Seasonal Inspiration: Fall!

bbeff0b13c258aed2acae3897d81cca4

Anyone else love fall, more than any other season? Every year the second the air starts to turn slightly chilly and the leaves change color, I am ready for the fall! I look forward to big comfy sweaters, hot apple cider, and deep colored lipsticks. As well fall is my favorite season to dress for, as well as apply my makeup. For me summer is way too hot, and I just wanna be in shorts and a tank top with my hair back in a top knot. WInter here in New England calls for a puffer jacket and boots..All in all the fall season is just right and seems to be the perfect season for layering, wearing romantic colors, and being comfortable.

To kick off the new season one of my favorite things to do is troll around Pinterest and see what the latest seasonal makeup looks and fashion styles are. ere is some things I found I wanted to share in hopes it will ignite you fall mood as well! Plus a couple extra fun things I found…I swear I could be on Pinterest for hours at a time it!

Here are some rich colors I found, these girls have gorgeous hair! I love warm drown mixed in with blonde layers as well as bright red stripes on brunettes.

Some pretty fall outfit ideas:

I love the mixture of this deep wine colored shirt, coffee scarf, and tan belt, these colors layered together looks just like the season and color changes of the trees. This kind of look would be perfect with a deep plum colored lipstick for the more daring makeup appliers.

This is a nice and easy look to put together. Especially when it’s chilly outside it is so comfy to just through on layers and leggings with boots. This is a cute look but will also keep the mood casual for school or just going out. The wool socks peeking out is a cute touch, as well as an interesting pendant to dress up the whole look.

Black leather looking boots and leggings are so sexy and flattering! For those darker nights or going out to dinner this vampy look is just plain gorgeous with a bit of edge. Her hair let loose and wavy with the black sun glasses is very classy looking, I just love this whole ensemble.

I love these boots! They are from UGG of course, but they have a nice different quality about them. They look like the perfect mixture between moccasins and regular UGG boots without the classic fur. Included below is a link incase you want to check them out further!

These laced up wedge boots are adorable. They give off the same appeal as regular leather looking boots sept the wedge gives you an added couple of inches that will elongate your legs! This style of boot also makes your feet tend to look smaller, as well wedges are a lot easier to walk in as appose to heels!

Some Funky Fall Nail Polishes:

206555f82639bb5978f48b746fa7077e

Deep plum colors are a fall must have as far as nail polishes go! The cool tone and dark finish is great for a fall color choice.

d278d45843427ed677295e611b624278

This matte royal blue polish is so regal and looks great with pale skin. I know personally I have very pale skin and burgundy fall colors don’t look very good with my skin tone; a color like this is a perfect option to bring out cool undertones in your skin!

Gorgeous Eye looks To Inspire you:

5fab914706843fd8fe68b545041f94a5

Sparkling coffee eyeshadow that will compliment any eye color. This eye is very wearable for a daytime look or a fancier outing you have to attend.

2c6c5c28e56aadd419273dac975a1744

This look is beautiful! I love how how the light reflects off of this deep chocolate colored eyelid with slight twinges of gold and amber. This is a classic fall evening look.

Just for fun I thought I would share some fun fall goodies!

This Tinker Bell pumpkin is sooooo cute! I could never pull off something this great but I would like to try perhaps this Halloween.

Black toffee apples! These look pretty cool, very Maleficent inspired. These would be great for a different treat to bring to a party “Poisoned Toffee Apples”

MKGLAM VOXBOX!

I received my MKGLAM VOXBOX! I have always wanted to try out Mary Kay Cosmetics, but was never lucky enough to get the chance to test any products from them out. When I received this box I was elated to try out all this wonderful makeup! Mary Kay makeup always intrigues me, I thought it was honestly for more adult women, but when I tried out all these pieces, boy was I wrong!

First things first, the packaging of the makeup sent to me was so adorable! Besides the cute chocolate brown and candy pink box clearly labeled Mary Kay, inside was a slew of baby pink tissue with a happy Hello! greeting inside the lid of the box. It is so lovely to see a company that puts a lot of pride into even the handling of their products. As well, came a card explaining all the goodies I got in my VoxBox.

Below are pictures and captions showing you all the great products as well as my honest first impressions!

The adorable pink and brown packaging...

This is the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. I love this color! It is great for a nice pop of color but doesn't go on too opaque. I like that it is a lighter lip gloss tint and I don't have to worry about it being to intense. This lipgloss has a nice applicator and finishes nice and glossy without any stickiness.

Here is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/ Concealer Brush, Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder, and the Mary Kay Powder Brush. To be honest, the brushes have some fallout, but it is minimal. The concealer brush is great for under eye circles and blemishes. As well the loose powder has been amazing for summer when I want to set my foundation and doesn't leave a cakey look. I love to use this with the powder brush included, it gives my skin a nice porcelain soft texture.

This is the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush and the Mary Kay Bronzing Powder. These two products go hand in hand with one another. These by far are my favorite products from the box. Together they remind me of Nars Laguna Bronzer and blush set. They are very pigmented and are perfect for a pretty flush pink and sun-kissed contour.

Here is the Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in I love Black. Just a coat of this mascara really does lift and separate your lashes without causing them to be clumpy or weighed down. I would definetly compare the quality of this to a higher end mascara and would recommend it for people who want a lengthening mascara!

I can honestly say that receiving this box really has opened my eyes and heart to Mary Kay Cosmetics. I have used and really enjoyed every product I was sent. I have definitely added some of these items such as the blush and translucent powder to my everyday makeup routine items. If you have not checked out their makeup before, I would definitely recommend giving them a try. Their company cares a lot about their customers and show that clearly through their care with packaging, service, and products.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below! Or if you received this box as well let me know which products you liked or have been using the most! As always, Love Pearlsnheels ❤

Falling in love with Fall & Winter: 5 Looks for this Season!

IMG_20131006_135146

  Hey loveys, I decided to compile the best fall fashion styles, makeup, and hair looks for this upcoming season! Here in New England especially fall and winter are a time for packing away the shorts and flip flops and dragging out the old dumpy sweaters! BUT ladies, just because it’s cold doesn’t mean our fashion must fail. SO here are the best of the best fall and winter looks, so with the start of the cold weather you can transition in style. I will say you should still keep warm and comfy, but don’t need a snow suit :p

Let’s look at the hair! Fall is great to get funky with the braids and up dos, set let’s get fancy!

730754998bcf48194c09233a0c6a0b35

Whimsical and pretty! Here is a sweet style for medium hair lengths pulled back with a sweet head band.

17d9ed445e413b1877f8ec7e707b41a9

 Love this fresh faced look, complimented by and easy hair do! You get to see the nice length of the hair, but the bangs are twisted back to showcase your makeup!

40ea05cb620d4681be08195bad7dadd9

Great for those bad hair days! A simple fix with a cute bow!

2e6e655ad7b01320e96073226a9bc816

Beautiful and braided! If you have the time a french braid can really dress up your look.

e0a8518752476ce6923739b4e2b52bbc

A cozy cap can be so warm and perfect for those winter days when you have no time to wash your hair!

Let’s get dressed up, warm, and stylish. YES WARM AND STYLISH! 

3edd7b7daa205a144e8f6648c24d2e3e

What a smart looking outfit for the transition from fall in to winter. I love the dark jeans, leather boots, and a classy jacket is perfect for a complete look in the cold.

bb5cd644f216874a392fd305ab9e1a43

I am in love with this ensemble. A nude knit sweater turtle neck and a wine colored skirt is very romantic is feminine looking.

7e8f946e7911d64c57fc4382c91e81a8

For a girl tough to the cold, some cute pink Uggs and tights look adorable!

90536e0abb9f4b21185569a0fbe55b5b

I hate winter jackets! They are usually full of fluff and fattening looking. You can stay warm without all the padding, and settle for a nicer long jacket, this one has a particularly gorgeous violet color.

16017e0bd52c57e173bdf08ebed58082

Lovely textures! A snowy white long sleeve and vintage pattern skirt! I love the statement necklace on top as well.

Your nails get cold too! Better coverup! Here are some warming winter colors!

849ee17bcacf667f6a03c0e20b4bc184

Square and dark, love the deep blood red color. Very Vampy.

Glitter and periwinkle attack! Very magical and a great color combo!

a95c3281eac85bcf48d9836c636e1728

This color is great! It is a witchy green, that is a great complementary color for all skin tones!

& For my favorite the winter and fall makeup looks!

19ba5dd278f1561af4e7a2edc3fbac13

Bold brows, and burnt cranberry eyes. This is a very vampire inspired eye, with a fierce and fiery twist.

b3687b91643276950370bc18f7ffde69

Great sparkling pumpkin look! This is a sweet eye look that pulls together all the colors of foliage and adds some special glitter.

49a99d084676b2f5a0f57bf6e798da5bGreat glamour look using greens and a highlight color. This would be beautiful for green and brown eyes.

ab572cf9e1f0047f21f19b6ec7381465

Yup, I dropped a photo of Miley. I know, I know Judge fest lol But I love her makeup her! There is something timelessly classic about a ruby lip and great lashes.

efc58b1e14c3708ee657c5db40248b04

A shimmery nude look is perfect for the everyday makeup wearer. This image is great because it shows you witch shadows to use where. This look really widens the eye and can go with any outfit.

That’s it for now, hope you enjoyed seeing what inspires my fall and winter wardrobe. Basically its a nice mix of classy taupes with pops of color! All images I got from Pinterest, it is a great site for fashion and makeup inspiration. You can check out my Pinterest here ! 🙂

Luscious Cranberry Lips! A glossy review.

wpid-20131007_190241.jpg

Hey babes, so yet another review. This one is on a beautiful lipgloss stain, I recently got and tried out from Ageless Derma. My shade is in cranberry, I chose this color from the many great colors they have on their website http://www.agelessderma.com/lipgloss.aspx

wpid-20131007_190127.jpg

They have twelve beautiful shades to choose from, and also contain many natural enriched beauty skin products and makeup! They have a great set up on their site and  sell great products, for good prices, and you feel good using.

wpid-20131007_190027.jpg

This lipgloss in particular I feel is more of a glossy stein, because one application is all you need! If the lip gloss comes off some what throughout the day, which it lasts pretty long, it leaves the color stained on your lips in a beautiful matte shade. Cranberry, the shade I chose really compliments my fair skin tone, and has incredible color payoff. The best way to apply this lipgloss is with a lipstick brush, so you don’t stain your finger tips lol It also has a great smooth satin finish on your lips.

The consistency is just right, it is not chunky, or too liquidy. It is a nice creamy texture but make sure to keep the container somewhere cool because to tends to melt in high heat. It is a great lip product to have, and has become one of my go to lip products for fall 🙂

wpid-20131007_185946.jpg

wpid-20131007_185956.jpg

The packaging as you can see if very cute! It comes in a cute little black box, lined with a lilac purple interior. The lipgloss is a great size as well, I am actually more partial to the circle containers, than the tubes, so I am loving this packaging!

Check out their site, they have a lot of great natural beauty products, and is definitely a diamond in the rough site to find!

Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Let’s Get Intense.. Circle Lenses Review

Hey loves, I know I have been MIA. BUT, I had a good reason. A few weeks ago I wanted to get circle lenses SO BADLY! I mean don’t we all want bigger eyes? If you don’t know circle lenses are..they can come in prescription and nonprescription.  They are colored lenses that are usually bigger in diameter than most contacts. The ones I am wearing are 15mm in diameter contacts, where as my usual size is about 14 mm. There are a lot of benefits to circle lenses, such as they can make your eyes appear larger, there are more styles and colors to choose from, and there is no prescription needed to order them! SO I have been wearing them for 2 weeks now and really giving them a go, to serve you up my own most honest opinion and review of them! 😀

wpid-20131011_144821.jpg

When you visit you optometrist, if you wear contacts, can recommend some colored contacts in the same brand that you already wear that are CRAZY EXPENSIVE. Yes, they have a range of colors that are all somewhat natural looking, and the most exciting color is light purple, and 3 pair will charge $175. Which is ridiculous. Being the cheepo I am I decided I was not going to pay that for colored contacts…I mean aren’t they just pieces of plastic you use and discard?! So naturally I googled. I found http://www.thedollyeye.com, and I read multiple reviews myself to see what their rep was. They are amazing contacts, that I have really grown to be in love with! Their site apart from contacts, has other beauty products as well, and is definitely worth checking out. Under the circle lenses tab, is where the fun begins!

They have so many colors, styles, themed, and sizes, and prescription/non-perscription lenses to choose from! The biggest challenge is figuring out from all the kinds which ones you want to buy, they are all wicked cool! I wanted like 20 pairs, for real :p On their site they also have links to pictures taken by real people wearing them so you can see better what they will look like in person, which is great.  AND they are only around  $25 per pair which is way better than the actual recommended ones from your doctor. In most cases always go to your doctor first, but in this case, I have been wearing contacts for 7 plus years now, and have tried many different contacts and brands, and as long as you buy them from a reliable source, know your script number, and use them correctly you are golden!

wpid-20131018_005610.jpg

As you can see, this is what you get when you order your contacts! Two vials containing your contacts in solution, I bought the Twilight Green ones, because I already have green eyes and wanted a more fun intense green look! Mine are in a -3.75 prescription, as you can see on the lid, and they even give you a little carrying lens case to keep them in. So to be honest, you have to get used to them…at first if you already where contacts you know the drill, don’t sleep in contacts, keep them clean in refreshed daily solution, ect. Circle lenses however, since they are much larger, deprive your eyes of more oxygen. With this being said, NEVER sleep in these contacts. Regular contacts you can get away with this once in a while, but which such a large contact lens, this can really harm and damage your eyes while you sleep. It is pretty much eye murder by means of suffocation lol

wpid-20131013_183352.jpg

When you first get them, take them remove them from the vile, by unscrewing the sharp (be careful) metal caping mechanism, and poor them into the lens carrying case and fill with fresh solution. If you have never warn contacts you can buy the solution at Target or anywhere for $3. It is hard to explain, but if you don’t know how to put a contact lens in, Youtube a video of it. Basically, what I do is gently pull down the lower lid, with head tipped somewhat down, and apply it to your eye while looking up, so you don’t touch your pupil, then let go and roll your eyes around till the contacts adjust to your pupil. If there is a lot of discomfort at first make sure they are clean, not bent, and are not in folded backwards, ha ha this happens sometimes…

AT FIRST, I got somewhat of a head ache…but naturally your body needs time to adjust to new things…as if you had a caffein headache. But after I got used to them, I have been absolutely loving them! 🙂 Mine are really intense but that’s just my style, but they have natural ones on their site as well! I recommend only wearing them for a bit when you start out, not to add stress on your sensitive eyes! Start off by wearing them for 6 hours maximum, and see how they feel. I don’t wear mine all day long, everyday. I wear them as more of a special thing, when I am going out, or want a dressed up look. I have gotten so many complements from people on these colored ones, it makes me just want more kinds. They are fun, and unique, and can really switch up your look. They are also great for people like me, who are always trying to make their eyes look bigger or more enhanced.

wpid-20131011_144929.jpg

I love pairing these lenses with lots of eyeliner and mascara, even false lashes, to really play them up and give them that Barbie Doll look, I mean why not? I suggest if you want them to look more natural, pick a color somewhat close to your eye color. If you want natural looking blue eyes, but have dark brown ones normally, it will be a little difficult for you can slightly see your natural eye color underneath the pupil opening in the lens, but only if someone was really looking. I have been wearing them for a couple weeks now, and completely in love, they are just that interesting pop to my makeup looks! I suggest giving them a try since they are so affordable, and you can really choose whatever ones fit your life best 🙂 You can find them at http://www.thedollyeye.com

Here is an example of a makeup look I rocked to enhance the color of the contacts, since they are green I chose a warm gold tone 🙂 You can see my own green eyes a bit, but it is not so noticeable in person, I love love love these bad boys! :p

wpid-20131011_145349.jpgIf you guys have any questions about the wear of these or my thought on them please post in the comments below! I love hearing your feedback 🙂 Please stay tuned for more posts, I am trying to schedule a time to post more regularly. Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

What’s in my September 2013 Ipsy bag?!

Hey there! Sorry this is very belated, for some reason my bag took forever to come in the mail! I was excited to see what this bag would be like because the sneak peaks were so tempting!

First things first-The card in the inside! These are always fun to look at first because they show you what the theme for the bag is, and for this September month it is classy! And of course the back shows a bunch of coupons, and products that you get in the bag.

wpid-20130918_223959.jpgThen something new! In this month’s bag you get a foldout diagram of Michelle Phan‘s new makeup palette design with different shades and colors, and get a sneak peek into the collection. AND not even counted as a product in the bag, you get a bunch of little sample eyeshadow and blush in the bottom of this fold out! SWEET! I am actually very excited to create a look with this, and post about it! It is an example of her LIFE PALETTE.

wpid-20130918_224046.jpg

Below you can see an exaple of this giant pallete she came up with!

wpid-20130918_224130.jpg

Here is the little diagram below that comes with the fold out! It shows you exactly how to re create her makeup look and what shades to use where. Above you will  the little sample at the bottom right, these are the colors you get! There is a couple eyeshadow shades and a cheek color to try out a natural makeup look with.
wpid-20130918_224155.jpg

Next, is the bag! BUM BUM BUM! I get so excited each month to see the bags because they are great to have lying around my room to through jewelry or makeup in on the go! This week you get a classy royal blue bag with lace on the outside which is simple adorable!

wpid-20130918_225801.jpg

Below is a picture of the bag and all the goodies that I received! 😀

wpid-20130918_224307.jpg

The first product I received is the London Butter Nail polish in La Moss. I was so flippin’ excited to get nail polish in this bag, especially this brand because I have never owned a polish from them before and they are pretty pricey! The color I got was a deep blood red color and is so gorgeous for fall I was so happy to get this color that I immediately painted my nails with it in the picture below O.o

wpid-20130918_224854.jpg

wpid-20130918_224731.jpg

wpid-20130919_000311.jpg

Next is this gorgeous Cailyn Lip Tint in BIG APPLE, gosh I remember in a past Ipsy bag I received a purple eyeliner in this brand and I was so excited when I got this lip color as well! I love that they all come with little brushes in the top as well :p

wpid-20130918_225107.jpg

wpid-20130918_225331.jpg

The next product is the Star Looks Black Eyeliner pencil in Obsidian k01. I have already used this and can say I love it. It doesn’t smudge down your eyes throughout the day, and is actually very black pigmented and high quality.

wpid-20130918_225005.jpg

Next is the Nyx Eyeshadow in Morocco. This shadow is OKAY…I will have to give it another chance and try it out on my eyes, but when I swatched it, it took me rubbing my finger 4 times in the shadow to even have color show up…which is strange because their blush is pretty well pigmented and this eyeshadow looks dark so you would think it would show up dark not just light gray shadow. If you guys have any thoughts on this shadow let me know if it worked out better for you?

wpid-20130918_225425.jpg

wpid-20130918_225347.jpg

Next is this Elizabeth Mott, Mascara Sample which I have used and it is actually a really nice mascara! I like the length and thinness of the wand and it did not make my lashes clumpy at all! 🙂

wpid-20130918_225220.jpg

That’s it for the products I got in this month’s Ipsy bag. I was really satisfied with what I got this month, I think it was one of the best bags by far! I am excited to use Michelle’s new makeup and try out the Cailyn lip tint. If you guys love this bag or got different products than I did, let me know how you like them! I love to hear from you guys. Thank you so much for reading and Love Always Pearlsnheels ❤

Tips to Surviving Commuting to College!

Okay…this is not a beauty post…but in my personal experience with being a college kid commuting back and forth from home to school, these simple tricks and changes really have made college easier on me! :0 I am half way done with college and so far, it has definitely been a challenge commuting! Part of my really wishes I were living on campus, but it is not really in the cards for me and can’t reason with my self to spend 10 k extra each year to live in a 2 by 2 dorm instead of my nice big comfy room back home. I shouldnt complain it’s only a 30 minute commute, but one of the hardest things about traveling to college, is that I still feel like I am in high school. I wake up early…go to school and come home :/ I don’t feel like a college kid being all social and having fun, but hay it’s the life of a full time college commuter with 2 jobs lol. Any commuters out there finding it is hard to make friends? Sure I have many friends in my classes and I am pretty social, but it is not like I go out and explore campus with the girls, go get dinner, or what not…I go home to my family :/ But, all in all I am saving money, and really focusing on school over a social life I guess. What are you guy’s experiences with being a college commuter?

439f5080bb9d0a22159163e9f6f2459f

Here are some Tips!

  • Time Management! Theee most important tip. Get an agenda…write down all your classes, homework, assignments and get organized. There is no way you can manage college properly without having a managed schedule, especially if you work or internship as well.
  • Be Prepared. I always make sure, the night before each school day I have my clothes laid out with my backpack and purse, filled with everything I need for the day. DO bring assignments and extra paper, Don’t bring your whole room in your bag! I learned this the hard way…I would be traveling across campus on buses with a purse, lunch bag, art portfolio, backpack, plus other crap. Simplify your belongings as much as you can! If you can find a locker or are given one, use that opportunity! Store whatever you don’t need at home, and any heavy textbooks you can leave at school so they aren’t weighing you down. Remember to lock your locker, people are devious…See if you can share textbooks with your friends, this will save money, and weight in your bag! Being a commuter, you may not have time to go to your car or home, so what you have on you is what you are carrying all day long. ca934612c81b8d822b0f6021564e5b0d
  • Planning for weather can be a life saver…keeping a pair of rain boots and an umbrella in your car or locker just in case can change a day of soaking wet paints and scary hair into an okay walk across campus in the rain :p
  • Save Money. College is expensive enough already. You can really save money in little ways that add up to a lot. If you are driving in to school, consider car pooling. The parking spot fee and gas can break the bank, so see if there is a car pooling discount and drive in with your buddies!
  • Love Coffee? Skip Starbucks…Even Dunks is cheaper, or invest in a coffee maker…Trust me $7 Java Ship Fraps add up….If you love energy drinks, don’t spend $4 at a vending machine on campus, buy them at home where you can find them cheap at a store.
  • Packing a Lunch. If you don’t having a meal plan like other college kids…pack a lunch. I know it is totally middle school but buying food from your school’s cafeteria everyday will make you poor. Just throwing some fruit, chips, and sandwich in your bag and maybe a red bull will definitely be worth it.
  • Bring water and Chapstick…for some reason those are the best two things I have in my bag…I ALWAYS NEED THEM lol
  • Use your breaks wisely. If you have any breaks between your classes, work on some homework. Because I commute, I don’t want to do anything when I get home lol So on my breaks I snack and work on any homework, so when I get home I can mostly just relax and not worry about anything else! Besides, when you’re at school they have all the resources you need like the library, computers, and workspaces.
  • Give yourself time in the morning…Nobody likes being the smell kid in class who forgot to print out their paper on the day it was due….Give yourself enough time to gather your school stuff, print out a paper last minute, wash your face and brush your teeth. Trust me it relieves a lot of stress knowing you are prepared, looking somewhat decent, and have all your homework. This goes a long with sleep…driving, commuting, going across campus take energy not to mention actual class…being well rested, somewhat, is a must. 0c07a7577343de766dc0c8ee26f9aa06
  • Have Fun. Commuting and making friends can be tough…Look into your school and check out some clubs, events, and activities. Even getting a work credit, is a way to meet other students and earn some cash! Attending on campus sports events, fairs, and clubs or music groups will help you get out there and enjoy college without living at college.
