MAKE UP FOR EVER
New Season, New Makeup faves!
And a new haircut?! Omg, my first quarantine haircut and it’s been making me feel refreshed and reset for the fall season. ✨Want to know what else I’m loving about fall besides the sweaters and leaves changing color? Heated colors and eyeshadow palettes are back in style. I’ve discovered some new makeup that I’m excited can be added to my holy grail counter. Check it out! ✨Started my base off with Supergoop! - Zincscreen 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 40 PA+++ which is easy to reapply throughout the day while keeping the rest your makeup easy to touch up along with it without any weird pilling/ other layering issues whatsoever. ✨My eyebrows are already pretty thick, so no need to color in sparse areas. I grabbed Glossier. - Boy Brow in translucent and it keeps my brows with nice volume, lift where I want and hold all day. Love this! Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo in Dusk and Beam were mixed together for a natural-looking, sunkissed flush. I also used excess product from Beam onto my eyelids and there’s been no creasing! This product works well with your fingers or with a foundation brush that has a thick surface area with lots of fibers closely wound together. It spreads so nicely either way- a little goes a long way! ✨I used CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara and while my lashes lengthen and become wonderfully defined, I wish the price point were a tad lower. Looking into something less expensive with the same results! ✨I’ve been so tired lately! New schedule and longer work hours. To brighten my eyes, I’ve gotten SEPHORA COLLECTION - 12hr Colorful Contour Eyeliner in their pearlescent off-white color, and I apppied that baby along the inside of my bottom lash line. Makes such a big difference making my eyes look bigger and brighter! On my lips, I’ve got MINERAL FUSION - Sheer Moisture Lip Tint on in Glisten- this lovely neutral peach that totally matches Glossier’s Beam for this nice monochromatic look. My lips feel so hydrated and look plump and healthy! While it does transfer, not a big deal to me at all- it’s a more eco-friendly company that can pack some great ingredients into their products. ✨Lastly, added this beautiful metallic, burnt umber eyeshadow, MEECH N MIA - MEECH N MIA Loose Eyeshadows in Copper, which can be applied SO easily in so many ways! Long-lasting shimmer that looks amazing with so many matte eyeshadow layers underneath. With it being loose, highly encourage finishing spray though! Otherwise, it’s the perfect loose metallic pot shadow. What looks have you been trying out for fall? Let me know in the comments ✨🙌🏼
Glossier Worth The Hype?💫
So as you may know, Glossier is a VERY popular brand but mostly for its aesthetics. But here we are reviewing more than the aesthetics. Let’s talk about what products are worth the hype🙂. Glossier. - The Skincare Edit The skincare.... So they have a 𝗷𝗲𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗿 and what from i heard off, its JUST a normal cleanser, nothing special. Honestly it’s very overpriced for a small normal cleanser. 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿: Just a normal moisturizer too🙂. Very soft. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘂𝗺𝘀: Glossier. - The Super PackGlossiers serums are actually not as mad as I thought, still pricey but not as bad. Many people don’t see a change while using them and others do so it always depends but if you have the money, buying these hopefully will not be a let down. Glossier. - Mask Duo𝗠𝗮𝘀𝗸𝘀: nothing special, makes your face soft🌸 𝙉𝙚𝙭𝙩 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙈𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙪𝙥: Glossier. - Cloud Paint DuoGlossier. - Lash Slick MascaraThis product is TOTALLY worth it. Really pigmented and very good for your makeup🥰. Also the mascara is a normal good mascara! Glossier. - Niteshine Highlighter ConcentrateGlossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝗜𝘁. Lastly the 𝗹𝗶𝗽𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗸𝘀 are good and many have said 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗼𝘀𝗰𝗼𝗽𝗲Glossier. - Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter is not good cause it barley gives anything. What’s your experience with glossier?

Birthday Haul! 🥳
It’s my birthday soon and naturally, this is a great excuse to treat myself! Here’s all the products I got: TOWER 28 - ShineOn Milky Lip Jelly Gloss MAYBELLINE - Facestudio Glass-Skin Makeup Finishing Spray Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter Avène - Cold Cream Nourishing Lip Balm (Can’t seem to find the e.l.f finishing powder 🤔) DERMA•E - Ultra Hydrating Serum COVERGIRL - The Super Sizer Mascara HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial(this came as a sample with my Sephora order) I can’t wait to try all of these products and review them!
Milk Hydro Grip Primer
Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Ok so I normally LOVE milk cosmetics. I opened this sample packet we got for a sephora birthday and IMMEDIATELY was taken aback by the smell. It was so chemically and toxic scented. I was hesitant to even put it on my face, but I did anyways, thinking it would be worth it if the reviews here were correct. As soon as I put it on my face, it started burning. You can see in the second picture how red it made my face. It also made me break out. I was ready to take it off but I decided to wait and see if it was good. I know it’s a grip primer, and I’ve worked with grip primers before, but it’s the stickiest thing I’ve ever put on my face. I only gave it a 2 star rating because makeup applied well afterwards. Would not recommend. 😔
sustainable beauty spotlight 🔦
kaleido cosmetics is cruelty-free, vegan, talc-free, phthalate-free, and paraben free. ingredients + colors are ethically sourced and the founder personally visits all suppliers to ensure no child labor is used during the mining of their mica. I haven’t spent too much time with these products, but I’m already really liking the gold glitter shade in the palette. when I first opened the black eyeliner it seemed to be dry, but after recapping it and leaving it alone for a while it seems a lot more pigmented. I think it’s important to look into sustainable brands in an effort to support them and increase their space in the beauty community. I hadn’t heard of this brand before, have you?

New makeup to play with! 🥳 (swatches)
Kaleido Cosmetics reached out asking if I’d like to try some products from their range and they just came in! Kaleido Cosmetics is a young, cruelty-free, vegan, paraben-free, phthalate-free brand that aims to use organic and plant-based ingredients wherever possible. Their products are meant to give off a “wanderlust” type of vibe and be easy and fun to use. I’ll have proper reviews of these soon, just wanted to give you all my first impressions and share some swatches 😋 They kindly sent over their KALEIDO COSMETICS - Glow Balm - Lip & Cheek Jelly in shade watermelon and pomegranate. This is such a cool product! It feels like a jelly and can be used on both lips and cheeks. They also send their KALEIDO COSMETICS - Kaleido Cosmetics Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner which is just your basic felt tip eyeliner, it swatched super pigmented. The KALEIDO COSMETICS - Muse Skin - Ultra-Fine Pearl Illuminator is a super creamy powder highlight, but I think it’s probably a little too golden for my liking. I’m most excited about the KALEIDO COSMETICS - Golden Hour Eyeshadow Palette !! These colors are gorgeous. This is an entirely satin/shimmer palette. Every single shadow swatched beautifully, super smooth and pigmented. I can’t wait to try these on my eyes ✨ What’s a product you’ve been loving lately? Or something you’re excited to get soon? ☺️
Nail Care | No other product "works as good" 🔥
OPI - Nail Envy Original $17.95 Provides maximum strengthening for: ● Harder ● Longer ● Stronger ● Natural nails to envy WHAT I LIKE: ● Dried quickly ● Helped make nail varnish last longer ● Easy to apply WHAT I DISLIKE: ● I would like a more obvious improvement in splitting nails ● May not suit those who prefer a more natural matte finish Let's just get straight to the point: This stuff WORKS!!!!!!! 🔥🔥🔥 DO NOT waste anymore money on any other products. Pictures speak for themselves. Nail Envy by OPI is literally the best nail strengthening polish out there. My nails became so strong and are actually growing. I recommend this product to everyone who has trouble growing your nails. I've wasted probably about 200 some odd dollars on nail strengthening polish. I wont specify brands, but I've literally tried everything out there. From drugstore brands, to super fancy one's. I've been disappointed so many times that I had practically given up. I accepted the fact that I have weak nails, and that I'll never be able to grow natural, nice, long nails. With that said, I settled for acrylics (which I hate with a passion). I had acrylics off and on for about 3 years, damaging my nail bed more and more. When I would remove the acrylics to let my nails breathe for a day or two, they were brittle, thin, easily breakable and not at all attractive. Fast forward a few years of putting up with acrylics, nails chipping, breaking, and painful throbbing, I became fed up with the entire thing and went on a hunt for the best nail strengthening product and this time, I was determined to find one. After many hours of research, I found consistently good reviews about OPI Nail Envy so I thought, what would it hurt to try one more thing? I've been using the product religiously for the past 9 months, and I am nothing less than impressed and shocked. My nails are growing longer than I am used to (even with the acrylics I would get) so I am a satisfied customer to say the least. They are strong and healthy, and while they're not completely break-proof (obviously), I've banged them several times here and there and they've held up for the most part. This product is a miracle. How to Use: Apply two coats to clean, dry nails with cuticles pushed back, followed by one coat every other day. After one week, use any OPI Polish Remover to remove all Nail Envy and nail lacquer, if present. Begin application again. Nail Envy works best to strengthen nails as a base coat in actual contact with the natural nail. It can also be used as a top coat over nail lacquer. Results vary by individual and are dependent on the initial condition of your nails. Disclaimer: you DO have to be patient. It's not going to happen overnight. It requires consistency, and a lot of patience. And having to deal with your nails being bare for a month or so. Sharing is caring.
Grow long nails!
My nails are the longest and healthiest they’ve ever been and a few things are making a huge difference! 💅🏾 no acrylics, dip powders or gel - this was driven by quarantine because I used to be in the salon like every two weeks but now its a blessing! 💅🏾 collagen supplements! Been taking copina co - Original Beauty Plant Based Collagen Boost Drink Powder and the Cacao Beauty flavor in my coffee everyday 💅🏾 HUM - Killer Nails Supplements are my current nail supplements, I also used NUTRAFOL - Hair Loss Thinning Supplement and THE Mane CHOICE - Manetabolism Plus Healthy Hair Vitamin Dietary Supplements earlier in quarantine. Both of which were for hair but have serious nail health benefits too 💅🏾 Onyx Brands - Hard as Hoof Nail Strengthening Cream read an article that this was highest rated and most purchased nail strengthener on amazon so I had to try it! Plus it smells like coconuts and is amazing. So great for keeping my cuticles moisturized which promotes nail growth and health Also whenever I have a small break, crack or tear in my nails - I use the teabag trick ( layer of nail glue, layer of teabag,layer of nail glue) to reinforce the crack and preserve my nail length.
Flesh Beauty Touch Flesh Highlighting Balm
This highlighter is easily one of my favorites. Even though it is a pink toned highlight (shade name is Pinky) it can match quite a few different shades of blush. I prefer to apply this by rubbing my fingers at the top and tapping it on the high points of my face. It doesn’t fade throughout the day either. Just a really lovely highlight. flesh - Touch Highlighting Balm
I absolutely love Flesh makeup because it wears beautifully, looks natural and is affordable! I checks all the boxes for me including cruelty free 🤗 the eye & cheek pots made makeup fun again for me & the highlighting balms are stunning! Easy to use & gorgeous! #flesh flesh - FLESHPOT Eye & Cheek Gloss flesh - Touch Highlighting Balm

a lovely, lovely setting powder
I’ve tried a number of setting powders, but none of them live up to this one! The laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a lovely translucent powder that doesn’t settle into fine lines, that helps to absorb that excess oil, and that sets my makeup. This setting powder comes in translucent (for very fair to medium skin tones), honey (for medium skin tones with olive, warm, and golden undertones), and translucent medium deep (for medium deep to deep skin tones). I have the translucent shade and I don’t find it to be too light for my medium skin tone, rather it just kind of blends in with my skin tone. I like that it absorbs excess grease on my face, but also doesn’t smother my face or clog my pores. Highly recommend!

Tower 28 Bronzino
Cue Golden by Harry Styles 🤩🤩🤩 Would you believe when I said that I took this today right before a hurricane is about to hit? It’s kind of weird how nice the weather can be right before a big storm is about to happen. The sun light was just hitting right on my new fave by @tower28beauty Bronzino!!!! - My obsession over T28 is honestly not okay. I love all of their products so so much and they’re incorporated into my makeup routine pretty much everyday. They are all so easy to apply and so buildable. Okay enough of me raving about how much I love them lets talk about the bronzer 🤎 I ordered the Bronzino in the shade West Coast and girl I immediately fell in love. It’s so creamy and gives you such a gorgeous sun kissed look!! I like to apply it with my fingers and either blend it out with a brush or beauty blender. You can make it look as subtle or dramatic as you want which I really enjoy. I also really like using this as a cream eyeshadow to add some color to my lid. My only thing is that I do wish they had better shade range being that they only have two shades 🥴 I do think they’re working on that though but I’m not 100% positive. Let me put you on the T28 wave okay? Okay - Anyone else going to take part in no buy August?? I seriously need to take a break from spending and use all of the products I have!
Check out this highlight! ✨
Check out this highlight! ✨ I just uploaded a review on it as well as one one that bright under eye powder I used for this look! No foundation or concealer, these are the products by themselves!
Simple Dewy Makeup Tutorial ✨💄
I’m no expert on makeup, but I do have fun creating different looks. This is just a more natural everyday look. Products Used: BECCA - Zero No Pigment Virtual Foundation lol this is definitely a “gimmick” and I knew that when I bought it. It’s basically a primer, but it’s actually quite hydrating and very cooling when you apply it to the face. It does blur our imperfections so 👍🏻 for that! MORPHE - Hint Hint Skin Tint in “Ivory.” This has a serum-like consistency and it gives light-medium coverage. It’s lightweight and hydrating giving you that dewy, glowy finish! tarte - SEA Hydrocealer Concealer I love hydrating products. I tend to be more on the dry side, but it also adds to the dewy finish. tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in “Captivating.” I love this shade. Nuff said. Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette MORPHE - Morphe X Manny MUA Glam Palette I used the shade “Zaya” on the lid and “Apollo” for my highlight. I love me some Manny and his Morphe palette is so great for creating everyday makeup looks. Glossier. - Boy Brow + Brow Flick Duo in “Brown.” I’m still loving this duo. tarte - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara this mascara is buildable, but my favorite things about it is the lifting and lengthening effect it gives my lashes. COLOURPOP - So Juicy Plumping Gloss it’s cute and not too sticky!

the cutest BLUSH! 💕
I am in love with thisKaja - Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush and I can’t stop using it! I’ve always been a huge blush fan and I’ve tried so many different kinds from pressed powders, cream blushes, liquid blush, etc. So when I saw this HEART SHAPED STAMP BLUSH from Kaja on the Sephora website, I knew I had to try it out. It’s one of the most unique makeup products I’ve ever discovered and definitely the cutest blush I own. 💕 THE BLUSH 💕 This is a cushion blush with a sponge applicator in the shape of a heart! This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. 💕APPLICATION / HOW TO USE IT 💕 This blush comes with a twistable top that has the heart sponge applicator and a bottom pot with the blush cushion color. APPLICATION STEPS 1. Twist off the top (and admire how cute the heart is) 2. Open the bottom with the color 3. Press the top part with the heart sponge down into the cushion blush pot so it can absorb the color 4. Press it onto your cheeks! 5. You can then use your fingers to blend it into your skin and apply more for the desired color opacity! TIPS One stamp gives a nice natural flushed glow, two or more gives a brighter blush look. (Personally, I like to apply as much blush as possible before I get called out for looking like I spent too much time in the sun... but it’s to hide the fact that I haven’t really left my house to go outside in weeks anyways so it’s okay!) I like to press the sponge into the bottom a few times so it can absorb as much of the color from the cushion as possible 💕WHY I LOVE IT 💕 It’s one thing for a product to be cute, but I need it to work well too! Thankfully, this blush is both adorable and incredibly functional. It’s so creamy and pigmented and easily blendable and buildable! It’s also so nice to look at and fun to use, making my ritual of applying makeup even more exciting because it really is just so cute. Have you guys ever tried this product before? I would love to hear your thoughts! Or if anyone has any other recommendations for adorable makeup that just makes you smile and makes the process even more fun than it already is, please let me know because I am officially obsessed with finding ~cute~ products!

Baby Face Transformed Instantly! Here’s What I Do
Yes, anyone can contour - basically you just need to trace the natural angles and shadow on your face. However, having a round, not-so-defined face myself, I understand this face type brings about its unique hurdles when it comes to contouring - well, we don’t have too many natural angles to trace! I appreciate my baby face which makes me appear younger than my actual age, though sometimes I do need to have a maturer, more defined look. Here’s how I transform my face using contouring techniques! Contouring and highlighting? Well, both are important for creating dimensions but I found contouring more essential for me. I use ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush which contains a duo of sculpting bronzer (#29) and luminizer (#27), conveniently serving both purposes. The product comes in a metallic golden case, and its quality matches this luxurious-looking packaging. It’s powder formula but the texture feels super silky, easy to spread on skin. The warm, red-brown shade of the bronzer matches my skin tone, and you should always choose a product three shades darker than your skin tone that keeps within your same undertone family. The luminizer creates a soft lustre that’s subtle yet noticeable - as I said I don’t always use the highlighter, but I love the sheen it adds to a matte finish after contouring. Where to contour? I start with the sides of my forehead and along my temples to make this area appear more narrow. You can also throw a bit along your hairline. Next I draw a contour line underneath the cheekbone, from the ear to the end of the eye. Then a curved line down the jaw line to lengthen the look of my face and make it slimmer. To finish, sometimes I highlight my cheekbones and brow bones to add more dimension. Don’t forget to blend! It’s important for a natural finish. There’s a fluffy blush in the palette that I like to use for blending the contour into my foundation. I move the blush in gentle, circular motions until the point where all the contour lines on my face are thoroughly blended yet still defined. This way, my face looks more sculpted, angular, slimmer, and most importantly, still natural. Bottom line is, contouring shouldn’t be done the exact same way for individuals with different face shape. Also, now the trend is to really embrace and accentuate your natural features!
ESTĒE LAUDER-Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush
fav liquid blush! 💕💞💘
i’ve been on the lookout for liquid blushes since i started wearing less powder and aiming for a more dewy look! the makeup brand Freck sent me some goodies a lil bit ago and they included this cheek slime! it’s in the shade “cuffed” and it has become a new fav! 💕 often with liquid blushes i’ve used in the past they’ve been patchy or hard to blend, but this product does the opposite! it’s super pigmented and easy to blend and you could go for a light wash of color or a more intense blush! 💞 i use a real techniques cheek brush to blend it out in an upwards motion after i put on my foundation and concealer but BEFORE powder! so that the blush blends easily into the rest of your makeup! i highly recommend this blush to any blush lover looking to add another to their collection 🍓✨💕💘💞 Freck BEAUTY - CHEEKSLIME Lip + Cheek Tint with Plant Collagen REAL TECHNIQUES - Instapop Cheek Brush
