Leather and Lace and Studs OH MY!

Ask me anything   Submit   21 years old, from the amazing City of New York, full time BU student and full time fabulous bitch.
MAC obsessed and shoe obsessed.
I don't believe Disneyland is the "Happiest Place on Earth." It's definitely Sephora.

twitter.com/spipina:

    I know some of my amigas were asking me what they should get to start off with makeup. So I figured I’d just list some essentials you need to get at sephora or even drugstores, that won’t break you out or break the bank too hard.

    1. Liquid Foundation (only if you feel like you need extra coverage, otherwise skip to 2)

    I personally haven’t found a drugstore foundation that I like that works well on my skin. However I heard that the Revlon Colorstay is good (probably around 12 dollars). The cheapest you can get at sephora that I know of, and really like cause the company is formulated for your skin type, is the clinique foundations($22). I like the superbalanced formula, but they have a bunch, like one for acne and stuff.

    2. Powder Foundation (I like to put this on top of the liquid foundation because it keeps it on longer, lessens shine, and also adds a little more coverage. I need a lot of coverage. Lol.).

    I’ve heard that the physicians formula one is good, the mosaic pressed powder or something, i haven’t used it, or anything by neutrogena should be good. I like the mac studio fix powder plus foundation ($26.50). They have a bunch of different powders you can use tho, that have less coverage if you just need it for oil absorption or whatever. The sephora line is super good for cheaper powders.

    3. Eyeliner. 

    Personally, I prefer liquid eyeliner. I like the sephora line one($10) because it’s brush is thin and it’s not too expensive. For stick eyeliners, i like the mac eyekohl($14.50) in smolder, cuz it’s really black and sticks to my waterline well and smudges nice to give a super cute smokey look. It stays on ALL day. Seriously.

    4. Mascara

    I don’t like to splurge on mascara. You have to change it often and the drugstore ones are as good if not better. I like the the L’oreal Volume Million lashes (probably around $9). 

    So that’s it for now. These are the things that you can use on an everyday basis if you’re just starting off. This is basically what I do on an everyday basis if I’m in a hurry, except I put on mac’s melba blush usually as well. 

    I think I’m gonna do more posts like this, and might even start posting videos. If you have like ideas for me to try for a post or anything just let me know. I feel like this can be a lot of fun. Sorry if this is not relevant to you at all. <3 yall!!!!!

    My current favorite…

    So I’m thinking I might start doing a bunch of mini-posts just talking about my favorite whatever of the moment whether it be a makeup item, or a fashion item, or a tv show.

    So my current favorite lipgloss is MAC’s Florabundance Lipglass.

    What I love about it is that it doesn’t have a weird smell, it’s not sticky or greasy, which I hate both, but creamy. LOVE. It’s super pigmented and by itself is pretty and nudes out the lips with a pretty glossy finish, but on top of MAC’s Hue Lipstick gives a SUPER pretty pinkish nude lip. This looks cute whenever, but is also super nice when paired with heavier eye makeup. 

    Definitely a must have.

    I wanna know…what’s your favorite lipgloss?

    So, me and Roberta, neonkissesxoxo.tumblr.com, decided to start a YouTube channel. 

    This is my first makeup tutorial ever, minus a joke one I made for Corinne for her birthday freshman year for her 19th bday. 

    Anyway, it’s not perfect, it was fun to make though. I hope you guys enjoy it and keep checking the channel out cuz we plan on putting a bunch more stuff up there in the near future. Message us or comment if you have any requests or feedback.

    Day 1: A total inventory of all the makeup and makeup tools you own. 
This kind of feels like bragging if I&#8217;m going to list all the brands and colors of the makeup I own. I don&#8217;t feel like it&#8217;s necessary. However, keeping in good spirit with the challenge, I will put a picture of the makeup that I brought to Boston with me.

    Day 3: Your weird makeup tips and secrets

    I’m not sure I have any “weird” makeup tips, but there are some steps I do that most people don’t need to or just don’t. 

    I guess one that’s kinda weird is I contour my nose so that it looks less wide, and I contour my forehead cuz it’s GINORMOUS! lol. 

    Also sometimes I’ll put a similar color eyeshadow on top of my lipstick so that it has a longer staying power.

    I think that’s it. I don’t think those are particularly weird, but I guess not so conventional. 

    I have a crazy day today so I’m sorry if this post is half assed.

    Day 4: A picture of you with your favorite single eye shadow.
This is my newest single eyeshadow, but it&#8217;s already my favorite.
It&#8217;s Goldmine from MAC. I LOVE IT. I&#8217;m wearing it right now, but you can&#8217;t see cuz my eyes are open wide. It looks so good with Deviant from Urban Decay which is a blue eyeliner. I feel very wonderwoman like for some reason.

    andtheunknown-deactivated201112 asked: Do you prefer the 209 or the 266 for lining eyes?


    Answer:

    I don’t really use a brush to line my upper lash line that often since I’m a liquid liner fan, but personally I would go for the 266 brush because at least for me I feel that it gives more control when dragging the product along the lash line, and for me at least it is easier to wing the ends evenly on both eyes because of the control.

    Also I would go for the 266 brush just because an angled brush is a really great tool to have since you can use it for a bunch of stuff like eyebrows and also packing black eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner on your water line to give it more staying powder.

    That’s just my opinion though. I’m sure a lot of people might prefer the 209 brush, since it probably can make more delicate wings and probably thinner lines.

    Day 5: A picture with three different color eye shadows 
This is Stila&#8217;s The It Girl palette.
I got it for only 15 bucks at sephora. Say whaaaat? Yeah it was where they put the travel sized stuff where you are kind of forced to make impulse buys. Lol. 
Amazing deal though because all these eyeshadows are super pretty and I use the middle one, kitten, almost everyday. It&#8217;s a really beautiful champagne color. Great for highlighting the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes.
