beauty on a budget: fun and flirty

Sunday, August 19, 2012
Yay! Another back to school looking using some fun colors!!! I LOVE COLOR!!! Especially purple! I think that is one of my favorites shades to wear! I wanted to create a look that is a little bit more "bold" for back to school for those that love to be a bit more bold! It again is a super EASY and quick look but is really beautiful and will flatter ANY eye color!!!

I am again using the Wet N Wild Color Icon Palettes but this is the Petal Pusher Palette. I love this palette because it has some beautiful purple and pinky shades that are pigmented and very blendable. My best tip when using these shadows is to not blend too much otherwise you will blend them to nothing!!!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial!!!!

Simple Back To School Look on a Budget

Saturday, August 18, 2012

It is about that time again for back to school videos!!! Although it has been YEARS since I have actually been back to school I found this to be a great opportunity to think back to what I would have worn when I was in high school or college. Now don't think that you have to be going to school to wear this look! This is a great work look also just an everyday face!

All the products used were from the drugstore which is even better! Who doesn't love beauty on a budget!!!! I find that the Wet N Wild palettes are some of the best eye shadows that the drugstore offers! They are extremely inexpensive as well as HIGHLY pigmented!!! The Vanity Palette is one of my all time favorites from the Wet N Wild Line!!!

Also how can you forget about the amazing Maybeline 24 hour Color Tattoos!!! I have found Bad to the Bronze is one of my most used eye shadow bases!!!

I can't believe it has been so long since I wrote a blog post!!! I think a large part of it was due to the fact that I wasn't proud of my blog. I am in no way "blog/layout/website" savvy so I had no clue where to start. Thanks to one of my amazing friends on Youtube, Wendy aka bentleyblonde, she referred me to the amazing Jenn Staz ( She was so easy to work with and I gave her two words to describe what I wanted "Shabby Chic." With those 2 words she created a blog design that was better than I could have ever imagined!!! I am finally so PROUD of my blog that I actually want to write in it and keep up with it!!!!

Another friend of mine Anna from gave me the great advise to "Be Consistent." That when people subscribe to your blog they start to build a routine out of reading your new posts and start to expect your posts the same days every week. This was great advice as I am fairly consistent with my YouTube videos (Post about every other day to every 2 days) but my blog on the other hand...well I think that is pretty obvious what happened there.

I feel blessed to have amazing people in my life with amazing talents and advice on how to be successful and make your blog followers, youtube subscribers, etc happy.

Well here is my first post on my NEW and IMPROVED Shadesofkassie blog! So welcome and expect more frequent posts!!!!!!!
