My Current Beauty Favorites

Hey loves!

In the past year, I have really got into wearing makeup. I started watching a lot of youtube videos of how to put on makeup. I don’t think I ever realized how much of an art form makeup truly is until I started to learn how to do different techniques. The main brand of makeup that I wear is Bare Minerals. It’s the brand, my mom introduced me too and I have stuck with them ever since. I feel like this brand is highly underrated. Not many people know about this. Without forth more let’s jump into my current beauty favorites.

Bare Minerals Mascara

This mascara is probably hands down the best mascara I have ever used. Apart from Bobbi Brownโ€™s mascara who also makes great mascara. This mascara brush is very petite and applies smoothly onto my lashes. The lengthy this mascara gives my lashes is bananas.

Bare Minerals Tinitng Gel

This is the only foundation type product that I have ever used on my face. The coverage is perfect for my skin because I donโ€™t need a lot of coverage. What I like best is that this product has a built-in sunblock. I feel like this tinting gel is perfect for someone who is still getting acquainted with makeup or likes a more natural face.

Bare Minerals Eyeliner

The tip of this eyeliner is probably the crispest eyeliner I have used. The wings I have created with this eyeliner is sharper than an edge. My go-to eyeliner used to be Eyeko, but Bare Minerals is definitely giving them a run for their money.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss

I haven’t ever really been a lipgloss wearer until now! I kid you not I wear this lipgloss more than I wear chapstick. It’s the perfect amount of gloss and shiny without being greasy looking. This product is always a go-to for me when I wear silver accessories.

Anastasia Brow Pomade

The only product I use to style my brows! Anastasia Brow Pomade is the beeโ€™s knees. Nothing more to say, everyone, have used or heard about this product before. It’s extremely popular and well worth the money. Where you buy this product buy the clear brow gel as well!

Profusion Highlight

The highlight is the second foundation for me. You can never have too much glow! The highlight I have been using is profusion, a brand that is familiar popular and affordable. Their highlighters are very pigmented and worth the buy.

My Current Skincare Regimen

Hey loves!

Yesterday, I teased a skin care routine in my post and got some positive responses on my snapchat and my DM’s on Instagram. Let’s jump into my skincare regimen!

img_2054

I started my routine off using St. Ives Apricot facial scrub. This scrub is the best exfoliate that I have used. I have been using this product for about two years. The St. Ives skincare line is amazing for all skin types! I highly recommend it.ย img_0762

Next, I used my favorite facial mask. It’s a clay mask that tightens my skin for a deep clean. This clay mask is similar to an egg white DIY mask I use to use. I love using this mask once a week.

After, I took the clay mask off I put on my Biore nose strip. I have not used these strips for a while. I am glad there was a Biore sample in the recent Cosmopolitan issue because it reminds me that I need to start buying the strips again for my skin routine.

img_0771img_0772Lastly, in my routine, I used another sample for the recentย Cosmopolitan issue that was a moisturizer. This moisturizer is from Olay and it smells amazing! The finish of the product was very lightweight and non-greasy. I would recommend the product and I am buying the full size of the sample I tried. Along with the moisturizer I used beauty oil on my neck to keep it staying youthful (lol).

Confessions of a Habitual Nail Salon Devotee

Hey loves!

My name is Asya and I am a habitual nail salon devotee. I go to the nail salon every two weeks to get my nails done. Going to the nail salon is very therapeutic. At the salon, we talk girl chat 24/7. I kid you not at the nail salon plans are being put into action! We talk about any and everything. Nothing is off limits. Last week we started off the conversation about my major in college and my visit ended with talk about bitcoin. Before I get ahead of myself let me give you some tips to save money when going out to get your nails done. Down below are my previous at-home nail care post. Be sure to check them out!

Confessions of a Habitual Nail Salon Devotee

  1. Always go to Google reviews or Yelp to see if the nail salon you are visiting does great service. While on the review apps they tell you what previous people said about their experience about the price, service, amenities and overall experience.
  2. Another reason why you should use Yelp especially is that there are usually discounts on there. I’ve told you this before full price is for suckers. If you get the Yelp app and check in at the nail salon on there it never fails a 10-25% discount always pops up for me.
  3. Get into a routine of getting your nails done. By routine, I mean go to the same nail salon whenever its time to get your nails done. If possible try to book the same person every time. It is important to build that relationship. I personally have been going to the same nail salon since I was 16.
  4. Building the relationship is key with your nail technician because you won’t be overcharged. I kid you not in experience the person who does my nails never charges me for anything extra that I want to get. Whether it’s a cutdown, gel on top of my acrylic, and whatever else. I pay the same flat rate every-time of 20 dollars plus the tip.
  5. Don’t fall for the up selling that some nail salons do. When I was on vacation in Miami my mom and I got finessed at a nail salon there.We got our usual which is a petite almond nail shape for me and toenail polish color change. My mom got a pedicure and gel manicure. The price ended up being 160 dollars for the both of us.
  6. Go there with a plan. If you have an idea of what you want you will not overspend on your nails.
  7. Don’t be afraid to experiment.ย I have got some pretty crazy nail styles over the years. Click the picture below to check them out.

Asya

French Braiding Curly Hair

Hey loves!

My hair was really dry and brittle before we departed on Thanksgiving vacation, so I decided to french braid my hair instead of throwing it up into a messy bun to bring some life to it.

How I french braid my curly hair

Step 1 & 2

I first started by parting my hair down the middle and wetting the left side of my hair.

Step 3 & 4

I combed out my hair with a wide tooth comb and applied Carol’s Daughters Hair Milk.

Step 5 & 6

Once my hair was detangled I began to braid the left side of my hair down into a braid.

Step 7

The dry and brittle right side

Repeat steps 1 through 6 on the right side of my hair until the braid is complete.

Step 8 & 9

I laid my edges down with my favorite and wrapped my hair so it could dry on the car ride up to South Carolina.

Cornrow Braid Outย 

Hey loves!

I have been changing up my hairstyle a lot over the pass couple of days. This hairstyle is a regular four cornrow style, but with a little twist. I unbraided the cornrows mid way to create a braid out. The parts that would braid out I parted them into two section and put a hair tie around them to create this look.

Carol’s Daughters Review

Hey loves!

I have found my new faves for hair care! I bought into the hype of Carol’s Daughter and it was totally worth it. Seriously! My curlsย have neverย been so hydrated, soft and lightweight. I waited to blog about this experienceย just to see how my curls would be at the end of the day. And I have to say there was not much change from the beginning of the day.

The difference in my alternative hair productsย vs Carol’s Daughter products

I was even fearless enough to attempt to put my hair into a bun in the middle of the day. It seems like a minor task for most, but not when my hair is completely dry (when it’s curly) I can’t do anything with it but today was to expectation! Not only did I successfullyย put my hair into a cute messy top knot I took it down and it was perfectly fine. My curls cascaded back into the same location as before; I kid you I could have never done that when using my old hair products.

My Final Thoughts

I did not expect to enjoy this product as much as I did not, to be honest. When I was in the shower struggling with the twist knob of the shampoo I thought I what I waste the knob doesn’t even work. Shortly I found out it was user error (lol). Once I untwisted the knob I pumped to knob twice and that was all I needed for thick curly hair. I was surprised by the small amount and how effective it is. Same with the conditioner I needed only two pumps, but I another just because. I highly recommend these products and brand to anyone and their momma it’s just that amazing.

Tell me some of your favorite current hair care products I’d loved to know!
