Matte Flirty & Curls

Hey luvs!

Today I’ve got a super cute and flirtatious combination to share with you all. Take a look at these gorgeous curls and sultry lip color!


There’s obviously no secret that I am definitely ready for fall. I’ve been itching to start moving into darker lips and this beautiful bergundy color by Milani called Matte Flirty is a perfect shade to help me transition into the new season. 

I have a growing collection of Milani’s matte lipsticks because they are so awesome. The application is nice and smooth and the colors are everything. The only thing that could make me love them more is if they didn’t kiss off. 

As for these great curls. I used my OGX Beauty Quenching Coconut Curls Hair Butter, my go-to for a juicy defined twist out. This stuff NEVER fails me.

These two great products helped my achieve this fabulous flirty look!

Oh My Gloss!

Good morning beauties!

Typically when it comes to lip wear I opt for a matte finish but, when I saw the new Oh My Gloss lip colors by Rimmel I decided to try one out.  I picked up the color Pin Up at Walgreens where all of the colors are currently on sale (but 1 get 1 1/2 off). 


This color is a really pretty pink that gives a nice juicy finish. It goes on really soft and is NOT sticky, which was my biggest concern.  This color is super vibrant and screams summertime! 


So, for those days or nights I want to go a bit luscious I’ll definitely go for this product. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go pick up a few more before the sale ends!


That’s it for now!

Spicy Brown

Hey beauties,

A while back I shared a new foundation I tried with you all. It was the Maybelline FitMe Matte Pourless foundation. I’d done a demo and review video that you can see here if you missed it.

Originally I bought two different colors, Coconut and Classic Tan Bronze


I combined the colors and the result was very nice. I adored how truly matte the foundations were.

Well, last week I re-uped on the foundation in a new color, Spicy Brown.


The results, AMAZING! This color gives me a deeper even more bronzed look. Either way this FitMe Foundation is life! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. You can find it at Walgreens for around $8. Well, that’s it for now, but first some pics with this beautiful Spicy  Brown color.

Headwrap Heaven

Good morning luvs!

Wash days that are filled with other to-dos can be a struggle. But, today I want to show you how a standard scarf can make it all better. Over the past few weeks I’ve adorned my tresses with three different scarves while I deep conditioned/moisturized my hair. Here’s a look at those looks.


In each of these looks the scarves are tied exactly the same.  I got so much love and requests for details on how I tied the scarves that I decided it could definitely be beneficial to a lot of you. Sooo, I filmed a detailed tutorial in hopes of showing you all how to get a dose of headwrap heaven with scarves you currently own. In addition, I also filmed this beautiful purple and gold makeup look.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Good morning Beauties,

Today I wanted to share a beauty product that I’ve recently tried and am loving!  If you’re anything like me and do not clean your makeup brushes every day (I clean mine weekly) finding a brush to apply your foundation daily without a ton of product buildup can be tough. I know all about this struggle! From the standard flat foundation brushes to the round flat foundation brushes, the product buildup in the brushes just makes the application process thick and not at all smoothe. That’s what lead me to Walgreens in search of something else. 

And because Walgreens never disappoints me, that’s where I came across the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. The #1 branded makeup sponge!

  
I hadn’t previously tried a product like this so I was anxious to see if I experienced the same thing.  I am so excited to say that despite applying my foundation every day for a week without cleaning the sponge, my application process does not at all feel thick or cakey with this product. It’s also super easy to clean. I just use soap and warm water.

Although I primarily use this product to apply/blend my foundation, you can also use it to highlight & contour.

  
The flat edge side also works really well for perfecting. 

   
 
I am seriously loving this product! Of course I have a demo for you. If you’re interested in seeing how I use the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge click here

New Brow Favorites

Good morning beauties!

Nothing puts a face on point like great brows and a bold lippie. I love trying out new brow products and lippies. Lately I’ve tried out a few new brow products and have settled on the two I’m going to talk about today as my favorites.

Here they are! Brow This Way Gel by Rimmel London and Milani Stay Put Brow Color. Both of these products are inexpensive but amazing and you can find them both at my favorite drug store, Walgreens.

  
I adore using these products together. Here’s my usual step by step

1. Line my brows with a brown pencil by Jordana Cosmetics 

2. Fill in my brows with the Milani Stay Put Brow Color. It’s really thick in consistency and the brush it comes with is nice and sturdy

  
3. Lastly I go over my brows with the Rimmel Brow This Way Product. This product goes on wet which was a bit odd for me initially but when it drys it provides such a nice finish.

  
Together these two products help my brows stay on point. Today’s makeup look is staring these great brow products and this bold Milani Cosmetics lippie in the color Matte Iconic

  
 

  
  
  
  
 

Well, that’s it for now!

XOXO,
