Product Rave: Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil

If you've been following my blog you may have seen this eyebrow pencil in my Updated Everyday Natural High School Make Up List (click here) but if not, I felt the need to let you guys know that I've been using this product so often that it was time it got it's own special shout out :)

To use this product I've been messily shading in the darkest part of my brow, and then using the brush to spread the product out and define the shape of my brow. It's a super easy process in the morning and I never forget to do it. If I want an even more intense brow, I'll add a little bit of powder to deepen the color. It lasts all day and there's no need for a clear mascara or gel.

oh ho ho sneak peak alert!!! I may or may not be doing my first ever guest post with N.C. at The Sunny Scenerey. Keep an eye out on both of our blogs!! It should be up sometime this week ;)

Daisy Rollerball Marc Jacobs

I can't believe it took me this long to finally hop onto the Daisy by Marc Jacobs band wagon but here I am! This scent has accompanied on a handful of my summer outings and since we're in this transition stage into fall, I thought I might as well give this product a shout out before it's too late.

Daisy it a fresh, young, every day scent that is suitable for the mildly girly girls like myself. On the Sephora website, it's described as, "Sophisticated, with a touch of whimsy, violet captures the eclectic, vintage flavor of Marc Jacobs' feminine, edgy designs. Always elegant, always enchanting - but not too serious - Daisy is a sparkling floral bouquet, spirited and fresh, wrapped in comfort and warmth."

One good thing to note is that I've found the Eu de Parfum less sharp than the concentrated perfume you can buy in bottles. If you have the chance, I'd definitely recommending giving both versions a good sniff.

I think would be perfect as birthday gift because it's quite hard to go wrong with such a versatile scent. Having it in roller ball form also makes it nice and portable which is something that makes me reach for it over other perfumes.

Updated* Every Day Natural High School Make UP

Here is my updated every day natural high school make up routine! It's pretty simple and I've been enjoying every step of it. Lately I've gotten into the mood of sleeping and waking up early. This gives me more time to sort everything out and be more productive in the morning which I highly value and because of that, I've been able to add a few new steps to my make up routine. please enjoy!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - Medium 25
Since I want something lightweight for school, I love using a little bit of concealer where I need it: my chin area, around my nose, and a little bit on my cheeks. This product is super creamy and doesn't look out of place on my face which is why i love it!

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder - Stay Neutral
To set my concealer, I like using my Elf Powder Brush to dust a little bit of pressed powder all over my face. It blurs all the edges and makes everything last longer-- including my blush. I'm pretty sure that the loose, fluffy brush I'm using is for loose powders, but whatever. it works :)

Rimmel Scandaleyes - 002 Sparkling Black
I have been loving this super creamy, sparkly black eyeliner on my upper lid. I love to smudge a little bit on my outer corner into a wing with a brush which seriously takes 30 seconds max. This formula is pretty wet and super easy to play with.

Naked 1 Palette - Darkhorse, Sin
To lessen the eye look and set the eyeshadow I've been patting a dark horse which is a metallic brown with gold shimmer over my eyeliner. It makes the look less harsh and adds a bit of dimension. To highlight, I love putting sin on my lower lash line to brighten up my eyes.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - Waterproof
To finish up the eyes I have been loving the Falsies waterproof mascara. I can't believe it took me this long to try it out! It keeps a curl, lengthens my lashes, and has yet to smudge on me!

Professional Eyebrow Pencil - 001 Dark Brown
For brows I've been using a pencil than than my usual powder routine. Its definitely a more precise, dark look which I prefer when I'm wearing glasses. I also don't need to use anything to set it like wax or clear mascara which eliminates a step.

Canmake Cheek & Cheek - 06
Lastly, I've reverted back to an old favorite. With my stippling brush I love dabbing a bit of this on each cheek with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush for a super fun, natural pretty pink.

New Glasses (HI IRIS!)

I used to absolutely hate wearing glasses and strictly stuck to contacts. But since I've got these I've worn contacts only once and it's been over 5 weeks! They have "thick" frames that are still thin enough that my eyes don't get lost behind them and I find the black to gray ombre less harsh against the face than all black rims. Lastly the sides are just wires which give everything a delicate touch and ensure that the frames aren't heavy and therefore uncomfortable.

I got these in asia so I can't link you guys, but if you have the chance to check out a pair of ombre glasses for yourself, I HIGHLY recommend!

OOTD: Last First Day of High School (Super Seniors)

Yes, I did wear this on the first day of school. I figured that I haven't done very many posts that feature my sense of style, and it was about time that I showed you guys how I like to dress up for a casual day at school!


As a tradition at my school, all the seniors dress up and decorate the school on the first day. Some examples of past years include Roman Empire (lots of togas), Jungle Theme (lots of leopard print), and SEAniors (nautical). This year our theme was Super Seniors! And because I didn't have a wonder woman costume hanging in the back of my closet from halloween, my friend and I decided to be our own weird heroes because, oh why not. I had some left over sea green fabric decided to turn it into a cape! We also had matching lavender skirts from a choir thing. I guess we're superfoods or something... except we're not healthy... try not not to read to deeply into it.

Yay for back to school fashion HAHAHAHA

Great with a Tan

Often times, the range of colors that compliment/appear on your skin can get a little crazy when you have a tan. Here are two products that I picked out for my sister on a recent spontaneous trip to Target to compliment her skin tone all year round. We've both been trying these items out and I had to ask if I could share our selected cheek and lip duo with you!

Burt's Bees Lip Crayon Redwood Forest $9
Although it seems like a deep red, Redwood Forrest is a light watermelon that brings a healthy flush to the face. It's nothing garish and is just one step further in the cherry direction from being a my-lips-but-better product. The formula is quite like lipstick and with a few layers can be transformed into a opaque tomato red with long wearing matte finish. What I love about this product is that with a tan, it looks more natural but in the winter it can be worn as a statement lip.

L'OREAL True Match Super Blendable Blush Apricot Kiss $10 
Apricot Kiss is a peachy-pink, "barely there" shade. It's just dark enough to be detectable but bright enough that it can worn when you lose your tan. The formula is super smooth and blendable and has just a little bit of shimmer. It's perfect for a concealer + blush day.
