Feel amazing without makeup!

I know that all of you girls out there want to look brighter and more natural rather than packing on tons of makeup. I came up with a few tips that most of you have probably heard before but I hope they help!

  • Always brush your eyebrows! know that a lot of people just leave their eyebrows the ways they are or fill them in but brushing them makes them look much better and cleaner. Brow gel works great but since this post concludes makeup, any comb will work.
  • Take care of your lips. Make sure that you keep your lips soft and prevent them from looking chapped. Yes, all of us have those days when we have super dry lips, but a very quick and easy way to help this problem, is to exfoliate. This process only takes a few mintes: Mix honey, olive oil, and sugar in a small container and work it into your lips to exfoliate. It is super duper easy to make and use. Plus, it's all natural!
  • Curl your eyelashes. Curling your eyelashes not only makes your lashes look longer and more beautiful, but it also makes you look more awake. It is a great was to make your eyes pop with no makeup.
  • Keep your teeth clean and white. This doesn't have much to do with your face, but having clean teeth just makes everyone's complexion look much better! There are those nights, when I can barely keep my eyes open and go straight to bed, but I always try to brush my teeth as good as I can in the morning. Personally, I don't use white strips to make my teeth whiter but a lot of people do and that might work for you. Just make sure that you brush and floss your teeth! (Haha, I sound like my dentist ) :D
  • This last tip applies to only some of you, but make sure that your face doesn't get too oily. Yes, my friends know how much I hate it when my face gets oily during the day with or without face makeup. As you most likely know, you can always blot your face with powder but again, since there is no makeup involved, you can used blotting sheets. You can find them at a lot of places but my favorite are Elf's blotting sheets. They work great and they are only $1! Making sure your face is oil free, just makes your face look cleaner and fresher.

I hope these tips helped you. I find them very helpful for myself and I hope it works for you!

Reviews for CG Natureluxe Silk Foundation and CG Lashblast Mascara

This is a reivew on the Covergirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation and the Covergirl Lashblast Mascara requested by Angela .

I am really happy with both of the products that I have purchased!
First off, is the Foundation.
I don't really have many problem areas on my skin, so I don't really need a full coverage foundation, which makes this foundation great for my skin. Also, my skin is super oily, and when I wear something on my face, it automatically makes it feel like it is dripping off by the first hour I wear it. Since this foundation is really light, it doesn't give me that feeling.

A bottle of 1 oz. is around $10. That is pretty expensive for a drugstore foundation but I think that it is worth it to give it a try. Also, I had heard so many great things of how it smells like fresh cucumbers but when I smelt mine, it didn't really smell like cucumbers. Sure, there were some hints of cucumber but it mostly smelled just different... there is really no way I can explain it but the smell is not bad or anything and I am fully okay with it.

The top photo is a picture of my hand with sharpey and the botton is the same photo with foundation over it. (This picture is to show the coverage)

Covergirl Lashblast Mascara:
I think that the pictures mostly are the review but I will still say what I like about this mascara. Honestly, there was nothing that disappointed me about this mascara. My favorite part about it is the brush! It has the most defined bristles I have ever seen. It defines your lashes while giving them volume and length without making any clumps.

Mean music video and pictures...

Okay I know I keep saying this over, and over, and over, but I am really sorry for not blogging. School is starting in less than a week and my sister and I are stressing over our summer projects and just everything going on. Anyways, a few days ago, I went to Angela's house and we ended up remaking the music video of the song "Mean" by Taylor Swift and putting our own twist on it... of course, it is nowhere as good as the original music video, but it still turned out pretty good!!

So here's some pictures of the making of the video and some random pictures of us :)

From left to right: Me, Kylie, Angela, Julia, and Katelyn
You might be wondering why everyone else is either wearing a t-shirt or something with spaghetti straps and I'm wearing a cardigan AND a scarf... lol I was trying to get more of a bohemian, country look but just mostly covering my outfit for the other scenes. Yes, I was frying under the sun.

Haha Angus acting all drunk :P

I'm not sure what the point of this picture is but Kylie is being drunk and Hannah looks like she is advertising beer? and I have no idea what grace is doing.
I just love the look on their faces :D

Lol saba looks cute with her sad face :)

Me and Julia!
