Makeup In A Hurry/ Lazy Day !

Hi Beauties !

So you know that annoying feeling when you only have maybe 5 minutes to get ready or apply makeup ? Or maybe you have somewhere to be, but you don't really feel like putting make up on. I dread those days, so here are somethings I have learned along the way to make it easier. I am no makeup pro by any means, but these are some tips I turn to those days.

- When you can, just skip makeup.

- Use products that have multiple uses or quick and easy, like a cheek and lip tint, a foundation that has a built in primer/ bb cream or a tinted lip balm.

- One of the most flattering and easiest makeup looks is eyeliner and mascara or just mascara.

- If eyeliner is a must for you, pick a method that is the easiest for you, pencil, gel, liquid or eyeshadow.

- Have a go to lipstick, lipgloss or lip stain in your purse. You won't have to worry about it when you run out the door.

- One thing I like to do is mix my Covergirl 3 in 1 foundation with my moisturizer. I don't have to worry about any dry patches and it's so much quicker.

- If you are not having a bad skin day but just have some spots, use concealer to cover them. Rather than having to apply a full face of foundation, work on the spots. Also, if you have undereye circles, have a concealer that works on spots but does not crease when you use it under your eyes.

- If your absolute must is putting on eyeshadow, then use cream eyeshadow. They are super easy and blend quickly ! Or, have a skin toned cream eyeshadow, that way it brightens your eyes and looks like you spent more time on it.

- Depending the ocassion, just wear sunglasses ! They hide everything !

I hope these tips give you beauts some ideas how to speed up your look when you are in a hurry or just don't feel like putting make up on ! When you can, its always good to just skip it and let your skin breathe. With or without make up We are all beautiful.

Mani Friday !

Hi Beauts !

So I was thinking I wanted to do a nail polish segment type thing in my blog. I love nail polish and i enjoy painting my nails. When it comes to nail polish, I can tend to be a bit of a weirdo. I can stay and stare for hours and I have problems buying one at a time. I am no nail art professional by any means whatsoever. I just love nail polish and I want to give you guys, my honest opinion.

So for today I have Nicole by OPI in If The Blue Fits.

I find this polish to be so pretty. In the bottle it looks amazing, but on the nails I love it so much more. Its this frosty cobalt blue with light blue and purple pinkish glitter. All you need is two coats and you are good to go. I feel like this galaxy-isc to it and that is what brought me in. The lasting power is kinda an eh for me, it doesnt last very long until there is a chip. For me, it lasted a day and a half ?

Pardon the uncleaned edges, but is this color not beautiful ? I think this color will be beautiful during Winter time. Its not red or green, but it has this cool frozen ice feel, does that even make any sense ? Ha, well anyways thanks for reading ! Hope you have a beautiful day !

Fall Favorites !

Hey Beauties !

So we are officially in Fall, yay ! I am so excited, fall and winter are my absolute favorite seasons. Even though where I live, there is no season change whatsoever. There's just something about this time of year that makes me so excited and happy.

I normally don't do anything too bold on my lips. I will either put on clear lip balm or tinted, but when I actually want color I will go with my three favorite berry colors that i like to sheer out.

Left to Right : Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready, Revlon LipButter in Rasberry Pie and Maybelline Color Senesational in Blissful Berry

Nail Polish
During Fall, I normally lean in more for the not as bright and in your face colors, but it usually depends on what color I feel like doing.

Ladylike, Merino Cool and Shearling Darling

Fall Candle
So I absolutely love candles. I love the smell and the look of them. My favorites are Leaves and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin.

Starbucks Drink
I LOVE me Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I understand that everyone and their mother does too. But it is pure perfection this time of year. In all honesty if I could have Pumpkin Spice Latte year around, i would. Everything about is just amazing.

Scarf or Accessories
So, where I live your lucky if you can wear a scarf twice within the season. Unfortunately it doesnt get cold enough, but hey a cute scarf is a cute scarf. Most of the scarves I own are Spring-ish, but I like them because they give that pop of color to an outfit. My go to accessory is my knit droopy beanie thing. Ive had mines for a couple of years now , I think I bought it from Forever 21 or Target. I love it, it goes with just about everything and gives me that cute Fall look and you barely notice its on your head.

Haunted House, Haunted Hayride or Haunted Corn maze ?
Haunted Hayride
Corn maze
Unfortunately I have never been to either one of those, I'm not exactly sure where there is a Corn maze where I live. I go to a local halloween amusement park or Halloween Horror Night, which is the best thing ever.

Halloween Movie
One word: Halloween.

Halloween Candy
Um... All ?!

Favorite thing about Fall
I just love everything about it. I love the smells and the colors. I really enjoy the weather change, even though it doesnt where I'm from, any chance I get, I take full advantage. It makes me feel warm and cozy without a sweater. Its just awesome, need i say more ?

Now I know this tag was popular last year, but I really enjoy fall so I wanted to do it. I tag each and every one of you to do it !
