Blogger Challenge Day 3,4, and 5

So I realize I am behind by a few days on my challenge, but I promise I have a good reason!….

My boyfriend adopted a cat/kitten he’s about a year so he is still young enough to be a kitten but not really haha. He adopted him on Sunday of last week but we just got to take him home this last Wednesday which was the 5th and also supposed to be day 3. Buuuuuuut as you could have guessed I became a tad preoccupied with the new baby in my life! Don’t worry, many pictures will be posted he is adorable!!

So I decided to combine the last three days into one!

Day 3: Quote of the day:

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible!”

This is my favorite quote because it was said by my all time favorite person Audrey Hepburn! And it’s just so true and clever ! This quote is actually hanging on a canvas in my bathroom so I get to see it every single day!

Day 4: Top 5

Lipsticks/Glosses-

1. Love and Beauty by Forever 21 nude lip gloss, they no longer sell this color and I have no idea what it’s called but it is by far the most beautiful nude gloss I have ever owned. I pair it with every lipstick ever and it always looks perfect!

2. Kate by Rimmel #08 , this is the perfect neutral pinkish brown color and the quality is awesome!Perfect color! Rimmel London Kate Moss Collection Lipstick 08--Beautiful Color! | See more about shades of pink, lip colors and lipstick colors.

Day 5:Most Loved Possessions

A few of my most loved possessions would be my Turtle Pillow Pet, my promise ring, and my jewelery box .

My pillow pet I have had since I was 16, I got it as a birthday present from my cousins who used to live in Idaho and have just recently moved to Portland, Oregon. It is one of the mini pillow pets and I take him every where… just ask my boyfriend, he would love nothing more than to throw it away but I love it!

Last year for Christmas my boyfriend got me  beautiful promise ring after we went through a rough patch and had to spend some time apart to work on ourselves, it means the world to me because every time I put it on I remember how strong we both became and how we were able to come back together to share the love we have.

When I was young, like super young and I had just started to learn about jewelery and I got my first pair of earrings my grandmother gave me a gorgeous wooden jewelery box with a heart shaped piece of glass on the top, I have always used this box and never bought another one because this one means so  much to me My grandmother has a box that is larger than mine but they came together and she gave me the smaller box.

So there’s three more days from the 12 day blogger challenge! Tomorrow, Day 6: What am I currently Reading?

Rose Gold Eye Makeup

20140721_224816    I got some inspiration for this look from Pinterest however the makeup turned out more pink on the Pinterest tutorial even though it was the same makeup, buuuut I wasn’t a huge fan of how pink it was anyways so I am very pleased with how this look turned out.

This look is very easy to accomplish and is perfect for day and is very easy to spice up for the evening. These two pictures are two different days and two slightly different looks.

What I used to accomplish this look:

Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer

an angled liner brush

Maybelline the Rocket Volume mascara

( I used my fingers to apply all of the eyeshadow except for the liner, I find it leads to less fall out and a more vibrant color)

 

 

20140722_112830How to accomplish this look:

(In an everyday situation I put on my liquid foundation first then eyeshadow hen concealer and the rest, but for this look I started with the eyeshadow because of how much fall out I had it was easier to clean it up with the foundation. )

Step 1: apply a generous amount of eyeshadow primer to your entire eyelid, the inner corner of  your eye and the lower lash line.

Step 2: apply Dust on your lid up to the crease area and out about half way.

Step 3: apply Nooner to the outer V area but not the crease, bring Nooner out a ways, this is dependent on how big you are wanting to make your wing, small wing, bring the shadow out a little bit, big wing drag it farther out.

Step 4: on top of Nooner apply a small amount of Buzz just to add some shimmer and a bit more pink.

Step 5: blend Burnout into the crease

Step 6: use Strange as a highlighter in the brow arch and inner corner

Step 7: use either Darkside or Blackheart as your liner on the top and bottom, I used Blackheart on the top and Darkside on the bottom because I don’t care for a dark bottom lash line.

Like I said this look is easy to go from day to night, keep the liner light and thin for a day look and make it darker and heavier for  night look.

 

 

My Drugstore Lip Favs

I have a relatively large collection of lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms. Most of my collection is bought from Target or Rite Aid because I have a very strict cosmetics budget and you can find quality for a good price in a drugstore.

So I’m going to start with lip balms: my ultimate fav lip balm is the Maybelline Baby Lips, I have two colors/flavors. the original clear balm in the blue tube was my first love and I used it to the end and then replaced it with the Cherry Me flavor which is a red color in the orange tube, which you can purchase here . The cherry Me is my favorite because it gives a very natural red color that isn’t sticky and wont get all over my teeth and face. That is my biggest issue with lipstick, it gets on everything if you aren’t careful. My other fav lip balms are the EOS eggs! I have the lemon drop, sweet mint, and summer fruit flavors and I love them all. I have had the lemon drop flavor for a year now and it’s still not gone even though I use it religiously which is amazing to me! I love a lip balm that will last me a while.

Cherry Me

Cherry Me

I have so many different lipsticks it was hard for me to pick 3 of my favorites! But I finally narrowed it down. First off I have Kate by Rimmel London, I have two shades; 01,a deep red color and 08 a dark nude color. I love these because they go on thick and give a fabulous color that is great for a special occasion. The 01 red was my very first red lipstick so I have a special place in my heart for this one ;). Next I have Maybelline Colorsensational in Coral Crush, I love this color so much I decided to go get a Clinique Chubby Stick in the same color so I could have a longer lasting color. For the price I still recommend this brand though. It goes on smooth and light making it easy to get the color you want by layering. And lastly my ultimate favorite drug store lipsticks, Revlon Colorburst.

Strawberry Shortcake

Raspberry Pie

I only have two colors from this band but if I could afford more lipstick I would continue to buy this brand. It feels like a chap stick on your lips but the color is so rich and beautiful. I have Strawberry Shortcake, a pale pink that makes any face look innocent and fresh, and Raspberry Pie which is a deep magenta that can make anyone look bad a$$.

I hope this review was helpful in your next lip stick shopping spree!!
