Everyday Foundation Routine :)

Hey everyone! :) So today I'm going to do an "Everyday Foundation Routine" post! So these products I literally use every single day. Let's get started! :)

So the first thing I do is prime my face. I use the Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer. I just have the trial size of it. I actually don't use this every single day,just days when I need my makeup to last all day long. ;) So I just get a small amount and put it all over. I don't have very oily skin,so it's okay for me to skip this step. I really,really like this primer.

Next I conceal using the Neutragena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick. I just take a small concealer brush from Coastal Scents. I take this under my eyes. I actually have really bad circles.

Lately I've been using the Clinique Even Better foundation. I use a flat top brush and apply it all over my face.

Then I set everything with either a setting powder or powder foundation,it all depends on what I feel that day. Covergirl and Maybelline have some good ones.

Then I go on to bronzer,blush,and highlighter. Blush I don't wear everyday,only if I'm feeling it,but I have been wearing it a lot lately. Bronzer I only wear in the summer,but since it's summer,I've been wearing it frequently,too. Highlighter I wear every single day. I just love it! I'm soooo obsessed with glowy skin! (:

So there's my current foundation routine! :)

Celebspiration:Lucy Hale

I don't know about you,but Lucy Hale is defiantly one of my favorite style crushes. Whenever I want inspiration(fashion or makeup) I always look at pictures of her. I'm absolutely in love with her makeup in this picture. I know the eyes are a little hard to see,so I kinda put my own twist on it,but the cheeks and lips look pretty easy to match. Ahh,it's so beautiful! Haha.  Her lips are a nice rosy color with her peachy glowy skin and brown eyes.

Here's some easy steps to achieving this look!

1.Apply your favorite foundation all over your face. I like Clinique Even Better,and it's not that expensive.
2.Apply concealer under your eyes and on any redness you may have. I use the Covergirl Invisible Concealer.
3.Set everything with a setting powder or powder foundation(depending on how oily your skin is).
4.Apply bronzer in the hollows of your cheekbones and down your neck. For this look,I personally think a nice glowy one would look nice. Also,apply a nice glowy highlighter to your cheekbones.
5.Apply a pinky-peach blush to the apples of your cheeks.
6.Apply eye primer from your lid to your browbone. I really like Benefit's Stay Don't Stray. If you don't want to splurge,a lot of $10 Benefit kits come with a travel size version of it.
7.Use a flat shader brush and apply a light shimmery brown to your lid.
8.Sweep a copper color across your crease.
9.Blend if needed.
10.Line your upper lash line with a dark brown eyeshadow.
11.Line your waterline with a black gel liner.
12.Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara.
13.Apply a glossy rose lipgloss to finish off the look.

Hope this helps! :)

My Leg Injury

Hey guys! So today I'm going to try to do a short post about my leg injury. So about three or four weeks ago I was at track practice and we were running an 800. (I'm sorry if you don't know track language,basically one lap around is a 400,and you can kinda figure it out from there) Anyway,I noticed some pain in my leg. Like almost on the side of my knee cap. So I thought I would just run it off. So I ran two more 800s and a 500 and by then it was really hurting. I even tried just walking,but that didn't help. So I finished up the 500 and then told my coaches. They look at my leg and noticed that this bone almost looked like it was popping out. So they told me they didn't want me to run for the rest of practice.

So the next day I went to the hospital. I got a lot of X-rays done and the doctor was messing around with my leg. When he was doing so,I could actually feel him moving the bone in and out of place. So he told me that I have a really unique strain that can be really bad. And if I don't let it rest for about 3 months,it could be like this my whole life. He also said he's only seen this is two or three other people.

So,because of this,I'm not allowed to do gym for the rest of the year. But I'm also not allowed to finish out my track season. When I heard this news I was devastated. But wait! :D I talked to my coaches about it,and they were really disappointed,but they said they'll still think of me as part of the team just not running. So they told me they want me to come to sports banquet,county meet,and conference meet,and all that! (: Actually,conference was on Friday and girls came in 2nd and boys came in 4th. So yeah! :)

Sorry about the lack of posts,but I'll have more up soon!
