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.

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!
