Mini Haul

Mini Haul

Hello everyone, I hope all is well. I know a haul right before Christmas might seem mad… but when shopping for others I get so side tracked.

Well without too much rambling. I went to three stores CVS, Sephora (of course) and Lush.
Because I’m an addict and need professional help. #shopperanom

From CVS I picked up:
The Creme Shop Snowman Sheet Mask $2.99
Elf angled liner brush $5.00
Invisibobble Hair ties $7.00

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Sephora:
The Tarte Scrub Clean kit (just because I’m a sucker for minis) $12.00

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

And Lush:
Magic Wand $8.95

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Like I said this was a super mini haul!

Now to the main event… My eye makeup:

-Taking Mac’s shade Cork in my crease.
-Continuing in my crease I used Mac’s Black Berry. (Remember to blend, blend, and blend.)
-Back to the Too Face palette I used Sugared Raisin all over the lid.
-Using Satellite Dreams from Mac in the outer corner, I blend it towards the middle of my lid.
– Switching over to the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself palette I take the highlight shade in the middle and place it on the middle of my lid and blend it out. As well as on my eyebrow and the inner corner of my eye.
-Taking Lorac Liquid Liner to make my wing.
-Finally I added a few coats of Essence Lash Princess after using an eyelash curler.

All Things Eyebrows!

All Things Eyebrows!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. It was time to wax/shape my eyebrows so, I figured, ummm hey it’s the perfect time to do a blog post about them.

We live in a society where eyebrows are of super importance. (I pride myself on my bushes!) I don’t know who has and who has not read my “About Me” post (Shameless Plug,) but I’m a trained cosmetologist. I do my own brows at home!

So, why not do a tutorial on how I get these bad boys: (System I Use)

IMG_3197

First- I clean the area with Pre Hon to remove all the dirt and oils from my skin.

Second- I smooth the wax down, then use cotton strips to rip off the hair!

Third- I then brush the hairs up and cut them to further shape the brows.

Forth and final – I wipe my brows with cooling gel.

This is how I wax and shape them!IMG_3198

Filling them in is a different story:

I trace each brow with the elf eyebrow kit  (I really love this kit,) then with a small angled brush I go back in and fill them in.IMG_3199

Using a spooly, I brush through the brows making them even and less cakey.IMG_3200

Then I use the Anastasia brow gel to set the brows.IMG_3201

Sculpting out the eyebrows is the final step, I use benefits boing concealer and blend it out with a brush. IMG_3202

Skin Care Obsessed

Skin Care Obsessed

Hey everyone, I hope you guys are doing well! So, like the title says I’ve been skin care obsessed… well face mask obsessed. A little back story (which I have explained before) I’ve suffered from serious acne for a long time and my skin has FINALLY (at 23) started to give me a break!

Today, Im going to share my favorite DIY face mask and a little review on the E.L.F. Pore refining brush and mask tool!  mask1maks3

I’m a detox freak! Anything with clay I’m hooked so, when I saw one of my favorite youtubers use the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay I freaked out! I knew I had to try it. So, I used one tbs of the clay powder and 2 tbs of distilled water. And the skin game was changed forever! It helps with raw break outs as well as helping keep away new skin impurities.

P.S. Please make sure you have distilled water! I use filtered warm water. Trust me you do not need more junk on your skin. mask2

Now, onto the new E.L.F. brush- I’m a use your hands for everything type of girl. Thats not always good because your hands have a lot of bacteria on them. The top of the brush is a tool to apply a mask. It’s taking a little bit to get used to applying small amounts slowly with the tool and not my fingers. I do enjoy the fact that it’s more cleanly for my face. Also, the bottom is a pore refining brush and I love it! It really does get into my pores and cleans out all the gunk. And hey for $5 bucks I think it’s totally worth it! maks5
