Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I am happy I was able to get this post out, this post was long overdue. For today’s post I wanted to talk about how to contour. Contouring is a application technique used to create shadows and bring out your facial structure. This helps makes certain parts of the face stand out and also appear slimmer. The highlight part of contour and highlighting helps bring out the glow in your face of where the sun naturally hits.
So first I want to talk about the basics with contouring. When it comes to contouring you want to choose a shade that is one shade lighter down from your skin tone. Also another tip is knowing your face shape. One thing I notice a lot is that some people tend to contour the same. Your not going to want to do that. Your going to want to determine your face shape first so you know what areas to contour. For example, I have an heart shaped face so I try to always bring out my cheek bones and pay attention to around my chin area. Another tip is making sure to use the right product. But this would be all up to you!
Prime with a primer also a moisturizer for your face.
Apply your favourite foundation. With a damp beauty blender.
To contour, your going to want to follow the structure and shadows of your own face shape. If you want to define your jaw line your going to want to blend powder or cream along your jawline. If you want to bring out your cheek bones follow the same steps. Here’s another tip if you love your nose you do not need to contour your nose!
Set your make up, remember to along your T zone. Your going to want to do this with a setting powder. After setting with a powder you can set with a setting spray. Your going to just spray this and this will bring your makeup altogether!
I hope this post was helpful, I tried to get as detailed as possible. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. If any of you have any questions about contour and highlighting please leave a comment. I am always happy to help and I always love reading your comments and questions. I must say contour and highlighting (well more contouring) is one of my favourite parts to a completed makeup look. I love bringing out my natural cheek bones and just playing around with it. What are some of your favourite products for contour and highlighting? Do you find it easy or difficult when it comes to contouring? Please leave a comment, like and please share! Also if you haven’t checked out my last post you can find that HERE.
Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. For today’s blog post I wanted to share how I do my brows. My regular routine I’ve been sticking to for like forever. Now I just want to share my routine what works for me. I just wanted to share tips because this might just work for someone else or at least give them a idea on how to do their brows. Now to be completely honest with you all I never knew how to do brows, I sucked. I now know but am no make up artist, like I said I know what works for me. Now for my hack am just going to explain my routine and steps.
Some of you might know or not, but I am combination skin type. So this means am oily in my t zone. This causes my forehead area to get oily throughout the day. And this would always cause my brows and makeup in general to slide right off. Honestly this was so annoying to me, but I realized I just needed the right brow products and primer for my skin concerns. It’s all about laying down a great base for longer wear.
So you have your base, and all you need are the right products. My hack for holding down my brows and to help grip my brows is my primer. The Becca matte pore less primer. I have been using this product for awhile now and I love it. The consistency is matte and a glue like texture so it for sure does what it says. Applying this I found helps matte any oils I have around my brows and also helps keep my brows in place when I add product.
Next, the brow pencil I use to do my brows is the Benefit brow pencil. I love their product I have never had any problems and also I find it so much easy using this pencil. The product I use to use to do my brows was Anastasia. I have used the pomade and pencil and it just wasn’t for me.
After applying the matte base, my brows are so much easier to apply product to. I brush through my brows and apply! I just want to make a disclaimer that when apply a lot of this product it can leave white streaks. So a little goes a long way! After I am done all that I finish off with the benefit brow gel. That is another product I am loving.
This is my usual brow routine whenever I do my brows. I would say throughout the day my brows stay in place much better then me just applying the pencil right away without a base. I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post. Look out for me uploads during this week. Also what are some brow products you all enjoy? Or even live by? You absolutely won’t switch from ? Please let me know in the comments! And please share, like and comment! You can even let me know any hacks you have in the comments. If you haven’t read last post you can find that HERE.
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post and my first post of 2020. I just would like to say happy new year to everyone. I hope you all had a great start to the new year and I hope you accomplish all your goals. For this year i am setting goals for myself and hopefully sticking to it. I wanted to share my list and talk about some goals I wanted to achieve for this year. I have done a couple posts in the past on different goals I’ve wanted to achieve. If you haven’t read any you can find these posts on my blog site. You can type in the search bar “goals”.
Sticking to schedules
Staying up to date on social media posts
Improving my skills
Let’s face it, for some of us bloggers coming up with a marketing strategy for traffic comes easy. And for some (like me) becomes difficult. This year I’ve decided to put in more time on my blog when it comes to Pinterest and work harder in driving traffic to my page.
Sticking to schedule
One thing I really want to do, that’s always at the top of my list is sticking to my consistent schedule. Now I know I can’t get mad if I trail off. Being a mom of two a wife and a blogger is a hectic schedule. Sometimes my kids schedule just don’t fall in place with my blog schedule and posts go un typed or unscheduled. But this year I want maybe a little less of that. I want to stay consistent and organized, plan posts ahead type some up ahead so I can get more content out there. So far into 2020 I have not started this goal but here I am trying.
Staying up to date with social media
This goal kinda goes hand and hand with my goal of staying consistent. I feel like if everything isn’t staying consistent and am not posting then I won’t reach my amount of traffic I want. The most social media platform I usually fall off on random days are twitter. And this is because with Twitter you have to sit and read tweets and take time out your day to tweet. As a busy mom I don’t get much time to do this so I don’t bother to go on everyday. And for Instagram it’s the lack of finding what I want to post. Staying consistent with my colour feed making sure what I want to post goes with my feed. And to be honest it’s all hard lol.
Pinterest, the number one social media platform that every blogger is using. Also if you don’t have me yet on Pinterest please add me HERE. Now I am always trying to find time to piñon Pinterest. I love going on there for fashion inspiration or hairstyles for my girls, whenever I can grab my iPad am always pinning. But that hard thing is finding the right time to pin my content. Or even making the right blog graphics, and making sure you got a great photo. This year I want to actually sit and start making my Pinterest strategy. I never actually took the time to create one it was more when I got the time I’d just pin. But what are some strategies that worked for you all? Please let me know in the comments.
I am always trying to improve my photography skills. Especially for Instagram or even if it is for any blog content. People are always attracted to a good photo. I have came a long way with this, at the start of my blog career my photos were pretty awful on my blog. But along the way I learned how to improve my skills. But hey that’s the way we can learn and get better. I really want to improve my Instagram content a lot and gain more engagement. Hopefully I can stick to it and actually do it this year.
Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope some of my goals for this year helped you. What are some of your goals for this year? Please like, share and comment. I always love hearing your thoughts. Also if you haven’t read my latest posts please read HERE.
Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog page. Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday. I will be putting out posts for the rest of December and 2019. For today’s post I wanted to do a review on spa subscriptions a facial brand. I got a few of the products sent to me awhile back and I wanted to try it out before I talk about it. If you would like to check out the brand you can find them HERE.
Nature and science combine for skincare solutions designed to target specific skincare needs.
Developed by an expert team of researchers and chemists, SPASCRIPTIONS combines advanced technology with high-quality ingredients for a skincare range that fits into your existing skincare routine.
Unmask your natural beauty.” – Spascriptions
I received the 3 pack face masks, it’s ideal for all skin types and the package contains 3 different types of masks. You can use each masks at a time or you can use all three to target different skin issues. These products are PH balanced and is hypo – allergenic. When you receive you package each comes with an applicator which is one of the things I loved about their products. This applicator helps you easily and quickly apply your mask mess free. Spascriptions also has a 15 minute facial therapy.
“ • Cleanse and dry the face • Dip brush applicator into jar and scoop desired amount • Spread evenly over the face, avoiding eyes and lips • If applying more than one mask, wash brush between each mask application and repeat the above • Relax for 15-minutes whilst the mask works its magic • Gently rinse off remaining residue “ – Spascriptions
In my three package I received the silver mask which is the charcoal clay, a yellow royal honey and a pink which helps with collagen. So far using their products I haven’t had any problem with them. The masks are great on my skin and they haven’t caused my skin to break out whatsoever. I love how they package their products with an applicator because it’s so easy to use that to apply the products mess free. I even have been using the applicator to apply my flow recipe sleeping mask. As for results i honestly haven’t been seeing a difference in my skin. But I hardly get or have issues with my skin it’s pretty close to a normal skin type so that could be why so I wouldn’t label the products for the “not use” drawer.
Therefore Spascriptions is a pretty affordable brand you can probably find it at your nearest pharmacy store. I overall feel like the brand is okay it’s adorable and their products work great. Also they are all for all ski types so if you would like to check them out link is attached. Thanks for everyone who read today’s post. I will be uploading another post for tomorrow so look out for that. Please like comment and share! I always love reading your comments.
