Hey guys… Okay so let me tell you. If you are trying to keep your makeup on all freaking day then you are about to read the right blog. If you are going to do an event or going on date night, clubbing, bday party or just want to impress people with ur flawless face then you need to bake and buff!!! People think just baking and leaving the lose powder sitting on ur face it will do the trick. NOOO ur wrong. Here’s what you NEED to be doing… Once you have applied ur foundation, concealer and pressed powder… Take ur translucent powder and apply it under ur eyes and around ur mouth and contour. Right away dust it off. It doesn’t need to sit there for ever idk why girls do that. Dust it off and apply ur highlighter and blush. Once you have done that… This is the trick that really makes shit amazing. Take a buffing brush and your pressed powder and buff it into ur skin with circular motions, get that pressed powder really into your skin. Yes guys… This step is over the highlighter and blush but believe me your face will look FLAWLESS and PORELESS needless to say it will look amazing in photos.
P.S for girls that are my skin color.. Do NOT use a white or yellow powder to set the under eye. You want to use a pinkish powder to set the under eye because it eliminates all the black and really stands out more!!!
Hey guys, everyone knows that contouring makes the biggest difference when it come to makeup! But do we really have to heavily highlight and contour to achieve a slimmer nose and more defined cheek bones!!??! I THINK NOT… Haha. Okay guys… I have been so fuckin lazy lately. When I do full glam it’s like WoW I have accomplished something today lol..
So yesterday I put some music on (Havana nights soundtrack YAS!) and started my makeup. I loved the turn out. I legit blew up my snapchat yesterday., because when makeup is on FLEEK it’s got to be known and shown. LoL.
Okay my trick to a lifted slim nose. What I do is take an eyeshadow brush and my bronzer (Benefit Hoola) and make two very VERY light narrow lines going down the sides of my nose. Then I make a light line across to give it that bubble look as well and do bronze under by my nostrils. Once I have done this I then use my MAC NC5 powder to draw a line in the middle and on the tip. Once you do all this just lightly with your powder brush slightly blend it all in for the most natural look!!!!!! If this doesn’t make sense let me know and I will do a blog post with step by step pictures to show how it’s done…. Yeah I am that nice!! What can I say. Hahaha… Jk!
Oh and don’t forget to use a nice golden (white undertone) highlighter with the same shadow brush pick some up and apply it ONLY on the tip of the nose and from between the brows straight down. but make sure you don’t connect that line with the tip of ur nose. Gives a much nicer illusion.
Makeup makeup makeup. I have not done a full glam look for a while now and today was the day. I was nice to bake and cake my face. Typically, because I walk a lot here I try and do super light makeup when I go out because I sweat and don’t like a pound of makeup on when that happens lol!!!
Today since the weather isn’t hot or humid I figured lets do this shit!

Youtube… I started youtube a few months ago and I was like okay this is my shit… I am going to make hundreds of videos and become a youtube sensation.. hahahahaha NOT! I didn’t realize how much time and effort filming a video takes. What people watching see in 15min takes about an hour to film and about 4 hours to edit lol. But I didn’t mind it. I really enjoyed it and it kinda went from strictly makeup videos to all kinds of videos. Recently I have been getting more subscribers and I thought okay its time to make another video, considering a month had lapsed since my last one. Soooooo I set up all the lights and camera and blah blah blah… I filmed a 45 minute fuckin video only to HATE IT.
Hahah so let me say why I hated it. I was like happy dandy the first half of the video.. and then the second half I was like omg why am I so ugly right now..lmao. YES this happens to us all at some point in our life. Well for me its often. People assume because I get so many compliments I am the most confident person alive.. and most the time I am because I am happy within, but last night I had a moment guys.. I looked at the projector and was like damn I look so fucking ugly, pale and fat right now haaha.. so after crying for about 10min I just closed my camera without shooting and intro and walked out!!!! LOL I am fucking crazy I know but I am real and I am human. I don’t want to come off as fake and yaaaaay I am perfect cuz I am far from it. We all have our moments and I wanted to share that last night was mine… to be honest Id much rather be in New York for fashion week than shooting a Youtube video…..COMMON FASHION PEOPLE SEND ME ALREADY!! haha
POINT OF THE STORY: I AM JUST AS HUMAN AS YOU ARE AND WE ALL HAVE OUR “FUCK IM UGLY RIGHT NOW” MOMENTS!!
Of course.. had I filmed an Intro I would have probably uploaded the video today because I snapped out of that shit real quick!! and that ladies and gents is how the cookie crumbles.. in a girls world at least!!!
Here is the look I was supposed to share but didn’t…
P.S If you look closely at the pic above you will spot a WHITE FUCKIN STRAND OF HAIR… Im getting old!!!!
Let me ask you guys… Do you ever get so bored that you’re like “hmmm I’m about to take a shower so let me go all out and do my makeup just to make sure I still look bomb AF”… its not just me right!!???!?!? lol (I know I don’t stand alone)
I figured I typically never wear this much makeup anymore and if I do its for a nice night out, date night or some event or some shit.. aside from that I barely even apply foundation these days.. its concealer, set it, mascara and I am out the door! Therefore, today I was like Im gonna go wash my face right after anyway so let me just make sure I still got this whole makeup thing in the bag… not that I doubted myself but for some reason us girls always need to be reassured of our amazing qualities and talents hahaha!!! (ya, I know I don’t stand alone on that one either) lol. Anwayway.. I honestly loved the outcome. I actually missed spending 40 minutes doing my makeup.. even though I hate washing it all off.. but like most things its a love hate relationship so #thuglife.
Get ready for the list because its fucking long

Yeah you read that tittle correctly. If you follow me on instagram you will quickly notice my love for makeup is REAL. I kid you not.. I have spent hundreds of dollars on makeup testing everything out. If I see something on instagram and love it I must go buy it and try it. I have gone through soooooooooo many fuckin brands and foundations and needless to say I ALWAYS end up with my true love.
Foundation: L’OREAL TRUE MATCH
Okay guys. I just gave away my flawless face secret tip. This foundation is probably the only foundation that sits on my face the entireeeeeee day without smudging, flaking, creasing or any of that stuff. It also doesn’t transfer very easily which is a plus. Aside from all those pros.. this foundation legitimately makes my skin look airbrushed. I almost never have to smooth out my selfies and in real life it does not look caky what so ever. I mean I praise this foundation in my youtube videos, on my instagram and I believe I have even mentioned it on here before. I know some people may think just because its not a fancy shmancy brand it must not be as good. That is so fucking wrong. I thought like that also. I thought if my foundation isn’t brand name and doesn’t cost over $45 it is not worthy. LOL. Actually I really never thought like that but I know some of you out there have and do.
This foundation is a game changer and it is a drug store brand which is amazing. I have every shade in this for different seasons of course and I am currently using SHADE W4. It’s still a bit dark but if I go any lighter I will look like a ghost so I apply W4 with a lighter shade setting powder to match my skin perfectly. Seriously guys give this a go and use the whole bottle before you judge… even though you won’t need to go through that much to realize I am the best thing that happened in you’re life for mentioning this.. hahah love you guys!!!! P.S This foundation is Medium/Full Coverage & very buildable
Below Pic is from yesterday. I was sitting in sunlight and have NOT smoothed my skin. This is just the lighting and THE FOUNDATION!!!
L’oreal True Match, This link will take you to the exact foundation I am talking about just incase you want an image of it!
Have you ever woke up tired and lazy but you manage to turn on some music and apply a full face of makeup and get dressed and just not go anywhere? I can’t be the only one right! Yah one of those days where you make a big ass cup of black coffee with an entire block of dark chocolate and just chill. I was going to go out but.. walking my dogs earlier I nearly froze so I just decided I wasn’t going to do shit! Although however I am going to hit the gym up tonight… once my coffee digests a bit lol!!! So yeah, just laying with a full face of makeup and waiting till I find the energy to leave for the gym….. what a challenge! lol (don’t judge)
At least my makeup is on point.. I actually took my time doing it today. For some reason when I have music playing I get into the application of applying makeup so much more.. who else is like that?!
I have been trying to get back down a few pounds that I have gained since I left Los Angeles but its been so hard for me for some fucking odd reason but this year I am determined… like for real! Hence the fact that I am going to the gym. To be very honest I fucking hate the gym. I love out door activities soooo much more.. like bike riding, hiking, swimming.. etc.. the gym is so boring and nothing but guys checking you out…. lol the struggle! Nevertheless it is necessary to do whatchu gotta do. Hoping tomorrow is a more exciting day….
run errands. I typically live in work out clothes.. I always try to go for a different alternative but common, who doesn’t love a good pair of black Nikes or leggings and some comfortable sneakers paired with an over sized shirt. This is the girls “heaven”. Even for those who are super high fashion… we all dress down from time to time and enjoy wearing something that is just super comfy and easy without having to stand intron of you’re closet for 5 hours trying to figure out whats cute!!
My go-to outfit for running errands or even sometimes shopping or whatever the case may be, whenever I want to be quick and comfortable and manage to look like I still cared… I always turn to my beloved Nike gear. I also either wear Nike or Lululemon… NOTHING ELSE!!! The reason for that is because both these brands have such high quality and there is absolutely nothing I hate more then a pair of Leggings that are shit quality.. plus my lululemons and majority of the Nike leggings I get are all high waisted and suck everything in…. AMAZING RIGHT… I KNOW!! So today I managed to post on my Instagram and Make a makeup tutorial AND go out.. Talented.. yes yes!!
Nike… The new lazy go to outfit for the fashion girl
- JACKET + SHOES + LEGGINGS : NIKE

BRONZED GLAM LOOK!!! Today I felt so inspired to do a Kylie inspired makeup tutorial (which is currently uploading on my channel: sonya sedaghatmehr). I really love her makeup looks on certain days. I love how she has those lashes extending on the outside of her lashes and to be honest for the past week ever since I tested that look out for myself I have been obsessed with placing my long full lashes at the ends of my lash line and using mascara to add my own lashes into the mix!!! The products used for this long are said on my tutorial hope you guys likeeeeeee!!!

Okay I have to start of my saying that my youtube videos are not as full of personality as Id like them to be.. you’re so limited on the time you tape or it won’t let you post or it takes FOREVER so I have to rush through it lol but you know what fuck it lol Imma take my time today when I do my everyday simple highlight and contour video!!

A little about my video. Its called how to get rid of acne and pores and get flawless skin.. well as flawless as you can. To start, this takes time. Its not magic, sadly…no POOF’S be gone here.. but really I used to struggle not with acne but with 4 to 5 pimples a few years ago. Because my face is SOOOO white when I break out no matter how small the breakout is the entire surrounding area plus the breakout turn super pinkish red. And when you have clear skin and have 4 red big circles on you’re face it draws soooo much more attention to you’re face. On the other hand.. they would come and go rapidly which was nice so no I am not complaining and my heart goes out to those struggling with acne. I honestly can’t get enough of talking about my simple skin regimen. Its so practical and affordable and it had worked miracles for my skin. I know I slightly touched out on this on my blog.. and if you follow me on my blog, youtube and instagram you know that there are three products I seriously need in my daily life ALWAYS… 1. Dial soap 2. Neutorgena sunscreen 110 and 3. Loreal true match foundation
P.S my video light sucks balls.. <— um ew… and today I will make probably one of my better videos so if you like highlight and contour and wonder how I get my face looking the way I do (so lifted) check that out later also!!!
