Let’s Talk: Danielle Erase Your Face Reusable Makeup Removing Cloth — May 23, 2017

Let’s Talk: Danielle Erase Your Face Reusable Makeup Removing Cloth



We all remember the Makeup Eraser craze. It was a makeup erasing cloth that cost about twenty dollars that people got super into. Since that time, I’ve discovered a much cheaper alternative. This is the Danielle Erase Your Face Reusable Makeup Removing Cloth. This costs less than half of the price of the original. Or you can even grab a four pack for $9.99 at someplaces! 


So, as you can see, all you need to do is dampen the cloth to use it. Then just go to town removing all your makeup. 


Here I’ve tried to remove about half my makeup so you can see how well it works. (Excuse the horrible lighting and hair, please. It was super late at night.) 

I’d say it works! Definitely worth grabbing! 

Alright. I’ll see you soon!

Mask Monday: Bliss Mask A-‘Peel’ Complexion Clearing Rubberizing Mask — May 22, 2017

Mask Monday: Bliss Mask A-‘Peel’ Complexion Clearing Rubberizing Mask



This week I decided to test out the Bliss Mask A-‘Peel’ Complexion Clearing Rubberizing Mask.  I picked this up for ten dollars, and it’s a once time use. 

When you open the box, here’s what it looks like. 


Inside is a small foil sealed cup (that feels almost empty) and a plastic spatula. 


You basically fill the powder filled cup with cold water to the fill line, and stir with the spatula. Then you use the same spatula to apply it to your  face. 


Which basically worked okay, until I was almost done. At that point, I realized I didnt really mix it well enough. I left it in for about 20 minutes. 


At which point it was dry and easily peeled off. 



After that, I just washed away the leftovers with warm water. 

Overall, I didn’t see much difference in my skin after using this. I’m not sure I’d spend the money on it again. I’ve definitely used other peel off type masks that did more. 

I’ll see you soon!

Face of the Day  — May 20, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey! So this week I wanted to play with colors I don’t typically reach for. Here’s what I came up with. 

I started by prepping my face with a few spritzes of Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray. 

Then I concealed and highlighted my face with LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Ivory and Light Yellow. I blended that out until my arms hurts with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

To add some definition and depth, I used a Sigma f40 to lightly contour with some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. I once again blended with a Morphe m530. 

I then used my Beauty Blender to apply some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo to the areas of my face I like to highlight. I waited a couple of moments, then used a Morphe e41 to sweep away the excess. 

For a bit of flush on my cheeks, I grabbed a Sigma f15 and swept on some Palladio Matte Blush in Chic. Then I once again blended with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

For a nice glow, I swept some Ben Nye Shimmer Powder in Cameo Shimmer along my cheek bones and down the bridge of my nose with a Morphe m310. 


Now on to the eyes. I grabbed a Sigma e30 and put some NYX Cosmetics Nude Matte Shadow in Betrayal into my crease. I blended that out with a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. 

I dampened a Morphe e14 with some Mehron Mixing Liquid and used that to pack some Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder in Sun Yellow on to my eyelids. 

I applied some LA Splash Cosmetics Art-ki-tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner. About that, I swept on some NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Liner in Vivid Delight. 

Most important part now. The brows. I used my trusty Anastasia Duo Brush 7 to fill them in and shape them with some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. To clean up the edges, I used a Sigma e58 and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige. 

I drenched myself in some Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray for Oil Control. 

I prepped my lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. I slapped in some Ardell Wispies with some Duo Eyelash Adhesive. 

I finished off the look with some LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof Liquid Lipstick in Latte Confession. 

And that’s all. I’ll see you soon!

Let’s talk Jamsu… also known as diving  — May 18, 2017

Let’s talk Jamsu… also known as diving 


So this week I decided to finally break down and try the newest makeup trend. Jamsu, or diving, is kind of weird when you first hear about it. 

You basically apply your cream makeup. I started with Skindinavia Primer Spray. I then applied some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige with a Morphe m439. 

To conceal and highlight, I applied some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Ivory and Light Yellow and blended that out with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

Next I grabbed a Up and Up Stippling Brush and applied some RMS Lip Shine in Bloom to my cheeks. This is technically for lips, but I like the color more as a blush. 

For a bit of a glow, I used a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush to sweep some Tata Harper Very Illuminating Highlight onto my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. 

Then you apply a ton of baby powder in top of that. I used Johnson’s Pure Cornstarch Baby Powder. Like here’s what I look like:


Be prepared to make a mess of whatever you’re wearing and your hair, by the way. 

The you place your face into freezing cold ice water for about 30 seconds. 


This was not pleasant. Believe me. Also, I found that there was still bits of baby powder left in my face. Maybe I put on too much. I don’t know. 

Then you pat dry. Not wipe. Just pat. 


You’re left with a super matte, smooth finish. 


I threw on mascara and brows and went about my day. As usual I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. I also used some L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. To finish if off I swept on some Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. 

About four hours later, I was still matte. 

At the end of the day, I was still super matte. Kind of to the point that I was a little bit nervous it would be hard to remove. 

But it all worked out perfectly in the end. This isn’t something I would go through every day, maybe just save it for special occasions. 

That’s all! See you soon!

May 2017 Beauty Trash — May 16, 2017

May 2017 Beauty Trash



It’s time to dig through my beauty trash. This is all the things I’ve used up in about the past month and a half. Let’s jump in! 

Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel: always going to repurchase this. Always. 

Glamglow Youthcleanse Daily Exfoliant Cleanser: its okay. Not sure it’s worth the price. 


Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask: ehhhh it was okay. I will not be running out to grab more. 

Whamisa Real Kelp Sheet Organic Facial Mask Pack: this is actually already a repurchase. I love this one. It’s so different from you typical cotton sheet masks. 

Glamglow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment: this is probably the Glamglow product I love the most. Definitely picking up the full size. 


NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate: I’ve already picked more up. The is my go to brow product lately. 

Glamglow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment: I like this more than the cleanser. But still probably not enough to grab the full size. 

Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray: this works. But other products I use work slightly better. So I won’t be grabbing more. 


Palladio The Brow Definer Micro Pencil in Black Brown: more black than brown. Good for slightly mapping out brows, or as eyeliner, but too dark to completely fill in with for me. 

Iroha Nature Peppermint Relax Relax Foot Mask Socks: these were okay. Nothing to rave about. 

Wunderbrow Brow Gel in Black Brown: while this doesn’t last the 3 days it claims it will on me, I do like this product. I would consider grabbing more. 


Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown: a lot of people’s Holy Grail Brow product. I like it. I just don’t always love the price point. 

Iroha Nature Charcoal Detox Peel Off Mask: I love this product. I don’t love the packaging. It’s a maybe for me. 

Palladio The Brow Definer Micro Pencil in Black Brown: read above. 


Rusk Anti-Frizz Spray Humidity-Resistant Working Spray: nice. Not too big on working sprays, but I would consider grabbing this one again. 

LA Girl Pro Powder HD Setting Powder: I hated this. I absolutely didn’t even want to finish it up. Will not be getting more. 

Ardell Demi Wispies: I don’t get it. I know people are kind of obsessed with these, but I prefer my regular Wispies all the way. 


Pretty Animalz by Masque Bar Fox Brightening Sheet Mask: so cute. I would repurchase just for that! 

And that’s all! I’ll see you soon!

Mask Monday — May 8, 2017

Mask Monday



This week I tried out Iroha Nature Charcoal Peel Off Mask. It’s supposed to be great for detoxing your skin. 

Let’s talk packaging. There’s supposed to be five uses in this packet, and it reseals. I’d say there’s more like 2-3 uses. And be prepared for a giant mess. Because of the way the package is, it gets everywhere. 


It’s also kind of runny compares to other charcoal peel off masks I’ve used, so I found it a little hard to control when applying. 

The peeling feeling was sort of medium. I feel like it was working, but it didn’t hurt the way some do. 

Overall, I’d recommend this. See you soon!

Face of the Day  — May 6, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey! This week I decided to bring you a more simple, classic look. Here’s how I created it!

I started by highlighting and concealing under my eyes with LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Natural and Light Yellow. I blended that until my arms hurt with a dampened Beauty Blender. I then applied some Ben Nye Fair Translucent Powder and swept off the excess with a Morphe e41. 

For some depth and definition, I used a Sigma f40 to bronze and slightly contour with Anastasia Contour Powders in Java and Fawn. I then blended the crap out of it with a Morphe m530. 

For some color, I used a Sigma f15 to sweep on some Jouer Powder Blush in Bloom. I blended that out (again!) with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

Now for brows. I mapped out the general shape with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. Then I filled them in a bit more with some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Powder in Dark Brown. I cleaned up the edges with a Sigma e58 and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige. 

Now for some glow! I used a Morphe m310 to apply some Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder in Golden Apricot to my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. 


 Now for the eyes. I started with a Sigma e30 and the brown shade from an Almay Intense I-Color Satin Kit Powder Shadow in Trio of Hazels. I used a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to blend that out some. Then I used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to apply the cream color to my eyelids. 

For a brow bone highlight, I used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to brush on some NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Lace. 

For the lips color, I dampened a Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush with some Mehron Mixing Liquid, and used that to apply some Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder in Cherry Red. 

I prepped my lashes with Lorac Pro Lash Pomade. Then I applied Blinking Beaute Premier Silk Collection Lashes in Mademoiselle with some Duo Eyelash Adhesive. 

I’ll see you soon!

Face of the Day  — April 29, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey! This week I played some more with the Violet Voss x Laura Lee Eyeshadow Palette. Here’s how I created the look:

I started with a Sigma e40 to apply Britches as a transition shade. Next, I grabbed a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to apply Fried into my crease. I deepened up the outer crease with a Sigma e30 and some Whiskers. Now for the eyelids. I used a Sigma e55 to pack on some Smashlee in the outer lid, and some Yoshi in the inner eyelid. I smoked out the lower lash line with an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush and some Bubs. I also highlighted my brow bones with Basic and another e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush. 


I used some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Natural and Light Ivory to highlight and conceal under my eyes and down the center of my face. I then blended until my arm hurt with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

I set that with a Morphe e41 and some Ben Nye Fair Translucent Powder. I added some depth to my face by contouring with a Sigma f40 and some Anastasia Contour Powders in Fawn and Java. I blended the crap out of that with a Morphe m530. For cheek color, I grabbed a Sigma f15 and swept on some Cargo Cosmetics Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos. I then blended again with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

I mapped out my brows with a Palladio The Brow  Definer Micro Pencil in Black/Brown. Then, to actually fill them in, I used an Anastasia Duo Brush and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Powder in Dark Brown. 

For the all important glow, I grabbed a Morphe m310 and swept on some Violet Voss Pro Highlighting Powder in Star Glow. 

I added winged liner using Palladio Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen in Black. I prepped my lashes with Lorac Pro Lash Pomade. I used some Duo Eyelash Adhesive to throw on some Ardell Wispies. I finished the whole look off with e.l.f. Cosmetics Matte Lip Color in Praline. 

And that’s all! I’ll see you soon!
