My Holiday 2016 Wishlist

In case you haven’t picked up on this, I really enjoy making lists whether they’re music playlists, clothing/item wishlists and whatever other types of lists there are. It’s just something that I’ve found to be really calming and it also helps me put together my thoughts… and things I would like to spend money on LOL.

The Best Makeup for Back to School | Under $20

Getting up and going to class can seem like such a tedious task especially if it’s super early in the morning. From experience I can tell you a few things that will make it better; having a easy morning routine and a cute outfit waiting to get worn. To help with your makeup routine I decided to put together a list of my go-to drugstore items that can create a beautiful full face of makeup. And no you don’t have to wear a full face of makeup everyday, I surely don’t have the time for that LOL.

First Impression: Wet n Wild Makeup Brushes

Wet n Wild has recently revamped their product selection and they have added a new collection of makeup brushes!

FullSizeRender (1)

The makeup brushes have white handles with white and pink gradient bristles. The brushes are synthetic, cruelty free and super soft!  These brushes are great for beginners because they have an indentation for your fingers which can help when applying winged liner or doing a look that requires precision. The most that you will be spending on these brushes is $2.99. You can compare the prices of their products to eyeslipsface (ELF) , which is another affordable company that I love.

Out of the collection I have five brushes:

  1.  Crease brush – $.99
  2. Big eye shadow brush – $.99
  3. Blush brush – $2.99
  4. Angled eyeliner brush – $.99
  5. Flat top brush – $2.99.

I haven’t had any issues with these brushes so far and would recommend them to anyone interested!

To purchase you can find these at Walgreens (in store & online) and on Wet n Wild’s website where they have web exclusives. Enjoy!
