Dior Forever Foundation Review & Super Easy Warm Toned Glam Inspo!

"Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized"

If you're a matte foundation lover like me you will love the Dior Forever Foundation! The formulation is non-oily and it comes in 28 shades. With a price tag of $50, it claims to provide medium-full coverage while also delivering even color correction. It is also supposed to last for 16 hours. Does this foundations really do all that it claims to do? Here's what think: I like: Matte - ness and longevity: This foundation stays matte through a full day I haven't worn it for more than 12 hours so I'm not sure if it lives up to the claim but it definitely passes the "12 hour" test. I think that it's pretty rare anyways for someone to wear foundation for 16 hours. My oils do not even peak through this foundation! If…

Alternative to the Beauty Blender

"Beauty, Brushes, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a good day so far! [gallery ids="1639,1640" type="rectangular"] So for the past couple of days I've been using the buffing brush from the BH Cosmetics set that I recently posted about, and it is AMAZING for blending out highlight. Just dab the product around as you would with a beauty blender and voila! I've been trying to find the perfect brush to blend out concealer that wouldn't remove product or leave it streaky, and honestly this brush is just dense enough to leave the concealer looking flawlessly. I haven't used this for cream contour but I'm sure it will work just as well! I have oily skin so I don't like that I have to use a wet beauty blender on my face to blend things out. Also, I…

Messy Curly Hair + My First YT Tutorial

"hair, Uncategorized"

I curl my hair a lot on an everyday basis because I love voluminous hair as opposed to flat hair. This doesn't take me long and it's super easy! It's normally so hard for my hair to keep a curl, but using this wand my hair will stay curly for 3 days! Wand: http://www.remingtonproducts.com/womens/haircare/CurlingIrons/CI96W1A-TStudio-SILK-Ceramic-Slim-Styling-Wand.aspx If you scrunch your hair a lot, try adding a few of these curls into your hair. It will look so beautiful! To get this style: Flip the direction of the curl in and out, with the exception of the pieces towards the face (flip those outwards). Here's my tutorial on how to do it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur29Y2Ede1k I don't know why this is the thumbnail when I changed it 50 times. Seriously, get it together Youtube. But anyways, show me some…

BH Cosmetics Brushes Review

"Brushes, Makeup, Uncategorized"

BH Cosmetics is known for their affordable eye shadows. I never knew they even sold brushes. After doing some research on good brushes (I was specifically looking for a lip brush), I came across their sets. They were 50% off at the time so I figured I might as well try it. I purchased the Metal Rose Makeup Brush set. This set comes with 11 brushes. I can honestly say that these brushes surpassed my expectations. I wasn't expecting them to be such great quality for the price point but it honestly is! They're one of my favorite brush brands, second to Real Techniques. I think these brushes even beat Morphe brushes! Face Brushes: Soft and dense, but not too dense. Just perfect! It feels so nice on the skin and blends out makeup…

Eyebrow Transformation and Tips

"Beauty, Eyebrows, Uncategorized"

Not only are eyebrows "in" right now, but they are so important in shaping your face. Eyebrows can literally make or break you! Ever since I started getting my eyebrows done, I've always had uneven eyebrows. One person messed up my eyebrows and they've been messed up ever since. When I was younger I also used to pluck my eyebrows and that did NOT end up well (who else has fallen victim to this?) Here is a picture from those horrible eyebrow days (I apologize for the bad quality): Besides being uneven, they were so thin and the shape was terrible. Fast forward a couple of years and this is what they look like now: You can see that they are still a little uneven but they have come a far way! I know…
