November Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share with you my November favorites, and there is quite a few!

Makeup:

Physician’s Formula The Healthy Lip liquid lipstick in berry healthy – This is a beautiful berry/mauve shade! What I love to do with this is dot a little bit on the center of my lips and then smudge it out with my finger for a matte lip tint!

Physicians Formula butter highlighter in pearl – My skin always looks so dry and dull in the winter, and this has been my favorite highlighter to use, I use it every day. It has a beautiful formula and a lovely glow.

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice lipstick in Backtalk – I love this as a lipstick, but this past month I have been using it as a cream blush and I think it is gorgeous! Can someone tell me if Urban Decay makes this as a blush? Because I will buy it!

NYX Micro Brow pencil in Taupe – This has been my go to brow product. It is impossible to mess up with this pencil, my brows always look filled in and feathery, like real hair. I enjoy the definition it gives and it’s easy to use. Continue reading “November Beauty Favorites!”

Haircare Routine for Dry Hair

Hello my lovlies! Im back with another beauty blog. After doing my dry and oily skin blog, i realized that along with suffering with both dry and oily skin, i also suffered both dry and oily hair. I know that many people on this beautiful planet also suffer this problem, so i thought i would share a few things i did to get rid of my dry hair!!

Hair Masks:

One thing i did to help get rid of my dry hair was to start using hair mask. I would recommend making your own opposed to buying pre-made ones from the store. This way you know exactly what is going onto your hair. I mostly used an avacado mask twice a month on my hair.

Do not over wash!:

Try not to wash your hair too much, shampoo can and does often times dry out your hair when you over wash it. I take showers daily, but i only wash my hair every other two days. Also make sure that the shampoo you’re using wont dry out your hair. Some shampoos have acids and what not in them that are a death sentence for your hair.

Use olive oil as conditioner:

Once again, you never know what youre putting on your hair when using store shampoo’s and conditioners. When i had dry hair i used A VERY LITTLE amonut of olive oil as conditioner. If you use to much your hair will look greasy, and we dont want that either. Using olive oil on your hair will also help keep your tips nice and healthy.

Dry your hair naturally or wrap it dry:

Lastly using blow dryers and shaking your hair dry can badly damage and dry out your hair. I always always always air dry my hair when i get out of the shower and i find hat this helps SO much!

I know this is a short blog, but these are the steps i took to fix my dry hair.

Fall Hairstyles that I’m in Love with 2018

Hello my lovelies! Its OCTOBERRRR!!!! Can i can a woot woot?! I love October, i love fall fashion and i feel like October is just the peak of fall fashion. I also realized how little i’ve posted on hair. I always say that our blog isn’t just about the makeup side of beauty, but all the sides beauty. Hair care/styles being one of them.

Recently i’ve cut my hair, and as much as i miss my lush beautiful long hair, cutting it made me realize how many different hairstyles there are.

Blunt Curls:

Stunning hairstyles women spring trends 2018 (1)

I positively love this hair style for fall. I think it would go perfectly with a large plaid scarf, black leggings and some hunter boots or just brown riding boots. I love how this can work with any hair color and any outfit. You can dress these curls up or down.

Flat middle part:

90th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I love how this falt middle part can be so elegant and so simple. I also love how this hairstyle can work for both short and long hair!

Curtain bangs:

I have lately, over this past year grown a huge obession with bangs, espesically these curtain bangs. I love how these can be worn down, in braids, a bun. You have so much to work with when it comes to bangs. Although they are hard to manage at times (trust me i have them) I think that when pulled off correctly, it makes a perfect fall look.

Low messy bun:

Now im a huge Meghan fan, and anything she wears both clothing and hair is just beautiful, but i love how elegant this low hanging messy bun! This can be worn with anything! And when it comest to fall and winter, do we really want to put any effort into our hair?

Crown braid:

Now you’all should know how much i love braids. I love how you can do and go literally anywhere with them. My favorite would have to be the dutch crown braid. I think its a perfect fall look!

Angeled bob:

Not to be mistaken with the blunt curls, this angeld “I havent straightend my hair” look is so beautiful! Perfect for the fall with short hair!

Well my lovelies, thats its for todays blog!

Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks!

Hello love bugs!

Now you know how your girl love her some drug store makeup! Here is a little mini review on some new lipsticks I got!

Nyx liquid suede

Now I lost this one just recently and I’m so upset! I really love this lipstick. It gives the perfect matte finish and it’s so long lasting!

Nyx lingerie

 

This one I love love love! I tend to lean more toward the red shades when it comes to lipsticks, but this is my favorite non red shade of lipstick I have! I love the thick matte finish, but it doesn’t feel thick against your lips! My only advice it to put on lip balm before application, once it dries it tends to flake off, lip balm keeps it smooth all day.

Liquid catsuit

Like I said before. I love red shades. I’ve never had a super bright red lipstick so I was super excited to get this. Unfortunately after I put it on it began to crust and flake, so I didn’t like it as much. I do now put on lip balm before hand, it does help, just not as much as I would like.

That’s it for today! What’s your favorite brand of lipstick?

My night time routine

Hello love bugs!

I remembered way back when our blog was little itty bitty fetus, I did a morning routine, so today I shall share my night time routine.

  1. Remove all makeup.

I remove my makeup using coconut oil, I find it really helps to remove my mascara. For a deeper cleanse I use rose water to remove all the excess dirt and makeup. I use a cotton ball until there’s no more makeup/dirt. After that I spray the Mario Badescu facial spray on and massage it into my skin. Once a week I will use a charcoal face mask before bed

2. Brush and braid hair

My hair has grown a lot longer since cutting it, and I find that if I have it down or up in a pony tail I wake up with the most horrific knots. So I brush through my hair about 100 times (50 each side) to make it soft, silky and knot free. Next I put a very little amount of rose oil onto my fingers and run it through my hair. This helps with shine, after this I braid my hair and call it good! I also find the rose oil helps my hair smell amazing the next morning when I take the braids out.

3. Brush teeth

Naturally I brush my teeth. I use baking soda and lemon juice first. I find it helps whiten my teeth as well as break down plaque and other gross stuff resting on your teeth! Next I use Tom’s mint toothpaste to brush my teeth. I really like how Tom’s has no fluoride in their products, it’s all natural!

4. Switch on my essential oil diffuser

I have a really hard time sleeping at night. With a little lavender oil in the air I find my sleeping has greatly improved! This especially helps after a long day of school and retail!

5. Put my mouth guard on and call it a night!

As a high stress person, I grind my teeth at night. This causes a lot of pain in my jaw the next morning, so I use my night guard to stop myself from grinding, after that I go to sleep.

That’s it for my nighttime routine! What do you do?

Ross haul!

Hello my lovelies! Can you believe that it’s already April?! As a senior I can’t!

A few weeks ago, I needed a bit of retail therapy, so I went to check out my local Ross. I love how both Ross and Marshall’s little beauty section has a bunch of hidden little gems!

The first thing I got was a little pink portable mirror. I was going on an orchestra event that weekend and remembered that I would be sharing a hotel room with 4 girls, all of which will be fighting over the mirror. So I decided to get myself my own little one. The mirror was only $4.99

Next I got these super cute ankle high black booties. My new craze his ankle high booties, and all of mine are either brown or tan, so I wanted to shake things up a bit by getting some black ones. The booties where only $12.99

Next I got some rose oil. Now I’m a huge fan of anything rose or lavender. And I especially love rose oil and rose water, so when I saw this rose oil I just had to get it. I really love how there are real roses in it. It gives it a natural smell. Perfect for going to bed with. This was $4.99

Next I got a set of scrunchies. Recently I was going through some old hair accessories I used to have as a kid, and realized how much I love scrunchies. They are majorly under appreciated. The scrunchies I had as a kid didn’t really match the outfits I tend to wear, so when I found these scrunchies and realized that they would match a lot of my outfits I was so in love! These were only $3.99!

March Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I can’t believe that March has gone so fast, but I’m so glad it is getting warmer and is almost summer! Let’s get into products that I have been loving all month:

Makeup:

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lovecraft – This is the old formula, and I do want to try the new one, but for the time being I have been loving this! Its the perfect deep pinky nude for fairer skin tones. I’ve been wearing this so often since it is finally spring and the weather is warming up!

Urban Decay Comfort Matte in Backtalk – This is a beautiful mauvey shade, I swear it goes with everything! I know I wasn’t crazy about the comfort matte formula in my initial review, and I found that this dried out my lips, but if you put a lip balm on before it is less of an issue.

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara – I’ve been doing a lot of 5 minute makeup looks because it has been a busy month. This is my favorite natural, defining, and reliable mascara. If I need to get ready fast without much fuss I will always reach for this!

Itcosmetics Hello Light Creme Luminizer – I know I’ve been talking about this tons lately but I just can’t stop using it! I’ve used this every single day this month, because it is so shimmery, gorgeous and looks very natural on my very fair skin. This is my everyday go to glow right now!

Skincare:

The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner – This has been so great for my skin lately. It really does hydrate your skin and keep it feeling fresh. I overall have been really loving it so if you have dry skin and are looking for a toner, I recommend you try out this one, plus it isn’t expensive!

b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask – I actually have been reaching for this every time I need to use a mask. It’s been a pretty stressful month, so my skin has felt dirty and in need of some purifying. This really does the job to get my glow back! (This was sent to both of us for free in exchange for review)

Haircare:

2chic Ultra Moist Leave in Conditioner and Styling Elixir – If you have wavy or curly hair you need to try this, it is also from the drugstore! I absolutely love the texture, it is really light and will not weigh down your hair, but it really will define your waves or curls and keep them moisturized!

That is it for my beauty favorites! Let me know something you have been loving in the comments down below!
