It’s been a little over 11 weeks since I’ve been working from home and I’ve been focusing on keeping a routine as much as I have been on being productive.
As easy as it may be to remain in my pj’s, skip: showers, hair brushing, makeup, I’ve been focusing on not doing these things.
I mean, my weekly outfits have become one set of bottoms for sleep, one set for awake time and different tops every day but at least there’s some variety!
The other thing I’ve been focusing on is my skincare routine and applying makeup everday. I’m able to focus more on my skincare because my skin spends more time without makeup on than it did before and I’m not in a rush to get going, but applying makeup is the real pick me up to my day.
I’m loving getting to expirement with more colors, colors I wouldn’t usually wear to the office, and trying different formulas I wouldn’t in the past.
So far I’ve learned I don’t hate shimmery blushes and bronzers as much as I thought I did and maybe dewy foundation actually works better than matte.
Some days I only apply lisptick, or eyeshadow and mascara. Even doing the simplest of makeup helps lift my spirits.
I believe that sticking to these routines have really helped keep me grounding in these uncertain times.
This is the third time I’ve used this palette and each time I love the formula, colors and ease of use so much.
This time I stuck to a purple look instead of pink.
Commitment is a dark purple with shimmer that is perfect for depending a color. It is a very soft formula, I accidentally tapped my flat definer brush too hard and I took a chunk out of the shade. The formula is like a Colourpop super shock shadow so you need to pack it in then blend.
I’ve also been using the Tati Beauty Blendiful for the last week or so and I’m really enjoying being able to do all my face makeup (minus blush) with one tool.

I’m finally going for it! My goal is to make the Colourpop PR team!
First off, it’s hands down my favorite brand. I wound say 75-80% of what I own is Colourpop.
I love their products, believe they are great quality and most importantly (to me) they’re based and manufacture out of California.
I’ve learned so much in the time I’ve spent growing my social media. I’ve learned the confidence makeup can give a person, I’ve learned how makeup can bring strangers together and I’ve learned makeup can bring out so much in someone. I believe that Colourpop is a company that also understands and emphasizes this which is why I would love an opportunity to represent them.
I’m keeping all my fingers crossed and will continue to support the brand regardless, but wish me luck and hopefully this is a goal I can achieve this year!

I have to start by saying how surprised I am to have gotten my order so quickly!
Being such a Disney fan I knew I was going to get this as collection as soon as they announced it so I placed my order first thing Monday morning and by Tuesday evening (today) it was here!
I didn’t purchase the eyeshadow palette because I needed something to ask for as a Christmas present, lol!
The packaging on these is so beautiful.
ince they just arrived I haven’t had a chance to try everything so I’ll only be reviewing the Zero to Hero collection.
The highlight is a beautiful sheer Lilac highlight with a small amount of glitter. It’s a pressed highlight and does feel and look a little more powdery than their super shock highlights. I wasn’t able to get a good picture of a swatch but here are the swatches from Colourpop’s website
The collection includes highlights and blushes. If the blushes are anything like Colourpop’s typical pressed blush I know I’ll love them.
I was intrigued by the liquid lipsticks given that they’re a new “Lux Liquid Lipstick” formula
This is Wonderboy
I love the color and the feel is so soft! It feels almost moussey? It glides on very smoothly and pigmented. It has a very, very light smell, almost vanilla but it’s so light I might be making that up.
It isn’t transfer proof and I can tell I’ll have to reapply throughout the day but the formula feels light enough I don’t think I’ll mind.
Overall I would highly recommend the lux liquid lipstick and I’ll have to use the highlighters and blushes to see if I recommend them.
If you’re a Disney nut like me though, you’ll probably get the collection too!
I’m not typically comfortable with wearing blue eyeshadow but now that it’s baseball season I’ve stepped up my game for the sake of the Dodgers 😍Last season we didn’t go to any games so this season we’re definitely making up for it.Today’s look consisted of the following Colourpop single pressed shadows:Issues, Paper Tiger, Sea Stars, Popular Demand and Quantum SleepI would definitely recommend using a primer or white base for this. I’m halfway through the day and had to touch up my lid color.
