MAKEUP ROUTINE | My Go-To “I Tried” Look Part 2

DSC01667

While I like being adventurous with my makeup once in a while, I’m a lazy girl, as I’ve already said a bunch of times, so most of the time I just default to a variation of the same look. In this post, I’ll be sharing my usual look for when I want to look like I actually tried – this would most likely be for when I know I’ll be in pictures, or for a nicer dinner/outing.

While I was writing this, I tried to include as many different products as I could to show that the same general look can be achieved with a variety of products 🙂 Because of this, the post ended up being extremely long, so I decided I’d split it into two posts. This post will focus on the eyes and lips, and if you missed the first part, click here.

HAUL + Shopping Tips | Glossier

IMG_8239

As I said in my previous post, 2017 really was the year of Glossier. There were so many new releases that I almost couldn’t keep up! Each release was exciting, but I wanted to hold off on getting anything until I used up some of my existing inventory of beauty products. A couple of months ago, I was finally at a point where I wouldn’t feel like I wasn’t hoarding if I purchased new things, so I went ahead and hauled a whole bunch of stuff.

Keep reading to see what I got! I also included a few tips for shopping on Glossier’s site 🙂

ANTI-HAUL | Winter 2017

With all the temptation and spending that comes with the holiday season, I thought it’d be nice to balance my Sephora haul (and other upcoming hauls…) with an anti-haul.

Although I’ve gotten a lot better about making more informed, thought-out purchases in the last couple of years, this anti-haul will also be a good reminder to myself that money not spent is better than money spent on a product I wouldn’t otherwise use or want to try.

Before I begin with the anti-haul, I have to admit that I went ahead and purchased the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial (1.69 oz, $80). I was partially motivated by maintaining my Rouge status, but mainly, it seems like a universally loved product, and is unique enough that I probably wouldn’t find a dupe easily, if at all. I’m excited to try it and share my thoughts on it with you 🙂

HAUL + Shopping Tips | Sephora VIB Sale, Winter 2017

I’ve taken a couple of weeks off posting here, but the Sephora VIB sale, kicking off today, was good motivation for me to end my break and share with you guys what I’d hauled last week when the sale was open only to Rouge members.

I purchased five items and redeemed two point perks this time, though I’m already considering whether I should purchase more before the sale ends…
