e.l.f. Studio Makeup Clutch Palette Swatches

Hey y'all! I got this e.l.f. Studio Makeup Clutch Palette for Christmas a few years ago and I only would use the blushes. But, I was looking through my makeup collection to try and use things I haven't used yet this weekend and, lo and behold, I found this palette. The eyeshadows are soooooo pretty! I looked on and this palette is $30 (but I think it's only $10 during the holidays). Here are the swatches of everything in this palette with a picture of the palette for reference first:

I will be going top row from left to right, then going down by each row (each picture will be a new row). <3

Guest Post by Natasha from Project Pan!

Hey everyone! Here is a guest post from Natasha from Project Pan!!!! GO CHECK OUT HER BLOG HERE: link

Making Your Perfume Last Longer.
There’s nothing worse than spritzing yourself with perfume in the morning only for it to be gone by noon. Here are some tips to keep your favourite scent on you without it being over-bearing.
1. Layer Your Fragrance! Is there a matching shower gel and body lotion for your favourite perfume? Use them. This way not only is your fragrance not being mixed with any other scent, it is giving it layers. Sometimes perfume doesn’t come with a matching set. No worries! Try and find products that have similar notes. For example, if you favourite fragrance is Jessica Simpson’s Fancy Love, try a vanilla body wash and moisturizer.
2. Find the Hot Spots! The scent of perfume on your skin is activated by warmth. Because of this you want to apply your fragrance where your veins are most visible. These places include your:
· Neck
· Bust
· Inner elbow
· Inner knee
· And wrists
3. Bring Back-Up! Make sure to carry an atomizer with you that is filled with your scent. Touch up through-out the day when you find the scent is fading.
Now you’re ready to strut your stuff and have a beautiful scent follow you. Be careful though! Don’t spray too much as it can be over-powering and end up being offensive to some people.
What perfume are you planning on wearing on Valentine’s Day?
I think I’m going to go with my favourite- Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.

Cute Ways to Show Team Spirit

The Super Bowl is today!!! I am so excited to sit down and watch all those funny commercials (and I guess the game too). ;) I wanted to do this post on how to show team spirit in a fun and fashionable way... This doesn't just apply for just the Super Bowl either; use these tips at your next school game! Hope you find these tips useful!!! <3

1. Wear a jersey - It can be your favorite player's or even your boyfriend's. Let it rock the outfit by wearing jeans and black flats. All the attention should be on the jersey!

2. Paint your face - If you paint something little on your cheek (your favorite player's number or just football black stripes) you won't look overrated for a game day party. It's cute and supportive!

3. Wear team colors - If you don't have a jersey then wear the team color using anything in your closet! You gotta blend in with the crowd if you don't wanna stick out. :P You can also buy ribbon to put in your hair like cheerleaders do. This will complete your "full of pep" outfit. :)
4. Make some jewelry - If you wanna add even more pep to your team color outfit, make some jewelry to support your team!!!!

5. Decorate your shoes - This one is for all you mega fans... If you have white canvas shoes you can paint them to look sooooooo cool by using team colors, numbers, name, etc.
6. Make a shirt - If you don't own any team color clothes, have a get together with your friends and make shirts that are supportive to your team and unique for your style.

7. Paint your nails - This will make your team spirit look complete!
8. Wear a creative makeup look - Whether your eye shadow or your lipstick is a team color, try to have some fun in showing your team pride!

Enjoy the game!!!!!!!!!! <3
