Breast Cancer Awareness Month - October

Today is Halloween, Last day of October, which was a breast cancer awareness month. I decided to "squeeze" in this post before this month is over, just to mention that awareness should not end with it. It is always smart to get a mammogram done from time to time or self examine continuously, since early detection is key in overcoming this horrible disease in the beginning stages. Self examining is easy and anyone can do it! Set a time in a month, where you can lay down flat and raise your hand above your head and feel the tissue around the breast. If you notice any abnormal sized lumps, it's better to get them checked. Breast tissue itself has some structure, once you start self examining, you'll learn what "normal" looks and feels for you. Once you start noticing any change in skin appearance or the tissue itself, get it checked for the peace of mind. I'm not a medical professional, but I wanted to use this platform to remind you that you body is your temple and it's always good to take care of it. I wish you all to be always healthy. You can always google or ask professionals for further info on this. As for me, I created a makeup art to share with you all. Hope you like it!

Plum Smokey Eyes and Dark Lips - Fall Makeup 2016

Hi beauties! How are you? I can not believe that Fall is already here! Summer has been so much fun, we got to travel overseas past month and had a chance to visit beautiful countries and cities. Traveling is always fun, but it's also nice to be back home, back to old routines and my passion - blogging. 
Today I want to share with you this beautiful matte plum smokey eye look paired with gorgeous dark lip. I love how the colors in this look are from the same range, yet still so different. Even in this hot Texas fall this year, after wearing this look I finally realized that Fall is here and thus the season of Holidays has officially started. I hope you find this tutorial useful.

Japonesque Velvet Touch Eyeshadow and Velvet Touch Face Palettes

Hi beauties! Hope all is well with you! I'm excited to share with you today's blog post, which will be about Japonesque new Velvet Touch Eyeshadow and Face Palettes. I have never tried Japonesque products before, but have heard a lot of great reviews about the brand, so I was so curious to try out the palettes. These palettes will be available in the last week of August. I was reached out by Japonesque representative, who asked if I'll be interested in trying them out before the official launch date. I couldn't miss the opportunity and responded immediately with "YES, PLEASE!" 
When I got my hands on palettes, first thing that drew my attention was high quality packaging. Their magnetic palettes were sturdy and convenient, eyeshadows are well secured and seem safe from shattering. After swatching the palettes, I was very impressed with the quality of products, so I decided to sit down and film my whole experience, by sharing my first impression review, demonstrating each shade and creating a look using the palettes. I was not asked to do the video or the review, nor was paid or sponsored to write this post, thus the review reflects my honest opinion.
Let's begin!

Snapchat Dog Filter Tutorial

Hello Lovelies! Hope you are doing well!
Do you use Snapchat? It is a social media tool where you can share moments from your day which your friends can watch for the next 24 hours and then it expires. I like how the Snapchat content can be spontaneous and fun, but most of all, my favorite part about it is filters! I love how with filters you can become someone else, put a quick makeup on or even puke rainbows! Follow me on snapchat (username delia_bc, snapcode is on this blog's home page), where I do makeup unboxing, extended reviews of products with follow ups, share my tips and tricks, as well as post some glimpses from my everyday life. Since I loved the filters, I decided to collaborate with one of my IpsyOS friends to do a snapchat filter tutorial on my Youtube channel. I picked out one of the most used filters, which is a dog filter to recreate!

Celebrity Transformations: Rihanna, Kerry Washington and Selena Gomez

Hello Beautiful people! When I posted my Kardashians Makeup transformations, I received a lot of positive feedback, as well as my most recent transformation inspired by Saoirse Ronan. Thus I thought, since you all really like seeing these transformations, I'd do a couple more. I'm going to share all of them right here in this post. Let's begin!
My first transformation is one of my favorites. It's inspired by Rihanna's makeup that she wore to this years Billboard Music Awards last weekend. My features are very different from Rihanna's so in the photo below I edited my eye color to match to hers, perhaps this would make the merge effect of two faces smoother.
