I HAVE PINK HAIR!

Hi, fashionistas!

I finally did it! I’ve been wanting to dye my hair pastel pink for about 3 years, and I’m proud to say that I took the plunge! Every summer I look through what seems to be hundreds of photos of bloggers and Youtubers that have incredible pastel pink hair, and I daydream about what that would be like on me. Well, this summer I’m taking control and staying true to myself!

I HAVE PINK HAIR!

Glam Makeup and Hair Look!

Hi, fashionistas!

Summer is the season for sun, fun, and vacays to the beach! Well, that’s usually the case. Summer is also about fashion and glam! So, let’s party!

Glam is a fun beauty trend to try anytime of the year! A super-simple, natural eye look with black mascara and a powerful lip is a classic glam style!

Hair can also be glam-ified! Big, shiny curls are gorgeous and go with any look, night or day. The way I see it, if you curl your hair, you’re instantly a model. It feels great!

Ok, so enough with the chit-chat. Here’s my look:

DETAILS: Lancôme lipgloss in the shade 300, Estée Lauder mascara, CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Sheerly Nudes, Smashbox highlighter stick (brow bone), Clinique foundation & concealer, Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

Until my next post, fashionistas! Thank you for reading! I hope you liked my look! Love you guys!

Natural Makeup Look and Product Reviews!

Hi, fashionistas!

I’m so excited to write this post, because I used my new camera to take these photos! I usually use my iPhone as my camera, but this one is so much better! I’m also excited, because I’ve been wearing this look or a similar look almost everyday recently! It’s very simple and easy. I’ve put together my reviews of all the makeup products I used for this look! They’re very informative! Let’s get started:

DETAILS and REVIEWS:

For my eyeshadow, I wore Lancôme eyeshadow in “Classy Stiletto”. It’s a really natural shade, but is build-able for a night look. It also has some shimmer which gives it dimension. For my eyeshadow primer, I wore Urban Decay Primer Potion in “Sin”. It’s great for making colors pop, and also adds a bit of shimmer as well. Normally, I would wear a light, shimmery eyeshadow on my brow bone, but I thought this eye look didn’t need it.

The two mascaras I used were from the brands YSL and Clinique. The YSL mascara is a regular formulated one and the Clinique one is waterproof. I used the YSL mascara for lengthening, but it tends to flake off, so I put the Clinique mascara over it just to make sure it wouldn’t fall under my eyes. Who wants that? I sure don’t! At the end of the lash-fest, I put the Clinique mascara on my bottom lashes. All in all, a great combo!

My foundation is from the brand Revlon and the name of the type is “ColorStay”. I chose the one for oily and combination skin, because, well, I’m a teen. That’s my all-time favorite foundation! I love it so much, because it covers really well, it’s natural looking, and lasts a long time (all day)! It also doesn’t make my face greasy which is a great factor in picking a foundation.

My powder is from the brand Lancôme and is called “Dual Finish Powder”. It’s a great setting powder for foundation. I already used up a compact, and now I’m on to my second! That says a lot, because I like to try new types and brands of makeup, but for now I’m sticking with this one. I almost never do that! If you have oily skin, I don’t recommend that you wear this powder alone, because it will fade on your face. I had that happen to me.

The blush I used is from the brand Chanel. If you don’t know, Chanel is one of the all time leading designer brands! Anyway, this blush is probably the best I’ve ever used! I have like eight blushes in my makeup collection, and I’ve tried many more. Crazy, right? I bought this blush at Fashion’s Night Out at Neiman Marcus. It will probably last me about a year or so. I think it’s a pretty good deal!

The setting spray I used is the Urban Decay “De-Slick Setting Spray”. It’s a great setting spray, because it takes away all the oil off your skin. It also keeps your makeup in place for a very long time. That’s great if you’re going to a party or if you’re going to be out all day without touch-ups. Since I bought it, I haven’t needed to touch up my makeup! You can’t use it for eye makeup, but it’s a dream for face makeup! Loving it!

For my lips, I used a Neutrogena lip balm first. My lips get dry easily, so that’s why I used it before I put anything else on my lips. I then applied my Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in “Cherry On Top”. It’s a little drying, but the color is fantastic! It also gives a little shine. Finally, I applied my Buxom Lipgloss in “Princess”. The shade is so pretty that I just couldn’t resist!

Thank you for reading, fashionistas! I hope you enjoyed my post! I love you guys!

Formal Valentine’s Day Outfit and Beauty!

Hi, fashionistas!

You saw my previous post about a casual Valentine’s Day look, so now here’s my formal look! Let’s get started:

For my dress, I’m wearing my polka dotted, flow-y dress. It’s romantic enough for going out, and cute enough for your loved one to notice! The beige polka dots contrast very well with the navy dress. 

The pastel tights are a good change from bare legs or black tights. They’re unexpected, and that creates a little mystery which is important! They also are a romantic shade. 

The clutch is simple yet has a print. Cute! It has a classic shape which compliments the dress very well, plus it’s almost the same shade as the dress itself! Win win!

These heels are what I call a neutral black. They go with almost anything! They are great paired with dark colors such as the ones in this outfit. 

Dangling earrings are great, because they create the illusion of a longer, thinner face.

OUTFIT DETAILS: Dress: Target, Tights: Hue, Clutch: Juicy Couture, Heels: GB, Earrings: I bought them at Austin Fashion Week

Beauty:

Hair in a side ponytail is cute and flirty! Hair is a key factor in choosing makeup. It means a lot!

For formal date makeup, purple eyeshadow is a great shade to use! It’s mysterious in a way your loved one can’t explain, and that’s a good thing! You also need to put a shimmery eyeshadow (cream or white) on the inner corner of your eyes and the brow bone (below your eye brow). That makes your eyes look bigger and prettier! It’s a must for me (even on a regular day)! It also makes the look a little lighter. Berry lipstick and lip liner is a great idea, too. It plays up your eyes and give you the look of a flawless face. I love it!
