My April Faves

Friday, May 11, 2012

Well… I know it is a little far into May already, but I wanted to post about some of the things I was loving in April. Some things are tangible, some aren’t…but hey : )

1)   Laura Mercier Powder Foundation- I am in love! out ; )
2)   Beyond the Zone Rock on Dry Shampoo- Let me just say this stuff is actually a good dry shampoo… most other brands I have tried either make my hair look even more gross, or leave a white residue that you can’t get out! With this, sometimes there is a white/grey residue, but it goes away! Really refreshes hair.
3)   Shorts! Like these - I bought a pair from my university bookstore; Nike brand with my university’s name on them. I love them sooo much, comfortable, cute, overall just amazing!  So when I was home recently, I stopped at JcPenny and saw the same style, for $10! TEN dollars! The ones I bought from my bookstore were $30! Needless to say, I will definitely be going back to buy mooooore from JcPenny.  
 $10 for these? Uh YES!

4)   Tea with creamer… I already did a post about this; so yummy!
5)   SUNSHINE! It is so nice to just sit outside, and if I must, study!
6)   Nail polish (in general)
7)   Wearing bright colors! Anyone else with me on this? I love the trend- brights go with brights!
 When I was at JcPenny I also saw this shirt-I took a picture to ask my boyfriend if it the shirt showed too much skin, but he did not reply fast enough so I did not buy it! What do you think? Should I have bought it? 

8)   The feeling after turning in an exam. Knowing you can breath again, at least for a few minutes.

9)   My self-tanner. I love My FakeBake Flawless Self Tanner… I really do not want any extra aging if I can avoid it… so no tanning beds for me!
10) Last but not least- my boyfriend.  He is clearly a favorite every month, every day… but I just wanted to include him on here because I LUBBB HIM LOTTTTS ; )
 Okay... maybe the feeling is not mutual?

 That is better : )

Any favorites for you from April? Let me know in the comments below! Happy Weekend!


Makeup for My Prom Girls

Thursday, May 10, 2012

This past weekend I went to my hometown to do two girls makeup for prom. It was a lot of fun, but stressful once the time started ticking away; one of the girls that I did showed up a bit later than we had expected, so I had less time. I literally felt like I was going to pass out because I wanted their makeup perfect for their big night! Luckily, everything turned out fine. Since we were crunched on time, I did not get any pictures of the girls when I was done, but I did manage to snap a picture while in the process, and I snagged a few from their Facebook's! I wish the lighting was better, but here they are : )

 Allison & Ashley! Looooove their dresses!

 & again...

 During the process : ) Allison. Had only done foundation, blush, bronzer, and some of the eyeshadow.

Only some of the after math! There was so much more makeup but the shadow from the picture just did not let it turn out in a very "viewable" way haha.

Ashley, in the silver and black dress, wanted a look like this:
Was seriously SO simple. Loved the look so much that I toned it down a bit and wore it myself for the night! It turned out just like this, except we did a more silver color in the corner of her eye.

For Allison, she wanted a grey or smokey look she said, with a red lip. So I looked around and found this look, and it was exactly what she wanted!
 I was so excited when I started looking close at the colors... I had the exact colors to pull this off!

The girls looked gorgeous, with & without my help. It was their last prom, and I am happy to have been a part of it. Hope you all enjoy!


Bright Shorts Please : )

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

I wanted to get this post up tonight, since I will be busy with exams the next few days! A few days ago, I wore these blue shorts from American Eagle. I adore them so much! I believe I bought them on sale for $24.99 about a month ago. I did not have anyone around to take a picture for me, so this is what I have to show :
Who needs to see my face anyways! It is all about the shorts girls : )

I decided to just wear a plain white v-neck (Forever 21) with the shorts, and a long necklace from Forever 21. It is adorable; I will have to feature it in another outfit soon, but up close! I wore boring, black flip flops from Old Navy. Yesterday, I wore a shirt that I really was on the fence about. I bought it at JCPenny last weekend, and decided to wear it. The pictures I took did not turn out how I wanted them to, so this is all I have to show:

 I wore this with jean shorts!

 The shirt is so bright!

A little bit of sunshine anyone?

Let me know what you think about the shirt. I am still not sure if I like it on me. Thanks for reading!

A Never Ending Supply of Makeup

Monday, May 7, 2012

 Not my makeup!

Do you ever look at your makeup collection and get overwhelmed? As I am about to go to sleep, I started thinking of how I will get ready for my day tomorrow...all was going well until I remembered how much makeup I have. "Will I ever get through all these eyeshadows? Lipsticks, foundations, or blushes?" I mean to some, it may seem silly to get overwhelmed... but I think my feeling comes from not knowing if I will ever get use of every last bit of product I purchased. That is what gets me! The amount of money I have put toward my collection. I want to make proper use of it all, but I only have so much face to put product on (haha). Some days I wear little or no makeup, to give my skin a break; prolonging the use of my products. Plus, with new things coming out all of the time, there is always that nagging feeling of wanting to add something new or exciting to your collection. & lastly, a lot of the time, I end up not liking a product. Now what? Use it and "suffer" through it? Or try to give it away/let it sit untouched? So many different reasons why or why I would not get use of my full collection! I know this is the biggest rambled jumble of a post, but I just wanted others thoughts. Do you ever feel like you'll never finish all your products? What are you tricks to using up products you don't particularly like? Oh, and do you get what I am saying or am I just sleepy & blogging? Uh-oh : )
