I haven’t shared my updated makeup routine in a while, like years, because it hasn’t changed much until now! I use different brushes and products that have changed my makeup look and feel. One of the biggest changes is this eyeshadow pallet!

If you have followed along since I started tutorials, you know that I only have one eyeshadow pallet and I have had it for a couple years. I FINALLY found THIS one by Too Faced (Natural Love Pallet) that is worth spending money on! In my experience, it is far worth the money to invest in nicer eye shadows for a couple reasons: they last SO much longer, way easier to use, and the colors are so much easier to wear.

I am still not able to film these tutorials for y’all but that is coming in the future! I didn’t take pictures of the steps for my foundation routine or contour routine but it is very similar to my previous one here. The tools and products have changed to the ones I list above!

Eyes are the number one question I get asked about, how do I do my eyeshadow! Today, I am sharing how you can easily take simple steps from this pallet to create an everyday eye look that a makeup artist could have done! It’s simple and STUNNING!

SIMPLE STUNNING EYE:

1. I used THIS primer on my face before my foundation. Let me tell you, it is my go to now! It’s the perfect consistency for Summer when my skin tends to dry out really bad.

2. Prime Eyelids: I used this primer!

All eyeshadows used are from THIS pallet!



3. Set Primer: I used Spotlight shadow to set my primer from my lash line to my eyebrow.

4. Press in Moonbeam from your lash line to the crease of your brow bone. I use a flat concealer brush for this.

5. Sweep Nudie on your crease for the perfect transition color. This helps to not have any harsh lines or color changes on your lids. A lot more natural looking. I use THIS brush.



6. Lightly blend Smokin’ into the outside “v” of your eyelid, a long your lash line, and about 1/3 of the way into your crease. I use THIS brush.



7. I took Poodle with my index finger and pressed it into the corner of my eyes to make them pop as well as the arch of my brow for highlight.

8. Line your lash line with a cat eye or a simple line. THIS is my holy grail liquid eyeliner pen, seriously. I just had to replace it after a year!

9. Finish off your eyes with 2-3 coats of my FAVORITE mascara! This has been my go-to for about 4 years and that isn’t changing anytime soon.

This is with one coat on the left-hand side and none on the right-hand side.
Hello, long beautiful real lashes!

PS the first time Jason heard me say the name of this mascara, he thought I made it up!



10. To finish off the whole look, I used this melted liquid lipstick in Holy Chic for the perfect nude. I am obsessed with this liquid lip, it’s more of a mousse texture when you apply it. It dries quickly and the best part, it didn’t make my lips peel! Now I want all the colors lol!

I have used this pallet consistently every day for about 2 weeks and LOVE all the colors. Some of them are bold but they are all in a natural tone so they can be worn so many ways. If you are looking for a new eyeshadow pallet or need to replace one that doesn’t give you the right colors, RUN and get this one.

I am not kidding when I say I use 1 eye shadow pallet for years and years.
This one changed that for me!

Thank you for supporting the brands that make T&P possible! xoxo, Nicholle

Secret Discount Beauty and Health Care Spot | Haul

I have been frequenting this store since I was a child with my mom. It’s a hidden gem for discounted beauty and health care products that people are unaware of. Plus, it’s an inexpensive way to try new products! 



Shopping on a budget is a MUST! Especially when it comes to beauty and healthcare because a fortune can be spent on these products. I love specific brands for specific reasons so I look for these brands on a budget. One of my favorite places to find these products is at Grocery Outlet.

Here is a $3 coupon as well! $3 can go long ways!

I am taking you along for the ride today to see what is all covered and what I bought for under $30! 

Grocery Outlet is a great place to not only find the products you know you already love on a discount but to also try out products you hear of but don’t want to pay full price for to try out. I find some of the best products here that I can’t find anywhere else. I found a new dry shampoo for $2 off the regular price!

Have I convinced you that you are missing out yet?!

Here is what I found for under $30:

Herbal Essence Dry Shampoo $3.99

I had never tried this product before but I can’t live without my dry shampoo! I LOVE the smell of this one and it didn’t turn my hair white.

White Pen $2.99

This is my FAVORITE micellar water to use. I use this to take off my eye makeup as well as cleanse my face first thing in the morning.


Peach Body Scrub $0.99

I use this in the shower to exfoliate my arms and legs before I shave. It helps to get a much closer shave.

MAY Favorites | Monthly Roundup

This is the first of my monthly favorites where I will be sharing new products that I HAVE tried or are GOING to try! I hope this gives you some ideas on new products to use. 

May has been a full month of working full time. I realized I was behind on sharing new products with all y’all so I decided to try it in a May monthly Favorites blog post. This is how I will be sharing my new favorite products with y‘all in the future. This will be a great reference for you each month of all things new to try!  PS how is May already over?!

May Monthly Favorites:

Dermoligica: I haven’t yet been able to try this set out but I have only heard amazing things! I am anxious to try the cleanser and replenishing oil! What’s picutered here is a full skincare line of: Special Celansing Gel, Daily Microfoliant, Phyto Replenishing Oil, Pre-Cleanse, Active Moist, and Hydrblur Primer.

Aveda: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dry shampoo. The bottle is kind of funny to use. You shake it so the powder goes to the top and then you press the top and it sort of shoots the powder on your hair. I didn’t have to use too much and it worked amazingly! I haven’t tried the Thermal Dry Conditioner yet, but I am anxious too!

 

 

Coola: BEST SUMMER MAKEUP EVER. I have been living with this primer on my skin since my typical foundation does not have SPF in it. This primer reminds me of all the tropical places I need to visit lol! I have used this BB cream as well, it’s light coverage so when I am at home it’s perfect. It is buildable since it dries pretty matte! I will be using this a lot when camping this Summer.

Pixi by Petra: This is such an affordable luxury brand in my opinion. It’s sold at Target but it’s quality far exceeds drug store quality. I love their setting sprays! The Glow Tonic To-Go is an exfoliating toner on cotton pads so it’s quick and easy. I love these! I have used the Glow Serum and love the way it makes my skin appear the next day. The Glow Mud Cleanser and Peel & Polish mask I haven’t used yet, but will let you know when I do!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Charming Charlie: I am obsessed with these earrings! I cannot find them online but they are under $15 and come in so many colors!

Derma E: This Micellar water is super intriuging! I love my micellar water so I am excited to try this. I will let you know if I like it better then my go to. This cleansing oil looks amazing as well. Rose is great for inflamation which = my face 24/7…thanks adult acne.

 

Patchology: This poshpeel is actually the product I am the most excited to try! I love having baby soft skin. This peel soaks on your feet and then will peel your feet from 3-7 days. This illuminating mask is going to come in handy as well, I need some help with my dull skin. These masks are some of my faovrite but I think you already know that 😉

 

The Starfish Project: This company raising funds for women and children esacping trafficing and exploitation. If there is any where you should treat yourself with a piece of jewlery, it’s here. To be influentail in another persons life is amazing, especially when it feeds them and provides a roof over their head. This necklace purchase will provide the income for 1 day to a woman who has escaped trafficing. The purchas of this bracelet will provide room and board at a shelter for a week to a woman who has escaped.

Supergoop: New favorite all over suncreen. It’s a mousse which means it applies easier and is perfect for getting an even applicaiton. It’s also hubby approved!

 

BAUBLEBAR: Bring on the Summer turquoize jewelry! These stacking necklaces are a super big trend right now. I always struggle with them being too tight around my neck so I use THIS extender. This nekclace is already one of my favorites! Wear it with a tee and you are good to go. I also am swooning over these earrings. Hello tassles and large statement earrings, you have my name written all over you. PS they are not heavy either! Winning!

Givenchy: I love my Givenchy makeup! This blush duo has given me all the heart eyes for Spring and Summer. It’s the perfect mix of pink and peach. These two nude lipticks: 5 and 6, are perfect compliment for an everyday look. I am obsessed with number 5!!

 

Colorscience: Finally a face sunscreen that doens’t break me out! I can apply it over my makeup and repeatedly thoughout the day without messing up my makeup underneath. This is a complete game changer. I haven’t tried the brightener yet, but I am sure it’s as amazing as the sunscreen!

Starbucks Pink Drink (Full outfit HERE): Because I am obsessed and have had way too many this month. If you haven’t tried it, buy one. It’s an acai refresher mixed with coconut milk and strawberries. It’s official name is “The Pink Drink” so don’t feel silly when you order it. My hubby always says it like a question because he thinks I made the name up!  

Let me know what else you would like to see!

These items were sent to me for my review. I will always give you my 100% honest opion on produts. I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
