5 Ways to Wear Your Liquid Shimmer Bronzer

Image
**May Contain Press Samples**

Ok, so I took 3 different liquid shimmer/bronzers and went to town. I love my bronzers as much as the next beauty, but I have soooo many that I had to get creative in ways to use them up. I don't want any makeup to go to waste so the more ways to use one, the more I can use.  First up, an eye shadow. Metallics are so hot right now and why not do do a quick, easy to apply shadow. Put a little liquid bronzer on your finger (like I did) or dab it on your lid and smooth it out with a brush. Either way, you have a super pretty, shimmery shadow to rock all night long. Being that it's a liquid, it will be easy to build if you are looking for something a little more bold. 
Contour with that bronzer. This may be the most popular and most used ways to liquid bronze. I actually prefer the liquid because it is easier to control for me. I swipe it on with my finger or dot it on with my finger and then go to town with blending. You can use a brush or a beauty …

Brows from NYC New York Color. I Got Some Demi, Too!

Image
**Press Samples**
I was given these two beauties from NYC New York Color to show off to all of you. We all know Demi Lovato is super hot right now and her Lovatics line through NYC New York Color is just as hot. If you want to see these in use, be sure to check out my Snapchat next week! Szizzy12184 is my name and you should be following me anyway because I just crack myself up! The first piece of this little duet is the Lovatics by Demi Eyebrow Liner from NYC New York Color. Such a great idea! This is a creamy, medium brown, liner capped with a stiff bristled brush. This liner only comes in two shades. Medium brown and dark brown which makes it a little difficult for us light browed ladies. The medium brown was good to apply then blend out. The formula is super creamy and easy to apply. The brush is awesome for shaping those last minute flyaways. Love, love, love this and it's only $1.99! What?!?! To seal the deal is the NYC New York Color Showtime Lash & Brow Clear Mascar…

Madam Glam Metallics? Yes, Please!!!

Image
**Press Samples**


Today, I am wrapping up my Madam Glam beauty quest. I have three beautiful metallics to share with you. Did I mention that these are all 5-free, vegan and cruelty free? Oh, I didn't...well they are! This is awesome because not a lot of lines of polish can offer this. 
GOLDEN BEAUTY This baby is a textured antique gold. I love the way it feels when it dries and I absolutely love the color. I am such a gold lover and this will go in my "loves" pile.
The formula was really nice for me. I layered it with 3 light coats and it came out perfectly.
You do have to work fast otherwise, you will be dragging the semi-dry polish all over your nail.
This polish looks amazing once it's applied and I just love the glitz in the light. Golden Perfection should be the name, but Beauty works too!


MISTRESS
This beautiful golden bronze is a considered a holographic chrome. I see this more as a metallic chrome, but let's explore.
As you can see, it shimmers throughout …

Red Coat Tuesday... Gimmie That Red Polish

Ok, I think I am coming to the end of my Pretty Little Liars hope journey. I haven't been able to make any of the episodes. I really hoped to catch up on vacation, but I don't know. I'm sunk into the new episodes of Blue Bloods instead. Someone, please, tell me that this season rocks. Anyway, I am keeping up with my red nails on Tuesdays just so I can play with some pretty polish!! This week, I did some stamping. This plate is the Sd-PS from Dashica. It's a huge sheet of so many fun images and I think I won it in a giveaway a long time ago.
Color Used:
Orly- I don't know the name, but it's gold
Sally Hansen- Rhapsody Red
What do you think of this design? Have you been watching any of the Pretty Little Liars episodes this season? What am I missing?

July Ipsy Glam Bag... Guess If There Is A Liner Or Not!!

**Affiliate Link**
Ok, ok... I've been getting some really fantastic Ipsy bags lately and I've been wondering when the dud is going to hit. Although I did get a pretty great bag, I do have one product in there I'm not so crazy about. Can you guess what it is? First up is the Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow from the Balm in the color Matt Moskowitz which is a deep plum. I love this color. Anything in the purple family is a love for me! Like most the Balm shadows, this is a great formula, has fantastic coverage and is easily blendable and buildable. I can't wait to rock this once Fall rolls around. You can get 20% off by using Ipsy20. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer is one of my favorite primers. Well, pretty much all primer is my favorite primer but this one is just awesome. This also has moisturizing agents in it to really help your makeup stay in place. Get 20% off and Free Shipping by using Ipsylove2016. BRUSHES!! Give them all to me. This is an Eyeshadow brus…
