My Everyday Makeup

Let me just say, how excited I am, for this is my 100th post (cheers). I wanted to make this post based on the amount of questions I’ve received pertaining to my everyday face. My everyday makeup has been consistent for the past 3 months.

During the Spring and Summer, I like to keep my makeup to a minimal: black liner, lipstick, blush, and a dust of powder. Furthermore, I like my routine 10 minutes or less, as I am always on the go, and don’t have the time.


Prior to applying my makeup, I like to moisturize my face with Ambi Essentials Daily Moisturizer.This is by far my favorite moisturizer, for it is light on the skin, oil-free, and protects my skin from the sun’s harsh rays with an SPF of 15. After applying my moisturizer, I like to do my cat-eye (black gel liner), at the moment I’m using Elf’s gel liner. Although, this gel liner runs like crazy throughout the day, it gets the job done. Next, I like to conceal any old acne scars, or discoloration with my L’Oreal True Match Concealer. The last steps are applying blush, lipstick, and my Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder to set my face (great for my oily t-zone). My lipstick and blush are reflected by my mood, consequently changing on a daily basis. However, I’ve been reaching for my Nars Dolce Vita blush more often. It just gives a nice natural flush of color to my NC50 complexion. And this completes my everyday makeup! Feel free to list some of your everyday makeup products 😉

Moroccan Mix Makeup Look

Happy Thursday! Now, if the weekend would hurry up and get here. I know I haven’t been putting up makeup looks as often as I should, but in all honesty, it’s just been too hot here in FL. In addition to the hot weather, I’ve decided to do a makeup cleanse this month.

A makeup cleanse is when you don’t make ANY makeup cosmetic purchases. I’ve been good all month *smiles *. Rather than fishing for new products, I decided to use products from my kit. There are a lot of products I rediscovered, and have fallen in love all over again. This month alone, I have finished 8 products (making room for new products lol). One product I rediscovered is my Black Radiance Moroccan Mix eyeshadow palette. I purchased this palette months ago from Walmart for $4. I really like this palette. However, I find that the turquoise color is not as pigmented, as the other colors in the palette, and it needs a base to even show up on my complexion. Nonetheless, this palette looks good on all skin-tones. This is the look I created using this palette. I would love to know what your favorite drugstore eyeshadows are 😉

Sun Goddess Makeup Look


Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a gratifying Independence Day. I spent most of my day at work, but got off in time for delicious BBQ, and a great view of the fireworks at Lake Eola.
For those who live in FL, the weather has been down right awful to us. No joke, everyday for the past 2 weeks has been HOT. I’m talking high 90’s, leading to low 100’s without a breeze of wind. During the summer, I tend to limit the amount of makeup I wear. In the daytime, my makeup is restricted to lipgloss, mascara, and a dust of powder. I normally get “dolled up” at night, whereas the temperature is a bit cooler, and, I don’t feel like my makeup is going to melt off of my face. Not too much has been happening at night, so I decided to create a look inspired by this weather. This look can be worn in the daytime, or at night if you choose. Nonetheless, a bit more glitter on the lid, will instantly GLAM UP this look for a nighttime look. All products are listed below; I would love to hear what your favorite “go-to” products for summer are. Feel free to share 😉
