I saw this tag at Elle Girl's blog and I couldn't wait to do it. I love tags because I feel as though you guys can get to know me better. I love connecting with all of you and I want you to know who I really am. 

1. If you could have anyone in the world do your makeup, who would it be? 
This is a hard question because the list can go on and on! I watch Youtube a lot and there are so many lovely makeup artists that I would kill to beat this face! If I had to pick only one person, it would probably be Jaclyn Hill from Youtube. She is so bomb, her personality is perfect and her makeup always looks stunning! 

2. What's your top makeup tip? 
I have so many different makeup tips but one that I have personally been using a lot recently was applying nude eyeliner in the waterline of your eye. Applying nude eyeliner in the waterline of your eye has many different uses. It helps make your eyes appear bigger and it also helps you appear more awake and less tired. If you don't have a nude eyeliner, get one now and try this simple tip out. 

3. What one makeup item could you not live without? 
One makeup item that I could not live without is a concealer, hands down. My biggest insecurity is my dark circles that appear to get worse and worse everyday, haha. So, with any makeup look, a concealer is so necessary. When I don't have makeup on, I still am tempted to apply some concealer. A concealer helps you appear less tired and also brightens up your face. 

4. What one skincare item could you not live without? 
MOISTURIZER. Need I say more? A moisturized face is a happy face. 

5. What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup? 
Winged eyeliner, probably. I always have to work hard and slow at my winged eyeliner because if I don't, it will come out looking horrific. I've gotten much better over the years, but it still can use some work. 

6. What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to beauty? 
When someone's foundation doesn't match the color of their neck and you can see it's too dark or too light. It absolutely kills me! 

7. What is your favourite makeup era? 
Makeup has changed drastically throughout history. I love the 20's but I would honestly have to say that the makeup trends as of now are my favorite. I love the contoured and the heavily highlighted face. 

8. What is your guilty pleasure product? 
Is it bad that I don't have a guilty pleasure product? I regret nothing! Haha. If I had to choose, I absolutely love buying eye shadow palettes and no matter how many eye shadow palettes I have that looks similar, I am still willing to buy another one, which is crazy. You only really need two or three eye shadow palettes but let's not talk about my collection.  

9. What's your underdog product? 
L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24 hr Foundation. This foundation is one of the best foundations I own, drugstore or high-end. I can easily compare this foundation to $40-60 foundations but this is only $13. People don't give this foundation enough credit, but if you try it, you will fall in love. Pinky promise!

10. What's your favourite makeup product of 2015? 
My favorite makeup product of 2015 is the Morphe 35O Palette from Morphe Cosmetics. You have probably heard of this many times, but for a good reason. This palette is right up my alley, filled with warm tones and neutrals. It has the best transition shades and is perfect for any season. These eye shadows are such great quality and the palette is such a steal. You should definitely try to get it when it's back in stock on their website. 

I tag anyone who reads this post!! Do it now!

Do-It-Yourself Primer

I know how it feels to pick up a makeup product, see the price, feel shocked and then contemplate whether it is truly worth that pretty penny. Certain makeup products, I am more inclined to spend big bucks on than others. Personally, I would willingly spend more money on a foundation that I really wanted, than on a lipstick.

One makeup product that I very rarely spend a lot of money on is a primer. I know the importance of a primer in a makeup routine, however, I hate spending my money on something that I won't actually see. I know, I know, it is still important. But I always have to convince myself that it's worth it, so I usually opt for cheaper alternatives that are just as great as the high-end primers.

Glycerin is the main ingredient in primers and it is the one ingredient that I always look for when purchasing one. Glycerin is the ingredient that gives primers it's properties that we look for, such as moisturizing, smoothing and increasing the longevity of our makeup.

So, I decided to purchase a bottle of pure Glycerin in hopes to create my own primer. You can purchase Glycerin in any drugstore for relatively cheap. I mixed a small amount of glycerin in with my moisturizer and applied it to my face. I used three parts moisturizer and one part glycerin. I applied the primer and waited about 10 minutes before beginning to apply my foundation and the rest of my makeup.

I was very impressed with the results. I had my makeup on for about 9 hours before I took it off and the primer seemed to work like any other primer that I own and love. My makeup looked as it did when I applied it, my skin still seemed smooth and my pores looked small, almost non-existant. The foundation appeared flawless, like I just applied it and that is what I look for in a primer. Overall, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative for a primer and one that works well, you should definitely try this. Pick up any bottle of Glycerin and mix it in with your moisturizer and voila!

Have any of you tried this before? Comment down below! :)

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit Review

As you guys may have noticed, I am a total sucker for new eyebrow products. I am always looking for another product to try. Eyebrows will frame your face and make a significant difference. Even with the most minimal makeup looks, having your eyebrows done can make others think you put in more effort than you did. With that being said, I am always looking for good drugstore eyebrow products. 

The other day, I came across the L'Oreal Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit. I haven't heard much about this product before so I decided to try it out for myself. The brow kit comes with pigmented wax and a setting powder. It also comes with a pair of tweezers, an angled brow brush and also a spoolie. I loved the fact that it came with these tools and even though they are small, they are great for traveling and when you are on-the-go. 

I got the pro kit in the shade medium to dark, which was perfect for my face. The pigmented wax is the lighter shade in the kit and is meant to be dipped into with the angled brush. The setting powder is meant to be applied last, mainly to fill any gaps that you might have. 

As far as my opinion goes, for a drugstore eyebrow product I am impressed. The tools that came with the kit are very helpful and come in handy. I like the eyebrow wax more than I like the setting powder. I found that the setting powder is slightly darker than I would like. If you appreciate a bold eyebrow, you would enjoy this kit very much. I focus the setting powder towards the ends of my eyebrows, where a dark color would be more appropriate. I am not entirely sold on it, but it is one of the better drugstore options. 

The L'Oreal Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit can be found anywhere L'Oreal is sold. It retails for $15 and can be bought here.

Have any of you tried this product? Comment your thoughts or opinions :)

8 Ways to Fake 8 Hours of Sleep

Being a blogger currently in College can sometimes become somewhat stressful. Being a student, in general, can leave me with many sleepless nights. Waking up and feeling like you look like you've had a rough night is not the best way to start your day. One of my pet-peeves is when someone tells me, "Hey, you look tired." But, of course, I know this! Puffy, red eyes, dark under eye circles and dull skin are clear indicators that you haven't slept enough. But even though you haven't had a good night sleep, that doesn't mean you should look like it! Well, I've compiled 10 ways to fake it as though you have had 8 hours of sleep, even when you haven't.

1. Hydrate your Skin

Usually when we're tired, our skin will show it by being lackluster and dull. Hydrating your skin is the best first step to waking up your skin. Use a denser, thicker moisturizer that will surely do the trick. Not only will this leave your skin hydrated and awake, but this will also leave a great base for your makeup.

2. Concealer, concealer, concealer.

Concealer is the key to covering up dark circles underneath your eyes. When you're tired, the first place that it can be shown is in that undereye area. Applying your concealer in an upside-down triangle underneath your eyes is a great way to really brighten up your face.

3. Dewy foundation or Tinted Moisturizer

Being tired does not mean that you should have dull, lifeless skin. Putting on a matte foundation is probably not the best choice for your sleepless days. Any foundation that has a dewy finish is preferred because dewy/sheer skin looks healthier and makes you appear more awake.

4. Line your Lower Lashes

Lining your lower lash line is perfect for days that you're tired. This is one of my favorite tricks, but don't use just any color! Using a nude or white eyeliner in your waterline helps makes your eyes appear bigger and brighter. I personally prefer using a nude color because it looks more natural and beige or nude colors does a better job at canceling out any redness of the eyes. If you want a more noticeable look, white eyeliner will definitely do the trick.

5. Curl Those Lashes

Curling your lashes is a great way to help you appear less tired. I love curling my lashes and that using a voluminous mascara because I notice that it really helps my eyes appear more open.

6. Illuminate that Foundation

Not only do you want a dewy foundation but because you look tired, you might want to go the extra mile. I like to put liquid illuminator and mix it in with my foundation, it makes your skin look even more awake and brightened.

7. Stay Light on the Lips

For days that you are tired, it's probably best to go for a light pink, rosy or nude lipstick. The colors in your natural complexion are always much more flattering than a dark lipstick. Dark lips add years to our face and they also can add attention to your under-eye area. Lip gloss also is great for those days.

8. Arch Your Brows 

Having full, arched brows takes the attention away from the center of your face, where your tired eyes would be. It also helps make your eyelids appear lifted. It is perfect for those sleepless nights.

25 Things that All Beauty Addicts Can Relate To

I am declaring, without shame, that I am a beauty addict. And if you're reading this, you must, in some way, love makeup as well. I am more than obsessed and addicted to makeup and I don't feel bad about that in any way. Makeup is a way to express myself creatively. You may not see the relationship you have with your makeup to be a problem, but you may be addicted. And if you can relate to more than one of these, you probably are.

1. Your favorite place in the world is Sephora, or any other makeup store. 

2. You get super excited opening up and trying new beauty products.

8. Nothing makes you happier than when your makeup is perfect. 

9. You have no shame in asking someone what highlight they have on. 

10. Once in a while, you find a makeup product that you forgot to try & wonder how that ever happened.

12. All of your friends and family ask you for makeup advice.

13. You count down the days until a new makeup product launches. 

14. You put 20 items in your cart online and then realize that you don't have the money for all of that, bringing you back to earth. 

15  You own more than 10 makeup brushes. No brush is the same! 

16. No matter how many palettes you have, when a new one is released, you feel compelled to buy it.

17. Nothing feels better than putting on your favorite lipstick.

18. You want to hurt someone when they tell you that you don't need another nude lipstick. 

19. You know the difference between BB, CC and DD creams.

20. Creating a new makeup look makes you feel like picasso. 

21. The words "limited edition" makes you want to buy 100 of them. 

22. Getting ready for a night out creates a mess that takes a hefty time cleaning up in the morning. 

23. You don't mind eating Ramen noodles for dinner if it means buying that new, pretty expensive foundation. 

24. It still takes about a half hour to get an all natural "I woke up like this" look. 

25. You can easily spend hours on Youtube watching makeup tutorials. 

So, what's the verdict? Are you addicted to beauty as much as I am? Probably.

NEW Colourpop Brow Pencils & Brow Colours

How can you not be excited for new Colourpop products, am I right? Colourpop is an amazing makeup brand, probably best known for their Ultra Matte Liquid lipsticks. It has grown a huge following in the last few years, due to their high quality products, beautiful packaging and affordable price range.
I was very excited to hear that they have come out with new eyebrow products. On March 10th, they released their new line of Brow Pencils and Brow Colours. Their brow products come in 8 different shades, ranging from blonde to jet black, meaning that you most likely will be able to find a color match for you. This is huge, considering many brow products have about three shades that are supposed to magically match our natural eyebrow color. What really caught my eye is their Red Head color. This is the first time that I have seen a ginger-friendly brow pencil that looks natural and doesn't look brick red.

The Brow Colours have a creme-gel formula and is best used with a firm, synthetic angled brush. Their Brow Pencils have a micro-sized tip, which is perfect for precision and thin, natural strokes. Both formulas are water-resistant, so don't worry about your eyebrows coming off in the pool! 
As far as the price range, the brow pencils retail for $5 and the brow colours retail for $6. Comparing to other brow pencils, you can't beat this price. You can purchase these here

Items Every Girl Should Have in Her Makeup Bag

Every girl who loves makeup needs her very own makeup bag. A woman's makeup bag is one of her
most prized possessions. And, for good reason. Whether your makeup bag is small or big, it can do wonders while traveling. Whether you're just going to work or going on a vacation, a makeup bag always comes in handy. I've put together a little list of some essentials that every woman should have in her makeup bag.

The Basics: 

1. Foundation/BB Cream 

Foundation is a must, in any makeup bag. For days that you want a more natural look, BB cream is also great. 

2. Concealer

Concealer is perfect for everyone, whether you need to cover up dark circles or you simply want to brighten up your under-eye area, a concealer needs to be in a makeup bag.

3. Mascara

Need I say it? Of course mascara is a must, it ranks high as a desert island choice. 

4. Eyeliner 

Eyeliner can put together any look, simple or glam. 

5. Lipstick/Lip gloss

Lipstick is an essential part of makeup, why not have it in your makeup bag? 

6. Brow Pencil/Brow Gel 

A girl's brows can really frame her face. Brows are super important when doing your makeup, I don't know what we did before the #eyebrowsonfleek stage. 

Some Extras:

7. Chap Stick/Lip Balm

Every girl needs lip balm for those days that her lips are feeling kind of chappy. Lip Balm is always needed before applying lipstick, too!

8. Bronzer 

Who doesn't want to be a bronzed goddess? Bronzer can make a huge difference on days you want to do something a little extra without it looking like you did something extra, right? 

9. Bold Lipstick 

I love my nudes and my pinks and even browns but when I want to make a statement, I always put some bold lipstick on. Have you ever had a day that turned into a night and you needed more nighttime appropriate makeup? Well, here you go!

10. Tweezers

Looking into the mirror and seeing a couple brow hairs that don't belong will always haunt me. Tweezers easily do the trick. Last minute cleaning of the brows never hurt anyone!

11. Makeup Remover Wipes 

Have you had those days that your makeup just happens to mess itself up, leaving you left wondering how it happened? Or a day where you expected to go home but ended up at a friend's house instead? This is where these bad boys come to play. Makeup Remover Wipes always come in handy, even when you think you won't need them. 

12. Eye Makeup Remover 

Along with makeup remover wipes, it's also smart to carry around a small bottle of eye makeup remover. That stubborn waterproof eyeliner isn't going to come out on it's own. 

13. Makeup Setting Spray 

I am obsessed with a good makeup setting spray. To be honest, I like to use a makeup setting spray after I'm done applying my makeup and also, throughout the day. Spraying your face throughout the day with some of this stuff, helps to refresh your face and makeup, making you appear more awake and fresh. 

14. Q-Tips 

Now, I know winged eyeliner is the devil we all love to hate, but sometimes I leave the house with winged eyeliner so perfect it's ready to fly and other times, I simply don't. Q-Tips are perfect for cleaning up the wings of your eyeliner throughout the day, if you see an unexpected smudge or you realize they weren't that great likeyou thought they were in outdoor lighting. 

15. Makeup Sponge 

A makeup sponge, such as a BeautyBlender, always comes in handy in a girl's makeup bag. Sometimes, we leave the house with no makeup and want to apply the makeup on-the-go. But, I like to keep a spare makeup sponge with me, just in case. And trust me, it does come in handy during some unexpected times.

10 Curly Girl Hair Care Tips to Healthy, Frizzless Curls

If you have curly hair, you know that your hair is different everyday. Some days, our curls come out perfect and other days, our curls look more like a lion's mane than actual curls. What helps achieve the ugly mane is frizz. Curly hair is extremely prone for frizz and frizz is a curly girl's worst nightmare and is pretty frustrating.  But, there are tips to help reduce that unwanted frizz. This is my list of some useful tips for curly hair to avoiding frizz.

1. Trim those Ends, Girl!

It is really easy for girls with curly hair to neglect their ends. Bu it is imperative to trim your dead-ends every 3-4 months. Trimming your dead ends helps with the growth of your hair and also the volume of your hair. Keeping your dead ends weighs down your hair, reducing the volume of your hair. Split ends are the key to frizzy hair. Cut those ends regularly and you'll help with reducing your  frizz. 

2. Rarely Shampoo & Use Tons of Conditioner

Curly, kinky and even wavy hair needs the natural oils from our scalps to avoid frizz. Shampoo'ing your hair strips your scalp of all of it's natural oils, which leaves our hair frizzy and also dry. It is best to shampoo your hair only 3-4 times a week. Regular conditioning, however, is extremely important. The more we condition our hairs, the healthier and more moisturized our hair is. Never, ever, skip conditioning. Curls succumb to dryness very easily so that conditioner is very much needed. 

3. Don't Neglect Those Deep Conditioners

Curly hair is the most healthy and moisturized when we deep condition regularly. I like to deep condition my hair twice a month. Deep conditioning gives our hair that extra boost, whenever we need it. It helps with reducing frizz and giving us the best curls we can get. 

4. Rinse With Cold Water

When rinsing out your hair, avoid rinsing with hot water because it dries out our hair and helps the frizz. Cold water seals our hair cuticles, smooths the hair cuticles, helps with hair shine and flyaway frizz. 

5. NO Brushing!

Before you freak out, I don't mean to not detangle your hair. But, curly hair should only be detangled using a wide-toothed comb or your fingers. Now, I'm not a fan of using my fingers because it takes quite a while, but all power to those who can! A wide-toothed comb is the best tool to detangle curly hair because it doesn't rip our your hair or help create split-ends like other brushes do. Also, when styling your hair, don't try to brush or even comb your hair. Leave any detangling of your hair to while your hair is wet or damp. 

6. Keep Those Curls Curly 

I know, I know. You've probably already heard this one already and tried to ignore it but you just can't. Stay away from the blow-dryer or hair straighteners! Anything with heat will fry your hair and shouldn't be used with curls. Curly hair is not resistant to heat like wavy or straight hair and is really, really vulnerable to becoming dry, frizzy and dead. I always get compliments on my curls from my fellow curly girls who straighten their hair. Stay..away. 

7. Sleep on Satin 

This is a minor tip but it has really helped my hair from the frizz and is just a couple dollars. Buying a Satin pillowcase and using that to lay your head on while you sleep is one of the best investments you can get for your hair. Cotton pillowcases create frizz while you sleep. You can find cheap ones on Amazon. 

8. Styling While Wet 

Styling your hair is easiest and best if you do it while your hair is at least damp. Trying to style your hair while it's dry won't leave you with the best look, trust me. 

9. Use a Micro Fiber Towel 

A Micro fiber towel is the best towel for avoiding frizz. When you dry your hair, stay away from the regular towels because it creates friction and then frizz with your hair. You can also opt for using a cotton t-shirt if you don't want to buy the towel.

10.  Use a Diffuser 

I've had plenty of times where I took a shower, washed my hair and needed to run out into the cold. No one wants to go out with wet hair and risk getting sick right? Use a diffuser on your blow dryer to avoid getting frizz from drying your hair. Make sure your blow dryer is on high and cold & the diffuser will work wonders. The  diffuser minimizes frizz while evenly distributing the heat throughout your hair.

All About Milani Blushes

I was never the biggest fan of blushes, until recently. My makeup collection had one random blush in it that I never really used and the only products that would go on my cheeks were my contour, bronzer and highlight. Milani blushes were the first real blushes that I bought because they looked beautiful and they weren't expensive, so that was perfect. They truly changed the blush game for me. Ever since I've tried them, I have a new found respect for blushes and I use them almost every time I put a full face of makeup on.

Milani Baked Blushes - $8.49

The Milani Baked Blushes were the craze all of last year, and for good reason. The Milani Baked Blushes are truly amazing blushes and for many reasons. They're silky and have great pigmentation. Because they're baked, they last for quite a long time on the cheeks. They are really buildable so you can apply as much as you would like,  Their colors are so beautiful, two of my favorites are Rose D'Oro and Luminoso. Rose D'Oro is a soft rose color with a golden glow and Luminoso is a luminous peach color. They are both cult favorites. 

Milani's Rose Powder Blushes - $8.99

Can we really talk about this packaging though? For a drugstore blush, these are so beautiful. It's gorgeous in it's compacts because of the beautiful rose design that it has and even more beautiful on the cheeks. Their colors are all beautiful, available in various pinks, reds and a bright coral. My favorite colors are Romantic Rose and Coral Cove. Warm Petals is the perfect blush that you can use as a bronzer to really warm up your cheeks.
