Today’s face of the day is perfect for summer. I wore this look out for an early dinner and drinks with my husband. For this look, I pulled out some old faves and mixed them with some new products. To see what I used, keep reading!
Sometimes if you read a lot of beauty blogs or watch a lot of beauty videos on YouTube, you may think that you have to spend a lot of money on makeup. That’s definitely not the case!

What are some of your favorite products under $10?
I just received the few items that I ordered from MAC’s new collection, Tropical Taboo. Every summer they come out with a mineralized collection full of eyeshadows, blushes, and mineralized skinfinishes. This year they also added some lipsticks, gloss, and lip pencils. Keep reading to see what items I purchased and my initial thoughts on them.
Quite a few of you told me you would like to see more makeup tutorials from me, but they take a long time to prepare for and film, so I decided to throw some of these Face of the Day posts in the mix. This way, you can see all the products I’m using, you just won’t actually see them in action. It also gives me a chance to express my thoughts on certain products. Let me know what you think of these types of posts. Keep reading for pictures and products!
Guess what I broke down and got! Yep, the new NARS blush palettes that are apart of the Pierre Hardy collection!
A couple of weeks ago, I did a post on Essie’s First Timer nail polish from their Resort Collection. Today’s nails are also from that same collection, but this one is called In the Cab-ana. Excuse my poor paint job, I was rushing. Poor paint job aside, isn’t this a gorgeous color! It is like a cross between aqua and turquoise blue. I don’t have any other colors like this in my collection. This shade makes me want to lie out on a tropical island with my hubby, a good book, and a Mai-Tai. (Isn’t that what summer’s all about?) This shade also lasted about 3 work days on me without chipping (which for me is saying a lot).
What’s nail polish reminds you of summer?
E.L.F. products can be extremely hit or miss for me, especially their eyeshadows. If you have ever purchased one of their 100 pan eyeshadow palettes, then I’m sure you know what I mean. Recently, they released these new baked eyeshadows and blushes. I saw the shadows in Target, so I decided to pick up 2 to try out. Keep reading for my thoughts on them!
