Spring Empties!

Oh gosh you guys, it has been a completely insane couple of months. I ended up moving states again, starting some home renovation projects, researching a switch in careers.. So many things, so little time! But I do have a new empty product posts for you all 🙂

Pale & Light Foundation and Concealer Swatches

Hello all!

It feels like it’s been forever since my last post. I’m 99% settled into my new apartment but still trying to figure out the best configuration for all my makeup and vanity things…. It’s hard when you have a small space! 🙂

Today I have a big post for you: all my foundations and concealers swatched! I’ve never been properly matched at MAC, but from reading a lot (and I mean a lot) on reddit MakeUpAddiction and PaleMUA, I would put myself in the NC5-10 ish range. I think I’m more of a true neutral than strongly warm or cool.

I keep buying new base products to try because gosh darn it! It’s so hard to find something that matches perfectly!

August Empties!

Omg guys I’m moving in one week [insert panicky scream here]. It’s my biggest move in a long while and I totally forgot how long it takes to pack! I’ll definitely be packing until the very last minute.

On that note, I have a lot of August empties because I aggressively tried to use up as much as I could of all the half-full random things I have around. There’s a lot and I’m proud of myself, haha 🙂

Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited 🙂

I’ve had quite a backlog of my Birds of a Feather series that I’ve been meaning to post… so I’m procrastinating on packing for my move by playing with my makeup! Today I have jewels to show off: my emeralds! Now not all of these are emerald, but these are my dark greens to my weird olives. I love green- it really helps show off the green in my hazel eyes. Alas, I rarely wear it as anything other than liner. I just can’t seem to get a fully green eye look to work on me! Any tips and tutorials from you guys would be loved ❤

June & July Empty Products!

It has been madness around my place this past month. Oh, and apparently I’m moving sometime early September and it’s sort of unplanned and [insert excited & frantic screaming here].

If anyone has tips for how to safely pack and move with makeup and perfume (especially the 394734 indie samples I own) I would greatly appreciate it!

And without further ado, here is my super belated pile of June and July empties!

(Belated) March Empties!!

Hello all! I have my March empties post for you today ❤

As April kept flying by, I considered postponing my March empties and combining them with my April, but since it’s looking likely I’ll be moving to a new place early May (!!!!!) I might not have time for an April empties at the end of the month.

So here we are! All my March (and a couple early April) empties!

Liebster Award

{EDIT: This was supposed to be published like four days ago yet accidentally ended up in my drafts. Oops!}

I am so happy that the amazing Bella nominated me for the Liebster Award! I love doing these tags and getting to know other blogs too. I’ll be answering the questions below~

Also! I’ll be taking an itty bitty pause from this blog for a bit. I somehow used up all my image storage for wordpress already (!?!) and despite deleting a bunch of older pics, wordpress isn’t allowing me to upload anything new. I need to take a little time to see if I really want to drop the $$$ to pay for a wordpress upgrade. I love makeup and I love blogging, but it’s kind of a lot of money to drop on a ‘hobby’ blog, especially right now when I’m saving every $ so I can (hopefully) move to a new coast this summer.

Ackk- didn’t mean to get all serious on you guys, but it’s just something I’ve been pondering lately and I don’t have a good answer / solution yet. I would appreciate any thoughts people have, especially those that made the jump to the annual wordpress fee!

ANYWAYS! Onwards to the Q&A and more fun things!!


(thank goodness I had this pic uploaded from the last time I did this tag!)
