Lovers & Friends


So, unless you have been hiding under a rock… you probably know that V-day is right around the corner.

Yes. Valentines day may be a cheesy holiday created by greeting card & candy companies to rake in the dough, but whateves. Who cares? It’s an excuse to be girly, wear pink, eat chocolate, and give and get some presies. I’m in.

If you know me but AT ALL you know I may or may not have a little major shopping addiction. This extends far beyond shopping for myself. I also loooove buying gifts. It’s a way to feed my addiction and not feel quite so guilty as I am not on the receiving end.

That being said… here are some of my fav finds for your guy or gal pals for the big V.

Must-Have-Mondays: The Eyes Have It.

“The most beautiful makeup on a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
― Yves Saint-Laurent

Today’s Must-Have item is truly a Must-Have! This one little gem may actually change your life {or at least the way you feel about your makeup}. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring 3 things, this would probably absolutely be one of them. I’m talking about MAC’s paint pot in Painterly. Now don’t get me wrong, I love all of the paint pots… their consistency, workability, and staying power are unparalleled, but Painterly takes the cake. Why you ask? This one product will honestly increase the performance of so many of your other products it’s not even funny. It is the perfect eyeshadow base {your shadow will honestly stay put all day}, it brightens the entire eye area to make you look alive {I use it on my upper lids, lower lids, and especially the epicanthic fold [[that’s fancy talk for the inner corner of your eye]] }. I also use it as an occasional concealer when I need to cover something up and make sure it stays hidden all day {it’s as if it creates some sort of cloak of invisibility}. In short, this is one product every girl must have in their beauty bags at all times… I promise, you’ll thank me later!
