So today im showing you my empties. What does that mean? These are products I have completely used up and are basically going in the trash. So why am I showing you my trash? Well now that I have completely used them up I have pretty much made up my mind on whether I would buy them again or whether they are just terrible products! So Im going to give you my OPINION of them..
So its been a crazy week but I wanted to put up a post for you beautyful ladys & Gents. I have been moving all week long ! We are getting a house! I am so excited about it so excited that I already filmed a home decor haul video and I’ll have it up pretty soon (as well as a blog post). If you want to see how I did my makeup today check it out..
Enjoy your Spring break!
Dont forget, beauty comes from within , so let yours shine!
Its early , I’m up and the kids are cozy in their beds still. Perfect time to share this makeup look with you beauties. I was recently looking through my makeup and realized that their is a lot of IPSY products that I have not tried yet! What!! I know pretty crazy, so I took everything out that I have not tried yet & made this beautiful makeup look with it. I also did a easy video tutorial to go along with this post for all you visual learners!
So the star of the show today is the Olive Green pigment , it is gorgeous! As soon as I saw it I new I had to make a look around this color! You don’t usually see wearable olive green eye makeup, but I think that this look turned out pretty darn wearable!
They Key to making a intense eye look wearable is making your face makeup & Lips look as natural as possible. So here are the products I used & the steps to create this look. Again If you are more visual then check the tutorial!
Step #1 : Prep
It is so important to prep your skin for makeup! Taking care of your skin is so important because it keeps your skin look smooth & less aged. Nobody wants to look 40 at 25!
1. Moisturizer first
2. Face Primer second
3. Exfoliate those beautiful lips too!
Step #2 : Makeup
Its time to apply some makeup & create a beautiful unique olive eye look. (which makes all eye colors look gorgeous especially brown or honey eyes!)
1. Apply a warm brown eyeshadow pencil to the lid & crease, then use your finger to blend it out. (this will be your base.. Do the eyes first so if you have any fall out it won’t mess up your face makeup.)
2. Then use a Midtone Cool brown (Blue heart) to apply into the crease & blend it out real well. (this is going to act as our transition color which will help blend the olive out better)
*the key in this eye look is blending really well so take your time doing this with a fluffy CLEAN blending brush!
3. Apply the olive green with a eyeshadow brush onto the out half of the lid & toward the crease. I used this pigment dry so instead of swiping with the brush just pat the color onto the lid; slowly building up the color.( don’t worry about fall out thats why we didn’t do our face makeup first!) Then blend the green and the crease color together using a Clean blending brush.
4. Apply the light pink in the duo underneath the brow to highlight & in the inner most corner of the eye.
5. Apply the Gold in the duo in the inner half of the lid and with the eyeshadow brush you are using carefully blend the olive green and gold together to make a smooth transition.
Face: (im skipping to the face next but I will be back to finish the eyes later!)
1. Apply your concealer & foundation
2. apply a brightenng concealer in an inverted triangle shape under the eyes to brighten , then powder your face
3. apply a bronzer to the hallows of your cheeks for a subtle contour
4. use a light natural pink blush
5. highlight your cheek bones for a beautiful glow
6. apply a lip stain to your lips (this is what gives your look such a natural effect the stain looks natural!) also apply the stain to the apples of your cheeks to add a naturally flushed appearance.
Eyes: (go back to the eyes to finish )
1. apply the eyeshadow pencil to lower lash line & blend with finger.
2. apply the mid toned brown to the lower lid & add the gold shadow to the inner ⅓ of lower lid
3. apply a black eyeliner to the tight line & a green eyeliner to the waterline
4. apply a liquid liner to the upper lashes making a cat eye winged liner.
5. apply mascara & false lashes if needed!
Thats it , I know it seems like a lot of steps because I really broke everything down so that I could be more detailed. This really is a fast look to accomplish and anyone can do this look! I hope you will try it out & use the hashtag #bondbeautyfullooks so that I can see too!
I hope you guys like seeing video tutorials & step by step instructions, if you do I will definitely do more!

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)
Yes , I am doing another halloween makeup look. This time I am doing a collab with another Beauty Guru on youtube , we decided to each pick a villain from the Batman Comics. I decided to do Harley Quinn and she is doing Poisen Ivy. I am so excited I loved the Batman Comics as a kid and still do , last year I did do a cat woman Halloween look too. A video is so much easier to do for this because of all the steps.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. This was actually a pretty easy look to do it just took a few steps ; but I felt like it turned out great.
For the face I decided to use my reg ular foundation and concealer rather than a white face paint. I really wanted Harley Quinn to still have her pretty look rather than look ugly. So all I did was apply my concealer & foundation, then I used a red blush on the cheeks.
The eyes are a little bit more complicated. I decided to do a black smokey eye on and smudge black eyeliner on the lower lid. Harley Quinn’s costume is half black and half red so I decided to incorporate the red in with the eyebrows. I just used a Lipliner and then applied red shadow on top to make it more long lasting. I did notice that my lashes got lost in all the black so falsies are definitely going to be your friend with this look. I think that all the curvy lines and dots really added to her look and made it seem more like her.I did decided to do a winged eyeliner on the upper lash line & fill in the waterline with a red lipliner. (Any time you use lipliner make sure to top of with red eyeshadow.) I also went onto of my winged liner with a glittery eyeshadow to add some sparkle and red into the eye look.
The mask was pretty easy to do with an eyeliner, if it is easier for you just map out your lines with a white or nude eyeliner first. I really wanted to keep the diamond trend going on the face because her costume has lots of diamonds on it. So thats why I made my mask look more like diamonds.
I wanted the Lips to be a big eye opener so I decided to do a diamond in the center of the lips but make it half black and half red. Then on the outside of the lips I used the opposite colors. I did decided to make my lips more pointy and a little thicker than my actual lips to play up the costume.

Like always I did do a video tutorial for you guys , but I also decided to take real detailed pictures for you guys to pin for later or for you to do right now!!!

Ok so lets get started with the makeup. (List of the products used will be at the end)
* She is almost always rocking this Dark golden brown smokey eye & of course you can’t forget her fake lashes that make her eyes look doe eyed! Its actually super simple to recreate.
*For her face she kept it simple. She warmed up her complexion and added a very soft coral blush. She does always contour her cheeks & highlights to bring out her bone structure. Then for her lips she used a nude or a slightly natural pink lipstick & gloss.
So thats it, as you can see it is pretty simple. I tried to use more affordable products , the only high end product is the face palette.
Today I am sharing a very special look, this is the look I did for my Wedding! I was married on May 11,2012 so on behalf of this being my anniversary month, I thought I would share this special Makeup with you! I am using all the exact products I used on the day 2 years ago! Lets go…
I did my own makeup for my engagement pictures and my wedding, you can do it too. This look will last you all day , look great in pictures and its easy to do. This is also a great Prom look, graduation look, or any special event .
I chose to do a more natural look for my engagement pictures so I skipped eyeshadow and went for a natural flush on the cheeks and lips … For My wedding I made sure to do a full face makeup, pictures tends to fade what you have on so you have to apply a little more makeup then you normally would..
So are the Products I used:
Maybelline 24 hr Super Stay Foundation
Elf Face Primer
Elf All Over Face Color: Pink Lemonade
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Divergent Highlight (Gold Highlight for the cheeks)
Elf Warm Bronzer
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil (Black)
Maybelline Butterfly Mascara Water proof
Essence I <3 volume mascara
NYC Lip Stain : Fuchsia
Covergirl Lipstick: Demure
Elf Makeup Mist & Set Spray
This makeup look lasted me all day with minimal touch ups. All I had to do was use some powder (because we had taken pictures outside, you get oily) and some lipstick.
I hope you find some inspiration in my makeup look… Share my blog or Facebook page….
