Okay as a Makeup Junkie, I have to admit I have bought into the hype of many of products. A lot have dissapointed me but there are some that have made me the literal heart-eye emoji. Here are my top makeup items I have to have and some product faves!
1) Foundation - I can not live life without foundation. I don't "Hate" my skin but I'm not in love with it either. I have to admit that those acne scars are still a problem that i have to deal with today. But its not just about covering up acne scars, foundation is just fun to apply. That might sound weird but I absolutely love applying foundation, the act alone is fun! My favorite foundation is the L'Oréal Pro Matte foundation. I have to mix the two darkest shades for my shade but for my oily skin girls, this foundation is amazing!
2) Liquid Lipstick - I'm addicted to this stuff, it's a serious problem. I had to stop buying them because it was getting to a ridiculous point. If you want a long-lasting lipstick and haven't tried this type of lipstick yet. Then what are you waiting for? they are drying on the lips but they last for a long time! My favorite brand would be the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. They are super creamy and look amazing on the lips. I need to try the Kylie lipsticks, but not before I use up some of the lipsticks I already have.
My 20's have been a rollercoaster of emotions and life events that have changed me tremendously. Growing up I pictured my 20s to be this great time in my life, where I would be having fun, graduating college, and just living the good life. IT HAS NOT BEEN THAT WAY. That sounds depressing and discouraging, and to be honest it has been. But something happened this year that made me realize that this is how it is for almost all of my generation. No matter how many happy/ perfect life pictures people post on Facebook or Instagram, I can promise you everyone is struggling with something. Because that is life, that's just how the cookie crumbles. We all get a deck of cards handed to us and how we play those cards is exactly up to us. This year has been me, getting my life together, figuring out what I actually want, how to better myself, how to better life for myself. If you are struggling with where you are in life, I highly suggest that you have that moment with yourself, where you are brutally honest and go over what you actually want out of life. Once you figure that out, break down your goal into mini bite size pieces that you can take to get to that goal. And work your butt off for those goals! You have to put in that WORK! Honestly, that's what i've been doing, putting in that work. I'm back in school, working towards a degree and that takes a lot of time. I've been praying about my future, asking god, to show me what he wants for and from me. While getting a degree is something that I want to achieve, blogging is something that I feel is for me. It makes me happy typing these words, getting my opinions out into the world. So I'm trying this again. I can't promise you that I will blog consistently, I'm still trying to balance everything and get a good schedule going. I'm doing this because I want to connect with people, I want to type out the thoughts in my head, I want to have a little corner of the world people can go to that gives them escapes from their own problems. Because god knows how many times I have had to have something like that and youtube and bloggers have definitely given that to me. But honestly, helping people is what I want to do, what I was created to do. So here I am, here are my thoughts. I'm back in action, trying to figure it all out.
