My friend Elianne is a makeup guru.  I recently stopped in on her unexpectedly recently (on a day when she planned to be home all day), and she was adorable in simple but flawless makeup, cat-eye liner and bright lip - plus a Pinterest-worthy side braid.  I share this to explain why I trust her makeup recommendations.  It was she who shared a tip with me to check out a LA-based makeup company called ColourPop, and because it was Elianne, I actually did.  I bought a classic red long-lasting matte lip color (called Creeper, oddly enough), a cream bronzer and a charcoal gray eyeliner.  I liked all of them!  I use the bronzer daily (I chose the color Paradise Cove), the eyeliner regularly (when I wear gray eyeliner, lately I'm into brown) and the red when I want a bright, long-lasting matte lip color.    The lip color lasts all day, and would last through a snack, but I remove all of it before eating an actual meal, as I don't want to eat my makeup...  (Maybe you're a tidier eater)  I would absolutely buy from them again!  

This is not sponsored, I just thought I'd share Elianne's find with you all.  The lip color I am wearing here is called Mars, and is also from ColourPop (a gift from my sweet friend Elianne).  It's a complete departure for me, but I've been really liking it.  It's a bit more unexpected than a classic red, but it add some spice to a simple outfit like this one.  On days where I'm not up for trying too hard to look polished (and there were quite a few of those while we were moving), it's an easy shortcut to feel a little more finished.
