How bout them apples??

I recently was introduced to cream blushes and thought I’d give them a try. I liked the concept that cream blushes are good for summer because they blend well into the skin, and I like how you can also use the colors on your lips.

I splurged on theBalm palette from http://www.birchbox.com and I LOVEEE THIS!

I use Cider the most. It is a peach color that really gives my cheeks a beautiful color.

Pie is a pink hue that has a fuscia undertone.

Candy is a lighter pink that looks like a rosy peach.

Cobbler is NOT good for your cheeks. One light dab gives your lips the best red tint.

Crisp is a shimmer pink with an almost orange tint. I don’t really like shimmery cheeks or lips so I don’t use this often.

And Lastly, Carmel is a nice brown. You can use this to contour if you think its too brown for you.

Overall, I’m really in love with this palette. I think you should check it out! I bought it for $32.00 and I reach for it more than anything. The shades last about 2-3 hours so reapplying is a must for me!

I use the elf studio stipple brush to apply this because it packs on the color well.

The palette is perfect travel size and perfect for summer.

I highly recommend trying the cream blush route from them!

 

Kim-nay

My favorite celebrity is Kim Kardashian. Say what you will about her, but I think she is booti-full beautiful.

Nonetheless, being the middle eastern gal I am, I feel like anytime I get glammed up, people always compare me to her and say I look like her.

News flash to all y’all white people: Not every tan looking person resembles the Kardashians.

Now I would totally be lying if I said my ego isn’t inflated by this comparison. I learned how to curl my hair exactly like hers and get those spider lashes she rocks. (IF I HIT 20 LIKES ILL DO A STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL ON HOW TO GET HER HAIR). My 10 color concealer palette from ebay is on its way as we speak so I can contour my face like she does too. Plus I squat a few hundred times a day in an attempt to get a fraction of that concave rear end.

But what I’m trying to say is she isn’t everyones idol.

So next time you see someone with dark features and curly hair, vary the people you compare them to!

Peace! 🙂
