Nail Polish Color Rave: OPI Flower-to-Flower

                                                    Nail Polish Rave: OPI Flower-to-Flower
I came across this nail polish color a few months ago when I was getting a manicure and pedicure at my local Nail Salon. I had noticed the salon got a bunch of new OPI polishes, and the one that caught my eye was this one. To me, it is such a goregous shade of pink with just the right amount of shimmer to it. The glitter in it is so fine that I think of it as diamond dust. I would say I wore this color most of the summer (in fact, im wearing it right now!) It retails for $8 for all you intrested in the price. I deffinitely recommend this color if you like pink, sparkly nail polishes!

Get gorgeous curls like Vanessa Hudgens

^This is the picture of Vanessa Hudgens that inspired me to find out how to get gorgeous, large curls like Vanessa Hudgens. And so I did, and I'm here to teach you how.
Step #1: Wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner designed to add volume to your hair
Step #2: Blow dry your hair with a round brush. Twist sections of hair around the round brush and blow dry so you'll get large loose curls.
Step #3: Spritz a heat protectant designed specifically for curling your hair in your hair. Brush it through to distribute the product evenly.
Step #4: Split hair into two sections
Step#5: Take medium-sized sections of hair and using a large barrel curling iron, curl your hair starting from the end, rolling upwards. Leave hair wrapped around iron for a few seconds, then release.
Step #6: Once you finish the bottom section, release the top section of your hair and begin curling pieces of your hair towards and away from your face, alternating with each piece. (If you have bangs, place the curling iron under them and wrap bangs around the iron, creating bounce and volume)
Step #7: Spray with a extra-hold hairspray and your good to go! Enjoy your hairstyle! :)

Jenna's Summer Makeup Favorites

Sadly, now that summer is coming to an end, I figured I would tell you guys my favorite summer products.

1. You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer- This tinted moisturizer is great to use when you don't want to wear a face full of foundation. Plus, it has SPF 15 in it. If you want to read more on this product, read my blog post/review on You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer.
2. MAC Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks- This Dazzleglass is the perfect shade of pink with the perfect amount of sparkle. Plus, it has a brush applicator, which I absolutely love!
3. Estee Lauder Lipstick in Pink Parfait- I love this shade of pink! It's sort of hot pink/magenta colored and is a very buildable lipstick. It's a must have in my collection.
4. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe- I can't find enough words to describe this foundation. It's amazing!The color matches me perfectly and the consistency is so creamy and goes on easily using your fingers or a foundation brush. It covers up all imperfections where I don't even have to use a concealer! I recommend this foundation to everyone.
5. Sephora Eyeshadow in Aspen Summit- The color of this eyeshadow is a shimmery white and is perfect for the inner corner of your eye to look wide awake.
6. Urban Decay Single Shadow in Half Baked- This eyeshadow is sooo pigmented and shimmery and is perfect for summer!
7. Urban Decay Single Shadow in Toasted- This is such a pretty shade of pink and is so shimmery. It's perfect for all over your lid.
8. Urban Decay Single Shadow in Buck- I absolutely love this matte brown color for blending out shadows in your crease and is such a nice color for fall.
9. Urban Decay Single Shadow in Virgin- This shadow is such a great highlight color and is also nice all over the lid for a soft colored look.
10. Covergirl Wetsticks Amazemint Lipgloss in Pink Positive- I use this gloss when I wear a bold look on my eye and I want a nude lip. This color is very sheer and pretty with the right amount of sparkle. I wear it over every pink lipstick shade I have and it looks great.
11. Urban Decay Primer Potion- This primer is great for the summer because it really makes my shadow stick to my lid all day long.
12. Sheer Cover Base Perfector- This primer smoothed imperfections for a smooth foundation/concealer application and minimizes the appearance of pores. It holds down my foundation and concealer all day long.
13.Smashbox Eyeliner in Caviar(Black)- The eyeliner is super creamy and glides on your eye easily.
14. Nars Laguna Bronzer (Shimmer) This bronzer is the perfect bronze color with shimmer and looks great on any skintone.
15. Tarte Bronzer in Princess (Matte)- This bronzer is great if you don't like shimmer bronzers. It's my favorite matte bronzer.
16. MAC Pigment in Tan- This pigment is soooo shimmery, which I love, and is great if you want to wear a bronze goddess sort of look in the summer.
17. MAC Pigment in Old Gold- If you like gold shadows you'll love this pigment. It's a super pretty gold color with a ton of shimmer.
18. Clinique Blended Face Powder Transparency 3- This powder is great to set foundation and make it last.
19. Maybelline Trio in #40 Chocolate Mousse- The colors in this trio are really pigmented and pretty. It makes a perfect soft brown look for fall.

Jenna's Everyday Makeup Products!

Here's a list of all the makeup products I use to achieve my everyday makeup routine. If you want a blog post/review on a specific product, please feel free to leave a comment below or tweet me :) Enjoy!

1. For my face, I usually switch on and off from foundations everyday, but I have been grabbing for my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe the most. (Some days I also use my Sheer Cover mineral foundation in the color Buff, and others I will grab for my You Rebel Lite tinted moisturizer)
2. For concealer, I use Sheer Cover Concealer Duo in Light/Medium. (In the summer I use the medium, in the winter I use light)
3. For eye shadow, I usually use my Urban Decay Naked Palette. If I don't use that palette, I'll use either MAC pigments or Covergirl trios.
4. I have a ton of mascaras and there's not one that I use more than the other, Lol. My favorite mascaras would probably have to be the Sephora Atomic Volume Mascara and my Benefit Bad Gal Lash.
5. For eyeliner I use either Smashbox eyeliner in Caviar (Color: Black) or Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Zero. (Color: Black)

Brushes I Use: I usually use an Estee Lauder Foundation Beush for my foundation, and sometimes my fingers. For concealer, I use an Estee Lauder concealer brush. For eyeshadow, I use brushes ranging from Sonia Kashuk, Mary Kay, and Estee Lauder. To apply my Smashbox Gel Liner, I use a Sephora Professional Eyeliner brush in Number #15.

Benefit Cosmetics You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

Hey, everyone! About a month ago I had seen Blair's (Juicystar07 on YouTube) Review on the Benefit Cosmetics You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer. A few weeks ago I went out to Sephora, and finally picked it up. I had been looking for a good tinted moisturizer for a while, and this one is perfect. The color matches me incredibly well, and the formula is so creamy. It doesn't get cakey looking throughout the day, either. It costs $30 and is definitely worth it. It comes in two shades for all of you that are intrested. It gives a really nice finish that isn't noticible while at the same time covering up your imperfections. The tube is 1.7 OZ and available at Sephora and Online. This is a great product for the summer or all year round when you don't feel like wearing heavy foundation. This product won't melt off in the hot summer sun and I definitely recommend it! :)

Want your hair to smell amazingggggg?!

Victoria's Secret Hypergloss Shampoo & Conditioner
Scent: Juiced Berry

Leave it to Victoria's Secret to make a shampoo and conditioner that leaves your hair smelling amazing allll day long. My hair even smelt like berry the next day, too. I have been using this shampoo and conditionar for a few weeks now, and as you can tell by the picture it looks like I only used it a few times. The bottle is 11.8 FL OZ. First, I'll start off with the shampoo. After using it just one time, it made by hair feel super soft, even when I was rinsing it out. The conditioner made my hair feel so so so soft and silky. Both of them made my hair look really shiny after just one use. Their $10.00 each but their having a deal right now where you can get 3 for $19.98. The shampoo has Superfruit Shine Complex and Provitamin B5 in it. The conditioner also has the Superfruit Shine Complex and a double dose of conditioners to keep your hair hydrated. You can buy them online or in stores.

Hey, everyone! To me, the best part of going back to school is the back to school shopping :) I have an obsession with shopping... if you saw my closet you would know what I mean! Lol. What you see in the pictures above is what Im wearing for my first day of school. The whole outfit is from Hollister. The navy blue tank top was $10, the sweater was $39.50, and the skirt was $29.50.

Just because im so nice... :)
Note: I'm not sure why they don't have the exact cardigan in navy blue online... but heres an alternative!

Product Review #2

My natural hair is wavy with some curls in it, and i've never worn it natural until I discovered this product. I always used to straighten my hair, everyday. Sometimes I would even straighten it twice because it would become wavy halfway through the day. (I use the Amika hot pink hair straightener) I love how my natural hair looks, but it gets sooo frizzy so fast. I picked this product up at CVS a few months ago, used it once, and decided I didn't like the way it made my hair feel. (I realized I used too much, so just use about a dime size to scrunch your hair) I recently started using it again on my natural hair and I'm looooving it. I get out of the shower, wrap my hair up in a towel for about two minutes, then i scrunch my hair with this product. It keeps my hair from looking frizzy all day long and dries my hair into loose waves. You can get this product at any drugstore and I believe its around $7.00 but I'm not positive. If your natural hair is like mine this product will make such a difference! I've been using this product for about two months now and I still didn't hit the bottom of the container! It's a really easy hairstyle to do if your in a rush and don't have time to straighten or curl your hair :)

Product rave, anyone?

Urban Decay Naked Palette

I can't begin to describe how much I love this palette! I never owned an Urban Decay palette before, just a few of their single shadows. I first saw this palette being reviewed by one of my favorite Youtube beauty gurus, Julieg713. Video here: The look she did was sooo gorgeous, and the colors of the palette were amazingly pigmented as well. The next day I ran out to Sephora and got my own. It cost $44 dollars and came with a mini primer potion, and a double sided 24/7 Glide On pencil in the colors Zero and Whisky. Most of the colors are shimmers, and only a few matte. If your a fan of matte shadows, this palette isn't probably for you considering you'd only be able to use two or three shadows out of the 12. This palette is gorgeous and worth the money. You can create so many looks with it! You can do a subtle everyday look, a really shimmery eye look, a smokey eye, and so much more. I recently went on vacation and only took this palette, and it was all the shadows I needed. Also, since all the Urban Decay single shadows are twenty dollars each, your getting 12 in this palette for $44. Although their not as big as the single shadows, your still getting a good size of the shadow, AND the 24/7 Double Sided Glide On pencil as well as the Mini Primer Potion. I definitely recommend this palette :)
