Turquoise & Yellow Makeup

Good morning luvs!

Summer hasn’t quite left us yet so I decided to take advantage of the season earlier this week with a super vibrant turquoise and yellow makeup look. 

The headliners for this look is my Wicked Lippie by NYX in the color Scandalous, and my BH Cosmetics Second Edition 120 Color Eyeshadow Pallet.

Have a great day!




NYX Highlight & Contour Wonder Stick

Happy Friday Beauties!

I am so excited, this Sunday I fly home to Florida for the holidays. My family and I will be there through January 5th!! Of course I haven’t packed a thing yet, but tonight I’m on it.

I had been contemplating my makeup travel situation and knew I didn’t want to bring a whole lot of makeup. So, I started thinking of how I could accomplish that. I have one key eyeshadow palette 4 key lipsticks, some key brushes and of course my foundation. But, I wanted a way to highlight and contour without having to bring an additional palette. So, I headed over to Ulta where I picked up this

I was so excited about this thing! I used it this morning following the handy guide by MakeupShayla on the side of the packaging. Having never used Creme products to highlight and contour this was new for me. 

I applied the products as shown and blended them out. Here are my results. (these photos have not been filtered).



My thoughts, I really like it! It’s easy to use and does a nice job! Excited to have both a highlight and contour in one device! 

Well, that’s it for now.




Hi lovelies!

So….yesterday was all kinds of awesome.  From the voluptuous braid out to the major pop on my lips.  I was totally feeling the entire look.  It was appreciated by a lot of my social family and so I wanted to give you guys the deets on this amazing look!

First, the hair.  Oh, the hair.  This look was achieved using products from the Creme of Nature Argan Oil from Morocco line.  What products exactly? Well…these:

  1. Pure-licious Co-wash
  2. Butter-licious Curls Curl Hydrating Creme
  3. Twirling Custard Curl Styling Gel
  4. 100% Pure Argan Oil

Together these products gave me this super moisturized elongated braid out!

I absolutely adore this complete line of products.  There will definitely be more styles to come using this line.

Now…the beat…specifically the lips.  This lippie got so much love yesterday.  So, here’s what I used

  1. Jordan Blue Devine Pencil (which is really an eye liner but worked perfectly on my lips)
  2. NYX Cosmetics Wicked Lipstick in the color Scandalous


This combination was EVERYTHING!

Well…that’s it for now. Until next time lovelies




Bold In Blue

Hi luvs!

Today I wanted to share the key deets on this look from last week. I was going for something really dark, crisp and dramatic.


There are a few products that helped me accomplish this. First is my go to 2nd Edition 120 color BH Cosmetics eyeshadow pallet. I used the navy and black shadow for my eyes and on the lips is this NYX Wicked lippie in the color Sinful

I absolutely love this color! It’s so bold but beautiful. I paired it with some big silver earrings that offered a really great contrast to the look. 

What’s your favorite bold lippie?

NYX Wicked Lippie

Hello loves!

Tonight I wanted to show you these amazing lippies I got from the NYX Wicked line for Christmas. There are a total of 12 lippies in this line and I got my start with these 4.

From left to right:
Scandalous, Envy, Risqué, Sinful


You can probably already imagine how much fun I’ve had playing with these beauties. Here’s a look at how they each look on me.









Seriously love all of them. I can definitely see myself getting the others. Out of these 4, I think I like Envy best. But…check with me again next week and I might have a new favorite. Lol! NYX did a great job with these. Very vibrant and unique colors. Which one do you like best?

This Happened Today

I have been craving for a trip to Walgreens so I finally make the trip today and what do I find?! Shea Moisture products on sale by one get one free!! Unfortunately for me they were all out of the curl milk. So…I’ll be off to another Walgreens until I find it and can take advantage of this awesome sale.

After being slightly disappointed I made a stop at CVS and picked up this
NYX matte lip gloss.


I’ve been wanting to try it out and I’m glad I did. I have mixed feelings about the color but I love the concept of matte lip gloss. I’ll definitely try more colors. Here are some pics.




NYX Love

I’ve fallen in love! I purchased the NYX Mineral Matte Finishing Powder a couple of weeks ago and I am so glad I did. This stuff is amazing! The finish that it gives my final look is so fresh. I new I had come across something special when even my husband noticed a difference. He loves it too and he prefers a more natural look. Yep! This is definitely a new staple.

Here are some pics from today. Totally fresh faced with no filter. Sported a wash and go today too! It’s been a while since I did one. Totally forgot how much I love them.
