Pixi Beauty Collaboration with It’s Judy Time

Last week I wrote I review on one of the products I received from Pixi Beauty which was on the Double Cleanse. This week I’m doing a review and a makeup look on their collaboration with It’s Judy Time. Judy created an eyeshadow palette and lipstick palette. If you’re unfamiliar with Judy, she’s a mom of three girls. So she created this palette so it was a practical and efficient for other ladies or moms out there that don’t have time to do the whole glam.

August Beauty Favorites

      It’s that time of the month (no I’m not talking about Aunt Flo lol ) but Monthly Beauty Favorites. You know what I love about Beauty Favorites is that I get to show you all of my favorites of the month.    August Beauty Favorites:    L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation: My favorite foundation to wear during the hot summers. Stays matte and it’s oil-free.    NYX Setting Powder:  A mineral finishing powder that sets your favorite look with a flawless finish; skin appears fresh and radiant throughout the day. Just a hint of color provides enough coverage to be worn over makeup or on bare moisturized skin.   Maybelline Lash Sensational:  I’m really picky when it comes to mascara. But Maybelline never fails me. I love their Sensational mascara. It’s waterproof, extra black and really extends the lashes. Even without my falsies my real eyelashes look long. Which I love so much.    Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter:  I have a huge obsession with ColourPop highlighters. When I saw that Makeup Revolution had a baked highlighter.. I had to try it out. The highlighter is so pigmented. Review on this highlighter coming this month!   E.L.F…

NYX Shine Killer & Pore Filler Primers

  I have a love hate relationships with primers. Why you ask? Well I have oily skin..which leads to my face looking shiny when I have makeup on. Certain primers work and others don’t. I will be reviewing NYX Shine Killer & Pore Filler primers.  I decided to try out the NYX Cosmetics Shine Killer ($14.00 – Regular Size).  NYX Cosmetics Claims:  Your ultimate weapon in the war on shine. Smooth it on before your favorite foundation for a fresh flawless marvelously matte look that lasts and lasts. Wear it solo too for a naturally shine-free look.  My thoughts are: This stuff works. Like I said I have really oily skin. I wash my face twice a day, use toner and moisturizer to eliminate the oils on my skin. I also use the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray to set my makeup. The primer is not sticky or thick. It feels more like a serum to be honest.  My foundation lasted longer and my oily skin seemed to be control throughout the day. Definitely recommend this if you have oily skin.  I also got the NYX Cosmetics Pore Filler ( $14.00 – Regular Size) NYX Cosmetics Claims:  Reduce the appearance of your pores…

Why It’s Important to Wash Brushes

I have so many makeup brushes but some of them I use daily or on other people when I do their makeup. I wash my brushes at least twice a week. I can’t stand seeing my brushes dirty. It’s so important to wash your makeup brushes at least once or twice a week.  Here’s why it’s important to wash your brushes…. Acne // Putting bacteria and germs back onto your face with a sticky, dusty makeup brush can aggravate underlying skin conditions like acne. If you have an open sore, pore or cracked skin, bacteria can start an infection. You’ll be swapping the infection back and forth creating a never-ending cycle of breakouts.  Changes of Color // If your makeup brushes are dirty, the intended shade will not appear on your skin as its true color. Also, blending and contouring your makeup for those dramatic effects will be difficult. You want your makeup to apply to your skin as smooth as a porcelain. Dirty makeup brushes will leave your skin spotty. Not cute.  Destroy Makeup Brushes // You may not think that leaving your brushes unclean will be bad but it is. It can destroy the bristles on your brush. Washing them leaves your brushes smooth and soft. You don’t…

My Everyday Brushes

  Happy Friday. The weekend is finally here. I get my boys on Sunday for two weeks this time and I can’t wait to see their cute and adorable faces. Need to start planning things to do with them while they’re here.    Anyways…Today I’m going to talk to you about my everyday brushes. These are brushes that I use constantly because I love them and I feel that they are amazing.    One // Beauty Blender – I use this to apply my foundation and concealer. This is a must have. If you don’t go get yourself one. Target has some if you don’t want to splurge on them. Before using it be sure to damp it with water otherwise your foundation is going to seep through the blender and not apply it to your face.    Two // LAB2 Blending Brush – I love this brush. I have tried other blending brushes but this one is so perfect.    Three // Real Techniques Setting Brush – Before I was using whatever brush I had that was small to apply my powder to set my concealer but this time I decided to get this brush because I’ve seen Nicole Guerriero…
