“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

One outfit, three looks, fall outfit

One outfit with three different looks. Fall is the season you can really mix up your outfits by pairing simple pieces I completely make the look different. Fall can have different weather changes which can bring changes to your accessories. 

The first look is more simple with just a few pieces to make an outfit. It is a 3/4 length crop top paired with rippedand destressed skinny jeans and a pair of brown flat pointy toe booties. 

The next look has the same pieces but to give it more of an edgier look it has a black leather jacket. This can be worn on a night out to keep you warm and dress your look up a little bit more.

This look is paired with a tan cardigan which combines perfect neutrals for fall. This is perfect to make your look more casual and sweet and keep your warmer if it is a little chilly.

BH Cosmetics 12 piece Berry Brush Set

“We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people 
to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the
 people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg 
in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us 
to let ourselves be loved.” 

This is the 12 Piece Berry Brush Set that has synthetic bristles and has purple dip dyed ends with a pink brush handle. This is an extremely affordable brush set for only $15 and is high quality. It comes in a cute and durable brush holder which comes in handy when you are traveling or use it to do others makeup as well and matches how cute the brushes them self are. These brushes have been said to be able to stand up against Mac brushes by the experts such as Youtuber Carli Bybel.






The Brushes
1. The first is a dual sided brow and lash brush which a works like any typical brush like this.
2. This is a spoolie to help brush your brows out and make them lay the way you want. This is nice and this and not too corse.
3. This is a skinny a liner brush to help make a nice fine and exact line with your eye liner. 
4. This is a fine eye liner brush which will help make a nice solid winged line and create a good top line for your upper lid.
5. This is an angled eye liner brush which is great for also making a cat eye and a winged line and crest for drawing a solid line under your lower lash line.
6. This is a great smudge brush. It's just thick enough and can grab the liner or shadow and smudge it and gives good control. 
7. This is a typical fan brush. It's a little this so depending on what you use this for it may be a good or bad thing. I use it to sweep away excess fall out so I fine the fact that the brush is thin a good thing because it doesn't just smudge the excess eye shadow. 
8. This is a flat eye liner brush. I don't really use this one because I don't like it not having an angle to it but it just depends on how you apply liner. It is sturdy though. 
9. This is a small eye shadow brush which it great for applying a V to the outter eye or applying some color to the inner eyes test duct. 
10. This is a larger eye shadow brush which is very soft and applies shadow vet well. It picks up the color and distributes it well for larger areas. 
11. This is a blush brush which is the perfect size to apply blush and give good control. It is very soft  as well and distributes color well. 
12. This is a powder brush. It is a decent size and feels really good when applying powder. It creates a good finish to your skin as well as providing good coverage. 

All of these brushes are fine quality and hold Realtek with without and bristles coming out. The eye liner brush are a little stiffer than the larger brushes but it doesn't hurt, it just helps provide a good line and good control. The eye shadow brushes a softer but stil a little stiff so that your can control where the shadow goes. Then the blush and powder brush are very soft and nice to use.

Casual Fall Outfit

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

It isn't cold yet, so I paired a comfy sweater that will keep you warm when it is a little but chillier with a pair of loose shorts. It is the perfect fall look because it incorporates the neutral fall colors. 
 
What I am wearing
•A cream colored sweater with vertical embroidery tucked in.
•Black and cream striped loose shorts from Charlotte Russe.
•Liz Claiborne black pumps.

― Audrey Hepburn

Fall is all about the neutrals. However this year a hot nail trend is to add glitter to your nails. So with these inexpensive nail colors that I picked out for this season go ahead and add a glittery topcoat.

Easy and Effective Skin Care Routine

Smile every chance you get.  Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for 
all the good things you do have and all the problems
 you know you don't have. 
I do this routine every day minus a couple of things that I only use once a week. This is a very quick and easy skin care routine that I have found to be very effective throughout the years and really make a difference in the health of my skin.

1. I like to start off by using Ponds Luminous clean face cleaner. It's a very gentle yet effective face cleanser that really focuses on pulling on of the makeup out of your pores and leaving your face looking bright and fresh. I use my Okay effects vibrating brush head with it to really get the cleanser down in deep to my pores and massage every thing in while mildly exfoliating.

This step is optional for days that I may be taking a lot of photos or will just be wearing makeup for a long time out and about and won't be able to touch up. This Olay shine shine go away is a cleanser that puts a Matte finish on your skin and so once you are out of the shower the oils your skin produces are absorbed and don't make your face oily. 

2. The next step is using my blemish control apricot scrub. It I identical to the St. Ives apricot scrub and has all of the benefits. It is paraben free which means less harmful chemicals. This scrub helps prevent and get rid of break out and also gently exfoliates the skin leaving is soft and clean. 

3. I use this about once a week. It is a paper face mask from Freemam using rise water and this really just helps put nutrients back in your skin preventing the dull look and makes it look bright and fresh again.

4. Then I use my cover girl clean eye makeup remover to get rid of whatever excess makeup that may still be on my eyes using a cotton round and gently take it off.

5. Then I use my Biore restoring skin boosting serum helping it look fresh and awake.

6. Then I take my Benefit eye potent cream and put it on under my eyes to help get rid of dark circles and fine line and really just hydrate my under eyes.

7. And finally I take my Ulta Skincare face lotion to help hydrated it and help prevent  fine lines and get rid of the uneven skin tone.

Fall Outfit

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
― Marylin Monroe 


This is a great outfit idea for fall when you still want to look nice and going out. Cardigans and leopard print are still in style so try your own interpretation of it!

Fall Lip Colors


I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected
it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far
 more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just
happened to me without my ever seeking it.
Audrey Hepburn

         

The first is Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12 hour Lip Stick in the color Playful Purple Rose. It goes on incredibly smooth and is very hydrating. It stays on very well with the exceptional lip touch up. This is the perfect Mauve color for fall that gives a more noticeable color. 

Next is Loreals Colour Riche in the color Saucy Mauve. This is extremely pigmented and is true to color. While it doesn't stay on very long it is very hydrating and smooth. This is a more subtle mauve and is very natural for fall. 
 
The third is the Tarte Glamazon pue performance 12 hour Lipstick in the color Wild (Cool Red). This is the same line as the first color and has all of the same benefits. However this color is more of a in your face color. It is the classic red lip only fall addition with the blue undertones. This is perfect for fall.
 
The final product is the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the color Raspberry Rush. This product truly feels so amazing on your lips and nourishes them while you wear. This color is the perfect Berry color for the fall season. The color goes on very bold as well and is good for this seasons look.

Sebastian Volupt Volume Shampoo & "Holy Grail"



Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it,  and sometimes even travel 

around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in  the manifestations of your own blessings. 
And once you have achieved a state of happiness,


 you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to 
keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.
 

The Sebastian Volupt Shampoo:
"Achieve great hair heights with Volupt Shampoo by Sebastian. Revolutionary cushioning particles construct your harmony of soft volume, shielding-in the lightness and enhancing your style with weightless micro-lite technology." 


This shampoo has quickly become my favorite shampoo I have ever tried. Before I get started on how well it works I just want to say how good it smells! It isn't some fruity, it is very clean and purfumey. The reason why I tried this product is because I have very thin and fine hair which causes my hair to look extremely lifeless. I search and searched for shampoos that helped fine hair and this one really stood out. It not only leaves my hair feeling so weightless and giving it good volume, but it leaves it feeling very clean feeling and has no oily residue some conditioners tend to leave.
