Friday Faves

Hi Lovelies!

Rachel and I are considering doing a Friday Faves link up so if you have a blog
and would like to showcase your "favorite things" on Friday's let me know!!

Last night I was with some girlie friends at this place in Homewood called Jackson's.
It is a great little hangout place that has an awesome patio area to sit outside.
We had gumbo, crab cake sandwiches, a hamburger omelet, buffalo chicken feathers,
and steak and cheese sandwich!!! YUM. Love that place. Hungry yet?!

Anyway, my friend Holly started asking me make-up questions. She was like... how do you
get your eye shadow to stay put all day long? How does your foundation and blush
still look good and hasn't sweated off? Well, I proceeded to say... I did do a small
touch up before I met them, BUT there are some great products that help your make-up
looking fresh and more put together all day long!

For your face use a primer before you put your foundation or powder on that will
help minimize your fine lines and pores and help make-up stay in place and not run.

Brightening Formula. This really just gives your foundation or powder
something to stick to and give your face more lasting power!
Retails @ Sephora for $30.

For lasting eyeshadow I have two faves! The first is another Urban Decay product.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is amazing! I have been using this
since spring and I have been so impressed with my eyeshadow lasting all day long.
This is a clear cream that you apply to your eyes before you put on any eyeshadow..
let it dry and then apply.
Retails @ Sephora for $19.
The shadow that my friend, Holls, was asking about last night is one of my new
faves!! Make-Up Forever has Aqua Cream that can serve as a shadow on it's own
or a great primer/base. It is a water proof formula so it ain't going no where!
Retails @ Sephora for $22.

Yikes on this color!! I have 3 of these creams. Shade 2, 13, and 15. Shade 13
is a gorgeous champagne shimmer color that is light enough to use as a base and add
some other shades mixed in. Last night I used shade 13 on my lid, then applied a darker
pink/champagne color from a Wet N Wild Palette to add some dimension and then
took a matte brown in my crease. Very pretty and fresh looking!

Let me know what you think about this segment and what you are interested in
learning more about.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Have you tried the mineral eyeshadow primer from e.l.f.? I think it's pretty comparable to Urban Decay's PP and it's only $1!!!!! Can't beat that.


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
