Makeup Storage

Makeup storage

Good afternoon lovies hope you’re having a great weekend!!☀️☀️

This post was inspired by a lovely trip I took to Bj’s wholesale Thursday afternoon where I spotted the cutest and very much needed makeup storage ever!!!! I could not take my eyes off of it nor leave the store without it. Guess what’s even better? The price being only $15 for that much storage.

  • Nifty Makeup Carousel $14.99

So, this is what it looks like with all my makeup in it, it’s very easy to move around and grab things. Something really cool about is that it spins around hence the name “carousel”. At Bj’s they had it in silver and a minty color. I noticed that they don’t sell it on the Bj’s website so you can purchase it at your local Bj’s or another website here in 6 different colors. What I loved about this is the amount of space it has for literally everything! In the middle if you have long handle brushes you can place them there. Also, the style of it is modern and looks super classy anywhere you want to place it. My previous makeup storage was a makeup bag and a box 😦 it was impossible to find anything in there. Talk about UPGRADE!!



Changing subjects really quick…. I start my senior year of high-school on Monday! I’m really nervous but anxious to finally leave and move on to the real life and independance. It’s a new school for me cause I just moved to Orlando so I have literally no friends but my cousin who has the same exact name as me “Paula Suarez”. Being hispanics we also have a middle name and an extra last name so that’s the only difference. Sadly, we only have one class together not even lunch 😦  Wish me luck please!!!



Thanks for reading & hope you enjoyed!!

Mother Nature’s monthly gift 

mother nature

Hello friends & happy August!

It’s Tuesday the 4th already?!?! The time is literally flying by, how depressing :(. Well, yesterday morning Mother Nature decided to surprise me with that gift us women LOVE…Who am I kidding? That week is pure hell mostly because I get sooooo lazy, hungry, those awesome BACK PAINS, and CRAMPS. So, this post isn’t going to be all about makeup mostly because I’m to lazy for that right now but it’s about my survival items to get me through this blessed week from Mother Nature . Enjoy!💗

food

  • Netflix (obviously)
  • Simply Nature Blue Corn Tortilla Chips / ALDI
  • Water Bottle / Dollar Tree 
  • Advil 
  • Benner Green Tea / ALDI

Alright so these items here are my basics for surviving that week since i’m still in summer break I don’t really do much. I am a green tea lover and i’ve tried many brands but this one really stuck out to me because of the fresh and calming flavor that not many have (also because it was super cheap $1.20) Next are the blue corn chips that i’ve repurchased like 4 times THEYRE AMAZING!!!! They claim to be “Gluten Free, Preservative Free, and Organic” I totally agree, the taste is so fresh and satisfying. Advil though is my lord and savior because I tend to get a lot of cramps and back pain and blankets to keep me warm and cozy. Lastly, NETFLIX who doesn’t sit there in bed for 7 hours straight without noticing????


makeup survival

  • Rimmel Stay Matte primer
  • Revlon Eyelash Curler
  • Elf eyelash & brow gel clear
  • Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in 15 “Cherry Me”
  • NYC Smooth Skin loose face powder in 741A “Translucent”
  • Elf Kabuki Brush
  • NYX HD Concealer Photogenic in CW 06 “Glow”
  • Elf Tinted Moisturizer in Beige 
  • MaxFactor Lash Maker Waterproof in Black

These right here are my go to products during that special week because i’m so lazy and never wake up on time when I have to go out. It takes me about 10 minutes with this look mostly cause I apply the tinted moisturizer with my fingers. Other than that it’s a great natural look and lasts most of the day.


face

  • Clean & Clear dual action moisturizer
  • Clean & Clear Facial cleansers “night relaxing/Morning burst”
  • Pampers baby sensitive wipes

These are my holy grail for when I get home from a face full of makeup or nightly routine and just want to melt in my bed. If I have eye makeup on I usually remove it with baby oil cause it’s the most sensitive way for my lids. I recently switched from actual makeup remover wipes from Neutrogena to baby wipes and i’ve noticed they remove my makeup way better and don’t leave that burning sensation on my face. If you’re interested in the amazing Clean&Clear cleansers I have a review about it https://makeupwonders2015.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/cleanclear-daynight-cleansers/.. Definitely recommend these for a full face. Last but not least, the final step MOISTURIZING! This moisturizer has been so amazing to my face i’ve been using it for about a month already. It claims to prevent acne from forming and it’s completely true, I usually break out a week before my period but that didn’t seem to happen this time IM SO HAPPY!!!

Well, this is it guys hope you enjoyed don’t forget to get lots of SLEEP,FOOD,& WATER during that blessed week!

I’ve been having a hard time generating ideas to blog about :(, if you have any ideas or requests please let me know!!



Lots of love, PS💟

Blogging Essentials

blogging essentials

Good afternoon beauties!! ☀️

It’s a sunny day today in Orlando so I thought I would get in a blog before going out😊 Todays post is about my blogging essentials (I am not trying to brag for any reason, these items are things I’ve accumulated over the years as gifts)

Let’s begin!

IMG_5840

  • Canon EOS rebel T3 12.2 mp

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon/42286713

2 years ago I thought it was a great idea to ask for a camera for my 15th birthday just because everyone had one blah blah blah.. Worst mistake ever till now, only because I used it probably 4 times prior to starting my blog.. No you don’t necessarily need this but if you want good focus & more professional pictures on your blog it’s a good choice. It’s not a brand new 2015 camera but it does still work as good as the new ones. If you’re interested in getting a camera I would suggest this one, in the link it’s more expensive because of a lens it comes with which I don’t recommend yet. FullSizeRender copy 2

  • Forever 21 Hello Kitty notepad 

My dear sister got me a 2 pack of these notepads for my 16th birthday and I never wanted to use them because they were soooo cute! But now I decided to since they were small, travel sized and sort of personal. I keep all my ideas & dates written down as reminders and memories 😊

FullSizeRender (1)

  • Green water bottle Dollar Tree 

Who doesn’t love an afternoon trip to the dollar store???? I can go there everyday & leave the store with a bunch of unnecessary things. I can’t be the only one right? On those long editing days you gotta stay hydrated for extra energy & brain flow.

IMG_2202

  • iPhone 6 

A phone is extremely important for me & blogging because you can blog, edit pics, receive updates, most importantly SOCIAL MEDIA😍and check out other bloggers on the go. Doesn’t HAVE to be an iPhone but something in the same range ya know??

IMG_5831

  • Dark chocolate “choceur” 

Obviously I had to leave the best for last. A late night snack for long editing nights/days where you can’t even leave your room because you might wake the rest of your family. I purchased this at my local ALDI super market yesterday for $1.20 & let me tell you it’s DELICIOUS❗️❗️

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Well my fellow readers that’s it for today💋 If you have any requests or ideas please let me know!!!!

Xoxo,

ULTA HAUL!!!!

ulta haul edit

Happy Wednesday & National lipstick day!💄☀️

Im back after a month full of doubts and regrets😔 How have you guys been? I’ve been ok, enjoying the last bit of my summer break before I start the most exciting year left -SENIOR YEAR!!!!- So, because of that I did some retail therapy over at my favorite place Ulta because I have my senior portraits soon and i decided to do my own makeup. What’s even better was that most of their makeup lines were buy one get one 50% off!!!!!! Obviously I had to splurge💁🏽

Ps- I have not tried these products on my skin yet except the moisturizer. Also, the prices on this haul are without the discount Each product Below $15 originally!! 

(posting reviews soon)

concealer

  • NYX HD Concealer Photogenic in CW 06 “Glow”  $4.99

What really caught my attention was the fact it said “HD” and “photogenic”. Ive heard a lot of good reviews about this concealer as it was being compared to the Makeup Forever HD concealer so I decided to give this one a try because it was on the cheaper side. Funny story though, I bought this previously twice in the wrong shades which led to awkward returns and purchases at the same store with the same workers 3 times in one week😂🙈

eyeliner WP

  • NYX Retractable Eyeliner WaterProof in MPE02 “Black” $4.49

I didn’t really do any research on this product really because I needed to restock on eyeliner. It sort of intrigued me though because of its price so I said what the heck..

loose powderloose powder open

  • NYC Smooth Skin loose face powder in 741A “Translucent” $2.79

One lovely day, I was on youtube watching makeup reviews and one popped up for this product. Let’s just say I fell in love with how flawless and smooth the youtubers face looked that I had to buy it THAT day. ( EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE!!!) So, I did. Disappointing part though,  I don’t really like the packaging because every time I open it some of the powder falls 😔

IMG_5796 IMG_5797

  • NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in 565 $3.99

I just realized that they don’t have a name for their lipstick…that’s odd…Anyways, as you can tell i’m a little tan and choosing lip colors is really hard for me but this one OMG I can’t believe how natural looking and beautiful it looks! I can’t wait to try it! By the swatch I could tell how buttery it was & pigmented so thats a plus.

IMG_2173pallete

  • NYX Natural Shadow Palette $7.49

For this palette, I did do some research because its for my senior portrairs and I wanted to look as natural as possible. It did look awesome when the youtubers reviewed/demoed it. I’m sort of disappointed though 😦 As you can see below, they aren’t as pigmented and feel a little chalky. I havent played with this palette yet, so I really don’t know how well they work out & blend.

pallete swatchIMG_2181

What I did enjoy though is that you can create 2 looks: Day & Night!

powder foundpowder packaging

  • ULTA Double Duty wet&Dry pressed powder foundation in “Warm Tan” $12.50

 This product is by far my favorite, the texture is so soft and sort of buttery but sort of not.. You get me?? What I love about Ulta is that you can swatch products except the drugstore brands. When I swatched this on my jawline it looked so natural my mom didn’t even notice I was wearing anything. This is definitely not for my senior portrait makeup but for sure an everyday school necessity. Even better it was on sale for 5 fricking dollars!! FIVEEEEEE

moisturizer

  • Clean & Clear dual action moisturizer $5.29

Ive been on the hunt for a good but not oily moisturizer & let me tell you I AM IN LOVE!!!! It claims to say “moisturizes dry skin, treats & helps prevent pimples” let me tell you that in fact  it does do everything it says. I say this because it’s almost that time of month and i’ve been using this for about 2 weeks and usually i get a couple pimples near my nose but this month NOTHING, not even a slight red mark NOTHING!!!!

I forgot to include these bad boys in the Ulta haul image but better late than never! Am I right ladies???😂IMG_5798IMG_5671

  • ULTA nail laqcuer (left to right) X-DRY, DARK DENIM, & BASECOAT $6 each

 Ugh, indescribable how much I love this color on my tan skin! Clearly matched my bed comforter hahaha. The x-dry and basecoat made the nail laqcuer last about 2 weeks with 2 coats of the dark denim, which was impressive because I volunteer at an animal clinic so i’m always cleaning & scrubbing. Each of these were on sale for $2

Well ladies what’d ya think for a comeback??? If you want a full review on a certain product mentioned, please let me know! ☺️

Thanks for reading & have an amazing Wednesday/ National lipstick day!

XOXO,

PS💟

The cause of my disappearance 

Hey followers!

You guys are probably wondering what in the world happened to me…. Well, I was having doubts in all of this beauty blogging even though I really enjoy makeup because I noticed that I’m not that good of a writer and it’s just kind of hard to express myself. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had this issue. I just feel like no one really cares or enjoys my posts, you feel? I hope that’s not true 😔 I’m assuming this always happens when you’re just starting out..

I have gotten a few new makeup products so I’m planning new posts! Super excited to share with you guys!

If you have any ideas of what I should post or review comment below please!!!!😊
