Beyond excited about my new pigments and eyeshadow from Sugarpill and BEN NYE! My true Make-Up Junkies know why I'm excited lol!
Product review coming soon via my Beauty Blog.
As a makeup artist I have tons of blushes for my clients but as for me I only like two on my complexion. Its kinda weird because I will wear any color lipstick, and any color eyeshadow but won't really delve into different blushes.
I said all of that to say... honey I got a new blush that definitely got me blushing I am freaking in love with it!!!
It's Pierre Hardy x NARS High Voltage Blush - Rotonde
It's more of a Spring/Summer blush but I can definitely see myself wearing it all year around. It's a gorgeous Peachy/Orangey color. More Orange then peach tho! A little goes a super long way… just the slightest touch of a blush brush is all you need. If you are a makeup junkie like me than you know NARS has some of the best blushes. Nars blushes last forever... No joke!
The pics below is me wearing the NARS Pierre Hardy Blush in Rotonde
I was talking to one of my really good friends that I've had since 4th grade and I advised her as to what facial scrub she needs to go get it! Which is the Microdelivery by PHILOSOPHY. BUT it's actually pretty expensive Eeeeek! :(
So then I thought about it and remembered there is an amazing scrub that is literally right in your kitchen and can be done for free! Yasssss hunti I said FREE!
To create the scrub, just mix together half a cup of coarse brown sugar with a tablespoon of honey, a little olive oil, and 1/4 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, then apply all over your body/ FACE and rinse. The scrub not only smells delicious, but leaves your skin feeling ultra-smooth.
However if your skin is super sensitive I recommend you just mix of the brown sugar or Raw sugar with a teaspoon of your current cleanser.
Cruisin down Pinterest and all these gorgeous editorial magazines and I am seeing that the black lipstick trend is really in full force. However in the streets near me... Malls, and wherever else I have not yet to see someone actually take on the trend. So of course you know me I love dare to wear!
I simply lined my entire lip with black eyeliner from Calvin Klein cosmetics. I pat a little bit of black eyeshadow on top of the lip to give a deeper black look and to seal the deal I added a little bit of gloss on top! Adding gloss is optional, if you don't add gloss ill just give you a nice Matt look.
As a beauty blogger I love to share what other bloggers are advising... So here you go! Yaaassss honey these are tips you will definitely love. Plus its supper easy! Thank me later!

Honey Chile let me tell you one of the things that make me smile nowadays is Coconut Oil... well Extra Virgin coconut oil that is (ECVO). Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oil in the world.
Coconut Oil very good at hydrating skin. It sinks in deep, conditions, moisturizes, and softens skin. It isn’t pumped full of water or petroleum byproducts like many commercial cleansers or lotions either. Skin is kept clean by an oily substance called sebum. When sebum mixes with too much dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells it can clog pores and lead to acne and other blemishes and honey who wants that?!!
I love the fact that Coconut oil naturally clears away dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. It even has some antibacterial properties, killing off harmful bacteria. Coconut oil is the all-in-one natural solution to all your skin problems! I know what ya thinking... Why didn't unknown this earlier in life. Don't worry, better late than never. But wait there is more...
EVCO soothes bug bites, speeds healing, helps with rashes, gets rid of flaking skin, softens and shrinks wrinkles, protects against sun damage, keeps tans longer, acts as an antioxidant to prevent cellular aging, and so much more. It removes makeup easily and even makes the perfect massage oil.
Please make sure your EVCO is organic/pure! USDA approved!
My EVCO is by Better Body foods... Stay tuned because my next post will be why EVCO is great for your hair!
