Twirling in Navy + A Fabulous New Mascara
Thanks to COVERGIRL for sponsoring today’s post.
I’m a firm believer that it’s important to build your self-esteem around your inner attributes, but let’s be real: a cute dress, a sky-high pair of heels, and absolutely killer makeup doesn’t hurt your confidence levels. I feel perfectly fine walking around town without a speck of makeup, but I feel like I can rule the world when I have perfectly winged eyeliner and fluttery eyelashes.
That’s one of the many reasons why I’m constantly searching for the latest and greatest products in the beauty world. Colorful lipsticks and beautiful eye shadows are fun to play with, but they can also give you an extra boost of confidence and showcase your personality. Plus, adding a little bit of glamour to your everyday life is never a bad idea!
Sometimes people think that girls who wear a lot of makeup are trying to hide their flaws, but I have a different opinion. For me, applying makeup is a relaxing and playful way to showcase my personality. Some days I go makeup-free, and other days I’m all about a dramatic smoky eye or bold lip. No matter which colors I choose, it helps me present the best version of myself and gives me the inner confidence to rock the day’s events!
Life is filled with stressful decisions and difficult situations, so why not appreciate the little moments of happiness in our life like good makeup days? Maybe it’s just me, but a good makeup day puts a smile on my face and a pep in my step!
As I mentioned earlier, I’m constantly testing the latest makeup releases to see if there’s a new product that can make my good makeup days a little bit better. Even though my makeup drawers are filled to the brim with dozens of different brands, I often find myself reaching for COVERGIRL products over the luxury products in my collection. Despite their low price point, the quality of many of their products rivals high-end brands. One of my latest finds is the COVERGIRL Plumpify Mascara.
I love the entire COVERGIRL mascara range, and the new Plumpify formula doesn’t disappoint. I’ve been wearing this mascara every day for the past two weeks, and I really think it’s worth a try! COVERGIRL Plumpify Mascara lengthens and volumizes your lashes without making them look too clumpy, and the wand allows you to create a natural or dramatic look depending on how many coats you apply. I purchased the non-waterproof formula, but I’ve been really impressed that this mascara hasn’t flaked or smeared in the humid Florida weather. This mascara is a great fit for anyone trying to accomplish a glam makeup look!

If you need an extra boost of confidence this week, glam it up! Between the stresses of work and everyday life, we all could use a little war paint to prepare us for the challenges of the day. My war paint of choice is two coats of mascara and pink lipstick, but I’d love to hear what makes you feel more confident. Leave a comment below or tweet me at @ashleybnicholas!
