Makeup Fun Time Yay!

Hellllllllllooooooooooooo my sprinkles!! I have felt like such crap lately! Like all I want to do is puke and swallow ibuprofen because my head has been killing me!!! How are you guys holding up? Hopefully better than me!!!

ANYWAYYY, A couple of days ago I decided to attempt the impossible recreation of Rose Shocks Alice in Wonderland look. OMGGGG I love her!!! seriously if you do not know who she is pleaseeeee stop reading this and google her, facebook her, instagram her, check out her blog.  For anyone who is still with me or if you just picked up where you left off after getting to know who I’m talking about good. Her makeup is insane, crazy amazing beautiful. I found out about her almost a year ago via Pinterest (gahhhh I love pinterest). I’m not a makeup artist or guru so after watching her tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y0Zeecf9Ak) I was like I will never be able to do that. But, I tried it…I  pretty much cursed through the whole application process lol but, i did it! Go team me!

Now its not exactly like hers (I know)  that’s never going to happen! Honestly I’m pretty stoked with how it came out. If I was using the same products (sugarpill cosmetics) as she was maybeeeee I could have nailed it down a little bit better. I used a montage of things….nyx, wetnwild, and mac. It did take me a while because I suck at blending (thats where all the swearing came in) . So, yeah that’s basically it… Is there anyone you’re inspired by? leave me a comment below, lets chat !

Rant, Rant, Rant …….

1313804057fanclub

I’m a huge fan of Instagram and Facebook pages dedicated to makeup looks….LOVE IT!! Mostly because everyone has their own unique different interpretation, style, favorite products and brands. I really enjoy seeing that and gaining inspiration from others work and learning about a company that isn’t mainstream. Not all of us are born with the capability to produce the perfect canvas the first 100x that sh*t takes practice. So, I get really annoyed when people bash someone who is starting off. It takes balls knowing someone is going to say they don’t like it but, you still put it out there because you’re proud of it. And yes, by doing so that person opens up to a world of negative comments. Not everyone will see what you deem to be beautiful and that’s fine. But, when people say things like you’re really caking it on,you’re still fat, boys shouldn’t wear makeup, homo,you’re ugly….I can go on…..like really? And most of these comments coming from other girls/guys doing the same thing. Which is like wtf!! If you feel that person needs a couple tips do it in a positive manner. You don’t know the person on the other end of screen or how those hateful words will effect them. We have all been there at some point in our lives. Put out a positive message and change someone’s view for the better. Someones clown is someones beautiful princess….SO STFU and just be nice! Kthanks:) Rant ended.

The Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

Why be chained to the same old tired black dress that you wear for everything. Instead funk it up with leather, sequins, velvet, crystal, lace, and mesh just to name a few!! You want to be heart stopping, draw dropping flipping gorgeous!! Here are some of my top picks for you to get your sparkle and glam on!!

ImageImage

1. I adore both these dresses so much, either would turn heads. Question is would you wanna sin  or be an angel? 😛 They can be found at one of my favorite places online! $100 is a steal for such a stunner.

2. The dress on the left is a black mesh inset mini dress. Its extremely cute&sexy and almost a perfect match to what Kim Kardashian was seen in a month ago.I almost forgot to mention that its only $43.70! A steal!!! . The second dress is super funky reminds me of a revamped 70s disco queen. I love this metallic high-low dress and at $37.10 how could you say no? Both can be found at GoJane.com

3. I love my spikes!! This High Low Black Leather Spiked Corset Dress is a Rock Star. Its hard, soft and mega glam. It also comes in a Burgundy colored bottom. Find it in store or online at Forever21 for $29.80. The second dress is for my curvy girls! Its super sweet and is a little reminiscent of Betsey Johnson. This Multi Colored Sequined Dress just screams “Im here for the party!” and at $42.80 why shouldn’t you be?

4. Well HELLLOOOOO Hollywood Starlet!!! The first a Shimmering Silver Glam Half-Sleeve Sequin Party Dress is sensational @ $27.95. And the second In Vogue Bronze Sequin Black Peplum Dress is ultra glam and will earn you a kiss by the end of the night! this one comes in at $32.95.

5. The first dress is the ultimate little black dress. Body formed and amazing lace detail just adds the bit of special at $64.96. And last but not least the T Back Fringe Dress. Its fun/flirty. And you’ll probably end up getting hugged and felt up a lot in this by the end of the night. I believe it is the most expensive on my list but, you really can’t put a price on fringe at $129.90.

DIY Sugar Scrubs

Image

 

With the Holidays swiftly approaching, more and more people are taking a backseat to store bought gifts. So, what are they giving instead? DIY projects of course! From cookies too knitted scarves and everything in between. One of my favorite items to make are sugar scrubs! Anyone can find these ingredients around the home or on the cheap. Not to mention you control the ingredients and don’t have to worry about harsh or unknown chemicals.Here is a list of a few to get you started! Just add a jar and a fancy bow and get ready to out do any store bought scrub!!

  1. Super Sweet Sugar Scrub
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup mashed avocado (optional)
    1 cup of olive oil
  2. Coffee Body Scrub
    2 cups of ground coffee
    1/2 cup of sugar
    3 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. Yummy Chocolate Body Scrub
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup Cocoa
  4. Sea Salt Scrub
    1/2 cup sea salt
    1/2 cup of olive oil
    5 drops of an essential oil in your favorite scent. I would choose one that reminds you of the beach.

Note: For all of these scrub recipes, the instructions are the same… Mix everything together, adding in the oil last. Then scrub away and rinse with water!

The Super Sweet Sugar Scrub is best for dry, sensitive skin. The brown sugar is more gentle than the salt or coffee scrub, and the avocado will add extra creaminess to the scrub and boost the hydration it gives your skin. The Coffee and Salt Beauty Scrubs are the most exfoliating and good if you have non sensitive skin that you really want to get glowy. These scrubs will give you a level of exfoliation that the Super Sweet Sugar Scrub will not.

NOW that is what you call a RING!!! Bling Bling!!
