't quite figured out how to balance work and life just yet. I literally feel like I have no time to do anything. I come home from work, lounge around for a bit and then worry about sleep. I absolutely do not compromise my sleep, which means this grandma right here goes to bed by 10 pm every night. I need my full 8 hours of sleep to function at work the next morning. And then...the weekend comes. I wait all week for the weekend and the weekend literally flies by! Sad sad sad life story.

Moving on...For the sake of this new year, I figured I'd share my 2014 beauty favs. with y'all. I have used these products non-stop this past year! I'm pretty sure the hubs is happy because I haven't been buying makeup...not much at least! Listed below are all the products that I have been loyal to for the year of 2014 and I won't be surprised if some of these products make it to my 2015 Beauty Favs. ;)


1. Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation- This is my holy grail foundation! I have tried many many many different foundations but this foundation is by far my favorite. It's $37- IMO, worth every penny!

2. MAC lipstick in Taupe- This is a staple in my daily makeup routine. I own about a million lipsticks but somehow I always end up with Taupe on my lips almost every. single. day. It's perfect for my olive skin tone!

3. Stila All Day Liquid Eyeliner- I honestly don't really shop around for eye liners all that much. I blindly picked this one up one fine afternoon while shopping at Sephora and it worked. And when something works for you, you hold on to it for the rest of your life. The end.

4. Benefit they're REAL Mascara- I LOVE this mascara. I love what it does and I love how it makes my lashes look. However, I feel like it's a hassle to get it off my lashes. I have to use a ton of eye makeup remover and wash my eyes multiple times to get it off my lashes. Sometimes even after all the struggle I go through trying to take if off my lashes, I still somehow end up waking up looking like a raccoon. 

5. Lorac Pro Palette- I first bought this palette about 2 years ago and returned it within two days. I decided to give it a second try and now I can't stop using it! My love for the first Lorac Pro palette forced me to buy the Lorac Pro 2 palette...I would say the first one is still my favorite! It's great for any and all skin tones! If you don't own this palette, all I can say is run out and grab one right now. You need it in your life!

6. Mac Blush in Coppertone- Y'all, I have been using this blush for about 5 years now and it NEVER FAILS!

I hope you all are having a great week! I'm just happy that Friday is right around the corner ;)


 
p.s. I just came back from an amazing two week trip to Europe! I've only been back about a week and y'all, I'm having serious withdrawals :(
