MY QUICK GO-TO “DAYTIME SMOKY EYE” PICTORIAL


I’m quite a fan of wearing a smoky smudgy eye in the day as long as you pair it with neutral cheeks and lips. It’s a way to look casually sultry. AND it brings out any eye color.

There ARE ways to keep the look softer  (AND not spending too much time on it).

  1. Stick with cream-to-powder shadows. They are fast to blend, don’t fade, and have no fall-out to clean up off your cheeks. I used Dior in the pictorial, but also mixed in Colourpop. In the final full-face shot, I had on Maybelline Bad To The Bronze. Use whatever you like as long as it’s the type that dries and sets.
  2. If you have sensitive/watery/smeary eyes in general, use something like Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Pencil in your inner rims and leave the soft smudgy stuff to above the lashes.
  3. Don’t wing your liner or shadow upwards in a typical catty smoky shape. The point to this look is keeping a doe-eyed, rounded expression, so it’s softer and more approachable. Not too vavavoom for the day.
  4. Recreate the look using any cream shadow shade and smudgy black liner. Remember the black is just there to create that smoky shadow near your lashes. It’s not meant to be a visible line.
  5. Use your matte bronzer in your socket line as a transition color if you’re lazy. It’s only there to soften out any harsh lines and to contour your socket
  6. For blending cream color onto the lid, look for synthetic shadow brushes that are medium softness; not too stiff and flat, not too soft and floppy.

What about an AU where everything is the same except it’s Makkachin that dies instead of Vicchan so it’s Victor who bombs the FS instead of Yuuri. The nerves still fuck with Yuuri somewhat but not nearly as bad, so he ends up getting bronze, but Victor is such a wreck that he misses the podium entirely, doesn’t come in last, but fourth place is not something that happens to Victor Fucking Nikiforov. Chris ends up getting gold, but neither him nor Yuuri can really be all that happy about beating Victor when the poor guy is so heartbroken about his best friend dying (even Yakov doesn’t have the heart to yell at Victor much.) So Yuuri has conflicting feelings about everything, wants to be proud of getting a medal at his first Grand Prix but doesn’t feel he earned it, wanted to compete with Victor but not like this, is actually really worried about Victor…and still ends up getting drunk and asking Victor to dance because ‘you’re way too pretty to be so sad.’ And he wants to make Victor smile again! Come to Hasetsu, Victor! A soak in the onsen will make you feel better! And my mom can cook for you! And you can cuddle with my dog! And you can coach me, so next year I can win the GPF and feel like I earned it!!!

And then of course Yuuri blacks out and forgets all about it until a few months later when Victor shows up at the inn, petting Vicchan with a bittersweet smile on his face.

MAYBE ITS MY FAULT- CALFREEZY IMAGINE

So I got carried away and this is really long… But I also love it so I hope you do.
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


Maybe I was the cause of all the problems in my relationship with Cal. Maybe it was actually me and not him. I mean we both had fucked up schedules and many times we went weeks without actually seeing each other.

He goes to bed around three in the morning and I wake up at about four in the morning to train. I don’t get home till about five and by then Cal is already filming or doing other things.

I’m a gymnast and he’s youtuber and quite honestly I thought his schedule was messing us up, but now I’m sure it’s mine.

I do an hour of yoga and stretching before eating breakfast and doing a few miles of running. Then I drive to the gym where I live from six to three. Then I finally head home to my flat and I’m exhausted, but it doesn’t end there because after dinner I go back to the gym to teach a class for the little ones.

Unfortunately, for my relationship, I do this Monday through Friday and weekends are the same minus teaching classes.

Maybe I was the reason my relationship was failing. It was most likely me and the olympics.

“Why are you falling off the beam on a simple turn?!” My trainer screams from the other side of the gym and I look up at him.

“Because my relationship is failing!” I scream back.

“Well get back on the beam and focus. Even the three year olds can turn on beam without falling and you have a gold medal on it.”

He has a point. You’d think after being an overall bronze medalist at worlds two years in a row and having a gold medal on beam at the olympics, I’d be able to do better.

“Can you get through today’s practice or do I need to send you home to work out your boyfriend troubles?” He asks and I shake my head.

“No because he doesn’t even realize that we’re falling apart.” I explain before stepping back onto the beam.

“Nope get on down. You’re not gonna get injured right now because you’re unfocused.” He reaches up and grabs my waist before pulling me down.

“Go home, talk to him and come back here tomorrow ready to stick the routine we’ve given you because in two months you’re competing in the qualifier and I need your head on straight and the routine clean.”

“Okay.” I nod in agreement before walking over to my bag and pulling on my team Great Britain sweatshirt that match my blue shorts that sit on top of my leotard. Once I’m outside I pull out my phone and stare at it for a few moments.

“Hey Cal, can I come over?”

“Yeah of course. I just have some of the guys over filming. I thought you had training.”

“Let me out early, but I’ll be over in a few. Love you.”

“Love you too. I’ll unlock the door.” He hangs up and by the time I get to the flat all I hear is pure chaos.

“It’s the Olympic gymnast who got stuck dating Callum!” I hear Harry shout before pulling me in for a hug.

“Aren’t you usually doing flips at this time of day?” He asks and I nod.

“Coach sent me home.” I explain as he steps away and let’s Cal come over to greet me.

“You hurt?” He questions before kissing me on my head.

“No just off my game I guess. I mean I fell off the beam doing a simple pirouette and I’m the gold medalist on beam. I do pirouettes in my sleep.” I ramble slightly and he notices something is wrong.

“Well go change and join us.” He pats me on the shoulder and I nod before placing my bag down and walking to his room. I pull off my leotard and other clothes before grabbing one of his weezy tops and pulling my shorts back on. I go to leave his room before looking in the mirror and realize I actually look like shit.

“I’m not gonna be caught on camera with this.” I mumble as I pull my hair out of the messy bun. I quickly put some concealer on my neck because a bruise the beam gave me looks like a hickey and then I’m ‘ready’ to be seen by others.

“Guys look it’s the girl with the Olympic gold medal.” Someone throws a vlogging camera in my face.

“Stop it. It was one gold medal.”

“Yeah but you’re family has a room in their house dedicated to medals and awards that you received growing up.” Cal points out

“Well it’s my only Olympic gold medal.”

“My bad I forgot about the bronze on uneven bars.”

“I could be better. Have you met the American team their incredible.” I look down at my callused hands and think about the eighteen years of my life that have been dedicated to the sport. My twenty first birthday was spent at the gym training for nationals. I mean I pushed so much of my life off just to compete. Yet I still feel unaccomplished. Like I could do more and to others it sounds stupid but for me it’s just the life of a gymnast.

“Anyway I’m gonna go lie down. I didn’t realize how out of it I am till now.” I stand up off the couch and Callum looks worried.

“Guys set up the video I’ll be back.” He follows me into his room and I take a seat on the bed.

“What’s going on? You haven’t missed a day of training since you had the flu three months ago.” He asks and I shrug while rubbing on my right ring finger that has the Olympic Rings tattooed onto it.

“I’m ruining our relationship. I mean we barely ever see each other and when we do, the guys are around, or we’re both out of it and tired. I mean we haven’t spent time watching Netflix and relaxing together in months. I mean we maybe get to call each other every week or so.” I shrug before looking up and facing the reality.

“I mean you started dating me right after the Olympics and I’m not the same person I was back then. I had about three or four months of normalcy where I just hung out and relaxed and only went to the gym twice a week. Now it’s a year later and I’m training hard for nationals and to make the national team for worlds. This is the real me and the real me is fucking up everything. I mean did you not notice my lack of presence at the party last week or that I wasn’t there for the Sidemen football match? I mean I missed a lot and I feel like you don’t care. Like it doesn’t matter.”

“You think I don’t care or notice that you aren’t there? Cause I do and yeah it hurts but I don’t say anything because you’re pursing a dream and I’m not gonna stop you from doing that. You’re incredible and I’m not gonna stop you from reaching you’re highest potential. I don’t wanna make you feel bad so I don’t say anything. And yeah maybe you and I don’t talk much and this is the first time I’ve seen you in person in a month, but I still love you. I mean what do you want me to say? That I mad? Cause I am, but I’m not gonna do that to you. I mean it sucks when all the others guys have their girlfriends around and we all go out to eat and mine isn’t there because she’s training. Yeah it sucks but I don’t say anything because I’m not gonna stop you from doing you’re best. Im not gonna make you feel like shit for doing you. So don’t come in here and act like I don’t try because it’s you that doesn’t have time for me.” He shouts back and I realize that I was… no I am… the problem.

“So what does this mean?” I ask and he places his hands over his face before looking up at the ceiling and back down to me.

“I think it means we’re done.” He admits and I nod before picking up my bag and walking out of the room.

“Wait where you going?” Harry asks and I just ignore him. Once I’m out of the flat I just run. I run to my car and I drive straight to the gym.

“Why are you back here? I’m not letting you train upset.”

“I’m here because he fucking broke up with me.” I finally respond after a few moments of silence.

“And I’m ready to train.”

–//–

“You look so tense. Like go get a drink.” My teammate jokes and actually consider that as an option.

“I mean Cal and I split like a month ago and I have been quite lonely. I mean I haven’t slept with a guy in so long. I mean it’s hard to have a sex life when I’m always here.”

“Well there’s always the boys.” She motions over to the chalk bin where some of the Olympic guys are standing.

“Mel really?” I fidget with my grips and she nods.

“I mean I had that fling with Luke.” She smiles and I look over at them.

“They’re just as horny as we are. Like I’m just about to for one of them at this point.” She shrugs and I nod.s

“Let them know you’re single sweetie.” I wink before grabbing her hand and pulling her over to the chalk bin by the bars.

“Move it or lose it boys.” I smirk before looking up. “Or do something with it.”

“Oh is that right?” Ash grabs my waist and I nod. He pulls me closer to his body and leans down to kiss behind my ear. “I’ll see you by my car.” He leaves another kiss on my neck before looking around.

“I’m sorry do you guys need some space?” I hear my coach shout and I quickly pull away from Ash and turn around to face my trainer who is holding up an elastic band.

“I thought we were doing bars.” I raise an eyebrow and he holds up another elastic band.

“You and Ash here and gonna be having fun today and not the fun you wanted to have.” He throws the bands at us and I contemplate throwing myself on the ground and crying.

“Feet together and up the rope. Come on you two, now you’re gonna do that ten times each and once you’re done do it another ten times.” He shouts and Ash looks at me while smirking.

“Good I’ll get to see your cute ass climb up the rope.”

“Not gonna be cute when he makes us do even worse things. Last time he caught me kissing my boyfriend I was sixteen and he made me do twenty times up the rope, a five mile run, and thirty standing tucks before making me call the boy and tell him he would ruin my future and I couldn’t date him.”

“Wait really?”

“Yeah and he only let me date after I won gold on beam. Now he’s pissed because of you because he thinks you’re gonna ruin my chance at gold again.” I explain while tying my ankles together.

“What about my chance at gold?” He jokes and I grab onto the rope. “My bad I mean my chance at gold for the third worlds in a row.” He reaches over and tries to tip me over before climbing up the rope.

“So Im gonna go take an ice bath. I gotta take an ice bath.” I limp over to ice baths as Asher follows me.

My trainer had us do five miles, and then it got worse. Back tuck followed by a burpee. Twenty sets of five followed by chin ups on the high bar and then he made me continue running. Then he made me do my floor routine full out four times in row. The worst was that Ash was allowed to stop after the running and he sat back cheering me on while laughing.

“Can you possibly carry me?” I ask and he grabs onto my waist and throws me over his shoulder. Once we get to the ice baths he puts me down and I slowly climb into the freezing water.

“How’s the boyfriend been?” He asks and I can’t help but laugh.

“I wouldn’t have flirted with you if he was still my boyfriend.” I explain and he leans against the edge of the tub next to me.

“Why’d you split?”

“I don’t have time for a relationship when I’m here being an Olympic gymnast.”

“Oh trust me… There’s time. That one hour break we get between twelve and one for lunch and then the break we have from three to seven and again when you have a break at nine after you’re done teaching the little ones. Trust me there’s time, but unless both people are trying, you won’t feel like there is time.”

“And weekends at night. You’re boyfriend sounds like an ass.” He laughs and I shake my head.

“No I’m the ass. I didn’t try either. I wanted him to try and I couldn’t expect him to.” I look up at him and he shakes his head before standing up.

“I can’t sleep with you. I’m sorry but I was flirting back because I’m an ass but you love another guy. Like come on you still love Cal.” He grabs my hand and pulls me up out of the ice bath.

“You should stretch, take a shower, and go get your boyfriend back.”

“No I don’t love him anymore, it’s fine.” I try to dissuade him and he smiles softly.

“Can’t do that to you. I mean you’re on my Olympic team.” He laughs and I cross my arms over my chest.

“Okay, well thanks Asher.”

—-

“Hey Harry, is Callum home? I gotta talk to him.”

“Oh, what’re you doing here?” He hugs me before pulling me inside and pointing to the kitchen.

“Wait before I go, is he seeing someone new?” I ask and he shakes his head.

“You’re good.” He laughs while motioning for me to follow him inside.

“Callum? Can we talk?” I ask and he looks up before nodding and motioning for him to follow me.

“Mind me asking why you’re here?” He asks while shutting the door behind us.

“Cause I got to practice and for the first time since I was sixteen I got fully punished. I had to climb the rope with just my upper body twenty times and then ran five miles. Then did so many back tucks into burpees that I almost passed out and it didn’t stop there. I had to do chin ups and handstands and all that other shit before dying and doing my floor routine fully out.”

“The last time that happened I got caught having my first kiss outside. It was my first boyfriend and it was so worth the pain I endured after. However, today wasn’t the same because I got caught flirting with another guy who then turned me down because he told me I’m still in love with you. And he’s right, I am still in love with you, but he also made a really good point and I want you to listen.” I place my bag down and he motions for me to continue.

“He mentioned that I do have enough time for us. He pointed out that there is enough time and I think I messed up before and yeah I do want to get back together but please just tell me if I’m already overstepping my boundaries. I mean I’ll just go now if you don’t want to get back together.”

“Don’t think that, please don’t think that. Yes I want to get back together and yes I’ll find a way to work this out so please don’t cry.” He pulls me into his arms and I wrap my arms around his waist.

“Missed you shorty.” He pulls away and brushes my hair away from my face before kissing me.

“I love you.” He picks me up and I place my face into his shoulder.

“I love you too.” I smile before leaving kisses on his cheek. “I love you so so much.” I laugh as I keep leaving kisses on his cheek and he smiles before turning his head and kissing me again.

“I’m not letting you go again.”

Whatever became of Senator Skywalker and Obi-Wan? They had plans in the Senate but did their ?bills?(I don't know really what word to use) on slavery go through? Or did more bad happen?

Cinching the bronze belt for Obi-Wan, Anakin smiled warmly at the redhead before leaning in and pressing a kiss to the others forehead. “Don’t you just look lovely.” He murmured, running his hands appreciatively over the others sides before pulling the former slave to him, nuzzling lightly at the feathery soft copper hair.

“Coming from a Senator, that is indeed high praise.” Obi-Wan teased lightly, comfortable in the circle of Anakin’s arms as they waited for Talla, Anakin’s assistant, to tell them it was time to leave. Sometimes he still woke in disbelief in the soft bed he now shared with Anakin, confused to where he was before he remembered he was free, free and on Coruscant in the arms of someone who utterly loved him for more then his body.

“I do have to thank you though, this tunic is really comfortable.” Obi-Wan hummed.

“And it compliments your eyes.” Anakin chuckled as Obi-Wan adjusted the high collar of it, giving the other a little squeeze. “I mostly picked it because it was soft and green.”

“I think its a forest green?”

“I have no idea, you’d have to ask Padme about that, she’s better about colors then I am.” Anakin shrugged a bit. “I honestly let her take over my wardrobe a few times so I know I’m wearing what’s ‘in’ fashion at the time.”

That got him a highly amused look from Obi-Wan. “Really now?”

Shrugging, Anakin let out a breath, blowing his curls out of his eyes. “What can I say, I’m not exactly interested in fashion but I have to present a kind of image since I’m a Senator. Its easier to ask a friend for help.”

“Asking for help is no shame.” Obi-Wan hummed, resting his head on the others shoulder and sighing contently. “You smell good…” He murmured as Anakin teased his lower spine gently with his fingertips. “Is that the soap I got you?”

“Mhmm. Its a good soap, I like it.” Anakin hummed, still running his fingertips over the others spine carefully, adoring how Obi-Wan melted into him.

Of course, all good things have to end eventually and his comm beeped with Talla’s confirmation that the Jedi guard was in place and the speeder ready to bring them to the Dome.

“We can continue this later, perhaps dinner at Yunda and some dancing? A trip to a botanical garden?” Anakin murmured as they pulled apart and headed for the doors.

Obi-Wan hummed before nodding, smiling softly at younger man. “That sounds lovely Senator Skywalker.”

“Cheeky.” Anakin grinned and offered his arm to the other as Knight Eerin joined them at the door as their escort.

His only response was a wink.

()()()

“And with overwhelming support, the progressive bill of Senator Skywalker passes into the Senate’s laws. With this bill, Slavery will actively be sought and punished inside Republic borders and anyone discovered with slaves or allowing such a thing in their borders will face hefty fines and embargoes as planetary systems with private persons facing jail or fines.”

Anakin allowed himself to close his eyes, in silent victory as there were roars all over the Senate.

Both those who opposed and those who supported.

But that didn’t matter.

What mattered was that his bill had gone through.

He opened his eyes and meet Obi-Wan’s eyes behind him, something warm and glowing spreading inside his chest as he watched the others proud eyes.

‘We are the change we wish to see.’

He turned and moved to Obi-Wan, feeling the eyes of the Senate on him but he was used to being watched, he was used to being in the eyes of the media and the Senate.

So he grasped Obi-Wan’s hands and raised them to his lips, pressing a soft kiss to the back of them before smiling warmly to the other man who blinked curiously at him, his head tilted with his copper hair tied into a little bun in the back of his neck. “Anakin?” He whispered, eyes going wide when the other slid down on his knees in front of him, the senatorial robe pooling on the floor on the pod.

“Obi-Wan marry me?” Anakin asked, holding onto those pale graceful hands, the roar of the senate a faint thing in the back of his mind.

The only voice he cared to hear that moment was Obi-Wan’s.

“…Yes!” Obi-Wan jerked Anakin back on his feet and into a desperate kiss, the others hands cupping the tanned cheeks of Anakin in a deep and needy grasp as lights flashed like blinking star lights.

“Well, its a memorable Senate hearing at least.” Padme mused in amusement, arms crossed over her chest. “I don’t think anyone’s ever passed a bill AND proposed to someone in the Senate before.”

that girl lyon signed isn’t half bad

anonymous asked:

Have you ever thought about JJbek

Yes

I don’t know if this was an implicit request for JJbek headcanons, anyway I did it :

  • JJ secretly pining for Otabek since the times he trained in Canada.
  • And dying a bit inside each time his attempts at getting closer to Otabek are met with the Kazakh’s cold rejection.
  • He considers him one of his most valuable opponents since Otabek beat him at last year’s world championship, and is actually impressed by his performance at the GPF, which worsen his anxiety and lead him to the attack we know
  • After that, he’s sure he lost any chances to get noticed positively by Otabek. He felt a bit annoyed he wasn’t with Otabek in any of the qualifying competitions, and was happy he made it trough the final. Only to give him this disastrous performance. 
  • Actually, Otabek started to notice him at this moment. He always found the canadian annoying, too loud, thinking he was mocking him (”always the odd one, huh ?”(which to my opinion was just JJ being bad at communication)). But when he sees him fucks up that bad under anxiety, and then still managing to smile for his fans, he actually start to see him in a different light.
  • JJ hurting when he sees Otabek smiling for Yurio, and being friend with him, feeling even more like he’s not on the same level than them, as he sees them as his biggest competitors.
  • JJ feeling bad for getting the bronze medal and feeling that Otabek deserved it more. He would want to give it to Otabek, but the other refuse, saying they both gave their everything. He still appreciate the gesture and it’s an other point for JJ.
  • As he’s talking with Yurio and the blond start trash-talking about JJ. Otabek stays silent, and finally replies with “I like him”. Yurio feels betrayed but when he realizes Beka is serious and that he doesn’t really want to loose his only friend over something like that
  • So he starts doing the wingman (with lots of grunting and insults) for Otabek
  • Since Beka hates SNS, it’s Yurio who stalk JJ’s social medias and give infos to Beka. Like when he broke with his girlfriend
  • It’s actually what makes Beka thinks he should try to make the first move. But he’s actually pretty uncomfortable with that .So Yuri, exceeded, goes to see JJ. “Hey Shithead !” “what ?” “you’re single right ?” “You’re trying to clash me Yuri-chan ?” “Nah, I’m trying to find a boyfriend to my best friend right here” *points at Otabek panicking* “Wait what ?” “i’ll let him explain to you” *pushes Otabek in front of JJ*
  • Otabek finally confesses his feelings for JJ. Now it’s JJ’s turns to get as red as his national flag.
  • And now they’re dating
  • SO
  • JJ calls Beka “nounours” (childish way to say “ours” in french, sometimes used for a pet name). Beka never calls JJ “JJ”, only “Jean-Jacques”
  • You can bet JJ tried to call him “Ota” at first, until Otabek told him not to do it.
  • JJ is proud of him and will takes a lot of selfies, often joking on how they’re the “undercut couple”
  • Beka is really discreet about their relationship. Not JJ.
  • They’re actually pretty touchy with each other, like JJ will put his arm on Otabek’s shoulder, or both his arms around his waist, or they’ll just hug a lot. They kiss less often though
  • JJ likes being taller, Otabek doesn’t really care.
  • JJ actually manages to make Otabek laugh. Otabek likes JJ’s energy. JJ likes Otabek’s calm and quietness. He needs it most of the time.
  • JJ would drag Otabek around Montreal showing him every places, and would take him to skate on frozen lakes. 
  • JJ learns to knit with Beka, Beka finally accepts to make a few SNS accounts and download the app. Even though he only follow two people on each : JJ and Yurio
  • They like to sleep with each other under warm blankets during winter.

That’s all I have so far, hope you like it ~

Beauty Survey

Because I want to hear about the products you love, and because you’re probably looking to procrastinate anyway, I made you guys a beauty questionnaire! Tag #frenemybeautysurvey so I can see your answers!

1) What are the 5 products you would take with you on a desert island?
Not Your Mother’s Knotty to Nice Detangler, Maybelline The Rocket Volume Mascara, EOS Coconut Milk Lip Balm, Tweezerman Tweezers, and probably a Venus Gilette.

2) What are the 3 products you would splurge on if somebody gave you a giant gift card to Sephora?
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, Glam Glow Mud Mask, and a foundation brush from Marc Jacobs

3) What’s the beauty product you are most afraid of using?
I tried to put on false eyelashes and was afraid the glue would fall in my eye and I didn’t like putting the tweezers near my eyes so I totally stopped.

4) What’s the lipstick that makes you feel the most powerful?
Duh, MAC Diva with MAC Nightmoth

5) What’s your every day makeup routine?
Makeup Forever HD Foundation in Sand, NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla for under the eyes, NARS Blush in Deep Throat, Anastasia Brow Wiz, NARS Laguna bronzer to deepen my eye crease, Elf Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, Covergirl Clump Crusher, and whatever lip color I feel like.

6) Top 3 drugstore finds you cannot live without?
Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice or Divine Wine, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, and Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner.

7) Top 3 higher end finds that were actually worth the splurge?
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish, and Makeup Forever Aqua Brow.

8) What’s your nighttime skincare routine?
Garnier Cleansing Oil to remove makeup, Philosophy Purity Cleanser, possibly a Freeman’s Charcoal and Black Sugar Face Mask, First Aid Beauty Repair Cream, pimple cream from Neutrogena, and Origins Ginzing Eye Cream.

9) Products you keep buying even though you have too many?
Brow products and lipsticks

10) Eyeshadow colors you gravitate towards? If you could only keep one eyeshadow palette, which one would you keep?
Shimmery warm Coppers, matte browns that are warm or cool, and rose golds. And the Naked 3 Palette.

11)What’s the one makeup brush in your collection that you would keep if you had to get rid of the rest?
The Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

12) What’s the one product you hate putting on?
I fucking hate putting on mascara because I get it all over the place and then I end up smearing it everywhere.

13) Best makeup tip you love telling other people about?
Putting your undereye concealer in an upside down triangle shape, blending it with your ring finger, and then immediately applying powder under the area makes such a damn difference.

14) Is there a product you started using recently that you can’t believe you didn’t use before?
I just started using translucent powder on my t-zone because I was so lazy, and now I can’t believe I didn’t do it every time I go out for a whole night.

15) Best Beauty Advice?
Wear as much makeup as you like, find a lipstick you love, and don’t be afraid to sometimes accentuate both your eyes and your lips

2012 Favorites!

This year certainly was the year that I tried and purchased the most makeup products I ever have in the past and I grew to love so many. Below are my stand out products that I honestly don’t think I can live without anymore!

  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 

This palette is perfect for everyday looks but has dark shades to use when you want to intensify a look for going out at night. The pigmentation is incredible on all shades. My most used eyeshadows are Bootycall, Snakebite, Tease and Busted

  • Real Techniques Brushes (Buffing Brush, Countour Brush & Blush Brush)

So soft, so affordable and so easy to clean! I’ve only trie the BH Cosmetics brushes before these but these Real Techniques ones are the best I’ve ever tried and I don’t feel the need to buy any other ones. They haven’t shed one hair since I’ve had them and they dry in a matter of hours after washing them.

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rose Velvet

The best lipstick to wear everyday. I wore it to class for a month straight because it’s so easy and it was the perfect shade to tie my whole look together. 

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze

I went insane when these color tattoos came out and wanted to buy almost all of them! I have 5 of them but I kept reaching for Bad to the Bronze the most often because the color is beautiful and whenever I didn’t feel like doing a whole eyeshadow look, I would just use this and I was set.

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed

This is one of those blushes you just don’t have to think about, you just pop it on and it gives you the most natural dusty rose color on your cheeks. It’s a matte finish which I prefer and it’s the blush I reached for almost every day since I bought it.

  • Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturising & Brightening Cream

You can check out a review on this here but it’s just hands down the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. Enough said.

  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Light

I don’t really get blemishes and when I do, foundation covers them up enough so I use this concealer for my under eye area. It makes a world of a difference and I instantly look more awake and radiant.

  • NARS Laguna Brozer

I have a really round face and chubby cheeks so I love using this product to contour and slim my face down. It’s the perfect shade for me; not too orange and not too muddy. 

  • Dior Amber Diamond

This is probably the most luxurios product I own and it lives up to the hype. I use this on the top of my cheekbones to add a glow to my face and it produces the most beautiful sheen. I’ve loved using this during the winter to keep my face from looking dull.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in 60 Natural Beige

The perfect foundation for dry skin because it doesn’t look cakey and it blends beautifully. It has a dewy finish and I’m already on my second bottle!
