Makeup you need for spring break

13 Makeup Products You Need To Look Fresh This Spring Break

You got the bathing suits. Now its time to glam your face.


I promise this will be my last article relating to spring break. But, can you blame me? As I am packing my bags for the lands of sand and piña coladas, I can't help but think about how excited I am to be packing my bold pinks and reds and to be leaving my "winter" makeup behind. That being said, here are some of my favorites and essentials to looking snatched on spring break.

1. Mattifying Primer- $42

I have heard many good things about this primer, like the fact that it blocks any oil on your face, even in 90 degree heat and humidity.

2. Dewy Foundation- $12.99

This has been my ride or die foundation for many years. Its perfect for spring break because it gives a natural, dewy finish. Plus, it has SPF 15!

3. Golden Highlight- $9.99

There is nothing better than a blinding gold highlight with sun-kissed skin. I like this Maybelline one in "Molten Gold" Put it on your cheekbones, nose, chin, shoulders, chest, arms, legs, everything. Also, if you want something a little higher end, all of the Fenty Beauty highlighters are beautiful and look almost "wet" when you apply, for that super cool glossy look.

4. Peachy Blush- $39

I have been using this blush stick for so many years now, it is amazing. Put it all over your cheeks and blend with a finger for a natural flush to your cheeks. Use this stick for a more dewy look or the regular Nars Orgasm powder blush for a more matte look.

5. Natural Bronze- $30

Another ride or die. Also, they have expanded their bronzer shade range to more deep tones, which I'm so here for.

6. Lasting Lashes- $9.99

Come on, alliteration. This mascara is a necessity. It makes your lashes super long with crazy volume. Get it in waterproof so you can wear it by the pool too.

7. Bold Lashes- $29.99

These are my favorite lashes ever. They are super flirty and make a statement, but they are also fluffy so you don't look like you are about to go to a dance recital. They are a little pricey, but you can seriously wear these babies 30 times and they will still look great. So, for $1 a wear, I'm in. You can also add a few individual falsies to your natural lash, to enhance what mama gave you while still being a little extra.

8. Statement Lip- $6.50

THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE ON A BEACH VACAY THAN A BOLD LIP. Honestly. There is something about tan skin, a blinding highlight and a statement lip that gets me feeling a certain way. I always love a good red, and these Jeffree Star pinks are making me horny.

9. Wet Gloss- $18

Along with bold lips, a wet gloss look is gorg with some dewy skin and highlight everywhere. I cannot stress enough how life changing this Fenty Beauty (in the shade "Fenty Glow") gloss is. Like, I currently have three so I never have to go without it. Kind of insane, but that's how incredible this gloss is. Trust me.

10. Lock It In- $32

With all the dewy products we are using, we need some setting spray to lock it in place. This one from Urban Decay is great for longevity and oil control, while this Morphe one really melts all the powders together and gives you a beautiful natural finish.

11. Oil Up Baby- $35

Alright, so we are glowing on our face, we need to glow on our body too. This oil gives you a gorgeous glow with a little color as well. I also highly recommend getting the Bum Bum Cream, it smells like summertime and happiness.

12. Fake Bake- $44

If all else fails and the sun is just not treating you right, or if you just want a good tan before you even get to SB, I recommend this self-tanner. Exfoliate before, apply with a mitt (I got mine on Amazon) and you are good to go! The color shows up pretty quickly and is super natural looking.

13. Protect Yourself- $13.07

Last, but certainly not least, sunscreen!!!! We love a good sunscreen because we are all about wrinkle prevention in 2019 baby. I use CeraVe on my face, it has a thin, non-oily formula, doesn't smell and most importantly, doesn't break me out. For my body, I love Sun Bum. It smells amazing and doesn't ruin my spray tan.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
