Valentine’s Day Look!

Valentine’s Day Look!

IMG_1020

I can’t deny how excited I am about Vday this year! Mainly because our 5-year-old is in school and she finally understands what holidays are! With another baby finding time to go on dates is hard but maybe we can do a “family date”.

I am over all happy with how this look turned out. I absolutely love the halo look.

Valentines Day 4

I personally like pink for Vday because red reminds me too much of Christmas lol. So I did a pink eye look with a rose gold halo and paired it with pink lips!

Valentines day1

I achieved this look using only ONE palette! I know crazy! I normally like to mix and get a little from here and there. Not this time! I used the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Edition. 

Valentines Day 6

For a transition shade I used Shy. On the crease I used Flamingo. On the outer and inner corner I did Maneater. In the center of the lid I picked Angelic which is a rose gold. At the end once I applied eyeliner I deepened the inner and outer corner with the shade Bossy. 

Valentines Day 3

For highlight I used my Wet n Wild I talked about in this post. I added that to the highest points of my cheekbones, my cupids bow, nose, and inner eye.

Also on the lips I did MAC’s Spice paired with NYX’s Sao Paolo. 

I had so much fun creating this look. And I hope you enjoyed it also. Now, lets all agree to ignore my ragedy faded hair 🤣 (ps. I love snapchat filters. LOL)

Do you have any big plans for this Valentine’s Day? 

Fave Highlights!

Fave Highlights!

I had every intention of today’s post being a Valentine’s Day look. . . until I realized I would’ve had to pick up my daughter from school in a full face of holiday makeup. Now normally I don’t care for stuff like that but I also didn’t want to do my hair. And a Valentine’s Day look requires a nice do!

So instead I bring you my favorite part of makeup, HIGHLIGHT! For a long time I was a devoted Mary Louminizer addict until it broke and I haven’t gotten around to buying a new one. This tragedy forced me to venture out and try new products. Today I bring you variation.

I’ve included affordable and liquid highlights!

Fave Highlights 2

My die-hard favorite and OG is Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey. For an olive warm/neutral complexion like mine this highlight pairs so well. When it says it’s an illuminator it definitely is. It melts right on the skin to look so natural and radiant. It wears so well throughout the day and doesn’t fade. It retails for $26 but it’s so worth every penny!

Fave Highlights 6

Up next is Maybelline’s FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold. Molten Gold  in my opinion reminds me so much of Gilded Honey. Except Molten Gold has a more peach undertone where Gilded Honey is a true gold. (I will include swatches)

Fave Highlights 5

Molten Gold is a beautiful affordable highlight except it doesn’t last all day like my Laura Geller Gilded Honey. I’ve noticed that after a while it starts to fade. Which isn’t bad and its so subtle it can definitely be worn every single day to add a touch of glow to your look. This retails for $9.99.

Fave Highlights 7

When you hear “drug store products” people often think cheap worthless makeup. Wet n Wild is from far that. While it is VERY affordable its products are all that and more! It has easily become my favorite brand for highlights since it only retails for $4.99 its a steal. While I own some of the other shades this MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Botanic Dream is my favorite because its pink! Naturally I only wear it on Wednesday 😜 JK

Fave Highlights 9

This is another highlight that provides a beautiful sheen of glow without being powdery or over bearing. Highlights can sometimes be too much and I opt for more of a natural glow formula. . . as if we glowed in pink. LOL! When I want an intense look I will pair this with my  Colourpop Highlight 

Fave Highlights 10

Last in my Faves collection is NYX’s Born to Glow Illuminator in Gleam. This is another shade that goes very well with my complexion. I often opt to wear this alone when I only do mascara and eyebrow gel.

I mentioned in another post how dry my skin has been and how I mixed a liquid highlight with my primer and this is it! It’s so versatile in the sense it can be worn alone, layered with another highlight for a brighter look, and over makeup as just a highlight on its own. NYX is another brand that’s very affordable with great products.

It retails for $7.49!! STEAL!!

I had so much fun with this post because I absolutely love these products. They’re so beautiful, affordable, and FUN!

What are some of your favorite highlighters? Do you like high-end or drugstore better?

Makeup Of The Week

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??

Until next time. . .

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!

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. . .

Ipsy February Glam Bag

Ipsy February Glam Bag

This months Ipsy’s glam bag was themed “Much Love”. dsc_0140The bag is a denim material with a bright orange zipper. I’ve had Ipsy for over a year and I’m happy with it. I’ve been introduced to some amazing companies and with their discounts and promotions I’ve gotten so many great items for cheap.

dsc_0157

One of those great things I’ve been introduced to and have purchased myself is Luxie Beauty products. I like that they’re vegan and synthetic. Through Ipsy I’ve gotten an angled brush I use in my every day routine for blush. This here is their actual blush brush which I read was good for applying highlight.

Purchased with their 30% off offer I got several eye brushes. I AM OBSESSED! They’ve all been rose gold but they have onyx noir and the dreamcatcher collection which is a pretty periwinkle.

 dsc_0159

Up next is NYX’s butter lipstick. I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know if I love it, yet. I usually love NYX products so I can’t wait to try it. These retail for  $6 on the NYX website

“Treat your lips to a kiss of smooth, creamy color with our irresistible Butter Lipsticks in 12 new luscious shades. The formula’s delicate satin texture fused with highly saturated color delivers full-yet-lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish.” –NYX

dsc_0161

I’ve received many bellapierre products and with them its a hit or miss. Some I’ve loved some I hated. . . Hate is such a strong word, I’ve disliked. LOL! This is the Volumelash waterproof mascara. I haven’t tried it but as I was checking it out I noted it has no smell (yay) and the bristles are spaced which means it’ll work awesome to separate the lashes.

“The innovative brush and formula of Volume Lash Waterproof Mascara provide thicker, fuller lashes that won’t clump or flake throughout the day. Vitamin E and Castor Oil work to strengthen lashes, ensuring lashes stay healthy and beautiful.” –bellapierre  

dsc_0168

I’ve been giving myself my own manicures since having the baby because there is no time to go to a nail salon so of course I was excited when I saw I was getting this product. The color itself is a little funky and it seems to have separated in the bottle. This could be because it sat in our mailbox for a few days in Florida heat. I’ve never tried any of this company’s products but I have high hopes because it is vegan and cruelty free. The name of the polish is $12 latte, how cute?!? Trust Fund Beauty

dsc_0166dsc_0164 This products reminds me of something similar I own and I swear by. The Sephora Collection: Solid Brush Cleaner. I LOVE IT! I am hoping I love this just as much because it smells amazing. This is the Japonesque Coconut Solid Brush Cleaner. It is a goat milk formula product . . . kinda weird. This is sold at Ulta I’m not sure where else.

” Maintain the beauty of your brushes with Japonesque’s gentle goat-milk cleansing balm in this Solid Brush Cleanser. Effective emollient formula quickly dissolves make-up and impurities to deep cleanse and condition your brush bristles for effortless professional brush cleaning. Freshly scented and coconut scented solid formulas deliver instant mess-free results and is the perfect travel-friendly cleansing companion.” –Ulta 

The next Wet N Wild highlights came with my bag because I redeemed points. With Ipsy for every product you review you get points and when you accumulate enough points you can redeem them for products. I’ve done this plenty of times for stuff I’ve received in my bag and wanted more of. I’m not sure if these highlights were the ones everyone was raving about but for free I can’t complain. I honestly stick to two highlighters. My Laura Geller Gilded Honey and the Balms Mary-Lou Manizer. It’s exciting to try new stuff.

First up is Crown of my Canopy which is a peachy color and the second is Precious Petals which is a gold shade. I didn’t swatch them but I did look up reviews and everyone seems to love them! Yay!! Do you own these highlighting powders? Do you love them?

dsc_0142

dsc_0147

Over all I was so pleased with my Feb Ipsy bag. I’ve been debating whether to keep my subscription or not but every time I go to cancel it I see next months products and I just can’t. I have noticed the bags have improved the more I review what I receive so if you have an Ipsy subscription make sure you’re reviewing. Not only will it personalize your bag it will rack up those points! lol!

How was your Ipsy bag? Do you have any of these products, thoughts??

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!
