Makeup Haul: Sleek Make Up

20130307-105006.jpg

I am so excited that my Sleek Makeup order came in so I wanted to quickly share some items I purchased. Sleek Makeup is a beauty company based in the UK and I’ve been wanting to try a few of their products. So I ordered their face contour kit, eyebrow pencil, and their true color lipstick called “loved up”. Their products are priced very reasonable. I spent about $18 on the three products and that included shipping and handling. This will be my first time using their products and I am excited to see the results! Check back in to see how I apply my new products, but in the meantime go shop sleekmakeup.com

Beauty Buzz: Headband Braid

Braids have been a hot hair trend, and I am totally obsessed with this headband braid. This boho chic look is a great style for messy hair days and for the warmer days to keep long out of the face. What I love most about this do is that the hair is styled with a fishtail braid rather then the traditional French or Dutch braid. If you want to learn how to achieve this look check back in for a hair tutorial!

A Belt is an easy piece to turn a simple outfit to a chic look. Now I must admit that I am usually not a belt wearer, but lately I’ve been obsessing over skinny belts.  Skinny belts are becoming my go-to –accessory because it is such an easy piece to enhance your look. Belts can easily incorporate a little color into outfit or to accentuate your waste.  What I love most about skinny belts is that you can play around with the way they can be worn. No more looping your belt the basic way! Take your skinny belt and create different loops and styles that will bring your look together.  So don’t waste your waist and go shop for the skinny belt!

Beauty Scoop- Conquering the Contour

Image

We all have areas on our body that we try to disguise or cover up. Well for me I have a nose with a bump, and undergoing painful plastic surgery is not an option for me right now.  So I have been searching for a quick fix that will give the same results. I have come across a great product to add to my beauty bag collection that will assist me in contouring my nose. Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch highlighting concealer is amazing! I have purchased this at Target in Honey 360 for only $7.44 and I must say my nose looks great! There are several different techniques depending on the look you are going for. If you are trying to soften the bump on your nose such as I am follow the steps below, and I am sure you will love your new look!

What you will need:

Either a powder or liquid makeup 2 shades darker than your complexion

Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch 2 shades lighter than your complexion (I use Honey 360)

Foundation

Finishing Powder

Concealer

 Step1.  Apply moisturizer to a clean face.

Step2.  Apply primer then foundation to the face.

Step3. Apply darker shade of foundation directly on the bump and BLEND. Be sure to blend very well since this shade will be darker than your actual complexion.

Step4. Apply your Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch on either side of bump from bridge to nostrils and blend.

Step5. Apply your finishing powder and whallah! You look great.

I will say PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!! This is definitely an art, but with time and practice you will conquer the Contour!
