A Makeup Look Under $25!

So today’s blog post is going to be about a makeup look for under $25. This was a little hard for me to put together but I finally did it! I know you can find videos on YouTube about $20 makeup challenges, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I turned it into a $25 makeup challenge and use better quality products. Also, I didn’t include tax but I thought it would still be fun to do. So lets get started!

Image

In the summer, you don’t want to be wearing heavy makeup, so instead of foundation or BB cream, just use concealer. This is the Essence coverstick concealer and it was $2.49. Just put it on your blemishes, dark circles, and imperfections and you are good to go!

Image

The Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is the best drugstore pressed powder in my opinion. It costs $4.99, and gets the job done. Plus, it’s huge and it will last a long time. Now that’s affordable!

For blush and bronzer, the Essence Mosaic Compact Powder works great. This is $4.49, and I really like how it’s a two in one. Very convenient and easy!

This next product can also be used as a two in one. It is the Maybelline Exper Wear Eyeshadow in nutmeg. Since it is a nice dark brown color, you can use this as eyeshadow and to fill in your brows! It costs $3.99.

For eyeliner, I chose the Covergirl Perfect Point Blend Pencil. This is super cheap. It is $2.62 and works great for its price.

The Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara gives intense lash color and works amazing. This is only $3.47, and works just as great as a high end mascara.

Now I think this is the prettiest lip gloss color I have seen. This is the NYC Liquid Lip Shine in the shade Brighton Beach Peach. This is $1.97. This lip gloss would work great as an everyday lip gloss because the color isn’t too harsh.

The total of this makeup look is $24.02. Hope you enjoyed!

Pretty Little Liars Lookbook!

Hey everybody, so recently I have been obsessed with Pretty Little Liars and I noticed that all four girls have a different style so I thought it would be a good idea to recreate outfits inspired by them. Since there are four girls, I will show you four different outfits so lets get started!

HANNA MARIN- Since she used to be overweight, she felt self conscious about wearing dresses and skirts. Now that she lost weight, dresses and skirts are pretty much all she wears. Hanna has the girliest style from all four of the lovely girls.

Nars Makeup Tutorial!

Hey everyone, so sorry I haven’t made a blog post in a long time, but today I want to do a Nars makeup tutorial so lets get started!

s1396399-main-hero

So after you’ve primed your face with your favorite primer, it’s time for tinted moisturizer. You can also use a BB or CC cream, just anything light because since it’s springtime, you don’t want to be wearing heavy foundation. This is the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. This is perfect for spring because it has SPF 30. The price of this is $42, and it comes in many shades.

s1478403-main-hero-1

This Radiant Creamy Concealer has been a favorite of mine for over a year. The sponge applicator makes it easy to apply and the quality of the product is AMAZING! This concealer costs $29.

s221556-main-hero

The Nars Pressed Powder is pretty basic, but it gives your face a smooth, natural-looking finish that every girl wants and this costs $35.

s1203157-main-hero

So for eyeshadow today, we are going to be using their Duo Eyeshadow in the shades electric aubergine/graphite. Put electric aubergine on your lid and graphite in your crease working your way up to your outer V. Be sure to blend, blend, blend! This costs $35. I think this is the perfect eyeshadow look for spring!

s1444249-main-hero

For eyeliner, you want to keep it simple since our eyeshadow look was kind of intense. Plus, simple is always good right? This is the Larger Than Life Long-Wearing Eyeliner, and it costs $24. Just put this on your waterline and you are good to go!

s1179977-main-hero-1

This Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara makes it look like you are wearing falsies, when you really aren’t. It contains macadamia nut oil and vitamin E, and costs $25.

s248930-main-hero

I never get tired of using the overrated Orgasm blush from Nars. The color is just so beautiful, especially for spring! This costs $30.

s670232-main-hero

The Casino bronzing powder is not as harsh as Laguna, but it’s still really pretty. This costs $38.

s1323435-main-hero-1

Lastly, add a pop of color on your lips! This lipgloss is in the shade Wonder, and it is such a gorgeous shade! This costs $25.

So I hope you enjoyed and be sure to follow me if you aren’t already!

My Spring Fashion Wishlist!

Hello everyone, so who’s excited for spring? I know I am! So I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you my colorful spring wishlist so lets get started!

1. Lavender Converse- I’ve always been a huge fan of Converse but this year, I’m really hoping I can get my hands on a pair of lavender ones because I just think they are more fun and unique than the black and white ones that everyone has.

Image

 

 

2. The Perfect Short Floral Dress- I feel like every girl should have a short floral dress for spring, and I don’t have one, but I’m planning on getting one. This dress is from Free People, and it’s super cute!

Image

 

 

3. A Cream Sweater- So if it’s still pretty cold where you live, but you still wanna wear that perfect short floral dress, add a cream sweater on top of it, and it will look even more cute! (at least in my opinion). This sweater is from Forever 21 AKA my life! 

Image

 

4. Jade Hunter Rainboots- In the spring, it rains a lot. Rainy weather is gloomy but you can make it fun with a pair of colorful rainboots! 

Image

 

 

5. A Navy Blue Maxi Dress- Maxi dresses are a big staple fashion piece for spring and I really like navy blue ones! I feel like navy blue looks good on everyone! This dress is from Victoria’s Secret.

Image

 

 

6. The North Face Teal Rain Jacket- So along with those beautiful rainboots, this jacket is also a fashion piece I crave. The color is beyond gorgeous, and the quality of these jackets are amazing! 

Image

 

 

7. A Pair Of Jeweled Sandals- So on sunny spring days, I want to wear a pair of super dressy jeweled sandals with a casual outfit. These are from Tory Burch, and again, the color is so pretty!
