Annalynne McCord's Olive & Bronze look

Hey guys! I saw this look on Glamour a couple months ago, and finally tried a look out. It's a very easy yet cool look with olive shadow on top, a bit of bronze on bottom, and lots of brown liner. And I only used one palette: Wet n Wild Comfort Zone!!

Original look--close up
Here's the finished look! A little different, but virtually alike.

See how I did it after the jump!

Spring into Spring Fashions

Semi-recently, I was playing around on Polyvore and made a few outfits that I thought would be great for spring!

Check 'em out!

Outfit 1: Dressy Casual

I thought this look was just soo pretty. I think it's perfect for the office, a date, or if you just feel like dressing up for the day. I think mint and baby-girl pink are perfect for spring and look great together. With a sleek white blazer and a gorgeous structured bag, this is a perfect springtime look.

Outfit 2: Country Chic

This outfit is my comfy-yet-chic look which I frequently wear. A soft flannel shirt and comfy jeans look great with a corset-style top, some chunky boots, and delicate accessories. Bad-a**, yet delicate.

Outfit 3: Sexy Date Night

Perfect for a date night or fancy party. Instead of reaching for your trusty LBD, try a LWD (little white dress). It's unexpected, and will help you stand out. Some pretty heels, aqua jewelry, and a fierce orange mani/pedi will have you looking like one smokin' babe!

I hope you enjoyed this little fashion post, and hopefully, you got a little spring-fashion inspiration. See you in a later post!

Vibrant Purple 'Smokes'

Hey guys, time for a quick new tutorial! This is a really easy, super pretty purple 'smokey' eye. It's not a true smokey eye, in my opinion, but it's vibrant and happy looking :)

NOTD: Forever Lilac

Hey guys! Here's a quick Nails of the Day: lilac! Now, I don't normally reach for the purples in my collection (I definitely lean more towards pinks and neutrals) but this shade was just calling to me.

This is Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish in Forever Lilac (#22), a lilac purple with tons of silver microglitter. So pretty! And true to it's name, this "no chip" nail color lasted a whopping 6 days without chipping (with no top coat)!!

The only complaint I have about this polish is it's suuuuper sheer. I used 4 coats and still had a visible nail line!

xsparkage's Peachy Keen Jelly Bean! look

Hey guys, tutorial time! This look is based off a makeup look that Leesha at xsparkage did back in January. I recently got a bright orange shadow and bright blue liner, so I thought I'd give the look a try. It's bright, colorful, and surprisingly wearable!
