Youtube, health, and other things. :)

So... I do realize the last non-update post was a while ago, and i'm sorry for that.  I've been focusing on my health (I told you guys about me going healthy!) and my youtube....yup, you heard right...i started a youtube beauty channel, it's http://www.youtube.com/user/principessa3x so i'm not sure as of right now if i'm going to continue with my blog or if i'm just going to focus on my youtube channel.
But....in other news. I have been eating a lot healthier, i'm only drinking water and health shakes and i'm been working out 5 times a week. So far...surprisingly I've lost 8 pounds so that's extremely exciting. I've been slacking off a tiny bit lately, but i'm going to get back on track. Anyways, hopefully i'll do a post later or tomorrow, sorry for the lack thereof recently.

Love & Peace,

Hair History! :) (Warning, Image heavy!)

So, I decided to do a post on the history of my hair, from when I was born to now!
I really wanted to do a post that prevented me from taking photos, and this one is it...because I already have the photos. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy. :)
Yup, that's me as a baby....pale, blue eyes, and sandy blonde hair....
the cuteness didn't last long though, haha.
I wanna say this was my first day of like 1st or 2nd grade, I really didn't have hair at all, this was my hair in natural form...It was a dark sandy blonde color, really curly, and really short, and it didn't really change until about 3rd grade (i know, I looked like a boy for like 3 years of elementary).
This was me around 3rd grade (I know really bad picture quality sorry). I finally grew some hair, and it was the same color, and still curly, but I could pull it into a ponytail abit haha. I know, my teeth were jacked up back then.
This was right around 4th and 5th, as you can see, I did have EXTREMELY tight curly hair earlier in life. It was really long then too. I would say this is best my hair has ever looked curly, and sadly I do regret perming my hair at that point, because now looking my I think my  curls are beautiful...but I doubt my hair will ever get that curly again. :(
Then I permed my hair at the end of 5th grade and died it with copper highlights....
Yeah, that was the myspace phase of my life, so ignore the horribly poser look. O_O. Anyways, this was my hair color around 6th grade...basically a copper, caramel brown. And my hair always looked really fried. The top photo is when my hair looked it's healthiest, longest, and straightest. So yeah....
Then.... I went through a hair craze.....
I changed my hair about 4-5 times all in 7th grade... WARNING, SCARY HAIR IMAGES AHEAD...hahaha.
Uhm, around the start of 7th grade. I kept the color of my hair and kept my bangs, but got long layers in my hair.
Cut my bangs into straight forward bangs....BIG REGRET..i wish someone had told me that I looked like an idiot before I did it....still the same color.
Excuse the weird pose, anyways, my bangs finally grew out and my hair color had mostly faded to a sandy brown color.
Then I let my bangs grow out and cut them into side swept ones again, and died my hair back to copper.
Then the bad hair came.....
...I became obsessed with scene hair...cut a million layers in my hair, died the tips blonde, kept major side swept bangs, and chopped all my hair off. Dear jesus, what was i thinking?!?!?!
And, then thank god...I got my sanity back and I let all my hair grow out and let my bangs grow out to a normal length. And died my hair back to caramel/copper brown....
Then, that was basically my hair all through 8th and for a while after...
This is the most recent picture of me...you can't see the color but I dyed my hair dark brown (I recently re-dyed it black-brown).  And it's right past my shoulders (I chopped bout and inch off from 8th grade). And my bangs have grown out and basically I just push them back.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this, fairly interesting and equally scary post. haha. Well thanks for reading!

Peace & Love,

Everyday Makeup Routine. WARNING, IMAGE HEAVY! :)

As promised, here's my everyday makeup routine... :)
This is without doing like major eyeshadow or anything, if I do wear eyeshadow, I will put on eyeliner and such, but if i'm in a hurry then this is what I do...Enjoy! :)
1. UNO- Apply chapstick before starting! :)
2. DOS- I take the lightest white matte cream shadow from my Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows palette in Not Just Nudes and apply it under my eyes as a concealer/brightener! :)
3. TRES- I take my Wet N' Wild Ultimate Mineral Foundation in Fair with my Elf Studio Powder Brush and apply it under my eyes to set the cream. :)
4. CUATRO- I take my NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny with my Elf Studio Powder Brush (I use this brush for EVERYTHING!) and apply it on my cheekbones to contour. :)
5. CINCO- I apply my Maybelline Mineral Power Blush in Gentle Pink to the apples of my cheeks and bring it upwards toward my hair line with my Elf Studio Powder Brush  (told ya!).
6. SEIS- I take the light shimmery champagne cream shadow in my Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow palette in Not Just Nudes. And apply it all over my lids with my finger.
7. SIETE- Then I apply Model Co. Shadow in Antiqua all over my lids and up to my brow bone to set the cream shadow.
8. OCHO- Then I curl my lashes with my NYC Eyelash Curler, trust me...curling your lashes makes all the difference! :)

9. NUEVE- Then I apply Wet N' Wild Mega Protein Mascara in Black to my freshly curled lashes. :)

10. DIEZ- Then I apply whatever lip product that I'm wearing that day, today it was Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Born With It. :)

My Birthday Celebration! :)

So...if you read my recent update post, you'll know that i'm trying to do more vlogs...or blogs...that are like vlogs...? I don't know. Anyways, I figured this would be nice start to kick it off, so here's what I did on Sunday the 28th...the day before my birthday! :)

I had a really small birthday this year, It was just me, my two best friends, and my mother. We went to a small local dumpling store and got dumplings, pork hot buns, noodles, and soup....all of which were AMAZING! Anyways, yeah, and there we just did presents and cake. :)
(btw, there aren't alot because most of them turned out bad.)
This was the present from my friend candace. Haha, the wrapping was hard to get off, but it was sooooooo cute and springy! Anyways... I just wore a blue frilly top over a black tank with silver hoops and neutral makeup.
After getting it open....
I got really happy because she ended up getting me a HUGE cupcake mug. Shockhorror. If you didn't know...there are two things that I'm obssessed with in the world....Hello Kitty...and Cupcakes. Like, literally OBSESSED. Anyways, so it was like love at first site with it...and inside were some cherry sours in a hello kitty tin....this is why she's my best friend. haha. I loved it...she also gave me OPI Russian Navy nail polish, and some jewelry. :)
Best picture I could find of it... :/

Then...I opened my best friend Bexx's presents, and it was soo cute. She made me a poster that had all our past memories on it, from like A-Z (i've been best friends with her for 9 years of my life). Then the card was like this...
with 15 dollars in cash. She is pretty darn creative. Then she gave me an NYC Eyelash Curler...which I LOVE! And NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny, because everyone raves about it, so she figured I would love it...which I do! :) No pictures of that but still.

Last picture...
Haha, all of us with the fish...yesh...they had fish there...Candace said they jumped at her...hahahaha.
So from left to right there's Bexx, Me, and Candace. I know...you're jealous...because we're so cool. Hehe.
I love my friends more than anyone possibly could know, I've been best friends with Bexx for 9 years and best friends with Candace for 2 years. We'll be best friends forever...I know it! :)
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the post about my birthday and disclaimer:: I definitely wasn't trying to brag...promise.
Birthday haul soon! Possibly tomorrow, Sunday at the latest.

The weather recently has been amazing too!! It's been sunny non-stop at 87 degrees. Time to tan...haha. :)

Birthday Celebration Post, Over & Out.

Mini Update? :)

So, I figured I'd do a bit of a mini update now!
So...first off, I'm going shopping tomorrow ...YAY! I finally get to go spend my birthday cash and such. There's a few makeup and hair items I want, but other than that I'm not too sure what else I'm going to get.
I'm sooo happy and excited! Finally, a nice break from school.
I wanted to try a few new things over break too...
1. I'm going to attempt to wear my hair wavy/curly, it's not super curly since I got my hair japanese straightened, but it still has a wave to it, so i'm going to get a few products and try that out, because I really want to learn to limit the amount of heat I use on my hair. So i'm might let you guys know how that goes.
2. I'm going to try a few new things with my blog too... I want to start doing like vlogs, like things I did during the day (if I did something fun) and events and parties and just things like that. Because I feel like my blog is all makeup, and I don't really let you guys see my personality, so yeah. I'm also going to attempt to do outfit of the days, so we'll see how that works out.

So yeah, i guess we'll see how the changes work out, and i love you guys, and see you later! :)

Update, Over & Out.

Lipstick Collection, Swatches and Reviews. :)

It's such a beautiful day outside that i'm like literally sitting on my driveway blogging this right now.
I've wanted to do this post for a while now because I think they're really helpful, but yeah.
Here's my lipstick collection and swatches! :)
This is going by color and tint not brand by the way.
Here's my bare lips with just chapstick on.

Ok, first lipstick is Revlon's Nude Attitude.
It's a nude color with peach undertones.
This is a matte lipstick which i'm not a big fan of, it really like accentuates the wrinkles in my lips, but it has nice coverage...and it's not too drying.

Second lipstick is Mac's Creme D' Nude.
It's a nude color with more pink undertones.
This formula is AMAZING. It's of course the infamous creamsheen formula so it glides on wonderfully. It is a bit too pale for me but it's still a nice lipstick. Good coverage, but it wears off easily and it's one major flaw is that it melts and breaks easily, so I have to be really careful with it.

This next one is Mac's Marquise D'.
It's neutral nude pink color with subtle shimmer.
...LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This lipstick came out with the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead Collection a while ago. It's a lustre and it's B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. I actually broke mine a few months ago, but I'm going to depot it and buy a backup from ACW too so that I never run out of it...It's just amazing and smooth. A bit sheer but creamy and a nice wearable everyday color.

Up next is Rimmel London's Airy Fairy.
It's a nice baby pink color with mauve or purple undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This was my first lipstick ever and all that's left is a little nub. I love the formula though, it's creamy, moisturizing, and extremely pigmented. The color is beautiful and a great everyday lipstick, I always have this on hand, because if I can't choose a lipstick I can slick this on and have a nice natural look. It has great coverage too.

Then there's Maybelline's Born With It.
It's a baby pink color with subtle shimmer.
This is not a favorite of mine. It's from the ColorSensational line and everyone raved about it, but I just don't like it. It accentuates wrinkles, wears of easily and the cake scent drives me crazy because it's soooo sweet smelling. It's pigmented though and gives nice shine and a beautiful color, I just really don't like it.
Ignore the pluto pimple beside my lip I meant to retouch that out. -_-

This next one is Mac's Warm Me Up.
It's a neutral darker pink color with peach undertones.
It's a amplified creme formula. I thought I wouldn't be able to wear this because of the formula, but I wear this almost everyday! It's become one of my favorite lipsticks! I love it! It's creamy, long-wearing, doesn't transfer when eating or anything and has amazing coverage. It came out with the warm and cozy collection that came out a little while ago, but if you can still get your hands on it...then I definitely recommend you do.

Up next is NYC'S Mousse.
It's a neutral light bronze color with pink undertones with subtle shimmer.
I don't wear this often but it's a beautiful wearable color. It's very creamy but has sheer coverage. It's not too drying and it's very cheap! It's only major downside is the packaging. If NYC ever fixes their packaging I'll be in love!
Sorry that picture came out blurry ^^.

Okay, now we have Rimmel London's Birthday Suit.
It's a neutral dark bronze color with peach undertones and noticeable shimmer.
This is like a darker more bronze version of NYC'S Mousse. It's somewhat sheer but still has the wonderful formula of Airy Fairy. I like to wear this over my nude lipsticks to give a little color so that I don't look dead. It's a pretty color and definitely a love of mine.

Then we have Revlon's Blushed.
It's a dark pink burgundy color with noticeable shimmer.
It's a great fall color but I don't wear it that often because It's so dark. But it is a beautiful color and I love to wear during fall and winter. It's creamy and has great coverage and it's very pigmented. But it can be a bit drying.
Once again sorry for the blurry picture ^^.

Next is Revlon's Blasé Apricot.
It's a bright coral color with peach undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This is my favorite bright color for spring! It's pigmented, has great coverage, and it's not drying at all! So, if you're looking for nice coral color to wear I definitely recommend this one!
The intensity of the color doesn't show well in the photo.

Then there's Almay's Red.
Its a cherry red color with subtle shimmer.
It's a bit sheer and it has gold sparkle shimmers in it. It's really pretty and not very drying. It wears off alot though and feathers alot. Pretty color though, but I don't wear reds too much.

Last but not least is Rimmel London's Alarm.
It's a bright hollywood red.
It's a creme color with absolutely no shimmer and a slight matte finish. It's really bright, pigmented, and pretty. And it has the same formula as the Airy Fairy lipstick, so it smells good, is moisturizing, has great staying power, and is smooth and creamy. Over all a perfect red lipstick and so cheap too! :)
Sorry for the super messy swatch...at that point I was just slapping em' on. :/

Anyways, here's all the swatches, on my hand. :)

1st Row:: Revlon Matte Nude Attitude, MAC Creme D' Nude, MAC Marquise D', MAC Warm Me Up
