Valentine’s Day Makeup Looks.

Hello beautifuls! How are y’all beauties doing? To be honest, I’m not doing so hot right now. Why, you may ask? Well, it all started with my toddler having a little bit of the sniffles and a runny nose. Lucky for him, it only last two days…. but the sniffles came on over to me and is kicking my butt. I have an annoying cough that makes my head hurt and along with that amazing feeling is a sore throat and basically no voice. It’s fun stuff when you’re trying to tell your toddler not to do something and no matter how hard you try to raise your voice, you still sound like a mouse. But, I’m not coming on here today to talk about my weak sauce of an immune system. No, today I want to share some makeup looks that range from chill to glam bam take me out on the town I’m feeling myself looks. Even though, I feel like absolute poop and not really in the take me out on the town feeling myself mood, makeup can always get my spirits up and it can help me hide my sickness. Let me tell ya, the power of makeup Issa strong! Haha. So if you like make up and want a little inspo for your hot Valentine’s Day date, hopefully, I can help ya out a bit. Btw, I’m not a makeup guru by any means, so if I can do it, you can too.

I’ll start off with all the products that I used to achieve these looks. They are mostly high end products, but you do not need these exact items to achieve these looks. Nowadays there are some amazing dupes for beauty products. Now let’s get onto the good stuff.

Moisturizer: Clinique Moisture Surge. I usually use the Tatcha Water Cream but, this Clinique moisturizer has my face feel hydrated and soft. I would recommend giving this a try if you have somewhat of dry to combination skin like I do.

Primer: Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer. This has been my ride or die primer. I love it. It makes my skin smooth and let’s my foundation go on flawless. I haven’t used another primer since.

Foundation: NARS. Oh My Gosh. This foundation is amaze balls! My new favorite foundation. I just don’t know where to start, like it’s not cakey, a lot goes a long way, full coverage, oh I can just go on and on. It’s just amazing.

Concealer: No Surprise here, it’s the tarte shape tape. Haha

Contour: NYX Wonder Stick. Now I usually don’t contour every time I do my makeup, cause I ain’t got the time. I just put some bronzer and go. But, for special days when I want to look snatched I use the Nyx contour stick.

Setting Powder: Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder.

Bronzer: Chanel Bronzer

Blush: Charlotte Tilbury Blush.

Highlight: Charlotte Tilbury Gold Bar Highlighter. My absolute favorite part of my makeup routine.

Eyeshadow: Huda Beauty and the Morphe Jaclyn Hill pallet. Used the huda pallet for the first two makeup looks and the Jaclyn pallet for the last look.

Lipsticks: Chanel lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hill liquid lipstick, and L’Oréal liquid lipstick.

Mascara: Chanel.

And finally setting spray:NYX Dewy Finish.

The first look is a more natural look with a nude lip.

Second look is similar but with more glitter and darker colors and a satin finish lipstick. This is pretty much. My go to look. What can I say I love my pinks!

And finally the glam bam look. This is more of night out look but, who am I to tell you when to wear a bold look. Heck I’ll go pick up some coffee in sweat pants with this look. Haha. This is the I actually had time to put on some red lipstick and not look like clown look. Just kidding. What can I say about this look… well it’s a Smokey eye with a bold red lip! And I love this look, it’s definitely out of my basic pink eye and nude lip look but, it’s a look. Haha

Well these are my three Valentine’s Day looks I have for y’all. I hope y’all enjoy. I will be posting valentines days outfits in the next couple days. So keep an eye out for that!

August/September Favorites.

Hello beautifuls! Today I will be talking about my August favorites, I know it’s already the middle of September, but ya girl has been a bit busy. Let me fill y’all in on what is happening in my beautiful life as a wife, mommy, employee, and student, again. Yes, I have started school again, I took a break last semester and now I’m back to torturing myself. I keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end. Unlike, last semester I was doing my general studies and getting all my prerequisite credits done, but, this time I will be doing a program that gives me a little more of an understanding of the field I will hopefully be in once I am done with all my general studies. It also gives me a certification that can help me find a job when we go back to then states. So far, it has been easy, but I’m sure it will get harder the more I get into my program. On top of getting school work done, I have been making my squishy face a big boy room. I’ve been doing some DIY decor for his room, I will do a post about it and show you how cute it turned out, I’m really happy how it turned out. Now, lets get onto the goodies.

My first favorite is a new fragrance I picked up, it is a different scent from my Chanel Chance. A few months ago Tiffany an Co. came out with a perfume and I have been dying to get my hands on it and I’m so happy I finally did. It is a fresh and light sort of scent. It smells amazing and the packaging is beautiful.

These next two favorites are my recent makeup favorites. I know, only two makeup item, who am I? When I was back home in the states I was trying to find a new foundation, for a while I was using the BECCA and Too Faced foundations. After, going to Sephora a thousand times and getting samples of all the good foundations, I finally found a good one. If you’re in the market for new foundation I highly suggest trying out NARS foundation, a little goes a long way and it is full coverage. It applies amazing and it doesn’t make me look caked and above all else, it is the perfect color match. The one struggle I had with all the other foundations were some had pink undertones or too much of a yellow undertone, I have more of a natural undertone. The last makeup favorite is the famous Jaclyn Hill Palette. It is a beautiful palette, it has all the colors you need to create different eye looks in just one palette. This being the reason why I haven’t been reaching for my other eyeshadows as much.

Moving onto some jewelry, a girl can never have to much jewelry. The first piece are rose gold earrings for Henri Bendel, they are so cute and comfortable, and the best part is I got them on SALE. Actually, the next two pieces I got on sale as well. These pieces are from Ted Baker, their pieces are totally my esthetics. How beautiful are these matching bracelet and earrings, both are rose gold with a light pink enamel.

And last, but surely not least is my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30. I bought this a couple months back and it was preloved. The handles and trimming were in bad shape, so for our anniversary my amazing husband sent off my bag to get new leather and handles. It takes a while for Louis Vuitton to get the leather fixed so, by the time I got back from the states my bag was ready. Now, it looks like a brand new bag. I love it so much, it’s absolutely beautiful. The best part is even with fixing the leather and such I still paid half of what I would have paid for a brand new one. Isn’t gorgeous?

That’s the last of my August/September favorites. Sorry I have been absent for a while but, I will hopefully get it together.

My Name is Yaneysi and I’m a Shopaholic.

Happy Friyay, beautifuls! I can’t believe I’ve been in Florida for two weeks already, time sure likes to fly by when you’re having fun. Go figure. As, I sit poolside writing this post, I can’t help but be so grateful of how blessed I really am. These pass weeks have been filled with laughter, family love, and lots of shopping, A LOT OF SHOPPING. Not only have I been preparing for my baby boy’s second birthday, but I’ve been taking full advantage of being back in the land where there’s a Target and a Sephora! I’ve been deprived from these places for about a year and a half. It’s a tragedy! So, you can say I’ve been going ham ever since I got here. Just strolling the aisles at Target and having my arm full of swatches at Sephora have been magical. I always do a monthly favorites but, instead I thought I would do a haul of what I’ve got so far. I’ll go by categories from accessories to stationary.

Let’s start of with what my parents got me for Mother’s Day, I got here two days after Mother’s Day but it still counts. My amazing parents got me a Tiffany’s mini heart necklace and Mickey and Minnie kitchen decor. SO CUTE. They are the best.

Now on to the haul, I’ll start with accessories. Target and junk food did a Disney collab its amazing and luckily I was able to get my hands on a few things. I had to contain myself and not buy everything in sight, the struggle is real. Here are a few things I got, some are still available in store and online.

Being back in the states means you can try on clothes without feeling like a fat cow. I love Japan, but their stores aren’t big butt and big hip friendly. So, it was obvious I would buy some cute clothes. I haven’t gone too crazy since I’ve got a party to pay for in a week. But, I couldn’t help myself buying these cute dresses and romper at Target. You can find these online and save 20% off the two dresses.

I knew coming home I would go shopping so, I didn’t bring a lot of shoes. Besides missing Target and Sephora, I’ve missed the discounts store like Marshall’s and TJMaxx . I can always find something good, that something good this time are these cute Jack Rogers sandals for $50! Like Oh My Gosh! I’ve been on the hunt for cute strappy heels and Target came through with these blushy pink heels. I’m obsessed.

On to my favorite thing, makeup! I’ve found my new favorite foundation, my brother was sweet enough to buy me the NARS foundation for Mother’s Day. If y’all go back to my favorite makeup products you’ll see I have the tarte shape tape concealer, let’s just say I scraped and scraped every bit I could till I could get a new. It can now rest in peace in makeup heaven as I got a new one. The other two products are kind of an impulsive buy, but I have no regrets. I never do when it comes to makeup. Lol

Finally, there is no way anyone can go Target and not get pulled in to the dollar section, if you say you can walk right by it, you’re a whole lie. I know I can’t just walk by, so I got a few cute stationary things and pool necessities. I means it’s only $1-$3. Oh let’s not forget good old Walmart, who is really stepping up there game. I picked up some cute cases for my phone and iPad, super cute and cheap. I was sure surprised to see Kendall and Kylie cases, I love the Kardashian/Jenner Klan, I found a cute case with a matching pop socket, tots cute. The last thing is the rose gold phone case wallet I got at charming Charlie’s, another store where I had to contain myself, it’s so esthetically pleasing. Long story short, Florida is a dangerous place for me and credit card. Lol

Makeup, Self love, Shopping

But First, Makeup.

Hello Beautifuls! How many girls go into Sephora or Ulta and feel like they have died and gone to heaven? I’m sure it’s not only me. Now, I’m no beauty guru or have near as much makeup as they do, but I guess I have a pretty good amount of makeup. Makeup makes me feel confident and like I can take on the world. I still feel beautiful without makeup, but it gives me a little confident boost. I did not start getting into makeup until I was about 18 years old. I use to be more of a powder, eyeliner, and mascara kinda girl. Now I have to beat the face and slay. I don’t do my makeup very often, you know being a mother of a toddler and all. I usually do my makeup while he takes his afternoon nap. But, sometimes I’m so tired and have so much to do and I don’t have time to do a full face so I usually put concealer, powder, mascara, and eyeliner and call it a day. Down below I am going to talk about my favorite go-to products I use when I do a full face, from primer to setting spray.



This is by far my favorite primer at the moment. It makes my makeup look so smooth and flawless. This is the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. You can find it in Sephora for $44.00.


I have to foundations I use, but this is the one I reach for the most. It’s kind of annoying because it doesn’t have a pump, it has a dropper. Besides this little inconvenience its a great foundation, it wears beautifully without getting very cakey on the face. I either use my beauty blender or the tarte brush seen in this picture. It’s the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. it can also be found at Sephora for $44.00.


As you can see I am scraping the edges of this concealer. I don’t know what tarte created and did but, this is the amazing. It is so full coverage and so blendable, it is just simply amazing. Like I said before, sometimes I do not have the time to sit there and blend my foundation and do all this extra stuff. So, I just grab this tarte shapetape concealer and put a few dot under my eyes to  cover my black circle put some powder foundation and I am good to go. It is exclusively at Ulta and believe the tarte website for $27.00 , but if you need to know your shade you can go check them out at Ulta.


This right here is my holy grail for setting powders. It has got to be the most amazing powder ever! I set my whole face with this an a little goes a long way. Some setting powders leave a white cast and if taking a picture with flash it sure will have a flashback, but not this. I absolutely love this. It is a but pricey, compared to other setting powders, but to me this is worth every penny. This is the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder, it is available at Sephora for $55.00. (I got this when they have the VIB rouge sale going on.)


These are my go-to blush and bronzer. The Becca Blush pallet has three beautiful blushes, this can’t be purchased it was a holiday collection from last year. But the bronzer is available at Ulta for $28.00. I love how bronzy it make my skin look. It brings a lot of product, I use this every time I do my makeup and I still have not hit pan. These two product sure bring my face back to life after foundations and powder.


Now we are getting into highlight. By far my favorite part of my makeup routine. This is a must. I can’t walk out the house without glowing to Jesus. I have many highlighter but this pallet right here, IS EVERYTHING! I was in Japan when this came out and I had my beautiful madre go get me this. She grabbed the last one in that store. This is a limited edition ABH Nicole Guerriero highlight pallet, so it was a big deal that I got it. There are 6 blinding highlighters. I mean this has me shinning like a diamond every time. I do not know what I am going to do once I hit pan.


These three are my go to eyeshadow pallets. I can created any eye look with these three. All three are super pigmented and blendable. The Lorac pallet was a holiday collection, but Lorac always comes out with a pro pallet during the holidays. The other two are at Sephora the ABH Modern Renaissance pallet is $42.00 and the small Huda Beauty pallet is $27.00. It is very compact and easy to travel with. I love burgundy and pinks, both the ABH and Huda pallet give me those colors. I use to always go for a brown and gold eye look, but I wet out of my comfort zone and I have never looked back.


Finally we get to mascara, eyeliner, and lips. My favorite mascara use to be Too Faced better than sex, but it always start to crumble and flake on my face. Then I found tarte light, camera, lashes, found at Sephora for $23.00. If you aren’t blessed like me and don’t have long, full lashes, this makes them look like they are. It is amazing. My favorite eyeliner is the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel eye Crayon Eyeliner at Sephora for $25.00. It is super black, I like to put it in my lower waterline to give a intense dark look. And my go-to lip has been just a lip liner from NYX and the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss at Sephora for $34.00. It make my lips look glossy and full.
