Reverse Nose Contour 🤔
On Tik Tok, under the #beautyhacks a user named @/georgieclarke had a hack for nose contouring, but in an unique way. I wanted to try this to see if it worked! . Materials needed: setting powder, a triangle sponge, warm toned-blush, highlighter, and bronzer. . Accomplishes: a contoured nose, but without the hard steps it typically involves. . Steps: first, use the triangle sponge to put setting powder down the sides of the nose, brush the warm-toned blush on the center of the nose nose, then use a brush to dust the setting powder off and blend the blush so there aren’t harsh lines, dust highlighter on the bridge of nose and tip, then slightly bronze the septum (the dividing piece of the nostrils, not sure what to call it 😂). . Does it work? I used the KVD Setting Powder and the Smashbox Ablaze Face Palette (for the blush, highlighter, and contour). I used the steps I stated above with the products I just mentioned to try this tip out (the last pic is the whole final look). I had a little bit of a difficult time getting a straight line with the triangle beauty sponge, maybe I’m just not used to using it. My blush was also a little more pigmented than I thought, so I really had to blend to not look like I had a sunburnt nose lol. It was pretty easy to follow the steps though and you don’t need many materials, basically things that you probably already own. For me, this was a lot easier than trying to contour my nose with bronzer! This will definitely be easier once I really get the hang of it. I would definitely recommend this, especially to those that find typical nose contour challenging or want a quick way to get ready in the morning! ✅

Zoom Wedding Makeup!
as i posed recently, one of my girls was getting married! here’s my makeup look to zoom in and be a virtual bridesmaid 🥰🥰 i started with the NYX - Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand this stuff is great as long as you set it! then, i moved on to the NYX - Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil which is so good as a light foundation! e.l.f. - 50 Color Eye & Face Palette i used the contour out of this palette and a light gray to blend into the colors i already had on my eye.... URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow this is my favorite eyeshadow of all time. even when i was bad at makeup, this looked good. Too Faced - Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo i broke this unfortunately and had to blend the colors together. it’s still a shimmery flush that i don’t even have to use highlighter with ❤️ pixi - Brow Tamer the best to tame my crazy brows
e.l.f.-50 Color Eye & Face Palette
some new makeup developments for me!
So! i’m not good at contouring, never have been. BUT today, i used bronzer effectively! i was so excited and nervous lol and it came out really pretty and i’m very excited about it. i used a lot of too faced stuff for this shiny glowy look (inspired by Bailey Sarian’s 90’s makeup look tbh) and overall this was an incident free application process. as usual, many of these products are my favs and i adore them, but i did want to talk a little bit about the MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer i actually meant to buy the concealer when i bought this, but it is the PERFECT summer shade for me. using a wet beauty blender i really pounded it into my skin and honestly, this is the nicest i have ever gotten a foundation to look on me. it’s very creamy and buildable, and honestly for 10 dollars how could you go wrong? i have medium skin during the summertime (i tan easily) so darker shades work best for me and honestly, i feel like i’m glowing AND have nothing on. Strong recommendation! hope you all have a wonderful day and try this foundation (or any of the other products here) and experiment!
My Everyday Makeup Routine for a Natural Look
I’m a natural-makeup kind of gal all year round. But, I emphasize this in the spring and summer! The warmer weather is the perfect time to emphasize glowy and dewy skin topped off with a glossy lip. Of course, everyone’s different! This is what works for me, though. I start with this Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot primer. It’s the closest thing I could find to Benefit’s iconic POREfessional! The results are almost identical and it costs a fraction of the price. Then, if I’m using any foundation at all, it’s Maybelline’s classic Fit Me. This formula has served me well since high school. Since I don’t use foundation too much in the warmer months, this is perfect for a quick look. For my face, I love Milani’s blushes. They’re so cute and the color is nearly perfect for my skin tone. I love the way it blends with my NYX bronzer, too. For my eyes, I’m still obsessed with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette! It’s super versatile and I love putting Adorn on my lid, Mercury in my crease and Electric in my inner corner. My eyebrows and lips are the easiest steps. On my brows, I usually just fill them in with a light brown eyeshadow very gently. Or, I’ll simply coat them with this Maybelline clear mascara! It works well on eyebrows, too, when you just want a natural look. However, if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll go in with Benefit’s Gimme Brow. It’s a cult classic for a reason! The application is super easy and it lasts a long time! I just don’t have one on me right now. Quarantine life🤷🏼♀️. Even though I’m spending a lot of time inside in my sweats these days, I like to pamper myself with a light makeup look on some days! That’s why I’ve been focusing on using up my drugstore products vs splurging on anything super expensive. But, some exciting stuff is in the works from our favorite brands! I’m soooo excited to review those😊.

2020 Summer “Sweet Treats” Themed Makeup
For those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere, Summer is just around the corner, and things are already heating up, and it’s not just the weather, honey! In the next few months, half the world will be heading into springtime, and that brings fresh fashion, bright colours, and fierce makeup with it. Here’s how you can create a quick, easy, “sweet treats” themed makeup look to match your shining summertime personality. Complexion Work: For my base makeup, I used REVOLUTION - Fast Base Stick Foundation in shade F3. I concealed with the help of REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in shade C1. I contoured my cheeks using Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit, in shade light/medium. I then applied a soft layer of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Leena. I also used NYX - Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in “Mermaid Amour” for an iridescent shine. Colourful Sweet Treats Eye Makeup: Moving on to the eyes, I used theMORPHE - The James Charles Palette for the whole look. I started off by packing on “Pinkity Drinkity” onto the inner half of my eyelid and crease. I then took a light dab of “Skip”, then more Pinkity Drinkity on the same brush to deepen the shade slightly and make it more of a soft but vibrant pink. For darker skin tones, you may want to use more Skip to create a brighter colour. Next up is shade “518”, which I took on a small blending brush and packed onto the outer corner of my eyelid, sweeping inward diagonally toward my lash line. Similarly, I pulled that orange shade outwards towards the tail of my brow, and softly blended it into my pink shadows. I also pulled some of 518 onto the outer third of my lower lash line. To complete the lower lash line, I used shade “Bee” to bring some lightness and brightness to the inner portion of my eye, blending it into 518 along the way. For a final pop of summery colour, I packed shade “Hello” onto a small pencil brush, and spritzed it with a setting spray, before packing it onto the inner corner of my eye. The super shiny effect of the shadow and its lustrous, tropical colour really added a fun and fabulous edge to the themed look. I finished the eyes off with a little black eyeshadow on the outer half of my upper lash line, and some MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara on my lashes, and there you have it! A quick, easy summer makeup look for all levels of makeup lovers. Would you like to see some “how to guides” for more wearable, colourful looks? Comment what colours you’d like to learn how to wear during the daytime!

Current Drugstore Favourites
With all of the different brands and products out there it can be really hard to find quality products for a reasonable price. These are my current favourite beauty buys that are guaranteed to become your go-to’s, and the best part? They are all from the drugstore so won’t cost you an arm and a leg!! FLOWER - Flower Pots Powder Blush This blush is easy to blend, has buildable coverage and the formula is super creamy and buttery. It’s not super pigmented but I prefer it like this so I can build up the colour and avoid applying too much. REVOLUTION - Foil Frenzy Eyeshadow Palette These aren’t like typical foil eyeshadows that I’ve tried where they are difficult to apply and end up looking creased on my hooded eyes. The colours are gorgeous and super pigmented and creamy. Although it’s only foiled pigments in the palette there’s a good range of colours and I’ve been using it almost every day! Quick Beauty - Eyeliner Stamp Intense Black I’ve been using this on mornings when I’m in a rush. The liner itself dries matte and doesn’t smudge or transfer to my eyelid as well. They have a few different sizes to choose from, I have been using the “To The Point” liner which is the perfect thickness for my hooded eyes. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara I have gone through a few bottles now and it never fails to make my eyelashes thicker and longer. It reminds me of the “Better Than Sex” mascara because of the thick wand and I find it makes it easier to apply and also less time consuming. MAYBELLINE - FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter I absolutely love the formula of this highlighter! It’s super buttery and buildable and gives the best glow. For those with fair complexion be careful of applying too much because it is a little too dark for my tone, but I usually mix it in with a cool toned highlighter to avoid this. SPOT MEDIC - Hydrocolloid Mask I use these on days when I know I’m not leaving home or over night. For smaller blemishes they are great at reducing inflammation and redness. For larger cystic acne I don’t see a great difference however it prevents me from picking at my skin hence why I’ve been using them so much!
