Recreating Tumblr Photography

Hi everyone! Tumblr is like heaven for fangirls and photographers. Lucky for you, I’m both, so today you get to see me recreating artsy photography from tumblr. I saw this idea on Sam’s blog, and she did an awesome job, and I’ve really wanted to do it since then. I did okay-ish. The photos look….fine? Idk, they’re not my best, but I’m posing them anyway.

I only have two in this post, but if you’d like me to do more, I will. 🙂

I actually really like how this turned out. The colors would have been more like the original if not for the bokeh effect I had to put in, but I still think it’s pretty nice.

THIS TOOK FOREVER. I had to put my camera on a timer, retake and re-edit the photos over and over again, and it wasn’t even really worth it, because the angle’s off, the saturation is too bright, and just overall….ehh.


What do you think? Do you want a part 2?


All photos were edited on befunky. It was my first time using that site, but I like it almost better than picmonkey!

Makeup Routine <3

Hi everyone, so I know this isn’t the type of post I normally do, but I kind of wanted to show you guys my makeup routine. This is typically what I would wear on a summer day or if I was going somewhere. For school, I’d normally just throw on concealer & mascara just to feel put together. But this a natural makeup routine for “glam days” or just for when I feel like it.

I can’t show my face on here, so I’m just going to be naming the products I use, the order I use them in, and how I like them.

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A BEAUTY GURU!! I learned how to do my makeup by looking things up and experimenting. I just thought it would be a fun post to do, and that you guys would maybe like to see how I get ready in the morning. Also, I’m definitely not saying that everyone should wear makeup or anything like that.  Again, this post is just for fun. You are beautiful, with or without makeup!

^^This is everything in my makeup bag. Of course I don’t use ALLLLL of this on a daily basis, though.

(foundation not included in photo above)

SO, what I like to start with is prepping my face, typically just with a moisturizer. Then I use my Real Techniques expert face brush to put on a light layer of foundation. Then I take a small concealer brush (lol it’s from dollar tree) and put on concealer (that’s the little purple jar) under my eyes and on any spots. I then blend it out with the same brush I used for foundation. Also, sometimes I’ll skip foundation and go straight for concealer. 

I then use my dollar store blush brush (hey, it works) and my tarte blush in the shade ‘paaarty’ to dust a bit of color onto my cheeks. And if I want to use highlight, I’ll probably use the same brush and my e.l.f. highlighter in the shade Blush Gems. I honestly don’t wear highlight enough to get a separate brush for it.

I know there’s an eyeshadow palette in there, but I really only use that on special occasions, and not for everyday makeup, so we’re skipping eyeshadow.

Thennnn, I finish the look off with my Maybelline Mascara. I had the Lash Sensational mascara before this, but I ran out of it and had to get a new one. I decided to try something a little different and I ended up liking my previous mascara’s wand better since it was curved, so I cleaned it up and stuck it in my new mascara.

I also have the travel size version of benefit’s roller lash mascara, but since it is such a tiny bottle I don’t use it all the time. I do love it though, it gives my lashes so much length and a bit of a curl, and it’s natural looking.

I rarely use lip gloss/ lipstick, and normally just use baby lips lip balm, but when I do, I’ll usually use the L’oréal Infallible lip gloss in a pretty mauve shade, and I like this because it makes my lips, well, glossy, and it’s a gorgeous color.

That’s it for my makeup routine, I hope it was fun to read! Let me know if you’d like to see more posts like this.

Have a beautiful day! (I’m sorry, I know I’m cheesy. I literally could not think of another end to this post.)

Quick Question

Hey everyone, I just have a quick question. Do you have any suggestions about what I can post on here? Something you’d like to see? Book Reviews, DIYs, etc.? Let me know in the comments! I’m thinking about posting more makeup and fashion stuff, like product reviews and such, but I didn’t know if y’all wanted to read  that, so I’m just asking-would you?

I’ll be happy to do whatever you suggest!

I GOT TO MEET THE LOVELY SAMANTHA FROM REDHEAD WITH A BOOK! She’s even more awesome in real life, guys, I’m so lucky I got to meet her! I had a blast!! Go follow her if you haven’t already-she’s my twin.

It was really cool to kind of see a behind-the-scenes of Sam’s blogs,  and meet her adorable cat, Twila!😻

And because Sam’s AMAZING, she got me this adorable pusheen planner, a couple mini emoji pillows, a bookmark, a handmade bracelet, and a really sweet card!image.jpg

 

I’m SO happy we got to meet, it almost didn’t work out but we made it happen!!! Sam’s such a beautiful, smart, quirky person, and it’s so cool that I can now say I know her IRL!

(Sam and I were talking yesterday and we both agreed it would be perfect if Loren was there.)

*fangirls*

GUYS. How cool is it to be able to say I’ve been in my favorite blogger’s ROOM?! (Btw, Sam, your rainbow bookshelf looks way better than mine ever did. XD)

Thank you SO much Sam for such an awesome experience! I had SO much fun and the whole time I was like “OMG THIS IS HAPPENING!!!”
