#MOTD

I wasn’t sure if I was going to post another make up of the day so soon since I haven’t been wearing much makeup lately. But I finally got around to using my Too Faced Bon Bon palette!


Here is the look I created. I was so happy with it and drew inspiration from Missy Lyn on YouTube.

I tried something different and primed my eyelids with Mac’s pro long wear concealer and set it with the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. As a transition shade I used mocha from the Bon Bon palette. Then taking Bordeaux on the outer corner and inner corner I slowly built up the shades intensity. With a little fix+ on my brush I put café au lait in the center of the lid. As a brow bone highlight I used the Balms Mary Lou minizer as well as the at the inner corners. As always as an eyeliner I used Kat Von D’s tattoo liner in trooper. For mascara I combined Benefit’s Roller lash and Too faced Better than sex. My favorite combination.

 Like I said I was soooo happy with the end results! Here is the same pic with a filter.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoy similar ones!

Cruelty Free, Ipsy, Makeup

Rose Gold Beauties

2:24:16-3So I told myself I would try and post at least 3 times a week so here I am!! Today I bring you these rose gold beauties that I am head over heels in love with. I first heard about Luxie Beauty through Ipsy. They sent me a blending brush in one of my monthly bags. Soon after receiving it I went on their website and purchased two more. These brushes are amazing, affordable, AND cruelty free!! I mean can it get any better than all that?!? Well yes, yes it can!!

“Flashback to the 90’s, when high quality and synthetic bristles were oxymorons in the world of makeup brushes. Seeing this shortage, yet battling with sensitive and allergy-prone skin herself, founder Tammy Huynh decided to take matters into her own hands.

“All of the cosmetic brands I tried broke me out,” she said. With over eight years of experience in the beauty industry, she envisioned a cosmetics line that wasn’t just for a pretty face, but a wholesome lifestyle.

After meeting husband Michael Tran, she was pushed to launch Luxie in 2014. The goal? Provide conscientious and beneficial makeup products to women. According to Michael, Tammy was his inspiration. With a creative background, he envisioned a pink and rose gold makeup brush, which became their first makeup brush line.

The Luxie signature is vegan, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic and high-quality.

Every single product has a purpose.

It was for that reason that Luxie’s vegan eyeshadow line is infused with vitamins C and E to provide added benefits to the skin. Or why each handcrafted makeup brush is coated with a revolutionary antibacterial solution. Luxie combines quality, conscience and character.

Since then, Luxie has delivered high-quality cosmetic products and inspired women everywhere to express their beauty. Based in San Jose, California, Luxie offers over 200 cosmetics products and fosters an online community of women who know that beauty is more than skin deep.

The Luxie woman owns who she is and what she wants.

She is aware that beauty and health are not mutually exclusive.

And she adds a touch of glamour into every area of her life.”

That is the ‘about us’ from their website. The brushes speak for themselves. They are soft, don’t shed at all, blend beautifully, and like she said they have never upset my skin. Sometimes certain brushes even after washing feel like they burn my skin.

These brushes vary in price from $10 and up. Luckily the BFF told me about a sale Ipsy had going on and I purchased the ‘eye set’ for $25 plus free of tax and free shipping. (Another awesome reason to join Ipsy lol.) In the eye set came #221 Flat definer, #207 Medium angled shading, #215 Small angle, #235 Blending, and #231 Small tapered blending.

If you love pink these are for YOU! They are adorable, fluffy, affordable, and amazing.

Monday Favorites

Let me start this post by mentioning that I am a total packaging dork. The cuter the better. That doesn’t mean I don’t look into things and do research. These little beauties here are my recent favorites. Including the brushes.

The brushes are Sonia Kashuk, Morphe, and Real Techniques. I’m all about affordable brushes and these brands definitely deliver for the price point. The jar is just a repurpose of a spaghetti sauce jar! (lol) I’m all for repurposing.

Now the star of the show are these palettes my husband got me for Valentine’s day. I know I am one lucky girl. The Kat Von D ‘Shade and Light’ palette has been sitting in my Sephora cart for forever!!  It is “an eye contouring palette featuring three color quads in neutral, cool, and warm shades.”-Sephora website. I am absolutely obsessed. I have warm undertones and hazel-ish eyes and this works with me. They have some fall out but they are so buttery and blend soooo well!! Sadly I didn’t think to open the palette, SORRY!!

Then theres Tarte’s ‘Tartelette in Bloom Clay’ shadow palette.” An eye shadow palette with 12 brand-new shades in a mix of matte and luster finishes.” It has 9 mattes and 3 shimmer shadows or like the Sephora website says ‘3 luster’ shadows. Another favorite because of how easy they blend and how buttery they feel. They kind of have a similar scent like the Too Faced chocolate palettes or maybe its just the ‘clay’? Anyone know?

Last but not least is the Too Faced  ‘Chocolate Bon Bon’ palette. “An eye palette from the Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection with 16 heart-shaped, cocoa powder-enriched eye shades in brights and neutrals.” First off this line calls to me in ways I can’t explain! Everything they release is adorable, amazing quality, and worth every penny. Unlike the other two palettes this one has a lot more pops of color. Sadly I haven’t created any ‘colorful’ looks but it seems like such a great option for spring.

Here are my recent Go to makeup selections. I’ve opted for a softer lip, some serious glow (since my foundation does dry to a matte), and of course some simple looks achieved with both these palettes.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed photographing and typing up!

#MOTD 

One of my favorite type of posts to see on YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram is like get ready with me or makeup of the day. So I decided to do my own little post of one. It’s not every day I get to do a full face of makeup so when I do I like to try new products, new looks, and truly push myself to try new techniques.

So here it is!! The face behind the screen!


In this picture there’s a filter applied.


Here it is in natural light.

On the eyes I used Tarte’s Tartlette 2 in bloom Amazonian clay palette and Kat Von D’s tattoo liquid liner. For mascara I combine Benefits Roller lash super curling and lifting mascara and Too faced Better than sex.

On the face I primed with Benefit cosmetics Porefessional face primer, concealed with Mac’s Pro long wear concealer, for foundation I use Estee Lauders Double wear stay-in-place face foundation, set all of it with Mac’s Pro long wear pressed powder. I contour with Too faced  chocolate soliel matte bronzer in milk chocolate and warm up the face with NYC’s 720 Sunny. I’m not 100% sure on the blush because it’s a pan I received in one of my Ipsy bags in the past. As a highlighter I used the Balms Mary Lou minizer.

On the lips I used Mac’s Ruby woo. I set the whole look with Urban Decay’s All nighter makeup setting spray!

I’m always so self conscious when I do a smokey eye that I’ve been slowly building up the intensity and for now this is as smokey as I get! I had so much fun with this look and truly pulled myself out of my comfort zone. Altough I did change the lip to a nude after dinner it all still worked so well together.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoy everyone else’s!

February’s Ipsy Glam bag

This month’s glam bag is so Valentines(ish)! The bag itself is black with a white envelope and a bright red heart in the center!! 

  
It reminds me of an emoji 💌. I’m a huge fan of emojis little FYI. Now if you don’t know what Ipsy is I’ll tell you. It is a monthly subscription of $10 for 4-5 beauty products. They mostly come in sample sizes but there is usually one or two products that make the bag worth the price. Meaning it’ll be worth more than $10 itself. When you subscribe you answer some questions to decide what kind of products you’ll get that work specifically for you such as hair color and skin tone. 

This month I was so excited for the bag itself but also for the iT cosmetics bye bye under eye concealer. It is a full coverage, anti-aging, waterproof concealer with hydro-collagen and vitamins C & K. I’ve read so many great reviews for this product that I am ecstatic to try it! 

There’s a Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind sparkling lipgloss in ‘Pink Sequin’. A mineral blush by bellápierre cosmetics in MB001 Desert Rose. A ciaté mini nail polish in ‘my off duty nude’ which is a soft pinkish nude. Last but not least an ultra rich body butter by skinfix. It is dermatologist recommended has natural ingredients, Shea butter, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and is fragrance free! 

Over all I’m super happy and excited with this month’s bag so many great products to try out and possibly buy full size!

  
In the picture the toofaced Bon Bon palette is included. That unfortunately did not come in the bag. I actually got it as a valentines gift.  I just couldn’t help myself including it because of all the hearts! 

I hope this post was helpful to anyone considering Ipsy!! Until next time! Thanks for reading
