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

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 EyelinerΒ  - 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…
