My Go To No Makeup, Makeup Look

With being a busy mom of 3, a lot of times I don’t have enough time to sit down and do a dramatic look or a full on glammed our face but I still want to look put together and awake even when I’m not, lol. I’ve been loving the more neutral no makeup, makeup looks. It’s fast and easy but also gives my facial features a chance to stand out a bit on their own. My skin is still smooth and flawless but it looks natural without a lot of products used. I don’t use eyeshadow or liner, I only use false lashes when I really want my eyes to pop and I use a nude tone lipstick most of the time for this look as well. It’s perfect for looking put together for work, errands and even quick drinks with friends or a laid back date night.

I will however use highlight. I love a good highlight. Makes your skin glow without much effort and I think it looks beautiful. Your skin looks so healthy with a nice glow to it. Obviously you don’t need to beam peoples eyes out with a no makeup makeup look but sometimes I just wanna a little extra shine (in a good way, not an oily face lol.)

On my face:

Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation

Maybelline loose powder in medium deep under the eyes and deep on the rest of my face

Nyx bronzer in

Tarte blush in feisty

La colors highlight palette

Loreal liquid lip

Nyx brow gel in espresso and European Wax Center brow powder duo in medium

Below I listed some of my favorite products to use when I’m doing a more neutral look. I usually don’t use eye shadows or anything extra like that. I try and keep it as basic and simple as possible but still get the ultimate put together look. I get compliments all the time as well like oh you look so good, your skin looks great, you seem so energized today, etc. and I’m like oh thank you while also thinking girl I’m on my third cup of coffee and my 3 yr old changed her outfit 4 times before we could leave the house. 😂😂

Product list:

Anyway, what are your favorite ways to get ready quick? Do you have any get glam quick tips that you live by?

Follow my snap for grwm, makeup reviews, sneak peeks of upcoming blog posts as well as a little peek into my daily life.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday. ❤️

DIY Crate Entertainment Center

Hi loves, so I’m back again with my second home diy project of the series. Next up in this series we built and entertainment center. I briefly mentioned it in my last diy crate foyer table post. For this diy the materials and directions are pretty much the same only for a larger scale project. This was fun because we tried different patterns before we decided on a specific design. We had been looking for an entertainment center that we both loved the design of and that fit the measurements for underneath our tv without having to move or rehang things on the wall. This only took us about a day with the majority of time being waiting for it to fully dry. So if you’re ready to get started keep reading below.

Materials needed:

(10) 18”x12 1/2”x9 1/2” crates $11 each at Home Depot

5/8” brad staples $4.24 at Walmart

Staple gun (already had)

Wood Stain (I choose Kona a dark brown black)

Wood Glue (already had)

2” clamp (already had)

Measuring tape (already had)

Sprayer $10 at Home Depot

Stain rags $5

L brackets about $4

To begin:

Put the crates together to see how you want them organized and put together. It’s good to take a picture if you aren’t following a guide for your design so you don’t forget exactly how you put it together. (As discussed in the last post where we forgot how we first had it, lol.) This time we mocked up a few different ways before we came up with the actual design we liked.

Once your mock up is done, start from the bottom and work your way to the top gluing all the sides together. Like a puzzle basically. For this one the design that we picked it was easier to glue and staple all the four side crates together first and then glue and staple the center pieces last since they connect together in the middle to float. Use the clamp to hold a section in place once you’ve glued it while you staple it down. Continue until all parts are glued and stapled together. Make sure you’re checking to see if all front sides of the crates sit flush before letting glue set or starting to staple everything down. We also decided the 2 floating crates in the middle we would add a board inside them to make 2 shelves for more storage. (Those were stained, glued and stapled in after the whole center was put together and added in later.)

Once the glue has dried or mostly dried (about 30 mins) then you can carefully move it outside or in the garage to start staining. There are a few different ways you can lay the stain. We choose both a brush and spray method again because it was quicker in the last diy as well. The sprayer mainly helped cover a lot of the table and then we brushed it out everywhere on the wood and then wiped it down with the rags. We let it dry over night even though the stain usually dries in about an hour or so depending on how many coats you apply.

Once stain has set and dried you can now place your entertainment center where you want. Now you can put up your gaming systems, movies and etc. We also secured ours to the wall with an L bracket so if anyone bumped it or our 3 yr old went to grab something it didn’t go tumbling over, lol.

Completed Entertainment Center measurements:

49 3/4″ H 48 1/2″ W 9 1/2″ D

I hope you enjoyed this DIY. This one took a little longer mainly waiting for it to dry and because we decided to add shelves but still fun and creative none the less. Don’t forget to follow my Snapchat @lolanicolemua for sneak peeks of other diy projects and tag me on Twitter or Instagram @lolanicoleblogs if you try this DIY as well. I’d love to see how you made this your own if you decide to try it. I Hope you’re loving this series as much as we are and have an amazing day!

DIY Crate Foyer Table

Hi Loves, I’m so excited to be starting this series with this first DIY project.

So I was looking around for a foyer table for weeks and I found a few cute ones I liked but they were either way more than I wanted to pay or sold out. So I decided to diy one. My husband got the idea to use crates after we were also looking for an entertainment center which we also did a diy on (I’ll have a blog up with that one as well) and I said what about palettes and we started looking up some different ideas and he came across a foyer table made out of wooden crates. So instead of searching around for palettes we decided on the crates and headed off to Home Depot to begin our projects. Below I will list items needed and photos of our step by step.

Items needed:

6 18”x12 1/2”x9 1/2” crates $11 each at Home Depot

1×12 board cut down to 56” for table top $15 at Home Depot

Legs (1 2×2 wooden stick .97 at Home Depot cut into 4 8” cuts)

5/8” brad staples $4.24 at Walmart

Staple gun (already had)

Wood Stain (I choose Kona semi-gloss a dark brown black)

Wood Glue (already had)

2” clamp (already had)

Measuring tape (already had)

Sprayer $10 at Home Depot

Stain rags $5

To begin:

Put the crates together to see how you want them organized and put together. It’s good to take a picture if you aren’t following a guide for your design so you don’t forget exactly how you put it together. (Like we did the first time, thank goodness nothing was glued yet, lolol.)

Once your mock up is done, start from the bottom and work your way to the top gluing all the sides together. Use the clamp to hold a section in place once you’ve glued it while you staple it down. Continue until all parts are glued and stapled together. Then glue and staple on the table top. Make sure both sides are equal in their overlap on the ends and the back of the board is flush with the back of the crates. There will be a bit of hang over in the front as well for a ledge.

Once the glue has dried or mostly dried (about 30 mins) then you can carefully move it outside or in the garage to start staining. There are a few different ways you can lay the stain. We choose both a brush and spray method. The sprayer mainly helped cover a lot of the table and then we brushed it out everywhere on the wood and then wiped it down with the rags. We let it dry over night even though the stain usually dries in about an hour or so depending on how many coats you apply.

Once stain has set and dried you can now apply your legs. Make sure all the legs are level and not crooked so you get a more even balance and no rocking. We glued the legs on and then used a drill and screws to screw in the legs on and secure them. Let glue dry and then you’re done. You can officially place the table where you want it and decorate as you wish.

Completed foyer measurements:

39 1/8″ H 56 1/8″ W 11 3/8″ D

I hope you enjoyed this DIY. It was actually pretty quick for the most part and it was certainly fun. The hubs and I really enjoyed it and it’s a great way to spend time together and catch up as well. Follow me on Snapchat @lolanicolemua for more fun diy sneak peeks and tag me on Twitter or Instagram @lolanicoleblogs if you try this DIY. I’d love to see how you made this your own if you decide to try it. I Hope you loves have an amazing day!

My Top 6 Favorite Drugstore Highlights

Hi loves. So I've been obsessed with highlighting lately. It's been the highlight (pun intended, lol) of my everyday makeup routine. Whether I'm just running errands, going to work or for a night out I always have some highlight. It just depends on how bright I wanna shine that day, lol. I feel like it just gives such a beautiful and effortless glow to the skin and face. It really brightens everything up and even if you aren't feeling the day or feeling well, a good highlight can really bring life to your face. So I've picked these 6 (7 if you count both of the wet n wild highlights) as my top favs so far for the summer.

My Current Skincare Routine

Hi loves! So I've been exploring some new face oils, masks and cleansers. These are the ones that I have been loving the most so far. I rotate some of them for morning and night but I use my face oils both day and night for moisture and it also helps with my foundation as well because I notice I am less oily throughout the day when my face is more hydrated and moisturized. My skin is combination/oily with lots of oiliness in the t-zone area so don't be afraid to use oils on the skin because you're oily. It just lets your skin know that it doesn't need to produce as much because you're already moisturized.

My Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser (mouth full, lol) face wash is what I use once or twice a week. Mainly when I don't wear makeup that day. Because I feel I get a nice deep exfoliating clean and it helps keep my skin clear of debris and the daily sun and weather exposure. It has a nice fresh scent which is still not chemically strong which I love. It's an exfoliating face wash but gentle on the skin and doesn't leave my face feeling raw or itchy just clean and refreshed.

These new L'Oréal face washes and masks have been amazing. I'm going to get the rest of them because I want to try them all out now. The two I've been using about 2 to 3 times a week are the charcoal and mattifying masks. You can feel the mattifying mask tightening on your skin as it dries. Really working to minimize those pores and mattify the skin. The charcoal mask works to brighten and detox the skin so it is a little less restricting as it dries. I love the pure clay cleanser. It's an exfoliating and refining mask. I have the 3 pure clay and red algae mask and I love it. It's not too rough on the skin so I am able to use it every day. I love the fact that these masks and cleansers have an earthy smell to them. That way it feels like you're actually cleansing and doing your skin some good rather than just rubbing chemicals into it.

I use Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin brush with both face cleansers but sometimes I will just use my hands if I don't want too deep of a cleanse so to not irritate my skin when I've just waxed it or done another deep treatment. But I've been using this brush for almost 2 years now and I love it. I even bought my daughter one. It has a body brush for body exfoliation, a face brush, an exfoliating face brush and a pumice brush for more rough areas like elbows, knees and feet. It's an amazing brush that is so much more affordable than some other face brushes that can run you well into the $100-$400 range. I believe I had a coupon and only paid $20 plus shipping for mine. 🤗

My face exfoliating gel from European Wax Center is another favorite. I like to use this twice a week especially when I've been wearing a full face of makeup multiple times during the week. I just wash my face, dab it dry and then apply the gel and rub my hands in circular motions until I feel all the dead skin start to come off. Once I've done my whole face I go over it lightly with my spin for Perfect skin brush and rinse. My skin feels so smooth and clean after and I notice my makeup application is a lot smoother as well. It also has a nice scent which by now you should know I don't like over powering chemical smells. Especially if it's supposed to be a facial cleanser or mask for my face.

Once I'm done cleansing my face and I've done my mask, I will apply my facial moisturizers and oils. During the day I apply a light application of everything so it has time to soak into the skin and then I can apply my makeup and at night I like to use a more healthy application of product so my skin is relaxed and hydrated during the night. I first apply the Puretem moisturizer and then some of the Caudalie moisturizing sorbet. I use about 4 drops of Julep Rose Hip oil that I received in my voxbox and then I apply Vitamin E oil on top. I've noticed that my skin is much softer and more radiant now rather than waking up with a dull, dry appearance to the skin.

I apply pure castor oil to my eyebrows and lashes at night to help with growth. I've been using this for about 3 months and I've noticed some change in my brow and lash growth it's just a slow process with this method.

Towel pictured is Aquis Hair Towel (influenster sent it to me in a posh voxbox for testing purposes and I love it)

Overall I definitely recommend trying these products. They have all worked together to make my skin look more radiant and fresh. I haven't had any breakouts either since switching to this face routine. Check out these new face goodies. The L'Oréal, Olay, vitamin E and Castor oil I purchased all of those from Walmart. I hope if you try them you love them just as much as I do.

Products mentioned:

L'Oréal Pure Clay Cleanser $6
L'Oréal Pure Clay Masks $10 each
Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser $10
Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin brush $20
European Wax Center face exfoliating gel $20

Wet n Wild Lip Swatches and Review

image

 

Hi loves, so I picked up a few Wet n Wild lip products the other week at Walgreens and thought I would share some swatches and my impression of them so far.

 

Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks

514A
Cherry Frost
545A
Blushing Bali
529B
Copper Dust
506B
Mink Brown
511B
Nouveau Pink
549A
Java

 

These lipstick go on pretty smooth. Most of them are a bit on the shimmery side for me but certain colors like the mink brown color don’t have any shimmer. You can also blend these with another color lipstick or concealer to tone down the shimmer color. They are more of a sheen finish and don’t dry matte at all so if you are a matte lover like me then these lipsticks would not be for you. But if you want to try something new, love shimmer or a shiny lipstick or one that looks great with lipgloss then you will love these.

The lasting power of these isn’t amazing and they do transfer some but for an .89 to .99 cent lipstick it does the job and is actually pretty pigmented as well. I would give these a 4 out of 10 in the all around category. Just because for me I don’t love shimmer and the lasting power is all i would want in a lipstick. But they are great for the price.

These lipsticks and lip colors are actually wonderful for the price. They have lasting power and are soooooo pigmented. The liquid lip colors literally took me forever to wipe these swatches off my arm after they set EVEN though I was using a makeup wipe. Especially the Click on My Hyperpink. Its pigmentation and lasting power is amazing. These are more creamy when you put them on and they dry matte for the most part. The lipsticks are semi matte finish which is nice because its not so drying to the lips.

I have loved these lipsticks for awhile though and I think Wet n Wild did a great job on these lip products. They range about $2-$4 depending on where you buy them and I just love them so much. Bare it all is my absolute favorite nude color from them right now and I would give these lippies a 8 out of 10. I would give them a higher score since I love them so much but I feel the packaging on the lipsticks could be better and less cheap. They have broken in my purse, tops have come off and my lipstick has broken more than once and they weren’t even in the sun. But nevertheless for a $3 lipstick they are just great.

So I hope you loves enjoyed this review. I hope it was helpful for you and that you will go out and buy some and try them for yourself. Everyone is different so you might love them way more then I do or hate them. But you never know until you try them out. Right now if you get them from walgreens they are having great BOGO sales as well as points redemption so go shop ladies. Hope your having an awesome holiday weekend.

Review: Brush Egg

image-10

I have hopefully found something that will change my brush routine slightly for the better. Now before I found the brush egg I had heard that Sigma had a silicone brush cleaning glove that retails for $40. Well I went and did some research on it because for the price I expected it to be some extremely awesome product. To my surprise it was basically a silicone oven glove and I was not having any parts of paying for an over priced oven glove lol. So I continued to wash my brushes the way I had always been washing them, my prune fingers in tow, lol.

I heard about the Brush Egg both on Twitter and Instagram. But I first laid my eyes on one through an Instagram photo. I thought oh that is just so cute. I’ve been washing my makeup brushes by just rubbing them in circular motions over the soap and getting it clean that way. (I just recently posted a video on youtube and made a blog post showing how I cleaned my bushes, lol.) So I figured why not give this a try. I went to the website and to my surprise it was only $8 plus shipping. I ended up paying $10 even with shipping included.

Granted the brush egg does not cover your whole hand and its not a glove but honestly you don’t really need all that, its not that serious. You hold the brush egg and then slide it on 2 or 3 fingers whichever ones are more comfortable for you and then wash your brushes just like you would if you were rubbing the brush over soap or in your hand. Simple, easy and extremely affordable.

image.png-2
(Photo via @brushegg on Instagram)

Because sometimes you don’t need to spend an outrageous amount for something. Especially because half the time the only reason these things sell is because popular bloggers/vloggers tell you its a great deal just because of the brand or because it was sent to them for free. I don’t believe in that or wasting money just because someone says its a great buy and you should do it. (If they jumped off a bridge……) lol.

Well anyway thats all for this review. Don’t forget to head over to brushegg.bigcartel.com and grab you a brushegg today. I’m really loving this product and I think its so cute and compact and helps deep clean and thoroughly rinse my brushes. No extreme prune fingers or dry, white hands from soap residue. You really should give this a try because its a really affordable, great way to clean your brushes all while looking so cute on your fingers lol. I will eventually post another video and blog on my updated brush cleaning routine.

Until next time loves,

How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

photo-51.jpg

So I have been cleaning my makeup brushes with Zote soap for about 8 months now and I love it. You can get Zote from the store in the laundry detergent isle because Zote has so many different uses. But I use it to clean my makeup brushes and it works wonders. It deep cleans and really helps my brushes stay nice. I have heard that if you add just a tad of oil like baby or olive oil or something to your brushes also it is suppose to make your brushes softer. But I haven’t tried that as of yet.

photo 4

photo 5

Zote is a large pink bar of soap that you can crush up or break apart to make a larger amount of soap. However for me I just cut a sliver off and that usually cleans all of my brushes. I have had the same bar of soap for the entire 8 months since I have started using it. The bar is only .97 at Walmart which is even better. I haven’t found anything that was as affordable and still cleaned my brushes as well as Zote has. I have tried other actually more expensive brush washing exclusive soaps, as well as Johnson and Johnson baby soap and none have done as well as Zote has for me. The others have just been a waste of money, lol.

photo 2

photo 1

To wash my brushes I take a brush and wet it throughly and then take a piece of soap and wet it in my other hand and rub the brush on the soap in a circular motion. I continue to do that until the suds turn white and the brush rinses clean. Then I rinse very well squeezing the bristles in my fingers to make sure all the soap is out of the brush. If you don’t rinse throughly it will leave a sticky residue on the brushes. Then I just repeat those steps until all the brushes are clean.

photo 1

photo 2

photo 3

photo 4

I washed a few of my most used brushes so that I could show how I washed them. I also have a video up on youtube so you can see exactly what I do. My routine is super easy but all brush washing takes forever as all of us makeup girls know, lol. It took about 20 minutes to deep clean all the brushes I washed here but I hadn’t washed them in forever. (Bad I know, *sad face*). But they always come out looking new and better than they did before I washed them.

So overall I am loving using Zote as my go to makeup brush cleaner. It has worked wonderfully and I don’t see any issues with my brushes or the bristles feeling weird or hard or anything like that. So you should defiantly give it a try and let me know what you think. Comment below if you have ever tried it out.

I hope you are having a beautiful Friday and that your ready for the weekend. I know I am, lol.

Coral Crush Maternity OOTD

I love the color coral. It’s like a bright pinks big sister and it can be worn by pretty much any skin tone. But looks especially beautiful on tan skin with some gold jewelry. (Insert heart eyed emoji, lol). So today’s outfit for my outing with my boys while my daughter was in school and the hospital tour for delivery I thought I would wear this fun color. I paired it with some cute maternity jeans and I took my coral V-neck and added a pretty printed crop top over it and wore it backwards so the zipper detail was in front for an added edgy vibe. I paired it with some plain white sneakers, added a few gold jewelry pieces and my black big drop sunglasses. All in all I loved it and it came together beautifully. I hope your week was an awesome one.

Models, Boobies and Breastfeeding

image

So there has been a lot of controversy with breastfeeding lately. In the past few years or so there was controversy with some retail stores that have told people they couldn’t do it in the store. Formula companies implied that formula was a better route. (Which seriously? What do you think healthy babies were drinking before formula? But ok.) It’s like breastfeeding is being made out to be a shameful and obscene thing to do. Almost like half naked women walking into children stores or some pervert exposing themselves in public. Really guys? We’re obscene now because we want to nourish and feed our child the natural way? Especially with models posting posed pics of themselves breastfeeding on social media.

image

Giselle I commend. She’s not naked, her breasts aren’t exposed. She’s working and she’s lucky enough to be able to work and breastfeed instead of pump and how many of us moms would love to be able to empty our engorged breasts the natural way rather than with a pump? She’s behind the scenes. I’m sure someone asked if they could take her picture and without a second thought she said yes. Because no one thought it was a horrible, indecent thing to be doing. Miranda is naturally feeding her baby in bed. Normal stuff.

Now I have breastfed both my children and I plan to give the breast to the new baby coming. My daughter was my first and she was really hard. I had a really hard time with the breast with her because she was bottle fed when born due to being premature and in the hospital and being in the NICU. (I partly feel the premature status was ignorance on the nurse and doctor being impatient but whatever) I was young, scared and inexperience and had people pushing me to just give her the bottle and not even try breastfeeding. So that was short lived. I didn’t have as many resources and other moms on how great breastfeeding really was. With my son I was able to successfully exclusively breastfeed and then still pump for awhile when he started teething for almost a year. This baby I plan on exclusively breastfeeding for that long at least or longer if possible.

Yay for the boobies :0)
image

Now I breastfeed in public. No I don’t whip my boob out for everyone to see or stand with my shades on fondling myself with milk spraying everywhere (I produce A LOT of milk lol) and just start feeding. I get myself and baby situated and comfortable put my nursing cover on and let baby go to town. I mean it’s common courtesy. No need for any thing outrageous if I don’t have my blanket then I use a burp cloth or just make sure baby’s on the boob and my shirt is down enough to cover. I mean kids are in public also and there’s no need to force parents to have certain talks with their kids early lol.

So what I have a problem with as far as public breastfeeding is that people that don’t understand breastfeeding, don’t have children, don’t care, like to complain or whatever find it even more disturbing when they feel girls are making it out to be a stunt for internet popularity or Instagram likes.

image
Really? Um a little to, uh natural for me.

Posing while breastfeeding unless in a magazine or otherwise just feels like to much. Whether the person meant it to come off that way or not there’s just something about a mother posing for a picture standing in a dress with shades on and holding baby just in front of the boob.

image

image
Photos courtesy of theybm.com, clutchmagonline.com and Instagram

Because whether it’s posed or behind the scenes mom has to have someone take the pic. So did you rush to get semi comfy for your stand up and pose breastfeeding moment? Because I think breastfeeding would come across better to unknowing people and those not educated on breastfeeding if you were idk sitting down and focusing on baby. Because that’s part of the purpose of breastfeeding right? Health benefits and bonding with baby. Not look at how beautiful I look while holding my child and breastfeeding.

I mean this is serious business. We’re trying to get people to be ok and not make a fuss about public breastfeeding but some people just make others points valid. But how can you look at this and think it’s obscene?

image
image

I just felt like sharing my opinion (which I am entitled to) and venting a bit on the breastfeeding fiasco that has been going on lately. We as a proud breastfeeding mothers community need to take a stand with helping end breastfeeding shaming. But please ladies keep the posed, one foot out the door, shades on, standing photos to yourself. Because unless you are in your kitchen or doing something and you happen to have been breastfeeding please stop taking those posed pics. Breastfeeding is a bonding experience. Not a publicity stunt.
