Shady Saturday (KathleenLights x Colourpop)

Hey makeup lovers!

Welcome to Shady Saturday, where I may not throw shade (...maybe) but will instead be sharing my favorite shade of eye shadow, lipstick, blush, or any beauty item (basically anything that has a pigment that gives me LIFE) of the week!

Recently I have been OBSESSING over Colourpop's Super Shock Shadow in the shade KathleenLights, a bright golden copper in a pearlized finished. 

My #summergoals is to look like a sun kissed bronzed goddess who looks effortlessly put together! This pigment adds a beautiful golden warmth to the skin that I find extremely flattering on medium to deep skin tones.

I have also seen this shade swatched on various skin tones, and it is absolutely stunning and complimentary on many different people! YAAAAAS

Tip- Apply this shadow by tapping the pigment onto the eyelid with your fingertips.

*Don't forget to screw the lid on tightly, as to not dry out the formula!

 

 

Cake NOT cakey by The Ocean (NYX Cosmetics)

Summer is officially around the corner, which means it's time to bring out those summer beauty regimens. This is not a drill!!!

A huge beauty change for me in the summer, is that I ditch my foundation.  I love to look sun kissed, dewy, and effortlessly bronzed, and I finally found a product that helps me achieve EVERYTHING my little heart could dream.

Similar to beauty guru and vlogger @sonjdradeluxe who uses Gleam by Melanie Mills Body Radiance in Rose Gold ($15-$40) to create a perfectly bronzed complexion, I use NYX Cosmetic's Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator ($7.50) in Pure Gold which is a less expensive alternative.

I simply rub the product into my moisturized skin, and then I proceed to conceal and complete my makeup. The illuminator adds a great glow to my skin, and feels incredibly lightweight, which is perfect for the summer heat! 

Now enjoy your cake by the ocean without looking cakey and pick up this product!

Colourpop Snapchat Swatches

As we're all slowly starting to realize, I am a huge fanatic when it comes to ColourPop! I CAN'T even begin to tell you how excited I am for the Ultra Satin Lippies to release on February 25th for only $6!!!

Now I'm a girl that loves my Ultra Matter Lippies, but let's be real for a moment. ANYTHING ultra matte is guaranteed to have your lips feeling dry at some point. Thus, the beat face gods have answered my little beauty prayers and enters the Satin Lippie. My hope is that it has the extreme matte effect of it's sister formula, while offering a bit more moisture.

Who else is copping?!

Five Times Zendaya Slayed like a CoverGirl!

On Wednesday, the goddesses of beat faces opened the heavens as Zendaya announced to the world that she is officially the new face of CoverGirl! The announcement was declared via an Instagram video of her slaying in a range of fresh face and dynamically edgy make up looks.

To celebrate the young beauty icon's latest achievement. Here are the 5 times I personally believe that she proved herself to be a true CoverGirl!

1. The fact that she has become the unofficial face of many brow goals! (Ok... it's official!)

2. That time when she rocked locs on the red carpet, and utilized the feedback as a platform to discuss representation, and stereotypes.

3. When she owned the red carpet at the 2015 Golden Globes in Marchesa. She didn't get lost in the gown, and werked it with confidence! #BlackGirlMagic

4. How she continues to be an amazing advocate for women uplifting and empowering each other, and created this masterpiece amongst her fellow sisters.

5. When she not only spoke out on body awareness issues, but proudly accepted and embraced her curves prompting the veil of perfection to drop. Zendaya stands for women loving themselves and I am confident that this partnership with CoverGirl will give her an even bigger platform to do just that!
