Quick Burgundy Makeup Look

Tuesday, January 28, 2014
I've been trying out different eyeshadows lately and I stumbled upon this lovely one.It's a velvety-burgundy shade with deep green reflection.I know the picture doesn't show much,but I couldn't get a better one. x_x

I damped my brush and dipped it into the shadow.[Because the brush alone doesn't grab the green much.]I applied it all over my eyelid and blended it out in a v-shape.

I've added some eyeliner and mascara to make my eyes pop.I've also applied the color with some dark brown on my lower lashline.

I know my line isn't the same but,oh well.I've also applied some concealer to brighten up the under-eye area.[I do have some foundation and concealer on.]

The finished thing-I've added some nude lipstick and a hint of blush.
List of products:
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation 210
Catrice Camouflage Cream 030 Rozy Beige
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 20
Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette
Catrice Liquid  Eyeliner 010 Dating Joe Black
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara
Catrice Ulitmate Color Lipstick 010 Be Natural![Mentioned here]
Catrice Blush Tint 010 Rose Flush[Mentioned here]

I'm sorry for the picture quality!My camera went asdfghjkl on me and I had to use the front camera on my phone.And I really wanted to get a post up,so I hope you don't mind.
Have a lovely week y'all!
See you soon,

Stress Free

Sunday, January 19, 2014
Hey dolls!
The last 3 months of 2013 have been very stressful and just in overall exhausting.I haven't had time for my blog,for exercise,healthy food or anything but studying basically.
As a result of all that I had problems with sleeping,metabolism,I got a lot of headaches and my hands were shaky at all times.My skin also looked bad.It was just a bad time in overall.
For this year I decided to make it less stressful.

1]The first thing I did-I cut out my extra activities.I still go to Red Cross meetings but all of the other things had to go away.[Besides,I can still take them up again when I'm ready.]

2] I started organizing my time better.I come home,rest an hour-two,then I do my homework and study for the next day.I usually studied two days ahead.On weekends,I organized the time for myself and time for studying.[I.e.;On Saturday I would study up until lunch and then after lunch I would relax and do whatever I wanted.]

3]I try to exercise every day-not an hour per day,tho.About 30 minutes a day of workout.Once or twice a week I do a full one-hour workout.It helps to relieve my daily stress.

4]I improved my sleeping pattern.-This was tough.My sleeping pattern was horrible.I would go to sleep at midnight and wake up at 5 am,or study at night then go to school at 8 am.I literally forced myself do go to sleep at a normal time.

5]I started eating healthier.I cut down on the junk food,sodas,sugar etc.I try to eat as healthy as possible and I've been quite good at it.Yay!

6]More water!I still need to improve in this.I just don't get thirsty.Humph.

7]Focus on the good people.I used to stress so much about the fake,wanna-be's,the idiots who would talk to me etc.I don't do that anymore.I hang out with the people I like,I have fun with them and I just push the bad people at the back of my head.

I do realize stress will always be present,but for now I'm focusing on minimizing it as much as I can.

How do you deal with stress?Let me know in the comments below!

New In:Makeup

Saturday, January 18, 2014
Hey dolls!
I've spent a LOT of money in December[I don't even want to do the math] and I'm currently saving up some money for a new camera and I decided to cut down my spending a bit.
I also wanted to buy some makeup that has both quality and is budget-friendly.
So,here's what I got:
1.Catrice Blush Tint-010 Rose Flush.-This thing is so lovely!It gives you a really nice rosy blush and it makes your lips look naturally pink and plump.

2.Essence Dark Romance Velvet Mousse Blush in 02 Dark Romance.-This is very,very pigmented and I love using it on daily basis without any shadow or much makeup.It really gives me that vibrant,fresh face.

3.Maybelline Affinitone 24h Longwear in 030 SAND-This is a light coverage foundation and I really like it because it looks just like your skin,minus the dullness.I find that,after I set it with powder,it stays in place for 5-6 hours quite well.

4.Catrice Rocking Royals Liplocking Base.-I haven't actually tried this yet,but I picked it up because I was interested in the product and I use lipsticks everyday.It isn't highly moisturizing,so I suggest using a chap stick anyway. 

 5.Catrice ULTIMATE Shine in 060 Teddy Brown and ULTIMATE Color in 010 Be Natural!

 -Both of these are very moisturizing and creamy.Teddy Brown is an amazing color which I use everyday and Be Natural! is a bit too light and peachy for my skintone.Either way,these are amazing.

I hope you liked this little haul post.If you'd like me to do a more detailed review on any of these,tell me in the comments section.
See you soon,
