#BarefacedWednesdays: Marianna Hewitt

Image
Hi beauts! Today's barefaced muse is fellow beauty blogger and inspiration, Marianna Hewitt. She snapped this barefaced selfie a couple days ago while in Thailand. Her skin looks absolutely amazing, and it is always refreshing to see beautiful women, look just as beautiful without makeup. She, too, believes in minimal make-up! On the right, she has her go-to summer glowy make-up going on, which I absolutely love. It looks natural and fresh. If you haven't check out Marianna's blog, La La Mer, definitely don't miss out!

Pretty iPhone Cases from VelvetCaviar.com

So if you can recall, I was looking for a phone case for my new iPhone5c. Well, I ended up purchasing a White Chanel Lego bag-inspired case from Velvet Caviar . They had a 20% discount promotion at the time, so it was the best deal out of all the other retailers.  Isn't it dreamy?! I love how crisp the white is. I had a hard time debating between the other colors it came in (black, light pink, yellow, and hot pink), but I was super thrilled with the white. It's especially pretty because the case has a glossy finish. An additional nice feature about this case is the removable chain. The sad part of the story is that it doesn't fit my iPhone5c because it really is meant for a 5s.  Both the cases come in super cute packaging  So, I contacted Velvet Caviar, and they so kindly shipped me this Navy Chanel Le Boy bag-inspired case. It's super cute! And the chain is so practical for this mommy of 2! (Although, hubby thinks it's quite annoying when I w

#MasqueSundays -- Laneige Water Sleeping Pack: All the Benefits of a Facemask Without the Scary Face

I love face masks and sheet masks, but wearing them...well, it's not my cutest look! Laneige to the rescue! They have developed the perfect skincare treatment for you (and me)! The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack is INVISIBLE, so you and I can apply the mask without feeling self-conscious about how we look while we are getting beautified!  What does it look and feel like? Is it really INVISIBLE? It is lightweight and clear. It's gel-textured similar to a serum. Once it has dried after 15ish minutes, it's practically untraceable.  The  80ml jar  will also give you some bang for your buck because a little bit of it goes a long way. The sweet sales woman at the Korean cosmetic store gave me a sample packet when I was trying out some BB cushions. I was quite surprised how little the 4ml packet was, but was even more surprised to find that the contents inside were more than I needed!  What are the benefits of this mask? The Laneige Water Sleeping mask works on

RECOMMENDED: e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF15 'Nude'

Image
I have so many posts to do, but everything is on hold because Operation MiniMac failed when I realized the batteries in my old Mac keyboard corroded. ::sigh::  Thus, I am stuck blogging from my iPhone. It's super limiting, but I can do some basics, and I just have  to let you know about my new found fave. I went to Target to look for the e.l.f.  Cosmetics lip scrub, but they didn't have it.  On a whim, I ended up buying this Lip Balm in Nude. The SPF15 caught my eye. I've tried other tinted lip balms like Maybelline's Baby Lips and Burt's Bees, but I find those formulas aren't  moist enough for my lips, and the colors always seem to fall into the lines on my lips and accentuate some of the cracking. I've been loving this  e.l.f.  one though because it is sheer enough to not draw attention to the dry skin on my lips, but pigmented enough to give your lips a little pop. It's super hydrating so I can use it instead of my Aquaphor, when my lips j

#BareFacedWednesdays: Lana Del Rey

Hello beautiful faces! It's Wednesday! I double-checked to make sure it was really #BarefacedWednesdays! Today's' sans makeup muse is @lanadelrey! I've been obsessed with her since I first heard her hauntingly beautiful voice a couple years back. She had me transfixed the first time I heard her sing about a man in blue jeans and a white shirt (I was, at the time, in love with my boyfriend, now hubby, whose daily uniform was exactly that).  Without makeup #LanaDelRey is so gorgeous though! I mean she's super, super cute! I just love her easy-vintage style, her blinged-out tooth, her long red hair, and her genuine feminine charm.  Her infamous #cateye is definitely her signature look though, rightfully so! Her glam is on point 👌 Which look do you prefer? #nomakeup or #glam?
