Fall Five pt 4

Hello my favorite beauty obsessed individuals. Today I felt the need to whip out the warning rules of the beauty world. I already have this posted titled “5 places to never store your products,” and since I’m incorporating this into my fall five series on here and my YouTube channel, I thought I will repost it. I have come here to save your life from all things gross. But I am also here with the product life raft to save the day.

Now I know for most of us, storage is scarce these days especially in this economy and the increase cost of housing. Seems like apartments are getting smaller and the rent just keeps hiking up to the sky. It’s like wanting a pair of Sam Edelman leather thigh high boots and only being able to afford a pair of adidas slip ons. Tragic I know, I know. When it comes to small spaces and trying to create proper storage for life, I understand the stuggle. When living in NYC, I witnessed first hand the real estate price of a closet in a basement that is labeled as a spacious garden studio apartment. Yeah right!!

Although space can be an issue, there are just some places beauty products should not live. Wheather you love high end or drug store, no one wants to throw away a product before its expiration date. This is the simple list that I have compiled. I’m sure there are other areas. If you know of any other places you should not store your products, comment below.

Windowsills

Windowsills are a great place to store books, figurines, cats. But not a place for your beauty products, Specifically perfumes. The light can change the scent of a fragrance, and can even cause it to spoil. The sun can also cause foundations to oxidize, melt lipsticks, and even dry out pencil and gel products prematurely.

Bathrooms

In college I always seen girls keep their beauty products on the bathroom sink. I then realized that my mom does it as well. For the love of all things pigmented, do not do this. Your bathroom is constantly in a warm moist (gosh I hate that word, moist eek) breeding ground for bacteria. So now your beloved Charlotte Tilbury micro powder that you just ripped open the box is now becoming a rapid growing petri dish. I know this sounds a bit harsh but these things go on your face and near your eyes so it’s best to be safe.

Fridges

Now there is a few exceptions to this rule. If you need to repair a broken lipstick, make a melted lipstick solid again, cool under eye or face sheet masks that are sealed, or to prolong the life of you nail polish. That’s probably the only reasons to use a fridge for makeup. And even with that, things like lipstick should only be placed in there for a short period of time. Have you ever put a cut onion in the fridge and the next day the whole fridge smells like onion and foods even taste like it too? Yeah this can happen to you makeup as well. Food smells and releases chemicals that can transfer to your beauty products. Not to mention that green pepper that you forgot about in the back of the fridge way out of eyesight, is now growing penicillin and that is not good for anything let alone you $40 Laura Mercier loose setting powder. Yuck unless you like your face to smell like left over Indian Curry

Heaters

Near a heater is horrible for your cream products including lipsticks. Also glass products like face oils and moisturizers will start to lose active ingredients, separate, and begin to smell. What’s the point of forking over money for something that doesn’t work or a holy grail that isn’t performing like it should. We all have that regret drawer and no one wants to add to that pile of disappointment.

Cars

Now I pretty much live out of my car, but I know not to keep my makeup in there. It all started with my favorite Lancôme lipstick in the shade Trendy Mauve that fell out of my purse and ended up in the floor unnoticed by me and by the time I got back into my car that beautiful brand new shade was a goner and I was out $23. Of course I replaced it but not without kicking myself enough to count as my cardio for the week. There was no saving it or my wallet in that tragic incident.

Alright folks that all I have for right now. Now remember, say no to pink eye and cleanliness is next to godliness!! Just kidding, just keep it sanitary so you can stay out of the emergency room. Makeup is suppose to be fun, not turn into the next plague.

Fall Five PT 3

Hello all you cheekbone highlighted honeys!!! Today we are diving into part 3 of my fall five series. This will be on my essential beauty tools. Things you never think to have on hand until you need them and some you couldn’t beat your face without. So these are mine.

Exfoliators- I use all different types of things to exfoliate my skin. I use a face scrub or an exfoliating pad for my face, and a sugar scrub or a dry brush. My favorite for my face is these inexpensive exfoliating pads I get from Ulta or the drugstore (Ulta has more in a pack and a lot cheaper). These allow me to be as abrasive or gentle as I want and I can also use my favorite cleanser because there is no cleanser in them. Exfoliators are great for fall, if your skin can take them, when the weather gets cold and dries out. There is all kinds for different skin types even sensitive.

Spatula- A beauty spatula is great for getting products out of jar containers in a sanitary way. This is especially important to prevent breakouts, and cross contamination. No one wants pink eye people, especially not twice!!!!!

Brush cleaner- This is another key piece in keeping things sanitary. This will also aide in clearing breakouts and preventing further breakouts on a contamination level. I use a spray brush cleaner to spot clean daily and a good deep clean once a week.

Makeup sponges- I love these because they are so versatile. I use the same sponge for foundation, cream bronzer, liquid highlighter, and concealer. They are great for multiple use so that you don’t use multiple brushes and have more to clean at the end of your beauty session. And since they are to be used wet, they are so easy to clean before or after you use it. Win win!!

Clorox wipes- These are a must have for your vanity and if you do freelance. I use these to wipe down my vanity surfaces, mirror, and the handle of my drawers. I even use it to wipe off the little class coaster I use to put my liquid products on. Anything that I touch on a daily basis gets a swipe of a wipe. Ya girl is not in the business of catching a cold or worse.

Well lovelies those are my five beauty tool must haves. I love these all year long and fall is definitely no exception. Thank you all for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe.

Fall Five Pt2

Hello beauty beautifuls. Today I want to do pt.2 of my fall series. This one is products that are really good and are under $5. I love a good product for a great price. I will even buy multiples so that I have them on hand when I run out. Cause you know once the cat is out the bag about an affordable product, poof they’re nowhere to be found. So I have found some that are amazing and can even be dupes for some high end products. Let us dive into the pool of makeup bliss shall we.

Mascara: Jordana best lash extreme (walgreens 3.99). I love this mascara. I try to switch it up with different mascaras but I always seem to go back to this one. I really enjoy high end (lancome Grandious, benefit roller lash) and other drugstore (loreal telescopic) but I can’t seem to let this one go. It doesn’t flake, it last all day, and it doesn’t smudge on my lower lash line. Now I have some very unimpressive eyelashes, but this mascara makes them a contender in the “they aight” lash category.

Blush: Makup Revolution matte blushes (Ulta $5). Makeup revolutionis a UK brand and is now sold at Ulta. This brand has stolen my heart. Their products are affordable and amazing. They are known for their dupes on high end plalettes like the naked palettes. Their blushes are very pigmented. They do have a little bit of powder kickup but that doesn’t bother me because I have to tap some of the pigment off anyway.

Foundation: Wet N Wild Photo Focus foundation (walmart $4.68). This foundation is AMAZING!!! It comes in a good amount of shades. The best part is that they have different undertones as well, and for drugstore that isn’t common. Instead of a pump, it has a spatula which is great to get all of the foundation out of the bottle, but also great to apply a little or a lot without wasting product. Natural semi matte beautiful finish.

Lipstick: Wet N Wild megalast lip color (anywhere $2.67). These are a cult favorite that I haven’t heard anyone talk about in a while. Well these beautiful matte long lasting lipsticks should be praised more. Since liquid lipsticks, people have been throwing traditional lipsticks to the waist side. Not today!! I love these especially in the fall. Creamy and matte without drying out the lips.

Bronzer: NYC Sunny bronzer (anywhere 2.99). Another cult favorite. I have been using this since I got into makeup. I even had this hidden in my book bag in middle school so my mom wouldn’t find it lol. Sorry mom but the lip gloss wasn’t enough #sorrynotsorry. This is a buildable but natural bronzer. Great for no makeup makeup days or to give your bare skin a little life. Gorgeous “slight tan” look.

Concealer: ELF HD lifting concealer. This is a great lightweight concealer to highlight the under eye and the middle of the face. Love this concealer for a natural look. Doesn’t come in a lot of of shades which is horrible but the blendability is great.

Well lovelies those are my 5 under $5 plus 1. I have also attached my youtube video oin this as well. Thank you so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe here and on my youtube channel.

Fall Five Pt. 1

Hello beauties. It has been a while. I have been working on a YouTube channel that have been a very challenging learning experience to say the least. I will be posting here in correlation with my videos so that the info will be on both of my platforms. So now on to the reason that you came. My Fall Five Series.

In this series, I will be giving you all my favorite five of the specific category. These products are stand out for me in some way. Today the category is my skin care must haves. My skincare changes with the season. Since I am combo skin, I like to switch it up so that my skin doesn’t get use to the products and they stop working effectively. Plus with the weather changing, I like some things to be a bit more of a thicker barrier to combat the elements.

First thing on the list is face oils. I love face oils all year round but especially in the fall for that much needed moisture that you lose with the biting wind. Since I’m combo skin I use beauty oils at night. This is a prime time for oils and treatments because, while you are sleep, it allows time for you skin to really drink in the oils.

Second is Cleansing balms. I love these to break up the makeup and dirt on the skin. I don’t like makeup wipes because they don’t remove all of you makeup, it pulls on the skin, and strips the skin. So I prefer cleansing balms, oils, and milks. Now, cleansing milks are generally suggested for the dry skin beauties, but since I do the Korean method of double cleanse (cleansing the skin twice to make sure all dirt and makeup is removed) I love breaking my makeup down with the most moisturizing thing I can find. And since I will be washing my face a second time, I don’t have to worry about breaking out form over doing it.

Next is simple cleansers. I say simple because these cleansers are minimal ingredients, not medicated, and the first ingredient is usually water. I am acne prone so if I have a breakout, I will use different cleansers to help with that. but when my skin is treating me right, I like a cleanser that won’t aggravate my skin’s PH balance. I love a cleanser with not a lot of fuss, doesn’t have a ton of foaming, and leaves the skin feeling clean but not tight.

Next on the docket is lip balms. Now I know this is a staple and a unwritten rule. But I love putting on a generous layer on my lips before bed. I do this because dark vample lips are the life of fall for us beauty junkies, and a you can see every lip detail through it. So a nice smooth conditioned lips is key for a great long lasting color on the lips. And since liquid lips and matte lips are the thing, having a great base will prevent your lips from getting super dry.

And last but not lease is serums. These are great to layer under you moisturizer to give your skin the best benefits for long fresh, healthy  skin.

I have added my video of this episode from my YouTube channel. Well folks thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to like, copmment, and subscribe here and my YouTube channel for more.

2017 Pantone colors


Hello my beautiful beauties. Today I have been doing research on the Pantone season colors. Pantone is the institute that name and choose the popular colors of the season in fashion and beauty. Pantone chooses about 10 shades for the two show seasons, fall/winter and spring/summer. So when you see runway shows or makeup palettes from different companies with similar shades, that is why. So pantone is basically in charge of the “It colors” of the season.

This post will show shadow colors from Coastal Scents as an example of what I feel the color shades of Pantone are. Coastal scents is one of my favorite companies for single shadows that they call hot pots. I love them on me and in my kit. They have great color payoff and are very affordable ($1.98 per hot pot).

So lets start with Spring/Summer. Of course spring and summer are bright whimsical colors. But Pantone does add some grounded colors to tie into the pale light colors of what is known as spring. So I’ll be showing you the closest color I could find to the Pantone shade with the name along with Pantone’s color name and a small description of the color. Ready steady GO!!

Spring/Summer 2017

Pantone names: Niagara, Primrose Yellow, Lapis Blue, Flame, Island Paradise, Pale Dogwood, Greenery, Pink Yarrow, Kale, Hazelnut.

Coastal Scents names: Steel Blue, Bright Yellow, Electric Blue, Bright Tangerine, light slate, Pale Nude, Vibrant Lime Green, Persian Pink, Olive, Nude.

 

Fall/Winter 2017

Pantone names: Grenadine, Tawny Port, Ballet Slipper, Butter Rum, Navy Peony, Neutral Grey, Shaded Spruce, Golden Lime, Marina, Autumn Maple.

Coastal Scents names: Neon Red, Cherry Chocolate, Tea Rose Pink, Kokomo Café, Navy Baby, Ash Grey, Teal Green, Vibrant Lime Green, N/A,  Fools Gold. I couldn’t find a color for Pantone’s Marina. Described as a cool blue almost like a cornflower shade.

Well folks those are the 2017 Pantone colors. Now I do tend to be a rebel and switch it up. Rules are meant to be bent right?? Don’t forget to like comment and subscribe.

5 Places to Never store your products

Hello my favorite beauty obsessed individuals. Today I felt the need to whip out the warning rules of the beauty world. I have been meaning to put this up a longggg time ago but I just kept forgetting. Sorry it took me so long to save your life. But I am here with the product life raft to save the day.

Now I know for most of us, storage is scarce these days especially in this economy and the increase cost of housing.

My Recent Easy Everyday Makeup

Hello beauties. Today I want to tell you about my super easy, everyday, simple makeup look that I have been doing. It’s more or a “no makeup” makeup look. Lately I have been working a ton and different shifts on top of it, so most days I’m out the door heading to work at 5:30 am. So since I am barely conscience that time of day, I still want to look put together but effortless. Now on some days I will just waitress in the evening and that gives me more time to play. But this has been my majority rules look.


So after my skincare is done, I have been opting for tinted moisturizer. My skin has been a little congested lately because I have been a little under the weather so I want to keep everything light and breathable. With that being said, I have been opting for a BB Cream. I have been grabbing my ELF BB cream in beige, Target $6. This is a gorgeous lightweight BB cream that has really good coverage.


Concealer is also from Elf, it is the maximum coverage concealer in tan, Target $3. I like this under my eyes, around my nose, and any places that need spot concealed. They blend perfectly into the skin.


For an occasional color corrector I have been using the Essence no more redness in the shade green to correct around my nose, Ulta $2.99. I put this on under the Elf concealer. This really cancels out redness. The pencil is super creamy and very blendable.


For bronzer I have been using a cream and a powder. I apply the cream first to lightly contour, set my whole face, then using the powder bronze for an all over bronze. The cream bronzer that I love is the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Makeup in Cappuccino, $37.50. This product is really creamy and beautiful on the skin. It’s accually a foundation but I love it to contour with. For powder bronzer, I have been loving the matte bronzer in the It cosmetics CC+ radiance palette, It cosmetics website $38. Blends out and gives the skin a nice sun kissed bronze.


To set my entire face I have gone back to my favorite loose powder. The ELF HD powder in sheer, Target $6. This is the translucent shade. I just found that it comes in two other colors, corrective yellow and a light peach color in soft luminance. So I will definitely be picking those up. This powder is so finely milled and a silky texture which is great for setting the face without adding a layer that can cake up on you throughout the day.


Highlighter is one of the things I enjoy in makeup at the moment. Highlight and brows. For highlighter I have been grabbing my Mac mineralized skin finish in soft and gentle, Mac cosmetics $33. It’s a soft glow and beautiful. Now you know I like a glow that you can see from the international space station, but lately I have been living the glow from within look.


My brows are the same when I do full face of light easy looks. The brows are the windows to the face. Also your brows should be sisters not twins. Sometimes mine are strangers on a train to nowhere but oh well, I still love it. The brow pencil that doesn’t let me down is the NYX microbrow in ash brown, Ulta $9.99. I use this alone or in conjunction with a gel,powder, cream, or wax. It’s my holy grail product. Lately I have been growing out my brows a bit so I can change the shape a little and this pencil helps tremendously. To set the brows I have been using the Essence make me brow in browny brows, Ulta $2.99. This is a fiber brow mascara that allows the brow to look fuller without extra product.


Mascara has been the one I go back to over and over again. I keep at least two in my backup drawer. It’s the Jordana best lash extreme in black, Walgreens $3.49. It doesn’t flake or smear.

So that’s my basic easy daily makeup products I have been using lately. Sticking with this will allow me to use up some much needed products. Thank you so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe.

May Favorites

Hello beautiful beauty lovers. This post is about my May favorites as well as a update/review from my latest new purchases post. Some of those are in my favorites and some I’m still trying out and haven’t formed a full opinion about. Some products take a little longer to figure it out for your skin type and needs.

Lets start with skincare shall we:


TonyMoly brightening bubble foam cleanser. Now I first pick this up for my day time cleanser. Although it is great as a morning cleanser, I recently switched it to my nighttime second cleanse and I have been loving it even more. The foam just really gets in those pores and get all the dirt out that gathered all day and really gets left over makeup. And it smells amazing, very light and clean like fresh laundry (that smell gets me every time loll). I bought this cleanser on a whim because it was on sale at ulta and I’m glad I did. But I wish I bought them all cause I don’t know if they will carry it regularly. #sadpanda

The ordinary Caffeine solutions 5% + EGCG. This is an acid for under the eyes to lessen eye puffiness. It really helps with my puffiness and darkness under the eyes. I apply it AM and PM after I wash and tone my face. Definitely a new addition to my routine.

The Ordinary Niacamide 10% + Zinc 1%. This acid helps with skin aging and the zinc helps with oil control. Adding this to my routine in the AM has really helped with my skin’s oil over production. And it really allows my moisturizer penetrate the skin better in return helps makeup lay on the skin more flawlessly. I apply this Am only after cleanser, toner, and caffeine solution, and before moisturizer. I let it soak into the skin and feel a little tacky before applying moisturizer.

Bliss Drench -N- Quench cream to water moisturizer. This moisturizer smells amazing and soaks into the skin quickly. It almost replaces my Pur Minerals Soak it Up intense hydrating moisturizer, Almost.

Clinic Pore refine solution instant perfector. I use this as a primer on my cheeks to fill in pores. You can use this with makeup or on its own. It blurs the pores like a dream. It has a slight color but it doesn’t show up on the skin.

Base:


Nyx Pro foundation Mixer foundation in white. This is an amazing product. You can mix it with any foundation that is too dark to lighten the shade. It doesn’t change the finish or the coverage of the foundation. You can add this to any liquid product to lighten it. They even have darker shades to darken foundations. There are 6 shades to customize your perfect shade. I will be picking up the other shades when I start building my freelance kit.

Wet -N- Wild photo focus foundation in Desert beige. This is the best foundation I have tried in a while. It is medium to buildable full coverage but yet very lightweight. It is great for everyday. Super easy blend and the applicator makes it so easy to use.

Essence No More Redness Concealer stick in green. This helps combat redness on the skin. I use this around my nose because lately, since introducing acids in to my regimen, My skin around my nose has been a little red. It also helps to keep my foundation stay n my nose throughout the day.

ELF HD concealer in medium is my favorite concealer for my natural slight under eye highlight. So creamy and doesn’t crease badly on me. You wouldn’t know the difference between this and a high end concealer. I find that it is a good dupe for Nars creamy concealer.

It Cosmetics bye bye under eye concealer in medium. I love this to conceal slight darkness under the eye before I apply my foundation. I have the travel size because a little goes a really long way. Creamy but stays in place which is a surprise for a really full coverage concealer. I am impressed.

Lancôme Translucence powder in 400. This is a great lightweight powder with color to set you foundation. It has good pigment but doesn’t add more coverage so you won’t get cakey.

ELF Under eye setting powder. This tiny jar of powder is a big deal. It is a translucent powder with a light hint of pink and a little glow properties to it. Really sets the under eye so no worries on creasing.

Bronzer and highlighter:


The Balm cosmetics Betty loumanizer. This is the brozer of the manizer sisters (Mary loumanizeris the highlighter and Cindy loumanizer is the blush). This bronzer gives the perfect golden bronze glow. Just fresh of the beach bake look, which is kinda my thang.

It Cosmetics CC+ radiance palette. I love each powder in this palette. But I have been really loving and abusing the matte bronzer. It has a beautiful bronze and contour on the skin. I put this on first and then finish with the Betty loumanizer for the perfect easy summer look.

Wet -N- Wild Megaglow Highlighting powder in the shade precious petals. I put this highlighter everywhere because it is so beautiful. I hunted this one and the other one in the shade crown my canopy. I have two of each of these because they were limited edition. They were such a hit they are now a new item and you can find them everywhere. This is the only backup highlighter that I have cause this is THE ONE!!

Brows:


Essence brow gel in the browny brows and Nyx brow gel in brunette. These two are my favorite and only brow gels I use. The Essence has fibers in it so you can use in alone or with other brow products. Apparently everyone else at the ultas I go to knows how great it is, cause they are hard to get. So when the Essence is sold out I reach for the Nyx brow gel. It is just as amazing and I can’t live without either one of those.

Billion Dollar Brows eyebrow duo pencil. This is a very versatile product. I use the darker side to carve out my brows and the lighter side to highlight the inner corners of my eyes and in my waterline. You can also use this to conceal.

Lashes:


Pur cosmetics big lash mascara in black. I use this alone or with my holy grail mascara, Jordana best lash extreme. This mascara is great for the upper lashes. It separates and gives volume at the same time. Top it with the jordana mascara, and you have a full jet black set of lashes.

Ebay bottom lashes. Now these are  bit much for bottom lashes, but I love them for a natural easy top lash. They are whispie and easy to apply/. They come 10 pairs in a pack and I paid less than $3 for them.

Other reviews:


The Ordinary Vitamin C suspension 23% HA spheres 2%. This is great for dark spots. It completely cleared my acne scars that I had on my cheeks. This is the strongest Vitamin C that you can buy over the counter. Since it is a very strong Vitamin C, it is gritty which bothers me. It also really tingles on the skin which I eventually got use to and goes away once you add moisturizer. It also claims to helps the skin glow. I did notice some slight glowage. I only use this while I have a blemish to correct it and about twice a week to keep my freckles from getting too dark or getting more.

The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% concentration. Helps with visible texture. This is to be used no more than 3 times a week. Since I don’t use it everyday it takes a little longer to notice a difference. It took me a while to find the best way to use this. I found, for me, using it at night alone and no moisturizer seems to work best. This product stinks, like a subtle skunk smell, so I use it at night and change my pillow case the next day. Even adding moisturizer in the morning wasn’t getting rid of the smell. It’s very subtle so only you can smell it, at first I thought my perfume went bad loll.

TonyMoly sheet masks. I love these and use them all the time. It is concentrated serum in a sheet mask. It’s great for an at home pamper sesh. I use these about once a week to really kick start my skin. I ran out before I had the chance to take a pic. Oops

Well folks that is all of the things I have been loving lately. Now some things that are my holy grail products are still my favorites, I just feel like I talk about them all the time. Like you know all the feels I have for the NYX micro brow. I could talk about that bad boy all day. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe.
