i know this is where it starts but im not totally sure how to, lets just say its been a rough week. this is definitely a beauty blog hands down but i also gotta mix in a little real life cause i mean duh real life hits like a truck. Im not really here to tell stories, im no writer which im sure you can tell, but ive come to realize its important to make time for the things you love especially when it gets neglected. Im a dental assistant, a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, a friend, & a pizza maker life can get extremely overwhelming. A few years ago i found something that truly made me happy, that gave me a feeling of butterflies and made me realize how much fun life can be when you feel good and how fun it is to be creative and step out of a shell. I just kind of love makeup & pretty much all things beauty. My mom always raised me to not wear makeup and not straighten my curly ass hair i grew up wearing t shirts as my “new clothes for school” clothes, i wore sweaters and boy sneakers and everything opposite of most girls i was surrounded by, i just feel like im kind of an odd ball because i was so incredibly different from most girls. When i started to play with makeup i found something that just made me feel beautiful with or without it it had this weird way of just making me feel comfortable in my own skin even when i dont wear it idk how to explain it thats for sure. im excited to start on a blogging journey it time to free my mind of random thoughts of life and stop neglecting what i love most. Theres gonna be reviews, emotions, makeup, & plenty of things i wanna share just to share cause es my blog lol.
Im sure everyones heard about this drink but i just wana put it out there thanks to casey holmes for mentioning this on one of her vlogs omg its the best! This is quite sweet so just be mindful I got a venti water on the side because every time i drink something sweet im like ugh need water wheres the water lol. Its a Strawberry Acai with lemonade instead of water but still get a water on the side lmao
Soooooo about a week ago or so i went out to a club obviously drank so so so so so so much the next day i was super hungover and i had to drive somewhere for 4 hours so i was like omg my stomach is in knots and i have to be in this car for 4 hours anout 2 hours into the ride we pulled over at a gas station and the second i got out of the car i saw the nearest trash can and i was blowing chunks like seriously. After throwing up i went to the restroom cleaned up a little whatever looked fine. About 2 hours later we make it to my grandmas house and i got to wash my face and remove last nights eyeliner and i flipped out into almost tears!. I had the worst rash ive ever seen all over my face under my eyes it was just a bunch of teeny tiny red dots alllllllllll over it was just bad. So basically im thinking i got the rash because i basically shoved my face in a trash can and that bacteria and grossness got me so quick but no regrets no regrets lol.That following monday my face looked a little better so i went to Ulta and visited the clinique counter i let them know what happen to me and they assured me it would go away soon(which it has now thank the heavens!) & recommended me 2 new skin care items. I have been loving the clarifying lotion so much it gives my skin a very fresh tingly clean feeling as well as the moisturizer ive been on both for about a week so ill update in about another week along with a new foundation im testing as well!
I just loooooove it. i love it sooooo much its beautiful its stunning i love the color scheme and its for sure a neutrals palette. I think if you feel as if you can live without it and its something just neutral and doesn’t catch the eye its understandable because it is very simple. Me personally i can see myself using this all the time for sure its up my ally. They blend extremely beautifully which i love they so easily kinda mesh into one another. Favorite shades hands down are jaybird, butt naked, & stark. Mind that it really is beginner friendly you can build up the shades as much as you’d like which is great all in all its a 10/10. Great Job to Laura! I’m a super proud fan .
I’m not really sure what to call this look to be honest idk if it’s vampy idk if it’s just dark but it’s the easiest someky-ish somewhat eye I’ve ever done and honestly a favorite because this had me step out of my comfort zone so much. As far as blending I just keep the lightest hand ever when buffing the shades and blending out my edges I learned that it really is the best method. when I would put even a little pressure I was like um this isn’t blending as well as I would like haha. I’ll list the shades I used down below(: All the shades are in order & all from the Jaclyn Hill Palette ❤️
In the crease :
- Silk creme
On the outter corner:
- Central Park
On the Lid:
- Soda Pop
It really was so easy the only thing is being patient because it’s really important to slowly build color. I think I just took this picture right when I was done but I just repeated the same thing on the lower lash line and put enlight on my brow bone and of course mascara & so forth.
The month of may, jesus let it be a good one. I’ve come to realize as the months go on every single time i always ask for a better one than the last and for some reason idk why. like do you guys ever feel that you have a bad day after a bad day after a bad month like its crazy to me and i don’t know if it has to do with my job or just my life in general but things get really sucky. With that being said i have some things i wanna accomplish this month and probably every month from now on.
GOALS FOR THE MONTH:
- BLOG 4 times a week
- Test 3 new makeup products
- Not suck at my job
- get a pedicure, (yes sometimes i cant find a chance to get a pedicure)
- get a haircut
- dye my hair ( okay maybe just every other month)
- sleep at least 7 hours than 5
As little as my goals sound i feel like it could definitely work or at least help improve my weeks cause man it’s getting really rough, but its hard to be good at something you’re not really passionate about. I don’t wanna settle is basically what im saying, i could have a good job but what good is it if im not good at it nor happy with it i don’t wanna live life like that you know? i think life is just too short to be unhappy.
I feel like soooooo many people will find some way to knit pick at beauty bloggers who do collabs with big brands or who even make there own line of makeup for the simple fact that they just don’t wanna admit that’s some good shit. For example easily Jaclyn Hill x Morphe collaboration she got so much shit so much hate everyone saying that it was basic it was wack blah blah and as they said that they knew they were lying. That palette is so so so so so good so good I reach for it every single time it never fails wether I’m looking for the right transition shade or the perfect inner corner highlight it’s a complete must have hands down for sure. People just tried to bring her down so hard man like stop being bitter if somethings good just say so cause you know it. Get me? With that being said people talk mad shit about Laura Lee as well but Laura is the first beauty guru I ever came across and I’ve absolutely adored her ever since I’m just a huge Laura Lee fan just looking at how she had her own collab with Violet Voss and now she has her own line like say what you want her palette cat pajamas was bomb . Com & I just love it and I’m so so so excited that I get home to my Nudie Patootie Palette OMGGGG. I just love it it’s beautiful and it looks so pretty next to her sister cats pajamas . Will update some review on it soon but I gotta give it a few tries first lol.
As I sit here on this toilet at work it literally stunned me that balance is so important . When you have so many things that matter and are sooooo important to you it’s hard to not neglect t one you know what I mean? I’m balancing my makeup love on one hand with like 2 jobs a relationship and my family on the other . I will never comprehend how people can do it like I admire any woman or man that has worked so hard to have that equal balance in there life cause it is not easy what so ever and don’t ever look fine on someone for not having it together IT GETS HELLA ROUGH. & now someone’s banging on the door so I should go back to work.
