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!

Mani Monday — May 29, 2017

Mani Monday



Happy Mani Monday! The last couple of weeks at work have been super rough, and even rougher in my nails. 

So, in the mean time I just popper on these Nailhur Criss Cross Style Stiletto Nails. They are super easy to use, and are even reusable. 

For those of you wondering, the ice cream tat isn’t real, it’s an Inked by Dani Mani Pack one. There’s tons in the pack, but with the warmer weather I was really feeling this one. 

See you soon!

Face of the Day — May 27, 2017

Face of the Day



Hello everyone! I’ve been really missing glitter lately, so I decided to throw some in for you today. Here’s how I got the look:

I started by prepping my face with Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. This is super great at controlling my oil throughout the day. 

I then concealed and highlighted under my eyes and down the center of my face with LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Yellow and Light Ivory. I blended that out with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

For some dimension, I grabbed a Sigma f40 and lightly contoured with some Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. I used the same dampened Beauty Blender to apply some Morphe Translucent Powder baking style. I swept away the excess with a Morphe e41. I then blended until my arms hurt with a Morphe m530. 

To fake a flush, I used a Sigma f15 to sweep on some NARS Blush in Orgasm. I once again blended with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush. 

To fake a glow, I used a Morphe m310 to sweep some BH Cosmetics Wild and Radiant Baked Illuminating and Bronzing Palette (colors all kinda swirled together on my brush) along my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. 


Now for the fun part! Eyes! 

I started with a Sigma e30 and placed some NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Maneater into my crease. I used a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to blend that out. 

Next, I dampened a Morphe e14 with some Mehron Mixing Liquid. I used that to pat some NYX Cosmetics Pigment in Potion on to my eyelids. 

Next I dampened a Sigma e55 with some more Mehron Mixing Liquid. I used that to pat some NYX Cosmetics Face and Body Glitter in Rose on to the center of my eyelids. 

For my lower lash line, I used a Morphe m508 to smudge some purple shade from the Morphe 12p Palette. 

I shaped and filled in my brows with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some 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 added a wing with LA Splash Cosmetics Art-ki-tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner. 

Then I drenched my face in some Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer. 

I added some color to my lips with a smudge of NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick in Gumdrop, and topped that off with some Palladio Plump n Shine Plumping Lipgloss in Crystal Ice. 

I added a couple of layers of L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. 

To complete the look, I used some Duo Eyelash Adhesive to add the top pair from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns Lashes. 

I’ll see you soon!

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!
