MAKEUP MAKEUP and more MAKEUP! What's in your beauty bag?

 Confession: I LOVE makeup! My makeup bag is actually two makeup bags! lol.  I thought a fun and different post would be to share what makeup I actually use on a normal day.  Kind of my everyday routine.
 I do not discriminate against cheap brands! I like what works, if it's from the drugstore even better! that being said my three main makeup brushes are all by ELF.  This is a super affordable makeup line at Target.  I have their Kabuki Face brush ($6) these easily cost up to $50 at Sephora and are seriously life changing! If you don't have one get one! They are amazing! I have their eyeshadow brush and blush brush.  I also use the ELF Eyebrow kit which is Identical to the wax and shadow kit MAC sells.  Lastly by ELF I like their Bronzer/Contouring Blush Duo its pretty much the same as the NARS kit.  I have mine in "St. Lucia".
 I like using the ELF duo more for the bronzer and mainly use my NARS blush duo to add pink! I have the NARS duo in "Deep Throat/Amour.  For the summer I'm obsessed with using Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter.  you just dab a little on your cheeks and it gives you a dewy look.  As an under eye concealer I've been using NYC coverstick ($2) forever! I've tried so many other brands but for some reason this cheap little guy does it for me!
When it comes to lips I don't really wear lipstick unless I'm going out on the town! In everyday life I have been using NARS Turkish Delight for as long as I can remember.  I love this gloss because its not sticky and adds the perfect amount of light pink.  If I do want a lipstick for the daytime I grab  my MAC in Lustre Soft Savour.  Lets see what else is in this picture...oh I have larger pores so I love using SMASHBOX Photo Finish! Its literally like an airbrush for your skin!  My mascara is also by SMASHBOX called Full Exposure.  HOWEVER my second favorite mascara is Maybelline FALSIES.  The tall skinny black tube is my latest obsession. I'm big into contouring because I have full cheeks so I recently found the contouring stick by LANCOME. Its a contour and highlight duo.  LOVE it! I have that in shade Bisque.
.
This last picture shows my everyday eyeshadows and eyeliner.  I love MAC products for both.  I have the Graphblack pencil which is my favorite dry liner.  My trio shadow is "Cool Companions" and the single pot is "sumptuous olive".  

That's all! Do you use any of the same makeup items? Whats your favorite items to use? Id love to hear from you!! I recently joined BIRCHBOX (this past December) and there is SO many items I'm hooked on now that I had no idea about before!!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors! Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate
