Today I have Amy guest posting!

Hello! I'm Amy from You Will Rejoice. Even though I love to browse through pages of beauty magazines, I can't always afford all the designer makeup brands I would love to own. Carisa is hosting a series of guest posters who feature their affordable, drugstore, beauty necessities. Thanks Carisa for this great idea, I'm excited to hear what others have to contribute too!

Here are my essentials:

I usually buy all these products at either Meijer, Walgreens, or Target.

1. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser [$7.99]

// I love this facewash! I use it every evening and morning. It's gentle and doubles as a makeup remover. One pump (a dime size amount) is enough to wash your face. And, a bottle usually lasts me two-three months.
2. Neutrogena oil-free Moisture [$8.99]

// I've been using this face moisturizer for over two years and it's never failed me. It's oil-free and always leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. It also has SPF 15, so I'm always protected from the sun, even if I forget to wear sunscreen. I use a pea-sized dollop of moisturizer every morning and evening (after I wash my face) and a bottle lasts me 4-5 months.

3. L'Oreal Eyesahdow in Canyon Stone [$3.99]

// These colors are what I use for my base eye shadow. I highlight my eyebrow arches with #1 and #2 and then use #3 and #4 for accentuation and blending.

4. L'Oreal Hip concentrated shadow duo in Saucy [$3.99]

//I use this combination of light and dark brown shadow to add some shimmer to my eyelids. It's light and not too glamorous for everyday wear, which is nice!

***I recently did splurge by buying Clinique foundation, powder, and blush, but until then, I hadn't worn any foundation coverage. I was too nervous to trust myself buying drugstore foundation and powder--I didn't know if I could match my skin, or even what brands or specific products to try! So, I caved and went to the Clinique counter at Macy's, where a very nice lady matched my skin and helped me pick out products. However, it was a pricy splurge.  I'm hoping that someone else does guest post that features affordable and reliable foundation, powder, and blush so I can transition to a more affordable option!

Now make sure you go check out Amy's blog and show her some love!
Also she has a sweet Etsy store that you should check out {here}

I love Neutrogena face wash. I also definitely have to try out the Loreal eye shadow. I use browns on my eyes everyday and I'm running low on my current shadow. Great post!
Also, interested in swapping blog buttons. I just figured out how to make one with a grab box. Head on over to my blog and check it out.

Hi I am stopping over from Emmy June's blog. I think it's awesome that you did such a budgeted honeymoon - and I have always wanted to go to New Orleans. Even more now that you can drink beer anywhere - perfect.

Hey chica! Thanks again for sharing your New Orleans trip :) I'm getting very inspired to check out the South.
