Get The Look: Hanna Marin

Hey Girls!
This is look 3 in my pretty little liars get the look posts! Be sure to check out  Spencer' look and Aria's look as well! :)

Makeup & Hair
I love Hanna's hair and makeup,it is so girly and I always get inspiration. 
Hanna's eyes always pop so look for shadows that will help your eyes stand out! Her eyes are also lined which can also help your eyes stand out. Hanna's lips are usually pink and have gloss. 
Her hair is usually curled but sometimes she has really pretty hairstyles. One of my favourites is the one she is wearing in the picture. It is basically braiding both sides of your bangs and clipping them in the back.
Here is a makeup tutorial I found of her look on YouTube:

Hanna is always dresses girly with a bit of edge. For example, having a girly dress and pairing it with a blazer. She also loves accessories; belts, necklaces, purses, everything! She uses them to dress up her outfits and help define her waist. Here are some clothes I could see her wearing:
Be sure to check back later for Emily's look! :)

Maybelline Bouncy Blush vs. Dream Mousse Blush!

Maybelline released their newest blush awhile ago. I was curious about the difference between that and their old (now discontinued) dream mousse blush. 
I have both blushes in the same shade (10 Pink Frosting) and I am going to be comparing them on pigmentation, application, and packaging!
I was looking online and saw that people found the dream mousse blush more pigmented. I found the complete opposite! The mousse blush was more sheer and the bouncy blush had more colour to it. The Mousse blush also had a lot more shimmer than the bouncy blush. 
I find both of the blush apply the same. I couldn't find any major difference between them. Except the mousse blush was more creamy.
I LOVE the entire concept of bouncy blush it is so cool! It is actually bounces when you touch it! I also like how it is more compact than the mousse blush that way you can carry it with you or fit it in your collection a lot easier.

Overall, I like bouncy blush a lot better than the mousse blush.

Which one do you prefer?

lace nails ♥

Hey Girls!
Lace nails are my favourite thing ever! I think they are so girly and great for events or just everyday! They also would make a great accent nail. I found a way to get them online that just needs nail polish (if you want it to be like the picture I would suggest turquoise and caicos by Essie), top coat, scissors, toothpick and lace! 
Here is the link to the website for the instructions:

Will you dress up your nails up in lace? :)

I am sure a lot of you heard about Joseph Kony. 
If not he is the worlds number one war criminal. He is in Uganda and abducts children at night and makes the boys into child soldiers and the girls get rapped. 
Invisable children is trying to make him famous, not to celebrate him but to let people know who he is so the goverment will help capture him.
If you haven't watched this video I strongly reccomend it, it talks about Kony and what you can do to stop him:
Also, cover the night is on April 20 and I am so excited to participate in it in my town. If you are intrested you should see if there is one being held where you live!

Where you live shouldn't determine if you live.

Skincare: Sunscreen = Best Friend ♥

Hey Guys!
I am starting a new series all about skin care! It will have how to get nice skin and tips for keeping it healthy :) 
The sun is one of skins number one enemy because it can cause lines, dark spots, speed up aging and you can even get skin cancer.
You may think that sunscreen is only for spring/summer but the truth is its important all year round. 
You can wear a lower SPF in winter like 15 and a summer you can move to one with a higher rating. There are some foundations (like MAC) that has SPF in it, this can be good for the winter months because usually they don't have high ratings. 

Picking Your Sunscreen
When selecting a sunscreen pick one that protects against UVA and UVB rays. You also should buy a new sunscreen each year because it does expire. You should also wear waterproof sunscreen if your swimming or working out. Also remember the difference between sunscreen and sunblock. Sunscreen can be less protecting than a block. It is good if you are spending a small amount of time outside because it can let in some UV rays. A sunblock completely blocks all the UV rays, it is good for when your outside for a long period of time (like playing soccer, or laying on the beach). It is also a lot thicker. 

How To Apply It
You should apply sunscreen once a day (preferably in the morning) 30 minutes before you leave. When applying it to your face make sure it is clean, cool, and dry skin. Apply your makeup after you put on your sunscreen. 
Reapply sunscreen after swimming, working out, etc (even if it is waterproof!). Sunscreen is suppose to last around 2 hours.
You should use 2 tablespoons of sunscreen for your entire body. 

I hope this post was helpful and I will talk to you later! :)
