Moving Makeup...

Hi guys! Hope your summer is going well! Mine has been quite busy with the new house being finished having both kiddos home, swimming lessons, play dates, work...and sorting through and packing every single thing in my house! Oh, so painful, but kind of  refreshing to be purging  the stuff we just don't need anymore.

Here's a little video update on some of the beauty junk that I've held on to for waaaay too long...I just couldn't bear letting it go since I loved it so much! Plus if you watch until the end (it's not that long, don't worry!) you'll get to meet my my beagle baby, Sophie Mae!


Hope you all have a great week!
Xoxo,
Lindsay

Unmelted Makeup!

Me, after a long, sweaty day!

I have to admit, I'm pretty pleased with my makeup after an entire 80 degree day...this morning I did a full face since I was glamming up for work!

I started with NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat foundation in 07 Warm Beige, which I applied with my Sigma F82 Round Top Kabuki brush. Then I applied some NYX cream concealer in Porcelain under my eye area to brighten things up and blended that out with the Sigma P80 Precision Flat brush. I contoured with MAC Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige, and highlighted with their Mineralized Skinfinish in Lightscapade. Awesome, awesome, awesome products!

For my eyes, I used all MAC shadows...Vanilla, Brule, Wedge, Soft Brown and Mulch. I filled in my brows with Omega. I have to say I've been afraid of wearing "boring browns" on my eyes...then I found these colors! Love and love!

I finished my cheeks with a warm coral blush from my NYX Haute Jersey palette and that was that! I didn't touch anything on my face all day, sweated through grocery shopping, (just kidding, I only dripped through the sweltering parking lot!), and I have to tell you I still feel pretty perfect, makeup-wise!

How are you faring with this heat wave? Any tips or tricks you wanna share? Drop me a line! 
Cheers to stay-put makeup!

New Goodies!

I am pretty excited about my new MAC order...I'm awaiting the arrival of said package any day now! It isn't a large order, just filling out my collection a bit, but I can't wait to try some of the products!

I am a relative newbie when it comes to MAC...the nearest store location is two and a half hours away, a trip I have yet to make since I can order online. This is only my second MAC purchase!

I had stopped obsessively buying new makeup awhile ago and really started using my collection over the last year. I have found some long-lost loves and some renewed faves, as well as realizing that lipsticks just can't stay around for eight or nine years and still be alright! Ewwwww!

So I recently splurged on some Sigma brushes, some nice basics from NYX and now, a sweet little order from MAC. And really what I'm most excited about is moving my new goodies into my new home, which should be within the next few weeks! You can't move old nasties into new niceys!

Cheers to new goodies!
