Cat Eyes using Drugstore Brand Eyeliners

Hi Beauties!!

Let’s talk cat eyes! Today’s beauty blog theme is the infamous cat eye! I figured I would share some of my favorite drugstore brand eyeliners.

Who doesn’t love a cat eye slayed for the gawds?

This NYX gel liner in jet black was the first gel eyeliner I ever purchased. This was my OG eyeliner. I love how it dried jet black and matte. It’s also great for smudging under eye looks.

Wet and Wild’s Megaliner was a true hardship for me! I couldn’t use liquid eyeliner for anything when I first started to attempt doing a wing. I would try, try, and try again until I ended up with panda eyes.

Liquid liner definitely takes patience. I think that’s why I always used to reach for the NYX gel liner. It was easier to use and dried quickly. I have noticed myself reaching for this a lot more often because once you know how to use this liquid eyeliner, it is LIFE.

The Maybelline masterprecise pen has made an appearance on my blog before. I purchased this for the first time last year and was immediately hooked! Where was this pen when I started doing my cat eye? It has the easiest application out of all the previous mentioned liners. My only con is that I have to go over it a few times to get it jet black. I still reach for it on days when I want quick, easy, and no fuss eyeliner application.

My newest obsession is the NYX vivid brights eyeliners! The wand has an extremely tiny brush that makes application a breeze. I felt like a pro makeup artist using this the other day. I ended up going back and buying more colors. It’s goes on easy and dries quickly. What more could a girl ask for?

Funky Eyeliner w/ NYX Vivid Brights

Hi Beauties!!
Let’s talk eyeliner! Today’s post is supposed to be about crazy eyeliner. As much as I wanted to do funky and crazy eyeliner designs… my skills just aren’t there YET. Emphasis on yet, because my skills will be one day. 

I was recently in Boots and noticed a brand new NYX cosmetics section. I haven’t been able to find the vivid bright liners anywhere. Low and behold there they were!! 

Every single color was available, so I picked out a few. I decided for this look I would use the color “vivid sapphire”. It’s gorgeous on my skin tone. I was nervous about how it would look, but in the end it gave my look a funky twist. 


I love that the NYX vivid brights liners have a thin applicator. It made applying the liner so easy! The color went on smooth and had so much pigment with just one swipe. 


I recommend this product 100%! What are some of your favorite eyeliners? Let me know below in the comments. šŸ’™

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading this!

Day 2- My Everyday Makeup

Hi Beauties!

img_8377
My everyday makeup routine is super simple! I wear maybe 3 products in total 4 if you count chapstick.

img_2802
Now that I wear lashes for full glam looks, I am often tempted to throw on a subtle lash for everyday looks too. Lashes are addicting once you start using them!


L’OrĆ©al pro matte is my go to foundation. Mainly because it’s matte, long lasting, and affordable.

I’m addicted to winged eyeliner. I feel like a look isn’t complete without a wing. I am working on not always “winging it” but these things take time! LOL


The last product I over love is the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in ebony. I am so late to the party with this product. It took me awhile to actually decide to purchase and I’m glad I did!

My everyday routine includes foundation, brows, subtle lashes or bronzer and chapstick. What is your everyday go-to look include? Let me know below in the comment section.

Spring where are you? OOTD

Hi Beauties!!!

I don’t know if this the usual norm for the U.K. but I am still very cold! This is my first spring in England. I have to admit it is nothing like springtime in Miami. We headed out for our usual walk and I decided to opt for warmth and comfort.

I purchased this orange hoodie from Prettylittlething.com thinking it would be darker than it actually is in person. It says staff across the front. It’s an on-trend lightweight over -sized hoodie. I topped it with my favourite army vintage jacket. You can read more about this jacket in my last OOTD post linked here—>

The Adidas pants are super comfy. I wear them whenever I am in doubt of what to put on for the day. They are actually men’s track pants in a smaller size. I love wearing unisex clothing. We shouldn’t be limited to wearing only men’s or only women’s clothing.

My favouriteĀ sneakers are my Adidas NMD. They have the most comfortable sole known to man. LOL, I can walk for miles in the sneakers and not feel a thing.

Whenever I do not feel like messing with my hair I always throw on a baseball cap. I purchased this AdidasĀ baseball cap from Poshmark.com for $6! It’s such a great investment, as I wear it most days!!!

Jacket| Vintage army surplus

Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed my OOTD! Once a week I will be putting together affordable outfits. Check back next week for my next OOTD.

Sally Hansen At Home Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax Kit Review

I have to say this review was a bit nerve-wrecking for me at first. I consider myself to be one of the clumsiest people in the world. The at home wax kit appeared to be very intimidating upon opening, but once I began the process I realized it was super easy.

I picked up the Sally Hansen microwavable eyebrow, face, and lip wax kit from my local drugstore on sale for only $5.49.

Mini Kiko Haul!Ā 

Earlier this week, I went shopping at an outlet mall.Ā  The first store I saw walking into the outlets was a KIK0 Milano store. As I walked in I noticed the biggest sales going on ever!

I was able to snag all of these items for under for $18! I will be going back to pick up more pigments in the future.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Do you believe the hype? Earlier this week while doing my weekly shopping I noticed mini size benefit products at the checkout in boots. Normally, I try not to give in to small unplanned purchases…. but for Ā£9.95 I had to give the They’re Real Mascara a try. The full size retails for Ā£19.50 so I figured this was my perfect chance to try the product before committing to the full size product.
