I ordered some new Milk Makeup products during the 2018 Friends & Family Sale last week. They just arrived and I am so excited to share my first impressions on both the brand and the products! I picked up a mix of skincare and makeup products, so I think I’m getting a pretty well-rounded idea of how I like the brand.
Colorful highlights are so pretty in photographs. Not that they’re unappealing or lacking in real life, but they tend to be less wearable than our neutral tones. I’ve been loving the glittery pink glow given by Colourpop Cosmetics’ Super Shock Cheek in Over the Moon, so I decided to create a wearable look using this disco-worthy highlighter.
There is nothing more exciting than receiving a mystery box full of makeup bought especially for you.

Very rarely do I find myself purchasing a non-neutral palette. Bright colors and experimental looks are not part of my everyday makeup arsenal. For me to splurge on a fun playtime eyeshadow palette, it has to meet certain criteria. The color selection has to be cohesive, the shadow quality has to be top-notch, and the packaging has to be both functional and visually appealing. Enter the Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne collab. I scored the Kaleidoscope Dreams eyeshadow palette and Beauty Beam highlighting palette for 50% off at my Sephora. After both watching Youtubers rave about the shadows and seeing beautiful swatches on all of my feeds, I decided that the collab lived up to my non-neutral palette standards.

Along with the change in wardrobe comes a change in the way we present our faces. The warmer weather and blooming surroundings inspire a fresh take on beauty — full of color, full of light, and full of freshness. If you’re inspired by spring, be sure to try these looks this season! Continue reading “Spring Beauty || Makeup Looks to Try”
