Color Of The Year!!!!

1 Jan

Happy New Year!!!!!! 2013 was a phenomenal year! Before I get too into this post, I would first like to say thank you to everyone that has supported this blog of mine since the beginning. If you’re new to it, I also want to thank you for stopping by! I am so grateful to you all!!! XO- Journey

Every year Pantone also known as the authority on color announces the “color of the year” and this year it’s a lovely purplish/fuschia hue they call Radiant Orchid.

As with any trend, a great way to get involved is to start with makeup.  Everyone can afford a lipstick or a nail polish and it’s not as risky as wearing a dress or a coat in that hue if you’re not that into color. Below are some fun makeup products to shop that will get you right into this trend!

Side note: This color is flattering on all skin tones!

My favorite lipstick $4.99 I can’t get enough of this lipstick!

Eyeliner $19 I own so many of these Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and they are some of the BEST on the market. They really do last 24 hours and are highly pigmented.

Shadow pot$19 While we’re on the subject of pigment, Urban Decay has the most pigmented shadows EVER! They are by far my favorite eyeshadow brand!

Fabulous Friday Finds- Beauty Edition ( nothing over $20)

8 Mar

Happy Friday Fashionistas!!!!!! Today’s FFF post is all about beauty and includes my favorite products that are $20 or less.  While I do have my pricier items that I can’t live without, most of my favorite beauty products are affordable and I’m going to share them with you today!  These products are available at your local Ulta beauty store or drugstores like Target, Rite Aid and CVS.  Happy shopping.

NYX Matte Bronzer $9

I love this product and use it to contour and add glow without shimmer!

matte bronzer

Aquaphor $4

This “vaseline like” stuff repairs most any dry skin including lips, cuticles, elbows, knees etc.  I use it on my lips every night before bed.

Aquaphor

NYX matte lip cream $6

This is my go to lip color most days of the week, it’s matte and stains the lips perfectly without being sticky or drying out my lips.

Milani Crystal lipgloss $4

When I want slight shine, this lip gloss is perfect.  I usually take it out with me, it’s so tiny and fits in any clutch. My favorite color is whisper- a nice peachy pink.

Milani

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 70. $10       Remember……you only get 1 face!  Protect it!!!!!

SPF 70 is what I use on my face every day whether or not I wear makeup it’s just a part of my daily routine.  I did however have a hard time finding sunscreen that I liked for my face because I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily with new products or greasy lotions.  This formula is very light and NOT STICKY!

sunblock

Maybelline Falsies Mascara $7

This is my favorite mascara of all time (although clump crusher is close second now). I put 2 coats on my upper lashes and 1 coat on my lower and I’m good to go.  I don’t wear false lashes so this product is my “falsies”.

Falsies

Urban Decay Primer Potion- eyeshadow primer $20

I don’t even attempt to wear eyeshadow without this miracle product!  It keeps my eye shadow crease free for hours upon hours and helps the color ‘pop’ as well!  I have tried all the primers on the market and this is by far my favorite, it’s the only one that works for me.

Primer

NYC Brow Kit $4

This is my favorite brow kit not only because it works great, but the price is incredible!!!!! I’m kind of obsessed with beautiful thick eyebrows and this kit helps me maintain mine!  I have never been a fan of eye brow pencils because in my experiences they always leave room for error- and by error I mean a drawn on clown eyebrow look- which is so not for me.  I’ve always preferred brush on powder and wax kits because they give a more natural look while still filling in brows flawlessly!  So if you want thick bold brows or just need a little help filling in, this product won’t let you down!

If you’re an eyeshadow lover, then this post is for you. I am an eyeshadow lover and  my go-to combo would definitely  be a neutral smokey eye.  I’m often asked what brand I like most and there isn’t one answer, that’s for sure.   After years of trying shadow after shadow I keep going back to the same brands; MAC, Urban Decay, Smashbox and NYX!  Yes NYX is included on my list.  NYX is a very reasonably priced makeup brand that I love and have great quality products for the price. They have excellent shadows and also sell my favorite soft matte lip cream, which is amazing!!!! All I want in an eyeshadow are great colors, incredible color payoff, long lasting wear and high pigment and these brands provide that consistently!  I do use primer so that my shadow pops and because I naturally have oily lids that cause my eyeshadow to crease after only a couple hours of wear. ok back to the shadows.  I am a fan of palettes because they are super fun, easy to take on the go and are almost always a better deal than buying everything separate.  As a fan of the neutral smokey eye, Urban Decay’s Naked palettes are perfect…..I am especially a fan of the Naked 2 palette!  I have recently discovered some other palettes worth trying and have been very happy with them as well. Here is the list starting with my favorite Naked 2.

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette($50): Includes 12 shadows, a dual sided shadow brush and a travel sized lip gloss. available at Sephora.

Urban Decay Smoked palette($49): Includes 10 shadows, a full sized eyeliner and a travel sized eyeshadow primer my fav primer. Available at Sephora.

Smashbox Masters palette($59): Includes 28 shadows, 4 brow powders, 8 cream eyeliners, 2 blushes, 3 highlights and 4 lip glosses. Available at Sephora.

NYX All I ever wanted palette($28): Includes 72 shadows, 8 face colors, 6 lip colors and 4 blushes. available at NYX.

Note: MAC and Urban Decay also sell empty palettes that you can fill with the eyeshadow colors of your choice.
