LOTD: Summer Evening Glow

Hi crazies! 😀

How was your weekend? I hope it was awesome! 😀 My weekend was pretty busy! My family is moving very soon, so I’ve been packing everything I won’t be needing for the nest month. I’ll be taking pics of before and afters of the rooms, before with furnishing, and after, empty! 😀 Hopefully, (that is, if I get permission), I’ll put a post up here. 😀

More big news! In 10 days, I am turning 14!!!!!! I have 2 very important things on my birthday list, and they are a cell phone and a youtube channel. I’m already getting a phone, and I asked for a youtube channel. My mom didn’t say no, but she didn’t say yes, so we’ll see! 😀 This means, I’ll be putting up pics from my birthday party, and what I got from my friends/family! So keep a look-out for a few b-day posts!

Now, onto the makeup! 😄

Today’s look is a very glow-y, summery evening makeup look. I took the pictures in very warm, glowing lighting so as to reach the effect I was trying to give the makeup. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

Love you all so much, and make sure to keep updated on my upcoming posts! 😀

New Brow Look!

Hey Crazies! 😀

Here is a quick post on my slightly different way of doing my brows. Usually, I’d just fill them in with some brow powder, and tail out a bit. I wanted to go for a more crisp line though, so I cleaned up around my brows with tweezers, shaped them a bit, and was really happy with the result.

Image

Here are my brows bare, before I did anything to them.

Image

The best way to get your perfect brow, is to sketch out your preferred shape with a white cream product. The best for this is NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. (you should have this anyway, it’s amazing!)

Image

 

Then all I did was simply plucked around the white shape! Easy-peezy ^-^

Image

Then I filled them in with the gel side of the Elf Eyebrow Kit in Dark.

Before:

Image

Aaaaand afta!

What do YOU think? Do you like the new look?

Wedding Guest Makeup! (including tutorial)

Hi Crazies! 😀

Recently, I got a request for a makeup look appropriate for a wedding guest. I used neutrals, and smoked the look out a bit. What’s great about this look is that it’s adjustable to your personal style, and this look also works on all eye shapes, colors, skin tones, and hair colors. Who doesn’t want a look like that? 🙂 I loved how this look turned out, and I hope you like it too!

LOTD: When I Met You In The Summer

Hi Crazies! 😀

I really hope you are all having a great week so far! 

Today’s makeup is using warm tones, a bit of muted pink, and winged liner. The look is *fairly* soft, but it makes a statement. The look is perfect for Summer as well! Also, before you scroll down to see the pics, make note, that I was obsessed with all of the different lighting’s around me, so I took a LOT of pics, hope you don’t think I’m biased or anything! 😛 

ImageImageImageImage

Image

ImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImageImage

a few people have told me I kinda sorta look like Scarlett Johansson, and I thought I kinda looked like her here a bit. 😛

ImageImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImage

Ya, lots of pics, I know! But I was really obsessed with all of the different lighting’s! 😀

I used The Color Workshop for the eyes.

I really hope you liked today’s makeup look!

Love and hugs,

Today’s makeup look is something using fairly neutral colors, and all of the eye shadows used are from my fave Color Workshop Palette.

Warm up the crease a bit with TCW Eye Shadow in Love.

Everyday/Work Makeup For Summer!

Hi Crazies! 😀

Today’s makeup is super simple, quick, easy and everyday/work appropriate. I love the look, because you can do anything to it to add your own personal flare. I personally, love to add a light pop of color somewhere, so I did 2 different pops: gold and purple, the 2 no-fail colors for anyone! Hope you enjoy:

This is the look with the gold pop:
