Happy New Year!

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

 

 

My Favorite BSS Lashes

image.jpegHey Loves! Super quick post about my favorite lashes from the Beauty Supply Store (BSS). I usually buy all of my lashes from the BSS because they are super cheap. None of them cost more than $4.

Ardell 120 Demi: My FAVORITE lash! It looks very natural when you wear them alone and they also look amazing with eyeshadow. You can get these pretty much anywhere, Walmart, CVS, Ulta etc.

Broadway #747XS or #747S: I have only seen these lashes at the BSS. They are always $1.99 and I love them! The Only difference between the XS and S is the band length if I’m not mistaken. These are the most natural lashes I wear.

Kiss Beyond Natural 03: I also have only seen these lashes at the BSS. They usually are no more than $2.99. Although they look strange in the box they are BEAUTIFUL on the eye! I love to wear these when I have a simple eye look but want a little glam!

Four Months and No Makeup Post

Hi Loves! I can not believe it’s been four LONG months since I posted on Raia’s World! I am so so sorry 😦 Things have been a whirlwind around me! I could go into the long drawn out story about why I haven’t been posting but I will save you the boring read. My time is not my own these days so I don’t foresee tons of post in my future, but I will try to get mini post out there for you guys throughout the next couple of months. Thank you guys for understanding!

This is my go to look these days. It takes me about 20 minutes to get this look but I truly do love it.

Face:
Tart Timeless Smoothing Primer
NARS All Day Luminous Foundation (apply with fingers)
NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer (highlight under-eye, nose, chin)
Ben Nye Topaz Powder (set highlight)
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish (set whole face)
MAC Refined Golden (bronze cheeks, forehead, nose)
MAC Ambering Rose Blush
Becca Topaz Highlighter
Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray

Brows:
Urban Decay Brow Beater (New FAV)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (clean up brows)

Eyes:
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Beauty Supply Store Lashes

Lips:
MAC Dej Loaf Lipglass (perfect nude gloss)

In both these pictures I have the exact same look. I have been skipping eyehsadow and eyeliner. This makes putting on my makeup a lot faster. I also still feel glam with very minimal effort.

Thanks for sticking around loves and being patient with my blog. Be on the look out for more mini post. As always, if you have questions leave them below and thanks for reading! xoxo
