Porcelain Skin Foundation Routine

Lethal Kitten's Porcelain Skin Foundation Routine


Hello,
As a lot of people can probably tell, I have extremely fair skin. I purposely keep this pale to maintain my complexion by staying out of the sun and pretty much bathing in sun screen when I come out of my coffin *insert stereotypical vampire joke here*
Since the last time I made a blog post on what I use for porcelain/extremely fair skin, I have changed a lot of products. So today I will show you my updated routine and the pros and cons of each product so you can see if the products are fit for you!




----------------
My current face products used for my foundation routine:
+ Revlon ColorStay Foundation - 110 Ivory ($9.99 Target)
+ MAC Face and Body Foundation - White ($35 from MAC)
+ NYX HD Photogenic Concealer - CW02 ($4.99 Ulta)
+ NYX Blotting Powder - Light ($11.99 Ulta)
I always initially start with a moisturizer if I use this combination of products. Especially when using MAC's Face and Body because it is likes to empha…

The Cold-Hearted Truth

Something I've never really gotten used to is blogging. I think it's because it's so foreign to me, but nonetheless I don't really understand it. At first when I started this blog I wanted to use it with my DeviantArt account and be able to write how I feel and express my thoughts. 
Well, unfortunately that only happened for a few months. 
Right now I don't know how to explain it, but I just don't feel like myself.  I sometimes feel as if I'm a body who is just walking around with a set schedule to do, but no motivation to venture out from it. Almost as if on a 24/7 routine. 
I don't know why but I have no motivation to even make art, take photos, or any of that.
I just want to be by myself
Sometimes I post things and sometimes I don't. Im never really attached to the things I post and just more so post it for the watchers I have on dA who enjoy seeing my photos. I used to be the type of person who went out of my way to get a glimpse at a pretty sit…

Nasty But Delicious Smoothie

Image
Hi Everyone, 
I made another awesome smoothie earlier today. Let me tell you it looks absolutely disgusting and pretty much resembles diarrhea. But don't let that turn you off from trying it. 
The Deceiving Smoothie

You Will Need: 1 Cup Fresh Kale
1 Green Apple
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries (You can use fresh as well)
1 Lemon
1 Cup Almond Milk (I used the vanilla flavored one)
What I do is I first chop up my apple into little bite size chunks about a 1/2 inch or so. I than stick the kale first into the blender so its constantly getting mixed (Lets be honest, nobody wants green leafy chunks in their smoothie). I than add the apple chunks on top of the kale, than the strawberries. After this I splash about a cup of almond milk on top than squeeze a fresh lemon before I start mixing. 
Pre-warning: The apple can be over powering if you don't watch it. If you want you could just add just a half an apple instead and more strawberries.  
This smoothie with my recipe is very tart. If you…

Easiest Beginner Green Smoothie Without Fail

Image
Hi everyone, 
I'll be completely honest, I am not the healthiest eater that there is. I love cookies, chocolate, and mac and cheese too much. But since I'm gaining the pounds from college (freshman 15 do I need to say more?) I've been trying to eat healthier. After drinking tons of those Green Machine Naked Juice drinks, I thought I'd start trying to make my own....and this is what I got. 
The easiest fool proof green smoothie that doesn't taste weird. 
Strawberry - Banana - Kale
Smoothie 
All you will need
+ 1-2 Cups of Kale + 1-2 Cups Frozen Strawberries + 1 Ripe Banana  + 1 Cup Almond Milk (Vanilla flavor is what I used)
If you don't like banana all too much, just add less. It can be extremely overpowering and take over the taste of the overall smoothie. So I recommend just to compensate with more strawberries if you choose to use less banana.
If you add too much or too little it'll just end up tasting more like banana or strawberry. 
So it's pretty f…

The True Facts About Going Cruelty Free

Hello everyone,
I never really made a post about this, but Im trying to go 100% cruelty free with products. It's quite the challenge, and sometimes I slip, but I'm trying my best.
You may think it's simple, but it really isn't. It's difficult, annoying, tedious, and you have to be passionate to be able to keep with it.
Here's the nitty gritty truth about trying to go cruelty free and my own experiences.
1.) You probably won't be able to buy most of the products you love now.
Whether you use high end or drugstore products you probably won't be able to repurchase most of them. MAC, Sephora brand, Urban Decay, Lancome, Revlon, Maybelline, L'Oreal, etc. Are all not cruelty free. Any product that is sold in either Japan or China are not cruelty free and undergo animal testing to be able to be sold on the market. Also, a lot of the companies like Bare Minerals, NARS, Tarte, etc. say they are cruelty free but are owned by companies that do animal testing (…
