I went away for the weekend and wanted to share what was in my travel makeup/toiletries bag! I was not flying, so the products were not for a carry-on or anything like that. I got my travel makeup bag at Target from the Orla Kiely line. I absolutely love it. You can check out the most similar version here, although all of the prints and patterns are a nice mix of feminine/modern/cute. In this clear compartment, I keep spillable items: Toner, moisturizer, deodorant, body spray, hairspray, face wash, contacts, and medicine. In the second compartment, I keep my makeup: Eyeshadow palette, elf under-eye primer, mascara, eyeshadow primer, concealer, concealer #2, powder, blush, bronzer, setting powder, setting spray, BB cream, mini face primer/hightlight, and my eyelash curler.…

I haven’t tried much makeup from The Body Shop, so I thought I’d give this Baked-To-Last Blush a try. When I bought this blush, it was on sale for $9 (50% off) and might still be, so check it out! It’s a baked blush so like most, it is domed. I really like the clear packaging. I would say this is on the pinker end of the coral spectrum. It takes on more of a coral tone when the two colors are swirled together. This is a very highlighting blush so if you like matte blushes, you’ll want to take a pass on this one. I am really happy with this blush and think it could be worn with a variety of eye looks and lip colors!…

Coral is a color that looks great on just about anyone! It’s the go to color for summer, so here are some of my favorite color picks you might want to try! 1. The Body Shop Baked-To-Last Blush in Coral: This blush is super highlighting and gives a pretty flush to the skin. 2. e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Coral Cutie: This lipstick is right on trend with the coral/orange statement lip. 3. Smashbox Lipgloss in Melon Drama: For a gloss, this is super pigmented and has a pretty gold shimmer (it has also been repackaged since I purchased it). 4. eos Lip Balm in Summer Fruit: While the product itself isn’t coral, it does have pretty coral packaging and smells super fruity! 5. O.P.I. Nail…

I recently have revamped my vanity and wanted to share. As an organization fanatic, I absolutely LOVE watching set-up and storage videos on YouTube and reading how other people arrange their makeup on blogs. I just wanted to share some before and afters of my organization and maybe give you some more information on the Muji storage containers, because they are definitely an investment. My vanity is the Micke desk from IKEA. Not all things fit in the 5 drawer such as: bareMinerals foundation The Body Shop mineral foundation Benefit Erase Paste old Benefit boxed blushes (that silvery looking one is a Coralista) The New e.l.f Smudge Pots. I now have the Muji Large 2 Drawer stacked on top of my original Muji 5 drawer. I absolutely love…
