My Summer Makeup Routine

Hello Everyone!

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve posted anything on my blog. I wanted to come back with a blog post that felt natural. So I wanted to share my summer makeup routine with you all.

These products have been keeping my routine super simple and fuss free. I wanted a natural look that will go well with my easy mornings. I like to keep everything stress free.

If I’m not going into the office I won’t wear a base such as foundation or CC cream. I’ll conceal all my imperfections with the Revolution pot concealer and the e.l.f hydrating camo concealer.

I always make sure to apply the e.l.f poreless putty primer on my T zone. Then I apply the Fenty gloss. Some days I’ll wear mascara and lighting do my brows. It just depends on how much time I have.

Let me know what your favorite fuss free products are?

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post!

Have a great day!

Welcome to Nyrmirez

I can’t believe this is happening! I want to welcome you back to my little corner of the Internet. This has been a long time coming and I am so excited that I can officially reclaim my voice and my blog back from the cobwebs that laid on it. I have so much to share and I hope you will all join me in this new chapter of my life. So with that being said let me reintroduce myself.

Hi! My name is Michelle and I run Nyrmirez and I am so excited to be back behind these keyboards. What can you expect as a reader… Well honesty, realness and a lot of makeup, baking, DIY’s and travel. I want this little corner of the web to be a bright and cheerful place for anyone that stumbles upon it. You can also expect some hard topics such as mental health, unhappiness and managing how to be a adult in this world. I promise to keep things fun, but genuine.

Thank you for stopping by and giving me another chance at this blogging thing.

Love,

Essences product Review

Happy Monday Everyone!

Recently I went to my local CVS and I saw they had a deal on Essence products and I decided to pick a few of them up. I wanted products that I could wear and I didn’t already own.

I ended up settling for these four products. Two mascaras, a colorful eyeliner and a lipgloss. I had high hopes that everything would work since I’ve heard good things about their mascara’s.

Both of these mascaras were a dream to apply and build up. I paired them together for a nice full lash effect and I was not disappointed.

These two products were the ones I was most excited for. I would suggest to look for other colored eyeliner if you don’t like to go over the cat eye line you created. It took multiple swipes to get a pretty even coverage.

The lipgloss was a absolute NO! I hate the smell and that was the end of that. I thought it smelled like Robitussin the cough medicine your mom made you drink when you were sick. I ended up wearing it for the pictures and if you can get past the smell it’s a beautiful shade.

Let me know your thoughts on the brand Essence. Are you a fan? What are your favorite products?

Have a wonderful day!

Today I am sharing a first impression on this product from the Ordinary. I had been seeing it all over Tik Tok and had stumbled upon it on the Ulta web page. I was intrigued by it and I did some research. Here are the benefits of this product:

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary is formulated with a combination of low, medium, and high molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, as well as a next-generation hyaluronic acid crosspolymer, at a combined concentration of 2% for multi- depth hydration. This system is supported with the addition of B5 for enhanced surface hydration.

  • Replenish lost moisture, maintain healthy-looking skin, and provide enhanced barrier support
  • PH 6.50 – 7.50
  • Cruelty-free & Vegan
  • Does not contain alcohol, gluten, nuts, oil, silicone, parabens, sulfates

I have slowly started to incorporate this product into my morning and night routine and my skin looks more hydrated and healthier. I am excited to see how this product performs in the harsh winter.

Have you tried this product out? If so what are your thoughts?

Have a great day!

At Home Manicure ft. L.A Color Nails

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a cheap and super easy to get a at home manicure for less than $2. I absolutely love doing this when I’m on a major budget and trying to save every penny I can.

I picked up these L.A Color fashion nails at my local dollar general for $1.50. I wanted to see if they were durable and fit my small nail beds. I have a hard time finding the right nail sizes when I buy more expensive nail brands.

I apply them using this Gorilla glue which cost about $5-6 depending on where you buy it. I have used this for months on many other nails and I still have half a bottle. Very well worth the investment in my opinion. This nail doesn’t ruin my own nails and is super easy to take off.

I absolutely am in love with the finished products and they will last me anywhere between 7-14 days. It all depends on how hard I use my hands (ex: washing dishes, gardening, typing on my computer).

Let me know if you are going to try this nail hack?

Have a great weekend!

E.l.f Bite Size Eyeshadow- Berry Bad-

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all this bite size eyeshadow from e.l.f. I have been seeing these all over social media and I wanted to try a few of them myself.

I created a pretty bold look to test out how these shadows worked. The matte shadow blended out beautifully. The shimmer ones had a bit of some fall out which meant that I had to do some cleaning after I applied the shadows.

Overall once I handled the fall out situation I was very pleased with the colors and how affordable the shadows performed for the price point.

I hope you all enjoyed this look. Let me know if you all have tried out any of these shadows?

Have a great day!

Halloween Costume: Minnie Mouse with a twist

Happy Monday Everyone!

Halloween is just around the corner and I have a few special looks for you. My first one is a Minnie Mouse look with a bit of a dark twist. I hope you enjoy.

Start off with a super simple makeup look. Focus the look on the eyeliner and red lipstick for a more Minnie Mouse inspired feel.

I purchased my accessories from Spirit Halloween and the dress is from Target. You can leave it alone and have a tradition look or take it up a notch and make it dark.

I created a base out of hot glue for my broken sword so it could give the effect that I had been stabbed and I hadn’t taken it out yet.

Attach your plastic handle on with spirit gum and hold for 10 minutes until it is attached to your skin. This is a very annoying step, but trust me it’s worth it. Once it’s stuck onto your skin conceal with foundation and add fake blood to make it look realistic.

I hope you all enjoyed this creative take on Minnie Mouse. It’s super simple and a unique way to dress up as your beloved mouse.

Have a great day!
