Wear it out!

Wear it out!
Have you ever saved an outfit for a special occasion so long that when you finally pulled it out it was out of style? Why do we save certain outfits and clothes for what we feel is a special occasion? How come we don’t classify every living day as a special occasion? Looking good boosts your self-esteem, so what are you saving your best stuff for? Wear clothes, make-up jewelry, shoes, underwear (matching of course) and fragrances that you love everyday. Don’t put off feeling good. Choose outfits that fit and flatter your body now, not the body you wish for. Show yourself some affection everyday. Stop putting off wearing an outfit tomorrow when you can wear it today. Pop the tags and put it on. Everyday is a special occasion. What are your thoughts?

Beauty on a Budget!

I LOVE beauty on a budget and things that I can do quick and in a hurry. My Favorite products right now are the following and all from the drug store. Also remember my rules, do not shop for cosmetics at the drug store unless they are buy one get one half off or Buy One Get One.

Mascara (priced around $6-$8)
Maybelline Lash Stylist in Very Black

The reason I love this product is because it combs through my lashes and makes them look nice and long. I apply 2 to 3 coats. So I dont have to always apply a set of false lashes.

Blush & Bronzer (priced around $4-$5)
Black Radiance Color & Shimmer for Face

Okay I loveeeee bronzers and I dont like to pay a lot of money for them. This is the one I am loving now. They come in several shades but the one I am wearing daily is Urban Chic. It's a duo compact with two colors. One is darker for a nice deep mauve color on the cheek/eye or lip it has a nice shimmer to hit that when it hits the light looks angelic on your face. The other color is a very light rose color that is beautiful for highlighting your cheek bones or the bridge of your nose or you can add to your eyes or the lips. Be careful with wearing this on the eye alone, as it will began to crease because of the natural oils one your eyelids. You will want to put a nice shadow on top of it and it will make the eyeshadow color really pop.

Eyeliner (priced around $2-$3)
WetNWild H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner

I Love this liner because it has a pointy pen like tip that allows me to apply the liner precisely on my top lip without ever messing up the line. I can make the line as thick or as thin as I want and I am always happy with the outcome. I generally in the summer tend to stay away from liner on my bottom lid because I rub my eyes a lot and I rub it off or runs really bad. So I am safe with this waterproof liner and I look great wearing it.

Lip Gloss (priced around $3)
Black Radiance Radiant Lip Gloss in Barely Nude

I love a nude lip. This gloss is GREAT. It goes on beautifully and looks
so very natural. It's also long lasting. I have so many of these glosses but this color is my favorite for the Spring/Summer Season.

Eyebrow Pencil/Lip Liner ($4-$5)
Maybelline New York Expert Eyes Eyebrow Pencil

Okay this is technically an eyebrow pencil but as with most makeup you can use it for multiple purposes ie: eyeliner and lip liner too. I love this brow pencil in Medium Brown to fill in my very thin brows and I love wearing it as a nude lip liner when wear my nude color lip gloss. You get two in a pack and they come in all colors black, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, auburn and blonde.

Eye Makeup Remover
Mary Kay Oil Free Makeup Remover

I have tried LOTS of makeup removers and a lot of them did not deliver as promised or they burned my eyes. Hands down the Mary Kay eye makeup remover does it for me!! I feel that the mascara literally melts off as I am applying the remover, even waterproof mascara. It comes off very quickly and my eyes dont hurt when I done.

Until next time this is your prescription for an Exquisite Look!
