4 Fave Summer Lippies!

Hi everyone! ❤

If you have stuck with me for a while, you know how I feel about lipsticks and glosses.

I luuuuuuv dem.

Anyway, summer’s coming to a close, so why not share some fresh, summery colors that I loved this season??

LET’S GET MOVIN’.

So for starters, I’m going to show TWO drugstore lippies first, then two high-end. My top drugstore lipstick choice is Revlon Super-Lustrous Lipstick in “Coral Berry”, a sweet, candied coral color that is totally reminiscent of MAC’s “Vegas Volt”. It’s creamy and fresh, perfect for a day of lounging at the beach! Image

Next, I chose a drugstore gloss that is really easy to top on anything. I picked out NYC’s Liquid Lipshine in “Nude York City” because it complements my skin tone really nicely. It’s that perfect, beachy nude that looks great on anyone! Plus, I love the applicator; it applies the color nice and even.

NOW, let’s check out two high-end lip products :3

Not gonna lie, it was a hard decision.

First, as a lipstick, I chose one from Clinique, that’s a really easy color to wear. It’s Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in “Fresh Watermelon”, a nice, deep red-pink with some sparkle. It glides on deliciously, and illuminates your pout with a light glossy look, positively beautiful! To be honest, this summer I didn’t wear a lot of lipstick, but I love this color. It gives your mouth a “I just drank fruit punch” look, very kissable.

My high-end gloss is one from MAC. Truth be told, the only high-end glosses I own are from MAC, because there’s some KILLER drugstore glosses out there!!! I picked a lustreglass in “Wonderstruck”, a warm, shimmery pink. I like it because it’s got an opaque look on the lip, so you can just put it on and go. It’s effortless, it’s long-lasting, it’s perfection. AND it smells like cupcakes!

I’m so sad summer’s almost over!!!!! We have to make the best of it, right?

Buhbye, darlings.

5 Refreshing Summer Must-Haves!!

Sooo…SURPRISE! It’s summer.

Say hello to sweaty armpits, frizzed-out hair, melting makeup, and red, swollen faces. Yippee!

WELL NO FEAR, beautiful citizens! Isabella is here to the rescue! (And she brought lemonade!)

Anyway, my point is summer can be a little…uncomfortable. Sweaty. Messy. Completely unglamorous at times. And I thought I should share some summer beauty must-haves.

These are things I’ve been using every day so far, and have been loooving! Enjoyyy.

First off, I picked Tom’s Long-Lasting Deodorant in “Fresh Apricot”..because, hey. Let’s be honest. For me, it’s nearly unbearable to walk around all day with B.O.

Plus, the smell is soo fresh…and fruity! It lasts ALL day, just like the label says!

Next is my skin-care savior…Yes-To Tomatoes Skin Clearing Facial Mask. What a mouthful!

On the darkest, most disgusting skin days when pimples, dullness, and blotching become a huge deal, this literally transforms my skin. I’m serious, after washing it off, my skin is smooth and refreshed and glowing. I’ve used up nearly three containers of this stuff! Image

After I use the mask, I need a good toner. The one I picked out to show you is one I’ve had for a while and still haven’t used up!

It’s a cleansing water by Caudalíe. Image

This is the DEFINITION of refreshing.

I just pour some on a cotton pad and use it to gently cleanse away all the icky impurities, dirt, oil, and makeup, and it leaves this delicious tingle.

It kind of smells like melons. Maybe cucumber?

Not sure…but it smells niiiiice. And I’m a sucker for good-smelling things.

Neeexxt uppp is something you guys might find dumb…but I bought it after watching Michelle spritz it on in one of her old videos.

It’s an Evian mineral water facial spray.

It’s just cold-water-mist-stuff in a pretty can.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON’T REGRET BUYING IT. IT’S FUDGIN’ AWESOME. Image

I actually bought two of the mini-sizes at Sephora for, like, 12 bucks.

On a hot day, this stuff is my best friend. It’s a really nice mist…I loooove to spray it on my arms, legs, face, back of my neck, anywhere to get that instant cold.

And now, finally, a product that isn’t skincare or something.!

Soo recently I’ve been getting into the Essie nail polishes. There’s one I specifically like…and it’s a perfect shade for summer.

Image

It can really make tanned skin pop, and the color is delectable, trendy, and sweet.

“Mint Candy Apple”, people!!!

Who doesn’t love a minty hue to cool you down on a hot summer day?

That’s all I got, folks. I really hope you check some of these products out, anyways, because they are wonderful.

If you don’t mind, I’ll be out lounging in my hammock with an issue of Vogue. ;}

Kisses.

GIRL CRUSH ALERT!

Haii guys!

I know I’ve been gone..but I was caught up in EVERYTHING. Homework, summer plans, friends, family, ect. I’ve missed all of my glamorous blogging buddies. :{

Summer has been gray and lukewarm, a blur of Pretty Little Liar marathons, mindlessly Snapchatting my friends, and Starbucks Double-Shots.

If you have never seen PLL, check it out ASAP, hun. ❤

ASHLEY BENSON

Hanna Marin is my absolute fave.

I LOVE her humor, her gorgeous curls, and her brown smoky eye she always rocks.

Out of ALL the Pretty Little Liar girls, I like her da best.

You’ll see a “How-To: Hanna Marin Look” in the future. ;}

DUECES, my darlings.

Summer Dream Look

MY DARLINGS, MY ANGEL-FACES, MY DOE-EYED BEAUTIFULS, MY GORGEOUS FOLLOWERS, MY LOVELIES, MY DOVES.

I’ve been gone for SO long and I’m so sorry.

I know I haven’t pieced together a look for a while so here ya go!

So, for starters, I picked out my ultimate dream bikini, or “midkini”, from Delias! Image

I like how it has cups..for someone who has small boobs (like me) that adds some dimension.!

Plus, the mint/floral pattern is SO CUTE. I feel like it would make tanned skin pop, and really be an eye-catcher. I’m actually ordering this midkini, ‘cuz I love it that much! ❤

Check it out here. It’s on sale, ladies!

And from Etsy, I picked out a fabulous sand-dollar hairpin to compliment the summer idea.Image

It’s super beachy, but simple enough to not be distracting. It’s totally mermaid-esque. And you’ll probably be playing in the water…so you don’t really want to have too much accessories.

And now…BODY GLITTER!! Okay, seriously, it’s not just for strippers. A little on the shoulders and legs can look really flattering and fun. Image

I picked out a body glitter from Victoria’s Secret, but a lot of companies and brands have glitter sprays, sticks, creams, lotions, or powders. You just have to look around!

Online, VS has three flavors: “Marshmallow Gold”, “Candy Baby”, and “Cocoa Bronze”. All of them sound delicious to me!

Next, why not add some fun earrings?

These ones are from the “Bauble Bar” at Baublebar.com 

84349841

I just feel like they’re simple enough to not take anything away from the outfit…but they add an adorable detail!

Off to bed, then, for sweet, summery dreams.

Summer Beauty 411

Okay, ya’ll ladies probably have a slight idea of what summer beauty’s all about.

No more dark lipstick, cream makeup, bundled-up fashion, or anything of that sort is allowed! :}

Seriously! In the summer, it’s all about color, color, color. Your goal is to not try to look like a super-skinny, pale waif, your goal is to look like you! ❤  jehane_paris_delias_swimsuit_0013_yYBotav.sized

In the summertime, I like to have the lightest possible makeup routine. Some mineral powder, lip gloss, and mascara is really all you need.

Who wants to look plastered by the poolside? NOT you, girly.

HERE’S SOME PRODUCTS I LOVE FOR THE WARM WEATHER: 

First, I chose Flirt PLUSHIOUS Liquid Velvet Lip Color in “Flirt Alert”. It’s a perfect summer color, like fruit punch!flirtlips

PLUS, it’s glossy and fun and makes your lips look so juicy!

And then, of course, you may ask about foundation. Hun, here’s a rule: NO CREAMS, only light liquids and powders. matte-mineral-makeup

My summer foundation is Bare Minerals Matte. I love the stuff! If you want a healthy, flawless glow, check this stuff out.

And that’s all for today, folks! See you all soon!

SWIMSUIT CONFIDENCE

Geez..I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in FOUR WHOLE DAYS! I know..I’m bad.! :/

Anyways, heyyyy sexy ladies!

Summer’s creeping up quickly…and let’s be honest…is anyone ready to squeeze into their swimsuits?

Honestly, I feel kinda self-concious. Because, A: My tummy will never be flat-as-a-board, B: I have NO boobs, and C: My ass will NEVER look as perky as J.Lo’s.

Image

Well…I have something to say to all the girls who feel the same:

YOU SHOULD JUST EMBRACE YOUR BODY.

I mean, who cares?!?! Who. Cares.

Have fun. Dance around. Accept yourself, gurl.!!! Summers should be cherished, so soak it up. Before you know it, it’s autumn again and we’re bundled up in scarves, thick jackets, leggings, and boots.

Everybody, let’s make a pledge right now!!

This summer, I, _________, pledge to embrace what I’ve got, and STOP comparing myself to celebrities, friends, AND Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Say it! Cuz honey, NO ONE is beautiful quite like YOU.

And that’s a true story. :}

Things have been a little funky this week with drama, extra schoolwork, and everything else piled on top. I really miss you guys..and I’ll soon be back with all sorts of summer beauty posts and DIYs.

You know..life as a middle schooler is pretty confusing at times, so bare with me.

Here’s a pic of a baby cow that I thought was cute…
