HAUL

Hey everyone, ULTA’s 21 days of beauty just recently ended and I just received my last package, so you what that means! HAUL TIIIIME! I had to get my hands on some of these steal deals! If you do not know what ULTA’s 21 days of beauty is, it is one of the best beauty sales of the year! This means there can be anywhere between 1-5 products that are typically high priced items marked down! Some days the benefit brow bar even offers free eyebrow waxing! This is an event that I always get super excited for because I LOVE skincare, makeup and a good sale! I also picked up some typical items I needed that weren’t part of the sale and i’ll included them here too!

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder  ($27 $13.5)

I am super excited because my setting powder has hit pan, I needed a new one, and this has almost a 5 star rating! Continue reading “HAUL”

Morning Routine!

This will be a morning routine for my weekends because my work week morning routine is not something I am as passionate about and I do not have time to do all the things I love when I have to be to work by 8 AM! I am a morning person, but when I HAVE to be at work and then go to class right after my shift (I work at the college I attend) I am less than thrilled.

1) Check My phone!

Okay! So, I usually start by turning on my phone and looking through my tons of notifications! I almost always have emails from work, and then I have the occasional blog comments to read and reply to.

2)  Sit up and grab a water

I usually sit a bottle of water on my vanity for the morning. This is to encourage myself to drink more water! I am trying to get into the habit of drinking more water, plus it’s very refreshing!

3) Let My Bunnies out to play!

I usually get up and grab the bunny food, set up their area, and let them out. I think its so cute because they usually give me little bunny kisses right away.

4)  Get to showering

I like to shower in the morning because I can not eat right away and I love to be squeaky clean.

5) Skincare

After the shower, I do all of my lotions, creams, and oils to make sure my skin is hydrated and keep it well taken care of!

6) Get my breakfast

Since this is a weekend morning routine, my breakfast is almost always eggs with some cheese on top and a light and fit greek yogurt that I add oats and Chia seeds to.

7) Put some stuff in the wash

I usually have some towels to wash, and I always wash my bedding on the weekend so I like to start those early because if I do it too late in the afternoon, I run the risk of falling asleep before they’re finished.

8) Get to work

Now that I have done all of my little chores, If I have school work to do, I finish that up and then I get to brainstorming, taking pictures , and writing (the step I am on as I write this) for my blog!

This is pretty much an average weekend morning routine for me and one of my biggest morning routine goals is to get  ready even if I am nor going anywhere! I have heard this can make a person feel more productive and I want to try this out!

What is one of your morning routine goals?

Review: E.L.F lip exfoliant

Hello everyone! Today is a E.L.F Lip Exfoliant review! Lip exfoliators are so important for keeping your lips soft. Some lip exfoliation products can be so expensive, but I like this one because it is around $4 and works so well! I have mine in a minty flavor and the taste is decent, but very artificial (not that it is meant to be eaten). This is great because it is in the shape of a lipstick, which makes the application very easy. When rubbing this on the lips, you can feel the little grit that is in this, but it doesn’t hurt. I usually rub this on my lips like a lipstick, rub my lips together, and wipe it off! That’s it! Super quick and easy with great results! I do this a few times a month and honestly this little stick has lasted me quite a while! I recommend this to anyone looking for a great lip exfoliator!

What do you use for exfoliating your lips?

My pallet collection| Do you need these?

Hello everyone! I recently did a lip product collection and mentioned that I wanted to start doing posts like this for different parts of my collection, so that’s what were doing today!

Jaclyn Hill Palette

The Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette is one of the best eye shadow palettes that I have ever used! The palette has any color you could wish for! Perfect crease/ transition shade, highlight shades, mattes of all colors and shimmers that have hardly any fall out! I love this palette because not only are the colors beautiful, but they are highly pigmented and the blendability is out of this world! Each shadow was pressed individually, meaning they perform the best they possibly can. Some eye shadows, such as shimmers, have to be pressed more than mattes to diminish the fall out!

Realher

This is a palette that I received in a BoxyCharm box once upon a time and I haven’t used it all that much. I remember that when I fist got it I made quite a few looks with this. I think this is a great palette for travel!

Carli Bybel Palette

This is the original palette that Carli Bybel came out with before the deluxe that is now sold.  I still have this one and it is probably one of my most used palettes ever!

ULTA

I have used this palette quite a bit and it is nice for a natural makeup day. The shadows aren’t insanely pigmented, but they blend beautifully!

This was a random mini palette that was free with purchase, I have hardly used this one, but I do like the shimmers.

ULTA Powder Contour Palette

This was my first contour palette and it has been very well loved as you can see! The contour shades blend beautifully and I use the darker shades for eye shadow!

IBY Beauty Highlight & Contour Palette

I LOVE this palette so much! I even went through a stage where I was using the highlight shades to set my under eye and that worked beautifully. I HIGHLY recommend this palette!

 what’s your R.O.D palette?

Review: Estée Lauder Nightwear Plus Anti-Oxidant Night Detox Créme

Hey everyone! Today I am doing a quick review on the Estée Lauder NightWear Plus! Let me tell you what, I love this stuff! The smell isn’t too strong, but is a light cucumber scent (to me). The texture is very creamy and light , not heavy nor greasy.

The Performance

First of all, this did not break me out (yay!). After using this for a few nights, my skin looked very nice. My skin was more plump and smooth in the mornings, my redness diminished, and my facial skin became very soft! This product is very hydrating and after consecutive use, makes your skin look like it has a healthy glow from within! This product is $56.00 and I think it is worth every penny!

Have you tried the NightWear Plus?

Get ready with me

Hey everyone! I am going to a wedding today, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a get ready with me! One thing I always do is start with my eye makeup that way if any shadow falls onto the face, I do not mess up my whole face of makeup. I recommend trying this if you do not already!

I started by applying my concealer as an eye primer and then setting it with a skin colored powder. Any concealer or powder will work, I used my Fit Me concealer and my Fit Me powder

Then I went in with the lightest mauve-y color from my Oh- so -loved Carli Bybel palette.

I took this shade and put it lightly all over my eye lid and took it up to about my brow bone

Then I went in with the second darkest purple shade and mixed it with the matte brown. I took these colors and lightly blended them into my crease. REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS STEP! Really guys, make sure your shadow is blended the way you want it to be before moving on, or else it will look really sloppy later on in the look.

Next I went in with just the brown and put that in the outer V of my eye and lightly blended it so that it didn’t look too harsh

Then I took the golden shimmer shade on a wet brush and packed it on my lid, making sure to not cover the outer V that we just blended in the previous step.

After that I usually go in with my eyebrow powder. I do this step next because I like to have my eyebrows done to help guide me on how I do my liner and how far out I take it! I am big on natural brows just because my eyebrows are pretty full and they just look better on my face.

After brows I used my fav mascara and my fav liner real quick and I decided to go without lashes because I was rushing and I also think the look came out good without them!
Then, since this was an outdoor wedding, I went in with my r.o.d Hourglass Veil Mineral primer and my Matte BB Cream. This CoverGirl BB cream is great because it’s matte (great for outside days) and the coverage is thick for a BB cream!

Then of course I concealed my under eyes with my Fit Me concealer in the shade sand and I used my Fit ME powder to bake. TIP: if you do not have a loose powder to bake your under eye, just rub a plastic lid or the end of your brush on the powder and it will turn the top layer to loose powder!

Then I used my IBY Beauty palette to contour! I mixed contour one and Highlight shade 3, then I cut the contour with some yellow powder!

Then I used my ULTA brand blush highight duo because it gives a very nice peachy glow

The highlight I used was the second highlight shade in the Carli Bybel palette, which I’ve have hit pan on!

I used this lip liner

And this lip in the shade peaches and cream to top off the look!


Finally, my last step is setting the face with Mac Fix+! Any setting spray will do, I used this because it sets my makeup for all day!
