Goodbye Summer!

Goodbye Summer

Bring on the sweater weather, the hot chocolate, and everything knit! This girl is ready for fall! I’m normally all about the warm rays of sun but we could really use a break from the heat here in Cali. And a little rain would be nice. Lol.

Let me know where you’re located and if you’re excited to leave summer behind! Tty soon!

I’m so happy to be getting back to making videos! Today I’m sharing a quick look at my trip to Platinum Lashes in Glendora, CA. Let me know if you have any additional questions about eyelash extensions after watching!

A Rainstorm for Butterflies

Butterfly Kisses A butterfly cannot fly in rain. Not only would the heavy drops knock the beautiful winged insect from the sky, the butterfly itself needs the warm rays of the sun to heat it’s flight muscles. But today is different. My sparkly butterflies are completely at ease amidst my water droplet nails.

I was inspired by the name of my new nail polish, Rainstorm by Sinful Colors. I’m loving the fantasy element of this post and hope you are too! More creative and whimsical posts to come!

Orange Lips Inspired by Megan Fox

Megan Fox Orange Lipstick Orange lips and bronzerMegan looks extra summerY with this shade on her lips! But orange lips are tricky. Like super tricky. Lol. I had to cover my natural lip color in order to make it work.

Orange gives you a bold pop without any of the harshness of a red. It’s a great way to soften a makeup look without having to compromise the intensity of your lipstick.

Everything you need to recreate this is listed below. And if you have naturally dark lips, apply a concealer to them first! Aside from that, just have fun with it!

Megan Fox Makeup Megan Fox inspired makeupGood morning fellow beauty bandits! I’m sure you’ve noticed the latest blog changes. We’ll be focusing on recreating the looks we love! Under the style thief tab you’ll find inspired outfit/style recreations and under the beauty bandit tab you’ll find posts like these that focus on recreating makeup, hair, or anything beauty related.

Today I’m sharing a beauty look inspired by Megan Fox! I went in to the eye doctor for my yearly eye exam and decided to try out some fun colored contacts. I also remembered that Megan Fox’s new movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, just came out so it seemed only natural to let myself be inspired by her this week.

My biggest tip for channeling your inner Fox, is to focus on the eyes. If you don’t have colored contacts, I suggest using eyeshadow colors that make your eyes pop! At the bottom of this post you’ll find a list of everything I used to recreate her look. Let me know if you have any questions!
