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.

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 Aerieimage

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. 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.  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 :0 image

Makeup of the Day: Gray Smoke show!

Hello my makeup beauties!  Here is another makeup of the day! This time…it is a smoke show! I love smokey eye makeup, and I was feeling a little edgy today! :0 I decided to go with a more subtle smokey eyes, that updated my makeup look a bit. I feel like no one ever rocks the smokey eye anymore, and it has gotten’ a bit old. Funny thing is, whenever I wear a smokey eye I always get the most comments on my makeup.

You can create this look with four colored shadows. I do not believe it is important to include exactly what products I used, because you can re-create this look with any makeup palettes you have lying around! If you really want to know, I used mostly Wet n’ Wild and Elf eyeshadows. You need one skin toned or white eyeshadow for highlighting your brow bone and inner corner. You need a base medium toned brown. BROWN YOU SAY? Yes! Using a light brown to define your crease, not too intensely though, will mix beautifully with the light cray you apply to the top of your eyelid. Using a bit of soft brown warms up your eye look, and takes away some of the harsh intensity brought with a smokey eye. After applying a shimmery gray all over the to of your lid, follow with a black just to the corner of your eye. You can take this darkest shadow and bring it up and a cat eye shape just as I have done in the picture above.

The key to a successful smokey eye is blending! Grab a fluffy brush and go to town my friends! Using the soft brush, clean up the look using windshield whipper motions and blend out your highlight, crease brown, black outer corner, and gray lid. When there are no more harsh lines left, create a small cat eye with liquid black eyeliner, I used my Revlon one. Then I finished the look by curling my lashes and applying two generous coats of black mascara. If you want to further intensify this look if you are going out somewhere special you can do up your eyebrows, and ass some pink gloss on your lips as I have done! As well tighten your top eyelids with a black coal eyeliner and the bottom outer rim of your eyes.

On my skin I am wearing some Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation and my Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder.

Seal the whole look in with a facial setting spray and you are good to go for the night! Hope you guys enjoyed my smokey eye, and please like if you want to see more makeup of the day posts! 🙂 Please follow me for more good stuff and leave me some comments with any future post suggestions or makeup looks I could try out and post about! 🙂

Thanks for reading and the support! Love Pearlsnheels ❤

P.S I am thinking of creating a post on how to apply makeup to pale skin, since it has taken’ me a while to get used to mine! lol Let me know if this sounds interesting to you?! 🙂

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation Review + Pictures!

Hey guys I thought it would be nice to write this review on a foundation I have been loving recently! I am someone that could buy a million foundations before I am satisfied. I have such a fair skin tone, that is yellow toned not pink, that it is very hard for me to find the perfect shade for my skin. The only foundation that has the greatest selection of shades I have found is the Loreal True Match liquid foundation. This is an amazing foundation, and matches my pasty skin but is too light coverage. My skin is very oily, red patches, acne scars, and pimple prone, so I need the heavy duty kind of stuff! lol

wpid-IMG_20130807_071832_544.jpg

So upon looking for an amazing full coverage foundation, I stumbled upon the Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation! Everyone here and on Youtube has been raving non stop about this foundation, but I was skeptical. When I went to CVS to check it out, they only had 5 shades. I was very put off and wasn’t sure if it was worth spending $14 on. But thinking about it more I went back to Bed Bath and Beyond, you all know by now I love that place! I used some coupons and got it a little cheaper for $8 on sale. I figured, if it is a total flop I wasn’t spending too much money, and I really wanted to give it a chance.

wpid-IMG_20130807_071819_788.jpg

I purchased the lightest shade they have in 110, and to my surprise it matches my skin tone perfectly. When looking at the product in the jar it first looked too orange and pink toned. But since the foundation is whipped, it blends in with your skin tone perfectly! I was very shocked and happy at the same time! So if they do not carry this foundation is a shade that is light enough for you or dark enough, give the color closest to your skin tone a try! The shades they do provide hoestly can be made to blend in with any color pigmented skin.

wpid-IMG_20130807_071843_148.jpg

wpid-IMG_20130807_072030_119.jpg

The nice thing about this foundation is that it is not heavy, cake, drying, or greasy and it is still definitly full coverage! This is the amazing part, if you have dry skin make sure to use a lotion before hand, and if you are oily then make sure to use a primer and set with a loose powder. I use lotion first thing, then apply primer, then use my flat top kabuki brush from Sonia Kashuk and work the foundation into my skin, then finish with my pressed powder from Maybelline in Fit Me 110.

wpid-IMG_20130807_072006_719.jpg

Most people on Youtube swear by using this product with a beauty blender. Which is great and is a good idea if you have this foundation to try out, if you prefer using beauty blenders. However, since I want my foundation to be very full coverage I prefer to use a foundation brush, instead of losing the product to the sponges when in use.  Especially this foundation brush works really well with the foundaiton, and I picked it up at Target for $15. I just put a q-tip (for sanitary reasons) in the jar and dab little dots all over my face where I need the foundation. Then I go in with the brush and blend the product out. At first if this layer does not cover everything that you hoped it would, you can go back in with a little more product, and the whipped foundation is so light it will not cake up and is very build able!

The long wear factor is incredible. Most products who claim to be 24 hour coverage, most times are a joke to me when I hear it, and do not take these products seriously. Most products claiming to have this kind of lasting power, will last up to 8 hours then melt off or before that time, and look runny by the end of the night, especially with greasier skin. BUT THIS FOUNDATION, holy cow! I was so impressed when I first tried it out, wore it out, never washed it off that night (because I wanted to test its’ true lasting power. I know you are thinking ew…you didn’t wash your makeup off at night? RIght? But, for real when I woke up that morning, after applying it the previous morning at ten o’ clock, my facial foundation looked just as amazing, soft, dewy, and covered as it did when I first applied it.

This foundation because of its’ lasting abilities I would say is amazing for beach days, because it won’t wear off in the high heat, it also remains perfect looking while sweating and working out at the gym. This would be great for a wedding or party, when you don’t want your makeup to go anywhere.

The only cons I will say, to be honest, do not affect my feelings about this foundation much. One con is the packaging. Although I love that it is in a nice high quality glass jar, the heaviness of the product makes it difficult to travel with. The shape of the jar is very bulky and after two weeks the inside of the cap broke, and the jar doesn’t close all the way. If I travel I take a small sample of the foundation now instead of the jar. This would be so much better if it was in a pump bottle, because not only is it heavy and bulky it is also unsanitary when it comes to dipping your brushes or fingers into it during application. This can also lead to it being messy.

Besides those cons, and the lack of shades they carry, all in all, this is one of my favorite foundations easily! I almost like it more than my Kat Von D foundation from Sephora, Because this is so much more easily blended and looks amazing all day and night long. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and for most skin types. This is a great product to have in your collection for days where you want your skin to look flawless, and last a very long time with out having to re-apply.

I hope you guys enjoyed this type of makeup review, if you did please LIKE and remember to FOlLOW me for some more good stuff to come! Thanks you so much for reading, I appreciate the support!

Shopping trip! Wanna’ see what I got? Random haul

Ello! This is sort of a random shopping haul, but it all started from me doing what I always do when I got to a place like Target, Walmart, or Bed Bath and Beyond…I say “Oh I am just running in to pick up one thing..” $50 later…Ha ha, does that ever happen to you guys? I find myself mindlessly trolling the makeup, hair, and clothes sections and by the time that I am done I have checked out with way more than I ever intended to buy!

This, was definitely one of those trips! Here are just some of the products that I picked up from mostly Bed Bath and Beyond and One from Target. It is funny, you wouldn’t think Bed Bath and Beyond would have amazing beauty products for the cheapest I have found, including Walmart, but it really does! I love that store, and they always have what I am looking for, for a good price, and give you a ton of coupons!

Here are the things that I picked up form there, they are random, but all things I needed or wanted to try out!

Let me know if you guys would like a review of any of these products, or if you have already tried them what you think of them, are they good or bad?

Firstly, I picked up this Nail Repair Nail polish. I picked this up because, without acrylics I am always growing my nails out nice and long then they catch on something and painfully rip half way through the nail! And I basically consider crying myself to sleep because it is like DO I CUT THE NAIL? DO I WAIT FOR IT TO CATCH AGAIN AND END MY DAYS?! Finally, I have found something to aid my nail suffering, wish me luck!

On the right is the Sudden CHange under eye firming serum. I know, I know I am not no 70 years of age, and am only 20, but hay sometimes I get some nasty under eye bags so girls gotta try somethin’!  Apparently from reading the packaging you dab some of this magic under your eyes (onto the bags) and they instantly firm up and look like your young again! Hmmm…certainly caught my interest!

Here I have some Whitening Listerine mouth wash, pretty boring I know…But I LOVE COFEE, and there is no way of avoiding it or the stains it leaves on my pearly whites. SO maybe this will be the answer to my prayers, or maybe I will not last a minute and spit this gross tasting concoction into the sink after 6 second.

On the right, are two products The SImple brand eye makeup remover, and the Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo.  I, admit I have already tried the Simple brand makeup remover, and at first I was like WT*. I though I had waisted my money, this was the only product I picked up from Target, and was so excited to try out. I even got the idea form a fellow blogger, and when I first used it, I was basically ready to return it. Little did I know I was not using it to the best of its’ abilities. At first I used it by squirting some onto a tissue, then toilet paper and trying to wipe away a night of smeared mascara and eyeliner. BIG NO NO, there was some eyelashes lost that day 😥 And it did nothing but cause pain, irritation, and money lost. But, I had an epiphany and tried it on a cotton ball! Whew baby, momma knows! You just have to soak a cotton ball, not pad, and gently let it sit on your eye for a couple of seconds then work the makeup off slowly in a massaging motion. It looks as if I had virgin skin never touched by makeup before in its’ life. This stuff has changed my makeup removing routine, and I am very thankful that I gave it another chance!

As for the shampoo, I am really excited to try this one out, it was also suggested to me! Mint or tingling shampoos are said to cause scalp follicle stimulation, thus producing faster hair growth, who knows? It was only three dollars at Trader Joe’s, so I figure if it does nothing it is not a total loss! I like that the shampoo is cheap, accessible, is natural (no sulphates or parobens), and is a decent sized product amaount. The shampoo doesn’t have that harsh tea tree smell, it smells more like minty tooth paste, and actually smells very fresh and clean! I am excited to see how I make out with it.

Here is two shots of the one jar of Revlon Color Stay whipped Foundation, in 110 Ivory. This is the lightest shade they had which I was sad about, because I am so fair I basically need Bella Swan Vampire White in order for the makeup to match my skin tone. This caught my eye, it was only $10 which it usually can get up to $14 at other places I have seen it sold, and I used a coupon!  I was interested in trying this foundation out because of all the rave reviews I watched about this on Youtube. if you guys have tried this, give me a shout out and let me know if it is magic in a jar or a total fail on Revlon’s part.

Next, I have the Johnsons’ Baby Oil. No I do not have an infant, but someone once told me that if you drag a bit of this in the center of your leg, starting from your thigh down to your ankle, it will elongate your leg and add a slimming effect. Pretty cool, right? Maybe I will just look like my legs could grease a pan but we will see!

On the right I have some Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. I got this in the travel/sample size, because my current facial lotion (Nutrogena Oil Free Facial Lotion) has ran out, and I was not totally happy with it. That facial moisturizer actually made my skin oilier! Like so oily you could see my cheek shine from out in space. So once it ran out I decided to switch my game up and try the all so bragged about Cetaiphil. Hopefully this will be my dream product and moisturize my skin, but not leave it dripping with oil.

The next two are very random products. The one on the left, obviously a mini spray bottle. A PINK ONE. Since it is summer again, and I love scrunching my hair, but never have a spray bottle, and end up putting my head under the sink, I thought this was something essential to have, for scrunching my hair and sleek Kim Kardashian wanna-be high pony tails.

On the right is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter for stretch marks on Prego ladies. Let’s just say MR. PALMER not only do pregnant women have stretch marks. I have some from, yo-yoing my weight, growing, ect. Needless to say, I have some battle wounds that I would like to work on getting rid of and have heard amazing things about this from my sister, who is actually pregnant and working to prevent tiger scratches on her baby bump! The smell is very pungent with cocoa, but hay smells like it is going to work! Fingers crossed!….and toes, and eyes! :0

wpid-IMG_20130716_115356_344.jpg

Lastly, I just have some boring hair clips. But, hay! I told you this was a random haul, and I just thought these little guys are so cute; sparkly ones, lace, and metalic. These will be great on no wash hair days, and when I don’t feel like dealing with my strands and just want to throw them back in a simple up  do.
