FOTD-Smoky Eye, Fair Skin

Hey there, here is my FOTD, I am using a new product today to conceal my dark circles. I am using Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles treatment concealer. So far I like it very much and will definitely be buying another once this one runs out.

Pro's:
Non- mess applicator 
Perfect shade with my skin tone
Conceals very well
Has a lot of product in tube

Cons:
Too much product comes out, one click can cover both eyes
Need a brush to blend because the one attached has too much product on it


This is a basic smoky eye, but what I did to make it stand out a bit more was: I extended my inner corners inward with a black liner and added black eyeshadow under my waterline to make my eyeliner look darker.

You can see where I extended my inner corner better with this picture:

Water Marbling Overview + tips

Hey guys here is the mess I made on my nails while trying to water marble them, lol. I actually really like this style of doing your nails, it's very different and fun if you have the patience! I noticed not many people like this because they either: cannot get the nail polish to disperse well in the water, or their designs come out looking like crap. I'm in no way putting them down I just personally think it takes some practice and if you master it then you will def. be the envy in your group of nail polish lovers.
I obviously need to clean these up a bit more (and I screwed up the tip of my middle nail) but here is the end product:


This was my "work station" I used:
Bottled water (room temperature)*Plastic bottle cut open*Nail Polish remover*A couple orange sticks*Nail polish*Tape*Scissors.

You can look up a video on youtube for a visual tutorial I am only specifying what I did that worked for myself.
1.I prepped my nails with a basecoat (Essie)
2. Cut out 30 pieces of tape and put them around my nails so that I wouldn't get too much nail polish on my fingers.
3. Painted my nails white using a sally hansen nail polish.
4.I added some nail polish remover into my room temperature bottled water so that the polishes would disperse better.
5. Created a "bulls-eye" adding one drop at a time and alternating between white and purple nail polish. (Sally Hansen and Ulta brand)
6. Created a swirl with my orange stick and stuck my finger right above the prettiest design.
7. While my finger was still inside I used my orange stick and removed all excess polish from water, then removed my finger and repeated for the rest on my nails.

I am really loving this way of applying nail polish so I am going to be doing it again soon!
Quick tip: To conserve time, make two designs in the water and dip TWO fingers in! then you also save nail polish =) Good luck!!

Hey =)

Hello everyone just a reminder that I am alive and doing well! Lol =)  I have been trying to do something new, it is called water marbling. It's basically this cool technique for applying various colors on your nails "easily". I am still in the process of getting the hang of it so I can blog about it. Hope you are all well, I will leave you with this FOTD from a few days ago, enjoy and come back soon!

FOTD: Neutral and POP of Color

Hey everyone here is my face of the day! It's just a very neutral look with a pop of color on my lower lashline. I wore this out for some mall time with a few friends, my husband and my daughter. I went to Coldstone Creamery and was very upset by the fact that they don't carry Twix anymore as a choice for their add ons =( Other than that is was a fun time I hope you all enjoy! Until next time =)

Layered Shadow

Hey lovelies, here is a makeup look I did using my BH palette. I used an orange on my lid and purple right above that. Then I blended some pink right on the tip of the purple and shaded in my crease with black. Finally a blueish color on my bottom lashes. It is super simple and really fun because it makes you stand out so much. (In a good way) lol. 
I am also open to any requests! So send them in if you have any. 






Random Question: Do you budget your paychecks? How do you make sure that you are using your money wisely and not just on wants?

Liquid Liner How-To [Cat Eye]

Many people have trouble creating a cat eye with liquid liner and there are many problems that arise in the process. It really sucks when you have to find ways to make your liner match on both sides when you screw upon one. So I will show you a nice and easy way to do it. 1.Start with a bare eye for practice and continue on top of any eye shadow once you have it mastered.


 2. Create a line from the very corner of your outer eye and extent it as long as you would like. (Some people like a long dramatic cat eye and others like a barely there cat eye)

3. Now start and the end of your line and return it toward your eye. You will have something like this:

4. Finally, trace your eye with liner with desired thickness, and you are DONE!

Diamond Lashes



This review was requested. Here I am wearing the eyelashes I showed you in my earlier post from forever 21. They cost $1! I wore them to my cousin's baby shower and they were perfect. Usually I have to cut my falsies but these fit just right without poking at my inner corners. I am also sporting my new hair, lol. It is too short for my taste but I absolutely had to get rid of my split ends so it will have to work for now


I apologize in advance for the quality on this picture but you can still see how beautiful these lashes turned out. I am definitely buying more soon!

Small Haul

These things are from forever 21 and the nail polishes are from styles. I recommend the polishes because they are surprisingly good quality and extremely cheap (3 for $5!) They are by L.A Colors. The bows were $1.50 and the lashes $1 each! What a great buy, I am def. going to stock up on lashes when I go back because they turned out very good and I love them. The shades were $5 and they are awesome! The only thing I did not like was the yellow/gold nail polish because it made my nails look as if they had fungus, ewww. Took it off right away lol.
