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 also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
