Makeup Monday Series #1

Hello Y’all,

Decide to come up with this series, every monday I will show you guys which products I will be using for the makeup I will be rocking that day. Normally I do not wear make up on weekdays, but I guess on mondays I’m worth it, Hah! Do not expect to always see all these products, sometimes it will be more than this other times less, other times just a lotion (YEP), it will depend on what i decide to do with my face, just stay tuned! Have a great week, y’all.

Eyebrow Routine Tools

Eyebrow Routine Tools

Hello,

This is a topic that I wanted to cover for so long. Eyebrows Routine is one of most requested topics, I thought I had to divide it by parts, for now we are going to talk only about the tools. This is my first post about brows, but I will have other posts talking about products for different skin tones, different products to fill brows, brows shape and tutorials on how to do it. I’ve come from a long road when it comes to eyebrows, and right now, these are the products that work for me,  these tools are everything that I use to achieve the brows I have on my makeup looks.

  1. NYX Brow Pencil – Shade Dark Brown
  2. NYX Concealer – Shade Tan
  3. Sigma Flat Definer Brush
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hill Dip Brow Pomade
  5. Coastal Scent Angled Brush
  6. Real Techniques Shading Brush

I know that for many it is not necessary all of that, but as I said this is what works for me. We all have different features and our brows are not an exception. For some women a pencil is enough, but in my case, all I do is 1. I start off with the pencil brushing the eyebrows’  hair and draw the shape of the brow 2. then I apply  the pomade with the angled brush only in the areas that I have no hair, in order to have a darker finish 3. take the concealer and define the edges, cleaning around the brow 4. although, the brows are sharpen, I still need to blend the concealer around it, then I use the Real Technique brush.

If you are still trying to figure out how to do the brows just be patient because I’m going to have  a pictorial on this, hope you find this information helpful.

Thanks,

Xoxo

Current Favorite Products

Current Favorite Products

Hello There,

So, this is my first current favorite products, I couldn’t be more excited to show you what I am currently using the most, why I use these products and just for the record, some are the ones that help me have all these flawless looks. Read below for more information.

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade.  I started using it only one week ago, and I have no regrets. Actually, this color isn’t the one for me, this is too dark and I was pretty sure of it when I bought it. This color is the Ebony I think the one that would be perfect according to my skin tone is the Chocolate but they were out of it, so i just decided to go with this one anyway because it covers perfectly my brows flaws, plus, it is waterproof and it does not crease or comes out for any reason. Available Here.

2. MAC LIPSTICKS (1.Flat Out Faboulous; 2. Relentlessly Red; 3. Fast Play) I use to say that every single lipstick that fits me, will fit any other skin tone, because I am dark, and girls with dark complexion struggle to find the perfect lipstick… but these here here fit me so well and I think everyone should try it. The first two are matte and the last one, this nude, is amplified. Check them here.

3. Coastal Scents Brushes These are AMAZING, it comes on a set of 22 pieces but I am drunk in love with these two. No name on the brushes, sorry. The thiner one I use to smudge the concealer around my brows and the bigger I use to set the loose powder under my eyes. The complete set costs about $30, and the quality is amazing, see the complete set here. 4. MAC Glitter “Holiday Collection” It came on a set as well, set of 5, but it is my favorite. It just shines so bright I cant get over it. Unfortunately, it discontinued but I think you can find on Amazon. Ahhm, this is the glitter that I also used on Back To School Makeup Look.

5. MAC BLUSH “Love Thing” This is my second time buying it, I just love love love love love it. Nothing much to say. Highly recommend. Check here. 6. Davidoff CoolWater This colone has been my favorite since forever, I just cant get enough! I use since I am 15 and I stopped using for I while and I am using it back again Since this January and my 50 ml are almost at the end. Fresh, airy, cool it feels like a breeze.

Thanks for passing by,

Valentine’s Day Makeup Look #2

Valentine's Day Makeup Look #2

Hi Lovers,

For the second Valentine’s Day Makeup Look, I decided to go “all pink everything”. Pink is girly, romantic and I think would be perfect for any occasion of the day, either day or night, because is not that bold.

The Lipstick is from Mac, and I am loving it, I think I’ve found the perfect pink lipstick for my skin tone, and that matches perfectly with any skin-tone because of its consistency and brightness.
