If you are looking for a mask to clear your pores and tighten I recommend using “Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask”. This mask will deep clean pores and tighten them as well. As soon as you wash it off your skin will be left feeling smooth, bright, and clean. This mask solves all problems of dull looking skin, oiliness, and visible pores. The mask is known to flush away toxins, dirt,and debris that clog up the pores.If you tend to have super oily skin you are familiar with the debris that clogs up pores. You know those annoying white heads that build up, and if you pop them they tend to leave a visible open pore. I tend to have this problem , but so far using this mask twice or once a week has helped reduce any clogged pores. I like to use this mask during the night after I wash away makeup with a cleanser. After I apply this mask on damp skin and leave it for 10 minutes as it hardens. I follow up by washing with warm water and massaging the mask away. I love the after feeling! This mask contains bamboo charcoal that draw out deep impurities.It also contains china clay that is known to absorb environmental toxins and dissolves impurities.
So here is another lip product review for you dolls! I am a big fan of liquid lipsticks that last long and that keep lips smooth. I’ve come across so many liquid lip products that have been drying to my lips. So far these Everlasting Liquid Lip products have been true to their name ! I came across this mini liquid lipstick set by Kat Von D for $49 on their website www.katvondbeauty.com
If you are a daring gal these are for you because it comes with a variety of colors that can be mixed together to create another beautiful shade. If you dare to use them alone it comes with two new exclusive colors in “PLATH” and “ROXY”.What I like about this set is that it comes with bold colors and everyday colors. Personally the bold colors in this set are “L.U.V” (a violet purple), “ECHO” (a deep blue), and “ROXY” (a deep purple).
I can personally say that I don’t need plenty of applications of coats to get a true color. The lip product can last for several hours while I even drink or eat. Everlasting liquid lipsticks are not drying and actually make your lips feel smooth for a kissable lip effect. I personally recommend to have lips hydrated and exfoliated before applying any kind of lip product
Here are a few swatches for you from left to right we have “PLATH”, “SANTA SANGRE”,”LOVE SICK”,”MOTHER”, “BACKSTAGE BAMBI”,”L.U.V.”,”ROXY”, and “ECHO”
I actually go these for myself and I absolutely LOVE THEM! I picked up a set of the “Smashbox Light It Up Lipstick + Lip Mattifier Set”. What attracted me of this set is their hot neon package and the price! For $29 you get to pick up six deluxe lip products plus the mattifier. You get a variety of colors to try daily and the mattifier to give it a matte effect. If you know me I love lipstick and getting a variety of colors for daily use is a score. They are not the usual colors that come in kits that no one will consider wearing. These items are a perfect holiday gift for yourself or a lipstick lover! The consistency of the lip product is very smooth and buttery. They are also not matte, but you can transform them to a matte lip product by applying a small dab of the Lip Mattifier on top of the color.The consistency of the mattifier reminds me of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.The colors are very unique and comfortable. The great thing is that this lipstick unlike others are not limited edition colors to Smashbox. They are only limited addition to the set in the particular size. Which is awesome because I hate it when you find a color you love and somehow you come to discover that it’s not sold. If you use all your favorite colors you can simply hop online or visit your beauty counter for a full size edition .I LOVE this because I once had this lipstick I loved and looked great on me and guess what???? Once I was finished with the product it was not available for purchase.
Lip colors in no particular order just showing consistency 🙂

For this post I was inspired by everything mermaid and tropical. 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….
These are a few of my favorite beauty essentials my. The first is my favorite Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 6.25.

One thing that goes a long way when wearing makeup is using primer. A little bit goes a long way! Today I want to focus on the importance of eye shadow primer because it makes all the difference in how your eye makeup looks, last, and sparkles. Primer tends to even out your skin discoloration and shows the true color of eyeshadow. This weeks favorite primer is Tarte Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12 hour smoothing primer. This primer is magnificent because it smoothes out the skin and helps avoid creases that tend to happen when we have oily eyelids. I don’t know about you ,but not every eye primer seems to work for me. It all depends on body chemistry and how eyeshadow sits on our skin.This primer allows you to have a blank canvas and smooth surface for eye makeup. It is also waterproof and smudge free. When I tested this primer out I discovered that it locks eye shadow in its place and prevents fall out. Which is great because it avoids that raccoon eye look that tend to happen after a night of partying. Like many of Tarte products this is paraben free and sulfate free.
Hello my lovelies !If you are a lover of beauty and routine like myself you have provably learned that you gravitate towards make up that works and does the necessary. That being effective coverage without overdoing it. Although I am a certified makeup artist and have worked in the beauty industry for plus years this post is dedicated to the girls who are oooh so natural! You know the everyday girl who does not necessaseraly have to have an over done face and is not an expert on makeup, but on what works best for her.
For years I avoid wearing foundation because I had perfect clear skin and felt that there was no need to wear foundation. I thought foundation would ruin my skin and cause me blemishes. To be honest I thought ALL foundation would do that to my skin. As I learned more about beauty products I discovered that there are two different types of makeup, stage make up and everyday make up. We can refer to stage make up as those super over the top covarage foundations that were created to wear on an acting stage. Stage makeup tends to be a bit more heavier due to lighting.This type of makeup is okay to wear during special occasions due to photographs ect. Later I learned that there is everyday makeup that will still give you full coverage or little coverage as you desire. Now a days makeup has been technolagically advanced that we find foundations and powders with spf, minerals, and antioxidents.
My current favorite makeup foundation and powder are my Too Faced cosmetics. Their Born This Way foundation is oil free and medium to full coverage. The trick to getting great coverage is to apply the formula from the center of the face and outward by blending. To build a full coverage effect is best to layer the foundation as needed. This foundation in infused with coconut water which replenishes the skins moisture levels. It is also infused with alpine rose to brighten the skins appearance and promote elasticity and hyaluronic acid to give the skin a more smoother and youthful appearance.
Cocoa Powder foundation is mixed with coco complex, antioxidant rich, and matte rose petal finish. I have learned that this powder can still be used by itself and give you a natural coverage. It is very weightless and gives a matte finish. Try focusing on the oily areas of the skin by dusting the foundation powder with a brush. Unlike other powders this formula absorbs oil, is non drying,defends agains free radicals, and deminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
