What I Got For Christmas!

Sunday, December 25, 2016

        Hello Dolls!!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!! I can't believe today was Christmas! Seems like yesterday I was still wearing shorts about to get ready for Halloween. This year has gone by in a blink of an eye. With my Grampie's passing this past June it's been a really hard holiday season. Nothing seems right without him here and it's made me sad. But I know he is watching over us and smiling. 
        I decided to share with you some gifts I got this year! The only big thing I asked for this year was an Ikea dresser. I usually ask for a purse or shoes that are designer but I really want to change my room around and finally be proud of it. My theme is white, gold, and pink! I also got the usual refills on beauty products including a few new ones like the Peach Palette from Too Faced! So excited about that and the Mariah Carey MAC collection! So amazing! I got a few clothing pieces from when I went to the outlets with my family! I knew alot of what I was getting already but I did have a few surprises here and there!
        I hope everyone's holiday was amazing!!! Have a healthy and happy new year!!!! 

Lots of love,

Harley Quinn Zombie Pop Art Makeup Tutorial

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Hello Loves,

Today I have something a little different for you!!!!!! I'm 99.9% positive that this is my first Halloween makeup tutorial!!! I can't believe I've been on Youtube for 6 years and haven't done this yet! I've been loving all the Harley Quinn makeup looks on YouTube and I finally decided to do one myself! But with a twist of course! A Zombie twist!!!! I really wanted to do a pop art zombie look and a Harley Quinn look so I decided to blend them together! I am so happy how this turned out! I'm so very proud of myself for finishing this because as you watch it I stopped and redid my blue eye. I was going to quit right there and then but I continued on with the tutorial! I really hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think! Also I changed my background! I made it myself! I think I'm going to keep it for a few videos! I'm trying to rebrand myself a little bit as you may or may not notice. Just because I've been here for so long...it's time for a few changes! 

ps- yes...I did the N backwards...I didn't notice till I looked at the pictures...

Kylie Lip Kit Mini Mattes Review!

Monday, September 19, 2016

Hello loves,

          If you have been following me for a while then you would know how much I love the Kardashian/Jenners. I love their style, makeup, and how confident they are. The youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, has come out with her own line of makeup. First she just sold liquid matte lipsticks and now it has expanded to eyeshadows, eyeliner, cream shadows, metallic liquid lipsticks and glosses! It is growing so fast and selling out even faster! 
         During the first stock of her birthday collection I wasn't so successful in getting anything. I was on the website for so long before it opened and still didn't get anything!!!! About a week later she had a restock! I wasn't expecting anything especially what had happened the first time. But I tried anyway because I knew I wanted the mini mattes!!! My fairy godmother must have been on my shoulders because I got the mini mattes! I was so happy since the only color I had was Poise K (picture below! I also included that one since it was the only other color I had). I really loved how Poise K looked on me and was excited to see how the others would too. Since I was so skeptical about the other colors, constantly going on Instagram to see what the colors would look like on me, I bowed out and just never gave in to buy a new color. I knew I would like Poise K because I love pink lipsticks. It was the brown colors that I was worried about the most. Turns out I LOVE the brown colors on me!!!! I couldn't tell you which is my favorite because I love them all!
         If you are worried that they are so small DONT! They provide alot of applications! I've already used Dolce K about 7 or 8 times and I still have alot! I will keep you updated! Other than that this stay on for a while! I did notice when wearing Dolce K out with my friends this weekend that it started to peal away a little but I didn't didn't apply lipliner so I wonder if it would make a difference? I was talking ton, eating and drinking, and sweating so alot of going on because of that. I wiped away what I could with a tissue (don't wet it because it wont come off!) and reapplied it about 3 times during the night. Not a total problem I just don't want to be embarrassed with half my lipstick on!

{TIP} Having trouble taking off your liquid lipsticks?? Use coconut oil to take it off!!!!

First off, Kristen (my Mom's name is Kristin with an I), Loved this because I felt like it has a brown undertone. It's a bright red but it's toned down in a way. More natural than Mary Jo K and more toned down than 22. I would wear more of a brown smokey eye with this liquid lip. 

         My first Kylie Lip Kit! I love this color because it's not so much "in your face" pink. It's a nice neutral pink that goes well with a lot of different makeup looks.

(Candy K)
               This pinky nude is great with smokey makeup. I thought I wasn't going to like this because I'm not used to nude colors for lips but it's a great everyday color that I know I was be using up right away!!!!

(I believe this is Exposed over something)
        Okay, so I believe this is exposed but I know I blended this color with another one from MAC! But this color is pretty accurate! I didn't think I was going to like this after I swatched it because it was more on the orange side. But I think it's more of an orange nude color once it dries. Like this but the makeup needs to be natural. Nothing too crazy because I'm afraid it will look too overdone. 

PS - I'm selling this and more chokers on etsy!!! Check it out!!! Good Prices! $2-$15

(Leo {limited edition you can still buy it HERE!})
          Leo, oh Leo.....When I tried it on in the video it was so patchy!!! Lighter in one area, darker in the other. I hated it! I loved the color but the formula I thought was horrible! Well, I tried it again because it deserved a second chance and I ended up liking it. You need to apply it a few times and try to make the applications as smooth as possible to get an even tone. 

           Ahhh....Dolce Dolce Dolce! I'm obsessed with this color! Get color for day and at night when going out with friends! I got so many compliments from wearing this color! I was worried at first because I'm not used to brown colors like this. It's so 90s! But once I tried it on I was so happy!!! Goes great with a lot of makeup looks tooo!!!

            Koko K is a nude pink. My friend Erica has this one and she is loves with it! I love this one too because I think it looks really great with green eyes! Actually it would look good with any colored eyes! Great light pink color!!

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation - First Impression

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Hello Loves,

I decided to try a new foundation today! Not only is it only $12 but I actually like it! I usually don't LOVE drugstore foundations. They somehow always make me break out or don't work like how I want them to. I'm a big believe of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" but I'm trying to expand my makeup collection since it's been awhile since I've used my makeup. Out with the old and in with the new!! 

The L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation is a liquid foundation that helps "brighten" your skin so it is luminous. There is 40% pure water so your skin will be hydrated all day. Also antioxidants vitamins C and E to help improve clarity and your skin tone. 

I would suggest this foundation to my friends who have dry skin that want hydration! If you have oily skin I would probably say this foundation is a no-go for you. 

When applying the foundation I used a flat buffer foundation brush that was more condense and helps gives the "airbrushed" glow. It's one of my favorite ways to apply foundation! 

After having the foundation on for the whole day I found that it was hard to not want to touch my face. I felt that I could still feel the foundation on my face which I don't like but it didn't bother me too much. I feel like I would have to watch out for people's clothes if I was to go to hug them because I would be too afraid that I'd get makeup on their clothes. But that is how most foundations are and since this one is very liquidity it only makes sense that it will move around on the face throughout the day. With that, I do think it is pretty lightweight! Not cakey! 

That is all I have to say about the Lumi foundation! Great for the price! I love that I didn't have to spend $50 for my foundation this time around! I'd give it a 4 out of 5 stars! 

Have you tried the Lumi Foundation! How did you like it? Comment below!
