So, June is my favorite month of the year. This year in specific, that is due to a multitude of reasons. Let me list all the things that are in June this year:
First year of college is over.
Cody’s turning 18.
Cody’s Graduating High School!
It’s our 2 and a half year anniversary.
And warm weather!!
So yeah, I have a lot to be excited about right now. Mostly for Cody’s graduation, and his party that we’re having on June first. Right now at school we’re having dead days, which means no classes. Then on Monday starts finals, but they’re all done by Thursday. Then we’re home free! So yeah. Super excited about that. Mostly because this summer I’ll have time to start vlogging.
So as you all know, despite the fact that I am a freshman in college, I had Prom with my boyfriend this weekend. I am extremely excited for him to graduate in a few weeks so we can attend college together. We’ll both me sophomores, he’s getting some advanced credits for being a smarty pants.
I love the way my hair and makeup turned out for prom, with both of them being done by Paul Mitchell students! My fabulous hair was create by my boyfriend’s cousin, Jess Schmidt, and you can check out her blog at http://www.jessicaschmidt.blog.com. My makeup was a great collection of cosmetics, including VS Pro and Urban Decay.
So, I don’t believe in drug store products. Which is hilarious, since I usually have no money. So let me rephrase. I have no faith in drug store products alone. Certain combinations of drugstore products are amazing. Amazing like the combination in the photo above.
Let me start by saying part of this purchase was a total accident. I thought I was buying a Loreal Mineral Foundation. It turns out, I actually picked up the mineral powder, put it back down, and instead, grabbed the mousse. I am so insanely glad I did. It is full coverage, and makes my skin look amazing, even when it’s decided to naturally be not so amazing.
I also purchased an Almay concealer, which is great. I put it on right after my primer, and before the Loreal mousse. I finish with the Maybelline BB cream that’s in the photo. It blurs imperfections, literally. It smooths out your face AND protects it, which is a great deal for like, $7. Lastly is the soft lips. I know this is kind of an old craze, but I never used it prior to this week. It literally kills the cracks on your lips in 2-3 uses, even if those uses are within the same 24-hour period. Make sure you try out these products, (especially the BB cream) and let me know what other drug store product combinations you’ve tried that totally beat the norm.
