So I did do a video for you so if thats easier then just click the video below if not then keep reading…
So here are the things I got in my March Ipsy plus some of the main products I used to create todays spring inspired look…
I was really impressed with this months IPSY Bag.. If you don’t know what Ipsy is it is a subscription service that cost $10.00 a month, they send you deluxe sample products plus a glam bag. * I am subscribed and I pay every month with my own money. I love it and I like to show you what I get and how to create a look with what I got…
So this is the makeup look I came up with.
Eyes: I used the Be a Bombshell Bora Bora Palette…
Taupe: In the crease & Outer V also in the lower outer half of lower lash line.
Gold: In the inner half of the lid + Inner part of the lower lash line
Copper: blended it in the outer half of the lid and the middle of the lower lash line… Make sure to blend
Teal: Used this smudged on top of all the other shade on the lower lash line (make sure to blend) Add a green eyeliner to lower lash line to help blend it all together..
L.A. Colors Pearl eyeliner for the winged out liner..
Its So Big Mascara for the lashes
L.A. Colors Auto Eyeliner in Black on tight-line & In between Lashes..
Perfect BB Cream all over the face , blend with your fingers
ELF Brightening Concealer : underneath the eyes to brighten it up.. Blend with a foundation brush or finger
Elf Cream Bronzer: St Lucia used my finger to apply then blended with a contouring brush
Profusion Eye Brightening palette 06: mixed all together for a blush
Rimmel stay matte powder to top it all off and prevent oiliness..
Bareminerals Lipstick : Moxie which is absolutely gorgeous and very creamy
Rush Lipgloss: Slice of Heaven to top it off with some beautiful shine!
Thats it simple as that and you have a spring beautiful look.
I did curl my hair with the Cortex Curling wand , I used the reverse barrel and used different size sections curling away from my face.
If you recreate this I would love to see , you can tag me on instagram, or Facebook!

It costs $10.00 a month, and they have a quiz you can take so that you get products that work for you. Everytime I receive an IPSY glam bag I am pleased with the content I received. If you want to sign up yourself then just click here.

So today I am doing another fashion related post. A few weeks ago I did a post on how to determine your body shape If you haven’t read that then check it out here Find your Body Shape.
Today I am going to continue on and talk about the Inverted Triangle Shape and how to dress your best if this is your body shape. I will be doing the rest of the shapes so stay tuned for that! So here we go ..
So we are going to talk about what an it means to have and Inverted Triangle shaped body and what types of clothing look flattering on you. So why is it important to know what your body shape is? Knowing your body shape helps you to pick cloths that will look the absolute best on your body type.
Inverted Tirangle basically means that you have broad shoulders and a slimmer waist & hip area. So your a bigger upper body. Now because this is the case you really want the focus to go to your lower body to balance out the broad shoulders. The goal is to balance your shape out with the clothing that you wear.
So , a good way to balance out your body is to wear bright bottoms. Skinny jeans are a no no endless you have bright colored skinny jeans , then they are ok. So stick with brighter bottoms or even textured pants.
This is a really good example of textured bottoms. Another great thing about this outfit is that the skirt has a little bit of a flared out piece which is perfect because it gives the illusion that you are proportional.
You really want to try to make an extra effort to accentuate your waist , so a belt is perfect. Shirts that Flare out near the hip area are also perfect for your body shape. You can see here that I also have boot cut or wide leg jeans on which also make me look very proportional.
So thats pretty simple I hope ! Comment down below if you have any questions! If you like my videos then make sure to subscribe ! If you don’t know what your body shape is then check the video out below!
Now here is my makeup look for today! My top is from forever 21 and my blazer is also from forever 21! Thank you guys for watching make sure to insert your email if you want to stay updated with my blog posts!
So what Body Shape are you? I am actually the 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?
Bondbeauty Look of the Day. Here is a close up look at how some of these makeup products look..
I am really excited for this next month, my son is turning one and it should be a fun and happy month.

Happy Valentines Day, Because tomorrow is the Day of Love I wanted to show you two choices for valentines day. One is more casual and the other is fancier for a nice dinner. If you want to see me show you how to do this then click on the video below.
1. You can curl your hair or have it straight. (I curled it the night before & this is what it looked like today! I wanted it to look messy & real slummy).
2.Braid your bangs into a rope braid & pin it underneath some hair to hide the bobbypin.
3. Make A Half pony tail & with your thumb create a hole. Then flip the pony tail in the hole 2 times to create a twist.
4.divide the pony tail into two parts & braid each part.
5. Flip them over & above the twist & pin them in a heart shape!
Thats a super easy casual hairstyle perfect for the day of LOVE.
1. Seperate your bangs & face framing bits of hair . Then pin it out of the way.
2. Take out 1 inch strand of hair behind your ear & braid it.
3. Pull your hair to one side & twist it in the back .
4. tie your ponytail & braid a strand of hair, wrapping it around the base of the pony tail.
5. put the braid behind your hair in between a bobbypin & sew it through the twist you made.
6. Last use a 1 1/2 inch curling iron & curl your bangs, & ponytail.
* Dont forget to use hairspray to insure that your hairstyle lasts all day!

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!
