Contest Alert!

We will be having our biggest contest to date at Breakups to Makeup throughout the month of November and I am extremely excited. Winners will not only have the chance of adding a set (that's right not one but FOUR) Breakups to Makeup clutches to their collection, but they will also be able to show off their go-to items. I love doing contests but always with a purpose. I want followers to be able to learn from one another especially in the beauty world! We will be displaying our favorite pictures throughout the month of November on Breakups to Makeup's Instagram and the contest itself ends at the end of the month.

Above is my own flat lay, displaying all of my go-to items right now. (Full disclosure: I do not actually carry hot sauce in my bag, it's a little sneak peek of things to come, but yes I do carry Splenda). Right now I'm low maintenance as I'm constantly running around between work and the baby. I do my makeup at home and this is what I grab to on the go. I love clean skin & a lip focus.

Products Displayed:

Makeup clutch: Breakups to Makeup

Aquaphor healing ointment: I use this for both myself and the baby. I love it on my lips and it works really well on his cuts & scratches.

Lucas' Papaw Ointment: I use this on my lips, I especially love it right now during the weather change.

Garnier Ultra Lift Eye Roller: I use this underneath my eyes to give them a bit of a perk throughout the day. I love the coolness of the roller especially when I'm tired.

Tabasco Hot Sauce: I don't actually carry this in my purse, but it is a bit of a teaser of things to come within the line.

Smashbox Cosmetics Halo Wand: I use this underneath my makeup before leaving the house but I also like to carry it with me to give myself a little "pick me up" in the middle of the day. I apply it on my cheekbones, bridge of nose & bow of lip to instantly feel revived.

Temptu True Color Lipstick in "Imperial Red": I love the mattene finish of this lipstick and like to use it if I'm doing more of a lip focus or a quick change between day and evening makeup. It's an easy go to as I usually don't wear a lip liner with it and it lasts a long time.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tar in Lament: this one is an oldie but goodie. I like to apply a small drop with my finger to give my lip a bit of a stain. I love the longevity of the product.

Splenda: I love me some coffee and when I'm on set it's sometimes hard to find my favorite sweetener so I carry it with me.
