MAC Boom Boom Bloom Lippies

BARBIE'S BOOKMARKS

One way I get discounted items from MAC collections is by shopping on the MAC website.

SAM_8759

The Goodbyes section had these lippies from the Boom Boom Bloom collection. They were $11.10 each. Look at the box …pretty in pink.

SAM_8761

Come on MAC. How can I resist this?

SAM_8764Heartmelter. This is described as a rosy pink.

Look at the quality shine and texture that MAC lipglasses are known for. And that gorgeous color!

SAM_8764Cherry Mochi. This color…this color is beyond beautiful!

SAM_8772

Every woman needs this lipglass in her collection.

SAM_8776

It’s described as a warm raspberry pink. This color is Summer 2019 for me. Light, bright, and pretty!

SAM_8790

MAC keeps doing it with the packaging and the unique lip colors. I love being able to snatch up pieces of their collections at discounted prices.

Stay blessed,

Barbie

5-Product Summer Makeup Look

Dear friends, here we are! Long awaited summer days, with everything light and bright, have finally arrived. While we get some natural advantages, such as Sun-kisses skin, there is also the heat part that might get really uncomfortable sometimes. And just like we adjust our wardrobes, I believe the makeup routine needs to be adjusted as well.

Regardless of the season I usually opt for the makeup that looks natural and depending on the mood focus on lips or a settle eye. However, when the temperature gets high the light-weight-feeling of makeup becomes just as important as the visual. Therefore, I decided to share 5 of my favorite products for this season and a total everyday look I pull off using only these products.

This Estee Lauder CC cream is probably one of my favorite products of ALL seasons. But the reason I recommend it in summer is because of…

How to do a sock bun

Hairmingo

We already showed you how to create big, beautiful buns. While the DIY sock bun may seem intimidating, it’s actually one of the easiest—and quickest!—techniques to boost the volume of your topknot. Kate Bosworth, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce have all rocked the polished wrap for big events, and the elegant style works everywhere from the red carpet to the weekend. Why not try this sock bun tutorial for yourself!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
  • 1 sock
  • A pair of scissors
  • Bobby pins

Any sock made from a thinner fabric will work. Opt for a brown or taupe shade (something that resembles your hair color, although it doesn’t have to be an exact match) as a white or a bright-colored sock might peek through your strands and give away your bun’s secret.

she’s mental: Episode 1

maruschka rossi

here I am, sitting on my sofa with no freaking idea how to write this… it’s been quite a while since my last blogpost and I kind of have the “blogging fear”. it’s been too long and  my expectations on myself are too high.

a couple of weeks ago I wrote a blogpost about my mental health journey and the feedback from you guys was just amazing! I received a ton of lovely messages encouraging me on continuing with posts like this, people saying they had the same struggles or just a lovely bunch who wrote to tell me they’re there for me.

IMG_0972-2

after all these amazing messages I announced my monthly series “she’s mental” where I wanna write about mental health in all the different ways – after the announcement I pooped myself!

I put too much pressure on myself, had a million ideas in my head but couldn’t…

Self-Esteem Boosting Affirmations

The Radd Life

I’m sure you’ve heard all the hype about affirmations — positive statements about yourself or the future that can change your life. Some people believe affirmations are nothing more than a load of BS… but there is research out there that would suggest otherwise.

Recently, I was listening to a report on NPR about a study that was conducted regarding the power of the mind in the production of hormones that were not naturally present in the body. Essentially, the people who had the hormone present were told they didn’t have it and the people who didn’t have the hormone were told they did. What happened was that their bodies responded to this new information in their minds and the mere belief that the hormone was present resulted in changes in their physiology!! The people who previously had the hormone and were told they didn’t have it, stopped producing it!…

June Beauty Haul!

AllThingsAlexx

Hello my loves and welcome back to a new beauty haul, my last one I did was my March make up haul and if you haven’t seen that one then head on over and check it out! Today’s haul is less of a make up haul and more of a beauty haul as there is some other items than make up! So let’s get into what I’ve bought!

My first two items I have purchased are from Lush, and they are the Ultraplant Cleanser and the Mask of Magnaminty. These are new products to me which I’m so excited to try. I visited the new Lush Spa store in Liverpool recently and I was chatting to one of the girls and she told me that ultraplant is the vegan and newer version of the ultrabland cleanser which I have previously tried out. It is made with oils instead of…
