Mask Monday  — June 19, 2017

Mask Monday 



This week I tried out the SkinRx Lab MadeCera Express Mask. 


After using, my face felt hydrated and super smooth. I also appreciated how the serum on this mask also feels creamy, as opposed to super oily or goopy. It was wet enough, without dripping all over me. 

Definitely check it out of you can get your hands on it! 

See you soon!

Face of the Day  — June 17, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey there! This week I tried something a little more artsy for you. I’m not sure I love how it turned out, but everyone that saw it loved it, so here goes. 

Since I’m like an oily mess, I started by prepping my face with Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. I then used a Sigma e58 to apply some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone to my eyelids to prep them for later. 

I highlighted and concealed under my eyes with some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Yellow and Light Ivory. I blended the crap out of that with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

To add some depth, I used a Sigma f40 to bronze a bit with Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. 

I used that same Beauty Blender from before to put some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo to the area I wanted to highlight. After a couple of minutes, I used a Morphe e41 to sweep away the excess. Then I once again blended, with a Morphe m530 this time. 

To fake a flush, I used my Sigma f15 to sweep some Jouer Powder Blush in Peony on my cheeks. Then, guess what! I blended again! This time with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

To glow like I wish I could, I used my trusty Morphe m310 to sweep some Ben Nye Shimmer Powder in Cameo onto my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. 


Now for the brows! As usual, I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate to fill them in and shape them. I used a Sigma e58 and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige to clean up the edges. 

Next I grabbed a Sigma e40 and used Adorable from my Blackheart Pastel Dreams Palette as a transition shade. In my crease, I used a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to apply some Sweetheart from the same palette. For my eyelids, I used a Morphe e14 to pay on some Hello Lovely from the same palette. 

Now for the fun part! 

I started with a pretty bold winged liner using LA Splash Cosmetics Art-Ki-Tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner. 

I used NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Liner in Vivid Delight to create small dots along the liner to represent the center of flowers. 

Then, I used a Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush dipped into Stila Liquid Lipstick in Como, and used it to create “petals” around the orange dots. 

For leaves, I used a Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliner in Emerald Glisten. 

Then, as usual, I doused myself in Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer and said a prayer to the makeup gods that my hard work doesn’t melt away. 

I prepped my lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. I tossed on the third pair from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns set with a bit of Duo Eyelash Adhesive. 

I finished of the whole thing with some Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Curvy Candy. 

I’ll see you soon!

Face of the Day  — June 3, 2017

Face of the Day 



This week I got a little bit playful with the look! Here’s how I got it:

I started by prepping my skin with Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. 

I then highlighted and concealed under my eyes with a mixture of LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Ivory and Light Yellow. I blended that in with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

Next, I grabbed my Sigma f40 and used it to add some dimension with some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. I then used that same Beauty Blender from before and added some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo to areas I wanted to highlight. 

After a couple of minutes, I used a Morphe e41 to sweep away the excess powder. Then I blended it all until my arms hurt with a Morphe m530. 

To fake a flush, I used a Sigma f15 to sweep some Palladio Matte Blush in Chic onto my cheeks. I then once again blended with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

To fake a glow, I used  Morphe m310 and a Sigma e30 to highlight my cheekbones and tear duct areas with some NYX Cosmetics Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel. 


Now for brows. I used a Anastasia Duo Brush 7 to shape and fill them in with NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. I cleaned up the edges with a Sigma e58  and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige. 

I used a Sigma e75 to create a winged liner with some Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Como, leaving it fairly thick. I then added another winged liner closer to the lash line, skinnier so as not to cover all the purple, using a LA Splash Cosmetics Art-ki-tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner. 

I doused myself with Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer, locking all that hard work in. 

I prepped my lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. I used some Duo Eyelash Adhesive to throw on the second pair from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns set. 

Lastly, I find bed off the look with some Palladio Plump n Shine Plumping Lipgloss in Crystal Ice. 

See you soon!

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette  — June 2, 2017

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette 



Hey! So today I thought I’d share my thoughts in the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette. Let’s jump in! 


Excuse the cracked mirror. This is what happens when you have a rambunctious 8-year-old running around. 


The first row of shadows. Beautiful colors. 


Second row of shadows. More deep and shimmery options here. 


Highlighter row. Soooooo pigmented! Like crazy! 

Overall, the colors are beautiful, the pigmentation is great, and I’d say these colors would work for most people. Definitely worth grabbing! Stay tuned. I’ll use this in a look soon!

May 2017 Obsessions — June 1, 2017

May 2017 Obsessions



This is everything I’ve been obsessing over this month! 


The moment I couldn’t have lived without: This little Booger came to visit me. This is Charleigh, my nine month old neice. Isn’t she the cutest thing ever? 


The song I’ve had on repeat: Vacay by Sunny & Gabe. I first heard this in a coke commercial, and fell in love. When I tried to buy it, I found out it wasn’t released yet. It’s finally here!!!


The show I binge watched: The Unbreakabke Kimmy Schmidt. Honestly? Not sure if I loved this season as much. But I’ll take it. 


The returning/ new (???) show I am most excited about: Twin Peaks!!! I have a slight obsession with Twin Peaks. So when they brought it back, I freaked out. 


The book I couldn’t put down: The Program by Suzanne Young. Young love, danger, memory loss, what more could you ask? 

The product I was thankful for: Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel. Because it’s almost summer and everyone needs baby soft feet. 


The hair product I used religiously: Kinky Curly Come Clean Shampoo. Finally! A clarifying Shampoo that’s sulfate free that actually works! I’m trying to fade my pink hair a bit, so this has been super helpful. 

The products that have amazed me: I’ve been mixing this Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Jason Vitamin E Oil and applying it to my lashes. I don’t know if it is helping them grow, but my lashes are super soft, my mascara is applying less clumpy, and I’ve been skipping false lashes most days. 

How my face has avoided melting off: Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. This actually works. My face stays wayyyyy more Matte throughout the day when I apply this under my makeup. 

The nails I got the most compliments on: Nailhur Criss Cross Stiletto nails


The product I can’t stop applying: Dr. Bronner’s Magic Organic Lip Balm in Naked. Avocado Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Beeswax, Cannabis Sativa Oil, and Vitamin E based. What else could you possibly be looking for?


What could easily been the reason I gained a hundred pounds: Oreo Lemon Thins. Pretty amazing. I promise. Try them. 

That is all for this month. I’ll see you soon!
