NFL Teams Makeup Look: Washington Redskins

There has been some controversy as of recent regarding the Washington Redskins name. There has also been a push to change the name of this team. Many say the name is offensive to Native Americans. As of today, this NFL team is still known as the Washington Redskins. They have won three Super Bowl Championships. Their team colors are burgundy and gold.

How I Survived the Rest of the Summer Beauty Favorites

The Fall weather is finally here in my area of the United States. I can always count on Pittsburgh Summers to be very hot and humid. It’s challenging to be cute in this type of weather. LOL! These are the beauty products I relied on to not look a hot mess during the Summer.

  • Black Soap from Nature’s Shea Butter
  • Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
  • BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation – Deep Beige
  • NYX Eyebrow Gel – Espresso
  • NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer
  • BH Cosmetics 24 Piece Synthetic Makeup Brush Set
  • NYX Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner – Silky Cashmere
  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner – Lionfish
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub
  • Shea Terra Organics White Chocolate Whipped Shea Butter Ultimate Moisturizing Body Cream

Summer Survival FaceThe skin on my face when the humidity is low is typically combination/oily. I notice my skin is oilier during the Summer with all the humidity. The Black Soap from Nature’s Shea Butter cleansed my skin thoroughly and helped keep my complexion clear.

Summer Survival SkinSpeaking of skin, the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub made my skin soft and smooth.

I applied the Shea Terra Organics White Chocolate Whipped Shea Butter after I bathed. This shea butter wasn’t greasy either.

Summer Survival Eyes

I received the deluxe sample of the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara from my August 2014 ipsy Bag. I instantly fell in love with this mascara. I didn’t necessarily need to wear eyeliner with this mascara. This was great for those mornings I was in a hurry.

I used NYX Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Silky Cashmere on my waterline to brighten my eyes. This was also a time saver for me when I didn’t wear a lot of eye makeup. I paired this eyeliner with the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.

The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Lionfish was a nice alternative for me instead of using black eyeliner on my lower lash line. For some black eyeliner can be a bit harsh. This eyeliner also gave me a natural look.

I really love the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Espresso. It stood up to Pittsburgh humidity. This eyebrow gel lasted all day. A little goes a long way.

Summer Survival FoundationI was really surprised by the performance and coverage of the BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation. I originally bought two shades for myself (Deep Beige and Deep Cocoa). I found myself reaching for the Deep Beige more since I thought it was a better match on me. The color is buildable. This foundation didn’t make my skin oily and it didn’t oxidize.

Summer Survival Concealer  The NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in Nutmeg has been my go to concealer. This concealer did a great job on covering my blemish scars and hyper-pigmentation without feeling heavy.

Summer Survival BrushesI got a lot of use out of my BH Cosmetics 24 Piece Synthetic Brush Set. This set has all the brushes I used for the on Wednesdays we wear pink series I did for the Summer. The brushes didn’t shed when I cleaned them either.
