Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m showing you the fourth installment of my INSTAGRAM RECAP series! It’s a little late because my semester just started, and I’ve been buried under a mountain of homework.

Now, without further ado, here are my most popular Instagram posts from the month of August:

BYBB Makeup Palette REVIEW!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m reviewing the Be Yourself Be Beautiful (BYBB) Makeup Palette! For this review, I created a makeup look featuring every product in the palette. The palette includes four eyeshadows, two lip glosses, one blush, and one bronzer. I really wanted to do something different with this look by creating a romantic twist with a loose side braid and bejeweled headband.

Before I get to the good stuff, here are pictures of the makeup look that I created using the BYBB palette:

Glam & Bold Makeup Look!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m showing you a makeup look that screams “I’m a glamazon and I’m not afraid to show it!” In my experience, a bold lip color and shimmery eyeshadow are my go-to’s for a glamorous look, but you can also create an elegant look in a hundred different ways! The options are endless, but I tend to gravitate towards red lipstick for an old-Hollywood feel.

Here’s the look:

One Direction Makeup REVIEW!

Hi, fashionistas!

Happy New Year! I’m sure this year will bring you happiness, excitement, and, of course, fashion! Here’s my review of the One Direction Makeup kits!

Isn’t the music from One Direction awesome? I love it! Now, the group has gotten even better, if that’s even possible! The geniuses behind the infamous UK boy band has brought to us One Direction Makeup! I was so excited to try it out! Here are the pictures of the look I created using One Direction Makeup and the review of the products:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE DIRECTION MAKEUP DETAILS: Eyeshadow: TELL ME A LIE & EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, Lip Gloss: OVER AGAIN & IRRESISTABLE

OTHER DETAILS: Mascara: Lancome “Definicils”, Foundation: Clinique, Powder: Lancome, Blush: Lancome, Finishing Powder: MAKE UP FOR EVER, Brow gel: Anastasia Beverly Hills

I’m loving these products! They’re very pigmented, so you’ll get just the right amount of color for your look! The eyeshadows are beautiful and stay on really well, and the lip products are fantastic for day or night!

For my eye look, I used the pink eyeshadow for a base and the purple eyeshadow for the upper and lower liner. Since I used eyeshadow instead of the eyeliner, I wet my slanted liner brush, and dipped it into the eyeshadow square. Then I just glided it on to make a cat-eye shape!

For the lips, I chose to create a simple lip that wouldn’t clash with the dramatic eye makeup. First, I put on a pretty, pearly pink shade and then glazed on a shiny, clear top coat. The kits come with very versatile colors, so you will have options no matter what the style!

I think this look is edgy, dramatic, and cool! I’d wear this to a concert or an evening event, paired with a leather jacket, ripped jeans, and combat boots!

Until my next post, fashionistas! I hope you try these products! I love my lovely readers!

xx,

Lauren
