    Heads up! I use affiliate links in this post, which means if you grab those items with my links, you’re helping to support my blog! This post is not sponsored, and I bought all these lipsticks with my own money. Happy Thursday! Today I thought it would be fun to reintroduce makeup posts to my blog.I’ve been wanting to ressurect my YouTube channel for a LONG time but I kept thinking I needed things to make it perfect. Well, forget that. If I wait to have great lighting or the right camera or the microphone I (obviously) need, I’ll never do it! So I decided to just start by reviewing…

    A Week of Lipstick: Color Roundup

    As I mentioned, last week I decided to wear a new shade of lipstick every day. It was a challenge to myself, as a lipstick hoarder but not wearer, to see if I could stand wearing lipstick every day (I hate lipstick marks on my coffee cup, and Asa’s baby fingers go STRAIGHT for colorful lips), and also to see if it made me feel any differently after reading two Buzzfeed articles in which one woman went makeupless for a week, and another WORE makeup for a week.

So I thought Valentine’s day would be the PERFECT day to host a giveaway made up of all the things I love most right now. In the mix: my favorite shade of Essie nail polish, my absolute favorite lipstick right now (it smells like vanilla,…

     (Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Grape Vine) (Revlon lipstick, Kiss Me Coral) (Maybelline Lipstick in Coral Crush) (Maybelline Lipstick in Fuchsia Fever) (Maybelline Lipstick in Red Revolution) I never realized how different my mood can be just by what I wear on my lips. These are my five favorite lipcolors right now(the first one looks bare, I know, but trust me… there is a tint of color there.) I thought I’d share them with you on rather than just in their tubes. Which is your favorite?

    You can call me Sweetheart, but don’t call me Babe. Unless you’re Irish.

    So look who finally made an eyeliner tutorial video! After… who knows how long since the first person asked for it. I apologize if I went too fast or if something didn’t quite make sense: these makeup videos aren’t based on things I’ve been taught, so I’m never sure if I can teach them to someone, since… I don’t have anyone else’s teaching to base mine on. If that makes sense. And if you’re wondering what the whitish flecks are in my hair… it’s paint. From… painting. In other exciting news, I wore an actual outfit today! One that isn’t doused in any sort of syrup from work! That is my…
