Champagne Pop by Becca & Jaclyn Hill 

hey dolls! 

Today I’m going to be talking about the most talked about highlighter right now! CHAPAGNE POP!!!! A collaboration between Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill, a very well known beauty you tuber and makeup artist.It is exclusively available on Sephora.com now and will be available in stores June 16th. It did sell out online the first day but they just restocked and is now back in stock! Keep in mind it’s limited edition so it will not be available for much longer! This highlight is soft white with a hint of gold with some peach undertones! I love how amazing it is on the skin and the pigmentation is just phenomenal! One swipe and you have a fleektastic highlight!  What I like using this product for is my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and my Cupid’s bow! When I first saw this highlight I was very hesitant just because I am a little tanner and most people were saying that this highlight was geared towards the ladies who are very faired skin but I didn’t let that interfere with the fact that I needed champagne pop in my life! When I swiped that first stroke on my face I was like YESSSS HIGHLIGHT ON FLEEK! It literally just shimmered and glowed like the heavens! I totally recommend this highlight for people with fair to medium skin and for my dark skin girls I say Topaz would just look STUNNING ON YOU! Another one of my favorites by Becca! These highlighters do retail for $38 a pop so it is on the pricey side but if you want to invest in a highlighter I say this is the one! I hope this review helped you all who are hesitant! Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!

   As you can see on my tan arms very pigmented! 
Here I’m wearing it everywhere! On my cheekbones, inner teatduct, the middle of my eye lid, the bridge of my nose, and above my eyebrows! 

 

June Beauty Favorites 2015!

Happy Friday dolls!

Today I wanted to share my ultimate beauty favorites in the month of June, I do not have many but the ones that I am going to be talking about are worth the purchase.

Laura Geller Ballerina

So towards the end of May I was desperately looking everywhere for the Laura Geller highlighters because I saw Amrezy, a well known makeup artist raving about them. The one that she raved about was Gilded Honey but that one was not in stock at my local Ulta so I opted out for Ballerina because it looked gorgeous swatched and had a stunning pink undertone going on. I will be going more in depth on highlighters soon here on my website so stay tuned for that! If you are on the hunt for really pigmented highlighters I really do recommend these bad boys, you can only find them at Ulta for $26.

Mac Velvet Teddy & Pacific Gloss in Opal

Summer is all about sticking to that natural glowing from within look so I had to make sure that I had an alternative option from those bright corals we all love in the summer! I had invested in Mac’s Velvet Teddy a few months ago but just kept it shacked up in my lipstick collection when I finally came across it I thought Girl! No need to look no more because you have the perfect nude natural color right in front of you, I am not a huge fan of glosses because I hate how sticky they can get but this pacifica gloss was the perfect gloss, not too sticky and perfectly pigmented so what I did was apply that over Velvet Teddy and BAMN I had the perfect summer natural combo!

MAC Velvet Teddy- $16

Pacific Gloss in Opal- $12

KLORANE Dry Shampoo

The past few months I have been testing different dry shampoos because I am trying so hard not to wash my hair every day, I do not know what it is but I just hate the feeling of not having washed hair every single day. FYI, it is not a good thing to wash your hair every single day especially if you have color in your hair the last thing you want to do is wash your freshly colored 200 plus dollar balayage down the drain literally.. Anyways, I have tried so many different dry shampoos and I can say this is by far my favorite one because it smells amazing, my hair feels refreshed and it does not leaving white in your hair which is something I HATE because I have jet black hair and I do not want any white in my hair. This dry shampoo has oat milk to soothe and protect and corn and rice starches to absorb excess oils. It also adds volume and texture to revive the hair and make it look like its fresh out of the shower! The product is a French product as well!

TOTALLY TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE!

You can find it at Sephora for $20.00

Ardell Lashes 203

I am a lashaholic… Like.. I cannot even deny that I will spend MONEY on lashes and you want to know why? BECAUSE MAMA HAS NO DAMN LASHES! I love using Ardell because they are inexpensive and I do not have to worry about being super careful with them because its not like they are a pair of velour mink lashes that range from $35-40 a pair.I have been loving these because they are super fluffy and semi dramatic, they just go perfect with a smokey/dramatic eye.

You can find these at Ulta for about $4!

Liquid Lipsticks (Anastasia Beverly Hills Neon Coral & Stila Patina)

YAZZZ, my favorite part of favorites LIPSTICKS! I love me some bomb ass liquid lipsticks. I am a ride or die ABH fan so you know I had to purchase like all my favorite ones, Neon Coral just spoke to me so much because it just screams a fun summer night out! Stila Patina on the other hand is my go to comfort zone favorite color, it can easily go with a dramatic eye or a very natural eye look.

Anastasia Bevery Hills Lipsticks – $20

Stila Liquid Lipstick- $22

LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST!

Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap

This has been my go to face wash at the moment! I went to Ulta 2 months ago in hopes of finding something that would save my face! I have been wearing makeup almost every day and I felt like my face was just getting worse and I must say I do not have bad skin THANK GOODNESS! but what I do suffer from is redness on my cheeks. When I went into Ulta I talked to one of the girls who works there and we found something that she said would work well with my redness and sensitive areas. Mario products can be a little bit pricey but luckily this one was only $12.00 and it is pretty big and full for having it for two months! It is meant for soothing the redness as well as leaving it soft and smooth and it did just that for me. One tip I can give you guys who wear a lot of makeup is to go in with a makeup removing wipe and remove the first layer of makeup and once your face looks like it is makeup free go ahead and wash it with your cleanser for that awesome deep cleaning that your skin should be getting!

Mario Badescu Rose Water

AHHHH I DIE for this stuff! It basically is a refreshing, hydrating mist that can be applied any time of the day, to set your makeup , or even on your hair when it gets a little dry. And! it smells AMAZING! This is perfect spray for the summer because we all have those moments throughout a summer day where we are just so dehydrated and exhausted so we want to make sure that we bring back some life back into our faces! You can find this bad boy at Ulta for $7!

Glowy Peach Summer Look! 

Hey dolls! 

I wanted to share this look with you guys because I feel like it is just so summer time appropriate! We all LOVE a nice glow dewy JLO look don’t we? So I went ahead and gathered a bunch of inspiration and came up with this look!   

  
For my skin I started off moisturizing and using a little bit of Cucumber Mac Fix + to add a little refresher to my face! 

On my face I used:

Too Faced Hangover Primer 

Born This Way Foundation 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit 

Milani Luminoso Blush with Laura Geller Ballerina Highlight and I added that highlight on different parts of my face to add onto the glow! 

My eyes: 

Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette 

Ardell 203 Lashes 

Lips: 

NYX Intense Butter Gloss lipstick in sorbet! I LOVE this lippie product because it had just enough gloss nothing to sticky but the color pigmentation is amazing!

The MOST important food tip when losing weight

Hello Friends! 

2015 was all about me focusing on my  my health and fitness routine. I must say this is definitely the first year ever I have stuck 6 months straight following my meal plan and gym plan. My goal is to finish it off strong until the end of the year and continue to build on it for 2016. People constantly ask me how I lost so much weight so fast and it’s quite simple you just have to really be committed to it. My number one tip for anyone trying to shed off some weight is to EAT VERY HEALTHY. You can work out as much as possible but if you aren’t eating the right food than your workouts will be pointless. I plan on getting more into my fitness plan but that will be in a later post! So you might ask yourself “how do I even begin eating healthy?” My number one tip is to cut off all sugar drinks(soda, juices with sugar, those yummy fraps and Starbucks drinks everyone loves,milkshakes etc) I’ve cut soda out of my life since 2010 and I do not miss it whatsoever. Trust me when I say this CUTTING soda out DOES MAKE A BIG difference. My suggestion is to drink as much water as you can a day. I usually like to buy the biggest Smart Water they have which is 1 Liter and usually I drink it all throughout the day. The days I do go to the gym I drink 2 bottles sounds like a lot right? But the more active you are the more water your body needs. If you think drinking water is a pain then just add some fruits in the mix and it will add back some flavor. Now if you need a little more sugar and juices in your life than head on over to Whole Foods and try out their natural juices and their freshly squeezed orange juice which have no sugar besides the sugar in oranges. Or if you are crazy health nut like me go out and buy your favorite fruits and vegetables and make your own juice or smoothie. A place I love is Tropical Smoothie, they have a specific  smoothie called detox green which has no added sugars except the sugars from the fruits in it. This is the only drink I buy outside of my own stuff I make and the juices from whole foods! If you are trying hard to lose weight do NOT give up! I know at first you will not see any results but trust me if you keep pushing you will see results and never stop and your body is going to thank you for it! 
Xoxo  

 

Beauty Must Have Product of the Week! 6/23-6/27

Hello my friends!

I know it has been forever since I last posted on my blog and I feel terrible because my blog was such a HUGE part of my beauty/makeup journey and I definitely feel like I neglected it for my channel. Nonetheless, I am so happy to be back on here because I am going to be posting so many things for you guys, beauty related and none beauty related! To conclude this little side note I do not know how many of you guys noticed but I am now a proud owner of my domain themexicanbeauty.com! AHHHH! I am just so happy about it like I can officially call that domain MINE MINE MINE!

FullSizeRender

Anyways! Moving on to the real reason I am doing this post and that is on my current obsession at the moment which are the brand NEW LIMITED EDITION MAC FIX , there are 5 out right now and what is unique about them is the fact that they all have a different scent (Lavender, Rose, Cucumber,Yuzu, and Coconut) These all just scream summer and have such a fresh scent to them. So as you all know my crazy ass went to smell them all the day they came out. Another excuse was that my regular one was nowhere to be found which perhaps was a good thing because I wouldn’t feel too guilty buying another one! haha As I ran into the store to check them out everyone was looking at me like I was crazy but you know me I could give two fuckss. (excuse my language) Then, I just started spraying each one at a time to soak in the smell, as we all know everyone reacts to smells differently and I knew i was going to stay away from Rose and Coconut because I already own products with those two. In my opinion the Yuzu smelled TERRIBLE so I narrowed it down to lavender and cucumber. I ended up taking cucumber because it smelled AMAZING, it was such a refreshing scent and I knew that misting that on my brushes,sponges and face would just be fantastic for the summer. These Mac Fix + retail for $22 but if you have a Mac Pro card you can definitely get a nice little discount.

Here are some tips on when to apply Mac Fix Plus+

1) Spraying some on your foundation brush before applying foundation can give you that dewy & refreshing look for my dry to normal skin girls.

2) Using a sponge such as a beauty blender and misting some Fix Plus over your highlight so it pops a tad more if you are into that whole glowy look.

3) To set your foundation or before your whole makeup process spraying some can refresh your face ( Make sure you apply 12” away from face)

3) Apply some onto your shadow brush to give your eyeshadow more of a metallic look!

4) Fix Plus helps thin out thick, creamy products like gel eyeliner to make the apply smoother.

5) If you have a foundation that you really enjoy but is too thick for your liking you can dilute it with Fix Plus to make it more sheer.

I hope these tips were useful for you guys! If you have never tried Mac Fix Plus GO CHECK OUT THESE BRAND NEW ONES! i am sure you will find a scent you obsess over!

A fun Gold Makeup look!

Hey dolls!
Today I am going to be talking about this look that I’ve been so into lately and it’s this gold brown look with a wing! I want to start off by saying that if it wasn’t for my Sigma E65 and my Maybelline gel liner these wings I got going on would not look like this! I totally recommend this products if you are trying to make wings happen! I use a gold nyx pigment on my lid which you can find at ulta for $2.99 which is amazing! They have about 20 pigments so far I have 8 and I’m just so obsessed! I do recommend you apply them with Mac Fix Plus for that extra shimmer! And on my crease I have chocolate by Anastasia Beverly Hills I am just so obsessed with her shadows! My blush is by Milani in the shade corallina and my lipstick is Amorous by Mac! If there is one thing I really encourage you to get it is this lipstick it is just so amazing and I really can’t live without it! I hope you guys find some inspiration from this look!

Enjoy!
