Beauty Review: KKW x Mario Eyeshadow Palette.

IMG_8265

Hello everyone and welcome to my newest beauty review! So a few weeks ago, I was with baby, watching YouTube and I saw SO MANY tutorials and reviews on the KKW x Mario palette. I was super intrigued since this is my type of color palette, so I wanted to try it. My lovely husband Phil caught me talking about it and ordered it for me (shout out to you Phil, you are the real M.V.P.)!

While the baby was sleeping, I decided to create two looks for you guys to see the quality of the palette.  Now this palette has a beautiful mixture of warm neutrals with both shimmer and matte shades with a pop of color with a blue and plum shade. So far seems SUPER versatile. I decided to do a blue smokey eye and a neutral glitter crease eye.

These looks were easy to achieve as I only had 30 min of baby sleeping to create them lol. The pigment is great on most of the shadows but for me personally, I wish the blue was more pigmented. I really had to layer the blue to get the color payoff that I wanted. I still loved the outcome though.

The neutral glitter eye was super easy to do and I ADORE this look. It’s something I feel like I can easily do any day. I did not do my traditional liner, I used the blue shadow as liner and I believe you can see what I mean about the color payoff here. I know different techniques to make it more “POW” but for this review, I just wanted to try it as is. Since the pigments are amazing, there is one downfall…FALLOUT. This is the usual situation for smoothe pigments. I can easily clean up fall out so it’s not too much of an issue for me, but it can be troublesome for others so, beware of fallout!

I personally would recommend this palette to any makeup lover out there as it is a good staple piece to have in your kit or collection! (Please do not mind my phone photos, I wanted to quietly and quickly take these pics while baby was sleeping).

Where have I been?

Hello world!

It’s me, Yesie Marie and I am back again. I know, I know, I’ve been slacking a bit. Let me tell you, I have a good reason for it! Since the last time I posted, I have gotten married and had a beautiful baby girl. Yes, a whole new life now!

I am still majorly focused on beauty, skincare and fitness,  but now I can add wife and mother to my blogging experience! I figured there are a lot of people out there who have questions about weddings and babies, and I am more than happy to HONESTLY help you all out.

Let me tell you, there are A LOT of things that people do not honestly tell you when it comes to wedding planning or being pregnant. Yes, it is all personal experience but upon asking other wives and moms, I have found that they all have experienced similar things to what I have.  The only difference is they experienced it in secret because they believed they were the only ones!

I want to be your online confidant, for all things beauty, skincare, fitness, wife and mom related. I guess you can call me your friendly lifestyle blogger! I am on maternity leave for a bit, so what better time to restart this blog than while my daughter is sleeping on my chest and I am enjoying every second of her existence! And yes, babies really do smell like love, happiness and unicorn dreams, with just a hint of spit up.😍

Please comment and let me know what questions or topics you would like to discuss for future blog entries!! I love a good dialogue! Also, it would really help me out if you can subscribe, like and share my page!!

Haute or Hype: Minute Review on Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipstick

Haute or Hype product: Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipstick

Price:$24.00

Can be purchased at: Sephora, and smashbox.com

Product claims: Full coverage liquid lipstick and a high pigment, high shine gloss in a wide array of colors.

IMG_9013

Haute or Hype review: Ladies and gents, this product is Haute! I had the opportunity to play around with these products and create a fun and Legendary lip look. With all of the color choices and textures, creating a legendary lip look was easy! They are full colored glosses! Just one swipe and you can see more pigment than your traditional lip gloss. My only Hype factor is that the darker colors bleed unless properly lined, but that’s definitely something I’m willing to work with!

I love everything vibrant and unicorn-Ish so I created two looks with these lip colors that reflected my unicornality (unicorn personality). For the first look, I used Foiled Brat, a metallic burgundy, Space Case, a metallic Grey, and Iced out, a royal Blue with some glitter and gems to emphasize the juicy-ness of these glosses. I LOVED how these glosses photographed and felt. Iced out  did not last too long but I forgot to line (shame on me)!

IMG_9014

When the Iced out faded, I decided to keep the Foiled Brat color but add a more neutral color like Petal Metal, a popular rose gold shade which I ADORE!!! I added some unicornaility to it by placing blue glitter dots and I must say I was OBSESSED with the outcome!!

IMG_9015If you if you haven’t done so by now after reading this review, I say go to Sephora and get these Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks before they are sold out! They are totally worth it!

Haute or hype minute review: benefit’s They’re Real mascara

Haute or Hype Product : They’re Real mascara by benefit

Price: $24.00

Can be purchased at: Your local department store, Sephora, online.

Product Claims: To Create volume, Curl, lenghthen and separate eyelashes. This mascara claims to give the appearance of false eylashes on your own natural lashes. (benefit claims)

Haute or hype/review: This product is HAUTE!!! I love this mascara. I already have pretty long lashes but they are very straight. Many other mascaras do not lengthen or curl my lashes. I usualy had to use a curler but honey, not with Benefits They’re Real!!! I applied this mascara on only one of my eyes and let me tell you, the wind blew with every blink. The claims that it lengthens and curls lashes is fact. I did not have to use a curler at all. The only problem is that it can clump easily but for me, that adds volume to my lashes!! I ADORE AND RECOMMED THIS PRODUCT! I assure you, you will love it. It even comes with instructions on how to apply (from lid to end apply horizontaly and wiggle). The packaging is cute, the product is amazing, GO GET IT NOW!!!

Halloween week at work!!

Hey everyone!!! So as you know, today is halloween and it is one of my FAV holidays!! I get to experiment and play with different ideas and makeup looks. This whole week I had to Portray a different creature or character through my makeup. Monday was Egyptian day so I decided to have fun with blue eyeshadow, black liner, and gold EVERYWHERE!! I used a necklace from Charlotte Russe as my headpiece, and was inspired by the eye of Horus for part of my eye look. The eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, power and health.

My my next look was a fun one! It was disney day so we could be any disney character. I ADORE everything disney, but I thought being a disney princess was too simple. I decided to go a different route and become Tim Burton’s version of the mad hatter! This look was created with the help of Makeup forever’s flash pallet. I placed white all over and then used some sugar pill shadows to create my colorful eye and contour look. The best part of this look was I got to creep Philip out (hehe)!

image

(Creepy, no?)

Now our next look was BY FAR my favorite one! We had to do a Tim Burton look so I decided to be Emily from The corpse bride, one of my favorite movies. I wanted to get into character so I watched the movie the night before. I spray painted a grey wig with some blue hairspray and applied tons of blue, black and grey EVERYWHERE to shade and create my corpse bride look. I was EXTREMELY pleased with how this look came out, what do you guys think? image

Our next look was simple and cute. It was mermaid or fairy day. I decided to be a weird mix of both. I used tons of pink and purple shadows, a few stencils and rhinestones thanks to my wonderful cast member Morgann, and Kat Von d everlasting liquid lipstick in Ayesha. I think this was a super cute look!

image

My last look was a popular villain look. I, being the disney fan I am, decided to do Maleficent, Angelina Jolie style. This look was created with all Kat Von d products from her shade and light pallet for the contour, to her thrasher gold eyeshadow and everlasting liquid lipsticks. I used extreme contouring to sculpt those distinct cheekbones that  Angelina Jolie’s version had.

So you see my friends, Halloween is such an amazing time of year for a makeup artist! So much creativity, so many ideas, and just plain old fun!! Tell me about your halloween looks and let me know what you thought of mine!!!!

Until we meet again!!

Update time!

Hey everyone!!! It’s been a very crazy few months but here I am, back at it again! I could not leave my blogging behind! I LOVE blogging!  I wanted to give you all a bit of an update on what’s been going on.

I am still working as a makeup artist doing what I love the most, making people feel beautiful while embracing my art. I have been out of date with my YouTube channel, mostly because of how busy I have been. That will no longer be an excuse for me though! I’m going to try and get back at it!! I have become such a closet YouTube fanatic that I have spent my time watching other youtubers and trying to perfect my vision on what I want my channel to be like! We will dive further into that later!!!

Any free time I have has been spent working out at the gym with Philip, or wedding planning with Philip. Yup, you heard that right, WEDDING PLANNING! Wedding planning is no joke, especially when you are doing it all on your own. I plan on doing some wedding advice blogs In the future, especially since I know I could have used some help with planning! I’ll keep you all up to date on our latest wedding ventures without giving too much details on our wedding.

Phil and I have still been going hard working out but we wanna GO HARDER! We have started our “sweating for the wedding” routine and will take you guys along with us to see our progress!

I have a new weekly trending review called haute or hype where I take a product that is hot in the beauty or health world, test it out, and give you my honest review on it (go check out my first one on glamglow powermud)!  If you have any products you want me to review, leave me a comment and I’ll check it out!!!

Well thats it for now, I’ll keep you all posted on the fun I have planned for you!!!

Until we meet again!

Haute or Hype: Glamglow

So, I know I’m not the only one that searches for “miracle potions” for skincare. I was in desperate search for something that would keep my skin looking refreshed and pore free. I’ve also been obsessed with anti-aging and wrinkle reducing products. So I decided to check and research on google and heard about this so-called miracle mask called Glamglow. I was intrigued, but highly skeptical. It claimed to instantly and visibly reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles and redness. I also read  that this product was created in 2011. How could something so new be so amazing? Wouldn’t you be skeptical? I continued to research this magical mask and found many great reviews on this product. I could not find virtually any bad reviews so I decided to go play with this product.

I went to Sephora (my happy place) to learn more about Glamglow. They scanned the product and it showed me all of the reviews and ingredients. I was still skeptical, especially since the product costs $69, so they gave me a sample. I went home and decided to test this product on my test subject, Philip. Phil has large pores and blackheads on his nose and NOTHING has ever worked on him. I knew he was the perfect candidate for this product and if it worked, I would be amazed.

Phil hates when I “mess” with his nose and reluctantly allowed me to apply the mask on him. Let me tell you, this product looked so gross in packaging but so COOL when on Phil.  Its literally just grey clay like mud. When it dried on Phils nose, you saw EVERY SINGLE PORE that he had on his nose. I could not stop staring! It was so stinking cool! It also allowed Phil to realize that he really did have a lot of pores and needed to take care of his nose. When he rinsed off the mask, let me tell you, it was REDICULOUS! I had NEVER seen Phils nose so clear! I was in shock! Phil was in shock! He demanded I go back to Sephora and buy Glamglow! I did just that.  There are three different types of Glamglow but I bought the Youthmud expholiating mask. I used it on myself and it felt amazing! I have most of my pores on my forehead and when Phil and I washed the mask off, we looked like we were Photoshopped!

This product is definitely a HAUTE product for me! I don’t think Phil and I can live without it. I have never used a skincare product that worked so fast and efficiently on the both of us! I would 100 percent recommend Glamglow to everyone I know, especially if you need a fast fix for a special event! Thats actually what it was created for. Glamglow was created by Glenn and Shannon Dellimore for their actor friends that needed a quick fix before a red carpet event and now its Elle magazines number one beauty obsession. I totally see why because it is now my latest obsession!!

If you have any other product that you are wondering if its HAUTE or HYPE, please let me know in the comments and I’ll check it out!!!

Please also subscribe and share and I’ll return the favor!!!

Until we meet again,

Yesiemarie ❤
