Fav nudes

Here’s a list of my Favorite Nude Lippies

Lip liners:

Mac Lip pencil in shade Spice
Mac Lip pencil in shade StripDown
NYX lip pencil in shade Nude Suede Shoes (very long lasting)

Lip Sticks or Lip Stains:

Mac lipstick in shade Angel
NYX liquid lipstick Lingerie  in shade Baby doll
Tarteist lip stain in shade Birthday Suit
NYX Liquid lipstick in shade Stockholm
Mac lipstick in shade Cream  Cup

The darker outline and lighter on the inside of the lip is super nice and makes lips appear a little plumpier.

I love any of these difference combos and I always mix to have different looks.

Face routine – BRIDES

Hello beauties!

Since I get a lot concerns from brides and anyone in a bridal party for that matter. I decided I was going to give my best pre-wedding face routine I have.

For one, do not get a facial within the week or 2 prior to your big day. You’ll most probably break out. A facial is meant to deeply cleanse the skin therefore all impurities tend to come out within that week or next following your facial.

Ingredients you’ll be needing:

  1. Baking soda
  2. Coconut oil
  3. Grounded coffee
  4. Night-time Moisturizer

The week of your wedding every night I recommend cleansing with a natural and underestimated product… baking soda. Take a tablespoon of baking soda in a small cup and add a bit of water, enough to turn it into a paste. Remove all makeup with either a wipe or a cloth and regular face cleanser. Rinse your face, then slowly and very gently massage the baking soda all over for about a minute, especially around the nose area. Rinse well and pat dry with a towel. Use your favorite night time moisturizer.

The night before the big day, I recommend the following. Take 2 tablespoons of raw organic coconut oil with a teaspoon of ground coffee, mix well. Remove all makeup once again, cleanse face with your favorite cleanser. Pat dry. With clean fingers, work the coconut oil and coffee bean mix onto your skin using circular motion. Again slowly and very gently massage all over for a good minute or so. You can even sit and enjoy some relaxing music. Rinse with help of a cloth. It’s ok if you have a bit of an oily residue, do not remove it. Let that oily residue seep into your skin overnight for extra moisture and hydration. 

If you are worried about oily skin, don’t worry!!

In the morning just rinse your face very well and that’s it! Don’t need to put anything else. 

Just remember oily skin is easier to work with than having dry, patchy skin. Trust me!!

That’s it, hope you enjoy this.

Nars creamy vs fitMe dupe?

Hello!!

I decided to put this to the “test”. I’m a HUGE fan of the Nars radiant creamy concealer in shade Vanilla. So I figured let me try out for real to see if it’s really a dupe.

I got the lightest shade for the FitMe concealer in #10

I compared both on my hand and right there I noticed the color was wayyy off. Maybelline fit me was darker, yellow undertone and felt like a lighter formula.

Nars is light, peachy undertone and very thick and coveragey.

So for me it was a total miss and almost disappointing from all the things I heard.

THUMBS DOWN. NOT A DUPE!

Let me know what else you’d like for me to test.

2015 most used products

Hello girlies!!

Here are the most used and favorite products of 2015. A little late but still going strong this new year..

IMG_4906

Tarte: Eyeshadow palette Tartelette. Beautiful matte neutral shades, such a great velvety texture and smooth finish perfect for any look.

Tarter: Bronzer in Park Ave Princess. I used this as blush. I loved the ever so slightly shine and hint of peach perfect with a red lip.

Benefit: Eyeshadow base Stay don’t stray in light-medium. Leaves a hint of color evening out the lid and holds the eyeshadow in place.

NYX: Eye pencil in 608 Cottage Cheese. Creamy satin finish all over the lid paired with a cat eye is a perfect look for any occasion.

Bobbi Brown: Longwear gel liner in black ink, smudges perfectly or leaves a perfect cat eye. Love this!

And of course cannot function without a coffee or a perfect hot chocolate for this warm weather and long days ;P

Till next time 🙂
