FOTD Smoky Hues

Hello lovelies, today I wore a smoky shadow with pink and purple tones, I paired it with my new obsession, this awesome Revlon lipstick. I was thinking of cutting my hair, it is getting way too long for my taste. Any ideas would help! I look forward to hearing from you all and I promise to update way more often as soon as I am done with finals (next week) ahh study study! The life of a college student =p

Close-up, I need to work on keeping my eyes more open lol, the flash is so bright on my camera!

You can get this lipstick HERE (Not sure why my camera made it look purple, it is actually a pinky color)

Canon Powershot Sx150 IS + NYX Eyeshadow Base

So I finally got a new camera! YAY!! I am so excited I am not done playing around with it but I love the pictures it takes, they are soo clear and detailed =D. It is a canon powershot sx150 IS. I bought this one from Best Buy but I just noticed I would have saved myself like 50 bucks on Amazon =/ ehh. Either way I am happy  with my purchase, maybe now I can have better pictures on here for you guys.

I have been hearing great things about the NYX Eye Shadow Base in White so I decided to go out and buy it online. Since I promised you all some swatches for the BH palette, I used the NYX base for the swatches, so you can admire them both ;) Btw, I really like the NYX base so far, I love how its an inexpensive alternative to all the other pricey bases.

BH 120 Palette + Broadway Nails

Hello everyone today I am super excited because yesterday I received my 120 Bh Cosmetics Palette!! It is super cheap right now and it arrived at my door in just 2 days! Anyway I was trying out some colors and they are just superb. So very pigmented and beautiful I am definitely going to be using this one a million times more than my coastal scents palette. Here is a picture of it and I will do some swatches tomorrow in the daylight for you guys =D

I also purchased these awesome nails from Target (you glue them on) They are called: Broadway Nails-Fashion Diva Divine. I have been wearing them for a couple days now and they are still perfectly beautiful. I have even scrubbed so many dishes and I'm surprised they are still on (not even one has fallen off!)

I wish you all a fun and safe weekend!

Different Faces

Hello my beautiful friends, today my cousin was over and we decided to do her make-up, It was night out so the pictures (sadly) didn't come out very well.. but hopefully you can still enjoy them! Also.. A few days ago my friend came over for dinner, and I did her makeup as well. I really love these girls eye shapes and long natural lashes, they are so lucky. Some of us are stuck wearing falsies but it's okay right =) I love my false lashes lol.

Questions: What is your preference in eye shadow colors? ex: natural, bright?

My cousin Lina, this is her before picture:

Normal School Day...

Today was a normal Tuesday at school, I decided to do a full black eye shadow all over my lid using Night Sky by Maybelline. You can get it from amazon: Maybelline New York Expert Wear or Target. Then I wore a regular black and white striped shirt and these boots from Shiekh. These are not exactly the ones I have, but they are pretty close and looks like they are only $10!! I wish I would have known about this online sale! lol.

Question: What is your favorite online store?

Sweater Dress + Pink Shadow

This was my first time wearing a sweater dress, I didn't think it would really help keep me warm, since after all it's still a dress! Well I wore it to my cousin't engagement dinner and WOW it was so warm and I loved how it looked =) I also wore a pink shadow on my lid and smoked it out with black. So It wasn't too bright or popped out too much. Here are some pictures!

                                                                 Excuse the background XD

Green With Envy

Sorry I have been M.I.A for a while :(  Well anyway I bought a couple of things from ELF and a new lipstick from L'oreal. I also got some sponges to apply my foundation with =D.

So I have not tried everything here.. but if I really like something I'll be sure to share! I did try The elf primer though, and it sucked so bad! As soon as I applied it..... IT CREASED! So I do not recommend spending your $1 on that, lol. I am totally loving their mascara and bronzer though! I still need to try the brush shampoo, makeup mist, correcting powder... OH I also got these neat eyebrow trimmers that TRANSFORMED my brows! I am definitely buying these again!

Today I wanted to wear green shadow for some odd reason and I came up with this!

There is like a lime green on my lid and a nice grassy green on the crease with glitter over it and green on my lower lash line. I also added some black on the ends of my crease for more definition.

My lashes are from EBAY 99 cents, free shipping! Heck Yes!

<3 you all, How are you spending Veterans Day?
