Fall Eyeshadow Makeup Look

Fall is the season to tone things down. You know? Darker coloured clothes?Burgundy, black, and dark green. Darker makeup, darker lips, brown eyeshadow? Ring a bell?

Today, I want to show you a fall eyeshadow makeup look I created using Fenty Beauty and Rimmel London products. It was really easy and simple. I don’t have the time to do elaborate makeup, but I really admire those that do it so well.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Step 1 – I used Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick for my inner eyelid. I used the shade rum. I really like the gold colour. It made my makeup really pop.You can shop it Here

Step 2 –  Then I used the burgundy colour in my Rimmel London’s MagnifEyes Eyeshadow Palette on mu outer lids. You can shop it Here

Step 3 – I always wear dark lipstick. I just love looking gothic and badass. I can never wear pink lipstick or other colours. This one is from Fenty beauty, the shade is griselda from the mattemoiselle collection. You can shop it Here

I really liked how this turned out. I can wear this look out with my friends or on a date. This look is really me and this is how I like my makeup, simple and clean and dark. Don’t forget dark. Haha.

Review: Clinique Stay Matte Oil – Free Makeup (Sample)

Everyone loves foundation! I mean, foundation is Everything! Who doesn’t love a good foundation that they can depend on, and use for years and years? Who doesn’t love quality foundation that meets their needs and matches their skin tones? I know, I do!

Today, I want to review Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup (Sample). I’ve never used the brand Clinique before, but I was excited to try this.

IMG_9318.jpg

First Impressions

I didn’t know what my shade was so I chose the shade golden because it looked close to my foundation shade that I would normally use. When I applied it to my skin it felt really thick.

IMG_9321

The Results

The foundation seemed to be medium coverage or light coverage because it didn’t cover up my spots when I applied it. And it also didn’t really blend well. Also, I think that the shade that I chose was a little too dark for my skin tone. It was a little dry too as well and it didn’t really cover up my pores.

The Verdict

I’m going to give this foundation a 3/5 stars. It didn’t blend well. Also the coverage was too light, it seemed like I would have to use a lot to cover my spots. And I NEED  to cover my spots, you know what I’m saying. It seemed like it was really matte though, which I give the brand thumbs up for. I mean, when you have oily skin matte foundations are key.  Also the price wasn’t too bad, on sephora.com it costs $35, which is way cheaper than most foundations that cost $42 and up.

These are just my thoughts though. Maybe you tried it and loved it, everyone’s skin is different and have different makeup needs.

Have you ever tried this foundation before? If so, what did you think of it? Comment below

Review : Becca Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation

Foundation is the one thing that I can’t live without. Put me on an island with other cosmetics and I’ll always choose foundation. A girl’s gotta cover up her spots, you know what I’m saying?

Today, I want to review the Becca  Skin Love Weightless Blur  Foundation. This is a breathable, medium coverage liquid foundation with a buildable finish that enhances the natural beauty of your skin, this is what the package states.

fullsizeoutput_208d

First Impressions

I decided to use the shade Maple because it seemed similar to the shade that I used with my regular foundation by Fenty Beauty.

LDqsMbVZTyCJSnE3H+W51Q

1.So first thing, I really liked that it covered my spots. I didn’t have to use a lot of foundation to cover up. I really liked this, because with so many other foundations you have to use so much to cover everything.

2. It went on smoothly, I didn’t really have to blend it out too much.

IMG_8734

 

After an Hour

After an hour, I checked back on my skin. I noticed that the foundation didn’t move. There was no oil dripping off my skin or anything.

The Downside

After the hour, I noticed that the foundation started flaking. It didn’t really look natural or feel breathable. It felt heavy on my skin.

The Verdict

I’m going to give this foundation a 3.5/5 stars. I liked the coverage the best and I liked that it went on smoothly. But after the hour it looked patchy and just ugly. It retails for $53 on Sephora.com. Would I spend that much money on this foundation? No, I don’t think it’s worth the price and the bottle looks really small for the price.

Yes, so this was my review of this foundation. What did you think of this post? Do you use this foundation? What did you think of it?

Using Elf Cosmetics Eyeshadow to Create A Dramatic Look

“Does this eyeshadow look good on me?”, I ask my mom. “Yes, it looks great”,she exclaims. I have to do a double take because I’m wondering if I’m talking to my mom or someone totally different. I mean, my mom always complains that I wear too much makeup.

Today, I want to show you all, how I created this dramatic look using Elf Cosmetics Eyeshadow Collection. Look, I’m not the type to wear dramatic looks like this, I always keep it simple or I don’t wear eyeshadow at all. Today was different though, I wanted to try something new.fullsizeoutput_1e9c

So this is the palette that I used. I bought it in my local Shoppers Drugmart here in Canada. It cost me about $20. I bought it 2 years ago.

 

I used dark green and silver for my inner crease.

Using the Dark Green Colour

 

fullsizeoutput_1e93.jpeg
Silver Colour 

fullsizeoutput_1e9a.jpeg

Yes, so this is the finished look. I liked that the green complemented the silver so well. Would I ever wear this look out? I don’t think so, it’s too much. Maybe I’d wear it to a Halloween Party or something if I ever went to one. But I must say, for someone who isn’t a pro at doing eyeshadow, I did a great job! I’m surprised y’all! Shoutout to Youtube!

What did you think of this post? Do you often sport dramatic eyemakeup looks or do you like more simpler makeup? Comment below.

Review : Leven Rose 100% Pure & Organic Rosehip Oil

Get clear skin! Use this oil! Use this soap and your face will look flawless! Heard this before? But no one ever tells you how hard or time consuming it is to get clear skin. You know?

The Internet is a great place! Recently, I watched this influencers Instagram story where she was shedding light on the products that she uses to get rid of acne and dark spots. In the video she mentioned that she uses Rosehip oil and that it’s the reason why her dark spots went away. I then decided to hop over to Amazon and saw this one Leven Rose 100% Pure & Organic Rosehip Oil. Now, let’s discuss…

IMG_7903

First Impressions

The first day I used this I was really impressed that it didn’t leave my skin oily. I can’t use most of these essential oils products but this was great. I didn’t even notice that it was on my skin.

IMG_7904.jpg

The Good

I liked that this product was organic. I always feel better when products are natural. It gives me more confidence to purchase it. It made my face look really clean

The Bad

I used this for 2 weeks and after the first week I started breaking out. I don’t know maybe my skin is too sensitive? I didn’t see any marked results after 2 weeks. My spots didn’t go away or fade. I still have 3/4 of the bottle left.

fullsizeoutput_1bd6

Conclusion

I don’t know if I should’ve used this longer but it didn’t work for me. Maybe I need a stronger formula? Maybe I should try a different brand? I don’t know. I’m going to give this 2.5 out of 5 stars. I feel like I wasted $20.

Different products work for different people. It clearly does work for some people but it just didn’t cut it for me.

New Products Alert

I’m not one of those people who is always in Sephora. Well, I’m not one of those people yet, but at times, I like to try out new products. I mean, who doesn’t like trying new things? I feel like as a Beauty blogger you have to constantly try new products to keep up with the game. Today, I wanted to show you babes some of my New Products.

fullsizeoutput_17c3

I recently purchased this Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Collection online at Sephora when I bought my Nars concealer. I wanted to get my shopping bag to $50 so that I could get free shipping so I saw that they had this on sale soI purchased it as well. I’ve never really tried nude lip colours before but I wanted to see what they were like. I gave my best friend one of the lip glosses but Here’s what’s in the collection.

fullsizeoutput_17c1

fullsizeoutput_17d5

1)Nars Orgasm Nude lip colourfullsizeoutput_17c9

fullsizeoutput_17d3

Out of everything I liked this this the most. It was as if I wasn’t wearing anything. It really blends really well. It’s not dry, it’s really hydrating. Shop it Here

2) Smashbox Cosmetics Liquid Pigment Nude Lipstickfullsizeoutput_17c6

I liked the fact that this was really rich and pigmented. The only downside? It didn’t suit me at all. Wrong nude. Haha. Shop it Here

3. Hourglass Nude Lip Stylo

fullsizeoutput_17ce

I don’t typically wear lip liners but I can’t wait to try this. Shop it Here

4. Urban Decay Vice Special Effects

fullsizeoutput_17c8

I like that this glitters. I could use it as a highlighter or if I’m going to some Halloween party wear it on my lips. Shop it Here

Yes, so these are all of the new products. Some I will keep like the Nars Orgasm Nude Lip Colour and maybe I’ll give away the Smashbox cosmetics liquid pigment nude lipstick just because it doesn’t match my skin tone.

This post isn’t really a review, I just wanted to show you my new products.

Sunday Riley C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum

I’m always on the hunt for products that brighten my face. I hate when my face looks dull and lifeless. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like looking like I just woke up, you know what I’m saying? I don’t like when people ask me, “Did you get enough sleep, are you ok”? I like looking Fresh! Recently, I discovered something that helps with that. Keep Reading.fullsizeoutput_1930

Again, I was purchasing something from Sephora and they were giving out samples so I saw this Sunday Riley C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum sample and I said, “I have to have this!”!. I’ve never heard of this product before but I decided to take a chance and try it out.

I liked that it was creamy but it didn’t make my skin oily. After the first day I noticed that it started working. My skin looked brighter and fresher. I fell in love with it.

fullsizeoutput_192e

It didn’t clear my spots or anything, but it made me look awake and fresh and  most importantly, it made my face look bright and that’s what I really wanted.

This serum is a little pricey. It retails for $110 on Sephora.com but I think it works better than all those other Vitamin C oils that claim to make your skin brighter.

fullsizeoutput_156a

Will I purchase this again? I probably will have to save up for it, but I think it’s a good product. It does what it says it will do. Most things that are often good are always expensive.  You can shop it Here

I’ll give this serum a 5/5 stars.

Review : Kat Von D Lock It Concealer Creme

I don’t really like to stray too much outside of the products that I use for my face, but today I decided to try Kat Von D Lock It Concealer Creme. When I purchased my Nars concealer, I chose to get the Kat Von D concealer as a sample  just to see what it’s like. My friend always talks about how great  Kat Von D Products are, so I said, why not?

fullsizeoutput_17d2

I applied a little primer and foundation first. I chose the shade Medium 19 Cool because it looked more like my shade. Then I used my damp beauty blender to apply.

fullsizeoutput_17d4

I was pleasantly surprised. It went on smoothly and I didn’t have to apply too much product. It din’t look caked on, it was really rich. I thought it concealed really well.IMG_7014.jpeg

IMG_7015

It made my under eyes look bright, which I really like, when wearing concealer. Itreally felt really hydrating, even though the formula was thick. It went on really smooth.

fullsizeoutput_17d0

The only downside to this? A couple of hours later I started to see lines. Overall, I’d give this concealer a 4/5. I liked the formula and the shade but the only thing I’m worried about is that it will crease after a while.

On the Sephora’s website, the bottle looks like normal sized concealers. Would I buy this again? Maybe. I didn’t really think this concealer was more special or completely different than any other one, but it’s still good. You can shop it Here

I’m still sticking to my Nars Concealer though for now.

Note : These words and pictures are all mine

What concealers do you use? Have you ever tried this concealer before? Please leave a comment.

My Makeup Routine IN 10 Steps

fullsizeoutput_1717

Look, I wish I was the type of person to say things like, “I do my makeup differently everyday”, but I’m not. I’d like to be the person who says “I’m going to do this new bold look  with my eyes today”, but I’m not. Haha, will I ever be that type of person? Maybe, but typically I do my makeup the same way every time.. Maybe it’s laziness, maybe it’s comfort I don’t know, but it’s always the same. Yeah, I know, boring right?

Today, I’ll be sharing with you my Makeup Routine. Typically it takes me probably 45 minutes to do my makeup. Here’s the process.

  1. Primer – Before putting on my makeup I always apply primer. My face is always dry after I cleanse it, so using a primer makes all the difference. For this I like to use Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer. I like that this is super light and creamy and it doesn’t make my face oily. It’s also really affordable compared to Smashbox’s primer.fullsizeoutput_16e9
  2. Foundation – After apply primer I use, Fenty Beauty Pro’ Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. I like this makeup because it looks like my skin. I don’t feel like I’m trying too hard, it looks really natural. I shake the bottle twice then use 3-4 pumps depending on the day. My shade is 420. I always dampen my beauty blender before I apply my foundation, I find that it just goes on smoother and looks better.fullsizeoutput_1715
  3. Concealer– I like using Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. This is just so creamy and it just makes my face look really radiant. It’s the best.fullsizeoutput_e64fullsizeoutput_16eeThen I blend, blend, blend.
  4. Contour– After concealing. I contour. This is my favourite part of makeup. I like how it brings definition to my face. I use Fenty Beauty Matchstix Matte Skin stick in shade Truffle or Espresso. I use a brush to blend out my contourAfterlightImagefullsizeoutput_1705
  5. Setting Powder – I then apply setting powder. I love the RCMA No Color Powder. It’s easy to blend out and it makes my makeup stay on for a long time. I usually dampen my beauty blender to apply this. I usually leave it on for 5 mins while I do my eyebrows or apply mascara.fullsizeoutput_170dfullsizeoutput_1708
  6. Eyebrows – After setting powder I do my eyebrows. I use Rimmel London’s Brow Shake Filling Powder. I really like this because it makes my eyebrows really dark and bold. I don’t like it any other way. How to use? Shake, then apply but make sure the contents of the bottle don’t end up blotching your face.fullsizeoutput_16ed
  7. Eyeshadow – I do my eyeshadow next. Typically I use the same colours. Again, I’m really boring. These days I use the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Spice Edition. I like using the burgundy colours the most because they make me stand out.AfterlightImagefullsizeoutput_1741
  8. Mascara– I use 2 different mascaras, one on my top lashes and the other on my bottom lashes. I use Essence on my top eyelashes and Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara on my bottom lashes. fullsizeoutput_16eaAfterlightImage
  9. Setting Spray– This the second to last step. After I brush off the powder and apply mascara I use Mac Prep+ Prime Fix +Matte Vaporizer. When I first started using makeup I had no clue what this was but now I’m in love with it. It just makes my makeup look so good and photo ready.fullsizeoutput_1709
  10. Lipgloss – I used to hate wearing lipgloss but now I can’t stop wearing it. It’s so simple and easy. I don’t have to worry about lipstick being on your teeth or all over my mouth. I use Rimmel London’s Oh My Gloss Lipgloss. fullsizeoutput_1702

And this is the finished look belowfullsizeoutput_1594

fullsizeoutput_155f

These are all products that I LOVE. I use them regularly and I would recommend them to anyone. I won’t recommend products that are not great because there would be no point.

Yeah, so this is my makeup routine.Will I try new makeup looks in the future? Absolutely, because change is good, but for now I’ll keep doing this routine.

All the products shown in this blog post can be found on Sephora.com website or on Amazon.ca.

My Cleansing Routine

I often talk about what foundation I’m wearing, or, some new cosmetic product that I’m trying out, but what about what I use when I’m not wearing makeup? What’s underneath it all? Do I use thousands of products or just water? Hmm….keep reading.

fullsizeoutput_1548

 

Before I apply my foundation I always cleanse my face first. I start by using the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleaner. fullsizeoutput_1547

I really like this cleanser. It smells so fresh and clean. It reminds me of fresh cut lemons. I have really bad acne so this helps to calm it down and it makes my face look so fresh and clean. On the back, it says “For oily skin, use 2-3 times per week and rinse off with warm water”. This cleanser is really strong, so I wouldn’t recommend anyone using it too much. You can shop it Here

Next I Exfoliate…..

For this I use St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

I really love this scrub. Every time I know I’m going to be putting on makeup I use this.

fullsizeoutput_1547

Whenever I use this, my face looks so bright!It’s like I just visited the Dermatologist’s office! And I LOVE  it when my face looks bright. I feel like this just makes my makeup look 10 times better because it makes my face look like its glowing. I use this maybe 3-4 times per week. It’s not harsh on my skin and it smells really nice.You can shop it Here

So there you have it folks, this is how I cleanse my face before makeup. In 2 easy steps. There’s no fuss, there’s no hassle. It’s easy! I’ve been doing this for 2 years now so it’s tried and true.

Disclaimer : This is not a review post, I’m just sharing with you what I use to cleanse my face before makeup. These are all my thoughts, there are no affiliate links in this post.

What cleansers do you use? What new brands do you want to try? Do you use cleansers or just water?
