Makeup Time!


So last night we had a Mexican fiesta/Christmas party and my friend Trinity (14) let me do her makeup, and here is what I came up with I think it's pretty in a worldly kind of way.(wouldn't ever do it on myself because it's just wrong but it's pretty)
Well then I let her do mine,

Then my friends Ally(10) and Erin (12)
Did mine.
We had fun though.

It's that....


Time Of Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So,We have 


I cant wait!!!!
I have bought my families entire load of Christbirth preasents and some thing more!

Every Christmas we wake up early and all gather on the couch in the living room, take out our Bibles and Daddy reads us the Christmas story.
After that we open Stockings and then mom and dad open their presents first and then us.

I remember one year when when my brothers were here before they left for college, us kids had been waiting for ever to open our gifts, and we rushed down stairs and mom and dad were their and dad mentioned he didn't have his Bible.
Automatically out of childhood reflex we all shot for the door.
But now it's not the same.
My Brothers are gone.
For some time I have been without my oldest bro. Cody.
But this is my first Christmas without either of my brothers.
I don't know what to expect.
If anyone knows what I'm going through please comment and let me
know how you deal with the pain.

How to make Compact powder!


I've been trying to create my own compact tinted powder but, I've been hitting rock bottom.
Until the other day.
I had been messing with the idea of using Baby powder for the powdery part of it, and then adding my foundation and\or BB Cream.
And I have been amazed with the final result.
It's softer then store bought stuff, not to mention cheaper.
So watch my video and enjoy your results.

My acne story...


When I was 12 I started puberty.
Right then I started getting pimples and acne spots.
Since then I've tried every thing,to get rid of them.
I've tried store bought products,facemasks, I even tried steaming.
Nothing worked for me it was always a little better but my acne was still clearly visible.
So after watching multiple YouTube videos I finally found something....a comment on one of the videos said..rubbing alcohol will take it away fast.
So I tried it and my acne is getting easier to cover up.
I even go to the store with out makeup sometimes.
I keep telling myself that if people want to be my friends it will be cause of my heart not perfect skin.
So if you have acne try rubbing alcohol.
Apply it all over your face before bed, in the morning use a wipe to remove it and apply moisturizer and your makeup and do this until your acne is gone.

Top ten fav beginner makeup products +bonus!!


Ok so I know it is hard to find good inexpensive makeup products when u first start wearing make up.
I mean when I first started wearing makeup( July,8,2013) I had no idea what:eye shadow,liner,lip junk,blush,foundation. Powder,and concealer I should buy.

But I searched around and found different products that I liked.  I went to different stores and tried out new things. I'd get allowance  And the first thing I'd do was buy some make up so I can try out my options.
So as I found things I thought eventually I would do a blog post about what I found 
So here's that post.

First face,instead of an expensive foundation I suggest an inexpensive BB cream.
The one I'm demonstrating is from Garnier and is around $10, but a little goes a long way it would last up to a year.(the tube I mean)lol
It also gives excellent coverage.

Cover stick!

The one i bought  is from essence it only costed me $4. Gives decent coverage.(if you are looking for very high coverage products don't look here the products  I'm giving you aren't exactly the best coverage but they give good coverage for a moderate acne, if you have high acne and are looking for more expensive ,higher coverage products, then buy Mac, revlon or cover girl.)
But this cover stick is pretty good.

I love this soft high coverage powder, it makes my skin soft...the powder in the photo above is homemade powder I'll post it soon. $4

This silky touch blush looks very very natural.
You will see that the blush is also from essence.(favorite brand,$3

Eye shadow!
This brand is from B pretty.
It cost around $3 and it comes in a palate  of 4.
I've had since July.

My liner is from catrice.
I got it for $1 and I love it I some times just wear it and mascara.

Of course ESSENCE!
It looks very pretty and is not too dark.$3

Lip stuff,2 products.
My lip stick is from essence and it is so soothing to my dry lips.
They have a big variety to choose from and I just love it!!!!
And maybellines lip stain.
Mine is very used.(ignor the tube)
This lip stain cost about $2 and is very easy to apply.
What I like about this one is it doesn't dry automatically so if you mess up its easy to correct.
Now for the BONUS!!!!!!!;0

This is my makeup today:
Cute huh?
My skin looks oily cause of the flash.

I love the natural eyes with blue liner.

Here are the products I used:

Maybellines 200 brownie points eye shadow.
(Also the light color in the b pretty green palate.) $2

Deborah milanos paste eye shadow stick in the shade turquoise.
I love it and it is water proof.
And of corse mascara.

And there it is.
Hope you enjoy I paired it with my maybelline lip stain.

Comment and tell me what your favorite drug store products are;-P
