Makeup Must Haves

dsc_0278

A beginner or not, I feel like these types of posts are really helpful. Either they give you a head start on what makeup products to buy, or just simply if you’re looking for something new or interesting. This post will consist of products that I think not only will make your makeup look better, but also help it last longer. So without further ado, let’s just get into this post.

Lid primers are definitely something you need to add on to your makeup routine. The first few days I did my makeup without any primer was a total nightmare. My eyeshadow would be a complete mess, my eyeshadows won’t blend in properly and the pigmentation that the makeup brand promises does not show any effect. You can either just use the lid primer and go straight to eyeshadow, or what I like to do is to set it using any light shade eyeshadow and this will help to make eyeshadow blending much easier and faster.

I would use my  beauty blender like a crazy woman when trying to blend in my lid primer. I would just stab my lid which results in hurting my eyeball, and it would leave streaks and it did just did not look good at all. I was so fed up with hurting my eyeballs that I just took my foundation brush and used it. This technique changed my life completely. It left off a smooth finish to my lids, and it was soft. Even though this is a foundation brush, it will help to blend in any cream products giving a perfect finish look.

If you don’t like liquid foundation or any foundation in a bottle really, then this product is targeting you. We’ve been across compact powders, which is basically powder that is compacted. A lot of you guys might be wondering, powders can barely have enough coverage. I though the same thing, but we thought wrong. This Smashbox powder gives you enough coverage, not too much, just enough. It helps to give off that natural look, making sure not to cover everything, because what’s natural in that? And sometimes i just like to use this to set anything really.

Speaking of setting powders, I’m pretty sure a lot of you guys have heard great reviews about the Laura Mercier setting powder and so on and so forth. So I’m not going to go into too much detail, because we all know that it does it’s job and it’s great and everyone needs it. But this powder really does brighten up my face, my face goes from dead to alive in two seconds, well technically 5 minutes. Gotta love baking you know?

I know you’re all probably over the powder products but I promise you that this is the last one. Blush is important, whether you’re going for a natural look or a night out look, you need blush. Not only are the blushes just so pretty, but it will give color to your face. That’s all I have to say about blushes.

As promised, we’re over the powder products. It’s time for some more eye products. If you have small eyes, then you would know the struggle of trying to figure out how to make them look bigger. Searching high and low on Youtube until beauty gurus start saying to use a white color for your water line. I did exactly that but I saw no result whatsoever. I decided to try out a black one, I finally realized what I was missing in my makeup look. So if you still have not tried it out, then get your hands on it or something similar.

Tarte Lash Liner

Last but certainly not least, eye liner. Just like I said before about how those products complete the look, this is the same thing. If you were to compare last month’s winged eyeliner to today, then you would see a drastic change. And all thanks to this eye liner, this eye liner is great for beginners. I have tried multiple eyeliners, but this one is the best. It glides on very easily, and doesn’t move around. So if you have shaky hands, like me, then this eyeliner is perfect for you.

July Favorites

IMG_2675.JPG

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. I’m posting the monthly favorites a bit early not like usual because I know I’m going to forget. Just like how I forgot to post a June favorites. I got a lot of new products this month and these are some of my favorites.

I have been loving the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits, their formulas are beyond this world and if you apply lip balm, then they won’t dry up. I’ve ordered multiple colors and I have a specific blog post just for that so if you want to check that out then click here.

I’ve been specifically loving the shades, Dolce K and Posie K. I love Dolce because it is more in the neutral side while Posie is perfect if you’re looking for a more dark pink look. I definitely recommend these products, they are worth every penny and the wait.

I’ve read a lot of blog posts about the dry shampoo Baptise, but that’s not it. There were some mixed reviews about it so i still have not tried it out. I did try out the Herbal Essentials, and guys, this product will save your life. If you are a lazy person like me, you would know that washing our hair is like a chore. This will change everything, I use this product for four days straight and it always makes my hair feel super fresh.

The minute I saw the Laura Mercier Illuminators in Sephora, I started freaking out. A lot of people have been loving this highlighter and I decided to try it out. I will never regret this purchase ever, it is super pigmented. This shade is the ‘Addiction’.

I also got the original Chocolate Bar by Too Faced, I have talked about this product on my Instagram if you want to check that out. (@thechicommunity) This palette smells like chocolate, and the shades are super pigmented. I think the colors on this palette are perfect for an everyday look, they have mattes and shimmery colors.

If you were living under the rocks, then you wouldn’t have known about these famous Animal Masks. They’re face masks that look like any animal, i have tried the Rabbit and now the Koala and Panda. These are great for wearing them with someone or taking a bunch of selfies. These are perfect and the packaging is so cute and simple.

If you love Disney songs (who does not?) and pop artists like Ariana Grande and Jessie J, then you’re in luck because this CD is a mix of both. All these famous artists sing ‘Let it Go’ or ‘Zero to Hero’. Then you should definitely buy this CD.

We Love Disney

That is all for my July Favorites, thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

 

Favorite Perfumes

IMG_1816.JPG

There are fragrances that smell amazing and you can’t choose on which one to get, and then there are perfumes where they just smell.. too much. I don’t know about you but I hate fragrances that smell like sweet candy or very sweet strawberry, I’m more into vanilla and a really soft sweet smell (Like not those really strong ones) Anyway, these are my 4 top favorites perfumes of all time.

Okay so the first two are Ari by Ariana Grande and Chanel Chance, these two smell amazing. They both smell like fruits and floral, so if you are into that you should definitely try them out. The Ari one smells more like marshmallow and a little bit of sweet, but not too much. The Chance smells more on the feminine side, it’s way more softer and lighter.

The last two are Gilly Hicks Point Piper and Aeropostale Sugar Rush, they’re both very elegant and simple. Gilly Hicks is very simple and elegant, it’s great for the beach, and it has a fruity scent as well, but fresh not the artificial ones. The Sugar Rush does smell like one of those perfumes when it’s just a bit too sweet but it’s amazing. It’s very girly, flowery, and fruity.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

May Favorites

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Can’t believe we’ve already finished half of the year already. Is it just me or is 2016 going by fast? Sorry I haven’t posted in a while exams are everywhere, but I only have one more left on Sunday. Anyway, I didn’t have a lot of favorites this month because I didn’t really try new products or bought a lot of things. Let’s get started.

First up is the Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub, this stuff is to die for. My skin has never felt so smooth before, this is the only thing that motivates me to shower. It’s amazing, I have more details on this specific product in my Soap and Glory review if you want to learn more about it.

Next up is the matte liquid lipstick by Kat Von D. This stuff is amazing, the first time I tried it which was about a year ago I fell in love. The color is straight up brown, but a beautiful brown. It’s great to wear it for a natural makeup look. It’s in the shade Lolita.

Third thing is this novel written by Thomas Cobb. If you guys are interested in police departments and are looking for great books, you’re in luck. This book is beyond amazing, it’s all about mysteries and trying to solve the crime. It gives you an insight of what it feels like being a cop.

Darkness The Color of Snow:

“A haunting, suspenseful, and dazzlingly written novel of secrets, corruption, tragedy, and vengeance from the author of Crazy Heart—the basis for the 2009 Academy Award-winning film. An electrifying crime drama and psychological thriller in which a young cop becomes the fulcrum of a community’s grief and rage in the aftermath of a tragic accident”

To end of this post, I’ll talk about this bag that I have been using for my exams. The bag is amazing, it is a long square width bag, so its great for putting papers or books in there so they won’t get crumpled. I got this bag from Free People, they have amazing cute bags.

This is it for my May Favorites, thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed. All the love.

Amazon Haul (Part 2)

IMG_1340

i recently ordered from amazon, and not all my packages have been delivered to me. a few weeks back, i did an amazon haul, the first part. today, some of my packages have arrived and decided to share it with you guys.

i have heard a lot about soap and glory over the past few years, but this year, a lot of people started loving it, so i decided to give it a go. i ordered this box from amazon, it contains a shower gel, body butter, and a moisturizer  (not sure), i will definitely be giving you guys a review on these products.

IMG_1343

if you have read my previous posts, you would know that i’m in love with shadowhunters. i never really owned a merchandise (other than the mug and the books) form them, so i ordered this sweater. i ordered it in a really big size, so it can be an oversized sweater. the material is very soft, and it’s just amazing.

IMG_1344

in english, we were in groups and we had to pick out books to discuss throughout the months. my friend chose this book, i am legend, and she said it’s about vampires. ever since i was 12, i loved vampires. so i had to get this book.

next is a portable charger, i have multiple portable chargers, but none of them seem to work. this one looked good so i decided to get it.

people these days have been into those black velvet chokers, i’ve never really tried chokers that thick, so i decided to give it a go. definitely adding this to my chokers collection.

and lastly is this body scrub from soap and glory. i read a post, few weeks back, about how amazing this product is. i don’t remember the blog, which sucks, but if you’re reading it, please comment down below so i can tag you.

are you a fan of any of these products? thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. all the love.

Chokers

IMG_1333

what better way to accessorize simple and plain outfits? chokers! the minute they came back, i fell in love with them. they looked great on everyone, it’s one of the best ways to spice up a simple outfit.

IMG_1334

okay so first up lets start off with the tattoo chokers. i collected a lot of them, like a lot. i think when people think of chokers, this will be the first thing that will come up in your mind. they can be simple, or they can be too much. as you can see, the top one (the one still not opened) has so many charms that you can hang. i all love all these chokers.

IMG_1335

this one has got to be my favorite one ever. i love it so much. i am a girly girl, so when i saw this choker, i just had to get it. it’s so beautiful. it a little bit ‘longer’ than a choker, it lays on your collar bone, but i still consider it as a choker.

IMG_1336

and then this last one which my friend got me for my birthday. at first i didn’t think this would fit around my neck, but surprisingly, it did. this choker as well, lays on your collar bone. it has a small lavender jewel to it, and the black thing is actually leather.

so these are all my chokers so far, do you like chokers? thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. all the love.
