Mikasa Beauty Brushes

A few months back I got an email from the marketing director at Mikasa Beauty. They recognized that I have a strong social media platform and wanted to create a collaboration with me to introduce Mikasa Beauty Collection. Of course I couldn’t say no to them. I decided to purchases this Mikasa techni brushes set, it comes with four brushes. They even sent me a free lemon drop makeup blender (Mikasa 100)! I recommend you ladies try out these brushes!


aI’m glad Mikasa Beauty connected with me because I saw these type of brushes everywhere on social media and I was dying to buy some! I absolutely love love love these brushes! These techni brushes are made 100% synthetic fibers that create ultra-dense and soft brushes. I’ve been learning how to do facial contours. These techni brushes are perfect for applying and blending both powder and cream products to all areas to the face.

This rounded brush is great for application of blush, foundation, contour or setting powder. Also good for blending to the smalls areas of the face and cheeks.


This Mikasa Techni Brush #02 is the perfect multi-purpose tool. It can also be used to apply a soft wash of color to the eyelid or brow bone. It easily blends powder or cream eye shadows, face powders, and liquid or cream-concealers in the hard to reach contours of the face.

Feeling Funky Today!!!

Today, I decided to pull out my black spiked sneaker wedges from Aldo. I haven’t worn these pairs in years! At first it was hard for me to put together an outfit because I was being indecisive with my style choices. I couldn’t set my mind up! I literally sat on my bed for half an hour , staring blank at my closet.. Finally! I decided what I want to wear for work today. To paired up my spiked wedges,  I picked up a casual black midi skirt from Forever21, a light grey sweater sleeves crop top from H&M, and my favorite black and red plaid shirt. 

For my makeup choices for today, I decided to go light on the makeup then accentuate my lips with  a pop of color and darken my eyebrows. I used Luxe Lip color from Bobbi Brown and the lip color was called “Parisian Red”. 

I was definitely feeling funky today. And since it is Friday.. why not have FUN! I hope you guys like my outfit inspiration!

I was lucky to find these because I’ve been searching for the PERFECT makeup setting spray to keep my makeup looking flawless and to last long. I could not just pick one or the other, so I grabbed both makeup setting spray! And I knew I made the right decision buying two products! And I wasn’t disappointed by these products either!

Lo’Real Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Setting Spray

I’m totally obsessed with this setting spray so far for my oily skin!. I love the fresh and soft scent.You can barely feel the product on your face and the mist feels lightweight! I can definitely tell a difference when I spray this on my completed face! Powdery cake face no more!I This kept my makeup looking fresh all day long. I sprayed it in an X and T pattern as directed on the bottle and that covered my entire face. It does feel wet after application but it dries very fast and has no offensive odor. I this did not irritate my eyes, so I made no special attempts to shield my eyes other than closing them.Price is a little steep $13.99 – $16.99, however setting spray are often too expensive. I would rather buy this product any day because it’s so worth it! I totally recommend this to anyone!

According to L’Oreal’s Website:

“Locks in makeup for a “just applied” makeup look all day.
Lightweight mist, barely there feel.
Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic.

Keep your makeup looking fresh hours after application: no melting, fading or touch-ups necessary. This lightweight, oil free setting spray locks in your total makeup look, Face, Eyes, and Lips, preventing color from smudging or settling into fine lines for all-day staying power.”

($7.99)

There is also  NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray, but I decided to buy the Dewy Finish setting spray to test it out first.  I will eventually buy the Matte Finish Setting spray. This lightweight, water based setting spray keeps your makeup looking dewy and A-M-A-Z-I-N-G all day long through any kind of weather. Keeping you looking FLAWLESS! I am loving it! This spray keeps my makeup looking natural rather than a powdery face cake. I’ve always wanted to try a setting spray, but they are often too expensive, but for the price $7.99 I decided to give this one a try! I use this product a lot and my makeup stays on all day long!  For me that is great, because some days I am up and have make up on from 8am-8pm. I put it on ten minutes after my makeup has been put on. If I spray it right away, I’ve had it run my mascara, but if my makeup’s dry it is just perfect. I will continue to use this product, and repurchase it when it runs out, but because I only need one or two sprays a day, I have a feeling it will last a long time. I totally recommend this!!
