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.

My Butter London Collection!

Hey you charming peoples!

I thought I might share my Butter London nail polish collection, because they have such beautiful colors and finishes.

Let’s go!!

1. La Moss

This is a creamy, vampy color that you can build up super easily. The finish is very, very glossy, too, and I love how this nail polish is dark without being gothic..it’s elegant and beautiful, named after Kate Moss herself!

2. Trout Pout butter_london_nail_lacquer_in_trout_pout_shop

This is a super-hot, super-bright coral color that looks great against most skin tones! It’s got a high-gloss finish, kind of like La Moss, and looks really juicy and peppy.

3. Kerfuffle

This is a nice, neutral pink. It’s not really high-gloss, it’s more creamy, soft, and sweet, like desserts! It reminds me of a cake-pop or a cupcake, and is a nice, basic pastel.

4. Fash Pack

This color makes my skin glow, and brings out all the golden undertones. Under different lightings it can look different, from a purple-brown, cool taupe, or a delicious, milk-chocolate shade. It’s truly gorgeous.

5. Marrow images

Marrow is a beautiful purple color, that looks amazing. It’s not really too dark, it’s just borderline “purple”, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. It’s a very sexy shade.

6. Two-Finger Salute

I’m actually not too fond of this shade, but it was a gift. It’s a light, minty-teal color with gold glitter, which I don’t think looks that great on me. It doesn’t really go with anything I wear, either! There’s nothing wrong with the formula…just the color.

7. Queen Vic

This is my newest Butter London shade, and one of my favorite ones! On the nail, it’s a juicy, creamy fuchsia that reminds me of berries or lip gloss. It’s so festive! Perfect for the holidays, or a party, or school dance, or fun night out, whatever!

So that’s my collection, guys! :} I hope you enjoyed this post.

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

Image

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?

Image

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

butter_london_nail_lacquer_in_trout_pout_shop

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

Image

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.

Hair and Winter Formals

Hello my little cream-puffs!

Okay, I’ll be honest with you, my hair is totally-not picture perfect. It’s a giant, multi-hued, ombre-frizzball of SADNESS. I don’t straighten it, or spray it, or curl it, it’s just naturally wavy-curly-frizzy, a combination I like to call “wacuizzy” (wack-oo-iz-ee.) the most horrendous hair type I know of.

Image

Most of the girls at my school straighten their hair, so it’s all glossy and swishy and long, and they can actually DO STUFF with it!

I going to winter formal this month (the 19th, just 10 DAYS away!) and have NO IDEA what to do with my wacuizzy hair. I bought a dress at this place called “The Annex”. Image

It’s expresso-colored with multi-hued sequins dotted here and there, with a swishy skirt that’s fun to dance and twirl in!

IMG_0727 <—— (This is my little wristlet!)

AND, it’s a high-school formal, (and I’m only in 8th grade!), so I’ll be surrounded by people who are much older than me, which kind of freaks me out. My date totally kicked me to the curb, so I’m going with a few friends instead. I mean, come on, a beautiful dress and nowhere to go in it? What a waste!

Do you think my dress is okay? I have no idea what color to paint my nails, or what jewelry to wear, and my hair is still a complete mess…..and, oh jeez I’m rambling. Anyway, I hope you, (my small group of followers), have wonderful days and I’ll talk to you guys soon!

P.S Sorry if this was a little short. I should probably go start my homework..(I haven’t even cracked open my back-pack yet!).
