New Year, New Makeup

Hello everyone! I hope the start of your Wednesday has been amazing. I am  currently on the fourth day of eating healthy and I already feel a little better. Hopefully I can keep this up! I really want to make it a whole month and see if the habit lasts.

Today I was feeling inspired after watching several Youtube makeup tutorials (I am a little obsessed). This year I want to be more bold in my makeup and try some different things, so my sister and I decided to make a trip to Ulta.

Ulta is a risky place for me to go because it breaks my bank account on occasion! However, I was looking for a few specific things, which helped keep me on track.

One thing I have wanted to try for a long time is fake lashes! My skills at winged liner have gradually gotten better, so I think I am ready for the next step. Several people on Youtube have mentioned the Ardell lashes. There were a variety of different kinds, but I went with a more natural looking pair since I am a beginner.

Next on my list was a new shade of blush and lipliner. For some reason, I have been loving the frosted pink glow, so I picked up the NYX Baked Blush in the shade Journey. I haven't tried it yet, but as soon as I do I will let you guys know! For the lips I got a similar pink in the shade Tea & Cookies. Updates to come :)

After this harsh winter weather I needed a skin saving body butter. I decided on the Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in Moroccan Rose. I immediately lathered it on my hands right when I got home and it smells amazing. Hopefully it will fix my dryness.

Those are the first products I have purchased to ring in the new year! I am really excited to try them out and to explore a little more. I would love to hear about some of your new year beauty products in the comments.

Thank you for reading and have a joyful day!
