FOTD Super Quick Makeup Tutorial

I’m terrible at getting ready in the morning. If I know I don’t have to see anyone until the afternoon I will stay barefaced and wear track pants until the last minute. That means I usually have only 10 minutes or less to throw on my makeup for a meeting or event.

Sephora Haul Header

It has been sooooo long since I have seen the inside of a Sephora and I been thirsty for a taste of that sweet, sweet Sephora experience. Whenever I am lucky enough to make it over to the USA I always buy a Sephora gift card of some stupid amount so that when I get back home I can still place an order (damn them and not accepting international credit cards) and send it to a friend.

Today I have my Sephora haul to show you and I am hoping it will be one of many in 2013. Realistically, it is highly unlikely but a girl can dream.
