  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • Begin by placing a white base on your lid and blending it over your lid, this will help make the color pop more than a primer will do on its own.
  • Now using your eye-shadow brush begin to apply a white color in the outer corner going about 1/3 onto the lid.
  • Using the same brush or a different one, apply a light baby blue color next to the white blending the two together.
  • Next apply a blue darker the the baby blue and apply it next to it blending into each other.
  • Finally apply a dark blue into the outer corner and blend into the other blue.

  • Using the same brush apply a yellow over the green in the crease and blend together.
  • Apply a highlight.
  • Apply a white eyeliner to your waterline. 
  • Apply Mascara. 
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation. For this I used the stippling brush.
  • Taking a contour brush and elf bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jaw line. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a blush to the apple of your cheeks.

BH Cosmetics


I had purchased many items from BH Cosmetics a couple of months of go through a sale they were having. I've been trying to review them but every time I am going to something comes up and I have to delay the review. So with out further to do let's get started.

 The first thing I'm going to review is the 120 4th edition pallet. This pallet consists of mostly shimmery colors. However, some are not as shimmery as others. These colors are so vibrant and gorgeous. When you put a white base under them the colors becomes even brighter as you will see from my swatches. I will admit I  have not used all the colors from the pallet. I give this one two thumbs up it is worth the buy, especially when they are on sale.

L: Without a base R: With a white base



The second pallet I bought was the 88 Matte pallet and if you seen my tutorials you'll know that this is my favorite pallet. I love the colors they are so bright and just gorgeous. A little goes a long way. When used over a white base the colors become more intense. The only disappointment with this pallet is the yellow isn't as bright as I would want it to be. Also,another thing that is a disappoint with all their pallets is that the glue that holds the eye-shadows in place isn't very good I have two eye-shadows, one in each pallet, that pops out, but if you can live with that then the pallets are amazing. This is also another great buy since the colors are so amazing.
Swatches:
L: Without Base R: With a white base












I had gotten three eyeliners from them as well. The gel eyeliner is amazing it stays all day and doesn't budge at all,which is awesome the one I got is in onyx. However,the only thing that I do not like is that it is not as dark as I want it to be I have to go over it with an eye-shadow to make it dark.



I got the liquid eyeliner pen. That one is my absolute favorite. It easy to use and can give me a thin line when I want one or a thick line. It is amazing. It's budge proof as well which is good for this crazy Texas weather. I would say it is a must buy from them.




Finally,the last eyeliner I bought was their pencil liner in frost. I regret buying this. It doesn't show up on my waterline when I use it. So I tried to use it as a base to get my money's worth out of it. It hurts to do so, but of course I would probably keep trying to find some way to use it. I don't like this liner I don't know if the other ones are good so I can't speak for their whole collection all I know is that Frost isn't worth the buy. It's completely awful!
Swatches: Gel, Liquid pen, Frost






The last things I bought were two of their lip glosses. I got Studious and 80's Diva. Studious is more of a very light almost nude pink it's super pretty. 80's Diva is a very hot pink color, more or less and I love it.Out of these two my go to color is Studious. Both glosses are great in terms of color payout. The only things that I do not like is that they have that sticky feel to them and the colors don't last that long. I think they are great for the price they are sold at. I would probably try other colors from their collection.

Hello Peoplez, 
So ever day this week I've made a tutorial. The looks are different but they all have one thing in common they are colorful! I've been hard at work trying to get a video posted. I've been trying since Tuesday and I don't know why youtube wouldn't take it but anyways it is up now. So I've been busy making tutorials and I wanted to blog today but didn't really have anything to blog about so I thought I would just update y'all on my current activities. Oh, before I forget I posted my BH Cosmetics Review, you can find it in the review section, but let me know if it's now showing up. I've been having problems with it, but I think I fixed it. Changing topics, I've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Dani Duffy of My Make-up and Beauty Obsession! It's such an honor! Well changing subjects again, I'm super excited about my up coming looks!

Also, I have been hard at work creating a header and an ad button and if you would like to swap ads/buttons let me know. Well have a great day everybody, I'll talk to you soon.

Wet n Wild Lipstick








A couple of weeks ago I went to Houston and my aunt had bought me a Wet n Wild Lipstick and a make-up sponge but I'm going to write a review for that tomorrow. I have never tried any of their lipsticks, so I was ecstatic to finally be able to try one. The one I got was 903C Just Peachy. I am in love with this lipstick! Ever since I've gotten it, I have been wearing it. The color is so pretty and I just absolutely love it. I t doesn't have that sticky feel that some lipsticks have when you wear them. Overall, this lipstick is amazing and if you haven't tried it you should

ifabbo Endorsed/Weekend Plans

Hello Peoplez,
Yesterday I was notified that my application has been approved and I am now endorsed by ifabbo! I'm so happy about it. I have no idea what else to say but I'm totally looking forward to this experience. :)

Finally the weekend has arrived! This weekend I was planning on putting up more reviews but my friend/sista from another mother is coming over today and I haven't seen her in what feels like forever. So my original plans will be put on hold until tomorrow. Today we might end up doing a "photo-shoot" maybe, who knows but if there is one I will definitely put pictures up. What are your guy's plan for the weekend?

I think that's enough blogging for the day I'm gonna go take a nap since I'm running on 4 hours of sleep.

Have a super fantabulous weekend!

London Soho New York Beauty Sponge

London Soho New York Beauty Sponge


As mentioned in yesterday's post while I was in Houston my aunt had bought me a lipstick and make-up sponge. I've been wanting one for the longest just to try it out. I love this sponge I think it's better to use than a brush, since it can better apply foundation under your eyes and around your nose. The only thing that I do not like about it, is that is easily stains. No matter how much I clean it I still have stains from my foundation on it. I can totally live with that but I rather it maintain it's pinkness. I know there are different one out there but I think this is the cheapest. I believe it was $7.99 at Wal-greens.

M.I.A

Hello peoplez,
I know lately I haven't really been posting videos, blogging, or tweeting. I kinda been with my boyfriend and I haven't really been able to get on a computer and for the video posting part I left my memory card in Houston and haven't been able to make any videos and I currently have none saved to my computer. But this week I will be posting a review of my Bh Cosmetics pallets and other things from the company that I purchased. By next week I will be able to start posting videos since I will be getting my card back this weekend and I already have ideas of what videos I wanna make. So keep an eye out for that and I shall talk to you soon. :)
