The Real Use for Mac Fix +

"Beauty, Makeup, skin, Uncategorized"

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to talk about MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+. Many people think that MAC Fix+ is intended to be a setting spray, when it isn't. I do not own that photo. ^ Just an image I got from Google images. It's actually a finishing spray. It contains glycerin which helps in making your make up look more uniform. Essentially, it brings the whole make up look together (especially useful if you highlight and contour your face). This spray is also for hydration. So basically, it's supposed to help by making your makeup not look dry/cakey. It kind of "melts" your make up to your skin (not literally melt cause that would be bad- but you get what I mean!). Of course you can use this product whichever way you…

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette – Worth the Hype?

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

[gallery ids="509,508,510" type="square"] Hi everyone! I was SO excited when I got my Huda Beauty Rose-Gold Eyeshadow Palette! Her fake eyelashes are AMAZING so my expectations of this was so high.. especially with all of the hype on social media! So did this palette live up to the hype?! Lets start off with the textured shadows. They are truly like nothing I've ever seen before! They kind of give a foiled effect when applied with your fingers. I've never seen a shimmery eyeshadow that glides on so smoothly and vividly. It's like a loose pigment in eyeshadow form. The sparkly eyeshadows are so pigmented and vibrant. See below for sparkle swatches. (Angelic and Moondust are not 3D colors) Matte Swatches: The matte shadows are also pretty perfect! They are easily buildable and blendable. It…

Everything You Need to Know About the Beauty Blender

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! I'm sure many of you have tried the Beauty Blender or want to try it so I just wanted to give you my thoughts on it. Β If you haven't tried it yet... here's how it works: Wet the sponge and squeeze out excess water (sponge should still be damp). Use it to blend your makeup (foundation, concealer, etc). Let the beauty blender air dry. This product works great for blending out concealer. For oily skin, I wouldn't use it to blend foundation or to apply powders (I have oily skin, so I'm speaking from experience). To clean my beauty blender I use the soap that comes in some of the packages. It gets everything right out. You want to be careful with which products you use to clean it because some products…

Review: Pro Blo-CurlME

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! I've been seeing Pro-Blo products all over social media lately. I hate how flat hair straighteners make my hair so I decided to give this a try so I can finally have some voluminous straight hair! The middle picture comes in the box... [gallery ids="408,409,410" type="columns"] Procedure: Wait till your hair is ~80% dry. Attach the brush head to the handle. Blow dry a section of your hair and then roll the brush up to your head. Remove the handle and clip the brush head into your hair. Repeat until all of your hair is up. Let it sit for about 20 mins. Release. So here are my thoughts after trying it one time.. I really wanted to LOVE this product! I'm not much of a blow dryer so let me preface…

The 3 Best DIY Beauty Treatments

Contour & Highlight Routine for Oily Skin

"Beauty"

Hi everyone! This post is dedicated to my favorite contouring products. I don't like to go heavy with contouring - I like something more subtle. I have oily skin so it took me a while to figure out which product combinations worked for me but thankfully I found it! Before I jump in... I just want to debunk a few "myths": People with oily skin should only use powder contour products I've tried using ONLY the Anastasia Beverly Hills powder contour kit to contour but it just looked so bad and cakey. Also, when my face got oily it just ended up looking muddy. I prefer using a liquid and then setting it with a setting powder...looks much nicer! People with oily skin should not use a damp beauty blender I use a damp…
