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:

VERNEZ App Review!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m letting you know about a new must-have fashion app called VERNEZ! It’s available only for iPhone users for now. This is one of my favorite apps, because you can create your own magazine by putting together outfits using shoppable items, follow other members, and “hype” (like) their posts! It’s a community full of stylish girls supporting each other! It’s everything you could want in an app and more!

The format of creating outfits is similar to Polyvore but still has some differences, and you know how much I love Polyvore! Two of the main differences are that you can create your dream wardrobe and can become a recommended (featured) member. There are endless options and fabulous clothes and accessories to choose from!

Here are screenshots of some of the amazing outfits users have made:

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!

Fashion Identity App Review!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today I’m going to tell you all about a fabulous, easy to use iPhone app called “Fashion Identity“! It just hit the App Store and is being snatched up by many teen girls already! In my opinion, this app is a must-have!

Fashion Identity is an app where you can share your OOTDs (outfit of the day), gain influence in the fashion industry by showing people your fashion sense, chat with other fashionistas, follow or friend other stylish members, and more! Sounds fun right? It’s one of my all time favorite apps!

Statement Outerwear!

Hi, fashionistas!

As usual, I’ve been researching fashion trends and I’ve come up with my must-have list for fall and winter outerwear. These statement pieces are sure to get attention and double takes. Cool, right? Here’s some of my favorites:

The "I NEED IT!" Outerwear

The “I NEED IT!” Outerwear by theteenrunway11 featuring a satin jacket

The "I NEED IT!" Outerwear

The “I NEED IT!” Outerwear by theteenrunway11 featuring a proenza schouler jacket

  • Trench Coat with Studs: The studs add an unexpected edge to the classic trench. It’s a great idea for a night out or a special day!
  • Faded Denim Jacket With Lots of Rips: This is perfect for the cool vibe you need for a school day or even a trip to the mall or movie!
  • Words on the Back of Jackets: This is a fun idea for any day and event! Put it over a tee, sweater, or a casual dress for a graphic take on the classic denim or leather jacket.
  • Fitted Letterman Jackets: This is a super cute take on the oh-so-preppy football team jacket! If you’re aiming for the prepster look or are just looking to add some prep to your style, I suggest this! You can wear it to school, the mall, the movies, or on a casual weekend with friends, but maybe not on a first date.
  • A Polka Dot Trench With a Colorful Collar: I could see me wearing this coat when I’m feeling happy or just need a little whimsy in my day. Even in the girly, pink color, it would look great at a semi-formal party or special event. Trust me, you’ll be happy you bought it.
  • Stained Leather and Vegan Leather Jackets: Whether the jackets are a rainbow or deep red color, they’re awesome! These jackets are immensely popular for fall and winter, because of the unique treatment of the leather. You can wear them to semi-formal events, the mall, or even to the movies!

So, that’s my take on the top trend of statement outerwear! Would you wear statement outerwear or do you think it’s too bold? Let me know in the comments below! I want to know your thoughts! Until my next post, fashionistas! I love my lovely readers! Goodbye for now!

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!
