My ‘Holy Grail’ Makeup Items | Spring 2014

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

HOLYGRAIL2014444yoyo

 

*NOT PICTURED* Marcelle Eyeliner in ‘Mulberry’: This eyeliner is literally my go-to and I am wearing it 90% of the time when I’m wearing eyeliner. It’s a lovely, deep purple (appears a soft black on the eye) and is super creamy and long-lasting. Also, it doesn’t break the bank at around eleven dollars!

Nivea Lip Butter in ‘Vanilla Macadamia’: I tried this around this time last year, and haven’t stopped since! It’s amazing, moisturizing, deliciously scented, and only three bucks! I’ve already gone through two of these, and am on my third!

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I think everybody needs a break from shimmery shadows now and then, and this palette is fabulous for just that. It creates flawless matte looks, and is super versatile. For example, the shade ‘W.O.S’ is perfect for a highlight, ‘Crave’ makes a great eyeliner in a pinch, and ‘Naked2′ is an awesome crease/transition shade. It’s also less then the normal Naked palette my over half!

Benefit Dandelion Lipgloss: I was gifted this little guy for my birthday in December (thanks, mom!) and it’s marvellous. It is a soft light pink (basically clear) but it’s amazing at giving shine, added moisture, smells amazing and is not sticky at all.

Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium: ‘Gimme Brow’ is perfect at exactly it’s name, giving me more brow. It tames and sets the brow, but also adds colour.

Marcelle Eyebrow Pen: This eyebrow pen and the ‘Gimme Brow’ are the perfect brow duo! The eyebrow marker works wonders at filling in sparse spots, and to shape them.

Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in ‘Lovelorn’: This lipstick was not only my first Mac lipstick, but my first ever Mac purchase and I love it! It’s a great pink colour that just adds enough colour to amp up your natural lips.

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio in ‘Walking on Eggshells’: For three dollars, I wasn’t expecting much from this little guy, but I’m so happy it proved my wrong! The eyelid shade is awesome, I’m literally wearing it on my eyes as I write this. It’s so amazing, silky, and pigmented, for three bucks it’s a steal!

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in ‘Vanilla’: This was also in my March Favourites (Read it here: http://thecutelittlebeautyblog.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/march-favourites-2014/) and it’s great. It works amazingly at hiding dark circles and blemishes, doesn’t settle into fine lines and is long lasting. They also have an awesome colour range so everyone can find their perfect match!

Hope you enjoyed my ‘Holy Grail’ makeup items, and comment down below YOUR fav makeup items!

“Get to Know Me” | TAG | Spring 2014

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

I was tagged a few months back by the lovely http://chloinmind.wordpress.com/ and have finally decided to do it! It’s really fun and has some great questions, so let’s begin!

GettoknowmeTAG

Is your hair naturally curly or straight? My hair is naturally curly, and frizzy. I love curly hair but it can get quite knotty and tangled!

Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it? I think this is referring to fashion, in which I change my style up quite a bit! Sometimes I’m in more of a floral feel, but other times I’m feeling edgy and punk.

How often do you change your nail polish? I usually change my nail polish up twice a week!

How long does it take for you to put on makeup? It takes me about 15-20 minutes to put on my makeup on in the morning!

What do you do first? Face or eyes? I do my eyes first, as all I wear on my face is concealer and powder.

How often do you wear false eyelashes? I’ve only warn them once, so very rarely!

Do you do a full face of makeup every day? No, I don’t even own foundation! But I do usually wear full eye makeup.

Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family? Usually no, however sometimes I like to experiment crazy looks!

How many high-end products do you have? Hmmm, I don’t really know!

How often do you change your handbag? Every few months!

What time do you wake up and go to sleep? I usually go to sleep around 9-10 pm and wakeup up at 6:33 (Yes, that exact time!)

Left handed or right handed? I’m a righty ;)

How tall are you? Right now I’m 5’4 and a half (But being a teen, I’m still growing!)

How many pets do you have? I have four! I have three chihuahuas and one cat.

How do you blog? This question slightly confuses me, but I blog by writing something that I think of, taking pictures, then posting it!

Do you read comments posted on blogs? Yes!

How did you come up with your blog name? I was really stumped about a name and then this just suddenly came to me!

What kind of camera do you use for your photographs? I use my iPhone 4!

What’s your favourite colour? I don’t have one favourite colour, I have many!: Blush, mint, peach, burgundy, lilac, and turquoise.

Hope you enjoyed this tag!

#2014BloggerChallenge Topic 8 | Spring OOTD

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Today is topic eight of the #2014BloggerChallenge! And just a quickie side note- I couldn’t participate in the last two topics, as I was completely swamped and thus unmotivated to do the post, so I decided to forgo them instead of two posts lacking quality! Alas, here is my Spring outfit of the day, that I just adore!

(All clickable links!) | Tank-Garage | Cardigan- Urban Planet | Leggings- H&M 

This outfit is the epitome of classy and simple. It ties in spring with a floral tank that almost gives off a tropical vibe with the colour scheme, and the lightweight black cardigan and leggings make everything look effortless and chic. One thing I also adore, is that I’ve tucked in the tank to give the illusion of a bodysuit, so it looks sleek. Overall, I think just a simple addition to your wardrobe (Like a floral tank!) can totally change your wardrobe for the warmer weather!

Hope you enjoyed my ootd!

April Clothing Wishlist | Spring 2014 |

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Sorry I haven’t posted in the past few days, I was going to but then time got the best of me!

AprilClothingWishlist2014

(These are all clickable links!) Joggers-Forever21 | Floral Shorts-Forever21 | Floral Top-Forever21 | Crop Top-Brandy Melville | YingYang Top-Brandy Melville  | Shoes-Toms  |

I’ve been craving some new wardrobe pieces for the spring/summer so naturally a wishlist is in order! First up, are these floral joggers from Forever 21. I just think they’re so fashionable and look so comfortable and they look perfect for lazy days. Next up, is a crop top from Brandy Melville that is just so chill and perfect for summer days. Also from Forever 21 are some pyjama-inspired shorts that I think are just oh-so fabulous and pretty. Now with floral on the mind, this 3/4 length sleeve floral shirt just screams spring and I think it’s so beautiful! It’d be perfect to pair with some dark wash jeans or black leggings. Other than floral, another trend I adore is palm trees, so when I saw these palm tree Toms I literally stopped in my tracks. They’d be so perfect! And lastly, I have a muscle tee from Brandy Melville that has the perfect doses of femininity and grunge.

Hope you enjoyed my clothing wishlist and tell me below what’s on YOUR wishlist!

Hair & Skincare Haul | EOS, Olay, Marcelle, & More! | Spring 2014 |

Hey There Beauty Cuties!

Springtime is here, and so is a new haul! This one focuses on skincare and haircare, but look out because a makeup haul is on it’s way as well!

Spring2014HairandSkincareHaul

First off, is my Hask Monoi Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner. I saw on the Hask website they had a new ‘Monoi’ line and was ecstatic. But, I didn’t know how I would get my hands on it. I even tweeted Hask! So I was so happily surprised to find that the ‘Monoi’ line was at my local Wal-mart! I’m really excited to try this and I hope it erases some of the damage from my hair. Next up, is a newer product released in the Olay Fresh Effects line and it is a facial moisturizing sunscreen, which I think will be totally fab for the spring and summer (And in case you were wondering, it’s SPF 15). This next product is a re-purchase as I completely used my last one up, and it is the Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream Kiss. It smells magnificent and is the best lip balm I’ve found to date!

The ‘Body Envy’ line from Herbal Essences is my favourite Herbal Essences line. So of course when I saw it came in body wash form I couldn’t resist! And I found it at a great time too, I just finished my B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar Shower Gel. Also on the shower spectrum, I found this adorable travel sized EOS shave cream and just couldn’t say no, especially with it’s one dollar price tag! It also smells delicious (it’s pomegranate and raspberry!). Now talking more skincare, I was sent the ‘Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel’ by Marcelle, and I’m really excited to try it! It seems to be perfect for my sensitive/combination skin. Lastly, I decided to get a cucumber peel off mask from Freeman.

Hope you enjoyed my haul and comment below your fav product I got!

My Fav Outfit’s I’ve Created on Polyvore #1 | Spring 2014

Hey There beauty Cuties!

I love social media (Can I get a whoop whoop?!) so it was only logical to get Polyvore! If you’re unaware of Polyvore its basically a site where you can put outfits together, then see where everything is from. I think it’s really fun, and I decided I’d share some of my favourite outfits I’ve created with you. If you’re interested in seeing where any items are from or looking at other outfits, check out my Polyvore here: http://thecutelittlebeautyblogger.polyvore.com

 

This first look is the epitome of festival chic, and I absolutely adore it. The outfit itself is oh-so summer with the oversized palm tree sweater and denim shorts, but the flower crown and tie-dye backpack totally add that festival vibe to the look!

This look is one of my favs, and I adore it’s uniqueness. The crop top is so modern and sleek, while the ombre crochet shorts make it more casual and laid back. Pair it with diamond shaped studs and a floral phone case and you’re ready to have a great day shopping or sightseeing!

The yin yang top make it totally hippie chic, while the shorts add femininity. Keep it simple with studs and sandals, and you’re ready for whatever summer throws at ya!

This has to be my favourite out of all of them, and is also the most simple. The floral sweater is so modern and feminine, while the high waisted shorts just add to the already awesome vibe! I think it’s super simple but also super fab.

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.46.58 PM

This last look is totally casual and laid back, perfect for lazy summer days. Keepin’ it simple with a palm tree muscle tank and denim shorts, paired with round sunglasses plus converses gives a super fab and chill vibe.

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 4.47.03 PM

Hope you enjoyed and comment below which outfit was your fav!
