tip OO5; school makeup bag essentials

okaee. so alot of you who bring makeup to school bring unneccasary things,, like all the makeup you wore everyday. i personally dont think you need to bring your whole eyeshaddow quad or whateverr.. because theres no need to touch it up. it usually stays on. so yeah(:

choosing your makeup bag;
- pick a small one. you dont need a huge, giant bag that you have to lug aroundd all day.

what to bring;
- something thats gonna brighten up your eyes, like a shadestick. to put in the inner corner of your eyes, in the middle of the day if you looks tired.

- mascara. definatelyy! bring black, or brown. you dont need to bring the full size one, bring a sample or a mini. if you dont have any, go to a MAC counter or sephora, or even ulta. ask for samples(: they give you loads of samples(:. i use define a lash by maybelline in the green tube. its amazing(:

- mini eyeliners. again, bring samples or mini eyeliners. dont bring liquid eyelinerrs! pencil. i like urban decay& maybelline.

- chap stick. you definatelyyy need one! to keep your lips soft(: i always put a chap stick under m lipgloss or lipstick. burts bee's is nice.

- nude gloss.. or a light pink. always put chapstick on first, to prevent your lips from getting chapped. shiny things, in this case, your lipgloss, attract sunlight. then your lips get superr chapped and you dont want that to happen.

- concealer. maybe to touch up through out the day if you have any blemishes or suchh. i dont use/ need it, but if you need it then definately keep one with you.

- deodorant.. self explanitory.

- hand sanitizer. to keep your hands nice&clean. with all thesee sicknesses going around, you need hand sanitizer. i heard that after applying it 3 times, the next time, just wash your hands.

- mini perfume samples. maybe for after pe/ athletics. for 7th grade (athletics), its 7th period& for 8th grade(athletics) its 1st period.. so maybe you might wanna spritz it on your neck, wrists, and on your body.

- small mirror. again, self explanitory(:

- a few hair ties, and bobby pins. you neverr know when you'll need them. its always good to keep them with you.

thats it, for mee(:
i keep my makeup bag in my locker,. then take it to athletics withh me. in my athletics locker, i keep a hair brush, a body spray, and ofcourse my clothes/ shoes.
i hope you enjoyedd this tip.(:

tip OO3; nuetral makeup.

kaee(: so for this tip, im gonna be guiding you through a few neutral makeup looks, for school.. or anywhere. it'll be using mostly the same things(:

you'll need;
♥. a shimmery neutrals quad. (i use the maybelline quad in sunlit bronze 5O. you can get this at ulta, target, cvs, ect.)- shown in set.
♥. black mascara. (maybelline define a lash in the green tube, in very black. you can get this at drugstores.)
♥. dark brown eyeliner. ( avon kohl eyeliner in black/brown. you can get this at
♥. eyelid primer. (urban decay eyelid primer. you can get this is ulta or sephora.)
♥. brushes. (shader brush, highlighter, blush brush, crease brush. you can get these at drugstores, ulta, mac, sephora,, anywhere.)
♥. a peach with shimmer blush. ( nars blush in deep throat. you can get this at sephora.)-
♥. chaptsick.
♥. nude gloss. (loreal bare naturale lip conditioner in soft peach. you can get this at drugstores or ulta.)

i know that seems like a lot, but you'll need it all.
you dont have to have the exact items.. there are cheaper alternatives(:


O1. take your primer and prime the eye. a little bit is all you need. be sure to put a little bit under the eye too(:

O2. from your quad, take the 2nd lightest color and sweep it all over the lid. then, take the 2nd darkest color and use windsheild wiper motion to put it in your crease. pat some on your outer corner too and blend. next, take the highlighter color, which is the lightest color, and sweep it on your browbone.. this is right under your eyebrow. last, take the darkest color and at it in your outer corners. blend.

O3. apply yourblack/brown pencil eyeliner to your lower lashline. then, do a really really thin line onyour upper lashline.

O4. take your black/brown mascara and do a coat of mascara on your lashes. one coat is all i need, but you may need more.

O5. next, take your blush and pat some onto the brush. tap it to take any excess off. then, apply it to the apples of your cheeks by smiling, and work it up to your temples.

O6. time for gloss. first, take your chapstick and prep your lips. this helps your lips from getting chapped. then take your nude gloss, and apply it to your lips.

O7. youre done! enjoy(:

i hope you liked thiss tutorial. if you want me to do more, request below(:

whaat are you asking for?(:

dress like; ashley tisdale(:

dress like; ashley tisdale(:
dress like; ashley tisdale(: by rachnaaa. featuring Giuseppe Zanotti shoes

kaay(: i love ashleys style. &i love her as a brunette. hah. i'll be doing alot of these tonight, if you guys like them(: lets get started.
i'll be doing her makeup, hair,&outfit.

you dont have to have these exact items, they're just similar or exact to what ashley's wearing. the key pieces in this outfit are the ripped jeans, the black leather jacket, and the open toe booties. you can add any flowy white tank, and a long gold necklace. if you dont like to wear booties, maybe wear converse, or something to make the outfit your own.

exact jeans:

ashley's hair has nice, bouncy curls. part your hair to the side, like ashley's. then, apply a heat protectant. heat up a 1" curling iron, and start curling vertically. curl one way, then another, so the look looks natural. after every few curls, spritz some hairspray. after your done curling, your hair should look something like this(:

oh!&tell me if you like ashley better as a blonde or brunette. i like brunette(:

the funnn part(: ahah. ashley has a sun- kissed tan to her body& face, so if you dont have tan skin, then apply bronzer to your face. she has esspecially bronze cheeks, so intensify the bronzer on your cheeks. eyes. ashley usually does a nuetral eye, so thats what you want to do. first, pat a shimmery tan/ light brown eyeshadow all over your lid. then, take a shimmery bronzey color, and apply that to your crease. use a matte highlight color, a light light tan, or something that matches your skintone to highlight your browbone. now, take a dark brown pencil eyeliner, and line your upper lashline, focusing more on the outer corners. now, mascara! you can use either a brown, dark brown, or black mascara, it just depends on your hair color. if youre a brunette, or have dark hair, then i suggest dark brown or black. but if you're a blonde, maybe just brown. but its up to you. okay, so now its time to do the lips. first, apply a nude lipstick to your lips. then, take a nude/ light pink gloss to make it a polished look. youre done!

hopee you enjoyed. if you want me to do more, please comment below(:

How to: Braided Bangs Hairstyle.

So im gonna do a tutorial on this really cute braid hairsyle.
I have pictures at the bottom so look at that..its not the best,i couldn't get a good angle.

So, You'll Need;
- Straightner (maybe)
- Heat Protectant
- Hair Brush
- Bobby Pins
- Straightning Serum
- No-Frizz Spray

O1. If your hair isnt already straightened, then straighten it..make sure to use heat tamer if you do!(:
O2. Brush through your hair so there are no knots,then smooth some straighting serum into your hair. Brush again.
O3. Make a side part.
O4. Take your bangs and some bigger pieces and start a braid..not a french braid,but a braid. Be sure to braid back so it isnt messed up. You can do your braid all the way back, but i like to do mine about 1/3 the way.
O5. When youre done with the braid, take a bobby pin and secure it. If you need more than one to make sure it'll stay, make an x with another bobby pin.
O6. Spray no-frizz spray all through out your hair to make sure it doesnt frizz.
O7. Have fun with this cute look(:

Hope you liked,
