IMG_1274

Hey guys! It is Prom and Formal season and I’m excited to shared a makeup tutorial perfect for these events! In the past, my prom makeup tutorials have been the most viewed videos on my channel so I thought it was only fitting to make another one since you all loved the others! As the years go on, my makeup techniques get better and better so it is really interesting to see the differences in the past videos (Prom 2014 Video, Prom 2015 Video).

This year I have linked all the products so that it is super easy for you all to achieve this look!

Back To School Essence Makeup Giveaway!

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 1.24.12 PM

Whenever I go back to school I always have to get some back up makeup products to stick in my back pack for the school day! I didn’t want to spend too much money on my makeup survival kit, but I still wanted the products to be high quality. I have heard about Essence and even used their eyeshadows for prom makeup looks, but never really got to try their most popular products!

I wanted to share these products with you all because the fact that they are affordable and high quality blows my mind!

This is the 2 in 1 eyeliner pen. It has a thin and thick felt tip liner which is convenient because you could use it for a more natural look or a glam look! This reminds me of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.

IMG_3096

This is the Make Me Brow. This is an exact dupe for Gimme Brow by Benefit, but way cheaper! I love this product for when I don’t have time to fill them in, I just take the spooly and comb it through my brows and it makes them appear fuller.

IMG_3100

This is one of their Liquid Lipsticks! It doesn’t dry to a full matte which I personally like because it is not as drying as a lot of other brands!

Essence is conveniently available for purchase at Target.com and select Target stores nationwide! Essence Cosmetics is known for their high-quality products which average to about $3.50 or less. These products are perfect for restocking your makeup bag just in time to go back to school. From everyday basics to wear to class to on-trend colors to rock at formal, essence has everything you need to make this school year even more beautiful!

NOW FOR THE FUN PART… THE GIVEAWAY!

One lucky winner will be receiving an Essence tote filled with Essence products as well as a Target gift card!

TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY:

  • You must tag @essencemakeup, @so_narly, and a friend in addition to using the campaign hashtag, #essenceattarget on any Instagram picture! You can only enter once.
  • I will choose a random winner and message them on Instagram.

Basic Sorority Recruitment Makeup + Pref Night Look

IMG_0297-2

 

Unfortunately, my #HowToSororities series is about to come to an end. I have been getting an amazing responses from this content so I will definitely be continuing this series next fall! I wanted to include a makeup tutorial that is natural but will not melt in the heat of recruitment!

If you already know a lot about makeup and just want to hear some quick recommendations then watch this video!

But if you don’t wear makeup very often or don’t even know where to start, I filmed a full face makeup tutorial to walk you through the steps to achieve a natural look! By natural, I don’t mean a simple routine with BB Cream and mascara, I do use quite a bit of products! If you’re interested in seeing a more in-depth video, click here!

 

Today’s Morning Skin Care Routine

IMG_0316-2

IMG_0336-2I woke up this morning wanting to give my skin a little extra love!

First, as always, I cleansed my face with the Deep Pore Daily Cleanser using my Clarisonic! This is my favorite part of my routine because it makes my skin feel refreshed and firm.

Since I was feeling extra, I decided to put on a sheet mask, I know I know… this one says to use it at 10 pm, but it was the only sheet mask I had around. I have recently fallen in love with sheet masks because instead of most face masks that dry out your skin, these have moisturizing properties and leave your face glowing!

After I take the mask off and rinse my face, I go in with my 5 in 1 Face Cream from First Aid Beauty! This one is perfect to incorporate into your summer skin care routine because it has SPF in it!

Lastly, I put on my Rosebud Salve lip balm! I have been using this specific container since Valentine’s day and only half of it is gone which is very surprising!

How to Rock Your Hair As An Accessory

IMG_0195-2

Last night was day 5 of not washing my hair and it was greasy as heck, to say the least! I wanted to try out a new braid and was inspired by Sazan Barzani’s Inatgram post of her crown braid!

I have tried this braid out multiple times before and failed! I thought it might have been because my hair is extremely thick and it was weighing down on the bobby pins, but yesterday when I attempted this braid again, it was so much different and I really believe that it was because my hair was extra dirty! Since my hair had some texture to it, it held up much better in the bobby pins and never felt like it was about to fall out!

IMG_1329-2IMG_1324-2IMG_1339-2

I think this hair style is so unique that you can pair it with any outfit and let it be the star of the show! I received so many compliments about my hair and one lady even asked who did my hair and I humbly replied, “Me!”

Let me know if you guys want a tutorial on this hairstyle!

Mini Beauty Haul

IMG_9900

IMG_9913-2

Today I went to CVS and since my mom (the coupon queen) had a 25% off coupon, I decided to get some beauty/ skincare products!

  1. Biore Baking Soda Liquid Pore Cleanser: I got a sample of this inside of a magazine and when I used it, I decided I would get it when my current cleanser ran out. Of course, I couldn’t wait so I went ahead an purchased it!
  2. L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush in Apricot KissI have been using the same blush, Nars Outlaw, for too long now, that I felt that it was time to switch it up. I have been dying to get my hands on a color like this for a natural but colorful look.
  3. Maybelline Lash Sensational MascaraThis mascara has been one of my go-to’s lately, along side the Rocket Volume Mascara. But unfortunately there comes a time when the mascara just does not perform as well as it did when you first purchased it, and that time has come. I decided to repurchase this gem because I am a big fan of the curved mascara brush!
  4. Milani Baked Bronzer in SoleilThis product has been all over my Pinterest feed lately, and I must say, it is a very picturesque! Besides that, I wanted to give this a try because of all of the great things I have heard about it. Everyday I attempt to bring out my inner sun goddess look, so hopefully this bronzer can make that happen!

That is all I got at CVS, but I thought I would share these products since I was not going to do a main video talking about them, but keep your eyes peeled for a tutorial featuring these goodies. Have you caught up on my videos? Head on over to Sonarly Life after you watch what I have been loving this past May!
