My face is always much paler than my body and sometimes it’s necessary to darker my complexion to match. I thought I would show you a quick way to deepen your complexion to give the appearance of a Summer tan but with a natural finish! If you like to fake tan your body and not your face then this is also a great technique. Often using fake tan on your face can make it look very uneven and also cause breakouts, so I would recommend only using fake tan on your body and use makeup to deepen your face instead.

Holy shit! I was at Macy’s and I saw a cute Kate spade wallet that I wanted. So I quickly picked it up, tucked it behind my phone, and carried it around as if it was mine. As I picked up a few more items and made my way to the change room, I saw a woman sitting there with a few bags and her phone out. I was a bit sus of her, so I looked at her, pretended to wait for an attendant, looked around wondering where the attendant was, and then shrugged and walked in (I have a naturally innocent and clueless look according to my friends). While I was in there, I was quickly removing the lock when I heard someone talk on the phone saying “hey yeah go slower, move it slower, OK is she carrying it?”. I was freaking out in my head cause I quickly figured out that she was loss prevention and talking to someone on the floor. I kept listening and heard her say “she’s wearing gladiator shoes, look for her! Is she still carrying the blue dress. Wait a bit and go into the change room next to her” which made me realize that she wasn’t talking about me, but damn was I still scared. After I detagged, I decided to put the wallet in my bag and quickly get the hell out of there. As I left, I saw her looking down at her phone and talking on speaker. I couldn’t understand why she was doing that since any potential lifter (lol me) would be able to hear her, but I realized she may be receiving live video footage on her phone. I was so scared, but glad I made it out with the wallet. I also went to Ulta, and they were SOOO easy.

ok i’m going to make this v informative and detailed and i’ll tag it with #routines so you little babes can find this as you wish!
i start off by applying some moisturizer and sometimes the benefit porefessional face primer (i only use it if i’m going to be out aaaall day or for a special occasion), then i apply benefit’s boi-ing concealer using a lil concealer brush and i blend it in using gentle patting motions w my finger. after that, i get my foundation brush slightly damp and squeeze some tarte amazonian clay foundation onto the back of my hand and slap that stuff on my face (you only need a tiny bit, it’s like….so good)! then i move on to my brows (!!!), i pluck stray hairs if needed and then i brush benefit’s gimme brow eyebrow gel through my brows, i love it bc the brush is tiny so it allows you to really control where you put the product :) next, eyes!!! i pull out my urban decay naked 3 palette and apply burnout (a rose gold shimmery shade) all over my lids, sometimes i go in with trick (a gold shade) and layer a little bit of that on as well, then i get a little eyeshadow brush and apply dust (shimmery white/pink) in my inner corners (sometimes i skip the first two and just apply dust over my lid if i feel like it), then sometimes i get a liner brush, get it damp, and use mugshot (a warm light brown) and apply that on my top lash line. theeeen i just use an eyelash curler and benefit’s bad gal lash mascara. finally, i apply highlighter, i use benefit’s high beam liquid highlighter, i usually apply it on my nose, cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and brow bone. that’s my full face routine, but on casual days i use brow gel, concealer, and highlighter :)

hi i'm going to my first year of college soon and i was wondering what things in your opinion are must-haves for school?
Hi there! Good luck on your first year of college! I’m a third year now and college is really fun :)
For long days of classes I think having a good long wearing foundation is vital! Try some long wearing foundations like
Estee Lauder Double Wear (they make a light version w/ light to medium coverage)
Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hr Foundation
If you’re living in the dorms like I did you might want a BB Cream to throw on and walk to class. BB Creams are super easy to apply you can even use your hands and walk out the door. Try long wearing BB Creams like
Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combination Skin
Estee Lauder Double Wear Glow All Day BB Cream
Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer
I also love tinted lip balms for a day of classes! Easy to reapply during class, adds some color to the lips and moisturizes because sometimes classes can be super cold and dry your lips out! Try tinted lip balms like
Maybelline Baby Lips
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (fav!)
Maybelline Color Whispers
Revlon Lip Butters
Tarte Lip Surgence
You may also want to have a good touch up powder! Personally, I prefer pressed translucent powder as touch up powders because they add no coverage so it never looks cakey. Sometimes touching up with your normal pressed powder can look a little cakey. Try pressed translucent powders like
So I haven’t tried it or worn it yet. But I got it, and swatched it in the color Ivory. It's definitely LIGHTER than the lightest color of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation I use. It’s the same tone, but at least a full shade lighter. But it’s not AS light as the discontinued lightest shade of the Kat Von D tattoo lock it foundation. It’s also more yellow. The Kat Von D one was perfect for me. Perfect color, perfect undertone, perfect coverage. I’m so mad it’s discontinued. BUT if you are very pale like me, this foundation MAY BE LIGHT ENOUGH! :) I will review it on my channel when I’m no longer sick.
