Thanks to CoverGirl and Influenster for sending me these products to create this look. Although products were sent to me all opinions are my own! Below are the products that were sent to me, I reviewed each product. Keep reading to find out why I would purchase all three items!
Stay Luscious Lipstick: This lipstick is VERY pigmented and stays on fairly well. The only thing I did not like about the lipstick was the shimmer in the undertone. I prefer matter lipsticks, if you do not mind your lipstick not being matte then that should not be a problem for you. ALSO, this lipstick is moisturizing and does not apply dry which is the upside to the lipstick not being matte. Overall, I love the lipstick and I would purchase different colors to achieve a non matte look!
False Lash: Lately, I have been looking for a good drug store mascara. This mascara adds volume to your lashes. The brush on the mascara is very small which makes it easy to apply with no mess left behind. My lashes are very short; so it did add length.
Natural Hue Foundation: This foundation is great drug store affordable foundation. This foundation can be used as a everyday foundation because it is light and adds great coverage. I applied it with a beauty blender and it blended well into my skin and match almost perfectly. This product gives me a natural glow and who does not love a glow! :) They have many different shades, check it out on COVERGIRL.COM
I had fun creating this minimalist look, I did not add any additional highlight or contouring, etc.. All products used were products sent to me in the #VOXBOX.
The links for the products are above, click on the product name! Below is a picture of me later in the day with the foundation and mascara still on! :) Thank you for reading beauty! Keep a look out for more product reviews and upcoming fashion blogs this Summer!!
Hello! It's spring, my favorite time of the year. Finding outfits can be hard when transitioning seasons. I put together a few of my wardrobe favorites and created a few outfits. Check them out below! Outfit details will be updated soon*
We've all experienced it, late nights full face of make up and way too tired to wipe it off. We know it's not the best idea but we do it anyway because we're too lazy. I've been there but I've trained myself to wipe it off to avoid the effects of long-term skin damage in the future.
Leaving make-up on at night can cause problems with the skin that we all don't want. Make-up can clog your pores and lead to terrible break-outs that we're always trying to avoid. Also the build up of make-up transfers onto your pillow. Let's be real...No one wants a dirty pillow, pillows already hold enough bacteria but adding the make-up residue is not any better. Each time you decide to sleep in your make-up your pores become more clogged. These can cause long-term damage of the skin and unwanted breakouts.
Ways that I helped myself to create the habit of wiping off my make-up daily and after long nights are by making the process simple and quick! Here's a few tips that has helped me along the way!

During the show, Tamar expressed how she doesn't have advice for her son when it comes to bullying, she instantly broke into tears exclaiming how she is still dealing with bullying today. Its sad to say as humans sometimes we can be the most cruel and judgmental beings. Social media allows for people to bully others without having to deal with the consequences. Often times as I scroll through my timeline or look in a celebrity comments on Instagram there's negative comments. I often think to myself "Wow.. do people really have the time to sit and be so negative?". Clearly they do, which is sad and that's why seeing these women address the issue on national television is so heart-warming. The issue hits close to home for the ladies on The Real and I'm sure the rest of us can relate as well.
As women it's time to start uplifting each other and encouraging each other. Being judgmental and negative will not help you advance or no one else. We all have insecurities and things we are dealing with and that's why having the support from others will help us overcome these things.
Lastly, if you or anyone else you may know is experiencing bullying do not stay silent. Tell others around you to get support. Below I placed a link to stopbullying.gov, check it out and get informed on cyber bullying. Also check out the clip from The Real below.
