What’s In My Makeup Bag

I prefer a natural makeup look and I’ve recently added a few new products to my makeup bag that have quickly become my favorites!  I received a very, very small sample of the Chanel Skin Perfecting Makeup and somehow I made it last for 3 days! It is worth every single penny!

NARS: Blush & Bronzer Duo,  MAC Concealer, MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup,  Laura Mercier Translucent Powder


Maybeline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara in Blackest Black is my all time favorite. I’ve tried more expensive brands and haven’t found one that I like better.

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Ruby Is a great fall color that looks great with anything. I love this lip pencil that goes on like lipstick, needs no sharpener, and looks like lip gloss!


MAC Eyeshadow in Saddle, Carbon, and Orb

I use Carbon and Copperplate as eyeliner also. Here are a few of my other favorite eyeshadows:


MAC Prolongwear Fluidline in Blacktrack is my go to eyeliner at night!

Best Tan In A Bottle Ever!

Looking back on my younger years, I cringe inside a little. I’m sure many of you do too. Everyone looks better sun kissed. Now I slather on sunscreen & have even bought (but not yet used) a long sleeve rashgaurd.

I’ve tried many different spray tanning machines and self-tan lotions but feel like my skin always looks a little “Donald Tump” orange.  The only sunless tan I’d found that really looked like a real tan was airbrush custom tanning. This option is just too pricey for my budget on a regular basis.

After reading a ton of reviews, I decided to try St. Tropez Gradual in Shower Tanning Lotion. I purchased the Golden Glow Medium but they also carry a lighter version for fair skin types.

St. Tropez

I’ve been using it in the shower everyday for the last week and am 100% happy! Not only does my skin have a natural tan color, I don’t smell like tanning lotion, and I don’t have a single streak of oddly tanned skin.

The only drawback for some is that you have to wait 3 minutes before rinsing it off your skin.  This is not a problem for me, I simply put a towel outside my shower to step on to dry the bottom of my feet and then use a small amount of exfoliating scrub on my palms and rub it in between my fingers and the inside of my wrists and then rinse the inside of my hands in the sink. Then I brush my teeth. That’s 3 minutes! I jump back in the shower rinse & then dry off. That’s it!!!

After a week using the product, my skin looks like this

Check out St. Tropez ‘In Shower Tanning Lotion Golden Glow Medium’. It is $25 at Nordstrom, but I’m sure you can find it in other places that sell St. Tropez.  It only takes a small amount & the bottle is pretty big so I think it’ll last several months.
