Top 4 Bronzers For The Perfect JLO Glow

Hi dolls!

I can’t believe summer is just around the corner. It’s crazy to think we will be shopping for bathing suits soon. If you know me, you know I’m not a fan of tanning. I don’t even like being in the sun for long periods of time. If you want to go hiking, count me out! However, like most girls out there, I want to have sun-kissed skin during the Spring/Summer. I’ve rounded up my favorite bronzers that give me the perfect JLO glow.

Enjoy!

Top 4 Bronzers

Top 4 Bronzers

1. Too Faced: Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer – $30

I love this bronzer because you can also use it as a highlighter. If you want an extra glow on your cheekbone or nose, this bronzer will do the trick. I love that this product has brown, pink, and white shades. You’re seriously getting a great deal. I usually apply this product to my cheekbones and I mix the white and light brown shade to highlight my nose.

2. Kat Von D: Everlasting Bronzer – $18 (It’s on sale right now!)

I love that this bronzer doesn’t have much shimmer to it. You can definitely use it for contour, or you can give your skin a more natural glow. It’s the perfect shade and the chocolate colored bronzer really adds life to my pale skin.

3. Milani Cosmetics: Baked Bronzer – $8.49

This bronzer is so gorgeous. I like to use this product when I don’t have a lot of makeup on my skin. It blends so well and looks even better when you have a small touch of bb cream. It really gives you a flawless glow, while making it appear like you have the perfect tan. This bronzer has a lot of shimmer to it, so it’s best to blend it or use a fan brush. A little goes a long way. I also love that this product comes with a small brush. Perfect for on-the-go touch ups!

4. Stila: Set and Bronzed Baked Powder Trio – $34

I honestly love the application. You have to twist the compact to get the product out, and it mixes up the three different shades. It creates a beautiful, radiant coco shade that really adds color to your skin. I like to pack this when I’m traveling because it’s a mixture of the Kat Von D bronzer and Milani Bronzer. It’s the best of both worlds. Fun fact: I found this bronzer at Marshall’s for $7.99. STEAL! Check out your Marshall’s to see if you can find more Stila products. 😉

I love these bronzers for different reasons – However, I promise you will be glowing  just like JLO!

Selena Quintanilla Inspired Makeup Looks

Hi dolls!

I want to dedicate this post to one of my idols – Selena Quintanilla.

No one rocked red lips like she did. I channeled my inner Selena in this post with four of my favorite looks.

She was the definition of glamor and yet she humbly shopped at Wal-Mart just like everyone else. Her style was effortless and it’s still influential in today’s fashion. Her bustiers are iconic. Selena was definitely ahead of her time.

Selena was the ultimate star. Not many performers today can sing better live. If you look back at old videos, Selena’s voice sounded incredible while she was on stage and you could feel her passion with every single note she hit. It’s honestly so amazing.

Selena was the most down-to-earth celebrity. She connected with all of her fans, and wasn’t afraid to be real with them. 

I know I sound like I met her or like I actually saw her in concert, but that’s what is so great about her. Selena’s music, fashion, and impact on the Latin community still lives on. It’s almost as if she never passed away.

I was about 2-years-old when Selena tragically died on March 31st. Even then, I still knew about her music because that’s all my family played. I’m born and bred from Texas, so best believe Selena was a big deal to me. Not to mention, I’m also a Mexican-American just like her.

When the movie came out, that’s when I really understood what happened to her. After the film, I fell even more in love with her music. It’s crazy to think she passed away when she was only 23. I’m 23 and still feel like a teenager sometimes. It’s insane to think she was already so successful in her career and creating music that would live on forever. Gone too soon.

Here are my favorite looks:

Beauty Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Hi dolls!

I’m so late to the party! I know this product has received so many reviews and first impressions, so I decided to try it out for myself! I have to say that I have a love-hate relationship with this concealer.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Review

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer Review

Product: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: $8.99 (Prices vary, but ULTA always has discounts!)

Maybelline Instant Age Concealer Rewind Review

PROS: Feels like foundation, thick coverage for annoying pimples/redness, and thankfully, it feels like you have nothing on!

CONS: Hate the applicator, like soooo much! This might be a personal thing, but I don’t like twisty tubes or that the applicator is a sponge. I feel like you don’t know how much product you’re actually getting out. There aren’t that many shades, so if you’re a darker skin tone, it could be hard to find the shade that matches you best.

****

I’m not gonna lie, I was a little terrified to post a photo of me with a huge pimple on the Internet! I do this for you! LOL. Seriously, what better way to test out this product, which is meant for concealing. However, this product mostly claims to cover up dark circles and redness, so I was hoping it would cover up the planet on my chin!

Like I said earlier, I hate the applicator and the twisty top. Not my favorite, but not the worst either. It’s hard for me to tell how much product I’m getting because the sponge sort of soaks it all up, and I can’t twist it too much or else I’ll make a mess.

I love that this product is thick, yet feels weightless. I’m definitely one of those beauty girls who HATES to feel cakey. My oily skin does not react well to too much product. So it’s nice to have a concealer that covers, but that also doesn’t feel like frosting on your face.

With that being said, this concealer tends to crust if your face is dry. In my blemish area, I used a nightcream that usually dries out the pimple. So for the rest of the day, I noticed that my chin was more dry compared to most days, and the concealer sort of became crusty. Surprisingly, this product works well with oily skin. My under eyes looked flawless.

Overall, I would probably purchase this concealer again. It’s definitely not my favorite and it’s not the first concealer I grab, but it does work.

Hope this helped lovelies! If you’ve tried this product, I want to hear from you! xoxo

Beauty Review: Covergirl Plumpify Mascara

Hi dolls!

First and foremost, I received this product courtesy of Influenster in their P&G Beauty Voxbox. I was so excited to get Covergirl’s Plumpify Mascara by Blast Pro! I really wanted to try it. Even if I wasn’t receiving it, I would’ve still bought the mascara.

*All opinions are my own.*

I’ve never tried a Covergirl mascara so, again, I was SUPER excited about this one. I wanted to love this product and I tried really hard to like it, but I just didn’t.

 

PROS: Your lashes will end up looking long and mostly full.

CONS:

Huge applicator, makes your eyes look like spider legs, it gets clumpy, and it takes FOREVER to dry.

****

REVIEW: I HATE it. I know. It makes me sad to say this too. Let me begin with how gimmicky and HUGE the applicator is. Not to mention, it’s kinda hard to take the wand out of the tube. I’m not sure if Covergirl thought bigger wand means bigger lashes, but it just made a bigger mess. I was literally afraid to stab myself in the eye. The brush is so big that you really can’t coat all of your lashes evenly.

The mascara is very watery and gel like. It’s almost the same as gel liner, except it doesn’t dry as fast. It takes FOREVER to dry. You have to be precise when applying the product or else it’s going to get all over your eyelids. It got all over my lids! Not only does it smear all over, but your lashes WILL clump, even with one coat! By the second coat, my lashes looked like spider legs, and there was no way to separate them or make them look full because the mascara still hadn’t dried.

I’m extremely disappointed I did not like this mascara. 😦 Crying because I wanted to love it. I do think that even if I liked the product, it would be very hard for me to buy it. It’s expensive considering it’s a DRUGSTORE mascara. It’s $10.49 at most stores. For a couple more dollars, you could buy high end mascara and actually get the lashes you want!

Pretty in Pink Lips (Valentine’s Day Look)

Hi dolls!

I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is almost here! Sadly, my boyfriend and I won’t be able to spend the romantic holiday together, but that means he won’t have to sit through my romantic comedy marathon! 😉 What are your plans?

****

Pink is my signature color. Seriously, ask my mom. She will tell you that I only purchase items that are pink or have a touch of pink. Everything NEEDS to be PINK, including my toothbrush, hairbrush, phone case, notepads, pillows, you name it. I’ve just always loved the color and I’m pretty sure it runs in my family. My Tia Laura has the same obsession.

I wanted to share my favorite shades of pink that would be perfect for a night out with your girls, a date night with your boyfriend/girlfriend, or a chocolate-eating movie night in on Valentine’s Day. I’ll probably be eating lots of chocolate!

So let’s dive right in!

  1. e.l.f: Sociable (#7711): $1
  2. Love & Beauty by Forever 21: Pink Rose: $3.90
  3. Wet n Wild: Wine Room (906D): $2.29

I love this shade. The lipstick is not only affordable, but it smells so delicious, just like a Starburst! In real life, this shade is more of a Barbie pink color. It applies easily and gives your lips moisture. It almost feels like you’re wearing a long-lasting lip balm! Perfect for Galentine’s (ladies celebrating ladies before Valentine’s Day)!

Okay, so I’m actually pretty terrible when it comes to applying lipstick without a lip liner. Sorry, ladies!!! Can I just say that the packaging is so cute and luxurious at the same time. This lipstick is a little more matte and you’ll need to build the color up with at least two coats. I love how feminine this color makes me feel. It’s pink, but it’s not in your face. It’s the perfect blend of pink. I almost feel like Audrey Hepburn. This shade is great for someone who wants a little pop of color without having to be too dramatic. Perfect for a date night!

Alright! I LIVE, BREATHE, DIE for this color! The name, wine room, couldn’t be more perfect because if you apply one coat of this lipstick, it almost looks like you have the perfect wine stained lips. I actually applied 3 coats to give it more an over the top look. This pink shade has a lot of nudes mixed in. This lipstick really does add a little pop of color to your lips if you apply one coat. I just love it! It can be worn during the day while you’re running errands or you can build up the product and turn it into a nighttime look.
