Current Favorites!


Happy Thursday everyone! I recently went to Sephora to pick up a new Anastasia Brow Wiz Pen but ended up buying more than anticipated. Am I the only one? Haha. I’m currently LOVING these four products seen above and I think they are necessary in everyone’s collection. All these products mentioned can be purchased online or in store!

(Left to Right)

1. Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation : I purchased this for $39 and I bought the shade “Medium Sand.” I have heard SO many great reviews about this product so I knew I had to try it for myself. I have used Tarte’s Tinted BB Cream for the past 6 months and I love it so that’s why I wasn’t hesitant in purchasing the full coverage foundation. The consistency of the two products are almost similar but they feel completely different on the face and the foundation does wonders. It truly lasts all day! I am set on this for my everyday face for the next few months if not forever.

2. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer :I purchased this for $29 and the shade I bought was “Custard.” I always watch Ingrid Nilsen aka missglamorazzi on Youtube and this concealer is her GO-TO. It covers up so well and is definitely full coverage. This product lives by its name, “radiant” and “creamy!” It’s easy to glide on and pat in.

3. Benefit Cosmetic’s They’re Real! Mascara : I received this mini sample free from my reward points at Sephora! I am a mascara junkie for sure but I never bothered to try They’re Real! until I got this sample. I am absolutely in love with the brush of this product! It truly does volumize and lengthen every single piece of your lashes. I have a full review for this product that can be found here !

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz :I purchased this for $21 and the shade I bought was “Ebony.” This is my HOLY GRAIL. I love love love the brow wiz pen and I use it on a daily basis. It’s super easy to control and could easily create a bold or natural look.

I am so in love with all these products and have nothing but GOOD things to say about them. Have you tried any? Please let me know if you’d like a full review on any of these. Thanks for stoppin’ by! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and bloglovin’









Eyes of the Day | Urban Decay Naked 3 Pallete

Hi everyone!

here’s the look I created using Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Pallete. Aside from the Naked Basics, this is the only other one I own. I love the colors and the combinations that can be created from it. I purchased mine for $52 online when it first released since it was out of stock in stores. I highly recommend this to anyone!


1. I used “Limit” on the lid,
2. “Nooner” to darken my crease
3. “Dark Side” on both my inner and outer V
4. “Trick” patted in the middle of my lid.
5. I used “Mugshot” to blend this all &
6. “Strange” under my brows.
Lashes are @maybelline The Rocket
Eye liner is  #Revlon liquid liner & @ultabeauty gel eye liner in “blackout” also smudged my water line using “Black Heart” from the pallete



Make-up of the Day | No Brushes Required


Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. Mine went by fast and now it’s officially spring break! Thank goodness! Anyway, this morning all my make-up and brushes were already packed up and ready to go home but I still had a lot of products left behind that I didnt use as much. I was able to come up with this quick, 15 minute make-up look for today that only required the products you see above! No brushes needed.

1. L’oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder
-Purchased at Target
-My shade: 324 Buff Beige

2. NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer
-Purchased online on NYX website
-My shade: 04 Beige

3. Maybelline Master Glaze

-Purchased at Target
-My shade: Black

5. Benefit Cosmetics Creamless Cream Shadow
-Purchased at Sephora
-My shade: Birthday suit

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
-Purchased at Sephora

I started off with concealing my under eyes with product #2 then I applied my foundation, product #1. Following that, I used product #5 and patted it all over my eye lids. Then I used product #4 to coat my lashes and product #6 to fill in my brows. Ending with product #3 to bring color to my face.

This look is super easy, achievable, natural and minimal even when you don’t have brushes. Hope this quick post helped you all!

Have a good weekend!

Review | NYX Butter Gloss

Hi there! I’ve had these butter gloss by NYX for a while now- long enough to see how they’ve been working for me- so I thought I’d share with you all swatches of the ones I bought  & pros/cons about this lip product. I paid $4.99/each at Target. Unfortunately the Target I went to only had very few colors so I only picked my favorites but I love them so much that I will be ordering more online!

These links will take you directly to the site if you want these goodies in your collection! I’ve included both Target and NYX websites (online definitely has more selection than in store!)

Pros: Glides on easily, glossy, pigmented, smooth, doesn’t dry out lips, doesn’t leave lips crusty, super long lasting, big selection of colors & affordable

Cons: Started to get a bit sticky (after 3-4 hours) and catching my hair but it wasn’t bad like other lip glosses I’ve purchased.


Name of colors: (left to right)
Strawberry Parfait, Maple blondie, Creme Brulee, Vanilla Cream Pie & Tiramisu.


Let me know if you have any questions below. Overall this lip gloss is amazing and can easily top off natural make-up look on your bare lips or a dramatic look on top of a matching lipstick.


Book Me Today!

Ok everyone in Colorado (for now), after much contemplating, I’ve finally decided that I want to start doing make-up on the side of my busy college life. I have so much make-up that needs to be used up so what better way than to do what I love for other people!?! Whether it’s a date night, prom, graduation or any event, book me at angellzoobeauty@gmail.com for exact prices, a consultation or an appoitment.

Because I don’t have a variety of foundations for different skin types (yet), I will request that you bring your own unless we personally talk about other options. Everything else, I will provide!

Please email me for rates

I hope to eventually grow bigger with this but it’s start. Again, thank you all for your support with my blog and passion.
