🍨What’s prefect for summer - my go-to list🍨
Heyyyy guys! How are you? 🤗 Today I'd like to share with you my go-to list in summer. As you know, we have been recommended for hundreds of products every single day in this loving community. So what products I have saved in my go-to list lol? Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara
Set it and forget it?
Are you like me and own something in the neighborhood of 10 setting sprays? 😂🤦🏻♀️ I have some cheaper ones and some really expensive ones including URBAN DECAY - De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray which I really love but it’s pricey. (To me anyway) So when I found this Valjean Labs Matte setting spray at TJ Maxx for $5.99 of course I bought it! VALJEAN LABS - Valjean Labs Facial Mist This is a matte facial spray with ingredients like Kaolin and vitamin E. I paid $5.99 for a 6 oz. bottle which is huge. I doubt very seriously I will be able to use this up by its expiration date. Claims: Refreshes your skin and help maximizes your look. ALL-DAY, ALL-NIGHT WEAR: This mist contains ingredients that help hydrate your skin while setting your makeup for long-lasting wear. KAOLIN: Works to help control excess oil production and manage shine to create a perfect, long-lasting matte finish. VITAMIN E: Helps moisturize and protect skin from irritation. My experience: I only use this after I apply makeup which if really not much lately with COVID. I mist my face with about 2-3 sprays and let dry. The mister works well to cover almost your entire face with 1 spray so I probably overdo it 😂 It doesn’t have much of a scent whatsoever and I love that. Once it dries, my face feels almost cool and silky. It definitely does moisturize while stating matte. No makeup spray combats my T-zone for 24 hours. That’s a pipe dream really 😂 but, this spray works as well as the Urban Decay and lasts about 6-7 hours at most and honestly I’m fine with that! Verdict: This spray works as well as the more expensive Urban Decay and also comes in a much larger size. I also think this setting spray has better ingredients than the urban decay as well. This is definitely a budget babe find ❤️❤️ Have you tried this? What’s your fav setting spray?
KEEP YOUR FACE ON ALL DAY!🌞🌙
for someone with very oily skin, even just standing around all day, my skin will be oily in a couple hrs which means my face will start breaking down my makeup very quickly 😭 Everyone wants their makeup to last all day if not for the duration of their even end for me, this is my life saver!💞 I have been using the URBAN DECAY - De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray for YEARS! And I haven’t been able to stop buying it! I have tried many setting sprays over time but nothing has locked down my makeup all day like this has! It not only works, but the spray doesn’t leave big chunks of the product on your skin, and if it does, it’s very easy to pat it into the skin with your beauty sponge! 👍🏽 I have gone all day un my makeup without my makeup braking down on me and I’ve also worn this out to night events where there would be a ton of dancing or movement so of course sweaty makeup is not cute 🙅🏽♀️ however even after hrs of dancing, my makeup lasted completely untouched till the end of the night 😱 The first selfie is during the day and the other is at the end of the night! I can’t stay enough good things! I know some people don’t want to cough up the money for the spray but it’s worth every penny because it truly does work! 🤗
My GO-TO Foundations for Different Seasons
My skin always behaves differently during different times of the year due to changes in the climate. Therefore, in order to achieve a perfect base makeup at all times, I alternate between foundations with different textures and slightly different shades to accommodate my skin conditions. My GO-TO foundation for summer: Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30 ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30 My skin tends to become extra oily in the summer and I hate to put on heavy base makeup that ends up melting anyways in the hot weather. After trials of many foundations, I have settled for this product because of its watery texture that feels very light on the skin, yet, surprisingly long-lasting finish. Although the coverage is only light to medium, I still love the finish of this foundation because it blends beautifully into the skin, allowing me to achieve that my-skin-but-better effect. It is also great for occasions where you just want to have a natural and radiant look. This is absolutely one of my favourite foundations that I would definitely repurchase! Not to mention it has SPF 30, perfect to block out the harsh sunlight during summer times. My GO-TO foundation for seasonal changes: YSL Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation During seasonal changes, my skin would become dry and flaky, therefore, I always choose a hydrating foundation to prevent my base makeup from creasing and caking up. This product is my top pick because it is very hydrating and leaves a dewy finish that makes my skin look glowing and healthy. This foundation has a very unique texture: at first it is in a creamier texture but instantly turns watery when you spread it out, which feels very hydrating and refreshing. I am also truly impressed by its medium coverage given its thin texture! Most of the redness and blemishes on my face can be covered. However, the glow would highlight uneven skin texture, so I would not recommend it for people with this problem.
How I created this look
I recommend all these products except the too faced better than sex mascara I feel like you can get a way better mascara to make the look more dramatic

Can someone tell me why I’m mentally conditioned to want to buy ANYTHING new Glossier releases?? Regardless of whether I actually want it or need it?? And then once I get it I end up ALSO getting like every other thing that I may or may not have emptied yet? What should we call this?? Glossi-itis?? Glossi-ism?? Anyway. I got the new fig balm dot com bc idk about y’all but I do love me some figs!! Deets on my haul: Since I’ve worn zero makeup in the last 8 months I had to re-up on my boy brow since my old one is crusty and dried up. I still feel like there are better brow products out there but again...Glossier-itis came for me. Glossier. - Boy Brow I’ve been trying the new Kosas - The Big Clean Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara recently and it looks GOOD when it’s on but zang it does NOT stay on and smudges everywhereeeee. So of course I had to go back to the Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara bc it just hits different. I have every other cloud paint so I decided to get this one in puff. I hardly ever use them...but have them anyway.....Glossi-ism..Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color If you also suffer from this condition, make sure you get a bundle for the 3 products above to at least protect your coin and not let this problem destroy you financially. Glossier. - The Makeup Set And finally for what I actually intended to buy... Glossier. - Balm Dotcom in fig. It has a tint to it that you can’t see bc I have darker lips 👄 but idgaf bc I love figs. It doesn’t smell as much like a fig as I’d like though, but there is something deep down inside me that is letting that slide bc the colors are an actual vibe and I’m here for it....Glossiorder??? If you have any other names for this Glossier induced condition that I’m sure many suffer from, feel free to leave a comment! And best of luck to you on your journey to recovery (lol, like that’s going to happen bc they launched new body hero today and I’m like......👀👀👀👀)
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?

LIQUID CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT ROUTINE✨
When my fave becomes dry or I want my makeup to last all day/night , I tend to use liquids to contour. Liquid contour makes more of a drastic difference opposed to powder contouring. My routine: Prep the face: It’s important to use moisturizers, primers etc. so the product has something to adhere to. I chose to use TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer as a primer. This product mattifies my pores so there is no chance of texture peaking through. Contour: I next go in with my contour and highlighting shades. I used an ulta contour stick to contour what I wanted to add dimension to. I used Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer to brighten areas I wanted to stand out. I blended these shades with a stopping brush than tapped in the rest to really keep the product in place. It might look a little crazy but we’re not done yet! ( I added a photo of what it looks like) Apply foundation: Next I apply foundation overtop the liquid contour and concealer. As you may notice, you do not need that much foundation because there is plenty of coverage from the previous products. I tapped on the foundation with a beauty blender. I used the JOSIE MARAN - Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid Lastly: I set everything with powder. I used the RCMA Makeup - No Color Powder I like this powder because I feel as if it brightens my skin and cause no creating. Do you prefer liquid or powder contouring? or both? And what is your skin tone type?⬇️🤍
How To Achieve The Effect Of 1=3?
RCMA Makeup - No Color Powder $10/85G This is a product that I strongly recommend everyone to use. It is a loose powder from the RCMA brand. This product is recommended by countless people, and what I want to emphasize today is different from them. What I want to recommend is how to use this bottle of loose powder as three bottles. The biggest advantage of this product is the price. A full 85g only costs ten dollars. At this price and such a large dose, you will not feel wasted no matter what you use it for. This powder is a lightweight, finely milled powder ideal for all skin tones. Its packaging is very simple, it is a transparent bottle, and the black lid on the upper side is opened with some holes for pouring out the loose powder. First of all, the main function of this product is to set makeup. The texture of the powder is very light and can easily enter the skin without any burden. You just need to use a brush to sweep a layer on your face after finishing your makeup, and your makeup will immediately become matte and not greasy. At the same time, although it is a white powder in the bottle, it does not leave behind an ashy cast or altering the color of your foundation. At present, this product is used by more people for baking, so it can be better to keep makeup all day. The second use is also very important. You can use this product to maintain your hairstyle. When your hair or bangs become oily, apply this powder to your hair gently, then massage it again, your hair will become fresh and fluffy. The third use of this product is also very magical. When we put on our makeup and go out for dinner, we would be very unhappy to find that our lipstick is left on the cup or bowl. At this time, you need this product. After applying the lipstick, put a piece of tissue on your mouth, dip the brush into the loose powder, and sweep it on the tissue. After removing the tissue, you can go out with peace of mind, because this product creates a barrier on your lipstick, and you won’t take off your makeup even after eating and drinking.
One product in two ways! Eyeshadow & Contour series
If you're like me, the eye sockets aren't obvious, especially if they're always puffy in the morning, then you really need a product that will deepen your eye socket tone! I've also tried a number of contouring products to give my eyelids a base color to reduce swelling. But or it is color is too deep, or it is tonal too yellow, do not suit to use eye ministry to give a base, did not let eyelid detumescence not only, let eye ministry look very dirty instead, be like color did not daub open same. Since I discovered KIKO - Eyeshadow High Pigment Wet And Dry Eyeshadow in the shade of No. 46, I haven't used any other contouring or eyeshadow as a base for my eyelids. This monochromatic eye shadow is a light smoky purple with shades of violet and grey. It's a cool shade in general. Its color is normal, it will not be too heavy painting will look very dirty eyelid, its powder is very fine, it is not like this price product. I usually use a large eye make-up brush and apply the color evenly from the eyelid to the bridge of the nose. I can use the same color for the eye position and deepen it a little, so that you can use only one color to complete a very layered but very simple and advanced eye makeup. The best part of this color is that it is well done, neutralize very well, suit to be eye shadow already, can do the contouring of bridge of the nose again, collect two functions to be an organic whole. And the color is also very temperamental, will not besmear on the eye, looks like the heavy feeling like smoky makeup, but is a very hazy, light cold feeling. If you are keen on this effect of eye makeup and want to reduce the swelling of the eyes, then hurry to buy this cigarette shadow, the price is also very cheap, the only disadvantage may be that it is easy to break when you take it out, because its packaging is not too strong, the powder is not firm enough, be sure to handle it gently when you go out. In addition, it is a very perfect two-in-one product, recommended!
KIKO-Eyeshadow High Pigment Wet And Dry Eyeshadow
A Contour Palette that Blows My Mind!
This is an absolutely tremendous little set. I've done some make-up in my time, but I can control it, and one of the things that has never held temptation for me is contouring. I'm old enough to have salivated over the things Kevyn Aucoin could do with contouring, but the Kardashian-inspired obsession with the stuff just wasn't my bag. Also, I'm fair. Really, really fair. Even a glance at a pot of bronzer leaves me looking like I've been in an MMA title fight. But things change, and I needed to try contouring for reasons, but there was no way I was going to spend bags and bags of cash on a contouring palette I may never use. Enter the NYX - Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Wow. Wow, wow, wow. There's a fine line between make-up that is poor quality (and barely pigmented) and high-quality make-up (with too much pigment), and this walks that line spectacularly. It's pigmented enough that you are never left frustrated by the lack of color, but not SO pigmented that you can't build the colors for better blending. There are shimmers AND mattes, which is very awesome, and while I was a little nervous about how dark the lightest dark shade would be, I find that with a moderate hand, it works just fine.I'm no professional makeup artist but after watching a ton of youtube videos I decided to buy this pallet to practice with. Let me tell you, I've used every single shade in here for various parts of my face. The powders stay on nicely and you cannot beat this price. I am completely satisfied with it.This is a great starter pallet for contouring! It is easily applied and lasts all day. The colors can be used to create a natural look or a slightly more dramatic look in mostly earth tones. The browns are varied and allow you to create a day or evening look and the white and pale pick shades really brighten your face.
NYX-Highlight & Contour Pro Palette
✨glossier Lash Slick seriously impressed me during the heat wave. Not only did it stand up to the 95+ degree Boston heat & humidity, but it stayed put through hours of pool time. ✨ My face is always lighter than my body in the summer, so I’ve been keeping the isleofparadise Self Tanning Drops on rotation. I mix 3-4 drops with my moisturizer and end up with the most perfect, bronze glow. ✨ Picked up a new bottle of ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil, which is the perfect multi-use summer oil. It’s lightweight, smells amazing and makes my summer skin glisten.

How I maintain my new pink hair?
For those of you who often bleach and dye your hair, what's the biggest problem? Is the quality of your hair getting worse and the color of your hair dying out? I am a frequent hair colorist and recently went to the barber's to have my hair bleached and dyed pink. However, it has been dyeing for two or three weeks and the color is almost out of color. Every time I lose color, It makes me wonder if I'm using the wrong dye product, or if I'm washing my hair too much and too often, which is what's causing the color to last so long. It is not actually, dye hair product again easy to use, also very difficult lasting, maintain at most one to two months, let alone pink this kind of light color, will soon fade into yellow hair state, very not good-looking, the hair looks very no vitality. PANTENE - Intense Rescue Shots Since I used this small egg hair mask of Pantene, there is no trouble that drops hair quickly again, new hair color can maintain 2 months easily. This hair mask is a single package, the package is really super cute. Products have the choice of warm colors and cold colors, I choose the cold colors. There are 8 in each box, and I usually use them once every 3-4 days, so a box can be used for about a month. Its flavour is very good smell, it is light flower fragrance, use on the hair very moist, can feel the hair absorbed a lot of nutrient, let dye hair pigment not to be taken away by redundant moisture and cleaner, can lock hair color while, repair the withered hair after dyeing hair. Kill two birds with one stone. Now my hair has been able to maintain a very smooth state every day, and dyeing hair once can keep the color of 2-3 months without losing color. If you are also like hair dye friends, recommend you try this hair mask oh, I really unlimited buyback!
PANTENE-Intense Rescue Shots
Only $12! Let contouring save your round face!
For a long time, I was upset about my round face, because the lack of natural angles around the perimeter. I always envied girls who had a lot of dimension. However, when I began to use bronzer, I understood a truth: It's not your fault that you have a round face, but if you don’t make good use of contouring, that's your fault. Now, contouring is an essential step in my makeup routine. I am interested in collecting kinds of contouring products. Recently I’m a big fan of NYX - Wonder Stick, of which, one side is for a brilliant highlight, the other is for a sleek contour. I bought the shade tittled Medium, which matches my darker skin tone. The dark-ended contour part is everything I needed. It blends so smoothly and you can even build up the color for a more drastic contour, providing a very natural look. I just love the final touch it added to my face, without staining my skin. This stick is also very handy for minimal highlights, with the highlight portion of the stick tapered at the end, you can use it to highlight cheekbones and nose with good control. It is very creamy and goes on easily without pulling delicate eye skin. By the way, good product is the base of perfect makeup, knowing techniques to contour a round face shape is also important. The goal of contouring a round face is to slim the chin, widen the cheekbones and create angles and dimension for the whole face. So we should add contour to the outer edges of your forehead, at your temples, and under your cheekbones, then around your jawline. Highlighting is also a way to create dimension and enhance features in the face with lighter colors. Apply highlighter to the center of your forehead, the center of your chin, and the bridge of your nose. These processes help draw more attention to those areas of the face. The stick really simplifies contouring and it's compact design allows for it to go anywhere easily. This surely should be in your makeup bag!
It is not only a blush, but also a bronzer
I don’t like to make up cheeks. They should either look neutral or very simple to carry yet should add some dimension to the face and warmth to the cheeks. I was eyeing a couple of MAC - MAC Powder Blushand on a visit to MAC store, the MUA tried Mocha and Melba both on either cheeks, they are very similar looking and perfect for everyday wear, but somehow I liked Melba more on me, it’s just what I was looking for everyday use. For me, it can also be used as a bronzer because the color is so amazing and natural. When i put it on my cheekbone, it makes me look like a cute and pretty girl who likes running under the sun and would be shy to speak to a stranger. MAC describes Melba as a Soft Coral Peach. Well, I have to agree with MAC on its description. It is in fact a soft coral peach blush. I feel it also a tad of pink undertones to it which makes it wearable for every girl. To me it is a dusty peach pink color which is just perfect to add a natural flush to my cheeks. On my cheeks it comes more as a peachy pink shade and it has earthy brown tones to it, so it looks different on each person depending on individual skin tone. It comes with a matte finish; the texture is very smooth and very soft to apply. There is no chalkiness or powdery feeling which we often face with matte blushes. It does look a bit intimidating in the pan because it may look like orange-ish & you may wonder whether or not, it will suit you. But trust me you have to swatch this blush to see the prettiness that it is! Texture & Pigmentation : I would call it a well pigmented blush and it is easily blendable. The matte finish I feel is the best finish in blushes and they are truly versatile. It doesn’t accentuate pores on my face which is a plus point for oily skin girls.The blush is in Powder finish but in no way chalky. The texture of the blush is smooth which is easy to apply on the cheeks. The blush blends easily as well without any patchiness or blobs of concentrated color on one part of the cheek & absolutely no color on the rest! The blush is quite pigmented & you need a very little amount of it on your brush to give you ample color to your cheeks. It adds a very subtle sun-kissed look to the cheeks & looks so natural that you are practically flaunt any makeup or 'No Makeup" makeup look & the bush is going to work! Staying Power : Like almost all MAC blushes, this blush stays on my cheeks for good 6-7 hours which is more than enough for me. It does fade a tad bit after the 7 hour wear time which makes my cheeks even more natural! :) However if you want the color to stay the same for the whole day, I suggest you carry the blush with you. Pros Of MAC Melba : * Beautiful soft earthy color which flatters every skin tone & undertone * Blends easily & is not chalky * High in pigmentation * Gorgeous all year round color * Looks Natural * Smooth texture Cons : * None I highly recommend this blush to everyone!! I absolutely love this blush & definitely will re-purchase it.
