Short Spring Makeup Tutorial & Maybelline Product Review! πŸ’›πŸ’πŸ’›

Hi Babes! I’m back today with some spring-spiration! πŸ’•πŸŒ·πŸ’• I haven’t done a makeup tutorial for a while and I thought, what a better way to come back with a great makeup look but for the new spring season! 😁 Let’s get right into shall we???

So I was sitting here thinking of colors I associated with spring, first and almost instantly “pastel” came to mind. But I continued to simmer on the idea and I just wasn’t satisfied with pastels right now, I wanted something bolder. Something that could be worn out to a nice dinner date and you look fabulously spring-y but also suave and sexy. Then, I began thinking neutral with a POP of spring color! 😁 So I ultimately decided on a chocolate brown cut crease look, with a vibrant turquoise winged liner to go with it. Please continue reading if you’d like to see what products I used and pictures of my the look I created! πŸ’–

  
Here are the products I used to create this look!

  
  
  
*Benefit “Big Beautiful Eyes” Eye Contour Palette (Dark brown shadow)

*Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “Ibiza.” (Used as eyeliner)

*Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

*Maybelline Master Contour Kit

*Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in “Rose Gold.”

*Milani “Bahama Beige” Lip Stick

*FLOWER Beauty About Face Liquid Foundation

*Salon Perfect Half-Falsies (Not in photo) 

*OFRA Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (Not in photo)

*MAC Mineralize Concealer (Not in photo) 

*L’Oreal Infallible 16 HR Pro Matte Powder Foundation (Not in photo)

   
Now I just wanted to quickly review the Maybelline products for you! 

 
 

Maybelline The Master Contour Kit
: When I first saw this in my local Walmart I was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn’t so much like the highlight or contour shades. The contour was much too light for my olive complexion, and the highlight was so-so. I have much better quality highlighters by MAC, Pixi and Wet n’ Wild. The one thing I really loved about this palette, was the blush! It is such a beautiful, healthy/natural glow type pink. Like you just got done working out or something, so pretty 😍 I recommend this for the blush. But the contour and highlight might work better for you if you are very fair skinned. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: This stuff is black gold! πŸ’– I have been in search of an affordable mascara that separates and lifts my lashes towards the sky 🌞 This one does just that. Maybelline is funny, they come out with TONS of different mascaras. We’re always seeing new commercials with supermodel’s with the best looking lashes, and I’ll go out and try all of these mascaras & I’ll hardly like any of them. But finally, one has lived up to it’s claims! πŸ’œ Highly recommend! No need for expensive mascaras when this one exists 😁

Anyways, Thanks so much for reading babes! Please leave your comments and thoughts for me ❀️ xoxo

How I paint my blank full coverage fake nails! πŸ’…πŸΌ

Hey ladies! 😘❀️ I’m back again with a quick tutorial for you girls on how I usually paint my blank fake nails. Like these:


I for one am no good at painting my fingernails. I will make a mess lol 😞 I’m usually never satisfied with how it turns out either, and I tend to mess up my mani every single time by touching them to something, as if I were cursed. πŸ˜‚But now i’ve solved my messy, frustrating situations by painting them off my hand, let me show you what I mean! Some of you may have already figured this out, but I thought it’d make for a nice post. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Starting off, I filed each nail into a nice point because they didn’t come very sharp at all. This is the time consuming part, but it’s worth it to make nice, sharp talons.

Secondly, I prepped my nails. Filed them down and lightly filed the surfaces of my nails to give the fake ones something to hold onto better.

Next, I started assembling my helpful q-tip tool for holding the nails while I apply the nail polish!



Pretty simple right? Just roll a little short peice of tape, stick it to the q-tip, and then press the nail onto it. Then all you have to do is paint them! Like so:


Here is a close up picture of how sharp I filed these ones compared to how they came… That white nail below the pink is an original, pretty round right?


Now that you have your nails painted flawlessly, you’re probably going to want to use a pair of tweezers to pull off the little pieces of tape after removing the q-tips. Then simply glue them to your nails and enjoy! A picture perfect, inexpensive manicure. That box of 500 fake nails cost me only $10.00 USD on amazon.com and I already owned everything else πŸ‘πŸ»


What do you think? Leave me your thoughts and comments babes ❀️ Keep tuned for some new awesome brands i’ll be sharing with you! Have a beautiful night.

Ipsy Glam Bag Review 2016! πŸ’–

Hi dolls! I missed you! I haven’t talked to you sweeties in a while. I am so sorry I have neglected my blogging, just started a second job and i’m working 40 + hours a week now and I just haven’t had time to come on here and type my fingers off.. πŸ˜₯ I truly apologize girls, and I am going to seriously get back onto my precious beauty blog and bring you guys more stuff to read and tutorials to try, new brandsΒ to fall in love with, all of that great beautiful stuff! πŸ‘„ I really hope you all understand and will keep looking into my blog every once and while to check for new posts! Today, I recieved my Ipsy Feb 2016 glambag. So it was a perfect way to motivate me to sit my butt down and blog.

Let’s get started!


The first two items I want to review with you beauties is the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil & a gorgeous naked cosmetics mica loose pigment shadow in “Sierra Nevada” that I recieved.



The mineral eyeshadow from naked cosmetics has a beautiful shimmer and velvety feel to it. It is super easy to apply and shows up nice and pigmented on the first swipe. It is full of beautiful sparkels & shine that do not show up truly in the picture above.. But this is a very dreamy, earth tone, light catching mocha brown shade. I am in love. Perfect for everyday glam. πŸ’•


As for the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil, this is pretty much a product based soley for dry skin. I have really healthy normal skin that is dewy- just mildly moist but not dry whatsoever, so unfortunately I can’t use this nice product. I can tell by the crazy slick & typical oily consistency that it wont sit well with my skin, so I am not even gonna risk it. Other women who have dry skin in need of some moisture; this product claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, increase moisture in 4 weeks, and creates an ideal canvas for applying makeup as well. So this just might work perfectly for you! 😁

Next up, I was sent a mini Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in the shade “Pink Sequin,” and a pink Luxie flat definer shadow brush.


The gloss:Β 

  • Β Smells cheap
  • Tastes strange
  • Gritty texture

Other than these unwanted traits, it’s a gorgeous pretty light pink champagne color. It’s a shame I wont be using it becuase of it’s noticable cheap quality and scent.

The brush:

  • Gorgeous pink handle
  • Very precise flat tip
  • No loose hairs at all

This seems to be a really great quality brush, always love recieving new ones to play with! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’• Thanks Ipsy!


The last product I was sent is this Perfectly Posh- Best Face Forever Pepermint, Grapefruit and Aloe Vera Exfoliating Face Mask. This mask seriously smells minty and incredibly refreshing, it has large exfoliating sugar grains that definitely gets the job done when it comes to shaving off all those lame dead skin cells revealing new, soft and vibrantly healthy appearing skin. I like the combonation of the pepermint and aloe vera, it makes for a very soothing combination and spa-like experience! πŸ’†πŸ» I am giving this face wash product a chance, even though these normally turn me off.

Thanks for reading babes, missed you all so much! 😘 Leave me some comments and thoughts. I really hope to hear from some of you. Untill next time ladies! πŸ’‹

FLOWER Cosmetics Swatch & Review: Amazing Blush & Face Focus!

I am really excited to share my thoughts with you on this brand! I feel like it doesn’t get as much attention as it should, so here i am with a bunch of products i will swatch and review to help you form an opinion of your own on FLOWER cosmetics!

image

Above shown from left to right: 2 Transforming touch powder to creme blush, 2 Fragrance mist, Β 1 “Powder Up” Loose powder, 1 “About Face” Liquid Β foundation, 1 BB Cream, 1 “In Your Prime” Perfecting primer.

So, I love their packaging choice. It is so appealingΒ and lady-like. But let’s talk about the products themselves. Starting with theΒ Powder to Creme Blush.Β 

image

(“tickled pink & a-cor-able“)

Retail price: $12.98 USD each.

As you can see, these blushes come in a sifter type powder jar. The sifting holes are actually the perfect size, and all you need to do is tap it lightly upside down with the lid screwed on tight, and then flip it back right side up. Tap lightly on the lid, open your jar and you should have more than enough blush available for you to dip into. This is the finest powder blush i have ever seen. It is like the consistency of confectioners sugar, no joke. You almost need to be careful while applying it, try not to inhale any haha! So light weight, so beautiful and so blendable. You really do not need a lot on the brush when applying this. Now here’s the crazy part, when it says powder to creme, it means powder to creme. Check out this swatch i have on my arm.

* I applied more product than necessary just to show you the transforming property.

image

(“A-cor-able & tickled pink“)

Amazing! You’ve got to try these blushes ladies, they apply so nicely and last quite a while on your face. I absolutely LOVE them.

❀

Now, let’s focus on the face.

image

(“Powder Up” Loose face powder in L01)

Retail price: $9.98 USD

This stuff is great, and the little powder puff included inside again goes back to the lady-like Β beautiful packaging. The texture of the powder is so smooth and silky and it applies wonderfully. Even though i love the puff, i still prefer applying this with a powder brush. There will be a swatch below with the liquid foundation & BB cream as well. They have a few different shades for all the beautiful skin tones of you ladies. I would really recommend giving this a try!

image

(“About Face” foundation, BB cream, “In Your Prime” Perfecting face primer)

Retail prices (in order): $13.98, $12.98, $12.98 USD.

Now we have the liquid foundation, BB cream and perfecting primer! Overall, i think the two tinted products have great coverage, texture and wearability.Β And the primer is SO luxurious and smells amazing & fresh, like you just washed your face! Dries quickly, doesn’t leave you feeling sticky and works wonderfully as an eyeshadow primer as well. Let me show you some swatches of the loose powder, the liquid foundation and the BB cream. (In that order below)

image

I have already shared my thoughts on the loose powder, but now you can see the silky smooth texture. I really like using the BB cream as a brightener to use under my eyes, bridge of my nose etc… As you can see it is a bit more yellow toned, so it works very nicely for brightening with my skin tone. I like to apply that with a moist beauty blender. The liquid foundation is obviously good for full coverage, but it also works great for spot coverage over blemishes! You should really give it a shot and order these for yourself in your best suited shade, they are all fantastic and quality products.


Last but not least; The Fragrance Mists. The bottles are huge, they will last forever and they smell like heaven! What more can i say? I personally think the two i have shown below have very similar aromatic qualities to Victoria secret body sprays. Cherished is the white bottle, it has a very sweet, warm vanilla scent that lingers on you. Such as Victoria Secret’s “warm and cozy” body spray. It is intoxicating. ❀ Radiant is in the pink metallic bottle, it has a very refreshing ‘rolling through a field of new spring flowers’ type of smell. Very classy. ❀ It’s important to smell as good as you look after all!

(“Cherished & Radiant”)

Retail price: $14.98 USD each

Thanks for reading!
