June's Ipsy Bag theme this month is swim into beauty, and to say I was beyond excited is an understatement. I love all the colors in the Ipsy Bag sneak peaks! I don't have facebook so Ipsy bags are always a surprise to me!

Here's the video of my Ipsy June Unbagging:


This month was a great surprise!! I am so excited and in love with my bag! A lot of star products this month! I feel like my Ipsy bags did a 180 from a few months ago!

I was lucky even to receive the Biorepublic trio fiber masks I have to say I think I'm most excited about trying these guys. I have been really diligent about using face masks weekly now to help improve the texture and look of my skin. I want to be able to feel comfortable to go out without face makeup.

I got a Too Faced Melted Liquid lipstick in Melted Candy in my Ipsy bag. I'm honestly not a fan of liquid lipsticks or lip glosses so I'm eh about this currently. I do love that it matches the nail polish I received in my Ipsy bag this month which is really cool!

Speaking of the nail polish I got Aurora Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Alarm Fire in my bag this month. I love gel polish but it can be a pain sometimes. I'm excited to try this since it's not a true gel polish because it does not need to be cured. I can't wait to try it! It's such a lovely coral shade perfect for summer!!

I also received Jules and Ester Facial Serum with Vitamin C. It comes in a dropper bottle which is new to me as a type of serum. I can't wait to try it but it might have to wait a little longer since I am currently testing out a face cream that I don't want this to interfere with.

Lastly the TrèStique Mini Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine is the last item in my bag. At first I have to admit I thought it came without a lid because of the shape of the lid. It looks like a fat eye pencil. The cream shadow itself glides on super smoothly! I can't wait to try and incorporate it into my makeup. It came in a deep forest shade which is something I don't normally use often but might have to start.

That all being said I am very pleased with this month Ipsy bag! I can't wait to test everything out! What did you get in your Ipsy bags?

Hooded Eyes Makeup tutorial: Naked 3

I've have my Naked3 for over a year now. I'm just in love with it when I first got it! I created this rosy tone smokey look with it. I, like everyone have been loving the rose gold trend. How can you not when it's such a lovely tone when it comes to makeup, jewelry and bags!

Well on to the reason you came to check out my blog post! I just had to share my favorite Naked 3 look. You can check out the full tutorial on my youtube channel below:



I must always state it's important to prime and prep if you want this look to stay in place and last all day. Another tip is apply foundation after creating this smokey look, Naked 3 shades have a bit of fallout.

  • Step 1: prime with a eye shadow primer then use a light color cream shadow as a base, I use Maybelline color tattoo in barely branded. 
  • Step 2:  Take Limit and place it in your crease, the lower brow bone and outer corner. 
  • Step 3: Take Nooner blend into the same spots as you did Limit, you want to blend Nooner a little higher on the brow bone. 
  • Step 4: Take Blackheart and place on the outer crease, brow bone and corner. Blend, Blend, BLEND! 
  • Step 5: Take Dust and soften the hard edges of the smokey eye and re create space between your eyebrow and your shadow. 
  • Step 6: Take Burnout and blend onto the inner corner of the lid and into the middle but do not cover the outer corner.

That's it! Line it with eyeliner slap on some mascara and boom! You have a beautiful smokey look. I find this look very romantic perfect for date night in my opinion! Just remember you can create this if you don't have hooded eyes/monolid, just don't blend so high up! 

I love this combo and I hope you do too! Happy Blending!!

May Favorites + Video

It's been a fairly quiet year in Beauty and the Business Camp. It's been a hectic year in real life but having monthly favorites never stops! I may not post as much as I'd like to but I still some how always collect a whole video of products I've been loving and had to share.

To find out the brief version you can watch my youtube video here:


Or you can scroll down below to read and see what products I've been loving this past month.

May Favorites: 
Peter Thomas Roth Anti Aging Cleansing Gel - I have been using this a lot more than usual to combat a nasty bout of acne since I finally got my clarisonic a new brush head so I've started to use it again. I just have to tell myself that for the first 3 weeks of using it that the acne will pass and my skin will be beautiful again! 

Nieva In Shower Body Lotion -I have been using this just about every shower. I like it a lot, does the job but the scent isn't there for me. I will no doubt repurchase this again but it just doesn't dazzle me. Just a regular old lotion. 
Wen Cleansing Conditioner: Fig - I've been gravitating to my old favorite Fig lately. I just want to try and finish up the rest of the gallon I bought from last June's Gallon sale.  Review here.
Mwah Chapstick Slider - This little guy fits perfectly in my work pouch handy for anytime I need to reapply. This tastes good and does it's job. Check out me review here! 
Sweet Baby Nail oil -Peace of Mind and Sweet Baby cuticle balm - Peace of Mind - I love the scent of this nail oil and cuticle balm! It smells so relaxing! My nail and cuticles are so healthy because of it! 
Naked3 - I have been using this a lot to create rose tone smoky looks all this past month! I love it! 
Victoria Secret Fantasy in Love Addict -  This has become my summer scent when I want something that is light and fruity. I throw this in my gym bag and my pool bag to freshen up! 

These are my May Favorites! I would love to know what's in your May favorites! I'm sorry for the lack of posts what has been my blogging time has now become my job finding time! I hope you guys do understand my dilemma.

Press Sample

I was sent to test out and review the Covergirl Super Sizer mascara. It took me so long to review this due to the fact I was trying to find my favorite combo of using this mascara! I love Covergirl mascaras for their ability to easily being able to layer with other mascara. This mascara is no different from any other Covergirl mascara when it comes to layering, which I love! Click down below to see my favorite layering combos and to see how this mascara fares!

What it promises:
The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses.
HOW TO APPLY
STEP 1
Twirl the Lash Styler as you apply mascara generously to top and bottom lashes to get Super Sized volume.
STEP 2
Apply multiple coats for even more Super Sized volume.
What I found: 

I was beyond excited to try another covergirl mascara. I find that this gives me volume and light length when used alone. I wouldn't go ahead and say when using this mascara I have 400% more volume, more like 75% honestly. The instructions say to twirl the wand as you apply the mascara, I tried it a few times but honestly I think since my lashes are short and sparse to begin with I didn't notice a difference.
I must note how weird and almost hard it is to twirl the mascara wand as you bring it up. I think it's because it's a weird motion for something that I've been doing for years.

When used alone.
I feel eh about this mascara when used alone, it gives some volume and length and it does have lasting power; no flakes and no smudging. 

When I use this with a mascara primer? Wham Bam Thank you ma'am! Honestly I love this mascara to layer with. It will bring your lashes to a new level without the hassle of false lashes! I love layering Super Sizer Mascara with an eyelash primer, I like using Lancôme CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base the best. It also layers well with Elf eyelash primer!

My favorite combo of this mascara is: a layer of mascara primer, covergirl flame out mascara, and then topped with covergirl super sizer mascara! I love this pairing for layer. By far the best results using this combo. 

As for wear time this mascara blows all my Lancôme mascaras out of the water, no flaking and no smudging all day! Which is a must with the warmer weather coming. 

PROS: 
  •  The best mascara for layering 
  • Does not clump, even when layering
  • Lasts ages, but does not need lots of scrubbing to remove
  • No Smudging 
  • No flaking
CONS: 
  • I have to layer mascara to achieve best results
  • Would not use on it's own. (But that's because I know it layers so well!!)
VERDICT: This mascara has become a need for my makeup stash, even though I won't wear this alone this is the perfect layering mascara to achieve WOW lashes! I can not recommend this mascara enough for layering purposes!
