Hi all you lovely ladies! ❀ Today i will be showing you all what can be done in 5-10 minutes depending on how comfortable you are with makeup, but it really shouldn’t take much longer than that. We all have those days where we have to get up and get ready for work quickly but you would like to make yourself presentable at least. So that’s what were targeting. If you can master this routine you’ll always have a good face to put forward in ANY hectic situation. πŸ™‚ ❀

Here is what my 5 minute face looks like:

image

Pretty simple! This look is simplyΒ created with a quick touch up under the eyes & over blemishes with concealer & beauty blender, a quick & light dusting of bronzer for some warmth, a little bit of foundation powder brushed on, an illuminator chubby on the cheekbone for a beautiful glow, mascara of any kind, and a nice shimmer beneath the brow bone to waken & open the eyes a bit. No lip color has been applied here yet, but i will show you how to make this even more presentable with two more simple & fast steps!

image

Add a tiny flick of black liner, a couple dabs of a creamy cheek lip and cheek chubby on both your cheeks & lips, and ta-daaa! πŸ˜‰ You can amp it up even more with steps that will take you only a minute to do! Now you’re ready for the day with a fresh face. πŸ˜€

Here are the affordable products i used today:

image

Let’s start with these:

  • FLOWER beauty double sided mascara/eyeliner duo pen
  • FLOWER beauty highlighter/bronzer chubby “Honey-bronze”
  • FLOWER beauty lip & cheek chubby in “Can’t Re-Fuschia”
  • Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Β in Light

My wonderful man is taking me to 4 star GORGEOUS resort & casino for my birthday and i am more than excited.

FLOWER Beauty Lip & Cheek Chubbys!

Hi ladies! ❀ Just wanted to do a quick review on a few of these gorgeous Lip & Cheek Chubbys by FLOWER beauty. I have three colors here today to show you, i own a few more and they are all very pretty & wearable and oh-so-creamy! Keep reading if you’re interested πŸ™‚

image

image

KM1- Leaves a beautiful healthy peachy/apricot glow on your face. This on is is very natural looking and applies nicely on your cheeks. Gorgeous lip color too.

HL3- This one is a honey bronze highlighter chubby, this is a gorgeous honey colored shimmery shade that looks stunning as a bronzer for me.

KM3- This one is a VIBRANT hot pink color, i like to use this on my lips most of the times but i could see this as a beautiful cheek color for warmer skin tones if dabbed on lightly.

Here are some swatches.. (i applied more than necessary for your cheeks to really show texture and color more clearly)

image

They really behave like a smooth cream blush. Which is also a great texture for the lips, i feel like they’re moisturizing too. These are just swatches, there will be NO chunky spots once the color is all blended out onto your cheeks it leaves such a beautiful, even, glowing color.Β 

Here are some more beautiful colors by FLOWER:

This deep berry plum color is PERFECT for Autumn! I am in love with this shade.

image

This one is gorgeous too, it’s a beautiful dusty rose color this would be amazing on the cheeks!

❀

These are a definite must have/try if you have not already! You will be pleased πŸ™‚ I love these guys, they are small but fat, but can be tossed in your purse or even a small clutch. Voila! Lips and cheeks are covered for the night. IN LOVE πŸ˜‰


Thanks for reading beautiful girls! Leave comments & thoughts for me ❀ I love hearing from you all!

Take Your SKINCARE SERIOUSLY!!!

Hi beautiful girls! Here to share with you all a wonderful age fighting product review this time! πŸ˜€ It is:Β Serious Skincare A Defiance Vitamin A Retinol Pads! (60 ct.)

These guys are absolutely magical and DO what they say that they’re supposed to do. Unlike many many many other skin care products out on the market today. Luckily, there’s always gonna be a gem mixed into the gravel of lies that companies in the Skin Care industry want us to believe, but more importantly BUY. These retinol pads are that shining gem.

image

These Vitamin A Infused, pre-soaked facial pads can be used day or night, or both! I use one on my face when i wake up after i use face wash, and one pad before bed after i cleanse my face also. These leave my skin feeling great and looking refreshed and healthy, like my skin just drank up all the nutrients. They also have a very faint scent, similar to a standard face wash. I don’t mind it at all it honestly just smells fresh & clean πŸ™‚ I also have very sensitive skin and have had NO issues with using these. The ingredients seem very clean and don’t cause any problems, no sticky/oily residue left over once fully dry. The pads are large enough to treat your entire face & neck with just one! These are great and who wouldn’t want important key vitamins infused DIRECTLY into your skin??

image

image

image

So let’s discuss what these are going to achieve in the long run for our skin:

  • Gently turns over dead skin cells that dull your overall appearance.
  • Helps reveal fresh, glowing and healthy skin underneath.
  • Regular daily use will keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful.

Sounds like that all would take a lot of work to achieve right? WRONG, with just the swipe of a pad across your face and neck area twice a day, this product will keep you feeling young and chase away dead cells from your beautiful skin!

How does retinol benefit skin?

It generally act’s as a skin hypnotist, it attaches to any and all skin cells and convinces them to behave as younger, healthier cells. It also serves as an antioxidant, which can prevent free radicals and increase collagen production. It also will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, strengthen aging skin, clear up skin & unclog pores.

❀

Serious Skincare is a highly recognized and a very “good at what they do” brand. This product alone has so much positive hype & reviews that i absolutely had to give a go myself! πŸ™‚ Oh boy, and i’m sure glad i did! I have been using for a few weeks now and i have noticed a beautiful, natural, glowing result. I am all about tending to my skin’s every whim now, so i don’t have to worry so much about it later down the line, haha! But if you’re on the opposite end and need help with aging skin NOW, this will definitelyΒ benefit you too. Goes for about $40.00 USD for one 60 ct. jar. Buy one HERE!

Liven Up Your Makeup Area! Simple Ways To Beautify Your Space!

I really do like a simplistic/modern when it comes to house decor, but i feel like i can’t help but want to personalize my vanity/makeup area when i see all of these other gorgeous spaces online posted by girls everywhere. I’ll be talking about a few simple ways breathe air into your space if you feel it’s lacking personality.

image

  • First and foremost, if you have TONS of makeup like myself, you are going to need a place for storing it all. Luckily i have many drawers and cupboards that are barely enough space for all my makeup. Those cupboards are full of organizational baskets and plastic organizers that you can buy online or from places like target or Walmart. They also have plastic stacked bins that slide in & out that will serve as maximum makeup storage & organization if you do not have drawers and cupboards vacant.
  • Now the seat, get yourself a nice comfy chair that you love. I love the look of these weaved grass type chairs and i love the height of this ones back piece! It’s like a throne. I keep a little matching pillow on it for back support/comfort. πŸ™‚
  • Match your accessories; whether it be color, pattern or both! It’s just a fact of life that a space pulled together with matching beautiful towels, rugs and candles etc, makes us humans happy and it’s obv. more appealing to the eye. ❀ Go to Walmart or target or even the dollar store sometimes, they have tons of bathroom sets for great prices!

image

  • Lighting is SO important guys! If you are doing your makeup in a dark area you are not going to achieve the results you want. Natural lighting is clearly the best option but if you have a designated makeup spot with no windows, you should probably invest in some nice vanity lights! Talk about brightening up your space. πŸ˜‰ I took a picture of two bulbs but there’s at least 10 of these guys running across the top of my mirror. These are big bulbs that produce lots of light and makes it super easy to do my makeup with better detail.

image

  • Get yourself a nice sleek mirror for close up occasions, those moments where you’re gonna need a closer look at what you are doing. Keep it clean and on your vanity table for a nice touch. ❀
  • Put out your favorite perfumes, not just because you’ll be using them often, but they always look very elegant & classy sitting on a vanity table.
  • Clear a spot to keep some commonly used items, whether it’s nail polish, lipsticks, or foundation. Just keep it neatly placed in an acrylic organizer for easy access! πŸ™‚

image

image

  • Add some plant life; get a bundle of flowers and put them in a nice vase or get a bamboo plant like me! πŸ™‚ This really adds a nice lively touch to the space.
  • Get a few accessories/nik-nacs that you love and if you have room, place them somewhere on your vanity table/area! I have a few small things shown above.
  • If you have any wall space incorporated into your makeup area, USE IT! Nothing personalizes a space better than your most favorite works of art, paintings, drawings, posters etc. Or in my case, i painted something personally for it. Since i barely had any wall space for this, i wanted to paint something special for the area that had to do with cosmetics & beauty and what i love. ❀

image

It’s important to surround yourself with beauty in more ways than just physical. This is a pretty space, and i love doing my makeup here but more importantly it the fact that wanting to keep this area so beautiful and nice, keeps me organized and very clean with it. That helps me mentally more than anything, because i really can’t tolerate clutter at this point in my life. So, not only does brightening up/organizing your makeup area right now make you happy, but it will help you strive to keep it that way and keep you happy. ❀

Thanks for reading! Leave comments & thoughts for me, hope you all had a great weekend! Ready for work? πŸ™‚ I’m adding lot’s of goodies into my Halloween Giveaway keep checking for it! ❀
