Elf Prism Palette Smokey Eye (+playlist)

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

I'm baaaack!

I'm finally better! I have finished moving, and I am settling in here at the new house pretty well. I kicked some major bronchitis ass thanks to lots of mucinex and an inhaler! I had no idea that breathing in so much ammonia could actually kill someone. Ugh. To celebrate turning a new chapter, I am planning on setting up my very first battlestation! (Oh, yeah!) So when it's finished, I'll gladly take pics and show you guys a cheap way to get one set up! So much awesome is happening, and I'm very fortunate to be able to share these things with you. Next week, Kat and I will be doing some hands-on research and development for our cosmetic line, and I'm more excited about that than I am for Christmas to arrive!


I'm also pretty happy about the new place of residence. My room is HUGE. I can do multiple cartwheels in it. My new roommate is a super chill and CLEAN person. She treats me like a friend, which is something I haven't experienced in almost a year. It's an awesome feeling to come home and actually be greeted in a friendly manner. I'm still getting used to it, but it's a huge mental and emotional relief. She's financially responsible too. I'm not used to that either, but it's a relief as well.


I missed you guys so much that I actually filmed 8 tutorials in the past 2 nights. I will be uploading very soon!

You guys will be meeting 2 lovely ladies who will be guest blogging here on the site. One, is my roommate Kat. The other is my good friend Jen. I will also be using their lovely faces for a few tutorials. I have been doing lactic acid treatments on Jen, and her skin just glows! We will be posting a video tutorial for at home LA treatments in the next week or two. Be on the lookout for it! If you guys have any questions or requests, please feel free to email me!

Miss You Lovelies! And Thanks for Over 200,000 Hits!

Hey Beauties! 
I have been MIA for a while, and I wish that I wasn't. I have been forced to move, due to my health and disrespectful roommates. Due to the unclean living conditions at the previous apartment, I had a terrible lung infection that turned into a bout with Bronchitis. I had an ugly allergic reaction to ammonia and It has lasted weeks, and in fact is currently still making me miserable.  I'm starting to feel better, so as soon as I fully recover, I will be back! I have so many things in store for you guys! I met a few photographers, models, and have recieved numerous messages from models that were a part of a local photography group that I was once a part of stating that they would enjoy my services further, I am working on a cosmetic line with a friend of mine to be debuted in the next few months, and I will have a few Guest Bloggers for you guys! I am super excited, and everything is awesome right now! I am also contemplating posting a page on Fashion for you all! I hope that you guys are just as excited as I am about all of the new things to come! My dream is to make this blog as helpful and awesome as possible! Also, I want to thank you for viewing my blog this past year! I have had over 200,000 hits! This past year has been such a busy one for sure! Thank you, thank you everyone! I can't wait to show you all of the cool things I'm planning!

A Video Tutorial on How I Get My Basic "Flawless Skin" Look, Feat. Elf's HD Mattifying Cream Foundation!

I have had so many people ask me what products I use on my face to achieve a "flawless" face. My skin is no where near being flawless by any means! However these products do help to achieve a natural and gorgeous look with hardly any effort, so kudos for these cosmetics!

Just Fab deal! 2 Pairs of shoes Buy One, Get One Free! They Have Boots!

Oh boy, do I love me some boots for Fall! I no longer have a pair of tall boots, and since I own so many pairs of skinny jeans, I've been on a hunt for THE PAIR. Not just any pair of boots, mind you! I'm talking "Sole mates." Lol, get it? Soul? Sole? Anywhoo, I digress. I really need to pick up a pair of boots to wear with my jeans, and all I have here are sneakers, flip flops and pumps. On my search for discounted shoes, I stumbled across a site called Just Fab, and saw that they have boots for $40! What's even better, is the fact that they have a Buy One, get One sale running right now! I can't really decide on 2 pairs, so I'm probably going to wear a blindfold, have my roommates spin me around in circles and then whichever pairs I point to on the screen will be ones to carry me through this Fancy Fall Style Season.

The boots are going to go pretty fast, so I'm going to give you guys a head's up:

Here's the link to the site: Boots, Flats and Heels!!!!

Here's a few pics of what's on the BOGO sale. (Note: there are way more than I took screenshots of!)








I do believe that they have a BOGO sale ALL OF THE TIME. (If not, then they do for new accounts!)


Well, now I'm going to go and play eenie, meenie, miney, moe...


Have any of you ordered from this site? I've heard great things about it on many occasions, but I'd kept forgetting to check it out!

NEW Elf Prism palettes! (Tutorial using Sunset)

I use my baked palettes all of the time, but now I'm more than just impressed with Elf! You won't believe how pigmented, gorgeous, stunning, shiny and long lasting these are!

The formula is almost a cream. It's soft, silky, smooth and blends with ease. These are absolutely NOTHING like the standard Elf palettes!

Elf HD Mattifying Cream Foundation Review!

This is honestly the first time that I've ever tried a "cream" foundation. As a woman of almost 30 years of age, I am showing signs of aging. Due to this, I was highly skeptical of using any kind of cream foundation. The last thing I want is to have the product settle in my wrinkles and give the illusion that they are worse than they actually are. I was also afraid that it would be greasy, and cakey/heavy.
My assumptions have been incredibly wrong! This is a very light formula with medium coverage. I noticed that it blended incredibly easy, a little product would cover my entire face, and it gave my face more of an even pigmentation. It's creamy, but not at all greasy or heavy. It feels somewhat like a moisturizer without the shine. It has given my face the appearance of smaller pores, and I'm glad that it's oil free so that it will NOT clog them! I had applied this and wore it to work for 2 days in a row. I have received nothing but compliments on my facial skin and my eyeshadow. It looks so natural, and I don't have to apply a powder to "set" the product. I also have a habit of putting my face in my hands while waiting for a call on the job, and this didn't rub off onto my hands nor onto the collar of my white dress shirt. My roommates said that it made me look younger due to the fact that it gave me an "airbrushed and even" kind of look. I don't even feel like I am wearing any product at all! Overall my skin looks healthy and refreshed.
This makes me feel so "hip," that I can't see past my pelvis. I think it's safe to say that Elf has been stepping up their game and I'm excited to see what future products they have in store for us! I'm anxiously awaiting new Studio Line products!
On a scale of 1-10, this product is "the shit!"

Pics below!





I also purchased the shade in Coco, and it blends seamlessly and naturally as a wonderful contour product!
This is my Holy Grail Foundation. For Forever. If Elf ever discontinues this, I'll cry myself to death.

[NOTD] Kleancolor Black + Blue-Eyed Girl!

I wanted to share a super cheap but wonderful quality nail polish brand with you guys! Kleancolor nail Laquer! I am super happy with the selection and price as well as the quality! I pay about $12.00 including shipping for 8 colors every week or so. The brand has worked wonderfully for me. It has lasted about a week with no chipping with a good top coat. I decided that I wanted to share with you the combination that I used today, so here's for Black and Blue-eyed Girl!

Super Quick Smoky Eye Tutorial (Purple)

I have been so excited to feature the Elf Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks for a bit now, and so without further adieu...here's a very quick smoky eye look featuring one of these wonderful little products!


Products Used:
Elf Mineral Infused mascara, Elf Mineral Eyeshadow in natural, Royal and Girly, Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer in Sheer, Elf Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Check Me Out, Elf Cream Eyeliner in Black, Elf Studio Blush in Berry Merry, Elf Mineral Lip Gloss in Pageant Princess


Step 1: Prime your eyelids. This is absolutely essential! The Eyeshadow Sticks are very creamy, and this will prevent them from creasing. 

 Step 2: Cover your entire eyelid with the Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Check Me Out. This doesn't have to be done perfectly, the messier the better! (We will be blending it in)

 Step 3: Using a brush or the pads of your ring ringer, gently blend the color in.
 Step 4: Take the Mineral Eyeshadow in Royal, and apply all over your eyelid.

 Step 5: Apply the Mineral Eyeshadow in Girly to the top of the Royal shade. (Where your skin tone and the edge of the Royal meet) Blend this really well for a subtle and soft line.

 Step 6: Apply the Mineral Eyeshadow in Natural to your brow bone as a highlight. Blend it gently into the top of the Girly shade for a nice smooth color transition.

 Step 7: Using the Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick again, make a smudged-like line under your waterline.

 Step 8: Using the Cream Eyeliner in Black, line your upper lash line. (And bottom if you'd like. I did not for this tutorial because I wanted a softer look)

 Step 9: Coat your beautiful lashes with the Mineral Infused Mascara.

 Step 10: For the cheeks, I wanted a berry shade to compliment the deep purple on my eyes, but I didn't want to "overdo" it. I chose Elf's Studio Blush in Berry Merry. (A gorgeous shade that looks amazing on ANY skin tone!)
 Step 11: To top off this look, I wanted an innocent pink shade for my lips. For this I swept Elf's Mineral lip Gloss in Pageant Princess on my lips. It was perfect!




I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial! Have you tried Elf's Mineral Eyeshadow yet? What about the Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks? If so, what do you like and dislike about them?
