Makeup Madness

Posted by Nicole

I’m finally done with the semester! Such sweet relief.

My morning started at 6 AM, which gave me plenty of time to shower, eat breakfast, and calmly walk to campus.

Not gonna lie, I always feel productive when I wake up to a sunrise!

Then, I did a few last minute practice problems and took my test. All the build-up definitely made turning in the exam even better.


I was extra excited to finish my final because the rest of the day was filled with fun plans.

1- Post-final Starbucks trip. Deserved it!!!


2- Our dance team recently got a makeup sponsor and today we got all the goods to make us beautiful. New mascara, eyeshadows, lipstick, skin care products, and bronzer. Also, we each got a consultation and complimentary concealer/powder and blush specific to our skin tones. It was like an early Christmas!



3- Soraya, one of the dance captains, and I went to the mall afterwards so she could pick up a Secret Santa gift for tonight. I love the view from the Beverly Center – the Hollywood sign and Downtown LA skyline all in one place.

4- After a late lunch, I headed to the gym to half-ass a workout. 4 miles of incline walking (6%) while reading blogs did the trick. It felt good to move.


5- Now it’s time for me to get dolled up for our dance team dinner, gift exchange, and Christmas party! Dressing up is always so fun and it feels like forever since I put on a fancy dress and heels. I’m actually bringing my real camera out tonight instead of just my iPhone, so the next post will surely be filled with some good photos. Woo!

Hope your week is going well… 6 days till Christmas!


Question: Since this was a kinda girly post- What is your favorite makeup brand and/or product?

Some of my favorites:

makeup favorites

  • Benefit Coralista blush and Hoola bronzer – these come especially in handy during the paler winter months
  • Mac eyeshadows are great too – I used to collect them!
  • Maybelline Ultra Liner liquid eyeliner – affordable and it lasts a long time!
  • Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes – good for travel because they have a bit of everything

    Chanel is my favorite, though I only receive it as gifts. As I’m a grad student and am currently SPONSORLESS!! Brutal, but true.

    So pumped that we’re both done. Question…how is it drinking a hot drink out of a straw? I’ve seen so many people who do it, but I’ve always wondered haha. Hope your Christmas festivities were a blast!

      It took a while to get used to, but it’s not bad! I’m just worried about staining my teeth so I try to drink as much tea, coffee, and soda out of a straw as I can!
