DIY: Valentine's Day Room Decor

Hello my lovely angels!! Today I am going to show you some easy do it yourself room decorations ideas. I only did two projects and I love the way my room looks. I also have a video that shows you the steps instead you don't understood my written instructions, :)

Hanging Hearts:

So for this project you are going to need a couple of things: construction paper, yarn or string, glue, tape or a hot glue gun, and scissors.

* Now first your going to get the construction paper and begin to fold it. You can fold it portrait style for longer strips or landscape for smaller strips. I did a mixture of both. Your gonna fold it in half, then again, and until you can't anymore or your desired thickness.

* Now you are just going to cut the strips.

* You are going to get a strip add glue towards the bottom and fold over connecting the ends. You basically are going to do this to all the strips and this is going to create half of the heart.

* Then along the top you are going to add glue but don't do it all the way start from the bottom and go about half way. Then quickly apply the yarn or string over the glue.

* Finally you are just going to add glue on both sides of the string grab another half heart and apply it on the glue. Now you are just going to do this and add as many hearts to one string I added 3.

"I Love You" Banner

So for this project you are going to need: 3 white papers, colors, scissors, glue or sting and yarn.

* You are going to start by folding the papers in half.

* Then you are going to cut the papers in half, you are going to need 5 sheets.

* Now the fun part, on 3 of the papers you are going to draw a big heart and in them you are going to put "I love you" and on 2 sheets you can draw random things I drew a heart and a flower.

* Now you are just going to color everything.

* So to attach the papers to a string you are going to be working backwards. I add glue to the back of the paper that has "you" and quickly put the string over the glue. Then with however much space you want between these pictures I used the width of my hand you are going to put one of the random drawings, followed by the paper with "love", then the final random drawing and finally ending with "I".

So within the next few weeks expect to see many Valentine theme videos!! I decided to start with a very girly look, it's some what neutral and I just love that it has the girly aspect to it. So if you would like to know how I did it be sure to keep reading, and of course there will be many pictures and don't forget to check out my video to watch me create this look! <3

Products Used:
  • Wet n Wild Take On The Day Eyeshadow Primer
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool
  • BH Cosmetics 1st edition palette: Brown, Off White, Red Brown, Matte Black, Light Yellow, White
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

* So as always you are going to start off by applying an eyeshadow primer be sure to apply some to the lower lash-line as we will be putting shadow there too.

* Next apply a white base, I used my maybelline color tattoo in too cool.

* Now we are going to apply shadows. First you are going to apply a brown shade into the crease, this is going to help add depth as well as help blend out the colors we are going to apply later.

*  Next apply an off white color with a hint of a yellow shade onto the lid.

* Now apply a reddish brown shade into the crease blending into the brown. Also apply it under the lower lash line.

* Apply a little bit of black into the outer corner for a bit of depth and don't forget to blend it out.

* Taking a smaller brush apply a white base in the inner corner and then go over it with a white shadow.

* Now apply a highlight color under the brow.

* Now just line your eyes to your liking and apply mascara.

* For the lips I wanted to keep it girly so I used a peach lipstick and went over it with a pink lip gloss.

My foundation routine for a flawless face

Hello my lovely angels, today I'm going to be showing you how I achieve a flawless face using drugstore products. I have an oily face so hopefully this well help other girls who have an oily/combination face. I know how annoying it is when we apply our makeup looking hot and hours later we look like a hot oily mess. So allow me to show you have I do my foundation routine and share tips to help you look a like movie star through out the day.

Products used:

  • Too Faced Primed and Poreless face primer
  • Dollar Tree Milk of Magnesia
  • Revlon Color Stay liquid foundation Oily/Combination in 370 Toast Hale
  • Wet n Wild Coverall Concealer Stick
  • Elf Blot Sheets
  • Elf Pressed Powder in Honey
  • Bh Cosmetics Contour and Blush palette
Brushes Used:

  • BH Cosmetics Foundation Brush
  • Elf Powder Brush
  • BH Cosmetics Blush Brush
  • Elf Mini Stippling Brush
  • Crown Deluxe Contour Brush

*So starting off you are going to want to make sure you've washed your face and even apply some moisturizer! Yes, that's right you must moisturizer your face even if your face gets oily. I would suggest going with an oil-free moisturizer. 

*Now once your skin has soaked up that moisturizer, your going to want to apply a primer. I usually start off with applying a primer that helps minimize pores, I usually just apply the on my nose. Then I apply Milk of Magnesia all over the rest of my face using a foundation brush. Once the m.o.m has dried to a white mask that's when you're ready to apply your foundation.

*Now that your face is and primed and ready it's time to apply your foundation. I use the Revlon Color Stay Foundation in Toast Hale. I tap the bottle on my CLEAN hand and use a stippling brush ( Elf powder brush) to apply my foundation. I feel a stippling brush definitely gives an airbrush kind of effect and helps the face look flawless. Make sure to blend onto your neck and into your hairline.

*Now your just going to apply some concealer onto areas that need some coverage, I usually don't do that since this foundation does give an amazing coverage. However, I will use a lighter concealer to highlight under my eyes, down my nose, cupid's bow, chin and forehead. I blend it all out with my finger.

*Before you apply powder, this is probably like a really important step. You must, and I repeat must blot your face. This will help absorb excess oily from the foundation and concealer and this also helps makes your foundation last a lot longer! 

*Finally we are going to apply powder to the face. I usually use a small brush and my bh cosmetics contour and blush pallet and apply the second lightest color onto the areas where I highlighted. I then use a small stippling brush to apply face powder onto my face.

*Now to finish up the face just contour and add blush! :)

Ta-da we are finally done with our face! I love the way my face looks and I hope you like it too. Just because you have an oily face doesn't mean you can't look like a movie star, now go out there and show off your beauty to the world!! I love you guys and don't forget to check out my video to actually see how I do my foundation routine. So, until next time have a fanta-bulous day. Now for more pictures!!!

What's to come for 2014

Hello my lovely angels!!!

I know it's been forever since I've written a blog post or anything. I've been a little active on my youtube channel and feel horrible for ignoring my blog. Anyways, during this little break I've been doing a lot of thinking about the future of this blog and my channel.

 When I started this blog a little over a year ago I wanted it to have a variety of different post not just tutorials or reviews. I've felt like I lost my focus and it saddens me. I really want to switch things up. So as I said I've been doing a lot of thinking, and I was thinking about doing some D.I.Y/craft posts (I absolutely love crafting and do it yourself projects), also start adding skincare things (even some of my favorite homemade mask, since I use those a lot too), hair posts(since this year one of my resolutions is to start styling my hair more) and one a month feature some of the things I crochet.

So those are my ideas of things to incorporate into this lovely blog of mine. I really want to show you guys different sides of me. I'm not all about just beauty, I'm a gal who loves anything that allows me to express myself. I promise to start posting more withing in the weeks to come. Right now I'm working on some pretty interesting posts. I love all you and thanks for sticking by me. I promise I won't disappoint and can't wait to show you guys some awesome things this year. If you have any request of what you would like to see let me know in the comments. I'll talk to you guys again soon!
