Stop Doing It For Him

Why is it that women always act as though they have to change themselves for a man. I see it a lot in college and it’s crazy. I am single but I have always felt like you should never have to change for someone. These guys are not changing so why do we. If you have not noticed yet from most of my posts, I am all for girl power! (#girlsforever) I like to date guys though, not girls. I felt like I should’ve made that clear before making that hashtag. (lol)

When I hear guys say that they like girls that are natural, I just wanna tell them to “shut up and mind your own business”! They don’t know what they are talking about. I feel as though if you don’t know anything about makeup then you have absolutely no business telling someone else that they should stop wearing it. Girls, do you and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Love The Skin You Are In

Body positivity is so important to everyone. It took me a while and I still deal with it as for everyone else. We all at some point probably hate how we look and feel to others. For me, being over weight really took a toll on me in high school and it still do. I always hated that I was over weight. I would try dieting but it just did not work out for me. I still have those days but I manage when I write about. You have to learn to love yourself because you are the only one that matters right now. Other than family, you need to worry about yourself. Being in college, you would think that you left all the negative impact of what others say about you in high School but no! I found out that it carries on and will continue to carry on until you stop letting people get to. They don’t matter!

Tips For Girls With Glasses

I have four other sisters, not including myself that wears glasses. Over the time I have found certain things that can help them when applying their makeup. All but one of my sisters wears makeup. It is my mission to get the last one into makeup, even if it is the last thing I do.

  • Glasses Marks On Nose-( I guess you get the marks above the nose when you wear glasses for too long. I could be wrong and If I am, please correct me. My sisters had that mark above their noses from their glasses and they could never get rid of them. You can always use a cream and cocoa butter that fades away dark marks. That is probably the best way but here is another when applying your makeup. Apply concealer to the area and then apply the foundation. You don’t even have to do your whole face. You can easily just cover that up really quick so that when you take your glasses off, no one will notice.)
  • Eyeliner-( If you love eyeliner and wear glasses but never wear it because you think no one will notice it then STOP! You can always notice eyeliner. Maybe you just have to go thicker with your eyeliner.)

Glasses are really cute and flashy. There is a reason why everyone tries to wear nerd glasses.

How To Organize Your Makeup Collection

There are tons of ways to organize your makeup to your liking. If you are like me and never organize then this will come in handy. I just recently started organizing my collection because I was always loosing certain items. I would be looking for a lip gloss and it would be in my makeup brushes. I would never keep my makeup organize and that is exactly why I keep everything neat now.

I like to organize my products by the products. I know it might sound confusing but it’s not. I put my foundations together. I put all my concealers together. I put all my eyeliners and lashes together so that I can find everything together. I also tried to organize by color but that was a mess. I could not find anything because I forgot how everything looked.

Organize to your liking but also try to organize so that you can find those hard products that you are always loosing. You do not want to find a pair of lashes in your concealer. (Lol)

Why I Picked College Over Beauty School

I have been wanting to be a makeup artist for the longest. I told myself that I was gonna go to beauty school and then continue to grow so I can do celebrity makeup. This why I did not go…

I don’t wanna do hair. For most makeup artist, you have to have a cosmetology license. I was fine with that until I saw that I was gonna have to do hair. (Umm what!) I suck at hair. I didn’t wanna learn it. You know the saying “don’t knock it until you try it” well that was not the case. I hate hair! That is why I cut mine. (haha) All I wanted was to do makeup. The whole point was that I was gonna wait a year to go to college so that I can go to beauty school. That was cut short. I said well I guess I am going to college then and I can just teach myself how to do makeup. My new plan was to be a freelance makeup artist and also go to school to pursue a career in the medical field. I am killing two birds with one stone now.

How To Save Money On Makeup

As someone who buys a lot of makeup, I am always trying to find the best deals and sales. There are websites like “ebates” which will give you money back for buying anything. I always go to “retailmenot” because they always have promocodes and coupons.

If you see something you like and it is too over priced for you, just look somewhere else. There is a ninety percent chance that you will find it on another website. For example places like “Morphe” and “Anastasia Beverly hills” may be too much for some people. All you have to do is go to places like “Sephora” or “Ulta” that have their same products in stock. They also have better deals.

Three Ways To Get Rid Of Those Bushes Lashes

  1. Comb Your Eyelashes-( I had to help my sister with this because she is scary about everything. If you have a lot of eyelashes and they are always getting on your nerves then you then to comb them. They are calling for your help.) eyelash brush
  2. Curl Your Lashes-( This would help keep them out of your eyes after you comb them. Just make sure you don’t clip your eyelid because those lash curlers are tricky. You can always ask for help.)eyelash curler
  3. Apply Mascara-( When you apply mascara, you are not only combing your lashes. They also look good after applying mascara. The mascara will dry so you won’t have to pick at your eyelashes so much.)mascara

Ideal First Date Makeup

There are so many ways to do your makeup for a date. Most girls go for a more natural look on their date. Others go for a more bold look. whatever you choose is up to you. I personally go for the natural look because I do not have time to keep touching up my makeup all day or night. I tend to worry about how my makeup looks so I would not want any problems on date number one. That is a big “NO”.

You don’t wanna throw a lot of foundation and concealer on and then contour for a date because it can go a whole other way. What if you think he is taking you to dinner but you both end up going to a baseball game. “That would be it for me”. I would probably walk out saying “do you have any ideal how long it took to do this look for you!”

What I am trying to say is less is more when you are trying to impress a guy. (LOL) Now, you don’t have to impress them if you don’t wanna. “Um excuse me Girl Power”. He should be trying to impress you but you get it!

Different Type Of Makeup Wearers

  • The Extra One-( The one who does not care about what anyone has to say. She wears a full face of makeup everyday because she can and because she is really good at it.)
  • The neutral One-( That one person who knows how to do makeup really well but her face never shows it. She wear her natural face because she is comfortable with it but don’t underestimate her.) *Thats Me*
  • The Quiet One-( She’s is really quiet but you just wanna ask her ” how did you do your makeup?” She won’t answer because she is nervous but she can beat a face!)
  • The Way Too Much One-( That one girl who does way too much to her face. She has every color on her eyes and lips but she don’t care. “This is America” and you can do whatever you want.)
  • The Perfect One-( That girl that just has the most professional looking makeup ever! You envy her, I envy her because we can’t do it.)

How To Avoid Haters

First thing to know is that you will always have haters. For some weird reason, they are everywhere. I never really understood how people can be so negative all the time but it happens. I have haters but I don’t act. You have to ignore them and keep doing what you are doing because they are always watching you. I think it’s creepy how someone can always look at you and then judge you. Like “boo”! They are curious about what you are doing and they want to ruin things for you by getting into your head. You just have to tune them out and keep being positive. Every time you move up, they are moving down.
