Beauty Reflections

Day 1

Once again, here I am, but this time I’ll be writing about something I am still learning about, but thoroughly enjoying (even though it’s making me broke). The first makeup I ever wore was pressed powder from Avon. I also had an Avon blush. The powder was way too thick and dark for my skin, but I didn’t care. A couple of years later, I was introduced to black eyeliner and the waterline. It became my new obsession and I got so used to seeing myself with eyeliner, that I didn’t feel me when I didn’t have eyeliner on. I felt naked. And this is when I realized, my makeup journey didn’t have an ending in sight.

I was about sixteen or seventeen the first time I saved money and bought myself some M.A.C. makeup. It hurt. I bought the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, a blush I still have (I know I should probably throw this away, but it still looks good), and a brush that the sales associate said I could use for both. I felt so grown up and so special, like these things were going to make me a better person. At 22, I now understand makeup is not going to change who I am, but I still enjoy the experience of being able to enhance and cover features of my face as I please.

My makeup collection has grown as new trends evolve and as I now have my own paycheck, but every time I swipe my card it still hurts a little bit until I get home, sit in front of the mirror, and begin to use my face as a canvas.

Join me as I learn about what works, what doesn’t, a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. I am no expert, no authority, just a fan.

  • #firstaidbeautygiftedme I had been wanting to try the @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer! I love a light base, especially for the summer. I was surprised by how creamy this was, I was expecting a much liquid formula like the @narsissist one. I love the natural finish of it though, it leaves my skin looking flawless and helps me even out skin tone. What’s your favorite cc cream/Tinted Moisturizer?#firstaidbeauty #OctolyFamily

  • Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I’ve been trying to take a break from my phone, but miss looking at all your beautiful beauty shots 😍I love using the @lorealmakeup Lumi Glotion and the @maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation together as it adds a little bit of glow to the base. Are you a matte or dewy type of person?

Feliz Domingo! Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana l! Yo he estado tratando pasar menos tiempo en mi celular pero extraño ver todas las fotos que ponen 😍 Me encanta mezclar la loción de @lorealusa con la base de #Maybelline.

  • #peaceoutskincaregiftedme these are the @peaceoutskincare pore & blackhead strips. I was very excited to try these out, but I haven’t noticed any major differences. Unlike other strips, you’re supposed to use this for 4-6 hours. It did draw out some oil but it didn’t make enough of a difference. The blackhead strip also didn’t pull out any of the blackheads. @sephora @peaceoutskincare #peaceoutskincare #sephora #OctolyFamily

Estos strips son para los poros y puntos negros. Deben ser usados 4-6 horas. La verdad, no me parece que valgan la pena. Yo no note ninguna diferencia.

  • Okay. I did it. I caved but @ssssamanthaa made me do it! I picked up the @hourglasscosmetics Illumee Sheer Trio 😍It’s a whole lot of cream and I am obsessed. First, #hourglass packaging is always on point. Second, they’re so beautiful and easy to use. What’s one thing you’ve bought because of a creator?

  • What’s your go-to summer lip? I am cheating on #pinkwednesday with @thrivecausemetics Glossy Lip Mark in Karlie 😍 Fell in love with this shade as soon as I got it and I think it is so perfect for this time of the year. This formula is so natural, glossy, but not sticky. Very impressed with the pigmentation! If you have not tried @thrivecausemetics yet, make sure you do! They’re coming out with some really exciting stuff.

Cuál es su labial favorito para esta época del año? Yo estoy amando estos brillitos de #thrivecausemetics. Me encanta como se ven, en especial este en Karlie.
