Here’s my go-to for #WFH makeup. 💗 I don’t know about you, but at least every other day I like to wear some makeup, even if I don’t leave my house. It gives me a sense of routine. ⠀ ⠀ Plus, this one has sunscreen, as well as other anti-aging and antioxidants to help your skin at the same time. 🌟 ⠀ ⠀ What about you? Are you turning towards any Cc cream or foundation while at home?
I can’t be the only one who likes to wear a little “something something” even when I’m stuck at home all day right?! Even if it’s just covering up my blemishes, brushing up my brows and putting on a light layer of gloss, it always makes me feel better and become more productive. Here’s what I do most days: I love this high coverage concealer. I use the tiiiiniest amount just to pinpoint conceal any small scars or blemishes on my face. I don’t use this under my eyes because it’s way too heavy for that! It lasts so long on your face AND lasts you a while as a product too- I’ve been using this same tube for more than a year! (Yes, I should probably get a new one soon 🙃) I can’t stress how important brows are to your face. They add structure and frame the eyes! I don’t need much defining in my brows because I prefer a more natural look rather than super sculted- so a volumizing brow gel is perfect! This gel just beefs them up and adds a bit of color. A little gloss always makes me feel fresh and put together! This gloss isn’t sticky and gives quite a bit of color which I love. This red shade is also super flattering and extremely glossy!
I know during this time we all have to stay at home and no traveling, but I think we can also give ourselves some great makeup looks and take us back to the wonderful time we had. So today I want to share my go-to makeup that I always do when I go for a vacation. Because I hate winter and cold weathers, so I usually go to the warm places like island nations and beaches. The orange makeup will look beautiful under the sunshine and also a good choice for photoshoots. The first thing I want to mention is the foundation that I can’t live without, the All Hours Longwear Natural Matte Foundation from YSL in shade B20, $54 for 0.84oz/25ml. Even though I have dry skin, this long-wear foundation will not set in my smiling lines or pores, and it is definitely a full-coverage foundation that will cover up to 80%-90% of my pores, acne marks and dark circles. Besides, a little bit of this goes a long way, and a small pump is enough for me, so don’t waste! About the shades, I feel like this collection can be a little lighter than the other foundations of YSL, and B20 is a little bit lighter than my skin tone, so I recommend trying it in the store before purchasing. #YVES SAINT LAURENT - All Hours Longwear Natural Matte Foundation The next step is bronzer and blush, and they are both from Colourpop. I always put them in a pan so I can carry them during traveling. I use the Private Party bronzer and the So Retrograde blush. The bronzer will make my skin look warmer without being too orange or deep. And this shimmery blush is a burnt orange with gold pearl inside, so I can save the highlighter. The only thing I have to mention is that the blush is very pigment, so I only dip once and tap my brush before putting it on my face. #COLOURPOP - pressed powder blush For eye palette, I mentioned before that I always take the Whatever palette from Colourpop with me when I go for vacations, and I use the colors I marked in the picture to create a very easy but glam eye look. Finally, to match the topic, I will use a matte lipstick named Marrakesh from Mac Cosmetics, which is an orange-brown shade and has been very popular since it launched. And I feel like it will not dry my lips even it is a matte formula, which is nice because I will stay outside for a long time and don’t want to see my lips peeling. #MAC - Matte Lipstick Here are the products I use to create a quick and easy look for vacation, and I feel happy to do it again during this quarantine time, and I hope you enjoy it!
This is a very simple cheek/lip color combo I’ve been wearing lately when I want to feel cute even while stuck at home. I’m a light skinned Mexican girl and I have a sorta neutral, more yellow undertone so sometimes it’s hard to find cute pinks that look good on me but #Glossier. - Cloud Paint in puff is an exception! It’s such a pretty pink color and I’m a huge fan of the pillowy texture and how long they last. Probably my favorite Glossier makeup product. I like to pair a cute pink blush with just good ol’ clear lip gloss, I see it as such as a classic combo for me and it’s super girly. My favorite clear glosses at the moment are the #Glossier. - Lip Gloss and #KYLIE COSMETICS - High Gloss in ‘Crystal’. The Glossier gloss is really nice, applies nicely on the lips and doesn’t have added scent so it’s great of you’re sensitive to fragrance. It’s what I’m wearing on these photos 😌 The Kylie Cosmetics High Gloss is one of my favorite formulas ever, period. It’s such a nice gloss, super glossy and a lot less stickier than other glosses I’ve tried and at $16 isn’t super expensive plus it lasts a good while!
During social distancing, I’ve been trying to keep thinking positively through self care. I’ve been playing around with makeup and testing out new looks using products I already have at home. Enter: this foxy eye look which is a far cry from my usually minimalist “no makeup” makeup look. I’m pretty proud with how this turned out and it has some cool 90s vibes. Plus, it showcases some of my favorite (affordable) makeup products!
At home wellness: what does this mean to you? To me it means getting creative, unfortunately with my anxiety I had to take time off work because I work in health care were we are constantly working at it was too much for me with recent events. I think at home Wellness is being able to express myself through makeup because this makes me happy. Do you want to see more makeup looks ?

this hair repair treatment saved my split ends!
this amazing hair mask was kindly gifted by Sol De Janeiro. You know that feeling when tranquility washes over you, you hear the crunchy waves crash onto the shore, you feel that cool breeze envelope your body like a blanket, and you can almost taste the salty air? that’s how I felt using this hair mask. It felt like I was on a tropical island, sipping on pink lemonade. no joke, after washing this mask off I immediately noticed that my split ends were repaired. It was like magic. as somebody with major split ends and hair breakage, it literally felt like this mask was working voodoo on my head. i usually lose a lot of my hair, and my split ends look... well split. not with this mask. it hydrated my hair like no other, and smelled SO SO SO amazing. it even made my hair much more manageable to detangle and style. def recommend, 10/10.
NEW Sephora Best Skin Ever Review
The Sephora best skin ever foundation just dropped and I am obsessed. I was gifted this product before it dropped and I have been able to test it out a few times. First off I am very impressed with this shade range, they did a great job creating colors for all skin tones and all undertones. I am the shade 35N. There are so many great things about this foundation. First off it’s very buildable and it feels light on the skin. The product claims to be medium coverage and long wearing and I definitely agree. I’ve worn this foundation for over eight hours and it still looked great. I would describe it as a soft matte finish. I don’t apply my foundation with sponges, only brushes, but it went on nice and smooth with a dense brush. I love how this foundation is only $20, that is a great price for a quality foundation. If you are looking for a new foundation I would definitely recommend this one.
Moisturizers depending on skin type!
🚨Moisturizers depending on skin type!🚨The breakdown is pretty simple. oily skin=lightweight Dry skin=thicker/heavier consistency Combo skin=not too thick/not too thin Normal skin=preference really Personally, I feel like having both a lightweight option and a thicker option available is handy. Because there are outside factors *like temperature* that play a role in deciding. For ex: when the weather gets a bit warmer I like to use a more lightweight gel-like moisturizer even though I am super dry. All of these options are great, my newest obsession is tiger grass calming gel cream. It’s just been super soothing and smells great. My long time love is the jet lag mask. I’ve gone through way too many tubes of. But I ain’t mad about it. What’s your fav moisturizer and why? Any questions? Ask away!
Slugging made EASY!
The idea of slugging? Totally amazing. But dipping your fingers in a Vaseline jar has always freaked me out. These vaseline sticks have been gaining popularity on Tik Tok and I’m seeing them in Target for the first time EVER. However, some fellow beauty editor friends say this isn’t new and Vaseline has had these for awhile. I’ve been really into diving into the differences between “Hydration” & “Moisture” so I’m really excited to do some mini slugging sessions with this guy. It’s also perfect for any dry areas on my body. #Vaseline - All-Over Body Balm Stick[products]#[FiveStars]
Tips from a derm for exercise induced acne
With a new year comes resolutions, many involving healthier lifestyles and exercise. So why let exercise induced acne hold you back from achieving these healthier choices. Exercising can cause excessive sweating-leading to increased oils, dirt, friction, and even bacteria on your skin leading to acne. This can manifest as facial or truncal acne (think backne), often known as acne mechanica or folliculitis. Cleansing properly is incredibly important for preventing exercise induced acne. It’s important to remove all makeup prior to working out. Gently shower with lukewarm water immediately after sweating. If a shower is not available, reach for a cleansing wipe. Clean, loose-fitting moisture wicking attire is key. This helps prevent friction and additional bacteria and sweat from dirty clothing. In addition to wiping down all gym equipment, don’t forget about the stuff that hits your skin regularly such as headphones, watches, and headbands. Most importantly, don’t forget sunscreen and gentle moisturizers.
