Im so excited to be doing the Ultimate Wet N Wild New Releases Post! I have done a first impressions & a full review on all the new products I got at the beginning of January. Wet N Wild is really stepping up their game this year. None of the products I have tried so far from them are duds! So I’m going to keep it short and simple and let the videos do the talking enjoy!
First I have a full first impressions where I take you throughout the day and see how all these products wear.
Cushion Contour $5.99
Cushion Highlight $5.99
Megaglo Highlight $4.99
Contour Stick $3.99
Blush Stick $3.99
Photo Focus Foundation $5.99
After Using these products for almost a month and really trying them in all different ways I have a full review on the Foundation..
Overall the Foundation is my personal favorite! I think it looks beautiful on camera, in pictures & in person. As it warms up to the skin it becomes almost skin like. It looks so natural and beautiful. Also it is a High Medium Coverage when applied with a brush & it is perfect for my needs.
This is one of my Recent Editorial Style Instagram Pics where I’m wearing the Foundation. Also it matches perfectly with my undertone.
WetNWild Photo Focus Foundation Golden Beige (Matches Fit Me Matte & poreless 220)
As far as the other products I tried the cushion products are amazing. I love how they dry down completely so I don’t need to set it. It also lasted longer than any of the other contour / highlight products I have tried from wet n wild.
I also love the undertone of their contour shades, the cushion & stick. They are a perfect natural shade that isn’t too warm or too cool. I feel like these are the most universal shades. Plus the cushions last me 12 hrs (when applied with a brush)
WetnWild is one of the most affordable brands at the drugstore; and for them to come out this year with some amazing products is fantastic. I feel like they came out swinging!

Its time for May Favorites. May favorites is basically where I give you suggestions for beauty products that I have used all month long and have loved. I am so exciting because I am moving into my house in a week or so. So anywho lets start with all my beauty favorites.
Everything I am wearing in my makeup today are favorites! So lets go through them.
For my Face I have a couple blushes ,bronzer & highlight that I have been really loving.
Elf Mineral Blush (#1): I love this because it is so soft and beautiful for this summer. On me it looks more coral and peachy so I have been loving this with more of a bronzey eye.
Elf Blush & Bronzer Duo Fiji Matte (#2): I have been loving this bronzer because it is a matte shade but it is not to dark so I can use it to contour with or to warm up the face. I am personally really impressed with these ELF powder products because they are not dry and they have a good kick of color!
Elf Baked Blush (#3 Left) : Passion Pink I love this because it gives such a glow to the skin and for a blush it is so gorgeous! I feel like this could be a beautiful highlight as well for deep skin.
ELF Baked Blush (#3 Right): PInktastic I use this as a highlight and I love it! You have to be a little careful because it has great payoff and sometimes it is easy to go overboard. Even though it is marketed as a blush I love it for a glowy champaigne highlight!
Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette (#1): This is such a beautiful palette and I am honestly real impressed with the pigmentation it has. I love this because it has a good selection of pigmented romantic shades (similiar to the naked 3)
Elf Smudge Pot: Aint that Sweet (#3 right) http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/1364/
Elf Smudge Pot: Back to the Basics (#3 left) http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/1364/
Elf single eyeshadow: mocha http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/9261/
Elf single eyeshadow: peach fizz http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/9261/
Elf Single eyeshadow: moon dust http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/9261/
Elf Single Eyeshadow: Pink Ice http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/9261/
For the lips I have been loving this Wet N Wild Balm Stain Rico Mauve It is absolutely amazing! I love how it looks for this summer time! Honestly any time I use the Coastal Scents palette I always pair I with this lippy!
So Don’t forget I am doing a monthly favorite makeup look tutorial coming soon (tomorrow) and this is the look! SNEEK PEEK
Happy Monday! It rained here in Arizona last night and this morning the weather is beautiful & fresh. So here we go I have a review on a diamond in the rough type of product! I found these at the Dollar Tree and for the price of $1 they are amazing.
So there are four shades in the whole collection. These are meant to be highlighters but I found that some of these have enough color to work as a blush as well! I find that these last me 8 hrs if I don’t touch my face. I think they look so beautiful in pictures and videos especially! But, these do have glitter flecks in them. So when they fade they leave behind glitter which is not appealing , but as long as you dont touch your face they should be fine. They blend out super easy, I like to use my finger or the E.LF Small stipple brush. I these do have a lot of color pay off but they blend out smooth, and give a good flush of color to the skin.
So Lets talk about the shades and how they look!
Pink glow is a gorgeous pink with gold shimmer in it! It works well as a blush & highlighter in one! (this is what I have on in todays video) For the purpose of the video I didn’t wear it alone I also wore summer glow in the highlight area. This one is probably my favorite one of the whole collection, because I feel like its perfect for the summer time!
Summer glow is a beautiful highlight champagne shade. This one does have silver glitter in it but they are very fine! I find that when it wears off (which doesn’t happen for about 8 hrs unless you touch your face a lot) it does leave behind glitter on your face which is no fun. I think this would be perfect for fair skin!
Copper Glow Is a beautiful bronzey shade that I think is perfect for the summer sunkissed type of look. It is very brassy but when blended out it is amazing! This one also has heavy glitter in it but when blended out it look great on the skin!
Mauvey Glow is a beautiful blush shade as well that will also give you the glow without needing to apply two products! This one is not my favorite because I feel like the glitter flecks are a lot more noticeable but it is still beautiful.
For only $1 Its worth a try for sure , I love them and I find that they work as a great blush base as well!
So lets talk about my look for the day!
Till next time..
Remember beauty comes from within so let yours shine!
So Im a little late with this post, but at the end of each month (or beginning of the next month) I like to post my Monthly makeup/beauty favorites. October was such a fun month for me because of all the Halloween stuff going on! So there are a little random favorites this month because of Halloween.
Like always you can watch the video to see the products , but here on my blog I like to get into more detail about why I like the products etc.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation- This is one of my favorite foundation in the drugstore because of its full coverage capability’s and its staying power. I have never had a problem with the staying power; I put it on in the morning and its on all day. I also never had a problem with it oxidizing ; which basically means it never changed colors on me throughout the day.
Wet N Wild Eye palette : Poster Child- Wet N Wild has some of the best eye shadows out at the drugstore right now! These palettes especially are amazing , this is a newer palette that has only bright, mostly matte, shades. I love the pigmentation , the eye shadows feel soft and smooth. I used this palette for all my Halloween looks this year and really enjoyed it!
Kirkland Eyeshadow Palette- This palette is from Cosco and I decided to pull it out last month because I wanted to do a lavender bridal look for on of my blog posts. A lot of you may have already read this post and if not I encourage you to do so. I posted pictures showing you step by step how to achieve the look. This palette really surprised me , the eye shadows felt smooth and almost like velvet.
Doll 10: Highlighter- This is a cream Highlighter that is very subtle. Sometime we see pictures where the woman has a glow on her cheek bones , that is all because of a highlighter. Where some highlighters are very glowy and can make you look oily this one is more natural ; which is perfect for everyday use.
Kiss Eyelashes 01- Im not one to where eyelashes everyday because its so hard to find natural looking ones. But with that said I have been loving these ones, and you can find them at Walmart or any drugstore.
Wet N Wild Color Icon Lip Liner: Cherry Red – This is the lip liner that I used for Halloween and for some of my tutorials as well . It works amazing for only being $1 it stays on all night even when I eat and talk all night.
Wet N Wild Lipstick: Cherry Frost $1- This is the lipstick I paired up with the lip liner and like I said before for only $1 it works like magic , very impressive.
Wet N Wild Fantasy Lipstick : Black- I Used this lipstick for my Harley Quinn Blog/ Tutorial and I loved it perfect for Halloween.
Starlooks Lipgloss: Guilty Pleasures- This lip gloss is a nude lip gloss that I have used all month long. It is not sticky , it is instead very comfortable on the lips and the color pay off is pretty good . I got this in recent Ipsy bag and have really enjoyed it.
I am wearing some of these October Favorites on today so you can see how they look on! I love favorites because then they give you an idea of some good makeup products that are in stores right now!
Thank you guys for all your support I really do appreciate it!
So what is a makeup product that was your favorite for October? Let me know in the comments!
Don’t Forget Beauty Comes from within so let yours shine!
I am so excited to share this Bridal Makeup Look with you guys ! For this look I paired up with Lover.ly , which is a online one stop shop for brides. I was really surprised when I visited their website, it really is a one stop shop! I wish this was around when I got married it would have made wedding planning a whole lot easier!
They sent me pictures of three different dresses and I immediately got inspired by the beautiful strapless dress with purple detailing at the bottom. The first thing I noticed on this dress was the beautiful ombre fabric on the dress. It turned this dress into a non- traditional wedding dress. This gave me lots of leg room for what type of makeup to do. Usually bridal makeup is more neutral and natural; but for this look I wanted to add a modern twist by having lilac eye makeup instead of the usually browns. It added flavor and a modern twist to this bridal look without making it look informal. The sweetheart neckline gave me even more of a reason to use a such a feminine color on the eyelid.
This Lilac Bridal Look that I have created for you will compliment this dress perfectly. The Lilac eye makeup really ties the makeup and the gown together nicely. I wanted this look to be fun and flirty but still elegant. I wanted you to notice the makeup but I didn’t want to take away from how stunning the dress looks. So enough of all the blabbing lets get started with how to accomplish this look. (List of the products used will be below).
First I applied a white cream eyeshadow base to the Eyelid area. (to help the lilac color show up more vibrantly.)
I then applied a cream matte shade to the brow bone for a subtle highlight. (because the dress is so eye catching I didn’t want to distract with shimmery makeup!)
Then I applied a matte Lilac Shade to the Eyelid. (Using patting motions for the most color payoff).
Next I applied a Light Cranberry Shimmery Shade on the outer half of the lid. (Blend the two shades together)
Apply a Medium Brown shade to the crease with a crease brush.
To deepen the crease I used a Matte Grey shade in the crease and lightly to the outer third of the lid. Then make sure to blend with a fluffy blending brush.
I Also added that same Grey in the lower lid. I also added a pearly white shade to the inner corner of the lid. (doing this opens your eyes more and it looks stunning in pictures)
Next is winged liner. I also added a dark eyeliner to the tight line and in between the upper lashes to add volume. Then in the waterline I added a white eyeliner pencil to open up the eyes even more!
No Bridal look is done without adding lashes! (Lashes really show up beautifully in pictures so even if you are not a lashes girl I would highly recommend them for your wedding pictures).
Since the dress is a strapless dress it adds a sexy vibe to the bridal look ; so I wanted to incorporate that into my eye makeup with a winged eyeliner. Having your eye makeup done is only half of it, next is having flawless face makeup.
First I applied a Matte Bronzer underneath the cheek bone for a nice contour. (Even if you never contour or highlight your face doing so on your wedding will make such a difference in your pictures. Don’t you want that bridal glow?!)
Next I applied my blush, I chose a blush that is more of a natural Pink shade. (you don’t want to much purple or it won’t look natural and will take away from the dress.)
Last I applied a pink highlight shade to the tops of my cheek bones, nose & cupid bow.
For the Lips I decided to do more of a nude pink shade . I used a matte lipstick and then later added a lipgloss for that shiny finish. (Matte or Shiny is up to you, they both photograph beautifully).
This makeup look is so easy you can do it at home. If you are getting it done by a makeup artist make sure to do a trial run. I hope you guys like this look, if you do feel free to pin these pics on your Pinterest for later! Thank you so much for all your support and also thanks to Lover.ly for featuring me on their website! Make sure to check out their website!
Products I Used:
Covergirl Stay Fabulous Foundation
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Instant Age Rewind Neutralizing Concealer (Under the eyes inverted triangle shape)
Its February Favorites time! Its the beginning of March , which means its time for me to look at the makeup I have loved for the month of February. All of these are drugstore products so you get to see what products have worked & I have loved for the month of Love. If you want to see me what I have been loving click below!
So like I said this last month was Valentines day month. This means that I have tried a lot of different eye looks. I have done a few tutorials for you guys which means I have been experimenting like crazy on myself ! I do have a few eye products so bare with me!
1. I have been really trying to take care of my lips (Preparing for lots of kisses). I have been using the Mojito Lip Balm; which i received in my January Ipsy bag. This is such a moisturizing, healing lip balm. At first I was scared to try it because It looks like medicine , but don’t worry its a safe lip balm!
2. Next I have been loving my new E.L.F. Lip exfoliator, this retails for $3 and it works wonders. I just wet my lips and scrub away then you can wash it off or lick it off! It is super easy and convenient to use because of the lipstick form & It leaves my lips feeling soft!
3. I also received this Skiin Eye soothing & Smoothing Cream in my January Ipsy bag. I feel like it has really made the skin around my eyes really soft and hydrated. I didn’t realize how dry my eyes were till I started using this. Now its a part of my morning & night routine!
4. Elf Little Black Book Warmth Edition. I was really impressed with these eyeshadows. Elf’s palettes tend to me inconsistent as far as shade quality but this one was all around pretty good. The colors were buttery soft, easy to blend and they really did well with picking out all different types of finishes for these eyeshadows.
5. Elf Mineral Eyeshadows in Miss Popular & Lunch Break. Lunch break is more of a warm brown with some sparkle. Miss Popular is more of a purple taupe color with a silky finish. I really found these quite soft & creamy like. They were really pigmented and looked beautiful. I was again surprised with these , these are new to there collection so if you haven’t had a chance to try them out give them a try!
6.Elf eyelid Primer: this has been and old favorite. This is from there essential line, I find it very comparable to the urban decay primer potion. It does exactly the same thing & Lasts just as long.
7. Elf Hd Lifting Concealer is a brightening concealer I have been using underneath the eyes. It is thin and easy to work with all you need is your finger to really blend it into the skin. I find that all I need to conceal my under eye circles is foundation and this concealer.
A new mascara to my collection this month is the L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara in water proof. I probably won’t get the waterproof version again. But as far as the Mascara goes I do find that It adds volume. I just find myself being very careful because of the funky brush. Turning the wand one way and using one side of the brush will give you a different result then using the brush another way.
8. Now these bases have been my all time most used favorite for this month. These are the E.L.F. long lasting lustrous eyeshadow in Gala & Soiree.
9. Gala is that deep brown shade some shimmer in it. These are so creamy and bouncy! It reminds me of the dream bounce blushes, feels very similar. Soiree is the beautiful deep cranberry shade which I used on valentines day! These are really great bases they last all day by themselves and they definitely extend the life of your eyeshadow.
10. Last is the Elf Baked Highlighter : Pink Diamonds This is a beautiful pinky highlight. This can be sheer or using water you can make it more pearly on your cheek bone.
So those are all my favorites for this month… What have you been loving for this month?

It is a beautiful monday & I thought what a better day then to learn something new! So today Im going to be telling you all about highlighting! Im going to be answering some simple questions: what is highlighting? What kinds of highlighters are there? Why should I highlight? How do I apply it & Where? What brushes do I need? So lets begin…
Products Talked About:
ELF Shimmering facial whip: Lilac petal
Bare Minerals Face & Body Color: Geniune Jade
Smashbox Face & Body Palette: Gold Mine
Elf Glow Bronzing Powder: Sunkissed
Color Institute Twist Up Blush Stick
Neutrogena Concealer: Fair
1. Whats Highlighting?
I know we all look at bridal magazines or celebrity magazines & it always looks like the light hits there cheeks & nose at just the right angle! Well thats not the case , they give that illusion using makeup , specifically a highlighter! So if you want to have that glow effect then keep reading!
Its A makeup product , it can be a powder , liquid or cream product That you apply to your face to add a glow or to extenuate certain features! (gives you a glow also known as bridal glow or flawless appearance) I wasn’t even outside when I took this picture but yet the sun managed to hit me right above my cheek bones! 😀 Its all about the highlighter!
2. What can be used to highlight with?
Well You can use a powder, cream or liquid that has a light shimmer or that is just lighter than your skin tone.. Usually they have a champagne color, pinky color, or gold tone to it!
3. Where do you highlight on your face?
So you can highlight on top of your cheek bones, bridge of your nose, cupids bow, center of fore head, underneath your brow, right above your brow & even on your chin (highlight areas you want people to notice on your face , & places you want the sun to hit just right)… You do not have to highlight on all of those areas but as you can see I did on most of those & it looks pretty good! … Usually women highlight on there cheek bones & Nose.
So I hope this was helpful .. For more information don’t forget to watch the video above! So here is my complete look for the day..
I went with a very natural eye look & Nude pink lip & A very Glowy highlight…
