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…

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…

10 Beauty Products that are Not Worth the Hype

"Beauty, hair, Makeup, Uncategorized"

L'Oréal Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black By the way everyone raves about this product I thought it would be amazing and better than my holy grail (Too Faced BTS), but it isn't. It IS a good mascara for volume - but not for length. CoverGirl has equally great mascaras. Makeup Forever Skin Equalizer Primer Doesn't control my oil so makeup longevity decreases. Might be better for someone with dry skin. Don't notice a smoothing effect. NUME Curling Wands I have the set with 3 barrels (big, medium, small). Hair doesn't hold a curl very long with these Temperature keeps fluctuating The one pro is that my hair does look shiny when I use this product. Soap and Glory Body Butter and Shower Gel I expected this to be amazing because it's raved about so…

10 Hyped Up Products that are Worth the Hype

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer This is the first concealer that I've ever tried for highlighting and it is PERFECT! It is full coverage (will cover acne marks) yet lightweight and it blends out easily! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer One of my favorites! Beautiful color (kind of warm but not too warm) - will look nice on many skin tones. I use medium/deep. MAC Cosmetics Give Me Sun Bronzer If you haven't tried this, what are you doing with your life? But seriously, THE BEST BRONZER! You need this in your life. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara My holy grail. Haven't tried anything better. Don't need too. Ben Nye Translucent Setting Powders Love using this on those nights that I want to look extra special. I use the "Pretty Pink"  color because it…
