How-To: Boosting Up Your Glam Factor

Hey Curly-Fries. ❤ ❤

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long…I’ve missed you all so much, but there’s a million things going on right now.

Let’s get started with this How-To!

Is it prom? A night for clubbing? A wild-cool party? Do you just want to look your best, but amplified? Sparkly? Sexy? Edgy?

Well, here’s some ways to boost your “Glam Factor”, which can mean so many things. Image

FIRST: What is a “Glam Factor”??

Your Glam Factor is something that you don’t have on your own. If you’re bored of your brown eyeshadows and nude lipsticks, this look is for you!! It’s fun, pretty, daring, and at times a little weird. It can be anything from a sparkly eyeshadow, to fun hair clips, to your tallest heels, or a slash of pink lipstick…and it’s totally YOU.

Customizable. Ever-changing. Beautiful. Imperfect. YOU.

Here’s what you need to take your inner diva into the spotlight:

  • Fun makeup
  • Accessories
  • Courage

I know you may look at these three things and think… “Mmm gurrl, ya know I need more than dat!” Well, hunnybun, like I said, this look is totally customizable!

Here’s some of my FAVORITE tips for upping the glam:

Gloss it up, sugar. Gloss. It. UP.!!! In my opinion, nothing is sexier on the lips than the perfect shade of gloss. For nights out, I love a nicely opaque, gloss with a diamond shine, something that will stay put.

Buttttt, if you’re not a glossy-girl, go for your favorite dramatic lipstick. I love reds. They’re so classic, and that slash of crimson is sometimes all it takes to feel sexy! best-high-fashion-makeup--large-msg-13432493965

P.S: Some more great things include SHIMMER and GLITTER. (The two are very different :} ). You could play around with some shimmery eyeshadows, dust glitter on your shoulders, mix some in your lipgloss… Just DO NOT over-do it. A little shimmer is subtle, cute, and fun. A lot of shimmer screams “hot mess”. Foto01

Other ideas include:

Hair up, colorful eyeliner, statement jewelry, fun nails, sequins, spikes, ice bling, a wrap, wristlet gloves, whatever you want!!!

You get it ;}

Got your bling-bling? Your keys? Your powder for touch-ups?

You’re ready to hit the town.

Mission G.N.O!

G.N.O: (Noun.) Definition: “Girls Night Out”, a gender-exclusive activity where women meet to engage in social activities.

Initiative: Have a good time.

So my girlfriends and I went out on the town to a oh-so-fabulous masquerade ball to celebrate Earth Day! I felt like I should share some pictures because our costumes were AUUHMAYZING.

My friend Kaylie went as an “Aristocat”.

My other friend, Katie, went as a penguin!

The ball was FAAABULOUS. There was music, dancing, disco lights, and a cute boy who we called “Mr. Hot Sweatshirt Guy” (but we didn’t have the guts to talk to him!)

Anyways, the food sucked, but throughout the night we felt unexplainably glamorous. My friend Kaylie and I brushed glitter on our collarbones, chest, and back, so that when we danced our skin sparkled like diamonds.

(Because we danced so much, I wore Converse under my dress and not heels. Shhhh!)

We left at 11pm and went home to eat chips, gossip, rip off our uncomfortable dresses, scrub the makeup from our faces, and  remove all of our clunky jewelry.

It was an amazing night.

Talk to you later, darlings!

My Five Favorite Nail Polishes!

ON THIS EARTH, I only have about five real nail polish “favorites”.

I usually let my nails run around naked for the rest of the time, because I’m too lazy to paint them.

When I do paint them, I usually get bored of the color after about a week, but these are nail polishes I really, super-duper love. We’re going from 1 to 5, 5 being my top favorite.

Hehe. Let’s starrrrrt.

#1: 

O.P.I Nail Polish in Strawberry Fields

This color really brings out the golden undertones in my skin, and makes the shimmery, strawberry color pop even more. You only need about one coat, two is fabulous, and by then you have an opaque, juicy, strawberry shimmer that screams summer. It stays on FOREVER too, and looks really smooth on the nail.

#2: 

Essie Nail Polish in Where’s My Chauffeur?

This color is very, very pretty. I love the Essie brand, because they have so much color selection! This color reminded me of cotton candy, or the beach. It was one of those colors that instantly picked up your spirits.

#3: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Trout Pout

This is a very bright, bubbly polish. It looks like a bubblegum pink with a hint of coral, that goes on extremely creamy. It reminds me of something you would wear for a day at the beach, or to the mall with your besties, or SOMEWHERE really fun! It looks very pretty on, and complements a lot of skin tones.

#2: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Fash Pack

Image

This is one of the MOST UNIQUE COLORS I HAVE EVER SEEN. Ever. I know it looks “blah” in the bottle, but on your nails, it can look like a variety of shades.

In different lighting, it can look like a purple-brown, a cool taupe, or a creamy milk-chocolate color, and it’s SUPER glossy. Plus, it goes with basically anything and everything you have to wear!

#1: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Kerfuffle

I know what you’re thinking. “It’s washed-out pink. What makes it so special?”

Well, my friend, this color is very, very beautiful in it’s simplicity. Every girl needs that basic, creamy, ballet pink in their nail polish collection! It’s a true, timeless classic.
