My Favorite High-end Highlighters

IMG_0253

Happy Monday Everyone!

This past weekend I went to a local beauty convention and it got me thinking about how when I started my makeup journey I didn’t know how to distinguish between what kind of product was going to work with my skin and the products that the beauty gurus were “selling me”. I am easily steered into peer pressure and ended up buying product that completely sucked. If I had to tell my younger self what products I should be investing in I would want her to know this about high-end highlighters.

Highlighting can be such a intimidating thing so start with a versatile product that will give you more bang for your buck. I do have to point out that the highlights I mention come from my collection and there are plenty of other great highlights, but these are the ones I wish I knew about sooner.

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette will provide you all you need until you are ready to move onto a more power punching highlight. This palette has three shades that can be used all over the skin. It’s soft enough to be worn every day and can be built upon each other to create a more dramatic look for school dances and parties.

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlight is a next level highlighter. It brings two different tones that allow you to mix and create a really show stopping look. The Mean Money highlighter can be worn every day and if you mix it with Hu$tla Baby it creates a really show stopping look.

This Dose of Colors Highlighter by the Desi X Katy is one of my absolute favorites. This highlighter look a bit dark in the pan, but when applied to my skin it’s absolutely stunning. If I build it up it definitely is a show stopper.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post style.

Let me know what other beauty product I should do next?

Have a great weekend and I will see you all on Monday!

2017 Beauty Favorites

IMG_0266

Happy Monday Everyone!

Happy 2018, I can’t believe that 2017 has come to a close and that we are starting a new year once again. I am excited for the plans I have for this year. I am also excited to see how my makeup routine evolves as this year goes on. In the last 12 months I have fallen in love with red lips, illuminated skin and glittery eye looks. I can honestly tell you that will not be the case come 2018. As humans we tend to switch things up based on where we are in life and how we want to feel.

With that being said here are 17 products I loved in 2017, enjoy!

The Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Girl Next Door and Chic Phreak was such a pleasant surprise.

If you are looking for a new highlighter for the Holidays this is the one you want to pick up. My favorite thing about this highlighter is how much you can built it up if you want to. The beauty of this product is you get two product that you can wear separately or together for a added Umph.

UD Naked Heat Palette

IMG_2164

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a new love in my life. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I am absolutely in love with all of the colors. This palette has me so ready for Fall! I will be creating a few eye makeup looks with this bad boy, but I had to share how beautiful it is. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Is this palette worth buying? The colors this palette brings together aren’t anything new. You can probably find many similar shades in your makeup collection. The beauty of this palette is that they are all together and the pigmentation is solid. If you aren’t a fan of orange toned shades this isn’t the palette for you. A few of these colors tend to look very similar once on my eye lid, but I’m okay with that because I would never pair them together in one eye look. I think you should at least swatch this and then decide.

My Favorite Mini’s

IMG_2287

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I want to share with you some of my favorite mini products. Is it just me or is everything better miniature? These are products that I have obtained from kits that I have purchased or freebies from a purchase that I made.

IMG_2274

My obsession with lip products is real!The Smashbox formula is one of my favorites and I have recently become obsessed with the Stila Stay all day formula.  I love that these are travel friendly and compact. The best part is that they have lasted quite a while with me using them daily.

IMG_2277

I love these two holy grail products. They have been some of my favorites for years and I always manage to get these mini’s every time I buy products. I can’t rave enough about the Too Faced shadow insurance. It is amazing for gals with oily lids. The same goes for the Origins GinZings eye cream. I absolutely love what this cream does for my under eyes.

IMG_2278

This is my favorite blush and highlighter duo, and I just recently discover it. Believe it or not I just tried the NARS Orgasm Blush and I am absolutely in love. Then when I paired it with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector and I was absolutely blown away.

IMG_2286

Last but not least is this Estee Lauder Foundation with the RealTechniques mini blending sponge. The combination of these two things are just golden in my book. This foundation has such amazing coverage and this sponge helps me blend my foundation and concealer near my eyes in ways I could not do so using a brush.
