Spring. . . Will it ever come?!

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!

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

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!

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

#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.

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, 😆

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.

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.

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??
