Makeup Update! Kind of...

Ok, so I'm sure everybody reading this blog knows the brand of makeup "wet n' wild". They're one of the cheaper brands, but ok quality. But I never thought there 99 cent lipstick would be so awesome! The only thing about these lipsticks is at the bottom, (where it says the name/number of the lipstick) the color is very different, so watch out.

This is "Light Berry Frost", # 505A I wore it today, and I love it!! It stays on forever! And it's only 99 cents! The only thing with this lipstick is, it's really bright. But, there's a simple solution to that: just tone it down with a lighter lipstick. I use my Maybelline 720 Pearly Pink lipstick on top of it, and it turns into a beautiful color.

This is "Nouveau Pink", #511B. It's also a great color, but bright, so I just tone it down with other lipstick colors.

Mascara and Concealer!

To me, two of the most important things in makeup are mascara and concealer. They help SO much! Mascara helps lengthen and darken your lashes, and concealer helps to cover up those un-wanted blemishes that basically everyone has. I believe in wearing concealer, but not always in putting it all over your face. (I'm kind more into not looking like a barbie! But, I'm not saying that other people look like barbies! But I, personally am not very good at putting concealer all over my face, and plus, I don't like using so much just for one day!) I only put it under my eyes, because I often have dark circles under my eyes. So, just for fun, I thought I'd put up a post about concealing. --- sorry for the crummy pics, I'm not much of a photographer-- Here's how I do my mascara and concealer:

Here's the concealer and foundation I use.

 Here's the stuff I use: one big puffy brush (any brand will do), one flat eyeshadow brush, and powder (I use Almay)

Here's what it looks like when you have nothing on.

Here, I've put the foundation on. You put foundation on the dark circle part, and a little around where your eyeshadow would stop. (Near the "point" of your eye.)

Now the concealer, in the same places were the foundation was. Then, the powder. I just close my eye and put it all over my eye lid and where the dark circles are. I also put a little bit of white powder on the dark circles and the "pointy" part of my eye.

Now mascara, of course!

This is my favorite mascara. It is awesome! It makes your lashes super long, hardly clumps, and it doesn't stick your eyelashes together! (Which I HATE.) And best of all, you can get this for only 7-8 dollars at Bimart!

 Here's after mascara, foundation, concealer, and powder are on.

Got a problem with holding your makeup? It's easy! There's so many things you can buy/make, just look online or on pinterest. I use a little plastic set of drawers. They work perfectly!

Brushes, mascara/eyeshadow, concealer, foundation, and powder drawer.

Ah, do-it-yourself things.... I fall for you way to often..... BUT there are a few diy stuff I've found that work! Here's some I like:

ok, I actually haven't tried this, but I looked through the tutorial.... here's the link :

 A reversible bag! I made this reversible bag! It's so cute! Link:

Bake marbles at 325/350 for 20 min. Put in ice water to make them crack on the inside. Glue end caps to them with starter rings to create pretty pendants! I did this, except I didn't have the caps, but it still works! Link:

PhotobucketI did this, too! Super easy! Link:
