Friday Night Football Hair, Makeup, and Outfit!

Football Season!
In all reality, I hate football. It makes no sense! I have tried to get people to explain it to me, but in the end they have all given up. Apparently I am football illiterate
BUT! I do know how to look for the games ;)

Let's start with face makeup...
  • Start off with a primer, I am using Rimmel Fix and Perfect. A Primer will mattify your skin, provide a nice base, and hold your Makeup on all night!
  • Next apply your favorite Foundation or BB Cream. I suggest using something with a lighter coverage a matte finish, because if you are running around at a football game or dancing at the dance you will be sweating a lot... We need to nip that shiny runny look in the bud... Quick! I am using L'Oreal Magic BB Cream in Medium.
  • For an under eye concealer I am using Cover Girl Smoothers Liquid Concealer. I don't really have dark circles, but i have bright blue veins... not pretty :/
  • I have a Mark by Avon Anti-Acne Concealer for any blemishes that might still be showing through. And if you have any really bad spots, like Mt. Everest bad...
  • Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer by Hard Candy. This stuff is the sizz-nit ;) It is made to cover tattoos... Yes, it is really that good ;)
  • Let's finish off the face makeup! I am using the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm. This is yet another element to keep you shine free all night!
  • To help keep your makeup from melting off tonight, spray on some elf Makeup Setting Spray. It works :)
  • The last thing isn't for the moment, but you will need them later. Oil Blotting Sheets, use them. Stick a pack in your bag and touchup when you go to the bathroom!

    Time for Eyes....
  • Just like your face, let's start off the eyes with an eyelid primer! This is by elf in sheer.
  • I'm not crazy over eve shadow, but I love me some eyeliner! Let's start off by lining your lower waterline and inner corner with a white eyeliner. This will brighten up your eyes and make them look bigger and more awake.
  • Next take a black liner and line your upper tight line and lash line. But keep it thin! We are going for the illusion that you have fuller lashes, not raccoon eyes
  • My school color is Purple, so I am going to be using purple eyeliner, but feel free to replace it with your school color! I am using this purple to line my lower lash line, but don't go all the way to the inner corner! Only go about half way.
  • Finish this look by using an eyeshadow brush and a purple eyeshadow to retrace your steps on the purple liner. This will help to keep your eyeliner from running down your face! If you have an eyeliner sealer or something to that effect feel free to use that too, you don't want your makeup sliding.

Cheeks and Lips...
  • I know, weird combination, but there were only a couple of things so why not stick them together! ;) For cheeks I am using this elf blush in Candid Coral. Sweep it lightly across your cheekbones to preserve that pretty Summer tan flush.
  • Now lips... Start off by using a lipstain so your color is gonna be there all night! this one is a Covergirl Outlast stain in 415... it has no name? that isn't fun...
  • Next I am using my Baby Lips in Grape Vine (see, there is a name ;) to give that pretty fall purple-ish color. Now I know I have done a lip tutorial/routine before on how to make your lips soft, kissable, and HUGE without using a plumper! If you would like to see that click here!

I went for the pretty basic Fish-Tail braid, which I can not do ;) I had to get my friend to do this for me! I have bangs, so of course they wouldn't stay back. I pulled them forward and straightened them, and then hair sprayed down the whole hairstyle! It held up pretty well :)

Moving on to the Outfit...
It's pretty simple, but still cute! I am wearing my favorite American Eagle Dark Wash Jeans with my Light Brown Leather Cowboy Boots (which you can't see). Moving up I am wearing a Long Sleeved White V-Neck T-Shirt with a Burgundy Tank-Top underneath. Over that I am wearing just a basic Jean Jacket with a Flannel Plaid Light Brown and Burgundy Scarf.
Go pretty basic on the jewelry. I didn't do a necklace because of the scarf, or arm candy because of the long sleeves, but I do have on some pretty dang adorable Gold Fall Leaf Earrings! A lot of basics that come together and (to me at least) just look like the epitome of fall! :) But whatever you wear, just remember to layer, and dress warm! Because if your football games are anything like mine you are gonna be freezing your tail off!! ;)

Have fun at the game, I hope your team gets lots of home runs!

Just kidding, I'm not that football illiterate ;)

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

Date Box: October

So you may or may not remember, about two Christmases ago I ordered a Date Box!  It had hot chocolate and mugs, with a gingerbread house kit (you can find the full review here).  My boyfriend as I had the most fun with it, and the mugs were gorgeous, so on a whim this October I decided to give it another try!
As stated in the last post, it is about $40 a month, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but if you really need some new date night ideas, then this would be a fun and creative way to get them.  If you search, you can find a discount code bringing the price of your first box down to $5.  I'm not going to post the code because it isn't mine to give out, but they are easy to come by!  They also offer a digital option now, which is $8 a month.  If you scroll down to the bottom of their about page there is a bar where you enter your email and they send you your first digital date for free, which seems to be a cooking class for two!
The experience is significantly more person…

Three Ways to Christmas Shop on the Cheap

Christmas shopping is something a lot of us tend to put off until the last second, and then are scrambling the week before Christmas to buy things just because you feel like you have to.  You end up buying something, at exorbitant obnoxious prices, that you know the person you are buying for won’t even like!

I came up with a few ways you can get awesome presents, not have to kill yourself trying to get them at the last minute, and not break the bank...
My first suggestion, is to shop in advance! I know, this seems super simple, but you wouldn't believe the difference it makes to start a couple months in advance, and just buy things you know the person would like as you see them.  This year, I stopped in an antique shop on my way to work one day, just to look around.  I ended up leaving with this gorgeous bowl, mug, and tea set with I am planning to give to family members, and because the place was about to close down, I got them for half off the original price!That leads me right in…
