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
