Bellami Hair Extensions Review

photo-8

 

Hello Loves!

I promised a Bellami hair review a couple months ago and I finally am getting around to it! Needless to say, I love them! I only wear these extensions for photo shoots because I naturally have long hair, and I am one of those girls who loves to wear a pony tail on the weekly! BUT, if I were to wear extensions every day, I would highly suggest these. I wear the Bellisma “Dirty Blonde” 22inches. The color blends perfectly with my golden tones, and I like how it even adds a little more of a “blombre” look to my locks. Below I have written my favorite things about these extensions and why you should purchase your pair today…

Use discount code: JADE 

1. Keeps Curls
I feel like these extensions hold the curl really well. I usually just have to curl them once and they hold atleast for the next 5 times I use them! I don’t suggest to use a hot iron on them daily just to ensure that they last a lot longer.

2. Strong Clips
These rubber grip clips really hold to the hair. I didn’t have to tease the root or even add any hairspray for them to stay in place. The longest I have worn the extensions is around 5 hours, so I am not sure how well they would do for a full day, BUT I didn’t have any issues with discomfort and think they feel very secure.

3. Super Thick Wefts
These extensions are perfect for those seeking more volume to there hair. Each weft is filled with thick hair and a lot of it. I only use around 2 wefts in my hair to add thickness. Sometimes I will wear to on each sides of my hair {parted in middle} to really add that extra thickness at the root.They can feel a bit heavy if you are not used to wearing them, but this isn’t visible.

4. Must Brush Often
The only thing I noticed is that they need to be taken care of very often. To keep them looking quality I brush them with my Wet Brush after each use and before. I have not yet washed them, so once I do I will let you know how they turn out!

Hope you enjoyed this quick review and to get a discount be sure to use my code above! XOXO

Bronzed & Peachy: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

 Hello loves!
I am in love with the Chocolate Bar palettes from Too Faced! They each have a perfect combination of shimmery and matte shadows! I wanted to create a cat eye paired with lots of peach tones {my favorite}. I went for a peach cut-crease and glimmer lid using this fabulous palette and a few other new products I am enjoying! I am wearing the Lily Lashes for this look in the style “Tehran”. These are a new style of lashes for me, they are wispy and long, and the band is super comfortable and not too thick!

NYX NEW Highlight & Contour Palettes

 

 

 

Hello Makeup Queens!
Today I am sharing with you my review for the new NYX Highlight & Contour Palette. I finished my review for the new NYX Conceal & Contour creams that were using in this look also, HERE. I am very impressed with this refillable powder palette from NYX. They have definitely stepped up there game when it comes to face products. If you are on the market for a palette that contours as well as highlights & brightens, this one is great for you! I would compare it to the Kat Von D contouring palette that recently came out. The colors are highly pigmented and the price is super affordable {$25}! I would suggest this for makeup lovers of any level, beginners and professionals! You can purchase these now at Ulta stores or online!
I will be giving away one set on my Instagram, CLICK HERE!

Enjoy!

Colors used for this look:

I love the texture of these velvet/matte finish powders! They are great for those with all skin types and truly look amazing on the skin! I have been using them everyday for the past two weeks on clients and I am so happy with the results in photographs as well. You can wear these powders with a Primer under, BB cream, Foundation, or by themselves! I have been using my Morphe brushes to apply them, when it comes to the face, quality brushes are very important! Below I have listed the exact colors that I use from the palette and where they are to be applied! To see how I applied the Cream Contour, click HERE.

Pearly Pale White: This color is perfect for highlighting the inner corners of the eyes, cupids bow, and nose.

Matte Nude: This is a great cheekbone highlighter that has 0 shimmer to it. Great for brightening cheeks, middle of brows and under cheekbones to enhance structure.

Matte Soft Yellow: My FAVORITE color from the palette. This yellow is absolutely amazing for under the eyes to brighten! {comparable to Ben Nye Banana Powder}.

Pearly Soft Peach: A great color for all over face to set any foundation, also great for a color corrector for darkness/circles by eyes.

Matte Soft Brown/Red: Perfect for contouring the forehead, red undertones and good for those with more olive toned skin!

Matte Neutral Brown: This is great for bronzing the entire face. A true chocolate brown.

Matte Taupe: The best color for contouring the nose. This taupe/brown is very neutral and still on the lighter side so its great for sculpting the nose!

Matte Deep Brown: Great contour for the cheekbones. Cheekbones require a darker color for contouring so that they pop a bit more than the nose and forehead.

Contour For Less: NYX Cosmetics

Happy Monday!

While I was in LA I attended the NYX Unveiled party and walked away with the most amazing swag bag filled with all of NYX’s Spring 2015 products! While rummaging through all my new goodies, I was intrigued by all the awesome contouring powders and concealers they are coming out with! Today I am showing you a sneak of the NEW cream contour kits from NYX that I have been using non stop since! Cream contouring has been around forever, but just recently been a huge craze in the makeup world. I have my collection of favorite CC products, and this one has definitely been added. Contouring can be very tricky and confusing for many, but it doesn’t have to be! With the right products and tools, it can be much less complex than its made out to be!
