Spring Makeup Tutorial: Pop of color

Happy Monday Sunshiners! I'm feeling so wonderful, set my alarm for 6am so I can take a walk before work, which I'm finally back at work after 2 weeks of having to be off. Surprisingly I really miss it, like I love my job! Plus I miss clothes, a lot!

If you've seen my TMI video on then you've seen this wonderful pop of color eyeliner, which is honestly my new favorite favorite thing! So if you're feeling daring, check it out so you can recreate it too! :)

Too Much Info

Hello Sunshiners! Been a little bit I feel like! Finally able to speak, sing, smile, and live life again so very excited. Being down for 11 days really made me kind of appreciate enjoying life, so I'm quite inspired to live it to the fullest! Going to take each day and jampack it with as much as possible, including getting outside and going for runs (because hello I was in bed as this time and I need some exercise). I did get a lot done though, even though if you saw me on the computer in my pjs in my room you'd think I was just messing around when in actuality I really focused on promoting my youtube channel and getting to know as many youtubers as possible on twitter, really networked the entire time. Now I'm super excited to be at 136 SUBSCRIBERS! Which is crazy, but has actually motivated me to make as many videos as possible because the more ones you make, the better you get.

I feel like I'm really starting to get a hang of it and hope that'll help it seem more professional. I am a perfectionist and although it helps me work really hard, it also makes me not think anything is perfect enough to be done.

Just for kicks I made two new videos because I felt like to my audience I needed to provide them with a make up type of video if I was just doing a ranting video. Here is my TMI TAG because now you can feel confident that you know way too much information on me:

Naked Basics Palette Tutorial

HAPPY MONDAY SUNSHINERS! Since I still can't talk/smile/move my face, I did a quick little tutorial on how to do a very simple eyeshadow look using the Urban Decay Naked Basics, honestly it doesn't get any more basic than this! I've worn this look in some past posts as well, just showing how easy it is to recreate for an everyday look. Yet adds something more than just no eyeshadow.

I've Conformed to Pastels

Happy Sunday everyone, not a very happy one for me due t still not being able to talk and my jaw hurting me, but hey I'm alive right?

Felt the Spring spirit today and decided to paint my nails this wonderful mint green, yes pastel! I've conformed to liking pastel, which I did say I did just not particularly on myself, but I've changed! PLEASE EXCUSE THE NAIL POLISH MESS!!! I haven't had a chance to clean up the extra on my skin. Ooooops!
So this mint from Sally Hansen Extreme Wear (which I totally swear by) is such a great color! Plus it makes me think of ice cream due to the fact it's called Mint Sorbet
I also didn't want to just do mint, I wanted something different and fun and very Spring! So I added this cute green sparkles on top of this white color. So glad I put the green sparkles on the white because green on green, EEEEK!

I like the whole idea of nails being another accessory! It adds to an outfit like a necklace :)
Anyone other Spring nail trends you're obsessed with?

Spring Fever

Yes yesterday was the first day of Spring and I am so unbelievably excited to bring out all those Spring colors and wear as much floral as I want! To get you in the spirit I did the I Heart Spring Tag and basically had the chance to get all excited for the Spring. So if you just have 5 minutes to spare and need some Spring excitement then take a quick look :) Here's a quick photo of my make up though, wearing my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm in shade Charm. Also couldn't help wearing this bow, just brought the whole Spring look together!

No More Ice Cream Please

Yes, I actually uttered those words after literally eating way too much ice cream these past couple of days. If you didn't know, I just got my wisdom teeth out on Monday so it's been one bed bound Spring Break for me. Luckily it's gone a lot better than I thought it was going to, now that doesn't mean I didn't have pain or it was all easy, but I thought it was going to be a lot worse.

My face is still swollen, I can't smile, can't really talk, and can't really open my jaw, but I ate eggs and hot cereal today so I'm one happy camper. I did have to eat the hot cereal with applesauce to help it go down better. (quick tip for all getting their wisdom teeth out)

Whoever said you "lose weight" from getting your wisdom teeth was very wrong, I'm sure I've gained weight! That's why after feeling awful from the sugar, I decided to start switching to juices instead. This particular juice has 3 carrots, 1/4 beet, an apple, and some kale. Nothing fancy, just needed some veggies in my system.

My swollen face is also going down, kind of. Thanks to this heating/cooling pad thing from the grocery store, which yes has zoo animals on it and is suppose to be for kids. It's really helped since now cold wont help with my swollen face.

Just wanted to post an update of how I'm surviving this, basically my life at the moment.
I've never wanted to put make up on so bad!  
Anyone else had their wisdom teeth out before?

Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation Review+Tutorial

Happy Monday! For every new video I do at I will also do a post and even though I got my wisdom teeth out this morning, yes OUCHIE, I just couldn't let down my promise on my new Alexasunshine83 schedule of uploading Monday's and Friday's and I really wanted to let you guys know how excited I am about this foundation.

Now I'm super picky and I tried so many different kinds because I wanted something "light" yet not oily and I had been wearing my old one since I was 14 and now I'm almost 20 so it was a challenge! After many visits (and lies) at Sephora I finally just tried the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation and wow, can I just say it's like magic? I could write a like 2 page post on it, so that's why I made a video instead. Enjoy and let me know what foundation you're into right now or if you've ever tried this one ! :)

2. I've never finished the movie The Notebook, not a fan of love stories (sorry if I offend anyone!)

3. Right now I have 26 half empty water bottles scattered around my room, I have an issue of not throwing them away!

4. I have flat feet so I can't wear heels or wedges, only platform.

5. I have commitment issues with clothes, I usually return things I buy within 2 days of purchasing them.

6. I dislike lemons, limes, green beans, onions, garlic, Dasani water, Pomegranate, honey, green tea, tea in general (I know I'm sad I don't like tea either), ... actually there's too many foods/drinks I dislike to even name! ha!

9.  I've only read two books in my life.

11. I change my mind a lot, probably the most indecisive person ever!

And then the question The Make Up Lady sent me :DD)
1. If you could listen to only 1 song, which one would you pick?
That's so hard! Oh my goodness, alright, well Bastille is ultimately my favorite band so I guess Laughter Lines by them, here's the link

DAN SMITH DAN SMITH DAN SMITH, my life would be complete no joke. Sorry fan girl moment..

8. Of all the names in the world, what name do you like best? And if you have a why, tell us that also.. Penelope because it's a relaxing name and adorable. No great reason really.

Eyeliner For Dayzz

IT'S FRIDAY! AH! Even though the weekend doesn't apply to me (due to the fact I have a retail job), I'm still excited that spring break has started and no school, but sadly I'm getting my wisdom teeth out Monday so no exciting Spring Break plans or anything, just my bed.

You'll probably see lots of posts though because I wont be able to do anything else, yay for the internet! Anyone I really loved my eyeliner yesterday so just some quick pictures of how it turned out using the Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes Gel with a Slanted brush, I winged it out for the first time so that's why I'm so excited about it! Not perfect, but hey it's my first time.


Anyone have difficulty with winged eyeliner too?

There's Beauty In Pain: OOTD

Hello hello Sunshiners! It's Thursday and I'm officially on spring break, no wild parties, just honestly work. Honestly I miss so much school that spring break is like nothing to me hah

Just a quick outfit of the day post from yesterday, I really loved my outfit because it was so fun! Crop purple top for Nordstrom, black leggings from Forever21, daisy necklace from Forever21 (yes you will be seeing this necklace a lot), and then super fun yellow flower shoes from Target. Of course my scrunchie just added even more fun and wrapping my jean jacket really pulled the look together. I was a tad scared to tie that jean jacket around my waste because I remember in 2nd grade when I use to do it, but it adds a cool young hip touch. I'm totally obsessed with the trend! Also couldn't help but test out my new camera, yes the Canon T3i Rebel, can't help but take pictures now!

Gonna go film a new video for Monday :) OH YEAH MONDAYS AND FRIDAYS are officially my youtube schedule, so make sure to keep checking back !

Also painted my nails this fun pink with sparkles :)


How's your day going sunshiners??? :D
