Swirl & Sparkle

I’m a Etsy gal shopper. I love supporting small business. When I saw Swirl & Sparkle on Instagram, I was curious on it. What is Swirl and Sparkle? Well if you didn’t see my Instagram photo/video. They are cute little makeup brush cleaners made from scratch by Marli Lang. It’s made out of goats milk or vegan shea butter. How awesome is that? Our scrubbing diamonds sprinkled within our brush cleanser are both aesthetically gorgeous but also serve an additional purpose by boosting your cleaning process and acting as a gentle exfoliator/scrubbing mechanism for your brushes. 6 sprinkled (4 carat) diamonds will help you on your journey towards the cleanest brushes you’ve ever had! And I won’t lie, you might crave a cupcake (or two) as a reward for a job well done afterwards!” – Swirl & Sparkle 

Missy Lynn Palette

                                Have you heard about the Missy Lynn eyeshadow palette? If you haven’t well then you’re missing out. Missy Lynn is a beauty blogger on Youtube and she’s also active duty in the Air Force. How awesome is that? When I saw this eyeshadow palette I knew I would be in love with it because I mean look at the colors!!! What’s also great is that she has a quote in her palette “Start with confidence. Finish with success”                                   They are colors that would go perfectly with any skin complexion. If you know me.. I love anything gold. The colors are very pigmented which is good because I dislike eyeshadow colors that are not pigmented.                                 The good thing about the gold tones is that you can use them as a highlighter for your face. I got this palette from BH Cosmetics for $8 since it was on sale but from what I…

Makeup Revolution | Colour Chaos

                                  I’ve always used neutral colors and I figured I would jump out of my shell and start having fun with other colors. Makeup Revolution has this fun summer “Colour Chaos” palette and I’m dying to use already. So first thing I noticed when I received my package is that Makeup Revolution definitely makes sure that your items are safely secured. All of my palettes were wrapped up in bubble wrap on top of bubble wrap. Although it came internationally none of my items were ruined at all. Palette includes 12 shimmery colors and 6 matte colors. When I opened the eyeshadow palettes I noticed that they were in their boxes (see above). Loved that. The palette is a nice slick case. The only downfall is that my palette came with their double ended spongy applicator and that’s not okay. Does anyone even use that anymore? I sure don’t.   I seriously can’t wait to get my hands on these colors. Would you wear these colors? CHECK OUT THIS MONTH’S SPONSOR:

Kardashian Sun Kissed Tanner

Let’s talk Kardashians. No I don’t mean their drama or what’s going on in their lives but the Kardashian Sun Kissed self tanner. I bought this at Ulta which I figured I could go ahead and try since I’ve been using Tanwise from Sally’s Beauty Supplies. It was $19.99 so I figured why not.

HASK Beauty

Disclosure a product was received to review. All opinions are my own.  I had the pleasure to be contacted by HASK Beauty products. They found me via Instagram. They asked me if they could send me their Almond Oil Thickening products. I of course said yes because I mean c’mon who wouldn’t want to try out new beauty products. I have extremely thin hair ever since I gave birth to Landon. I lost a lot of hair and it sucked. THANK YOU HORMONES! I have tried every single hair product from L’Oreal, Tresemmé, Head & Shoulders, Garnier Frutis and Pantene, you name it. I can never get my hair to go back to the thickness that I once had. HASK Almond Oil Shampoo/Conditioner has this mint scent and cool feel when it goes on your hair/scalp. It literally felt refreshing and clean. I’m not going to lie my best friends and I tried it and we all said the same thing “my hair feels minty clean” lol When I sprayed the Root Thickening Spray and blow dried my hair, my hair legit felt so much different than all the other products I’ve used. I’m not kidding you guys this hair…

Contouring Basics

  Contouring has always been hardest struggle. I just didn’t know how to do it or what products to use. At first I started off with just using bronzer to contour and then I saw videos on Youtube actually  watching Nicole Guerriero videos.   After I saw how she was contouring I started to practice. Finally a few months ago I mastered it. I was so proud of myself.   Keep in mind I like to apply foundation, do my eyebrows and eyeshadow first before I start to contour. (Always remember to put on primer before applying any makeup)   Concealer (Fair) | Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal $8.99 – Like I noted before I like to start off with foundation after applying my primer. Once you have the foundation on you want to apply concealer underneath your eyes, t-bone of your face, and a little above your jawline.   Foundation Darker Shade | Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free $8.99 – You’ll apply this on your forehead, underneath cheek bones, and your jawline.   Beauty Blender Sponge | Ulta Beauty Blender $4.99 – Use this to blend out your foundation and concealer. Best product ever invented.   Highlight | High Beam Highlight…
