Tutorial: Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette Easy Green Smokey Eye

Hey Guys,
I recently did a makeup collab on Instagram with fellow beauty influence @khadijageorge_ . We both created fall makeup looks using the Jaclyn Hill Palette (you can check out my review of the palette HERE). I decided to film a tutorial as well so that you can see how I created the look. The look that I created was an easy green smokey eye. Check out the video below!

Essence Makeup Favorite Brow & Eye Products*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my final Essence Makeup favorites post. I will be sharing my favorite eye and brow products from a bunch of goodies that I received from Essence over the past few months. You can check out my favorite lip products HERE and face product HERE. If you want to check out their new Fall/Winter 2017 Collections you can see them HERE and HERE. Keep reading to check out the eye and brow products that were a hit for me!

Essence Makeup Favorite Brow & Eye Products*
I don't know about you but tiny things fascinate me. This kit is super cute but more importantly it is convenient, travel friendly, and is actually a good little brow kit.

This kit comes with 3 items for grooming your brows. Tweezers for shaping, an angled brow brush for contouring, and a spoolie for sculpting. I think all 3 little tools work very well. The tweezers surprised me especially. They do a great job at grasping on to hairs that allows you to pluck the hairs easily. I have had many full sized tweezers that just can't get a good grip on the hair. I think this kit is great for throwing in your purse for touch ups throughout the day. There have been times I've been in my car in the sunlight and I see a stray hair I need to pluck or an eyebrow that needs to be brushed back in place. Not everyone may like the tiny size. However, they are meant to be travel friendly.

Review: Nyx Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the new Nyx Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks. I was so excited when Nyx reached about sending these new lipsticks out for me to try. For those of you that have followed my blog since the very beginning, you might remember that some of my earlier blog posts were reviews of some of their other lip products. I have been a Nyx customer for many years and some of their products are holy grail status for me like my beloved Micro Brow. I couldn't wait to give these a try! Keep reading to hear my thoughts on these and to see some lip and arm swatches. I also included a link to my lip swatch video!

Top 5 Favorite Foundations for Combo/Oily Skin

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my top 5 favorite foundation for combo/oily skin. I have a mix of both drug store and high end brands. The video is a little choppy at times so I apologize for that in advance. I say um WAY too much and need to learn to just stop talking when I am trying to gather my thoughts. I had to edit it out may times which resulted in the choppiness. Regardless, I spent hours editing it so I decided not to delete it. We all learn from our mistakes and hopefully next time I won't have to do as much editing. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products

Hey Guys,
To continue on with my Essence Makeup favorites, today I am going to share face products. I will be discussing some of my favorite bronzers, highlighters, and blushes. You can check out my favorite lip products post HERE. Keep reading to hear about the face products!

Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products

Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder in Lighter Skin $4.99
Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products
 Here is what is said about this product on the Ulta site:
"For a sun-kissed, natural complexion! The Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder conjures up an irresistible natural-looking tan and has a great mattifying effect at the same time!"
Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products
On to my thoughts:
At first glance, this bronzer is giant! I also love that it is matte. I prefer matte bronzer over shimmers any day. I think it looks more natural. In the swatches above this looks a little on the orange side but on my face it doesn't look orange at all. I use this on  my cheeks and around my forhead and such. I think it will be best for my skin once I am lighter. The darker shade would definitely work better for medium skin tones. That being said, its a for an everyday natural bronze look to warm up your face.

August Favorites

Hey Guys,
I can't believe that the summer is coming to an end. The temperature is starting to get a little cooler and before we know it, Fall will be in full swing. Though I am really sad to see another summer end, I am SUPER excited for Gen Beauty NY at the end of of September. I feel like this is going to be the highlight of 2017 for me. I've never traveled alone so I feel a little sense of independence but more importantly, I get to meet a bunch of wonderful beauty influencers that support me (and vice versa) on a daily basis in our engagement pods. I also extremely excited about the whole Gen Beauty experience itself and the potential to network with brands. I don't want my expectations to be too high as there will be thousands of people there. At the very minimum, I will get to hang out out with a bunch of amazing women and get some free beauty products. I am going to do my very best to try to talk to as many brands as I can but I do understand that there are going to be hundreds of people trying to do the same thing. That being said, lets get into my favorites for this month. As you may have noticed, I have been trying out a ton of Essence Makeup products that they so generously sent to me. I have a bunch that I was especially loving this month. Stay tuned for more reviews of my Essence Favorites. Check out my video below to see what I was loving this month!
