My 3 Favorite Adorable Korean Beauty Products

Korean skin care is the new honest trend on the market right now, and why not? They have adorable effective skin care that blows away what we have on the market today and western brands end up trying to emulate, never quite as well.

 


Adorable but awesome product number one is the Tony Moly Dream White Sleeping Pack it comes in this adorable little panda container and the sleeping pack (to be used very last in skin care to seal in everything and washed off in the morning) it makes my skin insanely bright, takes away my dark circles and just makes it super even.  Did I mention its under $20 for this miracle cream?

This hand lotion (Yes you read that right) is adorable, smells like the grape smelly markers from elementary school and does a great job moisturizing without being greasy.  Its from Skinfood which is one of my favorite brands hands down.  Their philosophy is that your skin care should be food for your skin so its very clean line.

Last but not least is my favorite Pug Sheet Mask from Holika Holika because lets be real I’m a crazy pug lady!  This is a great anti wrinkle mask that actually has a pug face on the physical mask which takes the cute factor up to the very top!  My skin felt hydrated, firmed and fresh at the end.  The mask was very full of serum and just a great fit.  Over all wonderful mask.

3 Products That Keep My Blonde Bright

Having ice blonde hair is a lot of work!  Even my stylist was shocked at the fact that my blonde after 12 weeks (this is the advantage to rooted color) was still icy and not even a touch brassy.  Normally cool icy blondes turn brassy and yellow very quickly and need far more touch up.

 

The Matrix Total Results So Silver Shampoo is a MUST, MUST, MUST for any cool toned blonde.  This shampoo actually contains toner in it and so it has to be left on for a few minutes but I only use it once a week.  10 minutes was recommended but I did max of 5 because it is very drying and with curly/wavy hair I need all the moisture I can get and apparently my hair likes to take the purple tones (I mean I’ve always wanted purple hair but its kinda against Disney Look)

 

This conditioner by blacklight is a new addition to my hair care routine.  This conditioner absolutely has to be left on for only a minute or two!  It started to turn my hair purple at the salon but my hair apparently likes to take color.  This makes my hair so icy I could cry!  Its just so pretty every time I use it.

The last little trick I use is this product from Beyond the Zone called Shock Therapy Bold Blonde. Its a strange powder that I use about every month and it just gives my hair an extra boost. Its used before conditioner and is really easy to use.

All of these things combined kept my ice blonde hair, ice blonde for 12 weeks to the incredible shock of my stylist.  I have been diligent in up keeping my blonde and now you know how to keep your blonde magical!

P.S. Hey! Do you have a beauty secret you want me to spill? Maybe a 5 minute face?  Lemme know!  Comment below

YSL Lipgloss is LIFE!

I was sent this amazing lipgloss from YSL from Influenster to try.  I typically won’t blog about the items because frankly until now they haven’t been worth writing about.  Not much has blown me away to this level… UNTIL NOW!  Holy crap this is worth every penny of the price!

 

This “Balm” goes on like literal water.  Its buttery, smooth…  I guess refreshing?  Its incredibly hard to describe but I’M OBSESSED!  Its the perfect sheer everyday color (I received 12 Chase Me Nudes) not too much and not to sheer and I’m not sure I can ever go back!

I have been wearing this gloss literally every day since I got it and I don’t think that will ever change!  If you run into me at a Disney Park, ask! Ill genuinely have this on me!  And also say “hi!!” Not gonna lie it warmed my heart to have those of you at Dapper Day say hi!!!

Shop this gloss here!

 

Love and Light,

P.S.  Next week I’m thinking of doing a break down of either my eye makeup or HOW I apply my foundation.  What would you find more useful?

Flawless Looking Skin

One of the most common questions I get asked is about my foundation and what I use for “flawless looking skin.”  To be fair its a two part process to get that finish.

Part one is a fantastic full coverage foundation that really covers. I mean COVERS! Your face should seem void of really much of anything for this effect (you add features back in as you do the rest of your face).  The idea is to blank out your whole face which will give that smooth flawless canvas.

This is my go to foundation currently (their lighter coverage foundations from this line are amazing as well, the cover up is meh at best) it goes on super smooth and creamy.  It stays really well and well it does just as it says “total cover” and the amazon price is actually really great! (Buy it here). I use shade 101 Ivory cause well I’m pasty despite living in Florida.

 

Part two is really the key to an amazing finish.  This powder was shown to me by drag friends and well its incredible.  Everyone of my friends who have tried this powder (and all my princess cast) are obsessed with it and can never live without it!   Some find the smell off putting but the finish can’t be beat.  Its a setting powder and powder foundation all mixed into one giving that incredible finish and hold to your makeup (yes this is my secret to flawless princess skin). Buy it here!

 

Ill be working on a series of makeup secrets of mine.  What are the tips and tricks you are most looking for and Ill see what I can do about showing you what I know.

Love and Light

P.S. The lighter coverage options from Loreal are also amazing, that powder takes any foundation to the next level.
