My 5 top makeup products that I cannot live without.

I love putting on a face as much as the next girl, but I would be lying if I said I changed up my makeup routine all the time. Yes, I am guilty of being that basic chick that wears the same eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara for my every day routines. The only thing that changes every once in a while is the length or height of my eyeliner and the shades of lip stick. With the occasional more smokey look in the eyeshadow department every now and then. With that being said, I can rock the sexy going out at night look as well as the all natural im just going to walmart look. Don't get it twisted.
My top 5 can't live without make up products are . . .

1. Duo Concealer by Sheer Cover in Light/Medium 

I recieved this concealer over 3 years ago as a sample in one of my Birch boxes. Ever since this puppy came into my life, it has been a god send. I never ever wear powder or cake my face up with product after product. It clogs up your pores and basically I don't need it. I do have the occasional unicorn horn show up and the scary dark bags under my eyes. Sheer Cover Duo Concealer is exactly for that.

You can purchase it for $24.50 on Amazon, or you can buy it in a kit from the Sheer Cover website for around $30. It is a little on the pricier side, but I kid you not when I say it is totally WORTH IT!

2. Urban Decay Naked Palettes

My absolute favorite is the Urban Decay Naked3.  I've been using Urban Decay since I started getting the hang of Makeup. Age 20 to be exact (I was a late bloomer). I started off with the first Urban Decay Naked Palette and instantly used up Sin (My favorite Urban Decay Shadow color). I've since worked my way up all other 3 Urban Decay palettes including the smokey one. If you want a super pigmented forever lasting (even if you accidentally ((or purposely)) fall asleep with makeup on) eyeshadow Urban Decay Naked Palettes are the way to go.

You can purchase any of these palettes for under $55.

3. Liquid liner by L.A Colors

I have never been that girl to spend loads of cash on makeup products. Especially when you can find an inexpensive brand at your local drugstore that works 2364457374 times better than the more high end super pricey brands. I bought this one at Target. I was actually out looking for the right eye liner and bought about 3 or 4 different brands and this one out won all of them. It is my favorite. Technically not considered waterproof but if you try your hardest not to ruin or smudge it, it will outlast the beach or the pool. Yes I have accidentally fallen asleep with it on and it stays so intact even after a roughs night sleep, that I barely ever have to touch it up and I usually just continue wearing it the following day.  

You can purchase this for under $3.

4. Mascara by Blinc

I also received this product in one of my Birch Boxes when I was a member so long ago. It is by far the product I definitely can never live without. I have tried countless different brands of Mascara and I always come running back to this one. As you can already assume, I have that terrible habit of falling asleep with my makeup on. Eyelashes take forever and a year to grow back so falling asleep with the wrong mascara can be detrimental to your beauty health. Have you ever woken up with the horrible sight of clumped up eyelashes and even with water its impossible to come off, but when it does you take a chunk of lash with it? Well this mascara is almost like a glue that does the complete opposite of ripping your lashes out. Not only does it not clump up your eyelashes but if you ever want to remove it quickly and without pulling any hairs out, just dab on a little water or even steam and it comes off like dried up glue with no eyelashes ripped in its wake. I 100 percent recommend this product!

You can purchase this product anywhere from $15 to $30 depending where you buy it and the size of the mascara.

5. Natural by Nyx Cosmetics

This one is a tricky one because there are so many shades and brands that I  absolutely love. A new favorite is ... by mac. It is a dark shade of purple that brings out all the sex appeal in any woman. But I am more for the neutral darker shades of rose. I actually came across this shade because a friend was wearing it. We were going to our usual Friday Night Hangout and I forgot to bring any lip wear at all. She offered, I put it on and I was lost in Favorite Lipstick heaven forever.  I wear this lipstick for everything. Just leaving the house to go to the bank or a date out on the town with Chaz. You name the place. I'll wear it. This shade of lipstick does not leave my side. EVER.

What are your top 5 favorite makeup products? Have you ever used any of these? Do you have any other reccomendations?

Life Update.

Hi!! Where the hell have I been?! Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. With work and life in general. Can my boyfriend be an excuse? Yes, I will blame this cutie for clouding up my brain with all this lovey dovey stuff lol.

The last time I wrote on here I introduced you to my him. Chaz. Ist't he yummy?! Yesss, Chaz and I are still together (heart eyes emoji) On September 4th it will be 7 months! How wild is that? In such a short amount of time I've fallen in love with an amazing confident driven man and met that person that I would love to spend the rest of forever with. I am so happy and so excited to see where the future will take us. Now that doesn't go without saying that our relationship hasn't been a delicious always perfect box of  Misha Cupcakes (the greatest cupcakes of life). It's more like 2 out of the 12 cupcakes had the frosting smudged but they're still delicious. No relationship is perfect, and hell if it was always easy it would be so boring. But we've stuck it out and it it just keeps getting better and better.

Lets see.. what else is new? Oh I turned 24. We went to Blizzard Beach and Wet and Wild with my sisters and some friends. On the day of, I celebrated at Passions Night Club at the Hard Rock! Wait for that throwback Thursday post soon!

I am now blonde. No longer a brunette. I think I'm keeping it for a while.

My bestfriends baby is going to be 7 months in two days. It's unbelievable. I remember when I went to go see baby Ari at the hospital. I bawled like i was the one that gave birth to her. She was absolutely perfect and gets more and more beautiful by the minute. I still have to do a recap post on her. She is the most beautiful baby in the world and I'm not just being biased because she is my niece. 

On a more serious note, About 2 months ago, On July 12, 2015 a very important person from my past, passed away. My first boyfriend, my first love. He was murdered in a road rage altercation. They are still investigating. He was only 24 years old and had a baby on the way. It had been 9 years since we were together, but we remained friends and he always had a special place in my heart. His name was Josue Galban. I will cherish our relationship and our memories for the rest of my life. Heaven gained a new angel. The picture below was taken in 2007 so long ago.

And now on a much happier note, life is pretty awesome right now. I'm as happy as I have ever been. I've got the man i've always wanted by my side. I started school again. Work is going pretty good right now too. I have friends and family surrounding me with constant love, and everyone I care for is healthy, alive and doing well. Life is good and I plan on keeping it that way.
