Today I am so excited to bring to you this tutorial because this is a collaboration with two other beauty you tubers! I am collaborating with Piper Hampton & Velmalee. They are amazing & talented. Plus they are also very entertaining which is why we make videos right? Any ways we are each doing a one brand tutorial using a drugstore brand. I decided to do Wet N Wild because of how CHEAP they are. I rarely use the word cheap to describe a brand, but I wanted to get my point across. They are so affordable that sometimes they get looked over because of it. Just because they are CHEAP doesn’t mean they are CHEAP. Their products are amazing and to prove it I went all out glam with this Bombshell look; using only their products.
This look is so beautiful and anyone can recreate it, I make it super simple. Its sexy & perfect for a special occasion! (Tutorial down below)

This look is something that I did recently on my 100 days of makeup I am doing on my Instagram. Basically every day for 100 days I am challenging myself to do a different makeup look. I did this on Sunday on Instagram and so I decided to show you how to do this on my youtube today!(The exact picture is down below) If you are interested in all my makeup looks I have done check out my Instagram!
(In the Instagram picture I used different products but I recreated the same look using Wet n Wild down below!)
Let me know what makeup tutorials you want to see next!
Today we are talking about nude nail polish. Nude nail polish is very popular this summer along with nude lips & natural blushes! I will be talking about nude lip options & natural blushes in later posts. As for today I have 5 nude polish options to share with you. I also went through the trouble of watching them for you! So enjoy!(See video below)
First is Forsythe by Color Club. I love this because it is a cool toned nude. Which is unique and not seen very often. This formula is nice and thin. I think it applies evenly and wears for a long time.
An alternative to Forsythe is this one from Wet N Wild called Yo Soy. This one is almost an exact match to the Color Club polish shown earlier. It may be a tiny bit darker but still beautiful either way. It is again a cooler toned nude. If you want to try a cool nude this one is only $1.99 at the drugstore. (I love this formula better than the Color Club one)
This next one is a beautiful warm nude. L.A. Colors Color Craze polish in Simply. This is a polish that can easily be found at the Dollar Tree. For being the most affordable polish I am going to show you it definitely doesn’t disappoint. It is such a smooth formula and will last just as long as any other polish.
This one is more of a milky transparent nude. Wet N Wild 2% Milk. I have the old version but they do have this same shade in the packaging they have now. This is one of my first nude polishes and it has a special spot in my heart.
These next three are more of the pink nudes. I still consider them nudes. First is the Sinful Shine with Gel Tech called I’m Blushing. If you have tried the Sinful Colors Polishes and you don’t like them, do not despair this formula is different. It is a gel like formula that drys fast and is very shiny. I have not had any problems with streakiness.
This one is my absolute first nail polish every. Revlon nail polish in sheer petal. It is more of a transparent pink nude. Perfect for brides, interviews, work or everyday wear. It makes your natural nails look better. So beautiful and classy. It can be built up to a more opaque color shown on the bottle.
This one is so similar to the Revlon polish except the formula is thinner and more transparent. I love this formula so great and smooth. L’OREAL wishful pinking. This is more pink and less peachy.
So whats up with the crazy makeup? On my social media I am doing a new makeup look everyday for 100 days. I thought since right now color eyebrows are the trend I would do a fun purple look. Check out my social media for my other pictures!

Happy, happy Friday! Friday is date night/ go out night. So I wanted to do a look that you can do for going out tonight. So here is a smokey eye. I love green because it makes brown eyes pop, or any eyes pop. There is something about green that just makes you want to look. I hope you guys really enjoy this look, and don’t be afraid to change things and make it your own. For those of you who like to actually visually see how to do this check the video below. 1. Put tape on the outer part of your eye. Helps create a crisp line
2. Use a shimmery green eyeshadow on the lid (shade 1 below)
3. Add a mid-tone brown to the crease (Shade 2)
4. Add a darker olive green(shade 3) to the crease & outer corner sweeping it inward close to the lash line (Also mix with the mid-tone brown on the lower lid)
5. Add a shimmery champaign pigment(shade 4) to the center of the lid to brighten
6. Add that same champaign eyeshadow in the tear duct area
NYC Expert Last Matte Lip Lacquer: NOHO Matte Nude
I hope you guys like this look.. Also on my Instagram I am posting a new makeup look every day for 100 days. I want to really challenge myself to create a different look everyday. So make sure to head over to my Instagram! I also now have a Tumblr & Flickr @Bondbeautyful
Today is such a hot a dry day here in Arizona. I would much rather have dry heat then humidity! On the other hand, something I do not want to look dry is my face. Sometimes I just wish my foundations made my skin look more fresh & illuminated. Well ladies, I am here to do a review on a product that claims to do just that.
This is the Hard Candy Look Pro Illuminate & Strobing Mix-In Drops. It is a multi-purpose, iridescent facial enhancer that instantly creates radiant, dewy complexion. Or so it claims to do so. You add it into your foundation, into your moisturizer or you can use it alone to highlight. Right now strobing is very popular.
First, lets talk about packaging. It is glass bottle with a dropper. This makes it very easy to mix into your foundation. I have been using this for about two weeks now. My favorite way to use this is to mix one drop into my Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation. I love the finish it gives me with that one. We will talk more about that later.
These drops are very thin and easy to blend out. Its a white formula with an iridescent pinkness to it that catches the light beautifully. Looks very pearly to me. As a highlight alone it is beautiful. I recommend ,if you are using it to highlight, to spread a drop on your hand first. Then dab it on your face with your finger. It will be very easy to blend, but if you want to build the intensity I suggest doing it while it is still wet. I notice that when I try to add more when it is already dry the formula breaks down. It ends up looking cakey and it balls up. This is not something I would use for strobing unless I am using it as a base for a powder highlight. I think its more of a everyday highlight.
My absolute favorite way to us this is mixed into my foundation. I mix a single drop into my foundation then spread it around with my finger before dotting it onto my face. I notice that it gives me a fresh natural looking finish when mixed into a matte foundation (shown above). I it doesn’t look dewy or shimmery just very fresh and healthy.
I talk more about it and show a demo of how I like to apply it in the video below.
I have really been into a subtle highlight look lately. With that said this product is perfect for me. It gives me a healthy glow and I love it!
So, are you into a subtle highlight or strobing? Let me know in the comments!
This summer a big makeup trend that is going around is aqua eyes. Whether in eyeliner form or eyeshadow it is very aqua is a very trendy! So I wanted to show you this easy way to add aqua or blue into your makeup look! (video at the end) I just grabbed a wide mix of eyeshadows that work. You do not need a particular palette just grab what you have and lets go!

Step By Step
Apply tape to your eye. This provides that crisp line & makes it easier to do winged liner at the end.
Apply this teal/blue into the crease using a crease brush
3. Deepen up the crease with this cool grey & a crease brush. Blend Blend Blend
4. Blend using a mix of these two browns (lightly) (also smudge on lower lid)
5. Apply a light creme shade onto the lid & under brow
6. Apply a light gold shimmery shade in the tear duct area to brighten
7. Apply a blue in the water line & create a winged line using a blue liquid eyeliner.
8. Finally warm up the face with bronzer & neutral blush!
Thats how easy it is! I love this look because it combines a cooler trendy eye look with a really warm, sun kissed face.
Last do not forget the lips! I think a matte nude lip makes this look very wearable & realistic. If you like adventure try a bright coral lip!

May is basically over and I have been testing a lot of different products. Among all that there are several products that I have been absolutely loving. To the point that I have been consistently using them all month long. So today I will share my favorite makeup products with you!
So if your ready to hear about some great drugstore & high end products then lets do this!
Elf Healthy Glow Bronzer Sunkissed: This is a beautiful bronzer to give you a sun kissed summer glow. I use this all over the cheeks , on the forehead & on the tip of my nose.
Elf All Over Color Stick Pink Lemonade: This is such a user friendly cream blush. I usually swatch it on my hand then run a brush over it. I find it blends so easy into the skin and you don’t need to set it with powder either! As you can see when blended out it looks like a beautiful flush of color!
Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Palette: This is a great neutral palette. I love that its so pigmented and that it has a good variety of matte & shimmer eyeshadows. You can create lots of beautiful looks with this and I’m obsessed!
LA Colors Grafix Eyeliner Black: &Coastal Scents Brush BR-C-N15 : A trick I have been doing this month is using this eyeliner with this brush. This brush makes it easy to create a thin liner & wing look. I also find that this brush would work great for beginners because it gives you more control!
Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara: This is a perfect blend between a wet and dry formula. Right in the middle which gives you volume & Length! Great drugstore mascara!
I am wearing all of my favorites in my look today. I decided to do a simple neutral wearable eye and a soft popsicle red lip with a bronzey cheek. I love using the bronzer as a blush topper. It adds a subtle highlight & a healthy glow to the skin. This look is perfect for this summer time!
I love this neutral palette so much because of how versatile it is. This is one of the simplest looks you can do. Its perfect for an everyday look because it just flatters the eye without looking like its too much.
A more in-depth tutorial video will be up on Wed so stay tuned!
What are some of your favorite beauty products this month?
Today I’m talking about skin care. I am one of those gals that believe less is more, well typically. I usually am very basic when it comes to skin care. Even so , I do believe that to have beautiful makeup look you do have to take care of your skin. The healthier your skin looks the better your makeup looks! So today I’m reviewing the Skin & Co Truffle Therapy Skin Serum.
Thick Plastic Top
Fragrance? Yes Smells like shea butter (pleasant not to strong, fades after applying)
Comes from organic agriculture
Zero% Sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates
Restores skin with undetected radiance
Fine lines start fading
skin looks firmer and brighter
creates healthful ,youthful complexion
I have used this for almost two weeks and I’m going to share with you all the information you will need!
My skin typically has large pores in the cheek area and is very dry. I also have blochy complexion as well. After almost two weeks of using this serum this is how my skin looks( no filters or editing).
What I have Noticed:
Healthy looking skin
makeup goes on over top smoother
skin looks less rough/textured
no reaction with my sensitive skin
skin feels firmer
skin is not as blochy
apply makeup as usual
I have noticed that my skin looks all and all healthier. Usually even with makeup my skin looks cakey and rough in person. I did not change my foundation or any other makeup products when trying this. My skin looked a lot smoother and more natural when using this. It was the first thing I noticed. It also didn’t detract from the longevity of my makeup. I feel like my face makeup even lasted longer when I used this. Like it just the makeup sat on my skin a lot better. Honestly this is a skin care product that is here to stay for me! I am very pleased with it. I am a firm believer that the healthier your bare skin looks the better your makeup over top will look! I also love how it hydrated my skin. I tend to have very dry skin and I felt like this worked wonders for the dryness. Usually by the end of the day my nose and cheeks are dry. The serum really made a difference with that.
These are my honest thoughts. Here are some unfiltered un edited pictures of my face with makeup after using this.
First picture is without flash.
Second is with flash.
