*Makup Declutter Eyeshadow*

I knew this would be the hardest part, and it was. Making my first sale of the products that I am selling, today helped me a lot though sense that money is going to a makeup order!

* I am not showing all the shadows I have remaining- or the ones I am starting with, because I have a few series planned, and I don’t want to spoil anything! Remember, my decluttering process is growing and I will be showing more shadows and other items that I will be passing in on, as they are decided on.*

Single Shadows

mds

Lately I have had this strange need to buy single shadows. It was really hard to get rid of any, and the ones that I am passing along, I had to force myself to do. Let’s begin!

Wet n’ Wild “cheeky”- This pink is super powdery and way more trouble than it is worth. I am really liking shades of pink lately, but I have better shadows that are similar. Going to a family member

L’oreal “Green Promenade”- I really like this shadow line. I actually have kept a lot that I want to find cruelty free dupes of before I pass along. This one just isn’t pigmented, so I am going to let my family pick through this (along with a ton of other makeup) next weekend!

L’oreal “Argentic”- This is another shade that just isn’t pigmented. I am also passing this along to family. I have swatched it quite a bit.

Cover Girl “Tapestry taupe”, “Mink”, and “Brown Smoulder”- I am passing these all along for the same reason. I have these exact shades, but 1000 times better in cruelty free form. I have messed with these quite a bit, so I am going to give these to family and not sell. It was a bit hard to pass these along, because I do like them, but there is no sense in keeping a worse version of something I own.

Palettes:

Palettes weren’t as hard to move away from because I have SO many. Let’s just get into the ones I am passing along and where they are going.

NYC Lovatics BY Demi- I used this once, in a post. It is nice for the price, but I have so much like it. It also is not cruelty free, so might as well pass it along. I am going to sanitize and sell this item!

NYX Sex Bomb- I have never used this item and just don’t see myself reaching for it. I am going to sell it.

CoverGirl Notice Me Nudes- I bought this b/c of Tati and it just wasn’t as great as she made it seem. Not much pigmentation. Going to a family member sense I did use it quite a bit.

Revlon Photo Ready “Metropolitan” – I have only swatched this item, and I know my mom really likes it. She has used it. I am going to give it to her!

Wet n’ Wild Poster Child- I have played with this some, but I am never going to use this. I am just going to let it go to a family member before I change my mind!

Sonia Kashuk Eyes on Textured Nudes- I love the matte and shimmer version of this palette, but this one just doesn’t have the same pay off. I am going to also pass this on to my mom, she has been wanting shadows with more shimmer, maybe she can make use of this.

Wet n Wild I’m Getting Sun Burnt- This trio is really messy and the shadows are too soft. The super dark brown broke and has just mixed with the other shades. I am going to throw this one away.

Rimmel Afternoon Tea-This has like no pigmentation. I don’t even want to give it to someone else because it just sucks. Trash.

Hope you enjoyed this declutter! What shadows should I pick up? What types of looks do you want to see??

*Makeup Declutter* Liquid/Gel Liners

mdl

I am actually starting to like decluttering. I am not AS anxious as I was at first, and deciding to go cruelty free really has helped me a lot. ALSO I want to announce that sense Josiah and I have moved into a new apartment, we finally got to get Pocket dogs! Rats, we got rats. I use to have rats and loved them to death. I decided too again have rats. I will have a post about them coming soon! Just wanted to share that little tidbit because I am so excited and in love with my 3 little pocket dogs. ❤

Now, on to the declutter. Continue reading “*Makeup Declutter* Liquid/Gel Liners”

My Favorite Lazy Girl Hair Hack + Bonus Lazy FOTD

Most of the time I hate messing with my hair. It just takes too much time and ends up greasy anyway. So, resulting from that is the following hair hack that I use almost everyday. There are a ton of pictures on my blog with my hair in this hack, and it really has helped the lazy girl in me to become even more lazy. Which isn’t always bad right?

I grab the top layers of my hair and put them in a high pony tail, leaving the bottom layer down, except for its front pieces. I also pull these up into the pony tail to make it look more blended. The results in your hair looking longer, and it takes like 2 seconds, which is always great!

Now for the bonus lazy FOTD:

lazyfotd

My goal on days like this is to use as little product as possible.

For my foundation I used the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.

My Concealer is the Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer

My Powder is the Maybelline Fit Me Pressed powder in translucent.

I used the Wet n Wild Brow pencil for brunettes and set them with vaseline

For my blush, highlight, bronzer, and eye shadow I used the Physians Formula  Warm Nude shimmer brick thing. ( Inside it it says nude glam)

I used a new mascara for the 1st time for this look Lash Princess False Lash Effect by Essence. ( review coming soon)

On my lips is the NYX High Voltage lipstick in Flutter kiss

It took me like 10 mins total to get ready. If you are wondering why I decided to be so lazy today, it is because I am going to be driving for a few hours, leaving at 9pm. My goal was to be comfortable, but not look like a complete mess when I arrive at my destination. ( I wrote this on a different  day than it is posted, because I at least made an attempt to plan ahead!)

What are your favorite hair hacks? What are your favorite makeup products to use on a lazy makeup day? I am dying to find out!

What Make-Up is Travaling with Me? + The Make-Up Bags I Use to Travel

I want to start by talking about the bag itself! If you have read my first few post than you will remember this bag. It is a NYX make-up bag that I got with a set of NYX make-up at Ulta. This is my favorite bag to travel with because it’s clear so I can see all my products easier, and it is plastic which makes it much easier to clean!

The Bag:

I just carry my essentials in an old Too Faced bag, I got in with a kit in the summer of 2014. It is nicely made, roomy, and really cute. It reminds me of something nautical- which I love. Continue reading “What’s in my everyday, stays in my purse, makeup bag?”
