Last Week I did a blog about face makeup for beginners, well today I’m doing an easy Eye look + Lips for beginners…. THis eye look is so easy and simple to do! Its Perfect for school, work or everyday. Its a natural , neutral eye that can fit well with a nude soft lip or a Bold Date Lip!
So Lets start with some tips for all you beginners…
1. Apply (carmex) Lips balm on before starting your makeup to prevent dry & cracky lips
2. Use a base or eye primer to help with lasting power and to help the eyeshadows appear brighter
3. Be gentle around your eyes, dont tug ( Thats how you get wrinkles)
So now that you have some tips , lets beautify ourselves….

Like many of you, I dont like going out in public with absolutly NO makeup on! What if someone I know sees me! I dont want to scare anyone, even if im going to the gym.. So heres a simple easy makeup tutorial for the days your going to the gym, doing yard work, running errands or anything of that kind….
So important to have clean hands
Apply a tinted moisturizer (I like the elf tinted moisturizer because it has spf and some great vitamins)
Apply a powder of your choice ( Loreal True Match is great to add coverage or Rimmel stay matte powder is good to just keep your face matte all day..)
Eyebrows!! Eyebrows make a big difference so fill them in! (I love the elf Eyebrow kit, or jumbo eyebrow pencil, I also love Jordana FabuBrow)
Mascara , I feel like mascara is what makes you look feminine and naturally beautiful! (I dont want to look like a man at the gym and mascara fixes that problem!)
Last LiPBalm (lip balm keeps your lips hydrated while you are working out )
NOW your ready to go to the gym!!….
Te tutorial is super simple and it will help you feel more comfortable while you are at the gym ,shedding those pounds!…. Check out the video below to see how I do my makeup when im going to the gym..
What do you put on your face before you work out???

I hope you all are having a great day, Im doing a review for you today!…I recently bought 3 Jordana Twist & Shine Balm Stains from Walgreens!
They each cost $2.99 & each can be found at walgreens ( I haven’t seen Jordana products anywhere else)
The shades I got were ….
Honey Love(great nude)
Cranberry Crush(Perfect fall color)
Candied Coral(Gorgeous Fun,Bright Color)
*Fun Fact: Jordana is made by the same company that makes Milani!
These Jumbo Lip Balms Claim To be balm stains, Which remind me of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains…(The only difference revlon balm stains Retail for $7.99 and Jordana are only $2.99)
First off these balm stains have a very very faint fruity smell to them, nothing strong (Just in case your sensitive to smells..) I don’t mind, they smell delicious to me!
I love how they slide on so smoothly and evenly! Unlike ordinary lip stains , these are hydrating and moisturizing. The formula Is thin so its easy to forget that you have lipstick on… They do stain your lips for sure, making them all day!
Heres what they look like when they rub off ( Leaves Color behind hence the staining effect!) So your lips look flushed and gorgeous… I love this because I have dry lips and some lipsticks tend to fall in the cracks , which looks horrible. I had no problem with these they look smooth and have turned into my go to date night lip color!
They are incredible rich, and pigmented as you can see but if you want a more sheer flush of color you can use your finger to blend and sheer them out before it sets on your lips….
Like I said you can’t beat the lasting power, even after the shines gone you are left with a gorgeous flush of color all night long…
So to sum it up, These are great they last long, they are hydrating, they have great pigmentation, and they only cost $2.99…. Sorry Revlon But Jordana just won my heart!!!!….
So now that you heard what I think…. What do you think?? Have you Tried these yet? If so what colors are a must have??

I used Fabuliner BOLD on the top lash line, Lancome Liner in the waterline, And a little bit of gunmetal on the lower lid…
For the face I went pretty simple because of the dramatic eye..
I Used the New L’oreal Magic Liquid Powder Foundation, Topped it off with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder..
For the cheeks I made a fishy face and contoured along my cheek bones..
Then I Used the BLush shade in the Elf Warm Bronzer on the cheeks,
Last I highlighted The tops of my Cheek Bones with Smashbox Highlighter..
But for a look to be complete you cant forget about the LIPS!! lips will make or break you every time..
I chose to go with a deep nude Balm Stain By Jordana … For $2.99 Its a steal…
