Topless & Barefoot
I was asked to do a photoshoot for the School of Pharmacy so I desperately needed to change my fiery red nails into something more classy and professional. Topless & Barefoot is a barely there soft pink beige. It will be perfect for the photos I will be taking tomorrow. I’m so excited I get to miss class and pretend I’m a professional in my white lab coat ;)

Walking on Eggshells
The other day I received my prize package from the lovely Gabriella from GlossandGab. I never win anything, so this was a first for me. The package included an ELF eyeshadow brush and clear gloss, Wet N Wild trio in Walking on Eggshells, and a cute makeup bag from Forever 21. I was really excited to give Wet N Wild a second chance. Last year I purchased a quad from their Color Icon collection...
Weekend in Los Angeles
My cousin/bff flew in from Orlando to visit us a couple of weeks ago. We stayed at the amazing W Hotel in Santa Monica, visited Hollywood and other landmarks, and watched black and white classics at TCM’s Film Festival. I wish I could be doing anything half as fun for this Memorial Day Weekend, but the truth is I’m stuck at home writing papers, analyzing patient cases, and...
Anonymous asked: I saw that you have the Naked Palate. I tested it out at ULTA the other day and I fell in love with the color Toasted. I can't afford the whole Palate right now and i feel like its a bit of a rip off to buy the one shade for almost a third of the price of 12. Do you know any shades that are a bit less pricey that are very similar to Toasted?
Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box
Lid: Underground Crease: Zero Liner: Ransom Lashes: Ardelle #120 I decided to add a little twist to my everyday neutral makeup by using Ransom, a vibrant purple shadow as a liner. Ransom also comes in a pencil formulation. For this look I used only the shadow and applied it with an angled brush. This palette is one of my all time favorites. The shadows glide on with ease and are...
Sugar Daddy is the Best!
He must read my blog because I got everything I wanted from my Wishlist Wednesday Post. What a perfect Congrats-you-got-a-job-and-now-you-can-buy-makeup-with-your-own-$$$ Gift. Thanks, Boo :)
kadorade asked: I found your blog from Drug Store Princess and I adore it =) I do have a quick question though. Is there a product that you can use to transform shadow into liner, like something you can mix it with so the line is more defined and it stays longer?
Dolce Vita by Nars
This is my first Nars blush…and just like that I fell in love. I have never come across a more amazing blush in my life. It’s buttery smooth, super pigmented, and blends like a dream. The quality of this Nars product exceeds that of all others in its kind. Dolce Vita is a dusty rose with no shimmer. It glides on with ease and lasts all day. I am so upset with myself that I...
All Time Favorites: Benefit Boi~ing Concealer
This is probably my most used product of all time. I love the consistency and texture of this. Unlike any other concealer I have tried, this one actually does a good job at camouflaging my under eye circles as well as scars/broken capillaries and other minor imperfections on my face. Benefit describes this product as “an industrial strength concealer” and it really does a good...
Flora by Gucci
I’m such a sucker. I bought this perfume, simply because it shares my first name (minus the a). Have you ever done that? I didn’t even take the time to smell it, I just knew I had to have it. Lately, I rediscovered this perfume and began to wear it once again. Flora, one of the most loved Gucci icons, was born as a special commission for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966. It...
My Top 3 Mascaras:
Diorshow by Dior Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Nothing will ever replace the amazingness of Diorshow, but Loreal Voluminous comes in a close second and it’s one third of the cost. YSL gives you extraordinary volume, but is the most expensive of the three. What are your top 3 mascaras?
I’m really loving floral prints at the moment. These are just a few things I picked up from Forever 21 a few weeks ago. Did I tell you I go shopping after every major exam to de-stress myself? Let’s just say I spend a lot of time at the mall :) Romper, Dress, and Jewelry: Forever 21. Wedges: Target.
Craving of the Day: Nutella & Fresh Strawberries
Currently eating the most delicious thing of my life: Fresh California Strawberries and yummy Nutella.
#1 Pet Peeve:
Accidentally spilled half of my pigment jar in my hurry to get ready this morning. I blame this on my lack of sleep thanks to today’s cardiology final exam. Grrr.
Top Liner: Waveline Fluidline by Mac Bottom Liner: Flipside by Urban Decay Tools: Mac #210 Lashes: Ardelle #120 Demi (I am absolutely in love with this navy liner. It contrasts well with my brown eyes, and it’s super easy to apply)
Another Mac Haul...
Fluidline: Blacktrack, Waveline, and Dipdown Paintpot: Bare Study Eye Brushes: #217, #210, and #208
Mac Lustre in Cockney, $14.50. My cousin bought this lipstick in Santa Monica when she was visiting. It’s a beautiful red, and very glamorous. We wore it out everyday she was here.
y GPS Lost Without My GPS is a beautiful pink/orange opaque shade. Bought this with my last Sephora online purchase. Find it here for only $5.
Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude ($24) UD Primer Potion in Greed ($19) UD Urbanglow Cream Highlighter in Sin ($24)
I just got a job! You’re talking to a new Kaiser Intern Pharmacist. I’ll be working in a new facility right next to a water park, 7 minutes from my house. Seriously, these medical offices look like something you’d see on Grey’s Anatomy or House. So modern and aesthetically beautiful. And the pay is the best. You know what that means? My makeup collection is about to...
