New Lip Swatches

Hi Loves!!! It’s hard to believe it’s SEPTEMBER!!! I must say this summer flew by for me because I was so busy but I had an amazing summer! I am SO ready for fall because I am ready for Fall Lippies! The swatches below are some lipsticks I picked up over the summer.

Although I have a lot of matte swatches to follow, I have seriously been loving glosses lately. This is Kylie gloss in KoKo K. The formula of this gloss is amazing! I would only wear it alone if I had a softer eye or just liner, but here I lined it with MAC’s Cork.

Day to Night

Processed with MOLDIV

Hi Loves!!! Today’s post is about  going from a day look to a night look in three easy steps. Before I get into this let’s state the obvious: I’m obsessed with SnapChat filters!!! Now moving on, these pictures were taken on the same day. The picture on the left was my day time look. Smashbox BB water, concealer to highlight, powder to set my face, bronzer to “contour”, brows, mascara, a highlighting powder, and gloss. To get my night time look I only did three things:

1. Applied Kiss lashes in Beyond Natural 03

2. Applied NYC liquid eyeliner (only lined top of eyes)

3. Applied NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in Honeymoon

That’s it ladies! I didn’t do anything else to my face but blot excess oil and set my face again with powder! Super quick and easy! If you have any questions leave them below. Thanks for reading! Xoxo

“No Makeup” Makeup: Powder Foundation Routine

IMG_1293

Hi Loves!!! Today I will show you my “No Makeup” makeup routine. This is my go to look when I’m in a rush. I don’t use foundation, only powder so it’s a pretty quick routine. Let’s get started! FYI: I am traveling for work so I did this look in my hotel room so I apologize for the bad lighting.

Just a quick note, I usually do not prime my face when I’m only using powder. I like how the powder gets “dewy” as the day goes on. By all means use a primer if you see fit! As always I did my brows first. Since I’m traveling I tried to keep the makeup I brought with me to a minimum (It was SO hard!) so I filled my brows in with pencil only and then cleaned them up with concealer. The next step is to conceal any dark spots. I placed the concealer with a Real Techniques brow brush and then blend it out with a damp Beauty Blender. As you can see the Beauty Blender blends out concealer flawlessly. It truly is worth the investment.
