MakeUp of the Day

Looking Joli Good

Here is another day using these awesome makeup products!  I am so glad that I got the Fireball Urdan decay eyeshadow in my ipsy glam bag.  It quickly became one of my favorites.  The Mad for Matte ELF eye sadow palette is such a great one, and for only $10 it is a must have!  If you haven’t tried out the Almay smar shade yet, you need too!
