Makeup Of The Week

This past week I wore more makeup than usual. I’m not sure what it was but for me makeup is therapeutic. Or perhaps with my “bold” hair I needed makeup to feel evened out. LOL! No worries my hair won’t stay this gold. We’re going to give it a break before bleaching it one more time and then toning it, can’t wait!

IMG_0400-2

Am I the only one that sometimes likes to go soft on the eyes and just focuses on the skin? I absolutely love how healthy my skin looked on this day.

IMG_0426-2-2

This day I went a little bolder trying to slowly work up the courage to try a “sunset eye”. Have you seen that trend? It’s supposed to be the shizz this summer. In the center of the lid I have Colourpop’s Super Shock Pressed Pigment in “Animal”. How gorgeous is it?? In person it has a goldish sheen to it.

IMG_0489-2

I feel like this hair called for a bold pinup’ish look. I had so much fun with this look. To achieve this eye look I used Kat Von D’s “Shade & Light Contour Eye Palette”. It has to prettiest warm and cool browns. To highlight I used the sample of Urban Decay’s highlighter I received in my Ipsy May Glam Bag. On the lips I have a combination of NYX’s Lingerie “#05 Beauty Mark” and on the center is Milani’s “#10 Adorable”.

IMG_0492

Although I wasn’t wearing makeup the whole week the days I did cake it on I was so happy with my looks. I tend to go soft and lately I’ve been feeling bold and going for more bold looks. Definitely stepping out of my comfort zone!

Whats your “Go To” look? Is it glam or simple??

(Filters are curtsey of Snapchat 👻)

Until next time. . .

#MOTD

IMG_0189-2This post is to brag a little of a few items I posted about in my Colourpop Mini Haul. Today I tried a few new things. First off all I switched up my moisturizer to one I received in my Ipsy’s April Glam Bag. So far I love it! Seriously might purchase a full size.

IMG_0186-2

Something else that is new is the shade in my crease. I used “Brady” by Colourpop. I was a bit scared to use these shadows because I’ve only used their chrome ones and for that the best application is the fingertip. For this shadow I used a fluffy Morphe brush that is for contouring the nose.

I LOVE how it looks on the lid. They’ve worn so good and for a base I used MAC painterly paint pot in “soft ochre”.

IMG_0146-2

Now what I want to brag about and encourage you to buy is the holographic highlighter in “Monster”. If you read my mini haul then you saw this highlighter but I totally forgot to swatch it so here it is! I feel so pretty. I didn’t pack it on and I used a duo fiber brush so maybe that’s why it went on so soft and subtle. But I like it better than some of my “gold” highlighters. Because of my tan complexion many highlighters tend to look chalky. And perhaps because of the mousse formula I didn’t feel like this looked chalky on me at all. I paired it with a pink blush and obviously the pink eye. I also went soft and light on the lips with a Milani liquid lipstick.

If it’s possible I love Colourpop even more now and feel like I need to go and purchase more of its holographic highlighters! 🙊

IMG_0144-2

I also did a thing with my hair. Did you notice?? I’ve slowly been working towards getting my hair a “silver”. Thoughts??? I like it sooo much! I am naturally ashy so I didn’t feel like it was such a big change but we will be bleaching it again and doing silver perhaps once more. Since the hubby is gone I can go ahead and go crazy because he’s a creature of habit and never liked the idea of blonde on me. But my ultimate goal is to be platinum. I know I’m crazy! But for now I love my hair this way!! Maybe, I’ll even do some pastels. My bff just did purple and she looks GORGEOUS!!

Hope you liked this post and I’ve tipped you over on wether you should try Colourpop or not. It’s seriously affordable and such great quality. The pigmentation is everything and they have a lot of variety!

What are some of your holy grail Colourpop items? Anything you think I should try? Also, what color should I try on my hair?? Lets go CRAZY!!! 🤗

Until next time. . .

Colourpop Mini Haul

maDSC_0202

When it comes to affordable and great quality makeup Colourpop never fails. In the past I’ve purchased some eyeshadows and this time I ventured out. I got a blush, some highlights, and a gel liner. To say I’m stoked is an understatement. If you’re online at all then you’ve seen that anything unicorn or mermaid is in! We’ll begin this post with my absolute favorite items I purchased.

DSC_0221

DSC_0225.jpg

DSC_0226.jpg

Pictured here are the two highlighters I got which are Wisp and Monster. Wisp is described as a golden champagne on the Colourpop website. It is absolutely gorgeous! One swipe gives you an every day look while a few coats gives a bright “shine like a diamond” look. Monster is. . . I don’t know if there are enough words to describe its beauty. As you can see by the picture it looks white and that’s because its holographic (if you follow makeup then you know Kat Von D has some too). It goes on pink! On the colourpop website it is described as “a cute light pink opalescent duo chrome”.

DSC_0219

DSC_0217.jpg

The blush is a gorgeous peach. Holiday is described as a “mid tone pinky peach”.

DSC_0229

I also went ahead and purchased some shadows that were transition shades. If I am completely honest I live for a simple every day eye. Which is basically a base with a transition shade and some liner. I normally go for browns but both these colors caught my eye!

DSC_0230

First up is “Bill” as you can see its a cool mauve shade.

DSC_0234

“Brady” is a warmer rose shade. It is perfect for a light dust of color.

Last but not least is Colourpop’s gel liner in “Swerve”. A very black creamy gel liner.

I was over all so happy with my purchase and I can’t wait to actually do some makeup looks with them! I also changed my hair and I can’t wait to show you guys.

Any Colourpop products you absolutely love? Any holy grails I should check out??

Until next time. . .

Ipsy’s April Glam Bag

DSC_0080

I cannot get over how adorable this months bag is! It also featured some amazing items and people! I personally love Bailey Sarian and have spoken to her one on one. It’s amazing to see her out there doing what she so clearly loves!

DSC_0097.png

DSC_0093.jpg

To say I was excited to be receiving a brush again is an understatement. I was ECSTATIC!! I absolutely love Luxie and blue is my favorite color. I was as excited as a child on Christmas Day! You know the drill: cruelty free brand, synthetic bristles, and super soft and affordable. I swear by Luxie.

DSC_0100

Something else I was super stoked about was this Colourpop creme gel liner. Once again it’s one of my favorite brands. It is very affordable and really good quality.

dsc_0105.jpg

I received the color “Swerve” (black) and have yet to use it. But when I swatched it was very pigmented and have heard nothing but awesome things about it!

DSC_0088

The last loose pigment I received from Naked cosmetics was a gorgeous Champagne/goldish color I use sooooo much in halo eyes, a quick swipe on the lid for an every day look, or with some fix+ for a super vibrant night out look. The shade shown here is “Heavy metal #4” and it’s a copper/rust shade. GORGEOUS! I also read on the ipsy website this loose pigment can be used as a polish (check out YouTube for that). Can’t wait to try it that way!

DSC_0092.jpg

Let me begin by saying that the name to this little lip balm is adorable. “Besame mucho” translate to kiss me a lot in Spanish! I haven’t used it myself but my 4-year-old has because she had severe chapped lips.

Heard of propolis? We hadn’t either. It’s an extract from beehives that both hydrates and is antibacterial. This balm has loads of it, plus shea butter.
Lips feeling parched? Slather on a super thick coat to turn this into an overnight lip mask.  – Ipsy website

DSC_0091

Have you ever used aloe beyond sunburn season? We hadn’t either. But now we can’t live without it.
It’s cooling, refreshing, smoothing, and it feels ahhhh-mayyyy-zing.
Aloe is naturally regenerative, so it will help balance out any redness or uneven skin tone.
The gel texture also makes a killer makeup primer. –Ipsy website

The balancing of redness and the fact that it can be used as a primer sucked me into this product. I will be using it soon and I hope I love it because we love aloe!! All I remember is our trips to Mexico getting sunburned and breaking open an aloe plant to sooth our sunburns with it.

Overall I am very happy and excited with this months bag, The theme and bag itself is adorable! The products all seem so great and I’m sure that’s because I am constantly reviewing the products on the ipsy website. SO get those points and review, review, REVIEW!!

On another note, I want to apologize for the late post. If you read any of my other blog posts: Life Update: Deployment, Moving, & no more puppy! Then you know my little family is going through our first deployment as a family of four. The idea of being apart doesn’t scare me because I have faith in our marriage and faith & trust in my husband. But I have been scared and emotional because of everything going on in the world. I intend to fully submerge and commit myself to my blog to have a distraction but this past week had just been insane. If any other military spouses are going through this and want to connect or need someone to talk to feel free to search for me on my social media and PM me so we can help each other through this.

THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING 💖

What did you think of this months ipsy bag? Obsessed like me? Any products you ‘dislike’ or were hoping for??

Spring. . . Will it ever come?!

If like me you are up north/midwest then you know spring is never coming for us. When I was still in Florida spring was in full bloom at a nice sunny 70+ degrees. But just because it doesn’t feel like spring doesn’t  mean it is not spring because technically it is. That’s how I justified my spring look!

IMG_6462-2

As you can see we are still in sweaters 😩 To achieve this look I used my new favorite shadows: Colourpop pressed shadows!

IMG_6457-2.jpg

I went for a halo eye but sadly didn’t get a good pic. I however wanted to put the focus on my skin. I wanted to make it look healthy, hydrated, and glowy!

IMG_6461-2

  • Primer: Milk Cosmetics “Blur stick”
  • Foundation: Wet n Wild
  • Concealer: Tarte “shape tape”
  • Setting powder: RCMA
  • Bronzer: Benefits “Hoola bronzer”
  • Blush: Milani’s “Luminoso”
  • Eye Primer: Mac Pro longwear Paint pot
  • Eyeshadow: Colourpop Cosmetics “Wake up call & a mili” Makeup Geek “cocoa bear”
  • Eyeliner: Kat Von D
  • Highlight: Laura Geller “gilded honey”
  • Lips: Lipliner Mac “spice” NYX’s Liquid Lipstick “bedtime flirt”
  • Mascar: L’oreal “Telescoptic”
  • Setting spray: Mac “Fix +”

IMG_6463-2

Overall I was so happy with this look and I definitely feel like it can be played up with some fluttery lashes and a bold lip. As you can see I was just at home with my little and I never felt like it was “too much”.

Whats your favorite look?

Until next time. . .

#MOTD & First Impressions

dsc_0326

So like the seasons we change too and my recent routine has been a major change for me. I’m always itching to try new things and these are some of the products I’ve been using in my every day routine. Now, some of these I just got and haven’t used them for long so I’ll be giving you my “first impression” some others I’ve had.

As you can see by the pic my z palette has been my go to palette since purchasing the Colourpop shadows. In this post I talk more in-depth about them. Something else I’ve had for a while is the Hoola bronzer I got personalized, here’s the post for it! I kind of refused to use it because it’s so special to me but I broke down and did it. Which I’m glad I did its become one of my faves. The MAC lipstick is Velvet Teddy and the lip liner is spice. Such a pretty nude-ish combo. I also changed how I prime my eyes. Urban Decay’s Primer Potion wasn’t cutting it for me anymore so I switched to MAC’s Paint pot. It helps my shadow not fade with time because I do have oily lids.

dsc_0333

I swear by the Porefessional pore filler but I needed change. My skin changed and while I’m still oily I have been getting dry patches around my nose and the pore filler was accentuating them. I was done. I needed something more sheer but still promoted diminishing the appearance of pores. I also have the dr. Brandt pores no more. Even though it’s a lot thinner than the Porefessional it still felt thick on my dry patches. Which is what lead me to try the Milk cosmetics Blur stick. It is silicone and oil free which I didn’t know if your moisturizer or foundation has any of those it may clash with the primer and have a negative effect on the appearance of the makeup. I am extremely happy with it so far. I’ve only worn it a handful of times but so far its good. It retails for $36 so I am praying to the makeup gods we get along, 😆

dsc_0343

These Wet n Wild foundations are new for me. I purchased them over a month ago and I have such a love hate relationship with them. First off the shade between these two was pinkish so I went ahead and purchased a light shade and a darker one, combined, they’re a perfect match. Another thing that’s a bit of turn off is the scent of the actual foundation it’s very strong and reminds me of paint. But it wears so beautifully on the skin. It’s very light weight and can be built up without getting heavy. (CAKE 🎂FACE IS LIFE THOOO!! lol) It’s very very matte and I am very oily so trust me when I tell you it will last. This wears for I’d say 6+ hours before I start getting a little oily. As the name suggest its photo focus so it has no flash back and looks AMAZING in pictures.

img_6019
Does well with textured skin

dsc_0335

This Pixi Glow Mist is also new to me. Like I mentioned before the wet n wild foundation is very matte and with the dry patches I’m experiencing I needed a bit of hydration back in my skin. I tried setting my makeup with MAC’s fix+ right after setting it with the RCMA powder then finishing with Urban Decay setting spray but I still looked very dry. This is another product I’ve only used a handful of times but I’m happy with it. I used it to set immediately after I use my powder products; such as bronzer, blush, and setting powder. It leaves a beautiful sheen without being oily. . . or as the name suggest it leaves a glow. BUT its a very natural healthy glow. Not oily at all. I wore it for 4+ hours and never got heavily oily! Verdict?!? DRENCH YOURSELF IN IT! lol no jk But it does smell amazing so you might want to.

img_6024

img_6020

This #motd has been my go to because it’s so easy. It also focuses more on the skin than the eyes which is the opposite of what I usually do. I start soft and minimal black out and end up with a harsh contour, smokey eye, and bold lip LOL! In these pictures I am wearing all the products I’ve mentioned.

Anyone else obsessed with snapchat filters?! What are some new products you’ve recently tried? Have you tried anything I mentioned??

Makeup

Colourpop Pressed Shadows & More

dsc_0276

Normally I like to post at least one Makeup Of The Day (MOTD) a week but we are once again in the middle of a move (story of my life, huh?). Instead I thought I’d do a post I’ve been dying to do! A while back I got a visa gift card and did not know what to get.

dsc_0302

Through Ipsy I’ve gotten pans of shadows and blush so I purchased a z palette to hold it all together. Ever since I’ve been wanting to purchase some single shadows but there’s so many options out there that I was over whelmed. As a stay at home with one income I’ve learned that not everything that’s raved about on Youtube is worth your buck. So I narrowed it down to three company’s I’d want to buy single shadows from: Mac, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Makeup Geek.

dsc_0277
The three bottom shadows are Makeup Geeks Peach smoothie, Cocoa bear, and Faux fur.

dsc_0316Mac didn’t have any and Anatasia Beverly Hills were $12 per pan! (I had a mini heart attack when I saw the price) The best reasonably priced were Makeup Geek. We’ve seen them everywhere and have heard great things. Unlike the ABH shadows these retailed for HALF THE PRICE! I know amazing right?! Of course I bought the most popular shadows: Peach smoothie, Cocoa bear, and Faux fur. I absolutely love them. They’re very pigmented and blend soooo smoothly. I recommend them.

dsc_0273

The stars of this post are the Colourpop Pressed shadows. Anything you’ve heard about these is true! Colourpop specializes in affordable dazzling colors and when it came to these shadows they delivered.  I purchased Running late (the first pan in the palette) which reminds me a lot of peach smoothie, Wake up call (a soft brown that is perfect as a transition shade), Mili I actually received free because Colourpop reached 1,000,000 likes on Facebook (the only shimmer I got), Wait for it (the first pan in the second row) is a pretty soft pink/coral that I love as a transition shade, Stay Golden is the hot pink of the bunch, and last but not least is Piece of Cake which is described as a beautiful Indigo on the Colourpop website.

dsc_0320

Some pros to these shadows are the color pay off. They are very pigmented and a little goes a long way. They are also very very easy to blend and buttery. Like the other Colourpop shadows they come in bright pretty shades. Cons? When you dip your brush you’ll notice it has a lot of fall out. One more . . . the blue is a bit sheer but with some layering it does good. Now this will be music to your ears these only retail for $5!!

dsc_0323

Compared to the Makeup geek the only difference is that they have very little fall out. But I have one more shadow to talk about that I actually got in an Ipsy bag. It is the Ofra cosmetics “You Glow Girl”. It is a colab Ofra Cosmetics did with “dupethat” and it is a pretty pink shimmer that can be used for the face or eyes. I personally use it as just an eyeshadow. My opinion here will be of this product used as an eyeshadow not a highlighter (although I have used it as a highlight). This also has a lot of fall out. But the color pay off is awesome and it is such a beauty to use in a halo eye.

dsc_0309
Makeup Geek: Cocoa Bear

Colourpop: Stay Golden

Over all I am so happy with how my Z palette is looking and I can’t wait to add more shadows to it. Especially from ABH and Mac. *wishful thinking* If you’re thinking of buying single shadows I recommend all three of these companies. (Don’t quote me on the Ofra ones since I only own one.) The price points are awesome, they have a lot of colors to choose from, and the pigmentation is everything!

Do you own any of the Colourpop pressed shadows or Makeup geek?? Any shades I need? Any other companies I should try?!?

IMG_1706If you are on social media at all you’ve noticed pinks, coppers, peach, and anything along those lines is IN for spring. Its been raining and warm here in Florida so it feels a lot like spring. YAY!  Originally I had asked my 3yr old how I should do my makeup and she suggested a character from “Ever After High” a cartoon. I was all up for it until I went to get my palettes and sitting there all alone was this beautiful single shadow from Colourpop in Sequin. I purchased this and 4 other colors a while back but since I don’t go out much (no babysitter) I have always felt like they’re too vibrant and sparkly for every day use.

BUT today I kicked caution to the wind and I did it. Sequin is such a beautiful color with beautiful undertones.

Sequin

A copper penny like shade with silver and gold glitter. Find a boy, pick him up, all day long you’ll get good….. -from their website

I had to share that because that is truly the only way to describe it. It is part of their metallic collection. It makes an amazing lid shade. The consistency of these shadows is a bit tricky because it feels like a mousse but it’s so soft like a powder. One of the things I learned the hard way was to get the full pay out of the color it is best applied with the fingertip. I tried using it with a synthetic brush and it was good just seemed kind of sloppy because it does have glitter. ColourpopSequin

Originally when starting this post I was going to be lazy and not use my camera to photograph the shadow but I had to do it proper justice. My phone just wasn’t picking up the color how I wanted it. Colourpop is very inexpensive (these single pots cost only $5), they are made in the USA, and they don’t test on animals (hashtag WINNING!!). I have never had any issues with them and I genuinely enjoy them so much. They are such pretty colors!

IMG_1707

I had such a hard time trying to get my phone to pick up the color but it wouldn’t.

PriscillaI tried so many times. I even went outside in the rain but I truly feel like my silly phone didn’t capture it. Or maybe I messed up in the process of application when I used my Tartelette in bloom palette and used a “similar” shade as a base.

Anyone else obsessing over spring?? How about over Colourpop shadows??

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