A Triumphant Return With A Tag...

Though morning sickness is still taking a major toll on me and so is my lighting, trust me when I say there is much work going on behind the scenes of the EricaLeigh777 Youtube Channel. It's seems no matter what I try the videos never turn out where you can quite see what I'm doing. So there continues to be much tweaking behind the scenes this week as I am trying my best to get a new makeup video to you. And I want to say thank you to all of you who have asked about me and missed me. I appreciate it more than you know. Since I'm at my wits end with the camera for tonight, I thought I would find a way to update this thing. In my search for something to write I came across this tag (an old tag) that I wasn't particularly tagged for but I wanted to do it anyway and I thought it would be a neat way to get people up to speed on what I am enjoying at the moment. Let me know your thoughts and favorites in the comments...


FAVORITES OF THE MOMENT

Shampoo: Just switched back to using Herbal Essences Hello Hydration after a Dove Shampoo and Conditioner Duo made a mess of my hair. :( Sad becuase I love most Dove just not that one. The blue bottled one with the repairing serum if you are wondering.

Conditioner: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeppp

Styling products: Aussie Shine Hairspray, Coconut Oil, Chi Silk Infusion, Got2B Glued gel(the gel I use very watered down for when I want to embrace my natural curl)

Shower Gel: The new Caress shower gel in Evenly Gorgeous

Body moisturizer: Palmers Cocoa Butter Lotion and Palmers Shea Butter Stretch Mark Lotion (Trying to keep this growing belly from leaving it's mark.)

Deodorant: Degree

Fake Tan: None and it's killing me. Up until I started youtube I was never pale and now since I have I'm always white as a ghost. It's odd.

Cleanser: Just my shower gel at the moment waiting on Philosophy Purity Made Simple in the mail because I can't use my beloved Acne Free While Pregnant. :(

Exfoliator: St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Primer: Monistat Anti- Chafing Gel and Milk of Magnesia on my Oily T-Zone

Foundation brush: ELF Studio Flat Top Powder Brush but really I have been using the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge more and more. I have the older blue one and it is fantastic!

Concealer: I have never been a concealer person unless I was wearing Mineral Makeup but I am planning on picking one up soon. Unfortunately, I have rosacea and I am having to go up one foundation shade just to cover the red so I need to pick up a green one. Already have one in mind too.

Powder: Maybelline Dream Matte Powder...The stuff is a lifesaver for oily skin!

Blusher: New York Color Mosaic Color Wheel Blush in the pink shade

Bronzer: I don't really like bronzer. :S

Highlighter: MAC Perfect Topping MSF and ELF All Over Color Stick in the Highlighting shade

Eyeshadow base: UDPP or MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

Eyeshadows: Hmm, Different Everyday lol

Eyeliner: Shanaz Hussain Liquid Eyeliner You can make the thinnest line with this ever!

Curler: I have a cheapo dollar store one I have had for years but barely ever use it.

Mascara: Revlon Double Twist in Waterproof I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!

Lipstick: Changes too often to tell :D

Lipgloss: NYC Plumping Gloss in (cant remember the shade exactly) the lightest pink color, have been using this for years and will continue to love it!

Nail Color: Orly Country Club Khaki, The prettiest color under the sun.


Hope you enjoyed catching up on what I'm liking as of now. Much love, God Bless you and yours and have a Blessed Halloween Holiday!
