Look of the day

Happy almost Friday!

I don’t know about you but this week I have been so off, day wise it seems. Like I’ve been a day behind all week, thinking today was Wednesday. So because I can’t keep up with the days of the week I might as well just make these next couple posts backwards, haha why not?!

Originally my plan was to do my newest palette review then the look to follow but we are gonna switch it up and keep things interesting.

Colors seemed to be pretty fitting for the fall and winter. I have to say I’ve been even more lazy with my hair lately so loved the braids.

Face :

  • Too Faced Born This Way – Light Beige
  • Lorac concealer – Yellow
  • Rimmel Pressed Powder – sandstorm
  • Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight – Stunner
  • Tarteist Pro Glow Contour – Shade & Sculpt
  • Tarte Blush – Sweet

Eyes :

  • Abh Dipbrow – Dark brown
  • Tarteist Pro – Bold (crease), Edgy & Smoked (outer corner), Minx (lid)
  • Rimmel Colour Percise Liner – Black
  • Max Factor X Master Piece Max Mascara

Not even gonna lie y’all, I have no clue what lashes I was wearing. I have so many that I’ve clean and reused and aren’t in the right cases.. Sorry 

Lips :

NYX Liquid Suede – Brooklyn Thorn

As well as the two contour cream and powder

************************

Just had a great idea to throw up some pictures next time of all the products used so you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Next time!

Xoxo,

New to Ipsy

Hey friends, belated Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone is doing well,  the holidays have had me busy and Im sure as all of you as well. So I got my first ipsy bag in and I was so excited to lay my eyes on it in the mailbox. Yes, at first I will say I was a little skeptical about joining the program, but eventually I came to my senses. High end products for $10 a month isn’t a bad deal, I was surprised to see small travel sizes since I was told they were full sizes, though I’m not complaining. Even high end travel sizes can be over priced. I’m still new to this so I’m not really sure if I’m supposed to just review it or what not.  I’m thinking I’m going to just show you what I received this time . 

Here we go!

I love everything about the packaging! Then when I opened it up to find a pink fur little zip pouch, I got a tad more excited because it was so adorable. Which reminds me I need to start thinking about what I’m going to do with all these zip bags that they send all the sample goodies in.

3 of the 5 products I received I had not heard of, probably because there’s a gazillion lipstick lines and I don’t really ever do much hair care or moisturizers. Not to say I’m not going to turn down or reject them.

First I’m going to start off with the Nyx eyeshadow. In the shade Punk Heart.

Okay y’all, I love Nyx cosmetics they have yet to fail me with any of their products. I haven’t tried their shadows before but as you can see this shimmery purple is very pigmented, this was just a one swipe swatch. The color pay off is very vibrant, let’s just say I was very impressed. I was kind of thinking it would be perfect for New Year’s so be expecting a New Year’s look coming soon with the shadow.

Moving on, to the other makeup product I received was this matte liquid velvet lipstick from Ciate. In the shade Pin Up.

I haven’t ever heard of this brand, but already I can tell you I was impressed. All I did was swatch this on my hand for not even 2 minutes and it had already stained my hand when I wiped it off. Not to mention the show that had been sent me was one of my favorite colors to wear the cute bows on the packaging are just a plus. I plan on checking out their site to find out the other shades as well as if they offer anything else.

Next is the much raved about Tarte Maracuja Oil. Im pretty excited about this one, even though I didn’t know much about it. The box said to use every night on face and neck for 6 weeks to reduce fine limes and wrinkles, improved texrure and renewed appearance. It could also be used to soften cuticles, tame flyaways, condition split ends and hydrate skin and rough patches.

Here is an intensive moisturizer from another brand I haven’t heard of called Cake. They seem to take pride in leaving out: parabens, sodium chloride,phthalates, GMOs, mineral oil, petrolatum, gluten, and triclosan. It says this hand repair balm is 20% made up of Shea butter and approved by beauty junkies.

Last but not least is a frizz control gel from Briogeo. Considering most of the time I’m fighting frizz this is right up my alley! This was also the other one I had never heard of but looking for good results from.

 Have a wonderful rest of the weeks friends!

Xoxo,

Elf Influenster VoxBox

Hey all my makeup enthusiasts!

I got a new voxbox in, and as you can see it was all beauty items. The goodies I got this time are my favorite ones to get! You can never go wrong with a little makeup. Elf is a drugstore cosmetic brand, but I’ve notice over the past few years they’ve really stepped up their game. They went from just ok cheap products to some really good quality products at a very affordable price point. Now, they offer skine care items. I did recieve all of these products from influenster, no charge, for testing purposes. Here’s what I got!

Hydrating Bubble Mask

I wasn’t sure if I was using this correctly the first time I tried it. You want your face damp , push down to pump out product, rub in circular motions, wait 5 minutes for bubbles to bring out dirt and oils. Sounds easy enough, right? Well never could get a good lather of bubbles but was still impressed with how clean an tight my face felt after.



Elf Mineral Primer

Now this one isn’t all that new, but definitely a must have in my opinion. I’ve actually compared this one to the MAC prep n prime and it is literally the same thing, well except for the price and packaging. 

Highlighter
This one I was surprisingly impressed with. I wasn’t sure how well the pigment payoff would be, because I have tried their shadows before and found that some had great pigment and others not so much. Swatched it for ya. Not bad eh?!

Lip Exfoliator
I was excited to try this one, particularly because it is a mint green color,just kinda drew me in. The last time I had tried it was brown, smelled as well as tasted like brown sugar and really messy. This time there not taste or smell. Im nit complaining at all, it gets the job done, my lips stay so frustratingly dry.  Though it does seem like it could be just as messy as it was before. 

Matte Lipstick

Last but not least I received the matte lip color in Wine. It’s such a  beautiful maroon shade. Definitely something I would have pickup to begin with, which I have tried these matte lippies before and really liked them then, for the record I still do. It wasn’t long lasting but the formula wasn’t where it was completely drying my lips out either. 

Well thats all today friends!

Xoxo,

Quick Contour For Face & Eyes

Thought I’d do something different, since I’m not too good these days with producing YouTube videos. So heres a written tutorial!

Well start off with some thing super simple, mainly because I just haven’t had time to get all dolled and gussied up. When I said simple I wasn’t kidding, cause look here at the Lorac Pro Contour Palette.

 This is used to contour right? Right, well you could also use it as shadows when your in a hurry. This is the case for me more often then not, so this way you can knock out the face and eyes with the same powders!

So this one I go to the most starting off with the lightest contour in the crease with big fluffy blending brush. Then apply the deepest on top of that and blending out. Next I used the beige highlight all over lid, while applying the shimmer highlight on the inner comers as well as along the brow bone.

For the actual contour on my face I used the lightest and medium shades to add shadows in the normal areas (you can find a face chart if your not sure what I’m talking about that shows you the correct placement of highlight and contour) and the beige in the lighter zones. 

As far as the other products used:

  • L’oreal Pro Matte Infallible foundation- 104
  • Lorac POREflection Concealer under my eyes- fair
  • Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder for all over setting- 004
  • Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette- Your Love Is King
  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Lashes Extreme mascara
  • Tarts Matte Lip Paint- Namaste

Hope that was simple enough to understand! I mean, this was mainly just about using the Lorac Pro Contour Palette on the face and eyes. Just a quick look to go to when yoir in a rush! 

Stay well my friends and until next time

Xoxo,

 -Britt
