A Time of Need.

This post, is the first since I have come back from my hiatus. This post is not fashion/beauty related, and is more serious, to which deserves to be handled with respect, and appropriateness.

This morning I woke up to see the tragedy that is now known as the Las Vegas Shooting. It occurred at Las Vegas outside of Mandalay Bay, on October 1st at night.

It is heartbreaking watching the news, and having to write this. Las Vegas has always been a place that families go to, to experience first times, to gamble, and be the Disneyland for adults. To see this tragedy occur with 59 deaths and counting, is devastating and heartbreaking.

If you live anywhere near Las Vegas, we all encourage you to find a place where you can donate blood to those in need. If you live in other parts of the United States, or in other countries and want to help in any way, please donate what ever you can to the official Las Vegas Victim’s Fund here: Las Vegas Victim Fund’s Go Fund Me

Let’s end terror, together. Please spread happiness and love, and also please help these victims in any way you can.

I’m back!

Hi everybody,

I am back, I am so sorry I keep leaving this blog hanging, I am working on my YouTube a lot lately because I have been trying to make some money being a creator, and have lost ideas for this blog. But I am back, and I am actually in the process of making a new  blog onto other platforms as well, including weebly, to make myself look even more professional.

I wanted to fill you guys in on some things that have been happening including me becoming a social ambassador for five amazing brands! Waiiola, Jolie Beauty UK, Mikasa Beauty, For Earth For All, and Sand Cloud. I have created a new business email for my youtube channel so if you want to sponsor a video or talk business with me for my channel, email spbeauty323biz@gmail.com , if you want to talk business for this blog email complicatedfashionbiz@gmail.com .

I feel bad that I have ditched this blog, because I do still have a strong love for this blog because this is where I got my start in the beauty and fashion world, even though I have a long way to go.

I also did create a new blog on weebly made strictly for makeup only, and I am trying to go onto other platforms so I can try to make some income for myself and my family, but I will still post on wordpress as much as I can.

Review on Kat Von D’s Alchemist Holographic Palette

First of all, I do not own this palette, but I have swatched and applied the palette on while at Sephora and I have seen beauty gurus reviewing this product and decided to put my opinion out there as well. I am not saying my opinion is better or any of that, but this is another opinion for you all to read about before possibly purchasing this item.

I did like it as a highlighter, I used the purple color, and I used my finger to apply these items to my face and my finger didn’t have any other product on it beforehand. I put the green and other colors onto my lid and each color just looked white, they didn’t have anything super special about them. It looked like the white shadow I use for my inner corner highlight. The purple wasn’t purple either, however it was more silver and closer to holo than the other colors.

I definitely think that this palette isn’t holographic but I think it is more of a highlight palette than an eyeshadow/cheek palette. If you don’t know what holographic things are, I recommend you go to SimplyNailogical’s channel on youtube, she talks about holographic nail polish a lot on her channel and likes to play with those polishes on that channel.

But, I think this was actually the first product I haven’t liked and reviewed on this blog! But of course, make sure to go watch other beauty gurus on youtube and read more reviews on this palette and trust your judgement about if this product is worth your purchase or not.

Review: E.L.F Perfect Blend Concealer

Hi everyone,

Welcome to today’s post. I was at a loss for ideas so I decided to write a review because I haven’t done one in a while. 

Today I decided to review this concealer because it’s the best concealer I’ve used. I’ve used high end brands that don’t work as well as this concealer and this concealer is two dollars! 

I really like the fact that the apricot beige color smells like apricot. And I like how easy it is to blend and how much coverage it gives me while it’s on my face. The only problem I don’t really like is that you have to replace it after maybe twelve uses, then it starts to get empty, I used t until that point and I even had to scrape the sides to get more product out of it.

I do recommend this concealer because of how well it works and how inexpensive it is. You can find this any place that sells elf products. I got my second one yesterday at target. 
I hope you guys enjoyed this product review, make sure to like and subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already

DIY Lancome Rose Blush Highlighter

Hi everyone,

I told you I got a lot of ideas for DIYs, this one was inspired by YouTube. I love watching fellow beauty gurus on YouTube review new products and test viral products. This product went viral and after watching the videos about this product, I understand why.

For those of you who don’t know what this product is, it’s a blush highlight, which means it’s a highlighter but it has a pinkish pigment which can give you a blush look, and it’s known for the pink rose in the center. When I first saw this product, I immediately assumed the rose was the product, and kept thinking ‘wow this product is too pretty to use!” Well I thought wrong…

This product has highlight formula on the flower petals and from the weight of the product it definitely doesn’t have a lot of it. The price is also $60, I got this idea from YouTuber Nicole Skyes who I love watching, her video will be below if you guys want to check her channel out.

In this DIY you will be learning how to make your own, inexpensive rose highlighter.

Materials:

  • 1 Bowl to put the finished product in, it can be any size and any color.
  • 1 fake rose or flower, you can get this at any craft store (even the dollar store!)
  • Makeup setting spray (can be any brand you want)
  • Inexpensive highlighter(s)
  • 1 paint brush, any size
  • 1 bowl to hold the product in while you prepare the rose
  1. First you’re going to take a fork or knife and scrape out the highlight product out of its original container and into a bowl. You can use how ever many highlighters that you want.
  2. Put the flower into the bowl for the finished product, you can hot glue it if you want or you can just place the flower in depending on the size of the flower and bowl.
  3. Next you’re going to take your flower and spray each petal with makeup setting spray, this will keep the highlight product onto the petals.
  4. Take your paint brush and dip it into the bowl of highlight and start to paint it on to the petal you just coated in setting spray.
  5. Repeat steps 2-3 until the entire flower is coated in setting spray and highlight.
  6. Try it out for yourself!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial, it is very simple and also very genius. I’m sure you guys can make a bunch of these using different powder products, of course use the inexpensive makeup so you’re not destroying name brand products. Also, it is great to save the empty containers of product for another DIY so you don’t have to go out and buy a small product when you can just re-use and recycle!
