The Kylie Jenner Look

Hi guys
So I stared at this young lady for far too long in this picture:

and I just had to recreate her face, despite my personal beliefs about the Kardashian Kult. 

Hope you like it, it's easy and pretty and will make you get hella instagram likes, so long as your older sister makes a sex tape!

Go To Everyday Face

Presenting: A Tutorial for My Everyday Face

This is it, the average Hannah face; the mask I wear when I know that I have to impress some people, but I don't care that much about them to go above and beyond. Or I am far too lazy.
It takes me on average 10-15 minutes to achieve.

How to Fool Tattoo Haters

God Bless America, Hannah is posting about those awful tattoos again.
Sorry bout it. *snaps finger*

This is a post of a different, much less ranty nature.

And remember,

This is extremely true. It is absurd. And like I said before, a body modification does not and should not be thought to correlate whatsoever to the soul within the body. 

And even though many of you out there are not judgmental, and not ridiculously prejudiced, despite your own personal convictions and whatnot with tattoos, there are still some opportunities that might be lost to a tattooed person.

So I am here to show you how to trick those types of nonsensical people into thinking you are just like them, tattoo less and nonsensical. 

(I am not referring to people who do not have tats of their own, rather the people who are so opposed to them they treat people differently.)


Side note: It looks like I am using a lot of products here, but to break it down for you, all you need is 
-a red lipstick 
-three concealers
all of which can be purchased for a very minimal amount at the drugstore. You just need the three different concealers (a cool toned, neutral toned, and warm toned) to better blend in the skin. The idea is to create a bruise with the red lipstick, so as to match everything out, and then proceed as best one can to effectively conceal such a large and dark spot.

Begin with your tattoo. Obviously. Make sure the skin is clean and dry.

Put some red lipstick on and around the tattooed skin. This is going to act a base that will make everything the same undertone. This is even more important for those of you with colored tattoos. For black and white, it is not completely necessary, but I chose to do so for the sake of the tutorial. 
Let the lipstick dry for 5-10 minutes. Chances are, it is not going to dry completely, so don't waste your time. You just need to give it room to set.

Carefully, in PATTING MOTIONS, place a cool undertone concealer on top of the red. 
This is going to counteract the redness. You could also use a green concealer, but I did not have one with me. 
This is basically like covering up a bruise. 

Again, blend it out in patting motions. You will apply more layers, so don't worry about getting everything covered.

Apply a second layer, and pat it out the same.

Put on a more neutral concealer. Pat it away as usual. The neutral is going to allow the pink from the previous concealer to set more naturally into your skin color.

Last layer! Apply a warm toned concealer, or one that matches as close as possible to your true skin color. Pat this out, and make sure to cover up all the edges, blending outwards.

Set it with translucent powder, or one that matches your skin. It doesn't really matter which color, just that you set the liquid products well so that they don't transfer onto anything or slide around.


The Questions Everyone Asks

These are just some of the random questions that I get asked a lot. I figured one video would be easier than the random messages and texts I have been using to reply.


If you have more questions, just comment them. I like answering <3

once again, I apologize for the dog. I shut her up later. Xo

The Only Reason I Don't Look Like Pizza

Dear everyone who has ever experienced acne,

and no, I am not referring to the individuals who get one pink dot on the bottom side of their chin and call it a breakout, you can leave.

This is for those of us who have had the days where we weigh the pros and cons of actually venturing outside into the world versus playing hermit for a week for bonding time with your zits.

Because, the best kind of cover up is a dark room with no one else in it.

I come with tidings of great joy: there is actually a product that can and will help your skin, quickly, effectively, and with a variety of organic ingredients that you can eat if you want to.

I am not the biggest fan of Lush products, because I find them to be wildly overpriced and annoyingly named. However, the Mask of Magnaminty (note the annoying play on words name) - is worth a trip into the store, no matter how eager to talk your ear off the employees seem.

It is extremely worth the money; I bought the bigger one because I knew that I liked it, and I am not even half way through even though it has been months.

Put it on your face. Back. Chest. Whatever. Thin layers. Thanks bye.

2-3 times a week, or only once if you prefer.

Feels fresh on the face
Dries out acne without overly drying the skin
Slightly exfoliates with the beads in it
Reduces blemishes noticeably
Makes you feel like the hulk or green lantern, whichever you want

Put it on every night
Pick your face even though you use the mask
Eat it

I remove my makeup and cleanse my face as I normally would, then apply the green magic.
I usually use the mask twice a week, at night, when I am bored and have time to sit and binge watch Orange is the New Black. The time says 10 - 15 minutes, but I honestly just keep it on for however long I want. This is one of the few masks that I have used that does not over dry your face with extensive time.
If I have one or two spots on my face, I will put this on just the blemishes overnight and wake up much happier than I would have without using it.
After getting my hands wet, I rinse it off in circular motions to enable the exfoliating properties. Works wonders.
After that, I continue with my skin routine as I normally would - serum, treatment, moisturizer, retainer.
Haha, retainer.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some days, as I am only human, I get bored and pick at my skin. There can literally be NOTHING on my face, but I clearly have to fix what is not broken. Any large pore is clearly a blemish, even though its not, and I attempt to get it.
The moral of the story is, if you mess up sometimes and occasionally pick at your skin, this is an absolutely great product to use right after, because it will really really prevent infection and inflammation. But this will only work if you are not over damaging your face with those nasty fingers. Picking at your skin is literally the worst thing you can do for acne. DONT.

So, yeah! I know that this is an extremely publicized product, but it is something I truly recommend. If you don't believe me, go into your nearest Lush and ask for a sample from the ever so loyal employees.
If not, BUY IT HERE and stop hiding your pretty faces.

this is me looking particularly confused as to why you haven't purchased it yet.

Hannah Attempts Girly


I am not good at girly anything...
push up bras: no
flirting: no
eating little amounts: no

However, I am what some call skilled in the art of the dramatic makeup look... I thought that I would push all of my Tom Boy boundaries aside and try to be girly as well.

Although it was terrifying to look girly and wear pink on my eyelids, I felt like little cherubs were flying on rainbows behind me all day and it was quite lovely. So if you want to feel stereotypically feminine for one day, hop on the bandwagon with me.

This is what I came up with:

E0C1 Foundation mixed with Loreal True Match Lumi
MAC Prolongwear Concealer NW20
Ben Nye Banana Powder mixed with MAC Shaping Powder "Emphasize"
Milani Brow Shaping Wax
MakeUp Forever Aqua Brow Gel
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Too Faced Blush "Whose Your Poppy"
Sephora baked highlighter

MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
MAC Shaping Powder in Emphasize
Make Up Geek "Purely Naked"
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Too Faced Eyeshadow "So Cal"
Too Faced Blush "Whose Your Poppy"
Urban Decay "Half Baked"
NYX Nude Liner
NYX Gold Sparkle Liner
NYC Liquid Liner
Ardell Demi Whispies Lashes
Loreal Fiber Lashes Mascara in BROWN

MAC Lipliner in "Hip n Hoppy"
MAC Creme Cup lipstick
Maybelline Elixer "Nude Illusion"
