Imperfection is Beauty (1)

Ok, so like I say in my video below, I am really wanting (and loving) to incorporate more of ME into the blog. Not just my love of books but all the other things that make up the loves of my life. This brings me to make-up and fashion. Again, like I say in the video, I've had a lot of trial and error but I feel like I know what's up and what works for me and I love to share any tips or products I have. Thus, I stole my feature name from the above Marilyn Monroe quote. I'm not perfect, I am not a makeup artist, I make tons of mistakes, but I just love makeup. I have yet to incorporate my OBSESSION with clothes into a post but I'm brainstorming. I'm thinking I need to invest in a good full-length mirror and doing like a look book of the week. Posting pics of my outfits and what I'm loving...thoughts? 

I digress. This post is all about MAKE-UP! Yay! I love make-up. I love creating a look that goes with my outfit or just because I feel like wearing my new eye shadow or lipstick. Love love love putting on my makeup and taking time with it. I wanted to start off with some of my all-time favorite products so without further ado, here is my video. Let me know what you guys think!

...So?...What do we think?...
Do you have favorite makeup products you love and swear by?


  1. I love that you did this! I love love love makeup. I used to work at CVS in high school and was constantly buying the new products that came out. I also just discovered a Harmons near my gym and bought some new stuff. This is what I'm liking:

    - Maybelline whispers: it's a light lipstick/gloss and it's pretty! I like it when I don't wear any makeup.
    - Clinique Black Honey lipstick? I have been buying this religiously for awhile. It looks super dark but it sort of changes to match your skin tone? Love it.
    - I used BB Creme for my face & I've been using Dr. Jarts? The bottle lasts forever and I think it's cleared up my skin a lot. (I had a ton of hormonal acne a few years ago, and it was embarrassing so I'm very concerned about my skin.)
    - I can't say enough good stuff about the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I love that they are so easy to travel with and I love all the colors.

    I think that's all I have to contribute right now. But I love love love this. :) So fun to hear about other stuff & I'm always listening for new skincare products so I'm going to keep Boscia on my radar. (Right now, I'm actually using Aveeno from the drug store and it's been really great.)

  2. Loved this! I hardly ever wear makeup since I normally run out the door with wet hair and scrubs BUT i miss wearing it more! I also love the Baby lips chapstick! I have it in... i forget what color. it comes in a purple tube. I also love VS eye shadows!! I always get them and then don't use them enough. I really want to check out the NARS tinted moisturizer! i mean i guess i won't be living in vegas much longer but my skin gets SO dry there plus SPF def needed there!!

    I really like the Julep kajal eye glider too!

  3. HERE WE GO. I LOVE THIS POST. I also LOVE makeup and some faves areeeeeeee: NYX Matte Bronze [when going cheaper] and Hoola by Benefit. Eye shadow I LOVE Mac's SABLE and JEST. Andddddd my favorite mascara of the moment is Voluminous in blackest black!

    I must try that flat kabuki! I use my Bare Essentials Kabuki but it HAS seen better DAYS!

  4. LOVE THIS POST! I have wanted that Sigma flat kabuki for awhile now, glad to know that you love it :D I love bronzer but I only wear it in the middle of a heat wave because that's the only time I get even a small amount of color ... I'm insanely pale and it just doesn't look right on me, sadly :( I love eyeshadow and blush though ... and lipsticks. Gosh, the bain of my existence will be lipsticks lol. I love Revlon Lip Butters, especially now because this deathly winter is terrible for dry lips. My favorite eye shadows are Stila and Urban Decay. OOHHH and I love Benefit cosmetics :)

    I hope you do so many more of these posts Kelly!!! I LOVE MAKEUP !!! OH! And I do love the burt's bees lip balms as well :D And yes, please do a beauty haul post!!
