Make-Up of the day

Lady Bug Jane’s🐰🌱 Luxe lotion in coconut as my primer for my face.
👉 LBJ Luxe Lotion

👉Next I applied CoverFX 🐰🌱Natural Finish Oil free Foundation in N35
👉 CoverFX N35

👉 Original Beauty Blender
👉Next I applied my bronze Bahama mama
With Zabana Essentials 🐰🌱On my cheeks
👉 Bronze bahama mama
👉 Previous Blog post review on Zabana Essentials
🎨DON’T FORGET TO BLEND
👉 Used Milani Cosmetics🐰 Baked bronzer in 04 Glow all over my contour areas
👉 ELF Enchanted
👉 I used Anastasia Beverly hills🐰
Dip brow pomade in chocolate🍫
👉 ABH DipBrow
👉 I used Ardell Lashes🐰 Black Wispies
You can purchase your ardell lashes at your local:
With Ardell waterproof white glue
👉 I decided to try the new 100% pure🐰 Vegan Maracuja mascara in Black Tea

👉 As always I use Lady bug Jane’s 🌱🐰
Lip balm to prepare my lips for any lipstick whether its matte or creamy.
I apply the lip balm 20 mins before applying my new lipstick.
👉 LBJ lipbalm
Last but not least I ended up wearing my new Jeffree Star Cosmetics🌱🐰 Velour liquid Lipstick!!!💄
It took over 2weeks to arrive!
👉 JSC 714
The only problem I had was that I had to apply this velour liquid lipstick 2xs and 4 layers each time. I received a defective product which I will be contacting JSC today. The formula is usually amazing and lasts all day.
What I currently have on my hair is Manic Panic in Blue steel.
If you recreate my look I would love to see it!!!💜💖💞 please tagg

One Choice, One Step, One Change

👉 Lip Balms
My favorite Everyday Lip balms are the Flavors Pomegranate, Strawberry 🍓and Cherry🍒!!!! They are part of my daily routine!!! And I simply cannot live without them!!! Every time I run out of them I literally start crying because without these lip balms or “ChapStick’s” I feel incomplete! No joke! I take them everywhere I go. I looove the flavor of each.. And I legitly(yes I made up a word) eat them when I put them on my lips and I cannot help myself because they are Soooooooo good! Maybe that’s why I run out so quickly😁!!!!!!!!
I loveee! The scents they give out and its the reason why I tend to start eating them!! Lady bug Jane is no joke the best lip balm I have ever tried. Not only does this lip balm heal my lips and by heal I mean restores my lips from me constantly pulling off the lil skin on my lips… Its an anxiety thing a lot of people do unconsciously.
But it makes my lips look fuller and gives out this clear shine.
On top of that my lips feel amazing!!!
Lady bug Jane products are currently only in a few Sprouts at the moment!!! But if you cannot find them order online its completely worth it!!! I stand by LBJ all the way because I 💖LBJ
I still need to try all the flavors and will eventually buy them all!!!! But for now I’m stuck on my Strawberry, Cherry and Pomegranate favs!!!
👉 Lip Gloss
I continue to purchase LBJ Sweet Strawberry Lip gloss because I 💖🍓!!!!!
I still need to try the Wacky Watermelon🍉
I love coconut! So when I saw The new!!! Luxe Lotions I was dying to take a trip to LA just to get my hands on it!
I looove the smell of this lotion to me personally it triggers memories of cupcakes bahaha!!!
Its part of my daily beauty routine as well! I love that it actually hydrates longer than any lotion I have tried even in 100 degree dry weather. I personally want them all!!
I also love that this lotion you can use it everywhere!!! That’s a winner right there!

Today I decided I wanted to shave !
Its now Spring but out here it feels like summer!!!☀
I believe that anyone can do what they feel is right for their self’s.
You can shave if you want or you can choose just not to shave because its your body and your choice.
Hair on your body is natural and shouldn’t be seen as its dirty or gross.
Everyone has hair on their body.
Some people get their hair shaved, Trimmed or lasered off and some grrrls and dudes keep their hair.
Its your choice your body✊
Today I used 100Percent Pure’s
Seaweed Grapefruit Shaving cream!
Omfg it smelled bomb!
It was absolutely easy to use and left my legs feeling so soft after shaving them!
I definitely recommend this shaving cream it has been the best one I have ever tried!!!!!
Seaweed Shaving cream

Eight years ago I started buying Ion products from my local Sally’s Beauty Supply.
I was soo amazed that five years into it Ion started labeling which products are Vegan friendly which makes it a lot easier for us the Vegan Consumers👏.
I immediately started supporting all their Vegan options and seriously Ion has helped me keep my hair! I’ve gone through lots of color hair changes and damages from extream bleaching to get my hair super white to going back brunette for jobs.
Ion vegan friendly products have saved my hair! 👌
Today I decided to check out my local Sally’s Beauty Supply store and to my amazement Ion now has Cool blonde shampoo and conditioner!!!!!! I am solo excited because its like the purple shampoo! It brightens and tones White, silver, and blonde hair!!!!! Its Vegan and Cruelty-free and Paraben free as well! This should be a game changer for me and I’m definitely super excited about this💖💖💖💖🎉👏👌.
I will be updating this post to see if it can reach my hair goals!.
In this Editorial MuaTonyyanez used Ion color solutions Firm Hold Shaping hair spray! Not only was it not sticky yucky like some hairsprays or super hard crunchy it was the perfect hairspray ever that I have used!👌
Check out their full website to check out all their products or just pop into your local Sally’s beauty supply!
Update: March 29,2015
I have gotten that this company does not know where there ingredients are gotten from…
And they said ” Finish product may not be tested on animals” May not??? Do they just not know? There is definitely miscommunication between there representatives.👎 Unfortunately because of this email I will no longer support Ion Products. I will finish using my products and find ones that align with my beliefs.
