Back to School Tag

So I saw this tag going around and I thought this would be the perfect time to do this tag since school is only 2 weeks away.

What are you excited and/or nervous for this year?
I’m excited that this is my last year of college and I will have my degree.

What's your favorite part of getting ready for back to school?
Shopping for new school clothes…. It gives me an excuse to shop and she the new styles for the season.

What grade were you in when you first started wearing makeup to school?
I tried in the 10th grade but I could never find the right color foundation so I gave up. Last year I give it another try and have been wearing it ever since. So the short answer is about a year.

Where or from whom do you like getting inspiration for back to school?
Youtube  is one of my main sources, I also look at the store manikins to see what they are wearing. Also friends and magazines.

What are your favorite upcoming "back to school"/fall trends for this year?
Not too sure exactly what they trends are now but like last year I love my leggings  and boots and we cant forget blazers… I love me so blazers!!!

Where do you like to go shopping for back to school supplies?
Walmart or wherever they have the best sales. I love a bargain.

What are your favorite stores to go back to school shopping?
Wet seal, Forever 21, JC Penny anywhere else they have cute clothes.

Will you be carrying a backpack or a purse to school this year? Most likely both

What are 3 non-beauty essentials you HAVE to carry in your backpack/purse?
Cell phone (with ipod), Pens or Pencils, Planner

What are 3-4 beauty essentials that you HAVE to carry in you backpack/purse?
Mirror, Powder, Lipgloss, Powder brush

What are your go-to hair products for this year, and what is your go to hair style?
Well this question I can’t really answer because I just recently went natural so I am still experimenting as to what products to use. For hairstyles I will probably be doing twist-outs, coils, and quickweaves.

What are your go-to makeup products for this year and what is your go-to makeup look for school?
I’ll be using my Makeup Forever HD foundation with a neutral eye probably with my Naked Palette. Eye lashes are a must for me so I will be wearing Red Cherry lashes.

I just wanted to let you guys know that I am going on vacation tomorrow until Monday so you probably wont see a post from me until Tuesday. Me and my family are going to stay in our house in the Poconos so it will be a nice relaxing time before school starts in 2 weeks (whew the summer went by super quick).

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

Hey beauty lovers! This is a long awaited haul that I have been meaning to do. A few weeks ago I got my hands on the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette and I have had to time review it and one word explains this palette... Wonderful!!!

I love this palette it has some many different colors from bright to neutral to colors that are perfect for smokey eyes. Although the palette is $55 if you think about it you get 15 eye shadows for $55 when one urban decay show costs $17. But I know you guys probably wanna see swatches and pics so lets get right into it.

The first column consits of all neutral colors with the first color consisting of lots of shimmer.
The middle column are very bright colors with a bright pink purple and dark blue and turquoise color
The last column is very good for smokey eyes.

                               Left to Right: Midnight Rodeo, Midnight 15, Vanilla, Flow, Chase
Left to Right: Tainted, Junkshow, Omen, Evidence, Deep End

                                      Left to Right: Deeper, M.I.A., Ace, Blackout, Half Truth

New Makeup Storage

Hey beauty lovers! I hope everyone had a good holiday, I know I did! I was sort of sad waking up this morning because I knew I had to get back into the daily routine of work again  (blah). Anyway I got a really good response from my makeup brush holder post (click here if you haven't seen that post)  that I decided to do more makeup and storage type videos. So I wanted to share my new storage that I received recently my MUJI 5 drawer acrylic container. I know there has been a lot of buzz about those containers because they are so similar to the clear cube storage (a lot of people have seen the ones the  Kardasians have) Here is what the container looks like:

These containers are very sturdy and durable so I feel that it was well worth the $23.95 I paid. Although the drawers are not that deep you can still fit a lot of makeup inside of them. Here is what I put inside of mine.

1st drawer from the top:
Blush (Milani, MAC, ELF, NYX)

2nd Drawer:
Lipsticks (MAC, NYX, Revlon, Covergirl, Milani)
3rd Drawer:
Lipgloss (ELF, Revlon, Mac, Milani, NYX, Wet n Wild)
4th Drawer:
Eye Drawer (Elf, Revlon, Rimmel, Maybelline, Too Faced, Wet n Wild, NYX)

5th Drawer:
Pigments (Elf, L'oreal, Spectrum, Still Glamorous)

I can't wait to get more of these! If you would like to purchase your own check out the site. But I must worn you that they go quick so check the site frequently.

Do you have a muji? what's in yours?
