This 32-page magazine is a guide to my all-time favorite beauty products.


I’m partnering with DIBS Beauty to show you how create an effortless Barbie-inspired makeup look for Halloween using my favorite Desert Island Beauty Status products.

For this look, I’m relying on one of my most loved beauty products: the Desert Island Duo. This double-sided blush and bronzer stick is one of the absolute best cream formulas. It is buildable and blendable!

First, I’m bronzing the perimiters of my face with Shade 2’s ‘Mood Boost,’ a warm-toned bronzer for light-medium skin tones.

The star of the show is the ‘You Do You’ blush—the most stunning cool-toned pink. I apply it to the apples of my cheeks and blend up toward my temples for a lifted look, and I love the dewy finish. If you have deeper skin, Shade 6 would look gorgeous.

I’m also using the blush as eyeshadow for an easy pop of pink. I pack it onto my lids using a flat brush and then diffuse the edges before setting everything with powder so it doesn’t crease. The ‘Roses in Hand’ Palm Palette would also look beautiful for this look.

For the lips, I’m using one of the No Pressure Lip Duos. I line my lips with the Lip Definer in ‘Medium’ and then fill them in with Lip Liner in ‘On the Rose,’ a soft rosy pink. To complete the monochromatic look, I’m adding the blush to the center of my lips. 

Thank you so much for watching and especially for supporting me so I can have opportunities like this one!
