Underneath I am what you seek..

Hellow everyone! I'm so upset that I wasn't able to make a video from this outfit!! I love it so much and felt amazing in this dress. The necklace I'm wearing really makes a statement and to me it makes the outfit a whole lot edgier! I hope you guys like this. I wore it for a grad party last week, it was a bit formal but I love dressing up! It's got a shatter type of print on it and I paired it with a skinny belt to add a little more to the outfit. I decided to wear nude heels elongate my legs even more! BTW The best thing about this dress is the pockets! Omg so awesome hehe!
My makeup was super simple and I curled my hair like always.

Makeup: Shadow: Blackberry by MAC
Lipstick: Twig by MAC
Blush: Fluer Power by MAC
Nails: Lovie Dovie by Essie

Back to School: Fashion Essentials

Now that you guys have seen my college fashion haul I'm gonna share with you guys my school essentials fashion wise! These are a few of the things I find important to have for college.

1. Toms have been a savior for those days that my feet are just killing me and I have to be walking around all day. Something about the cushion inside of them makes it so comfortable! Plus theyre super cute in many different colors!

2. Printed cardigans keep you warms in the buildings and make your outfit stan out from all those basic tees out there. Now that Fall is coming up I hope to be wearing more of my printed cardi's!

3. Lipstick is a major essential! I have a few go-to lipsticks that just make my face look more alive and bright in the morning! You don't need a lot of makeup just some bright lipstick!

4. Sunglasses for those early morning classes when you're still half asleep and the sun is beating down on you while you walk to your next class or to your car. I always carry these with me since they are so cute!!

Hope you enjoy the video!!

Vintage Circus Series: Ring Leader Dark Version

As you all know I had a Vintage Circus themed grad party last week and I had been trying out different make up styles to see which one suited me the best! I love this super dark smokey eye with red glitter on the inner corners. It photographs super nicely and is very extravagant! I usually don't wear smokey eyes or dark make up so this is very different for the people that see my all the time. That was the point since it is a costume party! I decided to go very with a very white under eye and highlight my cheek bones, but I used some bronzer to contour the hollow of my cheek. I used two different red lipsticks, a black liner and shadow to darken it and a red lipliner. Here's the video on how to achieve this dramatic costume look! Can be toned down or taken up a notch!

** Disregard Hair! 
Make Up Used:

Black Eye Shadow: Carbon by MAC
Red Glitter Shadow: Red Light by Obssesive Compulsive Cosmetics
Concealer: NW 15 MAC
White Highlighter: Concealer
Bronzer: Clarins
Eyeliner: Maybelline
Mascara: Full N Soft Maybelline
Lip liner: Brick MAC
Lipsticks: Russian Red MAC
Elizabeth Arden

Vintage Circus Series: The Lion/Lion Tamer

Here is my version of a Lion and a Lion Tamer. I actually Love this so much!! It was so much fun and came out so cute! I used a lot of yellow and gold eyeshadows on my eyes and cheeks. I also used the face paint for the nose and the dots, I hope you guys like it! If anyone has ever done "costume makeup" let me know!! I love to see your creativity!

We have some time before we say goodbye....

I'm soooo sorry if my posts have been crazy, irregular and all that! I have been super busy with homework and school has been crazy as well. College has been some what boring I have to admit since   I'm taking Math and Psycology at the moment, later on I'll take English. 
But I didn't think it would be this stressfull! Not that the work is hard or that there's a lot of hw but because I'm no use to the deadlines. I have a quiz every time I go to Math and every week for Psycology. So it takes some getting use to since I came from homeschool (and had no need for deadlines)
Well I hope you guys like my Outfits of the week video! I tried to add some more cute pieces this time around to not get so boring with the same kind of clothes. I only had three outfits this week so bare with me as I show you the details :)

Vintage Circus Series: The Pretty Clown

I will admit it, clowns are creepy and not cute at all. I don't like their face paint or their purpose. But I found this amazing, beautiful picture of a girl who potrayed a "pretty" clown. I got super inspired to do a make up tutorial using face paints to copy her look. Since I'm doing this circus party I decided to also make tutorials on costume make up ideas to help out anyone who might want to try it out in the future.
Okay I will also admit that the face paint that I bought was pretty cheap in quality therefore it was not very opaque at all. Sad about that but on the up side it looks nice in pictures!! If you do decide to go as a clown go ahead and buy the real face paint for clowns. 

*I prefer the Cirque de Soliel face make up :) Beautiful art!

Vintage Circus: Cotton candy

Hey guys!! here's another video from my circus series! I hope you guys like it and find it useful/helpful.  It was such a fun experience to put this circus together and I would love to do it again! 

Cotton candy from papajohnspeanuts

It was really good and my favorite was the blue cotton candy! 
Everyone loved it and took home! It was such a unique and special little touch to the circus! It really made the circus theme come to life and pulled everything together, just like the popcorn, posters ect.

Can't wait to show you guys my photos!

Outfits of the week 5 and College Outfits!

Hey everyone! This is the last OOTW I am doing for my August Challenge! As we can see we're already in September! Wow! I seriously can't believe it. So much has happened in the last nine months and the year is almost up!! I'll take the time now to tell you what's been going on in my life.
If you see my video you'll notice my first week of college is already over and it was pretty good. I don't know anyone in my classes but I expected that. My classes aren't too much fun lol I have Math in the morning and Psychology in the late afternoon. In October I will start having English classes in the early afternoon and I hope that one is interesting (mostly b.c of my love for writing!)
Classes are chill but at the same time at a high paced level. You seriously need to be paying attention and taking good notes. I also noticed that even though there are some people who don't dress up there are a lot of people who do!! (Guys included!) That was good to see. 
Well it's labor day weekend so we had a long weekend and that was fun to just relax.
I hope you guys liked my outfits! I tried to incorporate some different summer looks before Fall begins!
