Monday Favorites!!

Monday Favorites!!

I am so beyond ecstatic for today’s post! After a month’s wait my personalized Hoola Bronzer finally arrived. When everyone started posting their Hoola I thought it was something they were only doing for makeup gurus. Then one lovely day my BFF was like, “Have you seen this?!” It was on the Benefit website that anyone can get a personalized Hoola. 😄For a few extra dollars I have my own personalized bronzer. With my name on it. EEEEEKKKKK!!!!! (LOL) I’m going to be 100% honest . . . I can’t make myself use it. This is huge. I think anyone who loves makeup like I do secretly dreams about having their name on a product!

PrisHOOLA
It has my name on the bronzer and the brush it comes with. 

ESSIEOPI

Another Monday favorite is this Essie nailpolish in #753 fashion playground. I received this in an Ipsy bag many months ago and have only just used it. I think the minty color is perfect for spring. I like using the O.P.I top coat. It’s the only clear top coat that last through many pool visits. It’s all I use.

NYXPEACHESANDCREAMNYXSTRAWBERRYPARFAITNYXRASPBERRYTART

Lastly, is NYX’s Butter Glosses. I love the formula for these. Its nice and thick without being sticky or slimy. Usually one swipe of these is enough but it can be built to a deeper color without it being overpowering. If I had to compare these to anything it’d be Mac’s Cremesheen Glass. Here I have Peaches and cream, Strawberry Parfait, and Raspberry Tart. As you can guess Peaches and Cream is a soft peach color, Strawberry parfait is a soft pink, and Raspberry tart looks like it would be a deep purple but it actually looks like a light burgundy but can be piled on for a darker berry color. (Side note, my 3yr. old got this because she wanted a purple lipstick.)😂

These products have been my favorite for a while. I have repurchased many of them over and over. They’re here to stay!

What are some of the products you love to repurchase?? Or which have been your favorites as of laretely?

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

What’s in my makeup bag!

What’s in my makeup bag!

As I mentioned before we are in the process of moving and I already packed most of my makeup. In my every day makeup bag I kept my every day essentials.  

  This is my every day makeup bag. It’s huge because it’s for packing underwear when traveling (lol) but I love the colors so I will use it and it was free!!

  
It’s pretty spacious as you can see and fits everything perfectly! 

 
 
 I always prime with Benefits Porefessional and use it cosmetics bye bye under eye. I’ve been giving L’oreals Infallible pro-matte foundation another chance since I got my acne under control so now I know it wasn’t the foundation breaking me out. I use Mac’s concealer to highlight and then set it all with Mac’s face powder. For eyes I’ve been using Urban Decay’s Naked basics palette. Mascara as usual, too faced Better than sex and Benefit’s Roller lash. For my sharp wings of course I use my trusty Kat Von D ink! liner in trooper  

   

For blush I’ve been using Milani’s baked blush in 05 Luminoso and to highlight I use my favorite from the balm Mary Lou-manizer. Because my perfumes are also packed I left out a sample scent (because I’m obsessed and want to purchase it) and 2 roller perfumes. The sample is Marc Jacobs Decadence. The big roller perfume is Marc Jacobs and I can’t remember the name of it. But it’s a fresh floral scent. The smaller roller is Jor’el Parker Femina and I actually received this in one my of ipsy bags. This has such a pretty, smooth, girly scent that goes on a bit strong but fades throughout the day to the point where you can’t smell it but other people can. 

Of course I have other quads by Wet n Wild I use and other blushes. These pictured are just what I’ve been gravitating to since packing up the rest. I’ve been going for very minimal looks with a lot of glow. Fully embracing spring!🌴🌺🌸💐🌷🌴

What’s in your makeup bag? Or what are some of your every day staples/must haves??

Living in Florida you would think I’d have a tan all year around. So I told myself I’d use my Too Faced Born This Way foundation and would be ok. Wrong! I had to wear a shirt with a high collar! When I was color matched for the foundation I was obviously tanned. Or maybe I should just color match myself?! I’m not sure who is to blame but I made it work!!

As always I primed with my Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional face primer. Concealed with NYX HD Concealer. Then I did foundation. All set with Mac’s Studio fix powder foundation. To set my under eye I used the Laura Mercier translucent powder.

For eyes I primed with Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later eyeshadow primer. In the crease I used Lazarus from the Kat Von D ‘Shade & Light’ eye palette. For the brow bone I used Liberatus from the same palette and Lucius on the lid. That’s it. I told myself I was going for a “simple look”. For eyeliner, Kat Von D’s Ink Liner in trooper (I think I put the wrong name in other posts!! Sorry!). Mascara as always Roller Lash and Better Than Sex. 

To warm up the face (not that I needed it lol!) and contour I used my favorite NYC Sunny bronzing face powder. For blush Milani’s baked blush in 05 Luminoso.  As a highlight Mary-Lou Minzer. And on the lips I just did a little gloss from NYX in Peaches and Cream. 

   

I was happy with the finished look. Even though I messed up with the foundation I made it work, the beauty of makeup! In the end I think I went a little heavy on the eyes but it’s still one of my go to looks. As you can see I have acne and my skin isn’t perfect but that doesn’t hold me back and I hope no one else does. We are beautiful no matter what. Inside and out!

Brushes. . . Brushes Galore!

Brushes. . . Brushes Galore!

If you know me personally then you already know that I am a make up brush junkie! If you are just joining me and plan to stay a while you will soon find out that, I AM A BRUSH JUNKIE! It started with this unrealistic  idea that I needed a specific brush for a specific face section to be any good. With people on youtube, instagram, and pinterest shoving content down your throat it’s easy to get caught up in these unrealistic expectations. More brushes doesn’t make you any better or less of a makeup lover, trust me! Now a days I’m more of “conscious” shopper. Is it animal cruelty free, does it shed, whats the price?? (lol)

So here I am today to talk about a brand I love and to rant, a little.

3:3:16-1

I never put much thought when I bought a sharpener. I figured they all do the same thing right?? WRONG!!!!! Im a bargain shopper, a ‘we don’t have much money’ shopper, so naturally I opted for the $0.99 sharpener and I regret it soooooooo much! I’ve ruined a few eyeliners and lip liners. So finally I told myself I’d waste a little more on something that in the long run would save me money. My old sharpener was not sharpening at all, would break off whatever I did manage to sharpen, and at times would completely pull out the product. Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions on a good sharpener??

3:3:16-2

Is anyone else obsessed with Real Technique brushes?? They are such good brushes and so affordable. My hope is to one day own all the sets they have (lol) I can’t help myself! The story behind the Real Technique creators is pretty awesome. It’s every girls dream come true. . . or maybe just mine! Here’s the Real Techniques website 

3:3:16-3

This here is their blush brush. I always walk by it in the store and admire it. Finally I threw it in the cart and let the hubs pay for it. GUILT FREE! These brushes are so worth it. I’ve washed mine multiple times and have yet to experience ANY shedding. For me that’s a plus because I hate when I get little bristles left behind that itch. They are easy to clean and are synthetic too.  This specific brush retails for $9 on their website. Not bad considering a MAC blush brush is $35. I’ve seen them for sale at Ulta, Walmart, and even some Walgreens. 3:3:16-4

(Btw excuse the dirty brushes. Tonight is bath night for these babies) Pictured here: the big orange one is Powder brush $10, Pink dome brush is the Blush brush $9, Big white one is a Duo-Fiber face brush, the other small white brush is also a Duo-Fiber contour brush which comes in a set with another brush (Duo-Fiber eye brush) and retails for $20. The other orange brush is part of the Core Collection and its a Contour brush, this set retails for $18 and it includes 3 other brushes. The two purple brushes are from the Starter Set and its a Base shadow brush and a Brow Brush, this set retails for $18 and it includes 3 more eye brushes. The bag is from Ipsy.

So lets talk brushes! Any that you love and suggest??

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.

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!
