Hello again and welcome back to Mackenzie Kateri! Happy Wednesday! Yesterday was my first day back at school following Christmas vacation. And well, I’m not going to lie it was pretty rough. No it wasn’t bad. In fact, I was happy to back in the swing of things, but it was difficult adjusting back to my school schedule after a week off! Yes I drank a few extra coffees, and yes I was practically dragging my feet at the gym, but by today everything was back to normal! I am determined to accomplish my goals, so everyday I have to push myself. In fact, I kicked up the cardio in my gym routine and made a fresh batch of detox water! Oh and I even set my alarm a bit earlier! But anyway, today’s post is short, sweet, and simple! Five double duty makeup tricks inspired by my new read, “The Little Book of Life Hacks: How to Make Your Life Happier, Healthier, and More Beautiful” by Yumi Sakugawa. I got this book for Christmas from one of my favorite humans! Shoutout to Amanda, you rock babe!! (The book is shown in the featured photo, check it out! I totally recommend 10/10!!) My post describes five makeup products that have multi-purposes! Super savvy, smart, and stylish! And who doesn’t love trying out new makeup tricks? As always, thank you so much for reading and just remember it’s almost Friday!! XO, MK

  1. Eyeshadow as highlighter
  2. Cream blush as lip gloss
  3. Lipstick as blush: Try to use lighter shades such as peach or light pink!
  4. Concealer as eyeshadow primer: Rub a tiny smidge on your eyelids to secure your eyeshadow.
  5. Bronzer as eyeshadow

Hi my loves!! Today’s post is a little different; I noticed it’s a popular blogger thing to post favorite products of the month… so here I am guilty of jumping on this bandwagon! But, I really think it’s a great idea because there are so many underrated products out there just because they cheap or a generic brand. I love reading posts about drug store products that get the same job done as Sephora products.. sometimes they even work better!! So, today I am sharing with you five products that I swear by! As always, thanks so much for reading!! And have an amazing week babes! XO, MK (more…)

Hi guys! Happy Sunday! Today I am going to show you my five favorite lip products. I am a total lipstick and lip gloss fanatic! Pros of this addiction include on point selfies, a poppin’ lip color all the time, and a shade to match any and every outfit. Cons well jeez, my purse is like a lost and found full of tubes and lipsticks, I stain everything I sip or chew, and the fact stands that I have basically sold my soul to Sephora and MAC!! But anyway, I hope everyone enjoys this post and I also hope that it inspires you to try some of my favorite lippies! As always, thank you so much for reading, and keep an eye out for this week’s Seven Days One Sec. XO, MK (more…)
