Oh My Bodysuit!

I have been obsessing over bodysuits lately! Especially ones with a deep v cut. They are so versatile and can be paired with boyfriend jeans, denim cut-offs, skirts, pants, you name it! I can always find the hottest bodysuits from NastyGal, Forever 21, ASOS, and American Apparel. As you can tell I had a litttttle fun taking pictures, haha. Let me know what else you would like me to post!

The Makeup Product That’s A Must!

Get your hands on this product as soon as you can! The NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray is the staple in my makeup drawers. I spray this before I apply makeup, on my foundation brush, and after I’ve applied all my makeup. And wow. This spray makes my makeup look just if I’ve applied it that second. I’ll be out and 8 hours later, not one flaw. My foundation, my lipstick, and my eyeshadow will still be in place. And the best part? This spray leaves you with a dewy finish, which I love! Before I bought this product, my makeup would come off within like a couple hours. With this, I don’t even have to check up on my makeup. This is like water-proof, sweat-proof, life-proof, haha! I bought mine from Target. CVS and ULTA also carries NYX Cosmetics. This picture was taken at night, when I applied my makeup and spray in the morning. How great is that?! For the ladies that want the same effect but a more matte finish, I’ve also listed the link for that 🙂

The Bronzy, Glowy, Dewy Makeup Look

Hello my loves!

So recently I have been loving that bronzed and dewy look. Although it’s fall, I still love it. I think no matter any season, this look will always look amaze! I bought new makeup recently and you know what that meant? Playtime! Now I am nowhere near a makeup artist or even think I am talented at doing makeup, but it’s still a learning process for me, and below I will be breaking down the steps on achieving the bronzy, dewy look, just like in the pictures below. I will be organizing these makeup steps as easy as possible for you ladies, and hopefully this helps!

Let’s Begin!

First I like to spray my face with the NYX Cosmetics Dewy Finish Setting Spray for that dewy look and also priming my face. I then put a small amount of the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream on my Blending Sponge and apply to my face for a smooth canvas :). Ladies remember to always use your blending sponges damp! This will help with that whole dewy look. Next I use my Morphe Brushes MB36 Duo Blender (any foundation brush would work) and spray my NYX spray directly on the brush. I then apply my Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation on my brush and apply to my face in circles. Next I use the  MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter and highlight above my cheekbone, above my jawline, and on my forehead. I blend all this with the Morphe Brushes MB12 Pointed Foundation/Buffer. Using my Real Techniques Setting Brush, I apply the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Refill (Banana) under my eyes and above my cheekbones. Then I apply the NARS Bronzing Powder (Casino) using the Morphe Brushes M462 Duo Powder Dome, while sucking my cheeks in a little bit. Using the same bronzing powder, I use the Morphe Brushes MB4 Angle Blush/Contour to contour on my temples, forehead, jawline, and nose. Using the Morphe Brushes BK3 Chisel Blush I apply the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (Bronze)Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (Bronze) the same way I applied the bronzer. Next using the Morphe Brushes S23 Deluxe Fan Brush I apply MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Soft & Gentle) on the apples of my cheeks. Using my ring finger, I apply Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! above where I applied my bronzer. Lastly, I spray my face the the NYX Spray one more time to lock that dewy look. Phew! That was a lot of makeup and information. If my boyfriend is reading this, this is why I take forever getting ready, haha! Anyway, I hope this helped you ladies. Happy bronzing! Muah!

Favorite Nudes

No matter what season it is, or what I am wearing, or what event, I always find myself wearing one of many nude lipsticks I have. It has become an obsession! Of course, MAC nude lipsticks will always be my all-time fave, but I’ve managed to sneak in some other great brands. I love true nudes and pink nudes with depth. They match any type of makeup look and are so versatile. The liners I use with my nude lipsticks are: MAC Stripdown, MAC Oak, and MAC Whirl. Pair your favorite nudes with a clear or light pink gloss and you’re all set!
