My Make-up Essentials

Hey, girls! Hope y'all had a great weekend! We didn't do much of anything on Saturday besides tuning into the Razorback/Ole Miss game. Our boys did NOT look their best and for a while, we definitely thought Ole Miss might take the game. We ended up making a comeback in the second half though and won - woot!

Next weekend, we take on Vanderbuilt, so hopefully we come out of the gates ready to whoop some tail : )

What I wore on Saturday to cheer on our Hogs!

So A LOT of you have followed up the eye makeup video tutorial with A LOT of questions about the rest of my face, haha. For the record, a lot of you asked about my hair too, which is really just a happy accident. Seriously, it looks different every day and I never really know from day to day how it's going to turn out. So, I dunno about vlogging that...

I am, however, more than happy to tell y'all what's on my face! Without further rambling, here's the list:

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Sand
2. Make-up Forever HD Powder
3. Smashbox HD Concealer in Fair/Light
4. Too Faced Sun Bunny Carribean in a Compact Bronzer
5. Nars blush in Angelika

Honestly, I spend more time on my skin than my eyes or lips. I really do think that a great base makes or breaks your make-up look, so I concentrate the majority of my time in the morning to creating a smooth, even complexion.

I use Lancome's Galatee Confort Comforting Milky Creme Cleaner and Mary Kay's Timewise Age Fighting Moisterizer Every. Morning. And. Night.

I also use Lancome's Genefique before my moisturizer to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles. My pale, Irish skin with freckles needs all the preventative help it can get, haha!

1 and 2. MAC Cosmetics Eye Shadows in Retrospeck and Satin Taupe
3. Revlon Luxurious Color Kohl Eyeliner in Black (Target or Wal-Mart should carry it.)
4. Make-Up Forever Smoky Lash mascara
5. LipFusion Infatuation in Lip Jolie
6. Loreal Hip Eyeshadow in Sculpted (Target or Wal-Mart should carry it.)

And there you have it!

Before I go, I need to say a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my husband/best friend/confidante/dad to our German Shepards/partner in crime/very own Tim Tebow look-alike, Stephen. I love you so much and am so excited to grow old and sit on porches with you. You are my heart, darling! 

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. Thanks so much for sharing your beauty secrets! :) I loved your eye makeup vlog the other day and shared it with lots of my girlfriends who are always asking me for makeup help! hah. And happy birthday to your husband! Hope you have a great Monday, Leslie!

  2. I just love the end of this post (not that I don't like the makeup part... because girly - I am going to take a ton of your advice and get some new makeup. I struggle with the even complexion business!)
    Have a very very happy birthday Stephen!!! I can't wait to hear about your guys' adventure growing old and living happily ever after!!!

  3. I LOVE the Mary Kay Moisturizer. It is never greasy and makes my skin so soft. I have been wanting to try the NARS blush. Several of my friends have recommended it. Happy birthday to your hubby! He does look a lot like Tim:)

  4. Do you use SPF and if so when do you put it on? Love the eye makeup vlog!

  5. Love it! Thanks so much for sharing!! I use the double wear foundation too and it's one of my favorites. I usually don't wear any make-up except mascara unless it's a special occasion, but I'm always needing new ideas.

    Hope you have a great day! And happy birthday to your husband!

  8. I LOOOVE these posts of yours. I'm always looking to try new makeup/skincare products, and it's definitely nice to have the seal of approval for particular M.A.C. eyeshadow colors before I buy them. Most are wonderful, but I've crashed and burned with a few. (Although I probably should have known that Chrome Yellow wouldn't be very lovely. :))

  9. Love that second pic of you and your man!

  10. I love your beauty tips! You always look so perfect and put together! I love it.

    You and your man are a great looking couple!


  11. Happy Birthday to your hubby :) Your two make me smile!

  18. ha! He's much better looking than Tim Tebow!

  19. Happy birthday to your hubs and thanks for all of the makeup links - I bookmarked a few! :)

  20. GIRL is that a dress... meaning is your outfit one piece purchased together or did you pair an adorable skirt w/ that hogs shirt. Either way absolutely fabulous and this Tide fan is jealous! I always think that Auburn, LSU, and Arkansas has the BEST gear and AL's is always a bit flat... minus the houndstooth which I adore. Such a rocking football fan you are! ox


What'cha got?
