Get Ready With Me! | What I’m Doing This Summer + Life Update

Hey guys! I’m really excited to share what I’m doing this summer with you all!

June is a bit crazy for me, as I’m not going to be home pretty much at all in July. This month I am pre-filming a lot of videos… 18 to be exact. Yes, 18. I’ve got some exciting things coming your way, so keep an eye out!

I’ve been accepted into the Los Angeles Ballet Academy Summer Intensive, so in July, I’ll be gone and living in LA with family for an entire month. Because it is pretty much all day for five days a week, I obviously will not have time to film or write posts or anything like that. However, I am going to try and Vlog a whole bunch for you guys to include you in what I’m doing. I’m really excited about getting my butt kicked this summer!

As far as the blog scheduling is concerned, in June I’ll be uploading my normal Wednesday and Friday videos and posts, but in July, I’ll only be posting on Wednesdays, unless I Vlog, which will end up going up whenever.

I’m really excited to share this summer with you all! I love you guys lots, and I’ll see you guys later!

Bronze Goddess Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys!

Bronzy makeup is personally my favorite for evening events and special occasions for the summertime. I thought I’d share with you one of my go-to looks for summer!

For the base, I used my Custom Blend Foundation, however other times I will use the Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation. I also used the It Cosmetics Waterproof Concealer to brighten my under-eyes, color correct, and prime my nose. Everything breaks up on my nose, so priming prevents that. To set my face, I’m using the Motives Luminous Loose Powder and I set my under eyes with the Birch shade from the Motives Elements Color Box.

For the eyes, I’m using the Covergirl Tru-Naked Goldens Palette, but I love the Present by Scott Barnes for Motives eyeshadows for a golden-bronze look. I’ll start with the lightest shade in the palette and apply that as a base. Now I’m going to use both the Motives Luxe Creme Shadows in Gold Dust and Brown sugar, which is completely not necessary to use both. Use one or the other. I then apply the matte brown shade and apply this to the crease. Then I spritzed my brush with the Motives Ten Years Younger Setting Spray and I’m using the chocolatey-bronze shade on the outer 3/4’s of my eye. Then I take the gold shade and apply this to the inner corners of the eye. I blend this out with a flat brush to create a gradient effect.

For eyeliner, I used the Rimmel London eyeliner in Sparkling Emerald (they don’t carry it anymore, so I’ll link the Motives Kohl Liner in Green Envy) on the lower lash line to add a pop of color. I blend that out with the sponge applicator on the lower lash line. I used two different mascaras, but I’m going to tell you to use the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara because it is genuinely my most favorite mascara.

For the rest of the face, I’m using the Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette (this apparently doesn’t exist anymore, I’m so sorry guys! I suck at this… lolz… here’s the link to a bronzer, blusher, and highlighter similar to the ones I used!) and I’m using the contour, the blush, and the highlight. For the lips, I’m going to use the BareMinerals Gen Nude Liquid Lipcolors in the shade Boss.

This concludes my versatile professional/evening makeup tutorial! I hope you guys enjoy it, and if you guys recreate this look, be sure to tweet or Instagram me a photo! I love you guys so much, and I’ll see you in my next video!

I’m looking forward to bringing Life On Pointe back in September!!! You all have made it so worth it.

Some of you who watch have told me that you have seen the progress from episode one to now, and that means the world to me. I’m so thankful to my teachers for allowing me to bring you on this journey and I’m so happy that you’ve found inspiration from this series.

I love you all so very much and I cannot thank you enough.

May Favorites

Hello Beautiful People!

It’s that time again where I tell you about the things I’ve been loving for this month. Also, raise your hands in the comment section below if you’re ready for the summer!!!

I’m going to start off with foundations. The first is my Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation and I’ve been reaching for this a lot recently because I’ve been needing more of a full coverage foundation. My skin has been freaking out lately so I’m looking to cover those acne scars and spots! The other foundation is the Motives for La La Liquid Foundation. I’ve been loving the idea of cream bronzer, so I’ve been using this foundation since it’s about six shades too dark for me. It makes my bronzer look so flawless and natural and glowing and I’m obsessed.

I’ve mentioned these before and I’m going to mention them again. The Motives Luxe Creme Shadows in Gold Dust and Brown Sugar  are my life savers. I’ve been super busy recently, so if I wanted a bit of color on the eyes, I throw on these shadows, blend it out with a synthetic flat brush or a fluffy crease brush, throw on some mascara and I’m good to go. They’re so quick and easy to use.

New to my collection is the Motives Pressed Bronzer in Miami Glow. Miami Glow is definitely a bit too light and I will not be able to use this in the summertime as I get really dark during the summer months. However, it is a beautiful bronzer with a very slight shimmer, adding the perfect amount of glow to your face. If you have fair skin, you will be in love with this bronzer.

There are two nail polishes that I’ve been using for the last few months and I don’t know why it is taking me so long to tell you guys about them. They are the Motives Nail Laquers in the shades Vintage and Fairy Tale. The thing I love about the Motives Nail Laquers is the fact that they dry evenly very quickly. They are incredibly opaque and I only use one coat and I can run out the door in about 7 minutes. I particularly love these shades because they are neutral and delicate, just the way I like my nails.

As far as hair is concerned, I’ve been loving styling my hair in big voluminous beach waves, and I’ve been using the Batiste Dry Shampoo  to add volume and texture. I don’t wash my hair too often either, and it does a great job soaking up the oils in my hair. I mainly spray the ends of my hair rather than my actual head due to the fact that it does leave a white cast, but if you’re willing to take the time to rub it out, I’d recommend this to you.

The fragrance I’ve been using non-stop is the Ralph Lauren Romance Refreshing Body Mist . I used to not like this, but this year I’ve started liking much more deep, fresh, floral scents. Recently I’ve been spraying this all over and it is long lasting and smells incredible.

That’s it for my monthly favorites! I hope you’ve enjoyed my May Favorites. Let me know some of your favorites down below in the comment section! I love you guys!

I Failed?! (Thank You)

You guys know that back in March, I took my Advanced II exam. If you watched that Vlog, you’ll know that I had some pointe shoe drama. Well, my exam results came in about a couple weeks ago, and I failed the exam.

STANDARD NOT ATTAINED

My teacher texted me that morning and told me the news. To be honest, I’d already prepared myself as soon as I left the exam room for the possibility that I would fail. Of course, I also was hoping that the examiner would forgive the technical difficulty, but that was not the case. I wasn’t at all surprised, but I did feel a bit irritated. Not with the examiner, but with the situation.

The scoring of the exam works like this: if you fail one section, you fail the whole exam. You can score as high as 10/10 points. This was my score chart:

Technique 1: Barre   9/10

Technique 2: Port De Bras, Center Practice, Pirouettes:    8/10

Technique 3: Adage   7/10

Technique 4: Allegro 1, 2, 3 & 4   8/10

Technique 5: Pointe Barre, Enchainment 1 & 2     4/10

Technique 6: Pointe    3/10 (Failed)

Music:    9/10

Performance:    9/10

Variation Technique:    4/10

Variation Performance:    9/10

Total Score: 70% (Standard Not Attained)

Had I not failed my pointe technique score, I would’ve passed with a distinction. I was talking to my best friend about this and he asked me (in my opinion) if it was worst to fail or pass with a merit. I honestly feel like failing was better than passing with a merit, and I answered that with confidence.

I am so proud of myself. I have never seen four 9/10 scores in one exam before, and my score of 8/10 for Allegro 1, 2, & 3 is the highest jumping score I’ve ever had. Though the paper says that I did not meet the standards of passing, I don’t see it as failing. I see it as overcoming hurdles I didn’t think I could overcome.

The next step is to retake the exam next year. I’m excited to reach my goal of getting distinction and moving on to Solo Seal!

And to those of you who read my Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat post on this, thank you so very much for the messages of encouragement and inspiring posts you sent to me. Thank you for your support, your love, and for your kind words. I took each and every message to heart and was overwhelmed by you. I’m so glad that you guys have found inspiration in my failures!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode 22

Ugh… guys!!!

I’m kind of irritated that I don’t have my exam results in yet!!! I mean, how long can you make a dancer wait?!

In all seriousness, this week was pretty dang mellow. I went to my normal Monday classes and had a private (finally) with Mr. Pegler. My local teacher and her family ended up getting the flu so I decided to stay home. I did some serious cardio (thanks to my aunt for giving me some tips!) and some barre work in my room.

But seriously… I’m still waiting on my exam results… and I’m getting slightly impatient. *sighs*

I love you guys so much, and I’ll see you on Wednesday!

What I Eat In A Day + Vlog!

Hey guys!

I haven’t Vlogged in a while and I really missed doing it! So on Saturday, I filmed my chill day and combined it with a what I eat in a day video as well!

BREAKFAST

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day if I’m being completely honest. I never skip breakfast. This day, I made some scrambled eggs with cheese, two pieces of turkey bacon, and a piece of sourdough toast. Another thing I love doing is putting avocado on toast and putting the eggs on top and it is incredibly filling and a balanced meal. I had a cup of coffee with my meal because (very sadly) I am addicted to it and love coffee so much.

LUNCH

To be honest, I probably skip lunch a lot more than I should. Sometimes I actually forget about lunch and don’t eat. However, when I do eat lunch, I usually go for the leftovers from the night before. This lunch was Teriyaki Chicken (link to recipe here!) and a bowl of mango and strawberries. At this time of day, I’m not usually that hungry, so this was a pretty small meal and I loved it.

DINNER

This night, my family, a family friend and I all went out to dinner. I ended up getting a caesar salad, a ribeye steak and a baked potato. Let me just tell you, it was incredible. On a normal night, I’ll cook something meant to last two days. Some of my favorite recipes are Chicken Burrito Bowls, Chili, and Lasagna paired with a vegetable.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I really enjoyed Vlogging and hopefully I’ll be doing it more often! I love you guys so much!
