Nighttime Look With Milani Cosmetics

Milani Cosmetics Kiss Lipstick

This was  such a fun nighttime look. I used my Milani Cosmetic makeup to achieve this look.  I kept my eyes bold but simple, using my Eye Tech Eyeliner towards my top lid and used my Milani lengthening mascara called; Runway Lashes followed by the Total Lash Cover Mascara for some volume plus curling due to this amazing brush.

To brighten my skin I used the Milani Illuminating Face Powder; this multi-colour, multi-purpose blush, bronzer and highlighter brings a radiant touch on your skin without over-the-top shimmer, the silky smooth powder is a Milani exclusive design. So pretty! To top off my look I added a pop of color, this non smudging, lasts for hours red lipstick is called Kiss.

Soft Everyday Look with Chalet Cosmetics

FullSizeRender (1)

I love easy on the go looks that are perfect for day time but that can also transition to evening. In this look I used my Chalet Cosmetics Pumpkin Powder foundation, Bikini Martini Lip Gloss, and my Serious C under eye cream to wake up my eyes.

When creating this look I wanted to think glowy skin and effortless. I first applied my normal moisturizer all over my face, then I used my Chalet Cometic Serious C under-eye cream to help brighten up my eyes. Serious C is my favorite eye cream, it is soothing and has clinical strength 18% Vitamin C plus Hyaluronic Acid for powerful anti-aging benefits.

Next I applied my foundation the Chalet’s Pumpkin Powder is amazing! It gives you that soft effortless look which makes it the perfect go to for a natural day time makeup application. Pumpkin Powder Absorbs oil and soothes the skin with pumpkin seed and black cumin. 

Chalet Cosmetics Pumkin Powder

To complete my look I applied a pop of color to my lips with my Chalet lip gloss called Bikini Martini. I like this gloss because it is not super sticky and it is a nice color that is not to overwhelming for day time. The secret to controlling the lipstick color is to apply small amounts with a lip brush and then gradually apply more to get the perfect shade consistency.

**For my eyes I applied a lengthening and volumizing mascara to both the top and bottom lash line. As well as a pop of blush to my cheek bones.**

5-10 Minute Face Routine



I love wearing makeup to start the day out right, but lets face it, when you are always on the go, it’s very difficult to spend 15-20 min on your makeup! What if I told you that there is an easy makeup routine that only takes 5-min that still makes you look and feel fabulous? First, I like to think about my brushes, my plan of action, I always have my go to brushes from Lab2 Beauty. Their brushes are amazing, and I use them in a lot of my looks.

I gently start to dab the foundation on my skin and apply it evenly, Chanel has the lightest full coverage application, it is my favorite day-time foundation and has SPF 15 in it.

To add a nice natural pop to your eyes I first apply my Mac cosmetics eyeshadow called, Soba a nice brown, with a touch of gold shimmer to it, I place that on my eye lids and then apply my  Chanel liquid eyeliner to the top lids of my eyes right along the lash-line as close as possible to keep It natural and clean. To top off my eyes I add my mascara by Milani Cosmetics, to the top and bottom lash lines to add that nice pop. lastly, I add my eyebrow filler to my brows by Kelly Baker brows.




To top off my entire look I end things with my blush by Chanel called; Joues Contraste applied with my contour brush and add my pop of lipstick, by Nars Cosmetics called, Dolce Vita.
