New Contacts, upcoming hauls, and more!

Hey beauties! So my new contacts have finally arrived! One pair I love and the other I am still on the boat about, but I'm not telling which is which yet. I have taken pictures and I will get them on here ASAP! 

Also, I have three upcoming hauls. One mini one of a few new products I got. And two, yes two, Halloween ones. I love Halloween time, especially when stores put out all those awesome makeup and face painting kits, eyelashes and more! So, on two separate trips I picked up quite of few of those. Can't wait to show you.

Also, are you interested in the essentials I keep in my makeup bag? Check it out here and let me know what essentials you keep in yours, too!

My 50 Shades

We all do it. Any of you who is an avid reader of novels especially. You hear someone described. You put together their personality. Soon, the perfect image draws itself up in your head and now you have the perfect character in mind.

50 Shades of Grey...need I say more?

I am sure most 50 Shades fans have heard of the upcoming movie, and of course a fourth book. I, myself, am currently on the second in the, as of now, triology. Before my discovery and knowledge of a 50 shades movie, I had the perfect image in my head of my beloved Christian Grey. From the sexy body right down those intimidating grey eyes.

Now it may just be my opinion, but there is nothing more disappointing to me then when a best-selling book that I have grown to love decides upon a movie. The actors never fit up to my expectations of the perfect characters in my mind. Of course, that is no ones fault.

Let's take a look at the nominees rumoured to play Christian Grey. There is Chace Crawford-neh, not enough personaity. Channing Tatum- Magic Mike...yes please! But Christian Grey? Not so much. Ian Somerhalder- my god what a sexy almost perfect man. But Christian Grey? Hmm... maybe but I feel his intimidating sexy would come out more as Damon from Vampire Diaries then my Christian Grey. The rumored man to have made the part is Matt Bomer-yes, I think he could pull the part of looks off pretty good, but personality I am not too sure as of yet. The problem still exists though, that none of them are the perfect Christian I dreamed up in my head. So on my own quest to find a close call to my Christian(this tooks lots of research) I think maybe, just maybe I found him! He may not be your Christian Grey but he sure as hell is mine.Yummy!

And It is Time for an Eye Change!

I have went through many contacts through out my short life, having been wearing contacts since I was in the 6th grade. Like any curious guy or girl out there, I have also went through many different colored contacts. I have tried different shades of blue, brown, green, violet, and I even had some of those crazy Halloween type ones. The contacts that always stood out the most on me and got me noticed were my green contacts( I have had two different kinds) hence my newly popular nickname...Money Eyes -_- ... I have been wearing green contacts for about 4 years now and I am happy/sad <---- is this bipolar? say that I am finally ready for a change!
Please excuse the embarassing duckface
Most of you may not realize how giant of a step this is for me as I have grown quite attached to my green eyes. OH...elephant in the natural eyes are a hazel by the way with hints of brown, grey, and green. There is nothing wrong with the peepers I was born in, I just like to be different is all.

I am thinking grey...what do you guys think? Too late anyways because they have already been ordered. Yes, more then one. I have to have a backup just in case. I ordered Freshlook Colorblends in Sterling Grey, and GEO Magic Color - Angel Color Contact LensesModel: CM-835. I am hoping these are just the right change and shade for me.
Here is a good look at all the Freshlook Colorblends
Here are the GEO's in Angel Grey. And they are Circle Lenses

I would really love to hear all opinions and also let me know if you have tried any of these. I will gladly post pics when they finally arrive! In the meantime , check these out from two of my absolute favorite Youtube Beauty Guru's!

Some Tips For You

Depending on the products you are using and your goal, you can just about transform anybody to a new look. But let's face it, things will go a whole lot smoother if your skin is well taken care of. Your skincare routine is a big part of your hygeine and how well makeup can apply to your face. There are products out there to help with just about every skin type, whether you have oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, or acne. The one thing you must have down, though, is a routine. You can't moisturize one day a week and expect your skin to be perfect. It just will not happen! I do not by any means have perfect skin, but I try my absolute hardest to take care of it.

Now, I am not going to sit here and tell you what you should do and use in your routine. Otherwise, it would not be your routine now would it? I will share with you though, some good products to have on hand and try to use daily.

  • First and foremost, you need to know your skin type as listed above. There are plenty of products out there that will suit every skin type. All you have to do is research and read labels. 
  • Moisturizer is key to healthy skin for every skin type. Even if you have oily skin, there are moisturizers out there for you as well. Many acne-type brands also make moisturizers for acne prone skin with medication in it to treat and prevent breakouts and pesky pimples.
  • A good toner is also very beneficial to the skin. I use two different kinds everyday which I sweep onto my face before my moisturizer. One is to soak up oil for oily skin, and one is to help clean and hide pores. Toner helps to keep a good ph balance in your skin and to restore a good, healthy color.
  • An optional part in your routine can be the many types of serums offered out there. They make them for baggy under eye circles, for wrinkles, to tone and tighten the face, and some more pricey brands contain retinol in them, so be sure to read your labels before buying anything.
  • Always, always, always make sure you have a good cleanser for the face above all else. Those are also made with different kinds of skin types in mind as well. Cleansing your face properly will help to ensure all the benefits of nice clean and healthy skin!
