I have bought a LOT of new makeup, even though I'm doing project ten pan. But I think I've decided to officially abort mission. ABORT ABORT!! Well, sort of, I've only finished 2 products so far, but some products are dwindling down, a little bit.
I think I have a problem, when I know that I'll never see someone after a few weeks or days again, I dont' allow myself to get close to them, just friendly. I think it's a trust problem. That stinks for me. I think I'm really rambling, because there's nothing to talk of -sometimes I get bored of trying to be pretty and talk of makeup, and fashion. What is the po int really? Honestly, You dont even know what I'm wearing. Around people, I feel guady and clown like woth a full face of makeup and giant bangles.

Now, you guys are probably curious as to what makeup i wore fishing. (isn't that what we're alwalys curious of?) I decided to go natural and wear my Almay Natural Makeup Foundation (more like a tinted moisturizer, goes on really light and smooth) and topped off my oily spots with a little bit of the Everyday Minerals Pressed Powder and used the Swirled Cosmetics Kabuki brush. After, I applied the Gold Aura Accenting Cream Shadow from Maybelline into my waterline and lower lash line and a little bit of the Prestige black Kohl liner in my inner waterline. The result? Intensely glowy, sparkling eyes that made my brown eyes pop in all the winners photos!

so they say...
But, in reality it's quite the opposite of your ideal carefree summer. The summer before your junior year of highschool. Kids, you know what that means... SAT PREP. Yes, hours and hours devoted to mindless questions about the structure of sentences and triginometry of triangles. Not on that, I'm going to a dance summer intensive and researching in a science lab. Just when I can gasp for a moment of freedom, I'm strapped back down again. It's such a yearly thing, it just never stops...ever. So, I decided that since "i'll have more time in the summer" I'm going to document my daily trips to manhatthan. My trips to Florida, Upstate new york and the such. I'm sure you guys are interested in where I go, what I do, what I'm wearing, and what new makeup look I concoted for the day. Pictures galore honeys. I doubt that there are going to be daily posts (do you know how long those pictures take to upload?!? eonnsss!), but i'm hoping for 3 times a week with photo laden posts. Also, there will hopefully be a boost in the frequency of videos (but that's doubtful hahah).
Anyways, moving on to the meat of the post, I'd like to ask you guys a question to think about. Why do you like your favorite guru(s) on youtube? Or your favorite bloggers? Is it because of their amazing personality? Or is it because of their stunning talent? I personally believe that the viewers should love a guru because of her stellar talent, not only because of her personality. I think having a fun personality could add to the fact that you're amazing. It should be like a bonus - not the whole test. Just something for the readers to ponder about, I've defintely done a lot of thinking about it.
About my life now, well it's hellish for sure. It's "finals week" but I haven't another final until next tuesday. I did watch karate kid! it was so cute :) jackie chan + cute 12 year old kid = adorable. It was one of those slightly scary/very cheesy disney movies - but it was cute all the same. It kind of made me feel like I could do anything I set my mind to ... for a second. If only that were the truth.

1. Maybelline Chai Latte Quad - Browbone Color
I'VE HIT PAN!! woohoo, I believe it was last thursday or friday that I saw that glorious spark of tin hit my eyes. Yes! the joy. My goal was to hit pan on the eyeshadow, but now I really just want to finish it up - so this eyeshadow has a decent sized hole in it, but is still going strong!
2. C.O. Bigelows Peppermint Gloss
I originally wanted to finish a Revlon Shiny Sheers, then a VS Shinestick, but ended up settling for this 2 year old tingly gloss. It gives a cooling effect - which is perfect for summertime and the clear shade is versatile over any lipstick, or alone. I'm probably less than 1/2 way through (I just subbed it in recently)
3. Rimmel Lipstick in Airy Fairy
When I first got the lipstick, I made a scratch off point to where the 1/2 way mark was (so I knew how much was left). I'm a good 3-4 cm off of the mark, I've still a way to go - but the lipstick is slowly diminishing (Thank goodness!). I have very mixed feelings towards it, sometimes it's gorgeous - yet sometimes I look like an ashen zombie.
4. Elf Hypershine Gloss in Joy
5. Smith's Rosebud Salve
This remains untouched, I've been prefering my Vaseline... I better get cracking...
6. Maybelline lash stilleto mascara
Darn, I haven't touched this either - I HATE MASCARA.
7. Everyday Minerals Powder
I used this... once this month.
8. Almay Naturals Foundation
I used this thrice this month, that's not so bad - right? I use this as undereye concealer often
9. Clniique Bronzer in Sunkissed
I use this everyday, but a dent hasn't even been made - it's a bad sign.
10. Revlon Cream Illuminance Quad in Precious Metals - Gold Color
I've used this relatively often, it's dimming down :)
I CHEATED. sorry, i had to buy the MAC to the beach stuff - no exceptions.

Priced at $2.99 (found at your local drugstore) this bronzer is defintely the best bang for its buck. The packaging could be better and the included "puff" is useless unless you want to cake your bronzer on. I suggest using all bronzers, but this one especially with a large paddle powder brush or a stippler brush. This is an extremely pigmented, and matte bronzer that is perfect for contouring. I prefer to use a slightly shimmery bronzer on my cheekbones or all over my face to give an actual glow. This is useful for contouring, but I barely use this.
Sephora Sundisk - $20
This product is HUGE. But, like the NYC bronzer, it only has one color to choose from. But, this color can never look muddy with a peachy/coppery glow. It has a very slight shimmer or sheen in it but is probably considered matte. I love this bronzer to give my face a nice glow (the 3B method) with a large paddle brush. I never contour with this and use this basically for an all over glow. Although I like this, some downfalls are that the powder isn't packed loosely enough so it can get messy, the compact is HUGE and bulky and that it has a weird perfume-y smell.
Cargo Blu Ray Bronzer - $30 (bought @ $15 @ Sephora)
This bronzer is never muddy and has a mostly matte finish. It has a slight orange tinge which can make you glow slightly orange in pictures and on stage. So never use this as stage makeup! I do like the consistency and the quality is good. The power is packed well into the pan and the packaging is sturdy. I love the huge mirror and how the hinge goes past 180 degrees so you can get into the bronzer without getting the powder on the mirror. I like to use a stippler brush with this just because I find it breaks up this powder the best.
Clinique True Bronzer in Sunkissed
- a pinky toned bronzer with golden sparkles

Beauty. The saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is a true depiction of beauty. Your perception of beautiful will be beautiful. If you believe you are beautiful, you will truly transform into a beautiful person – inside and out. Beauty may be that which seduces you, that which is promiscuous. Yet true beauty is neither of these things. True beauty is emulated from within; it is not something shallow or superficial. The true definition of beauty is not clearly defined. I feel beauty. Beauty radiates from the beautiful. It is those who do the right thing, help out those who cannot help themselves. Those who are beacons of light in this cruel world of hardship. Yet, someone can fake these feelings, pretend – and fool some people. Remember that most see through you, you may believe you are opaque, but in reality, you are transparent. If you are not beautiful, even the slightest hint, at least don’t try to hide reality. You are ugly, hideous and mean. That is you – accept you. Once you accept you- perhaps you can change into someone truly beautiful.
“When I wake up in the morning, I’m not afraid to hide my face – I simply feel pure and clean, like when I have a freshly scrubbed face.”
