Change is coming. . .

Change is coming. . .

Hello everyone! I want to say my typical “sorry I’ve been gone but. . . ” but I have no excuse. Truth is back in late January I had a miscarriage. I tried using my blog and shopping to ease my pain and get my mind off of things but truth is I hadn’t. Emotionally I hadn’t recovered and I wasn’t in an ok place.

I’ve slowly started to accept it and realize that I still have a wonderful husband and two children that need me.

So with that being said I’d like to announce that my blog will be changing a bit. I will be doing more lifestyle posts. I will never give up on makeup or lose my love for it. But I just don’t have the money to keep up. I believe in writing about what I love and I won’t settle for just any makeup just to produce content.

I will still do makeup related posts. I just want to include more on what my life is like aside from makeup. I just realized most days I don’t wear makeup. My husband’s job has been crazy busy and that leaves me with a 5-year-old and 1-year-old all day. Truth is I have no time to beat my face.

Instead follow me on my journey that revolves around food, family, and long days at the beach!

I’d also like to let you guys know we have a YouTube channel where we vlog. It hasn’t kicked off yet and I’m still adjusting to recording our every day and editing. Also, figuring out what camera works best! But if you’d like to check it out at The Egan’s Vlog

Hopefully this change doesn’t mean we’re parting ways instead it’ll bring us closer. I personally love beauty blogs/channels and lifestyle types. I will try to stay with my Monday Wednesday Friday schedule. But if need be I will change them.

If there’s anything specific you guys want to see or want me to post about just let me know!

I am so excited for this change!

Do any of you have a Youtube channel? Link it pleaese so I can check it out!

Affordable at home Manicure

Affordable at home Manicure

I’ve never done a post like this but this set up is too good not share! Since having the baby I haven’t had the time or heart to go to a nail salon and get a decent manicure. These products are what works best for me. I went through a lot of polishes to get this perfect set up *insert evil laugh!*

dsc_0182

I start off by softening and removing my cuticle with the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover. It’s so easy to use: apply the product for 15 seconds (no longer than a minute), push it up with the cuticle stick, and voila clean cuticle free nails. Then I cut my nails to the desired size. For me it’s short because of the little tike. DSC_0193.png

This next step I need because I have ridges on my nails so I smooth them out a bit just to get rid of them.

dsc_0198

After that I wash my hands to get rid of any dust and moisturize with this Soap And Glory The Righteous Butter. It smells so good and its so thick and buttery it provides a lot of moisture.

 

dsc_0204

dsc_0200dsc_0187

For myself gel nail polishes are my favorite! Both these polishes are affordable. The Sinful Colors retails for $1.98 at Walmart STEAL! The L.A. Colors I also got at Walmart for the same price. Now both these polishes have a top coat that promotes a longer longevity of the polish but. . .dsc_0192

These two are my go to top coats. For a salon finish I recommend the Essie Gel Setter. It’s a bit pricey but so worth it. It gives that thick wet look without having to cure it like regular salon gel polishes. The O.P.I top coat is very basic and doesn’t last as long as the essie but definitely lasts longer than any other top coat.

Now I know nothing beats the feeling of getting pampered and having a hand massage, lol, but this is a quick at home diy manicure. I love it and can vouch my nails look pretty for 2-3 weeks. I bet if I wasn’t a germaphobe with the baby and didn’t have to wash bottles every night it would last even longer.

What are some of your favorite polishes or some diy home pampering??

Life Update!

Life Update!

Hello everyone! After almost a year of being absent I am back with some life updates. If anyone noticed I was gone for a while I promise I have a good excuse! Back in April we found out I was pregnant. I had noticed a change in my mood and how tired I was. I had 0 motivation to blog or even do my makeup. So, I decided to put blogging aside while we got ready for the baby. Another thing is I wasn’t buying makeup (besides my basics/favorites) since we were focusing on just the baby and our 4yr old. I didn’t stop wearing makeup I just stopped talking about it. Here are a few of my favorite pics of my pregnancy! I didn’t do a maternity shoot which I kind of regret now but my bathroom mirror saw many selfies!

Another big thing that happened that took up a lot of our/my time was back in November our dog Marie had puppies. For some reason she rejected them and I stepped in with bottle feeding and all that good stuff.  2 of the pups didn’t make it and with the hormones and time invested in them I didnt have energy at all to do makeup. I spent a lot of that time just focused on the pups and my daughter.

img_5157

But after finding most of them loving homes and giving birth to a beautiful baby boy I AM BACK!! My son was born in January and since then I’ve made some makeup damage so I can’t wait to show you guys and talk once again about the one thing we all have in common. . . our love for makeup! I’ve also played with the idea of not focusing so much on just makeup and possibly changing my style to more of a lifestyle blog with makeup posts also, thoughts??

I am so glad to be back, glad to have a healthy baby boy and daughter, and glad to be doing what I love once again!

Morphe 35N

Morphe 35N

For a while I’ve wanted the Too Faced Peach Palette. Mainly for the peach color. Well, that and to add it to my Too Faced collection. But the more I see it in person the more I feel like I don’t need it. However, there’s a look I keep wanting try and don’t. IMG_2784

IMG_2785

Here’s the look I’ve been itching to do. I hadn’t tried because I didn’t think I had the color I wanted. Then I remembered I had the Morphe 35N palette which had two shades of peach I could totally use.

These palettes I feel got a lot of hype for a while and then it kind of died down. I don’t know why if they’re so pigmented and blend so effortlessly. They’re very inexpensive too. Often retailing for only $22 it’s a steal. Each palette has 35 shadows. This specific palette is all Neutrals and mattes, my favorite! They do however have vibrant shades and shimmers. Morphe also has collaborated with Jaclyn Hill to make the 35O palette which is a palette with all her favorite shades. I actually purchased my palette off of Hautelook at 50% off making the palette that much better.

MORPHE35N
As you can see it has a variety of neutral shades to create any look imaginable!

Theres so many colors I often get stumped on what looks to create. I usually use this palette to create a smoky eye or carry it when we travel. As you can see it isn’t small but it has so many shades you can go simple or glam-ish with one palette! I actually want to get more of these palettes!

Do you have any of these Morphe palettes? Any that are your favorite or you recommend??

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

Ipsy’s May Glam Bag

Ipsy’s May Glam Bag

This month’s Ipsy Glam bag was themed, “Destination Chic”. What I was most excited in the sneak peek was the bag itself! It’s so cute and the color is so vibrant. I also liked it was a snap instead of a zipper. I can see myself throwing some keys, some lipgloss, and an ID and hitting the town with it.

SMASHBOXXRATED

XRATEDWAND

This month I was super stoked for Smashbox’s X-Rated Mascara. This mascara has been getting a lot of attention on social media and as a die-hard lover of Too Faced Better Than Sex I am always on the look out for a new mascara. When it comes to mascara I unfortunately have a hard time trusting drugstore ones because I have had such severe allergic reactions to them that I just avoid them if I can.

Smashbox is back at it again! This triple threat brush isolates and magnifies each lash, while applying its fiber-loaded formula. The result? Sky-high and defined lashes in just one swipe. Bonus: the formula is clump, flake and smudge-proof! – Ipsy website

SLMISSGLAM

SLMISSGLAMBRUSH

Another product I was excited for was this brush by Slmissglam. This is the Small Contour W07 Brush. I love brushes and a new contour brush is always appreciated BUT the packaging FOR ME is a bit “too much”. Most of my brushes are either white or black. It is cruelty free and synthetic so that’s good but it is extremely pricey. I can’t find it alone on the website since they seem to only sell as sets. This is the website if anyone wants to take a peek.

BELLAPIERRE

BELLAPIERRENUDE

Ipsy has been featuring bellapierre a lot and I like most of its products. This is their Gel Liner Pencil in Nude. I love the shade by itself. On the bellapierre website it says this liner is waterproof. It retails for $18 so Ipsy takes the W with this product alone!

These waterproof lip pencils can be used to prep the lips for Mineral Lipstick, or on their own as an all-over lip color. Creating a perfectly defined pout that lasts all day has never been easier, with these creamy liners that glide on effortlessly. Formulated with pure minerals, natural waxes, and antioxidants, these are hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types. -bellapierre website

LOTIONMICELLAIRE

This is yet another product I was excited for. Everyone is talking about micellar water to remove makeup and I’ve been so hesitant to jump on that wagon. Products like this can break me out so I am always extremely careful when it comes to trying them out. This is Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover. 

Benefits

3-in-1 cleanser, toner and make-up remover
Effectively removes all traces of make-up on face, eyes and lips
No-rinse formula
Restores hydrolipidic barrier
Softens the skin

KEY INGREDIENTS

Glycols hydrate the skin
Avène Thermal Spring Water soothes, softens and calms the skin – Avene website

I also received this lip balm but we lost it somewhere between yesterday and today. Haha

Over all I was pleased with this month’s bag. Cant wait to try everything!

What was your favorite from this month’s bag??

(I want to apologize for skipping Monday favorites. We just found out we are expecting and its been a bit crazy around here. Can’t wait to get things in order and keep with my Monday Wednesday Friday posting.)

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

Mini Haul

Mini Haul

I got  a little gift for Mother’s day just some essentials I had run out of. These are favorites I keep repurchasing. Ok, maybe not. I got a few new things.

LAURAGELLERGILDEDHONEY

To start off this mini haul is the much wanted Laura Geller Gilded Honey. I noticed that for me some highlighters don’t work because they make me look chalky. I’ve wanted a gold highlight for such a long time but there’s so many out there it’s hard to pick one! I’ve seen this around so much and the packaging is adorable. It’s very soft and goes on so buttery. This baked highlight comes in 3 more shades: Ballerina, Charming Pink, and Peach Glow. 

Illuminate your natural beauty! This innovative hybrid texture applies like a sheer powder but feels like a cream, creating a translucent wash of luminous color that can be swept all over the face for a lit-from-within glow. A fresh 3-D design captures the look of our favorite Italian dessert, and lasts until the very last application.

Ballerina – a candlelit, rose gold shade
Charming Pink – a soft pink pearl
Gilded Honey – an effervescent caramel honey shade
Peach Glow – a peachy champagne shimmer – Laura Geller Website

ESSENCESAYNOTOREDNESS

Something else new I purchased is this essence Say no to Redness. I have never purchased anything from this brand and just kind of went out on a whim with it. I have been getting these red patches around my nose lately and some pretty inflamed acne that I wanted to give something new a shot to help color correct. With the weather getting so hot I don’t like piling on products so I’m hoping this will eliminate the need of spot correcting with concealer before/after foundation.

MARIOBADESCU

Another new product I bought is this Mario Badescu facial spray. I’ve used this brand thanks to a lot of recommendation from my little sis and so far its never failed me. As you can tell this facial spray has aloe, herbs, and rosewater. It smells so good like roses which eventually goes away. The small bottle was only $5 at Ulta, yay!

A refreshing, hydrating mist to use anywhere anytime. Simply formulated with fragrant Herbal Extracts and Rosewater for a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. Spray your day and night creams for a boost of hydration or use it to set make-up or spray on dry hair throughout the day. Safe for all skin types. Gentle, non-irritating. –Mario Badescu Website

LAURAGELLER

Lastly is the Urban Decay de-slick makeup setting spray for oil control. I love this setting spray because it’s by Skindanavia which I LOVE! There’s also the eyeshadow primer potion in original. I told you guys this is my go to primer and I had recently ran out so I HAD TO pick some up. This does so good with the hot Florida weather it’s definitely a must have.

To the moms out there I hope you had a wonderful day full of makeup and love!

I will be doing a follow-up with all the new items I purchased so stay tune for that!

What’s your favorite Highlight? Anyone else try this Mario Badescu facial spray, thoughts??

Monday faves, it’s BRUSHES!

Monday faves, it’s BRUSHES!

As the title says today’s Monday Faves will be brushes. I will tell you all about my favorite eye brushes. My brush obsession knows no limits!! From eye brushes, to face, even body brushes, I have them all! We did a little belated mothers day shopping and I almost got brushes. KEYWORD: almost, LOL! (I’m going to apologize in advance for not using my Nikon for this post.)

MORPHE

For setting my eye primer or eye concealer I like using a mini angled buffer by Morphe from the 690 – 6 PIECE DELUXE CONTOUR SET. I got this set from Hautelook for 50% off so it was a steal. The bristles are very soft on the lids. I don’t know how it would blend but just for setting it does amazing.

LUXIESONIAKASHUK

I have several brushes I like for my crease. My ultimate favorite ‘I freak out’ when I lose it is the #109 By Sonia Kashuk. At $5.99 it’s a great brush. Blends seamlessly, is very soft on the lids, and has minimal shedding. Another crease favorite is Luxie’s #205 Tapered Blending Brush. I used to like this brush for my outer corner until I started using it’s sister brush. So one day when my Sonia Kashuk was dirty I picked up this 205 and have never looked back. It’s become one of my must haves, love it forever, “holy grail” blending brush.

UDSIGMA

Ok, so I’m going to be completely honest with you guys; I look up everything I post. I don’t like giving you guys the wrong info. Sooooo in doing just that I found out Urban Decay actually sells the palette brushes individually. HOW DID I NOT KNOW?!? Lol, anyway, I love this brush from my Naked 2 palette to pack on shadow on the lid. If thats dirty my Sigma E55 from the Color Pop Collection does amazing.

ELFBRUSH

I enjoy little gems in the rough and this e.l.f. crease brush is just that. At only a $1 I think a lot of people look past it. I don’t use it as the name suggests but that’s the beauty of makeup, anything goes. I use this inexpensive brush to pack on color in my outer corner. I then blend that out with another brush. Works amazing! The bristles are a bit stiff that’s why I personally don’t use it for the crease but thats just MY opinion.

LUXIE BRUSHES

I like smoking out my bottom lashes with Luxie’s #221 Flat Definer and #231 Small Tapered Blending brush. All these Luxie eye brushes came in a set together I purchased through Ipsy for $25! Winning!

DETAIL SHADOW BRUSH

Last but not least is this cute, random, black brush I like for applying inner corner highlight. This brush came from the very first set of brushes I ever purchased and I cannot remember the name of it. If I had to compare it to another brush I’d say it performs just like Real Techniques accent brush: designed for precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting, and smudging from the Starter Set .

I cannot have enough brushes and there’s a few sets out there that I have my eyes on. I try to find brushes that are vegan. Sadly sometimes I don’t do my research and I have purchased brushes that are from ‘animal hair’.

What are some of your favorite eye brushes? Any you recommend? Also, would anyone like to see my little Mother’s day haul? lol
