Got a new palette by Gold Label called the Mombasa Palette 😝Open this post for swatches and a review
Since I get a lot of questions on what certain makeup products are and their purpose, I just wanted to create a makeup and beauty glossary so you guys can really get an idea of what’s what. I will be going more in-depth with future posts to give you guys the tea on each type of product, my favorite recommendations and more.
The second post of this mini series will be cover products used on the eyes! The images are clickable and will take you right over to each makeup category on Sephora’s site if you’re interested in taking a look at what’s out there ♥
Fall is nearing and what better way to bring it in than with some new lipsticks If you haven’t tried any of these shades out, now is the time! I’ve noticed that a lot of people have a one size fits all mentality when it comes to lip colors but trust me, there is a shade out there for everyone.
I took the time to create a chart with different skin tones to give you guys specific recommendations for each lipstick shade, because I know when the color “peach” is thrown at you for example, you may think of just one color and completely write it off without realizing there are tons of peachy shades out there that would look amazing on you!

When it comes to concealer, there are tons of different uses. A few of them will require you to use a skin toned concealer, some will require a concealer a few shades lighter, and one will require a concealer that’s a bit darker. Find out the different uses and which shades you’ll need inside this post!
If you don’t have translucent or sheer setting powder in your makeup collection, you’re definitely missing out! There’s so many different ways to use it aside from the most popular one, which is baking.
1. Baking/Setting your concealer and foundation – Everyone has heard about baking by now, but I’m sure there are a few that aren’t sure of the purpose. Baking the areas of your face where your makeup tends to crease or where your skin tends to get oily is key to a long lasting makeup application. If you have dry skin, you honestly don’t need to bake for too long, if at all. If you have oily skin, baking for at least 3 minutes will help keep oils at bay. As far as preventing any creasing, baking underneath the eyes or simply setting the area with powder will stop your concealer from creasing and separating. If you aren’t a fan of the powdery look, pick up a setting spray such as Mac Fix+ or Mario Badescu Rose Facial Spray! It will lock everything into place and give your makeup a more natural texture.
