It's officially humid season here in Arkansas and I was in need of a foundation change to combat oily skin. Cover FX Powerplay is a total hit! I can go to work all day without feeling like I need touch up my makeup or being self conscious that my face may look oily!! I really feel like using the setting powder makes it go a long way too so don't forget to always apply after your foundation is set. I also love that it's not in a glass bottle, because that is just too risky for me haha :) You can find all of their products at Sephora and I really want to try... everything!!

I'm all about the benefits of purifying my skin! Namaste Skin is packed with rich herbal, botanical and fruit extracts to give your skin a fresh glow and detoxed feel. Once it heats up in Arkansas and gets humid I have to give my skin even more attention to keep it looking nice.
What I love about the Namaste Skin Turmeric Daily Herbal Facial Cleanser is that is takes all my makeup off and leaves my skin feeling so clean but it's so light. It is also perfect for sensitive, acne prone skin, providing essential nutrients with 12 superfruit extracts for radiant skin.
The Super-Fruit Peptide Lift Eye Cream goes a looonnng way! I do suggest if you have sensitive eyes to just leave it on for a little bit instead of over night to start out. It truly does fill in those fine lines that nobody wants!
Now you know I love a good face mask, especially charcoal! Their Purifying Charcoal Facial Masque is so creamy so it doesn't make my skin feel tight after use. Even after just two uses I could see a difference in pore size on my nose yet I wasn't dried out. I like to leave it on for about 15 min while I stretch, watch a little Netflix, or do some calming yoga before crawling in bed. The best way to settle down for the night :)

I'm so excited to be apart of Almay's Class of 2018!! Their new holographic line is so fun and perfect for summer!! I have been wearing Almay since day one of wearing makeup because of my crazy sensitive skin and will be till death do us part.
I absolutely love the new pen eyeliner because it makes application super easy and comes off easily when you wash your face- but doesn't smudge during the day! Win win! The goddess glow lipgloss is also amazing and doesn't leave a sticky residue after you eat or drink your morning coffee. I love the light pink gloss in "Fairy" because it adds just a little color but isn't too sparkly. The clear "Halo" is perfect when you just want to spruce up a little before the gym or running out of the house real quick.
My favorite part about the whole collection is that it adds a good amount of shimmer without looking cheap or you know... not classy ;) Add a little extra and it's even better when amping up your night out look!
All of theCosmic Collection can be found at Ulta and right now they are BOGO 50% off, so don't miss out ladies!! Go be your own kind of pretty!
I went back and forth for about a month on whether or not I wanted bangs. Not the straight across ones, but the chic fringe inspired by Elsa Hosk, Jaci Marie Smith, and Zoe Lazerson. When I went in for my cut, I shocked my stylist and just straight up said I'm changing it up for once, lets do the bangs! Here I am... love them! I'm a big fan of finding the best ways to frame your face, and that includes wearing my hair up but I was tired of it always looking the same. Now though, half-up and ponytails are going to be so fun and I love them with my glasses!! If you're thinking about bangs, just do it! As my hair stylist said "hair is supposed to be fun, that's why it grows back!"
Happy weekend loves!
Fall is almost here!! Friday to be exact! Today I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite items I am excited about for fall other than the leaves changing and slightly cooler temps ;)
My first favorite is the all new Becca Velvet Primer. It comes in a soft little bottle and is so easy to apply. Just shake it up real quick and apply to your whole face. It makes the skin super soft for applying foundation. I have it in the peach and honestly if you aren't feeling like wearing any makeup its a good base to just put on real quick and go. (PS thanks Becca and Influenster for letting me try this out!)
Blush everything! It was big last year and is even bigger this year. I could wear it every single day and not get sick of it. I know I will be wearing this Two by Vince Camuto sweater on repeat this season. I got it at the end of last season but this style here is very similar.
I'm a denim lover, I can't deny it. I have way too many pairs but still find myself shopping for them. These Parker Smith distressed straight jeans are high waisted (the best) and so cute with a sneaker or bootie!
Happy almost Fall!!
I'm beyond picky about eyeliners! Sorry not sorry, partially because I have sensitive skin and eyes so if they aren't good quality I'll wake up with puffy eye lids and have to wear my glasses... not my best look in the morning.
Influenster teamed up with Marc Jacobs Beauty and gifted me two colors to test out! I was nervous that I would be sent crazy colors (because I'm not too confident in wearing bright colors on my eyes with makeup) but I received a beautiful dark blue called Overnight and the perfect shade of brown called Earthquake.
They went on soooo smooth and easy! I also don't have the most steady hand with eyeliner, so that is a huge plus for me haha.
They also sent a cute little book with different ways to style the Highliner that I will be sure to test out and get out of my comfort zone. Playing eyeliner colors is a good way to budge yourself try new things with makeup, simple yet can change your whole look! They come in 25 colors!! A color for anyone :) You can find these at Marc Jacobs, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus! Shop them below for my favorite colors and sets!
