Spring Favorites 

As you already know spring is my favorite season. Lately I noticed I use these certain products often. So why not share my favorite products.

1. First is Color Pop Matt lipstick ( I don’t like the glossy shiny look (except for nude lip gloss)  lately I use a combo of  “guess” and “avenue” I love these two colors together 💕 . I need to re-up before I run out. Color pop tend to be a little drying so I suggest prepping your lips prior application. Each of these lipsticks are $6 a pop super inexpensive.


2. Sephora 10HR wear perfection foundation in the color fonce deep 57 chocolate 🍫 its oil free which is perfect for my oily skin. It’s light weight and matches perfectly with my skin. This by far is my go to foundation for sure. If I’m mistaken it’s only $20 to me that’s a very fair price.

3. Marc Jacobs Honey Listen when I say this smells good ! I mean it 😍 it has a sweet elegance smell to it. It’s not strong but it’s enough to get you stopped 😅 . I purchased this at my nearest Tjmax for 35.99 compared to 79.99 😊

Natural Make Up Look 

For some reason lately the natural look is my go to make up look for some months now. Here and there I will do a pop of color with my eyeshadow or lips but overall my looks are pretty much natural. I recently started using Sephora fondation (which I love so much). I used the stripple Brush for a smooth application.  

So you might notice that my make up application had gotten so much better. Practice makes perfect for sure I can see a major difference looking back 2 years ago. I still have a lot to learn so I’ll continue to practice. Below is a list of items I used to achieve this look. 

Items used : 

  1. Fondation Sephora foce deep chocolate “57”
  2. Elf eye liner 
  3. LA pro concealer “chestnut” 
  4. Lashes : wispes
  5. Milani lipstick “teddy bear” 
  6. Highlight nikka 
  7. Brows elf “dark brown”

 

Drug Store Junkie 

When it comes to make up I like to keep it simple and my pockets happy . I love make up but it can be quiet expensive. I’m pretty certain that’s the reason why all of my make up are drug store make up . I don’t own high end make up except my Mac concealer that I purchased 3 years ago . You can look fabulous with out breaking the bank . Listed below  are the items I can’t go without . I pretty much use these items daily. 

  1. Foundation : Revlon 24 hr color stay 
  2. Concealer : Mac nw45 , LA pro girl concealer HD “Chestnut” 
  3. Lips : Nyx butter gloss “tiramisu” 
  4. Brows : elf brow kit “dark” 
  5. Setting pray : elf 
  6. Mascara : ulta curl mascara 

After years of trying products,  drug store products makes my pocket happy ! I can’t begin to tell you how expensive make up can be . But then again if your reading this you already have an idea . I hope these products help you in some way .

Purple Passion

Hey ladies lately I’ve been getting myself into make up . I mean I’ve always loved make up but I mean I really love love it now . YouTube has been my place to Brush my skills and learn new techniques. I had the honor to be my best friend maid of honor this past weekend . The wedding was absolutely beautiful . Of course she asked my to do everyone make up . Including herself . Let’s just say hats down to all the professional make up artist . The hours of standing is CRAZY . I was bummed after the wedding all I wanted was a hot bath and shower .

My favorite new technique is highlighting under the eye . (Concealing) and if you read my pervious post you’ll see that my favorite concealer is the L.A pro high definition concealer . And my second fav is Mac .

Another technique is BLENDING !!!!!! Oh this part is so important I mean very important ! If you want flawless make up blending is like the number one rule and of course you must have good brushes to achieve this technique .

Ladies I’m no make up artist but I’m learning as I go . Basically I’m self taught . This look I’ve created has gotten so many raves on my social media ( thinking about creating a YouTube channel soon) I love this look. I’ve finally gotten the steps for blending four colors .

Products I use for this look :

Foundation : Maybelline dream liquid mousse air brush finish cocoa dark #3
Brows : e.l.f eyebrow kit (dark)
Eyes : costalscents pallet , dollar store pallet ( good stuff ) eyeliner by e.l.f
Lashes : e.l.f natural
Blush : nyx rouge cream blush
Lips: L.A colors berry ice (my favorite lippe) and only 1$ !!!!!!
