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

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!

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:

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!

PASTELS…in beauty!

Pastels...in beauty!

Hi, fashionistas!

I’m so inspired by everything spring this year (since winter is almost over), but I would have to say pastel colors are my favorite! It’s kind of like Easter all around you, but better. I was totally obsessed with pastels last spring, but this spring I’m completely sold on this magical idea!
Nail polish is a great way to embed some pastel hues into your look without having your whole look be this same style! There are so many beautiful pastel shades of polishes out on the market! I created an interactive photo on Polyvore of nail polish color ideas! Here it is:
Pastel Nail Polishes 2013
I picked an array of different brands to choose from, so there are endless possibilities. You can even make a pastel-colored nail design by combining some of these polishes!
Eyeshadow is a great way to incorporate pastels into your makeup look! If you like a more subtile look then I would choose a light pink shade such as pale pink or peach. Personally, I love wearing pink eyeshadow! I especially like wearing the light pink ones, because I’m not too big on the bright shadows on me. Here’s another interactive photo of my picks for pastel eyeshadows:

Now for lips! Lip colors can look different on everyone, so keep that in mind when choosing your pastel lip shade. Sometimes, the color can be too pale or too dramatic for certain faces. Ok, now that we know that, let’s get started with the cute pastel lip colors! Pastel lip shades are so cute and fun! Nude is classy, pale pink is so cute, peach is fun, and purple is shockingly cool! I don’t suggest most shades like blue or green. That might look weird and awkward, but if you want to go for it, then by all means go for it, girl!
Here’s my interactive photo of pastel lip products:

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!
