My Everyday Eye Makeup+Tutorial

Hey everyone, so I decided to show you guys what my everyday eye makeup looks like. I'm sorry for the bad quality of the photo, but it's pretty much just that simple. I have decided I will try to post on here more frequently, but I still don't have a ton of time to post. :(

Here is how you can achieve this look. 
A nude champagne eyeshadow across the entire lid.  (I have many, I can't remember what I used.)
A dark brown eyeshadow on outer third, then blended well. (Any kind.)
A gold color in the middle of your lid. I'm using one from a un-named palette I have, but I think Half Baked from Urban Decay would work well.
Brown eyeliner. I prefer liquid, but if you're good with pencil eyeliner then go right ahead!(Any brand.)
Curl your eyelashes. (Just use whatever eyelash curler you have.)
Apply your favorite mascara. I used two coats of lengthening mascara.
Line your waterline with any dark black eyeliner.
Conceal your under eye circles with any concealer, I used Elf.
Highlight on your brown bone with any with eyeshadow or eyeliner. I used an eyeliner by Essence, but you can't really see my brow so.....
Apply the same white color to your inner corner.

And voila! You're done. :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and let me know if you want more like this! Thank you!

I Won A Giveaway!

Hey everyone!

Today I decided to a post on what I won from Betzy! I won a ton of cool stuff, so I thought I would share with you what I won. :)

I just opened the box a day (two?) ago, so I haven't gotten to use everything yet, but I will do a mini review on what I have had to chance to use so far. Thanks again for everything Betzy! :)

1. Listerine Cool Mint mouthwash. This is very a very minty mouthwash, but it really does leave my mouth feeling clean and fresh, so I do recommend it! As long as you like mint! ;)

2. Aveeno Baby lotion. As you all know, I'm a teenager, and I don't have a child or baby or anything, so I can't use this. But, one of my aunts is expecting, so I may give this to her.

3. Aveeno Baby shampoo. I've heard that baby shampoo works well for cleaning makeup brushes, but I honestly use makeup brushes very often, so I may give this to my aunt as well.

4. Aveeno shampoo. I have a full bottle of shampoo that I just placed in my shower a couple weeks ago, and I don't want to have two in there at a time, that doesn't make much sense. So, I'll probably save this for when I run out.

5. Aveeno conditioner. Again, my conditioner is nearly full, so I can't use this for at least a month, probably more. :)

6. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion. This lotion is good, it's very creamy. It reminds me a lot of a body butter, except for that you can pump it. It's fragrance free, which is whatever. I do like my fragrances, but I can do with out them. At least this way I can use my own perfume.

7. Aveeno SPF Moisturizer. I've used this every morning since I opened it. I love it. I wash my face, and then apply this moisturizer before my makeup. It makes my makeup go on so much smoother, and leaves my face feeling smooth all day. Before I got this, I would just use a normal Bath and Body Works lotion or whatever I had laying around, but those felt so thick and gloppy. I like this because you can put it on thin, and it will keep the moisturize for the whole day. I highly recommend this, especially for winter months. ADDED PLUS: It smells good, it's not very strongly scented and I don't know what the scent is, but it smells good. :)

8. Lubriderm lotion. I've haven't gotten to use this yet because I've been using all my seasonal Bath and Body Works lotions and my new Aveeno lotion, but next I'll be sure to try this one out!

9. Band Aids. Luckily I haven't injured myself since I got this package, so luckily I haven't needed a Band Aid! But I did put some of them in the bathroom, some in my purse, some in my bag that I take to the gym with me, when I go....and places like that.

Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway Betzy! And for all my readers, it does pay to enter giveaways! I'm always like, I'm not going to win, so why should I enter? But guess what? I did win one. :)

Bad News and Good News

Hey guys!

I know I've abandoned this blog lately. Sorry! I just wanted to let you guys know that my posting on here is going to be VERY un often and I will mainly use this account to just follow my favorite blogs and not post on this blog very much. Also my YouTube channel (silversparklebeauty) will NOT have videos posted on it anymore. It takes up too much of my time to try and post videos, I am a teenage girl so I do have homework and sports practice and all that stuff. I may return over the summer, but for now my posting on this blog is going to be rare and my YouTube channel for all purposes will be deleted. Also the giveaway page on this blog is going to be deleted because it is to hard to keep up with. Sorry for all this bad news, but I do have one exciting thing to tell you guys! Beauty Scraps is hosting an AWESOME nail polish giveaway and I would love to share it all with you! Here is the link, hurry though it ends soon!

And this my friends, is what you could win! Good luck to all who enter!
