Ahhhh. The weekend.There is nothing better than not having to wake up early and go to work. These few short days are just for you to do anything you want. For me, the weekend is when I like to let my skin breathe from the long days of makeup, sweat and dirt filled days of the week. However, when I do put on makeup during the weekend I like to keep it as simple as possible. I don’t like to do anything too crazy just enough to make myself look put together.
I start with BareMinerals Completion Rescue * in shade 4.5 wheat as my base I like to blend it in with a real technicians sponge. I like keeping my base product light with coverage so that it doesn’t feel heavy and my skin still looks like my skin. It’s the weekend and I don’t like to put too much effort in my makeup routine.Unfortunately, for me, I have dreadfully bad dark circles and have to cover them up with the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin *in light to even out the darkness. To give it a more natural look I just dot the concealer on to my dark circles then blend it out with my real techniques sponge.
I then move on to my eyes where I start with my eyebrows. I like to fill in the sparse areas of my eyebrows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer * in dark brown. I don’t go crazy or anything but I just like my eyebrows to look even. With my eyeshadow, I really like that the one wash of color on the eye. It’s a simple and effortless look that can be done in seconds. The Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon in bronze truffle is my current favorite for this, all I do is swipe it on and blend out with my fingers. Then to finishes off my look by I coat my lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise * mascara.

Mascara is one of my favorite beauty products to use hands down. I am always so excited when it come to pick out a mascara that I want to wear for the day. When it comes to buying mascara I tend to stick with drugstore brands. Not only are they a great price but I feel that the formula is just as good or even better than some of the high-end brands. I really do have my favorite high-end mascaras but I tend to reach for a drugstore mascara more than the high-end one. I have narrow down my favorite to my top three that are totally worth buying from the drugstore.
Maybelline Lash Sensational
When I first bought this mascara and used it I could totally see why there was so much hype about this product.It made my lashes look longer, fuller and it did not clump at all.Which is everything that I want in a mascara regardless if it high-end or drugstore. I have repurchased the Lash Sensatioanl mascara multiple times and will keep buying it. I will always have this on hand in my makeup bag as a trusty go to. Also, what makes this a great mascara is that no matter what kind of make up you are wearing for the day, it goes. This is also great for days when you don’t want to wear any other make up but mascara just to make yourself look a little more put together. Great for when you get done with the gym and have some errands to do.
L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise
This mascara has been out for a little bit now and I feel like everyone is talking about it in the beauty community. The L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise is hands down one of THE best mascaras that I have tried. I also agree with a lot of other beauty lover that this is a great dupe for the Too Faced BTS mascara ,you are getting the same great look without the higher price tag. It makes my lashes look fuller, super long , does not clump or flake off. I can wear this all day and it still looks as good as when I first put it on. Even when you put on more than one coat of the mascara on my lashes still look just as amazing and not clumply. I could go one talking about this mascara for days if I wanted to do but if I where you I would run to the closest drugstore and pick yourself up one of these quick. Seriously go get your hands on this now.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Fake Out
Physisans Formula is a brand that I feel that is not on a lot of peoples radars. They really have some great products like the Organic Wear Fake Out mascara. I love the way this mascara curls and adds volume to my lashes. Also, it has 100% natural ingredients which is a plus. The only thing that is a negitive for me was that it did not give me that “Fake ” lash look which I am okay with it,which is probabley why I love this mascara so much. It gives me a very natual looking lash would is great for daytime looks or when you dont want to wear a lot of make up. You really can’t go wrong with this mascara.
What is your favorite drugstore mascara ? Do you prefer drugstore or high-end mascara?
Tarte is one of all time my favorite brand of makeup and they never seem to disappointment me with any of the products that I have tried from them thus far. One of my favorite products that Tarte makes is their eyeshadows because they are richly pigmented and super easy to blend when they are on the eyelid. I love a good color payoff from an eyeshadow and Tarte sure as heck knows what they are doing with theirs. I recently had a Sephora gift card that I want to use up that I had from Christmas. So while I was in line to check out I got sucker into buying something from those sample and mini products pods that are all around you while in line saying “BUY ME! I know you want to!”
The one that was calling my name that day was the Tarte Tartlet Tease Clay Palette. BOY was I glad that this little joy of a palette had jumped into my basket before I had left the store. I had seen this mini palette before and never really had much thought about until I was waiting in line that day. I really don’t know where is palette has been but with the six perfectly pair shades, it sure as heck rocked my world.There are four matte shades and two shimmer shades which are super handy for creating multiple looks. I find that myself reaching for it almost every day and on the plus side it has a very delightful smell, almost like vanilla cupcakes.
The Tease palette is a palette that you will not regret buying yet it is not overly priced. It is the perfect size to travel with whether you are going to your friend’s house for the night or traveling a few months in Europe. I am defiantly taking this with in May when I go to Florida.You can make a daytime look and a night looks with the same palette.When it comes down to it if you have not tried this palette before then you need to. It’s just one of those makeup products that you make a part of your routine and you will miss it if it not there.
Please share what you favorite Tarte product in the comment below. I would love to hear from you.
Much love, Brynn
