Today I am doing the Dollar Tree Makeup Challenge! Basically you can only use makeup from the Dollar Tree to create a look! I decided to do something out of the ordinary and fun. For some reason my favorite fruit of the moment is watermelon so I decided to do a watermelon inspired look! I have been doing more editorial type of makeup pictures lately on my Instagram and so I thought why not on youtube?
Here is the whole challenge video for you to see for yourself how it turned out! It was definitely very difficult, but as you can see from the Instagram pictures it worked out great!
If your not subscribed to my youtube SUBSCRIBE! It is completely free and easy! I love posting up makeup videos and I regularly post 3 up a week! Here are how the pictures turned out on Instagram!
What do you think? Should I do more tutorials where I show you how to do my Instagram editorial style looks? Let me know in the comments!

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.

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!
