Whats in My Makeup Bag

So here it is....the perfectionist in me wanted to wipe down all my makeup before showing it but I wanted this to be the real deal, well minus two old q-tips I used to blend my eyeliner (I didn't think y'all would mind not seeing those.)

I took one of the bags off my Mary Kay travel roll up bag because its clear and I like to see what I'm digging for. Here's whats in my bag, my must have's that travel with me, even to the grocery store! haha!

I don't carry a purse when my babies are small, simply not enough arms. Here is the super cute bag I carry all my "supplies" in!

Thanks for taking a tour of my makeup bag!

I also wanted to add a BIG thank you for your feed back and very kind words! I have tried to comment back to each of you but it does not post. I'm sure its something I'm doing and I hate to sound dumb but thats why you haven't gotten a response back from me!

Blushing Bride Keris

I had the honor of doing beautiful Keris' wedding day makeup along with many of her brides maids and her wonderful Mom for her wedding 2 years ago. Since I didn't have a blog then I thought I would share them now! Keris and Jeremy had an absolutely gorgeous wedding! Enjoy!

Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down...a product review

If you have read any of my previous post you know I love eyelashes and that
mascara is by far my favorite makeup. I am extremely picky about mascara. I recently tried Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint(Extreme Defining & Lengthening)Mascara.
Lets first start off with the things I did like.
The brush is very tiny which I think is great for younger girls or someone who is just learning to apply mascara.
Yep thats really all I liked about it....
Ready? Here's what I didn't like.
This mascara is seriously stinky! I like a very black mascara, this mascara although it says it is black hardly showed up on my lashes. It gave me some length and seperation but the look was far too natural for what I want! Maybe someone with a very fair complection or a young girl just starting to wear makeup but this product is definitely NOT for me! This product was a THUMBS DOWN for sure!

I'd love to know what your favorite mascara is?
