10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts

I am not sure if it’s the double taps, or the fact that the layouts are so intriguing, but everyone seems to be infatuated Instagram (including myself). I am constantly on the popular page just looking for new accounts to stalk.

You really loved when I posted all about my favorite bloggers to follow, so I thought that I would do a spin off post from that. Today I have 10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts for you. If you already follow some of these people, we are that much closer to becoming besties.

Product Review: Rodan +FIELDS & GIVEAWAY!

If you don’t already know, the key to good makeup application is great skin. Your face is a canvas, if you have the right tools, your painting will come out flawless. For today’s Makeup Monday I have a Rodan +FIELDS product review and giveaway. My friend Laura and I will be giving away 5 mini facials, so stay tuned!

In order to figure out what kind of treatment I needed, Laura, sent me a solution tool so that she could send over the proper samples!

I received the travel sized version of the Reverse Brightening Regiment.

The travel size comes with four steps:

  • Deep exfoliating wash
  • Intensive brightening toner
  • Dual active brightening complex
  • Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen

Bonus:

Microdermabrasion Paste

Being someone that wears a lot of makeup, I need that intense exfoliating feel, so that I know my skin is being cleaned. I am also someone that has a lot of discoloration and some dark spots. The toner and brightening complex will help to reduce those problems. We all need SPF in our lives, it is the most important part of skin care!

My first thought when I received the products in the mail is that the travel size has a pretty fair amount of product. I love the simple yet bold packaging. The white makes the products look clean, while the yellow is bright, in your face, and refreshing.

Deep exfoliating wash:

While testing out the deep exfoliant wash, the smell was incredible, I am a sucker for an orange scent, and that is exactly what I got! I received the deep exfoliate feeling just as promised, it really made me feel like I got every inch of makeup off of my face. A clean face is a happy one!

Intensive Brightening Toner:

This toner has a tingling effect, which I love, that helps me to know that the product is actually working and cleansing!

Dual active brightening complex:

This contains retinol to help keep the pesky breakouts away. It feels so soothing and applies so smoothly.

Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen:

This sunscreen is a thick consistency, it has a hint of a sunscreen smell, but not too overpowering. SPF is a great product to have on under your makeup. The sun ages you, protect the skin!

All in all, I would rate Rodan + FIELDS products a 5/5. Trust me when I say that you need it in your life.

Makeup Monday: LipSense Review

Oh my goodness! I am sure that you have heard of LipSense before, right? Well if you haven’t, I am here to tell you all about it. Basically it is this amazing liquid lipstick that is known to last for up to 18 hours! I know, crazy huh.

 



When I received my starter kit, it came in an adorable little mesh bag. It had a color liquid lipstick, a gloss, and an oops remover. It also had the application directions in it. It retails in the US for about $55.00, and you are about to find out if it was worth it or not.

This product is all about application, if it’s applied correctly, the longer it will last. You can find this product mostly online, there are tons of distributors.

APPLICATION:

Apply three thin layers of color, not letting your lips touch. After color is dry, apply gloss, and then you are ready for your day!



When I applied my LipSense, it had a tingling effect to it. I did some research and it does that to dry lips, so make sure that your lips are nice and moisturized before the application.

This product claims to be:

  • Waterproof
  • Kiss proof
  • Smudge proof
  • Rub off proof

Basically everything proof!

Believe me when I tell you that it is!! My color lasted 8 hours and it looked fabulous at the end of the day! My husband hates when I have lipstick on and he can’t kiss me. With LipSense, he can kiss me all day without a worry that he is going to have red lips himself.

Overall I rate LipSense a 5/5, I am even considering becoming a sales consultant! Let me know if you have tried LipSense before and how you feel about it.

Everyday Makeup Routine 

Hello! How was everyone’s holiday weekend? I hope that it was amazing! Mine was filled with smiles, family and food. Today I am bringing to you my everyday makeup routine! I know that some of you miss my makeup posts (Aunt Cindy and Maddison). This one is for you! 

I would first like to say, excuse my crusty ass nose and my lazy eye. I was really sick for like a week and my nose was raw. My lazy eye is just there for everyone to enjoy. Now, on to the good stuff. 

First things first, I always wash my hands and then sanitize them. I try to keep my breakout to a minimum. Dirty hands touching the face is a big cause of breakouts. 

Moisturize

To moisturize my face I use coconut oil. I use coconut oil for absolutely everything. I love it. This is also the time that I like to apply chapstick. It preps my lips and gets them ready for lipstick. 

Primer

I know that this sounds weird, but to prime my face I use Nivea Men’s Post Shave Balm. It contains glycerin, and glycerin helps makeup stay on your face. 

Face 

For foundation I like to use Loriel True Match. This is one of the best foundations that I have ever tried. The color selection is ridiculous! Once that is applied, I go in with concealer. When I apply concealer, I apply it in an upside down triangle under my eyes. This covers more areas on the face and also highlights. 

To set the under eye area, I use the Laura Mercier translucent powder. To set the rest of my face I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. 

Once all of that is done, I apply my blush, the one that I have been using is Milani baked blush in 02 Rose D’Oro. To highlight I have been using Mac’s beaming blush. 

Brows

Brows have been the same for a while now. I am using Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown. To set them I apply Brow This Way by Rimmel. 

Eyes

I love me some winged liner. This is a gel liner from Elf that I purchased a long time ago. I use this bad boy everyday. Mascara is Maybelline Lash Essentials Mascara. By far the best mascara I have ever used. To spice up my look a little, I apply a highlighted eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes. This adds a little extra something and makes it look like you spent a lot of time on your eyes. 

Lips

Usually for lips I use something simple, like a nude lipstick or a gloss, but today I am wearing Spice by Kylie Cosmetics. I took Blog pictures and you will see them very soon! 

To make sure that my makeup stays in place all day, I like to spray my face with some setting spray, this one is from Urban Decay. 

My makeup usually takes my about 15 minutes to accomplish. I hope that you all enejoyed this post! Remember to stay awesome and I will talk to you all in the next one! 

I love you! 

PATRIOTIC MAKEUP

Ummmm, has anyone else realized that Fourth of July is around the corner? For those of you who do not live in the United States, July fourth is the day that America declared it’s independence! We celebrate with fireworks, pool parties and barbecues. Most of show our pride by wearing the colors of our flag and listen to great songs about our country. So in honor of our celebration, I have created a fun and patriotic makeup look for all of you! I had a ton of fun coming up with this look, it took me a couple of tries to figure out what I wanted, but I finally did it. This is a very bold day or night look, but don’t be scared to give it a try. I hope that you all enjoy this post, as much as I enjoyed putting it together. If you have already created something similar, I would love to check it out. Leave the link in the comments and I will give it some love. Now let’s get started with the good stuff.

Before I applied any face makeup, I created my eye look. This blue eye shadow got all over the place! If you choose to apply your face first, be very careful, you don’t want to look like you got attacked by a smurf. I like to apply tape underneath my eyes to create a sharp, crisp line. If you are confused when I say apply tape, I will leave a link explaining that. I am horrible with explanations, you can check that out on my Pinterest. From there, I created a wing with a blue eye shadow, feel free to use a blue eyeliner if you have one. It might be easier to apply, but I don’t own a blue liner. I should really get one, it would have made things a lot easier. Anyway… The next step was applying that same blue shadow in my crease, for those of you that are not comfortable, feel free to skip that step. My “winged liner” kept transferring  to my lid so I went ahead and placed it in the crease. If you can’t beat them, join them! Once that you have blue all over the place, I applied some false eyelashes, just to glam the look up a little. I feel like falsies can make or break a make up look. They just give so much life to your creation, it is unreal!

OK, so now that you are satisfied with the blue and are out of your comfort zone, it is time to apply the rest of your face. My face consists of; moisturizer, concealer, foundation, setting powder, bronzer, blush, highlight and eyebrows. I have a post on the products that I use on a everyday basis, I will leave the link to that here. Once I completed my usual face stuff, I felt like this look needed a little more jazz to it. I took a glittery liquid liner, this one is from E.L.F, I applied it to the tops of my cheek bones like a highlighter. I feel more like myself now. Ahh, sparkles! If glitter doesn’t make you happy, you are not considered a human, I don’t know what you are.

Now for the fun, yet most complicated part of this look as a whole. The application of red lipstick, try to keep it on your lips and off of your elbows. If you accidentally get it on other parts of your face (or body), like I do every time, just cover it with a small (or a large) amount of your foundation. I used a liquid lipstick from Colourpop and a CoverGirl gloss on top. After that you look more patriotic than ever before! You can sing a little a song, preferably a Toby Keith one and feel free to do a little dance. Now put on your party clothes, change outfits at least two more times and then go have fun! I got this cute top at Charlotte Russe in the Plus Size section. They had American flag tops and all kinds of patriotic fashion items there! Cute stuff and amazing sales, you will thank me later.

Thank you all for reading this post, I hope that you liked it. Remember this is a fun look, not my everyday look, so please be nice. If any of you recreate this look, I would love to see it! Please tag me on Instagram, Twitter, wherever! I love you all, until next time!

Let’s be friends!

The Unforgettable Makeup Look

I feel like Mondays should be dedicated to blogging. Monday is a day that I don’t want to do anything else aside from getting a post up for all of my beautiful readers. I just want to thank you all for keeping me interested and excited to create new fun looks for you all. I appreciate every single one of you. 


Today I have created a look that can go two completely different ways. Same eye look, just two different lip colors. One very bold and the other is very light and fresh. This look I would definetly say is a night look, but if you really don’t care and are ready to step out of the box, you can rock this face any time of the day. 


The Kat Von D Shade and Light Eyes Pallette 

Blue Sephora Single Eyeshadow

Face wise I went full coverage, I’m talking color corrector, foundation, concealer and even a little baking under the eyes. For those of you who don’t know what I mean by the term “baking”, I will leave a Video explaining the entire thing! 

Don’t forget to contour and highlight! If we are going all out, we need to make sure that we don’t skip one step. We need to look at flawless as possible, even if we look like something from a Tim Burton Movie. If you would like to see a post dedicated entirely to contouring, please let me know in the comments and I will be sure and get that up for you.  


For my crease I used every single brown shade in this pallette. I’m not kidding, I started with the lightest shade, worked that into my crease and then moves on to the next. Feel free to make this look as dark or as light as you would like. I didn’t go in with any black in the crease, I saved that for the bottom lash line. I just want to put this out there for those of you that are unaware of how important this is, BLENDING is key. Make sure that all of your makeup is blended. I mean of corse if you like the choppy look, then have at it! 

Once you get the intensity to your liking, I went ahead and winged out my liner. This step depends on your personal preference, like I said I went all out, so the wing was a must for me. My wings are far from perfect, but I am learning and getting better each time that I practice. 


Now for the fun part! Your bottom lash line is going to be the main focus on the eyes. I took a black coal liner and smeared that baby all over, I even took it down to my lashes a little. With a very small brush I picked up the blue eyeshadow and smudged out all of the black. I went crazy and really went heavy with the black and blue. Just keep smudging and going back into the blue until you are satisfied. 


Once you are happy all you have to do is apply mascara and even pop on some eyelashes. I didn’t apply any lashes because I wanted to show you all that makeup looks can be just as gorgeous without false lashes. 

Now for lip options; Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Echo and Kylie Cosmetics in Heir. 


If you are brave enough to rock the blue lip, I would say to go for it! If not a very light color lip would look just as amazing. Try something new every once in a while. You may be surprised at all of the different looks that you can pull off. I will have the link to both of these lips down below, be sure and check them out. Thank you for reading, please remember to follow me and like this post! Stay Amazing.

Makeup storage 

Here is my little makeup set up that I have done myself. Why pay a bunch of money for a vanity, I bought my desk at a garage sale for $30. I plan on painting it along with my chair and making it look new. As of now this is my set up. I hope that you like it. 

  
My chair is just an old kitchen table chair, my table broke so I kept one chair to sit and do my makeup. I want to up cycle my whole set up, just don’t know what I am going to go with yet. My ring light I got off of amazon for about $70. I absolutely love this bad boy! I will leave the link down below. Defiantly worth the money if you have it. 

  
Take a look into my single eyeshadow drawer!   
Here is a little zoom in on what is on top of my desk. To the right I have my little drawer that holds my single eyeshadows and pigments. On top of that are my speakers, I love to listen to music constantly. I also have some pallets that I use often or that I need to remember to use. I have a ring holder and a pencil hold with some hair ties and Bobby pins. Next to that are two pink containers that I got at hobby lobby, they hold my brushes in them. To the left of those is a container holding some blushes and highlighters, I keep them out because they don’t fit into the drawer of the desk. Moving on to the bigger box in front of that one is my everyday makeup container. I keep those products together so that I am not constantly looking for what I need, it does change pretty often though. Next is just some of my favorite hair products, I am think about posting a blog about all of those and more details about them. On top of the three drawer unit is all of my foundations, I am constantly trying new brands and different foundations. Finally, the three drawer unit that you see holds all of my lip products! I would have to say  that lippies are my favorite makeup products to purchase. Here is a peek of what is inside.  

Top drawer.

Second drawer. 

  

Third drawer.

  

Next is inside my desk! This is where I keep my face powders, blushes, eyeshadow pallets, eyelashes, and concealers! And that is all of this tour! This is just a little before tour before I fix up my desk and chair and move it all into my (coming soon) beauty room! I hope that you all enjoyed it. Be sure to follow me on here and all of my social media! We can become friends and I am always up for a collaboration.

  • My next favorite is defiantly the Morphe 350 pallet!

If it is actually in stock you can purchase your pallet on the Morphe website. Did I mention that this pallet is SUPER affordable?!  
  • Hats have been my best friend, I have been sick this month and have not felt up to doing my hair. I purchased this Nike hat on Amazon and have not taken it off. It fits my head perfectly and just hides my face so well!  I could not find a hat that fit me so well until I picked up this beauty.  
  • Speaking of being sick, the next favorite of mine is going to have to be Excederine Extra Strength medicine. I have had headaches non stop and I take two of these and BAM! There gone. These pills work pretty damn good, best medicine around.   
  • This new product I knew from the time I first seen the commercial, that I was going to love it. This is the Maybeline Lash Sensational Mascara.  This mascara seriously makes me look as if I am wearing falsies. It coats beautifully and doesn’t get clumpy! Maybeline has done it again, they are just the top drug store makeup brand for mascaras.  
  • My favorite YouTuber of the month is Amanda Endsing. She is so beautiful and just cool. I love her tutorials and snapchat stories. If you are not already following her, you should do so now!
