FOTD + OOTD: Pippy Longstockings Reloaded

So this is my face of the day. Totally inspired by the Rocking longsleeved v neck I have on. It can be found at my lookbook site. This is just a simply silver smokey eye, wit a touch of glitter. It matches my top to a t. and looks super pretty on my skin tone.

Interview Me: MamiChula8153

Now, below you are about to meet Lee-Lee. Don't be fooled by her sweet demeanor, and gorgeous appearance, she is here to change the world and take names while doing it. One Mac lipstick at a time.

--->
Kousagi: How long have you been a fan of makeup?

LEE-LEE: I remember being a little girl & being fascinated watching my mom apply her makeup. For as far back as I can remember, I have always loved playing around with makeup & dressing up. But it wasn't until high-school that I was allowed to experiment with my looks haha :)

Kousagi: What are your top 5 brands? And why?


LEE-LEE: MAC- Quality/Prices. I adore MAC lipsticks the most.

Bobbi Brown- This brand targets women with yellow/tan undertones, which I otherwise have a hard time finding.

Illamasqua- Absolutely amazing quality. High pigmented beautiful colors.

Urban Decay- Who doesn't love this brand? So many staples of mine are from Urban Decay. Especially eyeshadows & the infamous primer potion!

Yves Saint Laurent- For when I want to indulge and splurge a little. Their mascara & lipsticks are breathtaking!



Kousagi: How often do you wear makeup? Do you have any favorite techniques that you like to use or teach?


LEE-Lee: I wear makeup on & off throughout the week. Definitely don't find it necessary to rock a smokey eye & bold lip on an everyday basis, so throughout the week I have a simple 5 min face routine which includes powder foundation, liner, mascara, and some lipgloss & I'm good to go! As for a favorite technique,  I think perfectly groomed brows are a MUST HAVE! I would never get them waxed; I tweeze them myself. And I do have a funny mascara routine that I use to get amazing "in your face" lashes. I actually have a whole video on it :)

Kousagi: Are you in school? If  so what for and why?


Lee-Lee: I'm studying Criminal Justice. My dream career would be to follow in my dad's footsteps & become an N.Y.P.D. police officer. I've taken a few civil service exams, and scored pretty high if I do say so myself! Lol. Now it's time to wait around for that call.*Fingers crossed*

Kousagi: What possessed you to get a youtube?


Lee-Lee: Actually, my fiance' had surprised me with a brand new laptop. It had an integrated webcam & I was just playing around, talking about my favorite hair products at the moment. On a whim, I uploaded it to Youtube. I was so surprised when people started to comment & subscribe. I didn't think anyone would want to watch me! Haha. It encouraged me to do more & more! The daily love I receive through comments & messages on my YouTube channel is so touching and inspirational. I love my subscribers so much- I can't describe how thankful I am for each & every one of them. YouTube has changed my life & I owe it all to my viewers!! :)

Kousagi: What kind of jewelry do you like to wear and where do you get it?


Lee-Lee: I usually become obsessed with one accessory at a time. Last summer it was big earrings, right now its big statement necklaces. It changes all the time! I love to shop for my jewelery at Forever21 and H&M. The prices are great since certain trends come & go quickly.

Kousagi: If you could be any  super heroine, who would you choose and why?


Lee-Lee: I love Lara Croft! She's a tough chica & sexy at the same time. She can do anything a man could do. Many people laugh when I tell them I'm studying to be an officer (especially men). But looks can be deceiving!! I may be extremely girly & love to wear dresses & heels but I'm also little & fiesty- like a chihuahua ;) Hahaha! I definitely have a tough/serious side in me that can command respect when needed.

Kousagi: What's your favorite type of music?


Lee-Lee: I would have to say R&B would be my #1. I also have a sweet spot for rap and hip-hop. Anyone who knows me knows that im obsessed with anything Drake at the moment, what girl isn't? Lol. and of course reggaeton!!

Kousagi: Who is your style Icon?


Lee-Lee: I am hugely inspired by the Kardashian sisters. Everything is always on point! From the hair to the makeup to dresses to the bags to the shoes! They are absolutely gorgeous and perfect in my eyes.

Kousagi: Favorite Fashion icon.


Lee-Lee: I can't pick one! The Kardashians, Beyonce, Jeannie Mai, Jennifer Lopez- the list can go on & on!

Kousagi: How old are you and What is your favorite color?


Lee-Lee: I'm 22 :) I love pink, white, & gold.

Kousagi: Any tips for beginners that want to become gurus?


Lee-Lee: Yes! Be yourself. Don't try to copy anyone else out there. People love to see you be the real you. Don't worry about subscribers and views- they will come in time. Be patient. Be dedicated but have fun. And have a thick skin when it comes to people who will bash you. Concentrate on the love, not the hate that you will receive. When it comes to the mean girls who spend time writing mean comments on every single one of my videos, or who message me mean things, or who create a whole blog dedicated to bashing gurus like myself, I like to tell myself "Mind over matter- I don't mind & you don't matter" God Bless!! Love you all!

How teen vogue expects you to spend your holiday.

So today, I opened teen vogue on my computer screen. Why? Because it's one of my favorite magazines. There is always something I can use. But today was a disappointment. I am referring to their 4 Bright Holiday Beauty ideas, which is a feature mind you. This is what they gave us.

Now, I don't know about anyone else, but these all seem to scream DUH! moments. I mean the Red lip movement has been here since the 80's. The electric eye look, on that poor  girl actually looks like she's been electrocuted. I have to admit I do like the hair extensions, but I've been doing that since forever.  The hair bows just screams contemporary. I'm kind of on the fence about them. I mean, I like the simplicity of it, you can wear them with just about anything, but then, it just seems to be more of that menswear as women's wear thing, that I am kind of despising. I mean yeah, borrowing your boyfriends blazer and sweaters are absolutely adorable, if I had one I totally would, but when you rob your boyfriends entire wardrobe, it kinda makes you think, that maybe you should just remodel your own.

Makeup Mondays: Blackened Midori

So here's a segment I like to call makeup mondays. It's a tutorial, for a deep black and green smokey eye look. I plan on doing a new one every monday.  I thought about doing it on tuesdays, but I'm just not very patient. So Here is what the style looks like.

and here is the video for it, I also place my tutorials, on my youtube page, which is why it has a intro vid and such to it. But the credits show everything that is used in it.

Hope you enjoy it.

you can visit my twitter to see the pictures I've taken!
kurokousagi.tumblr.com They're amazing Everything is so crisp and clear!

I AM SO PISSED OFF! The heels DON"T FIT. And why don't they fit??? BECAUSE THEY SENT ME THE WRONG SIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!How hard is it? I NEED A NINE WIDE!!!!! NOT A SIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then to add to it, I had a serious headache, and couldn't really do anything yesterday and plus, I was warming up for dance practice, which I always do with tap shoes, always and without fail! The "Athletic Director" comes downstairs, and is like are those steel tap shoes? Are their any other type of tap shoes?! (keep in mind, this is the OLD GYM!) Um I don't want you tap dancing in here, we just re-did the floors. Well, I've been tapping since I was two and this is the same floor we danced on, I checked before I came in. " His exact words" = "Well If I knew you'd been dancing since you were two, (insert eye roll) then I would have told you no then too. (points finger) Are you even on the dance team??" Of course. "He's like you're aware that tap is not part of our program?" I'm aware. "then don't tap in here." and he just walks away! It took all I had not to nail him in the back of the head with my tap shoe, Ignorant bastard~!!
Then to add to my already bad day, I started tearing up when I had trouble with the straight leaps, and although I perfected the backwards summersalt (Yes, I know that's spelled incorrectly, you stupid red line), I had a HORRIBLE headache, like things were swimming in front of my eyes, and when I finally got picked up, The car was full of LOUD little Girls, meaning that it just got worse as the car ride went on,and on top of that, Poseidon just decided that he was tired of humans, and dropped a fucking tidal wave on our tiny city, that much rain is just seriously unnecessary. When I got home, I grabbed a wet washcloth put it over the eye that hurt and I fell asleep and slept through the whole night, I didn't even wake up for dinner, which I'm kind of upset over because it was Hoagies and my mother's ultimate potato fries, which if you ain't in the know is the probably the BEST tasting potato fries ever, in like the entire world.
Then I had to get up even earlier than usual so I could turn my room upside down looking for a white pair of pants for my sister to wear during her Performance today, but it wasn't all bad because in the midst I found my Reversable vest!!!!!!! I really like the outfit I'm wearing today too, so be on the look out for outfit of the day posts...Or maybe I'll just make a video of it, along with the four tutorials, I have to show everyone. YAY! All of those will be posted today! I refuse to go another day!!!!!!!!!!! went to Krogers, and saw Hayley Williams on the cover of Spin and had to get it. And at this I end my rant entry.
