Copy Her Style: Guiliana Rancic

Hi ladies! I’m actually excited for this post because yesterday was one of my favorite people Guiliana Rancic’s birthday! If you do not know who she is, she is most known as the host on E!’s Fashion Police. If anyone knows more about fashion, its her! I probably haven’t done her outfit enough justice but below you can recreate her look at a fairly more affordable price!

If interested in her jeans: I am not sure if they are currently still the same price but it is available on hsn.com!

Ankle Length Cardigan from H&M $24.99

V Neck Tee from Old Navy $7

Blake Boyfriend Jeans from Fashion Nova $29.99

Pointed Toe Pumps from Charlotte Russe $20

Copy Her Style: Keke Palmer

Hi lovies! Keke Palmer recently posted a photo on her instagram with her new short hair. But I wasn’t focused on her hair. Although it does give me Nia Long vibes, I was more focused on the outfit itself. If you guys didn’t know, I love old classic looks! I was so inspired I decided to find a mock of clothes that you can purchase yourself to achieve the same look.

Some of the items below are not the exact clothing in the photo, it is a mock. I tried to find the cheapest price for each item. 

Snapped Button Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 $19.90

Grey Spaghetti Strap Crop Top$6.99

Girlfriend High Rise Jeans from Urban Outfitters $49

Superstar Foundation Sneakers from Adidas $55

I enjoyed searching through different sites to find these. It actually introduced me to new sites! I’m actually planning on doing more of these! Also, be sure to follow me on pinterest: @alexus0!

Simple Eye Look

Hey lovies! I’m actually excited for this new post because it is an eye look that I’ve been doing all week. It’s so quick and easy to do in the morning to brighten up your face. I’ve been using the Catrice Sand Nudes Eyeshadow Palette from Ulta. I actually love explaining eye looks so if you like this post, there are definitely more to come!

Price: $6.99

• not tested on animals

• dual sided applicator included

Swatches from palette left to right:

Step 1: For starters, I use more than one brush when applying my eye makeup to create a different effect. Basically all of the applicators I use are from either Bh cosmetics or elf cosmetics. 

Using any tapered shadow brush, you are going to pick up the fifth color (slight shimmery taupe brown). Make sure to tap off the excess! You are going to slightly blend into your outer crease using a lighter hand as you gradually bring it into the center.

Step 2: Next you are going to use a smudged brush to cover the entire lid with the third color (peach). Make sure you pat onto the lid rather than rub because the color is shown more. 

Step 3: Taking your classic shadow brush, you are going to pick up the fourth color (light mauve brown) and slightly blend in the corner of your outer lid.

Step 4: Again you want to take the smudge brush with the first color (sand pearl) and pat onto the inner lid.

Step 5: Last you can take your tapered shadow brush again and go over the outer crease area bringing it into the center of the crease. This is optional if you feel like the shadow looks dead after you’ve finished your lid shadows.

OPTIONAL STEP 6: If you want to jazz it up a bit, you can bring the fourth shadow (the color put onto the outer lid) on your lower lash line with any fluffy brush of your choice.

My message to you after you’ve completed this look:

Full Face Using Elf Cosmetics

Recently, Elf cosmetics has been added to Ulta’s website. I am super excited because most likely it will soon be available in select stores. I don’t really like shopping for makeup online. Colors are never scaled as shown so seeing and testing in person is important for me. Elf’s products are cut-rate but exceptional. They are currently having a grand final sale on their website! Literally items are $1! To check out the sale, click here

But before you go, not every product you buy has be over $30 to be the best product in the world. You can create an entire face less than $30 and look just as gorgeous. Today I did what I consider a normal delicate face using only Elf cosmetics.

Poreless Face Primer $6.00

– reduces enlarged pores and fine lines

– infused with tea tree and Vitamin A/E

Acne Fighting Foundation in Caramel $6.00

Instant Brow Lift Pencil in Deep Brown $2.00

3 in 1 Mascara $3.00

Baked Bronzer in Los Cabos $3.00

– perfect use as your bronze and highlight

– contains rose, apricot and grape for hydration and nourishment


Blush in Mellow Mauve $3.00

– blends into a silky finish

Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose $3.00

Okay my total has come up to $26! This same amount is the result of 7 items rather than one item on my face.

All photos are not my own. They from the ulta website. Thank you for reading and I hope this shows you don’t need to go out and spend a ton on one beauty product.

News Flash: Kris Joins The Family!

We all know Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits have been a huge success since it’s launch in December of 2015. She has created a victorious cosmetic line and continues to add new shades as we speak.

https://www.instagram.com/kyliecosmetics/?hl=en

Previously, Kylie has named shades after her older sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian followed by her grandmother Mary Jo. But what about Kris Jenner? Everyone knows that Kris Jenner usually always wants to be apart of something. And now Kylie has welcomed her to the lip kit family. (I hope she comes out with a shade for Kendall and Kim soon!) I personally think it’s unique that she has named certain colors after her family members. It definitely brings a different touch to makeup even though we all know OPI’s nail polish names top everything! Well, congrats Kris! You made it to the collection!

https://www.instagram.com/kyliecosmetics/?hl=en

Along with the photo above, Kris Jenner posted on her twitter her enthusiasm for this surprise.

Her Tweet: My baby girl named her LipKit after me. I am so honored, I love you Ky! #Kristen I’m so obsessed.

She has two other shades coming out along with Kristen on Wednesday, July 20th!

Ginger • Maliboo • Kristen

https://www.instagram.com/kyliecosmetics/?hl=en

I feel like Ginger and Kristen are gorgeous summer colors. Maliboo is another nude shade of course and I feel like her collection has had enough of the nude colors but that’s just personal preferences. I have YET to get my hands on any of the lip kits which is why I haven’t reviewed them yet but I do plan on clicking Ginger and Kristen in my cart on July 20th. 

This post is a little different from what I usually post but I like sharing some beauty/celebrity news with you guys.

Liquid Lippies!

Liquid lipstick have easily become my favorite invention yet. Matte or glossy, I feel like it still has that effect of awesomeness.
Everyone talks about how amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks are and I just wanted to quickly post my top 3 favorite colors.

Too Many Eyes, One Face

I have fell deeply in love with what Too Faced cosmetics has to offer. If you have not tried a product from them, dedicate your next paycheck to their company. Since I am always looking at new products and arrivals, Too Faced has come out with a waterproof mascara with packaging that will blow your mind.

Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

photo disclaimer location

Yes! I know what you’re thinking! It looks so real! It obviously is not and definitely grabs anyone’s attention. It is currently only available in Black but I don’t have an issue with that since like said before, I always choose the blackest black available. Too Faced Better Than Sex is known for giving that smokey messy lash look which is a thumbs up for me.
I’m not too fond of a waterproof mascara unless I’m going to an event with the result of tears coming out of my eyes — since that won’t be happening, I do not have the patience to have my lashes falling out when I remove my makeup.
But I mean this seems like it will have the same result but now you’ll know that your mascara is locked and loaded.

Price : $23.00
(same price and styled brush as regular one, the case is just better)

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend, make sure to like if you enjoyed this post or for more posts on mascara.♡

Look Flirty, Feel Sexy

I would say my style of dressing is very flirty and some may say taunting towards others. I have curves and thick legs so I kind of take advantage of how my body is. I in no way dress over revealing because I do have respect for anyone seeing anything they shouldn’t be able to. Summer can kind of be that excuse to wear those shorter than usual dresses and those higher than usual heels. It will soon be over and I want to share some dress ideas for your summer nights.

Blue Lace Up Mini Dress $13.99

Grey Front Shirring Cami Dress $24.99

Floral Crochet Mini Sundress $25.99
