Review: Coconut Body Butter

Review: Coconut Body Butter

I love Trader Joe’s. I purchased this product about 2 weeks ago.

I like to use a product for a while so I can give my true opinion of it.

The packaging is super simple, you can fit all your fingers in it to grab a handful

out.

This is a thick, smooth, buttery, body cream that’s made with pure coconut oil and other natural,

skin-soothing ingredients, like aloe vera, shea butter and vitamin E.

The Body Butter smells amazing! Reminds me of summer.

Every morning I apply it all over my skin and it keeps me feeling moisturized throughout

the day. Definitely would recommend using this, especially after a nice body scrub!

I have seen similar products, with the same ingredients and the go for over $20, this one was only $4.99!!!

RATINGS: 5/5

Something about MATTE

I love matte shadows! When I saw this palette I HAD to have it!!!

The palette below is from Tarte Cosmetics 

 STEPS:

Before applying the shadow make sure to prime your eyes with and eyeshadow base,

this will keep your eyeshadow looking fresh the whole day! 

1. Using a flat brush apply #1 right below your brow for your highlight.

2. Then take the #2 color and apply across your lower lid.

3. I like to add a tiny bit of color so I added the purple #3 to the outer corner of my eye. Use a blending brush to do this.

4. Then blend the purple using the brown shadow #4 and a blending brush. brush up towards your crease.

5.To blend all the colors together use #5 a soft brown in your crease.

6.Use the eyeliner it comes with in your waterline, And smoke out the liner using the purple shadow #3.

7. Line your eye with the #4 color using an angle brush. Wet the brush a little bit with fix+ spray from MAC.This will help you get a ore precise line.

8. Then we add the lashes!!! using DUO, and I used bubble gum lashes from Alash

Makeover Monday- Softer& Brighter Highlights

July 7, 2013

Softer & Brighter Highlights

Meet my friend Jen! She typically gets highlights but this time wanted to venture out a little and try the ombre effect. I added on to her existing highlights to blend in more & brighten her up giving an ombre effect. Love her results!

The Cut: Trim and layers

The Color: Brigher, blended highlights, keeping the tone golden

The Style: Heat protectant with serum throughout the ends, I love Kerastase Elixir Ultime, thick and absorbs right in the hair making it soft and shiny. I curled with Hot tools 1 inch taking random sections

Natural Auburn Highlights

July 2, 2013

My client had about 2 inches of regrowth, natural dark brown/black and her ends had a washed out color. I evened out her hair just by adding a half head of auburn and copper brown highlights. I alternated both colors to have a natural, softly blended look. She didn’t have much layers so I added medium length. Looks beautiful!
