An April Wedding: The Beauty Edition

Today we have got a quick glimpse into my makeup world. I love makeup, almost as much as I love nail polish. I don't have any particular loyalties to any brand, big or small. I have used both expensive designer brands and cheap drug store brands and now my daily makeup routine has ended up a hodgepodge of the things that have become my favorites. There are some things I like to spend a little more money on, like MAC eyeshadow for example (the pigmentation can't be beat!), but for others I think that the drugstore brands are perfect - like Maybelline Falsies mascara, my fav mascara of all time, and a $3 NYC bronzer that is my go-to! What follows is the spread of products that I utilized when getting ready for the wedding this last weekend.

The look I went for for the wedding was even glowing skin and a fairly neutral eye with black winged eyeliner - which is pretty much my everyday look - but to vamp it up a little for the occasion I added some false lashes and a bright fuchsia lip. I also used the Sally Hansen Airbrush legs for the first time. I have always seen this at the store and wanted to try it and decided to go for it. My dress was knee length and due to some workout slip-ups last week, I had some little bruises on my shins, so I thought this could be the perfect alternative since I couldn't wear nylons (helllooo strappy sandals) and whenever I try to use fake tanner it goes horribly horribly wrong. It is definitely an interesting product and it did do a lot to cover up some of the imperfections and gave me a little added color too. I won't be surprised if I use up the can pretty quickly. Anyway, here is the rundown of everything shown here and where you can find it!
