Update: New Natured Beauty Products! πŸŒΏπŸ’„πŸŒΏ

Hi beautiful ladies! I wanted to stop by your feed to share some beautiful new products being sold by Natured Beauty, the wonderful Etsy shop I had mentioned a little while back. The owner Philicia, has been busy at work creating new products and shades to offer us!

Let’s get right into it- starting with the first new lipstick shade she sent me called “International Lover” a dusty, gorgeous pink.
* Looks a tad brighter in this picture than it does in person. *

I have already reviewed the actual lipsticks by Natured Beauty LLC for you in my last post about her lovely shop. But if you don’t recall what I said about them- they are seriously  SO creamy, smell wonderful and they are amazingly opaque! Just as good as my MAC lipsticks, no joke ❀ Her lipsticks hydrate your lips as well as making them look kissable & fabulous. Something MAC did the opposite for me- my lips always felt dry during & after wearing their lippies. 

Next let’s look at her new Buttercream Cupcake Scented Liquid Lip Creams & Hybrids!!! πŸŽ‚

Meet the “Sinful” hybrid, a gorgeous coral yet pinky-toned red that has been sprinkled with fine silver glitter. This is one my absolute favorites out of the shades she sent me! ❀️ It is just such a sexy, vivid color that would look so great on date night paired with a little black dress πŸ˜‰πŸ‘— If only I had a pair of heels in this EXACT shade…

Next we have the beautiful Yellow Liquid Lip Cream in Lemonade Pop- If you remember my last post I had reviewed a yellow lipstick by Natured Beauty called “Lemonade Pop”. This is basically the liquid version- maybe just a tiny bit more vibrant! πŸ’› I seriously just have a special place in my heart for bright yellow lipstick. Maybe it’s because I find it an appealing contrast with my deeply dark hair and eyes, or maybe it’s because I think it is the PERFECT festival lippie color, it radiates sunshine and good vibes! From inside your heart and from your lips! You can’t help but feel bright when you have this shade on 🌟🌞🌟

Now we have “Midnight Purple” Hybrid πŸ’œ This shade is such a rich, kind of galactic-spacey, indigo purple. It is just magnificent! Stunningly beautiful with the many multidimensional shifts of blue and violet. I have never seen anything quite like this shade before, not to mention the color payoff is great and it’s got a super creamy texture. You will feel like a true, sexy space explorer in this color! πŸ˜‰πŸš€πŸ’•

This one is DEFINITELY my other favorite, this is the “Grey Goose” lip cream. And by favorite, I mean I am going insane over it. This Liquid Lip Hybrid is sure to turn heads everywhere you go. Seriously, just look at this shade!!! It is a very modern, unique stone color. I know for a fact I am going to be wearing this 24/7, Lol! It is just an extremely sophisticated and well rounded shade, something we have yet to see from high end brands like MAC and JStar Cosmetics. If you are a fan of grey, greige, violet greys ANYTHING cool grey toned- you must try “Grey Goose.” You’re gonna be addicted to this one ❀️❀️❀️ Somebody call Alchoholics Anonymous! 😡

Here I am showing you her beautiful Black Liquid Lip Cream paired up with the Natured Beauty “Grey Goose” lip cream. This black shade is literally black as black as black can be! πŸ˜„ It’s an amazing formula too, because it DOES NOT stain or get stuck deep in your lip creases, like most black and dark red/purple liquid lippies tend to do. Anyways, I wanted to show you what creative things you could do with the black. Like a grey and black ombre effect! Or any color for that matter! The options are endless with Natured Beauty’s Liquid Lip Creams & Hybrids πŸ•ΈπŸŒšπŸ•Έ Love this color so so much, it’s a very easy black to work with which can be hard to find in liquid lipsticks. Easy to wipe away mistakes, hydrating to your lips and no dark staining at all! 


Please do go check out Philicia’s shop here: Natured Beauty LLC! Pick out something you like and try it out for yourself- you won’t be dissapointed! These products are beautiful, good for you and made with love & care πŸŒΏπŸ’„πŸŒΏ

Thanks for reading babes! I hope you liked this post, leave comments & thoughts for me πŸ™ƒ

Rainbow Highlighter DIY!!! πŸ’•πŸ¦„πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ’•

Hi ladies! I’m back today to share with you a DIY tutorial on how to make your own unicorn/rainbow/mermaid highlighter! YES! A full tutorial on how to do it! If you are a beauty product fanatic like me- I’m sure you have all seen the new prism highlighter craze. The original producer of this highlighter is by an Etsy shop called Bitter Lace Beauty, but there were down sides to ordering it from the original maker…

1. It costs $22.00 

2. Being a small Etsy shop- It’s on preorder from 9-10 months. Since everyone has realized they need this in their life at the same time lol

3. Once my order is ready in almost a year, shipping makes me wait even longer for it to arrive

So with those three key points bothering me, I decided it can’t be that hard to DIY. So I went ahead and DIY’d it! The project was a MAJOR success, and I urge any and all of you to do it at home. Ecspecially if you just aren’t patient enough to wait for someone else to make it and send it to you! Let’s get right into it. First we’ll talk about the items you will need to complete this job…
What you’ll need: 
1. Cheap brightly colored eyeshadows- primarily in light pink, light orange, bright yellow, light green, light blue and purple. I used all L.A. Colors shadows ($1.00 each)


2. Rubbing Alcohol 90%-100% will work just fine.


3. An old compact you can empty the rest of the product out of. Face powder, blush any medium sized compact will do (clean, rinse and dry this out afterward. It needs to be clean & dry)


4. A small jar to mix the shadow, shimmer and alcohol in


5. A highlighter/shimmer medium to mix in with your crushed eyeshadows. I used “gossamer” by Bare Minerals. Works absolutely great for this! This is what really makes this highlighter- a highlighter. 


6. Paper towels for blotting

7. Butter Knife & Mixing Tool

STEP ONE: So what you are going to do is start off with light pink- then do light orange, then bright yellow, then light green, then blue, then purple last. This will give you the ideal “rainbow prism” of colors. Start by shaking less than a tsp. of gossamer into the bottom of your mixing jar, then empty out your pink shadow pan into the mixing jar as well. Crush it up as finely as you can and get it thoroughly blended with the shimmer. If the color is a bit too dark for your liking- you can add some white shadow to the powders you are mixing. Blend and crush together thoroughly, adding the gossamer as needed. Test swatch this loose powder on your arm when it’s all mixed up, because this will show you just how shimmery and how opaque it will be once its dried out in it’s new compact. πŸ™‚

STEP TWO: Now that you have the shade and sparkle desired, add a little rubbing alcohol to the powder mixture. Start off slow- you can always add more but you can’t take away once it’s in there. You are looking to make a metallic paste, but not too thin or runny. It needs to have some ‘hold’ to it in order to pat it down into the pan with all the other colors. But if it’s too thick- you wont be able to spread out a nice flat surface in your compact. It will look gritty and space up when you try to spread it out. If you see you have it too runny- add a little more shadow, or gossamer to the mixture to thicken it up a tad. If its too thick but almost there, add a few drops of alcohol until you get it where you want it. Be patient and don’t have a heavy hand with this step! #crucial

STEP THREE: Once you have you first color ready to be placed into the compact, pat it down in there on the left hand edge. Then each other color you mix up will go in a nice stripe next to that one- so on and so forth. Make sure each row isn’t took thick or you will run out of space before you make it to the last color, purple. Now that it’s patted down in there, it doesn’t look too flat. It looks bumpy rightnow, but not to worry! Just take the flat edged tip of a butter knife and swipe it against the top of the color lightly to give it an even, smooth face. Finally, you are going to take your paper towel and lightly press down onto your color you have just placed into your compact. You can push the product into corners or edges, and any gaps that show can be fixed with this step using your finger and paper towel. Just press lightly! πŸ™‚ 

Repeat for each color and then leave to dry completely for about 4 -6 hours. Once you can no longer smell rubbing alcohol, it’s ready to use! How exciting right? So forget preorders, wait times, and shipping delays! DIY! Check out my final product- 



I am so glad I decided to give this a shot- I felt a little unsure in the beginning, but man did it all work out just fine! πŸ˜‰ What do you think? Do you like my custom made prism highlighter? 🌈 Leave comments & thoughts for me! Love ya ❀️

Now for my super good, super easy detox water recipe! This is SO simple anyone can do it!

Β 

You will need:Β 

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • A Cucumber
  • An Orange
  • Bag of Black Chia Seeds
  • Can of Coconut Water (optional)

Β 

Chia is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients without being loaded with calories. Almost all of the carbs in them are actually fiber, and they can actually help you lose weight. They can be added to any type of drink, smoothies, cereal, oats, salads and more. This bag cost me $4.00 and will last me an extremelyΒ long time since you use small amounts.

Β Β 

I started off by throwing in Raspberries, blackberries and thinly sliced orange and cucumber in my pitcher. I used a little less than half the cucumber, and i sliced up half the orange and squeezed the other halfs’ juice into the pitcher.

Β Then i slightly muddled (squished) the ingredients with a long wooden spoon. Crushing up almost all of the rasberries but leaving the other fruits in tact and beautiful.

Β 

After that step, it’s time to add your Chia Seeds. I used 2 tablespoons.

Β 

Toss them in ontop of your fruit and use your spoon to mix things up. Then put a load of ice ontop your fruit, followed by a can of coco water and regular ice water. Mix mix mix!

Β 
It takes overnight for the flavors to hint the water. The next day you will have a lovely, healthy and beautiful drink to fuel your morning! The seeds and ingredients will settle at bottom like so:

Β 
That’s normal! All you need to do is stir it up, pour yourself a glass and enjoy πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸŠπŸ‡πŸŽ

I hope you guys enjoyed this terribly long post, please do leave comments & thoughts for me! πŸ’­
