Significant Others: Influencing Your Look or Nah? #BuryMeMondays

Does Your SO Influence Your Look burymemondays

Let me be upfront. This post is influenced by Kim Kardashian West’s recent blonde dye job and her unique fashion choices as of late. Depending on who you ask her husband, Kanye West, is the mastermind behind all these questionable choices and she’s just going along with it. Since many of the choices are an unflattering departure from what she’s typically worn I won’t knock that assessment, however, maybe she just wanted something new(or maybe this). With all that said does your significant other influence your look?

Have you increased or decreased the amount of makeup you wear to please your partner? Have you changed your hair or clothing style based on their suggestions? Were they on point or did you immediately want to go back to your previous style? Let me know in the comments.

For Beginners and Experts Alike: L’Oreal Makeup Genius

If you love makeup you’ve experienced the hope of something working for you only to find out it’s nothing like you thought. If you’re a makeup novice you may grapple with the anxiety of picking something that isn’t going to work for you. No matter the camp you fall in, as a consumer, you have to take a chance, hope for the best, and worst case scenario return it if it doesn’t work. Well L’Oreal is attempting to take some of that guesswork out with their new makeup testing app Makeup Genius.

Now, I know it feels like Spring and Summer are never coming back depending on where you live, but I want to know, do you change your foundation as the seasons change?

What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

Title

My first foundation was a Cover Girl one in Soft Sable. I have no idea how good or how bad it looked but I remember using it, eventually hitting pan and purchasing it again. Not long after that I bought a pink Caboodles organizer and my dad let me order things from an Avon rep he knew. That foundation got the ball rolling for me when it came to makeup. I probably looked like a fool but there aren’t any pictures so I’ll pretend I was cute. 😉 Continue reading What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

Sephora Or Ulta? #BuryMeMondays

Sephora or Ulta #BuryMeMondaysWhile there are countless websites and stores that sell beauty products, Sephora and Ulta are by far the most popular to me. Sephora has mid-level and high end brands like Dior, NARS, and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Ulta has mid-level brands like Urban Decay and LORAC  and drugstore brands like NYX, Maybelline, and Cover Girl.

There’s a little bit of brand overlap but enough differences for someone to have a preference. So which do you love more and why? Is it Sephora or Ulta? If you’ve purchased anything lately from either store tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #BuryMeMondays.
