Summer Polish Picks

In the Cab-ana blue

This week on my nails I am wearing Essie's "In the Cab-ana"
This is the perfect baby blue for summer. It is super pigmented and pretty thick. I only need two coats and the polish is perfect.

Over the blue polish I use the Orly "Sec'n Dry" Top Coat. This is my favorite top coat of the moment. It's not too runny, but not really thick. It also goes on easy and smooth, it can easily fix any bumps on the blue nail polish.

Here are some pictures....

Travel Makeup Bag for a Beach Vacation

I will be going on a 4 day vacation this weekend, my husband and I are heading to Ocean City, Maryland. Im exited about sun-bathing at the beach all day and hanging out at the boardwalk all night! So I wanted to share with you the makeup that I will be bringing on my trip. 

For these types of trips I always try to bring the bare minimun, because most of the time I don't end up using some of the things I pack. So here the my makeup essentials when going on vacation...

First off, I'm taking with me a moisturizer, I have the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.

For foundation I will be taking the Revlon Colorstay Makeup in the color 180 Sand Beige.
Next is concealer, I will be using the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo concealer in the color Medium 22.

The Rimmel Stay Matte Face powder is next on the list, I use the shade 001 Transparent.
My favorite eyeshadow primer has been the Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

I only take one eyeshadow palette with me when I travel and that is my Mac Palette. In it I have 19 eyeshadows, I dont use them all, but here are my favorite:

Mystery (I use this to fill in my brows)
Satin Taupe 
Naked Lunch 

Mascara. Right now I have been using 3 different mascaras. I have Benefit's They're Real, Maybelline's The Rocket Volume Express, and L'Oreal's Voluminous False Fiber Lashes.
My favorite black eyeliner is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion.

The blush I'll be using is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Amused. 
Other very important makeup accessories I will be using are 
eye lash curler
Vaseline lip therapy
Mac & Sigma makeup brushes
and Mac's Fix plus.

Welcome to The Soriam Effect!!

I am starting this blog because of my love of all things beauty. It all started about 2 years ago when I began watching beauty videos on Youtube. I have been so inspired by all the talented beauty gurus that I decided to make this blog. I want other girls to be inspired like i was about the art of makeup.

Oh, the wonderful world of Youtube. Right away I was sucked into everything beauty, but especially Makeup! I absolutely LOVE makeup. At first I would watch the very intricate "costume-y" type of makeup that would completely change the person's face. Then as I slowly started discovering more beauty gurus, I started to learn about regular makeup looks for a day to day use. I also started seeing that it wasn't just makeup, but it was fashion, and hauls, and reviews. I just kept on getting inspired...

And that's when the spending started! Now I have my very own (not quite huge) makeup collection started and I cant wait to keep adding to it! 

So with this blog I will be writing about how I see beauty products, and makeup and fashion. I'll try to do a little bit of everything. I will be completely honest and 100% real with you. I want you to know my honest opinions on everything. 

I'll be doing tons of things, including reviews, hauls, products that I love, monthly favorites, outfit ideas, and lots more.

I hope you all keep coming back for more!

Thanks for checking out my blog!
