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!

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!

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!

Trendy Thursday- Fashion Trends I hate 2014!

I was too busy to do a post yesterday, so here’s yesterday’s post. Last year, I did a post on fashion trends I hate, and you guys really seemed to like it so I decided to do one this year so lets get started!

1. These type of shoes (I don’t know what they are called)- I’ve seen a lot of people on YouTube hauling these and I just don’t get it. How are they even cute? They look like grandma shoes taken to the next level (get it cause they are like platforms? Okay that wasn’t funny) 

 

 

2. Crazy Nail Art- Seriously?

3. Mid Length Skirts- I know most people like these, but I just think they are so unflattering and just not cute.

4. Super round sunglasses- People think round sunglasses are unique, I think they’re plain stupid….

5. Gladiator Boots- I like gladiator sandals, and boots but combined together? Not a very good idea.

What are some fashion trends you hate? Let me know in the comments! Hope you enjoyed!

There is no doubt that Pretty Little Liars is one of the best shows on Earth, and after seeing last night’s episode, I was heartbroken to see one of my favorite characters die. But at least my guess of who’s going to die was correct! Anyway, so today’s post is going to be another style steal post about Shay Mitchell! Shay has great style, and so does Emily! So today I will show you two Shay Mitchell outfits, and two Emily Fields outfits so lets get started!

Isn’t this outfit adorable! I love how she mixed a girly pink blazer with edgy black leather shorts. So daring!

Tutorial Tuesday- Upcycle Boring Clothes!

Hello there! Today’s blog post is going to be about upcycling boring clothes into something trendy and cute that you will actually wear so lets get started!

1. Fringe Bottom Shirts- This is so simple. Just get a pair of scissors and cut up the shirt from the bottom into little strips and then just roll all the strips so it looks more clean cut and you’re done!

2. Bow Jeans- Now I know everyone is not a fan of these, and to be honest, it’s not my favorite either but some people like it so I decided to include them in this post. This is also pretty simple. Just cut slits on the sides of the legs or you can just do it on one leg, whatever you like. Then get some fabric and gather the jean fabric of the slit together in the middle and you can use fabric glue to glue the ends of the fabric on the inside part so you can’t see it. This will create the bows and there you go!

Bow jeans, DIY, clothes, cute, awesome

3. Studded Shoulder Sweater- Another simple DIY, just add studs to the shoulders and you are done!
