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.


Mikasa Techni brush #06

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.


This Mikasa Techni brush #L2 is perfect for creating firm, precise line along the upper and lower lash lines. Also defines and fill brows, and can be used to define the lips.

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!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour kit

I finally jumped on the bandwagon as well because I heard so many positive reviews about this new “Powder Contour Kit”. I bought myself a Powder contour kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills have to say I’m highly obsessed with it! I agree with my other beauty gurus, this is the BEST contour kit by far! Worth every penny! I bought this contour kit from Sephora or you can buy this kit direct from the Official Anastasia Beverly Hills Salon website. The prices are the same. It doesn’t matter where you buy the powder contour kit from it cost $40.00!! 

“The premier contour and highlighting palette for professional makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts alike. Features 6 perfectly crafted highlighting and contouring shades for sculpting and defining your features.” -Anastasia Beverly Hills

This is an amazing palette everyone should have. The colors are great on everyone and the texture is so soft and easy to blend. This contour kit is available in three shades: Light to Medium, Medium to Tan, & Tan to Deep. Now I bought the Light to Medium shade palette. Works on All skin colors! The powder feels very soft and light on your skin, I’m pretty sure any girl would love this! I highly recommend this contour kit to everyone!

I’m also planning on to buy the Cream Contour Kit as well from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Stay tune for my next review for the Cream Contour Kit!


Anastasia Soare is widely referred to as a beauty innovator, and for good reason. Long before professional eyebrow shaping became an essential beauty ritual, she was the go-to beauty specialist for top celebrities, and has singlehandedly turned perfect brows and youthful eyes into essential accessories.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Setting Spray VS. NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray

imageI was at CVS Pharmacy and came across these two Makeup setting spray, Lo’Real Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Setting Spray.and NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray! 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!

Here are my reviews &  how to use these makeup setting spray:

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

infallible spray$13.99-$16.99

(Photo: courtesy of Lo’Real Paris Website)

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.”

How to use this:

Shake well, Hold 8 inches – 10 inches away, close your eyes and spray 4 to 6 times in an X&T motions, Avoid spraying in eyes.

NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray

($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!!

NYX reviews

How to use:

Shake, spray and set! Shake the bottle and spray onto your face from a 6 inch distance. The spray will then set your makeup resisting unwanted color fade.

We both have similar dreams, such as pursuing a career in the Fashion Industry one day.  Guy saw notifications on Facebook about my announcements about launching my own Fashion Blog. so, he reached out to me in April to ask  if I would like to do a photo shoot with him.

Summer is not over yet! Here are 6 Summer Beauty Trends Not To Forget About

(courtesy from harpersbazaar.com)

I was on my Twitter account, skimming through Tweets my timeline and I saw this interesting article from Harpersbazaar.  I wanted to share this piece with everyone. This article is pretty inspiring, its about fashion trends “6 summer beauty trends that we should about!”


Here are The 6 summer beauty trends:

“In makeup”

(courtesy of harpersbazaar.com)

“Orange Lips”, this type of makeup trend had been seen at fashion shows like Rag & Bone, Dsquared, & Prabal Gurung. How does orange lips works? well, because reddish orange lipsticks brightens up on the face and makes the eyes twinkle! This balance out the rest of the face because it is consider as a shimmery and sparkle highlighter. I’m actually obsessed with the orange lips trend! I love bright lipsticks because the reddish orange lips look sophisticated and chic!


“In Hairstyle”

(courtesy of harpersbazaar.com)

“Windswept Updos,” this type of updo hairstyle has been seen at fashion shows like Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and Peter Som. How does this type of hairstyle works? Well, because the worse your hair always starts in the morning, the more it lends itself to one of these unkempt, hairdos. All we need to do is just pin, twist, tuck and forget about it! I know I can never pull of this type of hairstyle because my hair is too straight! No matter how much hair products I used!


“In Makeup”

“Au Naturale,” this type of makeup trend had been seen at fashion shows like Chloe, Isabel Marant, and Alexander Wang. How does this makeup style works? well, because it’s all about embracing our natural makeup, our natural beauty. This makeup trend is all about clean skin, groomed eyebrows, and lips that are actually the color of lips never, ever go out of style. I think it is sexy when women don’t wear makeup everyday because this allow ourselves to be comfortable of our own skin, plus makeup damages our skin. It’s okay to let your skin breathe!


“In Hairstyle”

(courtesy of harpersbazaar.com)

“Rumpled braids,” this type of hairstyle had been seen at fashion shows like Rachel Zoe, Alberta Ferretti, and Giles. How does this hairstyle works? Well, because “braids only look prim when they’re created with sleek-back and  stick-straight, American girl doll strands”. Otherwise, these type of braids look edgy, romantic, and still straight-up simple.  I will definitely test out this hairstyle when my hair grows longer!

“Pastel Eyes,” this type of makeup trend had been seen at fashion shows like Badgely Mischka, Burberry, and Prada. How does this eye makeup trend works? well, because these colorful eye shadows looks very sophisticated, also these shadows doesn’t look cheesy when it falls on the soft side of saturation. I love pastel eyes, however we should remind ourselves not use a lot of colorful shadows because  then we’ll look like a bunch of clowns 😀


I hope you enjoy this post!! I know I loved the article that I read from harpersbazaar.com 🙂
