Moisture Bomb Mask Review- Collab with Cassixmakeup

Hey loves! This week I have collabed on a review with cassixmakeup! She has an awesome beauty blog, so definitely go check it out! I get hooked after I start reading one post then I realize I am like 10 deep! So once I saw her put out the collab request I immediately emailed her! She is so kind and sweet and I was so excited to do this collab!

So we decided on reviewing the  moisture bomb mask from Garnier and after searching for it in the skincare section for 20 minutes I began to give up… Didn’t realize they are sheet masks. So I picked a couple up! They have 3 different ones, I picked up the pink and blue which are supposed to be super moisturizing and glow enhancing. IMG_1887After testing them out I found them a little different. When I first put the mask on it didn’t really fit my big eyes and the serum was getting in my eyes. After peeling the blue sheet off the mask I was able to work with it much easier.

Please ignore my crazy hair, I had just got done scrubbing makeup off my face. I had begun halloween looks this day. After 15 minutes I took the mask off and messaged the remaining serum into my skin just as the directions stated. I have to say I really liked the masks. My skin felt revived and moisturized, especially after all the paint was removed. My skin also had a little glow to it, which is always appreciated.

Go check out Cassi’s post to see what she thought about the mask!!

Till next time loves

ps What did you think about collab posts?? Leave me comments!

Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter

Okay friends for today I wanted to bring it back to makeup after taking this week to talk about dieting and working out. I plan on making that my monday post. Moving on!

I want to talk about this really beautiful, cool putty highlighter from Stila! It comes in 3 shades as well. I have kitten photographed here.IMG_0112Bouncy-to-the-touch, these unique, radiance-enhancing highlighters are gossamer-light and melt into skin for a barely-there feel. Ultra-fine, light diffusing particles help skin look alit from within with a soft, luminous, natural-looking glow.- Ulta description. And I couldn’t say it any better myself. It really gives a beautiful glow that put on subtly can be very natural or put a little more on for a more blinding highlight. It is so versatile and fun to play with. It definitely get two thumbs up from this girl!!

Till next time loves! Please leave me comments on other products I should review and test out!

Makeup Bag Starter Kit

It seems like every woman has a different idea of what to to put in their makeup bag. As a makeup artist I have been horrified and pleasantly surprised. Some ladies carry nothing or the bare minimum and others carry their whole collection. Me personally I don’t tend to carry much in my purse or on the go but… My makeup tends to stay put. That being said I always have a makeup bag in my vanity with my favorites ready to go! So here are my picks for the perfect makeup bag/collection.

  1. This Bag Contains My Face Makeup Bag– You have to start with a good bag right? This one is super cute and not overly expensive. I love it!
  2. Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF 30 – I love this base! It is not quite as heavy as a regular foundation but still gives decent coverage and great skincare benefits! You get your sunscreen and it has dark spot correction in it. I don’t personally have dark spots but preventing them is always good too!
  3. Clinique Stay Matte Powder– This powder is the bomb. It is the perfect touch up powder and always looks good. This is one of those products I do carry everywhere.
  4. Brushes– A staple for everyone is some good brushes. Morphe has amazing brushes at a great, affordable price.
  5. L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Voluminous Feline Mascara– A good mascara is a must and this is my current go to. I love this mascara and I found it so cheap on amazon!
  6. MAC Fluidline eyeliner– I personally don’t feel complete without some eyeliner. This has been my favorite for years. If a gel liner isn’t for you then use what works or tell me in the comments and I will tell you all my other favorite eyeliners!
  7. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25, Natural Mint & Shea Butter, 0.25 oz.– This lip balm is amazing!!! I have been using it for years and it just never fails me especially for the price.
  8. Bronzer and Blush– Add some warmth, freshness, and dimension to the face. A little of either or both can really just brighten up a look. screen-shot-2017-03-06-at-9-41-51-am

I think you can stop here for a quick fresh look or you can of course go all out. If you are just starting out these products can get you going. Let me know in the comments what your favorite products are and what you keep in your makeup bag! I am obsessed with makeup so I am always looking for new products to try and share with you!
