This week on Trendmood1 | Carts & Farts

Welcome back to another edition of Cart or Fart! I lose my interest in Trendmood every so often because there is only so many warm toned shadows, and buttery bronzers I can look at as new releases, and react in a surprised way. Eventually all I can think is ‘alright, next please’, and then I just stop checking entirely.

However I think it’s time to discuss whats going in my Cart, and what’s being directed into the Doo Doo bowl.

My Palette Collection

My apologies for two video posts in such quick succession, however I need to call out my failure in time management this weekend. I managed to take little to no blog pictures, as well as instagram photots. I slept in both days, and I normally take all my required photos between 6am and 8am on Saturday’s and Sundays.

However, I did managed to film a ton of videos, one of which is my palette collection, and something I have been promising to provide an update on for about a month now. So here she be!

Hopefully back to regular scheduled programming ASAP!

Read this before you head to the Makeup Aisle!

This is an interesting theory which I have never really thought about until recently, and now I feel like I have been sucked in without even noticing it. I wish I could remember who originally came up with this theory but I know it was a YouTuber, and if I can ever find them I will come back and update that info.

BUT. What is the Pop? It’s that one – four shades that sucks you into that palette full of browns and neutrals. This immediately makes us feel like we HAVE to buy these products and they are brand new and we couldn’t possibly be able to have this in our collection somewhere else… What is this you say? This couldn’t possible be happening! Let me show you….

Do you see whats happening here? When I originally found this my mind was blown, so the next time you are hitting that makeup aisle, cover up the brights… and see if you already have that palette in your collection, because I bet you do!

Using Bright Eyeshadows

Happy Friday Junior!

It’s been an intense week people. Just totally exhausting so I apologize for the lack of voice over on this video, but you basically get the jist of it either way.

Something that is near and dear to my heart is being able to express yourself through makeup, and essentially wear what you want. I have been getting some requests lately on how I incorporate colour into my daily wear making, and how I would include red shades, which leads to this quick 2 minute tutorial on exactly that! I used the Juvia’s Place Magic palette through the entire tutorial, so if you have it you should be able to follow along with relative ease.

Any fun plans for the weekend?!

The Makeup Mess Tag

To My Fellow Youtubers: Are you seeing random subscriber dumps all of a sudden? Where you lose a few subs an hour? I am… Just wondering if its me/my content or YouTube is doing another fake account dump. Let me know!

Over the weekend I made some connections via Instagram and ended up doing The Makeup Mess Tag with Beauti by Angela.

This tag was created by Spooky Lips Fat Hips, and if you like to follow real women on YouTube shes going to be right up your ally.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoy our videos!

Wear What you Want | You CAN Pull That Off

Time for another rant, and this one has been a long time coming. One of the most frustrating things I see in this community is “Oh I could never pull that off” or “Oh man I love that but I would be too scared to wear it.”images

We constantly preach about how we need to be accepting of all, and equal treatment etc, but the amount of women who are AFRAID to go outside wearing something they like for fear of backlash is a THING. It’s a REAL THING.

This may not be my most popular post and is likely an unpopular opinion, but there has to be something going on here. I have asked why in when someone has been deemed “brave” for leaving the house with a red lip. It makes the word “brave” lose its meaning for me, and really chaps my ass. The answer I typically get is “oh I’m just an introvert/insecure/people are mean” etc.

So there is no confusion I completely understand some people prefer to live as a wallflower, they do not want to bring attention to themselves at all. Which I can get down with. I wouldn’t exactly describe myself as a person who wants to be the center of attention either. Speak on it girl.

The point of this rambly post? WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT. The amount of times I have gone out, wearing unconventional makeup/lipstick and no one has looked at me or said a damn word is countless. Not to mention the times I do this, and I get compliments from strangers. 300% more compliments on my makeup than a regular day. (<—-This is a proven statistic from scientists).GksBP.jpg

If you don’t want to wear bright green eyeshadow, or blue lipstick, that is perfectly okay. But if you do, please DO IT. Do not fear people in public commenting, because I can tell you from experience – They don’t care. If they do care? Not your problem, that’s their problem.

There is no “pulling something off” It’s either on your face or it isn’t. Know what you like and what works for you, and go with that. If you like something and you think you aren’t pulling it off, change the undertone, because that’s probably what you are seeing that you don’t like.

I wish you all to do you, and do it well. Be happy, and wear whatever you want!

Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Retractable |I’m Feeling Gassy Again

Happy Monday morning internet friends! I hope this week treats you well, and all of your hopes and dreams come true. <— Including any and all wishes of marrying rich, and winning the lottery.

I intend to finish up all of the Wet n Wild product reviews this week, so we are going to start with another big poofter. Please keep in mind these are always my own opinions, so if these products are exactly what you are looking for, it’s all you honey. DO IT!

Ultimate Retractable Brow Pencil | Price: $6.29 CAD

ClaimsInsta-worthy! Fill in and define your brows with our unique triangular pencil tip. It creates strokes small enough to look like your finest hairs and sharpens the edges of those brows with rub-resistant pigments. Brush and blend it all out with the pencil’s built-in spoolie. When you’re done, the tip retracts for quick-and-easy storage in your makeup bag.

The only positive I will give this product, is the spoolie. High five for a good quality spoolie. IMG_7561.JPG

But here in lies my real issue. WHY IS THIS TRIANGLE SO BIG? I find this near impossible to work with unless I want to look like a crazy sharpie eyebrow lady. Which works for some but not for me.  Continue reading “Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Retractable |I’m Feeling Gassy Again”
