Makeup of the Day | February 14th, 2018 – Valentines Day + Wal-Mart Haul

MOTDHappy day after Valentine’s Day! I wanted to share the actual makeup look I ended up wearing for Valentine’s. We celebrated with an early lunch and running errands so I kept it kind of tame.

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

I went with a fairly simple halo eye using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Palette. I did a small wing with Colourpop Cream Liner in Best O and Colourpop Lippie Stick in Lumiere topped with Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Finders Keepers. I’ll list all the products and details below.

We did Valentine’s Day lunch because no crowds for one thing and my husband was getting off nights and had to stay up for a doctor’s appointment. Luckily our favorite Mexican spot opens at 10:30 am. We had taco salads and flan once again. The addiction is real.


IMG_20180214_121231_077After lunch, we had errands to run and his appointment so after the errands I had him drop me and the big Wal-Mart because I needed velvet hangers and a few odds and ends. I spent over 2 hours walking around and looking at everything in the damn store. I don’t go to the big Wal-Mart often because I hate the crowds so when I do go, I look at everything and try to find some good deals cause why not?

Before I get into the haul, let’s rant a minute. Fuck these “I Dressed from Wal-Mart/Kmart” challenge videos. That is so incredibly rude and just fucked. I buy clothes from Wal-Mart, Kmart before they closed, Target and JCP all the time. I don’t give a shit if it says Gucci on it. If it’s a nice piece that makes sense in my wardrobe and works with my style I buy it. Nobody in the real world has even turned they nose up at me for wearing a Wal-Mart top. I mean, I do live in Central LA and we don’t have Nordstrom here but we have high-end stores and plenty of access to high-end goods. We don’t live under a rock. I dunno, I just hate that L.A. mentality. I personally I would rather buy high-end skincare and makeup than clothes but that is just me. I am more about makeup and clothes. I also would rather spend money on better investments. I’m redoing my studio and office this year and investing in that. I will be doing a tour once it’s done because it has been a long time coming and a lot of trial and error to create a perfect office/beauty room/ and studio that I can also share with my husband and he can feel at home in. Lucky we have similar tastes. Anyway, back to haul.

Here’s what I picked up at Wal-mart.

First stop was beauty of course.

I picked up the new Maybelline Superstay Foundation to try out and review, new setting spray, brow pencil from Wet N Wild and an another Liquid Catsuit from Wet N Wild. I love those so much. I also grabbed a couple hydrating face masks cause…FB_IMG_1518610977132

While I was looking for hangers I found these gold baskets on clearance. Perfect for new office/beauty space. This was a set of two for guess how much?

A flipping $1!!! If they had more I would have bought them all. I did buy all the black velvet hangers they had… 20180215_152726 (2)

I went in on the clearance stuff girl, I love a deal. I am frugal AF. LOL.

I found this cute sweater with lace-up detail for around 7 bucks. Hell yeah. I love sweaters. I’m one of those people who are always cold so sweaters are my BFF.


I also picked up this basic black tee for around 3 bucks regular price. I am on a kick with tucking a basic tee into my jeans with a belt kinda look and this one is perfect for that.


Next, I found this awesome super comfy yoga bra for $5. Yes, please. I want to go back and get more because I wore this all day today and have been in boob comfort heaven.


I also found a nice jacket for Ross for $13 and him a star wars hoodie for around the house for only $11. He was quite pleased with them. I have been trying to find him a basic jacket for a while for a decent price in case he wore it to work and it got messed up. These are unfortunately polyester so he can’t wear them to work, they can only wear cotton because they work around a lot of hot things. He works at a power plant and has to be around chemicals like acids and boiling pipes and boilers so cotton is safest. The hunt for work wear is constant because things get burned from hot ash or chemicals often.

The rest of V-day was spent doing a face mask and going to bed stupid early. BTW, Pumpkin got a new toy for V-day. She’s getting new beds soon too.

Today, I tried out the new Maybelline foundation, and so far I love it. This was a pretty low key day. IMG_20180215_150259_800

We went to Chik Fil A and Starbucks/Target and I picked up this cute little mirror for the office.


Then we hung out with friends for a bit and grabbed some dinner. 20180215_184724.jpg

This evening we made some progress on office stuff, a new computer is on the way for Ross. A tablet for me soon and I’m switching from a laptop to a desktop and getting a tablet. So excited! Getting everything clean, less cluttered and streamlined.

I was planning on going to bed and finishing this up tomorrow but I couldn’t sleep so here we are.

Who else wants to pick up the ABH Soft Glam? I kinda feel like I need her.

Another project I have been working on the last few days has been redoing our closet. We moved a bookcase into it for storage. It looks pretty cool. But yeah that was why I needed more hangers. Hang all the things. Since I watched Jaclyn Hill’s closet tour I was so inspired to get organized. I feel like a lot of people were more inspired by the items in her closet, I was more inspired by the organization.

Anyway, that’s all for today. Time to focus on the skincare review. I’m a little burned out on skincare reviews TBH. At least this one was pretty good and I have some thoughts on it. Tomorrow night is girls night so I will have some more makeup pics to share for sure.
