Cheap Thrills, Big Deals: Sonia Kashuk brush

Makeup artists always say good tools and bad makeup outweigh bad tools and good makeup any day. Well, big price tags usually come with the good tools but this little Sophia Kashuk brush is an exception. Gel eyeliners are usually my go-to during the summer because pencil can usually get a little messy with all the heat. I needed a good brush to help make gel eyeliner easier and quicker for me!  I give this brush a 5 out of 5 because the angle lets me get close to my lashline without breaking my wrist to do it.

The point tip lets me apply gel liner without bending my wrist backwards. It also allows me to kind of draw along my lash line with a similar technique to a felt tip liquid liner. Let me know you favorite budget brush find!!

Updated WishList!!

This weekend I was able to cross some thing off my Wishlist!! With that being said I am revealing those products tomorrow and adding a few more to the list to replace them. The new items will be more fashion related, I actually got the idea from this Fashion Bomb Daily article. I love the website and I feel like all the items on the list are perfect for a college student transitioning into the "real world" especially since I'm a business major.
Stay tuned for the beauty items I purchased over the weekend and for my very adventurous fashion haul!

Your First MAC quad

When starting to branch out from drugstore brand makeup, the brand most people turn to is MAC Cosmetics. With a wide selection of color, formulas and the affordability of it all, it's easy to see why people chose MAC. MAC's eyeshadows are some of their most popular products. I remember when I finally decided that I wanted to try MAC products, what better way than with an eyeshadow quad.

FOTN: Date Night using Heavenly Creatures

So my boyfriend and I decided to go out to dinner on Saturday for date night. I thought it would be the perfect time to use my new products from the Heavenly Creatures collection. A light handed is highly suggested because both Center of the Universe and Stratus are very pigmented. A duo fiber or fan brush would be the best tools to distribute color without having chunks left on your face. The versatility of these products makes them worth their price tag! I will list all products used at the bottom.
