Make Up Tutorial : The Everyday Look

Hey! Today I am going to show y'all how I do an everyday make up look!

so first start out with liquid foundation. I am using Avon MagiX Cashmere

DO NOT FORGET THE SIDES OF YOUR FACE! Especially if you are going out with your hair up!

Put concealer in a triangle under your eyes to highlight your cheeks and get rid of dark circles. Also hide any blemishes.

I use concealer on my eye lid to give me a base and as a primer. (I am using Maybeline Mineral Power)

Next lightly dust your face with powder.(I like to use a large foundation brush) This is mainly to set your foundation. (I am using Avon Lasting)

 Apply blush lightly to the sides of your face and apples of your cheeks.

 This is optional but I like to use ELF High Definition to give me a more flawless look. I got this at Target for about $5 bucks.

 I will be using this color pallet from Wet and Wild!

Apply the light pink shade to your lid and brow bone.

Blend the taupe color into your crease

Line your top lid with a black eye pencil (this one is from Avon)

Curl your lashes!

Apply black mascara! I love Avon's Mega Lash! IT IS AMAZING! It gets every lash, doesn't clump all your lashes together and is just $10

Add a shimmery white to your tear duct areas and a very light bottom eye liner if you want your eyes to pop more!

And your finished! This is very natural but is light and elegant! Send me a picture if you try it out!!! What sort of make up tutorials would yall like to see? Thanks for reading!!!!

Emma In The Kitchen *WATCHOUT*

Today I was thinking about how lovely it would be to have a bowl of mashed potatoes... but honestly they are a lot of work. BUT we have some instant mashed potatoes WHICH I HATE. Anyway but this brand isn't too bad! And I thought if I put some effort into it I could even make them delicious! And I believe I have succeeded! So here is my recipe for 2 servings!

Garlic and Cheese Mashed Potatoes

What we will need!
saucepan and spoon
instant mashed potatoes (brand of your choice but I used Idahoan Premium Mashed Potatoes)
minced garlic
dried minced onions
shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper!

Now start off my looking at the package. However much butter it says to do double it (I used 6 TBS) and start melting that. While that is melting add a small spoonful of minced garlic and a large spoonful of dried minced onions. After the butter is melted and onion and garlic are mixed in well look at the package again! If the package says "1/4 cup of water and 3/4 cup of milk" Just add one cup on milk! Milk makes it taste better!!! Now leave that until it starts boiling! Then turn off the burner add a handful of shredded cheddar cheese and your instant mashed potatoes! (I used 1/2 a cup) Now stir and add salt and pepper to your liking!

This took me about 5 minutes and is so good! Tell me if you tried it! Enjoy!!!

starry thoughts

My swollen red eyes have given away my sadness from just finishing the book The Fault in Our Stars. This is the best most horrible book I have EVER read! *yes this book actually has a good bit of language and a small bit of sex! I would not recommend reading this if you are under the age of 15! I would not have read it if I had known but I had to finish it!*

I do have to say I love this book. Being able to see into the life of a cancer patient, that hates all the sympathy and cliche remarks people make on cancer. And how heroes aren't always the ones who have saved many lives but just has an ordinary one, impacting the people around them on there short time on this earth. Ever since I heard the quote "My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations" I have loved it. (Even tho I did not know it was in this book!) So now I know where it comes from and will try to restrain from crying every time I hear it!

I must add that I love books like these to remind me how precious life is. In the last year after losing my Grandfather and some friends I have tried to appreciate my family more. I know it's a very sad thought (and I am being extremely sappy OHMYGOODNESS) but what if I left angry at my little sister than didn't see her again. If I died I know she would feel terrible the rest of her life, and if she died I would probably consider myself a failure as a big sister and never forgive myself as long as I lived.

While walking through Hobby Lobby today I saw a picture that said

"because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing"

And it truly is. So many times I get down about what I don't have and never think about all the things I do! I am so selfish! God has blessed me with this extraordinary life and I need to use it to be an everyday, average, hero.

I'm pretty sure this is one of those times my thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations.

{I need to rant} Internet Pet Peeves AND AN ANNOUNCEMENT

Sooooo while cleaning my room at 12:28AM because I feel sick when I lie down (lovely acid problems *rolls eyes*) I started thinking of my long list of internet pet peeves and thought "why not share with the world?!" So here are my top internet pet peeves!
Abbreviated words OVERLOAD

I can't say I never type "LOL" "WRYD" or "BRB" but I'm talking about when people are like

"i went 2 the mal it waz awsom i luv time with u iz u buzy sunday" Like really please speak in English!

"I bet 99% of you won't repost this"

*me scrolling through instagram* "'I think Mattel should make a bald Barbie for cancer patience.... *awweeee that's so sweet*... I bet 99% of you won't repost." :I  Your so right! I hate being guilted into things. especially on the internet.


Okay sooooo I'm not one to brag but you have nooooo idea how many of these I have survived! Like I am practically invincible when it comes to these! But seriously! WHO BELIEVES THIS STUFF?!
1. I don't have it on my instagram where you can see where I live EVEN IF YOU FOLLOW ME.
2. I'm just gonna be honest I have never been threatened by a dead person...
3. How would they know if I didn't repost it?!

Struggles of a Teenage Girl

When I was younger I couldn't wait to be a teenager! I thought my life would be awesome, I would be cool, I would FEEL cool etc etc. buuuuttttttt the last 3 years have probably been the hardest! But it's coming around and I have found answers to some things I wish I had known at 13! So for any 13 yearolds please read caaauuusseee I wish I had someone to tell me this!

Be you! If someone doesn't like how you are he/she isn't worth being your friend!

Stop worrying about how you look!God thinks your perfect! Don't criticize his artwork!*TAKE IT EASY ON THE MAKEUP OHMYGOODNESS I WAS HORRIBLE AT MAKEUP UGGHHHH*

This is pretty self explanatory but when you start trying to fit it there seems to be less and less of God in your life.

Hope this helped someone! And remember
