Fashion Nova’s School Attire

Fashion Nova is an instagram clothing sensation. They cater to those who are a little thicker in the thighs which I love. It’s always been hard for me to find jeans and bottoms my size so this is definitely a go to shop. Here are some back to school items I am looking forward to purchasing from them.

Glistening Medium Wash Jeans

Camel Steal Your Heart Jacket 

Distress Don’t Stress Overall

Olive Cadet Pants

Black Ace Bomber Jacket 

Light Perfect Jeans

It’s mostly geared towards the fall season since it gets pretty cool quickly here in Jersey. What do you like to wear for the fall season? Hows the weather in your state?

I probably haven’t done her outfit enough justice but below you can recreate her look at a fairly more affordable price!

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!

It’s Time For A New Bra!

I will literally wear my same bra for months. Yes, I know it’s not appropiate but ladies don’t act like you don’t do the same. It’s crazy how quickly undergarments can become overworn. But do you really know when it’s time to give up that lucky bra and throw it out? Stop ignoring the signs and make the change!

Elasticity 

Once the elastic band no longer stretches, it’s a problem. You are no longer getting the support the bra is suppose to grip onto which means you’re literally wearing a bra for no reason. Once you have the assistance, you want to maintain it.

Spillage

We constantly wash and dry our bras depending on the brand. But regardless, your bra is going to shrink but your boobs are not! Once you notice your boob spilling out the side of your bra, its definitely time for an upgrade. You never want your boobs buldging out of the protection it’s suppose to be locked into especially your nipple area.

Wiring

Pain is the last thing your boobs should feel. A bra is your comfort, don’t hold onto something that should have to be adjusted in places its not suppose to.

Dirty Bra Straps

This one is for every girl who still doesn’t understand that it’s time to bury the bra. Your straps can easily be seen by anyone! If no matter how many times you wash it, it continues to look dirty, THROW IT AWAY. There are several things that can make a female unattractive and that is one of them! If that doesn’t speak for itself, I don’t know what does. 

There are obviously other signs that it’s time for a new bra but these stood out to me because I realized through these specifically. Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts below!

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!

http://iivorybeauty.blogspot.com/2016/01/catrice-update-fruehling-sommer-2016-lidschatten.html?m=1

Price: $6.99

• not tested on animals

• dual sided applicator included

Swatches from palette left to right:

http://www.catrice.eu/lt/akys/akiu-seseliai/issamiau/catrice-cosmetics/sand-nudes-eyeshadow-palette-010.html

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.
