Elf Cosmetics Haul!



Hello beautifuls!

So yesterday, I took a trip to Target and I finally found ELF! I always wanted to purchase something from this brand but I could never find it at any of the Target locations that are nearby me. I purchased 2 products that I really wanted to try out by their brand which is their Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia, as well as their Eyebrow Kit in Medium.



Left: E.l.f Eyebrow Kit in Medium
Right: E.l.f Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia
Each of these products by E.l.f were $3.00+tax which is really amazing being that the quality is very nice! The packaging reminds me of the NARS products and it's super affordable! I can't wait to use the blush because it's such a beautiful rosy/pink/coral shade all in one with some shimmer which is perfect for the springtime! It really reminds me of NARS Orgasm. 


Any favorite Elf products? Let me know your favorites in the comments below!

Until Next Time,

How I Remove My Makeup & The Products I Use!

Hey guys!

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted in a while and it's no one's fault but mine. I've been dealing with a lot. And by a lot, I mean a lot. I'll probably do a separate post on it or maybe a video soon, but for now, I thought I'd post about how I remove my makeup and the products I use!

Okay, so the first thing I do is address the situation. I know I'm probably making it sound like a life or death situation, but you need to address the situation! If you have a ton of eye makeup on, then you'll need more things to remove it with, capiche?

I typically remove my makeup right after school so that I don't have my makeup on all day and I can have breathable skin.

The first thing I use is the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes . These babies remove visible foundation and makeup that isn't crazy crazy waterproof. I take one wipe and remove all the surface makeup. However, it doesn't remove everything deep in your pores.

So, after I use the remover wipe, then I take my Korres Milk Proteins 3-in-1 Cleansing, Toning, and Eye-Makeup removing Emulsion with a round cotton pad and wipe it all over my face. Literally, this will show you how much makeup is still left in your pores! I love this stuff! Even though I have oily-combo skin, it doesn't make my skin super oily, it actually balances it out and makes it in fact less oily!

If I have extra eye makeup or coats and coats of waterproof eye makeup, then I would use an eye makeup remover, such as the Lancome Bi-Facial Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover or the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover  which are two amazing eye makeup removers!

After, I use my Olay Pro-X brush with a cleanser that I enjoy. Recently, that cleanser is the Neutrogena Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Scrub. Holy chicken cannolis. This stuff feels so good on my skin and smells amazing! It really keeps my skin clear I love it!

So that's my makeup removing routine, I hope it maybe gave you some times or advice on you could remove your makeup!

Until Next Time,
xoxo
