FOTD and NOTD | Green Liner | Light Lips | Ditch the Heels

I wanted to do a FOTD just to have a little change up on the blog. This is what it looked like! You can’t tell but I am smiling in the first picture.

The top picture isn’t meant to scare you it’s to give you a closer look!

Green and blue eyeliner are the main components of the look

The Naked 3 in Factory, Strange, and

Merle Norman Cream Eyeshadow in on the lid with Factory and in the crease. Strange was used on the inner corner and under my brows.

Liner is Lime Green and Blue

Mascara – Miss Manga from Loreal
Brows – Wet and Wild pencil in Mink Brown

Milani Blush in Dolce Pink

Physicians Formula Bronzer – Light Bronze

MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralized Skin Finish

Lips are Strawberry Milk from Nyx

And of course my NOTD didn’t quite work out the way I wanted. The blue in the Salon Perfect Blue Lights Striper didn’t show up on Ciate’s Ditch the Heels. You can see what I was going for.

What is the one makeup product you can’t live without?
- Lip balm. If I can’t have any other makeup product, I would need lip balm.
 
Why did you decide to start making videos?
- I figured it would go along with my blog just like everyone else was doing. It turns out it’s a lot less scary and a lot more fun than I thought.
 
What’s your favorite color?
- No favorites, but I am partial to red and pink.
 
What is your favorite brand?
I like a lot of brands, but one that I have loved since the very beginning is Urban Decay.
 
What’s one interesting thing about you?
- I can read a 500+ page book in one sitting. I don’t need to move, eat, drink, or go the restroom when I have a really good book in my hands.
 
Do you believe in UFO’s?
- I believe that anything is possible.
 
How do you feel about zombies?
- They’re scary as hell.
 
What’s your favorite color eyeshadow?
- I love bronze shades mostly.
 
Tell us about your channel and blog:
- My channel and blog are my creative outlets, where I can share what I love with whoever wants to listen. I like to focus on makeup and skin care, but I do like to throw in some DIY’s food, and life stuff too. Plus, I get to meet cool people like you!

Do You Have Gel Envy? Honest Review of Gel Envy | NOTW | First Impression

Nail of the week

 

Hello beauties!

How do you make a post about nail polish more interesting? Create your own words. So here we go.

These nails feel bananail because of the bright punch you in the face socks yellow. I am having some drynail envy because my oilbeds (oily nail beds) just don’t like anything gel, period. I was really excited to try this, but well continue to read the review.

IMG_20140710_154417817

So it looked great for the most part going on. I should mention I picked up Casino Lights (the bananail) and Jackpot (my friend tried it and I was instantly jealous so I might like it more)

I painted it on, waited 30 seconds and did a second coat. It didn’t go on smooth (could be operator error) and was a little bumpy. I don’t know if there was too much on my brush. (I will be watching more youtubers using it for my second impression.

IMG_20140710_154405493_HDR

You have to have the top coat it comes with in order to use it. After I put the top coat on it did smooth it out a bit. After I let it dry for 20 minutes and opened a Warhead (granted it was really sticking to the package because it was melty) It messed one up.

IMG_20140710_154410819

I love the color, not too keen on the way it goes on my nails. I am looking forward to trying the Jackpot though! Have you tried Gel Envy, comment below and tell me your thoughts.

Hot Pink Rage – Milani is Fueling my PINK Obsession!

Fotor070715218

I love this Milani Hot Pink Rage for several reasons.

The first is the smell. It smells like cake and vanilla deliciousness and I like lipsticks that smell good. You can see my attempt at drawing a bow to show you the color. I am all about the hot pink lipsticks and the formula of this one is great. It goes on smooth and lasts all day. I like that it doesn’t feather so if I’m in a hurry I can wear it without a liner.

IMG_20140707_135242705

Look how pretty that is! I just really love the color.

The packaging is so shiny you can use it as a mirror!! BONUS!!!

What’s your favorite hot pink lippie??

Interview with the YouTuber – Beauty and Bliss

Today’s interview is with Hope from Beauty and Bliss!

 untitled

What is the one makeup product you can’t live without?

I wouldn’t be able to live without a good finishing spray or primer that helps keep my face matte. My face is oily, so there is no way my makeup would stay in place if I didn’t use them.

Why did you decide to start making videos?

I’ve always loved makeup. I’ve done tons of makeup applications for homecomings, proms, and events. I also got addicted to watching YouTube videos and reading blogs. After about a year and a half of wishing I could do it, I made it happen!

What’s your favorite color?

Pink! I own way too much pink stuff haha.

What is your favorite brand?

For high-end, I’ve been loving Estee Lauder recently. For drugstore, I’m a huge fan of both Revlon and NYX.

What’s one interesting thing about you?

I’ll be starting beauty school in the fall for a career in makeup artistry and Esthetics.

Do you believe in UFO’s?

Not really, but I do think some of the things people come up with about them are interesting!

How do you feel about zombies?

They don’t really bother me. I watch movies and television shows with them included all of the time.

What’s your favorite color eyeshadow?

I’ve been absolutely loving YDK by Urban Decay lately!

Tell us about your channel and blog:

I started my blog in September of 2013, and I started uploading videos onto my YouTube channel about a month after that. Both are centered around beauty, but I also blog/vlog about lifestyle, fashion, crafts, and just whatever I’m in the mood for. I’m hoping to make a huge success out of my blog and YouTube channel!
