July favorites

Hello my makeup loves Welcome back to my makeup adventure. This is a very exciting post for me why you ask because it is my very first favorites on my blog. These have been my holy grail products for the past month . I wanted to share with you guys and if you have any questions please ask away. The is why I started a blog so you can learn from my knowledge  and I can learn from you guys. Have fun.

First up is of course are palettes just a fact to know about me I that I am a palette addict I always thought that you get the most bang for your buck with palettes and I love coming up with looks with my palettes. This is the Lorac Pro Palette 2 and let’s take a moment to look at the swatches above which are no primer and just one swipe of the shadows they are 8 mattes & 8 shimmery  shadows that extremely buttery and pigmented. As you can see there are light colors and dark colors that you use to create a whole lot of looks.

image

The second palette is another palette that is popular in the makeup world it is the urban decay Naked Palette. I am pretty sure that you all have either swatched or seen this palette since it’s been out for a while now. The pigmentation on its palette is out of this world and that is one of the many reasons why it is so popular. The shadows includes shimmery, mattes & glittery. It has golds rose golds and dark colors great for day and night also and perfect for traveling.

Concelar has been my best friends and these to are my go to being a mom sometimes you have bags for days and these concelar have been my life saver. The mybelline fit Me concelar retails for $6.99 it covers up all dark circles without making your under eye look cakey. The next one is called Dior skin star concelar this retails for $36 it eliminates all dark circles which  why I use it when my undereye are really dark and the thing I love about this concelar is that there is no creasing at all. Over time it helps eliminate dark circles over time.

image

Mascara is one of favorite makeup products probably because I have absolutely  no lashes and want them to be long and voluminous. These two products are my holy grails the first one is the Toofaced Better than sex mascara $23 If you want lush and intense lashes this is the mascara for you. It not only good for your top lashes but also great for your bottoms lashes also. The next is a lash plumping serum by Dior $28.50 this will help you create a smooth layer for your mascara but it will help plump and help make your lashes look voluminous. It will also help with lash growth.

I have recently been suffering  with extremely dry skin and which I why I  have switch up my skin care routine which I will be doing post about soon. The first primer is the Too Faced Hangover RX which contains coconut $32 this gives you a hydrated glowy dewy healthy skin and this truely has hydrate my skin for my makeup.

image

This is the Laura Mercier Radiance  Bronze  Foundation  Primer  as you can see in the picture it is a true bronze cream.it gives my skin a nice bronze glowy  look which my skin needed since it’s been so dry and dull lately. This was a sample size that I got as a point perk fom sephora but the full size retails for $34.

image

I recently received this foundation from influenster which is a website that sends you new products to use and review. This foundation is the super style better Skin Foundation it suppose to make your skin better as you use it which suppose to take 3 weeks I have been using this for a week now and I haven’t seen a change in my skin but this foundation is great coverage and the texture is so Mousse  and just feels so nice on the skin as you can see in the picture above it just a great foundation.

The makeup gods have answered our contour with this too faced Cocoa contour palette $40 has the all the perfect shades you need to Contour the perfect face and it is a great for all skin colors and types of skin because it is made with antioxidants rich exclusive cocoa complex. It does blend easily and does not make your face look muddy or dirty.

The second one is the Cocoa powder foundation $34 this lies on to the skin flawless and effortlessly and gives your skin this healthy look.

The newest routine in the makeup world is called baking which is brighten and setting you concelar and this translucent powder is the perfect helper to do that. It is also great to set your foundation if you want to use a powder.  This is the Laura Mercier translucent powder $22- $37  it comes in two sizes the smaller ize is 0.33 Oz is $22 and the 1oz is $37. I would recommend  buying the smaller size and trying it out.

The last and final favorite is this loreal lip gloss which I got as a gift from a dear friend an am addicted to it. It is a dupe for ysl plump glossy stain. The loreal lip gloss is super glossy and pigmented.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Blushed Copper

image

The makeup  gods  has  blessed  us with this beautiful Blushed Copper skin Perfector . This is awesome over your blush it gives your face that awesome summer and spring glow it is super pigmented a little goes a very long way. It is very pretty bronze color with a nice gold undertone and over your blush it completes your look perfectly. Not only can it used as a bronzer or blush but it would also be gorgeous  as a eyeshadow the pigmentation in this skin Perfector is so good that it can be a beautiful copper eyeshadow if you think your skin is too light to wear it as a bronzer. I always wanted a makeup item like this that I can multiple uses out of one product it  and get the bang for my buck. Speaking of buck it is a little pricey it is $38 for the skin Perfector

image

This is the One perfecting brush this brush can be used on liquid creams and powders it can be used to apply liquid foundation creamy bb creams and your powders and most importantly it is great to Contour with. I have heard several makeup bloggers complain about how long and weirdly shaped it is they also say that they cannot see how it apply all those things it claims It too. I think it is perfect to Contour with and apply powders. It comes with a instruction paper with pictures  to show you exactly how to use it with different types of products which is so  very useful. This brush does retail at sephora for $49 which I know is a bit pricey bit I think once you read the instructions it comes with and perfect the different purposes it serves then it is worth every penny.

Tarte-tastic way of storing my tarte brushes

image

Hello my loves if you are tartelette like I am and don’t have any ideas of storing these beautiful tarte brushes here is a way!  Everyone on my instagram loved it so much that My idea was featured on the Boxy charm instagram. I reused the boxes from my Tarte  Maracuja Oil and filled them with some beads and there it is. One of the packaging  is wood and the other is cardboard but once you fill them with a little bit of beads which you find at Michaels or any craft store then you get this beautiful holder that looks like it cost you quite a bit which it didn’t. The tarte brushes are awesome brushes and I love them more than any of the other ones out there they don’t shred they wash great and they apply your makeup flawless, so if you are thinking of purchasing any new brushes give these a try you won’t regret them. Also most of the time if you purchase your tarte cosmectics on qvc.com most of them comes with the brush it needs to apply the product for one price. The brushes themselves retails for $30 – $40 by itself so you are getting an awesome deal on qvc. Have fun shopping and hope my idea helps you. Love you all Aliah💋

This vanity my hubby surprised me with a couple months ago ever since I was a little girl I wanted one and I finally have it. I don’t really know where or how much he paid but I do know they do sell them online amazon has them but do be careful because when we bought mines it did have a Crack and the person we got it from didn’t want to give us a discount luckily my husband is a good handy man and he fixed it  so make sure you so your ask let’s of question and your research before paying any money to anyone.

Ladies stop buying those high end lip glosses,lip stains and lipsticks because for half the price you can grab these babies these are the Rimmel Provocalips Kiss Proof Lip Colour. You can find these Target,CVS,Walgreens and Ulta. They are $6.49 each. On the packaging it says it is a kiss proof lip colour that will last you for 16 hrs. It has two ends as seen in the photo the dide with the colour has the intense lip colour it self which is so pigmented and gorgeous,then on the other side it has a clear gloss that is to lock and shine the product in and it also to fix it if it moves to if you need touch ups. I bought three shades which was the only three left by the way they were all gone. In order as seen in the photo above the shades i got are I,ll Call You, Kiss Fatal and Kiss me you fool. I absolutely love these lip colours I put them on and they stayed on my lips and didn’t get all over my hubby when I kissed him so it is kiss proof. I will attached some swatches for you guys. I dont know about you but i hate sticky anything on my lips but these are not sticky one bit. Ps guys when I tried to wash the off my hands and didn’t even have the lock and shine on it I just swatched it by itself it didn’t move so this has awesome lasting power. Well you enjoy these lip colours my loves and if you any questions just ask away Love Always Aliah💋 Continue reading Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colours

Motd As you can see I am a true tartelette I use my tarte BB cream to give me a nice smooth slate to work with. I do also use some drugstore brands the Maybelline Fit me foundation is so good it is great for ladies with dry skin like me. The Master Conceal is such a great Concelar and I mixed it with the NYX dark circle Concelar which has a orange  color great for any dark circles or any discoloration. The tarte After Dark Palette is heaven in a palette you can Contour Highlight and it has beautiful pigmented shadows so if you travel alot and looking for a great palette this is it. I do have a slight obsession with colourpop and this Lippie stick is life the color is called Bossy it is a nice red that goes with any outfits casual or dressy. Now the amazonian clay powder is my life it’s a all natural powder that will give you a airbrushed look. So I hope you have fun looking at this picture. Love Always Aliah💋
