Sophomore Year Reflection

Sophomore Year | TheBlushingBeauty

Hey everyone, today’s post is about my Sophomore year of highschool. I just finished on June 10th and I’m so excited it’s summer! I’ll have so much more time to make content and videos which is what I enjoy doing. But I decided I would reflect on this year and talk about my classes and some things I learned this year.

Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoyed this video and found it helpful. Let me know what things you learned this past year in the comments. Give this post a like and follow me for more posts soon! Love you all and talk to you soon.

Summer Morning Routine + Movie Channel Announcement!

Summer Morning Routine | The Blushing Beauty

Hi everyone! Today I have 2 videos for you! The first one is my summer morning routine. I’ve been meaning to do this video for so long, but I have had an overwhelming amount of technical difficulty. After dealing with all of that, I now have it up!

Next, I’d like to announce that my brother made a youtube channel, called AP Studios. He is very into film and movies and has had a dream to be a director for as long as I can remember. His channel is about just that; all about movie news, reviews (and more as he explains in the video.) He uploaded his first video last night which was a review of Guardians of the Galaxy.

If you guys could subscribe to his channel, follow him on Twitter or on Pinterest, it would mean so much to me! He is going to be making great videos so if you guys are into movies he is a great person to watch!

Thanks so much for reading/watching! Be sure to like this post and leave a comment if you enjoyed. I’d love if you’d follow me on my social media linked on the right as well. I love you all and I’ll see you on Friday!

April 2014 Favorites

April Favorites 2014 | The Blushing Beauty
April is over, so it’s time to do my favorites! I’m excited this month is over because that means one month closer to summer… no school… warmer weather…sleeping in…

I could really use that right now.

But let’s get to the point of this post, shall we?

April Favorites 2014 | The Blushing Beauty

Hair faves! I have my Keratin Infusion Serum from Suave. I have had this for around 6 months (I have a full review here), and I’ve been liking more now than in the past! It’s a very small bottle so I can throw it in my bag and touch up on my frizzy hair (aka lion mane) while I’m on the go. This smooths my hair and adds shine, which is great. I’ve also been loving the Aussie Split end protector to put on my ends and seal them so they won’t break as easily. After every time I wash my hair I use this and it makes my hair smell good and keeps it soft!

Makeup! First up is my Covergirl 3 in 1 foundation… okay I won’t go too in depth with this cause you’ve all heard the amazing reviews on it. I agree that it gives nice coverage and looks pretty natural, and for me the biggest plus is that it stays on all. day. long. I’ve never had a longer lasting face product than this, even with a primer! My shade 845, warm beige is also the perfect match.

My Elf Translucent Mattifying Powder is the bomb. This is better than the Rimmel Stay Matte by far! It’s 1. cheaper (a mere 3 bucks), and 2. works a whole lot better. It sets my foundation and doesn’t look cakey! Plus the packaging is nice, it reminds me of Nars products. This is one of the most underlooked powders, and just drugstore products in general.

I’ve also been enjoying the Smashbox full exposure mascara. It layers with other mascaras nicely and isn’t too clumpy!

For lips, I cannot express my love for MAC’s angel lipstick enough. This is my favorite nudey pinky color; it just looks really pretty! I’m so glad I recieved this for my birthday. Underneath it I wear my Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Kiss to keep my lips moisturized and keep the dry skin away. I hauled this a month ago and I’ve been using it ever since.

Skincare! I love this baby, my Julep Cleansing Oil. Hands down the best all around makeup remover I’ve used. It’s nice because it’s breaks down all the stuff on the surface of your skin- whether that be dirt, makeup, or oil- and when you rinse it off it all slides off. And it’s gone. Fast and easy! And I’m not gonna lie… I use this on my eyes too cause I’m lazy. It doesn’t irritate them at all. Although it’s not the best for getting off waterproof mascara, it’s still nice.

Nails! Been loving my Julep Nail Polish in Monaco. It’s this gorgeous, vibrant cobalt blue. It’s super pretty and you get the best of a neon and a neutral. If turquoise and navy had a baby, this would be it.

Other beauty stuff! My cotton rounds are random but I love them! I use them with my nail polish remover and makeup remover. They rock. And then this cool hair clip I’ve had for awhile, called the croc clip, is great for sectioning off my thick hair.

MUSIC. I’ve been liking Two Door Cinema Club and Lana‘s new song West Coast. It’s great, it has a good mix of beats and a nice light song for the upcoming summer season. And I’ve also been liking music from Sam Woolf! He’s pretty much the best American Idol contestant if you haven’t heard of him. He’s a really talented and I love him and his music. My favorite song from him right now is probably Sailing Away by┬áDavid Gray! You should watch/vote for him on Idol and check out his youtube.

Those were my April Favorites! I hope you guys had a good month! I had a lot of fun┬ádoing this post. Don’t forget to like this post and follow me if you enjoyed. Thanks and I love you guys! I’ll see you on Sunday.
