Hey guys! I haven't been in the mood to experiment with different makeup looks so I've been doing this look every day for about a month now and I don't see myself stopping. It's very simple and does not require and thought, which is perfect if you're a student like me or you have really early mornings.

Base: First, I used my Etude House Bright Fit Precious Mineral BB Cream in W13 all over my face. This BB cream is great for winter or if you have dry skin and it just perks up your face because it has a dewy finish. Then, I move onto using a sample of the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer in Neutral Medium that I got in my most recent Ipsy bag. You literally need half a pea size for both eyes because it's sooo pigmented. For blemishes, I love the MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC15. Lastly, I set everything with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

Brows: I went in with my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde to fill in my brows and cleaned up the edges with the MAC concealer with a concealer brush. My brows were not working with me today so they weren't at their best. But, what can you do? They have minds of their own.

Eyes: I have been obsessed with gold eyeshadow ever since I saw a photo of Park Sora rocking a golden-bronze eye look. First, the gold shadow from the Maybelline The Nudes Palette goes all over the lid and the shimmery bronze-brown blended lightly into the crease. I finished off the eyeshadow with the Estee Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow in Tea Biscuit in the inner corner and brow bone. For my lashes, I used the Covergirl Lash Blast Volume mascara. Since I've been too lazy to bother with eyeliner, I do a couple coats of mascara to make my lashes look fuller.

Cheeks: I contoured lightly with the Benefit Hoola Bronzer and used Milani Luminoso for blush. I know it's not a fall/winter color but it's so pretty that I don't care. Plus, I think it goes well with the gold and bronze eyes.

Lips: I outlined my lips with Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in Eastend Snob and then topped it off with a sample of the Starlooks lip gloss in Guilty Pleasure.

There you guys have it! Let me know if you like these kinds of posts. I tried something different this time around. And tell me what you do for an everyday makeup look! See you next time! XD

Hey guys! My skin has been so angry lately because it snowed where I live! We're already below freezing temperatures and it's not even Thanksgiving yet. Since it's colder, I got some new skincare items to share with you, and they're from the drugstore! So you won't have to break the bank this winter.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask: I've spoken about this mask before, but I still really like it. It's one of those masks that is a bright green color like you see in the movies. If you're looking for a clay mask that is going to draw out dirt and impurities, then go for this. I find that this mask makes my pores smaller and my skin smoother, but it is the harshest one out of these three masks. Just make sure you use a good moisturizer after so you wont dry out your skin.
Freeman Cucumber Peel-Off Mask: This is a fun one because this mask come out a gel, but after time, the tackiness goes away and you can literally peel it off of your face. There's a weird satisfaction that comes along with peeling off your face. This mask is supposed to get rid of impurities without drying it out, and I would have to agree with that. It's more gentle than the Queen Helene mask but it's not as effective.
Freeman Golden Grain Brightening Mask: If you're into sheet masks, then I would suggest this for you. In the US, sheet masks are pretty expensive, like $3 a pop, but this mask will give you the effect of a sheet mask without the sheet. This is supposed to moisturize and brighten, but I think need to use it more than once a week for the full effect. Yes, it does brighten a tiny bit in one use, but continuous use would optimize the brightening properties. 

There you go guys! Those are the face masks I've been using in rotation for the winter time. And all of them are not tested on animals! So no bunnies were harmed! Let me know what your HG skincare products for winter are. See you next time! XD

Hey guys! I have not bought anything for myself in almost a month and a half. That means no lipsticks, no clothes, and not even those random snacks that you just pick up. I have a ton of birthdays in the months of September and October so I've been spending my money of gifts for other people. And now that Christmas is just around the corner, it's going to be a while before I can go back to my regular shopping habits, haha.

My mission was to find some new, fun tops to include in my rotation. I've been wanting to get some things from Brandy Melville and Pacsun carries a few of their clothing items. This Cat Muscle Tee caught my eye because it's black, I can wear it many ways, and I have a black cat. Being the proud kitty mommy I am, I had to get it. Another item I've been wanting is a chunky gold chain, but I didn't want to spend a ton of money on one since I was still iffy on how I could wear it. This one was under $7 from H&M. And now for the beauty products! My HG dry shampoo is Batiste in the Blonde shade, I needed a new one, so I got one. That's it, what more can I say? Next, I went to Ulta and I went in there to get more NYX Butter Glosses but I walked out with the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde and the Freeman Golden Grain Brightening Mask. I didn't even get any Butter Glosses. That's what Ulta does to me. And lastly, I was lusting after red lip glosses. Why? I don't know. Sometimes I get a random thought and think, that would be delightful! And I can't get it out of my mind until I get it. It's usually something stupid like cucumbers or red lip gloss. Anyway, I bought one of the Maybelline Color Elixirs and I really liked it and wanted more shades. So I killed two birds with one stone and got the shade Signature Scarlet.

What have you picked up recently? See you next time! XD
