It will either be my clumps or my expectations...

FOTD: Soft Neutral Gold!

Hey beauties!!!
I've been getting my house ready for the holidays by adding tons of decor and frilly things. I feel when I do this, it makes it that much more special when the holidays do arrive. Since this is my daughters second Christmas, I am pulling out all the stops to make sure she is so excited for Santa!
Yay! I love the Holidays!

If any of you go to local crafts shows, what do you end up getting? 
I am planning on going to a few this year (I go every year) and I usually pick up a personalized Holiday ornament for my family. Its a tradition my mom started by getting us all one each year. She still has all of my ornaments, which I have yet to get from her, But I can't wait to put them up!
I also love going to Julian and getting apple pie and hot chocolate by the cup. Hopefully we will make it up there this year. Last year, we didn't make the time. 
I also have my Mother-in-law coming in, for a few days this month. Olivia's Birthday at the end of the month and she wanted to come and visit. I think I will keeping it low key this year, seeing as her birthday is on Thanksgiving day.

October Favorites + My halloween!!

I have gotten alot of questions on everday make-up that I use and some of my favorites.
Many of the items that I have included, I have been using for 6 months or more consecutively. 
Some are newer "loves" that I would recommend purchasing.
I have reviews for alot of these products, just follow the links. 

Mac Face & Body:
When I first heard about this, I mainly wanted to try it out because it was labeled for face AND body. Meaning you could wear it on blemishes or scars on your body and it wouldn't look too fake and make-up looking and a plus was that it is water resistant. I was really sold when I found out that it not only works for the body, but it was a great foundation also, that could be layered for the desired coverage. Let me not forget to mention that it comes in a 4oz bottle as compared to most regularly sized foundation bottles that come with only 1oz of product. 
You can either see this as a negative or minus, being that you have a lot of product, so you must use it pretty regulalry, before it starts to expire. 
Most likely I will be doing a full review on this one, but I wanted to state that this is a great purchase. You can build your coverage, its a dewy formula, its breathable, comes in a variety of different shades (olive toned ladies, Im talking to you) and most importantly, you don't look or feel like a cakeface when you wear it. 

CoverGirl & Olay Simply ageless Corrector:
The fact that I already did a review on it HERE, and I still use it regularly enough that its a staple in my make-up bag, means alot;
That I didn't get tired of it, nothing compares in my book, its reasonably priced, its perfect for my skin tone, and its small and travel friendly.

 Non-creasing, perfect shade for me, hides my bags, and is blendable. 
Enough said.
I have a full review on this and its sister product, the concealer, HERE.

Mario Badescu Facial spray:
I was introduced to this when a SA at Ulta raved about it claiming it was better than MAC Fix+. 
The fact that she STILL worked for MAC and claims that this was a better bargain and product, had me intrigued. I went home and googled it and lo and behold, take a look at Makeupalleys reviews on it here.
It has a 4.5 rating out of 72 people. Thats pretty darn awesome!
I spray two pumps before my foundation and concealer routine to gently moisturize the skin and again after I apply my contour and blush. This spray is designed with all skin tones in mind but be careful, if you spray to much and have a oily complexion. It will look overly dewy. 
I own the Urban Decay Dew me and the e.l.f studio makeup mist & set spray and in my book, this facial spray is better than both. The elf spray I feel really does nothing and the dew me works, however its so dang expensive.  The Mario Badescu spray works just as well and is a whole lot cheaper. If you have a chance to buy it, do it! You won't be disappointed!
