Makeup for travel

Makeup for travel

Hello Ladies!! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve written. That means I had a long Week! Getting back to the school routine has me exhausted. And I forgot how much more laundry we use during school days! The boys are transitioning so good.

The next couple weekends and weeks are going to be a little busy. I leave for my trip in a month. I still need a few things for my trip. And some appointments to get to before.  I’m pretty excited, I booked my very first spray tan. I will share once I’ve done it. If this was just a more mommy getaway trip I would be doing less. But we are actually going for a wedding. So I want to make sure I’m prepared and groomed, Lol!

So with that said, Makeup! So like I said if this was more of a let mom getaway to R&R, I probably wouldn’t even take much makeup or if any. But we are going for a wedding so I will need makeup. But for some reason whenever we’ve gone to Vegas or short trips I always over pack makeup. Why? I have no clue. I’m trying to keep my packing to carry-ons only. I’d rather take an extra pair of shoes than more makeup.

Besides my face routine items, This is pretty much all I plan to take with me. First my face prep. Since will be traveling by airplane I know my skin will be so dry. So an exfoliate and Summer Fridays jet lag mask is a must. The exfoliate besides my normal wash will be much-needed. I know I will get dry skin. The Jet lag mask is fantastic So that’s definitely coming. Which Summer Fridays just released an exfoliate! I’m hoping to get my hands on that one before I leave. SPF for sure! We are traveling at night but will be arriving in Punta Cana in the am, so I will need this with me. I also forgot to picture my Mario Badescu rose water spray, that will definitely be with me.

For sure I’ll be taking my traveling light mirror. If I’m getting ready once the sun goes down hotel lighting is horrible, So this comes in handy. My brushes I always pack in this brush bag. It’s perfect and the makeup brushes don’t get smashed. I’ll be bringing two eyeshadow palettes. Better look in next pic.

So I’m a total neutral more bronzy makeup lover. These are my favorites and you can do so many looks with just these two eyeshadow palettes, Colourpop is still available, my Mario Palette isn’t. My favorite bronzer at the moment will be coming. And since I’m trying to keep packing to a minimal. I love this highlighter/blush duo from Becca cosmetics, Mine pictured is not available anymore but this looks even better! The blush is pretty with any bronzy look and I also like wearing just my bronzer if I’m going for a more natural look instead of blush.

These are a few other items I will be bringing as well. I love liquid highlighter and this one from Sephora is my favorite. Can’t forget a tinted moisturizer. Lately I’ve been just wearing this and no foundation. Gotta have the brow precise to fill in my eyebrows. Some lose highlighter dust will be fun for some added highlight with swimsuits. Can’t forget some fun color lips. I have eyelashes extensions so I’m planning on adding some tinted moisturizer, some highlight and a pop of color on my lips. And done!

I couldn’t find my exact makeup traveling bag but it’s pretty much like this one. You open it up and it has two sides with zipper openings and fits quite a bit of stuff and will fit perfectly in my carry on bag!

Well that’s it! Let’s hope I stick to my plan, LOL! My goal is to pack light, fingers crossed! Hope you all enjoyed this post. Till next post!

Tatcha water cream review

Tatcha water cream review

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. Can we just take a moment to breathe before we have to start wrapping Christmas gifts ,LOL! Wow I can’t believe it. I walked into Target yesterday morning and they don’t mess around. The Halloween stuff was cleared out or 70% off. And the lovely target workers were all busy putting out all the Christmas stuff . And yes I was that crazy lady in the aisles trying to get first dibs on some stuff! Can’t wait to share with you all. So this week has been pretty mellow. I mean besides my usual mommy load. Next week I’m pretty excited It’s almost time for My baby Breaker’s birthday. On the blog next week I’ll be sharing my not so easy pregnancy story with you all. So stay tuned!

Today’s Post is finally my Tatcha the water cream review. If you are all up on the beauty community like I am. You will know this cream. So at first I was very hesitant to purchase this cream. First the price and the fact that I’ve never used Tatcha products. I know most high-end creams can be pretty expensive. This one is $68. So pretty much average price for this type of brand.

I’ve been using this cream for a little over a month now. So I feel pretty confident to give you a good review. First of all I didn’t read before I purchased that it stated, Normal to oily skin. I’m usually Normal to dry skin. With that I thought oh great. But I had already used it about 3 times before I noticed. At first I started using it for night-time. The consistency is very light and when you put the cream on your face, it seriously feels like you just gave your face a drink of water. Totally, not even lying. I don’t rub it in crazy, I dab it on very lightly all over and go to bed. In the morning my skin feels so soft and looks so hydrated. After about 2 weeks I started using it before applying makeup for the day. It does not have SPF so make sure if you do this you also add an SPF. I absolutely love how it feels under makeup. I’m in my late 30’s so any kind of hydration I can give my skin I do.

Improvements on what I’ve noticed since using this cream. My pores have really reduced. I mean this is one of the things I have noticed more in my aging skin. And it really reduced the appearance of larger pores. I’m going to say I have never had bad skin, You can say it’s hereditary. My 84-year-old grandma has gorgeous skin and my 60-year-old mom does too. So I was blessed with better skin. But like everyone else as we age so does our skin. I’ve also noticed my skin looking more plumped and hydrated. My skin can get dry patches depending on weather. So far I haven’t had any.

So with this all said, I would very much recommend this cream! I think it’s worth the money and I’m very happy with the way my skin looks. Hope this helps out if you were interested or curious about this cream! They also have a lot of other nice products. I will need to try some more soon! Hope you lovely ladies have a fantastic rest of the week and a fabulous weekend! Till next post.

My 10-minute makeup routine

My 10-minute makeup routine

 

Hello Ladies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was very nice spent with family. Today I wanted to share my go to no-makeup look, Lol! This is my go to when I’m running errands during the week and I have about 10 minutes to look like a human. I’m no makeup professional, So for me skin care is most important. I probably wear makeup 2-3 times a week so having nice skin helps. That’s why I really maintain a healthy skin regimen. I’ll walk you all through what I do to get a healthy looking no-makeup look. This look I use no foundation!

IMG_1762

1st: I wash my face and moisturize with face lotion that has an SPF.

2nd: I spray my face with my favorite Mario Badescu rose-water spray and add some Mac essential oil this may not be for everyone so it’s just an extra step since my face is more dry.

3rd: Add some primer to give your skin a smooth finish. I use smash box hydrating primer, I love it!

4th: fill in my thin eyebrows, I talked about my favorite eyebrow pencil in my favorites under $20 post.

5th: Conceal these Mama bags and any redness I may have, which is mostly around my nose. I’m loving Nars soft matte complete concealer I use medium 1 custard. It’s my favorite at the moment. I do set any areas I conceal.

6th: I’m a little extra for these next steps I’ll do a light nose contour, I like the Anastasia Beverly hills stick foundation in Fawn. I also add a little liquid highlight on my cheekbones and tip of my nose!

7th: I use a little bronzer and blush for this look I like to use NARS laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush. I’ll also brush a little blush on my nose to look sun-kissed.

8th: Add a little mascara, My favorite is benefits roller lash.

9th: Add your favorite lip gloss or lip stick. I normally top my lips with a clear gloss or Jeffrey star liquid lip in Celebrity skin.

10th: Grab your bag and run your errands!

Hope you lovely ladies have a great week!
