Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone is had a great weekend. For today’s blog post I wanted to do my beauty routine. And I thought of to post my 5 -15 min beauty routines. This is a great post for those beauty college students or even moms like me that is on the go. Now since becoming a second time mom I have absolutely no time to put on make up.
For example the other day I actually had to ask myself “do I even know how to apply makeup still?”. Yeah it’s that bad, I miss those times. I see all these social influence’s moms looking fab and I need their secrets on how. But then again have to remind myself it’s all a lie! LOL not realistic at all. Now when I am in a rush I need to at least do these steps!
Now since am a busy mom of two, I have no time to even perfect foundation anymore and do a whole beauty routine, so concealer has become a back up. I actually do not have bad skin at all so I always use concealer and do quick touch ups on my face. My skin looks great and it still can breath throughout the day. Now for this trick you’d need a great coverage concealer.
For some odd reason I never before was brow obsessed. Now I have to at least do my brows if am going out. If I don’t get to apply concealer this has to be at least done. I feel like doing brows just frames a girls face and hides everything else. This I always try and get done when I am in a huge rush to go out. And sadly I always feel like am in a rush.
Lipstick or Gloss
Okay, every girl has at least this on. Even if I don’t got my lipstick on I have to have my Rihanna fenty gloss. To be honest lately I haven’t been wearing lipstick. And I don’t know if it has to do with me not putting on a full face anymore. But I’ve haven’t touched any lipstick for awhile. I have tried sometimes putting some on and I always end up taking it off . I love using the Fenty gloss though because I love how clear and simple yet tinted it is. It gives a beautiful finish and it actually keeps my lips moisturized.
So basically if concealer is out of my timing I always almost always have to have my lashes. Honestly if I had to name my top two I can’t leave the house without doing it would be lashes and brows. Anyways before I was into lashes but I love wearing them most of the time now. I love how much they bring out my eyes without having to wear a full face or even eyeshadow. I have them last long which keeps me from spending so much money on buying them.
Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope my 5 to 15 minute beauty routine some what helps you. This is what 90% of the time I do now a days because I am always in a rush. You don’t specifically have to follow my routine, you can find what works for you. If you haven’t got to read my latest post please do so you can find this HERE.
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product. And wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.
So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer. For a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve stuck to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup, not make my face look or feel dry. The becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer, at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked. And it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try. I needed a primer and I had no second choice t to be honest lol. You can find the product here on sephora.
The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer. This product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things I love about the product is it has aloe water in it. And it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin. Pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product. And a little goes a long way with this product, which is a bonus.
After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended. . The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up. I didn’t have my foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types. And how my make up may look hours later yours may look different. so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it gets oily. But hopefully this product helps with that issue.
If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7, just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it. And wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments. I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!
Good morning everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Friday everyone I hope everyone had a pretty chill week? This week for me has been hectic it’s crazy, am currently in the process of moving and I have been busy trying to organise everything especially the way I want lol you already know moving and with small kids equals mess and I don’t do well with mess. Then also I have been slightly sick this week “yay for me” that has been tough also my six month old too and then my husband has severe allergies so my house hold at the moment is crazy. I’m surprised I even could type this out with the way am feeling and praying I get sleep tonight from my six month old. But for today’s blog post I just wanted to do a quick review on a product I got as a sample of and I never used it up until yesterday and I instantly fell in love with it.
The product is called Green Clean, I haven’t heard of it until I got it as a sample in my Ipsy monthly make up bag. For awhile I had the product just laying around until yesterday I decided to get it a try, the product is a make up melt away balm and yesterday I was in the worst mood and just wanted my make up off asap and decided to give it a try. Now so far personally I haven’t came across any great make up removers other then Dermalogica pre cleanse, this is one of the best make up removers its not just a make up remover but a cleanser as well I would highly recommend trying this product out!
So not only do I love the bottle packaging but I love the texture of the product as well, it does come off like it said as a balm form its really soft and comes off as creamy when applying to your face with water. Now that wasn’t the only thing that caught my attention when trying out the product I also noticed the smell of the product, it is more of a mint smell to it and it wasn’t to strong as well. It was not to strong of a mint smell or to light just enough to notice when applying to your skin and I absolutely love it. Now with the product I only have about a sample size (as you see in the pic) but what I love is with this product is ” a little bit goes a long way” . I grabbed about three small amounts to my finger tips and worked it around on my face and it got a good amount of make up off my face, I was actually quite impressed to be honest and you wouldn’t even need to apply more after I rinsed off that portion I continued rinsing and just that amount lifted most of my make up off.
This product is for normal to oily skin type, it helps with dryness, uneven skin tone and dullness of the skin. The top highlighted ingredients in the product are sunflower and ginger root oil, this is what helps melt away your stubborn make up. This product also helps remove impurities and gently exfoliates the skin! This is an absolute plus for me as I didn’t even know this. You can find this brand simply at your local sephora! I can say I will be buying the full bottle of this and add it to my daily skin re gamin. Thank you for reading and I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! If any of you have tried this product out let me know your thoughts about the product, or even if you haven’t if your going to try it out. Remember to like and comment I always love hearing from you all! Hope you all have a great relaxing weekend.
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Happy Tuesday I hope everyone weekend went well? I sadly had to schedule Monday post for today because of mom life taking over on Sunday, that I honestly forgot to plan and schedule my post. Sunday was simply not my dad it was super busy, but I am happy I got it up now. For today’s blog post I wanted to do an review on the Fenty foundation. I wanted to give my honest opinion on the product since I’ve got to use it a couple times now.
Awhile back I purchased the Fenty Beauty pro filter soft matte long wear foundation, it’s known for a soft matte build-able coverage. Also comes in 50 shades, I have purchased the colour 410. I wanted to give this foundation a try due to me loving the Fenty glosses and the foundation seemed light, also this foundation was matte and am a sucker for matte foundations. I also saw how it was for combination skin types which I am so I decided why not? I purchased the colour in 410 because my skin number I got matched with matched me with that and I saw it somewhat matched my skin tone. Despite it chose that colour I feel like it’s not exactly my skin shade to get it to blend well I have to buff it out a couple times. I also found the shade really bright and comes off really yellow and to tell you the truth I hate foundations that come off with a strong yellow undertone, I find those are the ones that leave you with the “mask” look. The foundation felt light and I found it did give a matte finish, and little goes a long way. I overall ended up somewhat disliking but I feel it was more to Sephora recommending the wrong shade but I feel like it’s because it’s the closest shade to me. I usually use to highlight areas on my face, other then that it’s pretty much less used. I wouldn’t say the foundation is awful but I am currently not loving how this shade blends with me, if this is the only shade for me I don’t see myself using this foundation.
Thanks for reading my review, if you’ve have purchased this foundation what are your thoughts on it? Is it your fav? I love to hear your thoughts, next planned blog post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST!
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was super busy but at least has Sunday to relax a bit and unwind. Its a full busy week for me though hopefully I can get everything needed done. I wanted to start the week off with a current “whats in my makeup bag” post, I have done one a while back and wanted to do an updated one as because a makeup bag never stays the same am I right?
So one thing I have realised is I carry so much more in my makeup bag then before. I believe because of current product obsession and also maybe because of the current season? I live in Toronto, ON so it is currently winter so every season I only carry around products I need or currently need that specific day.
Whats in my makeup bag? So first thing I absolutely need always when am out is the current lipstick or gloss I am wearing that day of course in case I need to reapply. Also what I always need next is sometimes I carry around tissue, the reason is to blot, throughout the day I sometimes get a bit oily around my T zone and chin area and I hate walking around without touching up my face. Another top need is my lash glue, I now wear lashes every time I do a full on face or even if i just do my brows I have to have lashes on. In case a lash pops off I always make sure to have my lash glue. Those are all my top beauty must haves in my make up bag that has to always be there no matter what season, I even keep a lip balm in my bag for dry lips to apply before my lipstick or even if though out the day I dont want lipstick on anymore and just a balm its there. That should be in every beauty bag especially in the winter.
For the other beauty products I have that usually do change related to season, is I always have different primers in my make up bag. This is usually a change for me on mood, if I feel like using one primer I haven’t to in awhile id use it also it depends how my skin is feeling. But the top primer I usually use 90% of the time is the Becca matte primer, this helps me not get a oily face though out the day. So in my beauty bag I also usually have my brow essentials laying in there that isn’t a beauty must I need through out the day but I usually say to myself ” What if I need to fix my brows?” and so because of that I walk around with that also. But to be honest I do carry around a bunch of random things in my beauty bag I dont really need. When I am applying make up I sometimes use products and just then dump it into my bag and I then just leave it and because of this when I do carry around my bag its just packed with some products I dont even need or least at the time. One of the things I noticed I have a lot in my beauty bag is moisturiser I carry around different kinds and this is because of what I just explained, at this time its not so much a bad thing because its currently winter here in Toronto, ON and its pretty bad at the moment and its always good to keep moisturised.
I always love keeping a good mascara in my bag also, and I honestly dont need that around but I love collecting beauty samples from Sephora and I love trying out new mascaras am currently loving the Marc Jacobs one. And I always just throw them into my make up bag as a current habit. A non beauty item I love keeping is a good hair tie, yes I carry around a hair tie this is because anytime I am out and am annoyed of my hair or I need to tie it up I always got one on me. And I know id end up needing one because there has been a couple times when it came in handy. Well ! that is pretty much it for whats in my make up bag, its not a big bag so I do not keep that much in there but hopefully what I may keep in there could help one of you with yours! Also I know again I have been late with Monday post due to being a mom and being sleep deprived hopefully I can get back on track and get my blog posts done by Sunday I hope everyone understands. I hope you guys have a great rest of your Tuesday !
