Wedding Makeup Trial with my Nieces

 

With my wedding just months away, I decided it would be fun to do a video with my nieces. I decided to do a “wedding makeup trial” video.

It was so much fun but definitely leaving the experts to doing my hair and makeup for the big day. ­čśë

Hope you enjoy my video, and be sure to subscribe and give it a thumbs up.

My Love for Dove

Today I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to talk about Dove Dry Spray, which is an antiperspirant that protects from perspiration and odor for 48 hours. That’s right – 48 hours! I know, I know. You’ll want to keep reading (trust me).

Before Dove Dry Spray came into my life, I was using an ordinary deodorant that I had to reapply throughout the day. In fact, I would carry my deodorant stick with me. It was such an inconvenience, especially for the on-the-go gal that I am. It is definitely a travel necessity as well.

I’ve only been using the Dove Dry Spray for a few days now and it has quickly become my new favorite deodorant. I received two different deodorants to try. I’ve been using the dry spray for sensitive skin. It has a soft and clean scent to it, which I absolutely love. The best part about this Dove Dry Spray is that it doesn’t leave behind any residue, and it goes on instantly dry, while keeping my skin moisturized. The clear tone variant has the exact same benefits, and also helps restore skin to its natural tone.

With my busy schedule, this Dove Dry Spray has worked wonders for me. Dove Dry Spray sure is giving my old deodorant stick a run for its money. Out with the old, in with the new.

Nothing is more important to me than taking good care of my skin, and I know I don’t stand alone when I say this. Flawless skin is everything.

I’ve only been using Enza Essentials skin care for a few days now, and I already noticed a difference in my skin. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s the truth.

I noticed my skin felt tighter, firmer, and softer. I have been having issues with blemishes/acne around my jawline and neck, and I’ve seen improvement on my skin already.

As most girls, I’ve tried many different products… some that were ok, while others not so much.

What I love most about Enza is that they don’t treat your skin the same as every other person. They don’t put your skin in a category. Enzo strives on the fact that skin care isn’t a “one size fits all”. Everyone needs different products tailored to their specific skin type.┬áWhat I may need for my skin may not necessarily work┬áfor someone else, and vice-versa. Enzo can create a customized care suite for your skin.

Here’s how it works:

  • Enza has a customized skin care questionnaire on their website www.enza.com that customers can fill out.
  • Enzo aestheticians study the answers and send back a complete morning and evening skin care regimen for you with the products.
  • If you purchase their recommended skin care suite, you receive 30% off, which I think is amazing!

Today, I’m talking about my thoughts on┬áRestylane┬«┬áLyft┬áand┬áRestylane┬«┬áSilk. It’s something completely off what I normally talked about on my blog but since I do have a section for beauty and this technically falls under that category, I wanted to share my thoughts about Restylane┬« that I feel is important people know about. When I first heard about it, I’ll be honest; I was a bit apprehensive about it. I’m not against people getting procedures done to enhance a specific part of their face; however, my main concern is making sure it is 100% safe.

I was really bummed out that I wasn’t able to make the event Galderma hosted a few weeks ago, as I am truly fascinated on how Restylane┬« works. I wanted to learn more information.

For those of you who are not familiar with Restylane┬«, here’s a quick bio:

Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years and older. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results.

Restylane® Lyft is FDA-approved and designed for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related, mid face contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Over the course of time, the natural fat surrounding the cheeks begin to deteriorate, resulting in a reduction of volume, sagging skin and more prominent wrinkles. Through this nonsurgical injection, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid face area, which can result in a natural-looking appearance.

After doing my research on Restylane®, I discovered that each treatment is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is a natural way to keep your skin looking as young as possible without going under the knife. It is safe, and definitely the product I would trust if I ever were considering getting a procedure done.

I remember coming across Luminess Air on those late night infomercials they show on television and wanting to try it.

I thought I’d start the first day of a new month with a new beauty blog post. ┬áI’m sharing the exact brushes I use to apply my makeup with.

I’ve been using Sigma Beauty brushes for years now, and when new brushes were delivered to my doorstep, I was beyond excited. I especially couldn’t wait to use the highlighter and contouring brushes.

Here are the steps-by-step on how I apply my foundation and powder:

  • The very first step before applying my foundation, I use a sunscreen moisturizer and an eye cream. I let it sit for a few second.
  • I then apply my foundation with the 3DHD Kabuki brush, which is AMAZING. This brush is a multifunctional brush allowing you to get all the curves, creases and angles on your face.
  • I then apply my powder with the┬áDuo Fibre Powder/Blush brush. I love this brush because it allows me to be able to apply my powder as lightly as I’d like to.
  • Next step, is the contouring. I use the Large Angled Contour – F40 brush on my cheekbones, along the side of my eyebrows, outer edges of my forehead and jaw line. I also use the Tapered Face – F25 brush to blend in the product.
  • Followed by the Small Contour – F05 brush to contour around my nose and any smaller areas.
  • Then comes the highlighting part. I use the Tapered Highlighter – F35┬ábrush to highlight desired areas on my face. I normally like to brighten up my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow, inner corners of my eyes, as well as my chin and in between my brows.
  • The very last step is the setting powder, which I usually use the Duo Fibre Powder/Blush brush.

All product are linked above. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @melrodstyle, as I’ll be sharing more beauty posts soon.

Leaner Creamer

I drink coffee every single day. In fact, I have two cups a day when I am on the clock. As much as it sounds silly, I always look forward to having that first sip in the morning. I don’t know what it is but it gets me every time.

I stumbled upon Leaner Creamer on instagram and I knew instantly I had to try it. ┬áIt’s an all-natural non-dairy powder coffee creamer that promotes weight loss and suppresses your appetite. If your a coffee drinker like myself, then I would definitely recommend trying Leaner Creamer.

When Morgan Publicity reached out to try the new Hylamide products from Deciem, it was actually perfect timing because I was in search of new skincare product. Deciem launched in the UK about 2 years ago and is now one of the best selling beauty brands in the UK. AH-mazing!!

I just recently started using Hylamide┬áand so far, so good. I have really sensitive skin and I haven’t had a bad reaction to any of their Hylamide products. ┬áThe Photography Foundation is literally a filter in a bottle. It vanishes any blemish you have leaving your skin feeling smooth. I use this before applying my powder. The Glow radiance booster is perfect to highlight and bring your skin back to life. The SubQ Eyes serum is my favorite because I tend to always have puffy eyes and this has helped reduce the puffiness. Last but not least, the SubQ Anti-Age serum is probably one of my favorite serums I’ve tried. It hydrates your skin and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

If you’re in need of new skincare product, you should definitely visit www.deciem.com for more information.

It’s not every day you catch me wearing eye shadow but when I do, it’s most definitely a palette from Urban Decay so when the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky eye shadow palette came out, I jumped at the chance to try it.

I’m all about trying new things and this palette has quickly changed my thoughts about eye shadow. I love the different hues┬áit offers. From mattes and satins to sparkles – this palette has it all! Even the fianc├ę noticed the new look! ­čśë

The Naked Smoky is available on urbandecay.com, along with many other retailers, such as Sephora and ULTA. If you love a good smoky eye, then you definitely need to try the Naked Smoky palette.
