So you’ve read my partner Gin’elle’s 10 days of makeup challenge, now its time for 10 days of makeup with Curls n’ curves.
Day 1- Favorite High End Product/Brand
My favorite High end product would have to be my Laura Mercier baked blush bronze compact in the shade “Ritual”. It’s a warm bronze with a really nice light pink shimmer.
I really like using this product on days that I truly don’t feel like going all out with contouring and highlighting. I tend to just sweep a little of this product over my cheeks and it gives me a nicely defined contoured look without all the extra.
Day 2: 5 can’t live without products
1. Inglot Pressed Powder
2. Concealer (Maybelline: Master Conceal in Medium & L.A girl PRO in creamy beige)
3. Black eye liner
4. EOS Lip Balm
5. Eyebrow Pomade
Day 3 – Top 3 lipsticks
M.A.C Matte ~ Ruby Woo
Inglot Matte ~ 422
M.A.C Mineralize Rich ~ Posh Tone
Price – $ 17,-
Day 4- Holy Grail Foundation
My “Holy Grail foundation” would have to be my current favorite which is the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation by NARS in the color “Tahoe”, which is a medium dark shade with caramel undertones. This foundation allows me to achieve full coverage and it goes on so light which is a PLUS!
Price – $48,-
Store – Sephora
Day 5-Makeup Collection
My makeup collection consists of a little of everything, ranging from drug store to high end brands and variety of products.
I spend way too much money on makeup, but I enjoy the fact that I can basically find any and everything I may need for whatever look I decide to attempt. In my collection you will find the basics such as eyeliner (gel & pencil), foundation, powder, setting powder, setting spray, mascara, lashes, eyeshadow, concealer, blush, highlighting powder,lipsticks etc. The high end and drug store brands that can be found in my collection are Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, M.A.C, NARS, SmashBox, Ingot, Ulta, Maybelline, NYX, BH Cosmetics and L.A Pro girl to name a few. Most of my brushes were purchased as sets from BH Cosmetics (Some were found in Marshalls for the low) and I do own a few from the brand e.l.f.
Overall you can find anything to put together a full face.
Day 6- Favorite Eye Shadow Palette
My All time favorite is the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay. The main reason why I love this palette is because I can create basically any look that I want to go for, just with this one palette. I am really a nude/neutral tone eye makeup person, so this one palette does the job for me every time.
Price – $54,-
Store – Sephora
Day 7 – Favorite Youtube/MUA
My favorite youtuber at the moment is Naturally Sunny. <—Click here to subscribe to her channel
Day 8- Essentials “What’s in your purse?”
Quick answer: Too much!

~ A pair of Shades & Pair of prescription glasses
~ Makeup pouch (which contains lip balm, powder brush, pressed powder, lash glue, 2 tinted lip glosses & 1 clear lipgloss)
~Emergency Pouch (Containing panty liners, pads, tampons & sanitizing wipes)

Day 9 – Favorite Drugstore Brand
My favorite drug store brand would have to be NYX Cosmetics & yes believe it or not NYX is definitely considered “Drug store”.
Stores: Ulta Beauty, CVS, Beautilicious (St.Maarten) & NYX Online Store
Day 10- 5 Facts about yourself (Makeup Related)
1. I hardly ever wear eyeshadow, because I haven’t mastered application like I would like to. If i do wear eyeshadow it’s always a safe look like neutral tones or a light smokey look.
2. I own 30 lipsticks (Mac, Ingot, NYX & more) but you can definitely only catch me wearing about 5 colors all the time; Red being the main color.
3. I don’t always use primer when applying my makeup
4. I spend more money on makeup than I do on clothes and food.
5. My eyebrows almost never come out looking the same. One of my brows has a natural arch, while the other one is more curved.
