Holiday Makeup Look with Neutrogena

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GetHolidayReady #CollectiveBias

Today I have teamed up with Neutrogena, Walmart, and Social Fabric to bring you guys two different easy ways to get your holiday look by using Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks and one easy way on how to remove it all with Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.

img_0104

I purchased these items from Walmart, for a direct link to purchase these items click here. Below is a few photos of where I found the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, in a 21 pack and Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in different colors. My looks that I created were with  Deep Plum (180) and Pink Nude (100).

img_0106

img_0109


My Walmart offered 16 different colors!!! The colors they have to choose from are amazing. I love when companies offer more than just a few. We all have different likes and needs when it comes to our makeup looks. Since Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks are made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color that lasts for hours. Amazing right? I know at least for me, living in VA – it’s needed to find a good moisture locked color stick. I did their 3 day test, they say within 3 days of using their products, your lips will feel smoother. I can give them a thumbs up on that!

img_0105


img_0110

Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – 21Count are my go-to makeup wipes. I’ve sworn by them for years and if you didn’t see my Instagram video, head there now to see how easy it is to remove your makeup by using their Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They say it erases 99.3% of your most stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara, in one easy step and I 100% believe them. One of my favorite things about using Neurogena makeup removes is how gentle they are on your eyes. I wear contacts and I’ve had the issue with other brands burning my eyes.

img_0107


For my first holiday look, I used Pink Nude (100) on my lips and cheeks. I did a soft daytime look, something you can wear to the office or during the day while you’re running errands. I think the soft pink is perfect for a natural look. This color is my go-to for day to day, I keep this in my bag as my “chapstick” – adds just the perfect amount of color to your lips!

img_0101


For my second below look I used Deep Plum (180) – I simply added some darker eye shadow, used the Deep Plum color stick on my lips and cheeks. It’s so easy to change up your look by using a darker lip color. This lip color is perfect for a holiday party that’s in the evening or a fun girls night!

img_0102

img_0103

I hope this helped show how easy it can be to achieve that day to day holiday look or the night out on the town holiday glam!

Shake, Spray and Go! Dove x Bowling

I partnered up with Dove and Simply Stylist to share my favorite weekend activity and how I stay fresh thanks to Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant. One of my favorite things to do during the weekend is to go bowling with my better half, even if I win 1 every 20 games. haha I’ve always been a huge competitor at any sport I’ve ever played, well let’s be honest I’m competive in anything I do with Carl. It’s hard to beat someone who’s a retired NFL player. *Rolls my eyes* I’m thankful that Dove Dry Antiperspirant keeps me dry and smelling good when I’m “hard in the paint” trying to win my game! It’s always a heated competition and with one spray I’m ready to go — protected & feeling fresh.

dove2

I always keep a Dove Dry Spray in my bowling bag, it’s a must have right next to my bowling shoes. Yes, I own my own bowling shoes. One spray and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and start throwing some strikes, or gutter balls. haha Below is a photo of how easily it fits into my bag! My bowling bag is glamorous but my Dove Dry Spray is a necessity.

dove6

Deodorant is a key part of every woman’s daily beauty routine, which is why it is so important to use one you can trust to keep feeling fresh and confident as you go about exploring your passions and interests. Whether you’re in the middle of a heated bowling game or at the gym crushing your daily workouts. WithDove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, you can just #ShakeSprayGo and have the assurance of 48-hour protection that goes on instantly dry and cares for skin with Dove 1⁄4 moisturizers. They currently have 8 different formulas / scents, my two favorite scents are “Beauty Finish” and “Cool Essentials”.

dove1

Beauty Finish is delicate and soft, think of a big fresh floral arrangement filled with freesia, jasmine and water lily. Also add the light scent of pineapples and pears.

Cool Essentials is cooling / watery notes of freshly cut cucumber, green tea and melon which are combined with fresh floral notes to give you a refreshing scent. Click here to learn more or to purchase at your local store.

Don’t they sound amazing? No, you can’t spray them in your mouth – even though sometimes I’ve been tempted. Do not try that. You can simply raise your hand, spray and dance around in happiness.

I’ve been using Dove since I went from a girl who turned into a young woman, who’s now over 30. Ha – I honestly use their products daily and truly believe in Dove. Thank you Dove and Simply Stylist for letting me be part of a great collaboration. I hope you all now run to your local store and pick up a new Dove Dry Spray and also join me in this fabulous way to stay dry for 48 hours! Remember, raise your hand – spray and go!

Kate Somerville x Foreo Spa Indulgences Gift Set

Christmas is right around the corner!!! Crazy right? I feel like it was just July – I know I miss that July weather. With that being said, it’s time to think stocking stuffers and thoughtful gifts for your better half, friends, family or even the boss! Today I will be giving you more information on one of my favorite gift sets that was just released by Kate Somerville & Foreo!

img_0234

You can get the professional-level skin care at home with this gift set. It retails for around $312 but you can find this at Nordstrom for $249! The set includes: FOREO LUNA™ 2 professional, Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser, Kate Somerville Kateceutical Multi-Active Revive Triple Peptide Cream. Direct link to purchase click here – you can also get FREE shipping.

What is the LUNA 2 Pro? “It is a powerful cleansing device designed to give you a daily mini-facial in the comfort of your own home.”

What it does: “With a motor two times as powerful as the original LUNA design and a brush surface made out of smooth, soft silicone, this device is gentle and effective, using dual T-Sonic™ pulsations that are channeled through softer, longer silicone touch points to deep cleanse the skin, unclogging pores of 99.5% of impurities and clearing away dead skin cells. Providing an essential step in any facial care routine, it cleanses in a way that protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier while nonporous silicone resists bacteria buildup, making it 35 times more hygienic than standard brush heads. Incorporating 12 varying intensities, LUNA 2 Pro channels lower frequency pulsations directly onto wrinkle-prone areas, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking radiant, smoother and younger. Fully waterproof, a single charge offers up to 450 uses.”

Smell Amazing. Look Amazing. Feel Amazing.

 

Who doesn’t want to “smell amazing, look amazing, feel amazing” ? 

img_8579

I’ve had the pleasure of trying Franklin & Whitman’s all natural products & so did my dogs! (You see that Dog Balm above? Lola & Mya enjoyed being pampered too!!)

They have one of the best “about us” statements, which I’ve posted below for you.

“To us, smells are gateways to memories and emotions. The sweet, milky warmth of vanilla, for instance, brings back memories of childhood treats and innocent pleasures. The purifying, refreshing, and energizing aroma of grapefruit helps wake the senses and gets you energized for the rest of the day. What we smell effects our mood, our energy, our passions. Our all-natural products not only smell amazing, but also nourish your hair and skin, helping you look and feel amazing!” 

How is true is that statement? I know there are SO many scents that bring me right back to a childhood memory of my grandmothers house, how her laundry room smelled and even her perfume. Two of these products brought me back which I’ll be describing below & I’m hoping I can start my own memories with my future family as well.

img_8571 img_8572 img_8573 img_8574 img_8575 img_8559

 

Above are my favorites! Each product is all-natural, plant-based, cruelty-free lifestyle products with a social mission. What’s their social mission? Well, I’m glad you asked… It’s very dear to my heart since 1 of our dogs was rescued! “Our social mission, Hairy Animals, pledges that we will donate 5% of all Franklin & Whitman sales to Dog Rescue organizations.” Click here for more information on their mission to help our furry friends.


Before going into the products I adore, Franklin & Whitman is giving 30% off your order with the discount code TONYA30 & FREE shipping until the end of the year.

Body Scrubs: Used these while in the shower, they give your skin such a refreshing feel and smell. Wash away that dead and rough skin while enjoying the aromas of your favorite scents. Direct link to purchase here – They also have Mineral Soaks which is the next product I need to get my hands on. Nothing like a hot bath with mineral soak after a long work day, add some wine & that’s perfection for me.

Hair Serum: Use this on dry hair! I especially use this product when I curl my hair to give it some extra shine after using my hairspray. Direct link to purchase here.

Botanical Steam: I’ve used this twice already and my skin is thanking me. I’m all about trying to new ways to clean my skin. After all, you can’t hide it! It does an amazing job removing any pollutants and dirt from your skin while surrounding you in a smell that lights up your senses. Direct link to purchase here.

Face Masks: I am in love with how different these are. They come in a powder form which is great, why? Because then there isn’t any chemical preservatives! Talk about freshness. You can use them on a regular basis when you feel your skin needs some attention. I used mine 3 times in a week. I’m a face mask junky. Two thumbs up!! Direct link to purchase here.

If you wanted to do a package deal and get the facial care kit, you can! Direct link here

Dog Balm: Let’s not forget about the furry love in our lives!! Just how we love facials and mani/pedis, our dogs need some pampering too. I used the balm on their noses and paws. It helps prevent dry cracking in those areas and well as making them feel loved. We all know we pamper our dogs more than ourselves right? haha Direct link to purchase here.

Another fun and environmental safe fact about Franklin & Whitman is the packing peanuts your products come in are  100% biodegradable and are made of vegetable starch. You can throw them away or dissolve them under warm water in the sink. How thoughtful is that? It’s the little things they do that truly shows how much they care for our environment and how much we should as well.

Hope you found something new to try & don’t forget “TONYA30” for 30% off & FREE shipping!

Opinions & thoughts are 100% mine, Franklin & Whitman did provide samples for me to review.

OSEA Malibu x Tonya Michelle

 

A family business that started from an idea. OSEA Malibu

“Coming from a background in holistic health and healing (and not big business) my mother knew that she had developed an all natural skincare line using the best all natural ingredients available – but would anyone else notice the difference? There was only one way to find out…” -Melissa Palmer

img_8165

And boy am I glad I found out! Above you will see 4 products that I was able to try out from their line and each product is my favorite for different reasons. I will showing the Red Algae Mask selfie this weekend as well on Instagram!


Red Algae Mask

img_8166

This mask is perfect for those dealing with acne as well as mask lovers in general! It’s not recommend if you have sensitive skin tho. This mask helped calm my skin, heal existing breakouts and cleaned my pores. I used this twice a week! I used it daily during the lovely time of the month, it’s when my skin really starts to be difficult.

To purchase or for more info on the Red Algae Mask click here


Atmosphere Protection Cream

A Light-Weight Daily Moisturizer that Hydrates & Protects Against Environmental Damage.

img_8168

I love this moisturizer simply because it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily or greasy. It dries quickly and left my skin feeling light. It doesn’t clog your pores which is hard for me to find in a moisturizer. I used this morning and night about 3-4 pumps per time. It also smells amazing. Win win right?!

To purchase or for more information on the Atmosphere Protection Cream click here


Sea Vitamin Boost

Nourishing and Hydrating Mist

img_8167

This so far is my absolute FAVORITE product by OSEA. I use this ALL the time, I wish I had someone to spray it on my face while I slept. haha But really, not kidding. It’s a spray mist which I used this for the days after the pool, I’d hop out of the shower and spray this on my face. You can let it dry or rub it in, I’m the person who fanned it dry. Doesn’t burn, doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t clog your pores. I will be using this in the winter as well because my skin tends to get drier then. If you only can purchase one of these items, I recommend this one to start.

To purchase the Sea Vitamin Boost or for more information click here


Ocean Cleanser

Refreshing, Mineralizing Cleanser

img_8169

This cleanser is amazing for so many reasons. It removes the impurities from your skin leaving it feeling brand new! What’s better than skin thats clean and refreshed? Nothing! I also used this product twice a day, morning and night. It’s also PH balanced and chemical free.

To purchase the Ocean Cleanser or for more information click here


If you’re looking to try some new skincare and want great results I would suggest any of the products above. OSEA also has gift sets if you’d like to combine products and try different ones. You can click here to see what they offer.

Also, I love their family story and how this business came about. There’s just something about a family business that I love. Maybe it’s the story, maybe it gives you the feeling of buying something that started off as a small idea and now is helping so many people achieve beautiful skin. Click here to read about their history and how OSEA came about.

Thank you OSEA for letting me try these amazing products. Hearing results is one thing, but getting them makes me happy that I’m able to share how much I enjoy these myself.

Sol De Janeiro x Tonya Michelle

I love discovering new beauty care! Especially body care that smells better than Heaven. Sol De Janerio products not only make your skin softer than a baby, they smell so good you might try to eat them. (Please do not try eat them —  just rub the bum bum cream on your bum) Make yourself feel like a Brazilian Beauty with these products below!

fullsizerender-8

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Be ready to throw out whatever brand of body moisturizer you have, don’t even think twice. This “bum bum” cream is made to change your life. It doesn’t feel sticky, drys quickly, doesn’t stain your clothing and give you such soft touch. Oh did I mention it contains a blend of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí and Coconut Oil & Guaraná caffeine helps stimulate circulation and keep those behinds their smoothest, tightest! What’s better than that? Nothing.

img_7878

Samba foot fetish cream

Currently sold out with the high demand of giving yourself an at home pedi…. luckily can head to Sephora to purchase until they stock up again!!! Who doesn’t love smooth and soft feet? I know for my ladies out there who are always running around in heels like myself, a pedi is always needed every 2 weeks. With this 2-step set, you’re able to scrub away those rough spots on your heels and feet yourself. Put on those heels and go! Don’t need to worry about a greasy feeling, no slipping in your heels/sandals.

img_7877

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel

Sol De Janerio says showering should be a treat, not a routine. I couldn’t agree more with that statement. Shower time for me is relaxing, it’s time to reflect on the day ahead or the day that has passed. It’s also about making yourself smell and feel better! Making this shower gel part of my daily routine has changed the way I look at how I pick what shower gel to buy. I never used to care about ingredients much until doing my research on this product. There are some key elements that made this a game changer!

1. Coconut Oil: We as americans might of just jumped on this band wagon but Brazilians have been swearing by this for much longer. It softens the skin and moisturizes without leaving a sticky feeling. The smell speaks for itself, no need to go into that!

2. Cupuaçu Butter, it’s their Shea Butter!  The best part is that it helps restore the skin’s elasticity…YES please!

3 .Açaí is the antioxidant super fruit that helps keep skin healthy and young. (Woo Hoo!!)

Tree Hut & Me

Summer time means making extra sure you’re on point when at the pool, wearing dresses and shorts!!

Thankfully @treehut sent me this set to help me shave/wax and look my best.

image1

I used the shave prep in the shower before shaving, it helps remove dead skin cells and lift up the hair as well. It’s one of my favorites because of the sugar scrub, yes it smells like you can eat it, but please don’t. (haha you never know!) The shaving oil you can use after shaving but I used it during, personally thats how I like to use it. You can do either! The body butter helps minimize how often you need to shave, I have been using it for two weeks and I love it. It does take up to 4 weeks to see results but I personally have thin hair so it’s been working faster for me. I use in on my arms, legs, bikini area. I haven’t used the wax kit yet, not brave enough…haha. I will be trying it in weeks to come and will give you an update on how it went. So, I’m glad I was able to review these products and take some time to give you some feedback as well. Remember, #BaseSkinIsIn & @treehut can help you stay summer fresh all year round. Below I’ve posted the photos of each item and also links to purchase!

Drugstore makeover!

Everyone wants to be able to purchase the best makeup without breaking the bank, to me you just have to do the “trail and error” process. I’ve tried SO many different drug store brands and I’ve narrowed them down to my favorites below! I purchased these from either Target, CVS or my local grocery store. (Some of the links are through Ulta)image2-2

 

1. I couldn’t live without my false lashes, I feel like now they are part of my identity!

Favorite lashes:

Ardell Glamour Wispies Black Lashes $3.99

Ardell Glamour Lashes #113 $3.99

 

2. I swear by e.l.f concealer, I ran out of my usual one and decided to give e.l.f. a try, again…trial and error! I’m officially hooked and never looking back.

Cover Everything Concealer $2.00

 

3. Milani has been creating the MOST beautiful blushes lately and I bought them all! haha, who else loves a good blush?

Rose Powder Blush Limited Edition $8.99

 

4. Almay is top 3 in my favorites for mascara, goes on thick, doesn’t clump and leaves my ardells looking perfect!

Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara  I bought the midnight color, they have 4 options. $8.49

 

5. I have acne prone skin so when it comes to foundation and BB creme, I have to make sure my pores won’t be clogged or have a thick “cakey” look on my face. It’s hard to find good coverage with those that don’t, MAC makes me break out like crazy so I’m glad I found Physicians Formula BB creme.

Super BB #instaready Beauty Balm BB Cream  Light/Medium$14.95

Also I use: Organic wear BB cream Light/Medium $14.95

 

6. Back to Milani again! They have some of the best lip glosses that don’t give you that “sticky” feeling and don’t dry out your lips.

Milani Fierce Foil Lip Gloss 02 Rome $8.99

 

These products above are my daily routine! I do have others that I love, let’s be honest…we all have that makeup drawer filled to the top. I hope you ladies enjoy these products as much as I do! I achieve the look below using all of the products that I just discussed.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

 

xx TONYA
