Easy Spring Makeup Tutorial

When it comes to makeup, I’m all about neutrals and keeping things simple, but I’m loving all the bold lip colors that are trending this spring. If you follow me on Instagram or SnapChat, you know I can’t get enough of the new Burt’s Bees® 100% Natural Lipstick in Magenta Rush (been wearing it non-stop), so I’m working with Burt’s Bees® and EcoTools® to create a fresh spring makeup look around that shade.

Urban Decay Gash Lipstick & Nail Polish

The first time I saw an Urban Decay display, live and in person, I was in a major lip gloss phase. I was instantly drawn to the discontinued Lip Gunk glosses and Gash was my first purchase. I wore the shhh out of it. It was my go-to because of the deep red color and lasting power.

Valentine’s Day Beauty Gifts

Instead of making Valentine’s Day into some big deal, I prefer to think of it as a, “Treat Yo’ Self” moment, a la Parks and Recreation. I spoil myself with something I wouldn’t normally justify buying, instead of making the boyfriend run around looking for the perfect gift. Last year, I went a little overboard on chocolate-covered grapes and strawberries. Healthy eating be damned!

So, whether you are shopping for the beauty lover in your life or indulging in a treat for yourself, here are some items worth splurging on this V-Day.

Drugstore Brand Wars – L’Oreal Paris

Last year, the Makeup Wars crew embarked on our first ever Brand Wars, with each of us declaring our love for a particular makeup brand and sharing our favorites. This time around, we are splitting Brand Wars up into Drugstore and Prestige editions and today we are sharing our drugstore favorites.

Looking through my beauty stash, particularly the cart I keep in my bathroom for everyday use, you will see a lot of products from L’Oréal Paris. I find them to be consistently good and made from quality ingredients, so it’s hard not to love them. Keep reading to see which L’Oréal items are tops on my list.
