Ready, Set, NYX

full-face-one-brand

Hey there!! I’m coming to you with a new post and I decided to challenge myself and use only one brand. That brand is NYX Cosmetics I have a lot of favorites from different brands but since there is a NYX store in my area I decided to take this challenge. With exception to the brushes everything is NYX, enjoy!

Here is my blank canvas:

The NYX foundation that I used was the Stay Matte but not Flat Liquid Foundation in the shade Cocoadscn0498dscn0501

Next up: HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in the shade Nutmeg

Highlight: High Definition Blush in the shade Glow

Tip: Highlight on the upper cheek bones, tip/bridge of the nose, and the cupids bow.

Mascara: This was the surprise of the day! I just bought this for this blog post and I was skeptical because the applicator is soooo small but it was effective! Get the Skinny Mascara

Lashes are Wicked by NYX in the style Tease. Sorry, a good picture was not captured.

On to the lips! I selected Cherry Skies for the Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick line

October 2016 Favorites

Here are my October favorites and below you will see them in detail!

Sunblock:

  • Coppertone – Oil Free Faces I use sunblock every single day and you should too!

Primers:

Foundations:

This product retails at $27 so it is not and EVERYDAY foundation but I do love it and use it quite frequently. I’m also a fan of the red undertone and the doe foot applicator.

Love this especially because I can get it from my local target or Ulta!

Concealers:

This is my everyday concealer especially because of the price-point ($5). The one drawback is that this concealer is THICK and a little goes a long way and best way to apply this for me is with a sponge.

MAC is one of my “fancy” concealers; meaning not an everyday thing. This concealer is more fluid and it spreads really well too.

Brows:

This is a dual end tool with a twist color advance and a spoolie brush on the other end, it’s kind of like a 2for1 deal. Oh, did I mention that this is $5? That’s a steal, people!

Setting Powders:

I like to mix both to get the exact shade that I desire

Blushes/Bronzer:

Highlighters:

  • ColourPop – Golden Child
  • ColourPop – Monster
  • Milani Baked Bronzer – Soleil* I also use this as a highlighter too

Lips:

All of these lippies are liquid and have a matte finish. Fall is upon us and I love a matte finish. Who am I kidding? I love a matte finish 24/7, 365.

Hair Care:

I wear my hair naturally and these products help keep my hair moisturized

Body and Skincare:

I mix one scoop of the clay with ACV to make a paste and put it on my face for 20mins and then rinse it off.

Well, folks that’s it for the month of October! I hope that you all enjoyed this and please let me know what goodies are in your rotation. Should a product that you use get an honorable mention?
