Candytopia

I cherish the moments where I can just kick back and be a kid again! That means having fun and being carefree without having bills, issues, and whatever other adult situations on my mind. Well this weekend I got to do just that by going to Candytopia! It was held here in Dallas, Tx and of course I got to live in the moment with one of my best friends, Nicah. If you aren’t familiar with Candytopia, it’s a pop art museum that you can interact with and of course eat all the candy you want. I highly recommend anyone in the area to check it out. It’s great for the family and for singles too! Check out a few of my photos below:

As you may or may not know, I’m currently going to graduate school at Dallas Baptist University. Lucky for me the campus is absolutely breathtaking. So, while I was there one night this week I took a few shots to show just how pretty the campus is.

Foodie Finds | Sushi Box

Yesterday, I had the best time with one of my best friends, Nicah (Who is also an amazing photographer!). Every time we’re together we like to dine, and this time we picked somewhere new (shout out to Google)! Sushi Box is a sushi place located in Rockwall, TX and I highly recommend them to anyone that wants a new place to eat at or is visiting and loves some good sushi. It also helped that the waitress was nice and attentive and the whole place was spotless. I tried the tiger roll and Nicah had the rainbow roll which she also said was amazing!

Makeup Tutorial | Huda Beauty

This was the look I wore yesterday so I thought I would share how I came up with this. The prices and details will be listed below.

Step 1:

On freshly cleansed, and moisturized skin apply your favorite primers to your eyes and face. My personal favorite for my face is the Nars Radiance Primer and for my eyes, it is the OG, Urban Decay Potion Primer.

 

Step 2:

I like to always start off with doing my eyes first. After I prime my eyes I try to pick a medium light shade for my lid, then go into the middle of my crease with a lighter shade and make sure it is blended all the way until my brow bone. I then go in with a darker shade into the crease and blend, blend, BLEND! Typically for the best results, you’ll want to use a tapered blending brush. At times I will go back and reapply any of the previous shades to my better judgment. After that, I follow up with my highlight shade in my tear ducts and blend again with a tapered blending brush. I find the best way to apply shades to the tear duct is with a pencil brush. Then to finish I put on a liquid liner and mascara. Now you’re done with the eyes!

Step 3:

If you haven’t applied your face primer definitely do it now then use whichever foundation you choose to apply. You’ll want to use circular motions for an even blend around your face and don’t be afraid to apply the excess product to the neck. Trust me, it helps! As far as the amount of coverage that is totally up to you. I typically like to use a full coverage foundation on the weekends, date nights, and other special occasions and a BB cream for an everyday look. Also if you’re just starting out with using foundation I recommend getting a medium to full coverage so that way you can build the foundation up to your liking without looking cakey. Once the foundation is applied it is recommended that you set your face with a powder. I prefer translucent, but I’ll be honest sometimes I skip this step. Shhh don’t tell!

*Side Note: This would also be the time to use any concealer again I skip this step often these days.

Step 4:

The next step is to contour, but again you can skip this if you’re using a BB cream. If you’re using a medium to full coverage foundation I highly recommend contouring to bring the warmth back into your face. Here I used my Smashbox step by step contour kit and followed up with the Huda beauty highlighter kit. I always do my contour shade and bronzer first then go in and apply my highlight to my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, brow bone and temples.

Step 5:

Just when I think I’m done I go ahead and put whichever lip gloss or lipstick I want, do my eyebrows and then set my face with a setting spray. That’s it!
