Makeup MAYhem day 31: the end

Hey everyone!
It's the last day of makeup mayhem and I'm really happy with how this month has gone. I just wanted to sort of recap this months posts and give you my final thoughts and goodbyes to may.
So I was able to do some more outfit of the day posts in the beginning of the month, which as great because those are some of the easiest posts to do and sometimes the best ones! I also had a haul, reviews, and other tutorials and things. I ended up missing 2 days of posts this month due to my laziness/not having a computer but I truly put my effort into the posts I did! I am not going to do a strict posting schedule in June like I did this month, but I promise that I'm going to have at least 4 posts up a week! Also, if your subscribed to my YouTube channel, I'll announce my new posting schedule in an upcoming video!
So overall, this month has been fantastic and I loved sharing it with you!
Lots of love

Makeup MAYhem day 28: Well this is going to make blogging/youtubing awks

Hey everyone!
So this isn't a real makeup or beauty oriented post. Instead, its sort of about me and my channels/blogs in general. So for all of you who don't know, I have another blog (my personal one) a beauty youtube channel and this blog. So I have been using the laptop that my school gives us for the school year to edit and post and upload and everything like that, but since school is over, I'm losing this tomorrow. I just wanted to let you know that my uploading and posting schedule may be a little off for the next few days as I figure out what to use instead. I think I'll be blogging from my ipod and uploading from my home computer, but if I miss a day or two don't be mad! 
So thanks for being amazing and understanding guys!

Makeup MAYhem day 27: how to apply cream shadows (3 different ways!)

Hey everyone!
So for all of you who are new to my blog or didn't know, I got my first maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow a few months ago. I got the shade barely branded and it was the first time that I got to really experiment with cream shadow applications. I thought I would share my favorite methods with you and give you some pointers because sometimes it can be a little tricky! So here it is :D

So I hope this video was useful for you guys! If it was, give it a thumbs up and don't forget to subscribe to my blog for new posts daily throughout the month of may! Also, if there are any other brands/shades of cream shadows that I need to have or that you would like tutorials with, let me know in the comments and I'll try to pick it up soon!
I love you guys!

Makeup MAYhem day 26: Coloring your hair with JELLO?

Hey everyone!
So I wanted to do a post on some trial and error stuff that I did today regarding my hair, jello, and colors! So I wanted to tint my hair red because I thought that if I messed up, it wouldn't matter as much since school is over. So I was going to do the Kool-Aid method, but I couldn't because I didn't have any Kool-Aid so I tried to use Jello instead. I did 2 methods and I'm going to try a third tomorrow to see what I like best. So here it is. 
The first method was mixing the jello with water to dissolve it and then apply it to my hair and let it stick. This SUCKED because the jello hardened and the sugar got stuck in my hair and it did like nothing to it (also could be because I didn't leave it on for very long)
The second method was mixing the jello with conditioner to make a paste. I then ran that through my hair and covered it in a hairnet and let it sit for a few hours to penetrate. This actually worked and left my hair with a subtle red tint (looks more red in the sun) and lightened my hair noticeably.
The third method (that I'm going to do, but haven't yet) is to boil some water or get hot water and dissolve some jello in it and let my hair sit in the hot water until its cooled. I know that my friends do this with kool-aid and it works so I hope it works with jello too!
So that's what I was up to today! Let me know if you've naturally or diy colored your hair and what you've used in the comments! Also, don't forget to subscribe for new posts daily!

Makeup MAYhem day 25: Birchbox Unboxing (may 2013)

Hi guys!
So I know that I didn't post yesterday, and I'm really sorry for that, but I had a dinner with my family and I didn't get home to 11 and I didn't have a chance to post because I was really tired and after I finished getting ready for bed, it was like 12ish so sorry! But anyways, today's post is a birchbox unboxing/what's in my birchbox! So I think I say this in the video, but I figure its worth mentioning again, but I filmed a unboxing, but the footage got weird so this is sort of a what's inside my birchbox video because everything is already opened and unwrapped and all that. So here it is :D

I hope you enjoyed this video and don't forget to come back to my blog tomorrow for day 26 of makeup mayhem! Also, thumbs up this video and subscribe to this blog for new posts daily throughout the month of may!
Love you guys!

Makeup MAYhem day 22: Bright, Bold, Lipsticks

Hey guys!
 I just wanted to let you in on a little obsession of mine right now... bright lipstick! I just wanted to do this makeup musings post on my favorites :D
So I have been loving the bright corals and reds recently for the summer and spring. I have been wearing both my sephora coral lip pencil (I'll link my review of it here) and my maybelline vivids in shocking coral (I'll link my review of it here). Also, my mirenesse glossy kiss in 02 flirty kiss is great because its a bright red that is timeless and bright enough for spring and summer, but still appropriate for fall and winter. For my review of that, click here. So as you can see, I'm a little obsessed especially with the bright corals! I recently put in an order to nordstrom and I got MAC Vegas Volt lipstick, but it hasn't come in yet. When it does, I'll be sure to review it! So what are your favorite trends now?

Makuep MAYhem day 18: An Explanation

Hey guys!
This isn't really a makeup related post, but I thought that I'd just let you know why a video didn't go up today. So today was really busy because I had a project that I needed to do (and I need to finish tomorrow) and I had my sister's graduation and other things so I got a chance to film, but wasn't able to upload and edit until now. So a video will be going up on my youtube channel tomorrow instead of today. I'm really sorry guys, but I hope that this makes things a little clearer!

Makeup MAYhem day 15: Scents

Hey guys!
I just wanted to do a fun posts on my scents. This is all about candles, perfumes, body sprays, and other scented home and body products. So here it is!
Candles: I have been loving my candles lately! I used up around half of my tiki beach small candle so I combined it with the left over wax from my island nectar candle and it smells really fruity and floral and great! I've also loved to burn my pink sangria candle in the morning because its really citrusy and just wakes me up!

Body: My body washes of the moment are switching between bath and body works pink sugarplum and winter candy apple. These are both christmas scents, but they smell really yummy and are some of my favorite bath and body works scents of all time. My deodorant is the dove green tea one, which I think smells really good! Also, I've been using my the body shop papaya body butter. 

Perfume: My perfume of the moment is the harajuku g perfume, which smells like coconuts and paradise! My body splash is the victoria's secret pure seduction. 

So those are the scents I've been loving! I want to know what your favorite scents are so leave it in a comment below! Also, don't forget to subscribe!

Makeup MAYhem day 13: if I could only use 5 products...

Hey guys!
This is something a lot of beauty gurus get asked, but I thought it would be fun to do my take on it! If I could only use 5 products for the rest of my life it would be...
1) A full coverage foundation
I could mix this with some moisturizer to get a tinted moisturizer or use this alone to get a more full coverage look. I could also forgo concealer and just double up on this. 

2) Mascara
I would go for a waterproof version because I find that works better at creating/holding a curl. Any covergirl mascara would be great!

3) Brow Powder + Angled Brush
Technically this is a 2 in one type deal, but you can't have a brow powder and nothing to apply it with! I'll just say this counts as one...

4) Tinted lip balm
I like this because it gives sheen, color, and moisture! It works really well and most of them have spf in it so thats like 4 in one!

5) Skylark Snowkissed Cashmere Palette
I would have this palette because it has a highlighter that I love to use on my face and also I like to use the bronze brown shades on my lids! This is just an overall great palette!

So those are the 5 products that I couldn't live without! Let me know what yours are in the comments and don't forget to subscribe for new posts every day during may!

Makeup MAYhem day 11: The Difference Between Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer Beauty

Hey guys!
So I thought that it would be fun to let you know how I change my makeup from fall and winter to spring and summer. So here it is! 
Foundation --> Tinted Moisturizer (or nothing)
I don't like wearing heavy foundations during the spring and summer because it gets hot and it breaks down easily sometimes. I swap it for a lighter BB cream or tinted moisturizer instead. 
Rosy blushes --> Peach blushes
I like to wear peachy toned blushes during the spring and summer because it goes with any type of color and gives me a nice flush that looks really natural rather than a rosy flush that looks better when it's cooler out. 
Smokier eyes --> Brightened eyes
I like to do a smokier, heavier eye in the winter like a bronze or deep brown smokey eye, but in the spring and summer I like to do a lighter, brighter eye (which I have a tutorial on coming in the next few days)
Gel/Liquid liner --> Pencil liner
I use pencil liners during the spring and summer because I find that it looks more natural and stays longer than most gels and liquids, which can smudge and flake and transfer. Also, if a pencil does fade or smudge, it looks more natural than if a gel or liquid does.
Reds and Berries --> Pinks and Corals
I wear corals and pinks during the summer because they are more summery shades and work better when I have a tan than reds and berry shades. 
So those were my makeup changes from winter/fall to summer/spring! I'd love to hear what yours are so leave it in a comment and don't forget to subscribe for new posts every day in may!

Makeup MAYhem day 9: high end makeup wishlist

Hey guys!
I wanted to do a post on my high end makeup wishlist because I did one on my  drugstore wishlist a few weeks ago. If you missed that post, I'll link it here

So here is my wishlist (in no particular order):
1) Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil in "freak"
A really pretty mint green iridescent eye liner (pencil)
2) Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 
I don't have any of the naked palettes and I want both of them, but I want the naked 2 a bit more because they have a better mix of cooler shadows, which I don't have too much of in my collection.
3) The Balm Nude Tude Palette
This looks like lots of fun and although it is a nude/naked palette, it is very different than the urban decay ones and I think it would be great to have!
4) Benefit Hoola
I need a great bronzer and this one would be it because it is matte and perfect for contouring. 
5) Benefit ChaCha tint
This is a mango tint! It is super corally and I think it would be gorgeous on both the lips and the cheeks.
6) Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
Allthatglitters21 (elle) raves about this foundation and so does Blair (juicystar07) and I think that it would be a great foundation!
7) Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel bronze universal
I think that's the name of the cream bronzer from chanel! It looks so amazing and I think it looks really natural and would be great for the sumemr!
8) Tarte LipSurgence
This is the first lip pencil (as far as I know) and I think that it would be great to test out the original to compare to the jumbo pencils from other brands!
9) Nars Orgasm
This is a super popular blush and I love peachy blushes so this one is right up my alley! 
10) Nars Laguna 
This is a satiny bronzer that isn't fully matte. This is another raved about product that I would love to have!
11) Pretty much ANY OCC lip tar
These look amazing! You only need a tiny dot to cover your lips with opaque bright colors and I am so wanting to buy this!
12) MAC 187 brush
This is the only brush on my wishlist because I think that this is the brush that I've wanted for forever! Its a duo fibre stippling brush that I would love to use for foundation!

So that was my high end makeup wishlist! I'd love to hear whats on you wishlist, so let me know in the comments and don't forget to subscribe for daily posts all throughout may!

Makeup MAYhem day 7: top 5 beauty products of ALL TIME!

Hey everyone!
I am doing my top 5 favorite beauty products of all time! This is going to have a bit of high end and a bit of drugstore and these are the products that I will continue to repurchase until they are discontinued or I'm dead (whichever comes sooner). So here they are!

1) Wet N Wild eyeshadows
This is pretty much a general one because all of their shadows are great quality and amazing! If I had to choose one to use for the rest of my life, it would probably be the comfort zone palette because it has a great mix of neutrals and colors. 

2) Covergirl Lashblast mascara
This is the first mascara that I ever had and its amazing! I love how its volumizing and separating and gives me a dramatic effect. Also, the waterproof one is amazing as well!

3) MAC espresso eyeshadow
I use this to fill in my brows daily and it is the perfect shade for me! It's a pricier eyeshadow at $15, but it is one of the best mattes that I can use for a eye brow filler and lasts forever!

4) EOS lip balms
These lip balms are amazing! I love how they stay on my lips for a while and leave them feeling silky smooth. My favorite scent/flavor is sweet mint because it tingles and tastes amazing!

5) Skylark Snowkissed Cashmere Palette
This is my favorite fall/winter palette because they have great browns and bronze eyeshadows that are great daily looks, an amazing matte browbone color that is great for highlighting, and an amazing cranberry color that looks stunning during the winter. I also love satin sparks highlighter and I use it everyday! Also, the brush is great in this palette too :D

So those were my top 5 beauty products of all time! Let me know what yours are in the comments and subscribe for new makeup mayhem posts daily!

Makeup MAYhem day 5: Mint outfit of the day

Hey everyone!
I have another outfit of the day for you! I wore this to school a few days ago and I thought that I'd share this with you because I really loved this outfit and I thought that you'd also want to see me wear this cardigan, which was in my H&M haul a few videos ago. If you missed that video, I'll link it here

Top: My tank is a cream color with white flowers and a floral print near the neckline. It is from Gilly Hicks. My cardigan is a mint green color with black speckles and looks exactly like mint chocolate chip ice cream! It is from H&M. 
Bottoms: I am wearing a pair of distressed light wash jeans form Macy's! It is really pretty and nice and I like how it makes the outfit more springtime appropriate by lightening it up!
So that was my outfit of the day incorporating mint! If you have any other ideas for makeup MAYhem posts, leave it in a comment and I'll try to do it! Also, don't forget to subscribe for new posts daily throughout the month of MAY!

Makeup MAYhem day 3: Pretty Pastel Outfit of the Day!

Hey guys!
I wanted to do a outfit of the day post for you today because I wore this today and I thought that it was the perfect outfit for spring! It incorporates pink, mint, and light blue and is super colorful and fun, but still really wearable without being over the top! So here it is. 

Top: The top is a V-neck that's a little different because it has the "V" in both the front and the back side of the shirt. It is a chevron print with a muted neon pink and a beige color. I think that it's from old navy.
Shorts: These shorts are from Macy's and they were in a haul video before. They are super comfortable and fun and amazing!
Bag: I got this bag a few years ago from Ross and I am unsure of the brand. But I think that you can find small purses in this shade at a lot of places!

So that was my outfit of the day! Let me know what you think of it in the comments and don't forget to subscribe to this blog for my makeup mayhem posts!
