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

"Beauty, DIY"

I'm sure we've all seen or read about DIY beauty treatments on the internet... but which ones are the best? I'll break it down for you... Hair Mayo How to apply: Wet hair with warm water. Apply mayo from the middle of the hair to the ends. Put hair up into a shower cap for 30-45 minutes. Wash the mayo out with shampoo. Results: Mayo works so good in hair! With mayo I see immediate results! My hair feels softer and healthier Face Aloe How to apply: Buy a stem of aloe (if you live in FL you can get it at Publix). Cut a small piece off of it. Peel the thick green outer layer off. Mash it up with a fork and leave it on your face until you feel it getting…

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…

Simple Everyday Makeup

"Beauty"

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my everyday makeup routine. I keep my eye makeup simple on an everyday basis - I like for it to look flesh toned. I also don't contour, highlight, or use concealer everyday (I like to save that for special occasions). I skipped the eyeliner on my waterline to make my eyes look more open and awake. Here we go! :) Everything that I use is italicized in pink! [gallery ids="79,80" type="rectangular"] Start with your normal base (CC/BB cream or foundation) - I used a heavier foundation today because I needed my makeup to last a while: Makeup Forever Mat Velvet in #51 Add MAC Paint Pot in "Layin Low" to the eyelids all the way up to the brow bone Set eyelids with setting powder. Curl lashes. Add two…

Favorite Nudes

"Beauty"

Hi! :) As you can tell, this post is dedicated to nudes.. cause who doesn't love a good nude :)? I have very tan/brown skin... kind of along the lines of a medium-dark tan, and these are some of the nudes that I think look beautiful on my skin tone. Eyeshadow: MAC Cosmetics: Paint Pot in Layin Low This paint pot is a little thinner than some of the other paint pots but it's a beautiful color on my tan skin. I love this eyeshadow when I want a neutral look, and I normally set it with my setting powder or neutral colored eyeshadow. Eyeliner: Rimmel London: ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner  - Nude This eyeliner has great color payoff and glides on super easily. Lipstick: MAC Cosmetics: Velvet Teddy, Taupe, Persistence, Whirl TooFaced:…

LuMee Phone Case vs Selfie Ring Light

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Need extra lighting for your selfie but not sure which option to go with? Well, I've tried both the LuMee phone case and the selfie ring light and I'll give you my opinion on both. I purchased my selfie ring light on Amazon.com and personally, I didn't love it. While this ring light is a lot cheaper than the LuMee phone case, I don't believe it enhances the quality of my selfie. For one, the lighting is more of a cool toned, blue/white color. I personally like more of a yellow lighting. The blue/white lighting was not flattering on my tan skin tone. Also, due to the shape of the device, the lighting does not hit my face in the areas I want it too. Instead, it adds additional light on my t-zone and…
