Green Makeup | Products

Hi guys! I know it’s been about a week since my last post, I am sorry ! I have honestly been lazy and enjoying my days off. But I have been posting on my instagram which is beautytime101dc if you haven’t checked it out.

Since we’re in the month of March I decided to show you some of the green products I have in my collection it’s not much but I really hope you enjoy! And I also found out I don’t use the products I am about to show you that often so made me realize that I should try new and different things.

So the first product is a press powder from Covergirl which the product itself is not exactly green but the package is. The color does not exactly match me but I do use it to bronze my face. I feel its a really great powder and affordable too.

Another product I have for the face is this correcting palette wheel from Wet n wild. It does have other colors but it has a green one and its a color I use the most. The green color is to correct the red spots and having acne marks this baby really helps me. This is also a drugstore product.

I only included a shadow because the other ones are in palettes and this is a single one. It’s from MAC and it’s called bottle green. I really wanted a color I didn’t own when I ordered it and I felt like it was a gorgeous color for fall and winter. It’s pigmented and around $6.

Two nail polishes one is matte and from pure ice in the color wild thing. I don’t really do my own nails but sometimes I like colorful nails for the summer and so I have this bright green.
The other one is a glitter I usually use it in the fall and winter since it is a little darker. its from sinful colors and I think they are one of the best drug store nail polishes ever, and the color is in call you later.

This is a product that has been in my collection and i still haven’t used but I am thinking of using it for Friday which is St. Patrick’s day or for spring and summer since it’s around the corner. So this is a green mascara from Hard Candy and its called lush green.

And the last item is a liquid lipstick from Colourpop in Mr.G and I haven’t worn it yet. I bought it a couple of months ago and I love all color lipsticks but I didn’t know when or how to wear it but its technically still winter so I might wear it !

Hope you enjoyed ❤ didi

Planning a Party? | Party Tips

Hi loves, hope you are having a wonderful night. I am almost done with the week…just TWO more days for me. I am feeling actually tired already believe it or not!

I have been posting new things on my Spanish blog, if you haven’t read it yet, here’s the link.

I love being creative like I have mentioned before. I am usually the one who goes online and searches for ideas for themes, decor ideas, etc. In about a week we will be having a party which will be a Harley Davidson theme and in a couple of months I will be having a birthday party for my little cousin who will be turning 4 in June and it will be a Minions Hawaiian party.

I have actually thought about having my own business where I create party decorations or just be like a party planner.

1

I want to share tips and take you along my journey on planning a party, so this will be party one.

So the first thing I do is depending on the age of the person we are having the party for I search. I like to do a little research and have options. Its usually my mom and me when we plan for a party. I usually search on Pinterest or right on Google.

You also want to think about when will it be(season) and depending on that you can choose the food and party favors to match.
I like to stay organized more if its a bigger party you can get templates of checklists that will help you. Also if your having it inside or out, where in your back yard or at a bouquet.

And start thinking about how big your party will be and who you will invite.

I feel these are the first few steps when planning the party. If you are doing like a kids party I suggest having around 3-2 months in advance to plan and have everything you have in mind. If its something bigger like a wedding I suggest a year in advance or preferred time.

I usually think about food after I find out when and where the party will be at. So it can all coordinate. For example both parties will be held at my house and for the Harley Davidson party we will be having Hot Dogs and live music. For the Minion one we will be having like sea food, ceviche and maybe chicken salad fresh foods since it will be HOT!


RUNDOWN…

  1. Who is the party for…
  2. Think about season/date
  3. Search for theme ideas
  4. How many people
  5. Food/drinks/ Party favors

 

I did some crafts for the Harley party that I will be showing in the part two. So stay tune ! ❤

February Favorites | Beauty

Hi good night !
I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend tomorrow is Monday but it will be a great day. Since March is around the corner I decided to dedicate the beauty products I loved in February. I have only a few because I basically still love and use the ones from January so I saw no point of adding them for this month but if you missed it you can read it here.

So these are a few more I love, hopefully next month I find new products I love that I can share with you guys.

I have been using them ever since I got them which are the Kylie Cosmetics lip products I actually got a matte mini but I misplaced it oops. I like that they are gloss but not sticky…I usually just use mattes so it’s nice to wear a different finish. These are in the color Exposed and Literally(mini).

I also got the mini palette from the Valentines Collection in colors love letter and baby. Baby is a really pretty coral pink color which is perfect for coming up seasons and love letter is like a gold shimmer which is to die for and perfect to highlight on the inner corner of the eye. They are pigmented and worth the price !

This mascara I got because of James Charles the Cover Boy, I loved the idea of having a guy as a cover boy, I really like seeing guys doing makeup like Manny MUA which is my fav because they bring something different and fun.
I like the formula better than the brush because it hold my lashes a bit more than others and I really like it for my bottom lashes.

This product I have repurchased for the second time. One of the best concealer, and really affordable. It’s full coverage I like it to clean up my brows when I fill them in or to cover my acne marks or under eye. I have even used it as a base for bright shadows and it works good.

And last I really really like this foundation this is actually the high end foundation I have at the moment I usually have a drugstore for everyday and a higher end for weekends going out, partys, or just whenever I want more coverage. It’s waterproof, full coverage, and matte everything I look in a foundation. I don’t use it that much because I use my cover girl daily but I LOVE this one !

hope you enjoyed, ❤ didi

ps. I am working on a project which I would soon tell !

Growing up | jounaling

Hi guys happy Wednesday !
Hope you guys are having a wonderful day, today I returned to work after a week of vacation.

So for tonight I decided to sit down and just write. I have always been the type of person who likes to write. You know its either the person who loves Math or English…I was always the English type but I like more free writing where grammar and rules are not important.

g1

For today I wanted to write about growing up. Like seriously when did I grew up? I think about it more lately. I think more about my future, I have bills, responsibilities, other things to buy other than clothes and makeup how I use to.

I think about marriage, kids, birth control, my future business, my relationship with my boyfriend, and how in two years I’ll be planning my little sisters quinceanera.

WOW time flies. But I decided to live life. It sounds weird because every single day we live life but I mean wake up with a smile not grumpy, being grateful for he little things, having adventures…something that I really want to do is travel. I want to see the world, Paris, Italy, London, Rome, New York, Miami, the Mississippi River, Los Cabos, Canada, Hawaii, etc, etc ! ❤ Just writing about them makes me all excited.

I feel beyond grateful with the life I have and what I went through as a kid which was not easy it wasn’t the worst but it was hard for me. My parents divorce, my grandpa passing away, trying to fit in, being insecure was a big part.

Growing up does not have to be all bad, we just need to accept that we have more responsibilities, think about doing something twice before doing, and always think about the consequences it might bring our future.

I love doing these types of posts, not only am I interested in fashion and makeup but I love journalism I feel like Carrie Bradshaw(from Sex in the City). I hope you guys enjoy them too as much as I like writing them, it inspires and distresses me I like to write as in therapy. I totally recommend it !

If you enjoyed this or like personal posts feel free to let me know or like depending on the results I’ll make more.

Good night! ❤ didi

Highlighter Reviews!

Hi guys, hope you are having a great day. It’s Thursday so almost the weekend is here.

So I wanted to review and share with you the 3 highlighters I have in my makeup collection, I usually use two more but it depends on the look or day since they are different.

hl1

There are two drugstore highlighters and one higher end. I use mostly the JCat and L’oreal one the most. I tend to use the Becca x Jacklyn Hill one less but I use it more for special occasions or combine it with the JCat one.

hl2

 

The first one I got was the L’oreal one which I got from my local Walmart about $12 it suppose to be a highlighter and blush.I was expecting more out of it to be honest, but I do really like it for a inner eye glow and also in the cupids bow. Not so much for the cheeks I find that in that area it does looks chalky which is not cute. And I tend using more the side colors more than the pink ones.

The packaging is kinda cute with the rose gold, and I like how it looks just wish the formula was better

hl4

 

The pricey one I bought was the Becca x Jacklyn Hill ‘Champagne Pop’ I saw reviews and a lot of rave so I had to try it out. This products retails for $39 and I got mine at Sephora. I really was debating if I should get it or not. I seriously walked around Sephora for about 30min. At the end I decided to take it with me. I like it, it has a really pretty shimmer to it and its not chalky it really a natural glow.

.I like the quality and package of this product I feel you are getting what you payed for.

hl5

 

The last product is the most recent highlighter I bought which was in December. It’s from JCat and I got mine a local clothing store where I live for only $6.99 and its my favorite one so far ! I love that its so pigmented and you can layer to mae it look more glow or go with something more settle. I totally recommend it.

hl3

All the shades I have are different so it works as well whenever I want to change it up. What is your favorite highlight or which one do you recommend me to use next?

Charismastar | Beauty Guru 

Hi guys I wanted to do something different and share with you guys beauty gurus that inspire me. If I’m not on Netflix or preparing my next blogs on here I am watching youtube videos. 

One of my favorite youtubers is Charis Lincoln. I found her channel because I would watch Talia Joyce(RIP) volgs and one day she was watching a video and she was crying and saying that it was beautiful she mentioned it was Charis love story. I decided to watch it and find out. Watching that video changed my life, and that video is one of my favorite ! 

Charis inspired me, made me feel beautiful again I found her when I was going through a really bad break up. Seriously her words are really inspirational. 

She won NYX Face Awards in 2012 and seriously this girl is really creative. That’s another reason why I love her videos, she puts so much effort to her videos and is so unique. And best thing of all she loves Disney like I do. 

She has different videos like Diys, Disney looks, tags, makeup tutorials…and even films with her husband. 

Charis is beautiful inside and out, I totally recommend her channel to anyone. Like I said she is one of my favorites ever!

More on Charis..

Makeup Haul | Recent Purchases

Hi guys, I know I have already post today but I feel it does not count because Valentines Day already past. Plus I’ve been wanting to share with you what I have recently purchased.

This is not to brag or anything, just sharing what I have picked up at the stores and hope you enjoy.

I have bought several lip products and some eye products as well.

h1

This will be just a haul I could do a review if you guys are interested. Let me know what product you would like for me to do a review.

h4

First items are from Hard Candy and from the Trolls movie. I personally haven’t watched it yet but it’s on the list. There are different colors to the collection and a eye shadow palette I believe but this is what I picked up.

I sometimes do peoples makeup and I like to use glitter so I picked these three for only $3 so I thought it was pretty good and it had pretty colors. I have used Hard Candy’s glitter before and I like it so its a plus.

h7

This is in the shade POPPY’S CELEBRATION

Metallic mate lipsticks are also in this collection and I love having different colors for the lips even though they are weird and I might not wear it often but I might like it for a look, Halloween, or I don’t know even eye shadow.

h5

 

Another product for the eyes is this eye liner from ELF(black) and I always have used liquid so I wanted to give it a try with is formula I have used it a couple of times before but I don’t like the little brush that comes with it I need to buy another one to make the application better.

h6

 

I feel in love with the color especially for coming up seasons Spring and Summer. Like I said I like to have different shades of lip products because I do like to change it up. I have used it once and I liked the formula its matte but not too matte where its to dry, its moisturizing. And I got the shade 300 LILAC

h8

 

I’ve been looking for a matte red liquid lipstick and I love the Milani ones, so a few weeks ago I picked this one up(22 AMORE) and I really like it. Its a really good red to have in the collection..it’s a little too bright than what I wanted but still a really pretty shade.

h9

 

I like nudes its one of my go-to colors lately and I ordered this one from Kylie Cosmetics in the shade EXPOSED and its a gloss which I don’t own any from her collection so I wanted to give it a try and I like the color.

h10

I haven’t tried a Too Faced lip product before but I found this one at Marshal’s for only $6! Its the metal version but its more settle than the Hard Candy one. Its a really pretty pink it has a sheen to it ( Melted Metallic Tu-tu)

h11

 

I got the Kylie Valentine Collection the Sweet Hear Kit which comes with two shadows and two mini lipsticks. One is a gloss( Literally) and a matte( Dolce K) They are both nudes the matte one is darker.

h12

 

Last item is this gorgeous mini palette which has two shadows (Love letter & Baby) I love the coral peachy shade which if you know me I love pink and the shimmery one is perfect. I didn’t swatch because I don’t like to swatch until I use it (I know weird me) but I do plan on using it this weekend and expect a review on it!

 

Thanks for reading and following me. I am trying to give you a great quality of posts!
