The Lazy Girl's Guide to Contouring & Highlighting

How to Contour for Beginners

By now, you probably have heard about the power of makeup. Makeup can really transform not just the look of someone’s face but also the shape. Yes!!! We use makeup to give our faces dimension and also appear smaller using a method called contouring. Check out the quick tutorial above to learn how to contour for beginners!

I had the opportunity to try the True Color Transforming Contour Stick used in this video and I must say that I give it an A+++. It is super pigmented, long-lasting, creamy rich formula and blends super easy!

Quick Ombre Lip Tutorial

Hi guys! I was experimenting yesterday and fell in love with this ombre lip look! Of course, I had to share! For this lip, here are the products I used:

mark. Lipclick Matte Full Color Lipstick (Siren)
mark. Lipclick Matte Full Color Lipstick (Spark)
mark. Lipclick Matte Full Color Lipstick (Quiet)

First step: Use lip liner (I used lipstick because my liner ran away)

Second step: Apply main liquid lipstick color

Third step: Apply lighter liquid lipstick in the center of your lip

I’d love to stay connected with you all! Feel free to add me:

3 Easy Steps for Beautiful Eyebrows – Updated Eyebrow Routine Using Pencil

3 Easy Steps for Beautiful Eyebrows – Updated Eyebrow Routine Using Pencil. Great eyebrow tutorial for beginners. Simple and easy. #Makeup #MakeupTutorial #Beauty #BeautyAddict #EyebrowsOnFleek

Updated Eyebrow Routine Using Pencil

Hi everyone! It’s my new eyebrow routine. Very simple and easy for anyone to follow!

Step 1: Using the Avon True Color Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner outline the shape you’d like your eyebrow to be. Yes, I’m using an eye liner instead of brow definer. Originally, I ran out of the brow definer and substituted with the eye liner. I now prefer the eye liner as it’s waterproof and darker.

Step 2: Using the same eye liner pencil use soft feather strokes to fill in the outline. If you apply with a heavy hand, the color will come in darker. It’s easier to build up than it is to take off. So use light strokes and go over if you want them darker.

 

Step 3: Clean up or cover up any loose strands using the Extra Last Concealer for a clean, precise look.

And just like that we’re done! I use this method every time I fill my brows in and they come out beautiful! Quick and easy eyebrow tutorial for beginners!

OMG! What happened to my camera and why does my face look like this?

Avon True Color Ideal Flawless Liquid Foundation and Loose Powder review. Check out the before and after!

At first I was a little embarrassed to say this and even now, I can’t believe I’m typing it but I’ve got to share this with you. Part of this is actually pretty darn funny when you think about it. As you know, I hardly get the time to get all dolled up and make an appearance but it doesn’t stop me from lathering my lashes in mascara, creating arches galore eyebrows and glossing these lips.

Tuesday, I decided to take it a step further and applied foundation. It was the next step towards becoming a glamazon but I had to make it quick. When you’re up at 5:30 a.m., rarely do your eyes and mind work at the same time.

Once I got to work, I decided to get on SnapChat and crack my daily jokes but I noticed something was off. My photos and videos looked like they had a filter on them. Nothing major but like I edited the photo with the tool to soften the skin. I thought maybe it was SnapChat’s new filter (even though I don’t use them) or built-in feature.

I decided to take pictures using my regular camera and noticed the same thing. All of my pictures looked — flawless! What the hell! I couldn’t figure it out so I decided Apple must have sent out an automatic update for the camera. I asked two of my co-workers if they noticed any difference with their cameras. One co-worker has iPhone 6 Plus and the other has iPhone 7 Plus (same as I do).

We actually pulled out our phones and did mini photo-shoots to compare the cameras. We snapped pictures of walls, bags, and anything else that was nearby. All of the pictures looked about the same but they stated they didn’t notice any difference in their camera. No one dared to take a selfie. Bad hair days and such. I was so confused that I actually updated my  Facebook status  and asked my friends if they noticed anything different with their iPhone cameras! Only one person thought the camera changed but others argued that it hadn’t.

I took another selfie without makeup and OMG! Now that’s some good stuff! Any time your foundation can convince you that your camera has been secretly updated — you know you have some good stuff. I can’t believe how amazing the coverage can be. Instead of just talking about it, I wanted to show you. All pictures are untouched and unedited. I even included a picture from today with absolutely no makeup (don’t judge me).

No makeup (ewwwww):

The best darn foundation ever (about 5 hours since applied):

16864332_1874491326099651_7451527109828409643_n16684167_1874491349432982_4331877260184599054_n16864247_1874491322766318_8586218842390866177_n

The makeup routine:

1: Cleansed with Anew Clean Refining Daily Scrub – love this stuff

2. Moisturized* with nutraeffects Balance Day Cream SPF 15 – designed for people with oily or combination skin. First time using it. Official opinion coming soon.

3. Applied Flawless Liquid Foundation – applied with beauty sponge

4. Set it with Flawless Loose Powder – just lightly dusted with large powder brush

5. Created brows with Glimmersticks Brow Definer

6. Masked the lashes in SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara

7. Puckered up with mark. Lipclick Matte Full Color Lipstick in Starlet

8. Applied blush

9. Finished it off with Makeup Setting Spray – this is the original formula, not the True Color Makeup Setting Spray. The packaging itself makes me want to scream as it looks so beautiful! Can’t wait to try it.

* Note: I skipped my MagiX Face Perfector as I wanted to try out the new mattifying moisturizer and wanted to see if it really works. I’ll try to pair both together soon and see how they work together.

Needless to say, I love it! I didn’t want to look too made up and it was perfect. You can build it to your liking and it still feels very lightweight. And the best part about all of this? It’s currently on sale for $8.99! So if you’re interested, click the pic below to pick up your bottle.

Avon Big & Multiplied Mascara Review

Thanks to my District Sales Manager, I had the opportunity of trying Avon’s new Big & Multiplied mascara before it was released to the public. Prior to this, I used the Big & False Mascara on a regular basis. As far as my lashes go, I always craved long and full lashes. My lashes are short and scarce. From a distance, you can’t even tell that I have eyelashes. It’s a shame men are blessed with the best lashes but thank goodness, women can fake it until… well…we can fake it!

The Big & Multiplied Mascara is what Avon calls the “triple threat” — designed to detangle, separate and add volume. I don’t have much issue with tangled lashes as they’re near bald but this mascara definitely delivers as promised in terms of volume. So far, this is the best Avon mascara that offers the volume that I desire. Other than Big & False, I’ve also tried the Mega Effects Mascara and SuperShock Max. Keep in mind, this is no disrespect to any of the other mascaras as I’m sure each are perfect for someone (we all have our own individual goals); however, as far as my concern, I need the most volume and best length. Though this mascara does not add any length, I am pleasantly surprised with the volume. The amount of volume clearly shows in pictures so I don’t completely fail at my attempt to pretend as though I have beautiful, flowing lashes. I took a picture with Mega Effects on one eye and Big & Multiplied on the other (not included here). As far as the pictures, the Big & Multiplied showed better in pictures but honestly, the two eyes looked the same in person. Maybe it’s the formula :/ Big & Multiplied was way more pronounced.

For the last couple of weeks, this mascara has become one of my staple products. Yes, I wear false lashes but do not have the time to apply them everyday. I find that even with just this mascara, I feel more confident.  My goal is to have my makeup done in five minutes or less. Along with this mascara, I’m able to accomplish that with the help of my Perfect Eyebrow Kit, Glimmersticks Brow Definer and MagiX Face Perfector. That’s it! Four products and my entire face is done. At any rate, I decided to do a comparison of the Big & Multiplied (2 coats) versus my bare lashes. Let me know what you think. The mascara is currently on sale for $6.99 with normal price of $9.00. To purchase, click here for the Big & Multiplied Mascara.
