FOTD Plus Some Gibberish

I don't know if I've mentioned this here or not, but I decided to take part in a Easter beauty swap. This is my first beauty swap ever, and so far it's been a ton of fun. I found the swap on a lovely blogger named Angel's page (to see her blog, click here) and I was immediately interested. So after a brief wait, I was paired up with another beauty blogger, Steffi (to see her blog, click here) who resides in the UK. So we've been emailing each other for the past few days, figuring out what each others' likes and dislikes are and chit chatting. And today I decided to go and pick up her products, as I was going to the drugstore and needed to pick up groceries anyway.
I did end up picking up a new addition to my makeup collection while I was out, but there will be more on that tomorrow.
So I figured that since I was going out, I might as well do my makeup. And being that I was going to do my makeup, I should take pictures and share them with you guys. :)
Which brings me to my random grocery/makeup shopping FOTD!!!
Eye Products Used: Tokidoki Eyeshadow in Soya, e.l.f. Essentials Eye Lid Primer, e.l.f. Essentials Highlighter in Glow, Sephora Collection Long Lasting 12 HR Wear Eye Liner in Glitter Black, e.l.f. Essentials Eye Widener in White, Clinique High Lengths Mascara in Black.
Face Products Used: e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzer Cream, Cover Girl Loose Powder in Translucent Light.
Lip Products Used: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N18, NYC Liquid Lip Shine in Nude York City.

I was just going grocery shopping, so I wanted a really simple look with just a pop of color. And I know that you can't see this, but the eyeshadow is the same color as some of the stripes on my shirt so it does all tie together.
I hope you guys enjoyed my look and ramblings, hope I didn't ramble too much. And make sure to let me know what you think about the look or leave questions about the swap in the comments, I love hearing from you guys! And if you like what you see, I would love it if you subscribed. It really makes my day. Til next time!

  1. I love your look here. Perfect for day time, fairly neutral but modern and a bit of colour pop too. Good job

    1. Thanks so much! I was really looking for a nice balance in this look, nothing over the top, but nothing boring either. Glad you liked it and thanks for following!
