actually wearing no makeup

Things the signs remind me of

Aries: sloppy first kisses, bruised knees, moshpits, adrenaline rushes, dirty converse, staring at each other from across the room, midnight adventures, sex in a car, talking about heartbreak

Taurus: holding hands when it’s cold, music festivals, drinking herbal tea surrounded by scented candles, picking grass out of the ground, black coffee, museum dates, 50′s diners, new and soft bedsheets, flower crowns, falling in love with small towns

Gemini: mischievous eyes, parties in the basement, confused feelings, knee socks, excitement growing in the pit of your stomach, breaking into old buildings, skinning your knees, numb fingers, endless conversations, kissing someone in front of your ex

Cancer: rain on windows,wanting something more, midnight visits to the beach, feeling alone in a room full of people, old rock n roll, writing on the walls of school bathroom stalls, denying compliments, freckled cheeks, kissing someone first, finding a love letter/poem that was written to you

Leo: calling someone beautiful and actually meaning it, the courage of getting over your first heartbreak, sun kissed skin, getting your way, soft promises whispered in your ear, drunken laughter, looking in the mirror, falling in love with strangers, neon signs, feeling butterflies in your stomach

Virgo: winged eyeliner, helping someone in need, taking deep breaths of cold air, stacks of books, drunken kisses, strange addictions, being able to not wear makeup and actually feel good about yourself, dinner dates, retro theme, finding secret hideouts 

Libra: letting all of your opinions be known, old record players, bloody knuckles, doing illegal things with your friends, crushes that don’t really mean anything, crashing at motels with your lover, champagne, smiling into kisses, the feeling of smoke filling your lungs, heart shaped lollipops 

Scorpio: sexual jokes, staring at someone you love and they stare back, feeling of skin on skin, chapped lips in the winter, playing murderer in the dark, the feeling of regret, leather anything, playing with Ouija boards, screaming until your lungs are about to burst, chipped nail polish 

Sagittarius: flirty conversations, running on a cold night, making decisions on instinct, breaking the rules, stilettos, laughing uncontrollably, falling in love with cities, the light in someone’s eyes, chokers, big brown eyes

Capricorn: rosy cheeks and nose on a cold winter day, fishnet stockings, looking out the window of a moving train, sharing your deepest secrets at 3am, pale veiny eyelids, wanting to run away with someone, needing alone time to energize, taking the back roads home, journals filled with writing 

Aquarius: skies full of stars, exotic eyes, leather jackets, tarot readers, finding something mysterious and not being able to stop thinking about it, kissing at red lights, being stuck in small towns, area 51, black and blued eyes, long nights spent playing video games

Pisces: cigarette smoke, feeling someone’s sadness, fingers tracing the inside of your thigh, Salem witches, saddened eyes, forbidden love, abandoned haunted houses, throwing knives, the feeling of knowing something no one else knows, other worldly looks

  • Don’t mess with Alicia Keys. That’s a lesson Adam Levine apparently learned first hand.
  • In an interview with Howard Stern, after being pushed by Stern to talk about Keys’ newfound love of not wearing makeup, Levine told a story in which he actually tried to call Keys out for wearing makeup on the set of the The Voice. Read more. (3/28/17, 10:22 AM)

Beauty Myths

I’m going to tell you all something.

Do you know all those posts that say “YOU ARE VALID” or “YOURE NEVER TOO YOUNG TO KNOW” or “YOURE NOT CONFUSED, YOU KNOW YOURSELF”?

Listen to them. Reblog them. Make them.

Because those posts mean more than what it looks like.

I kind of came out to my mom. She said I was too young, and I was confused and that I couldn’t be transgender because i used to love dresses and i wear makeup.

Actually I loved those dresses because people told me I had to wear them and I wore makeup to outline my cheekbones and jaw to make me look more like a boy/genderless.

What was even worse was that I told my mom after she got upset that “oh dont worry just a little thought im a girl and always will be”

She said of course, and was a little happier i guess. But i felt like i had betrayed myself.

It felt horrible.

I told my friend/afterschool teacher about it. My friend said I was valid. That I’m never too young. That im not confused, and the only person that can influence me was myself.

Im still hurt. But my friend helped me a bit. I might lie more about my gender to anyone, say that im a girl when really im only 1/10 of the time.

So you know those posts?

At least look at them. Like them. Reblog them. write them.

Because that can make even a questioning person feel safe.

I can talk to a lot of people about superficial things, but you’re the person I think of when I want to talk about something interesting or important to me.

And I think that says a lot about us.
And about how much I want you to be in my life.

(Forever.)

A little confidence without makeup or filters🌻

I’ve come across a lot of rude and ignorant people in my life.
“Wow, you actually look pretty if you wear makeup!”
“Without makeup, you just don’t look that good.”
“We’re going out, you need to put on makeup.”
“You know, people would probably think you were attractive if you wore makeup.”
These are just some of the phrases that I’ve heard throughout my life, and I know many people have heard this too. Society has put these unrealistic beauty standards on young boys and girls and it’s horrible. Your natural face is GORGEOUS! Your imperfections are perfection! Everyone is beautiful, with or without makeup. This world needs a little more confidence, in spite of negative people who want to tear you down. If any of you lovely people want to tag your natural selfies to #naturalandconfident I’ll reblog them all.☀️

Clear Skin Guide

If you’re suffering from acne and you want clear skin, just know that it’s not an overnight thing and it will take some time. It might even take up to three weeks for you to see any kind of drastic differences. You have to be true to yourself and dedicated as well. Below are some tips that I’ve combined from personal experiences as well as some tips from my dermatologist.

1. Organic products
I have been doing heaps of research and I’ve found that using organic cleansers and cosmetic products are best for your face. You don’t want your skin to get used to artificial chemicals, because it will only make it worse before it gets better. Things like ‘Proactiv’ and ‘Clean&Clear’ may only work for a small period of time. They’re not made for long-term acne. So if you’ve tried just about every product and acne solution, I suggest finding an organic cleanser that fits your skin type. You want to find a natural product to use that will help your skin do its thing for the long run rather then one that will only help it temporarily. So, investing in decent, organic products will do your skin some good.

2.  Create a routine
You want your skin to be comfortable with what you’re doing, so come up with a simple every day routine that you can follow. My personal facial routine is to wash and moisturize night and day! As well as facial masks  once a week. Create a routine that works with you. Remember: you want your skin to heal itself so conjuring up a difficult routine to follow every night isn’t the best idea. You want all the dirt and mess off your face so you have a clean, and moisturized canvas.

3. Watch what you eat!
You all probably ALWAYS here that the food you eat plays a major part in your skin and it’s 100% true. It’s proved that a plant based diet is the best remedy for your skin. But if you simply can’t commit to that, like me, try your best to eliminate the bad foods. I encourage you to eat raw, whole, real foods. Get rid of the junk and processed food, fill your body with the real stuff. That being fruits, veggies, lean meats (if you eat meat. for beef, try to get grass fed beef), etc. Watch your dairy intake! There’s so many studies that link dairy to one of the main issues with acne. There’s so many hormones in milk, cheese, things like that and it’s just disrupting your own hormones- especially for teenagers! So try your hardest to limit your dairy intake. I personally, have cut it off nearly completely and I see a tremendous difference in my skin.

4. No makeup
Don’t call me crazy ahaha but not wearing makeup can actually twist your life around- for the better. Pimples are caused by clogged pores and wearing face makeup will only clog them even more. If you NEED to wear face makeup, I suggest Smashbox’s Pore Minimizing Primer to go underneath your makeup - if you do choose to wear it. But, if you’re serious about clearing your face up, limit your face makeup use. Or, find a foundation or BB/CC cream that is natural and organic! Mascara and lip liners and things like that are completely okay- I’m saying foundations, concealer, blush, etc.

5. Exercise
I don’t think I can express to you guys enough the importance of exercising! It does so many positive things to your body, i can’t even begin to name them all to you. Try to get a regular workout in your days because the sweat helps your skin clear up and unclog pores as well in a NATURAL way! Also- please don’t exercise with makeup on your face! It’s so so bad for you and it makes everything a million times worse, I promise. In school, I was the only girl that would clean off my face before we worked out (in gym class) and everyone looked at me like I was a weirdo ahaha but I promise it’ll help you in the long run.

6. !!!!Water!!!!
I’m sure you hear this a million times a day, but it’s essential. Drinking 2-3 liters or up to a gallon a day is best for your skin. It can change it in so many ways, positively. If you forget to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, the best two tricks I use are either keeping a bottle of water with me always or setting an alarm on my phone every 30 minutes to remind myself to drink water. ALWAYS DRINK WATER!

Quick Little Tips
• Change your pillow case once a week
• Keep your hair and hands off your face!
• Do not pick at your pimples(it leads to scars)
• ALWAYS wash your face in the morning and at night.

Body Acne Tips:
• A healthy lifestyle is recommended as said above.
• Certain body lotions and washes and soaps tend to be irritating to the skin so if this is an issue to you, use natural and organic products or just water.
• Exfoliate. If your skin is super duper sensitive I don’t recommend exfoliating. If you are interested in exfoliating, the Vanity Planet manual exfoliator is gentle on your skin. (Face and body!)
• Limit the hot showers. The heated water dries out your skin which will then lead your skin to overproduce oil, causing acne. Stick to the cooler showers.
• Tea Tree oil is a blessing. I use it on my face and it’s changed my complexion tremendously. It’s also very natural!
• Your laundry detergent may be an issue! Laundry detergent can irritate your skin or you can have an allergic reaction to it. If that’s the case, switch to a detergent that’s free of fragrances.
•Your skin can also become irritated from your choice of shampoo/conditioner so do some research on the products you use, or just keep your hair off your body whenever washing.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask me!

I really did love Wonder Woman, but I can’t wait for the day when a movie won’t be considered revolutionary or wildly feminist just for centering on a female superhero, and we can actually discuss and change issues like how Diana was visibly wearing makeup in every single scene? How her beauty is commented on almost as much as, if not more than, her powers and abilities? How she literally fought a war in not just the most unreasonable miniskirt, heels, and corset ever, but also the most sexualized? How her lack of knowledge about the human world is used to put her into several precariously sexual situations? How in the end, despite that it is her movie and her story, the man is what unlocks her power? Wonder Woman was a welcome gift, but I want the rest of this decade and the next to be spent building and improving on it, not copying it.

@bornwithgasolineheart is a menace. Look out for under the cut!


Howard nearly threw his sandwich when he saw Natasha carefully painting Tony’s lips red. “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! THAT ISN’T ALLOWED.”

“Daddy!” Tony complained. “We’re just playing!”

Natasha turned slowly, face a blank mask. “Yeah. We’re just playing.”

Howard got the uncomfortable feeling that this woman would make him suffer if he disagreed with her. He turned a glare on Steve. “And where were you when they decided–” He stopped. “…Steve, that’s definitely not your color.”
