Everyday Makeup Look |Summer Edition

Hello Beauties!

I’m loving this summer makeup look; it’s super simple and perfect for those hot summer days! I have a video below of the whole process that you can watch, but until then here is a list of products I used! Enjoy!

Nivea Lip Balm: This is a must have for every person! I apply it every morning and night for healthy lips!

Rimmel BB Cream: I love to use this cream during the summer when I don’t need a whole lot of coverage, but I still want a little something-something to brighten up my face.

Almay Clear Complexion Foundation: I generally use this as a concealer for any problem areas I’m having that day, but I make sure not to over do it since it has a slightly heavier coverage.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer (Waterproof): I never used bronzer before, but this summer I’m loving it! I also like that it’s waterproof, so there’s no need to worry about your glow fading throughout the day.

Maybelline FITME powder in 130: I’m all for a controlled natural look, so I’m a huge fan of this super light-weight setting powder. I just apply this in my T-zone to take away some of the shine.

Almay Shade Softies in Creme Brûlée: I just swiped this on my lids for something soft and simple.

Clinique Eyeshadow in Blushed: Contrary to the name, this blue eyeshadow is perfect to use as an eyeliner to brighten my face and add a little bit of color to this natural look!

E.L.F Lip Balm & Tint: It applies super easily and doesn’t fade! I added a little bit of lipgloss over it for an extra shine.

Pixi Moisturizing Setting Spray: It’s little bit more on the pricey side for a setting spray but this stuff is AMAZING! It really keeps your makeup in place all day.

Drugstore Foundation Review!

Hello Beauties!

DSC_0045DSC_0041DSC_0046

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation: Yeah, this thing lasts over a FULL DAY! Or so it says, but why not trust packaging, right? 😉 I personally love it and the brand Rimmel London for practically all of my complexion needs. When needed I apply it everywhere and it really, really stays. I have danced for hours in this (as in ballet on stage) and it never faltered once. I usually use it as a concealer and apply it with a Beauty Blender, and it works pretty well for that. But I’d say it’s much better as a medium to full coverage foundation.

Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation: I haven’t used this foundation in a while, but I’d really like to! I also use this for dance performances, and even though I don’t agree with it as much as the Rimmel London one, it is definitely a full coverage foundation. Aesthetically, I love the packaging; it reminds me of a high-end Nars foundation. Plus, I’m a serious sucker for packaging. I’d love to try the Maybelline Fit Me! Dewy/Matte foundation line as well. It seems very promising…

NYX Super Matte But Not Flat Foundation: This is the first NYX foundation product I ever owned, and I’ve gotta say I was not impressed. NYX is known to be the high-end drugstore company, but this foundation did not apply well, did not matte, and did not wear well. It actually made me oilier than without the foundation. That might have been because my skin was so matted that it produced more oil to overcome the foundation? Whatever the reason, I’d be weary of this product. It says that it’s full coverage, but then it wears off throughout the day.

Maybelline Dream Liquid/Matte Mousse Foundation: I have used one completely up (the liquid) and one I barely touched (the jar). That’s not because it wasn’t good, it’s because it seriously matted my face! I obviously didn’t need as much coverage as I thought, but I gotta say that it’s very entertaining to just feel the whipped, bouncy foundation. The liquid I liked when I didn’t really have a lot of skin problems, so if you are someone who wants a light coverage, airy foundation, then this is the product for you!

Covergirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Pressed Foundation: I didn’t think much of this product, or even this line, before I heard good things about this powder from a friend. I just buy mascara from Covergirl and nothing else. But I like this product as a really amazing powder over a foundation, or as a coverup for them attractive under-eye bags and what not. I think it would be a nice light coverage foundation, but like really, really light coverage.

Get Ready With Me (Makeup Edition)!

Hello My Beauties!

Everyday Makeup

I’ve been meaning to produce a makeup video that is just full-blown edited, thought out, styled, etc. for a while, but I haven’t had the time until recently. It took a while to put together, but I’m really proud of my Everyday Makeup Routine and I’d really appreciate your comments!

I also want to celebrate a small victory of getting over 1,000 views on my channel *Woop Woop*! I really support everything that you guys have done for me, all of my readers and watchers, it honestly means so much! So please enjoy this video and stay tuned for a nice, long, dedicated post! I feel like I haven’t really been giving enough love to this blog, but I have changed up my posting schedule to something a bit more manageable. Until next time…

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,
