I Have A Secret…

Can I tell you guys a secret?

Well…I suppose it’s more of a quirk.

And I have a lot of freaking quirks.

ANYWAAYS. I have this…umm…quirk. It’s something I do all the fudgin’ time. I honestly hope I’m not the only one who does this, because then I’ll feel realllllly weird.

But, whenever I’m over at someone’s house (usually someone I don’t visit too often), I’ll…um. I’ll look through their makeup.

I’ll read every bottle, open every tube of lipstick and marvel at the color, pick through each potion and lotion like a nosey freak. BUT, I do NOT do this for the purpose to be nosey! In my opinion, makeup tells a LOT about a person. Are they the shampoo-hoarding types, or do they secretly have a double for every lipgloss? Are they the lip-balm-and-clear-mascara types, or do they have their counter buckling under the weight of cosmetics from Dior, Chanel, and Estee Lauder?

Because I have a huge fascination with beauty, I will admire each brush, each compact, with an astonishing curiosity. THIS is what they put on their faces?

Then, when I’m done, I’ll put it all back EXACTLY how it was before, wether strewn about, or tucked neatly into a little makeup pouch.

I especially loved doing this when I was a little girl. Beauty has always been a source of fascination for me.

I can still remember a time not long ago, when I was a teeny lil munchkin, with my first tube of lipstick and palette of eyeshadow. The lipstick was very pink, very glittery, and smelled very, very sweet, and I distinctly remember wearing royal blue or lime green on my eyes. YIKES!

…..Anyway I though I just might want to share my um “quirk”.

Do any of you guys do anything similar? I hope so. I just thought I should share. :}

Peace!!

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 Concealer Collection!

Concealer is a huge part of my daily routine. It’s like my under-cover agent, for concealing my dark circles, zits, redness, and any ugly part of my epidermis.

I have the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in #10, Clinique All About Eyes Concealer in #01″Light Neutral”, and Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo in “Neutral”.

If you’re wondering “Why the *bleep* do you have more dan one concealer, gurl?!?! Dat cray-cray!”

Wellllll…it’s because sometimes I’m in the mood for different textures. My Fit Me is good for travel, my Clinique is good for under eyes, and my Mineral Fusion is great for pimples. They’re like three best friends, you love them all, but they’re unique from each other!

So here’s some mini-reviews on my three concealers! ❤

MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER 

AAAAC_UQgeAAAAAAAR2JCA

These concealers come in tubes like a lip gloss, and you get a lot of product for your buck! The doe-foot applicator in the picture looks really thin and stumpy, but in real life, it seems very full, soft, and squishy on contact. The concealer itself has a thin, creamy consistency that’s very emollient…it’s probably the best thing out of the whole Fit Me line!! P.S: It has a powder finish, and if you actually SET it with a powder, it can look caky!

I use this when I’m too lazy to actually use foundation or tinted moisturizer, like when I’m on the go! I just dot a bit here and there, then blend it out! It provides a great all-over coverage.

CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT EYES CONCEALER

clinique-all-about-eyes-concealer

This is a concealer I love. You only need a MINUSCULE amount to get good coverage, and you can mix it with moisturizer for a customized tinted moisturizer. Compared to the Maybelline Fit Me, it’s more thick on the skin.

P.S:  It’s not oil free, and the ladies at the Clinique counter recommended to only use it on my under-eyes, but when I use it on acne, I don’t see or feel a difference! I guess for sensitive-skin-people, you should only use it on your eyes, but whatevs. Rebel life, yo.

MINERAL FUSION CONCEALER DUO 

300

This is my favorite cream concealer in the whole world. Blending is effortless, and you can mix your own shade! The darker peach color is what I use to correct my dark circles, and I dot the lighter one on acne. It really clings to your skin, so it lasts quite a long time! I can’t explain how much I love this…but I love it a lot. It was a bit pricey if I remember, but compared a handful of high end concealers it wasn’t that shocking. I’m actually starting to make a dent in it! ;}

Anywayyy that’s my concealer collection! I hope the reviews are helpful, and if you have any questions you can ask them in the comments. Do you guys have more than one concealer, or am I just weird? :}

Buhbye guys!

UD Fun Palette: Bite-Sized Review

Hehe hey my cutiepies!

This is a palette I purchased recently, that has to be my go-to!

Here…let me explain why….

Image

The URBAN DECAY FUN PALETTE. A festive rainbow of buttery seductiveness! Gorgeous shades for all eye colors!! AUGHHHHH CAN IT BE TRUE? DO MY EYES DECEIVE ME?

For one: The colors are sooooo buttery and light, it’s not like you’re wearing eyeshadow at all! For two: The colors are very pigmented, fun and playful. (I especially love Fishnet for my brown eyes!!) For three: They all go together so beautifully! And PLUS: The packaging is to DIE FOR.

This has to be the most beautiful UD palette I’ve ever seen!! (Besides Naked, of course.)

Nothing says “ooh la-la” more than a flatteringly smudged, rock-star eye, with depth and light in all the right place, fringy lashes, and a full, pouty lip.

You should totally check this out, it’s a steal! Six UD eyeshadows (18 bucks each) for 36 DOLLAS? Hell to the yeah!

Anyways, have a fun, colorful day! Talk to you soon.
