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.

Review of Simple Micellar Water! | Total Tuesday

Hello Beauties!

Since every other beauty blogger has been reviewing Simple Skincare’s Micellar Water, so why not go with the herd and test it out? This is also the second part of my favorite water-based skincare products review. If you want to watch see more of the review click here or go to my channel to see part 1 and part 2. Enjoy!

I would classify this cleanser/makeup remover/moisturizing solution as a drugstore dupe of a lot of the other micellar waters out there. This incredible water from the Heavens first originated in Europe where it was popularized by French models. Now, if I had any way of getting model-esque skin I would jump at the chance, but I was apprehensive about dropping a couple of 20s for it (that is 20 dollar bills btw). That’s when I saw that Simple Skincare put out their own micellar water and it is available in the U.S. And that’s where we are at right now!

I hope that you guys liked these past couple videos on these products! Stay tuned for more videos every Tuesday and Thursday, and a more detailed post every Friday! Until next time…

If You’ve Ever Been In Love

Hello My Beauties

Watch this video first and then read this post, it will make a bit more sense!

My most serious relationship didn’t last very long, and I have to say that I’m not quiet sure if it was “true love”, but I do think that it was some kind of love. We definitely had our ups and downs, but somehow we continued to forgive and forget. That is until the bad started to outweigh the good.

“I miss you. Not ‘I regret what happened’ or ‘I want to see you again’. Just… I miss you.” This was how it felt after we broke up. I knew that it was the right thing to do, but there was still this piece of me that felt weird and indescribable. It was that kind of feeling that you get at one in the morning and you don’t really know why. It was a part of me that missed loving someone so much, and being loved in return.

This short film by Nick L’Barrow hits you where you don’t expect it to. It tells the story of two people who “loved without reason”, and felt the loss when it was over. It’s real, honest, and painful because I believe that we’ve all experienced these feelings in our own ways. When we breakup, we end something beautiful, so it’s understandable that it hurts so damn much.

So when you’re at the computer, pouring your heart out in an email addressed to the one that you once loved (which we have all done), maybe it’s better not to send it. Maybe it’s better to move forward, to miss what has gone missing, and to love again. Maybe it’s better to start another, equally beautiful relationship with someone just as amazing. Maybe it’s better to love again and risk what you have, than to chase what’s already been lost. Just some food for thought.

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,
