Makeup of the Day | May 2nd – May 5th, 2018 – Riverfete and Cut Creases.

MOTD (2)

Good Afternoon, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I did for sure and I have a few pictures, a MOTD and an OOTD to share with ya’ll today.  I meant to get this up Monday but yesterday was a complete fail. It consisted of me just trying to stay awake long enough to get back on a day schedule because I stayed up WAY too late Saturday.

Glam on the Go! Tips + Looks

glam on the go
Hello, Beauties! Dear Dharma asked if I would like to do another post with some more beauty advice so here we are.  Dear Dharma is an online advice column, so if you got questions, she got answers. You can check out Dear Dharma here for more.

In today’s post, I want to give you some of my tips for Glam on the Go when you need to take your daytime look into an evening look using just a few products that you can take along with you in your handbag. So you can get glam at the office or in the car then head out for drinks with friends or a date night with someone special.

I also included some looks I like to go to for those busy days when I need to amp my look up on the go.

Currently, I am still recovering from the weekend, it was a long one and your girl needed a break from being a functioning human for a couple days. So, I decided to share a Mood Board I made over on Pinterest for Spring 2017.

Bee Beauty | Weekly Edit | February 27th – March 5th, 2017

Bee Beauty (1)Good Evening/Morning, It’s Monday, well it was when I started writing… Anyway, Monday means I have my weekly roundup post. I was calling these “Last Week in Picture. Life + Makeup” but that was just too long so Monday posts have a new name, “Bee Beauty Weekly Edit”. What yall think? I should just change my posting schedule to Monday-ish, Wednesday-ish, and Friday-ish. My sleep cycle is backward right now.

Anyway, in this post, we talk Mardi Gras, knee injuries, retail therapy, nights out, loss, morals, ethics and what’s coming up this week on Bee Beauty. It’s gonna be a long one so grab some coffee and let’s jump in!

January in Makeup + Favorites

january

Good afternoon guys! Today I have a round-up of my MOTD’s and Beauty Obsessions for the month of January.  Kind of a long post so let’s grab a coffee and jump right on in.   photo OUTLINES GIRLS II - LITTLEDR3AMS 12_zpsfq4id3kn.jpg

Question. Would MOTD’s be better in a weekly post and just include all my favorites in my Month in Pics posts? I feel like this is too much for one post and it makes more sense to have all the favorites together. I’m going to give that a try for February. I think I will just do weekly updates with both types of post together.

Okay, let’s get on with all the MOTD’s for January.

I also posted A Winter Makeup Tutorial in January, you can check it out here: Ghost Song – Winter Makeup Tutorial feat. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance + Kat Von D Metal Matte

Time for some makeup products I have been obsessing over this past month.

Obviously, if you couldn’t tell from my MOTD’s I was in love with the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette. I can’t stop reaching for this one.  photo 20161208_085038_zpsbwdbdoge.jpg

On the lips, I have been loving these Matte Lipsticks from a Columbian Makeup Brand called Glips. I couldn’t find their website so I’ll link you their Instagram here: @glipscosmetics
 photo 20170103_104414_zpsp9pcy20f.jpgI have really really really been like this Faux Whites Eyeliner from NYX on the inner water line. It’s super brightening,  eye opening, natural and long wearing.

Next is the NYX Faux Blacks in Oxblood. I need more reasons to use this guy! I love it. Such great quality.
 photo 20170114_222200_zpsyzwbu0jy.jpg

This! The NYX Pro Foundation Mixer is White is such a lifesaver, it allows me to customize the tone of my foundations so I get the perfect match on my pale ass face. It’s light weight, adds no additional coverage or cake to your foundation.

and lastly, for skincare, I have been enjoying the Lumapro-C Brightening Pigment Corrector Serum from Hydropeptide. I think it’s been helping my skin out and fading my hyperpigmentation.  photo 20170111_075422_zps1l5akysv.jpg
