Lazy Girl's Guide to Makeup

Hellllloooooo my beautiful people! So I was going to upload a video...and then I found out that the video is currently two files...and that means I have to edit them...which means it'll be like a week before that vid is uploaded....*smh* but ya know whatever today I'm going to give you guys a list of tips for a lazy girl on makeup! And even if you like spending time on your makeup, I'm sure you'll find some great tips in there for you too :)

  • Woke up late? 5 minutes to get to class? All you need to do it smack on a tinted lipbalm and curl your eyelashes. This will make your eyes look bright and awake and give a little color to your face. Oh! And don't forget to brush your teeth!
  • Run out of shaving cream? Use conditioner, it'll make your legs suuuuper soft!
  • Brighten up your eyes by swiping a light shimmery champagne color all over your lid.
  • Dry shampoo=your best friend after gym class if you don't have time to wash your hair.
  • Put foundation over your lips as a base so you don't have use lip liner.
  • Apply a nude eyeliner to your waterline to make your eyes look bigger.
  • Starbucks napkins and paper toilet seat covers make for great blotting sheets.
  • Pinch your cheeks for a quick and natural flush of color. Not to hard though!
  • Use a lighter to heat up your pencil eyeliner to make it darker and creamer, like a gel liner in pencil form.
  • Brush your teeth with your toothbrush+toothpaste dipped in baking soda, it'll make your teeth whiter without the expensive cost.
  • Stand up straight and push your shoulders back, it will make you look slimmer and more confident.
  • A smile is your best asset :)
  • Apply baby powder to your lashes in between coats of mascara for instant faslie-worthy volume.
  • Roller ball of perfume you never use? Roll it through your hair.Your hair will soak up the oil of the perfume and will smell amazing!
  • Concealer too light? Use it to highlight. Use a small concealer brush to apply to the bridge of your nose, cupid's bow, and cheekbones for a natural looking glow without the shimmer.
  • Invest in a good bb cream. It's a moisturizer, primer, foundation, and face serum all  in one. Set with powder for oily skin or a matte finish.
  • Take a rosy lipstick and apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a natural looking flush.
  • Use hairspray and a spooly to shape and set your brows.
  • Can't wait for your manicure to dry? Soak them in icy cold water for five minutes. Instantly dry!
  • Use a q-tip dipped in moisturizer/lotion to fix small mistakes in your makeup.
  • Spray hairspray on your hands and run through your roots for an added lift and bounce.
  • Don't wanna wash your face? Makeup wipes were made for you! We all do it ;)
  • Don't have the time to go get a spray tan? Fake tan at home!
  • Add a little foundation to your moisturizer for a bit of coverage with a natural finish.
Well that's it for today :) I hope you guys liked this, I totally had fun writing it! By the end of the week I'm going to try and upload a Beauty on a Budget post sooo yea! Hope you guys have a great day/week love you xoxo Kayla

Best Products of 2012

So I know this is pretty late! And I'm really sorry, but I was going to make a video of this but I've been so busy making and editing other videos and so yeah I'm just going to do it how I normally do :) I will have a December Favorites up sometime by the end of the month, it just that it's actually seperated into two files so I have to combine them and edit them and yeah so it's taking me a while. But it will be up soon. Also, as I'm writing this I'm uploading an OOTD and that should be up right after this :) Anyways let's get started! PS, these are in no particular order.

  • Tarte Lights, Cameras, Lashes! Mascara- I love this stuff! I've used it all throughout the year, Like seriously even when I try new mascaras I always end up going back to this one. I just love it.

lights, camera, lashes! natural mascara
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion- this is just one of those things that you need in your makeup collection. Its so creamy and black and smooth and it doesn't smudge and uh! go get you some okay? 
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette- okay I feel like this is in everyones 2012 favorites. It's sooo perfect for everyday use and it flatters everyone. I got this last Christmas and I still use it almost everyday.
  • Too Faced Romantic Eye Collection- I love this palette. The colors are all just sooo wearable and so flattering for all eye colors. I feel like if you have either this one or their Natural Eye palette you'll be set for a while.
Romantic Eye Shadow Collection
  • EOS lip balms- okay everyone and their brother and their mom and their cats know about these. You pretty much have to of been living under a rock to not know about them. Anyways, go buy em. They're super moisturizing 
  • Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle- This is just a great highlighting product. I feel like its nice on most skin tones it may be a little light on darker tones though. Its just a lovely pinky-champagne color with ivory vaining.
 Mineralize Skinfinish

  • Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack- it's great for a gel liner. Lasts all day with no smudging. My only thing is sometimes I wish it was darker.

  • L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara- I love this stuff. I layer it over the tarte one or just on its own and it's just fabulous in every way. I think L'oreal just makes good mascaras!

So these are just some of the things I felt like I kept going back to this past year :) I hope you guys liked this! Comment down below a link to your 2012 Favorites and I will definitely check it out! Thanks xoxo Kayla

Haul: Walmart, Sally's Beauty, Walgreens, Ebay

Hello my beauties!! So I've been shopping like every day for the past week which is why I'm just now putting this up :) So yea I went to these few places just to pic up a few things :) I also went to the mall and got clothes so that haul should be up soon too. The December and 2012 Favorites should be up sometime next week, sorry I'm super busy when I get back this weekend I'm dyeing my hair then going to visit my boyfriend in the hospital and having a sleepover with some girlfriends. So yea I hope you guys all had a great and gorgeous New Year and let's get started!!

 So these are the things I got from Walamart. Sorry but the pictures got like crazily mixed up so they're in no order what so ever and I tried to fix it and it really didn't work. So yea...

 This is the NYC Color Wheel Color Mosaic Face Powder. I was looking for just a matte bronzer and I saw this and just picked it up. When I got home I swatched it on my finger and I liked the color. But when I tried to put it on my face, the pigmentation wasn't that great and it was really hard to blend out. I probably won't be using this much, good thing it was only like 4$.
 So I got a Revlon Lipstick and the color was in Smoked Peach. Sorry the picture is upside down. Its matte and very creamy. The color is a nice pinky coral color and I can see myself using it more in the spring and summer when I'm a little tanner.

 So there's a swatch of the Revlon lipstick.
 I read some good reviews on this so I decided to pick it up. It's the Suave Professionals dry shampoo and I really like it. It was around 3 or 4$, makes my hair look nice and non-greasy, gives a little bit of volume, and smells fabulous!

This is the stuff I got from Sally's Beauty and Walgreens.  Most of it is stuff to dye my hair. I'm doing the bottom half of my hair pink. I'm sooooo excited and I'll be sure to post pictures of the process and the finished look.

This is the bleach the worker there gave to me. She said it would work better and quicker on my hair since its so dark. It's a powder bleach and you mix it with developer. I hope it works well cuz I have to get my hair to a pale yellow blonde before I can dye it pink.

This is a demi developer. The lady said to mix it with the dye to get a better workable consistency(you could also use conditioner) and then apply the dye. She said it will make the color turn out better and last longer.
 This is a 20 Volume Developer. Pretty much you mix this with the bleach to get it to work and it will help lighten your hair.
 This is the box the hair dye came in. It's an Ion Color Brilliance Brights in the color magenta. Its a semi-permanent dye so I'll probably have to re-dye it every 3 or so weeks.
 This is just the tube the dye comes in. I squeezed a little bit out and the consistency is really weird. Like an almost jelly consistency but more solid than that even. I don't know its just odd.
I got this from Walgreen's it was 3$.  Its a Wet N' Wild blush in the color Heather Silk which is a really pretty matte bright berry pink color.
 Just a swatch. I wore it today also on my cheeks and its very bright but very pretty. When i first put it on, I actually used a little too much and I had clown cheeks but I fixed it, so be light-handed with this.
 This is a Wet N' Wild mega liner in the color black. I used it today over the liner I already had on and I like it. I also did a little line on my hand and it hasn't come off yet even though its been on for hours. Its really black and opaque which makes me happy.

And lastly I picked up some Pamprin. I'm sure a lot of you have heard of it. It works really well hahaha.

I got this from Ebay. It's just a phone case for the Samsung Galaxy S1. Here's the link if you're interested:

So that's it for today! I'll try to have more up by the end of the week or next week when I get back. So yea comment down below! Love you guys! xoxo Kayla
