My Best Cream Blushes

Hi beauty bloggers. Seasons are changing soon, which means the weather will be changing as well. When the temps start to cool down, I like to use cream blushes if my skin feels and bit drier. I do tend to layer cream with a hint of powder blush because I have oily skin and I don't want it slipping off. Since I don't wear cream blushes that often, I don't want to invest a lot of money in these types of products. Here's some cream blushes that are very affordable and highly pigmented.
  • NYX Glow
  • NYX Tickled (has hint of gold)
  • Malley Pink Perfection
  • ELF Headliner

What's your Skin Tone?

Hi. This is beautyundergrad with a Tip of the day. This video is to help find out your skin tone, if you are like me it was not so easy to determine because you fall between both, warm tone and cool tone. I had to actually alter my look to fit in one or the other. The nice thing is that you can be both with a few adjustments. Hope this is useful.

Amazing Cocoa Butter Products

Palmer's Cocoa Butter products are my favorite. These products claims are all facts! There lotion is a creamy formula with Vitamin E. heals and softens dry skin and soothes stretch marks and tones skin. Palmers Hair Milk with coconut oil, Vitamin E and Keratin nourishes and tames my frizzy locks. No sulfates, No parabens. Palmers lip balm has SPF helps prevent chapped lips, but heals cracked lips and wind-burned lips. Its amazing. My favorite is the swivel stick formula. Thicker then the lotion like the chap stick. I use this for everything. Its on the spot moisture. I use it for nails, toes face, lips, its even helps healing blemishes. Save yourself money. These products are all under $5.00 dollars and they truly do what they stay.

I purchased NYX Matte Bronzer in Light for a natural contour look. I found it to be good for winter, but not in summer when I am a little tanner. I purchased the Medium and thought it could be just a bit darker, so then I purchase the Dark. Now that I have all 3 shades I decided to use Light for winter, Medium for Spring, and Dark for Summer. My recommendation is if you have light -medium skin tone just purchase Medium it will work best. Dark is not dark enough for dark skin. As seen in my swatch then are all very similar.
1) Light   2) Medium  3) Dark
