Join me as I try out new products, hairstyles, and makeup looks. I'm not a licensed makeup artist or cosmetologist, what I do may or may not work for you. Feel free to ask questions and check out my YouTube channel!
Anonymous asked: What's a good facial cleanser or something to help with dark spots or acne?
I haven’t found a cleanser that is good for dark spots or acne. I use shea butter on my dark spots and I can see a difference in the color. If your skin is oily, you should only apply it to the dark spots and do it twice a day. I’ve noticed that it works better on fresh blemishes and take more time on old ones.
I don’t have any special cleansers to reccommed to you but one thing that has turned my skin around from breakouts is witch hazel. I use it after I wash my face, both morning and night, to make sure that my face is really clean. I put a little on a cotton round and wipe my face with it then continue on with my skincare routine.
Another thing you can do is exfoliate your skin at least once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells. It helps the shea butter work it’s magic and whatever spot treatment really get into the pores of the bump. I hope this was helpful and gave you some ideas as to what to try. These things work pretty well for me and are what I’m using at the moment.
A couple of weeks ago I got the pleasure to work with the amazing Chicago artist, Daryn Alexus. She’s super sweet, hard-working, and has an amazing voice.
It’s such a blessing to see my work come to life along with someone else’s vision. Her single Go Wild is the upbeat, fun, and contagious music that I love to listen to. Here is the video that I got to do her makeup for! Make sure you check it out and follow her!
I feel like I’ve done a look before similar to this but I wanted to try these babies out. I have 3 Wet N Wild palettes already but have never come close to using them. Today I realized that I was truly missing out.
These are pigmented like a mother and the smoothest shadows I have ever used. I didn’t expect the yellow to come out as good as it did at all. I did apply them over NYX jumbo pencil in milk, so they aren’t standing alone. I’ve tried so many yellow eyeshadows and this by far is the best one. I live for bright shadows and these are perfect to travel with. I used every shadow except the light pink and white, no extra shadows were applied.
These limited edition Color Icon trios were $2.99 a pop and are offered in 6 different combinations. I’m probably going to go back and get the other 3 because I’m obsessed now.
I hope you enjoyed this frugal find! Don’t let the price fool you with cheap products, sometimes it’ll be the best thing you’ve ever come across!

Thank you! I’m so happy I inspired you! I hope my tutorials help you with eyeshadow and anything else you want to learn!!
This is the first time that she’s let me put makeup on her and I thought it would be a good idea to film it for you guys! I used the BH Cosmetics foundation here so if you were curious to see how it applies, here it is! She wouldn’t let me put lashes on her but it’s ok. I hope you guys enjoy the video!
Lip Monthly is a new subscription box that is geared toward lip product lovers. You get 2-3 full size lip products and 1-2 sample size products that don’t have to be lip related. The box is $10 a month but YouTube bloggers have a code for $5 off your first box.
In this months box I received Revlon ColorBurst lipgloss in Sunbaked, City Color Lip Lush lip crayon in Wine, City Color Lip Balm in Bright Red, Appeal Cosmetics lipstick in Red Light District, and John Frieda Frizz-Ease Straight Crême.
Please read my review for this company and other reviews that you can find before purchasing this box. Many people feel that they are being sold products that are discontinued, like the Appeal Cosmetics lipstick.
There’s a new subscription box in town and it a Lip Monthly. I found out about them through a YouTube video and there was a discount code that made the box $5. I don’t know about you but $5 won me over. However, I should’ve looked at the comments and reviews for the company before I even want to the sit and paid for the subscription.
First off, I paid for the subscription and the it wouldn’t allows me to log in. It consistently said I didn’t have an account. I thought that it might’ve been crashed from high traffic. I visited the site a few hours later and still had the same problem, not to mention I didn’t receive a confirmation e-mail right after paying. Those emails are sent out automatically after purchases so I was a bit worried when I didn’t get mine. I waited about a week before I emailed the company tying to cancel my subscription and get a refund. They sent the confirmation email so fast it was ridiculous.
I received the shipping email and got my box on time. I’m going to wait another month and see if I get I have any more problems. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else subscribing to Lip Monthly. Even though I did receive my box, I had to contact the company to even get a confirmation email. If I have to do all of that just for and email it’s not worth it. The website still will not let me sign in or send an email letting me change the pass word. I’ll post what I got in tomorrow’s post. Some YouTube bloggers have a code for $5 off the $10 box but don’t waste your time. I’m happy with the box but not the company.
This months theme is Sensationally Sunkissed and I’d have to say they nailed it pretty good. The two products I’m most excited to try are the Benefit They’re Real Mascara and Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB cream eyeshadow. I’m going to do individual posts on the two once I try them and let you know if they’re worth the price. The Tints & Sass lip and cheek stain seems like an interesting product. This tint is in the shade cherry and smells just like a cherry lollipop. I’ll more than likely pass the Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil to a friend because I don’t tan.
Lately I’ve been all about skin care and the Jojoba Skin Soother Gel Cream will definitely get put to use. That’s all that came in this month’s Ipsy bag! stay tuned to see how these products work!
I feel like I’m always finding something that’s worth trying for a great price on Instagram.
This set of 4 Kabuki brushes were $6.46 on Amazon. I found out about them through a comparison post with the Sigmax Kabuki Kit that’s $97. The Sigma set comes with 5 brushes: flat, rounded, angled, tapered, and flat angled. The Amazon set is only missing flat angled kabuki brush.
I don’t have the Sigma set so this will not be a comparison between the two. The synthetic hairs on each brush are dense and soft to the touch. They aren’t hard too move around on the face and will be great for lightly buffing in product. The aluminum ferrule and black wooden handle give the brushes a simple and clean look, also making them easy to pair in a kit or with other brushes. Crazycity is the company that is selling the brushes on Amazon and they are shipped from china. It took about 3 weeks to get mine. I’ll be trying them out this week and will let you know how I feel about them.
Here’s a link to the brushes if your interested and you can check out the reviews of the product there too. I hope this frugal find was helpful!
