Milani Baked Bronzer: Tantastic

image

Hey everyone!
A little while ago I decided to invest in some bronzer. I was using the cream blush that I previously reviewed for a long time, because I feel like for the fall, a deep blush on the cheeks looks nice. But when that started running out, I wanted to invest in a good bronzer. My past experience with bronzer is basically horrible. I am always buying some that are too orangey.

As you can see from the picture, this has beautiful color to it. Being someone with quite pale skin, the swirl of colors really looks great on my face! This is also a body bronzer, so I imagine on your arms or collarbone area it would be lovely! The pale tones blend perfectly with the deep brown and middle brown colors. This is also not a matte bronzer, it’s very shimmery! That made me feel much less intimidated of it. It easily made my skin lool bright, but in a natural way.
The bronzer seems to only be called “TANtastic” (I honestly couldn’t find any other name) and was next to the other baked bronzers that Milani sells. It comes with a tiny brush in the bottom of the compact, which is so cute! It isn’t terribly pigmented, but then again it was cheap (around $8). If you are looking for a natural, easy-to-use bronzer, this is a great choice!
Have any of you ever tried this product? What are your thoughts?

Jennifer Lawrence: Style (and life) Inspiration

Hey guys!

It’s no secret to anyone who knows Β me that I am very much in love with Jennifer Lawrence. I feel like she’s relatable, witty, and beautiful. As someone with a curvier body structure, (AKA not a Taylor Swift body) I always feel confident when I see how well Jennifer carries herself, because she is such a beauty!

Here is Lawrence at this year’s British Academy Film Awards with a beautiful dress. When I saw this dress I remember thinking that there is something just so natural about Lawrence’s style. She is elegant and classy, but she is also very relatable, almost as if you can look at each red carpet dress she picks and think “I would wear the same thing!”.

This isn’t the best picture, but it did show a close up of her makeup, which I wanted to show. She has that smokey, easy-to-do eye makeup, and simple nude lips with a bit of gloss. She is truly what I think of when I am getting ready for an event, and her personality helps to make her a lovable role model.

What do you think of Jennifer?

Fall Treat!

Hey guys!
I made this adorable fall treat with my awesome friend Meg that was so easy, as well as fun! All that’s required is:
Nilla wafers
Hershey kisses
Nestle butterscotch mini kisses
Icing

All you need to do is attatch a hershey kiss upside down to the bottom of a nilla wafer with a dime size amount of icing. After, attatch the smaller butterscotch kiss to the top with icing and hold for a little bit before letting them dry for a good half hour.
These are festive, easy, and so tasty! It would be a great idea to make for thanksgiving, or even as a little Christmas treat.
Tell me what you think!

Revlon Cream Blush Review

Hey everyone!
A little while ago I decided I wanted to try a cream blush. I feel like for fall, it looks very pretty and a lot more noticeable than the powder blushes I usually use. I found a great color called “Rosy Glow” by Revlon that sounded exactly like what I wanted! This looked quite dark in the packaging.

To be honest, I was disappointed. I first thought I was using the blush wrong by applying with my fingers. So I looked up a proper way to put it on with a brush.

But even with a brush, it took layers and layers to work. And by the time I had layered enough to see the color, it usually was blotchy (I’m pretty sure it’s the consistancy, which is less creamy and more balmy). My skin is VERY pale, so I figured a rich color like this would show up nicely, but the cream just isn’t very pigmented. I suppose it could be used if you want a VERY natural and subtle blush on a very pale face.

I also want to note that because I layered so much, I used it up very quickly. I think within a month (or less) I had hit the bottom and was looking for better options. This blush costed about $8, so it wasn’t super expensive. I think I might just do a bit of research before buying another cream blush!
Have any of you used it? What did you think?

Chalkboard Room Accessory

image

Hey guys!
My mom made me this excellent chalk board planner for my dorm! You will need:
-a piece of plywood
-paint (for the base of the plywood)
-chalkboard paint
-stencils
-chalk
-doorknobs (optional)

To do this, you need to paint the plywood the base color. After it’s dried, tape off the sections for the chalk squares and paint them. Once that has dried, put whatever stencil you want over the chalkboard and paint with whatever color you like. Then, glue (or screw in) the doorknobs on the bottom.
Some variations are, you can have one square with Saturday and Sunday, or you can skip the door knobs and use a piece of wire across to hang things on.
This was too hard to hang since we can’t screw things into the wall, but either way works! It’s beautiful and helps keep me organized.
What do you think?
