The other day I received a Kawaii Etude Hello Kitty mini lipgloss courtesy of YesStyle, and I’ve only two words for it: god send. Why I feel this way could only be explained by my makeup recklessness. Sometimes, I’m just too lazy (or too busy) to figure out what lipgloss to take with me when I’m on-the-go. I usually employ this, grab-whatever-I-see technique. It hasn’t been the most efficient method for me since I usually end up misplacing lipglosses in my bag. The mini lipgloss is designed to prevent this from happening for me. Behold: More »
From Flauntme: To kick off our special dating series, I’m going to cut right to the chase: a girl needs to be careful when choosing her date-night beauty products. Nothing can ruin a great conversation better than when your lipstick decides to make an appearance on your teeth, or if your date is too busy looking at his reflection in your shiny forehead to respond to your questions. Then there is, of course, the danger of smudging your gloss during that end-of-the-night kiss. Here are three secret weapons to prevent makeup mishaps! More »

A supposed 22 year old wanted to piss every girl off in the world by showing that she can look 7 years old.
She definitely pulled off the look thanks to the clothing and makup. Setting that aside, there is speculation that she used photoshop and had surgery done which is probably true.
While I am a bit envious, who would want to look 7 at 22? Me of course!
I can’t believe I haven’t heard about this until now, but the make-up line E.L.F. ( Eyes, Lips, and Face) was bought out by Nordstrom and needs to re-package all their products with the Nordstrom name on it. To that end, they’re selling all of their E.L.F. packaged makeup for ONE DOLLAR. $1. And a flat shipping rate of $7. So buy up a whole ton of makeup with some friends and family and take advantage of this amazing deal!
I got some brushes, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, facial wedges, and color sticks, and combined with orders from a few of my friends, we can split shipping so that I’ll be paying something like $9 or $10 for the equivalent of $60 or $70 worth of makeup. Go crazy!
So I’ll be honest. I have a wishlist that’s about 90 miles long. It’s got everything from electronics to clothes on it, and with sites like Polyvore it gets longer everyday. Unfortunately for me, my birthday is at the end of the year, so waiting for gifts from family seems like forever to me. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t get things for myself whenever right? Well, here are a few of the things on my wishlist that I’m looking at as a personal gift to myself. =)
I’m totally preoccupied with career stuff right now so my posts are probably going to be engineered towards that kind of stuff for a while. I had to learn some tricky things in the process of job hunting that no one but other college-age girls are conscious of, and so here’s to sharing the wealth.
Career Advice of the Day: Business attire is not club attire. Even if you don’t want to work in a corporate setting or don’t plan on it, at some point in time you will probably be in a situation where you need to look it (for interviews or a meeting or anything). This is a brief set of guidelines and hints that work in most industries, but definitely do some research since some industries (i.e. banking) are much stricter than others (i.e. non-profits).
Takeaway lesson should be there are ways to look hot (I mean check out the VS model on the left) without looking like a slut ;)
Suit: Wear a two-pieced matching suit (solid, darker colors such as black, brown, or navy are better if the situation is more conservative). The bottom can be pants or a skirt.
Pants: If you choose pants, they shouldn’t be so low on your hips that you have a muffin top or risk butt-crack exposure, and they shouldn’t be so tight around your ass that it screams slut. They also shouldn’t be so long that you trip over them in your heels. No skinny legs or big flowing trousers. More »
I don’t know if I’ve blogged this yet, as I’m sure I may have; considering the amount of youtube posts I’ve done this past year, but I’m in love with this girl’s handiwork. Her name is Lauren aka Panacea81, she’s from the UK and she’s one of the most loveable, adorable, and talented makeup artists I’ve ever seen on youtube. I was linked to one of her videos by a good friend of mine, and since then I’ve been hooked to her videos. She is AMAZING! Mind you, with practically no formal training in cosmetology, she’s a master at creating the most dynamic and beautiful eye art that can rival the best in the industry.
It was bound to happen. MAC (infamous for their everchanging limited edition collections) has teamed up with Hello Kitty for a new collection set for release on Feb. 12th instores (Feb. 10th online)
The collection features the infamous feline on a variety of cosmetics, from lip glosses to eyeshadows.
A doll will also be avaliable for purchase, and a high end line (for this collection) will feature higher priced lipglosses and more, known as “Hello Kitty Kouture”.
Remember the Barbie collection frenzy? I expect this to outdo that by at least a few thousand more rabid shoppers. Although the packaging is cute, part of me has decided to not buy anything from this collection until the frenzy dies down (by then, I’m sure a lot of the collection will be sold out anyways).
Word is MAC will open up waiting lists in a few weeks for the collection. What does this remind me of? THose people who wait for those super expensive handbags. Oh boy - this stirs up the rabid shoppers even more. I do have my eye on one of the glosses though - the Hello Kitty addition wouldn’t hurt.
Will you try out the Hello Kitty collection? Do you look forward to it?

As we all know, for the past few weeks I’ve been slightly obsessed with Fafinettes, and for Halloween I chose to dress up as one. Well, I decided that my “costume”, pictured to the left, would be a mixture of some of my favorite Fafinettes, but I don’t have any full pictures of my outfit. If you’re wondering what I’m wearing:tank top (2) old school running shorts, leggings, leg warmers and pumps. Also I wanted to give props to the other chicas who donned their Fafinette alter egos for Halloween, and even those who rock their inner Fafinette, no special occassion needed. So here’s to all of the Fafinettes Worldwide!!
My makeup bag is quite the dirty little thing so I finally got off my arse and cleaned it out.
First I thew out all the junk makeup I never wear. It took up so much space that when I did take it out, my makeup bag could actually close with ease. I also threw most of it away since they were old and barely usable.
Next I wiped down the makeup products I did keep with some warm water. While it doesn’t disinfect it, it does keep the bottle looking nice and clean. You can use makeup remover with antibacterial or just soap if you’re feeling really germ-a-phobic. You should only keep certain products for a certain amount of time.
Last is the makeup bag. I’ve had it for a few years now so it’s a bit beaten; the bag is tearing, the zipper is broken and not to mention dirty all around. While I could save money and just throw it in the washer, I decided to switch to my cute Elizabeth Arden makeup bag that I’ve had stashed in my closet. Sometimes you just have to say goodbye!
It’s so nice and clean now and I’ve made it my priority to keep it that way. More »
