Bubblegum Pink Glitter Tears AND Review Of Orglamix Glitter Pigment

I'm so excited about this makeup look.  I tried out some Orglamix Glitter Pigment in Every Rose Has It's Thorn.  I have to tell you, this glitter is amazing!!  I love everything about this brand, from the natural ingredients right down to the packaging.  Orglamix is cruelty free, vegan and PETA certified.  

This Bubblegum Pink Glitter Tears look is inspired by Hailie Barber.  She is so adorable, I just love all her makeup looks so much.  

For this look I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bone palette and added some Buxom eyeshadow in La La Lavish.  For some inner corner highlight I used Urban Decay eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy

Check out my video at the bottom of this post for a full review and tutorial.

My Used Clothing Haul || Uptown Cheapskate || Runway Fashion Exchange

I love shopping...who doesn't?!  But shopping as often as I would like is not in the budget.  This is why I love shopping at used clothing stores such as Uptown Cheapskate and Runway Fashion Exchange.  They offer gently used clothing at a fraction of the price.  Some of the items are brand new and still have the tags on them!  They carry high end clothing brands such as Miss Me and Free People and many more.  This is highly beneficial because we all know how much those high end clothing items can be.

How these stores work....it's super easy.  You can bring in your clothing in and they will review your items while you shop around the store.  They prepare a quote based on the condition, brand, style of your items.  You can then take the cash or get a higher amount in store credit, 25% higher!!  That's crazy!!!

This is a great way to clean out your closet for more clothes. ;)

This was one of my favorite finds!
This was from Gap and still had the tags on it.
Retails for $80!!

Summer Bronzed Makeup Look

This summer I have been living in this makeup look right here.  I've been sunbathing and going to the lake more than ever and I love it.  Being tan just makes me happier.  Check out the video for a step by step tutorial of this look including my favorite moisturizer.

10 Summer Styles that won't break the bank

Summer is the time for cut offs, t-shirts and sneakers....or dresses and sandals.  Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Ross, Styles for Less, Target, Rue 21 & Tilly's are just some of my favorite stores to shop.  Plato's Closet, Uptown Cheapskate, Clothing Revival and Runway Fashion Exchange are some used clothing stores that I frequently visit.  They have such great deals on used clothing, you just can't pass it up, or at least, I can't.

Here are some of my favorite styles for throughout the summer months.


Look no. 1 

This look features Converse Chuck Taylor High Tops in the great teal color and cut off jeans.  I found these sneakers for a discounted price at Ross Dress For Less.  Most of my clothing I find at used clothing stores such as Plato's Closet.  My shorts are American Eagle from Plato's Closet.  This top is actually very long but not quite long enough to wear as a dress so I just tied it up in a knot on one side.

Look no. 2

I found this top at Rue 21 and it is very oversized so I tied this one in a know as well.  These fun sandals are from Target and they are so comfy.  I tried to find them on their website because I really wanted to grab another pair but they are not on there anymore.  They do have plenty of other cute sandals in this same style as well as others that are super cute.

Summer Styles justmelsdotcom

Look no. 3

This adorable dress and sweater are from Love Culture.  These are oldies but goodies.  I paired this with some fringe sandals I found at Marshall's.  
This gorgeous necklace is from Gems in Vogue on Etsy.  It is similar to the Lana Jewelry Blake Lariat Necklace that Jaclyn Hill wears but for a fraction of the price.  Use my coupon code 'mels10' for 10% off.
I am also wearing my Foxy Locks Superior 22" Vanilla Frappe Ombre extensions.  Coupon code 'foxymel' for a free gift with your order.  These extensions are so beautiful and make me feel so beautiful.  It's so easy to create fun braids and other hairstyles with them.

Look no. 4 

This is definitely one of my favorite looks because I distressed this shirt myself.  I had been searching and searching for a distressed rock and roll style t-shirt for what seemed like months so I decided to just do it myself.  There will be a video tutorial coming soon.  Be sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel and keep your eyes open for that one.
I snatched this shirt up from Rue 21 when I found the top from Look no. 2.  These cut off jeans are American Eagle and I found them at Plato's Closet.  They are a little too big so I just fold over the top and it's perfect.
Also wearing my Foxy Locks extensions again.  More often than not, I am wearing my extensions because I love them so much.  Don't forget about my coupon code, 'foxymel' for your free gift.

Look no. 5

Another great find at Plato's Closet for this outfit.  This is just a plain white tee but it's so comfy.  It is american eagle and I am obsessed with their clothing.  Their t-shirts are so soft and comfy, that is actually their name lol.  
Again I am wearing this beautiful necklace from Gems in Vogue, coupon code 'mels10' for 10% off.  You won't regret it.

Look no. 6

This jean jacket is another great find at Plato's Closet.  I love how versatile this jacket is.  I put this together with this summer dress from Tilly's.  These espadrille wedges I found at Payless Shoe Source.  Necklace is Gems in Vogue of course.

Summer Styles justmelsdotcom

Look no. 7

This beautiful dress was at Maurices and not available so I linked their dress page.  They have so many cute dresses.  I wanted this one a bit shorter in the front so I tied it in a knot.  Knots fix everything!  This cute arm cuff is from Rue 21.

Summer Styles justmelsdotcom

Look no. 8

Ross Dress For Less always has so many tee's and tanks to choose from.  I found this pretty light pink tank there and it is so comfy.  Again, tied in a knot.  I didn't realize I tied so many things in knots until I wrote this post. 

Summer Styles justmelsdotcom

Look no. 9

Asymmetrical shirts can be so cute.  This tank is definitely one of them.  I don't like crop tops or showing my tummy but this shirt does just a little and I think it's ok.  This shirt was another find at Ross Dress For Less.  Shorts are American Eagle from Plato's Closet.  I have now realized that all my shorts are American Eagle from Plato's Closet.  They are the most comfortable and fit me so well.  I am wearing my comfy sandals from Target as well.

Look no. 10

This final look was from a day of thunderstorms and rain.  This adorable bralette is from a Buckle clearance rack.  It is a coral color and is just so pretty.  This top is from Marshall's and is so soft and comfy.  It was perfect for hanging in on this rainy day.
How cute is this phone case and popsocket?!  I found this case at Walmart.  Have you heard of Popsockets?  I have talked about them before and I also have a video about them on my channel.  Here is the link for you to watch my Popsocket video.  You can use my link to purchase your own Popsocket.  Just click this link and it will give you a $2 off coupon.

Get ready with me and Jaclyn Hill

Come get ready with me and Jaclyn Hill, haha, the palette that is.

The Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette is something you definitely need to get.  The pigment is crazy good and the shades are so beautiful.  I can't wait to create more looks for you guys.  Jaclyn has said on her snapchat that they will be doing a restock in August so I am hoping to get my own palette then.  Be sure to follow Jaclyn Hill and Morphe for updates on this palette restock.  You can also sign up to be notified when it is in stock on the Morphe site here.

The shadows in this palette are just so gorgeous.  This palette really does have it all!  You can create so many different looks, all with this one palette.

GRWM JaclynHillxMorphe Palette justmelsdotcom

I love smoking out the red shades and adding white eyeliner in the lower waterline.  The white eyeliner really opens up your eyes.   For my winged eyeliner I used the NYX Epic Ink Liner, which is my fave liner, and some Ardell Demi Wispies.
