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.

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. :}

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

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.

Palladio Desert Rose Blush/Bronzer

I recently bought this at Sally Beauty Supply and thought I should review it, because, hey, if you’re like me, (always looking for awesome products), then you should know about this! ❤

So, for starters, it has five shades, two of which are more satin, the other three are slightly shimmery.

I wear this on my cheek bones, on my nose, on my eyes, and a little on my chin and forehead. It makes me glow like a natural beauty, not look obviously fake. You can mix the colors together (like I do), or wear them separate, but I honestly prefer them together. It creates a “beach peach” color: not light and cool, just slightly warm and bronzed.

PROS: 

Multitasking

Pigmented colors

Silky

Easy to blend

Good variety

Makes the face look WONDERFUL

CONS: 

Sometimes you have to make touch-ups! :{

The packaging is a simple, plastic case with a clear top with NO brand name on the front (that’s all on the back), and looks very sleek.515t_YessEL._SL1000___37915.1355886395.1280.1280

Personally, I think it looks very cute and high-end, so I, Isabella, give YOU the permission to tell ANY lie with this.

“Oh, this stuff? I bought it for 21 bucks at Sephora.”

“It was limited addition.”

“Michelle Phan HERSELF gave this to me at a meet-and-greet!”

But whatever, it’ll be our little secret. ;}

Love you all!

Hello Hello!

Hello sunshines! 

I’m just dropping in. Things have been quite hectic lately. 

This spring break I’ve talked backwards for a day, had a Star Trek marathon, went to a party, went shopping, and is planning to go to the zoo tomorrow…so my schedule has been quite filled! 

How is your guys’s spring break? What are you doing? :} 

I’m sorry if my posts have seemed “rushed” lately…(because they probably have!) 

I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m taking things slow, and trying to relish my last couple days of freedom before I’m back in school. I hope you guys aren’t rolling your eyes at me! 

Anyways..back to my Star Trek episodes. I have THE BIGGEST nerd-crush on Spock, it’s crazy! I swear we’re destined to be!

Sorry guys….miss you lots! I’ll be back soon. Promise.
