I never knew how important it was to highlight your brow bone until I became obsessed with make-up tutorials and actually started trying it. WOW! What a difference it makes!

I have starting becoming a NYX addict in the past 6 months and I'm not mad about it.

This shade "Aloha" is $5.00 and the absolute greatest highlighter I have come across. I started out using it on my brow bone and wow! complete transformation.

Then I got ballsy and started putting it on my checkbones and the center length of my nose! I am in looooove! This product is amazing and literally lasts all day. I have absolutely no complaints about it. If you haven't tried NYX products, this is a great one to start out with. Check the link to see more about this eyeshadow.

Don't Break Down When You Have Broken Powder

As I am getting ready this morning I go to put on my new fav matte bronzer by NYX and GASP!!! It's broken!! How did this happen? What did I do to deserve this? Well, a little time spent on Pinterest and I think I have found the solution. I will def be trying this tonight.

Step 1: Dump the shadow into a small bowl. You can use an extra makeup brush to get the original container clean.

Step 2: Use the back of a brush to crush the shadow into a fine powder.

Step 3: I used the cap to my rubbing alcohol as a measurement and poured it into the container with the shadow. Make sure to mix well until you end up with a paste! Start off by slowly adding the alcohol, to make sure you don’t make the mixture too watery. In the case that happens, it’s all good – it will just take a bit longer for the shadow to dry down.

I used a wooden stirrer that I had lying around, but you can use a spoon or anything you want.


Step 4: You’ll have a paste that you will mold into the original shadow container. Try to make it as even as possible! You will be able to make little adjustments later!

Step 5: Place the shadow where it will not be bothered for the next few hours.

Step 6: Time goes by ….. and after a couple of hours you can see the powder coming together. You can use a piece of fabric (or in my case a paper towel), tohelp mold the shadow and also give it a nice finish. Afterwards, leave it alone for several hours.

Step 7: All set! When all is said and done, it took around 8 hours or so to complete! Not bad!

There ya have it girls! No more broken powder or eyeshadow ever again!

Be a Bombshell

Thats what this time of year is about, right? Red. Red everything! Tis the season! I recently received the full sized version of Be A Bombshell lipgloss in Hot Mess in my December Ipsy MyGlam bag.
How'd they know?!?! I am absolutely in LOVE with this color. I have always be afraid to step out of my comfort zone and put red on my lips, but I did and I loved it. While I haven't been brave enough to wear two coats of it in public, one is plenty.
You have to check this out! Full size is $14.00, which is not a bad price and I definitely think it is worth it.
