Distant Love…5 Relationship tips for long distant lovers!

tumblr_kwq037vyph1qak6kio1_500 Hey there beauty lovers here is a different approach to my normal posts! My boyfriend and I are almost to our anniversary of four years! We are very much in love and happy and it has inspired me to create this post! Since we started dating, my boyfriend and I have been living and going to college in different states and it has definitely been hard, but so worth it. I know many of you have significant others that live way further than an hour or two away but these tips apply to all living apart, or as just dating tips in general! 🙂

1) Be loyal. This one comes as an obvious, but there are a lot of unfaithful people out there. Treat your partner how you would like to be treated. Don’t be flirting, seeing, or talking to any other person behind your lovers back. Be faithful to yours, and be real with them. If you stray or aren’t interested anymore then break it off, cheating  just causes more heart ache on both people’s end. It is a waste of time and effort in a relationship if someone is unhappy enough to cheat.

2) Be open and honest! When there is distance between any relationship, it can call for miscommunication and misunderstanding. Through texting, talking, or whatever you can never really know what are the intentions or tone that your other is speaking with. It is always better to call, or better yet video chat and really communicate fully especially with fighting or serious matters. Let them know how you are feeling, but as well how they are. Distance can cause an emotional toll on people, so it’s good to check in with one another.

3) Don’t freak out over the little stuff. This goes with choosing your battles. If you find yourselves fighting over something positively stupid, then drop it. Ask yourself if the fight your having is really worth the tie and energy in your relationship. Fight the big ones, and loose the ones that are for nothing. Constant bickering on top of distance is a sure way to drift apart.

4) Trust them, not cause them. Trust me, this is a lesson I had to learn. It doesn’t matter how much you trust your love, sometimes when their far away and you don’t talk and see each other as much, your imagination can run wild! You think oh they will find someone better than me, or are at some girls (or boys) house and aren’t staying faithful. This can cause you to panic a little and feel vulnerable. I am saying if they love you and you can trust them then you can learn to calm down. You don’t need to constantly be texting them being like where are you, who are you with, ect. Learn to let go and trust them or it can cause you guys to fight and develop un grounded trust issues.

5) Keep Current. Don’t just text all day long. Spice things up, and loose the boring to word texts! Skype, Instagram, snap chat, late night call, anything to keep up with your loved one. Talking through type only goes so far, but seeing them and hearing them or even getting silly face snap chats really can help you both feel like they never left.

Some Extras!

-My boyfriend and I write each other letters whether they are hand written or on an email. Just knowing they took that extra time to write you something long and sappy really is sweet!

-We are both artists so we draw each other pictures! This is something very personal and thoughtful, if you can’t draw then bake them some food, or play them online in a video game! Get creative!

-Keep a picture. My boyfriend has our prom picture on his desk where he is, and I have one of us together on my night stand. Little ways of remembrance is great for relationships.

-Enjoy the time you have together. If you get a weekend or whatever to see one another, don’t spend it sleeping in late or in a bad mood. Plan ahead and do some fun activities wheat he fit is baking a nice dinner together or getting an espresso and reading some books at Barnes and Nobles the possibilities for bonding are endless!

-Look forward to something. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, big events, vacations, all things you do together! If you have something coming up you are going to do together plan and talk about it and the time from then and the get together will fly by and get you excited! Love each other and listen and you will have a long an amazing time with whomever your heart is with. If you have any questions or comments let me know down below 🙂 Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Long Distance Love…5 Tips & Advice

Makeup of the day! Bold Eyebrows, Eyeliner, & Glossy Lips….HOW TO.

Hey guys, here is another makeup of the day for you! This one…I admit it is pretty intense..but if you would like to re-create it please show me, I would love to see what you guys come up with! I had a lot of fun creating this, I didn’t have any certain inspiration, I mixed a combination of makeup inspired by Mila Kunis,  Amy Winehouse, and Angelina Jolie! Of course, I am not lucky enough to look like any of these, but I combined the effect that their makeup has;  Angelina’s big lips, Mila’s big open eyes, and Amy’s bold cat eye. I am really happy with how it came out…and to be honest took me an hour :p Is that a normal amount of time for makeup? I decided to have bold eyes, mild lips, and skip out on the bronzer and blush, to keep from looking like I am about to join the circus.

This makeup look is built up of layers. I believe that when you layer each shadow and lip shade with a soft hand that the end result is very smokey and light, in stead of one bold shade per feature. The only bronzer I used was to lightly contour my nose, because it is the only feature that makes me self conscious, for I have a very wide-bridged nose 😦 ha ha, but we all have our nit picks :p

If you are interested in the products I used in this look and how to create it, I will list it all below:

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow on my brows! Yes, eye shadow, I have literally tried every brow kit in the world and none of them match the color of my brows! I got a little sample size of this in one of my Ipsy bags! Like this post if you love your monthly bag! And, I became addicted to it, I am definitely going to re-purchase the full eyeshadow when I run out just to use on my eyebrows! I usually apply it with the Elf Angled Studio Brush, it is really dense and perfect for angling your brows! Then I set them with the Elf clear Eyebrow gel.

I used, Mica Cosmetics Black Gel Eyeliner, I also got in an Ipsy bag! Can you tell I am trying to use some sample products up? lol I wet my Elf angled eyeliner brush then dipped it in the gel eyeliner then drew a line up almost to the end of my eyebrow (this is how you will achieve the perfect angled cat eye for the shape of your eyes!) Let me know if you want an eyebrow tutorial as well, I will make a post, pic by pic.

I made me eyes look bigger and brighter by cutting my crease with some brown eyeshadow, you can use any kind! Then blend it out, giving your eyes the smoky look. Then use a highlighting shade, any light tans, whites, or creams will work and pop it onto your brow bone, just under your brow, the corner of your inner eye, and the very middle of you eye lid. If you have some what hooded eyelids like I do, then put your brown crease color somewhat a bit above your natural crease, and then use the brown and shade in a little bit below your natural under eye. This will make your eyes appear much larger, and open!

Then I used my absolutely favorite mascara, I am sure you guys are sick of this but…My Jordana Best Lash Extreme. I will never love another mascara as much as this one, if you want to read my whole blog post about it check for the link below! I applied two generous coats of this on top of my curled lashes. You can also add some falsies if your lashes aren’t very full, or if you are going out clubbing or what not. Then I used my L.A Colors Eye Crayon in Sea Shells on my waterline to make it look like my eyeballs are larger, which is a great dupe for NYX eye crayon in milk, and in my opinion works better and is cheaper!

I used a bit of the same black gel liner on my lower eye lid, but instead of using it to round line my eyes, I dragged the line out in a 130 degree angle, which made my eyes look more cat like.

On my lips, I outlined them with Jordana Lip Liner in Silver Lilac, and drew up a crease in the center of my bottom lip to give the Angelina split lip affect. Then I covered my lips with a bit of nude gloss, and finished them off the some highlighting powder on the middle of each lip, and a bit of highlighter on my cupids bow, this will make the lips appear fuller.

I finished this look off with my foundation. I find it easier to apply my eye makeup first, then my foundation, because if the eye makeup applying process leaves any fallout or smudging, it is easy to clean away then do my foundation rather than try to clean up my eyes after wards.

I used Revlon 110 Color Stay Whipped foundation blended out on my skin with my Sonia Kashuk foundation brush, and covered any blemishes and my under eye circled with my Elf Corrective Concealer in yellow.  Lastly, I set my foundation with my favorite facial powder (Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder in 110) and my Elf Finishing Spray so my makeup doesn’t crawl away over the night :p
