What Are Your 5 Favorite Makeup Brushes?

Posted by at in Beauty, Favorite Products, Makeup

shutterstock_181902668_opt YAY, you made it through Monday! Happy Tuesday everyone. I was wondering what your absolute favorite makeup brushes are at the moment? Here are some of my favorites…

1. NARS Ita Kabuki Brush

If you are a makeup addict, then you have probably heard about the NARS Ita Kabuki brush that everyone is currently raving about. Unfortuantely, it’s sold out almost everywhere! Thankfully, I was able to order it online and give it a try.

First, I would usually NEVER spend this much money on a brush, but after trying it out in stores, I knew it would be a great investment. This brush is designed specifically for contouring. It has a sleek thin handles and super soft dense bristles. The bristles are dense enough to evenly spread out the product, but soft enough to blend out harsh edges and leave a seamless finish.

If you struggle with contouring, this brush will be your new best friend! It really will make the process SO much easier!

2. Laura Mercier Fan Brush

This is one brush that many people think they don’t need. It is often overlooked in the makeup world, but EVERYONE needs a fan brush in their collection. There’s no better way to apply highlighter than with this little number.

This is a pricier fan brush, but if you are going to purchase one, don’t you want it to be awesome? A lot of other fan brushes are flimsy and way too soft to get the job done. The Laura Mercier Fan Brush is great because it is denser and holds its shape better. I think that it is the most perfect brush for setting powder. It is such a great fan brush and it is oh-so-soft too!

3. Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush

If there was only one face brush that I was ever allowed to use again, it would for sure be this one! This is my holy grail makeup brush, without a doubt. I don’t like to apply anything with my fingers, so I use this brush because it’s great for almost everything.

The greatest part…it’s only $20 dollars! For a holy grail brush, you can’t beat that!! I use it for everything — foundation, contouring powder, bronzer, blush, and even highlighting! It’s just that great. You may notice that some brushes leave lines and streaks on your face, but with this brush there is none of that. Everything looks so smooth and blended evenly.

This brush is like a bunch of little brushes in one, it has so many uses. You may never need another brush again….

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Duo Brush #7

I think that the eyebrows are the hardest part of makeup to master. I had the most difficult time filling them in the beginning. Then I found the amazing Anastasia Brow products, and I was officially saved.

This brush is perfect for lining underneath of the brow so you get that crisp clean look. It is also great for blending product throughout the brow. It makes your eyebrows look so much more natural. If you’re really good you can combo this brush with an eyebrow pencil, but if you’re a beginner you need to start with this brush. It will make the learning process so much easier!

5. Bare Minerals Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush

Ah! This brush is just amazing!

It can be SO hard to cover up dark spots or circles sometimes, but this brush will help you do the job. It has flat stiff fibers that won’t clog up with creamy concealers. It enables you to carefully cover any unwanted blemishes because it has a perfectly tapered tip. Concealer is one product that I will not leave the house without, and this brush makes it super quick and easy to conceal before running out the door.

It’s also the perfect size for putting on eye shadow primer! A little pricey at $20, but well worth the money.

The Best Detangler Brush Just Got Better!

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

My favorite detangler brush now comes in a SPARKLY version! Could this brush get any better?!

I love my sleep and at night after I shower, I barely blow dry my hair. So, when I wake up in the morning it is so tangled. I had a really hard time brushing it. It hurt so bad! Then a friend bought me the Michel Mercier Detangler Brush for Christmas and it made detangling my hair so much easier!

Sparkly Michel Mercier Detangler BrushIt is not completely pain free, but it is such an improvement. I think that as long as you start at the bottom and work your way up, this brush works perfectly. I like that the handle is long and easy to hold. It work great whether my hair is wet or dry and it never slips from my hand.

I use it on my niece too (who turns four today OMG). She hated having her hair brushed before we bought this and now she sometimes will fall asleep while I’m brushing it that’s how easy it is.

Did I mention how much I love the new design? It is so cute and I love that it’s sparkly!! These will make great gifts this year for Christmas for anyone.

I will be placing my order today + will post pictures as soon as I get my new sparkly brush!

I’d love to hear what you think of the new design, or your thoughts on the brush overall!!

The Best Colored Hair Clip-Ins

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

haircolor

Lately, I have really wanted to experiment with color in my hair!

I have always had super dark brown/black hair, which I love, but sometimes it can be pretty boring. I don’t want to dye it because I can’t have brightly colored hair at work. I’m also too afraid to do something so drastic.

Well, while I was on Pinterest the other week, I saw that Demi Lovato endorses colored hair extensions now. They are called Secret Color Hair Extensions. Of course, I ordered them! They finally arrived and I really really love them! They make me wish I could dye my hair. ):

They come in several colors and they are super easy to put in your hair. It literally takes seconds! I had to cut mine because they were too long, but now they blend perfectly.

I also bought some other colored ones from Etsy. They have the best stuff on there. I could spend ALL day looking at the beautiful items on Etsy.

Anyways, I just wanted to share how much I love colored extensions now. If you are thinking about trying them, I would definitely go with Secret Color Extensions from Demi Lovato or …… They are inexpensive and I really loved them. Plus, they look super cute!

I’d love to answer any questions, or hear what you think about either of these colored extensions.

Sally Hansen Gel Nails Review

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Nails

pin1
I absolutely love nail polish and having my nails painted, BUT I hate when they scuff right after I paint them or chip the very next day. So, I would spend tons of money on gel nails every month. Then I realized how much I was actually spending and went back to regular nail polish.

Sally Hansen recently came out with a Gel Nail Polish Kit, but I didn’t really want to do all the work involved with it. I didn’t want to buy the light, or have to use the tin foil to get the polish off. So, I never tried the kit that comes in the box from Sally Hansen.

The other day I was in CVS though, and saw that they had a Top Coat that you could buy that would give you instant Gel Nails. So, obviously I had to try it. I bought the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat  and a super bright color to end my summer with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tidal Wave.

This stuff is amazing! It goes on super smooth and easy because Sally Hansen Nail Polish has the best nail brush. It is thicker then other brushes so you only need a few swipes on the nail. It dried really quickly and I had an amazing no-chip manicure in no time at all!

pin2

I put two coats of the Tidal Wave polish on. Then I used the Miracle Top Coat and I was done. I didn’t use a base coat because it said that I didn’t need it. I have now had my bright blue nails for 6 days and still no chips or scoffs in them. I won’t be using anything but Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish from now on. It would be a waste of my time to go back to regular polish and have to do touch ups all the time.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this incredible nail polish, or any tips or stories you may have!

Secret Extensions Ombre Hair!

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

Ombre Secret Extensions #hair #extensions #secretextensions #daisyfuentes

I love love love my Secret Extensions! When I first ordered, I got a color that perfectly matches my hair because I wanted to make sure that they matched and that I liked them. I finally received them and they were perfect. I ordered the Brown-Black Secret Extensions because I thought that they would match best…which they did!

They took awhile to ship to me which was kind of annoying, but that was the only real issue I had. When I got them, they were wrapped in adorable packaging and they were exactly what I was expecting.

After getting that pair, I saw this picture of a girl with ombre ones and I had to try it!! I purchased just a few shades lighter and it turned out perfectly! I didn’t want to dye it, so ombre extensions were the perfect idea. I will definitely post pictures soon when my new camera comes so that everyone can see what they look like!

They come in so many colors that I know you will be able to find your perfect shade! Mine was pretty easy though because my hair is so dark. I would definitely suggest purchasing if you have always wanted to try extensions, but thought they were to expensive. These are great quality for a great price.

The Best Products for Healthy Hair

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

healthy1

Here is a list of all of my favorite hair products. I actually use these products daily and I love them all. They are actually all relatively inexpensive too!

1. OGX Intensive Moisture Mask, Hydrating Macadamia Oil, 8oz – This is the absolute best for deep conditioning hair. I put it in about once a week and leave in on for 15 minutes and then rinse. My hair feels so smooth & healthy afterwards! It’s especially important to use a deep conditioner during the sumer so it’s the perfect time to try it out.

2. Conair Dryer Infiniti 1875 Wt Two-Toned W/0.25oz Argan Oil – I love this blowdryer! I have had many blowdryers that give off barely any air, but this one actually feels like you are in a wind tunnel. It dries so much quicker and it always feels smooth and shiny when I’m done. Don’t forget the Heat Protectant though!

3. CHI Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Fast Drying Volume Shaping Spray Unisex, 12 Ounce – You won’t find a better smelling hairspray, I promise! This smells so good that I will actually use it as body mist sometimes. It isn’t sticky at all and it leaves your curls looking perfectly. It doesn’t make your hair frizzy or crunchy like many other hairsprays. Here is a site that has the Chi Spray discounted!!

4. It’s A 10 Leave-In Conditioner Plus Keratin, 4 Ounce – I use this everyday on my hair. It won’t leave it feeling gross or greasy, so you can use as much as you want. It is a little pricey, but it is definitely worth it, especially if you don’t like to use a lot of hair products. This should be your go to!

5. TRESemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse, 8.1 oz – This is the best mousse that I have found this far. It smells really good and it definitely helps my curls hold throughout the day. I use just one pump and it’s the perfect amount. I also love that it is foamy! It makes it a lot easier to distribute throughout your entire head.

6. Victoria’s Secret So Sexy Nourish Healthy & Hydrated Conditioner – This smells so good that you won’t even need to wear perfume! My hair feels so healthy and smooth after using this conditioner. I noticed the first day I switched a difference in my hair. I like the nourish one and the volume, so I usually switch it up.

7. Chi 44 Iron Guard, 2 Fluid Ounce
– I find this to be the best heat protectant out there. It’s so light and not greasy at all. If you use any sort of heat on your hair, you HAVE to us heat protectant. Heat is so damaging to your hair! So, if you must use it, might as well protect your hair while doing so.

8. Michel Mercier No Tangle Brush – I love the Mercier Detangler Brush. I use it every morning to detangle my hair after sleeping on it all night. I don’t know why, but when I shower at night it is always more tangly than normal. This brush detangles without damaging!
