Beauty Weekend: Get The Lip Color You Want

Happy Beauty Weekend!
This post is all about getting the lip color you always wanted. Yes, you can go out and buy these colors but why spend the money when you only need the color for one look!? This is actually the reason why i started doing this. When i needed a black lip for a Gothic look i was doing one Halloween, i didn't want to have to go out and buy a black lipstick because black lips isn't the color i am going to be wearing on an everyday or even sometime basis. So this step by step post will help you get any color you every dreamed of. Lets get started :)

* I am not affiliated with any of the brands used or mentioned
* I am not a makeup artist nor have i had any schooling


1. Starting of with a lip gloss, I suggest Wet n' Wild Mega Slicks Lip Gloss in Cotton Candy. Put this gloss on all over you lips.


2. Using Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette, grab some of this orange red color and place this color all over you lips. (you can use any color you want, but i suggest using one that is more pigmented)


3. At the end you will get this! Looks just like a lipstick color and you didn't have to go out any buy it.

10 Tips To Manage Stress


Hey fellow Shy Children! This is going to be my advice on how i manage stress. I am highly aware that everyone has different stress levels and emotions when it comes to stress. I am not a professional or have had any training to call or qualify myself as a therapist in any way. But i do believe reading and trying out my tips will at less get you in the right direction to a happy life.

Things to take into consideration before getting into the 10 tips. 
(i suggest you get out a pen and paper and make two columns for the two questions to come)
  • What in your life is causing you to stress?
  • What makes you happy in life?
Make sure you take your time answering these questions. Also answer them truthfully, Denial is only setting yourself back.
Now lets get into the 10 tips to make those stressful things happy things. Or in other words more manageable... lets get started!
  1. Make a schedule/ plan your days  I have a planner that i like to keep organized. I first write down on a piece of paper everything that needs to be done and everything that i would like to do.Then i take out my planner and turn to the month that we are in and i fill it out. I also like to color coordinate different topics. Staying organize can really eliminate a lot of the stress!
  2. Get lots of rest/ eat well  You know when you were a kid or in school and you parents and teaches always said, "Make sure you get 8 hours of sleep, to be well rested". Well it wasn't a joke! Getting the right amount of sleep will help you think and make better decisions. But you have to do one more thing to make it really work and that's eating right. Get all of your fruits and veggies.
  3. Eliminate!   Those so called friends or people that bring you down and make you feel less about yourself...Eliminate! The job you are working at and you are really not happy... Eliminate! (make sure you have another job first) Getting rid of stressful people for me has been the best thing i have ever done.
  4. Do what you love   For me this is blogging and making YouTube videos. I enjoy creating content and helping people out the best way i can.
  5. No the difference between caring and worrying   Yes, these are both ways of feeling/taking concern, but one is more intense. So caring is when you take an interest in something or someone and you want nothing but the best for them...So its positive. Now worrying is when you feel your going to get hurt... meaning negative. (I hope this made scenes)
  6. Be positive   I struggle with this a lot. Only because i trained myself at a young age that being negative and not wishing/waiting for the positive wont make me feel sad when the negative happens. This is a horrible way to live but it goes alone the lines of eliminating. So i try to tell myself everyday that," today will be the best day i will ever have".
  7. Don't excepted extras   This basically mean learning how to say "NO"! If you know your schedule is packed or already feel uneasy turn that extra down. Don't take on more than you can handle.
  8. Talk yourself through it   basically this is planing in your head or out loud. Once you come up with the plane, try it out. If it doesn't work come up with another. Sometimes you just need to say it out loud and think about it and the best idea will hit you.
  9. Try Tea   I use tea for a lot of different things and you wouldn't believe the great benefits tea has for you. So you can go to your local market and find a tea for stress but before doing that look at this article from the Dr. OZ website. He will walk you through all the different herbs.
  10. Ask for advice/ Get Help!  If there is a situation that is just really stressing you out and you really cant figure it out. Ask for help! There is someone or people who love you and really want the best for you. You can always ask me on my social networks or by email. But if you feel like you are going to harm yourself in any shape or form Get Help! There are a lot of hot lines you can call or even going to your doctor to get treated.
I hope these tips help you. If there is something in here you would like more advice on let me know. I would be more than happy to do a whole post for you. See you in my next post! <3

Forever21 Premium Cosmetics

{photo from}

So if you haven't noticed by now, I am a huge fan and a addicted shopper at Forever21. So when i heard they were going to have there own makeup line i said, "I thought they already did! Isn't Love & Beauty there line?!" Well i guess not, or maybe it wasn't up to there standards. We will never know!

On the website inside the product description stats:
  • Made by designer cosmetic brands, Forever 21 Premium Cosmetics, feature quality, high-end ingredients
  • Not tested on animals
  • Imported

Okay great! But what does "Imported" mean? It would be nice to know what country these products came or were made in.I do have to say i am not a newbie when it comes to buying makeup at forever21. So i do have some knowledge on how products used to work. But this line has WAY MORE. Ranging from face stuff like foundation, powder, primer and luminizer. There is also eye shadows, lipstick/gloss and even makeup brushesWhile going though the new premium cosmetics online there was some products i wanted to test out. But i do have to say, i wasn't expecting these products to be so high. Like $14.80USD for a foundation... REALLLY! That is more than drugstore. So if the price was on your mind too, here is my list of products i want :)... P.S.: The price is still HIGH!Forever21 Premium Cosmetics FACE MAKEUP:Blotting powder compact $12.80Concealer stick $10.80BLUSHES:  Date night $9.80EYE MAKEUP:Eyebrow kit in Dark $10.80 Sangria eyeshadow $7.80 Cappuccino $7.80 LIPSTICK & LIP GLOSSI would want every color in this section! If i do get a chance to test out any of these products i will let you guys know. So see you in my next post :)

Those Winter Dayz

Jacket: Forever21+ | Top: Forever21+ | Jeans: Red Blue Denim (Ross) | Boots: Torrid | Scarf: Dr. Jays | Purse: Elliott Lucca

Its been raining for the past couple of days here in the Bay Area. It has been much needed since everyone has been talking about a possible drought due to the lack of rain. So east coast you guys are not a lone any more, its wet over here too. But the part that kinda sucks is when you have dogs. My two dogs had to stay in side the past couple of days and were only allowed to go outside for potty time. All of that being said, here is my winter rainy day outfit. See you all in my next post <3

Beauty Weekend: V-Day Purple & Pink LOVE

Happy Beauty Weekend! This is the second V-Day look using the Hard Candy top ten eyeshadow collection palette in "smoked out" . The first one as you can see here, was using the shadow side of colors. There for you now have two look you can choose to wear. This look is all ab.out the purples though. I would suggest wearing this look if your outfit is going to be more on the neutral tone. So lets get into the look!
1. Prime your eyes using a eye lid primer. Eyes Lips face or elf has a great one and so does NYX cosmetics

2. Using the first light purple color in this palette, place this color all over the eyelids and the crease.
If you want you can place this color all the way up, under the brow bone.

3. Now pick up some of the second color. This pink/purple tone will go all over the lid too. But don't place near the tear doc.

4. The third color... LOL... Will be on the lid too. I love to pile colors/shades up.

5. This forth color will be going on the outer corner part of you lids and also in the crease.

6. This 5th color is all about the outer corner. Place as much as you want.
7. Using this L'oreal Paris Telescopic Liquid eyeliner in Carbon Black, Line the top eyelid. I like when it's thick.

8.  Now for the Mascara! Using L'oreal Paris Voluminous Original in Blackest Black place mascara on top and bottom lashes.
We are now done with the eyes, lets move onto the lips!

9. I'm all about my lips, i really love color. So we will be using Mica Beauty Cosmetics Tinted lip balm in #6 Fiesta. Before placing this color make sure your lips are somewhat moisturized.

Now we are all done ! I really hope you enjoyed the pink/purple look. If you would like a video tutorial, there will be one up on my YouTube Channel. I also take request on any makeup hing you need help with. See you next weekend with another Beauty Weekend post <3
