makeup of the night

Hey guys!
So today I had a concert for my orchestra at my school and I did some fun makeup so I thought it would be a great idea to do a face/makeup of the night post! Also, sorry for the bad lighting/picture quality! Its really late and I just wanted to snap a quick pic so I used my laptop.

Face: I just have on a rosy blush with golden shimmer. I also filled in my brows using MAC espresso

Eyes: I used urban decay pencil liner on bourbon on my upper and lower lashlines, smudged, then used my gold glitter eyeliner from sephora over the top of it! It looked so luminous and gorgeous, but not over the top. For mascara I used clinique high impact mascara (2 coats)

Lips: I layered model co lipgloss in "strip tease", which is a nude peachy gloss with some subtle shimmer over wet n wild lipstick in dark pink frost, which is a medium pink with a heavy golden frost. 

So that was my makeup of the night! If you enjoyed this don't forget to subscribe and leave a comment below letting me know your favorite ways to incorporate glitter in to your everyday/night makeup!

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss review

Hey guys! 
So I have a review on the mirenesse glossy kiss. I got this in my birchbox and I thought that since it is a relatively unknown brand, I would do a review on it! My shade is 02 flirty kiss and it is a bright fire engine red! So here is my review!

I hope you liked this review and demo of the mirenesse glossy kiss and if you have any other products that you'd like a review on, I can try to do it for you! Also don't forget to thumbs up the video and subscribe!

Favorite Colors that POP!

Hey guys!
This is going to be a quick post on the top 5 colors that I love using for a pop of color either on my eyes or my lips. I'll also write down how I like to use it, but if you would like a more in depth coverage of this topic, I can do a video on this too!

1) Cobalt/Royal Blue
I love this color because it is just so universal! Some shades look a little better on more tan complexions or on fair skinned girls, but I think that this shade looks amazing on anyone and everyone! I like to use this on my eyes either as a winged liner on a neutral brown eye or as a pop of royal blue mascara!

2) Coral
How fitting that the color of summer is usually coral and its also on my list! I love using a coral as a bright lipstick because it makes you look tan with the orange tones in it, but it also makes it wearable with the pink and also looks super feminine. Another plus about this shade is that you can make it as intense as you'd like!

3) Purple
This is probably the most wearable color that I know of! You can really get a great pop of color by using this like the blue and using a purple tinged mascara or a purple liner on the bottom lashline!

4) Red
This is the quintessential lipstick color and it still makes a big statement! I have a review of a great red lip product coming in the upcoming days so keep an eye out for that, but this is a shade that makes you look really sexy and sophisticated when done right

5) Gold
This may be one of the most underrated colors on this list, but if you do a gold glitter eyeliner on the upper lashline, it makes a POP! It also is able to look great with neutral looks as well as any other color!

Those are my 5 favorite colors that make a POP! Let me know what yours are in the comments and subscribe for new posts daily!

Outfit of the day: casual weekend outfit

Hey everyone!
So this is going to be a nice casual outfit of the day post! You may recognize the top if you've seen my H&M haul (going to be posted in a few days :D) and I'm going to make an effort to do more outfit of the day posts with my H&M clothes!

Top: Blue burnout top from H&M! Its sheer so I'm wearing a bandeau underneath it. 

Shorts: Old Navy. Just a pair of basic denim shorts that I cuffed.

Necklace: My heart necklace from Juicy Couture! Its super sparkly and gorgeous!

Bracelet: I got this as a gift a few years ago for my birthday, but I think that its from macy's!

So that was my quick outfit of the day! Sorry about the lighting in these pictures! I changed the light in my room and everything looks a little orange, and also the quality of these pictures are terrible as well because I was using my ipod so sorry about that!

Hi guys!
I tried using a depilatory cream today instead of using my usual, handy razor. I followed all of the directions and left it on for the right amount of time and I thought that I had done everything right, but it just ended up weird! I used it on my wrist as a spot test and everything ended up fine so I thought I could use it all over my legs and underarms. I applied it onto my legs and I waited for the 10 minutes and used a washcloth to get it off, but I was still left with those straggly hairs on my legs. It's weird because some of it got off and some of it stayed on. Also on my underarms it ended up burning me! I only left it on for 5 minutes because thats when the hair started coming off, but then it started burning and it is all red and painful now! I don't know if this was just me using it wrong, but I think that I'm going to stick to waxing or a razor on my underarms and give the nair another try on my legs only. 
Let me know if veet is better than nair because I've heard that, but I only have experience with the nair with aloe and something else. Also let me know how you deal with these types of chemical burns in the comments because this has never happened to me before! Also subscribe for new videos every other day and new posts daily!

Wearable bronze smokey eyes

Hey guys!
So the first video in my "smokey eyes series" is a wearable bronze smokey eye! This is the perfect makeup to wear to work when you want to have a heavier eye, but when a normal black smokey eye is too much. I also think this is perfect for the smokey eye virgin because it is really goof proof and easy! I hope you like this tutorial!

What? Smokey eyes!

Hey guys!
So I just wanted to let you know that in the next couple of weeks, I am going to be doing some smokey eyes on my youtube channel! I love smokey eyes and I thought that they are very classic and a staple, yet who says you can't have fun with them at the same time? I already filmed a bronze smokey eye, a navy smokey eye, and I think I may do a purple one tomorrow! I just wanted to let you know ahead of time so when you see all of the smokey eyes you're not confused. Also, let me know if there are any colors that you'd love to see, but I think I may do a gold one or a silver/gray one, but I don't have the colors to do a green one. Just let me know what you'd like to see in the comments! Also subscribe to my youtube channel and/or this blog so you can be the first to get my smokey eye tutorials!

Get to know me: The Beauty Blogger TAG

Hey guys!
So Emily Eddington (emilynoel83) did this tag earlier today so I thought it would be fun to do it as well! Its kind of long so I'm going to keep this intro short...

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is very thick and wavy. Somedays it'll look straighter than usual and others it looks very wavy, but most days its just a little bit wavy. 

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I have never dyed my hair! Its au natural :D

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
Most days its just down, in a top knot, or in a ponytail. If I'm going to change it, I'll curl it, straighten it, or what I've been doing recently is changing my part! It really changes the way my hair frames my face. 

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own nails, but I rarely do that because I don't have the time or patience to do it!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I try for once a week when its the off season for cheerleading, but during cheerleading season, its no nail polish for me!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I don't remember to paint my toes frequently, so I tend to do it just whenever I remember whether that be summer or winter or any season in between!

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
I try to shoot for 10 minutes in the morning, because thats how much time that I leave myself. If I need to, I can do it in 5 minutes like this and this

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I don't do any foundation in the mornings so I focus on eyes then do my concealer because in case there are any fall out particles under my eye, I can cover it up!

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I try to collect, but I am on a very limited budget being a student and all!

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Only for special activities like a girls night out, a fancy dinner, or for cheerleading competitions! Maybe once a month at most?

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Nope! I only do simple eye makeup and concealer with a light lip for everyday. 

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Yes! I love makeup and experimenting so unless I'm sick or too tired/busy to do my makeup I'm in it!

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes. I go to gymnastics without makeup and I try to exercise without makeup, but I just feel more like myself with makeup on. 

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I don't know any exact numbers, but I know that its just a few stila, mac, urban decay, bobbi brown, and benefit products. 

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
On school nights I plan it out for the next day because it leaves me more time to do my makeup in the morning! 

16. How often do you change your handbag?
I have my school bag, which I use all the time, but for a actual handbag for the weekends, I change it up quite a bit. Almost every other week or so. 

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I wake up around 5:45 (but I'm not out of bed until 6) and I go to sleep around 9-9:30! I love my sleep :D

18. How often or when do you workout?
I have cheerleading and gymnastics 3 days a week, yoga 2 days a week, and I try to do some cardio once a week or more if I can. 

19. Left handed or right handed?

20. How tall are you?

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I am taking spanish at school so I can understand and speak "un poco espaƱol"

22. How many pets do you have?
Zero! but I want a dog!

23. How often are you on Blogger?
Everyday because I post on both my blogs daily and I read blogs all the time!

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Sometimes on other blogs, but I always read comments posted on my blogs!

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes! Its mental, but sometimes I'll write down one or two things that I really want so that I can get them when I go out. 

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I just sort of came up with livelovemakeup and then since that was taken, I added 14 (the day I was born) to the end of it! My youtube is livemakeup14 because livelovemakeup14 was already taken and I also use livemakeup14 for twitter! 

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
Iphone or my nikon coolpix, but I broke it!

28. How often do you clean your house?
I clean a little bit every day. I try to clean for 5 minutes because then it keeps my room tidy without having me spend hours doing it all in one day. 

29. What's your favorite color?

30. Do you swear?
Sometimes :/

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Its like 6 pm right now, so I'm going to do homework, shower, write a blog post for my other blog and watch some youtube videos!

Thanks so much if you read that all! I didn't  realize how long this TAG really was! I tag all of you guys to do this and you can either leave it in a comment below or leave a link to your blog if you decide to do it! Also remember to subscribe for new blog posts daily.

Top 5 makeup brands

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to do a quick post on my top 5 makeup brands both high end and drugstore that are my favorite all around. So let's get started! *these are in no particular order.

1) Wet 'n Wild
I really love the wet n wild blushers, eye shadows, and lipsticks although I am not a huge fan of their mascaras and liners and foundation type products although they are not the worst that I've tried. I think that you definitely get your bang for your buck with the blush, shadows, and lipstick and those products are comparable to more expensive ones. 

2) Benefit
The benefit products and names are too cute! I really love their boxed powders although I haven't bought too many of them. Also, their stains and highlighter like the "beams" and "tints" are great as well. My least favorite products from this brand is their lip glosses (too sheer) and their powder shadows (not enough pigmentation).

3) Maybelline
I love their lip products and their mascaras! I have had lots of great experiences with their lip products like the baby lips and the vivids and I am super excited for my next trip to the drugstore because I want to get the stain and the whispers. I also love how they have a wide range of mascaras because I can experiment and get a mascara that fits my needs perfectly! (I love the mega plush)

4) MAC
I love MAC because it is one of the more affordable "high end" brands. I love their eyeshadows because of the color range and pigmentation. Their lip glosses are amazingly pigmented too and I love how their dazzle glasses have such a beautiful glimmer to them! 

5) Jordana
This is probably one of the most underrated brands at the drugstore, but it is great! I am in love with the "mango" lipstick because its like an amped up neutral and I also love their liners and their nail polishes!

So those were my top 5 makeup brands (all around) and I would love to hear what yours are so leave it in a comment and also subscribe for new posts daily!

Smokey Semi Formal Event Makeup

Hey everyone!
So recently I had an event to go to where I needed to look a little fancier than usual, but it wasn't like a super formal event either. I decided to film myself doing this makeup look because I think that its a nice going out look or a nice makeup look for a semi-formal event. It also is mostly neutral based so you can pair it with any outfit! So I hope this is useful. 

So I hope that this video provided you with some inspiration! If you have any other video requests, leave it as a comment below and subscribe to this blog for new content daily!

I'm breaking out :(

Hey guys!
So by the title of this blog post, you can probably tell that my skin is going through a rough time and is breaking out. I just want to give you some background on my skin to start with because that's going to help you get where I'm coming from. I usually have really combo skin where my cheeks can get really dry, but my forehead and nose get pretty oily. I also tend to breakout on my forehead and cheeks, but sometimes (very rarely) I'll breakout on my nose or chin. 
Also, the only time that I really breakout (usually) is around that time of the month lol. So let's get into it. So its been getting warmer as we get farther into spring, and I think that my skin has been getting oilier. I haven't changed my moisturizer or cleanser and I still use my clarasonic so I am really confused to why I am breaking out more than usual. Also, these breakouts are ginormous and I feel bad covering them in foundation or concealer because I think that'll make it worse! So what I've been thinking is that maybe I need to switch up my cleanser or lay off the clarasonic because that may be stripping my skin of the oils (the good natural kind).
If you've been breaking out or have some recommendations for me, then please leave it in a comment! Also, subscribe to this blog for new content daily. And I can do a skincare routine or another post on what I end up doing for my acne if you want, so just let me know!

So this is my super easy, super quick, 2 minute or less eye makeup look! I hope that this helps you when you are in a rush, but still want a nice and defined look! Let me know what you think of it in the comments below, and also subscribe to my blog for new content daily!

Does your hair suffer from breakage?

Hey guys!
I just wanted to do a quick post asking for some advice! I have very thick hair and I have lots of it! Recently, (within the past few months) I've been combing through my hair using a wide tooth comb in the shower after applying conditioner and I've noticed that a lot of my hair is falling out! I know that you're supposed to lose up to 100 strands each day, but they seem to be all falling out in the shower as opposed to throughout the day. I was just wondering if there is a way that I can stop this breakage/falling out and everything. I have a few things that I'm going to try, which I'll list below, but if you have more suggestions let me know!

1) Leave my hair down more!
I usually have my hair in a ponytail or a top knot, so I think that is putting lots of stress on my strands so I'll try to leave it down and see fi it improves.

2) Switch my part
I read something on that says that some breakage happens because the hair is parted the same way day after day. I think that I'm going to switch my middle part to a deeper side part and see if that helps as well!

So those are the 2 things that I think may help my situation! If you have something that may help me, please leave it in a comment below! Also subscribe to this blog for new content daily!

Blue, green, and purple prom makeup

Hey everyone!
I know that a lot of schools have prom or have had it in the past weeks, and I have tried to get this out sooner, but I kept forgetting to upload it so I hope that this is still useful. I made this really dramatic green, blue, and purple makeup inspired by a macy's beauty ad that was sent out recently and I think it would be gorgeous with a mermaid style dress or a white/neutral colored dress! I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

So those were my take on a blue, green, and purple makeup look! I'd love to do some suggested videos so leave it in a comment below and I'll try to do it! Also, subscribe for new content daily!

Do you have a makeup style?

Hey guys!
This is just going to be a post about makeup styles and what I consider my styles to be. This is just a "sisi thinks" type post so if you want to read something more substantial like a tutorial or review then just click away, but here we go. 
I would categorize my makeup style into casual, fast, easy, neutral (for the most part), and defining. I say fast easy and casual because thats what I normally do on a day to day basis because I like to do it in 10 minutes or less, but still look put together and ready for the day. I also like neutral and defining because I think that some of the prettiest shades on my dark brown/black eyes are coppers and bronzes and other warm neutrals and also defining because there is nothing in the world prettier than a nice defined eye (with some outer v work and liner). 
So that was my makeup style! I think its probably really boring and very common, but its also wearable and makes it very appealing to all of y'all reading my blog/watching my videos! I have to say, though, that I wish I had the face/bone structure to pull of dramatic eyes like xsparkage! So leave your makeup styles in the comments and subscribe for new content daily!

New Beauty Gurus to Check out

Hey everyone!
So I know there are millions (or at least hundreds) of beauty gurus out in cyberspace, but I wanted to do a quick blog post on some lesser known ones or popular ones that have started their channels recently. So here we go!

Chrissy Costanza:
She is a very popular singer and a member of the band Against The Current. Most people know her for her music and covers, but she recently started her own channel solely dedicated to beauty and fashion! She has a great personality and she is super cute and funny! I'll link her channel here.  

Sarah (TheBeautyBenefit01):
She started youtube a few weeks to a month ago and was the first girl to subscribe to my youtube channel (love ya!) Her videos are super great and I really love her style and her fashion videos are the bomb! I would check her out if you want great fashion ideas! I'll link her channel here

Ashleigh (Crayonstocouture)
She doesn't post videos super often, but when she does they are very great quality (she has an amazing camera!) and informative. She has lots of outfit of the week videos and outfit videos and those are my favorite types of videos from her! Her channel is here

Remington Nelson:
Possibly the most popular out of all the gurus I posted, but that is probably due to her friendship with Blair (Juicystar07). Her videos range from question and answer to hauls and reviews. She does not post any makeup tutorials, so if you want those, this is not the channel for you, but I love her personality and she is always super bubbly and happy! Her channel is here

Last but not least, I will shamelessly promote myself! I have a youtube channel, which I'd love for you to check out! I post all sorts of videos, but the main ones I've been posting are makeup tutorials, collection videos, hauls, and favorites! I'll link my channel here
So these are my new favorite beauty gurus! Subscribe to my youtube channel or my blog for new videos every other day or new blog posts daily! I'd love to hear about new beauty gurus your loving so leave them in a comment below and I'll be sure to check them out!
