7 Products for a Fresh Face

February 22, 2017

Hello Everyone!!!

Happy Wednesday....HUMP DAY my friends and we are halfway to the weekend!!

Today I am sharing the TOP 7 Products That Give You A Fresh Face For Spring!!! Every year we start to enter spring, I crave a fresh face look. Lets be honest, I love natural looking makeup. I love easily achievable looks and these 7 products I believe are amazing products to help you achieve that fresh faced look!!

1. I never believed I would like foundation stick until I tried the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation. I am in the shade Y315. I seriously ADORE this foundation! It has a beautiful natural finish, medium to buildable coverage, with a more dewy finish. This makes the skin look plump, youthful, and soft. I absolutely love this foundation blended out with a beauty blender. 

2. This Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder is a newer product to me. I am NOT a powder girl because it always dries my skin out by the end of the day. This powder however gives sheer coverage, sets my foundation and concealer, and gives a beautiful luminosity to the skin so I don't lose that dewy fresh faced look. Its a great powder!

3. Nars Soft Matte Concealer is another newbie to my makeup hoarding collection and this one gave me a surprise. I was really curious about this one hearing kind of mixed reviews from others. The word "matte" kind of put the thought in my head that I wasn't going to like this but after trying it I think its a really great concealer. It is SUPER creamy and great coverage for the undereyes. I do suggest setting this with a powder. I wouldn't say it is super "matte" but more of a creamy natural finish. 

4. Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel....is the ultimate for cream bronzers and a fresh faced look!! This gives a gorgeous warmth to the skin keeping it looking youthful and dewy but not greasy. The formula is almost like a cream to powder gliding so smoothly and blends so easily on the skin. Its truly a winner!

5. Last year Nars launched this blush in their spring line called Impassioned and quickly brought it back from high demand to be part of their permanent line. I know when I saw this in store it immediately caught my attention and I purchased it without any question. Its a beautiful cool-toned dusty pale pink color. It looks so pretty and romantic on the cheeks and just makes your fresh faced look come alive!

6. An oldy but a goody in my book is the MAC Prep + Prime highlighting pen in Radiant Rose. This is a pink toned twist up brush tipped highlighter that has the most amazing lightweight consistency. I think highlighting the face with this gives you such an alive and awake look. I love using this underneath my concealer and in my inner corner (aka my caverns) to kind of correct any dark circles I have!! Its a great and easy product to use!

7. Last but not least MAC Fix +...It has been in my life forever and I have been through bottles and bottles. Finishing your look with this takes away any cake-face look and gives your skin a fresh not flat look. It really is the finishing touch. I love carrying this around with me incase my skin is feeling a little dried out...spritz spritz and I am good to go!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!! Make sure to leave YOUR fresh faced products down below! I would love to know what they are! XO

Lace & Ruffles

February 20, 2017

Hey Everyone!!!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and if you get a long weekend...I hope you are still enjoying your long weekend! We had amazing weather here in the Chi!! Unfortunately, I was hit with the flu that my little guy had earlier in the week. I was stuck in bed but luckily my husband got to take E out and get lots of park and play time!!

Today I wanted to share with you this ADORABLE lace top. Let me tell you, I am obsessed with the cut of this top. Now, I am not into crop tops....I feel like that is not "mom" appropriate. This top has a slight crop feel but it is long enough to wear it covers everything and looks SO flattering with high-waisted jeans. 

This is a great top for spring and even into summer!! I can't wait to wear it over and over!

Thanks for visiting! XO

I am super excited for this weekend....not only because its the weekend but because its going to be 60 OUT!! My house has been plagued with flu all week and we are finally feeling better (although I am the only one without the flu so I am scared it will come to me and of course during the weekend YIKES)

I am super excited for a fun long weekend outside to get fresh air and maybe some workouts in! I also wanted to share some things I have my eye on...including a sale at Abercrombie. I know I have been like ONLY wearing Abercrombie...but it's because I've been literally only buying from Abercrombie hahaha They just have so many cute things. I actually just found out they have been closing down a lot of stores. It makes me sad! 

Also this sweatshirt is my perfect MOM sweatshirt! I've been wearing them non-stop! The pink is sold out but the stripes is still available. Honestly you can't go wrong with an oversized sweatshirt any day!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! XO

New From Pixi By Petra!

February 16, 2017

Hello Everyone!!
So today's post contains some amazing new products from Pixi By Petra which you can get at Target. I have been liking a lot of their products lately and they graciously sent me this ginormous box with all these amazing new collaboration products!!! I was shocked and excited and literally had to rip open the box. They didn't ask me to share or talk about this...but after swatching and playing around...I HAD TO SHARE!!! 

Pixi collaborated with It's Judy Time, Aspyn Novard, Maryam Maquillage, and Caroline Hirons. These group of ladies did an astonishing job! So I used the products in a chit-chatty GRWM/Reviews and then I have some swatches below!!

So It's Judy Time came out with an eyeshadow palette and a lip palette!! The first thing I dug into was the eyeshadow palette naturally. These shadows are more on the warm side of neutral which I think appeal to a large audience. The pigmentation and buttery softness on these shadows are ON point! They blend beautifully! They have a great array of matte and shimmer shades and a wide arrangemet of soft to deep to create an everyday to smokey look. 

The Lip palette is very nice! I do like the color range in the palette. Although I have never used a lip palette. I don't know HOW much I will personally use this since my job is not makeup artistry. If you watch this in the video you will see how I feel about the formula (all good things) but I have to say I love that I can kind of layer these and get a custom color!! To me this is unnecessary to own but a lot of fun to play around with!!

Aspyn Novard came out with 2 Highlighters and a Glowy Blush....THIS you need. The highlight in London Lustre is a soft pearl shade, Santorini Sunset is a soft golden shade, and Rome Rose is a rosey pink blush with gold shimmer. If there is anything from this collection you need...It's the highlighters! These 3 are buttery, soft, smooth, pigmented. They blend easily and you can build them to super intense or apply lightly and get a subtle glow. These are by far the best highlighters that I have tried from the drugstore!! Good Job Aspyn! :)

Maryam came out with these 2 face palettes: a Strobe & Sculpt and a Strobe & Bronze Palette! The formula is super smooth and pigmentation is very intense. Sometimes to me that can intimidate me especially with a contour shade. I did have a little trouble blending the contours and they were a little warm on me. The highlights and strobing powders are fantastic! They were a little chalkier than the individual highlights above but still great quality!

Lastly Caroline came out with this Double Cleanse skincare item. The skincare lover inside was really excited about this. One side is a solid cleansing oil (almost like a cleansing balm) and the other side is a cleansing cream! I haven't tried this yet actually though! I am super excited to and will keep you all updated!

Make sure to check out my video applying these products! If anything is a must, I would say grab the highlighters and the eyeshadow palette...because we could all use another highlight and eyeshadow palette in our lives (I know I know, I am an enabler!)

Thanks so much for visiting! XO

Kissable Lip Combos

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite lip liner/lipstick (or liquid lipstick) combos!! A kissable lip is definitely necessary on a day like today!! Although not all of these are transfer proof, they do make your lips look pouty and kissable!!!!

Influenster sent me a couple of the new Bite Beauty lip liners along with their matching lipstick and I have to say.....they are completely amazing!!!

1. My favorite combo lately. It Cosmetics YLBB in Buff NudeMac Creme D' Nude. These are oldies to me but goodies!!! I pulled them out recently and have just been loving a good nude lip!! These are perfection and let me tell you that lip liner doesn't budge!!

2. This is one combo I received from Influenster and I ADORE this one! This is the Bite Beauty Lip liner in 020 and the matching Amuse Bouche lipstick in Honeycomb!! I LOVE this nude! Its has a hint of pink and a hint of brown making this super wearable. It feels absolutely amazing on the lips!!!

3. Another Bite Beauty Lip liner in 044 and Lipstick in Whiskey. Now I will say, this isn't my typical lip. Actually I tried this lip on and it doesn't suit me very well, but I KNOW (and have seen) many girls rocking this lip and it looks SO good on them!!! So if you have a thing for sexy vampy lips....Whiskey is necessary for your life ;)

4. Another perfect nude combo. MUFE Aqua Lip in 3C and Bareminerals Matte Liquid Lip in Wink. Wink to me is almost too nude to wear on its own but paired with this lip liner underneath...it is magic!! This lip liner can give the appearance of the poutiest, fullest lips ever! Who needs lip injections with you have this!?

5. For the mauvey girl, this one is for you. MAC Whirl lip liner is my all-time FAVE...I literally wear it with everything! I paired it with this liquid lipstick by Jouer in the shade Melon. It is a mauvey-nude (because nudes are my life) but this give a little more color to the lips. I think this one is the perfect date night for Valentine's Day

I hope you all enjoyed this kissable lip combo post!!! Thanks to Influenster for sending me such amazing products! XO
