In Full Bloom | Rose Embroidery

Hello My Beauties,

Thank you for coming back to my blog. I have been obsessed recently with anything that is rose or floral, its so dainty and cute. This new embroidery trend looks much more refined and expensive. So get ready to embrace jewel toned stitches this season! I for sure see myself wearing embroidered everything. 

I think the use of embroidered appliques which have much more depth to them is more fun than patterned fabric. The stitched flowers and textiles are nearly three dimensional and really catch the light, showing off their exquisite detailing.It is a remarkable way to tie in summer to the collections. Today I’m wearing a black crop top from ZAFUL with rose going down on it and I paired with a Moto Denim skirt from TOPSHOP. The roses are so pretty and they are so flattering. It has a Flare sleeves with rose embroidered, the detailing is gorgeous and I think spring/summer deserves an eye-popping bouquet of flowers. From that scene-stealing summer party dress, to the Formica prints that will energize your new season  begins with bold blooms. The normally floral-esque designs  were even more stunning this season thanks to the use of embroidered flowers.

For me the throwback style has never felt more right now. I’m loving the Contemporary fashion inspired by ethnic silhouettes and details but yeah just don’t go floral from head to toe. Mix your styles with other fashion styles to come up with your own chic, updated, fun looks. Hope you enjoy the blog and and keep your eye out for flowing patterns and flowering petals of thread during your next shopping trip. Get ready to see more flower embroidered clothes in the blog hehe, I know I’m just obsessed.

Off-The-Shoulder Top & Denim

Hello My Beauties,

Today I thought I will share my favorite trend right now i.e Off The Shoulder Tops. They are everywhere , i’m obsessed with them and i feel like they are here to stay for a while. So, no longer a trendy item we can almost classified them as a staple. Since its debut, the style has evolved to take the form of a variety of new silhouettes that you absolutely must know about. There are one-shoulder, cutout, asymmetrical, and strappy counterparts that are just as stylish. I like this particular one from American Eagle and I like to styled it with a high waist blue denim.  This top features a drawstring at the chest for an adjustable fit that can be worn on or tugged in. I love the fact that it has a tie-front, short bell sleeves and ruffle trim.

With the rapid expansion of a trend like this, it seems only natural that it would eventually die down, but exactly the opposite has happened with the off-the-shoulder craze. In other words, it’s a style that flatters a wide range of body types, a contrast to other recent fads. That was a reason not just to dip a toe in the trend by offering a few pieces, but to really run with it.

Part bohemian, part austere, the ideal style has a structured bodice and If you buy one top this season, make it an off-the-shoulder one. Monochrome with denim is always a good idea. I had a lot of fun coming up with this look along with American Eagle and I hope you loved it too.

Beauty Blender | Why I Reach Them More Than A Brush

Hello My Beauties,

 
Today I’m going to talk about Beauty Blender and why I reach them more then a brush!
So to begin, well I use them doing everything while I’m applying foundation, concealer, cream bronzer, baking my under-eye and any other complexion product! This is my all time favorite beauty product. If you don’t know what a beauty blender is – it is a sponge applicator and a non-latex foam to apply makeup. 

The Beauty blender brand is the original one and there are lot of copies that have come out after this but for me personally I have tried the other ones and nothing works quit as same as the original one. This has some secrete formulation and is totally latex free. Latex absorbs the makeup and most of the dupes are made of latex that’s the reason they absorbs half the makeup into it, when you will try the dupes half face and trying the original one on the other half you will notice that none of them will give you the finish, also this is very soft and squeeze. Others feels like a hard latex sponge and don’t give that flawless application. It is worth to spend the money then buying 3-4 dupes which wears out easily after few weeks.
But if you have one and you must be wondering why does everyone says this is best tool out there and sometime you will be like maybe I’m not using it right or is it worth the money? So just want to share with you little bit about them.
So first they come with different colors and it looks small before you wet them. When you run under the water it starts to puff up a little bit, squeeze out the excess and dry out with a paper towel or towel. So when you apply makeup with a beauty blender it gives a flawless, streak-less and a airbrush makeup look , it doesn’t look heavy or cakey.
 

Brushes Vs Beauty Blender: 
Now there are many high end brushes that works great with different foundation but I prefer beauty blender because you are pressing it into the skin so you are going to feel it covering all the pores 360 degrees as well as any other acne scares because face is multi-dimensional and brush will give you brush strokes. Unlike brush it doesn’t look heavy on the skin.

Pro Tips & Tricks for Flawless makeup : 



Here are some tips for a flawless application and the makeup that will last, look good personally and also in pictures 🤗. 
1. Wet, Bounce & Twist- Always use it wet, never use it dry and when you apply bounce and twist or dab.

2. Did you know that you can use a damp beauty blender to apply skin care. I apply serums & primers and the cooling effect of the damp beauty blender on the skin a actually helps reduce swelling and puffiness you might have around your eyes when you wake up in the morning.

3. Using you beauty blender to apply self tanner. When you apply it with a beauty blender it reduces the risk of patchiness or lines on the skin.

4. Applying foundation with a damp beauty blender. I prefer beauty blender over brush to apply foundation because it gives the airbrush effect to the skin and no streaky lines.

5. Applying Concealer – I find it to be best method to applying and blending out concealer underneath the eyes. I would say definitely that when you use it to blend out concealer you nearly a 100% reduce the chances of the makeup creasing and settling into the fine-lines around the eye.

6. Applying powder to set the face and if there is anything this will be my number 1 tip because it completely changes the look of your skin. So, take a damp beauty blender directly into the powder and go directly into the skin using dabbing motion to apply the product. You can bake and also set the entire face and trust me it will minimize the appearance of pores and fine-lines.

7. Also try applying cream bronzer and cream blush with a damp beauty blender, i assure you it will change you game of applying makeup to the next level.

 
Last hack is to use beauty blender to apply mascara … Just kidding 😂 , don’t ever do that guys hehe! I really hope you liked this post and hope it will help to make your makeup look flawless.
Xoxo 😘

Spring Fashion Trends | 2017

Hello My Beauties,

Spring is definitely the time of the year to be bit more adventurous with your wardrobe and go bold 🤗. It is probably my favorite season weather wise, i think its very fresh and crisp outside and its little bit chilly. These are some trends which i like to wear personally and  I think this year it is going to be more like 70’s and 80’s kind of vibe.

LOOK 1: PowerHouse 

I’ve always been choosy with what I wear because I want it to resemble a look that makes me the most comfortable and yet trendy -A look that exudes Class. I love floral –  I know 😋 floral is Spring ‘ground breaking ‘! I like my style to be more 70’s kind of psychedelic floral this year. I love floral printed peasant-style blouse because its very comfy to wear. In this look I’m wearing a slender ties detail floral blouse with split neckline atop from NordstromCrop trousers –  Crop trousers are huge at the moment and I’m so into them because I feel like crop is much more flattering on me. I like high waist and crop ankles, crop denims, etc to bring that power house look. I love this one particularly from Macy’s because it is easy, comfortable and effortless slouchy-woven trousers that tapers to ankle baring cuffed hems.  Whiskey leather Bag from Nordstrom.  DSC_0022

Look 3: Denim & Romper

Distressed Denim jacket- For me denim jackets are timeless and you can pair it with fennel shirts, jeans, rompers, dress, shorts,etc.  I really like the white fading that you don’t see typically in denim jackets and i really love that it is distressed. I pick this up from TOPSHOP and I have been loving every second of it. I prefer that it has the signature pockets and a roomy fit to it. The Denim quality is amazing and have really cool distressed details on it hence making it a subtle combination. Romper –  I can see me wearing rompers like every day this summer, they are so comfortable. I like this particular short romper from H&M.  It is sweet and sassy, and playful which features a springy floral print and lustrous polka dots that catch the light just so. Finally I paired the look with my favorite NIKE kicks.

Look 4: Careless Spin

Graphic Tee’s – I like graphic tee’s a lot and it has generally come around recently a lot and has became something very huge. I have seen so many people wearing old school Gucci logo t-shirt. I love them, they are so sassy and fun and just draw the eye to it. What truly irks my interest in this piece of fabric, the staunch thick material which can make a simple basic t-shirt go from basic to uber cool. I picked mine from Pacsun and all i did was tied the ends of the Tee into a knot to give that careless spin Over-sized fishnets – Texture, dimension and allure are what make fishnets so classic and i love wearing them with my ripped jeans. This is a trend that i love and have seen so much recently, tights with ripped jeans, which sounds horrible but it actually looks really really cool. I have no idea from where this trend came from or why it became popular, but its something that is viral on all the social media platforms and i really like it. Fish net sleeves- i feel like that is also making a huge comeback, like a Gothic kind of culture but with a very fashion forward kind of way. Oversize fish net is a very cool trend but i know its not going to be for everyone. I paired the look with my G. H Bass brown leather aviator sneakers.  Jeans– I paired it with a ragged tears and distressed shredding serious distressed jeans from Urban Outfitters. It has the rough-and-tumble vibe of ultra-cropped silhouette jeans cut to give a svelte look.

Those are some of the trend which I have been loving this upcoming season which I can see definitely in my spring/summer wardrobe. There are so many cool things coming up and I just want to go crazy and buy them all. So, I really hope some of the outfits inspired you a little bit to try something new or something you can look out for when you next go to the shops. Most important thing when it comes to fashion is what you like and feel more comfortable to wear. 💗

Makeup Shaming Needs To Stop!

Hello My Beauties,

This is a topic that gets me kind of heated up. Normally, I don’t talk about these things but after I saw NIKKIE TUTORIALS about Makeup Shaming and its crazy how makeup shaming is still a thing since after her video on Power Of Makeup blew up on the internet last year. Makeup shaming is very much still alive.

I’m really tired of people always having negative to say about makeup. I want to ask them – what is the issue with makeup? I really don’t get it! From various social media comments, not just in my profile but on other people too, from degrading twitter post where guys say ‘ Bring this girl swimming on your first date’. You all need to stop saying that because we don’t wear makeup to impress you. That’s really sounds stupid to us.

– by  Unknown
A lot of girls have makeup collection a worth of couple thousand dollars, including me, and I’m not spending that kind of money, time and energy and effort I put doing my makeup just to impress you.  A lot of people also think that- one who does makeup is very insecure! Half of the time when we do makeup we don’t even leave the house, I do it just to test or experiment with some looks or products. Of course, I don’t wear makeup everyday , that’s not reasonable or practically possible! Some day I will walk out with no makeup to run my errands or to do grocery shopping. But If I do have the time, I love to get all glam up! By all means, there are good people too, who appreciate makeup like my husband, I feel lucky that atleast he doesn’t say any bad word about this, from the very beginning.

First of all there is not much difference between a natural look and colorful makeup look, its just the colors, like you still wearing the same amount of makeup. So, you are not wearing more makeup just because you are wearing a colorful eyeshadow or pink,blue,black lips rather then a nude lipstick. I love nudes but don’t let others to hold back just because they want to experiment with other colors.

From comparing girl to girl just because experiencing an art and something so fun, from some people telling me before ‘Wow You Wearing A lot Of Makeup!’ Why you are wearing so much makeup? You don’t need it! ”My girl doesn’t wear makeup, still she look naturally beautiful!” But seriously that’s her choice, why are you telling me, what does that have to do with me? Good for her!

That’s like me wearing a shirt and people telling me all day that why you are wearing a shirt.  You choose whatever you want to put in your face just like whatever dress you want to wear. Like some people are into fashion, I’m into Fashion , I like to dress up my body and I like to dress my face and I really don’t see anything wrong with that.

All the makeup haters  need to understand that makeup is an art form to us, whether you believe it or not. It’s the way to express someone’s creativity. No one will wear a yellow Lipstick to impress someone ! I don’t judge you when you do your haircut or shave or apply cream on your face or body. So why on earth you judging me? I wear makeup because that’s one of my hobby, I love playing with colors, and shadows and show my creativity. If I don’t practice with my looks, shadows, blush or bronzers and all that , how am I suppose to get better at my art? It’s just Painting in a piece of paper and the canvas is your face.

A lot of girls are criticized because of the amount of makeup they wear and portrait as fake. It’s like Makeup is still a taboo thing to people.  Creativity and passion should be uplifted not brought down by harsh words.

My Message here girls/boys is that even when it comes to other thing like makeup, in any part of you life , if someone trying to tell you they don’t like the way you do things or your appearance, it can be really hard to brush off those questions , and trust me I get that too, Tell them that you’re wearing makeup for your damn self. Its the thing that makes us happy, so I will continue to do that and you should follow your passion too.

This is just a little message to all the makeup lovers, I hope that it will help you. Maybe you just needed that extra boost and that extra encouragement to do what you love! 💗

Xoxo 😘

P.S: And for all the makeup haters – If you don’t like makeup that’s perfectly fine, not everybody is going to like everything, that is the beauty of life, that is what makes all of us different, but don’t judge us by questioning and expressing negativity! Why would you want to make someone feel bad for expressing their creativity? Spread Love Not Hate!

What do Eye Bags Reveals About Your Health ||

Hello My Beauties,

Eye Bags are named given to the puffy, fluid filled, bag-like shaped that appears underneath the eyes. It often gets confused with Dark Circles because it often appears in the same time. The eye bag sometimes creates a shadow under the eyes, looking like dark circles. The good news is we are not born with eye bags and one of the major cause is pretty much aging. Something that we can’t stop but we can definitely help ease the process. Eye bags usually occurs at around age 28 in women because that’s optimum peaking age for us. Its pretty much downhill from there. Now due to environmental pollution, preservatives in foods we eat, technology radiation sometimes you can notice eye bags as early as 23 – 25 years old. At around 35 years old that’s when the first sign of aging kicks in. The skin around the eyes is no acception to the rest of the body. You will notice that the eyes will start to loss Elasticity, causing sagging on both top and bottom eyelids; the fat around the eyes will also begin to move and will cause wrinkles and folds will start to form as well.

Ofcourse there are other factors that causes eye bags including – Hormonal imbalance, anemia, nutritional deficiency, stress, allergies, infections and illnesses, sleeping positions or lack of sleep.

Traditionally there are 3 major types of Eye Bags and i will be sharing with you what causes them and how to treat them.

1.SPLEEN EYE BAGS: The appearance of these eye bags is usually shinny and swollen. You can also notice such as fat or swollen tongue, teeth mark on the side of the tongue, you will also notice lack of energy , feeling sleepy at daytime and awake at nightime and sometime diarrhea. If you experience such symptoms, it mean your body is trying to take better care of your spleen. This organ plays a big role in the immune system and helps to purify the blood.

Treatments: It is highly suggested to consume Barley – ,

Yam –

and Qianshi (Gorgon fruit) congee-

 

2. KIDNEY EYE BAGS: Appearance of these eye bags is usually green and bruised looking. Almost like someone gave you a black-eye. The company symptoms include – swallow tongue with white layer on top, you may have ulcers, sweat a lot, weal legs, you’re thirty all the time, sore muscles and frequent urination. This is your body’s way of telling you to take better care of your kidneys because it takes care of the waste disposal in the body & cleanses the blood continuously.

Treatments: The Treatments includes eating GOGI Berries

and handful of consuming Gogi berries daily will not only improve your general heath but it gets rid of those annoying eye bags.

 

3. TEMPORARY EYE BAGS: These eye bags are usually swallow or puffy from crying or bloating. Now these normally disappears after a couple of hours but usually you will feel warm sensation or skin tightening around the eyes.

Treatments: There are several treatments to get rid of those eye bags ranging from – applying ice-cubes

,

or tea bags

and even eye masks but I find the best way is using Frozen Corn

and place over the eyes to de-puff. Eye creams also helps in getting rid of those eye bags.

So that it for what your eye bags tells about your health. I hope it will help for those who are struggling to get rid of it and if you have any questions comment down below and hope i will try to answer it as much as I know!

Xoxo 💗💗💗💗

HAIR TALK:  All About My Hair | Products I Use For Healthy Hair 

Hello My Beauties, 

I’m super happy to finally sharing my post on my hair care and it’s been one of the most requested post for the last couple of months so I hope it is helpful. This post is all about my current favorite hair products, information about my hair color, how I maintain the tone of my hair and also some general tips for keeping it strong and healthy. If you are interested in the type of color, depending on your current hair and stylist, it could take a few sessions to get it right. 

I have done Blonde Balayage on my hair and I love the color it has turned into over the past years. As the definition says ” Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.” 

If you are going light for the first time, consider going ombré, or just trying a darker shade of blonde first. I know, I know, “blondes have more fun,” but making the switch from dark to light can be shocking, so ease yourself into it to avoid any regret.

Products : 


As anyone with blonde hair knows, there’s a lot of upkeep to go along with all that extra fun—from coping with damage to fighting brassiness, there’s a seemingly endless litany of issues you have to contend with as soon as you bust out the blonde. So the products I use to maintain my hair are : 

1. Hair Vitamins: SugarBearHair vitamins- 

According to Kylie Jenner, Kim K and other Instagram celebrities, SugarBearHair vitamins are the new best way to solve your hair woes. With a whopping 1 million Instagram followers and astonishing marketing campaigns the massively grab the attention of women of any age, I decided to give this product a try and check what all the fuss is about.I never thought I will love this product but now I swear by this product because My hair used to fall out a lot specially in the shower, within the 3rd week I noticed a huge difference I barely lost any hair. They are delicious chewy hair vitamins and are vegetarian, cruelty-free, and made in the U.S.A. They’re flavored with natural berries for a sweet taste. It says to have 2 gummy bears a day to get all the nutrients needed to meet your hair goals.  Buy here -> Link         
2. Living proof frizz shampoo: I’ve been using this for over a year now. It leaves my hair soft and healthy. It lives up to its name, managing frizz. I have nice waves that last through the day and it is very gentle to the hair. I started using this shampoo because it is a No Frizz Shampoo which is ideal for all frizz-prone hair types. It is sulfate-free and silicone-free and safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair. Buy here -> Link 

     
 3. Chi Keratin Conditioner:  I felt love with this conditioner because after using couple of times It reconstructed my dry damaged hair and helped replenish and protect the hair’s natural keratin protein. It also improved the elasticity of the hair and prevented breakage and added intense hydration back to the hair and made my hair soft and shiny. Buy here -> Link  
4. OGX  Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Intense Moisturizing Treatment: I use this as a hair mask once a week. I scoop a small amount into my palm and evenly distribute with a wide tooth comb from roots down to the ends. I leave the treatment in hair for 3-5 minutes by placing a shower cap over hair and wrapping cap with a hot, wet towel and I  rinse with mild to cool water.  Buy here -> Link 

 5. Biosilk Farouk CHI Silk Therapy 17 Miracle Leave-in Conditioner: I love this leave in conditioner as it really does the job what it says on the package. It detangles and smooth & softens my hair. It is gentle and smells amazingggg! I use it daily. Buy Here -> Link

 

6. HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil:  It is a lightweight, alcohol-free oil that absorbs instantly to provide frizz-free shine without leaving an oily residue. It has Argan Oil which is rich in essential fatty acids and penetrates hair to restore shine and provide soft, silky results in dry, damaged hair.  Buy here  -> Link 

7. SCHWARZKOPF BC BONACURE HAIR THERAPY OIL POTION DIVINE POLISH:  

This is the last hair care product I use in my hair care routine just to add that finishing gloss spray.  It has precious Argan oil on it which evens the hair surface for opulent shine. Buy here -> Link  
Personally, every time I go, I end up going back to get a toner to neutralize the brassiness as after the first wash, the color tends to change. So just keep that in mind if your hair has a darker base color like mine. Also I recommend finding a stylist who knows and is confident with this type of coloring technique. Asking people you know for recommendations or using good old Google works too, but I would recommend doing it with a stylist who has experience, as it is quit an “art” to know where to place the color and highlights so it looks super natural.  

Xoxo 💗💗💗

Best Of Beauty 2017 || DRUGSTORE Edition

Hello My Beauties,

The other day I went to Wallgreens ,Target & Cvs to buy some new makeup collection and I’m so impressed that so many drugstore brands that are actually bringing there game on , and that can be compared with some of the High-end makeup brands. Now I want to say that there are some products which are not from this year and I haven’t found any favorites for those products yet! So I had to use my all time favorite drugstore items. 🤗

I created this look using these products:

best-of-beauty-jan

  1. e.l.f Prep & Hydrate Balm :  I loved this product because it is a clear water-based cooling formula stick which targets my dry patch & helps smooth, hydrate and prep skin for makeup application to achieve a dewy finish. Very moisturizing and honestly, so much better than a primer. It creates such a smooth canvas to work with and, it requires zero dry time. So makeup looks smooth,even and flawless. However, this primer is best for oily skin. I used it and loved it because its winter and my skin has been very dry lately.
  2.  L’oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation For Oily Skin : One of the most hiped product of this year is Loreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation which is hands-down will be one of my most used product, I know I can feel it. This product blends like butter instantly covers dark spot and blemishes. I have applied with a wet beauty blender. I also tried this with a brush but it didn’t blend like the beauty blender did in my case. It has a lightweight coverage but you can build up this product and it doesn’t feel cakey at all even when you double the product for full coverage. It is a new pro look of long-wear. It lasted me up to 10 hours without any touch up.
  3. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer in Light : When I tried this concealer it feels like not much product comes with the applicator which I hate but I will say though that the texture reminds me a lot like  KAT VON D Lock-it concealer cream. Just like thick and creamy but little lighter than the KVD’s Lock-it concealer.. It might be a dupe for that  * who knows * 😊. As it is a thick concealer I thought it will not blend easily but it did…yaasss! It didn’t crease when applied with Translucent powder. I Baked my under-eye with NYC Translucent powder ( I didn’t find any new Translucent powder that caught my eyes this year so went with NYC).
  4.  NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder – Translucent : Heard good things about this product and had to give it a try for the price. SO glad I did because it works great for being a drugstore makeup product. It is a bit messy if you’re not careful but I don’t use the applicator that comes with it. I just used a damp beauty blender to bake my under-eye, It does an okay job under the eyes but very happy overall with how it sets the whole face. I used Laura Mercier setting powder later to bake it again!
  5. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Pressed Powder: This powder is so smooth of a consistency, I just loved it. It says it is a light-diffusing pigment and yes it does. It gives a veil of silky natural look. I also tested in a bare skin and it just works flawless finish. Some powders clogs in dry areas, especially in the winters, but it didn’t- I Loveddddd ittt! I have nothing to say bad about this product.
  6. Essence pure nude highlighter : This is my favorite natural highlighter from the drugstore. It doesn’t emphasize my pores or look powdery on my skin. For me this is the dupe for Estee Edit Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder in the color ‘HEAT’. If anything I prefer Essence pure nude than the Estee one, I know that is so crazy. They have the same intensity,same color and same wear time. I brought this one because of Kathleen lights and I loveee this!  It Literally makes me glow from within and it has an incredible pigmentation for being a drugstore brand! This is now my go-to everyday highlighter and I 100% recommend it. 
  7. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: Omg you guys, this bronzer smells like a tropical paradise. I love the smell of the beach, coconut, piña colada and I couldn’t say no to this one. This bronzer is so creamy, but yet a powder. It applies evenly with any type of brush that I have used. I reach for it over my Benefit Hoola bronzer. This bronzer also works as a great contour color and you can also use it to set any cream contour and it lasts all day long. It definitely lives up to the hype. My only gripe is that they need to come up with darker shades.
  8. e.l.f. Mad for Matte 2 Eyeshadow Palette: I haven’t tried elf eyeshadow before but the quality of this palette is die-for! It feels so soft,smooth and it has really nice pigmentation. This palette is perfect for achieving a beautifully bold or subtle everyday eye look. It has 10 matte eyeshadow shades. This is ideal for shading, highlighting, and defining the eyes. I used the satin matte shadows as a liner, on the lid, and in the crease of the eye for an expertly contoured and blended look . You can get a variety of beautiful looks from natural to glam with this. I highly recommend it. Pretty color combos and  definitely use a primer. This is the perfect palette to travel with because it has all the shades, it is slim and light-weighted.
  9. L’Oreal Telescopic mascara : This mascara is my ride or die. It makes my lashes look long and full. I highly recommend this product. I use this mascara like everyday and maybe this is the only mascara I reach out every time. I prefer this one because of the wand, It has a brush with a flat side to lengthen lashes up to 60%, and a comb side to separate lashes with precision. It works best for my lower lash-line.  It removes easily with Micellar water and it is fragrance-free. Whenever I wear lens I don’t feel any irritation and it doesn’t leave that black circle under the eyes.
  10. Wet N Wild Mega Last Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick: I found This liquid liptick so pigmented and you just need one application and you are good to go. It doesn’t transfer easily but I will say though that it does eventually come off with greasier foods. However, I wore this all day  (8 hours) and it barely looked like it had smudged. There is a good range of colors available. One of the best liquid lipstick I came across after such a long time in the drugstore.
  11. Milani Make It Last Setting Spray:  It says it Primes, sets and hydrates the skin with a Dewy finish and I totally agree with it. It Made my makeup sets so nicely, it took away the powdery look. It also says it is suppose to last 16 hours but I have to play with it few more times to see if it really lasts that long. A lot of setting spray from the drugstore just spray like crazy but this has a nice mist to it, even though the smell kind of threw me off, but i really like it. 🤗

Xoxo 💗
