I Have Been Blogging For A 11 Months Today!

Wow! I started blogging January 3,2018. I still think it’s crazy that I stuck with this because I am so quick to give up. The exact days are, 334 days. That is a lot. I only have about 220 something post because most of it was me thinking of what to do, being sick and so much more. I am really proud of myself. I felt kind of slow because I thought since today was the third and I started blogging on January the third, that it was a full year. That just means that I will have to make another post next month which will be a full year for me. 

Tips For New Bloggers

Hi guys! I get a lot of questions about starting to blog and how to set up a blog and so on. So lets start talking!

How To Blog

-You should first think about what you want to blog about. It can be really hard to think of topics to write about. I have writers block every time I blog. Everyone has something to blog about or you wouldn’t have wanted to start blogging. It is about writing about what you feel or what you like. 

Picking A Theme

-I have had many questions about what theme I have used and so on. The theme that I am currently using is called “Heart And Style”. I love this theme because it gives me a more professional looking site. There are a lot of free themes and there a many that you can purchase. You can also get them free if you buy a plan which is what I did. Choosing themes can be tricky because you want your blog to be perfect. You may have to play around for a while to get the one that make you go “Now that’s it!”. It takes time to get your blog ready. It took me about one to two weeks to pick a theme because I kept changing. 

Just do what feels good to you. I use to look up questions about how to start blogging and what to do for so long that I just stopped. There are so many ways to blog. Everyone has a different way of blogging. You just have to find what fits for you and start writing.

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!

What Is The Purpose Of Contouring?

Contouring is such a big deal in makeup because it brings out your features. Plus you can make new ones. (lol) When you see people contouring their jaws and noses, it brings that specific feature out more. I love contouring. Many people do the full contour which is under the eyes, nose, cheek bones, neck and so on. That is too much for me, just because I am in college and I don’t need all of that unless its a weekend. I don’t do the neck contour though. I haven’t tried it yet because I feel like its too much and I get hot really fast. Just remember that after you contour, you have to bake. You do not to walk around with a melting face. 🙂

 

 

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.

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!

*Eyebrow Alert*!!

I had to post this because I have been seeing this problem for so long. Being in college, you see it all. From really thick brows to no brows. From over drawn eyebrows to not drawn enough. Trends nowadays are making everyone wanna hop along for the ride and sometimes its fun but most times it just gets annoying. Eyebrows will forever be a trend because they are always changing. With that being said, I am about to about dark brows.

First thing is first, your brows should never be darker than your natural hair color. If you are a blonde or like a red head then you don’t have to read this. (lol) I am not judging anyone when I say this but super dark eyebrows looks really weird if your hair is not that color. When I was getting into makeup and didn’t really know what to do, I use to fill my eyebrows with a black pencil. I had red hair at the time so that was a definitely no!

I feel like I am pretty basic so I go for the light brown to dark brown eyebrows. The color fits my face and If I go darker, it just starts to look weird.

Red vs Red

I have been having a hard time trying to wear red lipstick. I have red hair and because of that, I think it looks weird to pair it with red lipstick. I have always felt like you should never wear the same lipstick as the color of your hair. “Unless it’s pink”

I am gonna have to stop with the negativity and just go for it. Might not be today, might not be tomorrow but it will happen. (Lol)

 

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.
