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. :)


So....yeah, nothing really special there, but it gets the job done, hope this helps and hope you liked it. :)

Love & Peace,

4. Maybelline Mineral Power Blush in Gentle Pink
5. Benefit High Beam

Didn't wear foundation or anything because it was soooo hot and would have just melted off. Haha.

1. White Generic Tanktop
2. White Sofees (shorts)
3. White polka dotted dress from Wet Seal
4. Red and White Candy Stripe Wedges from Payless (SUPER CUTE! they remind me of pin up shoes and have a cute bow on top, I got them last summer I think, so comfy tooo!)
5. Clear teardrop necklace from Body Central

Sooo yeah, It was really hot outside. Uhmm.
And here's just some random pictures.....

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'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.
