It has been so long since I have posted and so much has happened that I want to share. I guess that for a later post though. Today lets get down to business with a VIBRATING Flat Iron. I know what your thinking, the products they come out with now a days are crazy! Well this one sounds funky ,but it is absolutely genius! It actually works guys, so Im bringing it to my blog and I am also doing a giveaway.
I have tried this first hand and I love it to straighten or curl my hair. (I will be showing you a tutorial at the end of how to do both)
This is the Asavea Vibe Vibrating Flat Iron Buy it Here.
*Not an affiliate Link
Heats up in 60 sec
Vibration options which decreases the FRIZZ (I love this for when I straighten my hair)
Does not pull on my hair! AT ALL
Ceramic Flat Iron- Gives you consistent temperature
Swivel Cord So when Curling It doesn’t get tangled in your hair
Automatic shut off after 60 min
Fiberglass technology helps retain moisture to your hair
Affordable (is on sale right now for $49.99)
You can turn the vibration mode on or off
When vibration mode is on, it only vibrates when clamped shut!
NONE seriously It works so well I cant think of
As I have been trying this for the past couple weeks I actually prefer the Vibrating mode to be on when Im straightening my hair. The reason why is because it completely eliminates frizz and smooths my hair to the point that It even looks like I put anti frizz product in it when I didn’t. Whenever I curl my hair I don’t use the vibrating mode.
So I will be showing you how I straighten and Curl my hair in the video below. I honestly do think that this flat iron is amazing and worth a try. I recommend it 100%!
I have another surprise for you first, I’m doing a giveaway! Asavea was so kind to host a giveaway , absolutely free, all you need to do to enter is click here .
Its open until Feb 11, 2018 I will be announcing the winner in the description box of my video below. I will also be emailing you personally so make sure to check your spam folders!!
So I hope you guys enjoy the tutorial and Good luck!
Its a bran new day and we are doing #foundationweek. Basically it is where I do A new foundation review/first impressions post every day or 7 days. I started this on my Youtube channel and really wanted to do some blog posts to go along. Plus I know you would really enjoy some good written details.
Today I wanted to share this FULL FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION. The Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation*. This is seriously the Worlds most full coverage foundation, I’m not exaggerating. My Perfect shade match is Dermacol 221, If you want to see what shades of foundations match me well then look in the description box of the Video below.
*I do receive compensation for clicking my link, if you do not want to click on my link then feel free to google Dermacol Foundation.
So why is this foundation the Worlds Most? It covers everything! To show you I went through and completely marked up my face with a red marker. Why Red? well its more realistic because often times acne & imperfections are red. I know its genius! This foundation smoothed over everything so easy, I still can’t believe it. The best part is that you only need a pea size amount for you entire face. Less is more with this one.
Lets talk Pros & Cons:
Use thin Layers & covers Everything
smooths over imperfections and leaves a dewy/natural finish on the skin (Healthy Glow)
Applies Good with Brush Or Sponge (I personally love using a Brush)
Perfect for Pictures or an event
If you want to wear it for everyday you can mix it in with your moisturizer
DOES NOT OXIDIZE
Feels A little Thick on the Skin
I think this is a good foundation for everyone to have. If you have dry skin or Oily skin I think you can wear this. If you have Oily skin make sure to powder with a mattifying powder or use a mattifying primer. Now this is why I think everyone should have this, even if you do not use this all the time. This is a great foundation to use to spot conceal spots around your face. So if you need more coverage on your forehead apply your regular foundation all over and only apply this on the area on your forehead you need more coverage. I give you guys my stamp of approval and the best part is how affordable it is. See it Here.
If you want to see how this foundation wears through out the day, I did do a full First impressions video where I take you with me along my day so you can see for yourself how it Wears.
So I hope you enjoyed my review I will be back tomorrow to share another blog post. If you want to see how well it covers see the video below!
Today I’m posting about a product that really peeked my interest through Facebook & instagram! Lets cut to the chase , we are talking about Lipsense I know you all have heard about this. You have probably been invited to a lipsense party at one point. Its suppose to be this magical lip color that lasts on your lips all day long. It is suppose to be immovable so immovable that if you rub your fingers against your lips nothing will come off!
Well today we are going to talk about if its true, how long it lasts & at the end I will even show you in a video!
I have the starter kit (as shown above) it comes with a lip color (Bella shown), Moisturizing Gloss, & Oops remover. I received mine from Rachel Powers who did a fabulous job at packaging everything nicely and shipping it out to me quickly. I received it about 3 days after I ordered it!
doesn’t dry out your lips, instead it restore moisture to your lips
Thinner than water & immediately evaporates on the skin
47 different shades & multiple finishes
So with this in mind I tested this out several times and did a full wear test with check ups in the video below.
My conclusion is: This is truly amazing! I love it so much. It really does do everything it claims, which is rare to actually find a product that does that. This is my go to date night lip color because it does not rub off or kiss off! It lasts through eating and never leaves a lip print on a glass. I especially love the Moisturizing Gloss it does a really good job of sticking to the lips but not making your lips feel sticky. Also even when the gloss does come off I noticed my lips still felt moisturized and healthy.
If you have been curious or wanting to try Lipsense I definitely think you should! I love it so much I’m going to go back and get a couple of different colors. The only Con I found is that you have to go through a distributer. I went through Rachel Powers who is such a sweet amazing lady. She packaged everything beautifully even included a tips & tricks page! Just contact her and order some! Its so easy and YES she ships it right to your home! click to go straight to her Facebook.
Anyways thats enough chatter see my video review & wear test below!
Have you tried lipsense? If so whats your favorite color? if not what color would you get if you did ?
I know its been such a long time, but I promise I’m back and all my technical problems are behind me. So I know what the question is that you probably have.. What have I been doing? Well I’m glad you ask I have been binge watching Pretty Little Liars. I am not kidding in no way shape or form. I have grown rather obsessed with the show. If you haven’t watched it let me fill you in on the plot. Basically in a small town full of secrets where a group of 5 girls keep lots of secrets. One day one of the girls goes missing and a year later is found dead. The whole question is who killed her? and why do the other 4 girls keep getting texts from a person named A. Honestly it has kept my husband and I on our toes.
So what does that have to do with today? Well in Season 3 ,Hanna Marin, A character from the show cuts her hair and has some beautiful hairstyles for short hair. Some of which I want to recreate and show you how to do.
Not only do I want to show you these hairstyles, but I also partnered up with Asavea * To bring to you todays video & blog post. They recently launched a new Hairstyling tool and you guys seemed to really love it when I shared their hairstyling straightener brush. So I thought I would also share this beautiful Gold Titanium Hair Curling Wand.
(* This video & post is sponsored, so I do receive compensation for sharing this product with you. But all my opinions are honest and I truly do love this Hair Curler and recommend it.)
So think of this as a review & hair tutorial in one! Also stay tuned to the very end because, just like with the Straightening brush post, I will be GIVING ONE of these AWAY.
In the video below I will be showing you how to do this textured, curly, messy Lob hairstyle. This is a iconic Hanna Marin Hairstyle. She rocks this textured lob more than any other hairstyle.
This was so easy to do and surprisingly quick. I used the Spiral Barrel to achieve it and I love how it turned out. What I love most about this hairstyle is that you can really dress it up or down just by adding more texture and breaking it up more with your fingers.
So here are some of the Asavea Hair curler Pros:
The Gold & Ceramic material help to keep your frizz under complete control
It heats up quickly and cools down quickly
Your hairstyle lasts longer than other curlers (or at least it did for me, It lasted me 3 days and I didn’t have to recurl my hair at All!)
Its beautiful! I know you love the GOLD!
It has a Swivel Cord so Its easy to use without the cord getting caught or in the way.
The controls are easy to use and you can decided how hot you want the curler to be.
The Second hairstyle I did is a messy, easy undo. I like to do this on day three when my curls are still intact but maybe not as voluminous and I feel like putting my hair up. All you need for this hairstyle is a teasing comb & some bobby pins.
I love this because you can again make it as messy or as formal as you want. Its perfect for short hair because the braided back keeps all those little short layered hairs into place without bobby pins.
Ok ok, pictures are nice but lets see how to actually accomplish this. I promise it looks like I spent a lot of time doing this hairstyle but I really didn’t!
Happy Friday, today is a special friday because its my wonderful husbands birthday! I wouldn’t be where I am at today, and I wouldn’t have this blog if it wasn’t for him. So Thank you!
Im so excited to share another InstaTutorial with you guys. So what this is for those of you that are new; On Instagram I sometimes like to do fantasy/editorial/themed Makeup looks that will just look beautiful in pictures. Sometimes when I do these I like to turn on the camera and film it in a tutorial form. But, whats different than other tutorials is that at the very end I share some of my edited picture and you can vote in the comments on which pic you like. And which pic you think I should put on my Instagram Feed! This is a fun way to kind of join both the youtube & instagram platform. Don’t worry I’m going to be showing you those pics and you can vote too, right here!
For this look I was super inspired my my camo that I love to wear. Yes its a SolarCity Hat :). No I’m not sponsored I just have a bunch of SolarCity Gear and out of all the hats my husband owns this one is my favorite. So I thought why not turn it into a amazing eye look that I have never seen done before. Hence this makeup look was born.
So before I share my tutorial below I thought I would share the Pictures so you can vote, and give you all the makeup details. This look actually turned out to be quite easy.
I have missed you guys! I know I have been gone a while so sorry, life has twisted and turned on me. But here we are I am back and happy to be here. I wanted to do a fun post for you guys since I haven’t done on in so long. I know all of you watched the Super Bowl or at least the half time show. Lady Gaga performed and she came out with a strong makeup look. I wanted to recreate this mainly because it was requested on my Instagram, but also because it is unique and fun.
So I went ahead and recreated it for you but I added my little twist to it. Instead of Red Gems I did pink, also I didn’t add the netting like she had. Her whole eye , gem & Black outline was actually a sticker. Because I did mine by hand I left out the netting through out the gems. Either way hers looked gorgeous and I think I did it justice. So I have a full video tutorial for you below, also I shared my edited Instagram Ready Pictures and I would love for you to vote in the comments and tell me which of all these pictures in this post you love best!
Dermacol Foundation 221
Clinique Blush Fig
Tiny Beauty Eyeshadow Tint: Violette

Before you go COMMENT below and tell me which pictures do you like best from this post?
Thank you guys, and Im so excited to be back! I have lots of tutorials,reviews, hauls & more coming soon!
Im so excited to be doing the Ultimate Wet N Wild New Releases Post! I have done a first impressions & a full review on all the new products I got at the beginning of January. Wet N Wild is really stepping up their game this year. None of the products I have tried so far from them are duds! So I’m going to keep it short and simple and let the videos do the talking enjoy!
First I have a full first impressions where I take you throughout the day and see how all these products wear.
Cushion Contour $5.99
Cushion Highlight $5.99
Megaglo Highlight $4.99
Contour Stick $3.99
Blush Stick $3.99
Photo Focus Foundation $5.99
After Using these products for almost a month and really trying them in all different ways I have a full review on the Foundation..
Overall the Foundation is my personal favorite! I think it looks beautiful on camera, in pictures & in person. As it warms up to the skin it becomes almost skin like. It looks so natural and beautiful. Also it is a High Medium Coverage when applied with a brush & it is perfect for my needs.
This is one of my Recent Editorial Style Instagram Pics where I’m wearing the Foundation. Also it matches perfectly with my undertone.
WetNWild Photo Focus Foundation Golden Beige (Matches Fit Me Matte & poreless 220)
As far as the other products I tried the cushion products are amazing. I love how they dry down completely so I don’t need to set it. It also lasted longer than any of the other contour / highlight products I have tried from wet n wild.
I also love the undertone of their contour shades, the cushion & stick. They are a perfect natural shade that isn’t too warm or too cool. I feel like these are the most universal shades. Plus the cushions last me 12 hrs (when applied with a brush)
WetnWild is one of the most affordable brands at the drugstore; and for them to come out this year with some amazing products is fantastic. I feel like they came out swinging!
PhotoFocus Foundation Golden Beige
Blush Stick Floral Majority
Contour Stick Where’s Walnut
MegaGlo Highlight Precious Petals
Have you tried any of these products? I hope this was helpful!
Its the Holiday season, you see christmas trees in every corner & Jingle bells on every station. So what better time to share an easy glamorous holiday makeup tutorial with you than now. I love this because It incorporates a dark red lip that looks stunning paired up with a cranberry eye. Of course this makeup looks beautiful no matter what lipstick you pick. Also because I love you guys I made a video tutorial for you to follow if you want to recreate this yourself!
After Applying The Bronzer in the contour area of the cheek, I added the blush & Highlight. Then to finish this look you just put on a beautiful dark lipstick. Personally I am obsessed with Matte Liquid Lipsticks they are so beautiful! I feel like they are easier to work with & last longer on the lips.
Personally I love pairing up beautiful looks like this with a feathery Eyebrow. It is all the trend right now! To see how I do a feather Eyebrow click here. The feathered eyebrow is so easy to achieve and I only use two products, which You can find at the drugstore!
I hope you guys enjoyed this makeup look idea! Let me know if you recreate it, tag me on social media I would love to see how it turns out! Now here is the video tutorial just for you!
So tell me What do you want for christmas? Comment below I love hearing from you!
Today I am bringing to you a review on the Pura d’or shampoo & conditioner + argan oil. This is an organic product, which means no harsh chemicals, no parabens & no sulfates. I will be talking about pros & cons, price, where to find, does it work, and is it worth the buy.
Good for all skin types (If oily use as night treatment 1 drop) (if dry add into foundation, or 2drops before bed , or 1 drop before foundation application)
Very versatile (ends of hair, face, skin)
Doesn’t change the wear time of my foundation
hydrates & conditions
reduces frizz & split ends
Makes hair look shinier
Makes skin look & feel soft and healthy
I absolutely have fallen in love with this Argan Oil I use it in so many different ways. I have added it to my day & night routine. To see how & learn more about why I love this and how to use it check out the video below.
Is it worth the buy? Yes I think so , I really did notice a difference right away. I felt like it was actually doing something for my hair. It was nourishing & making it healthier. Organic shampoo & conditioners are not easy to find and this one is a great option that you can find almost anywhere.
Let me know what you like from Pura d’or? Whats your favorite hair or skin care product? Comment down bellow lets get a conversation going!!
I am so excited to share with you some of my favorite hair, skin & makeup products for this past month. I love doing these kinds of posts because then you have a chance to see products that have truly not only worked for me but that I am personally in love with. (video below to see all products)
Pura d’or Argan Oil I have dry to normal skin. Sometimes my foundation looks cakey on certain parts of my face. It looks like makeup sits on top of my skin rather than blending into my skin. This makes my makeup look un natural . To fix this I add this oil to my foundation (two drops) or just to my face before foundation. It really gives me a natural looking flawless face. The makeup sits so nicely onto of it and helps it really blend into my skin.
Dauphines of New York Headband : This headband is perfect for this summer time. Its so hot in Arizona and its nice to keep your hair out of your face. So this headband is useful and cute all at the same time! I used for the 4th of July and loved it!
(Find it at Anthropologie)
Yuer er Gong Zhu Eyelashes : Love these lashes they are glam but look natural all in one. I love these for dates or even everyday. ( I have a giveaway going on so make sure to check out that video too down below. Im giving away these lashes!)
Ittse Eyeshadow Golden Gate : I am so obsessed with this eyeshadow , this is the eyeshadow I used in multiple of my 100 days of makeup pictures. (over on my Instagram)
Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation 220 This foundation is such a great matte foundation. Even with my dry skin it still looks great! I also love to mix the Argan Oils in with this particular foundation. It turns this matte foundation into a natural finish foundation, that just looks fresh and perfect.
Wet N Wild Brushes: Great affordable brushes , super soft and do not shed.
Wet n Wild To reflect Shimmer Palette Boozy Brunch: My favorite Highlight of the moment. Such an unexpected find!
Wet n Wild Mega goo contouring Palette Dulce de Leche: I have been using and abusing this contour palette. I love the contouring shade in here it is a neutral which makes it more wearable and it looks beautiful.
Amazon Brush Egg : This is such an amazing find. It helps clean your brushes just as good as the brush cleaning mats except it is 1/10th of the price. Only 2 bucks , such a steal!
Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush Apri-cot in the Middle: This is a perfect natural blush that goes with any makeup look. So it is perfect for everyday or for special occasions. The reason I like this so much is because it doesn’t take away from your look. Its a no brainer blush.
Bella Pierre Cosmetic Mineral Blush Desert Rose This blush is a beautiful light pink. Another blush that goes with any look but especially blue looks! I love it with a blue smokey eye . (shown in the picture below)
Be a Bombshell Smooth Criminal Powder: Since I have dry skin I have to be so careful when choosing a powder. I can easily turn into a cakey mess. So I have been loving this powder to set my under eye concealer! It smooths the area out with out drying it out.
Wet n Wild Highlighting Pen Posing Nude & A Happy Medium: These pens are so great for highlighting. They are also great for adding to other concealers. Specially hard to work with concealers tend to work better with this concealer.
LA girl Pro Concealer Natural: This concealer is such a great alternative to the MAC Pro long wear concealer. It is not as thick and full coverage but it is definitely so good! I use it for under the eye and it is perfect. I also highlight with it around the face.
Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat: Are you looking for a super shiny top coat that makes it look like you came from the salon? Well I finally found a incredible top coat at the drugstore! This one is so great , it makes my nail polish last longer & looks shinier than any other top coat! Love, Love , Love!
ELF Acne Fighting Gel: This gel really surprised me. It didn’t magically make my acne go away but it helps my blemishes get smaller and start to go away. Its amazing and I am so surprised. I will wash my face before bed and apply it after. Then in the morning my blemishes will be ten times smaller and look a lot better than the day before. This is my secret weapon to beautiful looking skin.
NYC Lip liner Bare: Perfect lip liner to pair up with your nude lips!
Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lipcolor Looking for Truffle: Such a velvety soft matte lip color! So amazing and this shade is a cooler nude and I love it. So in style right now!
NYX Butter Gloss Eclair: These butter glosses are just that buttery! This color looks so great topped over light pink type of nude lipsticks. (shown below)
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm: This has been a long time favorite. To me this is the perfect matte nude lip color. Its so affordable as well. If you struggle to find the perfect nude shade try this one out!
LA Colors High Shine Butter Gloss Snuggle: This is a beautiful nude, almost gold shimmery gloss. The formula is very slick and soft without being sticky. The color is perfect to add to the lower lip of your nude lips! (great lipstick topper) I especially have been loving it over a matte cool or grey nude lip. I add it right to the center of my bottom lip and blend! (shown below)
