Dramatic liner & nude lip

I have to take a moment and talk about some recent purchases. I would always pass by the small rack of Elf make-up at my local convenient store. “Everything 1$” would be the sign above it. I never really considered it since I always try to stray away from products that were too cheap. But I finally gave them a shot!

Their liquid liner that I am wearing in the pic I would rate, on a scale from 1- 10, a 7. For only being a buck it lasts almost all day. But sometimes it might give out on me and become flaky.

The lip color I am wearing is from BareMinerals. It was actually my moms and she decided she didn’t like it. Well I gave it a try and love it! It’s Pretty Amazing ( that’s the name of their make up line it’s in) and the lipgloss title is “free will”. I almost gave up on all lip glosses until I tried this one.

Highlighting & contouring

Hey y’all! Sorry I haven’t posted in weeks, school has been crazy. But I finally took the time to make a couple make-up tutorials:)

I just recently gotten into highlighting and contouring my face. All I use is the lightest shade of liquid concealer I have ( Maybelline instant age rewind) and my usual foundation in a slightly darker shade (also the Maybelline instant age rewind).

Step 1: I applied the concealer, as you can see in the pic. Sometimes depending in your face shape where you apply the highlighter will differ. Do some research to know where you should apply this.

Step 2. I applied the foundation to contour my face. Sorry if it’s a little difficult to see.

This honestly took me not even five minutes to do and it makes your face look flawless. As you can see my major flaw is my dark under eyes but they are virtually gone! Comment what you think=) ~Allison

Messy hair don’t care

Messy buns are so cute and have that effortless look. But they really aren’t all that effortless! My hair never stays in places and there’s pretty much nothing I can do to it besides straightening or curling. However, I finally found a great tutorial on pintrest for a messy bun.
