Wanna find out what’s in the bag I travel with? Or hear about how weird I used to be as a tween? Or why I started my blog? If you do, head on over to @thezipfiles for an interview all about my non-sense. And while you’re there, give them a follow. They’re a fairly new beauty blog that interviews people of all walks about what they use for beauty and their thoughts about it! And Sarah who runs it is an absolute doll! You won’t regret it and it will satisfy your nosy needs!
✖️F I V E M I N U T E F A C E ✖️ Who else loves makeup but doesn't always have a ton of time to apply it? 🙋🏻 Here is what I use for my everyday look and it only takes me 5 minutes! 🙌🏼 Step #1:
• Apply CC Cream all over face- this is a 10 in 1 and gives a nice coverage and a beautiful glow. Perfect for day time! I use #arbonne in the medium shade.
• Apply concealer under eyes- I make a triangle shape under both eyes and blend with a sponge. I use The real conceal by Arbonne- it comes in 8 different shades and has ahhhhmazing coverage! I have horrible dark circles, and this miraculous product covers them perfectly and makes you look awake and refreshed. I use medium neutral.
Step #3: • Contour with bronzer- you don't have to be a professional to do this😆 I'm obsessed with Arbonne's Starlight Glow Palette!! It has a matte bronzer, a glowy bronzer, a highlighter and a blush. It's great for all skin tones which is an added bonus!
Step #4: • Eyes- using the highlighter in the bronzing palette, I sweep this over each eyelid. I then use the matte color bronzer for the crease of my eyes.
Brows- I always fill mine in using the Shape it up brow pencil in dark by Arbonne. Gives you a very natural filled in brow without that scary overdone look! 😂👌🏼 Lashes- I apply two coats of It's a long story mascara by Arbonne. I love that this contains polypeptides which are beneficial in helping your lashes grow 🙌🏼 Step #5:
• Lips 👄- I start by using a lip liner on my lips and fill them in. My favorite go to color is peach. It's a great neutral nudish/pink. Then I put lipstick on top. I prefer lily. I love that Arbonne's lipsticks are make from apple and watermelon extracts 🍏🍉 And there you have it! 💜💜💜💜 #vegancosmetics#crueltyfree#mineraloilfree#beneficial#contour#eyebrows#beauty#makeuproutine#cosmetics#lip#lips#palette#concealer#cccream#highlighter#mascara#makeupaddict#everydaylook#glow #lips #bronzer#blush#skincare#veganmakeup#crueltyfreemakeup

Hey loves! Small @sephora haul. Got my hands on the @too@toofaced Chocolate Gold palette and OMG, it's GORGEOUS!!! The colors and pigmentation are worth the purchase. Also got some things that I've been wanting to give a try, like the @toofaced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray, the @urbandecaycosmetics Urban Lockdown which includes a Optical Illusion Primer (first time trying this) and an All nighter Setting Spray, and finally my tried and true @benefitcosmetics Porefessional. Anyone have these products already? XOXO Ebony 😙😙
[Routine X Review]
▪️Crecell Juicy Drop Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ ▪️A triple functional multi-cushion (Brightening / Anti-wrinkle / SPF)with moist coconut water and fruit extract ingredients for radiant skin tone improvement. Excellent adherence and coverage.
▪️Sleek packaging with rose gold and black color. With the sponge type cushion, this ensures an even application once apply. The puff is a bit dense in my opinion, but this doesn't have an impact on the performance. The shade I received is in No.21 natural beige which is the only shade available. If it's other time of the year, it might be too light for me but during colder months it works out well.
▪️Performance wise, I'm blown away by how smooth the application looks. Despite the light consistency, I can achieve a solid medium coverage with just two layers as you can see from my swatch. It covers redness and discoloration well but it does slightly settle into fine lines with long hours so might not work best for a texturized skin.
▪️This gives a soft natural matte finish with an evident brightening effect. The adherence is long lasting and great as claimed although after about 5 hours, I start seeing dry patches and fine lines on my drier areas. Do note that since it gets really dry in winter time here, it might not work in the cushion's favor. I do think it will work out wonderfully in spring or summer though. Overall, I think this is a decent soft matte cushion if you can match the shade, it will be worth checking out.
▪️Available @amazon for 37USD
