Rainbow Eyes

This makeup was inspired by nature and God’s word in the scripture as my daily Bible verse of the day popped up on my phone screen.

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth . . . and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” Genesis 9:12-13

Makeup is all about self expression and when it comes to bright colors I go wild with it, no limitations at all.  I love to go bold and dramatic once in a while, and today was one of those days.

STEP 1:

Starting off with .M.A.C. PREP + PRIME Fixator I sprayed all over my face and let it sit for a few seconds before applying my Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette which is basically concealers to cover up all those blemishes, dark circles, or unwanted spots.Side Note: I love concealers since they have a thicker composition than foundation specially if they are high pigmented for better long lasting coverage. Then I used from Sephora’s Signature Collection 10 Hr wear Perfection Foundation  which is oil free  and it its has a medium coverage in clair light 23 shade. I find that its amazing because it doesn’t feel heavy on my face and it controls my oily skin providing a good amount of coverage and its not too expensive.

STEP 2

On my lids I apply just a touch of Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion; this will create a great long lasting crease free base for your eyeshadow providing high pigmented look all day. For my look I used high pigmented eye shadows from BH Cosmetics in the Second Edition 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette. Starting from the outside corners of my eyes I used the following colors of eyeshadow: purple blending into  blue and green on my left eye. Meanwhile on my right eye from the outside in I used fuchsia, orange, and yellow.

Using my Toki Doki Brushes  I dabbed my brushed on each color one by one, cleaning my brush  in between as I did each color differently I normally clean it with Sephora’s Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner. This will help to keep your eye shadow palette last longer clean from the debris of the other colors. Then I used my blending brush to blend out the creme shade above the eye and the white highlighting under the arch of my brows.  The same way you color your lids, repeat the same colors at the bottom of your water line.

STEP 3

Apply the black NYX Studio Liquid Liner along your top lid from the inside out for a perfect wide cat eye like Adele’s.  Then apply any regular black or colored eyeliner at the waterline the rest. Then apply Ulta’s black Legendary Lengths Lengthening Mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

Step 4

Add your choice of contouring (optional)

Apply your choice of setting powder; I personally use MAC Studio Fix Powder which is both a powder / foundation pigmented. Because it gives that nice matte airbrushed effect and it really prevents any oils during the day. BEST BUY

Apply NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm start by outlining your lips a little from the outside of your regular lips for a fuller look and work your way in. You can always add an ombre effect by adding darker or lighter shade in the middle (optional).

Finish off by spraying .M.A.C.’s Prep and Prime Fix. This will keep your makeup last for long hours during the day all the way till night time. Depending on how much you sweat its always a good idea to reapply setting powder here and there. But for the most part it will keep your eyeshadow and eyeliner from running everywhere.  BEST BUY if you really love not having to reapply your eyeshadow all the time.

There you go! How easy was that! If you give this look a try, make sure you give this post a thumbs up and share with your friends. Make sure to hashtag #rainbowtopchartsbabe and tag me @evetzie_styles on Instagram! 😀 I would love to give you a like back.

SPLURGE .V.S. STEAL- Like you’ve never heard before.

A lot of people confuse the term “SPLURGE .V.S. STEAL” like its a bad thing. When in all reality is an amazing thing and amazing term that everyone should keep in mind when they are out shopping.

When you hear the word “Splurge” a lot of you think about high end products or brand names with popularity and luxury items.  Mean while, when a lot of you hear the word “Steal” some think of generic brands, low quality, and even consider the product cheap. Im here to open your eyes to this particular term which when a lot of you hear your opinions and choices you make bury you more in debt in your shopping spree. 

The word “Steal” here represents good quality items, wether they are “generic” or not a high end  or expensive, is still a brand. Some which are more affordable for consumers like you and I who may not be able to afford such ridiculous retail prices. Some of us wether your a fashion blogger, call yourself a “Fashionista”, or you simply know your bargain “steal” is what we call when you want to SAVE more than the Louis Vuitton or Chanel bag you just bought under “SPLURGE” for thousands of dollars.  And NO i don’t mean steal like shoplifting! DUH!

Here are some tips and examples of how you can save a ridiculous amount of money during your shopping spree created by me:

1.) LEARN YOUR “SHOPPING SPREE” TERMS & READ SIGNS:

Yes! I have spoken please do learn your “Shopping Spree” terms there is nothing more embarassing than going shopping you misread the sign so READ before you ask anything.  So if you see these terms in the signage this is what it means:

  • BOGO : Buy One Get One meaning Free! always definitely worth the buy sometimes.
  • $3…. (when you buy one regular price item) : Meaning you buy one of those items at regular price and the second item that you buy after that one will only cost you $3.00

See where this is confusing… not yet? Well let me tell you, you will see a lot of these in stores like RUE21 and Wet Seal! You have no idea the amount of consumers who I see running up to the tables all excited to purchase like six of the same item only to realize later on at the register that they had to purchase 3 of them at regular price and then the other three they would be under the promotion of $3 dollars. Then they get mad because that is not what they read then they show you the small font that says it, then they leave embarrassed or very few make the choice of purchasing it and never come back.

  • BUY 1 GET 1 1/2 OFF! : Okay so seriously I shouldn’t even have to explain this! But having worked in retail for many years I still get asked the same stupid question over again. If the sign says Buy 1 Get 1 1/2 OFF! and the two items you picked where in that category and you ask me or Im telling you “Yes these are” and you ask me the same question again… what do you think they are?… 🙂
  • CLEAREANCE / SALE: My two favorite words to hear and my two favorite sections I love to have my eye on every time without fail when I go shopping. In this department you will probably find the same amazing item you have been longing to buy for the longest or that you probably saw a couple weeks ago on the window display. From its original price it could have gone from 30% – 75% off the regular ticketed price. And I always find good sales!! I hunt for them. So when you go shopping for sales like these make sure your on your day off, comfy shoes, because your going to be shopping for hours. Its ridiculous the amount of money I have saved throughout the years with these two terms! NOW like every great thing there is always a downside which you will come to face sooner or later. When you shop under Cleareance or Sale don’t expect them to have your size all the time, or to be 100% perfect (sometimes they may have their little damages like missing  a button or whatever) just make sure that you think if its worth paying for even if its discounted. Sometimes and this comes with experience throughout the years don’t buy the first thing you see even if its in cleareance. Sometimes other stores will have the same item for even less than the previous discounted price you saw so you save even more. 🙂 So make sure to ask about their return/exchange policies, keep your receipts!!, and about their HOLD policy. 
  • FINAL SALE: Its final, don’t come and try to exchange or return it its not happening. So make sure you check for stains, rips, zippers, sizing, prices, and etc before actually purchasing. Usually you don’t get your money back, and your stuck with a trainwreck of an item that you will probably never wear. And if that is the case then please do something good with it and donate it to someone who needs it or a local thriftstore or stores like GOODWILL, or SALVATION ARMY.

2.) EMAIL SUBSCRIPTIONS:

Yes you know those little questions at the register when they ask you about your email and so on. SAY YES! Why not? First of all its FREE to subscribe and you would be suprise at the amount of money you can save. If you are the type of person who don’t like giving out your information. I totally understand, for that reason just give them your email and if you don’t feel comfortable using your personal email because of spam or junk mail or you simply want to read important emails, then here is a little bright idea: CREATE A NEW EMAIL ACCOUNT and just use that for subscriptions for when you go out shopping.

These emails are great a lot of companies will use this method to promote their sales, special events,

3. COUPONS!!: Okay so after you have subscribed you should start receiving a lot of those loving coupons. Most you will use others you will trash. Just make sure that you READ once again all the tiny little letters and the coupon as a whole. See what the requirements in order to use that coupon are. See if its something that will benefit you, and if it does make sure you use it! Meaning make sure you keep in mind and read when does it expire? There is no point of spending two hours shopping and then later you realized it was expired that would be a total and EPIC FAIL!  Most of these coupons are life savers you can save $10- 20 dollars off, or you could get FREE promotional items!

Make sure you keep the coupons you plan on using with you 24/7 you never know if you will end up going to that store by accident and the worst thing is you left your coupons at home. YIKES yet another epic fail! But just because you have a coupon doesn’t mean you have to use it, thats is just optional. I have let some coupons go to waste on purpose or have given it to friends or family members who I know will benefit them if I know Im not going to.

I have gotten great brand name and expensive body lotions, shower gels, antibacterials, underwear, or bras for FREE!! no strings attached! 🙂 how amazing is that! and all because i subscribed and kept my coupons in handy within the time frame given to use it.  

4.) ALWAYS ASK, BEFORE YOU BUY: My number one rule when shopping!

Don’t be afraid to ask about the store’s Return or Exchange Policies because the worst thing to do is to buy something you can’t return or exchange. Also please make sure that you ask yourself for the seventh hundred times if the item or product your purchasing to you its worth the buy. Are you a rebuyer meaning do you buy the same product more than once just because, or do you really need it ? Does the price meet or pleases  your budget (if you have any). 

Most companies or stores will require you to have:

  • Your original receipts, and tags attached as proof of purchase
  • 30/90 Day policy to bring the item back for a full refund or exchange.
  • The same method of payments again for your protection as another proof of purchase and makes the process easier

So now that I have properly introduced to some great saving tips here are some example of the “SPLURGE .V.S. STEAL” items I was pointing to you out earlier!

FASHION HAUL+ FREEBIES!

Hello Fashionminies!

So who doesn’t love a great fashion haul including some freebies. This week I received a couple of great deals, from some really great stores and I got some amazing products.  You know those little email sign ups or information you avoid at the registers well sometimes they can be your best friends.

The first store I went into was Victoria’s Secret. I received a great promotional card with a special deal on it. The first one was a FREE Incredible by Victoria’s Secret Hiphuggers or Thong in any color of a value of $12.50. What you probably did not know was that you can use it in PINK by Victoria’s Secret stores too. So if you go there and show them your promo card you are able to get the same deal there.  I love  the college brand products, so I got the crystal detail GATORS panties usually $10.50 retail priced completely FREE no purchased necessary.

The second store I went into was a Bath and Body Works. Where I received two great deals. The first deal was a FREE item of my choice up to a $5.00  retail value from any signature collection. Which since I love their body lotions so much, i chose the travel size Japanese Cherry Blossom body lotion. Totally FREE! The second deal was 20% off my total purchase. I love to find great discount deals and on top of that save some more by combining deals.  They had a 3 for $10.00 sale on their travel size body sprays, body shower gels, and  body lotions. I got two of my favorite body shower gels from Japanese Cherry Blossom to Twilight Woods, and the Japanese Cherry Blossom body spray.  Each item is  $5.00 for lotions or $6.00 for shower gels.  So off the bat I saved $6.00 (from a regular total retail value of $16) because of the 3 for $10.  Then from my total I had an extra 20% off of my total purchase, and because of tax my total was $8.00. But basically its like I bought only one plus tax and got two for free. After my purchase I received another card FREE item of my choice up to a $13 value when I spend $15 but basically its like if your paying for a $2.00 difference. And this week I got another promotional card for another FREE of a signature collection no purchase necessary.

The third store I walked into was Forever 21. I basically walked in just to browse and see what they had new, but then I saw the sale sign and it was love at first sight. The sale was 50% off on top of the already discounted priced. I scored this great dress from $14.99 for $7.99 (originally priced at $25)  I saved $17.00. I also got a cute top with the lyrics to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” made famous by Cindy Lauper from $5.99 for $2.99 (originally priced by $13.80) I saved $11 . Altogether i saved a total of $28.00 from $40.00 original price.

There are a lot of perks when you sign up to mailing list to stores so make your next time you visit any of these stores or your favorite ones to ask about their rewards program. Also, make sure to always drop by and browse on the sale section I have gotten great deals like this and you can too.  Now that’s a good deal! 🙂
