Happy 2nd Birthday Blog!

Today is the second birthday of my beloved blog, which I 
have been neglecting a lot! I am so happy to have made this page and
have met so many amazing people through it.

The new year will bring new things, new people, and new
experiences and I am very happy to begin yet another
productive year. 

I want to thank all of my old followers and welcome any new ones 
that might come soon. Thank you for your constant support, good comments,
and great motivation. I love you all!

Dark Smoke Never Gets Old




As you guys can see I have been loving smokey eyes...
They are so dramatic and I love the attention it draws to my 
green eyes. For this look I did something a bit differently, I 
lined the bottom of my eyes a lot heavier than usual 
and the turnout was way better than I expected! I received a lot
of compliments on this look and if you want a tutorial let me know!

Products Used: 
Hard Candy Just Face It Foundation
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in #1 Fair
Youngblood HD Powder
Sally Hansen Summer Bronzer
Nars Blush in Orgasm
NYC Brow Powder in Brunette 
Sleek "Oh So Special" Palette 
I used the matte black, matte purple/taupe/ and matte cream
NYC Liquid Liner in Black
Aqua Eyes Black Shadow Base
Select Lashes 
ELF Lipgloss in Fairy 

And here are a couple of videos I recently did 
where I was wearing this makeup look!
Check them out! :)

Bath and Body Works Fall Mini Candle

If you have been living under a rock then you might have not
been able to experience the smells of the fall season candles of
Bath And Body Works... I was lucky enough to be sent a candle through
Influenster and I received the Black Pepper Bergamot mini candle. 

The Black Pepper Bergamot candle has notes of:
spicy black pepper with uplifting bergamot and lavender. 
It seriously smells like a man!

And if some of you have read my Dirty Little Secrets Tag you
may have seen I love the smell of guy deodorant (cologne) 
so this candle was right up my alley!

I love B&BW Candles, they burn nicely and they really fill your room
with a gorgeous smell! I definitely recommend them! 


Mini Candle $3.50; Small Candle $9.50; 
Medium Candle $12.50; 3-Wick Candle $19.50
 you can purchase them

This is the description given from Bath And Body Works :)
Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by our team
 of Home Fragrance experts, including the world's best master perfumers. 
Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an
 exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance

End of October Look!

October is over, and I don't know if its good or bad...
Thankfully (and hopefully) I won't be as busy in the month
of November. I look forward to blogging a lot more!

The look is very simple, just a smokey eye :)

Oh, Hello There! I'm Alive! UPDATES!

Shameful, I know. I have only blogged twice this month..
**head drops in shame**

These next couple of months will be hectic for me, I am doing
college applications, scholarship stuff, and also trying to keep up 
with classes and my (nonexistent) social life. 
Please bear with me and don't forget about me! 
On the good side, I have done my makeup everyday for school, so far!
Even when I wake up late (tee-heee) >.<

On another note I thought it would be cool to let you know which colleges
I am planning on applying to and what major I am declaring..

So my main colleges are:
University of California: San Diego, Irvine, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz
California State University: Bakersfield, Long Beach, Chico, and San Diego
And University of Chicago!

My major is International Relations and Spanish! 

What are your thoughts and are any of you attending any of these schools? 
And here are some recent pictures of me in case you forgot how I look!





Also, I will try to crank out at least two more Halloween tutorials!
