My makeup story

Hello beautiful people! :)

        I apologize for not posting in a week. School was really busy since it was our first week back last week and 3rd term ended on Friday. It was just too stressful because I had a lot due! I'm glad that's over and I can actually start posting again. 
        I want to talk about makeup today since I haven't talked about makeup in this blog yet. I'll start of by saying that my parents don't really like it when I spend my money on makeup. They're not against me wearing it which I'm so grateful for, but they say I waste my money. I only get a few bucks per week, so it takes pretty long for me to save up. I own a fair amount of high end and drugstore makeup. My interest in makeup started in the beginning of grade 7, about a year and a half ago. I started off with eyeliner and mascara. My first eyeliner was Revlon colorstay, the twist-up one and the mascara I used was a sample my mom got from purchasing her Clinique skincare system, but the very first mascara was Benefit's Badgal lash. Some of you are probably wondering why I didn't buy a drugstore mascara instead. The reason is that I love to watch youtube videos and this one girl talked about it a lot and her lashes looked amazing! I never repurchased it because I wanted to try out new things, so its been a loooong time! My parents didn't take me to MAC or Sephora to get a makeover or anything like that at all. I remember the first time I tried a liquid liner, it was a disaster. I'm a total perfectionist so when I tried to do the wing and it wasn't equal at all. Every time I tried, it would get thicker and thicker. It was a disaster, that was when I learned that makeup is definitely not easy. 
        Anyways, my mom didn't wear much makeup, so I pretty much taught myself everything I know about makeup right now. I also taught my mom things about makeup since she only wears foundation. I learned all the things I know right now is  from youtube videos and by doing my own research. I hope to make fashion and beauty videos in the future. I tried asking my parents a few months ago, but they refused. I get that its for my safety, but I still want to make videos when I get a little bit older! 
       So my collection has grown, its not like the beauty gurus on youtube, but enough for my daily needs. Until this day, I don't wear foundation, only concealer since my skin is sensitive and I breakout really easily. I use the Maybelline dream lumi touch right now and its decent. I need a more moisturizing one for my spots or acne scars though because my skin is dry and the Maybelline one can look pretty flaky. Do you guys know a concealer that's really really moisturizing? Also, I'm a lip junkie! If I were to splurge on something, it would most likely be a lip product or a skin care product. 

        I hope it was a decent 'My makeup story.' It's everywhere, but I tried! I'll try to post more often, but I'll need suggestions! Please give me ideas and feel free to comment. I really need you guys to tell me what you think and what I can improve on! Comment and Subscribe!!!

HAUL!!! ~spring~

Hey guys! I went to the mall today and picked up a few spring things. Even though from where I live there's still snow outside, that didn't stop me from buying these babies! ;) All of the clothes I bought were from Material Girl, except for one. Didn't do it on purpose, I promise! I also sneaked in 2 makeup items that I repurchased because I am running out!

I personally like the jacket unzipped, but just in case any of you
 are wondering how it looks when its zipped up; there you go. (:
I highly recommend the Sephora waterproof eye makeup remover!
I haven't tried the non-waterproof one, so I can't really say much about it.

coral pants- Material Girl
mint pants- Material Girl
yellow pants- Jessica Simpson
collared dress- Material Girl
jean/leather jacket- Material Girl

Makeup remover- Sephora
Brow gel with mini tweezers- Anastasia

I almost bought this really cute circle skirt, but I controlled myself! I feel so proud *pats myself on the back* YEAH! haha. And yes, I stood on top of my bathroom counter just to take a picture with the pants on. Its unsafe but I'm still alive! xD I really really need a full length mirror! ahaha. Also, I don't recommend doing that!!! No no.
Right now, I'm so exhausted from playing Just Dance 4! Working out while having fun? Sounds good to me! If you have Costco near you, you can purchase it for really cheap! I got mine for $19.99!!! 

That is all! Comment and Subscribe? (:

Happy Spring!

First blog post, boring spring break, crazy ideas and stepping outside of the box.

Hey guys! I decided to make a blog and hopefully update often. Its spring break btw, so yay! Anyways, about two hours ago my parents left for work and here's me alone with nothing else to do: except the dishes, my book report, my art project and the laundry. But everyone knows I'm not doing any of that.... maybe later! hahaha. When I'm alone at home, which happens a lot since my parents are busy, I like to do my hair and makeup just for fun. I'm pretty sure other people do this too! or is it only me? :/ haha. Today, I changed it up a weeeee bit because of the fact that I am sick and I don't want my makeup to get all germ-y. A big no no.

Here it is... :D

excuse the weird hand thing, ahaha!
I look so washed out. ahah
No filter or anything, it was just really bright in my room.

Please take note that I did not wear this out today. If I'm feeling pretty daring, maybe I'll wear this ahah.... Plus, there's still snow out for gods sake! I can't wear shorts outside yet, but I'm EXCITED to! :D
