Hot Pink Lips for Spring

When spring time rolls around one of my favorite things to do with my makeup is wear a hot pink lipstick. Here are my favorite products to use to create this look.

MAC Magenta Lip liner
MAC Show Orchid

*I wouldn't wear a lipgloss with this because I think it looks better without gloss, but if you want to use gloss I would use is Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Hot Pink.

Trend Alert: Colored Denim

Spring is just around the corner and if you like me and have an interest in beauty and fashion, you are probably freaking out over some of the trends for this spring. One of my favorite trends that I have seen is colored jeans! I use to be one of those colored jean haters because I thought they looked super tacky, but for some reason I really like them now.

If you're afraid like me, to wear pink, orange, or any of those other daring colors, try and start with something more in your comfort zone. Start with a color like cobalt blue, similar to your go to pair of jeans, just a bit more colorful. Or try more neutral shades, such as olive or brown. Although neutral isn't the big trend for spring, it will still help make you more comfortable about wearing color jeans. 

Quick Tip for Styling
If your jeans are a pastel color, pair them with similar pastels. But, if they are a rich, saturated shade, use colors with a lot of depth.

I'm pretty good at describing scents for the most part, but with this one all I can say is fabulous! You have to go and smell it yourself! Now it is even more easier to smell this perfume because Sephora just started carrying it. I absolutely love the bottle! It is a beautiful light pink shade with an almost jewel liked appearance and it looks amazing sitting on my vanity! So I will now leave you with this description of the scent from the experts.

Official Descriptionn:
"An expression of the modern woman's aura, this scent at once conveys strength and beauty, glamour and confidence. Luminous green top notes join a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli to leave a sensual memory on the skin. For the bottle, the opulence of jewel-colored Venetian Murano glass inspired its faceted design."

Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli

My Life: Valentine's Day

I've put up two posts this  past week that have something to do with Valentine's Day. Some may think I'm going to celebrate that day with someone special. But those of you are wrong. I'm single this V-day and honestly I have no problem with it.

Valentine's Day is on Tuesday, which I will take as just any other ordinary Tuesday. And I suggest that you do the same. The truth is for those people out there that are dating someone it will be like any other Tuesday too. The only different thing is that their going out with the person their dating after going to work or school.

So in short, treat this like any other Tuesday and remember life goes on. So don't dread over just on single day, there is 364 365 (leap year) more left for you to enjoy.

Romantic Braided Updo

Braided buns are super easy to do and take less than 10 minutes. This is a perfect romantic updo for Valentine's Day or any other occasion after it. You know what, who says you have to wear this for a special occasion? You can wear it whenever you want!
You will need:
  • clear hair elastics
  • bobby pins
  • hairspray (optional)
  1. Section your hair off into five braids: three in the back, two in the front. Secure each braid with an elastic at the end.
  2.  Starting with the back, take the first braid and twist into a flat bun against your head, anchoring with bobby pins as you go.
  3. Wrap the next braid against the first, being sure to tuck the elastic out of sight. Secure with more bobby pins.
  4. Repeat Step 3 with the third braid.
  5. Finally, take the two front braids and wrap them around your nearly completed bun, being sure to hide the elastics and securing each braid with plenty more bobby pins.
  6. Finish off with a shot of hairspray to set the style.

My Life: Just January

My name is Audrina && this is my life.

January has gone by so quickly, but hey I'm not complaining! So lets end this month off right by doing an in and out!

  1. My New Lunch Seat- read story down below
  2. Ice Skating- so much fun!
  3. JOEL! -My new friend, who asked me to put him in here!
  4. My New Guy Friend -not Joel. A different one that I may like more than a friend:)
  1. The Girl That Stole My Old Lunch Seat- no comment.
  2. Skating on Road- so summer, not winter.
  3. Don't really have an out that matches Joel- Oh! Onions because we both hate them!
  4. The Troll That My New Guy Friend Use To Date- (BTW: She likes to steal seats)

I know its kind of childish complaining about a seat, but it isn't the seat. It's her! UGHHH! Whatever I love my new seat. Also if it wasn't for her being a big B, he would have never dumped her, she would have never taken my seat and I would have never talked to him. So in the end all I want to say is, thank you troll.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sorry. I just had to let all that out!

Hope you have a fabulous last day of January tomorrow!

Look for Less: Ashley Tisdale

I know I haven't done one of these Look for Less posts in quite sometime, but I will be doing them more frequently.

Ashley was wearing a white sweater dress and black riding boots on January 5th. I love this outfit because it is cute, it keeps you warm and it is very comfortable. What more could you want?

The outfit I came up with is all from Victoria's Secrets website. Both items are currently on sale. The dress I found is almost completely identical to the one Ashley was wearing.

Top 11 Makeup Products of 2011

I tried so many beauty products in 2011. Here are my top 11 products of 2011, leggo!

     1.  Starting off with face products. My number one face product that I have tried and loved should be no surprise to you. It is the CoverGirl Natureluxe Foundation! It feels like your wearing a tinted moisturizer, but your getting the coverage of a foundation.

     2.  The next face product is the MAC ProLongwear Concealer. This covers anything from redness, to acne to under eye circles.

     3. Now for cheeks I loved NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette. This has a great selection of blushes, bronzers and highlighters for a great value and extremely good quality.

     4.  I loved using my MAC Blushbaby Blush. This is my go to color for when I'm not sure what I want to wear on my cheeks. This gives me a gorgeous dusty pink cheek.

     5. Now moving on to eye products. My new found love was gel liner! I tried so many and I have to say the best one was Bobbi Brown Gel Liner! It is very long lasting.
     6. Next would have to be my Urban Decay Naked Palette. It includes so many everyday neutral colors, that are very pigmented.
     7. Another favorite are the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows. They are basically just like colored eye primers. They keep your shadow from creasing and make it appear more vibrant. 
     8. I love to try out different mascaras all the time, but one mascara I kept repurchasing was Maybelline The Falsies Mascara.

     9. Now for the final categories, lip products. For lip balm I am a true fan or EOS in Sweet Mint! My lips love it!

    10. My favorite lipstick that i discovered was MAC Viva Glam V. Great color for everyday, looks great with all skin tones.

  11. Finally number eleven is a lip gloss. It is the MAC Cremesheen Glasses. I love all the colors I have. These are not a new product to MAC but this was the first year I tried them and now I own 4.
