Today I’m doing a very summery look using my new favorite eyeshadow. The star of the show is the Ittse Eyeshadow Golden Gate. I am so obsessed with this color its not even funny. I have used this in 3 different makeup looks for my 100 days of makeup on my social media. So I decided to show you how I did this particular look which was day 16. Its super easy to do and if I can do it so can you!

Here is what my Day 16 picture looked like on Instagram. If you don’t follow me at all my social media then go follow me. I am doing 100 days of makeup; which means everyday a new makeup look different from the day before.
I love this look because It adds drama to the inner corner instead of the outer corner which is so unique. Make sure that you wear winged out eyelashes to help balance the look!
So I am guessing you actually want to see how to do this makeup? (Click below)
I hope this got you in the summer mood. Don’t be afraid to play around with makeup and do something different. You are beautiful and you can show who you are through your makeup.
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

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
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?
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.

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/

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
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.
I hope you guys are having a great FRIDAY! So today I wanted to do something fun and if your a beauty lover like I am this should be fun.. So If you dont know what elf is then Ill tell you.
