BEST concealer by far!

Coastscents camo quad concealer: I haven't had anything better than this concealer. It has great coverage no actually I mean the best coverage. I had a gross red pimple that I popped and the concealer made it disappear. COMPLETELY! No one knew a thing. The best part about this is that it was only about $8 bucks. A lot of people say that they don't usually use the white, but I like to use that for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes for a brighter look. There is light, medium and dark to choose form. My color is more of a medium so that is what I have. I'm running out as you can see, so I gotta buy more.

Can't live without!

1. Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder: I'm not kidding when I say miracle worker. This stuff is the best. It sets everything and buffers your look with a flawless finish.

2. Coastal Scent's Bronzer Brush: I bought this brush online (I'm pretty sure a lot of you already know what that is ;D) It was on sale for like $8 but regular price was I think $20. This brush is really really good. I use it to put on my Dream Matte Powder. It's a perfect pair. I swear they are lovers.

3. L'Oreals Magic Base: I must admit I don't have perfect skin like a lot of us, but we do like to make everyone else think we do. This is the stuff for that. If you have problem areas on your face such as bumps, uneven skin tone, this is a pretty good way to cover them. $11

4. Mac's Blacktrack Gel Liner: Even though it dries out a bit, I still love it because is lasts ALL DAY! No joke. When it gets too dry here's a trick. Add a few drops of water or eye drops and use a blow dyer to melt. $16.50

5. Mac Blush: Lasting power is excellent. Period. I especially love their peachy colors. $14

6. Mac's Studio Fix Spray: If you don't have this product, I suggest you go straight to your local Mac store or Macys and pick it up. You'll know why once you try it. $18

7. No.7 lip shine gloss: I love this color! It's the pinkest color they have. I have a olivey medium tan skin tone and so this gloss is just perfect against my color. It also is a great gloss that is not too sticky and it last pretty long with no white streaking. I LOVE IT! $8 Target stores and online.

My Makeup Setup

Usually I'm in a rush in the morning and so I wanted something that will keep my makeup together and is easily accessible. I just bought this makeup organization tray at Target for only $13 bucks. It sits on my bathroom counter and I love it!

Bird's eye view. HA!

My current face situation

I have been noticing that there is a lot of little bumps on my face lately. I don't know if it has to do with the weather. It is getting a bit warm already. Yesterday it was 8o degrees out there! But yeah, they are not pimples or maybe they are little tiny pimples. They are not red or anything they are just like tiny bumps. Anyone have any clue as to what it could be?

L'Oreal's Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I just bought this yesterday and I tried it this morning before putting on my foundation. It looks like a thick fluff and when you rub it with your fingers it has a velvet texture. It glides very smooth on your face. On my face I tend to have red spots around my cheeks and dryness around my nose and T-zone. After putting on this primer my face seem less red. This is good because you don't have to use as much foundation. The bumps and the dryness on my face seemed like they were buffered out. I say it was a pretty good product. It's not a miracle worker, but it does help. After coming home from work after 6 hours my face still had that matte finish and still had the smoothed out look. I would recommend getting this product for a mild buffering of your face but don't depend on it to work magic. For a drugstore product it does its job and its cheap. The price is about $10.99 at CVS and they even had a sale of buy 1 and get 2nd 50% off. Pretty good deal. Try it out I think most would like it.

Since I can remember...

I have always loved makeup hence the name. Haha Anyways I like to mix it up with my makeup, trying new blends with different colors. I've always been attracted to colors. It can make or break your face, your outfit, your style period. Colors are key and it tells a lot about yourself. I believe that the makeup you wear expresses in a way the way you feel just like a painting would. To be a makeup artist you have to an artist period. I truly believe that. So in this blog I will have some of my makeup examples posted and also some of my reviews about different kinds of makeup.
Hope you have fun with them and hopefully it can help you become more creative! Thanks guys for tuning in!
