It Cosmetics: Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector

Hi everyone!

Lately life has been so non-stop for me and I can't seem time find a minute to even sit and breathe!  Between 2 kids, a full time job and taking care of our house and day to day activities and chores, I feel like we are just cranking our days out without even sitting down to take a moment to ourselves!

But we are loving the time with our kiddos and just can't believe where our days go.  The other day I was going through my husband's iPhone and looking at old pictures of our daughter (who is 3.5 yrs old now) and we just can't believe how much she has turned into a little lady now.  She is such the diva!!  Then we have our almost 3 month old son, who is just growing taller each week!  I told my husband we are just so blessed and life is so beautiful!!

Anyways, enough of the sappiness, haha, on to my review!  Based on everything I've said above..even though life is great and has also been giving me some serious dark circles!! I never had a major issue with dark circles, but lately with all my fatigue my skin is changing!!

I've been wearing It Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector.  It's not only a concealer but it's a corrector in one.  It has properties built into that not only conceal but cancel out the discoloration as well.  It helps cancel out the grayness under my eyes and just brightens the look of my skin.

Here is my before:

Here is my after:

It Cosmetics claims that this product is 8 hours of sleep in a jar, and I have to agree!! Watch my video below to find out my thoughts and how I apply it.

REVIEW: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light

Hi everyone!!

I'm always looking for a glowy and bronzy look that just makes my skin look so radiant and healthy! I was looking for a good highlight powder and came across these Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders.

**What are these powders?

"A universal finishing powder that features state-of-the-art technology to recreate the most exquisitely flattering types of light. "

These powders come in 6 shades and are named after different light settings.  I chose Radiant light for my skintone.  You can use these powders on certain parts of your face just to highlight or you can use them all over as a setting powder to give you an all over glow.  These powders are light enough to use all over.  I actually like to use this all over as a setting powder and it gives my whole face a beam of light :)  Here are some pictures:

Radiant light used all over my face

Blended swatch

As you can see by the swatches they are very light and can be used all over your face as a setting powder with an extra glow :)

I hope you like this look.  You can get this powder at Sephora or and hope you guys like it as much as I do!

Take care

Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday! I hope you guys are all having a great weekend! I haven't done much all weekend, just getting ready for this baby! We have about 2-3 weeks to go and just finishing up last minute things before he makes his debut :)

Today I wanted to take some time to review 2 new DRUGSTORE finds that I'm in love with!! As you guys saw in my previous video, I'm always loving to try new foundations and just getting that flawless face look :)

The 2 products that I will be reviewing today are the Maybelline FITMe Shine-Free foundation stick and the Flower by Drew Barrymore foundation stick.  I LOVE foundation sticks, they are so easy to apply, are portable and travel friendly :)  Here are some pictures of both products:

I am a shade 240/Golden Beige in the Maybelline FITMe foundation and SF5 in the Flower stick foundation. 

**I am an NC42 in MAC for reference** 

Both are a perfect match for me and apply effortlessly.  They are very smooth when you apply it to the face and blend very easily with a sponge or foundation brush.

They both last all day and for my combination skin type it controls the shine.

I do use a primer and setting powder with both of these foundations to make the lasting power stronger.

I also do need to use a concealer for my under eyes because this is not a super full coverage foundation and if you have spots that need concealing then you'll still need a concealer.

Overall, I am very impressed and will continue to use these foundations for months to come.  

I got both of these foundations at Wal-Mart. 
So they were both under $10!! Can't beat that price point!!

Maybelline - $6.94
Flower - $8.98

Flower by Drew Barrymore stick foundation in SF5
**Flower is exclusively sold at Wal-Mart** 
Maybelline FITMe Shine-Free foundation in 240

Here are some pictures of my face of the day (FOTD) today and I'm wearing the Maybelline FITMe Foundation in 240/Golden Beige.  

Thanks for stopping by today and if you'd like to see me do a tutorial on the above look please let me know in the comments below.  If you have any suggestions on what you would like for me to review next then please let me know.  Don't forget to subscribe!

Take care,

My current summer skincare routine!

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you my current skin care routine for this summer.  I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and have seen some awesome results!  So I'm using this new line called Clinicians Complex and I am in LOOOVE! :) My skin has never been more smooth and radiant ever before!

Since I've been pregnant and also over 30, my skin has lost a bit of it's natural radiance :(  You would think I would have that natural pregnancy "glow" - but no not here!!  So I decided to do something about it...

I normally just use drugstore cleansers and moisturizers but they haven't been very effective for me.  So I decided to engage my friend Brianna, who owns and manages  I told her what my issues were and she told me to try these 3 products:

1. Clinicians Complex Skin Bleaching Cleanser
2. Clinicians Complex Facial Toner
3. Clinicians Complex 6% Skin Bleaching Cream

Here is the video showing my review on the above products and where to purchase them:

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday and please don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel and to follow my blog!

My top 5 picks for summer foundation

Hi everyone!

This is my very first blog and very first blog post :)  I have been wanting to write about makeup and beauty tips for years but never actually sat down to share my thoughts and opinions with the rest of the world!  I finally decided to sit down and share my opinions, thoughts, and advice with you all.  

I have been obsessed with makeup since middle school and my obsession has just grown over the years.  I find it to be my getaway from the real world to play with makeup and try new brands and even give advice to my friends and family on what products work and what doesn't.

I'm always asked about my makeup, skin, and hair so I figured why not share with everyone who is willing to :)

My first post is going to be on - My top 5 picks for summer foundation.  Here is a youtube video that I just posted on my suggestions that work for me:

Right now, I'm 8 months pregnant and in a high humidity climate! So I really need something that is going to last all day and not melt off my face!

Here are the products mentioned in the video:

1. Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combo skin in Medium/Deep
2. Flower stick foundation by Drew Barrymore - shade SF5
3. Ben Nye Matte HD foundation - shades Brulee & Soft Caramel
4. Bare Minerals Ready compact foundation - Golden Tan
5. MAC Studio Tech - NC42
