Welcome :)

So I've been toying around with the idea for this blog for a while now. I am fairly positive this blogs going to be neglected from time to time, but I'm going to try and update it on my days off from work.

I'm Jami. I'm a full time mother, full time wife, and full time worker. I'm busy.  My makeup routine usually takes place in 5 minutes right before I run out the door for work. I don't remove my makeup at night, I don't wash my face, I don't have high brand makeup.

Well...I should say 'didn't'.

Thats what this is all about. I really want to take the time to do something for me. I want a collection all to myself. 

I started out by upgrading my makeup holder. Sad to say for a looong time all my makeup was being held by a ziplog bag.

This is what I've got right now. I'm pretty proud of my little collection thats grown in a few short months, and hopefully will continue.

Much better, and much more functional. My collections grown a little since this last picture, and I'll have to update with pictures of the inside.

Annnnd not only am I starting to venture out there with makeup, I finally opened a jar of facial moisturizer a friend gave me about a year ago. ( I hope its still good lol) Its Estee Lauder Hydra Complete. I figured I'd start with that to get a routine down before I venture on to other products. :)

& Lastly.

I thought I'd show just how important makeup is to me. It makes all the difference in the way that I look, and in my mood. I'm a real girl. I don't wake up in the morning, or hop out of the shower and look instantly beautiful. Mama needs some help. 

Here's a little before and after of me this morning.
Kinda scary right?

On my face I used:

Stila Tinted Moisturizer :light 03
Maybelline Fit me! Bronzer
MAC Blush Cream : Posey
MAC Paint Pot : Painterly
MAC Fabulously Festive Face Kit/ Warm
Jouer Gloss : Birchbox Pink (not really sure if thats the name of the color, but it came in my december box )
