Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation and Concealer

First Impression/Review:

When I first used this foundation and concealer, I was really impressed by the duo and the fact that they were drugstore products. The foundation was the right shade for me when I first applied it but after it oxidized it was a tad bit too dark for me. I was able to make it work with the lighter concealer shade. The foundation gave me a matte and poreless finish, which made my skin look flawless. It is a light to medium but buildable coverage foundation. The Maybelline Fit Me foundation was able to live up to it's claim of being matte and poreless. With the concealer , it was light and creamy, making it very easy to blend into the skin. The Maybelline Fit Me concealer gives a light to medium coverage, perfect for everyday makeup. It did not crease under my eyes and was able to cover up my dark circles pretty well. Overall, I highly recommend these products! They are very affordable drugstore products, perfect for an everyday makeup look, and has a great shade selection. Not to mention, they have two types of Maybelline Fit Me Foundations, The Matte + Poreless (Normal to Oily) and Dewy + Smooth (Normal to Dry)!

Beauty Hack: 1 Product, 5 Ways

Who doesn't love a good beauty hack?! I know I do! That's why today I will be sharing one of my favorite beauty hacks. Now this beauty hack is revolved around maximizing that one favorite product we all have! Mine happens to be the Lorac Tantalizer Face and Body Bronzer! But if you ladies do not have this exact product, don't worry, just grab one of your favorite gold, champagne, or pearly pink eye shadows or highlighters! That should do the trick! Even though my product is a bronzer, for this beauty hack I will not be using it for that purpose. And here's how...

Apply product:

1.  To the highest point of your cheekbones. #GlowLife

2. To inner corners of your eye to make them POP!

3. All over eyelids.

4. On cupid's bow to enhance lips. 

5. In the centers of your top and bottom lips for a fuller looking lip!  

There you have it, one product, used five different ways! xoxo

Nude Obsession

Back in the day, when I first started learning about makeup, nude lips was a huge trend. With little to no makeup experience I ventured off into the nude lip trend. Now, if you are a brown girl like me, you can relate when I say it can be hard trying to find that perfect nude lip for our skin tones. Am I right?! And because of that exact reason, I miserably failed. Whenever I would go to pick up a nude lipstick, lip gloss, or lip pencil, it would either be too pale, too chalky, or it was flat out the wrong shade for me. Ever since then I had always avoided nude lips.

BUT...NOW...I AM ALL ABOUT NUDE LIPS! I have been obsessed with nude lips, so obsessed to the point where that's the only lip color I wear. Ladies, once you find the perfect nudes for you, you'll never go back!  If you know anything about me, you will know that I am a total lipstick junkie and this why I am so excited to share some of my all time favorite nude colors! These shades are flattering to any skin tone and at affordable prices. Most importantly you can rock these colors all year long!  

What are some of your favorite nude lipsticks?! Leave a comment down below. And if you try out any of these nude lip colors, be sure to #picturepayal...I would love to see it! xoxo
