My favorite beauty products!

As most of you know I work part time at Sephora, so the amount of makeup/skincare/haircare that I get for free is out of control. With that said, I still have my trusty favorite products that I purchase, despite having many other options available! 
The products I use regularly are a mix between Sephora and MAC, I have worn MAC for years and so many of my favorites are from MAC...Shhhh, don't tell ;)
I searched for years for a primer that would actually make my makeup stay on all day! This is pricey, but it does the trick! Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
I've worn this foundation for years, I've tried a number of different ones throughout the years, but always go back to this!
 Old faithful! The best full coverage powder foundation I've ever tried! MAC Studio Fix
The Benefit rep gave us all this to try when the released it earlier this year. It has quickly become my favorite blush for everyday. Benefit Hervana

A close second would be MAC's Prism. It's my go to in the winter months!

Urban Decay Primer Potion. Does the best job of any eyeshadow primer I've ever tried!

This quad is an old MAC Limited Edition, but my favorite color from it is in their permanent line. This is MAC's Tempting Quad. I don't use the green, but the bronzey/gold on the top right is Tempting, and is definitely my favorite MAC shadow!

This is the original Naked palate, and my favorite of the two. I like the more brown neutrals in this one.
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero...Black, black, black, and stays, stays, stays! Enough said!
Benefit's They're Real...Aaaaamazing! Makes my lashes look insane! Definitely a favorite!

MAC lipliner in Plum

MAC Lipstick in Hue. Gorgeous neutral!

MAC Lipglass in Borealis. I think this is Limited Edition color also, but its a gorgeous clear gloss with an iridescent shimmer. Perfect on top of my favorite lipstick.
If you have any questions about any of my favorite products feel free to message me. By no means am I saying these products will preform as fabulously for you as they do for me, but they're all great products that are worth trying out. 
With that said, these are my opinions about products that I purchased on my own, or received as part of my gratis at Sephora. No company has requested this post, or asked me to mention any of these products :)

Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday!

I've been itching to do a few home decor updates since it looks like Nate and I will be staying in our current house a little longer than I would like we had anticipated, so I plan to spruce a few things up and make our time there a little nicer to look at. Of course I have found 4,657 ideas on Pinterest, so today I'm linking up with Michelle for...
The first thing will be some new curtains for the living room. I'm either thinking a bold stripe or a chevron patter.

I love these frames! Add some black & white photos and you're set!

I'd die for a Farmhouse table, the space we're in now isn't big enough, but one day I"ll have one!

I love this rug

I need to do this before I do any of the above/below improvements!!

I love all the white, and that rug!

I need that HUGE frame, and that piece of furniture ASAP

We have a small bathroom, so improvements like updating the mirror and hand towels/shower curtain make a big difference!

I did a little work on the closets a few weeks ago, but they could probably stand another purge!  I dream of a closet this organized!
I hope y'all are having a great week! Go link up with Michelle today!

It's been forever since I've linked up with Jaime for What I'm Loving Wednesday, but I'm loving so many things right here ya go :)

I'm loving...That I've got a hot date with some of my girlfriends Sunday afternoon to have Sushi and see The Vow

I'm loving...The Breaking Dawn comes out on DVD Friday...Taylor and Channing in one weekend...yes please!

I'm loving...That fishing tournament season is finally here! Nate took second place in his first tournament last weekend, and brought home a nice little check ;) 

I'm loving...That this Saturday night Nate and I are going to a benefit for the local Children's hospital his Dad works at. I found a beautiful dress, and he got fitted for his tux yesterday! I'm ready to get all dressed up and have an amazing time! Not to mention it's the Chocolate Fantasy Ball...with signature Chocolate Martinis and chocolates EVERYWHERE!

I'm loving...That wedding planning is really coming together and all the major things are crossed off my list...I'm just so ready to marry my best friend!

I'm loving...These pins from Pinterest this week!
We will have a farmhouse table when we get a house!

I need this in my life <3


On another note...I'm considering starting Weight Watchers this week. Any one have a success story, or any tips? Also what's the difference between points and points plus? 

I hope y'all are having a great week! Y'all go link up with Jamie today!
