Update On My Makeup Journey

A few weeks ago I talked about my new discovery of makeup. Since then I have made it a thing to wear makeup everyday, except for the lazy days. I went from never wearing eyeliner in my life to wearing it everyday. The first time I used liquid eyeliner it looked like a 3 year old drew on my eyelids. It was horrible. After a few tries I got it down. Starting out I had one mascara and one eye shadow. So I figured I should probably go shopping.  This is what I have so far. 

I already had Cover Girl Lash Blast but didn't really like it. I recently purchased Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal. Let me just say I love this stuff. I wanted something to make my lashes POP. It makes my lashes longer and fuller. The only downfall is that it kind of smells like playdough.

As I have said before I get a Birchbox every month with lots of fun samples. Sometimes the samples are full sized. Well I've gotten a few things lately that I really love.

What is your favorite makeup item? What is a staple that you can't go without? I'm still at Kindergarten level so any help is much appreciated. I will keep you all posted with any new discoveries. 


  1. Maybelline Define-A-Lash and Stila or MAC Gel Liner with a good brush are my staples. I like the gel liner because it is a little less wet than the liquid and stays on without smearing like a pencil will (at least in my case).
    Good for you for wearing makeup every day! I'm a strictly M-F only if I'm working girl. :)

    1. I need to try out gel liner. I think that will be my next purchase. I'm in love with Stila products right now. Yeah I'm usually Mon-Thurs, which are my working days. Then Saturday if we go out.
