Quick Looks: Piiink!

Sometimes I like to do my makeup, but either the look itself is way too basic to warrant a tutorial, or I just don’t have the time to film one. I know you guys like seeing makeup tutorials and such, so to add to the actual tutorials I film (and pinkie swear, they’re coming!) I’m gonna start doing what I did way-back-when on live journal, and posting FOTD (Face of the Day) but I’ll just call them Quick Looks :) I doubt this will be a daily posting, but hopefully it’s more often than tutorials!

Today’s quick look is insanely simple, but always attention grabbing :) I had done my face makeup and was planning to film a tutorial, but soon realized that it was a little too late to start filming, and I still hadn’t had a chance to go to Target to get some new light bulbs for my umbrella lights (the ones I have are waaay too dim, resulting in me looking like my face is gray!) So, I decided that filming will happen tomorrow afternoon (I’m going to get an evaluation for invisalign tomorrow.. ahh! I want my bottom teeth to get re-straightened out. this is what happens if you don’t wear a retainer, kids!) And instead went over to Ulta to use my 20% off coupon :) :)

Quick Look

My face makeup, as always, is my OCC airbrush makeup (Y1) along with a little contouring from Benefit Hoola. All I have on my eyes is one coat of Benefit They’re Real Mascara on the top lashes, although I haven’t decided if I really like that mascara. I guess it’s good if you have a lot of lashes and just need length.

On my lips is an illamasqua Intense Lipgloss that, wouldn’t you know, doesnt have a color label on it. After searching both Sephora and Illamasqua’s website, i have a feeling this color doesn’t exist anymore.

I wish i could tell you the name! It’s a bright bright neon pink. it reminds me of OCC Anime Lip Tar, but its not as opaque.

I used a volumizing product in my hair today (i forget what it was, but I think it was a pureology volumizing mousse) which I hadn’t tried yet since it’s been short.. I don’t know if I like it yet or not. you can’t really tell from that photo, but it’s taking on a life of its own. Super final fantasy :)

QL1

This is usually what happens a few days after washing it, not a few hours! before I washed my hair this morning, it had been unwashed for just a day and a half, had zero products in it that would piece it out or add volume, and I was able to make it stick straight up. And my last stylist told me I wouldn’t have enough volume for this cut. Hah!

Oh yeah, I also made my tutorial background white. I’ve wasted so much money on fabric at Joanns for fail backgrounds, haha. I think white will work though!

Okay, this was a weird post. But I kinda liked it. I’m going to go either play Banjo Kazooie on xbox, or try dance central with xbox kinnect that I just got in the mail. I should probably do the later and get a little exercise in :)

    Wow, your hair really does look like it has a life of its own! And it does look very FF-ish, lol. That lip gloss is seriously awesome; love the hot pink! :D

    I love reading your blog, you always have such great posts :)

    Question: How do you feel about the Illamasqua intense lipgloss?
    I found one sheer & two intense glosses on Sephora’s website that I like, I just want to pick up one first but I’ve not seen a review on them. Do you feel they are worth the $20 and what is the gloss like (fragrant, highly sticky, etc…)

      Hey Kim,

      I know you’re asking Leesha, but just in case she doesn’t get a chance to answer, the intense lipglosses are stickier than most other lipglosses, and they can’t be just slathered on in 2 seconds. The color is kinda streaky, so you have to make sure your lips are evenly covered when you put them on. The longer you wear them, the stickier they get, and they get to be a little drying as well. They do last a long time however. But depending on your lips they may not be drying, you’ll just have to try one and see.

      OCC lip tars are a lot less expensive, and do the same/better job for a lot less stickiness/dryness in my opinion.

    Can we just TALK about your hair – I’m seeing pictures from The Beauty Social and I’m dying. Ded. It looks redonkulous, SO GOOD. You look freaking incredible.

    Sometimes just mascara + bright pink lips is awesome. I’ve done it with MAC Candy Yum Yum or Morgana Cryptoria Azalea Blue. Love it :) Love your hair too! You look gorgeous :)

    Leesha, I love your new short short hair! And that FF-ish hair really suits you, thats what I did when I had hair that short, except it was bright orange! Haha! :P

    Hey!

    I just wanted to mention that hair products giving your hair volume are dangerous for your hair. I’m from germany and some scientists did a study on that. and they tested all kinds of volume hair products. the end result was that all of them had chemicals in there that are highly dangerous for your hair. and some were even supporting cancer.

    Just wanted to let you know ’cause I thought that might be interesting for you!

    Sincerely

    Christina

    Leesha! I have invisalign and it’s great, much better than regular braces. I had them on top with metal braces on the bottom because they were so bad, but now those are off and I’m waiting for my bottom invisalign to come in. I hope it works out for you to get them!
