Skincare


 I am not wearing any makeup in the left photo above and the right photo I am wearing my everyday makeup (you can find it in my previous post what products I use) I do not tan my face ever I always wear sunscreen it causes premature aging so if I do tan I cover my face with hats. About a week ago I got eyelash extensions as you can see above. I have never had them and wanted to try it out. As much as I do love them my natrual lashes are long. Would I get them again probably not but since I do love being barefaced it's great! I also got my eyebrows tinted for the first time (idk why I haven't don't it before, since I have blonde hair you can't see my brows or eyelashes much and love the result)

I think the most important thing is to have good healthy clear skin. I usually never wear makeup during the week and if you know me you probably have seen me without makeup on. I have never suffered from acne and hope I never will. The only problem I have is my skin tends to get very dry especially living in Denver. I ALWAYS moisturize. My skincare is constantly changing but as of right now I have managed to use the same products this year. 


For a face wash/scrub I use Lush products. My favorite is the Buche de Noel it is a Christmas limited edition so I stock up on it but for a substitute I use Angels on bare skin which is very similar. I use this morning and night but sometimes skip morning and use First Aid beauty face wash.

Night only: I use Chanel toner "Lotion Confort" and follow with Josie Maran Aragan oil (I only use this oil at night, during the day time it will make my face look too shiny)


After that I apply Chanel Hydra Beauty gel cream. As of right now I have switched to using Korres Greek Yoghurt sleeping facial at night and love it haven't had any reactions and Chanel in the morning.


For eye products I use Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive eye  cream my favorite eye cream it's so moisturizing! Last but not least I use Careprost eye drops on my eyelashes applied with a eyeliner brush every night. My lashes are so long because of this! It's an alternative for Latisse and a lot cheaper. You can see below how long they are! I have been using it since Feb of this year. 


Lastly I apply either Aquaphor or Nivea lip butter to my lips because you gotta have soft lips. ;) 

This is what I do every single day. I ALWAYS ALWAYS take my makeup off before bed. It is so important if you want to have healthy skin!

Bold lips


Who doesn't love a bold lip! I absolutely love the ombré lip and how it turned out. I'm using Mac Nightmoth lip pencil with Mac diva lipstick. Since the mac lipstick is matte it is so drying! In a few hours my lipstick looks horrible, makes my lips look so chapped! I found that applying lip balm (I use the Nivea lip butters) then a creamy lipstick like the YSL preferably a nude in this photo I used no'2. And vaaa laa!

I also love thick eyebrows! I have gotten a few girls saying they don't like it but I don't care I love it! I will be doing a post on how I do my eyebrows soon!

2014!

Ahh 2014! Hopefully big things will happen this year! I miss blogging, I am focusing on getting in shape before summer right now. But spring is coming and I have a lot of cute outfits I want to show!
Anyways! Happy New year. 

I actually bought my dress on Dec 31. So last minute. It was the last one in my size I had to squeeze in it, it was so tight! I got it from Nordstrom Topshop. Perfect New Year dress!

I wore it with sparkly flats also from topshop I would have worn heels but it was freezing out and so many people in downtown!

Go to look!

I just got back from a little trip. And wanted to show you guys one of the looks I did.

Products I used:
First for foundation I used Armani Luminous Silk in shade 5.75 with a flattop kabuki F80 by Sigma. For bronzer I used Mac pressed powder to contour with a small eyeshadow brush right under my cheek bone and the sides of my nose. 

After I apply Nars Laguna bronzer with a sigma small contour brush on my forehead, my temples, cheeks, and my jawline. I then used Nars luminizer in Albatross on my cheekbones just above where I applied my bronzer.


I use concealer after my foundation, I used Bobbi Brown corrector in Porcelain Peach just under the eyes where you would normally get dark spots; I applied this with my finger. Then I applied Mac Pro longwear concealer in shade Nc20. I apply this down the bridge of my nose, on my forehead, my chin, and from my eyes I apply it down to my cheekbone if that makes sense. Its kind of hard to explain how I highlight and contour. I used a beauty blender for my concealer only.

I then do my eyeshadow. Lastly I apply YSL Touché Éclat in shade 2 where i applied concealer. To set that I used Banana powder by Ben Nye with a setting brush by real techniques. 

For eye shadow I used Mac paint pot  in Painterly for a base. The eyeshadows I used were Surrender, Command and Publicize by Sigma with Mac and Sigma eyeshadow brushes. 


For my eyebrows I used Anastasia brow wiz in Soft Brown and Benefits Brow  Zing. To set I used Anastasia clear brow gel. I don't really like thin eyebrows, so I decided so make mine thicker than usual. 

-My eyebrows grow really fast and they are long also so I have to trim them a little but this time I just brushed them up and filled them in then set them in place. Basically how I got them to be more thick.

To finish the eyes I used  L'oreal Telescopic and Voluminous curved brush  mascaras. For my eye liner I used Kat Von Tattoo liner in Trooper. I also applied white eyeliner on my bottom water line by Sephora in Nano

I then apply my false lashes I used Mac lashes in 7 with Duo glue in the dark tone. (Sadly I lost my mac lashes on my trip after I took them off) they were gorgeous definitely going to buy another pair!

                            My lashes

Lastly, I used L'oreal lip liner in Timeless coral and YSL lipstick in 24. I don't use lipgloss, I don't like the glossy look and lipgloss just feels sticky to me. 

I actually did not set my foundation just my eyes. This is how I normally do my makeup, except I don't usually wear falsies. I always always highlight and contour. It may seem like a lot but I love the way it turns out!
