I have another fun collaboration and it’s with my girlfriend Andrea from Glam Hungry Mom. We have been friends for a long time now it seems. Just like me, she also has two little boys and loves all things beauty. So we hit it off great. We wanted to create a makeup look using a palette we haven’t used but that included a pop of color. We both decided to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made palette.
I’m so excited to be talking to you about a makeup brand that I’ve been testing out for a few weeks now. It’s called Nomad Cosmetics, they are a fairly new makeup brand. It was influenced by three core ideals: exploration for beauty, passion for experiences and desire for authenticity. Each of their shades is named after local landmarks and characteristics of their destinations.
Today I’m collaborating with Kendra from Citizens of Beauty.We wanted to do 3 different eye looks using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. If you’re not sure who she is, well she’s a mom, makeup artist and beauty blogger. I’ve gotten to know Kendra through comment pods and I’m a huge fan of her work. I have, to be honest with you, I got this palette from my dad 2 Christmas ago and I haven’t used this palette as much as I would have loved to, so I’m really happy that we both agreed to use this palette. I’m a huge fan of smokey eye looks.
Back at it again with a skincare review, this time it’s all about rainbow masking. I have been trying these masks from Bonvivant Botanical Memebox for a while now and honestly before I received these I didn’t know what rainbow masking was. If you’re unfamiliar with rainbow masking it’s basically where you can apply 3 different types of masks on your face for different skincare reasons.
You guys one of my goals this year was to collaborate with many bloggers. Today I’m collaborating with Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick and Stilettos. I’ve been friends with Lindsay for a year now and I completely love her blog style and the fact that she’s beauty addict like myself. We wanted to create a makeup look today for you that was all DRUGSTORE! Yes you read that right. It’s an “all drugstore makeup look”.
During the month of festivities I will admit that I was eating a lot of food especially sweets and there were a few times where we had to eat fast food because we were so busy, so my skin decided to break out badly. Like I’m not use to having my skin breakout this bad. We usually don’t eat out because I prefer to cook and my skin definitely didn’t agree with it.
As a mom some times I have those nights where we I can’t sleep either because I have insomnia or one of my kids decides to have a sleepless night. Which of course means dark circles for mama bear. I’m not a fan of dark circles, I mean who is. You can try to cover them up with makeup but sometimes that doesn’t always work. Well today I’m going to share with you all about a great beauty product that I’ve been loving lately right before bed.
You guys we are ringing in 2017 in 4 days! CRAZY. If you didn’t catch it yesterday on the blog but I did a 2016: A Year in Review. With that being said this week for the Beauty Mix is all about the New Year’s Eve look. I’m definitely a fan of New Year’s Eve makeup look because you can do WHATEVER look you want because it’s a HUGE celebration. So today I did a smokey eye using black and burgundy because I wanted to use my Urban Decay Heavy Metal (Glamrock).
