An Open Letter to All Models ‘Bullying’ Kendall Jenner

Hey everyone!

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw a sponsored-type post about a struggling models letter to Kendall Jenner, and after reading it, I was left simply frustrated. (Here’s the full letter –> An Open Letter To Kendall Jenner About Her Model ‘Bullying’) Overall, the letter wrote to express to Kendall the daily and total life struggle of an every day model working for a spot on the big runway, and how hard life can be for them. She points out how frustrating it can be to other models who have done so much to get a call and then get pushed aside for someone like Kendall, who (presumably) just walks in to whatever she wants and simply gets it because of her families fame and fortunes.

Here’s my outlook on it all:

In many, many, many interviews Kendall has pointed out that modeling is her passion and her dream and something completely separate and singular from her sisters and the show, and that she wants her own light aside in the fashion industry. Not only did she say that, but she mentioned her struggle to be as successful has she has lately and how hard she has had to work for her spot on the runway.

Here are just a couple of interviews where Kendall expresses her journey to catwalk fame: ABC – Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Modeling, teenVogue – KJ in All of Her Up-and-Coming Mega Model Glory

This rant can be understandable, especially from my point of view because on a, most likely weekly basis, I get a bit annoyed with the 17-year-olds driving around in brand new Audi’s and Mercedes’ with no work to be done, while I’m working twelve hours a day to pay for my 2000 Lexus and a community college degree. Yeah, it sucks having to make your way to the top with no support and seeing other people walk into amazing opportunities with no understanding of appreciation and hard work because of their lucky birth rights, but that’s life and life isn’t fair. There’s nothing you or anyone can do to change the individual life that each of us lead and no way to change our born fortunes. And neither I, nor any other opinionated less fortunate individual have the right to comment on the fortunate lives and presume that they don’t understand the worth and don’t apprecaite the things they are handed. We don’t know them personally, do we?

But lets ask one thing – If writer Arisce Wanzer, wants Kendall to be so understanding of a per-say ‘regular’ models trek to success, and wants Kendall to see from their point of view, then maybe she should take a look from Kendall’s, and try to be understanding of her life.

It isn’t her fault she was born into fame and money and if she wasn’t she is still beautiful and fit to be a model and would be a successful one, regardless of her fortunes. So I don’t agree with this at all and I think it’s completely ignorant.

What do you think?

Dress Like You’re Already Famous

Hey guys!
Sorry I haven’t posted – I’ve been working non-stop! (Literally lol)
Awhile ago I saw this post of a quote on Instagram (via LoveofLabels ) saying, “Dress like you’re already famous”, and I loved it! Then, I got to thinking… I admire all of the celebrities and their streetstyle – casual heels and jeans; crop tops and low rise jeans; skin tight plain/casual skirts and tops… But is this really an acceptable societal normal for the average person? (not that any of you are average, I mean in the way that we aren’t celebrities under the spotlight with high fashion expectations)
To the mall and lunch with a girl friend, is a pair of heels and jeans or a spandex tight skirt, normal?
I guess as an adult, like my mom per say, who is 40 and a working woman and mother of 5, wearing heels with everything on a daily basis is normal. But as myself, the 20 year old college student who aspires to dress the best, is it really an accepted norm?
For instance, Kendall and Kylie Jenner who are even still teenagers, go out in their heels and skirts, crop tops, and majority of their skin showing, but yet still in the most classy fashionable way. They look normal and casual chic. But I can’t get past the fact that as an average shaped, sized, human not walking on the streets of LA or NYC, I don’t truly believe that this is an normal acceptance in society.
Do you think one can dress as a celeb on an average day and pull it off as an acceptable, classy, casual look?

Let me know your thoughts!

Kylie Jenner Makeup

Hey loves!

So I’ve had this huge obsession with Kylie Jenner’s makeup lately (specifically her lips). So after visiting Sephora yesterday, I found some great items! After some work, I think I’ve managed it. I’m no makeup artist (even though I wish I could be!), so this is the best shot I have! This is for all of you lovelies who want just a basic way to get a great look – Here are the simple steps and cheap items I used to get this it-

We all know Kylie Jenner has never had big lips; they were actually very small, until now!

So what her makeup artists have clearly done is when they put lipliner on her, they go just a bit above her real lip line. So i tried this! I followed my lip line of course, but i made the line thicker so it went above a bit. It made my lips look fuller and of course, bigger!

I used a $5.00 lip liner stick from Sephora, made by Sephora. The color is Radiant Rosy. My color is a bit darker than Kylie’s, so this may only be a night color. It looks really dark in the pictures, but isn’t actually that dark.

I winged out my eye liner. I usually do this on a daily basis anyway. I use Maybelline Eye Studio Gel pot eyeliner, which comes with a brush too. I’ve been using this one for years, and even after using a MAC one, this one still is the best! And only $9 at any pharmacy or supermarket!

I would have put on fake eyelashes, but I currently have no glue 😦

I put on MAC Mineralize Moisture Broad Spectrum liquid foundation NC35. This goes best with my skin color, but Kylie has pretty light skin, so if you’re trying to look exactly like her, then I would use the lightest foundation you have. I recommend any Maybelline of your choice from a drug store!

It doesn’t seem as thought she wears much blush at all, and if she does it would be almost a honey like color. I used just a little bit of very light pink blush, Estee Lauder Peach Passion, but you can use what you prefer. Another great light, pink blush that is cheap is NYX stick blush in Orchid at any drug store or supermarket!

I typically use my MAC Refined Golden bronzer, but this time I used Bronze Booster in Medium to Dark, which I bought at Walgreens.

For my eyebrows, I used this amazing Sephora Crayon Brow Pencil in Rich Chestnut, and it was only $13!

Here’s how my look turned out:
