Styling The Black Miniskirt

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

This Miniskirt became a considerable staple in my wardrobe this month. Seeing that Nordstrom’s was selling Topshop; I fancied to purchase the camel miniskirt but they didn’t carry it. As I was looking about I found this black miniskirt. It goes with a lot more than the camel colored. I noticed that this paired well with my skin tone, me being pale. With this miniskirt being quit versatile it can be worn with contrasting pieces and to various events. Here’s how I like to style the black miniskirt:

Eyeshadow For Brown Eyes

Monday, August 17, 2015

A good percentage of us have brown eyes, and when you see brands they always advertise girls with blue, green, and hazel eyes with rarely ever brown. Many people are unaware of how good brown eyes can look with different colors to make them stand out. Brown eyes have a nice neutral color that can pretty much match any color you put with them. You can make your eyes stand out ideally with

Sweat-Proof & Matte Makeup Bases

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

If you have oily skin you know its hard enough trying to keep you makeup in tact and in the summer its even harder! Here are some of my favorite products to use to keep a matte face...

Most importantly get a setting spray. I use NYX - Matte Finish spray. This is very long-lasting keeping your makeup set. I used this during Gym and sweated like a pig and this really helped keep it on. Powders are good for oily skin, but don't be afraid to use a setting spray just make sure its matte and long lasting. Matte sprays should keep you from shine and an oily look for most oily skin. Let me know what setting sprays work on your skin type in the comments!
Another matte base you need to get is the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion. I have not only have loved this myself but I know many who loves this too. Not always can concealer do the job this potion can keep from naughty creasing and help you eye shadow from running away! This is definitely worth it for those sweaty days!
Before putting on foundation you need a primer. This will give you a base for your foundation to hug. I use Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. This primer is very lightweight and smooth. This will not only prime but even out your skin tone. Love this!
Make sure to wear a wax eyeliner. Nothing worse than it making its way down your face. I love using Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil. This is also water-proof! This eyeliner is super creamy and gliding pencil that drys to not budge.
You need a lip-liner in the hot summer heat! You don't want you lip color to fly away! Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Liner in the best long-lasting lip liner! Its clear so no mess! You only have to buy one lip liner no more buying hundreds of different colors. This will keep you lips set in place with moister to not dry them out in the sun!

Make sure to wear something like these bases this summer!

Thursday, June 11, 2015


The perfect way to start summer, with bright orange nails! I think this makes my nails as excited as I am for summer! hehe it definitely is a statement. I love a good bright happy orange.

I have been loving OPI nail polishes for a while. They are my go to brand of nail polish with the exception of Sally Hanson. This is one of my favorite colors by OPI. I love how OPI nail polishes are so thick and only take one coat and dry fast.

What do you think of OPI?

How To Wear A Purple Lip

Monday, June 1, 2015
how to wear a purple lip
 
 
 
Purple lips aren't only for winter, its a fun springy/summer color too! But, sometimes it can be hard too because it can sometimes look a little tacky and unprofessional. So here are some ways you can rock it...
 
First off you want to make sure it fits your skin tone. You don't have to feel limited to the amount of purple colors that are out their, pick one that you like, there are plenty of purples out their for you. Usually if you have a warmer skin tone it works well with a color between reddish purple to purple, and if you have a cooler skin tone you could go for a range of cooler purples.
 
Keep everything else minimal, the lipstick is the spotlight and can clash with an eye shadow and add to much color. You want to keep you hair simple as well. You don't want to look like a clown!
 
Lastly, purple lipstick can make you lips look small, to prevent this simply add a clear lip-gloss to give it a normal look. For an extra, add a little bit of white eye shadow in the inner lips for an ombre lip effect. Make sure to blend it well.
 
How do you like wearing your purple lipstick?
Ps.. Love it when you comment!

How To Master The Cat Eye...

Thursday, May 7, 2015
I struggle with doing eyeliner/eye shadow on my eyes in never really works out for me. Since forever, watching makeup eye tutorials, and practicing it I finally concurred the liner part. I think it really does take time. I definitely prefer a liquid liner verses any other types. But here is my favorite trick I learned watching all the videos that I can...
 
Map out your line. Start at the inner eye and place a dot, do this to both sides where your pupil stops, then dot your crease and dot the end where ever you would like your wick to end. Place the dots where the red dots are placed. Then connect the dots!
 
 

Hope this helped you, remember to keep practicing!

IPSY MARCH GLAM BAG REVIEW 2015

Friday, March 27, 2015
 
I have been waiting so long for this...a March Glam Bag! Finally! Ipsy definitely surprised me. The floral bag looks so cute! I am currently loving all the samples. For those of you who don't know what Ipsy is it is a monthly makeup bag of 5 products that get shipped to your door for just $10. You take a quiz on what you are like example: Are you comfortable with makeup? , What kind of skin do you have? , Hair? etc...Subscribe Now! I will go in order below from my favorite to least favorite products I received.

 Cool Way hair oil is the one that got me the most. It is suitable for dry damaged hair. I personally have dried out hair from my straightener everyday. So this definitely keeps your hair nice and moisturized. I have been looking for something like this, so ipsy really helped me out there!

NYX butter lipstick is the best! It says what it means, its as moisturizing and feels like butter on your lips. I saw this color and it looked so dark, but then tried it on my lips and loved it. It is a really nice berry pinkish color. Perfect for spring!

I get really puffy eyes in the mornings and I am hoping this will help, Skyn Cool Firming Eye pads. I am hoping to use this soon, but still haven't and am super excited to use it.  I have a good feeling this is going to be a really nice product.

I haven't used the BB cushion yet, but it does contain a variety of four shades. I think that I could use all of them, like to use the darkest one for contouring.

What are your favorite products from ipsy?

February Faves 2015!

Friday, February 27, 2015
 
February has been great, with my birthday, snow, and lots of beauty fun. I am so glad February is one month closer to summer. I know its weird, but I am really looking forward to summer and its only the end of February. I'm already searching for new bikinis.
 
The first thing I have been loving this month is my Lavender Chamomile Body Mist by Sleep.
This smell is very relaxing with its sweetness, but a little sour. Its definitely a strong scent. I like the natural flowery scent although it kind of makes me sneeze.
I have been obsessed with hand sanitizers like forever now and wanted to get more this February, and this are the ones I liked most - the vanilla berry sorbet and Anjou pear. They are so nice and smell amazing. I personally like the fruity ones vs. the sweet sanitizers. These are really cute to pop in your purse or attach to your lunch box.
I love the EOS lotion. I got this one in Berry Blossom. I like the packaging on this, they are really easy to pack in your travel bag. They take up less space. Another thing too they smell amazingly fresh and feel so soft. EOS lotion is super effective and doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy. That is the one thing I love most about it!
Next, I've liked the Milani Brow Fix in color Light. I really haven't tried brow things at all so this was brand new to me. I wanted to get the full kit because I wanted to test things out. Turns out I had no complaints and really liked it. I have nothing to compare this too though, but they are definitely pigmented and nice for on the go too.  
I have found lots of new makeup dupes, and found lots of great reviews on Maybelline's Age Rewind Concealer. I have really liked this. It actually fits my skin tone, I wish I could find a foundation this light. The coverage is nice for blemishes and definitely buildable. Let me know in the comments below if you have any foundation requests for super pail skin.
I have been using a lot lately Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm. I love the way it makes my lips feel. So soft and smells so natural. Its definitely a lip treat!
This last one is my absolute favorite. I usually never wear bracelets, but this one I just love. I wear it almost every day. Its called an Alex & Ani Bracelet, and you can get these with any cute charm that mean something. I got the humming bird represents pursuit of dreams while keeping an open mind to spiritual awakenings.
 
It has been a great February see u in March!

  ~ Lush Is Simply Amazing...

Lush is defiantly one of my favorite stores. They have so many natural products. I have been loving all of these lush products.
Let's first start with my most favorite, the shower jelly. This jelly comes in a cute pot. It is very moisturizing and soapy. It feels like putting jelly on your skin, and sometimes can be very slick. I personally love how it smells so fresh. I almost want to literally eat it. This one is called "Sweetie Pie". The next one I got was the massage bars. I got one strawberry, and the other in a lavender scent (shaped like a hand). I like these a lot too. Love the smell. Don't worry they are more moisturizing than you think. They are definitely nice in the winter to message your dry hands with. This last one kind of goes with the message bars. It is called "Putty for your Hands".  I like using this to wash with because it doesn't sting while washing my dry hands. This one goes so well because you can use this to wash your hands and after you wash them then you can put the message bar on them. In just days you hands will be simply soft.
And that's why lush is so amazing!

The Evil Eye <> Trendy Fashion

Friday, February 13, 2015


Hello, As many of you may not know I am Greek Orthodox. If you wondering if I believe in gods and goddesses that's all myth. I believe in god. My religion is very much like catholic. I can't pin point what the difference necessarily is though. Anyway, not only has the Greeks believed in this, but many countries all around the Mediterranean sea. It is called the Evil Eye. Weather the evil eye exists or not is all a matter of opinion. The evil eye is supposed to keep the evil sprits away. The definition is, "a piercing look that conveys strong feelings of hatred, disapproval, jealousy, or malice, or that supposedly can cause harm".  
People wear them as jewelry and clothing. As a matter of fact it is a popular trend. The evil eye is blue and can look simple and elegant on a dress and jewelry. It is very unique. They come in all shapes and sizes. A lot of celebrities wear them too.

Do you wear the evil eye?

I have been loving my Patagonia ever since I got it for my birthday on Monday and it has been the best. Its so warm and soft. Everybody I saw was wanting to touch it. I found this very breathable, and super cute too. Definitely recommended!

L I F E :

I have been loving this website called Polyvore. You can put together outfits and makeup and post them. It is super fun to play around with when you are bored. You can also post them on your blog, which happens to make it better when you have nothing to post about. Spring outfit inspiration, maybe?

I haven't had this in a very long time until today. It is the nutella French toast rolls. I will tell you if your a nutella fan you will love these. They are too amazingly good. All you have to do is flatten a piece of normal bread and spread nutella all over it. Then, roll it up to dip into egg yolk. Put it on a pan and wait till it becomes golden brown. Then, sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top and eat!

3 Mascara Mistakes You Should Avoid & Tips...

Friday, January 9, 2015
 
 
 
 
 
There are a lot of great mascara choices out there, but only a few mistakes answer it all. One common mistake is that most beauticians don't use an eyelash curler. This part of the eye lash curler might seam a little unnecessary and harsh, but this will really make your lashes pop, and result in bigger looking eyes. Another mistake is pumping the mascara. This will actually put air bubbles into your tube of mascara, which will have an easier time drying out. If the mascara happens to dry out it will become flakey. Also most people tend to hold on to their mascara bottles for too long. Even when there is mascara still in the tube, toss it. Makeup can expire. I believe mascara can last a good year or so.
 
TIPS:
 
1. You should apply your mascara to the whole length of the lash instead of just the tips. This will keep it all in place.
 
2. Don't be afraid to go a little overboard with the mascara, although not too much over the limit. So stop when the lashes are evenly coated.
