Perfect Imperfections

Fall in love with yourself and your imperfections.

Make a list of 3 of your flaws, things you don't like about yourself. You can literally write it on a piece of paper or make a note in your head. 
Mine are, my big ears, my big forehead and my heighth. When I was a kid, other children at school used to make fun of my big ears calling me dumbo etc. I always wear big earings to try to hide my huge ears. Almost everyone in my family has big ears, its definatly a family flaw that I have inerited.
I used to always try to have some sort of bangs to try to cover up my forehead, and when I took selfies I used to try to cut out the top of my forehead becaucause it is so large. 
Lastly, my heighth. I'm only 5'4. When I was 16, a talent scount for a modeling agency aproached me and gave me her card. I was so flattered and excited to start modeling. They signed me but I never got any jobs because of my height. So ever since then I have been super self conscouse about being short. I adore wearing heels, not only are they beautiful but they add some much needed heighth. 


Notice my massivly huge forehead and ears?

Now, I want you to make a list of 3 things you love about yourself.
Mine are my teeth, eyes, and skin. I am going to brag on myself a little, i'm 26 years old and I have never had any dental problems. No cavitys, nothing. My teeth are perfectly straight and white(of course I whiten them often). I love to smile and laugh a lot and show off my pearly whites.
I am so in love with my eyes. I have almond, kinda slanted eyes because of my mediteranian background. They are brown, and sometimes in the sun they look red, its crazy. And I have really really long eyelashes.
Lastly I love my skin. This probably sounds kinda odd but I have a honey/golden skintone so I stay tan year round. My skin is smooth all over. I don't have problems with acne or brown spots. I've had 2 kids and I don't have any stetch marks or cellulite.

But the point of this is that i've come to terms with all of my flaws and have gotten over my insecurities. Look at your lists, doesn't the things that you love about yourself  override the things you don't like about yourself? Maybe I have a big forehead because i'm smarter than everyone and I can hear better than other people(j/k!). 
Embrace your imperfections. Sometimes, ecspecially when we are younger, we take things that we feel bad about ourself on our outside appearance and turn those feelings of negativity init into a bad flaw on the inside. 
Don't we all love feeling good about ourself on the outside. When you look good, you gain confidence and self esteem, making our inner beauty glow. Ignore your flaws, after all most of the things we feel like is wrong with our appearance, most people never notice. I mean, Beyonce has a big forehead and ears, but is anyone really looking at her ears?
Fall in love with yourself. Loving yourself can totally change your outlook on life. Stop comparing yourself to others, no one is perfect, we all have our insecurities. Embrace your flaws, do good things in life and be a good person. At the end of your life, that is what people will remember you by, not your imperfections.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on sephora.com. I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.


The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:


Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
