MAC Made with love
This is my go- to lipstick. If I am not doing my eyes, and I am going for a quick look, this is the one I use since it is such a beautiful shade of coral.  This lipstick was part of the Color Craft collection and  it was a limited edition though, sorry guys!


MAC Fun and games
This blush came with the collaboration of MAC and Hello Kitty. I really love this one! It is a peachy slightly shimmery blush. It is not super pigmented so I need to pack it on but when it shows, it is a dream!
I love to pair this blush with Made with Love.

MAC Smoke and Mirrors e/s
I have been using Maybelline define a brow  pencil to fill in my brows and I still love it but I one day I decided to try a shadow instead and I used the shadow called Smoke and Mirrors (medium brown in the palette) from the MAC Smoke and Mirrors palette. I am liking a lot so far so now depending on my mood I use either the Maybelline pencil or this shadow or both!


Bobbi Brown concealer
I like this one to get that clean and defined brow look! I also love how my highlight  color pops even more.

Ardell Wispies
 Since I decided to cut my lashes and make them more into accents I’ve been loving it!
I’m sure you guys have noticed that I have been using these a lot. I really like how natural they look.
I think lashes are very important since they complete the eye make up. My lashes get lost as soon as I apply my upper eye liner  so using false lashes on my outer corners is something that  I have been enjoying.

 Clinique Stay Matte powder
I always keep coming back to this one. This powder does not break me out and it's really good to use for toch ups. This time I got a shade called invisible and it's supposed to work on all skin tones. I am loving it!

Well these are my faves!
Thanks for reading and commenting loves :-)

Eyebrow definition: quick tip!


Hello lovelies :-)
Today I want to share a quick tip for eye brows!
This is something that I've known for a while
but for some reason did not try. 
I was watching a tutorial last night on YT and this girl was doing it so I wanted to try it finally.

I think most of us are obsessed with eyebrows. I know I am,.. lately
I used to wax them before because eye brows was not my thing.
Getting them waxed though was always a hit or miss thing since some people
would not do them the way I liked.
It is also quite expensive, so one day I decided to wax them for the last time and maintain them myself. 
It's was hard at first but I learned .
I've been loving really defined eyebrows and the tip that I am going to share is
to help your eye brows look more defined.

I haven't been using my bobbi brown concealer since I didnt like it. 
It's been sitting in my traincase so today I decided to use it for this.

I took an angled brush, dip it inside de concealer and got a tiny amount on the bristles. 
With this concealer, a little bit goes a long way!
Then I started basically drawing a line starting from the inside of the brow all the way to the tail.
I did the same on top of the brow as well and then I blended the lines.
I really liked the result!
I got a very clean, defined brow.
This also helped my highlight to pop even more!
Prior of this, I had my brows filled in.

I'm sure some of you will know about this, but I am posting anyways just in case someone doesn't know, 
or maybe knows, but haven't been motivated to do it :)

The creamy Bobbi Brown concealer really worked like a dream to do this.

Hope this helps someone!
Have a great Tuesday :-)


Urban Decay finally heard us!



I found out yesterday through  Pursebuzz on you tube that Urban Decay
finally heard us and there is a primer potion in a tube!

They call it a professional size and it comes with .85 oz of product. 
Unfortunately it is a limited edition! I know! Booooo!!!!
It should be permanent, but there is a buzz going that for the fall / winter the'll have the tube available  in a smaller size.
I think I will be buying this baby soon!

You can find this at Sephora and it retails for $29
If you are an UDPP lover
then run to get yours before it's all gone :D

Peachy Neutral

Hi guys!
Ok, so let me start saying that this is the kind of make up look that looks great in person but it does not translate well in camera :(
I really tried to get good pics but this is the best I could do. 
I wanted to do something peachy and neutral.
I grabbed one of my Wet and Wild palettes as well as
Naked pigment since is one of my favorites!

Hope you guys like it!

Review: Clean and Clear Dual moisturizer





Hello guys!
Today I come with a quick review from one of the Clean & Clear brand products.
Around 2 weeks ago, I ran out of my Loccitane moisturizer. Even though I love it, it's quite pricey. 
I've been looking for a cheaper alternative so I can alternate.

I went to Walgreens and browse all the different moisturizers. I have oily skin, and it is difficult to find a good moisturizer that is not going to make me feel even more greasy.

After browsing for a bit I noticed  the Dual Action moisturizer from Clean & Clear.
It caught my attention that it was a  moisturizer and it had  acne medication to help treat blemishes as well.

This is the drescription on the website:
"Moisturizer combines oil-free moisture with a proven acne-fighting ingredient. It can help to moisturize dry skin while treating and helping to prevent breakouts. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth."

Even though I never have luck with drugstore acne products, because they end up irritating my skin,
  I decided  to give it a try.
So far, I do like a lot!

It  is oil free and it has a 5% of Salicylic Acid and you can tell when you apply it.
You feel like a tingling sensation but it's not bad at all and it goes withing a minute.
I like that my face feels smooth and not greasy.It is a very light weight formula.
My skin absorbs this moisturizer really quick too.
I still want to get my Loccitane moisturizer so I can alternate because I have seen some minimal dry spots, mostly on my chin area.
I have been using this for 3 1/2 weeks with good results.
I am still having little break outs but I think it is because I was using a powder that it was not right for me. I stopped using the powder so now I am just waiting to see what happens.  I do have to say that even though I have been breaking out, I've noticed that the acne heals faster.
I want to add that I am using the New Neutrogena Pink grapefruit cleanser so maybe a combination of using this cleanser and the moisturizer is what is helping my acne heal faster.

The Clean & Clear Dual moisturizer costs: $6.49 for 4 oz
If you have oily-acne prone skin and want a good cheaper moisturizer alternative give it a try!
See ya lovelies <3

MAC Dare To Wear FOTD

Hello guys!
This is the look I wore today to go singing.
I used one of the shadows from the MAC Dare to Wear collection.
This one is all about bright and fun colors!
I first saw Winkle e/s on a FOTD from Shadowy Lady and I fell in love with the color.
When I found out that MAC was going to repromote this color I got really excited!

I bought it around 2 weeks ago and I am loving this shadow to pieces ;-)
It is a gorgeous shade of blue. Bright, but wearable at the same time.
It is a Satin finish and very pigmented, a dream to work with!
Easy to blend.
I highly recommend this color as I think that it is pretty unique.
For the lips, I picked a lipstick that is quite hard/ tricky to pull off.
I'm talking about MAC Siss /ls.
It is a beige nude and I love it a lot.
At first, I applied it on it's own but I didn't dare to wear it! lol
So I added on top of it  a light layer of MAC Ravishing l/s
It looks quite nude still and I look very different but I liked the result.
Hope you guys enjoy this look!
Lighting was a little crazy and It was windy so excused the little messy hairs :D
Let me know what you think :)

Romping and Styling

Hi guys!
Happy Friday :D
I'm looking forward to this one so bad! 
Today I picked up some colors that I just forgot all about them. 
I'm sure this is something that happens to all of us.
This time, was Romping and Styling from MAC's HK collection
These 2 shadows are so pretty in my opinion, and they go so well together!
I haven't been using lipglasses this summer since it's too hot but today, I knew I was going to be in the mall with some good AC so I did!




This came a little washed out.. oh well... :D

Glamour Doll and Urban decay

Hi guys!
How's your Wednesday going?
Today I was going to do some errands so I wanted to do an easy, simple, but with some fun to it make up!
A neutral look with some pop of color on the lower lashline is my go to make up when
I want to have some color.
I love to pick up my Urban Decay Deluxe palette to do neutral looks.
The shadows are so shimmery and beautiful that they add something special.
Shag is a gorgeous peachy nude shadow and I love to use it as an all over lid color. I think it gives the prettiest glow to the eyes!
I also picked up my Glamour Doll Immature e/s to use on the bottom lashline and it is such a beautiful color,
an aqua shade, very mermaid looking.
I hope you guys enjoy this look and have a great day/ night!

88 Shimmer palette


Hi guys!
Today I wanted to use my 88 shimmer palette since I have neglected it for quite some time!
I kind of broke one rule today but it's ok hehe
All of my colors are shimmery, even the highlight :D
I was going out to a 100  weather but I still wanted to put some make up on since I was going to meet my hubby for lunch so I did this shimmery look using again pastel shades in green- pink- gold

I also skipped the upper liner, some times I like to do this because when I put my mascara I can see my lashes!
I really liked it because I think these colors make me look fresh
Hope you guys like this one ;-)

Glamour Doll Eyes Review



As I mentioned in another post, I was sent 6 shadows to do a review.
The owner Vee is very sweet and our communication through email was great!
Shipping was fast and got my items in great condition.
Along with the shadows I recieved a mini look book which comes with pictures of different make up looks. Also, I got a sticker from the company as well as a business card.
After using these shadows, these are my thoughts!




Pros
·         *Shadows are very pigmented! Like  with any other loose shadow, you preferably need to use a mixing medium in order for the colors to be vibrant. I used MAC Fix +

·       *  Shadows are very fine milled and soft, therefore easy to blend! The only color that gave me some trouble with blending was Ahoy Sailor. This shade has a matte finish.

·         *Good staying power.  Please have in mind that this is going to depend on what primer you use. I used Urban Decay Primer potion.

*Packaging is nice and simple. It has a sticker with the company’s logo and the name of the shadow on the lid. I actually prefer this to have the name written in the bottom.

*Variety of colors.

Cons
*Fall out, but this is very typical when talking about loose shadows. I do have to say that I experienced very little fall out comparing these shadows to the MAC mineralize duos.

*No sifters

Overall I really loved these shadows and I will buy from Glamour Doll!
From the six colors I received my faves are:

Tattoed
 Ahoy Sailor
 Lovers Lane

Quick and easy Smokey eye with drugstore make up!

I've been MIA too long! 
My dad came to visit me, so I stayed in Orlando for a whole week!
I had a great time with him and he had the chance to have some quality time with his grandson :D

This is what I wore to go see him the first day ;-)
I picked up my Wet and Wild Color Icon palette.
I think this palette is great for the price. Colors are very pigmented!
I even would dare to say that there is a good dupe for MAC Smoke and Diamonds e/s on the Lust palette.
Aa a matter of fact, this is the main color that I used for this look!
