Hi there, so I just got the Tarte x Lele Pons palette, and I am loving it. This palette is so pretty. When I saw it on tarte’s Instagram feed I knew I needed it. So my sister got it for me for Christmas. I was so excited to try it out, so here is an Everyday Makeup tutorial.
What I like about the eyeshadow palette.
So the first thing I liked was the look of it. I mean the Purple and marble packaging is gorgeous. It has a large mirror which is handy for when you can’t be in front of one.
I am really loving the shades of shadows as well. With its 6 shimmer shades and 3 matte anyone can create tons of looks with this palette. It even has a blush and a highlight shade too.
Everyday makeup tutorial
To create this look I started with boo boo cakes all over my lid. Next I applied amigos through the crease and Cabo on the outer corner and down to my lower lash line. Then I took hibiscus and patted that on my lid, with piña colada on the inner corner. And finished that up with a liquid liner and mascara.
For my “face” makeup I took and blended Cover Girl Trublend foundation (in the shade porcelain). To contour I used the darker side of Rimmel London insta duo contour stick (in the safe light) and Rimmels stay matte concealer (in the lightest shade) as the highlight shade. Then for blush I took the shade playa from the lele pons palette.
I am loving this palette, have you tried it? What did you think? Also if you choose to recreate this look please tag me on Instagram it so I can see them. Also let me know in the comments what your favorite eyeshadow palette.

I love nail polish. I love having my nails look nice, and having them bright fun colors. Doing my nails is also a bit therapeutic. Any thing that requires attention and focus -only for a short amount of time- seems to be therapeutic and calming to me. I can only focus for so long before I get bored and quit. I also tend to smudge my nails every time because I’m too impatient to wait for them to dry. Gel polish is nice but they seem like more of a hassle then they’re worth. So I thought I’d try dip nail polish, and ::SPOILER ALERT!:: I loved it.
How do you apply dip nail polish?
It’s easy, a bit time consuming but totally worth it. So first you’re going to want to file. File everything you really need to rough up the surface of your nail so there’s something to stick to. After abusing your nails you’ll want to clean the dust off of them. I bought this one, but it’s essentially just rubbing alcohol so that will suffice.
Now that they’re clean you’re ready to start. I start with a base coat. It’s not necessary but it seems to help adhere the dip to my nails.
When your base coat is dry your ready to start. First coat one nail with the base gel and dip instantly into the powder. The base gel dries pretty quickly so you have to do it one nail at a time. After they’ve been dipped brush off any excess powder with a fluffy brush. If you buy this kit it comes with a sponge to wipe away excess powder. Then follow up with the activator. Clean any left over powder and repeat… twice. Cleaning with the alcohol will help keep the base gel from picking up any of the dip powder causing the brush to harden and not apply a smooth coat. Also it’s best to get the brush all of the way back into the bottle when not in use so the gel doesn’t dry.
All that’s left of to smooth it all out with a nail file, an electric one is quicker and easier. I also do this in between the second and third coat as well. Once you’re finished coat it with a shiny top coat. My kit came with one but I prefer the one below. Now you have beautiful professional looking nails from the comfort of your own home. Using a cuticle oil regularly is wise because you really have to rough your nails up a lot.

Guys. I’ve learned something that broke my heart. The sun damages your hair! -insert a thousand broken heart emojis. – I knew that the sun could hurt your eyes and your skins but never would I have thought it would damage your hair. If I had to pick my favorite physical thing about myself it would be my hair. I mean it is the most low maintenance thing about me! If it gets too damaged I’m going to need to put more time and effort into it. Yes my fear is stemmed from laziness.
What happens when the sun damages hair?
So the sun can have the same effect as bleach. That’s why it lightens your hair color. I knew that the sun lightens hair color. Mine always goes from light brown to bright blonde.(above photo is me in April vs September) I’d just never really put too much thought into it. I just assumed it was similar to how colors fade with long exposure to the sun. I didn’t know that while the you’re getting fun Beachy blond hair, the sun is also drying it out. When your hair gets dried out that often leads to breakage and as we all know no one likes split ends.
So the best option is to protect your hair and prevent the damage in the first place. Now they don’t make a sunscreen for your hair -please some one do this. The obvious way is, like protecting your skin, you should avoid long exposure to direct sunlight. Wearing a hat helps too. It will also help to spend less time outside when the sun is the hottest, between 10 and 2. My hairspray offers some protection from the uva/b rays (which is why I thought to google in the first place.)
Repair and Rehydrate!
Right. So if you are anything like me you’ve probably spend all day all week at the beach or just out in the sun. Your best option is to use a deep conditioner or a hydrating hair mask. This way you can rehydrate before breakage happens. I like this one. I’ve also been styling it using this Amika first base moisturizing styling cream to rehydrate my hair. Drinking lots of water can help rehydrate as well.
I don’t know about you but I’m not going to avoid the sun. It’s the source of too much of my happiness so I’m going to focus more on repairing and rehydrating. What do you do, if anything, to protect your hair from the sun?

I’ve changed my skin care routine and your going to be shocked!! Ok maybe I’m being a bit dramatic. But I am loving this routine. It’s so easy too.
Why skin care is important.
So we all know that we need to wash our face. But do we know why? Poor skin care can lead to early signs of aging and while sure at 18 it’s fun to look older it’s not so much fun at 30. Bacteria from our hands can also linger inside pores causing breakouts. As some one who has always struggled with breakouts I try to make sure I always wash my face. Makeup is much easier to apply when you skin is clearer.
Now obviously every one has their own routine but this has been mine lately. So I wash the rest with a Norwex Face cloth and warm water. This removes any makeup dirt oil and bacteria from my skin. After that I apply L’Oréal Lash Serum Solution to my upper and lower lash line. Then to help clear out any lingering toxins I spray VIIcode’s oxygen hydrating eye spray under my eyes and gently pat it in. After that’s finished I apply just a tiny amount of Formula 10.0.6 PM Perfector.
I don’t use masks everyday. Some of my favorites are from Formula 10.0.6 as you all know. But I’ve been using these oxygen eye mask from VIICode and they’re awesome. I just stick them onto clean dry skin and then go to sleep. Going to sleep isn’t necessary the brand recommends wearing the masks in the evening before you go to bed for 6-8 hours but you can wear them 2-4 hours if you feel uncomfortable sleeping with them on. For best results, the brand recommends 3 treatments per week and 3 boxes for a full course treatment
Like I said everyone has their own routine and skin care favorites. so please share with me yours in the comments below.

I have been trying out L’Oréal lash serum solution eyelash serum and it’s amazing!!! This serum is a quick and easy way to get longer fuller lashes with out the need for expensive mascara or itchy false lashes. I love the false lash look but strip lashes kind of annoy me. I feel like they’re difficult to apply correctly and itchy so a serum that’s meant to
For transparency I do need to let you know that I didn’t pay for this. I was gifted this product from L’Oréal and Influenster in exchange for an honest review on L’Oréal and Influenster’s websites. I was not asked to write a blog post but I really wanted to tell you about it.
What is it?
This is a serum to condition and nourish your lashes with glycerin, pro vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, madecassoside and arginine. This gentle serum is safe for sensitive eyes, and contact lenses.
How do I use it?
This serum is so easy to use. Simply twist the bottom until the product appears then let it click 5 times and apply to lash line. This product works best when used 2x daily for 4 weeks. You should let it dry for at least 60 seconds before applying mascara.
Would I recommend this to a friend?
Short answer, yes. I’m loving this, it works and is super easy to apply. It’s also very affordable at around $15. I love that this is a trustworthy brand too. I felt confident in applying with out researching what exactly was in this.
If long thick eyelashes are something you want then you should give this a try. Let me know in the comments what if anything do you use to make your lashes look longer?
