8-Month Bullet Journal Update

No one asked, but here I am to give my 8-Month Bullet Journal Update. I have written a bit about bullet journaling in the past, like here and here. However, since we all know I don't go through with things, you all will be pleased to know that writing in and using my Bullet Journal has become a habit. I thought I would share what a typical spread looks like for me.

I start each month by creating a monthly calendar and writing in all my school-related assignments and activities. Everything has a distinct color, so it clicks into my mind what class it is for without having to write the name of the class.

Do you use a lighter concealer to highlight and cover blemishes?

I was reading a post by From Roses about an hour ago and she posted Four Ways to get a Perfect Base. At the end of the post, Rebecca asked "what are some ways you get a perfect base?" It had me thinking about something I do that many others do not, which is using two separate concealers: one that matched your skin tone and another that is lighter to highlight. Note: I also have a color correcting one, but that is another story. 

The concealers I am using at the moment are the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in "Ginger" and MAC Studio Finish Concealer in "NC42." I use "Ginger" to conceal/highlight my under eyes, my chin, and my nose. For "NC42," I use that to conceal around my nose and any blemishes and hyper pigmentation I might have.

February 2017 Favorites

Today starts my Spring Break where I will return home and do what I do at school: nothing. Just kidding, I do homework and stuff at school. It is really funny actually because I had photo assignments due on the first of March, it was like the 26th, and I was like, "yes! I have plenty of time to do them. Little did I remember February had 28 days. So you can imagine how that played out.

MAKEUP.

I made a mistake towards the middle of the month when I left my foundations at home. I was pretty chill about it because I was like, "I'll be back in two weeks." In that time I wore no makeup except for mascara, two days out of the fourteen days. In that time, I was thrown off my groove and was sent into a portal of makeup naivety. So this month, I wanted to highlight was my foundation ("you don't know how good you have it until it is gone" — Ken Bone). I have been using the Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in 108, or Caramel Beige. If you read my Laila Notes II, you would know my skin type changed from dry to oily/combination. What I like about this is that it stays on for the entire day and keeps my skin matte, except for my nose, where I need to touch up during the day.
