My spring makeup looks
These are my everyday “natural” makeup look, I prefer light things on my face that just make it look more natural and beautiful and all this stuff is tested tried and true finally! It took me awhile to find the best stuff for what I wanted to look like, I will say Kosas lip balm is amazing but the cream blush and highlighter is not my favorite, then again nothing compares to glossier am I right?? They always knock it out of the park. And when I’m going for a little more noticeable makeup then I pull out my milk make up eyeshadow cream 5/5 cause that baby stays on alllllllll day long with no creasing, and yah girls got some oily eyelids too. Also their kush mascara is beautiful Just thought I would share the products I love and what I will be repurchasing when I run out, what are some of your guys favorite tried and true products? #springmakeuplooks

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?

Try this tinted moisturizer for a glow!
COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer I got this tinted moisturizer a while back at Ulta. I got it on sale for I think $9. It was so reasonably priced that I didn’t have very high expectations. I like using the bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 but it’s much more expensive. I was very surprised at how well the pretty fresh tinted moisturizer worked! I like it just as much as the bare minerals. It provides nice light to medium coverage. It doesn’t have the spf like the bare minerals but I use a separate spf either way so I don’t mind! I definitely think the COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer is worth a try, especially at such a great price point! Also if anyone is wondering I’m also wearing Kosas - Weightless Lip Color in Undone and Kosas - Color & Light: Pressed Powder Blush & Highlighter Duo in Contrachroma.

Cream vs. powder eyeshadow
Eyeshadow can be such a fun part of a makeup routine. Whether it is cream or powder, eyeshadow can enhance the eyes in a simple way. Let’s delve into two formulas I have in my collections: Personally, I love the versatility of cream eyeshadows. Will it be an eyeshadow, eyeshadow primer, base, eyeliner, etc.c today? Who knows? The Milk MAKEUP - Eye Pigment in Silent Disco is relatively beginner friendly. What it does?: On Milk’s website, the eye pigments come in 8 different colors available for purchase. (Only 5 are on Sephora.com.) The pigments are meant to be long-wearing, crease-free, oil-free, cruelty-free and a whole lot of other things free. Use with an angled brush for a colorful winged eyeliner look. There I was digging through the beauty section of one of my local T.J. Maxx and I saw the Milk MAKEUP - Eye Pigment in Silent Disco. Described as a deep brown base with copper and gold shimmers, it is actually more unique than it sounds. To me, the base almost looks black which is why I compared it to the black in the REVOLUTION - Soph x Ultra 24 Eyeshadow Palette palette with both COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow used on top of that to create a similar look. MY EXPERIENCE: This pigment is so pretty and acts as a great all-over lid shade of you are having a lazy makeup day. The $5.99 price tag (0.34 fl. oz./10 mL) makes me love it more. (It is originally $24.) My eyelids are slightly darker and oily, but this covers the discoloration and shows true to color. The oils from my eyelids don’t break this pigment down easily. ••• If you ever want to dupe another shadow, then COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow and REVOLUTION - Soph x Ultra 24 Eyeshadow Palette are the way to go. Like I said the Milk pigment was such a unique color that CP just didn’t have. (Or at the very least, wasn’t in my collection.) I do think the this combo gets pretty close. Recommend? I recommend both. Milk for the product, but not the $24 price tag and CP/MR for the price tag, but not for the specific color.
Milk Makeup Eye pigment
Milk MAKEUP - Eye Pigment The Milk Makeup Eye Pigments were my first introduction into eyeshadows in a form other than powder. There’s a lot of color options available, but the ones I have (in order of top to bottom) are Gig, Rager, Hotel Lobby, All Nighter, After Party, and Rave. Sadly, Gig and Rager are no longer being sold, which is a shame because Gig is my favorite shade. These bad boys do not budge when you put them on the eye. I don’t need a primer or anything, but actually have to work super quick to blend before the shadow sets. I work one eye at a time in order to make sure they’re properly blended, and I apply with my fingers rather than brushes. I use these on their own without layering over powder or other eyeshadows. Love them.Milk MAKEUP - Eye Pigment

Mini Mascara Reviews!
Mascara mini reviews! I love a good fluffy, natural bristled wand that gives good volume. The Nars Climax Mascara and Milk Kush mascara definitely both aim for that. So I thought I would compare these mini’s with mini reviews. The NARS - Climax Mascara definitely dries out quick. I haven’t used it all that much and it’s already almost gone. It gives decent volume but I wish it gave a little more length and could build a little more. It also flakes a too much for my liking. Decent but I definitely wouldn’t pay the full price. The Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara is definitely my preferred of the two. It’s super volumizing but is also buildable for length. It lasts throughout the day but does have some mild flaking. Less than the Nars. I already bought a full size of the waterproof version at @tjmaxx and I’m excited to try that!

RARE BEAUTY FOUNDATION REVIEW!!
Hey guys! I recently bought theRare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Here's why: ￼I picked the right shade which is 140C!! I had to play around with the shade finder on Sephora and took a tally to see which shade made sense, plus I picked one that matches my cool undertone. Super important to know your undertone! ￼It's like BUTTER! 🤩💕 So smooth & easy to blend out ￼It has a doe foot applicator instead of a pour and I like that because you can't spill it, plus this foundation goes a long way & the applicator holds so much foundation it's unbelieveable. ￼The doe foot is really well designed and it's really flat, soft, and smooth and I don't have to dip it in the bottle that often to get more foundation which I'm surprised about. ￼When you apply powder, it doesn't cake! It just becomes slightly drier and is smoothed out more. This foundation sets really nicely and when I wore my mask today not much came off and I was super happy about that. Also, I've tried foundations that got cakey before and this one does do a little bit to large pores, but it does depend on the powder you use - I've tried it with 3 and results were different. 🤷🏼♀️ But anyway this is a smooth foundation that gets better and is there to stay after you put it on. (it sets well with the URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Duo ) ￼I have large pores and this product didn't make them seem bigger, it smoothed them out! So crazy to me and this foundation is worth it!! Things to consider: ￼It reminds me of the Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tintbecause of the formula and Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation is thicker so don't worry about not getting enough coverage 😂 ￼I think it would be best on any skin type honestly, and I have oily skin and it didn't affect me throughout the day - 12 hr wear, so I think you should consider your skin type and what you use to set. ￼The best tool to use is a sponge, since it's very liquidy and lightweight, so a brush would just soak it all up and wouldn't give as smooth of a finish. Stay healthy folks!! 💁🏼♀️🥰

Winged cbd is my all time fav. They can’t go wrong with anything. This youth serum is so gentle for your skin. My skin feels and looks delicious.

Luxury ✨ must haves in my purse!
laura mercier - Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF30 I’m on week two using this product and I love how easy it blends in without being watery. It is sweat proof and lasts through your your day. I can apply blush and concealer over or wear it by itself and feel medium coverage ARMANI beauty - Sì Passione Eau de Parfum I have the pink bottle of Si in a larger size and loved it so much I got a mini for my purse and the office, this smell is sweet but very classy Kosas - Port LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm no other chapstick can hold a candle to my kosas ,this has been a true gem to me and I feel instant moisture as well as long lasting moisture through the day. If you are looking for a new lippy I also have the Pulse shade which can be dressed up or neutral
Sunscreen AND eyeshadow?!
The shimmershade from supergoop is something I wear almost every time I do my makeup, especially in the summer. I always thought I was the only person that would get sunburnt on their eyelids, but I guess not! Application: extremely easy - I apply with my ring or middle finger Finish: cream that “dries” down and stays in place Wear time: 8-10 hours
Brand Spotlight: Supergoop!
I discovered Supergoop through the “skinstagram” community (does using this term make me a boomer?) and loved their mission and that they’re a brand dedicated to SPF—that immediately increased my trust in them. However be careful what you wish for... Products I’ll be reviewing: Shimmershade SPF 30 Glow Stick SPF 50 Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 MY FAVES: Supergoop! - Shimmershade Eyeshadow Shimmershade SPF 30 Eyeshadow: this is just an incredible daily cream eyeshadow formula. I hate the heavy feeling of facial SPF on my eyelids and this came in CLUTCH. It feels just like a lightweight cream eyeshadow and looks amazing. I have the shade “” and it looks incredibly seamless when blended in with my fingers for that “next level” eye look. The pot has a ton of product in it for the price point ($24) and I highly recommend you try it at least once. Get a sample from Sephora! Supergoop! - Glow Stick SPF 50 Glow Stick SPF 50: I was really hesitant about this one—I purchased it as a chemical SPF option that wouldn’t pill under makeup. Surprisingly, I love this formula. It doesn’t sit on top of your skin and feels super lightweight. It’s also really easy to reapply during the day! I like that it’s a solid stick formula so it won’t leak or spill in your bag. My only real complaint is the packaging. You push the product up from the bottom and it’s just kind of hard to control at time how much you push up. Like a push pop without being able to push it back down. It also lasts FOREVER so $25 doesn’t seem unreasonable to me. NOT SO MUCH - LEAST FAVE: Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40: this is a translucent blurring SPF formula. The texture is SO silky. I loved how it applied to my skin...but any time I use this, my skin immediately breaks out in a rash. I’m not sure why this happens. I’ve heard so many great things about this product but my experiences haven’t been great, and at $34, I can’t justify the price at all, leaving it in the bottom tier of this brand Spotlight. What are your favorites from Supergoop?

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......👀👀👀👀)
(THE BEST) NO MAKEUP, MAKEUP
My favorite Natural Makeup! My love of glossier started a few years back, while my love of skincare and natural looks and products has been infinite! Here are my top products for my quick "no makeup, makeup!" I have (very) oily skin so I have never been a fan of foundations/concealers, even with powders! I very much dislike powders! So my solution to that was to not wear makeup, until..... Glossier. - Boy Brow Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color WHY I LOVE- The glossier boy brow (clear, I have very thick, (shaped), dark brows) was my first love. Along with making my first glossier purchase I grabbed the boy brow and boy! (No pun intended). This product keeps my brows in shape all day! It leaves a very fluffy, feathery look! If you are looking for a more " filled in look" this product is great for this to, and recommend it to all my friends! This is my to go to makeup products! The applicator is so convenient! It feels like a cloud on my brows! It’s a perfect size to stick in your pocket or wallet for a quick touch up! Having dark, shaped brows is really a staple on my face it helps capture how people look at me! Keeping them groomed is the one of my only insecurities! Glossier cloud paint! I have a warm undertone (olive, medium skin)! So my favorite colors are dusk and beam! I first tried these products as a "sample" in one of my glossier shipments! I love the consistency of the cloud paint! It’s very buildable and will only give you as much tint as you choose to apply! It’s like a inflated, creamy moisturizer! It sets into the skin perfectly (without powder)! The color is exactly as demonstrated on the packaging! This is one thing I love about glossier! There marketing is amazing! They don’t miss a spot, especially with this product! These products parried together create the perfect look! It’s important to remember that you are beautiful! With and without makeup! DEALS- Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo You save $8! Buy buying two (you choose) cloud paints! Glossier. - The Makeup Set You save $12! This includes one cloud paint (you choose), the boy brow (you choose) and the lash slick! This mascara is amazing it leaves a very light feathery, your eyelashes but better look! It’s lengthening and makes a really natural long dark look! (I have tried this product, but don’t use it on the daily, for I have very, very long eyelashes, so i usually do a light curl and spolie them out!)
Glossier. - Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter The BEST highlighter! I did not know I would love this product so much, but I do and I’m so glad I convinced myself to purchase it. I got the colour quartz which the Glossier website calls a “universally flattering, pearlescent highlight” and I really believe this would look great on any skin tone (I’m fair right now; I’ll tan up more during the summer). This highlighter lasts ALL day! I haven’t noticed any irritation on my skin either. I’ll reach for this more so when I put on the Ordinary serum foundation (super lightweight and amazing by the way) as opposed to days where I’m only popping only concealer. Love love love this.
Glossier.-Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter
I was completly unimpressed by the glossier Haloscope highlighter at first. I found if I applied it straight onto my face it would rub my foundation off. 😱 Applying it with a beauty sponge didn't work for me either. It wasn't until i used my luxiebeauty 680 Pro Precision brush that I FELL IN LOVE with the glow it gives my skin. It gives the best dewy glow that makes your skin look so healthy! I'll be using it everyday until the end of time.
Glossier.-Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter
I love this highlighter. The middle has a moisturizing product in it that’s clear and leaves a beautiful glow. The outside ring is a beautiful shimmer that’s not too much. It’s extremely blended-able and buildable. I truly love this product. Glossier. - Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter
Glossier.-Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter
On cloud 9 with some of my @glossier favs ☁️
⠀ ✨ cloud paints: these have been a favorite/must have of mine since the day I purchased them. They give me the prettiest flushed cheeks look and I am obsessed with them. My all time favorite shade is beam! ⠀ ✨ balm dotcom: I didn’t really understand on a lip balm until I had these in my hands. My lips stay so hydrated and smooth the second I apply this balm. Coconut is my summer favorite at the moment but I do have 3 others that are loved just as much. ⠀ ✨ lash slick: this mascara is no joke! If you’ve watched my get ready with me you know I absolutely love this mascara for daily use. It lengthens my lashes and makes them look like I’m about to fly away like a butterfly which I am all about!
Excited about NY, going to prep my skin up tonight 🥰, not 100% sure what mask I will use. So I have had glossier for a couple of weeks now, so have had a good play with the products. First off the packaging is spot on! My opinions on the products. 🔸Cloud paint: Really like these! Really pigmented and apply really well and last a while, even on my slightly oily summer face. The one I have been reaching for is “dusk” which is a brownish nude, and is so perfect for everyday. I apply with my fingers then buff out with an eco tools stripping brush. 🔸Balm Dotcom: These are pretty good and I like them but I wouldn’t say they are must have, I have a variety of balms that work just as well. 🔸Boybrow: love this! I have been growing my brows out and using a brow serum to help with the growth as I over plucked in my 20s and also lost some hair when I was pregnant. This brow gel gives my brows volume and gives me actual boy brows, I could be competing with my husband right now! 🔸Lashslick: Nice mascara for everyday natural look. 🔸Haloscope: In colour quartz. Very Dewy highlighter. I like it but have to be careful when I use it, it can “move” my foundation if I am not careful and if my face is oily it can make it look oilier. So quite like the products, and for the price point they are good! They are perfect for a natural look, and that is their selling point. My favourite is the cloud paints, very pigmented and easy to blend and don’t settle into pores.
