Happy Monday, Valentines Day is right around the corner so I paired up with a fellow beauty guru on youtube and we decided to give you two great Valentines Day Makeup Options. I am showing you how to do a soft smokey eye and nude lip. She is doing more of a flirty pink Valentines Day Look. If you want to check out her video you sure can, here is her channel link
Lets talk makeup, this Eye look was super easy. I wanted to do a smokey eye, but I wanted to make sure that it was wearable. You can wear this look in the day time because it is so soft, or night time. I decided to go with a nude pink lip & a shiny gloss so that the eyes would appear softer..
First , I applied the Highlight shade Virgin underneath the brow lightly.
Then I used the duo end pencil (brown side) and I applied it to the crease and made a V in the outer edge of the lid.
Next I blended it out with a crease brush
Then I applied Sin all over the Lid
Next I applied Buck everywhere that I used the Brown Pencil with a crease brush , I also applied it to the outer half of the lower lid
Then I went in with creep and only applied it to the deepest part of my crease. Use a very light hand, this makes the crease look deeper & your eyes look more defined.
Then with naked I blended with a blending brush softly you just want to smoke it out.
Next I used the Jordana 12 hr eye pencil on the upper lash line & smoked it out with a smudge brush.
Last I lined my water line & tight line with a black pencil . Don’t forget to curl your lashes and apply mascara. Your all finished.
Now Lets talk Hair!
I Curled My hair with a 1 ½ inch Curling wand . I curled away from my face & I used 1 inch sections. * Make sure to spray your curls with hairspray after each curl is curled individually.
Then I let it completely cool down. * Don’t skip this important step or else your curls will not last all night.
Then I hairspray my entire head again.
Next I Used silk serum & applied it to my ends to add shine. I also ran my fingers through my hair softly to open up the curl a lot more.
Tease the Hair to add volume.
I took a 1 inch section on my right side and twisted it. I then pinned it to the back.
Now on the left side, where my bangs are combed to I am going to do two twists & pin them.
I do not like flat hair so I tugged on the crown a little to make it more voluminous. You can hairspray it again if you like but its all finished.
Simple Hair & Makeup for valentines day!
I hope you guys are as excited about the day of love, as I am!
What are you going to do for Valentines Day?

Remember, Beauty Comes From within So let it Shine!
Welcome to 2014 , Its a new year ! Today I thought I would reflect on last years Beauty Favorites! Things that I love & Tell you why!
First Off Hair & Skin: Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo & Conditioner have literally saved My hair from brittle distraction! I Got them together at Cosco for $20, The smell is amazing & right away I noticed a difference!
My Absolute Favorite fragrance for 2013 Is the Pink Sweet & Flirty Perfume from Victorias Secrets ! It is a very girly, fruity with a hint of flower scent & the best part is it only cost $20
I have used aveeno for most of the year but Clean & clear morning burst cleanser has been the star… The one I am using right now is this one which I won’t get again because It has caffeine But the Fruit Infusions kind is so great! They smell good , they are gentle enough for daily use & they are just so refreshing!
Lately I have gone back to the Silk From Silk essentials I got this at regency beauty institute & it works amazing on styled hair, It makes you look like you just came out of a salon! So silk , soft & shiny…
Now Going on to Makeup!
For Eyeshadow I am absolutely loving the L’oreal Wear infinite kerrys bronzes quad the colors are some amazing bronzy neutrals, that are so pigmented & rich!
I also added this ELF $1 Eyeshadow quad in Drama because it is the perfect smokey eye, the eyeshadows are put together nicely to give you a beautiful easy smokey eye! For just a dollar you can’t beat that!
Eyebrows are a big must do every single day! I have used pencils, shadows, gels & all the above but I keep going back to Elf Eyebrow Kit : Medium It has a gel & A Shadow Its just fantastic! IT only cost $3 & it even comes with a really great eyebrow brush!
A Blush I keep on coming back to , to the point where I have hit pan is The Elf Blush: Tickled Pink It is a great universally Flattering everyday blush… It works with any look & it is just my go to blush!
Next is a Random Favorite , My Bow! I have made these bows myself… I did a DIY Bow Clip Blog post already showing you how to do this but it is so great & I am not going to lie to you but I am obsessed with BOWS!
I have tried a lot of foundations but by far my favorite to use is the Loreal magic Nude liquid powder foundation! It is a liquid foundation with a powder finish, it feels like no other drugstore foundation , it has a medium coverage & it leaves your face look natural..
The concealer duo I have been loving & has been working really well is the Elf $1 All over face concealer: Honey & The Kirkland mineral exact concealer .. I use the elf concealer to conceal blemishes & The Kirkland Concealer in yellow for under the eyes! It works amazing together!
My absolute favorite bronzer this year is the Elf Glow: Bronzed It is a mineral bronzer .. It is a neutral brown rather than warm so it is perfect for contouring!
So my favorite nail polishes of the year are Wet N Wild Candilicious , Sinful Colors: Tempest & Avon: Midnight Plum.. These nail polish are so beautiful they dry fast, apply evenly, & are really pigmented with the first coat!
Last , But not least is…. LIPSTICKS! I have raved about these lipsticks in my blog before because they are that great .. I did an in-depth review about the jordana twist & Shine balm Stains Honey Love & cranberry Crush.. They are really inexpensive at $2.99 a piece , they are moisturizing , pigmented & the best part is it is long lasting (leaves a stain)… The LA Colors Lipstick & lipgloss DUO is also another lip product I have relentlessly talked about because they are soft, creamy but they have a more matte effect & the best part is it leaves a stain that is gorgeous! Plus they are only $1 at the dollar tree , these are my fAvorite shades Flushed & Charmed…
So here is my Makeup look for today! I have talked about the profusion palettes At walgreens & the dollar tree… I am using the Dazzle me Petite Palette on my eyes to give me a more neutral eye!
This shirt is from Wet Seal Just in case you are wondering!

So Now its time to show you my makeup look & Outfit I did try to use the products from last months Ipsy in my look today…I decided to do more of a punk outfit so I had to do a dark navy smokey eye as well!…
For the eyes I used The Bella terra pigment in Navy all over my lids.. I also used these two grayish blues in the crease to blend out the blue (I got this palette at the Dollar tree Sorry I don’t know what brand it is…)
on my lips I used the Starlooks pencil in Tipsy then I applied Wet N wild lipstick in the color 547B to tone down how bright this lipstick is then I topped it off with my current favorite gloss Sinful colors: Goddess
On My cheeks I used Elf Studio Blush: Berry Merry For the Nails I am wearing Avon Nailpolish & Revlon Facets of Fusia on my thumb, ring finger & Middle finger… For My eyeliner I smoked out Jordana 12 r eyeshadow pencil: Stay on black..

This palette is rich, pigmented & gorgeous. It has 4 Different shades , which are all shimmery. This cost me $2.00 at Walgreens , its on sale so go check it out! The only thing I don’t like is how small some of these shadows are , I wish they would have picked a different palette layout!

Then, Apply This yellow into the center of the lid & Lower Lid…
Then, Apply this Deep Olive Color in the crease & outer ⅓ of the Lid, As well as in the lower ⅓ of the lower lid…

Smashbox Audition Taupe Palette This palette is great it has a eyebrow gel, and eyebrow powder,a cream highlighter, a cream eyeshadow and three neutral eyeshadows
Elf Warm Bronzer I have been loving this as a bronzer but also a BLUSH! I swirl all the colors together to make a beautiful bronzy blush then I add just the blush color onto the apples of my cheeks , its truely BONDBEAUTYFUL
Nyx Cream Blush -HotPink This is another product I got in an Ipsy bag, This is such a pigmented blush in a cream form.. You have to be super careful because you only need the slightest amount on your brush , or fingers , a little goes a long way… If I find I applied to much blush then I dip my brush in my Rimmel Stay matte powder and I apply it over top to sheer out the hot pink craze and give me a beautiful flush on my cheeks
