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!


Tested Studying Motivation Tips

Whenever I don’t get straight A’s, I feel like a complete failure. For me education is all or nothing. And I definitely don’t want nothing. I have big plans for the future. I know that as the year progresses, people tend to slack off and feel like they can’t get back on the right track because they really messed up and will have to work extra hard. While that is true, these tips I am about to give you should help ease the studying and motivate you to succeed in whatever subjects you are learning. And by the way, these tips have been tested from a straight A student so they do really work, at least for me and you should try them too!

  1. Pretend you are teaching the material. This tip works the best for me. Just pretend there is a kid that you are trying to teach and show “them” examples and why an answer is right. Usually, I do this in my head and then ask “them” what I just said. I take both the teacher and the student’s side. I know it sounds weird, but trust me this really does work. Whenever I don’t do this, I don’t score a very good grade. Studies show that you remember 10% of what you read, 20% of what you hear, 30% of what you see, 50% of what you hear and see, 70% of what you discuss with others, 80% of what you experience, and 90% of what you teach.
  2. Leave whatever you need to study on your table or somewhere nearby you. There have been many times in the past, where I studied something for a little bit, then told myself I will come back to it, and put it away. A few hours later, when I remembered that I needed to study, I felt lazy because I would have to get up and get my study materials out again, and ended up not doing it. Now, I study in intervals and leave the materials near me and keep coming back to it. If you are watching a TV show, do some extra studying during commercial breaks. You can never study enough.
  3. Look up pictures of organized notes. Pinterest and Tumblr are some good places to look for those. I have a whole board on organized notes, and they really motivate me to do as well as them. They are pretty fun to look at, to be very honest.
  4. Think about the future. You really need to start getting serious on this because this is the gateway to your future, and the more well you do right now, the more successful you will be in the future. Watching YouTube or partying with friends all the time won’t get you anywhere. That’s just temporary fun.
  5. Meditate or do yoga in breaks. Studies show that when you study continuously, you lose focus in approximately 18 minutes, so every 20 minutes, take a 5 min. break and just take deep breaths, have some water, some healthy snacks like fruits and granola bars, and do some yoga.
  6. Keep your gadgets in another room, unless you are using them for studying. When I used to keep my phone around me, I would go on it like every 7 min. and it was terrible, so I started putting my phone in another room, and there have been many times where I wanted to go on my phone, but didn’t feel like getting up to go get it, so I would go back to studying. This tip helps me SO much.

So those are all my tips, and I really hope you try it, and I hope you are successful in your studies and get your desired grade. Please follow my blog for more posts! Bye!

Album Addiction- Little Mix’s “Get Weird”

Do you have an album that you just love so much that you can’t stop listening to it? I sure do! For me, it’s all of the three Little Mix albums they have come out with throughout their career. I just love them so much and I feel like they know my exact music taste. Anyway, so last month, they came out with a new album called “Get Weird” and oh my gosh, I can’t stop listening to it. Before I get into further details about the album, let me give you some background info on the band if you are not familiar with them.

Little Mix is a band that was formed on the X Factor UK and it has 4 band members.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock

Jesy Nelson

Jade Thirlwall

Perrie Edwards (she replied to me!)

Now that you saw what these beautiful ladies look like, lets get into the album tracks.

If its bold, its a favorite of mine 🙂
  1. Black Magic- You may or may not have heard this song on the radio. It’s a fun pop song that you can’t help but sing along to.
  2. Love Me Like You- A song with a little more slower vibe but still EXTREMELY catchy. The music video’s pretty good too!
  3. Weird People- It’s got that nice 80’s vibe, which is personally not really my style so this is my least favorite, but I still love it. So if you like 80’s style music, this one’s for you!
  4. Secret Love Song- Such a sad song, but such good vocals! Jason Derulo also has a part in this.
  5. Hair- A sassy song for all my sassy girls! You will want to flip your hair while singing along to this!
  6. Grown- I absolutely love the style of this song. I would describe it as a sassy 80’s style song. I’m always in the mood to listen to this!
  7. I love you- I mostly like the chorus of this song. It’s kind of in the same tempo as Love Me Like You, but this one has a better melody in my opinion.
  8. OMG- This song is…..perfection! Ok, if you are in that mood where you think you are too good for everyone which, lets be real, we all think that sometimes (Don’t Lie!), you should listen to this. It kind of reminds me of a Charli XCX song.
  9. Lightning- I’ll have to admit, this and OMG are my absolute favorites, I can’t choose which one I like better. I have to say, this song is so creative and dramatic, and it’s just so soothing to hear! It starts out with the sound of thunder and rain, and then the beautiful verses began. I also love the Bridge part, which is the sound of a Latin choir. It’s just so unique, and I really hope it becomes a single! 
  10. A.D.I.D.A.S- No this song is not about Adidas, it stands for All Day I Dream About Sh** With You. It’s a good song to listen to when you are just laying down, but it does have some dirty lyrics, so just keep that in mind.
  11. Love Me or Leave Me- Another sad song that just makes you want to cry. I will say though, Perrie’s verse was just too good. But yeah, it’s got great vocals.
  12. The End- The main focus of this song isn’t the music, or the beat, but the lovely voice of the ladies. It sounds acoustic, and it’s pretty good, not gonna lie.
  13. I Won’t- Definetely sounds like Jess Glyne, and it’s got good background music. Pretty catchy.
  14. Secret Love Song Pt. II- Ok, if it has a part two, you know it’s gonna be good.
  15. Clued Up- A nice guitar song that has great lyrics. It reminds you not to follow others and just be you.
  16. The Beginning- I think this is the second part of The End. The reason it’s The End first and The Beginning second is because they sing about a guy who left them I guess and so it’s the end for them and the beginning of something new. This song also sounds acoustic and their voices are like heaven.


So I hope you enjoyed and please listen to this album or atleast give it a try because I think these girls have a bright future ahead of them, and they are super talented! It’s on spotify! Have a great day 🙂

Fashion Trends I’ve Been Lovin’

Hello beauties! So today I want to share with you 3 trends I’ve been kinda obsessing over recently so lets get started!

1. Head Chain- These are so cute in my opinion, and very bohemian which I love. By the way, the girl in the picture is not me, I just found this on Google Images.

2. Pencil Skirts- I’m into professional clothes, and I think this looks very feminine and lady-like.

3. Kimonos- This trend has been around for a while, but I think they are still a great trend and everyone can pull them off!

Hope you enjoyed and be sure to follow me if you aren’t already!

Lipstick As Concealer? It Actually Works Better!

Ok so I don’t know about you, but I have really bad dark circles and sometimes, concealer itself doesn’t quite get the job done. If you also struggle with the same problem, then try this new technique I found on Pinterest. All you have to do is apply some red lipstick under your eyes, blend it, then apply your concealer and blend that in as well and your dark circles should be completely covered! This worked very well for me, and hopefully, it works wonders for you too!

Want to know if red lipstick actually works as an under-eye concealer? We put it to the test for you. You’re welcome.

Lush Wishlist!

Hey you guys! So, the other day, I went on the Lush website to see what items they had, and I actually found quite a bit! So today’s post is going to be a Lush wishlist, and some of the items are going to be newer items, and some will be old ones that I’ve always wanted to try. Let’s get started!

1. Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb- This has a lemon/citrus scent and I love that because it makes me feel fresh, especially during mornings, so this is definitely for me.

2. Butterball Bath Bomb- You guys know I love buttery/creamy scents, so this one’s a must for me. Plus, this bath bomb is really good for making your skin soft.


3. Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb- Isn’t this beautiful? I think this would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for next year maybe? But this would be nice to use year-round because it has a very feminine scent of roses.

4. The Comforter Bubble Bar- I love fruity scents, and I really want to try this because from the description I read on the website, it sounds really good.

5. Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar- For a relaxing scent, you should try this. Baths should be relaxing, so this would be perfect for some pampering time. The smell is earthy and simple.

Blue Skies & Fluffy White Clouds

6. You’ve Been Mangoed Luxury Bath Melt- I’m obsessed with mangoes, so obviously this one had to be on my list!

You've Been Mangoed

7. Ice Blue Soap- Now I’m not a huge fan of peppermint, but when it comes to bath soap, I think it’s very appropriate to use them because it gives you this feeling of freshness that no other scent can do, so I would like to try this.

8. Dreamwash Shower Smoothie- I’ve been wanting to try this for the longest time, and I love the smell of lavender and tea tree so I hope I can get my hands on one of these.


9. Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo- I want this because honey is really good for your hair and makes it super shiny.

10. Curly Wurly Shampoo- There’s two reasons I like this shampoo. One, it helps tame curly hair and make sure it doesn’t get frizzy, and I need that. Two, it’s coconut scented.

11. Dark Angels Cleanser- I’ve always wanted to try a charcoal scrub, because I heard they work really well and this one caught my attention.

How To Feel Truly Beautiful

So to start out this post, I just want to say that you are so very beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not. I know that in today’s society, everyone judges you by your physical appearance, but what if we could all just stop judging a book by its cover and start looking on what is on the inside? I believe that every single human being on this planet has a beautiful side and an ugly side, because nobody’s perfect. I also believe that we can be a little less ugly and be a lot more beautiful, because your personality reflects your appearance, at least in my opinion. Imagine if we were all blind. We wouldn’t be able to judge by appearance then, would we? Today, I want to share with you how you can be beautiful naturally. So lets get started!

1. Stop Being Jealous Of Others- Jealousy is not attractive first of all, and second of all, if you loved yourself enough, you would know that being jealous is not going to help you love yourself. If someone has something you don’t, be happy for them, because they are also human being. When you start to love others, you will feel better about yourself too. If you can’t help being jealous of someone, distance yourself from them. Life’s way bigger than just that one person.

2. Smile At Your Enemies- In 8th grade, these group of girls I was friends with started bullying me, and calling me names, and I thought they would realize they were being rude if I showed them how hurt I was so I would start crying in the bathroom. They would just laugh at me more. I thought it was time to let go, and move on. I had a few classes with them, and I would start smiling when I see them. I made a few other friends, who were so extremely nice to me. When my enemies saw that I moved on, I could see the anger in their faces. It’s all about how you deal with certain situations. They’re not worth getting upset over, because again, life is way bigger than that.

3. Smile In General- A smile makes you ten times more attractive, on the outside and the inside. Nobody wants to be with someone who’s negative. When you smile, you make others around you want to smile too and be happy.

4. Stop Being Selfish- I know it’s hard to let go of some things you really want, but start looking at what you are taking from others, and see what they have. Some people, mostly parents, let you have what you want, but they don’t show you that they want something for once. Be more open-minded, and see everyone’s point of view, because while you may have everything, some people have nothing.

5. Be Confident- I knew two girls at my old school. One of them was super shy, not the most attractive on the outside, and she had no friends. Absolutely zero friends. Lets call her Sarah in this case. Then, there was another girl who had EVERYTHING. Beautiful appearance, tons of friends, tons of money, literally every materialistic thing. Lets call her Grace. We had to present something and Grace went first, and she couldn’t even present right, because she lacked confidence. I could tell people were looking down on her. She kept stuttering and laughing, and then she gave up. Then Sarah went, and wow she was so confident. I started respecting her a lot more, and so did everyone else. She started to appear a lot more beautiful, way more than Grace. By the way, Grace was also very rude to most people, so I don’t think she was beautiful at all. Anyway, moral of the story is to be confident with a kind heart, and you’ll feel good.

Fun Summer Fragrances

Hello lovelies! So today’s blog post is going to be about fun summer fragrances that I love so lets get started!


1. Only Me Passion- The packaging itself wins my heart. The smell makes the perfume very appropriate for summer time. It’s a yummy floral and fruity smell, and it reminds me of a tropical island. I think this is perfect to wear when going to the beach. You can get this on sears.com for $19.

2. Pure Pink- If you are going for something that smells sweeter, go for this perfume. It’s hard to describe how this smells. I think it smells sweet but also a little fruity. I don’t know how they do that, but this is one good-smelling perfume. You can get this on Amazon for $14.

3. Pink Caviar- So much pink, I know. This perfume smells like melons and peaches and all those juicy fruits that I love. You can get it for around $20 on Amazon.

4. Eclat D’Arpege- Ok, this packaging is too perfect. If you are not a huge fan of strong perfume scents that are too fruity or too sweet, this is the perfume for you. It’s light and fresh. This is more on the pricey side, around $80-$100, but it’s a very lovely smell.

5. Island Kiss- Lastly, another tropical smell. This perfume is pretty old, so I don’t really know where you can get it, or how much it costs, but I’m sure they sell it somewhere online. This perfume should last a long time, since it comes in a big bottle.

Hope you enjoyed, and follow me if you aren’t already!

What Color Should You Dye Your Hair?

Hi everyone! So since it’s summertime, most of you are probably getting haircuts or dying your hair, and I want to share with you what color hair dye would look best with your skin tone so let’s get started!

1. Fair Skin- Light blue is the prettiest hair color on really fair skin, just my opinion. I know it’s a little crazy for some of you, but I think many fair skinned girls can pull this off very well. I think it looks even more prettier when the hair color is not distributed evenly, like in the second picture.

2. Fair to Medium Skin- Greyish-purple would look amazing on you. I know it sounds ugly, but you’ll want to change your mind when you look at the picture below.

3. Medium Skin- People with a medium skin tone are most likely to have brown hair. I personally think you should just add some blonde highlights and you’re good to go!

4. Medium to Dark Skin- Red velvet is your color. With your beautiful exotic skin color, I can only think of red velvet to compliment it. Remember when Rihanna had the gorgeous red hair?

5. Dark Skin- I think brownish-orange would look PERFECT on you. If your hair is naturally curly, that’s even better.

Are you dying your hair this summer? If you are, what color? Tell me in the comments and don’t forget to follow me for more posts!

5 Summer Nail Ideas!

Hey everyone! So today I will share some beautiful nail art that I found on the web. I think all of these are unique and gorgeous and perfect for summer so lets get started!

1. Silver Lining- Pick two of your favorite bright summer colors, but make sure they compliment each other. With a silver nail art pen, draw a line that separates the nail and the tip. Next, you want to paint the tip a different color, and the actual nail another color. For the next nail, switch the two colors around. Here’s a picture that describes what I mean that I found on Pinterest.
