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!

Valentine’s Day Tips!

Hi, fashionistas!

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and you know what that means! There’ll be hearts, flowers, and too many chick flicks to count! I can’t wait!

Let’s talk fashion! Flirty dresses and cute heels are a traditional must-have for this special occasion. Also, to create an even more romantic feel, choose a dress in a white or light-colored shade (think pink, lavender, or blue). If you don’t want to go the traditional route and want to opt for a fresh spin, I recommend polkadots or a fun pattern.

Don’t forget about shoes! Heels are a staple for Valentine’s Day! For a girly feel, try a pair of stilettos in a pretty shade. For a tougher/edgier vibe, choose a pair of thick-heeled shoes or a pair of heeled ankle boots. Shoes are important!

Now, for purses! A small purse would be so cute! I would choose a mini satchel, because a clutch won’t hold a lot and you have to carry it in your hands the whole time. I don’t want to be thinking about that when I’m on a date, right?

Here are my Valentine’s Day fashion must-haves (via Polyvore):

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

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Glossi.com - EFFORTLESS COOL - Autumn/Winter 2013

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!

GET GRAPHIC!

Hi, fashionistas!

Hallways tend to be pretty boring with the plain walls and all, so add some umph by wearing graphic tops and pants! Who knows, you may even spark a new trend at your school!  Be that trendsetter. I know you are, fashionista!

Get Graphic! - Tee's
Get Graphic! - Pants

Get Graphic! – Pants by theteenrunway11 featuring highwaist pants

You can wear a pair of pants with a geometric design or maybe a top with a cool lion head against a black background. Both of them are edgy, yet both are unique.

Well, that’s all for this post, fashionistas! Until my next one! Thank you for reading, and I love you guys so much!

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

P.S. I used a curling iron to achieve this look. This isn’t my natural curl (I wish!).

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

Need a new dress FOR LESS?

Hi, fashionistas!

Summer is finally here! Yeah! You don’t know how long I’ve waited for summer! Do you know what a new season means? New trends and clothes!

Vacations are just around the corner, so to complete that exciting event, a new fab dress is needed! Sure, shorts and skirts are still great for traveling (obviously), but every girl on the go needs a cool dress for her night out!

Some dresses can be expensive, so it’s always a good thing to get a coupon code. Online shopping is awesome, because there’s more options to choose from! Romwe is a great online shop to buy a well-made, cool dress! You really can’t go wrong with one their garments. From studs to sparkles, simple to flair, they’ve got it!

WIth that said, there’s a great coupon to save you some bucks on a dress from Romwe! It’s not just a small percentage off, too. It’s 30% off! How much better can it get?!

Click on the picture below to go to the sale and have at it!

Thank you for reading this post! You guys mean so much to me I can’t even describe it! Until my next post, fashionistas!

Outlet Stores: How to Score Big!

Hi, fashionistas!

As a girl who goes to outlet stores, I’ve learned a lot! I’ve created a list of ways to get what you’re looking for and not overspend:

  1. Know what type of item you’re looking for! Trust me, you don’t want to be in a big store full of fabulous items without any idea of what to buy. You’ll probably end up buying way more than you should have (most of which you might not even need). Your wallet will thank you!
  2. Look at everything in the store! Years ago, when I was a beginner, I would look at just a few things, and then make my choices. That’s not good, because there may be something you would like more without even noticing it! It’s hard not to be stuck on a specific item, but there’s always other options. Take your time!
  3. Pick up the items you are most likely to buy, and keep them in your arms! Don’t put them back on the rack and expect to find them later. This is especially useful and extremely important at a clearance event! Girls can go crazy sometimes!
  4. Stay within your budget as much as possible and use cash! If you go in with $20, don’t spend $40. The only times when this is acceptable is when the item costs more than you thought, needed to be better quality, or you can’t live without it! The bottom line is, would you pay full price for it if you had the money? If not, don’t buy it.
  5. Take the term “I can’t live without it” lightly! If it’s not a need, you can live without it. That’s what I tell myself every time I walk into a store! I almost always see something I “can’t live without”, but I actually can. It’s a hard thing to do if your fashion and beauty obsessed, but you’ll be fine!
  6. Lastly, if there’s going to be an awesome clearance event at a particular store that you love, be prepared! In a nutshell, that means get up early, research the products’ retail prices, and, if possible, bring a friend or family member who will help you find those scores!

It’s as easy as that! I know it might seem a little scary, because of some “horror” stories about people getting trampled at sale events or fighting over that special find. But, it’s fun! I’ve found a lot of big scores in my life, and I did it by using these tips & tricks! Even if I don’t buy much or I just go with a friend, I get a kick out of seeing the sales price vs the retail price! It’s addictive!

So remember these tips, and, don’t forget, have fun!

I love you guys! You mean so much to me! Until my next post, fashionistas!
