Right now, i'd have to say my bomber jacket - only because it's the newest addition to my closet family :) 2. What are your biggest obsessions? Makeup, clothes, and spaghetti!!! 3. Who inspires you? Corbin, because he loves me. <--- LOL he told me to put that. 4. Who is your favourite designer and why? Definitely Marc Jacobs!

New hair cut!!


BEFORE:
AFTER:
Agency was practically harrassing me to get it done..so I decided to part with my long hair :( It's shorter, with layers, little bangs, and v shape in the back! I like it a lot actually - it feels a lot lighter and has more texture to it. For $35.00 bucks, i'm happy :) Have a great weekend! Cynthia

Accessories + Clothing


I've been picking up stuff here and there, and thought i'd share it with you all. No a lot of stuff - just special stuff...to me :) First - Forever21.com! I love to shop online rather than their stores, because it's always so messy in there!! I can never find anything when i'm at the store, but when i'm online - I find everything. Score!
I particulary like circle earrings better, because I have such a long face (+ long hair) that if I'm wearing longer earrings?? My whole face will look even longer - and that's not cool. lol. I also stopped by BeBe and bought a bomber jacket. It was on sale for $98 - which isn't bad, considering it was originally $139.00! I just love the zipper detailing in the front and back - it really frames my body shape well.
The pants I bought at Wet Seal for $24.00 - I needed a good pair of skinny jeans. And when i'm saying "Skinny", i'm talkin "SKINNY"! I have some now, but they just don't do it justice. These are my new favs :) Don't know if you guys have heard of Alloy.com - but it's a website for casual clothing and tons of jeans to select from. Anyway, I have a couple of modeling friends that actually model for their catalogue and was flipping through it and thought i'd pick up a few things from there. The sizes are really weird..so I would be really cautious when buying from them.
I was watching LaBelleMel31's YouTube channel and saw a neat trick about some headbands. I went to walmart and bought me some. LOL.
That's it for now! I'm getting my haircut tomorrow afternoon at my mom's friends salon (hope she's good...). It won't be a dramatic change, because i'm still being represented by an agency - but I want some freakin' LAYERS!! I'll post pics tomorrow :) Love y'all, Cynthia

Coldplay Concert :)


It. Was. AMAZING! They are officially my favorite band! They played all my old favorites, and new stuff too! It was just seriously an amazing concert. They cared about the audience, and didn't act like they were the sh*t - they even played couple songs up towards the lawn area of the arena for those who couldn't get a seat inside. That's some thoughtful stuff right there. AND they played Billie Jean by Michael Jackson too!! I was too consumed in the music that I didn't get much pics - it was seriously the best concert i've EVER BEEN TO!
Sorry this post isn't "beauty" related - but Coldplay deserves it's own entry. What's your favorite Coldplay song? Cynthia <3

MAC Satin Taupe Dupe!


Hey everyone! I was playing around with my Coastal Scents 88 original palette today because I felt bad for them - they've been neglected for quite some time...And found a dupe for MAC's eyeshadow Satin Taupe!

Satin Taupe

Let me know what you think - I think they're pretty darn close!
I would have to say though, the consistency of the MAC Satin Taupe is a lot smoother than the Coastal Scents one. The Coastal Scents one was somewhat clumpy, and not super pigmented as MAC's. I did also put a beige base (Revlon's Illuminance creme shadow) on my arm, therefore the color payoff is a little bit more "loud".
I really do love this eyeshadow color (Satin Taupe), it's one of my must-haves. *I did check to see if the Coastal Scents 88 SHIMMER palette had the exact same color, but sadly..it doesn't :( P.S - Corbin and I are going to get to see Coldplay tomorrow night!! I'll try to post some pics! This will be the 3rd concert i've ever been to! LOL SAD - I KNOW! Cynthia

My makeup collection + storage!


I'm on a roll here updating this blog! I was requested by several youtube viewers to do a makeup collection video - so I decided to do it. WARNING: PIC HEAVYYYY! And honestly, if people find that this is me bragging at what I have - I would just smile at them because I don't have anything special! Everybody has basically what I have anyway, lol. Seriously though, I really don't have much stuff.
I bought these boxes at IKEA for $14.99 each! I've provided a link for you all: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50073305 And another: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60073300
Here I have my brushes, brush cleaner, and random stuff:
First drawer up top contains all of my primers and creme shadows:
Next drawer, I have all of my face stuff (foundation, moisturizers, etc):
This drawer is boring, I have my Essence of Beauty brushes in here and other random stuff:
Next drawer I have my ELF lashes, and Ardell lashes. I also keep my brow stuff in here too:
I keep my Bobbi Brown makeup bag, Bobbi Brown makeup brush sets, and hair stuff in here:
I like to also have all of my nail stuff in one drawer too (cotton balls, swabs, glue on nails, etc.):
Next set of drawers, I keep all of my eyeshadows in this one!! (Drugstore - Physcians Formula, L'Oreal HIP, ELF, NYX) to high end (MAC, Dior, Bobbi Brown):
All of my blushes, bronzers, contours, and 2 Coastal Scents Palettes in this drawer:
Lippies!! My MAC lipsticks, lipglosses, drugstore lippies, & lip conditioners. I also keep my eyeliners, and mascaras in here too:
On top of all of my drawers, I keep all of my Bobbi Brown blushes and shimmer eyeshadows (I will be doing swatches soon!):
Then in cool painted boxes from Mexico (hubby bought them for me), I keep all of my nail polishes in them!
If anybody is wondering how I came up with my username on YouTube - it's all due to this Chanel nailpolish! This was the first nailpolish that I ever bought: Chanel Blue Satin
That's it! Hope you enjoyed this :) Cynthia

Painting my ELF makeup brushes


I was bored this morning, so I decided to paint my ELF makeup brushes. ONLY my ELF ones, I wouldn't dare to paint my MAC ones - they're too valueable to me. LOL Am I crazy? I can't help it!! I chose to use my China Glaze nail polish in Naked because it doesn't look right on my fingernails (my skin tone is too dark). So I wanted to use it for something, right? I also used my China Glaze Top Coat in Fast Forward because it had glitters in it, and I usually don't like to put glitter on my nail polish - but my ELF brushes, why not? hehehe
Things needed: ELF brush Tape Nail Polish (China Glaze in Naked / China Glaze Top Coat in Fast Forward) Basically what I did, was wrapped a piece of tape around the handle - and started to put on 2 coats of polish for a denser color payoff. I coated it with my top coat, and voila! Of course be sure to take off the tape slowly, you could end up ruining your polish :(
The Result:
I like it! I'm happy with it <3 Cynthia

NYX Round Lipstick Swatches


I bought these lipsticks last Christmas as a treat to myself, and I thought i'd share with you girls the swatches. I purchased these at CherryCulture.com when they were $0.99 cents each, which was a steal - but of course the deal is no longer valid (for now :)) They are in order from Harmonica, Tea Rose, Iris, Earth Angel, Rose Bud, Thalia, Heather, and Champagne! Can you tell I broke my Iris lipstick? It completely toppled over when I was doing a swatch on my arm, i'm so UPSET! Swatches:
Harmonica, Tea Rose, Iris, Earth Angel, Rose Bud, Thalia, Heather, and Champagne
