Welcome to Milsos and Makeup! Our names are Angela, Sherica, and Kiersten, we are military wives with a passion for all things beauty. We wanted to start this blog to write about our lives as military wives and to connect with other spouses who are going through the same struggles. we also are addicted to makeup blogs, travel, and other fun things, so we figured ‘why not merge them all.’
Hey guys!!! It’s been a hot minute… So a little update is probably required:
I am back in the states (Maryland) until March. My husband has been deployed for a month now, and I’ve been a hot mess!! I didn’t want to stay in Norway alone for the holidays so I decided to come back to Maryland and be with my family. My mom and I have started a little craft business selling all sorts of cool stuff if you wanna check it out here’s the Facebook link. https://www.facebook.com/moonflowerdesigns2017/ if you like our page shoot me a Facebook message and I’ll give you 10% off of your first order. I’ve started classes again so I’ve been super busy with making all of the products and keeping up with school.
Today I’ve been productive though, I uploaded a new video on my YouTube (https://www.facebook.com/moonflowerdesigns2017/) it’s a house tour of my home in Norway. I also finally took my butt to Ulta to redeem my birthday gift (my birthday was the 21st, ya girl just turned 23!!) So let me get down to the real reason behind this post…
Ulta has the Anastasia Contour Palettes marked down 50% today!!!!! The $40 palette is now $20…. Plus if you look online you can find a 20% off coupon that will bring the palette to $16….. UMMMM y’all need to start running. PLUS with the purchase they give you a free mini lippie (mine was in the color Vintage, picture below) AND a sample of the brow pomade in all 4 colors. I. Am. Shook. I also bought the Urban Decay up all night setting spray which came to $25 with my 20% off coupon ANDDDD last but not least, my birthday gift was the it cosmetics superhero mascara that retails at $12. Fo free is fo me.
I want to go redeem my Sephora birthday gift tomorrow and check out the fenty line. So look out for another post, but here are the products I got today:

HEY GUYS! It’s been sooo long since I lasted posted. However, today I am here with a brand new post! It is all about my brows! We all know how important it is to have fierce brows. So I thought that I would share with you guys my eyebrow routine. I did a little tutorial on my routine, so be sure to check out the video down below. I hope this video will help you out if you struggle with brows. I remember the first time I drew in my brows and let me tell you… it was the most terrifying thing I ever saw. Thankfully, I am now satisfied with how my brows look. Just keep in mind, practice makes perfect! Any who, I am just going to keep this post short and sweet so you can go ahead and watch the video. ENJOY!
I’m back with September’s Ipsy unbagging, I’m sorry for the late post (again) however, next month I’ll be back in the states so I’ll actually get my bag on time.

Anyways, onto the fun part!
Here’s a super quick video showing the bag and the products:

I FINALLY got my Kylie birthday collection after much anticipation and lots of drama with the post office. The packaging is as pretty as ever (shown in the featured photo.) The total price was 175.00 USD which is pretty steep, but since I’m a die hard Kylie supporter you know I had to treat myself to this gorgeous collection. I filmed a video with Sherica swatching the products so that you can see how the shades look on different skin tones, so if you’re wondering what the shades look like on the lips then watch the video below. And also, if you’re a fellow YouTuber feel free to like and subscribe so we can support each other there as well.

So, as some of you may know I embarked on a slightly rigorous health/fitness challenge that few of you may think was a bit far fetched. To recap, the August challenge consisted of getting the Perfect Month Badge on my Apple watch. This is earned by reaching my daily move goal every day of a single month from the month’s first day to its last. I also ditched meat, dairy, and alcohol (MAD) for the entire month of August. I lost a total of 12 pounds, and three and a half inches off my waistline Here are my results.
Day 1 Day 30
Day 1 Day 30
Day 1 Day 30
The first week I did a detox which included of a lot of fruits and veggies in any combination from plain raw fruit to smoothies or salads. The first week was probably the hardest week of the month but every week that followed became easier and more rewarding as the days went by.
Since I took MAD out of my diet for the month, oatmeal, smoothies, and sauteed veggies were some of my meal options whereas raw fruit, nuts, and salads were some of my snack options. I have this thing for potato chips and was not ready to kick the habit, so kettle chips were my comfort snack now and then. Seriously y’all, I am literally going to turn into a big fat potato chip one day.
Anyway, since September 1, I’ve had meat once and a lot of cheese and alcohol. I am a bit sluggish since adding dairy and alcohol back into my diet these past few days. I attribute this to the alcohol. I’ve also noticed a reoccurrence of acne which is probably due to dairy. I think it is easier to pinpoint the causes of change because I feel my body was virtually clear of toxins for the most part. I’ll admit I was afraid to loosen the reins because it’s so easy to pick up old habits when reintroduced to them. And, after 31 days of discipline, I didn’t want to throw all of my hard work out of the window.
So what I’ve decided to change as a result of this challenge is to continue nurturing my body without meat and dairy. I will have alcohol every once in a while, but it will only be for special occasions. I just felt so much better physically and mentally without the consumption of MAD. Additionally, I felt more energetic, and my attitude seemed more positive than usual. As for the physical activity, I will never stop being active. It’s just a part of who I’ve always been.
On August first I was thinking “what did I get myself into,” and by day 31 I felt invincible. Every day I came closer to the end of this challenge I started thinking of all the things I wanted to accomplish in my life and begin to use this challenge as fuel in keeping me dedicated to being the best version of myself I can be. Successfully completing this test reassures me I can do anything I put my mind to and I intend to do what is necessary within reason to be great.
Hey babes, The past week I’ve been on vacation! I went to Paris and Amsterdam, it was lovely. I vlogged my trips, so I’ll share them with you when they’re edited. While in Paris I stopped in the mall and ran into a Sephora just to take a peek. My husband decided to spoil me however, and bought me a few items that I’ve never seen before. Here’s what I got:This item surprised me because I had no idea that Benefit made a skin care line. I don’t know if it’s new and I just missed it, but in all honesty, it’s AMAZING. This had just the right level of abrasiveness, it made my skin feel so smooth. It also smelled refreshing, which was a total plus. While we’re talking about benefit skin care, I also snagged the “it’s potent” eye cream. Just like the first product, this one did not disappoint. I noticed results after just one night of using this cream, which is rare with an eye cream. This was the product that I was most excited about, because hello, it’s basically fall so you have to stock up on pumpkin products. But also, because gold face masks just make me feel so glam! I loved this mask also, I used this after washing my face with the facial polish and I honestly don’t think my skin has felt so baby smooth in a long time. This was the only disappointment in this haul. I love a good pore strip, but this one for one barely took out any blackheads. Half of the strip was left on both mine and my husbands nose leaving a gross black residue. For the cost, it was NOT worth it. I warned you guys that this was a mini haul, but as you know, shopping at Sephora is no joke. Like you kinda don’t want to look at your bank account afterwards. What’s your favorite product that you’ve purchased recently? Let me know in the comments ♥️
Sorry for the delayed post, life has been crazy! I started school last week, I’ve been preparing for my in-law’s visit (they got here yesterday,) and we head to Paris on Monday! Life is crazy, but in the best way possible.
I was obsessed with this bag, from the bag itself to the makeup. It was all to die for. the products I got were:
Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen
Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus
SLMissGlam T35 Precise Blending Brush
Paula Dorf Cosmetics Mini Universal Brow Pencil in Taupe
I recorded a video to show you guys the products because I was using them to get ready for what I thought was going to be a date night with my hubby, Sherica, and her husband Jaytee. However, it turned out that my bestie Sherica threw Tomas and I a surprise wedding shower with a lot of our friends from the base. I was so shocked and happy. Hopefully, I can post some pictures of how cute the shower was soon enough.
Take a look at my video for my review of these products, and to see me stab myself in the eye with my mascara LOL. If you aren’t already, feel free to subscribe to my channel for future updates.
