Products That I Have Been Loving!

Hey ladies, long time no talk! I am so sorry I have been MIA, since starting college and two jobs I have been crazy busy! I figured this would be a nice post to come back with ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are some of my favorite products I have been loving recently.

wpid-20130908_203655.jpgThe first product you see, yup I included it, Summer’s Eve Island Splash Cleansing Cloths. lol Say what you may, but if you have tried these you know they are really nice to have. They are so cheap too, only $1.99 for 16 little pouches. They are very portable, and you can just throw them in your purse! Seriously, before you scoff give em’ a go!

Next is Garnier Fructis Shine spray. Have you ever gone to a salon and they mist your hair after it is styled and your hair looks so shiny and polished and smells amazing?! Well here is the hair product, finally, that will do that too! I picked this up from Walgreens for $5 After I finish styling my hair I give it a few mists of this magic and my hair looks like it is fresh from the salon!

Next is the Michael Todd Pumpkin Face Mask. I got this from an Ipsy bag, and fell in love with it! Unfortunately it smells exactly like baby food. But, it has actually really helped the quality of my skin! I first exfoliate my skin, then apply some of this generously and let it sit for 5 minutes. Although it stings a bit, it makes your skin feel so clean and healthy afterwards.

Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, I have been loving this stuff on those days I don’t have time to wash my hair and it needs some extra volume! I got mine from Target for around $4, and it has lasted me quite a while! The smell is alright, nothing too scented, and it really does make my hair look newly washed! I suggest spraying it through your roots, letting it sit for a couple minutes, then running your fingers through your strands and working it through your hair. This is a life saver!

The Elf Eyeshadow Palette for $10, I got this in an online order a little bit ago, and have been using it constantly since. The color pay off is incredible, and the range of colors in this palette is amazing! For such a cheap price, I was so excited to get these eyeshadows! It has smoky, purple, green, neutrals, blue, green, and pink shadows included.

The Jodrana lip liner in Silver Lilac. Ever since I tried their mascara, I have been addicted to their products. Like Elf, they are super cheap and have actually really good quality makeup. These lip liners are only $3 and come in adorable colors! If you have every watched Carlibel55 she swears by these as well!

Next is the Elf Essential Perfect Eyebrow Brush. This is an incredible tool to have, I have been loving it for makeup touch ups! I simply dap it in a bit of concealer and you can fix your brows and eyeliner to look perfect, and straighten out any mistakes. I got mine for just a $1.

Next is the Plus White 5 minute speed whitening gel! I love this for whitening my teeth. I picked mine up from Bed Bath and Beyond, and it has really whitened up my teeth! In the shower I just dab some of the gel on my teeth and let it sit for ten minutes, then spit it out, and brush. After a couple uses my teeth are so much whiter than they have been in a really long time! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have found my favorite nail file! Of all time…literally. I got this from Sally’s Beauty Supply, and will never go back to any other kind of file. The grain is very heavy and can so easily file away any rough edges on your nails and shape them perfectly.

Lastly is the Spoiled nail polish in Mar-zi-panna. It is a great $1.99 polish dupe for the China Glaze polish in For Audrey. It is a perfect Tiffany blue and looks gorgeous on the nails!

Thank you so much for reading. Please let me know what your favorites are, and if you are a fan of any of my favorites! Love always Pearlsnheels โค

 

 

 

The full package: Outfit & Makeup of the day!

Here is your two in one post my friends! This morning I felt like going with some peacock feather inspired blue eyeshadow to match my top. I got this top from Marshall’s for pretty cheap, lord knows I am addicted to that store! It is literally dangerous for my wallet for me to go there! My belt is just a simple leather chest belt from Debs from my local mall. I am wearing some old jean shortay shorts :p and some simple olive green leather boots I got forever ago from Target.
image

I have a lacy white tank under my shirt to better conceal my bubbies! ;p I have a light opal necklace on. The chest belt is optional, I just think that flowy shirts tend to make me look rounder, so I like to synch my waste with a cute belt, which also makes the outfit more dressed up. Funny tip: Chest belts actually make your chest appear larger…if you are feeling a little extra something something ;Dimage

On my right hand I have an aqua blue ring on and some blue beaded bangles paired with a silver feather wrap bracelet. I got the stackable bangles from Lia Sophia and the silver feather one from Aerie.ย image

On my left hand I have an all seeing eye hamsa bracelet, a blue beaded wrap one, and a blue chain bracelet I made :p On my left hand I have the matching light opal ring on my ring finger and a chunky silver heart ring on my pointer finger. I love stacking similar colored bracelets, they add a nice touch to your ensemble.ย image

Here are my cheapo Target boots, they are the Mossimo brand. I love the olive color of these guys and the mixed leather and canvas texture. I think jeans shorts with half boots look really cute for summer and are comfy :pimage

My hair is back in a messy bun, because I was having sort of a bad hair day :/ My eyebrows are filled in and gelled into place. I have a gold and green eyeshadow in the inner corner of my eye, and a peacock feather blue shadow on my outer corner. I am wearing my Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara on my curled lashes. My lips are wearing Revlon‘s Cupcake Lip Butter with some clear gloss on top. My skin is masked with my favorite Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation in 110. ย My foundation is set with the Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder, and concealed with the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealed in light. I misted my face with Elf’s Mist & Set just to make sure my face doesn’t go anywhere :0ย image

Makeup of the day! Bold Eyebrows, Eyeliner, & Glossy Lips….HOW TO.

Hey guys, here is another makeup of the day for you! This one…I admit it is pretty intense..but if you would like to re-create it please show me, I would love to see what you guys come up with! I had a lot of fun creating this, I didn’t have any certain inspiration, I mixed a combination of makeup inspired by Mila Kunis, ย Amy Winehouse, and Angelina Jolie! Of course, I am not lucky enough to look like any of these, but I combined the effect that their makeup has; ย Angelina’s big lips, Mila’s big open eyes, and Amy’s bold cat eye. I am really happy with how it came out…and to be honest took me an hour :p Is that a normal amount of time for makeup? I decided to have bold eyes, mild lips, and skip out on the bronzer and blush, to keep from looking like I am about to join the circus.

This makeup look is built up of layers. I believe that when you layer each shadow and lip shade with a soft hand that the end result is very smokey and light, in stead of one bold shade per feature. The only bronzer I used was to lightly contour my nose, because it is the only feature that makes me self conscious, for I have a very wide-bridged nose ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ha ha, but we all have our nit picks :p

image

If you are interested in the products I used in this look and how to create it, I will list it all below:

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow on my brows! Yes, eye shadow, I have literally tried every brow kit in the world and none of them match the color of my brows! I got a little sample size of this in one of my Ipsy bags! Like this post if you love your monthly bag! And, I became addicted to it, I am definitely going to re-purchase the full eyeshadow when I run out just to use on my eyebrows! I usually apply it with the Elf Angled Studio Brush, it is really dense and perfect for angling your brows! Then I set them with the Elf clear Eyebrow gel.

wpid-IMG_20130731_155814_334.jpg

I used, Mica Cosmetics Black Gel Eyeliner, I also got in an Ipsy bag! Can you tell I am trying to use some sample products up? lol I wet my Elf angled eyeliner brush then dipped it in the gel eyeliner then drew a line up almost to the end of my eyebrow (this is how you will achieve the perfect angled cat eye for the shape of your eyes!) Let me know if you want an eyebrow tutorial as well, I will make a post, pic by pic.

I made me eyes look bigger and brighter by cutting my crease with some brown eyeshadow, you can use any kind! Then blend it out, giving your eyes the smoky look. Then use a highlighting shade, any light tans, whites, or creams will work and pop it onto your brow bone, just under your brow, the corner of your inner eye, and the very middle of you eye lid. If you have some what hooded eyelids like I do, then put your brown crease color somewhat a bit above your natural crease, and then use the brown and shade in a little bit below your natural under eye. This will make your eyes appear much larger, and open!

wpid-IMG_20130731_154347_487.jpg

wpid-IMG_20130731_154346_089.jpg

Then I used my absolutely favorite mascara, I am sure you guys are sick of this but…My Jordana Best Lash Extreme. I will never love another mascara as much as this one, if you want to read my whole blog post about it check for the link below! I applied two generous coats of this on top of my curled lashes. You can also add some falsies if your lashes aren’t very full, or if you are going out clubbing or what not. Then I used my L.A Colors Eye Crayon in Sea Shells on my waterline to make it look like my eyeballs are larger, which is a great dupe for NYX eye crayon in milk, and in my opinion works better and is cheaper!

I used a bit of the same black gel liner on my lower eye lid, but instead of using it to round line my eyes, I dragged the line out in a 130 degree angle, which made my eyes look more cat like.

On my lips, I outlined them with Jordana Lip Liner in Silver Lilac, and drew up a crease in the center of my bottom lip to give the Angelina split lip affect. Then I covered my lips with a bit of nude gloss, and finished them off the some highlighting powder on the middle of each lip, and a bit of highlighter on my cupids bow, this will make the lips appear fuller.

I finished this look off with my foundation. I find it easier to apply my eye makeup first, then my foundation, because if the eye makeup applying process leaves any fallout or smudging, it is easy to clean away then do my foundation rather than try to clean up my eyes after wards.

wpid-IMG_20130731_155233_947.jpg

I used Revlon 110 Color Stay Whipped foundation blended out on my skin with my Sonia Kashuk foundation brush, and covered any blemishes and my under eye circled with my Elf Corrective Concealer in yellow. ย Lastly, I set my foundation with my favorite facial powder (Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder in 110) and my Elf Finishing Spray so my makeup doesn’t crawl away over the night :p

Makeup Look Of The Day! Sparkly Eyes? But Not Look Like A Clown!

Hello darlings! I am back with a sparkly makeup tutorial! I woke up and felt like I wanted to rock a princess look lol. Here is a way I decided to wear sparkles nut not look like one of Beyonce’s backup dancers. The best way to pull off this look and not using too many sparkles, using a glitter liner not a loose pigment, and keeping the rest of the makeup on your face neutral. I used Sephora brand Glitter Liner, it is surprisingly cheap I think it was about $10, and it is incredible! It stays on all day, but isn’t a pain in the butt to take off later in the night. Also, use the glitter liner only in the inner corner of your eye. This is where you want the lightest makeup anyway, and light to be draw. This will open up your eyes, and make them look brighter. I used a silver and white flecked glitter as well on top of purple eyeshadow.image

The best way to use the glitter is over a base eyeshadow that complements your eyes color; my eyes are green so I sued purple. Using a glitter liner as a pose to a loose pigment is best, because loose pigments tend to leave fallout uner your eyes, makeing you look like you got barfed on by Krista from Fern Gully. Anyone remember that movie from their childhood? It is good aswell to keep your eyesbrows, cheeks, and lips clean and some what neautral if this is an everyday look, because it will bring attention to your eyes. If you paired this with a bold lip, and cheeks full of rouge, then you might look like a clown ging off to work. Keep the eyes bright and the rest simple, I only have some light eyebrow makeup and a clear gloss on my lips.

image

I also applied some purple eye shadow under my eye to unify the whole look with the purple eye shadow on top. The purple eyeshadow I used is from my Elf mini eyeshadow quad in SIlver Lining, pretty good pigment for only $1! Like if you love buying Elf’s essential brand makeup! I used my favorite mascara, Jordana Best lash extreme on my lashes, and skipped the eye liner for today, because I didn’t want to cover the eyeshadow and glitter, it would have only taken away from the look.

image

As you can see there is not a lot of glitter, it is only in the inner section of my eye lid, this look was simple and quick to do! If you try it out please post some pictures and let me know how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you guys so much for the support and reading my blog, if you enjoyed this look please click the like button, and follow my blog! There will be more makeup looks to come so please stay tuned. Love always Pearlsnheels โคย
