Play with colours and glitters during quarantine time. Slay at home, have fun, and feel glam! I used the @pixibeauty Glitter-Y Eye Quad in this look; didn't put anything underneath which I think will make difference. 🤩 I also use the Liplift Max on my lips and let me tell you its a new fave! 👄
I am someone who lovesssss a good highlighter that’s glittery and intense. However, on most days when I don’t wanna wear a lot of makeup or I just want a subtle glow, I choose these three highlighters to give me a natural glow. ✨ #e.l.f - Workout Ready Lip & Cheek Palette[products]#[FiveStars] This palette is meant to be use on the go for a minimal makeup look or for touch-ups. It comes with four shades, the white shade is a highlight and the rest are meant for the lips and cheeks. I love the entire palette, but my absolute favorite is the highlight because it gives you the most beaming highlight while stil looking natural! It looks very white in the pan but on the skin it looks flawless and you can’t see any whiteness only shine, so I recommend this for all skin tones! #COLOURPOP - Pressed powder highlighter[products]#[FiveStars] (Shade: Here Kitty Kitty) There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love this highlight, I use it so much. This shade specifically gives you a beautiful glowy look that isn’t chunky or too glittery. I love wearing this when I want to wear a full face of makeup, but I want to keep it simple. Here Kitty Kitty and this formula gives you a sheen type of finish that is still very luminous and will look amazing when you take selfies in the sun. It’s hands down one of my favorite powder highlighters. #the Balm cosmetics - Mary-Dew Manizer [products]#[FiveStars] I got this in a ipsy bag and I’ve been obsessed with it since, I’m going to need to purchase the regular size soon! This is a liquid highlighter that will give you a seamless glow but can still blind people when they see you. It literally makes your cheek look wet but in a beautiful way. It’s also such a pretty color. I like to apply this with my fingers for a more minimal look or I use a sponge when I really want people to see the glow. ✨ I feel like it’s difficult to find a highlighter that looks ‘natural’ because it is shimmery/glittery. However, these three highlighters, I’m so glad I found them because I’m someone who loves a no makeup-makeup look!
Elf eyeshadows have always been hit or miss for me, but I’ve struck gold with the #e.l.f. - Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette Hot Jalapeño[products]#[FourStars] . I’m actually super impressed with how these shadows performed. Blendable, pigmented and the shimmers are actually impactful. I’ll definitely be picking up more, especially at the price point of $3.🔥🔥🔥 And yes, I did a full face of makeup to just lounge around the house.
I use this palette in almost every single makeup look I do. Its perfect for crazy color looks because of how pigmented thecolors are, but it's also perfect for natural looks because of the wide selection of brown/orange shades. I will always recommend this palette to everyone because it truly has everything you need. The price is so so worth it. #MORPHE - The James Charles Palette[
Oh HEY my to go look takes me about 6 minutes and as you can tell, I am very proud #DERMABLEND - Flawless Creator Multi-Use Liquid Foundation Drops This wouldn’t be my post if I didn’t mention this product ( HOLY GRAIL) #DERMABLEND - Illuminating Banana Powder Amazing at letting my makeup sit, wouldn’t recommend for my oily friends though! #ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Brow Pomade I know this product has been retired by the makeup community however after using this product for 4+ years, I consider myself a master now. I love that a little goes a long way (I’m only on pomade #2) #Vasanti - Bloom blush This was a random purchase I made last year yet I absolutely love to use this daily. I only put enough for me to see 😂 #NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream I’ve purchased over 20 of these in the last 3 years because 1. I’m always losing them, 2. It’s the perfect shade for me 🥺
love when a makeup looks beautiful on the first try.🍃 I was scared to try a blue green as I thought it would not look good on me but I was surprised, I loved how the eye looks beautiful with these colors.🍃

this isn't a lipstick 👀💋
I did a little video with some of my favorite reds a little while ago, but I feel like NYX - Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp deserves its own post! It's glossy, pigmented, AND affordable... we love to see it! 🙌🏾
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
