No No No to the Cameltoe

hi girlss !
The weather's changing, and so are the colors on the trees and I am in HEAVEN these days wearing my cardigans and cute fall boots. But one trend I am definitely not a fan of is leggings. It's not because I'm not skinny, so haters back the eff off right now.. it's because way too many girls somehow think it's okay to wear leggings as pants. NO!
So here's my rant about these ACCESSORIES and ways to wear them:

1. Dear BIG GIRLS, you know who the hell you are, don't you dare throw on a pair of leggings. If you even think... no, if you even LOOK at a pair of leggings in a store your ass needs a reality check. You can email me and we'll discuss all of about 764 reasons why purchasing such an item is a mistake and a tragedy. Not only for you and your curves but for innocent bystandards who ventured out of their homes on a beautiful fall day to find your ass galavanting around town looking like a goddamn fool.

Again, I'm not the skinniest girl in the world and I can't even imagine myself in a pair of leggings. I'd look 190% ridiculous and nothing short of a hot mess.

2. If you're gonna throw on a pair, please be sure to check what you're wearing underneath those babies.
.. Still confused..? Invest in seamless underwear homegirl. Simply put.

This looks ridiculous, I don't care skinny you are, I don't need to see this when your walking in front of me.
OH! I guess I'll add this in here too. DO NOT wear your ruffly, striped, starred, underwear laced in jingling coins .. unneccesary. Really. Why do you even have those? Why do your panties need to have currency on them ? ugh..

3. This might be the bigges offense I've seen & just about everyone does this.
Do NOT wear a T-shirt with these shits. Wear a long shirt, or a tunic. Leggings are not pants. You wouldn't find them in Forever 21, or Old Navy, or Urban Outfitters with the pants... They're in Accessories okay...
There's a perfectly acceptable logic for this... THEY'RE NOT FUCKING PANTS.
So dont just throw on a hoodie with those metallic gold leggings and a pair of flipflops and think you're ready to take on the world, cuz you're not. we all think you looks crazy.

I'm not even sure where to begin... They're cute. Don't get me wrong, but you have to make sure they make sense with your outfit and the environment you're in. If you're just going to class, sure, through on a black boyfriend shirt and a pair of burgundy leggings with your boots. No problems. But the metallic, sheeny, gold leggings with a black boyfriend tshirt in class is confusing. Did you just come from a rave? I'm just confused, because you obviously took the time to decide 'yeah, you know, I think i AM gonna wear these discoball, saturday night fever leggings. Totally appropriate. No. No it's not.
If you're gonna go out to a club with your friends, thats 100% acceptable. Just make sure it makes sense.

5. The last thing I'm gonna mention is cameltoe.
I really don't think I need to say anything else about it. It's unacceptable. I don't care how cute you are, I can see your vagina lips & thats unneccesary. Go home.

bleh, if you guys have some of your own rules, feel free to leave a comment
thanks. let's end this disaster!

HAUTELOOK: GUESS & Smashbox Cosmetics

If you're unaware of the Hautlook website, you've been missing out BIGTIME.
Every 2weeks or so the site sells different desginer, brand name products for about 40-70% off department store prices. It's unreal.

voluminous million lashes

yeah, that's the name of the mascara. Voluminous Million Lashes by L'oreal. That's right, the same company that makes Voluminous Mascara; one of the most talked about mascaras on the market. I noticed this product while browsing through makeup aisles in WalMart. Packaged in Metallic gold with a 'new' sticker placed perfectly on the edge of the product, I had to have it.
I promsed myself I wouldn't open it though, not until my Voluminous was all used up.
The next day was another story. & Can you honestly blame me. The product claims to separate lashes from corner to corner and give even the skimpiest of lashes extraordinary volume.... and THAT IT DOES. ! im having trouble uploading my before and after pics, but as soon as the internet works in my favor, i'll post them.

Another feature is its applicator brush, fatter than the original Voluminous mascara and a tube that eliminates excess product on the brush [ so, basically, I don't have to scrape extra mascara off onto the top of the tube before I use it on my lashes.. which is definitely a plus.]
For around $8, I'm impressed, but hey, who am I. try it yourself.

Purple Night

Fall is quickly approaching, which means some minor changes in makeup. If you were wearing powder foundation or tinted moisturizer during the summer, you can pull out your liquid foundation without fear of the humidity ruining it. Richer colors are coming back, and I'm really excited about it. Deep reds, and burgundys are some of my favorites, but last week I did a pretty simple purple eye for the nighttime and got positive feedback. So here's the look

The majority of the colors are from my bh cosmetics 120 eyeshadow palette[2nd edition]. I'll post a link at the end of this post to the website. Their products are really great quality with terrific color payoff at decent prices.
One of my favorite things about this look, is the versatility of it. You can change the intensity of the darkest purple shadow for a more edgy daytime look and change the crease color for a completely different attitude. Unfortunately, since most of the colors were from my palette, I couldn't really take great pictures of the colors, but I did some swatches for you guys to get an idea.

I did my normal foundation routine then used urban decay's primer potions as my eyeshadow primer.
1. place darkest purple on the lid ONLY
2. add the light shimmery purple to crease and blend the 2 colors so there is a gradient effect.
3. pop a small amount of the silver on the inner corner
4. use a neutral eyeshadow as your highlight
5. line your upper eyelid and apply your favorite mascara and a wine colored blush to your cheeks
