How To: Use Colored Eyeliner

Hey everyone! :) Today's post is going to be about how to pull off colored eyeliner. I personally really like the look of a neutral eye but with a pop of color.

Here's some examples:

If you want a post of an actual tutorial using colored liner, I can do that, but this post is going to be simply my tips on using colored liner. :) My favorite look using colored eyeliner is lining the upper lash line with black or brown,but lining the waterline with a pretty blue or purple. It's gorgeous and not overwhelming.
I really like the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Deviant. Urban Decay has amazing colored liner,but they can be a tad expensive. But they literally have every single color,if you don't mind splurging. They're seriously amazing. They have colors for every eye color!
If you have blue eyes,rosy shades look really pretty. Some people say that if blue eyeliner takes away the blue from blue eyes,but I personally don't think that's true. If you want to wear blue eyeliner,go for it! Just see what works for you.
If you have hazel eyes,greens and golds look super gorgeous.
If you have green eyes,blue looks really nice. Green on green doesn't look bad,but just be careful. You don't want to wash out your natural eye color.
And if you have brown eyes,turquoise and rusty copper colors look super pretty.
And I personally think that purple and navy go with every eye color!

I hope these tips helped you in using your colored eyeliner! :)

Back to School Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys! :) So I know I've already done a back to school tutorial,but I got a request to do a drugstore version,so that's what I'm doing! :) I decided to do a full face tutorial instead of just eyes.  Let's get started! :)

First apply your foundation. I personally like to apply mine with a sponge,but you can apply yours with a brush,your fingers,or whatever you prefer. :)

To start off the eyes,take a sand colored eyeshadow on any flat shader brush. Apply this all over your lid. Don't be afraid to really pack this on your lid to make a vibrant color. :) Also,put this in your inner corner.

Use a deep brown eyeshadow to darken up the outer corner. You can make this as smokey or as natural as you want.

This next step is completely optional. If you're a person who likes a pop of color,then you can take a blue eyeshadow and run this along your lower lash line. If you don't want a pop of color,then just skip this step.

Take a brown liquid eyeliner and apply this to your upper lash line.

Take a brown pencil liner and line your waterline.

Apply mascara. I love the wand on this one.

For cheeks,I would recommend going with a pink for school. This is a Covergirl blush in Classic Pink,which is actually my all time favorite blush.

For lips,go with a shimmery pink. Revlon lip products are really inexpensive but great quality!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! :) If you have any questions about prices of the products,feel free to ask!

School Inspired Makeup

Hey everyone! :) So today's post is going to be a back to school tutorial! This look doesn't have to be just for school,it's also great for fall in general! This look is going to be pretty simple,not over-done. Let's get started! :)

Start off with a base. Using your finger, apply this all over your lid.

With a flat shader brush take a peachy pink eyeshadow and apply that to your lid. This will really brighten up your eyes. :)

Take a brown eyeshadow on a fluffy brush and apply this to your crease. Make sure the color isn't too dark,just enough to add depth.

Take a tiny bit of a warmer brown and place it on the outer edge of you eye. You don't want this to be very dark,so make sure you're using a light hand. Also use this to darken up your upper lash line. You don't want to look like you're wearing eyeliner,but this will still give the effect of fuller lashes.

Take a highlight color. Use this under your brow and to blend.

Curl your lashes and apply mascara. Make sure to get both your top and bottom lashes. ;)

For blush,I would recommend going with a warm plum color,which is always in for fall. This one is from Smashbox,but I know MAC also has some good ones. :) Any blush that warms up your face will do.

For lips,I would recommend going with a tad darker lipstick since the eyes are so neutral.

And then if you want to use gloss,go with something that is pretty sheer but will still give your lips a nice glow. :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this school/fall inspired tutorial! :)

Stylish September

So around this time is when I start getting ready for my fall wardrobe. Fall may not be in full swing yet,but it's right around the corner! Honestly,fall is probably my least favorite season,but the clothes are still super cute! And after fall,it's Christmas! How exciting! :) Anyway,today's post is all about my September style. Personally,I love bundling up for fall,so sweaters and comfy  boots are really my thing. I love denim jackets,cute boots,simple long sleeved shirts,sweaters,dainty accessories, and darker lips. Above is a collage I put together of all my favorite fall pieces! :)

Happy fall! :)

August Favorites

Hey everyone! :) So in today's post I'll be sharing with you the products I absolutely loved during the month of August! Let's start with makeup! :)

So first off is my Clinique Even Better Foundation. My shade is called Ivory. This is a pretty full coverage foundation,which I personally LOVE. It's just a really pretty foundation.

I've also been liking the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer. The shade I have is called Neutral. This color's actually kinda dark,but I can work with it.

The next thing I'm loving is the Covergirl Invisible Concealer. I actually got this a while ago. I really like it. It's perfect for under eye circles.

Next is a blush and it's by Clinique and it's called Iced Lotus. I'm really not a big blush fan,but I actually like this one. I haven't been wearing it as much lately because I don't wear blush to school,but I still really like it.

Next is the Revlon Lip Butter in Cupcake. I am literally OBSESSED with this lipstick. Enough said. :)

For lipgloss I've really been loving Rimmel London's Stay Glossy Lipgloss in Always Lovely. It's such a pretty pink color. :)

Then I've really been loving my Urban Decay Primer Potion. I would not say I love this product. I got this about a year ago along with Benefit's Stay Don't Stray. And personally I like Stay Don't Stray a lot more. But a couple weeks ago I ran out of it,so I've been using this a lot more. And it really isn't that bad at all! ;)

Next is the Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris. I really cannot stress enough how much I love this product.

Another eyeliner I've been loving is ELF's Brightening Eyeliner in Black. It's so gorgeous on the waterline. And it's only $1!

The mascara I've been loving since around February has been the Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes. This makes my lashes soooo long!

Next,I've been getting back into my Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette. I had been using MAC colors for awhile,but lately I've been doing more looks with this. I've really only been using the golden browns,which are what I'm drawn the most towards. I've really only been wearing nuetrals for the past two months or so.

This is kinda random,but it's still beauty related. I've been really obsessed with painting my nails. Nowadays you don't see me without polish on. Right now I'm wearing Number One Nemesis buy OPI. :) Lately I've been really liking OPI polishes.

Then I've really been loving the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo. I've really noticed a difference in my hair since I've used this!

Next I've been liking my Remington Ultimate Stylist. I actually only use this as a flat iron. If anyone knows how to use this as a curling iron,will you please tell me? I've tried multiple ways and it just doesn't work.

Now I have a couple of random favorites! ;D

First,is York Peppermint Patties. These taste soooo good! And as for drinks,I really,really like the Strawberry Lemonade Powerade!

And lastly,is a song that I've shared with you guys before. It's Titanium by David Guetta feat. Sia. I know I talk about this song too much,but I literally love it so much.

That's it for my August favorites! :)

Remember 9/11

So today is the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. It's kind of hard to believe the attacks were over a decade ago. Today is a day to honor all of the victims. You are always in my prayers. Let's just take a moment to be completely thankful for everything that we have in our lives.

Stay safe,everyone.
