Face of the Day  — July 23, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey! This week I brought you this sultry purple look. Here’s how I got it:

I started with Murad Oil-Control Mattifier to combat the horribleness of shiny skin in the middle of the day. I concealed under my eyes with LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Yellow and other areas with LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Ivory. Then I blended the crap out of that with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

I added some color with a Sigma f40 and some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. I set the areas I concealed with some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo. I swept away the excess with a Morphe e41 and blended once again with a Morphe m530. 

For some color on my cheeks, I grabbed a Sigma f15 and swept on some Jouer Bronzer in Sunshine. 

I mapped out my brow shape with a NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil in Brunette. I filled them in and shaped them with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. 


I prepped my eyes with a Sigma e58 and a smidge of NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone. 

I then grabbed my Sigma e40 and applied the Soirée shade from my Blackheart Magic Spell Palette as a transition shade. I used a Sigma e30 to apply some of the Spotlight shade deeper into the crease. I blended that out with a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. 

I used a Morphe e14 and a Morphe m508 to add some of the Spotlight shade to the inner and outer eyelids and the lower lash line. 

I used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to add some of the Tinsel shade to the center of the eyelids. 

To highlight the brow bones, I used another e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush and some NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Lace. 

I doused myself in Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer and said a quick prayer that all the hard work I did wouldn’t just melt off. 

I threw on some L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. I lined and filled in my lips with NYX Cosmetics Lipliner in Mauve. I topped that off with a little shine of Palladio Plump n Shine Plumping Lipgloss in Crystal Ice. 

And that’s all for today. I’ll see you soon!

Morphe 35R Swatches — July 20, 2017

Morphe 35R Swatches



Hey! I grabbed the Morphe 35R Palette this week and figured I’d share some swatches with you. 


So it’s a lot of neutrals and golden shades. 

This is the first row. 


And the second. 


And the third. 


And the fourth. 


And the last. 

Beautiful, right? So glad I grabbed it. I promise I’ll use it in a look soon!

Mask Monday — July 17, 2017

Mask Monday


This week I tried the Masque Bar Oxygen Bubble Sheet Mask. It was super interesting to see it at work. 


This is pretty much how it looks when you first apply it. It starts to tickle some, because it bubbles up really quickly. 


And this is how it looks moments later. 

At the end, my skin felt super clean. It was okay, and definitely an experience, but I don’t know if I will try it again. I just like to try new things, and I’m not sure if this was special enough to stay in the rotation. 

See you soon!

Face of the Day  — July 15, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey! So this week I decided to switch it up and do something more colorful. I played a bit with the BH Cosmetics Take Me to Brazil Eyeshadow Palette. 

I started with a Sigma e58 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in White. Then I used a Sigma e40 to apply a transition shade with Stila Eyeshadow in Puppy. 

I used my Sigma e30 to precisely apply the 7×3 color from the BH Cosmetics Take Me to Brazil Eyeshadow Palette. 

I then used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to apply the following colors from the same eyeshadow palette to my eyelids: 5×2 in the inner part, 6×1 to the middle, and 7×2 to the outer part. 


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

I set that with a Morphe e41 and some Ben Nye Fair Translucent Powder. I added some color with a Sigma f40 and a bit of Anastasia Contour Powders in Java and Fawn. I blended that out with a Morphe m530 until my arms hurt. 

I also faked a flush with a Sigma f15 and some Jouer Powder Blush in Peony. I then blended (again!) with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 
Then, to fake a glow, I used a Morphe m310 to sweep on some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Mermaid Fantasy. 

Now for the all important brows. I shaped them and filled them in with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. I also darkened them up a bit with 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. 

I then used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to highlight my brow bones with NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Lace. 

Then I drenched myself in Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer and said a quick prayer to the makeup gods that my hard work stays put. 

I prepped my lashes with Lorac Pro Lash Pomade. I then tossed on some Red Cherry Lashes in 415 with the usual Duo Eyelash Adhesive. 

I smeared on some Violet Voss Liquid Lipstick in Risqué and patted some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Mermaid Fantasy in the center. 

And that’s all! See you soon!

Beauty Trash — June 27, 2017

Beauty Trash



It’s that time! Time to dig through my trash with me. 

Masque Bar Oxygen Bubble Sheet Mask: this was well… interesting. There will be a quick review on Monday. Stay tuned! 

Novex Bamboo Extra Deep Hair Care Cream: this is amazing. Maybe not SHRD amazing, but the price point is also on a whole other level. Will be grabbing more. 

Aztec Secrets Indian Healing Clay: will definitely be repurchasing. One of the few skin care products I stick with. 

Revlon Uniq One: ehhhh. It’s good. But I have sooooo much hair that I’m not sure this is worth it. 

Strong Sexy Hair Core Strength Hair Mask: this is good. Leaves my hair soft. As you can tell, I like to rotate a lot of different hairs masks in and out, but I might pick up another one to keep in the rotation. 

Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer: if you know me, you know I already had another bottle to replace this one. 


Ardell Wispies: I always have a few of these on hand. I’ve been avoiding wearing lashes for a while now, though. At least while I’m going through this faze, I’ll probably not pick any more up. 

Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer: I know. Pretty sad, right? 

Pre Heels: so. I used this for a purpose other than what it’s made for. And it worked okay. I think the bottle didn’t last long enough though. Stay tuned for another post discussing more. 

Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel:  I will never not repurchase this. 

My Spa Life Shimmering 24K Gold Under Eye Treatment: will not be repurchasing. Saw literally no difference with use. 

Ursa Major 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic: I love this. Even though it’s formulated for a man. 

Murad Renewing Eye Cream: so I probably won’t be in a rush to buy this again. I’ve been trying out a couple other ones that I like better. 


L’Oréal Oreor Creme 30 Volume Developer: Well, this is something I use pretty often, so I will probably end up with more. 

And that’s all this time! See you soon!

Face of the Day  — June 25, 2017

Face of the Day 



This week I went a little bit more classic. Here’s how I got the look:

I started by prepping my face against the hateful oil weigh some Murad Oil Control Mattifier. 

I then played a little with my new Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. I like the way it works. I used a dampened Beauty Blender to blend it out. 

I needed some extra help under my eyes, so I threw on some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Yellow and blended that out with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

Now, the Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer was a little trickier. It was more difficult to use, but did blend wonderfully with that same Beauty Blender. 

For Blush, I used (you guessed it!) Perricone MD No Blush Blush. This I blended out with my fingers. 

I also used my fingers to apply some (duh!) Perricone MD No Highlighter Highlighter. 

Now for powder products. I used a Sigma f40 to add some definition to my face with some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. 

I also set all the areas I used concealer with some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo. I let that sit for a minute, then swept away the excess with a Morphe e41 Brush. I then grabbed a Morphe m530 to blend, blend, blend. 

For a flush, I used a Sigma f15 to sweep some Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini on my cheeks. I then blended again with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

Now for brows. I mapped out the basic shape with a NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil in Brunette. Then I better defined and filled them in with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. 

To clean up the edges, I used a Sigma e58 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone. 

To fake a glow, I used a Morphe m310 to sweep the second highlighter from the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette along my cheekbones and down my nose. 


For a transition shade, I used a Sigma e40 to apply the first eyeshadow from the same palette. Then I used a Sigma e30 to apply the third eyeshadow deeper into my crease. I blended that out with a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. 

For the lid, I used a Morphe e14 to pack on the ninth eyeshadow, but used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to add some of the seventh eyeshadow to the center.

I coated my lashes a few times with some L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. 

I finished off the look with Squeem Luxury Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet. 

See you soon!

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!
