BB Cream Or Foundation?

 

It seems that most people use foundation these days, but I personally have always been a BB cream girl. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I really REALLY want to branch out and be a part of the foundation crew, but my skin is UBER sensitive. I could literally apply a foundation at 8AM and be breaking out by the end of the day. I don’t know what it is, but the heavy cream products clog my pores up so easily! I have tried a few different foundations such as Smashbox studioskin and the LOreal True match (which at the time, I thought would work because so many people said it’s great) but neither of these seemed to work with my skin. Honestly, I have never tried a foundation that didn’t irritate my skin and this really halted my testing them out. I can’t be spending my whole paycheck on foundations, even though I do really want to find one that works! I like the idea of foundation because sometimes I want a full glam look and I want my foundation to cover EVERYthing. Anyways, my ride or die product is the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream! I have worn this pretty much everyday for years now and it never breaks me out. The coverage is pretty light and the product goes on quickly, so it is great for everyday use. I thank God that my skin is pretty much always clear because I can get away with wearing this BB cream, even when I do glam looks. One con to the BB Cream team is that if I am breaking out, the world will have to see it for a while, cause me trying to put a full coverage foundation on will more likely than not cause more break outs!

So, are you the BB cream or Foundation type?

The best shower products for soft beautiful skin

 

 

These products are some of my favorite things to keep my skin soft and healthy! if your’e looking to upgrade your shower routine or some new products, then here you are!

Bath beads or epsom salt,

At the moment I have bath beads. I love things like epsom salt and bath beads because in a warm bath, the skin soaks up all of the yummy ingredients that help make the skin softer.

Exfoliant scrub

I love a nice scrub in the shower because it really helps get the dead skin off of the body. Getting dead skin off of the body not only keeps the skin soft, but also helps to prevent the pores from getting clogged.

Bath bombs

Bath bombs of any kind are always a fun treat! These are similar to bath beads and some are actually made to help moisturize the skin, calm, energize, etc. I particularly like bath bombs because they can smell so lovely and the ones from Lush Fizz up and color the tub (pretty fun!).

Lotion

This is a final step technically for after you shower (unless you have the in shower lotion), but I still consider this part of the shower routine because I always apply it right after my shower. I believe lotion plays a vital role in keeping the skin moisturized and helps prevent premature aging.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post and have a great rest of your evening!

Marc Jacobs Coconut setting spray

 

You may or may not know that Marc Jacobs recently came out with a whole line of coconut scented products annnnnd I may or may not have gotten my hands on the setting spray?

Okay! I really did get it! I received the setting spray as a birthday gift from my wonderful boyfriend!

First off, let me tell you that I love the smell, but you may not. So, I do recommend you go into your local Sephora and get yourself a sniff of this product so that you can form your own opinion there. Other than that, the spray is great, no questions asked!
The spray does have a more dewy finish (love). I have combination skin and this spay works beautifully for me!

The spray itself has a VERY fine mist (sometimes I open my eyes and realize that I have drenched myself, without trying!) the mist is just so light, that I almost can’t feel how much I apply. I personally think the light mist is a great thing; I have learned that a little bit can go a long way! Please tell me who doesn’t love that?

Overall, I love this product and I am dying to try the rest of the products in this line!

A beautiful lip combo

First of all, I recently received these products free for reviewing purposes from Influenster! Second of all, this is a wonderful lip combo! What am I talking about you ask?…

I got the NEW Maybelline Shine Compulsion Lipstick in the shade Magenta Affair along with the Color Sensational lip liner in the shade 150 Brick Red! These two products were a match made in heaven, I swear. The lipstick has to be one of the best that I have ever tried from Maybelline, as it does not get dry or crusty on the lips. I wore this for quite a few hours!

I will say that I did have to reapply a bit of the lipstick because I was drinking lots of water, but that does not bother me at all. Overall these two products, together make a beautiful lip combo and I recommend you try them out!

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?

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!
