TAG! My Perfect Imperfections

So, Andrea from Andreaschoice made up a youtube tag video focusing on her "Perfect Imperfections". The way I interpreted this tag was to focus on the "imperfect" things about yourself that make you who you are. It also shows that everyone is human and has things that they don't like about themselves...little insecurities. But also with that comes the things that you DO like about yourself. I decided to follow along the other youtube gurus and film my own Perfect Imperfections video. I hope you can watch this and other guru's videos and be inspired to embrace who you are. :) and maybe even possibly uploading your own perfect imperfections video! :)

Halloween Tutorial: Peacock

AAAH! So I completely forgot to post a ...well..blogpost on another halloween tutorial that I did before I left for halloween weekend. It was a peacock look. I dont know what's going on with youtube or my editor, but my videos have been uploading funny lately. I'll upload a certain edited version (or so i think i did) and then when I see the video on my page, it shows up with random cuts. Eh, oh well. I tried to re-upload several videos so many times, and nothing changed. Hopefully my latest video will upload correctly soon enough! ANYWAYS, onto the peacock look. I was a peacock this halloween! I didnt do too much crazy stuff with my makeup though. I was going to and then I realized that I didnt' have much time to get ready. This is what i originally wanted to do. Click here for the Youtube tutorial!

But this is what I ended up doing for the actual halloween party. It was a similar look to my "sexy secretary" look but I added a hint of dark blue and purple eyeshadow. You probably can't tell by the pictures though. I also made my own costume! These were the only photos that you could actually see my costume in.

Enjoy~! :)

Tutorial: Sandara Park from 2ne1 - It Hurts MV

Hi guys! So I'm sorry I haven't done a tutorial/blogpost for a couple days. I was out of town the the weekend. I figured I would start up again by posting a simple look. If you guys haven't seen the new 2ne1 music video, go check it out. Dara's makeup was so simple and cute so I wanted to do a look like hers. It really didn't consist of much besides eyeliner and blush. Here are a few screencaps of the music video.

I know I look ABSOLUTELY nothing like her, but why not give her make-up look a go? Haha. I'm a bit tanner than her so my blush doesn't show up as vivid as hers does and I don't have double eye-lids...but I hope you guys get the idea! Here are a few pics.

Products Used:
BH Cosmetics - 88 Neutral Eyeshadow Palette
BH Cosmetics - Neutral Eyeshadow/Blush Palette
Missha BB Cream - shade 23
Mary Kay Mineral foundation

I was bored and figured I would play around with some of my more vibrant colored makeup. This look is still completely wearable for everyday but still has that pop of color. I used my BH Cosmetics 88 matte eyeshadow palette. I also used an NYC white eyeliner as the base...this REALLY intensified the colors!!! It was only $0.93 at wal-mart! hehe :D I love finding good deals. Well, here's the look!

Halloween Tutorial: Vampire (Katherine from The Vampire Diaries)

I know I look nothing like Nina Dobrev but I tried to do a tutorial to kinda get the feel for her character as Katherine when she's in vampire mode. Click here for the youtube tutorial!
Here are some pictures that I looked at for inspiration.

I wish I had a pair of vampire fangs to put on to show you guys....but the truth is I don't.  :( I'm sorry. Fangs would totally complete the look though. Like I said before, this is more of an inspired look. Not that many products were needed. The most important things for this look are a foundation that is a few shades lighter than your natural skintone, matte black eyeshadow, and a red eyeshadow, Katherine/Elena's signature black leather jacket and long curly hair. Here are a few pictures of the look on me! Towards the end, it got too hard to look evil and conniving..... so i just made silly faces and smiled. lol

You can't really tell from the pictures, but I put in my pink circle lenses because the vampires in the show get these glossy red eyes once they go into vampire mode. The pink circle lenses were PERFECT for this effect. I also used my Hello Gorgeous Extensions in order to get Katherine's perfect loose long curls. I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I did! :)

Products Used:
Graftobian Hi-Def Creme - Warm Palette #1
bareminerals - Mineral Veil
BH Cosmetics - 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette
thefaceshop - Extreme brush pen eyeliner in Black Force 01
Revlon Matte lipstick - Nude Attitude 001

Another NOTD: Green + Silver w/ Black Feather

This was one of the simplest nail art thingymajiggers I've done in a while. I used a mint green base color and with a black nail art polish, I added feathers onto my ring fingers and added silver tips to every finger. I finished it off by adding a clear top coat. I don't think the green looks that great for my skintone, but I can't but help LOVING the color! It's so calm and cool looking. I hope you guys like it!

NOTD: Kawaiii~~~

This is a terrible picture, but neither of my camera's batteries are charged yet so I had to use my webcam on my lappy. Sorry!! :( After I got done, I realized it's kind of a down-played gyaru nail art type of nail. It's blingy and bold but not toooo much. I think it's a completely wearable nail.

I used a pearl wet'n'wild nail polish from a LOOOOONG time ago for the base color(i'm surprised it hasn't gotten too clumpy and unusable) Then using a holographic black polish from Missha I drew an angled tip. I think the hardest part was adding the silver "lace" detail with an art brush nail polish. I realized that this part was completely unnecessary by the time I finished -_-. Then, using a clear top coat, I painted one finger at a time and added flatback rhinestones of two different sizes before the clear nail polish dried. I'm really clumsy with my nails, so the rhinestones always seem to fall off. I'm always washing dishes without gloves, etc. I guess I don't take too good care of my nails >< Anyone have any suggestions on keeping nail decorations last? I'd LOVE to hear them haha.

Welll, here's the disgustingly grainy and unflattering picture. I'll try to upload a better picture in the near future.

Here's my NOTD. I just used a baby pink polish as the base and added some black dots all over. A couple fingers have a few random magenta dots. After all that dried, i added silver glitter spots all over and applied a clear top coat. Enjoy!
Here's another NOTD pic from a few weeks back that I completely forgot to upload. It's pretty random. I didn't have any idea what I was going to do and I just did whatever. Lol

LUUUX, nails, hair, makeup

I know I've been lacking quite a bit in updating my blog. BUT it's for a good reason! I've been trying to get more steady with my YouTube channel so I've been neglecting my blog for a little bit. I'm so sorry!!! :( Anyways, I've done quite a few tutorials since my last post and I wanted to show you guys a few pictures! But, before we get to that...I'm so excited to say that I'VE JOINED LUUUX! I know several YT beauty gurus have been tweeting/making videos about it and  I was really curious as to what it was. So I checked it out, registered, posted, etc. It's basically like another blog where you can post things and rack up points to win prizes. I figured why not try it out! It's actually kind of fun! If you guys want to check it out as well here's my specific link . I don't really know how else to share my page with you guys. And I will be up front about it...if you join by clicking that link then I believe I do benefit by gaining some points. BUT that is not the reason I'm posting that link!

Here is my nail of the day for today ( I used my sinful colors polish in Dream On (a matte magenta) for the tips and painted on a silver glitter (LA Colors art deco in Silver glitter). Then went over it with an LA Girl Flare clear polish for the top coat.
What do you guys think??

22nd Birthday

Hi all again! I don't think anyone really knows but it was my 22nd birthday on Aug 3rd. I didn't really get to celebrate because I had to take my MCAT exam (medical school admittance exam) on the 5th :( . So, I basically just studied ALL day on my bday! Anyways, the day after my exam a few of my sorority sisters and I had a joint birthday party. All our birthdays are really close to each other so we figured WHY NOT! It was at their new apartment (they're still staying at MSU but since I have graduated I don't really have a place anymore lol) It was a DRAMA FREE night ..THANK GOODNESS haha! It was good to see everyone before I left for Alabama. Here are a few pics from the night. And THANK YOU to all the people who were able to make it.

The birthday girls! We're all in the same family line in the sorority.
