Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

My lip collection isn’t too big and there’s a very good reason for it. I don’t wear too many different shades! As you’ll be able to see from my swatches, I either go dark and sultry or extremely nude. I don’t have much of an in between. My everyday go-to lip color is of course the nudes. I only break out the dark or red shades for special events! My current favorite right now is this NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Push-Up. They have a great formula and I’m planning on getting some more shades here soon.

Current Obsession – Calligraphy

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

You know I love sharing my recent obsessions with you. This new obsession is something I’ve discovered through Instagram. I’ve fallen in love with watching calligraphy videos. I’m an artsy person but OMG I seriously don’t know how these artists write so beautifully. It’s honestly mesmerizing to watch. I sit on Instagram binge watching these videos and then all the sudden it’s an hour later. But I LOVE it! I’ll link my favorite account here. I highly recommend creeping on the page because they always tag the artists and give them credit for their work (which I really appreciate)! I’d love to try out calligraphy, until I remember how much of a perfectionist I am. I feel like I wouldn’t have the patience to practice my writing that much. What do you guys think? Should I give it a try?

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Too Faced.JPG

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Let’s talk about cult favorite Too Faced Born This Way Foundation because it receives non-stop hype all over the internet. This foundation is a medium coverage very natural looking foundation, not too matte and not too dewy. I’ve been using this foundation for the past year or so now and I will NEVER go back. It’s often rare that I try an overly hyped product and actually like it. This foundation is amazing and I love the way it makes my skin look.

My skin type is more normal/combination and this foundation does a great job not looking greasy in my T-zone and not clinging to my dry patches in other areas. I’m also a very freckled lady so I love that this foundation still let’s my skin look natural with the freckles peeking through. I hate complete full coverage foundations because my whole body is covered in freckles and then it just makes my face look like someone stole a porcelain doll’s head and plucked it on my body. So mismatched. This foundation, however, makes my skin look natural and you can’t notice any difference between my face and the rest of my body. Love that! For me, a beauty blender is the ONLY way to apply this foundation. The beauty blender just makes this foundation look all the more natural.

I’ve repurchased this foundation multiple times, I think I’m only on my third or fourth bottle. (Not too bad for the last year or so!) Until something new and breathtaking hits the market, I’m sure I’ll be using this for years to come! If you’re looking for a natural foundation and have a similar skin type to mine, I very much recommend this product.

3 Favorite Essential Oil Combinations

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I got a diffuser for Christmas and have been using it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY since I opened it. I’m so in love with it! I highly recommend everyone getting one. I love it way more than my scentsy and the specific model I got is also a humidifier which is always a plus. I’ll leave a link to the specific one here. The diffuser came with a few essential oils to play around with and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite combinations. I always feel like a scientist when mixing all of these together. 🙂

Lavender & Eucalyptus

Lavender + Eucalyptus

This is my ultimate bedtime combination. It’s so relaxing and smells absolutely amazing!

LemonGrass & Sweet Orange

Lemon Grass + Sweet Orange

I love to use this scent during the day, especially after I’ve just cleaned, because it’s so fresh and fruity. It’s a great combination for a clean fresh feel to your room.

Peppermint & Tea Tree

Tea Tree + Peppermint

This last one is my go-to when I’ve had a long day or I have a bad headache. Peppermint is great for aiding in head aches and the tea tree scent is so relaxing.

Leave me a comment below and let me know what your favorite combination is!
