FOTD: Pride




I dyed my hair last night! (Finally) I tried Artic Fox Aquamarine for the first time, and I'm loving it so far. It was easier to use than what I'm used to. As long as it doesn't fade super quickly, it's a winner. I'm always really excited to do my makeup with freshly washed hair so, I thought it was the perfect time for rainbow smokey eyes. Happy Pride!

Current Favorites

I am not a creature of habit when it comes to makeup. I use different colors daily, and so it's hard to gather enough things that are truly favorites on a monthly basis. However, over the last few months, I've scrounged up some products I've really been using and enjoying on a regular basis. 


I'll start with the Buxom Show Some Skin Foundation in Tickle The Ivory. I bought this to mix with my Jane Iredale BB Cream in BB1, because it can tend to be a little pink on me. It works beautifully for mixing, but I started using it on it's own, and I love it. It's got a light coverage that is build-able to medium and sits on the skin beautifully without feeling heavy. The tone of this foundation is more on the yellow side, which is ideal for me, and it's one of the lightest foundations I've ever been able to find in store. 

I started having problems with any product sitting nicely on my skin several weeks ago. I'm not sure if stress was just wreaking havoc on my skin or if it was the weather change, but my skin texture was much like that of a reptile. Foundation does not look good on top of reptile skin. Out of pure desperation, I bought the Urban Decay Optical Illusion Primer Potion, and I have not been disappointed. It fills in pores, blurs imperfection, and makes a great base for foundation to sit on. It doesn't feel heavy at all, which is so important for me since I live in Alabama. (AKA 7th Circle of Hell) 

I've been very much back into wearing false lashes lately, and the Kiss Blooming Lashes in Camellias have been my favorite. They're a little more on the natural side and work really well with more minimal looks as well as dramatic looks. 

On days that I don't have time to do more than winged liner and mascara, I still like to have a pop of color to my eye makeup, and the Colourpop creme gel colour in Prance has been my favorite. It also looks stunning with full on eye looks, and it lasts really well in the waterline. The color is just stunning. I have had mine for quite a while now, and the product is still creamy. Very good bang for your buck.

I hope that you enjoyed that and/found it helpful!

Rolling Project Pan


Since I promote for two indie brands and generally am just a fickle person, I have always found it really hard to stick to project pans. However, I have seen on Instagram where people are doing these rolling projects, and I think I can be successful at something like this. I have accepted that I will always have an abundance of loose eyeshadows and loose and pressed powders of various kinds, but I do tend to get stressed out about cream and liquid products sitting in my collection as they do go bad pretty quickly. I chose the products pictured above, because I am fairly confident that I will be able to use them and then move on to another product of a similar kind. I kept it down to four products so that I don't overwhelm myself and set myself up for failure and since I also have to still be able to use other products in order to promote for Notoriously Morbid and Brija. I'm not entirely sure how I want to do updates, but I am thinking I will just update when the product is gone and show what I am replacing it with.
