My Target Haul

Published January 30, 2014 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello everyone,

Last weekend, my friends and I went to Target. I purchased three makeup items. One is a Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer. I have never used a moisturizer and my friend suggested to me to get that brand so I decided to purchase it and try it. When I first put it on, it feels light on my skin which is a plus. If you have sensitive and oily skin then it is a good brand to purchase. I would recommend the moisturizer. The next makeup I purchased is Physicians Formula bronzer. I heard great reviews of Physicians Formula so I wanted to try the bronzer. When I put it on, it feels natural on. If you have never wore bronzer, I would recommend Physicians Formula. Lastly, I purchased NYC City Proof lipgloss in the color Everlasting Blossom. It is a nice pink and it lasts up to a long of hours. When I put it on at night, I still have it on the next day. I  would suggest to put on a pink lipstick and put that on ligloss on top of it. I would recommend all of the products that I purchased.


My Makeup Skincare Routine

Published January 15, 2014 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share with you all, what my makeup skincare routine. I first put my Bobbi Brown foundation on. It is my favorite foundation ever! It doesn’t make my face feel like I do not have any foundation which is a plus. After I put my foundation on, I put my concealer underneath my eyes. It is NARS concealer in the light shade. I love the NARS concealer. When I put it on, it makes my skin feel natural. It brightens up my face.  I would recommend the concealer to anyone.The shade is perfect for my skin tone since my skin tone is pale. After I put my concealer on, I put on Rockateaur Benefit blush on the apples on my cheeks. I love the color of the blush. It is the perfect shade for the winter time. I would recommend the blush to anyone. I hope everyone had a great one!

My Sephora Haul

Published January 10, 2014 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello everyone,

Today, I went to Sephora and I needed a concealer. I bought NARS concealer in the color light (vanilla). I love how natural the concealer looks on my skin. It feels like I do not have concealer on which is a plus. It matches my skin so perfectly. I would recommend the concealer to anyone. Since I had 100 points on my Beauty Insider, I bought for free Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. I am so excited to try it tonight! They gave me Make Up For Ever lipstick and mascara for free. I like how the mascara has a small wand.  I like when mascara that has a small wand, because it is easier to use on my lashes. When I put on the mascara it makes my eye lashes appear thicker which is a plus! It is not waterproof mascara which is good, because I think waterproof mascaras do not last long. For me when I wear a waterproof mascara I always have to put more on throughout the day or night because it does not last. I  The lipstick is in the shade Rouge. When I put the lipstick on it looks a little dark on. I think I will put on a lighter lip gloss to go on top of the lipstick to make it not so dark. Also, they gave me Benefit What’s Up highlighter. Believe it or not, I do not normally use a highlighter. When I put it on my face, it did not match my skin. The highlighter appeared to be too dark for my skin tone. I would probably get a highlighter to match my skin tone.

I hope you all have a good weekend! Talk to you all later!

December Favorites

Published January 3, 2014 by Nicole Ashley Fashion Blog

Hello everyone, Happy 2014 everyone! I hope everyone had a great New Years. I wanted to share with you all what my December favorites are. My favorite foundation is the Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation in the color light. It makes my face feel like I am not wearing any foundation and it lasts for the whole night which are both a plus. I do not use any primer because my makeup stays on my face for a long time. I am open to suggestions on what is the best moisturizer for oily skin. My favorite eyeshadow is the MAC All that Glitters. It is so pretty on and it makes my eyes pop. My favorite concealer is Instant Age Rewind Eraser in the color light. My favorite eyeliner is the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil in the color mahogany. My favorite eye stick is Laura Mercier in the color jungle. Instead of using liquid eyeliner I put this stuff on top of my eyelashes to give it a smokey look for night. My favorite mascara that I mentioned on here is the MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash. It makes my eye lashes have volume and it is long lasting. Also, I have been using the Benefit Rockateur blush. I mentioned it before on here and it is so pretty on. It looks natural when I wear it on my cheeks. I am open to any suggestions on what a good bronzer is for everyday natural looking and that looks good on snow white skin. My favorite lip balm for the month is Baby Lips. My lips have never felt so soft.
