Top 5 Summer Beauty Products

bblogger, beauty, beauty routine, Makeup, Makeup Review, Uncategorized

Hello my friends! I’ve missed you. As you can see by my latest posts, I’ve been pursuing my art/graphic design goals intensely. I’m still a hardcore makeup lover, and buy just as much makeup as ever, so I thought I’d chat with you about my favorite products for the summer. It’s hard to find products that withstand the summer heat in LA. Here are some that can do no wrong:

Stila Colour Balm Lipstick

I absolutely adore this lipstick. It’s extemeley creamy and pigmented. It is way more pigmented than a typical balm. It also has a nice minty feel and smell. The color is perfect for summer and I always get compliments on it. Although it needs to be reapplied throughout the day, I don’t mind because I can’t do super matte during the summer.

Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation

This foundation is always a win for me. Although I have oily skin, it stands the test of time, especially under a mattifying or pore blurring primer. It never makes me look greasy or cakey. I love it through and through. It gives the skin a natural, fresh, healthy glow, yet the coverage is amazing. I don’t want to feel like I’m wearing a pound of makeup in the summer and this gives me a comfortable feeling. 10 out of 10 for me.

Catrice Prime & Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder

I’ve never tested the waterproof aspects of this powder but I can guarantee that the blurring and mattifying effects are absolutely there. The powder gives you a gorgeous airbrushed look and makes your entire look blurred out and velvety. I love wearing it over the Light Illusion foundation. For the summer in LA, this is just what I need.

Wet and Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Sunset Striptease

You already knew I was going to throw some Wet and Wild in there right? How can I not? They just keep killing it and what can I say? I’m a loyal beech. I absolutely am obsessed with this bronzer. It’s so easy to use. You can contour and bronze with it and it gives the face such a nice summery glow without looking too orange or muddy. I am no bronzer or contouring expert by any means so if I can do it, so can you. Love it.

Your Good Skin Antioxidant Day Cream with SPF 30

With the scorching rays in LA, you NEED an SPF and sun protection. Don’t leave your house without a cute hat if you’re going to be out and about. I’m serious. (Unless you want to look aged) This moisturizer is exactly what I’m looking for in terms of hydration and sun protection. It is a nice two in one and jam packed with good for skin ingredients. I already need a new one.

By the way, all of these products have stellar reviews so yay you can trust them. Love you all! ❤⚡

Summer Patterns

art, Illustration, Summer, Uncategorized

Lately I’ve been into drawing patterns and greenhouses. I’d love to design home accesories, t shirts, and dresses with these designs. Although summer is not my favorite season, I love the lush plants that bloom this time of year and I’m inspired by them. 💚

Mermay

Mermay has been one of my favorite drawing challenges on Instagram so far other than Inktober and Folktale Week.I have always wondered about mermaids and other mystical creatures. Deep down inside I’d love to be a mermaid for a day.

These are some of the drawings I’ve made for Mermay, originally created by artist Tom Bancroft, and I plan to continue until the end of May because it’s too fun not to.

I am trying to figure out how to continue to post on this blog and what topics my readers are interested in, using this website as a portfolio, and continuing to build my Instagram. I was thinking of creating a comic and posting it here. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.

I still continue to adore makeup but can’t keep up with all the new releases nor my old posting schedule as I have three jobs at the moment. I know excuses seem lame and I am trying to consolidate it all. Thank you for contiuing to support my blog and content.

I love you all!

Have a wonderful weekend ✨✨❣❣

Las Mujeres Tienen Poder

art, Drawing, Illustration, women empowerment

Women’s history month inspired me to create portraits of women of color who empowered other women. All women have power and that’s what my message was in doing so. (Las mujeres tienen poder.)

Some of the commendable women I drew are Rihanna, Kathleen Lights, Yalitza Aparicio, Maya Angelou, Mother Teresa, and Frida Kahlo. I plan to do many more!

If you have any suggestions or women you’d like me to draw, let me know!

What women have inspired you?

Love you all!
