Getting Ready With Neutrogena Visibly Even

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA® and  Latina Bloggers Connect, however, all opinions are my own.

Neutrogena Visibly Even

Neutrogena Visibly Even

Hey guys! Today I bring you an OOTD (outfit of the day) inspired by the Neutrogena® Visibly Even® Collection . I love makeup and I love dressing up, but reality is that on most days I'm running around in comfy flats and ripped jeans with minimal makeup on. My day starts by getting my daughter ready for school and since I walk her to school I also have to get myself ready, but, lets be real who has time to apply a ton of makeup in the morning? especially when you have a toddler and a 6 month old. I have to keep it as simple and practical as possible and by using the Neutorgena® Visibly Even® collection I've been able to walk out of my house looking radiant without having to spend my entire morning applying a ton of makeup to achieve that glow. 
  • I start by washing my face with the Neutrogena® Visibly Even® Foaming Cleanser. It contains ESSENTIAL SOY® a natural Skin brightener that helps improve overall radiance and even out skin tone. It is also formulated with gentle exfoliating beads to refine skins texture, washing away dirt and oil, improving skin tone after every wash. It also smells amazing! I don't know about you guys but I am a sucker for a good clean scent.
  •  I will not start my day unless I moisturize, so my next step is to apply the Neutrogena® Visibly Even® Daily Moisturizer SPF 30. It is so important to use a moisturizer that contains SPF because we sometimes forget that we need to protect our skin year round and forget to apply sunscreen. So for me having a moisturizer that already contains protection against UVA/UVB, just makes it so much easier for me in the morning. It also brightens skin, improves radiance, and reduces the appearance of dullness after two weeks of use. After 4 weeks of use you should start to see a reduced appearance of dark spots. I have a dark spot on my forehead from a zit. I will let you all know if I notice a difference after 4 weeks.
  • To finish my skincare morning routine I apply the Neutrogena® Visibly Even® BB Cream SPF 30. I love BB creams for everyday use and this new Visibly Even® BB cream has quickly become my favorite. It is formulated with natural light diffusers to immediately reflect light and help reveal radiant, healthy-looking skin. It has been clinically proven to: 

- Deliver more even-toned, radiant skin in just 4 weeks
- Diminishes the look of dark spots and blemish marks

Do I need to go on? this is like the holy grail of BB Creams, I apply a small amount and it does the job. I can go run my errands all day long, feeling confident that my skin looks great.
To complete my look I just added a black liner, mascara and a lipstick. This time I choose my fall favorite shade: Red. I feel like a red lipstick can polish any look and it is my favorite lip color. 

XOXO

Pulp Fiction by Urban Decay

Pulp Fiction Miss Mila Makeup
Pulp Fiction Miss Mila Makeup

Hello Beauties!! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I am a little sad that the unofficial end of summer is here, however I am really excited about welcoming the cool crisp weather because I get to switch my makeup and beauty products. Out with beach glow and the glossy bright color lips and in with the subtle eyes and dark lipstick.  That being said you can imagine my excitement when I heard of the Urban Decay limited edition "Pulp Fiction" Collection. One because I'm a fan of the Movie and two because the color pallet is perfect for fall, I just had to try it out and create a simple and easy fall makeup look to show you guys. To create the look I used the Urban Decay "Pulp Fiction palette on my eyes and the "Mrs. Mia Wallace" lipstick. You all know that I love a red lip and this color is amazing (you will see me rocking this A Lot) it is long lasting and does not dry out my lips. The eye shadow palette is also a MUST HAVE, the colors look great and it comes with a "Get the Look" card - with step-by-step instructions for creating a modern version of Mia's look from the film. Although I did not try the Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner for this look I think it is perfect to take your look from day to night in minutes and you can never go wrong with glitter. What do you guys think of this new collection? will you be trying it out? If you so, send me your pics, I would love to see the looks you create.

Here are some details about the collection and where you can purchase:

Urban Decay Limited-Edition “PULP FICTION” Collection
Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Wende Zomnir, is a diehard “PULP FICTION” fan, and with this year marking the twentieth anniversary of the film, she wanted to commemorate the occasion the UD way – with an ultra-limited-edition “PULP FICTION” collaboration. Urban Decay’s inspiration? None other than the cool (and completely badass) Mrs. Mia Wallace. Playing off her iconic look, what started out as only a lipstick and nail polish, quickly morphed into a whole collection, which contains:


Urban Decay “PULP FICTION” Palette
Recreate Mia Wallace’s dark, edgy look from the film with five shades of eyeshadow (three of which are brand new). Each shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability. The shiny black case features the fateful Ezekiel passage voiced by Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) in the film. Inside, there’s a generous mirror and a blood-red double-ended brush (a compact shadow brush and a multitasker brush). Also included is a “Get the Look” card—with step-by-step instructions for creating a modern version of Mia’s look from the film. This limited-edition palette contains:
·         RIGHTEOUS – light cream matte
·         TYRANNY – warm brown matte
·         VENGEANCE – deep taupe-brown matte-satin
·         FURIOUS – white satin
·         ANGER – black satin with slight tonal sparkle
Price: $34, Available at Sephora, Ulta, Sephora.com, Ulta.com, Macys.com, Beauty.com and UrbanDecay.com

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace
Mia’s lipstick is as iconic as her jet-black bob, so Urban Decay had to create the perfect shade to match. The result: Mrs. Mia Wallace, a deep blood red. Like every shade of Revolution Lipstick, this shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™ for insane color payoff with creamy shine. Maxi-Lip™ plumps and nourishing oils leave lips cushiony soft. This shade comes in a limited-edition, jet-black version of the usually gunmetal lipstick case.
Price: $22, Available at Sephora, Ulta, Sephora.com, Ulta.com, Macys.com, Beauty.com and UrbanDecay.com

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Mrs. Mia Wallace
To go with the Revolution Lipstick, Urban Decay created a matching blood-red 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil, also dubbed Mrs. Mia Wallace. The creamy, waterproof formula applies smoothly, prevents feathering and lasts all day. Draw lines that define, then fill in your lips to help prime them for lipstick or gloss. Vitamin E, jojoba oil and cottonseed oil nourish the skin and ensure a smooth application.
Price: $20, Available at Sephora, Ulta, Sephora.com, Ulta.com, Macys.com, Beauty.com and UrbanDecay.com


Urban Decay Nail Color in Mrs. Mia Wallace
Urban Decay’s “PULP FICTION” collection wouldn’t be complete without a bottle of Nail Color inspired by Mia’s look from the film. The shade is of course dubbed Mrs. Mia Wallace, a deep red with a slight shimmer. The long-wearing, chip-resistant formula has a high-gloss finish that’s tough and durable, yet flexible. And it’s 3-free—formulated without toluene, formaldehyde or DBP. The full-size bottle comes with a limited-edition, jet-black cap and holds 10 ml of nail polish. You’ll wear this timeless red forever.
Price: $15, Available at Sephora, Ulta, select Macy’s, Sephora.com, Ulta.com, Macys.com, Beauty.com and UrbanDecay.com


Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Gunmetal
Yes, we know Mia wasn’t wearing glitter liner in the film, but if there was a glitter liner in the ‘90s, she would have worn it. So Urban Decay created an exclusive Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner shade to best compliment her badass look –Gunmetal – black with black and silver sparkle. The water-based, buildable formula contains super-fine glitter in a clear base that dries down quickly and stays put. Peach and cucumber extract condition the skin, while carrot extract smoothes and softens. An added bonus – this shade is paraben-free.
Price: $19, Available at Sephora, Ulta, Sephora.com, Ulta.com, Macys.com, Beauty.com and UrbanDecay.com

Fringe Fever

Top: Forever21 || Hat: H&M || Shoes: Via Spiga || Necklace: H&M

Hello loves! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I am trying to enjoy as much of what is left of summer as possible so I have been out a lot and taking outfit pics every chance I get. Now lets get to my outfit details. I feel like I keep finding all kinds of new with tag clothes in my closet lately, I purchased this top last year for my wedding in the Dominican Republic. I originally purchased it to wear as a beach cover up because the fringe actually went all the way down to the knee. I never wore it and its been in my closet since, then while randomly scanning my closet I saw it and tried it on with these jeans but the long fringe didn't look right then I thought maybe it will look better with shorts, but that also just didn't feel right. As I kept thinking of what I can wear it with, I finally came up with the idea of just cutting the fringe shorter and tadaa this super cute top came to life. I love when I can alter an article of clothing to make it look more like what I envisioned. I was completely satisfied with this look and it was super comfy which seems to be my preference these days.

Hola amores! Espero que todos hayan tenido un fin de semana fantástico. Estoy tratando de disfrutar tanto de lo que queda de verano, así que he estado fuera mucho y a la misma ves tomando fotografías para el blog cada vez que puedo. Ahora vamos a llegar a más detalles sobre ese look. Siento que sigo encontrando todo tipo de ropa nueva con la etiqueta todavía puesta. Compre este top el año pasado para mi boda en la República Dominicana. Originalmente compré esta camisa para ponerme la por encima de mi traje de baño porque la franja llegaba justo encima de la rodilla. Nunca  me lo puse y lo e tenido en mi armario desde entonces. Cuando buscaba algo para ponerme encontré este top y me la  probé con estos pantalones vaqueros, pero el flequillo largo no se veía bien. Luego pensé que tal vez se verá mejor con pantalones cortos, pero que también no me gusto.  Quedé pensando en lo que yo iba a llevar y finalmente se me ocurrió la idea de cortar el flequillo más corto y TADAA este top super lindo volvió a la vida. Me encanta cuando puedo modificar un artículo de la ropa para que se vea más como lo que yo imaginaba. Me quedé completamente satisfecha con este look y es súper cómoda, que parece ser mi preferencia en estos días.

This is what I wore to the Old Navy holiday preview event. I purchased this blazer back in May and never got to wearing it until now. I hate when I do that, I buy things and forget I have it, but it is always fun finding it when you least expect it. Fun fact about these jeans, I distressed these myself following the instruction on a youtube video. they had some small rips but not enough so I went ahead and searched on good old youtube and found a few different tutorials that were easy to follow. Watch out! I will be doing these to almost all my old jeans I love ripped denim.

Esto es lo que me puse al evento de Old Navy donde presentaron su colección para las navidades . Compré esta chaqueta en Mayo y nunca lo use hasta ahora. No me gusta cuando lo hago, compro cosas y olvido que lo tengo, pero siempre tengo que admitir que es divertido encontrar las compras olvidada cuando menos te lo esperas. Dato curioso acerca de estos jeans, los destruí yo misma siguiendo las instrucciones en un video de youtube. Tenían algunas pequeñas rasgaduras pero no lo suficiente, así que busque en youtube y encontré varios tutoriales diferentes que eran fáciles de seguir. Preparense! Voy a estar haciendo esto a casi todos mis viejos jeans Me encanta los jeans rasgados.

XOXO

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Summer is flying by and I just want to hit a pause button to make it stop. The only good thing about the end of summer are the huge summer sales. I've been taking advantage of the many sales going on right now and most recently I got some amazing deals at Zara and JCrew. I am loving this skirt it is such a classic pencil skirt and  I love the side slits at the bottom, it gives the skirt a little more movement. What are some of your favorite  sale scores of the season?

Happy Monday! Espero que todos hayan tenido un fin de semana fabuloso. El verano está volando por me encantaría precionar un botón de pausa para hacer que se detenga. Lo único bueno sobre el fin de verano son las enormes rebajas en todas la tiendas. He estado tomando ventaja de las muchas ventas del momento y más recientemente me encontré con ofertas increíbles en Zara y JCrew. Estoy amando esta falda, es clásica y me encanta las aberturas laterales en la parte inferior, le da a la falda un poco más de movimiento. ¿Cuáles son algunas de sus venta favoritas de la temporada?

Todays look is simple and classic. I love the lace detail on this top, it is so feminine and pretty, I wore it with my favorite pair of jeans for a little night out with my hubby and kids. I wanted to look put together and still be comfortable since I was pushing around a stroller and taking a car seat in and out of the car. To finish of the look styled my hair in a rope braid. It has been my summer hairstyle obsession, so easy to do and perfect to keep your hair away from your face and neck during these hot summer days.

Mirada de hoy es simple y clásico. Me encanta el detalle de encaje en este blusa, es tan femenina y bonita, la lleve con mi par favorito de jeans para una noche de paseo con mi esposo y los niños. Quise sentirme cómoda, ya estaba con los pequeños y cargaba con el asiento de carro del bebe. Para finalizar este look me hice una trenza la cuerda. Ha sido mi peinado favorito este verano, por que es tan fácil de hacer y perfecta para mantener el cabello lejos de su cara y el cuello durante estos días calurosos de verano.

Hey everyone! Todays look is a very casual and easy look. By now you all  know I am obsessed with anything faux leather, I actually feel a little bummed out that there aren't that many options for leather in our summer wardrobes LOL. I was in heaven when I came across these cute shorts at H&M recently, it's the perfect short, light and not skin tight so it was perfect for a nice and breezy summer evening. It can also transition into fall perfectly with layers, I am already thinking of possible outfits for the fall.

Hola a todos! El look de hoy es un look muy casual y cómodo. A estas alturas ya todos deben saber que estoy obsesionado con algo de piel sintética, de hecho me siento un poco desanimada que no hay muchas opciones para el cuero en nuestra ropa de verano LOL. Cuando me encontré con estos pantalones cortos lindos en H&M hace poco, me sentí super contenta por que es perfecto, liviano y no apretada a la piel, así que era perfecto para una día de verano agradable. También puede hacer la transición al otoño perfectamente con capas, yo ya estoy pensando en diferente combinaciones para el otoño.

XOXO
