June Beauty Favorites!

Hey guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share my June beauty favorites, I have been shopping a lot and have been trying out tons of new products:

Makeup:

Becca Backlight Priming filter primer – This has been my go to every time I’ve needed to do my makeup for an event this past month. It makes my skin dewy and hydrated and it also keeps my foundation on longer, so I have really been enjoying it!

Hourglass Vanish stick foundation in Blanc – This has also been my go to this past month! I always went to this foundation for weightless full coverage as well as the gorgeous satin finish for my prom and graduation makeup.

NYX Butter Gloss in angel food cake – This has been my favorite to throw on for everyday. It is a beautiful pink color that makes my lips juicy and pretty. You guys already know how much I love these glosses!

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer – This bronzer lasts ages on the skin, isn’t too dark for me, I just love it. I won’t bore you guys because I recently did a review and talked all about this!

Skin/Bodycare:

valjean labs Glow serum – This serum delivers really nice hydration. It is my favorite serum for this warm weather because it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, but it still keeps your skin really moisturized.

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?

Tarte Amazonian Clay Park Avenue Princess Bronzer Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to another review! I’ve been trying this bronzer out lately and I wanted to review it to let you guys know if it is worth the hype or not!

Lets get into it:


Overview:

  • Price: $30.00
  • Cruelty free and 100% vegan
  • 9g of product
  • is free of parabens and phthalates

Promise: This all-matte waterproof version adds instant warmth and dimension across a variety of skin tones. The Amazonian clay-infused formula helps to improve skin clarity, texture, and tone for an overall lit-from-within complexion.


This bronzer is very matte, no shimmer, which I love personally. This works really well on my fair skin, it is easy to work with, it blends out easily and the color isn’t too dark. This also won’t make you look like you have a stripe of dirt on your face or make you look orange even if it is pretty warm toned, so I really love that about it! It looks very natural and I Continue reading “Tarte Amazonian Clay Park Avenue Princess Bronzer Review”

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?

Laura Geller Balance and Bronze Foundation and Bronzer – This I haven’t used because I was focusing on the benefit. I will rotate it in next month.

Laura Geller Cream Blush – This has a bit of a dip in it, some progress but not as much as I’d like.

It Cosmetics Hello Light Creme Luminizer – I love this product, and I made tons of progress on it. It went down 0.6cm from the intro.

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I have been wanting to do another one of these posts for ages, and you guys really seemed to like the last one, so I figured now would be the perfect time to do a part two!

If any of you guys have done this post before, leave the link to it down below and I will come read it!

Eyes:

1. Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette

I can’t think of any beauty youtuber who doesn’t have this palette! I bought it a little over six months ago, and honestly, it does live up to the hype. The shades are very very blendable and so gorgeous. If you like warm tones, I am certain that you will love this palette.

Face Products:


2. Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer

I saw this on so many channels of girls who have super fair skin like I do. It is the perfect tone of bronze, and it isn’t too orange, nor is it too dark. It is really perfect. I would say if you have the money to spend on this bronzer, it is beautiful and I think you will love it!

3. Physicians Formula Highlighter in the shade Pearl

You guys know I am obsessed with this! It is such a gorgeous super light highlighter with a bit of a shift. The formula is so soft, it almost feels like a cream, and they have good shades for a variety of skin tones. I’ve seen swatches and reviews of these highlights everywhere, and I also think these are worth the hype!
