My Everyday Makeup Look!
My everyday makeup look usually takes me about 20 minutes (eeek!!! I know!!) but hey I have fun! I use a mix of high end and drugstore. Sometimes I wear foundation, but with my oily skin, I find it easier to just wear a concealer and let the rest of my skin breathe. BECCA - First Light Priming Filter my first step, to give my face a luminous glow URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder sets my face and keeps me matte for a few hours, but still allows my primer to “glow through” BECCA - BECCA Luminous Blush in camellia - a girl can never have too much blush #Kokie - Soft glow highlighter[products]#[ThreeStars] in Rosy - doesn’t pick up too well on the brush, but I like it because it doesn’t emphasize my texture URBAN DECAY - De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray can’t stand the smell and really doesn’t control oil that long - glad I only bought the trial size. benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel looove this for my sparse brows Kokie - Essential Eyeshadow Palettes in Pure Magic some of the mattes are patchy but that’s ok it’s a good palette otherwise HANK & HENRY - Slick WithIt Liquid Eye Liner this actually stays on my oily eyelids essence - Lash Princess Volume Mascara absolutely adore this mascara!! So all this is in my routine. I think. lol I may have left something out I use so much!! Anyways it’s always a point with me to have fun using makeup. The minute I’m not having fun is the minute I’ll quit.
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?
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

Lash Slick Dupe Review
I will admit that I immediately fell in love with the effortless application of Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara and its amazing "my lashes but better" look. However, I have one major issue with this beautiful mascara.... it constantly flakes throughout the day. This is a huge let down considering it is on the pricier side. so instead of shedding some tears over my let down, I decided to put a supposed dupe to the test. The wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara costs significantly less and overall gives the EXACT same look as Lash Slick and the wand applicator looks pretty much identical. Better yet, I have no flaking! The only difference I can tell is the actual formula itself. I personally like the feel and application of Lash Slick better than the Mega Length Mascara. It glides on easier and feels smoother. But, I dislike flaking and that is a hard pass for me. The winner in my book is Mega Length!
I have to admit I have been in love with the asthetics of Glossier for a couple years now but the price point always made me hesitant. This year I FINALLY decided to take advantage of their Cyber Sale. Overall, I wasn't left disappointed! Glossier definitely has the "no makeup makeup" concept down and I was super impressed with how well some of the products helped me achieve this look. Glossier. - Boy Brow This is for sure a new staple in my makeup bag! The formula is light and performs beautifully to give your brows a natural shape. I previously used the e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel as a dupe recommendation and I personally don't think it's a comparable dupe at all. While the results are similar, Boy Brow is more waxy and moveable, while Wow Brow leaves my eyebrows crunchy and weighted down. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick I really wanted to love this lipstick. I adore the concept and it genuinely gives a blotted lipstick look. I love the color (I purchased like) because it gives me a "my lips but better" color. However, I can't get over the waxy plastic smell they claim to be lychee rose. It lingers on my lips and it's a no for me because of the fragrance. Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder This really is WOWder! It's light as it claims, eliminates some dewy shine from your face, and works wonders to even skin tone and blurr large pores. It's a new favorite in my makeup collection and has replaced light foundation when I want a simple no makeup look. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Hands down the best lipbalm I have ever used, no question about it! I purchased the original and mint, which I use several times a day now. I plan on purchasing more in the near future so they can live all over my house and in my purse forever and ever. Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I was nervous about this product based on the reviews I read. It really does give a healthy glow to the skin that looks like it comes from within. I use it as a natural looking highlighter too. But it doesn't completely dry down, thus one star removed. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer This isn't a medium or full coverage concealer, but in my opinion it still performs beautifully. After applying it under my eyes I noticed the area looked brighter and I looked more awake. It doesn't cover redness but it does even skin tone some and looks like my skin, but better. I don't have any creasing either after wearing it all day. Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara I love everything about this mascara EXCEPT it sometimes flakes. It really gives my lashes a natural look and again, "my lashes but better." I am on the hunt for a dupe that doesn't flake. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color These are everything they are hyped up to be and more! I purchased Beam and Dusk. Both look beautiful, are highly pigmented, and give my cheeks a healthy natural glow.

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 - 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 - 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.
