How To Wear Sparkles for the Holidays!

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

I've had a lot of people requesting for me to do a video showing how to wear glitter. So I figured since it's  the holiday season, this was the perfect time to do it. 

Whether you are looking for something festive for holiday pictures, holiday parties or just being festive, this looks beautiful on anyone ;) You can basically just change up the lid base color and then apply the sparkles over. I've done this with pink, blue, purple, white and grey underneath and every time it looks super luscious. 

If you want to be super festive just wear some red lipstick and BAM..... HOLIDAY here I come!

I hope everyone's Christmas Shopping is going well, I havent even started :( POOP!!!!

How To Dress Cute in Cold Weather!

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


A few people have been asking me for ideas or tips on how to dress for very cold weather, without looking like total poo. We live in Montana and it gets dilly dang cold here, so it tends to make you want to wear a big puffy coat and sweats but a lot of people still have to go to work and look presentable. So here are my tips to looking cute and stylish while keeping warm :)

1. Its all about LAYERING!! Wear a long sleeve top underneath your main "snazzy" top. This will keep you warm but still look put together.


2. CARDIGANS or LONG SWEATERS. These are my favorite thing to wear in cold weather, they are cute and warm and cover your booty if you like to wear leggings ;)


3. SCARVES!!! I love infinity scarfs because they give that extra layer around your neck and are so in right now!


4. SKINNY JEANS or nice THICK LEGGINGS! I only have thinner leggings, so I try to make sure I wear something longer to keep me warmer but if you have a jegging or skinny jeans, these work great for still looking stylish.... you can tuck them into your boots so if it's wet or snowing outside, the bottom of your pants wont drag and get wet and mangled. And.... your legs will look nice and trim showing of your shape.


5. BOOTS! If you have a slight heel, they will make any outfit more dressy, make your legs look longer and leaner and keep you foot and lower leg warm. If it snows wear you live, go for something like an UGG boot that has traction, so you won't biff it and fly like Superman ( I did this one year, it sucked)


6. A PEACOAT or TRENCH COAT! If you opt for a shorter one, you won't get the extra warmth for you booty, so maybe wear that if you have skinny jeans or a slightly thicker legging. If you are wearing leggings and they are on the thinner side, then a nice mid length pea coat or trench coat will look professional, while keeping your upper body warm and your booty and thighs covered too :)


WHAT I WORE IN THE VIDEO:
Long sleeve cotton white top from Old Navy
Loose long cream sleeveless top from Imaginary Voyage
Long Tan Open Sweater from Gap
Black Leggings from Deb
Suede Brown Boots from ???? ( I got mine at goodwill) Another great boot without a heel is Bearpaw Boots, they are like UGG's but WAY CHEAPER! I got mine for $39
Leopard Infinity Scarf from Express
Tan Trench Coat from Express
Flower Ring from Forever 21 (I think)
Leopard Bangle from Forever 21
Earrings are just little pretend diamond studs but I don't know wear they are from.. Maybe Kohls?







Hope this helps my loves! Stay warm and snazzy in the dilly dang cold and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!! I hope you eat lots of yummy food and be a piggy and enjoy yourself with your family!

I'm so thankful for my amazing family, beautiful home that's new and snazzy and for all of my amazing you tube friends! Thank you for making this year so great and helping me to reach 50,000 subscribers!!! YAH BUDDY!!!!! I'm so excited!

Long Lasting Make Up Tips!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

I have had a lot of people asking me what I recommend for long lasting make up. Ranging from face to eyes to lips.... so here are the products that I really like.

FACE:
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup (Linen) 
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (Intensity 2.0)
Lorac Porefection PF3
Mac Cremeblush in Lady Blush
Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush Exposed

EYES:
Mac Paint Bare Canvas
Avon Super Shock Gel Eyeliner
Physicians Formula Gel/Cream Liner
Urban Decay Cream Shadows Get them here for only $2
Most waterproof Mascaras should be long lasting

LIPS:
Pixie by Petra Lip Blush (Happiness & Love) 
Maybelline Baby Lips in Soft Peach
Loreal Infallable Never Fail Lipstick

And of course...... don't forget your make up setting spray! This will keep your makeup in place and looking fresh all day with up to 16 hours without having to touch up!!!

My favorite is the Skindinavia Make Up Setting Spray & No More Shine (oily formula). It's great for sensitive or acne prone skin too, so you dont have to worry about any irritation :)

HAIR:
Kenra Volume Spray

I hope this helps! Thank you so much for watching/reading and have a great day!!!!

Sigma Brush Haul!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011



Sigma are some of my favorite make up brushes. They are super soft, apply makeup beautifully and don't shed. They also clean very nicely. I just use olive oil to remove the make up and then wash them gently with baby shampoo and then lay them flat to dry. I recommend Sigma brushes to anybody, whether you are starting out with makeup or been doing it for a long time, you will love these brushes!

Get Sigma Brushes HERE!!!

Sigma E50 Large Fluff $11

Awesome for applying a single color over the whole lid, if you are in a rush... this is the brush for you!!


Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour $14

Contour your cheeks, temples and jawline!


Sigma E60 Large Shader $11

Apply eyeshadow to your lower lid or right under the browbone.
