My Life Blog Post #1

Hey loves!
So I guess I can tell you a little about what has been going on in my life lately. I am about to graduate high school in 22 days, CRAZY! I am actually very excited to graduate, I am ready to start a new chapter in my life, which is YOUNG ADULTHOOD. I think I am ready to move on from my high school years, I know I will miss it a lot, especially because my 4 years of high school I was in a program called Health Academy. All the students in the program became a huge family. I will miss it terribly but I know after this I will have a better experience. I am going to go to a community college because I cannot afford to go to a 4 year but I am perfectly fine with that because I will still be going to school. I guess I can tell my followers on my blog certain things of my life. All my Keek and Instagram followers know my religious beliefs. I AM OPEN TO ANY RELIGIOUS BELIEF AND I ACCEPT ANYONE, AND WILL NEVER OFFEND ANYBODY. My sister will serve a Mormon mission, I am super excited for her. I know I will miss her terribly but the 1 year and a half will go by really quick. Am I thinking of serving a mission? I do not know yet. I am still debating, the mission isn't for everyone but it would be a nice experience to get.
I am really excited to be posting blogs of makeup because it is a hobby I am passionate about it. The funny thing is that I want to go into the medical field. I want to do something like nursing but not sure yet. Out of the no where I fall in love with makeup?! Like I never expected myself to be all about makeup. I am actually very happy I got into makeup because it is something I find fun and challenging. I love it and I hope all my followers love it too. Please check out my IG, I have a ton of pictures of makeup that I have done. Also follow my Keek, they are mini vlogs about my life and makeup. Feel free to leave comments, requests, and questions about anything. I will answer them all. I hope everyone has a great day, remember

Soft Teal Eyeshadow Makeup

Hey loves,
I'm back even though it is late. My Senior Ball was this saturday, May 18. It was extremely fun. I had such a blast, all my girlfriends looked gorgeous and all my guy friends looked extremely handsome. Any who, I have this look that I did for Mother's Day this year. My outfit was a teal skirt and a brown shirt. In this picture my eyeshadow looks green but in reality it looks teal. This makeup is extremely easy to do. I will not post step by step because it very time consuming and I have school tomorrow, so i have to go to sleep soon but I will post the products I used. This time I did take a picture of my full face so I will post all the products. Everything is drugstore except for the eyeshadow.

First Pictorial :)

Hey Lovelies,
I am very excited to do my first pictorial! Okay, so I am very new at this, the picture will not show the step by step but I will explain it all do not worry sweeties! Also please feel free to leave comments on how to improve my blog! I will take all types of criticism but please do not leave any hate comments. Okay so lets get started ...

This look I did on my friend for our Senior Ball. She wore a silver dress with silver and red jewels. I did not use red in this look because she wanted something light and perky on her eyes. I will post all the products I used on her eyes. I will only show the eyes because I did not take a picture of her full face. 

1) To start off I primed the eyes with Urban Decays Primer Potion. I used my finger to blend the primer all over the lid, up to the brown bone and under the eyes. 

2) Next I used the NAKED 2 palette from Urban Decay. I used the color PISTOL in the outer corner and blended above the crease. I used a fluffy brush to blend the color.

3) To intensify the look I used the NAKED 1 palette from Urban Decay and used the color GUNMETAL and added this in the outer corner only and blended it into the crease very lightly. 

4) On the eyelid I used the color BOOTYCALL from the Urban Decay NAKED 2 palette. Add this color all over the lid and bring up just a tad in to the crease to eliminate any harsh lines.

5) To highlight the brow bone I used the color VIRGIN from the Urban Decay NAKED 1 palette. Do not add too much highlighter because we want to keep the makeup look subtle.

6) In the inner tear ducts I used the color SIN from Urban Decay NAKED 1 palette to make the eyes appear more awake. Also I added this color under the eyes but only half way.

7) After I added the color SIN, I used the color GUNMETAL from Urban Decay NAKED 1 palette, under the eyes in the outer corner connecting it to the eyeshadow at the top. This will give it a smokey eye effect.

8) For eyeliner I used WET N WILD gel liner with a bent liner brush from ELF, you can get these brushes in TARGET for a very cheap price, I bought mines for $3. Make a winged liner but do not bring it up very high, this look is very elegant.

9) For mascara I used Maybellines ROCKET VOLUME EXPRESS in waterproof. You can use any mascara that will lengthen the lashes but it has to be waterproof because this helps it stay on longer especially if you will be out all night for PROM! 

10) On the waterline I used a pencil liner from WET N WILD, add a lot of liner to intensify the look, this will make your eyes pop out more. Also, add coats of mascara on the bottom lashes.

Okay, we are done with the eyes! I did not take a picture of the full face because we did not do full face only the eyes. Anywho, I hope this helped a lot and I hope it can help you with ideas for prom or for any other special occasion. I hope everyone will have a great prom, be safe and I will post another blog  Monday because tomorrow I will be at my SENIOR BALL! Okay lovelies have a great day and please follow me, my information is in my "About me". 

All products used were purchased by me and I am not paid to mention any of these brands.
