Them Glow Kits

Highlighting and Contouring has been a major beauty trend over the past couple of years. It has always been around and has always been in the industry, but we have celebrity makeup artist and major beauty gurus that helped blow up this trend. When we think of highlight and contour we all automatically think Anastasia Beverly Hills! They have come out with major super affordable pallets of great makeup quality. I have to give it to them before they ventured into other categories of the beauty industry they were only known as the “Goddest of Brows”. I have not been able to get my hands on the latest pallet, but do have few to work with.

“GLOW KIT”

I love this pallet because it gives you that sun kiss summer glow all year long. I feel this one is more suited for someone who has been highlighting for a while. This pallet sparkles a lot . It maybe a little bit to chalky and glittery for a bigger , but over all I LOVE it. You can apply this on your body for a glow.

That Glow

I personally love this pallet and would aim for a bigger to start using because the colors are so soft . I love how they just sit well on the skin without them being to much or to little.Remember it’s all up to you how much you pick up.

Sun Dipped

Ok so Sun Dipped is one of my favorites because it has more of a bronze contour effect. Great for a biggenir and offers a variety of different shades to create different looks. Remember like I mention above it all depends on how much you decide to pick up.

Brush A23

Finally the brush to get for all this wonderful highlight is Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 brush. This brush picks up the right amount and is small enough to reach creases and areas where you only want to apply the high light without feeling like you dipped your whole face .

My Splurge and Spend Setting Spray

So if you have not been introduce to the world of setting sprays let me tell you …… You have been missing out. I love setting sprays because it sets your makeup by giving it a finish look and by helping it last longer. When it comes to setting sprays there are affordable options,  but splurging will not hurt. There are a variety of sprays in the market and it is hard to pick one because there are so many options.

What is a setting spray and why is it important? A setting spray is a light weight mist to prevent makeup to meltdown because it controls oil, reduces shine on the surface of the skin and helps keep your makeup by looking matte and flawless. Have you ever notice that when you do your makeup a couple of minutes later the makeup is eaten up on oily areas of the skin? Many setting sprays have high tech ingredients that prevent and control eyeshadow, foundation ,blush from running, fading, and smudging. Using a good setting spray will prevent you from touching up.

Here are my top setting sprays…..

This can be used under makeup or over makeup to freshen up your look.

Twelve Days of Christmas

Hi Dolls! For this mini series I will do my best to be consistent. Holiday’s are around the corner and Thanksgiving has just passed. The Christmas magic has started and the shopping has begun! If you are like me holiday shopping can be a little hectic! Specially when shopping for gifts and not having a clue what to get. With many parties scheduled it can be a little crazy. There are the friend parties, the office gift exchange, white elephant gift, gifts for new bf, and gift for family. It can get a bit overwhelming to try to find the right gift. I absolutely believe in gift cards, but that can be a bit impersonal at times. I also don’t like doing random gift exchange at work to be quite honest! Why because usually those are drawn and you might get someone you really dislike or not know.Who actually came up with this??? If you’ve had the misfortune of working with a group you are not to close  to it  can be difficult to shop for. So on the first day of Christmas I recommend to get the following for your  coworker…..

Holiday Hand Due-Lavander by Kiehls.com

It works as a great gift because it is something your coworker can use at work and keep at their desk. It is simple and an essential to keeping hands smooth from working manually or typing away and filing.Also, you won’t have to worry about getting the wrong fragrance sent because Kiehl’s products do not have added fragrances and the scents for their products are not overwhelming.

One of my favorite things to do is going to Disneyland or anything Disney related. I have always been fascinated by mermaids. I happen to have my Urban Decay Electric Palette and rather than creating a more everyday wear look I decided to get creative. I mean who couldn’t look at these amazing vibrant colors….

Coffee Break

If you want to give your face a refreshing wake up feeling I urge you to try this coffee mask by Lush. Coffee masks are all over instagram, but with so many options it maybe hard to pick one. I chose to try this mask because it is gentle enough to use on the face and body. It helps detox and exfoliate the skin from all impurities.

I’ll admit at first this masked seemed a little messy, but you will fall in love with it. Be prepare to have little bit of a mess when you wash it off. The benefit of this mask is that you can use it in the shower to exfoliate any body part. I used it on the back of my arms were I develop a little bit of dead skin. In order to have my skin looking smooth and glowy I use this in the morning for about 10 minutes twice a week. Prior to applying I wash my face and then pat dry. I massage the mask for about a minute and let it sit for 10 minutes. I later rinse off with warm water . Hope you enjoy this post loves and please comment!
