Hello My Bondbeautys, Happy Monday , I hope you all had a wonderful fourth of July Weekend! We made hamburgers and Hotdogs and went swimming it was loads of fun! Today I wanted to share with you a different kind of blog post. This is something I haven’t really done here at bondbeautyful.com but I thought it would be fun. Its kind of like a haul but these are products that I was sent from companies. Now before we start I do want to clarify that my reviews, thoughts etc. of these things are completely honest and I am under no obligation to do videos or blog posts or anything like that with these products. Im so thankful for all my blog subscribers and I would never do anything to ruin the trust we have here!
So here are the different websites if you are interested in any of the products I talked about.
I am super excited about todays post! I have been thinking lately about how I want my blog and videos to be something that anyone can enjoy no matter age. Most of the makeup looks I come up with I think would look good on younger or older women. Sometimes it doesn’t seem that way so to help you see how this makeup look looks on younger or more mature women I invited my mom to join us! Todays makeup tutorial is how to do a basic smokey eye that is perfect for all ages!
This smokey eye is very appropriate for this summer time , in fact it is perfect for anytime of year because it is not too dark. This is also such an easy look to create because I am only using 3 eyeshadows! Obviously when doing makeup on younger skin and older skin there are little tweeks you have to make. For example I am wearing a nude lipstick on my mom I used a light natural pink lipstick. I also used this particular blush because its glowy without being shimmery which is looks great no matter your age!
Personally I love this makeup look for date night, special occasions,weddings, pictures things like that . So lets get started with the eyes! ( I recommend starting with the eyes because we will be using black and that can sometimes get everywhere).
For the face makeup I purposely used a blush that has no shimmer but has a beautiful glow because it is more versatile for all ages! This coral blush really warmed up the face for the summer. Now remember everyones skin tone is different so you might need to pick a lipstick that fits your undertone and skin shade better. For my mom I picked a Pink lipstick from Elf -Mink Pink and I think it looked better than the nude lipstick that I am wearing.

Today I wanted to show you guys this beautiful summer appropriate Smokey eye. Its really easy and it has a fun pop of blue eyeliner to finish it off. Some of you may want something a little more toned down than this bright eyeliner with the mauve lip so I give you a nude lip option that really makes it more wearable.
Personally I love Smokey eyes and I will even rock Smokey eyes in the summer! Date night is a Smokey eye night, its romantic, mysterious and perfect for a night out. So this weekend when you are heading out why not try out this look! So enough blab and let me show you how I did it!
I personally Love this look for t Summer I think it looks amazing and Is a fun look to do! If the Mauve is too much color then try the nude lip option. I personally love these Wet N Wild Megalast Lipsticks because they are Matte and they feel very comfortable on the lips!
I wanted to make this eye look as simple as possible , If you want more detail and see the eyeshadows I used check out the video above. Here are the four easy steps I used and you can use which ever eyeshadows you love!

Todays post is a how to of sorts. This last month I have been really experimenting with the Coastal Scents revealed 2 eyeshadow palette. I came up with a look that I consider to be Romantic & my favorite with this palette so far. So today Im going to show you how to do this Romantic Eye!
This look is actually very simple as in there really is no special technique.
Prep- Prime the lids with a primer , then add a base (elf smudge pot, to help the colors really pop & last all day)
Put the Light Pink underneath the brow (to highlight that part of the eye) with a eyeshadow brush.
But this gold in the inner 1/2 of the lid & the inner 1/3 of the lower lid
Add this pink to the outer half of the lid & blend it with the gold we added first.
Put the Fiji Matte Bronzer shade (a matte medium brown) into the crease with a blending brush using wind wiper motions. Then add this light purple shade in the crease with a crease brush.
Mix the dark brown and black and darken up the crease just a little.
Then use this cranberry shade to darken up crease & make a side ways V on the outer part of the lid and lower lid (make sure to blend)
Then Make a winged line with the black from the palette. And add this light shimmery shade to the tear duct area (this will brighten your eyes up)
That’s it you can add liquid liner to make the winged line more intense or just add mascara and be done with it. I personally did add a nude color eyeliner in the water line & a black in the tight line.
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: 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
Hello my Bondbeautys, This month Mr. Bond and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary! I am so happy and lucky to have such a wonderful husband. In honor of this exciting time I filmed the “getting ready” portion before we went out for dinner and I am sharing it with you now! I am going to show you how I did my makeup for my Anniversary. He worked most the day so we just went to dinner at Cheesecake Factory which is one of my favorite places to eat! I had such a good time with him , specially since we were kid free for a while! So lets talk about face makeup..
You can go from bare skin to Date Ready quickly with this real romantic makeup look!
Maybelline Infallible Foundation (Sun Beige) http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/8d04/
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/8d03/
LA Colors Lipgloss & Lipstick Duo Sensual (Dollar Tree)
Now the eyes I wanted to do a romantic type of eye look so I went with the Revealed 2 Palette . I like this palette because the shades are very similar to the Naked 3 Palette except it is more affordable. I also think that these shadows have great pigmentation.

Happy Monday, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. Last week was just about the craziest ever. My Phone is broken and my Mac started to act crazy to the point that I had to erase everything even my Final Cut Pro. So I was unable to do any videos or blog posts. Don’t worry I sorted everything out and I am going to share with you some summer nailpolish picks.
So I chose ten nailpolishes so that YOU can find a nailpolish pick that would fit you! I have nudes, brights, neutrals, bolds and fun picks.

Happy Friday, Sorry I didn’t have a post up for you yesterday life got a little crazy at the Bond house. Today I wanted to do a post/video that would tell you a little more about me! I saw a friend on youtube make a video like this and I was able to learn things about her I didn’t know, and relate to her better. Not to mention it was a very entertaining video.
I hope you guys enjoyed this video I know it isn’t makeup related! So one of the reasons I started youtube and my blog was to get to know more beautiful people like yourself. So tell me a random fact about yourself or something we have in common?
I couldn’t end this post without sharing my look of the day with you!
So today I am starting a new series where I show you my monthly favorite makeup look , in a tutorial form, every month to go along with my monthly favorite products video. Im super excited because I get to show you how I create my look using my favorite products.
By the way I’m so excited because we finished knocking down our house wall and we have the beam up. It looks so awesome I am so excited that the hard stuff is over. Soon we are going to paint and add flooring !
Todays look is a super easy summer/spring appropriate every day makeup look. I love how the coral blush & gold tones in my eye makeup just go together so perfect. I feel like this makeup looks so fresh , clean and beautiful.
I did use the Divergent Collectors kit Erudite & Abnegation Palettes. You do not have to use these ones I showed you close ups of the eye shadows so you can find eye shadows that are similar! But for those of you who do have the collectors kit already I thought it would be neat to use it! The Hard Candy Natural Eyes palette has very Similar shades.
For the rest of my face I kept it pretty natural and fresh. I love using my real techniques sponge because it applies my foundation flawlessly. A trick I like to do is contour my cheek bones. This makes me look a lot thinner which I need ( Specially since I just had a baby). I have been loving the Bh Cosmetics Sculpting kit Contour Brush. Ill put links to where you can find everything I used today if you are interested.
Today I wanted to share my beauty favorites for this past month , because it is already MAY! Its so crazy how fast time flys and I have been obsessed with one particular makeup look all month long. I am also going to be starting a new series where I also do my Favorite Makeup Look for the Month. So I will be showing you a makeup look using these beauty favorites on Monday so stay tuned!
This past month I have been loving a very natural spring eye & a coral fresh lip + cheek combo. I feel like this all ties together beautifully. Bonus: I think this look is a beautiful spring wedding look as well! It photographs beautifully leaving a beautiful glow to the skin. So lets start talking products..
These two palettes have been my favorites this month. I know a lot of you bought these when they first came out. They are the Divergent palettes from the Divergent Kit. These are the shades I have been using to create my looks. These eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, feel so soft & are easy to work with. The top palette is Erudite Palette & the bottom is Abnegation palette.
Now for the rest of the face I feel like all these products go together so nicely. The blush & Lippy just work together because they are both that coral type of shades.
These brushes are from Bh Cosmetics and man did they surprise me I love them. They are all skunk or duo fiber brushes and they do well in not eating up all my product. I also recently took out my Real techniques Beauty Sponge and it just leaves your face looking flawless. It is a great way to blend out foundation.
This Grafix eyeliner by L.A. Colors has been they product that makes my wing liner come to life all month long. It is really black and all though it took me a little to get use to the applicator it is beautiful. ( I don’t recommend it for beginners though)
This hand lotion I got from the Dollar Tree and I can say I am really enjoying it. There were two in a pack and I find that they are super convenient to have on your vanity & purse. Specially because my hands can get ashy looking.
Last is this beautiful Copper nailpolish from E.L.F. Called Copper. It is gorgeous and subtle so if you don’t like “in your face” type of polishes this one is perfect. Bonus its only $2 on their website!
So like I said I will be doing my April Favorite Makeup look Tutorial on Monday so make sure to check back then!
