Giving My Best Friend a MAKEOVER!!!

Hii Curly-Fries! ❤

Today I wanted to do something a bit different, so I texted my friend Katie like “Yo gurrrl, can I borrow yo facee?” She was like “Ahuh, ya whatevers.”

Sooo I dragged her out of her house and plunked her down in a chair, picking through my stash and looking for the perfect colors.

You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting….watching….anticipating this moment >:D

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND…Katie doesn’t like makeup. Which is totally understandable..considering she’s 12 and FREAKING FLAWLESS. Literally, she’s got that awesome baby-skin, no splotch, bump, or pimple in sight. I’ve been dyyyyyiiing to get ahold of her face since, like, forever. Her face is like a canvas begging for a little enhancement…and that could finally happen!!!

This is Katie, my best friend ever since we were literally babies.

She’s seriously one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met, and one of the sweetest.

Plus, she’s got gorgeous hazel eyes, the perfect button nose, and adorable freckled cheeks!

Anyway, I was just in the mood to play “Bobbi Brown”, and thankfully, Katie finally let me.

Here she is before the makeup! (Natural and gorgeous.)

And after! (STUNNING!)

There was literally nothing (except dark circles) to cover, so I put a tinted moisturizer all over her face, and a little concealer under her eyes. I set all of it with powder.

And of course, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful blush! I used my favorite, Milani’s “Dolce Pink”, brushed on the apples of her cheeks, along with some highlighter to give her skin a dewy glow.

Eyes were my favorite part. I used a lot of glittery gold, champagne, and pink hues to bring out the green in her eyes. The mascara made  HUGE difference. Seriously, her lashes stretched for miles!! I also defined her brows to make them appear more full. I loove full brows, and her gentle arch gives her a very sweet, pretty look.

Lips were simple. Balm first, then a sheer pink lipstick topped with gloss.

The end look was very natural, soft, and innocent. We let her gorgeous curls down, and she looked like a fairy princess!

In the end, she didn’t love it.

In her words, “I don’t like it because it covers up who the person is; it’s fake and unreal. I don’t “respect ” it I guess…It was made to cover up, but I don’t believe people should cover up.” 

Afterwards, I showed her how to take it off (with Cold Cream, a washcloth, and a few Q-Tips), and assured her that she’s beautiful no matter what.

Still, I’m really disappointed because NONE of my friends like makeup as much as I do….not even my best friend. I guess that’s how it goes.

JUST A GIRL ON A MISSION.

Aloha my loves.

Here I am, my hair in my signature ballerina bun with a fresh coat of lipstick, getting ready for a mission.

But then again, not really a mission. A luxurious splurge, more like.

Be prepared for a haul….a big one. I’m dying to treat myself, you know the feeling! And for the rest of the day, I’ll be exploring the MAC, Chanel, and Bare Minerals counters, finding what tickles my fancy. Image

What are you guys doing today?

KK I have to leave, my dad’s calling!!

Bare and Beautiful

Today I felt like wearing very little makeup. I brought out some of my favorite products to create a “no-makeup” makeup look, and I’m actually very happy with it!

In today’s day and age, most women strive to create that flawless, effortless look, as if they are the rarest of creatures….a natural beauty. (Not a unicorn.)

Only a few of us are successful.Image

This is my basic everyday look this summer. It’s simple, it’s clean, and has the right amount of polish.

I just love the look of luminous skin, glossy pink lips, and dark lashes…it’s a perf combo! 😀

Here are the products I used:

Elf Tinted Moisturizer in “Nude”

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in #10

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder in “Fair Clair”

Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara

MAC Lipstick in “Hot Gossip”

MAC Lipglass in “Wonderstruck”

Okay, I have to admit, this is the least amount of makeup I’ve wore in a long time. But my skin needed a break from all the heavy stuff…it was clogging my pores and making my skin look so tired! 

A lot of girls my age wear a ton of heavy makeup. You’ve probably seen the Twitter-pics, the Facebook profiles, the Instagram selfies. The thick, caky foundation, the lumpy, clumpy mascara, heavy liner, or bronzer. Makeup that makes them look worse instead of better, older instead of younger.

I think at any age under 40, GO AS BARE AS POSSIBLE. You are fresh, youthful, and beautiful. Show it off while you can!!

Kiss kiss! Stay pretty, ladies. ;}
