Mermain Halloween Tutorials (hair & makeup)

Mermaid Tutorial 


Products used -
elf Eyelid Primer
Giselle Cosmetic eyeshadows in Las Vegas (I talk about these all the time, check out the post on them)
MAC Fix+
elf Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Rimmel Lash Accelerator
MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder

What to know the perfect mermaid nail colors?!
These are my two personal favorites
Sinful & O.P.I
I wanted to show an affordable color as well as a more "designer" expensive color. I love how Sinful Colors are only $1.99 while O.P.I can be $8.00 and up (depending on where you buy) Both are super pretty colors and really capture what I think of when I think of mermaids.
O.P.I. - Significant Other Color
Sinful Colors - Gorgeous

I have both on my nails and on the middle finger I am actually wearing an O.P.I. glow in the dark polish that I did not know was glow in the dark till a few days later, I thought it was just a pretty sea foam green color

Huge Collective Haul


As I said in the video there was actually a few things I forgot to show so I figured instead of just doing another haul I put take a picture and list them here.

d:fi beach bum - Ulta $11.99
Nourish Follicle Stimulator - skinenergizer.com $18.95
Revlon Frost & Glow - Wal-Mart (I don't remember the price)

Without totally boring you I figured I should just quickly talk about each product.  
- The beach bum spray is a texturizing spray and I used it in my hair in my "Back-to-School 2011 - Study Tips & More" which you can check out by clicking here.  Overall it is a nice spray, a little drying but it adds a nice "beachy" texture and wave to your hair.
- The Follicle Stimulator is a repurchase, I first showed it in a video months ago and you can watch that by clicking here and I also showed it in one of my favorites and I can not remember which one now, sorry! But I think it is great to speed up your hair growth just as long as you use it constantly.
- I have been talking about wanting to go blonde for a while now and I finally did it! I am so pleased with my hair color and I used the Revlon Frost & Glow and I could not be happier with the results.  I was watching MakeupbyMel's video and she said she used this brand and I tweeted her asking if that was how she got her hair that blonde and she tweeted me back saying yes so I knew I had to pick it up!  I just did it in my hair last night and posted a video, watch that here :P , talking about it on my vlog channel, honeyflower3onthego.  I will do a full video on my beauty channel so keep an eye out for that.
- I used a few different kinds of blonde shampoos and this is another great one it gradually lightens your hair.  I know I just was talking about how much I love the shimmer lights one but I will be using both they just do different things and I plan on doing a video all about blonde shampoos and which ones are best for what.
- I can not remember if I showed this mascara is a video saying I bought it so i figured I would just throw it in this video.  This is the only makeup item I have bought in a LONG time, I am really happy with my makeup collection and do not plan on buying anything new for quite sometime.  I want to use what I have and I have quite a lot.  I only plan on buying foundation because I always need that and currently I am using Isa's foundation I do not have one of my own.

Shopping List

I love to shop but honestly I do not shop that much and I usually only buy things when I really really need or want it.  I wanted to make a shopping list of realistic items I want to buy in the near future, these products are not anything huge but just little things I really like.


My favorite color and the reason I NEED this is because of "Nude Beach" hahaha weird name but beautiful color.  However, I do not need any more eye shadows!! I have more then I could ever use so I will be waiting on this palette.  


I need a new set because I have had my pair since November 2010!! I can not believe they have lasted this long but I did have to cut them 2 times and they are pretty short now :\ I just really want a new set but since I do not know what I want to do with my hair color I almost do not want to invest in a super expensive pair.  I think I might get an inexpensive pair from Sally Beauty Supply before I order a set from HeadKandy, which is my dream hair extensions.  The only downside to the pair from Sally's is that you have to sew on your own clips but I think this set will match my hair and I do not have to dye them like the pair I have now.

Toms - $54.00

I want a few new pairs! I love the cheetah ones and I just saw them as soon as I went on the web site to find the link to the glitter ones.  Toms are so comfortable and stylish and I still think it is cool that they donate a pair to child.  It sounds dumb but I alway love them I see people wearing them haha.


Sam Edelman.... my FAV (other than toms haha) shoe designer.  His shoes are amazing and beautiful and unique and awesome.  Isa wanted to buy me Tory Burch flats for my birthday because I have always wanted those but she said if I wanted she would get me these for my birthday if I want them instead.


I thought my list was way way longer but I might make a part 2 because I do not know what else I wanted haha, maybe it is a good thing ;)

Giselle Cosmetics


I just mentioned these 8 in 1 eye shadows from Giselle Cosmetics in my July Favorites* however, they were sent to me back in the middle of May 2011 from a representative of Sun Lab who I was working with for a few weeks at the time.  She sent me these eyeshadows and did not even ask for me to do a video on them, she just wanted me to try them out and she knew I would like them.  Which I do, I actually love these sets and I want them all!! I was sent two sets, Terra Bella and Las Vegas (I was allowed to pick which ones I wanted and those were my two favorite)


There are 12 sets in total on the website and each cost only $14.97.  Honestly they are well worth it and for me that is not a lot, I also do not think many people would think that is a lot either.  You get 8 super pigmented eyeshadows, and they is a generous amount of product in each color.


My one complaint is the pictures on the web site do not match the actual products.  The Las Vegas set is super bright and fun, while on the web site the colors do not look like that at all.

 Las Vegas online pictures
Las Vegas actual swatches 

 Terra Bella online picture
Terra Bella actual swatches 

Terra Bella is closer to the online swatches then Las vegas was.

I have been now using them since I recieved them and I adore them and plan on doing some tutorials in the up coming weeks using them.  I think I did not do a video sooner because if you check out my channel you see that other then my two new make up tutorials I have not done one in months.  But now I have a good set up and HD camera so I love to record tutorials.

Project Empty Bottle IV

I really thought I was going to finish more than I did! I mean I did use a lot but I was expecting a list of about 20 things.  My total from last week was 2.5, so anything more than that is good, and you check out all my prior weeks, I II and III.  I have been sticking with this and I am proud of myself for not going slipping up and buying stuff when I said I would not :)


I have talked about this in so many videos! It totally helped my hair and I need to rebuy it once I have no more shampoos left.  I love all the products I have tried from them but the conditioner and I just think you need to try the shampoo if you have frizzy, damaged, unmanageable hair like I did.
Counts as 1



This was a nice conditioner.  BUT I never knew it was a leave in treatment till I just read it right now online.  I would either slept with it in my hair or I would use it in the shower.  I think it would work even better as a leave in treatment I just never knew it was, very interesting haha. But as a conditioner you wash out it was one of my favorites.
Counts as 1



I really like this but I will not be repurchasing this any time soon because I have TWO more full bottles.. yeah I know that is bad! I can not believe I have so many bottles of it.  I plenty left so no need to buy another.
Counts as .5


Is that bad that I forgot I had this! I also forgot that I liked it so much.  And you know the worst part, I had 2 bottles, one a little used and other almost empty but I finished one of the two and I will not need to rebuy it for awhile.  I just am amazed I forgot about BOTH bottles.
Counts as .5

Last week 2.5 
+ This week 3
= 5.5
Not to bad, now next week that will be the long week! I mean it this time, I am so close to finishing up a lot of face washes and some styling products.  I have not finished as many face washes and acne products as I would like but it is not like I am buying another new so it is all good ;)

Project Empty Bottle III

I have been so good with finishing up my bottles! I usually update this on Wednesday so sorry for being a little late but this week was a little slow compared to my last week, which you can check out here and if you have no idea what I am talking about you can click here and read all about it :)

This week I finished up 3 different products.


This was a huge bottle and I can not believe I finally finished it up.  This conditioner totally saved my hair and I was little upset when I finished it because of how much I loved it and how expensive it was.  But I plan to buy it again in the future.
Counts as 1



Another product that worked wonderfully in my hair.  It got my hair clean without stripping it.  This shampoo actually put moisture and shine back in hair and it totally change my hair texture.  I have talked about this line in a ton of videos and will be buying it again, it is not only affordable but it works.
Counts as 1



I can not believe I still had something left in this bottle.  I got this conditioner for my birthday in a set from my parents and I just left it in my shower for months without using it.  I had forgotten how awesome JOICO is, I want to buy my next shampoo from them just because I remembered how amazing the line was.
Counts a .5

Total this week - 2.5


I still have 4 more shampoos, 2 or 3 conditioners, 2 hair masks, loads of after shower hair products and more face products then I can count. I have not finished any skin care products this week but I am getting to the end of a few of them and I think next week my list we will very very long. But this project is going very well and I will not buy any shampoos or conditioners till I need to and have ZERO left haha :)

I did not finish 7 bottles but I did end up getting something for my face!  My mom bought it for me and it was the Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths.  I needed them for after my gym class to cleanse my face without having to wash it.  I told my mom I was going to wait to buy it and she knew how badly I needed them so she just bought them for me :)

Project Empty Bottle II

This is my second update for my own version of "Project 10 Pan" or Project Empty Bottle.  Check out the first one here :)

I have finished up quite a few more bottles and I have the tally at 2.5 and since my last week I finished up some face and hair products that put me at 7!  I even ended up picking up a hair item from Ulta that I will talk about later on.


Love Love Love! such an awesome face wash, it has seriously helped my skin so much.  I have raved about it in past videos and I will without a doubt be repurchasing it!
Counts as 1



I think this is a nice deep conditioner.  I love the results I just wish it was more easily available, the only way I can pick it up is if I order it from amazon.  Because I can not go to walmart or a local store I do not think I will be repurchasing it.  The online price is pretty expensive and shipping is a lot too :(
Counts as 1



I had two bottle of this shampoo open at the same time and I finally finished one of the two! This shampoo will always be in my shower.  It leaves my hair looking great and it has actually made my hair grow faster.  One of the best shampoos out there :)
Counts as .5



I love this dry shampoo and this bottle is pretty new.  Isa has been using it with me but I will count it as 1 bottle.  I did pick up a new dry shampoo and if I do not like the new one this one will be repurchased.  I have raved about it in the past and it is great to give you fresh clean looking hair. 
Counts as 1



Finally finished this conditioner.  This bottle seemed to last a while and I have been using it so i could finally get it out of the shower.  Even though I wanted to be done with it it doesn't mean that I did not like this.  I actually really loved it.  I think I love to many products and as most of the others I will be wanting to use this for my hair in the future.
Counts a .5



I actually finished two bottles of this! I was using two at the same time and both only had a little left.  I want this scrub to be my daily face wash so I will be repurchasing this and using it for a long time.  I rave about it all the time and love the results it gives my skin.
Counts as .5

This was a good week for using products and I did reward myself for finally finishing 7 in the last 2 weeks.  I am getting done with a few more bottles and I am proud of myself for reducing my collection so much!!


My One Purchase

Isa and I both wanted to try this and we plan no sharing it.  I would still count this as my one item when I finished 7 bottles.

Louis Vuitton Wish List!

I really wanted to write more random blog post since as of right now most, expect for a few, of my blog post relate directly to a video.  I will still be doing that but I just wanted to also write posts on things that I either can not make a video on or things that are just to random for a video ;)

As some of you might know I love handbags, they are my total guilty pleasure and if I could I would buy every single one I like; but that is unrealistic because one I would not have the money and two I would never be able to appreciate the bag if I just keep buying new ones.  But if I was going to buy a few new bags all but one (that one other would be from Chanel) would be from my favorite accessary (I do not want to say handbags because they have so many other great things and I do not want to say fashion because they do not have my favorite clothing lol) designer, Louis Vuitton.  What girl does not love LV.

I currently have one Louis Vuitton bag which my parents bought for me as a graduation present from high school.  I was torn between the Speedy 35 and Alma but I went with the Monogram Canvas Speedy 35 because that was my dream bag forever!


Since then I have not bought any other LV bags but I did buy the Zippy Organizer in Damier Ebene Canvas.  The damier ebene is my second favorite print, and monogram is of course my favorite.



I have spent hours browsing online and in stores looking at different bags.  Below is a list and links to each item I would hopefully be able to add to my collection in the future.


The perfect carry on bag

I would never want LV luggage unless I was on my own private jet because otherwise the bag would be thrown around and ruined.  A carry on is nice because it will be with you on the plane and it will be perfect for weekend road trips.  This is probably the first item on my wish list that I will buy.

Cute shape and size

I love the alma shape.  The one downside to this alma is that it is not that big.  I love oversized bags that fir everything and while this bag will fit everything I need it is not huge.  This is more of an everyday bag when I am not in school.  (there is no way a book could fit in there)  I also like the Monogram Canvas Alma MM because it is much larger and while it is the same shape the bags looks very different.

Classic and perfect tote

Oh the neverfull, another classic and popular LV shape.  The MM is perfect for class, I really like the GM too but I am worried it would just be to big! if that is even possible.  While the Damier Ebene canvas PM is a great everyday tote and the red lining is such a fun touch!

Unique and beautiful

Wow, I love this bag.  Isa was the first one to show it to me and tell me how much she loves it, now Isa is not a big LV fan (she likes gucci more) so for her to love a LV bag it must be amazing.  I do not think I have ever seen anyone with this bag in person and I kind of like that, it would be nice to have a bag not many people have.  And I just really love the unique shape!


An interesting fact that some people may not have known is Louis Vuitton bags do not go "on sale" you will not find a clearance bag like some designers do but there are some outlet Louis Vuitton stores that carry older season bags at a discount.  But you will not find a Speedy 35 or any of the bags I listed above on the sale rack so I better start saving.

Please note that this is all what I would like but I am not buying all of these bags anytime soon, I many never buy any of these bags I just like to look and "dream" about maybe buying one or all.  But odds are I would not buy these bags for years to come and it would be over my life time.
