Procrastination

 

Hello everyone, it’s Sophia. This topic is not beauty or anything but I just wanted to say, DONT PROCRASTINATE! I had a great blog idea and I typed it half way through but then it was a little while later when I realized it was no longer relevant and couldn’t be posted. Procrastination is stressful and isn’t the best thing to do. From experience, don’t procrastinate. Btw I will be posting tomorrow with an actual post that is usefulūüėā.

First Day at My First Job

Hello everyone! SophiasSelection here! I wanted to share my first working experience with you guys. So as I decided money doesn’t grow on trees and makeup isn’t getting any cheaper…. I got a job. Now the thought of working was horrifying at first, especially because I chose lifeguarding. To be honest, it wasn’t as bad as I thought.

I had prepared for this day for 3 months, I was certified and ready for action. Of course I didn’t know anyone but thats ok, you make friends. I walked into the facility in a complete panic. I clocked in and found that manager (weirdly she didn’t tell me her name). I was explained the rules and then thrown out onto the deck! Th children laughed and played as I sat there trembling in my chair watching everyone oh so closely. Of course the one kid who never listens had to be there while I was working so my anxiety maxed out.

On my first break I had taken my lunch and talked with the manager. She was surprisingly super nice. I went back out and it happened all over again. From nasty kids to even nasty parents it was a pretty eventful day. A clean up I made sure I did was I needed and survived. It wasn’t that bad. I mean I was thinking i would have to save someone but I’m happy everyone was safe. I mean $9.25 an hour is pretty good so the day was worth it. To anyone who is getting a job or is even becoming a lifeguard, don’t freakout, its not as bad as it seems, I should know, I mean I’m a ball of nerves. I was surprised I made it through the whole day.

Talk to you guys soon!

Amazing Makeup Brands!

Hello again! It’s SophiasSelection! Thanks to one of my friends, I have ¬†found some AMAZING brands for makeup brushes and eyeshadow palettes. So I have compiled a list of brands you guys will love!

The first brand I think is under appreciated is Colour pop. This brand of makeup sells AMAZING eyeshadow shades and beautiful lipstick colors. They also sell eyebrow makeup as well. ¬†Their eyeshadows are VERY pigmented and they have a variety of colors to pick ¬†from! They single eyeshadow pigments are around $5.00 so they won’t empty your pockets.

Another brand that you need to check out is Shanycosmetics. They not only have great eyeshadow palettes, but their makeup brushes are beautiful. They are soft and help your makeup glide on really easily. They have many different types of brush sets, they even have a sale where one of them is worth $10.00!

These two brands have amazing makeup but not a lot of people know about them. I hope this opens your eyes to other brands. Let me know what you want me to post next

Makeup Products That Won’t Empty Your Pockets!

Us makeup lovers know that makeup is not cheap in this day and age. Now not all great makeup has to expensive!  Here are some of my favorite inexpensive makeup products that are affordable and are great quality.

 

First there is Stay Matte Powder from RIMMEL

This powder can be used to keep that foundation and concealer in place. I especially love this powder because you can get this at most drug stores for around $5. I use this after foundation and it keeps my face nice and matte. Oily face is no longer a problem when wearing this powder.

 

Next ¬†The L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

I cannot live without this setting spray! The L’Oreal setting spray is amazing at keeping that makeup on from morning to night! You can get this from many drug stores for around $14.¬†While doing your makeup you CAN’T be without this product! I pesonally have used this before a sweet sixteen and even after the whole party my makeup looked amazing.

 

Lastly  The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer, Brightener

By far my favorite concealer I’ve ever used. This concealer has really great coverage and doesn’t crease easily. I use then when I bake my face and my face looks flawless. Again you can find this at many drug stores for around $7 or $8.
