Make Beauty review (with special discount code!)

Happy Spring everyone! After taking a short break from blogging, I’m back today with my review of Make Beauty. I was one of the lucky bloggers selected to review two of their products. Before I get into my review, I’d like to share  some information about the brand.

Make Beauty is a hypoallergenic beauty and skincare brand  and all their products are made in NYC. Here is a description of what this beauty company does:
“We develop products to spark your own irresistible desire to create. Professionally formulated but user friendly, every product is designed for personal experimentation –wear wet or dry, alone or layered, subtle or super-pigmented. The collections for lips,eyes, cheeks and skin offer rich formulations and rare palettes for an unconstrained range of colors, finishes and textures. Whether the look is a perfect no-makeup makeup or modern minimal alongside a more pigmented finish is entirely up to you.”

Purple Dream or Midnight Magic?

After taking a break from blogging for a few days, I decided to continue with my series of eye shadow looks from the Stila eye shadow palette and lookbook In the Moment. Also, I will be a guest at a friend’s wedding in a few days, so I thought I could experiment a bit and choose a look for the event. The first look I tried is called Purple Dream.

In the Moment

My last post was about my latest makeup purchase, the Stila eyeshadow palette In the Moment. Another fellow lifestyle blogger (Arielle – her blog is called With All My Affection) suggested I do looks with the palette. I thought it was a great idea and It just so happens that this eyeshadow palette comes with a Lookbook so I decided to  write a separate post for each look to start. Today I’m writing about the first look, which is called Wide Eyed Wonder.

I modified the look a little bit. I wanted a lighter daytime look, since I was just going out to run errands.

To get it closer to the sample picture, you need a heavier hand and you have to wet the brush. You need at least two brushes, an eyelid brush and a crease brush. Also it can look more glamorous if you apply lashes. In the pictures I’m just wearing mascara (PhysiciansFormula Organic Wear Fakeout Mascara in Ultra Black). Overall I was pleased with the look, and I did think that it made my eyes look a little bigger and wider. It’s also very easy to replicate. That’s all for today’s look. Stay tuned for the next one!

Disclosure: I purchased my own Stila palette

“Cherish the beauty of the moment” (Sarah Lucero)

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while since my last post.  I’ve been super busy and I also did some traveling (which I will post about at a later date). My post today is about one of my recent makeup purchases, an awesome eyeshadow palette from Stila, called In the Moment. First of all, I love that’s it’s purple since it’s one of my favorite colors. I tend to navigate towards mauve and purple because I think they work well with my complexion. Second, the palette comes with 10 different eyeshadows and colors, that you can mix and match or wear alone! This palette also includes a (sparkly!) purple eyeliner and a Lookbook. The Lookbook features 6 looks: Wide Eyed Wonder, Purple Dream, Sophisticated Stare, Midnight Magic, Captivating Eye and Magic Stare. I haven’t tried all the looks yet,  so far I really like Wide Eyed Wonder and Sophisticated Stare. I will give you an update once I try the other ones. Finally, as you can see in the picture, there is a quote printed on the inside of the cover, which I thought was a nice touch.  Overall, this eyeshadow palette was a good investment and I will definitely have fun creating new daytime and evening looks! Until next time!                                                           Stila Eyeshadow
