Hey guys! Happy Sunday! I know it has been a few weeks since I have done a behind the food post, and I promise I will be continuing them as I have time in weeks to come!
This week I am addressing a very fun topic for me, one that I have had a few emails on… makeup!
I am NOT a girly girl… well, maybe a little. I don’t obsess over looking my best, but I do love hair and makeup. I could spend hours in Sephora (and I have!) looking at new products!! I love experimenting, and at one point during high school I seriously considered becoming a makeup artist!
Nowadays, I don’t have as much time to play around, unless it’s for my devil costume at halloween, where smoky eyes…
and red lips…
are a must!
But usually I go for a more natural look.

Because I wear glasses most all of the time, I like to make sure my whole face looks fresh and clean, but put the focus on my peepers because my glasses tend to take the focus off of my big brown eyes.
So for daytime, I usually just use an organic moisturizer (pic) and swipe my face with a light mineral powder to even out my skintone.
I also add an extra coat of mascara, black eyeliner instead of brown- on the top and sometimes inner bottom, and I do a gold or smoky eye.
For AMAZING eyeshadows, there is nothing like MAC.
I love experimenting with color, especially blues, greens and purples. Nothing too extravagant, but never underestimate the power of a fine line of color right around the rim of your eyes… it will make your whole face POP!
Speaking of “POP” I have a couple more favorite products to share with you all.
First, if you want to take your look up one notch… add some of Benefit’s High Beam just under your cheekbones, or right under the outer corner of your eyebrows.
It is an amazing hilighter!
Do your lips get chapped in the winter? I know mine do. Tarte’s delicious tasting, and miracle balm FRXtion, is the perfect product.
One side is a sugar-based exfoliant, and one side is a smoothing balm.
Last but not least, just a few of my favorite scents…
