What Halloween Means for Me + My Costume, Makeup & More

Growing up, my family didn’t celebrate Halloween for religious reasons. On Halloween night, my church would host a communal gathering with games and songs, and at the end of the night, we would all go home with candy bags. Naturally, this made me hate everything about Halloween: the parties, my friends trick or treating together and all of the costumes. In Elementary School, we had a big parade around our school’s lot to show off our costumes and promote school spirit. Afterward, every class would have a Halloween Party. Kids who didn’t celebrate could sit in the library all day or stay home. Being the attention-hog I was, I refused to stay home. After a lot of pleading, my mom reluctantly picked up 2 4-piece costumes from the discount section at a Halloween store: a cat and a devil. From the time I was in the 3rd Grade until now, I have found ways to either make new, unique costumes or mix these two basic ones.

The Devil’s in the Details // 2 Fall Outfits + Makeup #OOTW

Today I will be showing you two fall outfits that I put together. They are very simple on the surface, but can easily be accentuated with the right makeup and jewelry.

Outfit 1

With football season in full swing, this chic yet sporty ensemble is sure to make your man fall head over heels. I chose a varsity-style jacket, a long sleeve black shirt, a checkered skater skirt, and Doc Martens. Of course, the jacket may not be necessary depending on where you live. The boots can be replaced with booties or heels. Get Docs for around $100 on Amazon here. Many stores that used to sell skirts similar to this one don’t sell them anymore. Thankfully, this outfit can be easily adjusted and many different skirts can replace this one.

Here I present to you a versatile treat: a light leather moto jacket, a flowy black tank, ripped medium wash skinny jeans, and statement heels. These thrown together make for a perfectly-balanced autumn ensemble.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color | Review + Swatches

Recently I picked up this lipstick and I’m very excited to try it. Revlon is a high-end drugstore brand. This means that their products are usually between $6 and $15.

Bioré Charcoal Strips vs Bioré Pore Strips & Daiso Charcoal Mask + Reviews

In the past, I’ve used regular Bioré Pore Cleansing Strips on days when I feel that I should look my best. I never really thought that they were the most effective product on the market, but they made me feel as though that my face was really clean, and that is a very satisfying feeling. Over the summer, I tried the Japanese Charcoal Mask. I’ve read fantastic reviews on this product, so I was very excited to use it and see the results for myself. More recently, I received a package in the mail with the Bioré Charcoal Strips. In this post, I will review all three products and tell you which one is worth your time and money.  Continue reading “Bioré Charcoal Strips vs Bioré Pore Strips & Daiso Charcoal Mask + Reviews”

DIY Soft Tortilla Rolls: Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks

Tortilla Wraps and Rolls are a very inexpensive option for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. You can go out and buy them in a few stores, but it is much cheaper to make them yourself. They can be eaten for dessert or as a meal. In this post, I will show you how to make Tortilla Wraps & Rolls. At the end of this post, I will give you ideas for 10 different wraps you can make at home with simple ingredients.

You can make these hot or cold, depending on your preferences. 300°F, once the temperature reaches there taken them out, the edges should be golden or lighter. If you want a crunchy roll heat it to 350°F and leave in for 5 minutes or until edges are dark.

This is the tortilla bread I used:

Everyday Makeup Look Using Affordable Products

The makeup you wear every day has to be subtle. It can’t damage your face and it can’t take very long to apply. Unless you’re an absolute pro, you probably can’t afford to do full face makeup when you’re running late to work. Here are the products I use when I’m in a rush and don’t want to look as though I’ve just rolled out of bed. This post is also a tutorial, so the products are in order of which I recommend using first.

1. Eyebrows

Brow Pencil, Brush, and/or Gel. I use the ColourPop Bro Pencil. It’s just $5. I absolutely love Coloupop and I definitely recommend this product. It is a subtle and very gentle pencil to fill in your brows. It also has an eyebrow brush on the other end of it. Buy it here for just $5. You can also use a small amount of brow gel if you’re worried about your eyebrows staying in place.  Continue reading “Everyday Makeup Look Using Affordable Products”
