Makeup Geek Blush First Impressions & Swatches!

Hi My Loves!!

I have a review for you today on the Makeup Geek blushes. I have heard so many amazing things about these. They have a nice range of colors, however the unfortunate part is that most of the colors are out of stock. I'm hoping they will be in stock soon because there are some gorgeous colors! These are very affordable at $12.99 for the compacts and $9.99 for the pans. You can purchase the palette to hold the pans separately for $20.00.

GET YOURS HERE!

These blushes are cruelty, paraben and talc free as well.

Here's the colors that I chose. The packaging is simple. I like the fact that it's clear on top so you can see the color without having to open it. The color is labeled on the back and it's easy to open.

TOP: Love Affair, Hanky Panky, Honeymoon
BOTTOM: Infatuation & Smitten

These blushes are smooth and pigmented. There are a few that stand out to me more than others. The Honeymoon is so beautiful and sparkly. It swatches so nicely. It's my favorite out of them all. Hanky Panky is so pretty as well, if you like a cool toned pink. They are all really nice though. Great quality for an affordable price. 


Love Affair ~ Intense pink, coral. 

Infatuation ~ Medium matte terracotta.

Hanky Panky ~ Medium Rosy Pink

Smitten ~ Pale creamy apricot.

Honeymoon ~ Light pink with mauve undertones and silver flecks.


Honeymoon is my FAVE!!!

Blonde to Brunette!

Hi My Loves!!

I have had so many people asking me about what I used to go from Blonde to Brunette. I decided to make a video just explaining what I used and how I did it. I hope it helps.

I figured I would add a few photos to show you my before and after and what the color looks like in the tube, as I didn't have any more of it.


BEFORE:

AFTER:


Here's what I used:
Paul Mitchell The Color 1/3 5WB, 1/3 6R & 1/3 6G mixed with 20 volume cream developer on my roots and 1/3 6WB, 1/3 6R & 1/3 6G on my ends. I left it on for 35 minutes. I purchased mine at my local Cosmo Prof.

5WB


6G


6R

6WB



The nice thing about going darker is that I instantly feel more festive ;) Haha no but it really is fun to change it up every now and then. I have been blonde now for so long, so it's nice to look in the mirror and see something different. This color also makes my hair look and feel healthier and it's so much more shiny now. If you are feeling like you need a change, try it! Post a picture on my Twitter or Facebook page. I would love to see!

Also, if you want more hair inspiration… check out my Hair Throughout the Years Blog Post. It shows some of the many colors I have had in my life ;)

Thanks for reading!

First Invisalign Blog Post: Before Pictures!

Disclosure -- I am an Invisalign® Spokesperson and all opinions expressed are my own. Full disclosure: http://www.invisalign.com/pages/spokespersondisclosure

Hi My Loves!!!

As most of you know, I have partnered up with Invisalign® clear aligners to straighten my teeth and I couldn't be more excited. 

In case you are not familiar with it, Invisalign is a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners that gradually move teeth over time, so hardly anyone even notices when someone is in treatment. What I'm most excited for with Invisalign, is that it discreetly straightens teeth without the hassle and look of traditional wire and bracket braces. For me, this means no interference in my professional or personal life from a mouth full of metal.

 I will be sharing my experiences and journey with all of you through videos and blog posts, so that you can see the changes and I can keep a great diary of how I'm feeling through this huge change in my life.

Watch this video to see a little back story about me and my teeth :)

I had my first consultation that consisted of taking pictures of my teeth, smile and profile. I had x-rays and I also had the iTero scan which takes individual pictures of every single tooth to create a 3D image of your entire teeth/smile, without all that nasty goopy goop that makes a mold of your teeth. All together, it took about two hours for the appointment after all of the chatting with the orthodontist about my expectations, treatment, what to expect and procedures. It was very comfortable and nothing hurt or was irritating to get done with the x-rays and iTero scan.

I'm going to share a couple of the pictures of my smile and profile. You will have to excuse my greasy skin in these pictures. I swear every time I travel my skin gets so oily! So just pretend like you don't see that :) You will notice in the picture below…my delightful tooth hole. I had it removed a while ago as it couldn't be saved due to a bad break, and seeing as I was planning on getting my teeth straightened, they told me to just leave the hole as it would fill in once I straightened them. So I have been dealing with that ever since. It's not my most favorite part of my smile, but hey…why not add that to the whole shebang of crookedness going on. So this is my before. Let's hope that by the time I have finished with my treatment, my after pictures will be so fabulous that I won't ever stop smiling ;)




I'm not sure why blogger is automatically making my pictures look like I have no pores or wrinkles? Does anyone know why it does this? It looks like I use photoshop or blur something or other, which I don't… Weird!

So that's really all I have today. Please watch my latest video update to find out what else we spoke about at my first Invisalign appointment. 

Thanks so much for reading/watching.
