Lana Del Rey & Underground Music

Hello lovely people! Today i'll be talking about a whole different topic, non-beauty or fashion related, which is music. We all listen to music, I feel like it's something necessary in our daily life, well, for me at least. I personally gravitate towards alternative/indie music, maybe a little bit of pop here and then. For me to get obsessed over a song, the beat and the lyrics has to be perfection, the song has to speak to me even if I don't relate to its lyrics whatsoever.
Lana Del Rey.
Elizabeth Grant who's known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is one of those singers who literally, I mean literally, NEVER fails to impress me with her songs, or I have to say her little master pieces. The lyrics, the melody, the story behind every song, all of it is on point every single time. I found out about her 3 years ago when she released her biggest hit single ''Video Games'' and I fell in love with her ever since. Del Rey is known for her poetic approach to her songs, she shares a little piece of her life in every song, and every album she came out with tells a story. Del Rey is classified as an alternative singer with a bit of rock/indie tones depending on which song you're listening to. When you listen to any of her songs, you can definitely hear her sorrows and heart breaks in her way of singing, I can't control myself from getting lost into her world. Lana Del Rey came out with 3 albums, ''Born To Die'' , ''Paradise'' which is the second edition of ''Born To Die'', and her latest one which came out on June of this year which is called ''Ultraviolence'', and must I say, ALL 3 of them are perfect in their own way. Each of them has a different theme or ''story'', but they all link together as in the end, it's her life.
If I could describe her in 3 words, I would simply have to say: Unique, Captivating and Emotive. She truely deserves the same recognition Miley Cyrus has for example, but for the right reasons.
Here are my absolute favorite LDR songs. Keep in mind I had to narrow it down from 84 to 20 songs just to keep this post short, but if I could mention all 84 I would cause they're all just amazing.

Fresh Faced Makeup

Hello lovely people! Hope you're having an awesome Friday! Today I'm going to show you how to achieve an extremely easy makeup look that's focused on big lashes, bold eyebrows and glossy pink lips. You can call this a ''No Makeup'' makeup look.
So here we go.
Products Used.
1) L'oreal True Match concealer, shade: 04
2) Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara
3) Benefit they're Real! Mascara
4) The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit, shade: 03
5) Bourjois Chocolate Bronzing Powder
6) Gosh blush, shade: Flower Power
7) L'oreal Extraordinaire by Colour Riche, shade: Rose Melody

Step 1) As always, you have to start with your base, whether it's Foundation, BB cream or Concealer. My preference is using concealer only under the eyes and on blemishes to get the most natural look.
Step 2) The eyebrows! Ofcourse, you can't forget about them eyebrows. I simply fill them in using the body shop brow & liner kit. If you wanna see a more in-depth method of how I fill them in just check out my previous post.
Step 3 and the main focus of this look! Big lashes! The key to achieving big, bold lashes without using any falsies, is to layer TWO Mascaras. A lengthening one and a volumizing one. One coat of each mascara will give you two coats of length and volume! AND don't forget to curl your lashes using an eyelash curler! My personal favorite lengthening mascara is the Benefit they're Real! and the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless mascara is PERFECT for volumizing!
Step 4) Using a blush brush, apply a pink/coral blush to the apples of your cheeks.
Step 5) Contouring. Since this look is focused on the big lashes and eyebrows, I suggest contouring the cheekbones to balance out the look and give shape and dimension to the face. So, using a small slightly dense brush, contour the hollows of your cheekbones (by doing the ''fishy'' face), temples and jaw line using a bronzer.
Last step) Apply a pink/coral lipstick or lipgloss that matches the colour of your blush to pull the whole look together.

Hello lovely people! First of all I'd like to apologize for not posting on Friday, If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I had no internet and I wasn't able to create any blog posts or nothing, but thank god everything is figured out and i'll be continuing with my schedule which is posting every Monday and Friday!<3

If you've seen my ''Bare'' blog post, then you know that I lack in one very important face feature, which are the eyebrows. Yes, it's sad, i know. BUT, this is where makeup comes along and makes everything look ''perfect'' even if it's just for a couple of hours. So, in this post, i'll be telling you how I fill in my eyebrows.
The ONLY product I use is The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit in the shade 03, which is the darkest shade. It has 2 colours, a Dark Brown and a Black, but I only use the Dark Brown in the kit, And to fill in my eyebrows I use a Random liner brush from H&M, which is pretty good and quite precise.

Tip 1) NEVER use a Black powder to fill in your eyebrows, it will look super unnatural and that's not what we're going for. The Key is filling in your eyebrows as natural as possible.

Tip 2) They say '' Try using a shade or 2 lighter than your natural hair colour to fill in your eyebrows '' but no. I've tried that, never showed up, never worked out. I personally recommend using the EXACT same shade of you natural EYEBROW colour!! BUT, the secret to getting a natural look, is to fill in with a light hand in the inner parts, AND then build up the colour moving towards the tail of your eyebrow.

Like I said, they're only 3 STEPS!

Step 1) Using the brown powder and the liner brush, from the Bottom, Draw a line that starts from the inner part to the tail.

Step 2) Draw another line at the top, BUT, this time the line starts from the ARCH of the eyebrow to the tail. Then fill in the space we created with the powder.

Step 3 and the MOST IMPORTANT step! Using NO excess product, simply take the liner brush and start filling in the inner part of the eyebrow using the left-over product on the brush! This way, you'll create a natural looking brow!

OPTIONAL! After filling in both eyebrows and everything looks nicely shaped, you can use an Eyebrow Gel to set them in place. A good one is the Essence eyebrow gel.
Personally, I sometimes do this step and sometimes I skip it, but I don't feel like it does a huge difference to my eyebrows.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you're having a nice day.:)x See you in my next post!<3

ANNOUNCEMET!! From now on, i'll be posting only on Mondays and Fridays! As unfortunately, i'll be going back to school and I won't have much time to post frequently like I am now. Make sure to follow me on Twitter @EveryythingElle to be updated. x

Youtube. To some, it's just a website where you can find new music, search weird cat videos or look up Channing Tatum funny moments, but no, it's more than that. It's a community consisting of all kinds of youtubers, such as beauty gurus and vloggers, it's a hobby and a job, it's a place where if you need anything, you'll find. About 3 and half years ago, I stumbled upon this beauty guru named Bethany Mota, at the time she was 16 and was creating all kinds of beauty related videos, she had about, ummm maybe a million subscribers? and was simply making videos to the public, to the ''fans'' who she now calls her best friends, to all her loyal supporters who love her personality, she was one of a kind and still is. Look at her now! She has nearly 8 MILLION subscribers, won TOP 2 on Dancing With The Stars, has her own clothing line with Aeropostale AND created her own perfume. 

There's a massive amount of youtubers just like her who accomplished so much at a very young age, they're a true inspiration to not only myself, but to millions and millions all over the world. They all started with a mind-set to just have fun and not really bother about the amount of people who will watch these videos or not, and now, they're what we call '' Youtube Famous ''. 

Zoe Sugg.<3

In those 3 years, I've watched A LOT of youtubers with different categories, but there is one specific youtuber who I love the most, dedicated to the most, I consider her my idol, I support everything she does and honestly, no words can describe how genuine she is, how she respects, loves and treats her subscribers in a way that warms my heart. Her name is Zoella Sugg AKA Zoe. This woman changed my life in so many ways! First of all, she's a British beauty guru, but she does random videos from time to time, she uploads every Sunday and she currently has 6 and a half million subscribers. She's diagnosed with Anxiety ever since she was 14 and now she's 24 years old and still battling panic attacks. This woman wrote a book called ''Girl Online'', has her own bath and beauty range ''Zoella Beauty'', she's been on tons of interviews , been on the radio AND won 5 awards! I'm actually tearing up just talking about how far she's come and seeing how happy she is now with her boyfriend who is also a youtuber, Alfie Deyes (#Zalfie), and it literally makes me out of words, there relationship is legit perfection and I love them both in a way I really can't describe! You just have to see for yourselves how awesome they really are!

 It's crazy how you can fall in love with people you've never met or talked to, but no they're not strangers. Because they tend to share their lives on the internet whether it's on Youtube, Twitter or Instagram, I don't conisder them as strangers, at all actually! Not only Zoe and Alfie, but ALL the youtubers I watch, call me creepy but I see them as family. 

There is so much I could say about these human beings but no words will ever do them justice. So, down below i'll link the channels of my all time favorite youtubers and please give them a chance. I PROMISE you, you'll be obsessed, just like I am!
