Glowy Summer Make-Up Look

Hi all & Happy Friday!

I’m so happy that it’s the weekend! This weekend is going to be a busy one, jam-packed with Indians Games, Grandparents 60th anniversary, & Father’s day! Since the weather is finally in summer mode here in Cleveland, & because I have such a busy weekend ahead of me I decided to share my Glowy Summer make-up look.  It’s super light weight, it makes your skin look super healthy, & it’s a look that I will be wearing all weekend!

Product List: 

  • Neutrogena Oil Free SPF 15 Lotion
  • Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream
  • Coastal Scents Blush
  • Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
  • Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara
  • Becca Champange Pop Highlighter (it’s a little broken I know I’m sorry!)
  • Antastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit

These are just the products that I use & really love, there are many dupes for each of these products so just find what works best for you!

I start with washing my face; skin care is key to a good makeup look! (You can check out my skin care routine here on the blog!) I apply the Neutrogena face lotion after my face is nice & clean. This lotion is super hydrating & it also has a built in SPF which is very important!

Clean Face & No Makeup!

Once the lotion has set in, I then apply the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. I apply this prodcut with my fingers, I just feel that it gets better coverage that way. This product is sheer & light weight, so if you are looking for a product that will cover all sorts of blemishes this isn’t the product for you. I love the complexion rescue because it gives your skin this really healthy glow, it lets my freckles shine through, & it has an SPF built in as well!

Once I finish applying the complexion rescue I then work on my eyebrows. Even though this is a simple makeup look I like to fill in my brows a bit, I think it really frames the face & makes the whole look pop!

After the brows, I add a bit of the Becca highligher on the tops of my cheek bones. I also sweep the brush up my face from my cheekbones in a sort of  ‘C’ motion. I then add the highligher to the bridge of my nose and the cupids bow of my lip.

Once I’m all highlighted, I like to add a little bit more pink in my cheeks to give that healthy glow. First I smile so I am really able to see the tops of my cheeks; using the Coastal Scents blush I make circlular movements with my brush to apply the blush on the tops of my cheeks. I also like to swipe a little blush across my nose as well.

To finish the look off I use both the Too Faced mascara as well as Covergirl on my lashes.


Now you’re ready for a perfect summer day!

I hope you enjoy this Glowy Summer Look & thanks for stopping by!

Are you a makeup or no makeup girl in the summer?



Fun Buns 🌺

Spring has sprung and the warm weather is approaching us. Updo’s become more prominent with the warmer weather. It is easy to get bored quickly with the average bun. So I have a few ways to spice up your average bun.  Today I wore a sock bun with a flower crown wrapped around… like so!

  I just thought it was something extra to make it a little more festive and springy!

Scarfs are another way to add a little something extra to your hair. I usually like to wrap it as a headband when my hair is up..

  (tbt to my trip to England)

I encourage everyone to create their own fun buns. You’re so much more fun than the boring old bun. Express yourself!

My look

Just a quick note.. I’m in love with this Illuminator! With my cheeks being naturally red, this Illuminator has this peachy tint to it that really brings out the natural blush. I will definetly but this again. I hope you like my simple look. I will be spending my day in the library- so exciting!

Nars Illuminator

Transfer to into Spring

With my birthday at the beginning of the month that allowed some money to come into my grubby little college paws.  Which means makeup… all sorts of makeup I’ve been putting on my wish list for months. So with spring coming into season, I’m switching out my dramatic contouring, with more of a light, dewy look.  I’m so in love with this look actually.  It’s something new to me that I’ve never tried before, and now that it’s in my IMG_5978makeup reservoir I vow to never let it go.  Back to my new  makeup.. FullSizeRender (15)as soon as I could I ordered the best possible illuminator I found. Now I may be wrong with my research, but I figured trial and error always works.  I ordered NARS Illuminator in the shade Orgasm – I’m 19 and still can’t get over the name. I haven’t gotten to try it yet, but trust me I’m dying.  I’ll be soon to post my own look with it.  As well as my illuminator, i got a free gift for my birthday, NARS matte lipsticks.  I obsess over anything matte so I can’t wait to try these either.

I’m happy to be back and posting. My personal looks will be up soon.

FullSizeRender (8)So today I went on a shopping adventure with my mother to Ross Park mall. As soon as we got there IFullSizeRender (6) ran to Sephora; and when I say ran I mean fast walked with my elbows out so no one got in my way. I had one thing on my mind when I got there, lipstick.  I had finally more than $60 in my bank account so I was actually able to buy something.  Something I had been looking to buy for a very long time is lipstick by Kat Von D I’m such a huge fan of hers so that’s the first thing I went to.  I myself usually wear darker lipstick colours, so I choose Wolvesmouth. I follow her on instagram so I was able to see her line of lipstick and knew exactly what I was looking for. Let me just say this colour is my new obsession! It’s this dark purply red colour that isn’t FullSizeRender (7)overpowering.  I can’t wait to order more of her line of lipsticks, she has such different colors that I’m in love with.  I would wear this color with more of aFullSizeRender (10) grungier look, which is more of my style anyway.  I added a photo just of the color on myself to show what it looks like on.     Hope everyone has a great first week of 2015!

We’re back!

First things first I’d like to apologize for being on hiatus for a little while.  Finals came and destroyed my sleeping habits and then with the holidays everything was crazy. With that being said I really hope everyone had a great holiday! In this post I am going to finish the rest of the products.  However I’m not going to individually write about each one because if I did that this post would be 6 pages long! If you have any questions about any of the products just leave a comment and I will be sure to answer.  I’ve gotten to use each product and I absolutely love all of them. We will start posting on the regular again now that our lives have started to slow down again. Hope everyone has a great day!

Day 5-9

These past couple days have been busy, so first I have to say sorry for not posting for a few days.  Kaylee and I went to New York City for the weekend, so we were a little too excited about that to be able to post.  I figured to just write quFullSizeRenderick little things about each item, which are all fantastic by the way! So day 5 was…Midnight Fleur by NEST.  To me it is a scent I would wear in the evening.  There is this strong flower scent which is really actually lovely.  I’ve never had a perfume of theirs before but I definitely would buy another from them.  Day 6 is Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lighting Serum.  To me personally I don’t exactly need a aFullSizeRender (1)ge spot lightener, I’m 18, as of now I don’t have any wrinkles ( thank god).  I guess it is never too early to start preventing though! I put it on and it was this weird feeling on my skin, it kind of felt like it was tightening, which I’m guessing is a good thingI!  Day 7 was Purity by Philosophy. This product is something that I’m very familiar with, and I love it. My mother has been ordering Philosophy since I can FullSizeRender (2)remember, it was the first face wash I ever used.  There is this simple light smell which is very relaxing, and it doesn’t leave any residue on your skin, but leaves it smooth and clean.  Day 8 was IT Cosmetics Mascara.  I’m obsessed with mascara, FullSizeRender (3)and when I say obsessed I mean like in an unhealthy way.  I use a total of 5 mascaras, now 6, a day.  So adding this mascara to my collection is very exciting.  Lets just say I’m in love with it.  The brush creates this brilliant effect on the lashes that fans them out and adds volume.  I greatly recommend this product! Finally today’s product, day 9 is StriVectin Wrinkle and Stretch Mark Tightener. I’m currently praying this works, weight has not always been kind to me.  Stretch marks FullSizeRender (4)are embarrassing, and yes I do have them. I put the lotion on the areas, I will report back with the results! Now that I have gotten caught up with the days I will continue to post regularly. Day 10 here we come!
