My Favorite Makeup For 2017 // Beauty and Hair Diaries

Lets's talk 2017 Makeup Faves.

Can't believe that it is almost the end of January. I survived this month! And so did you. The beginning of the January I share a Youtube video using some of my 2017 Makeup Favorites. 

But I did try the new powder foundation from Bareminerals and must say I was very surprised by the finish. What I noticed is that it is not a full coverage by first application but the more you apply, the more coverage you get. This foundation goes for $50.00 on the Bareminerals website but as you all know, I am a budget queen. So Gu-wee cannot be paying that much for foundation so I bought mine from TJ Maxx. 

Be sure to checkout my video on how I used my favorite products. 

Makeup is art, Beauty is spirit. 

Mint Lip Color // Beauty and Hair Diaries

Hello Pretty Faces. 

You know I love makeup and always love trying out new things and pushing my limits. 

A few weeks ago, I posted a video on my instagram, swatching the Bellá Pierre 12 Color Matte Pro Lip Palette. This palette is $50.00 on the website but I received it in a subscription box a few months ago. 

Some people really liked the Aqua color (but it looks like a mint color on my skin) a lot so I decided to create a look using the Aqua color. 

Personally, it was a bit bold for my liking but what do you think? Is it a Yay or Nay?

Be sure to follow my social media and share some love.

New Year, New Me? // SelfLove Diaries

Let me start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR Pretty Faces. Yes its 2018. Can't believe how fast it came. I was not ready for 2018 but truth be told, I could not escape it even if I tried.

What did everyone do to celebrate the New Year? Me, for one, went to Vegas and I was supposed to go to the club to see The Chainsmokers but it didn't work out the way we planned. Instead, I ended up on the strip, stepping into 2018. Which was actually not that bad. It was fun and CROWDED! Oh my goodness.

Here are some pictures and videos of the night.

Friends who step into 2018 together. 

So, now that 2018 is literally here, I need to start getting real with myself and know what I want in this beautiful thing, I call life. By now everybody knows that I am a retired Au Pair and I finished my 2nd year on December 7 2017. So ever since then, I have been in a stress ball. But what I have noticed is; it doesn't matter how much I am trying to plan and figure out things. God is in control, He knows what is going to happen, He knows the plans for my life and I know all will be revealed in His timing. Don't get me wrong, its not easy not "knowing" but it will be worth it.

Personally I do not believe in New Years Resolutions because I end up forgetting them. But this year its all about being a GOAL digger. Where I am just going to strive and go for gold and get what I want and deserve. A new year doesn't always mean a new you. It just means it a New Year for you to pursue your dreams and goals, a New Year to discover who you are and a New Year to grow and glow.

All I can say right now is: Watch this space!

This is YOUR year to sparkle!
Happy New Years Beauties!
