In this post, I’ll reviewing my favorite makeup product that I literally could not live without – FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil. This product has changed my life and I seriously use it every single day. It must’ve been fate that this product came into my life because I say “diamonds all over my body” all the time. It’s a major key in #FGGW Lingo. So the fact that this product actually has the words “diamonds all over” in it’s name is amazing.
The Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil is an unreal highlighter. It costs $38.00 but is so worth it. It lasts forever and really is a game changer. I’m obsessed with this product because it has so many different ways you can wear and use it. I will break down the ways I areas I apply this makeup product on my face, and also share some life-changing tips and amazing ways to use this highlighter.
How I Apply this Product for a Casual Look-
Here are the steps and areas on my face I apply the Diamond Bomb Highlighter to using a fan brush, for a casual and everyday look:
First, I apply whatever other face makeup I’m wearing for the day (i.e. foundation, bronzer, etc…) then I use the brush to apply the highlighter along the bridge of my nose.
Next, I apply the highlighter above each eyebrow.
I apply the highlighter lightly in a “V” shape on my forehead
I use my finger to apply a tiny bit on my cupid’s bow (area directly above your upper lip)
And finally, I apply the highlighter to my upper cheek bones. I apply the most here.
Major Key: Apply the Highlighter to Your Inner-Eye With the Tip of Your Finger.
Use All Over Your Chest for an Amazing but Subtle Glow When Going-Out or In the Sun
I’m obsessed with applying this highlighter all over my chest! I love that it’s not like crazy noticeable, but definitely shines just right. I went to a pool party last weekend and so many people came up to me and said “you’re like glowing!”… like yup, I know. LOL. It was 100% the move to bring the Diamond Bomb out to play for the pool party – definitely keep this in mind if you’re going to be with friends in a social situation like at the pool, going to the beach or any outdoor party. I guarantee you will be complimented!

Retinol Under-Eye Pads : My New & FAVORITE Beauty Product That I Couldn’t Imagine Living Without…
I am seriously SO excited to write this post and share my new obsession and life-hack with my #FGGW babes! I don’t know about y’all, but dark circles and tired appearing under-eyes are something that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. I think I became especially aware and self-conscious of this when I was in college. That was when I first started experiencing adult life and the reality of not being able to get a good night’s sleep all the time. I remember looking in the mirror in the morning after staying up way too late cramming for an exam and being like “holy sh*t! – I do not want to go in public looking like this!” After working a 9 – 5 job for over a year now, I know for a fact this problem only becomes more real as I get older. I’ve tried tricks over the years to try to make the dark circles under my eyes go away – concealer of course and I even used to keep 2 spoons in my freezer and hold them against my eyes in the morning – but this new beauty hack blows anything I’ve ever tried out of the woods.
No need to wake up like this anymore…
RETINOL Under-Eye Pads are LIFE CHANGING. I saw them in the Beauty section at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago and they were $3 so I thought ‘why not try them?’ – literally one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Each box comes with 5 packs of 2 eye-pads (one for each under-eye). I can’t put into words how effective this product is. You simply apply the pads under your eyes (on clean skin) and leave them on for 15 minutes. Initially upon putting them on, you feel a soothing sensation and just know that you are doing something right. And it’s great because you can leave them on and they stick while you go about your morning routine – multi-tasking at it’s finest!
My New Morning Routine –
RETINOL Under-Eye Pads totally changed my morning routine for getting ready before work. I love that I don’t have to spend as much time on my makeup, trying to cover bags under my eyes before leaving the house. I literally am writing this post at my job (LOL) with legit 0 makeup on right now. And I don’t feel self-conscious. That’s how good these are.
Here’s how I incorporate this new beauty product into my morning routine before work…
First I wake up, quickly shower and brush my teeth
Second, I wash my face with a gentle cleanser to remove any makeup that might be leftover from the day before
Then I apply my RETINOL Under-Eye Pads! I literally wake up excited to use these…
While I leave my under-eye pads on for fifteen minutes (the recommended time), I plan my outfit, get dressed and get my purse ready to leave for work.
Next, I remove the pads. Instantly I sense that the area under my eyes is tight and not swollen and feels better than ever. I gently rub the leftover serum into my skin and for a PRO-TIP (I read this from Kourtney Kardashian’s post on POOSH) – you can take the extra serum and apply it to the area around your mouth. Such a smart and quick tip to reduce smile lines while you’re at it.
From there, I literally apply whatever makeup I’m feeling for the day and head out the door.
You Don’t Have to Break the Bank (like, at all) to Get Your Hands on this Awesome Product!
They carry RETINOL Under Eye-Pads in the Beauty Section at TJ Maxx for literally $3! If you want to order them online, it’s just as easy. Purchase them for $5.99 and read more about them by CLICKING HERE.
Wake up like the princess (or prince) with this life-changing product!
Let me know if you try it! I hope you dolls love them as much as I do!
I know that this product is expensive, but if you can afford the $42 or are saving up to splurge on something soon, I PROMISE you will not regret buying this! I purchased this contour kit over six months ago and use it almost everyday and it looks like it has barely been used at all. You can still see the entire surface of all four colors which is always a great feeling 🙂 I bought mine from Sephora.

I’m obsessed with the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Chiseled to Perfection because you can use this kit differently everyday. It can be used for a casual look during the day and can also be used to totally transform you into a glowing goddess at night! I also have bought the Too Faced Cocoa bronzers in the past so it is great to have the option to simply use the bronzers on certain days, as well.
The Contour kit comes with great instructions on how to use it, but when it comes to contouring I have learned that everyone has their own unique way they prefer to do it.
Here’s a description of how I personally apply this product to get the look I’m raving about:
I will use a round brush (not the one that comes with the kit) to use the “Dark Cocoa” color below my cheek bones, in that hollowed out area that you can find by sucking your cheeks in and making a fishy face. I will use what is left on the brush from the “Dark Cocoa” just lightly under my chin and along my jawline.
I use a round brush as well to apply the “Medium Cocoa” on my forehead, ears, neck, and upper part of my cheeks. Something really helpful a woman from Sephora once told me is that you only want to apply bronzer on areas your face would get sunburnt if you laid out too long… I hope that helps to clarify where I use the “Medium Cocoa” on my cheeks.
I use the applicator brush that comes with the kit to use the “Light Cocoa” in a half circle motion underneath my eyes. I use the same brush to dab a small circle of the same color on my chin, a small touch of it on the area right above your upper lip and below your nose (Cupid’s bow), and a thin brush of it slightly above each eyebrow.
Last but certainly not least, I use the applicator brush to apply the “Pop of Light” along the bridge of my nose.
I hope you dolls take my advice and consider spending your next splurge on this! I really don’t think you will regret it 🙂 And if you do purchase the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Chiseled to Perfection and have any questions about using it, please feel free to comment them on this post and I will be sure to answer them as best I can.
This month my favorite product is the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. I’m obsessed with the amazing lightweight — but effective — coverage. This bb cream has a gorgeous sheer tone to it and I often use this product in place of foundation. It really achieves that “more skin, less makeup” look and I get compliments on my skin all the time when I wear it 🙂 If you can afford the $26 price of this product, I PROMISE you won’t regret buying it! Click Here to purchase it online or to read more about it!
I’m obsessed with the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint because it comes in 5 super sheer, adaptable shades and it is perfect for so many different occasions. It doesn’t matter if I am wearing it as an every-day-look where I only put on mascara with it, or if I am wearing it in replacement of foundation when I am going to a club on the weekend, or if I am going to a dinner party — this product always makes my skin and overall makeup look with no complaints. I am always happy with how pictures turn out!
Here’s a description of how I apply this product to get the look I’m raving about:
First apply a moisturizing primer to your clean face
Squeeze Perfecting Skin Tint on your fingers and use your finger tips to apply on your face (and a little on your neck), using circle motions upwards and out.
A great tip is to ALWAYS apply makeup in upward motions. This is because you never want to apply in downward motions because that contributes to aging.
Using your fingers applying this product – upward and out – gives your skin a beautiful dewy look that lasts all day!
Another reason I love this product is that when you order it from Glossier, it comes with a cute, clear and pink makeup case that is perfect for traveling or bringing with you on the beach or in your purse!
I hope you dolls take my advice and consider spending your next splurge on this product! I promise you won’t regret it 🙂 And if you do end up purchasing the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint and have any questions about using it, please feel free to comment them on this post and I will be sure to answer them as best as I can.
