Makeup Tips for Back to School Season

Well, as some of you may know August is quickly approaching, and for many of us August signals the end of Summer, and the beginning of the Back to School Season. Some of you may be thinking; well Penny, I don’t even have my outfit picked pout for the first day of school. I am here to help you with the makeup portion of your morning routine.

Back to School Makeup doesn’t have to be dramatic or intricate. I want ladies out there to focus on the one part of your face which is most important for you. If you have really nice eyes play with some different eyeshadow colors, or different styles of eyeliner. If your skin is naturally dewy try to make it glow by experimenting with different highlighters.

Here are 10 tips to make your makeup routine easier:

  1. Pick the makeup items you want to use the night before.
  2. Have your brushes and other tools handy.
  3. Pick looks that are easy to do, do not take a long time doing a cut crease!
  4. Make sure to prime and set your face.
  5. Try to enhance your natural features.
  6. Try to get your brows done ahead of going back to school.
  7. Keep all you makeup organized and in one place
  8. Bring your lipstick or gloss in your backpack.
  9. Do not pick new products to try out!
  10. Have fun with your makeup!

Impressions Vanity Mirror Review!!!

Hello my beauties,

as some of you may know, I am a little bit addicted to makeup. For my birthday I asked my parents to get me a vanity mirror. At first the answer I got was no, but then my dad warmed up to the idea, and I got one for my birthday. The mirror came from a site called, it is the style Hollywood Iconic XL Vanity Mirror. I didn’t know what to expect when ordering from this website.

I was hoping that nothing came broken when I got it. The mirror has 12 LED Incandescent Bulbs, which means it is very bright. It helps do my makeup because it lets me look at my makeup in different lights and lets me see if I need to fix my contour or bronzer.

Impressions Vanity also has a 10% off discount when you sign up to receive their emails, and they have sales often, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the next sale that happens. Usually when there is a holiday coming they will have 20% off the site, except on Black Friday which the sale goes up to 30% off.

Thank you for reading this article and I hope to see you soon. 😀

Summer Vacation 2018: Makeup Packing Tips

Hello my beauties, are any of you going on vacation this summer? It might be only for a few days or it might be a week or two, here are some tips to packing your makeup; that might help you pack a little less.

  • Primer is another step that you might not think about, but if you have oily skin you might need a pore filling primer, or if you have dry skin you need a more dewy primer or a liquid highlighter.
  • Pack a travel sized sunscreen for your face, you might think, but Penny my foundation already has SPF, but that isn’t enough SPF you need a little more to protect your face from getting sunburned.
  • Pack a foundation with SPF, and that you know works with your skin, please don’t pack a foundation that you just bought or a friend recommended because that foundation may not work with your skin.
  • The concealer you decide to bring is personal choice and different people have different under eye areas. If you need to cover anything and spot conceal bring a higher coverage concealer, and if you think you don’t need that high of a coverage with your concealer, pick a lighter coverage concealer.
  • Powder is different for everyone, if you have oily skin and you need to touch up throughout the day then you might need to bring a loose translucent powder or a compact with a matte powder in it.  If you have dry skin you might still need a little powder, but not as much as an oily skinned gal.
  • Bronzer or contouring is where the space in your makeup bag starts to get a little crowded one of the tips I have is to get a big Z palette from any brand that you like and pop out your favorite bronzer and put it in the palette.
  • Blush, you can pop out any blush out of the compact except the Colourpop super shock cheeks and super shock shadows.
  • Highlighter is another one that you can buy just the pan on some of the makeup websites.
  • For eyeshadows if you have single shadows already depoted then you can put them in a Z palette, and you make any combination of eyeshadows that you love.
  • For lips I suggest taking a gloss, and a liquid lipstick whether it’s a satin liquid lipstick or a matte liquid lipstick, that way you get the option to have both.

Thank you for reading this article 😀 Let me know in the comments below if you are going on vacation and where.

Sephora VIB Sale: Spring 2018

Hello my beauties,  as I am sure everyone knows that the Sephora VIB Rouge sale starts this Friday, April 13th, 2018- Monday April 16th, 2018 for the first weekend. Then the second weekend that you can shop is April 20th, 2018- April 23rd, 2018.  During the Spring Sale VIB Rouges get 15%, and Regular VIB’s also get 15% off, and if you are just a regular Beauty Insider you get 10% off. This article will let you know what I recommend for this sale.

The first palette I recommend is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette, this palette retails for $42.00 and it will be on sale for $35.70. This palette has fourteen shades, nine of them being matte shades and five of them being pressed glitter shades. I would recommend this palette it is very versatile for the beauties that like that natural glam. This eyeshadow palette is also very diverse in that it has many transition shades like Orange Soda, Rustic, and Burnt Orange. This palette has some fall out, and the pressed glitters are amazing, but beginners need to be careful with this palette if that is their palette of choice.

The next palette I recommend is the Violet Voss: Like a Boss Eyeshadow Palette, I reccomend this palette because of all the different colors, it has intense duo chrome shades, which for those who don’t know what that means, it means that the shade may have a brown base but when you look at it in the light it looks blue.  This palette retails for $45.00, and put will be on sale for $38.25. This palette has 20 shades, 12 are shimmers and 8 are mattes. I do think this palette has less fall out than the Anastasia Palette.

The next product I would recommend is to pick up a foundation that you have eyeing because this is the time to spoil yourself and get that lux foundation that you have been looking at the Dior Skin Forever Foundation retails for $52.00, and then it will be on sale for $44.20.

The next recommendation is a Bronzer or Blush that you have been eyeing the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure retails for $38.00 and it will be on sale for $32.30. This Blush is super light and running it will give you a light plum flush to the cheeks that looks amazing.
