some guys just dont understand...

u meet me we start off talking..we get to know each other for like an hr only about you and you know so little about me. u try to impress me with your stories and pictures of ur life i show u nothing of mine. that concludes the day, i see u unexpectedly a second time that i was hoping i was never ever to see you again because ur just some random person that needed someone to talk to. we talk again. this time more about you and still nothing about me just that you know i have a boyfriend. heres what i think of you in the time that we talked to each other:
-please dont insist on me going out on a date with you because i will not go with you in the matter of time we met.
-dont tell me how bad u want a girl that u want to make happy when clearly im really not interested.
-stop calling me names such as sunshine, gorgeous, and beautiful it’s all flattering but we’re not dating.
-dont tell me how im some angel fallen from the heavens cuz i’ve heard that before and clearly ur just trying to get on my good side.
-im not interested in you are that you are with me, i have a boyfriend and i can only see you as an acquaintance/friend and that all im ever going to see you as
-stop calling me and begging me to talk on the phone with you because that clearly just makes things worse for me
-please dont send me a thousand messages asking me if im busy because in the time that i dont respond to ur text message it prety much means im actually doing something not ignoring you.
-dont tell me u wish u could see me cuz thats never going to happen considering that i make time for my family and my bf along with school.
-when i say that im not comfortable with something i really mean it and im not just saying that.
-i do not wish to prolong our friendship at all because its really not worth it i hardly know you 
-when i say im busy im busy..
-please listen when i say i do not wish to talk on the phone because i really dont
-one more thing, when i say that i have a boyfriend i have a boyfriend. im not just saying that cuz i can when i was single but no i am taken. dont tell me how u wish i was yours and make me pity my relationship because im not falling for it plus you’re a total stranger to me and you dont even go to my school let alone go to school. you’re 25 and live with ur mom and already have a child with ur ex. now what makes you think im going to just go for you? i honestly think ur not as attractive and to be honest if i were to wear heels around you id be a little bit taller..the fact that you told me u already have a kid just kinda made me think wow…okay….no.
i know this is one hell of a shallow, mean post about this guy but its getting annoying, and he cant seem to respect that i have a boyfriend. hes asks me about 5 times to go on a date and i absolutely refuse because i feel it isnt right at all and im just not down with that. so im pretty much ready to block his number real soon..

With halloween just around the corner, I thought I would make up something with whatever I had. Since I'm not planning on spending my halloween going out this year I wanted to create something that halloween-ish yet fabulous at the same time haha so this is what I came up with...
So how does it look? do I pass as a zombie? or at least somewhat dead looking? hahaha Here's how I came to this look, I was using my 88 matte eyeshadow palette from BH Cosmetics. I first primed my eyes with Two Face primer and then took the brightest neon pink and applied it over my lids then taking a deeper purple to my crease and the outer edges, I then took the deep purple and swiped it over my bottom lid as well. pretty much I was doing a pink purple smokey eye look. So then I took the deep black grayish color just above the black and I started contouring my face, shading just below my eyes to make me look super tired and the temples of my forehead. Then I took a flat eye shadow brush and pretty much covered my lips lightly with a black shadow and voila! this is how it came out. I know I didnt do a tutorial but I have been busy studying and this was pretty much my study break! So tell me what you think! Id like to hear your thoughts about this look for halloween. =]

First Impressions/Review on Revlon Lipsticks

I went down to CVS earlier today to purchase some home goods i.e toilet paper, sponges, soap, etc. And I stopped by the make up section (like I always do) and I saw Revlon was having some sales on their lip products so knowing that I've seen a few Youtube gurus talk about the products I decided to pick up some myself and try them out see if they're worth what the gurus say they are. I picked up one lipstick in 045 Raspberry and since the color shown on the tube was a deeper red, I was expecting a red bright red but toned down just a little but when I got home and opened the tube it was more of a deep burgundy red and it was way different than what I thought it was in the store and of course i couldn't open the package because it was sealed. The next lip product I bought was the Colorstay Ultimate liquid lipstick, now in the store I had thought well this is a pretty color ( I picked up the one in 010 Premium Pink) and assuming that it's a wear alone lipstick but it wasnt. When I opened up the products at home I was just shocked at how I perceived these products differently in the store. When I tried on the Raspberry lipstick I actually like how the color came out on my lips I know its a darker color than what I normally wear but since this is the fall season dark colors are now the trend. It has a silk gloss finish to it and it really feels like Im not wearing anything on my lips at all, So I decided why not and be daring with the darker lip color. The colorstay liquid lipstick is what disappointed me the most; assuming that this lipstick was wear alone it really wasn't, my lips felt super dry after application and it felt like I needed that extra gloss to keep my lips from over drying. The consistency was fine but afterwards my lips started to get tacky and if I had my lips closed long enough I swear it felt like my lips would be glued together. Overall I do regret purchasing this lip product and considering that I get my money back for it because this is something i try to avoid in lip products. Here are some pics and swatches I know they arn't as clear but I wanted to get a basic idea for you to view.
Premium Pink


Check out my video as well to hear more about my thoughts!

Long time no blog!! =]

So I have been away pretty much all the time now due to school and now work with my boyfriend spending nights with me here and there which delays me to update anything. But since I have free time right now I thought I could go ahead and update this now before I lag it even more! =]
To catch up with whatever has been going on with me, I have been pretty busy with school and pretty much not caring with style and what not only because I have such little time to vlog about any of my outfits or makeup. I recently got hired for the coussoulis arena to promote their upcoming show called the Video Games Live where there is going to be a live symphony playing soundtracks to videos with supporting light show and giant screens to display the video game that they're playing. So I've been a busy little bee these past few weeks.
I recently got a new hair cut!! =] i finally had the chance to go chop off some of my dead hair but managed to still keep my length in which I plan on cutting again in a few weeks to get out all my split ends. Then not only that I also got my bangs cut so now they are front straight bangs... although I do like the idea of the change I still manage to sweep my bangs to the side because I am so used to the side bangs and its something my boyfriend hates when I do that haha but yea here is a picture of what my hair looks like now...I know its kind of hard to see because of the black shirt that Im wearing but you get the idea though with the bangs and everything =]

I also received my package from Forever 21 purchasing a long sleeved shirt that feels so comfortable to wear but really light weight and an open cardigan which is amazing to wear as well and a brown embellished ( i guess you can say) belt. I've dressed up and dressed down the clothes I bought and will soon put up an outfit of the day to let you see how I style each time I go to class =] Here is the video of my little haul I recently uploaded. =]
Other than that I have been going out alot with my boyfriend and just recently went to dance held on campus this past friday night and got totally wasted. Lets just say that will be the last time Im ever going to let myself drink that much for I had a really bad hang over all day yesterday haha but it was still fun. I know I didnt get a picture of the outift I wore to the dance but I wore some gray yoga pants with a tight fitting black turtle neck with a elongated beaded necklace I bought from Forever 21 a while and high heels. For make up I was wearing my bright blue eye shadow from mac and basically made it into a smokey eye with nude lips. =]  Got some candy and yea I had a great time.. =]
Well I hope everyone had a safe weekend I know that everyone went out over the weekend for Halloween parties and what not and I just wish that all of you are safe and are being careful =] Have a safe Halloween guys!

So trying out my new eye palette that I got from CVS today and I loved how the color payoff came out. The look is absolutely beautiful and it's a great wear for this upcoming season...FALL!  It's a very natural look well...very neutral I should say and lately I have been into the whole bronzie brown look and it's very suitable to wear out on an everyday basis for school, work, hanging out with the girls..or guys ;) haha and it's just a fun everyday wear. I know for sure this will be the look that I will be using for the rest of the year when I dont feel like wearing too much color to class. The products that I used are as followed:

Wet n Wild's Vanity palette
Smashbox's Photofinish Lid Primer
Smashbox's Blackout shadow
Maybelline's The Falsies Volume express
Wet n Wild's Heather Silk blush

New look..

Here I created a yellow green look..I know this look is tried in by many other makeup artists but I wanted to try it out myself. Since my skin complexion is pretty much dark the colors are so vibrant as to those who are fair skinned. So I decided to take on this look using my BHCosmetics 88 Matte shadow palette with my Sonya Kashuk brushes. I primed my eyes first with Smashbox's photo finish lid primer and then on top of that I smudged NYX's jumbo pencil in Milk all over my lid. The with a flat shader brush I picked up the brightest yellow on the pallete follwed by a yellow-green shade a few colors below it and the inner half of my eye is yellow while the outer half of my eye is yellow-green. I had to really pack that on my lid to get the color to stand out. Then what I did next was take a small crease brush and dab it on a darker green shade to outline my crease and outer corners of my eyes just a bit. For a highlight color I used the color that was most similar to my skin tone and lined my eyes with smashbox's blackout shadow and a liner brush on my top lid.
For the bottom part of my lids I took the same colors I used on my top lid and lined my lower lash line with it starting from the outer corner with the darker green and making my way to the inner corner with the yellow. I also took a black pencil and lined my water line lightly to make the black seem barely there.
For my lips I took L'Oreal's lipstick in Forver Fuschia to complete my look.
I had a great time creating this look, I couldnt be anymore happy of how the result came out. =]

Bright Blue Smokey look!

So I got A LOT of feedback from my picture that I have as my default and I thought I would share how I created this look by posting up a video. This is the picture that everyone seems to be loving:
So What I did was I pretty much just came upon this look randomly, I had just recently bought a new shadow from MAC called Zingy and I absolutely fell in love with this color. The blue is so vibrant and I randomly came up with different ideas in how to put this color to use. The first idea of course was this bright smokey eye look with a vibrant red lip color. I just recently fell into the whole red lipstick phase because I had doubts before that I didnt suit it enough to pull off a super red lip color, but of course one day I decided to just try it out and I absolutely just fell in love with it. Now I have a whole lip stick collection of bright reds and fuschia lip colors along with nudes as well.
This was a fun look to wear out although I didn't really go anywhere that day I wore it but I loved how the result came out and everyone as soon as I posted it up just fell in love with the look and it inspired me to go ahead and shoot a video showing how I created it. 
Products I used were:

Estee Lauder Double Wear in Soft Tan
Estee Lauder Double Matte pressed powder in Medium/deep
Wet n Wild Bronzer in Princess
Wet n Wild Blush in Heather Silk

Smashbox primer
NYX Jumbo pencil in White
Smashbox shadow in blackout
Smashbox shadow in vanilla
NYX Slide on pencil in Jet black
Maybelline the Falsies

L'Oreal Lip liner in Always Red
L'oreal Lipstick in 315 True Red

Brushes I used were mainly from Sonya Kashuk and BHCosmetics.
And here is the video for you to enjoy!

The weather outside...

the weather outside is pretty cool now considering it's evening now but man has it been so hot! Southern CA gets it bad when it come to summer...goodness...nothing but tanks and shorts and what not right? haha well since it's warm out there in here in my apartment its like a freezer and it got so cold in here that I had to toss on my hoody haha good ol air never fail me =]

Ojon Oil hair treatment.

So I tried out the Ojon Oil sample I received when I had made a purchase at Sephora and the ending result was very promising. What I did was just rubbed my palms together with the product on to activate the oil and soaked it all over my hair and waited for about twenty minutes. The only thing that I wasn't too happy about was how it smelled when I put on. The odor was just intense; it smelled of something organic and rotten at the same time and it was just unbearable to sit here for twenty minutes letting it do its magic on my hair.
So after about fifteen minutes I decided to wash out my hair; I had originally planned on just having it on all night because of how dry and damaged my hair was but I couldn't take the smell.
This product can be used whenever need, it does say to use it weekly but for some people I may assume that you wouldnt need to use weekly maybe just once in a while but since my hair is soo horrible I am going to use it on a weekly basis for twenty minutes. Down below I posted a youtube video explaining how I felt about the product and go ahead and feel free to write to me what you thought about the product if you have tried out yourself! Thanks for reading!! =]

Good ol' Monday..

So it's monday annd I am here in my room doing absolutely nothing. Been waiting for phone calls all day.. trying to figure out how to get to work from here all the way from san bernardino to ontario. Let alone to just visit my boyfriend since I am now carless. Thinking about hanging out with some friends tomorrow and weds but I dont know if I feel like going out. Supposed to spend the night have some wine and then beach trip the next day. It does sound exciting when I have that one friend who is leaving for Berkeley thursday morning. It saddens me that I haven't got the chance to see her only for a few minutes friday night. But to know I wont see her much at all this year until winter break or possibly thanksgiving break it breaks my heart.
We were all such close friends and after junior college we just went our seperate ways keeping in touch through skype, email, texts which ever...and whenever I am in need of trouble I have no one to talk to..I mean I do but it's all through email and phone. For once i would like someone to just run to me when I need it. Like this weekend, I needed to see someone all day and everyone was either working or busy and it really bummed me out how I couldn't just talk to anyone..let alone i didnt have a car and no one was willing to come see. Other than one of my cousins she totally lagged it I understand she was having fun with her friends for her early 30th but today she said she would take me out and i just gave up. I had a feeling that she would forget and I wasn't going to keep bothering her because I know how busy she is sometimes. *sighs* like i really feel like i fell in a deep hole...I dont have means of transportation anymore the only choices I have is the metro and busses when really I dont enough money to begin with to pay them.
Things have been running through my mind alot lately and I know that people have told me before to just keep my head up and that things would get better and to be honest everytime I did keep my head and hoped for the best something else went wrong and the ending results are nothing but screams and foul language and no terms to agree to.
And in all..I miss my boyfriend..even though I just seen him last friday before all the wreck happened I just really miss his hugs, his smile, his voice...everything...and Im so eager to just hop on the bus right now and get the metro but it just so much effort to keep track of the times and making sure I make it on time.
So now this concludes my post. I'm starting to feel very woozy and drowsy from this medicine I took a couple of minutes ago just because I thought I was getting sick. I mean i was sneezing all morning and my nose had a major sinus problem.
I miss everything, everyone.
The most thing that I miss is being able to paint what I'm feeling right now..but I dont earn enough to buy any supplies. I miss it. A lot.


Hi! My name is Christina and I am a 22 year old girl living life on campus. I am a huge art fan in which i have my own paintings, drawings, photography, and such. I also am starting to get into makeup as well in which I practice most colors and such on myself. I do indeed do makeup on others as well but its has only gone as far as to just family members. I am interested in being freelance of makeup and photography. I do own a professional camera and am still in the works of figuring out the kinks and what not. Here are a few of my works...paintings, drawings, makeup, etc. =]

more to come with pics of what I do in my spare time..
