September Favorites

I FIND BEAUTY IN THINGS THAT ARE ODD AND IMPERFECT- THEY ARE MUCH MORE INTERESTING.

-MARC JACOBS

Hello everyone! As happy as I am that October is on the way, I am hanging on tight and screaming, “How is this year going by so fast?!” It’s insane how there is only three more months in 2017. Anyways, I’m going to kick off my favorites by starting off with the weather. Finally, we’ve gotten out of the 100’s and 90’s and we’re in the 80’s and 70’s! Okay, I know this is literally the lamest favorite ever, but still, thank God the unbearable heat is over.

The next favorite I have are three of the Motives Pressed Shadows. One of them is one I’ve mentioned before, but I wanted to mention it again. The first is Bedroom Eyes, which is a subtle purple taupe with gold reflects and is perfect for a natural eye makeup look or a smokey intense look. The next two shades are no longer available, but I will link a similar one to their name. One is Catwalk (similar one: Tripped Out) which is a deep olive green with gold reflect and perfect for autumnal looks and really makes brown eyes pop. The last one is Rapture (similar one: Lit) which is a bright copper with orange tons, again, perfect for autumnal looks and makes any eye color stand out.

I was giving someone a make over at the beginning of the month and gave her a choice of palettes I could use on her. She chose the Motives I Do Palette.  Once I was finished with the look on her I was obsessed and wondered why I hadn’t picked up this palette recently. I’ve been using it on a regular basis now and am back in love with it. It contains 3 matte eyeshadows, 2 shimmer shadows, a highlight, a bronzer/contour shade, a blush, and a mini kohl liner. It is definitely worth every penny that was spent on it.

I am now going to mention these brushes from Mikasa Beauty. I never mention brushes, but I am in absolute love with these brushes. They are excellent quality and the brush hairs are so soft. I have the F100 which is their powder brush, the F300 which is their foundation brush, the F120 which is their tapered contour brush (I use it to highlight the face), the E320 which is their tapered blending brush, and the E230, which is their Eye Shader Brush.

I also have their lemon drop, which is their version of a beauty sponge and I really life it as well! It’s not too firm or hard, and when you dampen it, it is so soft and bouncy. My Mom bought their full set and loves them and I love all of those as well. I bought the Mikasa 5 Piece Complexion Brush Set  which is $65 with a value of $77.

Also from Mikasa Beauty is their CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in #110 Dark Lava. It is the most perfect autumnal shade for the nails and is such a deep and rich berry shade. I saw it when I was looking through their nail polishes and I knew that I had to get this one. I love it so much and it goes with everything.

 

Lastly for my favorites are these ear cuffs that I actually made for myself. I made two ear cuffs in gold and I also took apart a really heavy ear cuff I never wore and made a small one to wear, and I love them! I’ve been wearing these ear cuffs every single day since I made them in the beginning of the month. They add a little bit of edge without being too editorial. They’re so perfect and I just love them.

Alrighty guys, that’s it for this month’s favorites! I hope you all had the best September ever and I can’t wait for October!!! I love you all!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode Four | Season 2

Hey guys!

This week was my first week working with a new teacher privately. It was so good! I learned a lot, my mind was almost refreshed a bit, and I gained muscles I didn’t even know I had. It was all around a really good day!

I also learned a brand new possible variation for YAGP!!! I’m actually really excited and I really did fell in love with the variation. Updates on that coming soon.

Thank you so much for watching! Love you all!

Every Day Makeup Routine

ELEGANCE IS THE ONLY BEAUTY THAT NEVER FADES.

-Audrey Hepburn 

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you the makeup tutorial I’ve been doing since July. It’s a glowing, natural look that you could wear for work or school. I like that it gives your skin that extra boost, but doesn’t look overpowered by the makeup. Let’s get started!

FACE

This is a no-foundation makeup look, so we’re going straight in with concealer. I’m using my custom blend concealer, but you can use any concealer you know and love. I’m going to apply the concealer to any redness, dark circles, or spots that I have going on. For under my eyes I used the Motives Liquid Long-Wear Concealer, which is also one of my favorites for blemishes.

Because I want a natural, all-over bronzy look, I’m using the Motives for LaLa Antony Liquid Foundation in golden as my cream bronzer. Motives also has a Shimmer Stick in the shade Island Glow, which will probably be a lot easier to use for your cream bronzer.

For cream highlight, I’m mixing two of Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors in both Pearl and Moonstone. I love the glow of these liquid highlights and it brings a gorgeous glow to the skin.

For powder, I’m using my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in the shade Radiant Light, and I’m going to set my t-zone and my under eye area. We will set the cream bronzer with the shade Dim Light and the cream highlight with the shade Incandescent Light and Becca’s pressed highlight in the shade Moonstone on my cheekbones as well. For blush, I used the Tarte blush in Partyyy.

EYES & BROWS

For brows, I’m using my favorite combination of the BareMinerals Brow Powder and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel as usual. However, most days when I wear this look, I’ll just set my brows with the brow gel and not put any powder in them.

Because I was filming other videos the day I filmed this, I did my eye makeup, which I’ll leave the shades I used in the next line. Usually, I’ll just do a bone color all over from lid to brow bone and I’ll apply my Motives Fiber Lush Mascara. To be honest though, sometimes I’m lazy and I don’t even do mascara.

For my eye makeup, I used Motives Pressed Shadow in Bedroom Eyes all over the lid, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in the shade Dim Light in my crease, and the Motives Kohl Liner in Coffee. 

LIPS

For lips, you can put on some chapped stick or lip gloss, but I decided to use my favorite lipstick of all time on my lips. It’s the Motives Moisture Rich Lipstick in the shade Incognito, and as the name suggests, it is a rich color that adds moisture to your lips.

That’s it for this makeup tutorial! I hope you guys enjoyed it, and I’ll see you guys next time!

All My Love,

xx Sung

LIFE ON POINTE | Season 2 | Episode Three

Hey guys! This week was my first week back in full force! Monday I had an amazing class and partnered up with one of my favorites for pas de deux. I did wake up the next morning with bruises on my ribs, back, and a couple on my thighs from doing crazy lifts. I had my first private coaching session with Mr. Pegler of the new 2017-2018 season, and I was extremely sore after. I went straight to my next class with Ms. Jana and moving helped me feel less sore, but the next day, I could feel the lactic acid just sitting on my muscles. It was so painful, I had to take an ice bath to numb the pain. Of course, I made sure I took proper care of myself.

Thursday wasn’t my best day. With all the soreness and a bit of a stressful day, my head wasn’t exactly in the best headspace and my body just didn’t want to do anything. I did better than what I’d felt that day, if that makes any sense.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this episode! I love you guys and I’ll see you on Wednesday!

LIFE ON POINTE | Episode 2 | Season 2

Hey guys! As you guys know, there was no Life On Pointe episode last week due to my being sick for two weeks, and also, Labor Day. For not dancing for two weeks, I feel like I did pretty well this week. However on Thursday, I told my teacher that I didn’t remember the last time pointe shoes felt that painful. It was difficult, but I did it. Sometimes you gotta just push through it!

My Tips For Stress Relief

SELF LOVE IS GIVING THE WORLD THE BEST OF YOU, NOT THE REST OF YOU.

-Katie Reed

Happy September everyone! I cannot express to you how much joy I have knowing that it is September. I absolutely love that we are so near Autumn. Plus, I could really do with some cooler weather right about now. Anyways, today I am going to be bringing you my tips for stress relief. I feel like as the season is changing and we have all started school and summer is basically over, our lives suddenly become really stressful, but it doesn’t have to be!

.1.

Meditation is such a great way to relieve stress. I do this when I feel totally down and depressed and overwhelmed with everything I have to do. You don’t need to take an hour, all you need is five or ten minutes. On your break at lunch, just take five or ten minutes to pop in your headphones and relax your mind. Don’t think about everything that you have to do or whatever is going on, just focus on your breathing. I find this really helps me reset my mind, helping me realize that my problem or my to-do list is not bigger than me.

.2.

Exercise may sound totally ridiculous, but actually, exercise is an amazing way to relieve stress and release negative emotions. I don’t know what it is about exercise, but it helps totally clear my mind. Whether I decide to do a 20 minute cardio workout or a 45 minute run or ever a nice walk around the block, I find that when I exercise when I’m feeling stressed and I need a break, it causes me to somehow relax and feel really good about myself. I understand that most people can’t drop whatever they’re doing to go exercise, but if you have time before work or after your day is done, try and get in some exercise. I think too it gives me a sense of accomplishment after I’ve completed a really good workout, so even if I didn’t complete everything on my to-do list, I still got in a great workout.

.3.

After a long day, it’s always a good idea to give yourself a good Pamper Session, especially after you’ve been on your feet all day and you’ve been going going going. I don’t do a pamper session every night, but I do one at least twice a week. Do you have a face mask you’ve been saving for a special occasion? Pull it out! Grab the body butter you don’t ever use, put some bubbles in your bath, light some candles and give yourself some ambient lighting.

Having a good spa night is an excellent way to relax, and there are so many different playlists on Spotify for calming and/or spa music. You can even turn on a good TV show or a movie. Read a book you haven’t gotten around to reading yet. A pamper session is one of those times to fully recharge and enjoy yourself. It’s my personal favorite way to unwind and destress.

.4.

Organizing, Scheduling, and Making Lists is one of the best ways to be proactive at relieving stress. If I am not organized or scheduled or if I’m not in a good routine, I am all over the place, overwhelmed, depressed, and stressed, which is the reason I have gray hairs and fine lines under my eyes. Creating a schedule for yourself will, yes, take a bit of time, but it is so worth it.

I have scheduled my entire day, from the time I wake up at 5:30 a.m. to the time I go to bed between 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. I’ve scheduled all the times I exercise, do housework, school, work, dance, and most importantly, recharge time. It has made me see that I do have a lot of time on my hands and if I follow the schedule to the best of my ability, it keeps me totally stress free.

Making Lists is also a must for me if I’m going to get stuff done. Apps that I would recommend for scheduling and making lists is Reminders, Notes, and Google Calendar. It may take time that you don’t want to spend creating a schedule and planning things out, but I promise it is totally worth it.

.5.

Letting It Out is probably one of the best ways to relieve stress. Don’t keep it in. I’ve found that if I suppress the emotion of feeling overwhelmed and stressed, I’m cranky, I start to panic, and I get incredibly anxious. So you can vent to a willing friend, or you can journal it. Keep a notebook in your bag with a pen ready to write when you can. Write what you want, and don’t think about what you’re writing. Just write. I like to “throw up on a page” and vent to the pages of my journal. Also, don’t forget to record the amazing memories you might have. I’ve been writing in journals for over eleven years now and one of my favorite things is looking back to relive memories, encourage myself, see how a particular problem or conflict resolved, and to see how far I’ve come.

.6.

Read A Book! Now, I know not everyone is a bookworm like I am, but if you have a spare ten or fifteen minutes, pull out a book and read. I love how you can completely escape your problems and be part of a story that you love, and it’s one of my favorite places to be in. Also, if you don’t have time to read a book, listen to an audiobook while you’re cleaning the house or paying bills or whatever. It makes it so much more enjoyable.

.7.

Lastly I love pulling out a really intricate Coloring Book  (or “adult” coloring book) with my fine point markers and perfectly color coordinated pencils and color a page. This was actually suggested by my mentor to help relieve my stress and remember to enjoy the little things, and I’m telling you I can lose literally four to five hours of time just coloring, it’s so meditative and therapeutic. So I set a timer for about fifteen to twenty minutes (if I have it) and color until the timer goes off. I think drawing is a great way as well, but I suck at drawing, so I prefer coloring.

. . .

Alright guys, that is it for this very long blogpost! I hope you guys enjoyed it. If you guys are struggling with stress and anxiety, just know that you are not alone. I feel like we all deal with a bit of it, some more so than others. Also, don’t forget to enjoy the little things life brings, and hold onto those moments and cherish them. Be responsible, but don’t take life to seriously. Remember not to live too far in the future, and enjoy the now. It doesn’t last forever.

All my love!

August Favorites | 2017

You Go Girl.

Hello everyone and welcome back to my monthly favorites! For some reason, I have a lot of products this month to get through, so let’s start before this intro gets a bit too long!

The first products are makeup products, and I’m going to try and get through the bullet points and reasons why I love them. The first thing I will talk about is my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Paaarty. Yes, it’s spelled like that. It is a beautiful nude blush and goes with every makeup look, from natural every day to smokey nighttime looks. For someone who isn’t super into blushes, I have been wearing this blush every day that I’ve been wearing makeup.

The second product I will talk about is the Becca Glow On The Go kit in Opal, and I love both of these products. I wore them both nonstop throughout August. It has a rosy undertone and look stunning on the eyes, cheekbones, and lips. It gives you such a lit from within glow and I live for it.

The next products are all lip products I’ve been loving, and that would be the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Birthday Suit, which is the most perfect nude I’ve ever worn and looks so perfect and natural, and is also one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks I’ve tried.

The second lip product is the Motives All Day Stay Liquid Mattes in Guava and for someone who doesn’t normally gravitate towards baby pink, I really like this shade and wear it pretty often. Again, it’s beautiful and comfortable to wear, is long lasting, and doesn’t flake off my lips.

The last one is a lipgloss, the Motives for LaLa Mineral Lip Shine in Celeb. On the website, it looks gritty and glittery, but in person, it’s not at all. It’s a lightly pigmented gloss and feels moisturizing on the lips. If you’re in the market for a new gloss, I highly recommend checking out this one.

Next up is brow products, and it was pointed out to me that despite the fact I mention these brow products basically every single makeup tutorial I ever do, I’ve never put them in a favorites video. Now, I am! I absolutely love my beloved BareMinerals Brow Powder. It lasts forever, #1, and #2, it’s a color that suits my brows perfectly; not too ashy, not too warm. And the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel, oh my goodness, is amazing. Jaclyn Hill said it best: it’s gorilla glue for your brows.

Moving on to Fashion pieces I’ve really been loving, I have been wearing this gold bracelet every day since I got back from summer intensive and I just love it. My dad got it for me and for whatever reason I’ve really been loving it recently. Also, gold jewelry in general as well, but in particular, my bracelet.

Shoes I’ve been loving are these sandals from Aldo which I got for my birthday, and they are so versatile, so timeless, and they go with everything, from a short summer dress to a business appropriate outfit. They’re clean, sleek, and timeless and I have been wearing pretty much anytime I have to leave my house.

The next two items are fashion pieces which were given to me by a lovely woman I go to church with, so thank you! This dress I’ve been wearing all throughout the summer, and I just had to put it into a favorites because it really is one of my summer staple pieces this year. Also, this white lace top is stunning. I can wear it with a pair of trousers, jeans, or a skirt and it looks lovely no matter how you wear it. I really love this piece and I have a feeling I’ll be wearing it quite a bit in the future.

That’s it for my August faves! I know this was a bit of a long one, but I hope you enjoyed it anyway! I love you all, and I’ll see you all soon!

xoxo
